I happened upon this property quite by accident six years ago ,while searching for a Gulf front accommodation on Longboat Key. It was love at first sight! No more highrise condos for us.
We rented for the first three years and when a cottage directly on the beach became available for purchase, we were absolutely thrilled and closed in a day. We own one week and rent another cottage for the second week.
The well equipped kitchens have been refurbished with stainless steel appliances, new cupboards, ceramic floors. The bathrooms have been updated and all new linens for the four poster master bedroom and twin bedded second bedroom.
As you approach the "Hemingway" style cottages on the Gulf side, a tropical paradise, and a red brick walk, welcomes you. The Bay side is lovely as well and it's a great spot to watch for Dolphins and Manatee or enjoy the pool.
Several gourmet restaurants in the area. Publix about ten minutes drive and you must visit Harry's Deli for lots of delicious takeout!. If you want nightlife, this is not for you although you can drive into Sarasota.
Azure blue water,miles and miles of white sand, balmy breezes, soaring gulls, blue skies and romantic sunsets! You'll love it!
Only 50 more weeks and we'll be back. (It doesn't sound as long as a year)!
