Longboat Key looks like a really nice place to live. But.... does anyone actually live there.... or is more of a place for tourists?

I could hardly find any places to rent on Craigslist in Longboat Key. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I could find a place there?

Thanks!

Have you tried realtor.com to get a feel for what the houses are going for?

A searched zipcode 34228 and it came up with 785 properties.

Renting or buying? I work on LBK and really, it's not a Craig's List type of place.

You'd be better off looking online in the classifieds of the Longboat observer as well as the Sarasota Herald Tribune.

It's a very laid back island. There's three shopping plazas: Whitfield Beach, The Centre Shops & Bay Isles, where there's a Publix & CVS anchoring down the plaza. There's only one gas station on the south end of the island.
