By Blood and By Choice, #Ohana | $19.9 Million

 

“Ohana means family.  It means no one is left behind and no one is forgotten.”  -WD

$19,000,000 may seem steep for a single home.
But for a private, direct ocean-front resort…  not by any standards.

Those familiar with Longboat Key, the tony barrier island off Florida’s west coast, have likely driven past Ohana more than once since she was built in 2013 never knowing she existed.  Home to famed success the likes of Michael Kohrs and more, along with top-level executives of the world’s most influential companies, Longboat Key may be the last retreat for those with the financial means who still desire privacy and independence.

Made of dreams in its perfection for only two heartbeats, make no mistake in Ohana’s destined design to accommodate all of your family together at once whenever you chose… be them by blood or by choice.

Four connected Balinese retreats encircling the free form pool and focused on the distant ocean stare combine to welcome guests in six private rooms.  The owners private reserve, the guests opposite but connected twin retreat, and the independent beach front extended family quarters for the remaining three retirement selections.  All centered upon the common gathering and dining focal pointe.

211 feet of direct beach front on the Gulf of Mexico is likely to be your first stop once behind the gates of Ohana, but it certainly will not be your last.  Commanding over two and half acres, Ohana’s serene walking paths atop Hemingway natural coral stone will lead to your private tennis courts, heated spa, sundeck and more… still behind the gates.

Have a quick watch below and see what Ohana truly offers in this behind-the-scenes clip:

Arrival to Ohana remains as private as your lifestyle with two FBO options at Sarasota International Airport less than 17 miles from your entry gates.  Dolphin Aviation or Rectrix Aviation, both coded as KSRQ, provide around the clock tier-1 service.
