About Stephanie Fischer

Originally from Stillwater, Minnesota. Married with two teenage boys. We moved to Florida about ten years ago for the blue skies, sunshine and the beautiful waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

Stephanie Fischer purchased this house in 2011

Why Stephanie Fischer chose Longboat Key

Vacationed in Sarasota for 20 years before finally making the leap and moving down in 2004. Best decision we ever made. Longboat Key is truly the best location in Southwest Florida.

What makes this house unique

You will love the indoor outdoor living. Tropical canal is so close, you can enjoy a stone crab feast on the back deck and throw the shells in the water.

Relaxing home in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

When we rented this house, we had not bought a home in nearby Bradenton. We did find a house so what was supposed to be a relaxing time was filled with home inspections, walk-throughs, unpacking and all the little details that need to be completed before you can move into a new home. It was wonderful to be able to come back to this home after working all day to get the new place ready. We got to stare longingly at our boat, easily parked next to the house and located very near the local boat ramp. We relaxed at night on comfortable furniture before falling into the very comfortable bed with soft sheets. While we took advantage of many of the restaurants located within easy driving distance (Lazy Lobster and Bridge Tender Inn are two of our favorites) we could have used the very well equipped kitchen at the house. This was the best equipped kitchen of all the homes we have stayed at. The closets were also some of the largest we have had. There is a beautiful deck and a fire pit in the back of the house along the canal. We enjoyed sitting out there, reading the newspaper or just watching the water. The only drawback was the water pressure in the showers. This is not the first time we have encountered this on Longboat Key so it must be either the city water system or the age of the homes. Any questions we had were promptly answered by Stephanie, the owner of this great place. All in all, this is a wonderful place to stay and if we weren't lucky enough to now be living so close by, we would definitely stay here again

Beautiful house on the canal, minutes from the beach.

  • 5 of 5

This was definitely one of the nicest, cleanest places we have stayed in. The house has every amenity you could imagine. It is located in a great spot and only minutes from the beach. We loved it and will definitely be back. The only thing I did not get to do was enjoy the lovely pool as the water was a bit chilly for me. If you are considering a place to stay in Longboat Key, this is definitely it. You will not be disappointed and Stephanie was awesome.

Very nice, very clean, great location on north end of island

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to longboat key twice a year for about 12 years. This was defiantly one of the cleanest homes we have ever stayed at, house was very well kept. Nice washer and dryer, good firm mattress in master, nice kitchen, all appliances very nice. Property well kept and close to some of the restaurants we always frequent (Bayou Tavern and Grill, Lazy Lobster, Euphemia Haye, Dry Dock). Good communication with owners, simply can't go wrong with this vacation rental

Wonderful getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cute house. It was nice to relax in the pool, fish off the dock, and take a short stroll to the beach while being away from the crowds. And the owner was just a phone call or text away for any questions. Such a wonderful, relaxing time.

  • 5 of 5

The House was in the perfection location! The owner was such a pleasure to speak with and was so helpful throughout our stay. The House was clean, and had everything you could need! The pool was such a great thing to come home to after a day on the beach! My kids loved it and can’t wait to come back! Would definitely stay here again!

Great North Location, Lots of Amenities: Pool, Outdoor Shower, Dock, Wonderful People

  • 5 of 5

Been coming to LBK for several years, but this is the first time we rented a house. We choose this for its many amenities, location and because they allow pets with permission. We loved that it had a clean working pool, which we used daily after spending time on the beach. We used the outdoor shower daily also, not only for rinsing after the beach but for actual showering, we loved it so much we are putting one in at home! We loved the canal access, boat dock and quick access to Jewfish Island, Longboat Pass and nearby restaurants available by boat. Loved the roomy and comfy living room, kitchen has ample counter space, and split floor plan if you use it that way. Master and spare are next to each other, each with its own bathroom (I found bed to be too firm for me) But there is another study/bedroom on the other side of the living room that has a twin trundle (soft) and half bath where my son stayed. He loved the 100 Mbps speeds! New Washer and Dryer is so convenient, you won't need to pack so many clothes, owners even provide laundry soap. Loved the front and back porches and fire pit too. There's even a putting green if you're a golfer. The street is quiet with very nice residents and we met so many wonderful people this trip, including the owners. The owners, do keep their own boat on a lift on property and may occasionally take it out, if that's an issue for you let them know, but we had no problem with it and feel like we made many new friends, and they were careful to stay out of our way. Great dog park on N. Anna Maria by the City Buildings and a new dog park complete with obstacles is about to open on South LBK. There are NO dogs on the beaches here (500. fine) but we took ours to Jewfish almost daily, the dog park, Joan Durante park (a must) and they are welcome on the causeway. You must pick up after pets. Bring your bikes, we biked everywhere, some restaurants, thrift store, Durante park, and to the LBK pass bridge (you can see bats at dusk) and beaches. There are three public beach access' within blocks of the house, super close and convenient (one hidden, try and find it!). The beaches here are very private. Note: Must try Tide Tables, the grouper fish tacos are the best I've ever had! Longbeach Cafe for breakfast on LBK and also try Ginny and Janie's on Anna Maria for breakfast, you will dream about the cream brûlée french toast and cinnamon rolls! Lots of great restaurants on Anna Maria. A Must Stay!
