About Claire

Claire purchased this cottage in 1955

Why Claire chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

Beautiful, Private, White Sandy Beaches and The Clear Waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

What makes this cottage unique

Private Beach front accommodation near dining, fabulous shopping and sightseeing. The property is located directly on the Gulf of Mexico on beautiful Longboat Key, Florida.

Longboat Key is a relaxed island community that is very near all the activities in Sarasota and St. Armands Circle. A vacation here is truly an unforgettable tropical island experience.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family and I recently had an opportunity to spend a week’s vacation on Longboat Key Florida. We originally thought we would stay on Siesta Key because of a recent story, America’s Best Beaches List by Dr. Beach, that said it had the second best beach in the US based on water and sand quality.While I’m sure it has lovely sand, we weren’t crazy about the accommodations we found and we heard the island was really overcrowded, so we decided to book a stay on Longboat Key where we found Cannons by the Sea Cottages, a group of four one- and two-bedroom bungalows that we fell in love with. We were so close to the Gulf of Mexico we could hear the waves at night. The beach was spectacular, right out our front door, wide and very private, and there was always a gentle breeze. The Gulf could not have been more beautiful, clear and blue, the color of Windex.My husband and I spent our time shelling and relaxing while the kids played in the water, discovered all kinds of sea creatures and built sand castles for hours on end. It was so convenient to be able to walk the short distance to our cottage to escape the sun for a while, catch a nap or read another chapter while lazily swinging in our hammock. Longboat Key has some truly great restaurants and we sampled one or two, but we loved having our own kitchen, and that allowed us to eat whatever and whenever we wanted. And it saved us a lot of money. We’ve already reserved our cottage for next year and can’t wait to go back. Siesta Key may be number two, but to us, Cannons by the Sea Cottages on Longboat Key Florida is number one!Susie Schweppe

There is in this country ...

  • 5 of 5

There is in this country and quite possibly on this earth no place that comes closer to Paradise than the Cannons Cottages. This place is absolute magic, and after 28 years of regular visits there is still nowhere my family or I would rather be. Amankila, on Bali, is a close second...

I grew up on Longboat Key...

  • 5 of 5

I grew up on Longboat Key and moved away for college many years ago. I am a commercial and editorial photographer in Chicago and I have seen many parts of the world. I have yet to love a place more than Longboat Key. Cannon's By The Sea Cottages are unique to Longboat Key and they are one of the few family owned vacation spots that remain today. The atmosphere is tranquil and private. I love the property and the people that make it what it is. Cannon's Marina is right across the street and David and Lucille Miller set me up with everything I needed to walk right out the back door and catch Snook along the beach. Sunny, sandy, tranquil, and a great family-owned hide-away. I loved it.
