"This is a wonderful home - perfect for a big family. I'm disabled, and the ground-level bedrooms were a real blessing. Great view of the bay, and we caught lots of fish from the dock. Just across the street is a pathway to a gorgeous Gulf beach, so we had the best of both worlds - sunrise over the Bay, and sunset over the Gulf.
The house was large, clean, comfortable, and well equipped for all our needs. We especially enjoyed the pool area, with its large, clean pool and its tables and chairs. Part of the patio is covered, so even when it rained, we could sit outdoors and enjoy the view.
Owner was easy to work with, too. We'll definitely be returning to this slice of paradise next summer! Thanks so much for one of the best family vacations ever!"

"Couldn't have been more pleased with the house, the location, and how it was equipped and furnished. We spent a week with friends enjoying walks on the beach, lots of shopping, excellent seafood, and taking in the Ringling Estate in Sarasota (must see). This rental is well worth the money. Can't go wrong. Owner was more than helpful when there was a threat of bad weather."

"Husband & I needed a get away & this cottage was perfect! We had the BEST time!! Great location, close to grocery store, shopping, restaurants (some in walking distance). Upgraded, Clean, cozy, comfortable, well stocked kitchen! Look at photos, that's what you get & owner/management great communication. Just the right size for a couple!! Beach access very short walk across street with your own private path. Owners provide beach chairs, small /large coolers, towels etc. Although cottage is located just off main street, traffic noise was not a problem at all. Private, quiet, back yard with shower, table/chairs & loungers PLUS a hot tub which we enjoyed every evening for "wine time"
Our highlight...We chartered a sailboat for a champagne sunset cruise after dinner at Mar Vista (btw...one of our fav restaurants)
We love LBK & have visited many times over the past 20 yrs & always stayed at the high end resorts but we can't wait to return to this Gem. Highly recommend! Thanks!!!!!"

"This place is great. As this was my first visit to Longboat Key, I could not have been more pleased with this house. We loved the private pool and well landscaped back yard. We were a short walk from pristine beaches. My husband was able to walk to the bridge to fish. Close to everything, but quiet and private. I highly recommend this place."
