About the owner: I grew up in Sarasota and always loved the beach and island life as well as all the cultural venues Sarasota is known for. I left Florida for university and professional reasons, however, always knowing that I would return to the area at a different phase in my life. I'm now married with 3 children, and Longboat Key provides exactly what we seek which is the serenity and tranquility of a beach life yet conveniently located to all the outdoor activities which we seek for as well as being a hop away to all that Sarasota has to offer. We hope to provide a place that would embrace love, tranquility, contentment, and good will to those who visit our home.
Why this property? I felt very fortunate to have found this lovely property in July 2012 as a vacation house to share with my husband, 3 children, and our family pet. We're looking to retire in the area, and the house was perfect for our needs. The private beach access is now rare in Longboat Key. The house is on a quiet street and away from the noise, and its close proximity to Anna Marie island and Sarasota is a main reason why we chose this particular home.
Private beach access to one of the most beautiful beach and magnificent sunsets; Pet and family family; Quiet street yet within walking distance to stores/restaurants/shops; Close proximity to Sarasota and Anna Marie Island; Open floor plan; Dock for boats; Private pool; Regular pool/landscape/pest control services; Fully equip with modern conveniences for a home away from home; Everything is provided including all beach equipment/toys/cart/towels/chairs/umbrella/tent, board games, washer/dryer/vacumn cleaner, 3 bikes, 2 scooters, books, DVDs, and much much more.

Great canal home that is well stocked and as a bonus is pet friendly
We thoroughly enjoyed or stay. It is in a great location on a quiet street with a very short stroll to the beach. The house is clean, comfortable, and well stocked with all the essential items you need for a relaxing vacation. The host is wonderful to work with. Attentive and quick to respond to any questions. This property met and in many areas exceeded our expectations.

Great family vacation
We had a wonderful vacation! The house was super clean when we arrived. There were bikes to ride, beach chairs & umbrellas and beach towels. All the comforts of home were provided. The kids loved fishing in the canal and swimming in the pool. We brought our own kayaks. The only problem we had was getting on the kayaks. The ladder wasn't long enough so it was tricky getting in the kayak. Once in, however, paddling out to the bay was beautiful. I highly recommend Alise's home. We hope to return next year! Thank you.
