vacation rental description

This mid-century modern beach house features three bedrooms and three baths
and was completely renovated in 2006 and 2007. The home was built for a
single schoolteacher in 1959 and occupied by her until 2005. She lovingly
planted and nurtured many trees and plants that survive to this day giving it
a tropical feel and privacy. We have also added a succulent and cactus
The architect’s plan included three completely new baths, custom fixtures, a
new euro style stainless steel kitchen, new a/c, plumbing, patio and lanai
with an out door shower.
In keeping with the era of the home, many vintage mid-century modern
materials and accessories were utilized. One highlight is the original
terrazzo floor, which was polished and restored.
The furnishings include mid-century modern classics from Herman Miller,
Howard Miller, Paul McCobb, Eames, Noguchi, Heyward Wakefield and Danish
Modern. The art collection encompasses pieces by Indiana, Trova, Bill,
originals by current artists, as well as found art objects. Mid-century
light fixtures and fans were refurbished and used in keeping with the homes
vintage as were recycled vintage glass block for accent walls. We even
retained a couple of jelosied windows and period aluminum clad doors that
were built with the home.
Overall, the renovation is an unfussy blend of tasteful mid-century modern
and 21st century, using quality materials such as marble, slate, limestone,
stainless steel, cedar and fiberglass sheet.
The kitchen, living room, dining room, sunroom and patio flow together
providing a relaxed indoor/outdoor great room. A new limestone patio
provides a nice spot for alfresco dining under the banyan tree.
The home is approximately 125 yards from a deeded private beach that is
approximately 5 miles long. The powdered sand is pristine, white coral and
is a lovely stretch to stroll or watch tropical sunsets.
The location at the north end of the island consists of single-family homes
and two story condos. The result is low people density on the beach and
road. Quite often you can walk the beach for 1-2 hours and only pass a few
people. As one Florida native said, “this is old Florida.” Beer Can Island,
at the north end of Longboat Key, is a nice place to walk, and see dolphins,
ospreys, heron and an occasional manatee.
Within two miles are markets, restaurants, post office, banks and the towns
Durante Park. You can stay on the island with a bicycle.

Longboat Key is within a few miles of Sarasota but feels like another
country. Commercial development has been controlled through careful
planning, so signage, strip malls and roadside attractions have been
restricted. Year round population is 8,000 and peaks at 22,000.
The island’s proximity to Sarasota provides cultural attractions, shopping
and dining. If required, Sarasota also has the highly rated Sarasota General
Longboat Key has a large wide concrete walk way for most of its 12-mile
length for walking, jogging, roller blading or slow bike riding. Bike lanes
on Gulf of Mexico Drive connect to keys north and south to accommodate more
ambitious cycling.

traveler reviews for this longboat key house rental

excellent place for a get away

Review submitted: April 4, 2013   Date of arrival: March 23, 2013

This house was perfect for our spring break week. The kitchen and grill were perfect for hosting no fuss cooking for our dinner guests who stayed down the key at a hotel/condo complex. The lack of steps and walk in showers were great for my dad who has knee problems. The beds were so comfortable and covered with down comforters which was perfect for the unseasonably cool nights we had. We don't mind walking to the beach when we can have such a comfortable, quiet place in which to sleep and relax in.
