Enjoy a great vacation home on the north end of Longboat Key near Longboat Pass. This home is set on a lovely bayou and across from the best beach on the island. This wonderfully decorated three-story home features updated furniture and tropical decor throughout with two garages and a screened in pool on the first level.
Upstairs, on the main living level, you will enjoy an open floor plan with a bright kitchen and breakfast bar for six plus a dining area and living room. Both guest bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths are located on this floor as well.
Access the master bedroom suite (third level) via a spiral staircase or elevator and there you will find a spacious master bedroom with it's own bath including garden tub, walk in shower and two lavatories. Walk outside to a private sunning deck under a pergola.
Enjoy a short stroll to the white sandy beach or swim in your own private pool in the screened in lanai area. The colorful sunsets off of your balcony or at the beach are absolutely breathtaking! You will find an abundance of wildlife throughout the area including birds, dolphins and manatees.
Longboat Key is on the West Coast of Florida, near Sarasota and one hour south of Tampa. Sought-after Longboat Key has some of the most unspoiled beaches in the area. Our access is only a short walk away (5 minutes) from our home where you have the feeling that you have your own private beach.
Longboat Key boasts some of the wealthiest residents, and finest restaurants in the Sarasota area. From this home, it's a matter of minutes to St. Armand's Circle, a shopping paradise. Longboat Key is a ten-mile long barrier island attached at each end by a bridge to the mainland. If you would like to go to theme parks - we are one hour from Busch Gardens of Tampa Bay or two and a half hours from Disney and Universal Studios. Galleries, museums, and live theater are within a 25 minute drive.

Wonderful Vacation. Owner had beach chairs, boogie boards, towels, everything you would need for a comfortable visit to the beach. House was great and accommodated our family beautifully. Perfect location on Long Boat Key! Thank you
Beautiful and relaxing
We had a wonderful stay at the Beach House. The home was well-appointed as well as comfortable. The kitchen had every appliance one could need. The pool was an added plus. With the beautiful large beach a comfortable couple blocks away, we spent many hours walking, collecting shells, and enjoying very few other people compared to other local beaches. Also the elevator was very handy with moving in the suitcases. We also enjoyed the many restaurants on Longboat Key as well as Anna Marie Island just over the bridge. Thanks Ellen and Kevin for sharing your home and allowing our dog to be part of our vacation.
A truly fantastic vacation. House was clean, roomy and well stocked. (elevator was very cool).Great indoor pool with grill. Close to some great restaurants and shops. A short ride (or even walk) to numerous places to boat, parasail, jet ski, etc. We especially enjoyed the beautiful sunsets on the pristine beach. Saw a few dolphins too! Kevin you were very accommodating and made planning this a breeze. We'll be back.
Better than expected
Our best vacations ever. Beautiful house, well stocked kitchen, great pool and huge master bedroom. Secluded location with short access to the best beach in the area. We loved Longboat Key and the neighboring islands. We will definitely come back. Thank you Pam for being so accommodating with us!
Had an amazing week here! Beautiful beach home, great kitchen and family room! The master is tremendous and private, with large bathroom and great balconies. Grill and swim while awaiting the magnificient sunset on nearby Whitney beach! Transportation was a walking block away and convenient for going up and down the key, ie. down to St Armands circle. Many great restuarants nearby, favorites include the Mar Vista patio for dinner, and Euphemia Haye for coffee/desert upstairs. Enjoy!!
pulling up to the beach styled pink house was just the beginning of our fabulous vacation. this house was more wonderful than we had expected. the house is so warm and welcoming with all the beach like touches. extremely clean and updated, very spacious! we loved grilling, while swimming in this sparkly in ground pool, a vacation must! the beach was just a short and fun bike ride away, we were often greeted by wild peacocks and their peachicks, very cute! along w bikes, the owners had floats and umbrellas available for the beach. we also enjoyed the short walk to the bus and trolley, which took us to the mote aquarium and many times to shopping and restuarants, .75 cents to ride. the kitchen was huge and had everything that i needed for all meals. this house is by far our most favorite vacation rental, we will be returning in oct. for some more amazing sunsets and swimming with mamatee!
