"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."

"My boyfreind, Jeffy and I had a great time at the cottage during our vacation. We loved walking to the downtown area and rented boats at the nearby harbor. WE went night fishing at the city pier. Loved it, can't wait to come back!"

"The layout of the house is wonderful. There is a ton of space and very its well kept. The location is perfect for walking to the beach for the day or just to see sunset. We enjoyed fishing off the dock and even got to see dolphins in the canal. The owner is wonderful to work with and always answers your questions in a timely manner. This was our third trip to Marco Island and we found the absolute perfect home to rent. If you want a wonderful vacation experience, rent this house. We can't wait to come back again."
