This charming cottage is located on the north end of Longboat Key in historic Longbeach Village. You can watch sunrise from the community dock (steps away) and sunset from the nearby beach (a short walk).
Longboat Key has everything - great restaurants, shopping - check out St. Armands, and the beach is fabulous. The beach is beautiul white sand where you can easily laze away the day, walking, shelling, swimming and lying in the sun (or shade) or just gazing out at the water watching the dolphins.
The home has been remodeled - a 10 month job for my husband, myself and some great trades people. We've added all new electric, plumbing, and metal roof; tearing off and rebuilding the back of the house and installing two completely new baths, master and guest, and a new kitchen. The home has an open floor plan with a view from the living area to the kitchen and the back door. The back door opens onto a patio and lawn area. The living area is 1,250 square feet.
The spacious front room features a living and eating area, an office area with desk, wifi and printer (HP Deskjet 1000). There is a flat screen TV, electric fireplace and a lazyboy chair as well as a sofa, tables, etc. The kitchen features a handmade dockwood center table for gathering around or working on, as well as a bar area and granite tile countertops.
The master bath is adjoining the master bedroom and features dual sinks and an oversize shower. The guest bath has a shower/tub combination. The master bedroom features a king bed and flat screen TV. The guest bedroom has a convertible bed than can be either two twin beds or a king bed.
There is a free trolley during the season that runs south to Sarasota and north to the end of Anna Maria island.
A well trained dog is welcome. Please feel free to contact us through the website for any questions. - Karen and Brian

Why Karen and Brian Feeney chose Longbeach Village
We chose a vacation home in Longboat Key because it's one of the most beautiful places on earth with the best beach in the world! We've been coming here for years and finally found our own little piece of paradise. The people in the Village are great and the snowbirds come for many years in a row, so there is a genuine feeling of community.
What makes this Cottage unique
This home is one of the first built in Historic Longbeach Village. It is built with blocks made using local sand with conch shells and cement.

Relaxing Winter Get Away
Brian and Karen, Sunshine Cottage is a delightful "get away spot". You provide all that is needed for a great vacation. We appreciated the access to bikes and beach accessories. The location is terrific! The water views, proximity to the beach and pet friendliness make the cottage very welcoming. Thank you for sharing this piece of paradise.
Merry Christmas on Long Boat Key
Brian and Karen,
Thank you again for letting us use the cottage for Christmas week. We really enjoyed it. You guys did a great job decorating for the holidays. The only thing we don't like about staying there is that we have to eventually leave. We can't wait to go back.
Another great week in paradise
Once again the week came & went too fast. The cottage feels like it has become our second home. We feel so relaxed when we visit. Thank you again for the use of it.
a perfect 6 weeks!
Thank you Karen and Brian for our second year in your Cottage!!! We loved our stay and so did our dog Sadie. Your Cottage was perfectly outfitted along with kayaks and bikes. The location was wonderful so near the charming harbor and close to the beautiful ocean. We hope to be repeat customers!!!!
Once again, it was amazing
Brian & Karen, thank you so much for the use of your cottage. We had a great time again. The place is just as nice as last year. We really enjoyed our stay. No tropical depressions this year. We will be back soon.
Brian & Karen, Karol & I want to thank you for the use of your cottage this past week. We had the most comfortable,relaxing time. The work you 2 did on the cottage is nothing short of incredible. We really enjoyed our visit even though we had to endure a tropical depression. We couldn't think of anywhere else we'd rather have been then right there. We will be back. We love the area, now we have a place to rent that we love as well. Thanks again.
Thank you Don and Karol for your review. We look forward to having you back! It's wonderful to hear how people love the cottage. We're glad you had a great stay. Brian and Karen Feeney
