Emerald Harbor on Longboat Key, FL exudes: privacy, larger than average island lots, manatees and other great wildlife, deep and wide boatable water, fit for larger boats and sailboats, no bridges to the intercoastal waterway and the Gulf of Mexico. Oh and a private, gated beach access within walk to all of the single family homes. We also show you inside of one of these great homes. So please join my business partner, Andrew Reese, @andrewreeseluxury and I as we show you this great neighborhood and surrounding amenities, like the Bayfront Park, dog park, tennis and pickeball courts and location on the island, proximity to Publix grocery and much morel.
