Riverview Estates house description

*** Please also see my other Home on reference number 1071348***
Our stylish 2,200 sq.ft. home has been exquisitely decorated in an elegant tropical style, an eclectic mix of shabby chic and vintage pieces. It sits high on a large lot in a private road of only 6 homes close to Phillippi Creek with all its wonderful birds and wildlife. Drive or cycle to Siesta Key beaches, just named America's No 1 Beach, (10 minutes by car) or visit Southgate Mall,many designer names as well as all America's favourite brands. The many varied restaurants of Tamiami Trail are equally close by, many offering take out service. Or simply relax in your own tropical paradise, sparkling heated saltwater pool (no chlorine, kinder to eyes and skin), fully screened in with al fresco eating, large gas grill for the excellent local seafood, and a spacious screened lanai! (No bugs or other unwelcome visitors!)The pool is not overlooked and the whole yard is surrounded by lush tropical landscaping.


Our fabulous beach: http://www.cnn.com/2011/TRAVEL/05/27/best.beaches
In May Siesta Beach was named America's Best Beach and confirmed what we have known for years, that the fine white quartz crystal sand has healing powers and is home to many nesting birds and sea turtles. The aquamarine ocean is warm by May/June and remains so until November. A regular morning walk on this stunning beach or a sunset shared with a friend or lover is a magical experience, never to be forgotten. The public beach has full facilities and is busy and popular, we prefer the north end of the key where the beach is tranquil and you can spend hours with a book and hardly see a soul.

Bedrooms: All our bedrooms have fine linens and comfortable beds, the bathrooms are all white with tile floors and all new fittings in 2005. We have cupboards full of towels and sheets, duvets for the winter, sufficient extra bedding for 8 to sleep in comfort. The sofa bed in the family room is new (2011) and means we can now sleep 8 adults plus infants.
We have a cot and high chair.

Kitchen and dining: When we stay in the house we entertain our many local friends and family and can easily feed 12 on a regular basis, we have lots of pots and pans and crockery/cutlery! Unlike an average rental this is our family retreat and with 6 children it has to be on a large scale! You can park 5 or 6 cars on the drive and most guests agree there is little need or desire to go anywhere once you settle around the pool. Our only problem is we get too relaxed here and never make all the trips we intended!

                      Only 10 minutes from the fine white sands of the Gulf of Mexico and our award winning beach, http://www.cnn.com/2011/TRAVEL/05/27/best.beaches. Moments from the many fabulous restaurants of the Tamiami Trail. A 20 minute drive will take you to the boutique shopping at St. Armands Key with its fine dining and Lido beach, drive across to Longboat Key and Anna Maria Island for a true Florida Keys experience. The famous Ringling Museum and Mansion, the art galleries of Palm Avenue, the Van Wezel concert hall, orchestra and ballet, the stylish new Selby public library and the many beautiful examples of Spanish architecture dating back to the 1920's all remind us that Sarasota truly is the cultural capital of Florida. However bargain hunters and fashionistas are not forgotten with excellent shopping malls within 10 minutes drive and a huge designer discount mall at Ellenton, 30 minutes away. Wildlife enthusiasts will enjoy Jungle Gardens, or a trip to the Myakka River to see the alligators
