Private Homes house description
The house is a bright, newly constructed ( in 2005) 3 bedroom home near the Siesta Beaches. Located 75 minutes south of Tampa Airport, Sarasota is a community rich in history, award-winning beaches and plenty of outdoor activities. This property is nestled in a quiet community a 10 minute walk from the white sands of Crescent Beach on Siesta Key and 3 blocks from the shops, restaurants and boat rentals of Stickney Point Bridge area. There are plenty of good restaurants, pizza,ice cream and boat and bike rentals within walking distance.
This home is built on the property that has been in the family since the '50s, and is situated at the front of a large 0.4 acre property with half of it a fenced-in, grass backyard. Kids and small pets love the safe environment in which to play as adults watch from the large (12' x 40') screened lanai, kitchen, or great room. Two bedrooms (12' by 10' with a queen bed and 12' x 10' with two twin beds) and a full bath are on one side of the house. A large (14' X 28') and open great room is in the middle with a view of the backyard and the lanai through 3 sets of French doors. The master bedroom (12' x 13') suite with queen bed, and kitchen are on the other side of the home. The home has a lovely terrazzo-type floor, new furniture, a fully-functional kitchen, broadband internet, WiFi, and is scattered with artwork from our family.
We built this place specifically as a bright and airy Siesta Key beach house in 2005. It is designed to accommodate our family and pets in carefree, tasteful and low maintenance living. This house is designed to stand up to 140 mph hurricane winds, with low energy usage due to its special construction. We have tried to make this a turn-key place for visitors to enjoy, from coffee grinders to hairdryers to beach toys, we have outfitted it for our use and yours. There is also a guest book, that we and visitors update with menus and brochures from local sites and vendors, including such things as rentals for cribs, baby strollers and sports equipment. There are several places to setup an 'office' for those who can't get completely away from work. We hope you enjoy it!
This property is located across the Intercoastal Waterway from Siesta Key on Beechwood Ave., which means you can visit the beaches without having to put up with traffic on the only two bridges, it is a quieter location, and the price is right. An advantage of single family homes is that you are not limited to a single car.
There is a local management company 3 blocks away that will take care of your needs and of course, you can always contact us with problems, questions, suggestions or feedback.

Welcome to paradise!
Welcome to paradise!
Did you like what you saw in the listing photos? It looks exactly like it in person!!! This is a lovely home which feels just like your own home! You will be able to prepare any meal you desire because the kitchen is so well appointed. You can also scratch the cooking at home idea and eat at one of the wonderful restaurants in the area. The owners have complied an excellent notebook of interesting dining options, as well as information on what to do in the area. It is a 5 minute walk to Cresent Beach, or you can jump in your car for a 5 minute drive to Siesta Key Village beaches. I travel with my two dogs, and they can't woof enough about the GREAT YARD...totally fenced in with plenty of space to run and play with the neighbors' pooches. The neighborhood id very quiet and safe. I was completely satisfied with the home! It was everything and more than I expected!!! Kudos to theproperty owner and the management company for being so accommodating and answering any questions I had. The month went by too quickly!!! I didn't want to leave! Best vacation rental I have found in the Sarasota area!!! Two thumbs and eight paws UP!!!!!

Perfect vacation spot!!!
Perfect vacation spot!!!
This is by far the best place in the area! The big backyard gives privacy and safety for children to play. The beach is a ten minute walk. The neighborhood is really quiet so we had a very peaceful stay and didn't want to leave. We will be back as soon as possible. The home is very nicely decorated giving a homey feel you can relax in. The couch and chairs are all washable slip covers allowing you to relax with kids. The floors are very cool stained concrete. Everything you can think of is provided!

This lovely home is complete in every aspect and is as advertised by the owner. Our grandkids and pet were never bored with the large, fenced yard to run and play. Guests needs to bring only their desire to relax and enjoy themselves on Siesta Key or downtown Sarasota. We have visited this area over 30 years and this is, by far, the best accommodation in the best area. Can't wait to return in 2011.

Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: I am a Sarasota (Siesta Key) native. Although we live in the San Francisco area now, my family and I return as often as we are able, with or without the two mini Doxies. To us this is the most relaxing place on earth.
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
I was born and raised on Siesta Key. The house is new, but this property has been in the family since 1959 when my parents retired. The location is ideal because it is just OFF the Key to avoid heavy summer/winter traffic, but within easy walking distance of Siesta Key beaches, boat and bike rentals, and several very good restaurants, especially for breakfast. If you don't know about Siesta Key you should Google it, because it is stupendous and way too much to describe here. However, I'll add that building sand 'drip castles' on this beach is something every one from 2 to 92 should do at least once in this life.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We rebuilt the house in 2004/5 to be our ideal Florida beach house. We live in California, and we made sure the house is fully outfitted so there is no need for us to bring anything with us on the plane. For us this is a place to go to 'decompress' and relax. We think the beaches are the best in the world, and that big back yard is so quiet and relaxing. There is always some part of the yard in shade and some in sun, so we each have our favorite spots. When we finally get a good dose of relaxing on the beach, on the lanai, in the yard, or on a boat, there are so many things to do nearby the biggest problem is which? The wireless high speed Internet even works in the back yard if you are an email junkie like me, or should actually have to do some work. If they wish, we stay in touch with our guests, by email/phone, during their stay to answer questions, recommend restaurants and things to do. The local manager (whose office is on the way to the beach) has also lived there for a very long time, so there is no shortage of 'tourist' info. There is a 3-ring notebook that is actively maintained both by us and renters with places to go, menus from favorite restaurants, and house info.
