About the Property
1 bedroom, 1 bath, sleeps 2, full kitchen, washer & dryer, private pool
Rent my one-bedroom, one-bath completely furnished guest cottage and feel instantly at home. Enjoy waking up to the sounds of tropical birds. Read the Sunday paper over a cup of coffee or tea in the sunny private courtyard. Take a morning walk down to the water and watch the fish jump.
The 750 square foot cottage is perfect for the single traveler or snowbird couple. There are no stairs to climb or elevators to take. Park your car(s) in the private guest drive.
This is a completely non-smoking property. Smoking inside or out is NOT allowed.
Lots of things available for use: beach chairs, beach umbrella, gas grill, charcoal grill, pool floats, lawn furniture, beach towels, coolers. If there's something special you need, just ask your neighbor (Me!) and I'll see what I can do.
I'm in the customer service / dream vacation business, so I've tried to think of all the little things that will make you want to come back to stay year after year after year.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.
Paying with a credit card on VRBO protects your payment for up to $10,000 against listing fraud. We recommend completing your booking on VRBO.Learn more

I love my neighborhood of 1920's Spanish homes and know you will too! Spend a month, more or less in my much-loved guest cottage in the trees and enjoy all the area has to offer.
Bring your kayaks or jet ski and launch from the community boat ramp at the end of the canopy street. Bring bikes and travel the quiet streets surrounding your home away from home. Bring your tennis racquets and challenge me to a match at the nearby public tennis courts. Enjoy swimming in the private saltwater pool, grilling out and soaking in the Old Florida lifestyle.
My fairytale guest cottage is just minutes from Sarasota Square Shopping Mall, Target, Walmart and several dining choices. Best of all, you'll be just 10 minutes from Siesta Key...15 from the public beach parking lot if you drive slowly...wonderfully.close to all the tourist hot spots, yet far enough away to avoid the tourist noise and traffic,
The cottage is far enough from the main house to provide maximum privacy, yet close enough to provide you with a great neighbor willing to act as your on-site concierge, recommending places to go and things to see. If you love to garden, you can dig and plant in the large yard. Let this girl from small-town Iowa share her piece of Florida paradise with you.
NOTE: THIS IS A COMPLETELY NON-SMOKING PROPERTY. NO SMOKING INSIDE OR OUT, BY RENTERS OR THEIR GUESTS.
