Traveled a good deal growing up and loved the carribbean- St. Barts is my favorite island but flying there is a pain. Thats why I fell in love with this home. Great vistas, blue, blue water and no need to leave the country to get there. I spent my college years in U of Miami, Florida and Philadelphia and 15 years in western Pennsylvania where the sunshine was little at best. Give me the sun and water and I am a happy person! I love Florida
My college training was in Nursing and I have had additional careers as a real estate appraiser, real estate broker, and graphic designer for my husband's sign business. We believe that customer service is number one and we do our best to deliver to you a vacation that is perfect. I hate being nickel and dimed on a vacation so our price is turn key. Because home is on an island, we try to provide you will all the fun toys so you dont have to waste time buying stuff - instead you can just play and have fun on your vacation!
Renae Farrah purchased this House in 2003
Why Renae Farrah chose Longboat Key
I love having my whole fam damily together but space is essential to our family as we are all control nuts. This home is spread out so no one is on top of each other and each person can retreat to their private pod for quiet time. Being together on this property is a choice because private space is abundant!
What makes this House unique
Something to do for every age from card games on the Happy Hour Deck , hot tubbing, swimming, fishing, snorkeling kayaking, paddle boarding, basketball, ping pong and volleyball is all offered on the premises. Boat to many boater friendly restaurants for lunch or dinner or throw a steak on the grill- or order our catering service or grocery delivery service . This vacation is all about fun and function. High speed Verizon 4 G Wifi allows you to sit on the beach and do office work or just surf, watch your favorite movie or team sport by ordering via TEXT. Special needs? - no problem - just ask, after all it is ' YOUR' vacation.

The house was spacious with plenty of room for our family of 16 ages 3 to 62. The area was easily accessible with the pontoon boat provided. The house and area had something for everyone. We saw manatee, dolphins, plenty of sea life and shells. The private beach as well as the local beaches are pristine and gorgeous. Renae and Jonathan were always available to answer any questions and help in any way. The vacation overall was more than we could have ever dreamed of. It was a vacation that all of our family members will never forget.

This review is long overdue. My family and I stayed here in July 2017. This home, more importantly the owner and property manager are fantastic. There are truly no words to describe how wonderful they are. I wanted a unique vacation home and experience for my family and I, this home gave us everything we could have asked for and more. The photos for this home do not truly show how beautiful it is and how peaceful and relaxing the area around the home are. They provide everything you could want for your vacation. We would recommend this property to anyone and hope one day we will be able to visit the property again for vacation.

It was the perfect place for our family to celebrate our 50th anniversary. Eight children/spouses and ten grandchildren joined us. There was always something to do and wonderful views. Fishing, kayaking, paddleboarding, hot tubbing, exploring, reading, evening bon fires, photography! With grandchildren aging 9-20, not one asked to leave the island to do something else. The beach was a great gathering place as well as the spacious, well-equipped kitchen/dining area. Plenty of space for alone time if that is your choice. The Bose sound system inside and out was very enjoyable and the ice maker was a real plus.

The House and the Island were just what we were looking for! The pictures and descriptions here don't give it justice, a true must see to believe and experience. Will definitely rent this house again! Thank you so much to both Renae and Johnathan for opening the home and making the stay amazing! :)

Our family was in complete awe as we arrived to Jewfish Key Island and entered the Extreme Polynesian Beach House! It is the most beautiful, peaceful and exotic beach property we have ever had the privilege of staying at. The waterfront views are absolutely incredible and the sunsets are breathtaking!! There are activities for all ages from kayaking, paddle boarding, snorkeling, fishing and exploring the magnificent plants, flowers, trees and overall landscaping. It is truly a tropical paradise! Our youngest son described our vacation in one word.... "EPIC"! Every member of our family stated that this was their best vacation ever! I might add they each have had the privilege of visiting many nice areas from Mexico, the Caribbean, Spain, Rome and other cities in the U.S. ; however this is by far the most beautiful ever visited! Many thanks to Renae & Randy for sharing your beautiful "hidden jewel" and to Jordan and Daniel for their assistance during our stay.

This home is appropriately named "Extreme Polynesian Beach House with breathtaking water views. Very large and very well equipped kitchen. The website photos don't actually do it justice, this home is 10 fold better than photos especially with regard to the stunning tropical flora on a private island. You do not have neighboring houses right beside you to contend with like you have at many other properties in the area. This home has a beautiful private sandy beach with wonderful, safe swimming water right at your fingertips- no pool is needed when staying here.
Also, the concierge service we received from inception to check out was outstanding. Thank you to Renae, Jordon, Byron and Danny for exceptional instructions and assistance. Your exceptional service and extensive knowledge of Anna Maria Island and Longboat Key area made our vacation perfect and was much appreciated. We rate this vacation our very best out of 10 years of vacationing in the Anna Maria Area. At first I was concerned about being isolated on an island but it is the exact opposite- this home is located in the hub of all the boating action and with this area being a boaters community, we had a ball boating to lunch, dinner, shopping areas and exploring nature.
This is a 5-star –class act vacation home. I highly suggest this and plan to return next year.

This property is amazing and has the best kitchen ever- fully equipped . The under the counter ice machine was fantastic and the bamboo bar a favorite hangout With so many people making drinks it was great to have a commercial ice machine . The Bose surround sound is awesome with over 2000 songs recorded , there was something for everyone. Everything is at your fingertips - fishing off the dock, swimming on our own private beach, kayaks, paddle boards, hot tubbing, boating, and snorkeling is all provided right at the home.
The private island is full of wildlife. We awoke to the birds chirping andsaw manatees, dolphins, turtles, pelicans, rosette spoonbills, grey herons and. cranes, right from our bedroom. The staff is wonderful as well and readily available to answer any questions or provide any assistance -even delivered groceries one day!
I HIGHLY recommend this rental property for those looking for EVERYTHING- look no further!
