About the property

'Very Welcoming & Peaceful' - several times quoted from our Guests Book. Best value on Longboat Key...

Longboat Key is one of the most beautiful and secure barrier islands off of the west coast of Florida. Our townhouse is within a short walk to a nature lovers paradise - a 32 acre park which is well maintained and beaming with birds and other wildlife of the area with enchanting boardwalks through the mangroves and ample resting areas overlooking breathtaking Sarasota Bay.

Our guests have caught several kinds of game fish in the canal next to your patio. Our smoke-free home is a very special place reserved for only a few. Make your reservation early.

Absolutely beautiful, completely renovated and updated with all of the amenities that you would only find in units costing much, much more.

About Jim Quinn

I love the island and meeting interesting guest from around the world. We truly live in paradise. I live across the street with my lovely wife Elaine and we are at the beach for sunsets often.

We are blessed to live our life here.

Jim Quinn purchased this house in 2003

Why Jim Quinn chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

Very quiet neighborhood, not a condo setting. Walk to 3-4-5 star restaurants. 1000 feet to a breathtakingly beautiful 32 acre park with walks and boardwalks through the mangroves with overlooks of Sarasota bay.

What makes this house unique

Quiet, comfortable, secure, feels like home. Great place to read a book, or write one....

My husband and I have been to Long Boat Key several times over the last few years. It's a beautiful place to visit. This past summer we took my parents and 2 children. It was a wonderful, relaxing time. The house was perfect for us (my son is an infant, so we rented a crib). My husband and father fished off the patio every day, we walked to the beach almost every day. The house was immaculate, neighborhood quiet. Great location on the island. We are looking forward to our next visit.

Great condo, great location!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent over three weeks at this comfortable condo. The pictures and property description were 100% accurate and the location was a short walk or a short drive to the beach. Be sure to dine at nearby Harry's restaurant and deli. The owner was great to work with and provided prompt responses to our questions and a speedy refund of our damage deposit.

My boyfriend and I stayed there and the place was amazing! Everything we needed was there from extra towels to blender and everything in between. There was a wonderful park that we could walk to and the pool was much larger than a postage stamp. Over all our trip was amazing and the house was perfect. If we come back to longboat we will be staying there again!!!

We loved this property

  • 5 of 5

The house is fully equipped. Clean and neat as a pin, delightful week. Enjoyed breakfast and drinks on the patio, watching the the water activity in the canal. The owners are so kind and friendly plus the use of their private pool a real bonus. The peace and quiet was very hard to leave......We will be back in 2016.

Great fishing location

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to stay at this townhouse once or twice a year for several years. It is a beautiful townhouse in a great location for fishing. It is located right in the middle of Longboat Key so beaches and restaurants are close by. St. Armand's Circle is a short drive away with world class shopping. The owner is great to work with and lives right across the street. Having a washer & dryer is certainly a plus. so, if you like fishing, tubing or boat riding, this is the place for you. The dock/seawall holds multiple boats and is good to fish from if you don't have a boat. We will certainly be back!
