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 Florida South Central Gulf Coast

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.

Very nice house - Convenient to everything

  • 5 of 5

If your a boater or a beach person - both are perfect for this house. The house was decorated nice and well maintained. You could not ask for a better property owner too. We will be back for another vacation.

Good stay not so far from the beach

  • 5 of 5

Extremely clean house, and perfect for 4 people, as described on the website.

Our stay started on the 14th of January for one month and we enjoyed it. Whenever the weather was nice, and this was almost always the case, we had breakfast and lunch on the deck, looking at the fish jumping out of the canal. By the way, they are surprisingly active during the night and although we sleep with open window the noise they make did not disturb our sleep at all. It was only special and unusual.

The pool is not heated but the beach is close to the house and despite the limited number of public accesses on the entire island, there is one in walking distance (10 minutes). Sunsets are great and should not be missed.

There are bike lanes crossing the island from south to north and we made heavy use of them to discover the surroundings.

Last but not least, Stephanie and Mike were the perfect hosts, listening to and answering all our questions.

Wonderful experience on Longboat Key

  • 5 of 5

The house was spacious, very comfortable and clean. Stephanie provided everything that a family would need. The neighborhood was quiet and the people were friendly. We were close to the beaches and restaurants. I really enjoyed my morning coffee outside and relaxing on the deck in the evenings. The canal was a plus. Stephanie made check-in easy and was quickly available when we had questions. We enjoyed everything about the place and would love to return.

A home away from home! Best of Both worlds! Had my cake and ate it too!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were looking for a home on Floridas west coast to bring our boat to. We currently live in Pennsylvania on the Delaware river and are active outdoors. We have stayed in siesta key in the past but wanted to explore more than just the beach. We searched for hours on the internet for something that allowed quick access to the bay and Gulf of Mexico up and down floridas west coast. We stumbled upon home away.com and although hesitant to book a private home online (never did), we did it. The owners could have not been more helpful and reassuring with answering all my questions and responding almost immediately from day 1 of booking. The home itself was more than I expected. The home was immaculate. I'm the person that cleans the hotel or place of stay before I leave it. It was not only "you can eat off the floor" clean but perfectly set up as a home away from home place of stay. The home is very spacious, offering 2 large bedrooms with closets. The masters bathroom is in the bedroom and the 2nd bedrooms bathroom is directly across the hall from it. But wait, there's more! There's a 3rd bonus bedroom/half of home or whatever you would like to call it has a 1/2 bathroom, a super large closet and has a trundle day bed allowing for 2 more guests. This area does have a door to make it into a private bedroom and also has its own access to the screened in pool area. Oh yeah! I forgot about the front and back decks! There is a screened in pool with deck at the back of the home (people who live on the water consider the street side of the home as the back of the house), and a large front deck with aboat dock. The living room and kitchen has an open concept floor plan and very spacious. What I loved most about the interior, was that even though it was not built yesterday, it was maintained and remodeled impeccably. Again, I can't say enough how clean it was. Everything that the rental description states about providing, such as hand soap/laundry detergent/toilet paper/dishwasher detergent etc, there was plenty of. Now for the water, and all the exploration that can be done. The bay is 500 yards down the canal and the ocean 5-7 min away by boat. The water has multiple shades of blue and is simply beautiful. There's multiple sand bars to explore and places to go. BRING YOUR BOAT and enjoy! DO NOT hesitate to book with this owner. Oh and the beach is a 3 block away of you want to give your "sea-legs" a break! Waterfront dining to pull up to
