Overview

Longboat Key House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

This charming cottage is located on the north end of Longboat Key in historic Longbeach Village. You can watch sunrise from the community dock (steps away) and sunset from the nearby beach (a short walk).

Longboat Key has everything - great restaurants, shopping - check out St. Armands, and the beach is fabulous. The beach is beautiul white sand where you can easily laze away the day, walking, shelling, swimming and lying in the sun (or shade) or just gazing out at the water watching the dolphins.

The home has been remodeled - a 10 month job for my husband, myself and some great trades people. We've added all new electric, plumbing, and metal roof; tearing off and rebuilding the back of the house and installing two completely new baths, master and guest, and a new kitchen. The home has an open floor plan with a view from the living area to the kitchen and the back door. The back door opens onto a patio and lawn area. The living area is 1,250 square feet.

The spacious front room features a living and eating area, an office area with desk, wifi and printer (HP Deskjet 1000). There is a flat screen TV, electric fireplace and a lazyboy chair as well as a sofa, tables, etc. The kitchen features a handmade dockwood center table for gathering around or working on, as well as a bar area and granite tile countertops.

The master bath is adjoining the master bedroom and features dual sinks and an oversize shower. The guest bath has a shower/tub combination. The master bedroom features a king bed and flat screen TV. The guest bedroom has a convertible bed than can be either two twin beds or a king bed.

There is a free trolley during the season that runs south to Sarasota and north to the end of Anna Maria island.

A well trained dog is welcome. Please feel free to call us and ask questions. 303-807-8494 - Karen, 303-378-5543 - Brian.

About Karen and Brian Feeney

We have five rental properties including two rentals in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. Brian works for Tom George Yacht Group and is a former Airport Manager, and Karen is a recently retired Municipal Finance Director. We moved to Florida from Colorado in May, 2012.

Karen and Brian Feeney purchased this house in 2011

Why Karen and Brian Feeney chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

We chose a vacation home in Longboat Key because it's one of the most beautiful places on earth with the best beach in the world! We've been coming here for years and finally found our own little piece of paradise. The people in the Village are great and the snowbirds come for many years in a row, so there is a genuine feeling of community.

What makes this house unique

This home is one of the first built in Historic Longbeach Village. It is built with blocks made using local sand with conch shells and cement.

Relaxing Winter Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Brian and Karen, Sunshine Cottage is a delightful "get away spot". You provide all that is needed for a great vacation. We appreciated the access to bikes and beach accessories. The location is terrific! The water views, proximity to the beach and pet friendliness make the cottage very welcoming. Thank you for sharing this piece of paradise.

Merry Christmas on Long Boat Key

  • 5 of 5

Brian and Karen,

Thank you again for letting us use the cottage for Christmas week. We really enjoyed it. You guys did a great job decorating for the holidays. The only thing we don't like about staying there is that we have to eventually leave. We can't wait to go back.

fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Brian & Karen, Karol & I want to thank you for the use of your cottage this past week. We had the most comfortable,relaxing time. The work you 2 did on the cottage is nothing short of incredible. We really enjoyed our visit even though we had to endure a tropical depression. We couldn't think of anywhere else we'd rather have been then right there. We will be back. We love the area, now we have a place to rent that we love as well. Thanks again.
