Guestbook comments from the manager
Thank you for another wonderful stay. We were here for one week last year, three weeks this year, and have already reserved for two months next year! We love the village and miss the peacocks, the friendly neighbors, and the "dog romps" every afternoon at 5:30. We had a special dinner at the Beach Bistro, and liked walking to Moore's or driving to the Beach House for lunch. Our morning walks on Coquina Beach were a must–lots of sunshine & good birding.
We look forward to next year!
Historic Longbeach Village is truly a unique island paradise. Close to Sarasota Bay, beaches, Anna Maria Island, restaurants, shops, and attractions; yet secluded and peaceful with Florida charm. We fell in love with the natural beauty and connection to the arts community. And were intrigued by the stunning and colorful native wild peacocks that roam around the village.
