About Lynn Jacobs
We are a small family of three who live in Roslyn, New York. I discovered Longboat Key and its surrounding islands about thirty years ago when traveling to Florida on business. I never forgot the incredibly beautiful sunsets and Gulf beaches and the peace and tranquility I found on LBK, and, when I got married, I couldn't wait to share my "discovery" with my husband. We have since traveled the world together, but we always return to LBK. When we grew tired of "ho-hum" moldy and out dated vacation rentals, we started our search for the perfect vacation home and were fortunate to find "our" Pineapple Cottage.
Lynn Jacobs purchased this House in 2015
Why Lynn Jacobs chose Longboat Key
As they say, Location, Location, Location...We consider Country Club Shores, where our home is located, to be one of the best neighborhoods in LBK (and possibly Sarasota). We enjoy boating, kayaking and fishing so having the canal and access to the bay in our backyard is ideal. The beach is a quick stroll across the street. We often bring our dog, Lucky, when we visit and it is great fun to meet our many dog loving neighbors as we walk and admire the beautiful homes and manicured gardens throughout CCS. The location is ideal for a quick run to Publix or St. Armand's for a bite or getting off island to visit the "city". We love searching for off beat things to do and have discovered hot springs and even gondola rides. The "icing on the cake" is the cultural side of Sarasota including the Ringling Museum, shows and independent film festivals and events at Selby botanical gardens.
What makes this House unique
Being a home owner has enabled me to bring my personal attention to detail and style to The Pineapple Cottage. I have a passion for decorating and creating beautiful spaces. We love the layout of our home and that there are so many special areas for relaxation and entertaining. Even when friends are staying with us, we all seem to find our favorite spot in the house and it never feels crowded. Since we both still work, we also have plenty of work areas too; my husband favors the den. My favorite spot is on the lanai where I can close the french doors for privacy and gaze at the numerous egrets, herons and other sea birds fishing in the canal. Our son favors the heated pool, fishing from the dock and watching TV in the living room. No matter how often we visit, the wonderful swaying palm trees that surround our home are always a welcoming sight. In our absence, we have an amazing husband and wife team that keeps the Cottage spotless and attends to any concerns. We enjoy pleasing our guests and sharing our special oasis with them.

We had a wonderful visit to Longboat Key. The home was beautiful and location was perfect. The property owner, Lynn Jacobs, provided a comprehensive list of recommendations for sights worth visiting and eating establishments. We dined at several of Lynn’s favorite restaurants and her taste is spot on. Highly recommend this property if you are looking to vacation in the Sarasota area.
We enjoyed sharing some of our favorite places with you! We hope to see you again!

Beautiful home, fantastic location!
We enjoyed our stay very much! Short walk to the beach, close to stores, restaurants and shopping. Everything we needed was there and we loved having the pool. We can’t wait to come back!
I couldn't of asked for a better vacation home in Longboat Key!!
The Pineapple Cottage is beautifully furnished with a great floor plan for a family. The kitchen, living room and bedrooms were perfect sizes and very comfortable! All were neat and clean! The lanai and the pool area gave us all the extra room we needed to feel like we ALL had our own spaces.
Along with a short walk to the private beach, local shopping and restaurants, beautiful sunsets and fishing off their pier, my family had the vacation we dreamed of!
We will definitely come back to the Pineapple Cottage in the future.
Thanks Lynn and Don for your great hospitality!

Carrie and Steve:
We couldn't have asked for better guests at our home! Thank you for your positive review. We really try to create a home away from home stay for our guests. We were extremely happy to hear that your family reunion worked so well and that you were all so comfortable in our home! We look forward to a return visit! All our best, Lynn and Don
They say, “you get what you pay for”, for once I felt we got so much more!
Seldom do you find such an exceptional property on the vacation rental market. I stayed with my wife, sister and mother and found everything to be “Top-Notch”. Tucked within the private neighborhood of Coutry Club Shores at the south end of Longboat key this house has it all. I highly recommend a morning stroll past the million dollar homes, or for those more ambitious then take the traffic regulated pedestrian crossing over Gulf of Mexico Drive to the beach.
During our stay we had kayaks delivered to the house and launched them from our dock for daily excursions on the water. One evening we were lucky enough to be joined by three dolphins as we entered the bay!
This private home was spotless for our arrival and the owners seem to have spared no expense with both fixtures and fittings, and their own time with house notes and local suggestions, to create the highest quality vacation experience for their guests.
Much appreciated, thank you again for a truly wonderful stay.
We gave my 92 year old mother the master bedroom and she could not have been happier, in her words, she “felt like a queen “
We truly appreciated and were touched by your very positive review. It was very important to us that your sister and Mom who traveled all the way from England felt comfortable at our home. We loved hearing that your Mom enjoyed the master suite as much as we do! We try hard to make our Pineapple Cottage a special place for our guests. We are firm believers that family is one of the most cherished things in life and we were just so pleased to hear that you shared special times with your family at our home.
All our best,
Lynn and Don
