About Stephanie Fischer

Originally from Stillwater, Minnesota. Married with two teenage boys. We moved to Florida about ten years ago for the blue skies, sunshine and the beautiful waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

Stephanie Fischer purchased this house in 2011

Why Stephanie Fischer chose Longboat Key

Vacationed in Sarasota for 20 years before finally making the leap and moving down in 2004. Best decision we ever made. Longboat Key is truly the best location in Southwest Florida.

What makes this house unique

You will love the indoor outdoor living. Tropical canal is so close, you can enjoy a stone crab feast on the back deck and throw the shells in the water.

Sleepy Lagoon Bungalow says it all

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful, relaxing stay. It was great to go to the beach early, is there a better way to start the day, and end the day watching the beautiful sunsets. My husband enjoyed playing golf at the near-by golf courses. Shopping and awesome restaurants were near, It was fun to spend time at St Armand’s Circle especially the quaint outdoor restaurants where one could do “people watching”. The hosts,Mike and Stephanie, checked to see if we needed anything and to answer any question. Mike came to the house and put a light in the canal, so we could watch the fish swimming at night. We “loved” it. He also told us about an art show in Sarasota, that we would never have found by ourselves and also told us about some good restaurants. We enjoyed our visit

Relaxing, relaxing, relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The house is very clean, comfortable and convenient to restaurants and shopping. The beach is just a very short walk away. We grilled and enjoyed wine on the spacious back deck. Stephanie has made every effort to insure that her guests have all the little things that separate average homes from excellent ones. All in all it was a very relaxing and enjoyable vacation.

Relaxing home in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

When we rented this house, we had not bought a home in nearby Bradenton. We did find a house so what was supposed to be a relaxing time was filled with home inspections, walk-throughs, unpacking and all the little details that need to be completed before you can move into a new home. It was wonderful to be able to come back to this home after working all day to get the new place ready. We got to stare longingly at our boat, easily parked next to the house and located very near the local boat ramp. We relaxed at night on comfortable furniture before falling into the very comfortable bed with soft sheets. While we took advantage of many of the restaurants located within easy driving distance (Lazy Lobster and Bridge Tender Inn are two of our favorites) we could have used the very well equipped kitchen at the house. This was the best equipped kitchen of all the homes we have stayed at. The closets were also some of the largest we have had. There is a beautiful deck and a fire pit in the back of the house along the canal. We enjoyed sitting out there, reading the newspaper or just watching the water. The only drawback was the water pressure in the showers. This is not the first time we have encountered this on Longboat Key so it must be either the city water system or the age of the homes. Any questions we had were promptly answered by Stephanie, the owner of this great place. All in all, this is a wonderful place to stay and if we weren't lucky enough to now be living so close by, we would definitely stay here again

Beautiful house on the canal, minutes from the beach.

  • 5 of 5

This was definitely one of the nicest, cleanest places we have stayed in. The house has every amenity you could imagine. It is located in a great spot and only minutes from the beach. We loved it and will definitely be back. The only thing I did not get to do was enjoy the lovely pool as the water was a bit chilly for me. If you are considering a place to stay in Longboat Key, this is definitely it. You will not be disappointed and Stephanie was awesome.

Very nice, very clean, great location on north end of island

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to longboat key twice a year for about 12 years. This was defiantly one of the cleanest homes we have ever stayed at, house was very well kept. Nice washer and dryer, good firm mattress in master, nice kitchen, all appliances very nice. Property well kept and close to some of the restaurants we always frequent (Bayou Tavern and Grill, Lazy Lobster, Euphemia Haye, Dry Dock). Good communication with owners, simply can't go wrong with this vacation rental
