Great stay on Longboat Key
"Recently returned from 4 days at this comfortable and well-equipped cottage. Location was as promised- close to beach and bay. House was nicely furnished and spotless. Beds were very comfortable but we spent most of the time on the beach or the patio. Can't wait to go back!"

"What a great vacation we had! We are keeping the view of the pool, canal and palm trees in our minds. The house was furnished very tastefully and was very roomy. Everything that you needed on a vacation was available for you. The information binder offered many suggestions about where to eat and what places to visit. We did as much as we could and had a wonderful time! We cannot wait to return next year and we thank our hosts for being so kind and professional."

"We enjoyed our stay at The Little House by The Sea. The home is comfortable (loved the bed) cozy, and charming. We celebrated our grand daughters beach wedding, and enjoyed the pool and beach island life that came with the package. Longboat Key is quiet and lush. This home is a gem for its price."

"We could have stayed at the house for a month and still not have done everything we planned. To the north, restaurants offer great seafood, fun little shops. The Beach House restaurant was perfect for a sunset dinner. We traveled south to St. Armands for lunch at the Columbia and of course fudge from Kilwins. Lots of shopping. So many stores, so little time. We plan to stay here again."
