The Longbeach Cottage was built in 1920 and lovingly restored to preserve its historic qualities, while providing the modern conveniences the savvy traveler demands.
We made sure you stay connected and entertained by providing high speed, wireless internet access, flat screen TV's and custom cable channels. The Cottage has a large fenced in backyard and a quiet, comfortable and private deck where you can read, enjoy a cup of coffee, grill out and browse the internet with your lap top or tablet.
What you'll find most compelling is the location and the wealth of amenities you can access without ever getting in your car.. Walk or bike around the perimeter of the Village to bay views, a restaurant with bay front dinning, two public docks, a boat ramp, a bay front beach, the Longboat Key Art Center and a oak canopied dirt road. Walk to the gulf and some of Florida's best beaches. The vistas, sunrises and sunsets will enchant you.
The beach and the bay are pristine and if you have a kayak or paddle board you're just minutes from the Sister Keys a restored and protected group of islands in Sarasota Bay.
The location is prime for serious fishermen and provides a great diversity of opportunities. The owner can provide you with local knowledge and information on top local guides. A public boat ramp is three blocks away.
