This 2400 sq ft four bedroom private home located in the exquisite Country Club Shores neighborhood, offers coastal access with its own dock, an enclosed pool overlooking the waterfront, and a gorgeous gourmet kitchen and plenty of space for tons of beach and waterfront fun. It was completely remodeled in 2014 in brand new coastal contemporary style. The new kitchen has all new stainless steel appliances. The home is walking distance to 3 fabulous beaches.
Location: Known for tasteful luxury and manicured surroundings, Longboat Key is rich in gorgeous beaches, wildlife and upscale amenities. High-end boutiques and five-star restaurants make it an ideal destination for vacationers who like their beaches on the swankier side. Ignored by spring breakers and devoid of the garish attractions that characterize many Florida beach towns, Longboat Key is one of quietest barrier islands on the Gulf Coast—and all the more beloved for it. Yet, it doesn’t mean it isn’t close to activity. The house is just a short drive to the Mote Aquarium or downtown Sarasota for shopping or to take in the art museum.

The Equity Residences' Longboat Key property is a gem that sits on the water and includes a private dock. We completely remodeled this property in 2014 and furnished it with exquisite pieces from Restoration Hardware, West Elm and Pottery Barn.
We enjoyed the home. It was everything that was advertised on the website. It also provided everything we needed for our weeks stay
We did have to chase down some small lizards that got in but we understand that this is Florida and that can happen
The problem we did have were ants. The morning of the second day they were by the kitchen sink and then on the stove We did clean the area and sprayed. We then noticed them in the second bathroom sink and by the light switch. I called Mike Drake who came by and put out some traps. On the third day we noticed ants on the large table where we ate. Now we did not keep any food out anywhere on the counters or table. We had to be very conscious of what food we prepared to watch for ants This was very annoying after a couple days. Although our stay was good I would have to think about renting that house in the future unless the ant situation was addressed
Lastly, we spent a lot of time in the pool and the pool area. The family suggested that a third bathroom be put in where the shower is located in the garage. That way you wouldn't have to walk through the whole house each time
That's it. I hope this is helpful
My family and I had a great week vacationing on Longboat Key in early January 2016. We had rented the house on Schooner. Very attractive residence with ideal location. We thoroughly enjoyed spending time outback and watching the pelicans dive for their food. We even were able to play pool, relax in the hot tub and by the pool as we enjoyed our days. We were close to very good restaurants and close to the beaches. The bicycles were great and we were able to burn off some calories each day exploring the area. This gave us a good excuse to eat more as well! We were only a mile or so from St. Armand Circle in Sarasota, which was really a neat place to dine and window shop. We look forward to hopefully renting a house through EquityResidences in another great part of the country. Thanks.
Great location on Long Boat Key. Close to Sarasota, numerous beaches nearby on LBK, many with easy parking (October). The house has 4 nice bedrooms, a large master bathroom and one guest bathroom. Nice design and furniture. The pool and hot tub were nice. The heating controls for pool and hot tub are wireless and a bit confusing; only one zone can be heated at once. The coordinator and property manager were very responsive and helpful with any questions. We used the canal and dock for our boat, this has quick access to Sarasota Bay and the Gulf via the nearby pass. The landscaping is very nice! The welcome basket was very thoughtful and a nice treat. The garage has 2 paddle boards, a kayak (2 seater) and 4 bikes. The daily fee that is charged does not include any housekeeping or added perks, but certainly pays for the pool heater and AC. This is a very enjoyable property for a family.
We visited Longboat Key with our (21) year old twins over the 4th of July Holiday and had a great time. The home is everything shown in the pictures and more. The furnishings looked like something out of a Southern Living magazine and the amenities that come with the house were equally outstanding. The house is located in a quiet neighborhood so very laid back. The property manager is very easy to work with and was very responsive to any request. Everything aspect of the property exceeded our hopes and expectations.
We had some friends join us and there was plenty of room for everyone. All of the rooms are very large, especially the master bedroom and the two bathrooms. The swimming pool and hot tub are right off of the kitchen and the bay is less then fifteen yards from the back of the house. On the second morning my wife and daughter were paddle-boarding in the bay and were greeted by two very friendly manatees that were hanging. We rented a boat from Cannon’s Marina and taking advantage of the boat dock at the house.
If you are looking for a great home that is near beautiful beaches, golf courses, and on the water this is your spot!
Great location, clean house, great service. Quick 5 minute drive to restaurants.
Easy access to sand bars (for boaters), just watch your depth finder, bay is shallow. Find channels and STAY in them.
The house is situated in a quiet residential street less than 5 minutes drive to St Armands Circle, the beach or the supermarket making the location perfect. The water front setting is fantastic for fishing, boating, kayaking and paddle boarding, all of which we enjoyed very much!
The house itself is extremely well maintained and furnished to a very high standard. It was immacuately clean and had everything to make your stay hassle free and enjoyable. The pool and pool table were a big hit with our teenagers, as was the fast wifi!
The Dry Dock restaurant is an easy 5 minute walk away and serves lovely fresh sea food. If you want something a bit different try The Shore Diner at St Armands, the food and service we had was outstanding.
The owners were a pleasure to deal with. Always replying promptly and professionally to any questions. Our security deposit was refunded very quickly.
I would have no hesitation staying at this house again or recommending it for a relaxing and fun filled vacation.
