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.

Short walk or bike ride to Sarasota Bay with public docks and benches, tasty neighborhood restaurants, Longboat Key Center for the Arts, and beaches. This property is spacious with some very special features, including plush carpeting and hard-wood floors, two walls of floor-to-ceiling glass doors in dining room providing lots of fresh air and natural lighting, ability to close off dining room from living room and kitchen/breakfast area with pocket doors, private access to guest and twin bedrooms from portico and garage, wrap around lush garden, screened enclosure with grill and seating. Plus modern conveniences such as 40' HD TV with premium movie channels, DVR, DVD/VCR, high-speed cable internet with WiFi, and free unlimited calling to the U.S. and Canada making it easy to stay connected to family and friends.

The house was very well maintained and had every amenity needed for a wonderful vacation. The fruit trees were a welcomed treat. There were 4 bicycles provided and we had many places to choose from depending on what we wanted to see, e.g., Anna Maria Island, Joan Durante Park, etc. Would certainly return!

Longboat Key Stay

  • 5 of 5
Really enjoyed our stay. The property is spacious and included everything the family needed both to feel at home and on vacation. Its situated in a quiet neighborhood within easy walking distance to the beach or the bay. Also, its strategically located between Sarasota and Anna Marie Island. Came complete with bikes, beach chairs and even a couple of fishing poles. The back garden is very lush and provides a beautiful backdrop from within the house. Also, the owners were extremely prompt and professional. Would recommend this property to anyone looking for a comfortable & relaxing stay with terrific value for the investment.

Breathtaking Longboat Key Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5
This home and the area were the perfect spot for a family vacation. We enjoyed the bicycle rides to the beach and the beautiful scenery. My kids loved all of the near by beaches and the local restaurants. There really was no need for a vehicle being that the bikes were provided and everything is so close to the house. On our bike rides into the town or to the beach we passed so many beautiful trees and flowers and even Peacocks. The house was very spacious and extremely well kept. I would recommend this rental to anyone looking to have a good time and get away from it all for a little while. I will definitley go back to this spot for another vacation with or without the kids. :-)

Peacock Paradise on Longboat Key

  • 5 of 5
What a great property. Very retro/modern with every home comfort required for a comfortable home from home experience.

There are great facilities for dining/lunch within walking distance. You are also within walking distance to the beautiful Gulf of Mexico and sugar white sands, we felt very spoilt.

There is wildlife to be seen right outside the front door with Peacock wondering aimlessly going about their business, it's simply wonderful.

We would definitely recommend this home and would love to visit again sometime soon and escape the cold and rain of the UK.

Thank you for making our holiday wonderful.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5
Our entire family enjoyed this VERY well equipped home. We tried to think of something that the house was lacking, and we came up lacking a suggestion for improvement. The staff was extremely receptive to our questions and made our trip from overseas go smoothly. The location was everything you could desire, quiet, yet close to the beaches and wonderful restaurants and shops.
