Apart from being in paradise with access to the beach and a great pool Melanie who is the agent for this home is close at hand if you need anything (which is unlikely) she lives close by which is a big plus. We also liked the feel of this house and felt right at home. Longboat Key is close to all the best Sarasota has to offer but this location is quiet and private. Thanks again to Graham and Melanie we were sad to leave.
