From our family to yours welcome to our home. Over the last 30 years we have enjoyed spending time together on and off the beaches of Longboat Key doing everything including biking, boating, shelling, building sand castles, watching countless sunsets and dining out to name a few. About 12 years ago when our boys turned 15 they had more interests that kept them closer to our Sarasota home so we did not use our island home as often and decided to extend an invitation to other families to enjoy our place as much as we have.

We really enjoyed our stay at the house. It is nicely decorated and very comfortable with a beachy feel; also the kitchen was recently renovated. We were able to bring our dogs, which was a must for us, and it is very close to Joan Durante Park, which made it extra special as it is a beautiful park with great trails for walking. The house is also close to quite a few nice restaurants so we really enjoyed that too. Might be too small for large groups, but was perfect for us.
Great Vacation at the Little House by the Sea
This was our second stay at The Little House by the Sea and everything was just as it was the first time with the exception of some fresh new colors and and nice Beach Theme. The house was very clean and the beds super comfortable. There is everything you need and then some. If you need beach towels,chairs or toys they are all available in the shed. This was our last stop on a month long trip to Florida and we enjoyed every minute of it. Close walk to the beach and pool if you don't want a beach day. Thanks Brian for looking after us especially when the power went out briefly. The courtesy call from you to let us know what had happened and how long it would be out was much appreciated, the power came on just when you said it would. Until our next visit. Cheers

Our stay was great. The house was very clean and equipped with everything we needed. Beach access was added bonus.
Nice "Old Florida" house!
We had a great time at Brian's house. Everything was easy from check-in to check-out. Brian has a notebook of all the information you need, so settling in was easy. Our dogs enjoyed hanging out in the front yard, and walking them was easy in the neighborhood. We used the workout facilities and pool across the street and that was very convenient. The beach was close and beautiful - crossing the "main" street was easy.
Comfortable mattresses, plenty of towels, a washer and dryer, and a nearby Publix all made the stay very nice - thanks Brian!
Great place. Just as advertised. Beach was wonderful and not crowded
I found aNeighbor boy to take our dog for walks when we will go places his name is Ryan and he lives On saint Jude. That along with the accomedations made it perfect. Master bed and 2 twin beds in 2nd bedroom very comfortable. Brian was helpful and responsive when I had a question. Would rent again
