CHARMING BEACH COTTAGE IN LONGBOAT KEY ON WEST SHORE BEACH

Bradenton Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Lovely completely new beach cottage beautifully decorated with lush landscaping and outdoor lanai for dining and relaxing. Quiet upscale residential neighborhood. Two minute walk to a quiet sandy beach and wildlife preserve. Excellent fishing off beach and nearby bay and wonderful underwater visibility for diving and snorkeling-- the water looks like the Caribbean. Five minute walk to Cocina Beach on Anna Maria Island.

Just a drive to St. Armand's circle, the Mote Aquarium and Sarasota. We are located on the northwest corner of Longboat Key, very near the drawbridge connecting to Anna Maria Island. Excellent paved walking and biking paths everywhere, as well as miles of beach to walk on. Local property manager at your service. Large garage great for secure storage.

Our cottage is located in a very quiet neighborhood well off any major roads. Most homes and condos in LBK are either near a major road or are full of party goers. Our cottage is very quiet and private, yet minutes from good night life.

We are seeking a seasonal rental (December - April but can also work monthly or weekly.

Keywords: Charming, quiet, new beach cottage with garage. 3 minute walk to white clean sandy ocean beach on the Island of Long Boat Key.

Seasonal rental preferred.

About The Owner

Tom and Sue and have married for over 20 years and have two great children. We are fun loving people but also respect others. We are "self made" people who work hard. Tom grew up on Cape Cod so he knows about traffic, beaches, and how to get peace and quiet in a tourist area. Tom is a motorcyclist , and Sue is a great gardener and Advanced Practice Nurse. You will appreciate her interior design and yard work at Long Boat Key.

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

Why The Owner chose Bradenton Beach

We have searched the east and west coast of FL. We found the east coast highly developed, and with generally cooler water. Naples was great, but the traffic and noise was intense, and the atmosphere was formal. Longboat Key has terrific beaches with gentle slopes in the water, great diving, and our location on the west side places us away from the traffic noise that impacts 80% of properties-even properties a block away from our home. Unlike most property on Long Boat Key or the west coast of Florida we have true peace and quiet. Yet an 8 minute drive puts us into good night life, and a 15 minute drive puts us at St Armand's circle with terrific shopping and food. World famous Mote aquarium and Selby gardens are 20 minutes away. Liquor and food are a 3 minute drive as are several great restaurants.

What makes this house unique

We have great neighbors, enjoy a variety of walking and biking paths, and are very close to a local wildlife preserve. We have tons of great birds and fish in the area, as well as dolphins and manatees. A five minute walk over a beautiful draw bridge puts us on Anna Maria where we can walk for a mile on another sandy beach of bike on hard or soft paths. When we complete our vacation, we are fully rested.

This is our third time renting Tom and Sue's slice of paradise. As usual, everything was perfect. House is immaculate ( thanks to Annie) and we always feel like we are staying with friends. I hate to leave at the end of our stay....until next time!

great location

  • 2 of 5
I normally do not review a property but I feel I had to do this. The house is at a great location, arrived, my husband asked if I had the right house as the closets were full of the owners belongings and the refrigerator was not clean and full of food. The closets were full of the owners personal belongings.
As I was there a month it did not leave space for our things. The bedrooms smelled like mildew, so leave the windows open. The location was fabulous and the owners let me bring my 7 pound dog. I had unexpected friends drive over from the east coast to take us out to dinner and I had them stay over night so they would not have to drive 4 hours back to east coast. The owners did not appreciate that I had guests even thought I washed and dryer sheets to remake bed. When we left all beds were made, except the 2 guests beds, as the sheets were drying. All blankets washed, refrigerator was washed out, bathrooms cleaned and fresh flowers for the next guest. As we ran a very high end bed and breakfast, I know how to leave the house for the next guest, Very disappointed. Very happy with Harry's restaurant down the road and their corner store.

Owner's Response: Our guest wanted to return and stay for a month next year. We were not able to book a return stay. Unfortunately our cottage manager did not find the cottage in a condition acceptable to our cottage manager, and more guests stayed than we booked. This review followed our decline to book our guest for another season. We believe our guests are good people, and understand there are rare times when a cottage manager and a guest do not see eye to eye.
We ask guests to be aware we do have a large walk in closet and seven foot bureau for guest clothing, as well as two other closets and bureaus. That space has proven more than ample for other guests, especially if there are just two guests. We also have a central air system with dehumidifier to keep our air fresh, and we have a monthly service contract in place to change air filters and check on the system.

We could not be happier staying at Tom and Sue's island cottage! We always feel like we are visiting with friends whenever we stay at this charming home. The house was spotless and had everything we needed to complete our lovely week on Longboat Key. We will be back!

Great for Girls getaway

  • 5 of 5
We decided on Longboat Key as our annual get together location for 6 college friends. This house was perfect! It was comfortable and spacious and had everything we needed. Tom was great to work with and very responsive to questions. The house is as described and a 2 minute walk to the beach! Perfect slice of paradise! The house is on a secluded street and very quiet. Just takes a few minutes to get to restaurants and about 15/20 to the circle. We will be back!!
