Private Homes cottage description

The Grand Canal Cottage, perhaps one of Siesta Key’s favorite luxury vacation homes, is a highly landscaped canal-front private luxury home featuring a heated pool with sun shelf and a separate 8-person spa. It is situated on Siesta Key within two walking blocks of the world’s most beautiful white sand beach and only a short walk to the village. This home features four tastefully decorated bedrooms that can accommodate up to twelve, three full baths, and a true gourmet kitchen featuring a six-burner gas Viking double range, a Miele dishwasher, an under counter wine cooler and stainless steel Traulsen refrigerator/cooler with glass doors. Seating for 10 at the dining table and 4 at the bar counter makes dining together easy. This fabulous home is very convenient to the Village, two blocks to the beach and the city of Sarasota which offers world-class restaurants, side walk cafes, theater, art galleries, opera, museums, specialty shops, boutiques and nightlife. The Grand Canal Cottage features an abundance of fruit trees, palm trees, flowers, a huge brick paver waterside terrace [seats 24] with a heated pool and a separate heated 8-person spa, 2 kayaks, 6 bicycles, a fishing dock with an underwater fish light and great fishing, an enclosed garage, and an oversized parking paver driveway.
MASTER SUITE AND OTHER BEDROOMS: The Master Suite is very large with two comfortable swivel chairs, a leather Stressless chair, a writing desk, a triple slider offering a wonderful view of the waterfront, wall mounted flat panel TV. bamboo floors and a very comfortable King size bed [sleeps 2]. The bath is travertine and includes a very nice shower with glass enclosure, an oversize steeping bath and dual sinks. The 2nd bedroom has 2 full size beds [sleeps 4], wall mounted flat panel TV, nice furnishings and linens. The third bedroom has 1 queen bed [sleeps 2] with nice furnishings and linens, a wall mounted flat panel TV and a leather reading chair. The 4th bedroom is a separate apartment with 2 twins and 1 full bed [sleeps 4], 2 leather recliners, private outdoor elevated deck, full tile bath, kitchenette with fridge and microwave, wall mounted flat panel TV, simulated fireplace heating system, wood floors and a high ceiling with fan. It’s perfect for a couple with small children or the teenagers who desire their “own space” An oversize new set of washer/dryers in available as well as internet, wi-fi and Apple TV.
BEACH, VILLAGE & LANDSCAPING: Siesta Beach, one of the world’s finest [rated No. 16 by TripAdviser in 2013] 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 beach including lifeguards, volleyball, morning exercise sessions, bathrooms, tennis, snack bar 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].
OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES: Everyone will enjoy the new heated pool with sun-shelf, 2 Kayaks for the canals, the 60 jet 8-person heated spa, flat screens everywhere for sports, the bicycles [6], the short distance to the beach, the outdoor gas grill, the wine cooler near the kitchen, the huge outdoor terrace, the underwater snook light bringing hundreds of fish right to the dock every night, terrific fishing off the lower waterfront deck at night, the canal front location and the nearby village.
WEDDINGS AND LARGE FAMILY GATHERINGS: The Grand Canal Cottage is designed to entertain large groups. The exterior patio veranda has plenty of seating room [24]. We have had many wedding parties with guests ranging from 40 to 50 with ease. The kitchen is essentially a professional chef’s kitchen with capability of preparing foods and h'ordourves for large groups as well.

During Winter and Summer seasons, the Grand Canal Cottage requires a two-week or more stay. Holidays are slightly higher in rates– see rates below.
