Property description

The house is a bright, newly constructed ( in 2012) 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 Siesta Key's Crescent Beach 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 next door to 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 screened lanai, kitchen, or great room. The home has a lovely terrazzo-type floor, new furniture, a fully-functional, fully outfitted 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. It is designed to accommodate our family and pets for vacations 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 is a bonus room 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.

The local management company is 3 blocks away. They will take care of your needs and of course, you can always contact us with problems, questions, suggestions or feedback.

For shorter than monthly rental, contact the owner. VRBO's rate table can't handle it. The weekly rate is OK, but after that additional days are dramatically less that VRBO would calculate.

Please note December rentals end on the 30th rather than the 31st.
