"My husband & I haven't been to LBK in 5 years and we picked the best place to stay. The cutest cottage that had absolutely everything we required. It's a pet friendly cottage so our little Havanese was quite happy as well.
The cottage is clean, very well maintained & the king size bed is comfortable with great pillows !!! The day bed was a great place to read & our dog loved it to watch what was happening outside. We didn't get to use the hot tub because the temperature was in the 90's but used the yard to sit & relax & watch the lizards drink our dogs water from his bowl. Very cute & entertaining.
Short walk across Gulf of Mexico Dr. to the best beach (cottage has everything you require for the beach). Watched the Dolphins and apparently a manatee (not sure about that 😀).
Harry's Continental Kitchen has a store; restaurant and take out deli which is all a short 3 minute walk away. Every morning we walked to the store for our morning coffee.
We would not hesitate to stay again when we decide to return to LBK. Thank you to the Abbotts for the use of their Oasis in Paradise."

"The booking process went very smoothly. This is a small but very nice unit, perfect size for a couple staying for a few days. This is on a very quiet part of Longboat Key, and the beach directly in front of the condo never got crowded, which is exactly what we were looking for. We spent most of our time either on the beach or on our balcony, reading and listening to the crashing waves. St. Armands Circle is about a 10 minute drive away and has many shops and restaurants, but we ate most of our meals on our balcony. There is a great grocery store just 5 minutes away. I highly recommend this condo for a relaxing break."

"This was our first rental in this area. It was perfect. Denise was very responsive to any questions that we may have had. I think that our favorite part was having our breakfast on the lanai. It had a beautiful view and we loved listening to the waves. The condo itself was exceptionally clean and well-equipped. We appreciated the fact that Denise left us many items to get started so that we didn’t have to rush immediately to the store. Longboat Key is a very convenient location to Sarasota and St. Armands. We found the people in the building very friendly. We would highly recommend renting this unit."
