About Stephanie Sonnabend
We purchased this property and furnished it to live in it ourselves. Then we found another place a mile away so we are keeping this and renting it. It is too charming for us to give up.
Stephanie Sonnabend purchased this Bungalow in 2012
Why Stephanie Sonnabend chose Longboat Key
It is a quiet private place where you see all sorts of birds and rarely a person. It is on the ground -- no stairs, and feels like a real Florida home.

Better than a condo - 4+ Stars
We stayed at palm cottage for 40 days and enjoyed every single day here on longboat key.
The house is set back in its own private setting surrounded by palm trees and flowering plants. It has its own private dock at the end of the canal where you can fish or sit in the screened in lanai and watch the different wildlife anywhere from birds to fish to a curious raccoon.
The house is a comfortable 2 bedroom and 2 bath house with kitchen, living room and dinning area.
It is a very easy walk across the street to the public beach to swim or watch the sunset and catch a dolphin swim by.
Kayak rentals are a block away, some shops and places to eat are all within walking distance also.
Palm cottage is a work in progress, many updates were made and some things still need updated to make this a true first class, 5 star rental. Updating or not, I would stay again without hesitation.
The owner is very easy to talk to and lives nearby and always responded to any question we had about the house or recommendations on places to shop or places to eat.
Thank you for your wonderful review. We are pleased that you have discovered why we love living in North Longboat Key. Uncrowded beaches, a casual lifestyle and near many places to enjoy new experiences. We loved hearing about some of your explorations -- polo matches, flee markets, bicycle rides and more, not to mention the birds living in the trees and the mullet jumping in the canal just outside your door. We will continue with our plans to update the home in between our rentals as we plan on keeping charming Palm Cottage for years to come.
Great location to the key and beach
We loved the house and the great location to the key. The beach is like a 3 min walk across the street and small touristy shops are like a 5 min drive. They have a dock out the back where you can see manatees and fish. It’s great! It’s pretty private and the area is quiet. The wifi was good also. The owner was really easy to communicate with.
DIRTY AND MOLD
These owners are.....
I am puzzled by this review since this person never stayed at our home. I believe they are upset because they wanted to rent our house and it was not available. I personally have a mold allergy, so would never allow mold to remain in my home.Everyone who has stayed there has loved the place.
Beautiful peaceful spot on LBK
A beautiful, spacious, light-filled accommodation for a great vacation. Very private, lovely landscaping -- especially enjoyed the large lanai overlooking the canal. Walk to the bayside dock in the Village and (hopefully!) see some dolphins, or across the road to the excellent beach (must less crowded than Coquina Beach -- although you can cross the bridge easily to Coquina too). Everything in the rental worked perfectly, and the owners were nearby and very responsive whenever we had a question -- invaluable to a successful rental experience!
As Good As It Gets!
Location, Location, Location!
This charming cottage is perfectly situated on a canal and across the street from the Gulf beach. Complete with numerous upgrades and very private. The owners are immediately responsive to your questions and needs. Walking distance to two of the best restaurants on Longboat Key. Bring your kayak and dogs are welcome. We wanted to stay forever!
