                      Car: Not Necessary

                      Why is our Siesta Key Beach often voted #1 in the USA by the prestigious Dr. Beach? Our Caribbean blue water and (litterly) baby powder soft, white sand found on our beaches is like no other in the continential USA! Dubbed the 'Cultural Coast', you can enjoy a vast mixture of live entertainment, from the refined Ballet, Opera and Symphony, to the more funky Comedy Clubs or Drag Queen Bingo! The Downtown area is the hub of the action and our cottages are located just a few, quiet blocks away from everything!

                       

                      Owner info

                      About the owner: My husband Jeff and I moved to Sarasota 5 years ago. Our plan was to retire here after working and raising a family in Washington DC/Northern VA area.

                      Why the Owner Chose Laurel Park:
                      WE loved Sarasota from the moment we saw it and knew this was the place we had been searching for. We opted to live in Laurel Park (where all 5 of our vacation cottage rentals are too) because we enjoy walking our dogs to restaurants, cafes and the waterfront Bay Park. WE eno riding our bikes to the Opera! The style is quaint and charming. I'm very proud to offer 5 charming vacation cottages in our neighborhood so our guests can experience the same lifestyle! We believe we are doing a great job because many of our guests have decided to purchase homes in our area while they were here!

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Our area is VERY unique. Our quests are looking for something more than just the beach and golf. Although those things are just a few minutes away, our location gives you much more! All 5 of our charming vacation cottages are located in Laurel Park (voted the #1 neighborhood in Sarasota). Our vacationers are within walking distance to all the action and the waterfront harbor. Yet far enough away to sit our your patio and not here a thing! We are just 2 blocks from everything downtown/HArbor so your can walk to it all!
