Property Details

Updated: May 19, 2015
House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-7)

This relaxing Longboat Key 3 bedroom home has everything you could want for your vacation away from home! Villa Lyons is an open airy 3 bedroom /2 bath canal front home. Bring your boat and tie up right on your back yard dock. Walk down the street to the beautiful beach or jump on a boat and head straight out to the Intra-coastal the cut to the gulf is only minutes away.

Relax by the heated pool on the screened in lanai. Enjoy outdoor living at its best as you watch the peaceful water and birds out back on the serene canal while sipping a cool drink and grilling your steaks on the charcoal BBQ. You may even encounter a dolphin or manatee swimming by. Feel free to cast off the dock to see what you will catch or maybe you'd like to rent a boat nearby and check out the sites.

The house is easy one level living. There is a spacious living room with a flat screen tv and generous view of the lanai and pool. Plus the third bedroom is arranged to double as a second family room where kids can play games or adults can setup their computer workstation.

The dining room accommodates large family gatherings, seating up to 10. And for families with dueling computers it makes an excellant work area.

Take a short stroll up the peaceful streets of Sleepy Lagoon to the uncrowded white sandy beach. The sunsets at the beach are absolutely breathtaking! There is even an outdoor shower with hot and cold water, perfect for enjoying the balmy breeze on your skin after a day at the beach!

The master bedroom features a king-size bed, bedroom number two has a queen and in the third bedroom/den area there are two twin beds along with a desk for your computer.

This home has high speed wireless internet access so you will be able to work efficiently or just keep in touch with family while you are away. The computer setup in the den will keep all your paperwork out of site; or you can sit by the pool using the wireless internet access.

Signup for a nature tour and relax in the beauty of North Longboat's coastal flora and fauna.

The house is situated on a quiet dead-end street with minimal traffic. There are no homes across from you - just quiet mangroves along the bay. The grassy backyard is a terrific place for kids to play.

Go to our website to see more pictures of the house. The link can be found further down on the VRBO page, or email us and we will send you photos.

Longboat Key is on the West Coast of Florida, near Sarasota and one hour south of Tampa. Sought-after Longboat Key has some of the most unspoiled beaches in the area. Our access is only three blocks away from our home where you have the feeling that you have your own private beach. Longboat boasts some of the wealthiest residents, and finest restaurants in the Sarasota area.

Perhaps you would rather go for a round of golf or a game of tennis nearby. From this home, it is a matter of minutes to golf courses, tennis courts or shopping! Saint Armand's Circle, a shopping paradise is about 15 minutes away. Longboat Key is a ten-mile long barrier island attached at each end by a bridge to the mainland. If you would like to go to theme parks - we are one hour from Busch Gardens of Tampa Bay or two-and-one-half hours from Disney and Universal Studios. Galleries, museums, and live theatre are within a 25-minute drive.

About the Owner

We hope you will enjoy Longboat Key as much as we do. This is a special place that we would love to share with you.

We do a lot of boating and beaching while we are here. The small islands and sandbars provide a great playground for little and big kids. And the dolphins make you smile.

We love to walk down to the beach with a glass of wine and watch the beautiful sunsets. It is the perfect end to another lovely day in paradise.

As an added bonus, we have relatives in the area and always enjoy getting together with family for special occasion or an afternoon of sailing.

Home away from home

What a wonderful time we had staying in this lovely home. Upon arriving we couldn't wait to enjoy the beautiful pool and then fish on the dock. Mornings we went to the beach where there were only a handful of people there, sometimes none, so we felt like it was all ours!! Sunsets were gorgeous so we decided have family pictures taken to have memories to last a lifetime. Walking around St. Armand's Square with all the shopping and dining was so much fun. We would like to thank the owners for giving us this opportunity for staying in their comforatable home, we will certainly be back again in the future.

Nice and cozy

My husband, our furry friend and I had a great time in Longboat key and enjoyed the house very much. It's beautiful and well-maintained. Convenient location near the beach, the screened pool is amazing, nice garden and dock, well-stocked kitchen, very clean and very comfy beds. We would recommend this property to anyone.
Than you for sharing your home and thank you for allowing pets, we wouldn't have come without our dog, she's part of our family.

summer get away

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from 9 days staying at this house with our 2 kids and our dog.
We had the best family vacation. We live in Florida and our kids have never gone fishing.
We fished off the dock every day. We caught lots of fish. Was so much fun. Went swimming in the pool every day.
We rented bikes for the week. Biked to several locations for breakfast and lunch.
Grilled out at night and played board games on the porch.
Great location! Great house. We felt right at home. Very comfortable.
The beaches are beautiful. Just had an amazing time.
Thanks for the memories and sharing your home with us.
We will be back.

We have rented this house for the past three years and are doing so again this year. The house is comfortable and is always neat, clean and well equipped when we arrive. The pictures don't do justice to the pool. Although we are "beach people" we have used the pool far more than we expected. The beach is an easy walk away.

The rooms are nicely sized. There is a large walk in closet in the master bedroom and a combination den, third bedroom that works well for either, or both uses. The kitchen has all the appliances needed if you like to cook. This is one of the few nice homes that permits a dog.

We love the block and the neighborhood which is quiet friendly and well located. The front plantings are outstanding. We would recommend this house without hesitation.

The house is professionally managed and minor problems have been dealt with immediately.

Owner's Response: It has been a pleasure having renters that take care of the home as if they own it and we hope you return year after year.

North longboat canal florida ranch house

  • 5 of 5
Our family Stayed in the house this summer. Best time to be on the island in my opinion because there is no one on the beach and the water is warm crystal clear teaming with life. Kids jumped off the dock and swam in the canal then straight to the outside shower and pool. We had a great routine and enjoyed every minute of the staycation.

Owner's Response: We are so happy you enjoyed your stay. The setting seems to be ideal for most families and couples because you can spend time at the beach (it is simply a 5-7 minute walk to the beach- about 3-4 blocks) or enjoy the privacy of your own pool out back. We hope you will return next year!


From the Owner

We love the short walk to the beach and direct access to the InterCoastal Waterway. We have friends on one of the islands in Sarasota Bay and love to boat over to visit them.

From the Owner

There are so many things to do here -- there is something for everyone. Terrific golf and tennis. For the water lovers you can power boat, paddle board, kayak, sail, and jet ski. And then there is the beach -- nature's playground. The beaches are wide, the water is clear, and the surf is calm. If you prefer to play in your own backyard you can swim in our pool or hang out on the dock and watch the fish and birds at play. And when that urge to shop hits, your car will find it's way to the fabulous St Armands Circle. A short drive into Sarasota opens up the arts - you can enjoy theatre, gardens, museums and so much more. The restaurants are great. From the seafood salad at Starfish to the chef's special at Euphemia Haye - you can't go wrong. There is something for everyone on Longboat Key.
