Property description

SOPHIE'S COTTAGE: Sophie’s Cottage is a smart, sophisticated upscale waterfront retreat with a private heated pool with sunshelf, boat dock, and a short walk to Siesta Key Beach. Ideally, it accommodates 6 but can easily sleep up to 8 with 2 private bedrooms, and 2 bathrooms and 2 sleeping areas in the living room and sunroom. This lovely cottage is accessed through a lavishly landscaped courtyard bordered by a bright white scalloped picket fence. A meandering pathway of pavers in subtle shades of gray leads you through the courtyard inviting you to slow down just a moment and enjoy the surrounding tropical Florida fauna and palm trees. The cottage is colored in a soft sea-washed gray with white shutters and trim, just as you might envision a waterside cottage at the beach in your dreams.

INTERIOR AMENITIES: As you enter this spotless home, you immediately enjoy the soft subtle colors and cool sophistication resounding throughout the home. The front screened porch with rockers and wicker chairs invites you to sit a moment and enjoy Sophie’s hidden Garden with orchids and flowers of various colors. Very intriguing…. Just inside glossy white trim abounds throughout with walls painted in subtle, soothing shades of grey and mauve, floors finished in white tile or ash wood. You’ll find bright, clean spotless bathrooms finished in white tile, while a bright well lit kitchen filled with stainless equipment beckons you to prepare gourmet foods for your family and friends. A granite top dining table seats 6 with a lovely water view while 4 more can sit at the kitchen counter on stylish bar stools. Sophie’s Cottage sleeps up to 8 with a king bed in the master [sleeps 2], a queen bed in the 2nd master [sleeps 2], an Ikea convertible queen sofa bed in the living room [sleeps 2], and finally an Ikea convertible queen futon bed in the 3rd room [sleeps 2]. Flat panel televisions abound everywhere but a huge outside sun deck will quickly compel you to slip outside into the Florida sunshine and warmth.

EXTERIOR AMENITIES: Abutting the deck area is a large heated pool with a sunshelf, entrenched in a lovely landscape retreat that beckons you to slip into the warm waters to enjoy your Florida-style winter with a glass of chardonnay. And when you emerge from the spa you will feel as though you have been thoroughly massaged and totally reinvigorated. It’s fantastic and certainly large enough for the kids to splash around. Enjoy cooking on the bbq with a gas grill just off to the left of the pool area. If you are ready to explore the canals, you'll find 2 kayaks along with paddles and lifejackets along the edge of the fence. Drop in at the dock and paddle your way through The Grand Canal of Siesta Key, looking at beautiful homes and landscapes along the waterways. Back at the dock, break out the fishing rods (fishing gear can be found in the exterior closet) and try your hand at fishing the snook light in the evening hours, when the fish are actively eating and fun to watch in the water. Kids will just fall in love with this past time! During the day, explore island living by bicycles provided at the cottage! The beach and village are but just minutes away, along with plenty of restaurants, shops, beach accesses, and parks!

BEACH, VILLAGE & LANDSCAPING: Siesta Beach, one of the world’s finest [rated No. 1 by TripAdvisor in 2015] is two blocks [approx 1/4 mile] directly west on Avenida Del Mare. You’ll love its crystal white quartz sand which remains cool in the summer and fine to the touch. It’s rare to find a large canal home so close to the beach. Excellent facilities are available at the main beach access which is but a mile away and includes lifeguards, volleyball, morning exercise sessions, bathrooms, tennis, concession stand, bathrooms and plenty of parking [800 spaces and more coming]. It is within easy walking distance and a beach caddy with plenty of beach chairs and beach equipment is provided. Siesta Key Village is approximately 1 mile north of Avenida Del Mare. A leisure walk will get you there in 15 minutes. Plenty of restaurants, shops and night spots. Florida is known for its beaches, climate and foliage so this home features on its grounds an amazing amount of lavish tropical foliage to include many flower species as well as many fruit tree varieties. If you like plants and nature, you’ll love the grounds [almost like a botanical garden].
The Nation’s Number One Beach is only a short walk from the cottage and so compelling. But you also have the opportunity to explore the canal system with two kayaks available to you or explore the island with bikes available for your use as well. At night the waters light up at the enormous fishing dock on the canal where you and your family will be challenged with an abundance of large fish which include snook, red fish and snapper that love to gather around the snook light each evening. Everyone will truly be in-captivated by both the fish and light.
Ultimately, you’ll soon discover the most difficult experience here at Sophie’s Cottage will be leaving for home at the end of your stay. It’s always too short…

EXPERIENCE SIESTA KEY BY WATER: You can tie your boat up to the dock or arrange a pontoon boat rental from "The Black Pearl" (exclusive to our guests only!) for a portion of the week. We’ll be happy to assist. If you have interest, just let one of our reservationists know during your booking, and they can give you more information.
