About Brett Cameron Blair

I am an author of children's books. I am married with a daughter and two boys who are active in the Florida tennis community. They are highly ranked junior players and compete at a national level. The tennis court in the photo separates our two homes. We are happy to help our guest at any level whether that involves assuring total privacy, setting up tennis lessons or pointing out the great sites and activities of our wonderful city.

Brett Cameron Blair purchased this House in 2012

Why Brett Cameron Blair chose Siesta Key

Our guest house is a 2100 sq. ft. mid-century modern home built in 1966 and is old Florida to a tee. No expense was spared when we updated this home in 2012. You will have have access both to Sarasota city life as well as island access to the Siesta Key village and beach. Our neighborhood is quiet and set apart from the loud strip that hugs the beach 4 miles down the road.

What makes this House unique

Private use of your own pool, tennis court, basketball goal, dock, kayaks and bay.

                                                              Great place! Wonderful people Brett, Cyndi and boys. Loved the accommodations and location.

                                                              Best of Siesta Key and Sarasota!

                                                              The property is perfectly located as you enter Siesta Key from Sarasota. This makes it easy to access the beaches or the mainland. We were welcomed by the owner upon arrival which was about midnight due to travel issues. Often, pictures overstate the accommodations, that was not the case here. The home is roomier than the pics suggested and nicer. The home is perfect for 4 people, probably 6 max however. The access to the docks and the water is excellent for fishing or just watching marine life in general. We will definitely consider this home for a future stay and appreciate the hospitality the owners showed us!

                                                              Perfect Christmas trip to Siesta Key

                                                              Thank you Brett,

                                                              Your guest house worked out perfectly for us, your hospitality is unmatched. The welcome package kept us going for several days. The house is very nicely furnished and can't think of anything else we would need. Hopefully next time we visit, we will have time for the kayaks and some fishing on the dock!

                                                              In the truest sense of the word “sublime” was my daughter and my visit to Brett and Cyndi’s Cottage. From the location and quality of the home, and the provided accoutrements, to the hospitality Brett and Cyndi showed toward their guests, our visit was from 11/04/17 to 11/08/17, my daughter and I had a memory making experience. Trust that, outside not being able to predict the weather, Brett and Cyndi have provided and, otherwise will help in any way possible to assist in providing, what their guests require to have the respite or adventure they came looking for. Looking forward to returning. Thank you..

                                                              Jeanne and her daughter were wonderful guest. They treated property as if it were their own home and left the place as they found it. We would love to have them back any time.
