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

Spacious property at a great location for the shoppes, restaurants, and of course the beach.
Our stay here was very enjoyable, the beaches are lovely. The owners were easy to reach and most helpful to us during our visit. We plan on visiting the area again and would not hesitate to stay here again.
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
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!
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
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.
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!
Lots of great restauarants and activities on Longboat Key. The North end of LBK is very private and quiet. Nearest restaurant is MarVista Dockside just across Gulf Drive half a mile away. (Be sure to visit the wild peacocks off Russell Street.) Mote Marine is on the south end of LBK. St Armands Circle is also on the south end with lots of restaurants and shopping. Cannons Marina is 1.7 miles south and is a great place to rent a boat. Joan M. Durante Park, The Ringling Museum are also great visits. Anna Maria Island has lots of restaurants, rentals, putt putt, etc. Anna Maria City Pier, Bradenton Beach City Pier, Coquina Bay Walk is just across the bridge from LBK. Quick Point Nature Preserve, Island Golf Club, Harbourside Golf Club, Siesta Key Drum Circle, Ed Smith Stadium Baltimore Orioles.mlb.com. are just a few local interests.
