Perfect cosy little place, very ideal for couples, a very short stroll from the seaside where we watched the beautiful sunset. Extremely homely and spacious, Natalie had really thought of everything, with some lovely little touches! Very clean and private, would certainly recommend this to anyone looking for a lovely place to stay!

Very clean, quiet, cute cottage. Wonderful friendly host, very helpful & informative. 20-25 minute easy drive to Nathan Benderson Park-rowing venue. 2 blocks from bay where you can sit on a park bench & watch the sunset. Short drive to beaches & Sarasota sight-seeing. Short drive or walking distance to drugstores & Walmart grocery, several nearby restaurants. Comfortable bed, nice towels. Plush vegetation/plants in the yard making the cottage shady & a feeling of peaceful seclusion. Several useful items, amenities & personal touches in the cottage not available in a hotel! Delightful stay & would stay here again. Loved the cottage and the host!

We stayed one night at Natalie's beautiful cottage. Natalie is a very kind host who takes care for her guests. I can recommend her and her cottage and I am looking forward to return anytime.

The outer property was beautiful. The room was clean. No hot water for the shower. Coffee cream not in the room. The bed was uncomfortable. This was our first experience with airb&b. Not sure if we would do it again.

Can't beat the location and price for this cozy home. Close to restaurants and beaches. Very clean and comfortably cottage for 1-2 persons. Lots of trees, plants, and flowers. Very quiet! Natalie was a great host. Love the coffee and cold beer she offered at no extra price. We will be coming back again for our next weekend getaway. When visiting Sarasota stay at Cottage By The Bay. We will be back!!! Thank you! Natalie
