"We really enjoyed this beautiful home. It had everything we needed and is very well taking care of. We appreciated not having to buy paper goods and soaps. The walk to the beach is few minutes and we felt like we were on a gorgeous deserted island! very quiet and pristine. Saw some dolphins and all sorts of wild life. There is construction next door but you could barely hear anything and the builders were very courteous. The manager Jessica responds super quickly to any questions and is wonderful to deal with. We really had a good time and came back home very relaxed! Thank you again Jessica for making our stay very comfortable. Audrey & William"

Lovely condo in a quiet well maintained condo association
"My wife and I spent March, 2016 in this unit. The condo is very clean and exactly as represented in the photos. The kitchen is well stocked with nice dishes and high quality cookware. King bed is very comfortable. We didn't use the murphy bed but if you need to it can be partitioned off for privacy. Air conditioning worked well. Nicely heated pool right out your backdoor. Association's private gulf beach is about a 3 minute walk and beach chairs are already there so you don't have to carry with you. There is a bike/hike path that runs the entire length of Longboat Key. There are two restaurants (including the very nice Bayou Bar) within a 10 minute walk and numerous others within a 10 minute drive. The main supermarket is a great Publix about a 10 to 15 minute drive and there are a couple of convenience stores closer. Cell phone coverage on Longboat Key can be iffy at times- regardless of carrier- but the condo has a land-line if need be. Owners are very responsive. This is a great place to stay."

"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."

"Just wanted to convey to you how much we enjoyed and adore your Paradise at Longboat Key. It served our needs so well, especially the early and late checkin and checkout. As you told me, Andrew was a delight! I could just move in to your Paradise. The seating arrangements both inside and out were so conducive to group conversations or to have privacy for reading or meditating. We cooked out one evening and it was such a treat not to fight the restaurants on Memorial Day weekend. The location was perfect for our 4 days of Junior golf at the Long Boat Key Golf Club. We want to rent your Paradise again in the future.
I didn’t want to leave."
