Longbeach cottage description

This is a 2 bedroom/1 bath funky cottage located in the heart of Longboat village across from the world famous beach and within walking distance to a public dock for fishing, restaurants and local bar. This unique place is not for those who need a high-end condo vacation. Rather, a couple or family who enjoy 'old florida' rustic living in an old cottage with the original wood floors and stone fireplace. It is an affordable way to enjoy the warm gulf waters and local beach community. It is fully furnished with older but very comfortable and clean items; new beds, all linens and utilities, kitchen supplies and television with cable. It is a simple, rustic and fun way to enjoy florida in the winter. Come on down!

                  The cottage is located on Longboat Key, an 11 mile barrier island off the coast of Sarasota, Fl. Stunning stretches of beach are across the street from the cottage. There are great restaurants, cafes, art center, tennis activities on the island and theatre, museum and gardens in Sarasota across the bridge.


                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About the owner: I bought this old cottage as a way to save a bit of old Florida from the wrecking ball back in 2005, as I love the charm of Florida now rarely found.

                  Why the Owner Chose Longbeach:
                  I live on the island and have enjoyed sharing this old cottage with those who enjoy having a fishing/beach shack for a short or long term visit.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  I really enjoy this part of the island, as it is the last stretch of the island ground free of condos and oversized homes. The location could not be more ideal and the salt air and pounding gulf fill the night air. Peacocks roam the street freely and seagulls fill the morning sky.
