The house faces west for spectacular sunsets. You are surrounded by pristine boating and swimming water the best gulf and bay fishing on the west coast of Florida. You will have use of 2 stand up paddle boards, 2 double person kayaks, 2 children's kayaks and a canoe. We also have a variety of fishing poles but for serious fisherman you should bring your own salt water fly or cast rods.Wildlife. During a typical stay you will see dolphins playing off the beach, manatees often, tarpon, sea turtles and a large array of gulf coast fish. For bird lovers you will see and hear osprey, great horned owls, pileated woodpeckers, great blue herons, egrets, wood storks, roseate spoonbills, screech owls, white and brown pelicans, frigates, cormorants, anhingas and many other sea birds. There are no poisonous snakes or other dangerous wildlife on island....

Fishing. Fly and cast fishing is epic as the waters surrounding the island are nick-names by the locals as "The Kitchen" - and are teeming with gulf coast fish.

Beach-coming is also wonderful on property and along the sandbar. Exploring our private island is fun for all. The kids will enjoy the 200' Zip line.

There is a massive number of family games, DVD's and High speed internet with Apple TV with access to Netflix and other movie options

Nice property, overpriced and very inconvenient
Its a romantic idea, house on an island. Then the reality sets in. If you have a large party, the house has room but everything has to be boated over. Frig is nice but regular size, so with a large party you're making a trip a day for ice. The 70' beach is really about 10' of usable beach. The lease requires that you remove all of your trash when you leave or the owner will keep your security deposit. Master bedrooms are very small and very basic, if you're looking for great amenities or frills then this is definitely not your place. Oh, did I mention the mosquitoes, take along a lot of insect repellent. Overall impression, nice place, but I can get a lot more at the resort in Longboat Key for a lot less money.

Simply quintessential!
Our family (including 6 children ages 6 weeks, 1 yr., 2 at 2 yrs. , 4 & 6 yrs. and up to 58 yrs with 3 generations!) spent a very relaxing, fun and safe week over Christmas and our experience was truly quintessential- we do not know how it could be improved upon! The home is absolutely beautiful inside and out, very welcoming, comfortable and well laid out and well equipped for our growing family. The spacious kitchen and family room (truly a great gathering space!) as well as the large dining tables & plenty of teak chairs made for great family mealtime together. The large covered & screened in porches off the gathering room were great for relaxing conversations & play areas for the little ones and watching the sunsets and boats on the water. And the beds & linens were the most comfortable we’ve experienced outside of our own! We rented our boat from Cannons Marine and they were very helpful with everything from boating suggestions to fishing tips and helped us load and unload. From our own private white sand beach (perfect for sand castle building) & clear, clean waters we saw beautiful shells and dolphin every day while swimming and paddle boarding around the island. We also saw two manatees. The birds and wildlife around the island were fun to watch and the sunsets were spectacular. We fished everyday from the dock, out on the sand spit, and from the boat and caught fish every day. The paddleboards, kayaks, and canoe were used everyday and lots of fun making trips around the island. Steve and Catherine have truly created a little glimpse of Heaven here on earth! We look forward to the privilege of returning again in the future.

Family Vacation
Great family home with lots of space to relax, eat and play games. Loved the beach for the little ones and the sandbar was great fun for all. Cannons Marina was great place to rent a boat and MarVista just across the water for dining out. Great experience in every way.

Wonderful way to spend the 4th of July holiday!
After moving to Sarasota last year, we spent the 4th of July on our 25 foot Pontoon boat at the Jewfish Key sandbar with family and a hundred other boats! While there, we could see the private island house on the shore and thought how great it would be to spend the 4th next year at that house. So we did this year and were not disappointed! The house has beautiful water views from every room and has everything you need for a fun family vacation. With stand up paddle boards, kayaks and a boat dock for our boat we had everything we needed to enjoy our time on the water. There are 2 screened porches to sit and read and enjoy the outside and the water views! The grounds are well manicured for strolling and dog walking.

It's a beautiful home in a beautiful spot.
Was initially worried about only having boat access, but this wasn't an issue for us. It's close to everything you need and everyone on Longboat is very accommodating. The fishing was spectacular for our eight-year-old. The best spot was right off the dock at sunset. Our family really loved the whole trip.

Paradise Found!
We had the pleasure of staying over Easter Break and had the most amazing time. All of the amenities were just as described. The zip line was a huge hit with the kids. It was fabulous to have our own paddle boards and kayaks. We enjoyed the fire pit one night while the kids roasted marshmallows. The open porches were divine and a great place for happy hours and sunsets. The island house was a perfect retreat for our family to unplug and enjoy all that the area had to offer...sun, sand, water, beautiful birds and dolphin while enjoying all of the comforts of home! Thank you Stephen and Catherine for providing the special spot for a fabulous fiftieth birthday celebration with my family!
