This newly renovated studio cottage is on canal water and a casual walk to famous USA #1 Siesta Beach. It comfortably accommodates two guests with a futon option for a third. Mermaid's Retreat is the perfect location for your Florida Vacation. You start with our complimentary RumRunner Island cocktail welcome drink. Then take a 5 minute walk to the sugar sand beach at the end of the street; a 10 minute walk gets you to Siesta Village restaurants, nightlife or groceries. (Door-to-door free rides available as well.) The retreat includes more than 800 sq. ft. of space, with 550 sq. ft. air-conditioned and 250 sq. ft. outdoor private garden patio (perfect for sipping your morning coffee). It has a private entrance and is attached to the landlord-occupied main house for prompt response should a need arise. The fully furnished cottage features a living room with dining area, bedroom with queen bed, bathroom with washer/dryer and kitchen. Rental includes all linens, equipped kitchen with two burner countertop stove and microwave, flat screen TV, cable, WiFi, all utilities and single car parking. But you may not need a car! A newly instituted "free" SIESTA BREEZE TROLLY travels continuously morning to night the length of the Key and UBER rides to downtown Sarasota (for even more restaurants, opera, theater, symphony...) average under $15. There are public bus stops at the top of our street as well. Ours has a private, residential feel (not spring break party lodging) perfect for the discerning traveler. We are confident the Mermaid's Retreat will exceed expectation in its price range. We welcome you to check us out!

What makes this Cottage unique
Don't be fooled by "beach accommodations" on Siesta Key - many of these properties are on the mainland. We are located ON Siesta Key, a 5-7 minute walk to the world famous white sand. No need to hassle with parking for the beach - walk or rent a bike! We are also close to shopping, dining, groceries and live music!
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Amy and Zolton (hosts) were lovely to work with. The cottage was the perfect size and the location was fabulous!
Thanks, Madison. You also were a wonderful guest. We are so proud of our newly offered cottage and it's ideal location just a walk to Siesta No. 1 Beach in the USA. Each of our guests so far have echoed your experience, for which we are most thankful.
The Mermaids Retreat is very convenient to all Siesta Key has to offer.
The property was clean and had all the comforts of home. Zolton and Amy (hosts) were very easy to work with throughout my visit.
It was our pleasure to meet you and host you. Good luck on your search and please know you and Otis would be welcomed back always.
The perfect retreat!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Mermaid's Retreat. Amy and Zoltan were kind, attentive, and generous hosts. They made us feel completely welcome and comfortable. The property is in a lovely, quiet residential neighborhood, close to the beach and to the village. We loved the private patio, surrounded by greenery -- a treat all around!
So great to have you as our guests for the month. Wish you could stay longer. Special thanks to Jill for your wonderful cottage illustration, which can be viewed as one of our photos which describe the mermaid's retreat (could not import photo here, sorry).
The Mermaid's Retreat
My parents stayed at The Mermaid's retreat this past winter and would like to thank you for your hospitality. You made them feel very welcome. They enjoyed walking down the street to Siesta Key beach just north of the newly renovated pavilion and also down to the village for the market and quaint shops & restaurants. Location, Location, Location--in a well cared for quiet residential area away from most of the short stay rentals. Although this in-law suite is attached to the landlord's home, they had their own entry and privacy. They are already looking forward to coming back again next year!
