"We wanted a place to stay that we could be ON the BEACH and hear the waves! This was it! I loved that this was an end 1st floor unit and we didn't have people in front of our space. I walked out on the beach or the pool was also there, but in the middle of the entire unit and not close to ours. The pool was clean and large enough and heated (good because of all the rain the weeks before)
It was low season but nice people there and not crowded. We enjoyed music on the sound system and liked the remote lights/fans. Close to St Armand's Circle and Mote Marine ... both of which we visited.
Did I mention listening to the waves??"

"My husband and I have enjoyed the last two winter seasons (2014 & 2015) at this wonderful property. The owner is such a pleasure to work with and does make you feel very at home. The house if full of delightful artwork...very unusual for a rental...and we were always seeing something new that we hadn't noticed before. The kitchen is up to date and fully equipped including the owners' pantry which they generously share. The bathrooms are large and lovely. When family visited, they spent a good deal of time in the pool. It was so nice to step out the back door and go for a swim and there is plenty of seating around the lanai. There is also a private beach club only 5 min. by car or 10 min. on a bike with restrooms and showers, picnic tables, grills, etc. We loved taking a glass of wine to the beach to watch the incredible sunsets over the gulf. Publix and CVS are "right around the corner". The whole area has lots of good restaurants to choose from and it is fun shopping on St. Armand's Circle as well as downtown Sarasota which has a marvelous performing arts center, opera house and live theater. Longboat Key is beautiful and this property is in a perfect location to enjoy all the area has to offer(golf, tennis, boating, culture) or to simply relax and read a good book. We highly recommend it and certainly hope to return."

"Great home for our extended family get together. Roomy, clean with a great kitchen and comfortable bedrooms and lots of beachgear.
I used to have a vacation rental that was half the size of this home. Renters have no idea how difficult it is to keep up a rental when things develop wear and tear much quicker than in your own home
My rental was 1/2 the size of this home and we were constantly repairing things so this place for the size we found to be in very good condition.
I never met the owner and have no interaction other than from e-mails but based on my own experience as a rental owner this home has been well attended to and I appreciated getting back our damage deposit after just a few days.
Last but not least the pool has an.adjacent tiki bar and grill which was a great place to kick back and relax. We could not walk to the beach but it was a minute drive and they had a beach stroller to carry belongings which made it convenient.
For the size of the place and being on Longboat Key the home is a very good deal."

"This little cottage is prefect for couples or a small family. Well equipped with all your needs. Across the street from Beach with it's own little hidden path. The outdoor space is great! Nice outdoor shower. Very cozy and comfortable."
