Great Outdoor Space!
The house had the best outdoor space of any VRBO we have rented-and we always rent with a pool. It had a wonderful outdoor seating area and there was a bathroom right off the pool which made it perfect for kids.
Our only complaint would be that the third bedroom is small room off the kitchen and laundry room with bunkbeds and not much room for anything else. The house is a little outdated but perfectly usable. If it weren’t for our need of a larger third bedroom, we would definitely rent there again.
Thank you very much for your stay and we're glad you enjoyed the pool and outdoors! Your feedback is appreciated and we will update the website to note that the third bedroom is small. While it does offer a TV, storage drawers, and standard twin size bunks, it is most comfortable for only one adult or two children.
Sea lion Longboat Key
The home was perfect for our family. Our favorite part was the outdoor seat and pool. Also being able to have our boat in the back yard was a huge bonus. I highly recommend this home!
quaint, comfortable setting and helpful owners
We loved the cottage layout, open spaces which lead to the patio and pool. Well stocked unit with bicycles, utensils, towels, kitchen items, linen. Fine kitchen and outdoor barbecue. Easy access to the beach and canal. The setting is a quiet residential area. We enjoyed the heated pool. The owners were cordial and responsive.
We're glad that you enjoyed your stay at Sea Lion Cottage. We have tried to think of every amenity that one could want, especially in the kitchen for those who love to cook. Thanks for being such wonderful guests and we look forward to your return.
Family fun at Sea Lion Cottage!
We had a great time at Sea Lion Cottage and already miss it! This house was perfect for my family of 5! We went for Christmas and Michael was nice enough to have the place decorated for our arrival. I have a 5, 7 and 10 year old, there was plenty of room for us to stay. There is a pool and it was perfect for my kids. It was on the lanai but all doors locked easily if you had small children. The cottage was clean and decorated nice. It is an older house but looks as though it has been recently redone. They left some of the "vintage" touches which added to the charm of the cottage. The kitchen had every kind of pot, pan and plate you could image and there were plenty of towels. The garage had boogie boards, noodles, and chairs for the beach with a wagon to bring it down. We walked to the beach daily which was beautiful and not crowded, about a half a mile walk. We rented and fished off the dock so we really enjoyed that feature. If anything came up the owner was very easy to get in touch with helpful. Over all a great stay and we would defiantly look into staying there again!
We are delighted that you and your family enjoyed your stay. It really is the perfect spot for a family, where you can enjoy the outdoor seating on the deck while watching the kids splashing in the pool. Thank you for your stay and we do hope that you return again soon.
Great vacation in this lovely home!
We spent Thanksgiving 2016 and the following week in the Sea Lion Cottage. The home had everything we cold possibly need. Very comfortable beds, fully equipped kitchen and fantastic pool and patio area. This was an excellent location on the canal with a dock for our boat. We were in a quiet area, but near great restaurants, shopping and fun activities. Nice décor and more. Because of the care of the owners, we had a very enjoyable stay in this lovely home.
We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay. November is one of the nicest months of the year on Longboat Key, and we hope that you'll return again soon!
Perfect Home, Clean, Private Pool, Boat Dock
This home is perfect! We loved it so much, on the drive home, my wife emailed the owner to see if we could reserve the same time next year. This is a large 3 bed 2.5 bath that was more than enough room for me my wife and our young child along with another couple and their little one.
Home was very clean and on a quiet street, everything was in working order and more. We were excited to see bicycles in the garage, a beach wagon, beach toys, pool toys and more! Plenty of plates, cups, silverware, towels, sheets, cooking utensils, and a full size washer and dryer it was all there!
Beach access was a short walk away and we loved being able to keep out boat in the water tied up to the dock.
We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay and enjoyed the amenities that Sea Lion Cottage offers. No one likes to arrive at a property to find the barest of household items, so we have tried to ensure that there is more than enough of what you need for a comfortable vacation. And there is no better review than a return visit, and we look forward to welcoming you back to Longboat Key next year.
