Imagine being nestled in a key west style unit which is fully furnished turn key just a few minutes walk to pristine Siesta key beach and the hopping Siesta key village. The Surf Shack has its own unique entrance through the driveway and privacy fence. The cottage has just been updated with a new kitchen, granite countertops, new microwave, vanity, painted inside and out, and new gas grill. The cottage has everything you need to enjoy yourself. Full kitchen, bath with fiberglass shower, outside hot and cold shower when you come back from the beach. Wall air conditioner, wall fan, stacked washer/dryer, FRONTIER Fios High definition TV and wireless internet. I also have Apple TV which you can stream your own NETFLIX and other venues. NEW TO SIESTA KEY ARE FREE TROLLYS THAT RUN FROM THE VILLAGE TO THE SOUTH END OF THE KEY.
Enjoy my private dock to fish, crab, or launch a kayak if you like. At sunset, stroll up to the beach to watch the amazing sunsets every night. Go enjoy a huge cone at Big Olafs or oysters and a beer at Siesta Key Oyster Bar. My favorite is the clam chowder at Captain Curts near the south bridge... it is awsome. There are lots of great restaurants and shops all over the village. They are all just a short walk or quick ride by bike.
There is outdoor patio furniture and a gas grill all under a huge oak tree. This is island living at its best. Note.

I loved the property. Perfect location and the accommodations were wonderful.
Jim is an attentive and responsible owner who provided a home which was in great condition and met all my needs. He made my trip stress free and totally enjoyable.
We had a great time in this surf shack. Super cozy and great walking distance from downtown Siesta. We had so much fun.
The shack is small but super comfortable. Kitchen is brand new and it has a washer and dryer in there that came in very handy.
We had a wonderful time and would recomemend this to friends and family!
Wonderful anniversary getaway!
Although my husband and I did not get to stay at the Surf Shack, we had a wonderful stay. Mr. Bucci notified us prior to arrival that there was some work that needed to be done after the hurricane had come through. He offered to allow us to stay in the main house and we were thoroughly impressed. The location of the property was perfect. We were close enough to walk to all the shops, restaurants and the beach but yet far enough away from all of the hustle and bustle. Mr. Bucci was beyond accommodating and extremely friendly, we were impressed with his hospitality. The house was perfect, the location was perfect and the all the amenities were perfect. We will definitely be renting from him again. Thanks Jim for a wonderful anniversary vacation for my husband and I.
The surf shack was just the right size for me & my husband, as a studio. It was located PERFECTLY; close to town -shopping, happy hour drinks & all the FUN stuff to do; and close to the beach. With all the conveniences so close, we had the option of staying in & cooking ourselves or going out; every single nite. There was privacy here that hotels don't offer, and a very friendly neighborhood - dogs included! Very laid back area with lots to do & see. We have rented with vrbo multiple times now & Jim Bucci @ Siesta Key is THE BEST! Very responsive, helpful info to get you wherever you want & he is right on top of any problems : )) The small washer/dryer combo came in REAL handy too! Siesta Key has trolleys if you don't have a car & golf carts that work on TIPS only to get you around.. no rental car needed! Multiple keys, multiple beach accesses & very friendly area. No need to worry about crime here! Very nice get away.
Perfect Siesta Getaway
My husband and I stayed in the Surf Shack and loved it! Jim was very helpful and friendly. It's within walking distance to the beach and village, but has parking of its own if you take your car further into town so you never have to worry about finding a spot. The Shack is all you need for a nice, quiet place to rest between adventures on the Keys. We will certainly be back and will be renting from Jim in the future!
I would definitely stay here again!!
I definitely recommend the surf shack!! It literally had everything we needed and more. Jim the owner was an absolute joy to work with!! After first booking through booking.com then cancelling after we found the surf shack through homeaway we found out how our vacation planning should have felt. Easy!! I seriously can't say enough.
Laurie, you are welcome here anytime. Next time invite more family and stay in the Island Breeze and the Surf Shack together. Have a big family outing ... I'm glad you had a pleasant stay...JIM
