Property description

*Bayou Louise Bungalow*

This cottage home is the best of both worlds. Totally renovated hideaway on rare, old Florida mangrove lined waterway. Possibly the best waterfront location on Siesta Key for kayaks, small boats, personal watercraft, walking and biking. Beaches, parks, and Gulf sunsets are a few minutes away, by foot or water. Two neighborhood beaches are steps away and world famous Siesta Key beach is an easy bike ride where you can enjoy sunning, swimming, bird watching or spotting dolphins playing!

The house has just undergone a two year total renovation. Except for the original wood floors and beams, everything is new! Bayou Louise Bungalow is an elevated house with three levels. On top is an oversized master suite with a large walk out deck overlooking Bayou Louise ~ you can enjoy the
beautiful sunsets and the magical stars at night! This suite boasts a large master bathroom, shower spa, walk in closet, sitting area, and HD TV. On level two enjoy a large living room with big screen HD TV and french doors opening to a covered porch facing the bayou. Off the living room is the new kitchen with stainless appliances with large counter space and pantry, opening into dining area. Also on this level is the second bedroom, walk in closet and bathroom.

Take the spiral stairs down to the ground level with a separate living room, 3rd bedroom, paver deck with outside shower and a one and a half car garage. Your dock is at the end of a short boardwalk through a mangrove tunnel where you can even get a look at a local manatee if lucky. Close to Siesta Key Village with restaurants, bars and shopping!

This is truly your tropical paradise ~ Enjoy the balmy breezes and tranquility~
