About Carlos

Growing up in the North Eastern part of the U.S., the winters were cold and long, so we decided to purchase a summer home in warm Florida. But not just anywhere in Florida; we fell in love with the Gulf Coast and especially Longboat Key 26 years prior while on vacation with our then, six month old daughter. Since then we made it a priority to some day buy a second home here. In 2006 and three kids later, our dream became a reality when we purchased this beautiful Mediterranean style home on the Gulf.

Carlos purchased this house in 2006

Why Carlos chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

We had been dreaming of buying a home in beautiful Longboat Key for years. We returned time and time again on vacation to this area. We enjoyed the beautiful clear, warm sandy beach, the friendly people and the slow pace Island living. In 2006 we immediately fell in love with this beautiful Mediterranean style home. It offered everything we were looking for, a wonderfully comfortable home with a great room with a fireplace to gather, relax and enjoy family time with our three kids. A dock for boating, a pool for evening swimming, hot tub for relaxation and a short walk accross the street to the most beautifully kept sandy beach on the Gulf. It also offered a short driving distance to beautiful St. Armands Circle where we enjoy going out to dinner and shopping. Since then, we have enjoyed bicycling, walking, swiming, jet skiing, boating and priceless moments spend with family.

What makes this house unique

You will feel home away from home here. Whether you are laying on the day bed outside on the terrace with your children looking at shooting stars in the evenings or just gathering as a family in the great room watching a movie or playing games, you will surely enjoy priceless family time and will create lasting memories for years to come as we have with our now grown three kids who still enjoy spending time here with us.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you very much for your comments and feedback, it is always appreciated. We truly apologize for the squeaky bed and toilet handle, I wish we would have been made aware during your stay so that it would have been corrected.

We supply all of our guest with about a day or two worth of start up supplies, garbage bags, soap, paper towels, sanitary items, etc. enough to help the guest get settle, but not enough to last your rental period.

Again, we apologize and welcome your feedback, our goal is 100% guest satisfaction as evident by our prior 20, 5 stars reviews.

The property is well-appointed, well-maintained, spacious, and has all the amenities one could ask.

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about this beautiful home. It was perfect for us in so many ways. It has a well equipped, new kitchen (so well equipped it has a Mr. Coffee, a Keurig, AND an espresso maker!) Everything is clean and bright -- the colors, the linens -- we slept like babies on the mattresses and pillows. The living area is open concept with plenty of room to entertain or find a cozy corner to read in. There's even a little desk in the sunroom; I sat there every day and worked on a manuscript, occasionally looking out to see the three egrets who like to stop by in the afternoon. The beach is just across the street, and it is magnificent -- and not crowded. But the brand new pool is the best -- it's heated, has colored lighting, and looks out on palm trees. So relaxing! Another plus: the owner and his staff are so nice: accommodating, responsive, and gracious. The only way things could have been better is if we'd booked two months instead of one. Five stars plus!

Rooms are big and well decorated. Pool right next door was good. You walk right out of entrance about 35 yards then cross road to direct beach access.

Beautiful little piece of heaven An oasis in our busy world

  • 5 of 5

The house is large and airy we had 5 to 8 people and we all were comfortable. Short 2 min walk to little beach access which was like being in a private beach not busy. Common pool right next door. Every amenity you can think of even an expresso machine and frozen drink blender cable WiFi 2 dryers washer comfortable beds you will not be disappointed. At night enjoy the 2nd floor Balcony where the are chairs to enjoy the starry sky. During the day great private place to sunbathe (no tan lines wink wink) the garage is well stocked with bikes grill beach chairs sand pail and pool floats. Publix Supermarket is short distance away
