Description of the Longboat Key vacation home rental
This casual beach home is just the right place to enjoy a laid-back, toes-in-the-sand vacation! Nestled on the shores of the Gulf of Mexico at the north end of Longboat Key, it's the perfect spot for relaxing days on the beach, followed by fabulous sunsets and star-kissed nights. Built in the heyday of the mid-20th century fascination with octagonal structures, this unusual shaped home makes for lovely woodwork, as seen in both the ceilings and the floors. Expansive living areas allow for lots of room to spread out, while 3 comfortable bedrooms line the perimeter of the home. A sunny wrap-around deck with sliding glass doors makes it easy to enjoy the fresh air. Downstairs you'll find a big game room, complete with a pool table, a ping pong table and dart board ... the perfect place for family fun! A gas grill is close at hand - spend the day on the beach, then grill your lunch or dinner without having to change out of your bathing suit! Beach Escape is truly that - a beach escape!

Area Information
Known for tasteful luxury and manicured surroundings, Longboat Key is rich in gorgeous beaches, wildlife and upscale amenities. High-end boutiques and five-star restaurants make it an ideal destination for vacationers who like their beaches on the swankier side. Ignored by spring breakers and devoid of the garish attractions that characterize many Florida beach towns, Longboat Key is one of quietest barrier islands on the Gulf Coast—and all the more beloved for it.

Its history includes tales of explorers and Native Americans, pirates and pioneers. There are grand mansions and even grander yachts, plus some of the world’s most beautiful sunsets lining the tranquil Gulf of Mexico.

Scores of retirees, young families and romantic couples visit each year to take advantage of the superb angling, shelling, biking, shopping, dining and the luxury homes that its 12-mile stretch of shoreline. Just minutes away from the cultural attractions of Sarasota and world-famous St. Armand’s Circle, Longboat Key is the ideal base from which to explore the area.

Loved It!!

October 16, 2014

We spent a week at this property & absolutely loved it. Even our kids (ages 21 & 25) were saying best time ever. We had planned to do a couple day trips to the Orlando area and only ended up leaving the area once (to Universal) because no one wanted to waste a day somewhere else! The beach was awesome for shelling. The dolphins made a swim by everyday. The fishing was awesome. My husband had no problem setting an alarm for 6 a.m. so he could start his fishing days early. As for me, the pool was a small slice of heaven. We didn't use the pool table (needed work), or the table tennis (needed paddles), or the bikes (only 1 worked) but with a pool & your own beach who wanted to be inside...No One LOL!! The house itself is older but with an unique character & charm that fits perfectly with a beach escape. The kitchen was well stocked with all the things we needed. Cooked the fish we caught & life was good! If you want a true private beach experience this is the place! :)
