We ended up staying at The Beach House for three weeks instead of two due to quarantining. What a wonderful place to be confined to! We felt at home immediately with the comfortable couches and layout of all rooms with fantastic views of the Gulf. Beds, bedding, kitchen, dishes, pots and pans all top notch. We had every single thing we needed. Suzette D. March 2020
The Beach House is on the sugar white sands of the Gulf of Mexico. Sitting on the screened porch watching heron, osprey and pelicans while enjoying cool breezes is heavenly. Dolphins came by regularly, once just 15 feet from the beach. There are awesome beach chairs, 2 sea kayaks, and beach toys for your use (the kayaks do need new paddles). Directly across the street is Bayfront park where you can play tennis, pickle ball, basketball, and shuffleboard for free. Kayaks are available for rent as well. There is a grocery store 5 minutes away and the best food we had all week was at Harry’s which is also 5 minutes away. This is perfect for one family or 2 couples looking for a truly wonderful Spring Break! George H. April 2019
This is the first year we've stayed at this lovely home. Thank you for sharing it with us. Our family loved the open floor plan, the screened patio, the natural setting ... really just all of it! We had an amazing week and look forward to coming again next year!
Thanks again & all the best, The Sierra's July 2018
The Beach House is a great place to spend your vacation, sand, sea and a house full of amenities but mostly tranquility. Location is perfect, the beach is right there and is mostly all to yourself. The house is a very typical beach house but it features all the commodities of today's world. Fantastically kept and maintained you will spend all the time there, as you do not need to do anuthing but relax and enjoy your time at the beac.

The beach house was absolutely amazing! The view was spectacular! There was an ocean view from every room in the house! The house was beautifully decorated and very cozy. We appreciated the owners providing so many amenities to make it the perfect family vacation! We will definitely return!

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!

Charming Beach House
The antithesis of generic Florida vacation rentals the Beach House is loaded with Old Florida charm. Resplendent views of the Gulf, whimsical yet comfortable furnishings, and a splendid screened porch. The Beach House is a delight!
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.
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.
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.
