Property description

Enjoy peaceful waterfront relaxation in "The Carriage House". Blissfully set on Sarasota Bay, this luxury bay studio cottage is as seaside chic as they come, with unspoiled bay views of mangrove islands and Longboat Pass Bridge. The Carriage House overlooks Sarasota Bay and is centered on a pool courtyard. Palm trees, wild mangrove trees, a coastal-style courtyard and hibiscus are just some of the features of this idyllic setting. It promises a truly unique getaway.

This studio is the entire second floor of the building and one large open, bright sun filled room. There are vaulted ceilings, travertine floors, and granite countertops throughout. For those who want to sleep in, there are custom room darkening drapes to keep the light out. The solar heated lightly chlorinated pool separates it from the main house. It features a coastal cottage kitchen and dining area with window seat. Enjoy the expansive view while relaxing on the leather couch in front of the 42' flat screen HD TV. Just steps away from the Queen size Murphy bed is your large private balcony overlooking the pool and with breathtaking views of Sarasota Bay. Relax in the Adirondack chairs on the deck while sipping your morning coffee and basking in the Florida sunshine. The sunny outdoor areas include a covered dining area with room for four to gather for a meal, a brick patio with casual love seat and two chairs and lounge chairs, all poolside.

We live on the property and constantly maintain our home. The Carriage House is detached and separated from the main house by the pool and courtyard. Though we usually greet you upon arrival and answer any questions, you can enjoy your privacy.

This non-smoking and no pets Key West style studio is a private paradise and yet centrally located.

Shopping, beaches, great restaurants and fresh seafood are minutes away. Visit historic Cortez fishing village, Longboat Key, and Anna Maria Island which are also just minutes away. St. Armand's Circle and Sarasota are also easily accessible.

Instant access to water activities such as fishing and kayaking are available to guests. Just sit by the water's edge and look for dolphins and manatees or read a book. Kayaks can be launched directly from the property!

Please be sure to read some of our traveler reviews from our previous guests. January through March of 2017 are still available.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: I am an artist and native Floridian and I met my husband Joe (from New Jersey) while in college in Tampa. We found the local beaches to be a well kept secret 25 years ago. As founders of a worldwide ministry called Hearts Afire, we have chosen to share God's blessing of our location with others. We are lovers of 5 star travel and mission trips in developing countries. Quite a contrast but we live our life with an adventurous spirit!

Why the Owner Chose Bradenton, FL, USA:
This area is total enchantment. The wildlife-spotting opportunities all around this property are vast; keep eyes peeled for osprey, dolphins, great white egrets, spoonbills and the beautiful kingfisher. You might even be blessed enough to spot the shy manatees having breakfast in the sea grasses! This neighborhood is the best kept secret on Sarasota Bay. We look out to Longboat Pass Bridge and mangrove islands. The beach is just a few miles and filled with white sand. If we were to search the whole world for the perfect place, this would be it.

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
We personally manage this unique property to high standards. The property looks out to a nature preserve island and a pristine Florida wildlife habitat. You have a view from your deck of Longboat Pass bridge and many islands. What we like most about this property is the wide variety of wildlife like roseate spoonbills to the white pelicans that migrate here for the winter. Early morning kayaking on the bay, relaxing with a cup of coffee on the deck with long range bay views, and soaking in the sun in the lounge chairs is true Florida living. Or just curling up with a good book on the window seat. When you are ready to venture out the beach is just 2 miles and many great places to eat.
