The Bikini Top Cottage is on an alley way that leads directly to the kayak and boat launch. Walk down to view the sunrise coffee in hand with the Sailboat moorings and end your day at The Mar Vista restaurant. Make sure you walk out on the dock and look in the water around the sunken lights.
Across from The Village is the white sandy beach. Meander down the boardwalk and the beach opens up for miles of tranquil shoreline. The tip of the island feels more like you've discovered your own private island. With old trees laying in the water and no structures in site you can float out on the turquoise sandbar. Good spot to catch fish. Watch manatees and dolphins swim and dream of what this place was like before condos.
The cottages have an old time charm. Built in the 30's as apart of The Whitney Estate. After a hurricane washed away the main home the cottages where relocated for safer ground. Sturdy little 440 sq. ft. Homes. Handmade stone veneer clad the outside of the structure. Inside you will find a comfortable living space. One Queen size bed in the bedroom and Queen size fold out coach in main living room. Internet cable of course. Nice porch and tropical landscaping.
Once you're here you don't need to go very far to fill the day with a genuine Florida adventure. All you really need to do is allow the nature to come to you.
If you're into kayaking or paddle boarding this is a perfect launch pad. With in seconds on the water you will be surrounded by an array of activity. This is the destination boats come. In the Sarasota flats there are a string of islands called the sister keys. Sandbars sea grass and secret Channels hold tons of life.
