Photos and Description of the Longboat Key vacation bungalow rental

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Enjoy staying at this one of kind beach bungalow for your special occasions or just a family fun retreat. Built in 1930, historical florida charm, this adorable quaint home with lots of character has much to offer starting with the pristine water of the Sarasota bay just steps from the front door. Enjoy a morning coffee while looking out over the bay. Easy access to the quaint community beach and boat launch are great for a quick dip or a going on a kayak adventure. It is public boat ramp, so it can be busy at times, however there is limited parking and people typically drop their boat in the water and go, we have found it fun to watch the people. We are also across the street from Mar Vista restaurant, extremely convenient for dinner, but has restaurant traffic. The noise ordinances on Longboat Key prohibits live music etc, so it stays fairly quiet. We continue to upgrade the property, but it does have it's quirks due to his age, for example the switch in the bedroom closet turns on your living room lights.

A shopping plaza, Avenue of the Flowers, is just down the road, offering a wine and liquor store, breakfast restaurant, pizza restaurant, clothing and sundries store. High quality Municipal Tennis Courts are nearby and a four-foot wide sidewalk extends for most of Longboat Key with seven to eight miles for jogging, rollerblading, walking, and biking, and walking your dog. One can also walk Longboat beach for the same distance, and shelling is a favorite activity.

There are also bike lanes on both sides of Gulf of Mexico Drive for extreme bike riders. Longboat Key is a very upscale barrier island which is connected by bridges to Anna Maria Key to the North and St. Armand's Key and Sarasota to the South. Sarasota Airport is an easy 15-20 minute drive and Tampa International Airport is an hour's drive North.

Less than 2 miles from the famous and lovely St. Armands Circle. Walk or take the Trolley or park in the many spaces provided.
