Description of the Longboat Key vacation home rental
Lovely completely new fully equipped 3 bedroom beach cottage beautifully decorated with lush landscaping and outdoor lanai for dining and relaxing. Master bedroom, 2 other bedrooms, and 2 full baths plus lanai dining area.

Quiet upscale residential neighborhood. Two minute walk to a quiet clean sandy Gulf shore beach. Excellent fishing off beach and nearby bay and wonderful underwater visibility for diving and snorkeling-- the water looks like the Caribbean. Great kayak water in bay or gulf with rentals 5 minutes out of cottage. Five minute walk to Cocina Beach on Anna Maria Island. This is the only US beach to be rated in the top 20 beaches world wide. Five minutes to groceries and pizza.
Ten minutes to 4 star restaurants.
This is our retirement home. We have a large family and use this calendar for them, but also for guests. We emphasize peace and quiet.
Area Information
Just a drive to St. Armand's circle, the Mote Aquarium and Sarasota.

We are located on the northwest corner of Longboat Key, very near the drawbridge connecting to Anna Maria Island.
Excellent paved walking and biking paths everywhere, as well as miles of beach to walk.

Longboat Key has terrific beaches with gentle slopes in the water, great diving, and perfect sand. Our primary beach is a 2 minute walk, and and our location on the west side places us away from the traffic noise that impacts 80% of properties-even properties a block away from our home. Unlike most property on Long Boat Key or the west coast of Florida we have true peace and quiet. Yet an 8 minute drive puts us into good night life, and a 15 minute drive puts us at St Armand's circle with terrific shopping and food. World famous Mote aquarium and Selby gardens are 20 minutes away. Liquor and food are a 3 minute drive as are several great restaurants.

Local property manager at your service. Large garage great for secure storage.

Great Place to Stay!

June 10, 2014

This was a great vacation home rental at a great price. The home was very clean and very roomy. We have four children and they all enjoyed it very much! The pool has a toddler gate which is wonderful option as we have a 2 yr old. I would highly recommend this property. It is about 15 minute drive to a public beach, but worth the drive to stay in this quiet, peaceful neighborhood, away from the beach noise and traffic. We will definitely be looking at this house as an option if we return to the area next year!

Quite beach cottage

July 25, 2011

The house is very comfortable and the lanai out back is the spot to relax be it for morning coffee or evening libations. The owners are very friendly and helpful people and full of local recommendations. They have lots of items you will need - for example they allowed us to us their beach chairs, they had bicycles, and the house had some supplies to get us started such as papertowel, trash bags and toilet paper. We watched two wonderful sunsets on the beach which is just a quick five minute walk from the house. The beach at the end of the road is one of the nicest beaches in the area. A nice quiet place to unwind is what you will find at this cottage.
