longboat key

My family and I are considering a rental in Longboat key. The house is listed for rent on VRBO and I just noticed it is listed for sale as well through a realtor ( i googled the addresss). We want to rent the house for a week in April 2012. I wanted to know all your thoughts.

Also, we are a laid back family of 7 and we were considering anna maria/holmes beach but found a great house in longboat key. We love the beach and hope to kayak. In the evening I love to cook but do plan on going out to eat a couple of nights. Our children will be 9,10,13,16,& 17 all girls. Is longboat a good choice? Thanks in advanced

If you send the address to me in a Private Message I'll let you know what I've heard re selling, and also thoughts about the location, etc. You'll be coming in prime season, so I'm a little surprised you're able to rent a really nice (and fairly large?) house for only a week at that time of year.

I'm biased, but I think that Longboat would be a great place for you and your family. It can be as ritzy as some people want, or as laid-back as others want, or as active as even others want. You can rent kayaks on Longboat and keep them by the house if it's on the water. Also you'll want to rent bikes to go "cruising" up and down Longboat (10+ miles of bike trail). Lots of food options, too.

Anna Maria is fun too, especially the north end.
