Stayed here a few nights. Very disappointed. No one to greet on arrival. No on site management. No one to answer the phone when we did have an issue. Dishes were not taken out of dishwasher from prior stay. Door to the cottage would not latch and secure properly. Bugs in the cottage bedroom and bathroom. Coffee maker did not...

Proximity to an exquisite, secluded beach, makes this place very special. But the cottages are shabby and the service is seriously lacking. We stayed for a month in March. For the first week we were in Starfish III. Situated next to the road, it was particularly vulnerable to noise and constant back-up beeping at the marina across the way. The...

We didn't know what to expect staying at Cannons by the Sea. There are 4 cottages all 2 bedrooms except 1 - which is a one bedroom. That is where we stayed. It's the cottage closest to the sea. When we got there, we looked for an office to "check in" at. There wasn't one. The marina across the street...

Our family was looking for a quiet beach getaway....and boy did we find it! Cannons by the sea is the definition of laid back....no bells no whistles....just waves and sand. The cottage was cute, clean, air conditioned and just right for our family of four. If you want to venture out - 'down town' was a couple minutes away. The...

The location was wonderful!! It's nicely treed an in shade. But yet only a little walk to a quiet white sandy sunny beach. The place was nicely kept and clean.. It's a little pricy but I guess that's the price of privacy an relaxation during the winter months on long boat key..

If you want a taste of old Florida, this is it. Four quiet cottages with a short walk to a pristine beach that goes on for miles. Back enough from the road that you will feel like you are in your own old growth forest. Yet, it is close to everything you will need! Yes, the cabins were built a...

Looking for a luxury hotel with all the frills, room service, and hundreds of folks crowding the beach? Then Cannon's is NOT for you. At Cannon's, you will find only four cottages, nestled among the sea grapes and Australian pines, with a pristine private beach. Yes, the cottages have been there for over 50 years, but each one has been...

This property has only 4 cottages; ours was nearest the beach, a short walk through the trees onto the dunes and the beach. The house, though certainly adequate and what you might expect of a cottage, was a bit down in the heels. Instead of replacing the bathtub, it had been repainted and the mat placed in it to keep...

Cannons cottages are comfortable, "Old Florida" rather bare bones accomodations. the location is great - away from high density, high-rise condos, etc. and offers a beautiful beach and privacy. BUT...Management has been taken over by Barrier Island Realty. I have a confirmation of reservation for 2012, a written receipt $500. deposit, a welcome letter from Barrier Island Realty dated April...

“I don't believe there is a "bad" cottage. Sundance I is a cottage with one bedroom, one bath, full kitchen, living room (with sofa bed) and dining room. The windows look out onto the beach and provide a view of remarkable sunsets.”
