About the property

Villa Style Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This 2300 square foot villa is located in an exclusive gated community on the red golf course of the Longboat Key Club, and enjoys private beach access at the nearby Bay Isles Beach Club. With an open floor plan and skylights, the home is bright and airy, boasting an interior atrium, vaulted ceilings, and sliding glass doors to a large and private lanai. The sunny lanai encloses an optionally heated private pool and hot tub, sun bathing deck, BBQ grill and eating area.

The property includes three bedrooms (one each king, queen and twin set), a large living room with office nook, a separate dining room, a TV/breakfast room combination, laundry room, kitchen, and a one car garage. Furnishings are predominately high quality wicker and leather pieces, and the property is filled with original art.

Our home is less than three blocks to the Moorings, Longboat Key's deep water marina, and five to six blocks to the island's main retail service center, where grocery, drugstore, post office, fitness center and casual dining options are found. Here also is the incredibly active and well-managed Longboat Key Tennis Center, hosting 10 clay courts and three full time professional tennis instructors.

Just a few miles south is St. Armands Circle, well known for it's array of ice cream parlors and coffee houses, upscale dining, boutique shopping, and people watching opportunities. St. Armands is also a regular venue for free evening concerts and entertainment. Less than ten minutes across the John Ringling Bridge, lies Sarasota's booming downtown, with its eclectic mix of art galleries, restaurants, shopping, performing arts, and tourist attractions.

For the discriminating traveler, our Bay Isles home offers private, first class accommodations, and easy access to a wide variety of sporting and cultural activities along the turquoise waters of the the Gulf of Mexico.

My husband and I have enjoyed the last two winter seasons (2014 & 2015) at this wonderful property. The owner is such a pleasure to work with and does make you feel very at home. The house if full of delightful artwork...very unusual for a rental...and we were always seeing something new that we hadn't noticed before. The kitchen is up to date and fully equipped including the owners' pantry which they generously share. The bathrooms are large and lovely. When family visited, they spent a good deal of time in the pool. It was so nice to step out the back door and go for a swim and there is plenty of seating around the lanai. There is also a private beach club only 5 min. by car or 10 min. on a bike with restrooms and showers, picnic tables, grills, etc. We loved taking a glass of wine to the beach to watch the incredible sunsets over the gulf. Publix and CVS are "right around the corner". The whole area has lots of good restaurants to choose from and it is fun shopping on St. Armand's Circle as well as downtown Sarasota which has a marvelous performing arts center, opera house and live theater. Longboat Key is beautiful and this property is in a perfect location to enjoy all the area has to offer(golf, tennis, boating, culture) or to simply relax and read a good book. We highly recommend it and certainly hope to return.

My husband and I enjoyed an outstanding month at this charming property. We loved the house and felt right at home, as the owners left many of their own amenities available so that we could move in as if it were our own; we appreciated their trust! It was great not to have to shop right away, and so we replaced what we used where we thought it would be useful to the them or their next renters. Everything was very clean and well-maintained, the pool and lanai were wonderful, the living spaces were large, the kitchen was great. And, we LOVED the eclectic art collection which was whimsical and cheerful. The bedrooms were also spacious and the beds very comfortable. The bathrooms were uncluttered, clean, and thoughtfully decorated with up-to-date fixtures and beautiful granite. It was also easy to communicate with the owners and they were very attentive to details. We loved entertaining visitors there, at 4 different times having a couple of guests for a couple of nights. Everyone who came thought the house was great and appreciated the owners' personal touch. There is plenty to do in the area - we enjoyed tennis; golf; bicycling; shopping; the many beautiful beaches; great restaurants in Longboat, St Armands Circle, AnnaMaria Island, and Sarasota; the Ringling Museums; the Selby Botannical Gardens; and exploring nearby islands both by boat and car. We highly recommend this and would happily rent it again

Sun & Fun @ Harbor Oaks

We enjoyed the beauty of Longboat Key. Condo was at the perfect location. Able to walk to breakfast or take in the view of the marina & sunsets at night.The property met all of our expectations. Owners were more than helpful with any concerns.

Wonderful ...

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful home - behind two gates - in a quiet neighborhood - close to everything (beach, restaurants, golf, shops, marina and more). Everything as described - and even better. Very private, great pool, owner very good to work with, very comfortable. Everything about this home was first class and, for our extended stay, it was indeed "perfect." We hate to recommend it - because we want to rent it again .. and again! Our experience was Winter 2011 - and could not have been better.

Convenient, functional, and large condo located in a beautiful area on Longboat Key

  • 5 of 5

This unit has a great location and the layout of the condo is very functional. It is larger enough to handle six people with its 3 bedrooms (king, double, and 2 twin beds) and 2.5 baths. The lanai is private and the spa can be quickly heated at a low cost for ocassional use. It is well equipped and the owner was most helpful assuring that everything was functioning properly. The owner also helped with useful local contact information. There is an abundance of interesting artwork in the home, but it is displayed in a manor that allows use of the home without great fear of damaging the contents. The condo is very adequately maintained.

You'll love this house.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented the house for the month of March and loved it. We had guests two of the four weeks and they felt the same way. The pool and spa are well maintained (weekly cleaning) and the location of the house is very convenient for shopping, restraurants and attractions. The owners are easy to work with and very attentive, every detail is spelled out for you.

Longboat Key - Gulf of Mexico
Car: recommended

Steeped in a rich circus history, Sarasota offers a year round abundance of visual and performing arts, and a plethora of waterfront options for dining and play. The city is flanked on the west by a series of barrier islands, along the Gulf of Mexico. One of the largest, and certainly the most serene of these islands is Longboat Key. With wide and generally uncrowded beaches, the island uniquely offers daily necessities within walking distance, and sits just minutes North of the bustling shopping and dining possibilities in St. Armands Circle, and in downtown Sarasota.
