About Karl and Gail Schneider

This Beach cottage was built by my Father-In-Law in 1972. It has been our family vacation home for many years. The cottage has been remodeled and updated from it's 1960's original motif. My husband grew up in Sarasota, went to Sarasota High School and USF. We live in Gainesville Georgia.

Karl and Gail Schneider purchased this House in 1972

                                                      Amazing location!

                                                      Christine L.

                                                      We loved staying here. It had everything we needed, responsive hosts and the beach was a 2 minute walk away. Would definitely go back!

                                                      Cozy cottage close to the beach

                                                      Heather S.

                                                      The weather was great. Christmas on the beach was wonderful. Nice quick walk to the beach. House was nice, clean and comfortable. Will consider staying here again in the future. Great location.

                                                      Very Relaxing and close to everything!

                                                      sue A.

                                                      This marks our 7th year staying here! It is a great location with wonderful access to white sand beach at the end of the street! Well stocked and as cozy as ever. There are many restaurants close, but not too close, all of them are very easy to get to.

                                                      This is a more quiet area away from all of the tourists and a wonderful place to relax and unwind!

                                                      Amazing relaxation with natural beauty

                                                      Belinda G.Gainesville

                                                      Amazing water and sand. House is comfortable and has everything you need to relax and enjoy the tropical beauty the gulf coast has to offer. Water is beautiful clear blue and warm. Sand is soft and sugar white. Gail is a great host and makes sure you are comfortable and have what is needed.

                                                      Great location!

                                                      Judy T.

                                                      We stayed in the ground floor apartment for the month of March. We couldn't have asked for a better location. It was a two minute walk to the stunningly beautiful, white sandy beach. Using the Tommy Bahama cart in the shed to cart our things to the beach definitely simplified our visits. The beach was usually quiet and peaceful. Almost every day we viewed dolphins splashing in the Gulf of Mexico...and the water...it was turquoise! We were in a quiet location, but walk across the Longboat Key Bridge and we could find all the people we wanted at Coquina Beach. There is a free trolley at Coquina Beach that takes you to all the restaurants and souvenir shops on Anna Maria Island. We found live music every afternoon and evening. If we had any concerns at the apartment, the Schneiders were always attentive to our needs. It was definitely a fun and memorable vacation!

                                                      Cute cottage close to the beach

                                                      rich and marty d.

                                                      We have been coming to this adorable cottage for seven years. Well maintained, clean, close to the beach, it's perfect for us. The beach is great for walking and looking for shells. There are many wonderful restaurants in the area and entertainment opportunities. We love our time on LBK.
