LOVED this Quaint cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Husband & I needed a get away & this cottage was perfect! We had the BEST time!! Great location, close to grocery store, shopping, restaurants (some in walking distance). Upgraded, Clean, cozy, comfortable, well stocked kitchen! Look at photos, that's what you get & owner/management great communication. Just the right size for a couple!! Beach access very short walk across street with your own private path. Owners provide beach chairs, small /large coolers, towels etc. Although cottage is located just off main street, traffic noise was not a problem at all. Private, quiet, back yard with shower, table/chairs & loungers PLUS a hot tub which we enjoyed every evening for "wine time"

Our highlight...We chartered a sailboat for a champagne sunset cruise after dinner at Mar Vista ( of our fav restaurants)

We love LBK & have visited many times over the past 20 yrs & always stayed at the high end resorts but we can't wait to return to this Gem. Highly recommend! Thanks!!!!!

Almost perfect

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this lovely property. It's perfectly situated and very comfortable. The hot tub is great and we enjoyed our cocktail in there each day! The owners and manager are very helpful. The beach access across the road is great and we enjoyed walking on the beach every day - what would make this place perfect is if there were a couple of sun loungers available on the beach - there are a couple available in the yard but to also have them on the beach would be brilliant.

Great little getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit. Very cosy little cottage with everything you need. Very comfortable and we were able to bring our dog. It's right across the street from the beach, so you can go back and forth easily. The owners are very nice and helpful. We plan to visit each year!

An Oasis in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I haven't been to LBK in 5 years and we picked the best place to stay. The cutest cottage that had absolutely everything we required. It's a pet friendly cottage so our little Havanese was quite happy as well.

The cottage is clean, very well maintained & the king size bed is comfortable with great pillows !!! The day bed was a great place to read & our dog loved it to watch what was happening outside. We didn't get to use the hot tub because the temperature was in the 90's but used the yard to sit & relax & watch the lizards drink our dogs water from his bowl. Very cute & entertaining.

Short walk across Gulf of Mexico Dr. to the best beach (cottage has everything you require for the beach). Watched the Dolphins and apparently a manatee (not sure about that 😀).

Harry's Continental Kitchen has a store; restaurant and take out deli which is all a short 3 minute walk away. Every morning we walked to the store for our morning coffee.

We would not hesitate to stay again when we decide to return to LBK. Thank you to the Abbotts for the use of their Oasis in Paradise.

Great cottage for 2 or 3

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for a week during Christmas with my four year old son. It was perfect for us. This cottage was comfortable, clean, and well-appointed. It's very close to the beach, the hot tub was so relaxing (and in a little garden oasis behind the house), and Harry's Convenience store is a short walk in case we needed anything! The owners were attentive with any questions or concerns we had. We would definitely stay here again. Thanks very much for a wonderful stay!
