What a beautiful home - We loved everything about this house!!! Rustic, private. Two favorite things: Open floor plan of family room and kitchen. We enjoyed just relaxing on the deck and listening to the ocean. My kids enjoyed this tremendously. We have found our favorite vacation house!
We had such a wonderfult time here!! The views were amazing, the beach was nice and quiet and it was very relazing. Would definately stay here again. Also loved seeing the dolphins (at least 12!) and a manatee. We also tried kayaking, paddleboarding for the first time. We will be back!
This is our 4th visit to your beautiful beach home. Thank you very much for opening your home and allowing us to stay and enjoy such amazing views of the Gulf of Mexico. We hope to be fortunate enough to one day return.
The perfect place to witness the Super Blue Moon eclipse... and alway as wonderful house to unwind and relax (even though we bring our work with us). Everything is excatly as we remember from our 1st visit - down to the blue heron guarding the blue beach chairs.
Our favorite beach house!
My sisters and cousins met for our annual get together and wouldn't think of going anywhere else but our favorite beach house! We have all rented the house many times before and feel like this is our home away from home. We spent many hours on the screened in porch talking, reading and enjoying the amazing view. If we could have our own house on Longboat Key - this would be it! Thank you for always accommodating us and making our time in Sarasota so special! This is the place to Enjoy Florida's Gulf!
We stayed here for a family Reunion. We have a family of 5 and hosted the entire family for meals with ease. The kitchen/Dining room set up is perfect for entertaining. It is right on the beach on the Gulf side. Beautiful private beach that we had to ourselves every day, with an occasional friendly person walking down the beach. I could have spent DAYS just lounging in the screened in porch. They have the most amazing and comfy chase lounges. Close to Sarasota (great restaurants and shops), deep sea fishing. Thanks Naomi for a great stay. I highly recommend it!

Memories Made at the Beach House Stay in Our Hearts Forever
Our family of four recently enjoyed the incredible Longboat Key Beach House. This was our second trip and each time we cannot believe how relaxed we feel. When you sit on the enclosed back porch, you feel like you are on a cruise ship because you are so close to the Gulf of Mexico and you have an incredible view of the water, birds and dolphins. The big white beach is so beautiful and not crowded at all. There is no development to the south of the house for over one mile.
The house is furnished perfectly with incredible beds, really high-speed wireless and three great HD televisions. Even though the home is historic, the interior of the home is completely up-to-date and impeccably clean. We enjoyed grilling out and using the paddleboards and kayaks.
We cannot wait to come back to our favorite beach house and have the most relaxing getaway week.

Wake up East TN. The absolute best vacation for the money during our peak summer vacation time is Sarasota, FL. In particular Long Boat Key. You see, it is their off season during July, Aug, & Sept. It's like being at you own private beach. The best way to figure it out is by letting Fl Vacation Connection help fix you up. My favorite by far was the Beach House. It is a great place. You can stay for less money and a great place as well at the Inn on the Beach condos. Very nice, but more people on the beach. The restaurants are great and the water makes you think you are in the Caribbean. Manatees can be seen swimming up the beach. You can fly Allegiant to St Pete, rent a car and be on the beach in about 40 minutes. All this for what you are going to pay for just a house at all of our regular beaches in SC. Call them for 2017!
