Year Purchased: 2012
About: We are property owners in Michigan who fell in love with Siesta Key and decided to invest for our future life there. So we bought 'Bungalow', put our heart and souls into making it a nice place and will rent it out for the next few years to a lucky few.
That's me, laying on the lounge chair in the main picture by the pool. My wife took it after during a short break on one of the days when we were outfitting Bungalow.
Why Palm Island: Palm Island is a quiet neighborhood on Siesta Key with little traffic and easy walk and bike access to the joys of the Siesta Key Public beach and village and a short drive to all the wonders of Sarasota, Longboat and Lido Key. The median age of Sarasota is 47! That makes for a very vibrant and diverse activity level in this area. Fun for all ages.
The Unique Benefits at this House: The tropical landscape, quality of construction, unique interior design, the lush pool area on the Grand Canal and the short walk to the beach are what make Bungalow unique and beautiful. You don't know you're a few 100 yards away from what could be 1000s of people enjoying the ocean at peak season! You get both privacy, beach, restaurant, boating activity with a lovely and relaxing pool setting and alfresco shower. We fell in love with it.
