vacation rental description

This home is called the Sea Lion Cottage offering the cozy charm of a beach cottage in a stylishly updated mid-century canal-side home .  From the moment you drive down the street you will begin to relax.  This quiet street is unique because it has homes on one side of the street and a mangrove preserve on the other side providing privacy.  A canal out back complete with sailboat depth water and a dock to sit and watch the fish jump = perfect vacation!  Add in a short walk to the beach (5-7 minutes) to watch the beautiful sunsets and a clear blue swimming pool covered with a screened lanai and you won't want to leave. A newly built outdoor shower and built-in charcoal grill complete this beach home.  Linens and all utensils and appliances are provided.  You will feel like you are home from the minute you open the front door.  

The home opens onto the living room with a fireplace and flat screen tv.  Beyond that you can open the sliding doors to the world outside to let in the warm breezes or hear your family splashing and giggling in the pool.   The kitchen and dining area are to the right. There are two bedrooms to the left and a third bedroom area off the kitchen.

The master bedroom features a king size bed complete with an en suite bath and roomy closets.  Sliding doors open from the master onto the pool deck.  The second bedroom features a queen size bed and an additional day bed for extra guests. There is a full bathroom complete with walk in shower right outside the door.  The third bedroom features a set of bunk beds and has nearby access to a 1/2 bath and the outdoor shower.

Longboat Key is on the West Coast of Florida, near Sarasota and one hour south of Tampa. Longboat Key has some of the most unspoiled beaches in the area. Our access is only three blocks away from our home where you have the feeling that you have your own private beach.  Longboat Key is a ten-mile long barrier island attached at each end by a bridge to the mainland.  In a matter of minutes you can be on Anna Maria Island- so popular for it's charming, unpretentious attitude and beautiful beaches or St. Armand's Circle, a shopping paradise. If you would like to go to theme parks - we are one hour from Busch Gardens of Tampa Bay or two and a half hours from Disney and Universal Studios. Galleries, museums, and live theater are within a 25 minute drive.

traveler reviews for this longboat key house rental

yearly Family Vacation

Review submitted: July 23, 2013   Date of arrival: June 29, 2013

Let me start by stating, I am familiar with Longboat (LBK) and surrounding area and my family and I have been vacationing the first two weeks in July on LBK, for quite some time…. The property, house, location and it’s feature facilitated a pleasurable time spend during our stay. I bring my 20 foot jet Boat down and the dock behind the house on the canal accommodates my boat, no problem. We enjoy taking the boat, going to the beach or cruising to a restaurant for dinner in the evenings. The location is perfect, for this “boat to restaurant” activity. Even if you do not have a boat, there are many fine restaurants and shopping available to the location of this house. The house itself offers more than enough room and the pet friendly status allows the whole family to be together for our yearly event. Bedrooms are well appointed, clean, and large enough and furniture, linens are above grade and in very good condition, like new. The pool is perfect when we come back from a day on the water and at the beach. We love to take the boat to the northern most tip of Longboat, anchor in the crystal clear water and enjoy the beach, sights as Dolphins and manatees occasionally pass by. Back to the house, the split design of bedrooms to the left and the extra small bedroom off the kitchen/dining room works well when six people need to sleep. The third half bathroom and outside shower near the pool is also a very functional and comfortable feature. Got to say it's like being at home, the house has all the amenities which supported a very comfortable and pleasurable stay. A/C works great, as did all the appliances. A very pleasurable, rewarding experience for my entire family. Just want to make one more comment and observation....setting up my rental agreement and communications with the principals was easy and non-eventful. Everybody was polite and attentive to the details which made my time at 616 Lyons Lane a memorably and easy experience. A great house, overall great experience.
Best regards, hope to stay here again next year…..

Most Relaxing Vacation in YEARS!!

Review submitted: November 9, 2012   Date of arrival: July 7, 2012

What a wonderful place to spend a week unwinding and relaxing. We absolutely loved spending our days lounging in the pool, sunsets at the beach and evenings grilling and drinking wine on the lenai. The house is nicely appointed with everything you need to make yourself at home. I highly recommend the Sea Lion Cottage for groups of friends, families or even couples. We had a blast and cannot wait to book for next year!

Recommended for: families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, pet-friendly, romantic getaway

Owners response: Thank you! Sea Lion Cottage is indeed a peaceful retreat by the sea, and we are glad that you found it relaxing too.
