Sandy Cove condo description

SIESTA KEY BEACH VOTED NUMBER 1 IN US 2011 - DR. BEACH!


Welcome to La Dolce Vita - a beautiful, fully-equipped, and furnished, ground-floor Condominium on Siesta Key, a barrier island in the Gulf of Mexico in Sarasota, Florida. See why we have renters who return year after year... View a photo slide or virtual tour of the unit and grounds by scrolling down.

Our clean, comfortable, centrally heated and air-conditioned condominium is best suited to 2 people as the washroom is ensuite. The unit features stunning Mexican tile floors, a lovely and functional galley kitchen which is fully equipped for your culinary delight too. The 3-piece bathroom has been beautifully renovated. All linens are included: sheets, towels, beach towels and chairs etc. There are two digital cable televisions; one VCR/DVD, one DVR; a stereo with CD/Cassette player, Ipod speaker dock/radio and wireless internet access. Community washer and dryer just outside your door. At your home away from home, you also have the use of a large patio, lanai and barbecue.

La Dolce Vita is located at Sandy Cove 3, a 16 unit condo situated on a stunning Gulf front property (shared with three other associations). Many residents live here year round so the pride of ownership is evident - this is no 'revolving door' hotel or motel. This is why short term rentals are not permitted.

Take a leisurely two minute walk down an idyllic tree and flower lined private roadway and enjoy birds singing along the way. When you get to the end you will see our lovely original Old Florida 'Homestead' - legend has it that it was originally owned by the 'Buster Brown' shoe family. It is now used as a Clubhouse for social get-togethers, potlucks and parties. This charming wood sided dwelling overlooks a huge lawn, the Gulf of Mexico, a private fishing pier, and the beach. It is breathtaking to say the least.

Back at home, simply walk out of your door and plunge into the pool (exclusive to Sandy 3) or lounge pool side (and most of the time you will have it all to yourself!). The sun concentrates between the 2 buildings and it is a lovely and warm place to read or snooze. Later on, you can go to the public beach for a long walk or bike ride and to enjoy the sunsets, the colours of which are beyond compare!

Siesta Key is a spectacular island with something for everyone. Cross one of two bridges to the island and vive la différence! Lazy days and relaxation are the norm here! For those looking for some peace and quiet, you've got it; for those who love to fish and swim in the Gulf, you've come to the right place. You can indulge in many cultural events (Sarasota is the cultural capital of Florida) or sporting activities such as bike riding, walking, snorkeling, scuba diving, swimming, surfing... Native Drum Circle on Sundays at dusk. And but of course, let's not forget golf! Indeed, you can find everything here!

The island has whatever you need without being 'too commercial'. A five-minute walk to Siesta Key Village north and you will find shopping, banking, restaurants, cafés, massage therapy, aesthetics, souvenirs, and more. Bike riding is easy here - drivers aren't in a hurry to get anywhere because no one wants to leave! Siesta Key has a long fabulous stretch of white sand beach, one of the ten best in the US, designated as having the 'world's whitest, finest sand!' Even in the heat of the day, the 'icing sugar' composition of the sand never burns the bottom of your feet! How is that possible? No exaggeration here - there is natural beauty here no matter where you look. Have a peek at la Dolce Vita @ Sandy Cove from the comfort of your couch

To discover more about the Island and its amenities Google 'Simply Siesta Key.'

Payment accepted through PayPal (add 2.9%) or the old fashioned way if there's enough lead time in United States or Canadian Dollars (appropriate exchange added). Rates are based on maximum 2 persons and include everything except a refundable $500 damage/extraordinary cleaning deposit. Please note because Sandy Cove is a private residence a rental agreement with application must be completed.

In season rentals (January-April), limited to 3 month stays minimum. If by July a 3 month rental has not been arranged we will accept shorter stays 1 or 2 months. Thank you.
