About Carlos

Growing up in the North Eastern part of the U.S., the winters were cold and long, so we decided to purchase a summer home in warm Florida. But not just anywhere in Florida; we fell in love with the Gulf Coast and especially Longboat Key 26 years prior while on vacation with our then, six month old daughter. Since then we made it a priority to some day buy a second home here. In 2006 and three kids later, our dream became a reality when we purchased this beautiful Mediterranean style home on the Gulf.

Carlos purchased this house in 2006

Why Carlos chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

We had been dreaming of buying a home in beautiful Longboat Key for years. We returned time and time again on vacation to this area. We enjoyed the beautiful clear, warm sandy beach, the friendly people and the slow pace Island living. In 2006 we immediately fell in love with this beautiful Mediterranean style home. It offered everything we were looking for, a wonderfully comfortable home with a great room with a fireplace to gather, relax and enjoy family time with our three kids. A dock for boating, a pool for evening swimming, hot tub for relaxation and a short walk accross the street to the most beautifully kept sandy beach on the Gulf. It also offered a short driving distance to beautiful St. Armands Circle where we enjoy going out to dinner and shopping. Since then, we have enjoyed bicycling, walking, swiming, jet skiing, boating and priceless moments spend with family.

What makes this house unique

You will feel home away from home here. Whether you are laying on the day bed outside on the terrace with your children looking at shooting stars in the evenings or just gathering as a family in the great room watching a movie or playing games, you will surely enjoy priceless family time and will create lasting memories for years to come as we have with our now grown three kids who still enjoy spending time here with us.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you very much for your comments and feedback, it is always appreciated. We truly apologize for the squeaky bed and toilet handle, I wish we would have been made aware during your stay so that it would have been corrected.

We supply all of our guest with about a day or two worth of start up supplies, garbage bags, soap, paper towels, sanitary items, etc. enough to help the guest get settle, but not enough to last your rental period.

Again, we apologize and welcome your feedback, our goal is 100% guest satisfaction as evident by our prior 20, 5 stars reviews.

Great home for Great Trip

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location for beach getaway. We traveled with 9 (3 kids) and there was plenty of room. Beach was very close (5 min walk) and best of all not crowded! Screened Pool at the home was a huge plus and we would definitely go back there again!!

Nice property

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this property and would probably return if visiting Long Boat Key. It met all our basic needs ( 10 people) and was comfortable and convenient. I am going to list some things that could have been better but did not take away from our enjoyment.

We never saw anyone associated with the property. Not that we needed to but was a little strange.

The bicycles did not work.

As mentioned in another review there is not enough cutlery. We bought a lot of plastic so there is more now!

With 10 people and just two showers it can get a little hectic, as long as you are willing to share it will work out.

There are a lot of light switches many of which do nothing, it would not take much to put blank plates over the old ones.

Enough of that, the pool is great except for the need of a hand railing down the steps (helps us old folks). Not far to the beach and it was never crowded, be advised there is no alcohol allowed on the beach?The mango tree was a great plus and supplied a little extra for breakfast.

Overall a good time was had by all, and who knows whats in a red solo cup!

A wonderful stay in a beautiful home on Longboat Key!

  • 5 of 5

WOW! A very lovely property! Clean and well appointed. Thoughtful touches abound. This home is well cared for. There were six of us on property, and every one of us were quite comfortable with the accommodations. A short walk to the beach, helped along by a wagon to transport our beach gear, was appreciated. The brand new pool was wonderful after a "hard" day of sunning and shelling! We would not hesitate to stay in this home on beautiful Longboat key on future vacations.
