Guestbook comments from the manager

We loved exploring Historic Long Beach Village and watching the Peacocks, having our traditional waffle ice cream cone at Scoop Daddys and visiting the Mote Aquarium and observing the manatees. Next we will plan on more time.

Family fun in a cozy setting

  • 5 of 5

We booked the French Country cottage and invited our kids to the beach for an early holiday celebration. It was a perfect beach vacation. We enjoyed fishing, hanging out at the beach, and relaxing in Longboat Village. The cottage is equipped with everything you need except food and drink. Our two dogs joined us and we made numerous walks around the neighborhood. My husband grilled out almost every night. Our hosts were most accommodating. The beds and linens seemed new and were oh, so comfy. There were bunches of towels for showers and the beach. We loved being able to watch the sunrise over Sarasota bay, just a short walk down the street. Next time, we will use the kayak. We highly recommend this place for comfort, relaxation and convenience. It's quiet and private and equipped with all the comforts of home.

Fantastic vacation house!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the cottage was great! The location of the house is so perfect! Just a very short walk to a perfect, peaceful beach and just 3 houses from a quiet fishing pier. My family and I enjoyed all of the home's amenities. The private, fenced yard was perfect for relaxing and grilling, as well as cleaning up with th outdoor shower. I was also incredibly excited about the Keurig machine and having a private washer & dryer. The neighborhood was so quiet and very dog friendly. Also, Publix grocery store is just minutes away for any last-minute necessities. We spent a great deal of time fishing off the pier and used the two-person kayak provided by the rental to see dolphins and a manatee. We look forward to staying at the house again. Adele was so friendly and easy to work with.

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was perfect for our needs-me and my two 'kids' (20's). My son said it was the 'quintessential beach house.' It was great to have a fenced yard for my service dog. Close enough to the beach to walk for stargazing and sunsets. Friendly neighborhood and very dog-friendly as well...
