About
Rolling Waves is a quaint Longboat Key getaway, where cozy cottages give way to the white sands of one of Florida's most picturesque private beaches. Each cottage has a full kitchen, separate bedroom, bathroom, sitting room, AC unit, and outdoor seating area with BBQ. The beach and ocean are only steps away from your front door. We also have a large beachside fire pit, lounge chairs and laundry. Enjoy your next vacation in your own private cottage at the beach!

These are charming little cottages with the feel of old time Florida in a wonderful way. They have a firepit and gathering spaces near the beach and wonderful beachfront with a boardwalk to the beach sands and water.

Yes! All cottages are air conditioned. You also have the option to turn off the air & open windows during the seasons that are conducive to it.
