Outdoor recliner seating provides wonderful views of Sarasota Bay in front of the cottage, and out the back sliding door a canal leads to the Bay. It's a nonstop nature show with pelicans and osprey diving for fish, dolphins swim by from time to time and fish jump throughout the day.
To get to beautiful Longboat Beach on the Gulf of Mexico side we have a deeded beach access path that is 0.4 miles away (a 10 minute walk, or a quick bike or drive) See Gulf Beach pics 17,18,19). All beach gear provided: chairs, mats, towels, umbrellas, beach wagon/cart for rolling supplies down access path to beach.
The cottage is attached to another unit - so it could be described as a townhouse. It is part of a small 8 unit (cottage/townhouse) condo association. It's at the end of a private road, so there is no traffic.
