Guest Book

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. ~ Carol and Steve

We love your home! I absolutely love the art and all the materials you chose when you renovated the house. I especially love the kitchen and the master bath. The landscaping is beautiful and I also love patio and the outdoor lighting. My four year old thinks we should move here. I am getting all sorts of ideas for renovating our kitchen and master bath at home. We are truly relaxing and enjoying ourselves. ~ Megen

We just returned home from Longboat Key.  We had a wonderful time and we enjoyed your home very much.  It was absolutely clean and comfortable.  We spent a lot of time enjoying the quiet privacy and beauty of the patio.  The canal access was great, as we rented a boat for the week and to be able to “tie up” next to the house was a real convenience – if not a bonus.  We met a couple of the neighbors and everyone was friendly and pleasant. The binder was also quite helpful. Thanks again for allowing us the use of your home for our winter get-a-way.  It was truly special. ~ Jim and Jeni

We continue to enjoy your lovely home, and try to maintain it as we would our own home. The weather has been excellent with only two days of rain & cold. It is a great pleasure to live with a beautiful garden of succulents, banyan & palm trees, diverse plants, and blossoms.  You have created a lovely setting. We have been thinking of next year, and wonder if we could rent again, at approx. the same time. ~ Stephen & Charlotte

We really enjoyed our stay at your beautiful property.  Loved the location and the tranquility.  The landscaping is marvelous, makes one feel as if they are at their own private oasis.  I will certainly recommend it to family and friends.  But, ugh, back to reality. ~ Pat

We had a wonderful time in LBK.  The house was amazing.  It had everything we needed.   We found a new eating place.  We loved Harry’s.  The kids enjoyed fishing on the canal.  They caught some fish.   Thanks so much for letting us share your lovely home. ~ Pam

I’ve been meaning to drop you a note to let you know how much we are enjoying our stay in Longboat Key, and how much we love your house! It’s really been the perfect place for our holiday, and we couldn’t be happier. I can see why you like it down here so much! (I’m already hoping that we can return sometime.) ~ Martina

Indoor/Outdoor Spaces

While renovating the home, careful planning insured a seamless transition between the interior and exterior. The kitchen, dining, living room sunroom, patio and private garden all flow together for an open out door feeling.


The grounds have many mature and exotic plants, trees, shrubs, cactuses, epiphytes, and orchids. At last count over 250 different specimens. Other highlights are large potted arrangements, sculptures and dramatic out door landscape lighting.
