4 Bedroom in Heart of Siesta Key Village, 2 Blocks to Beach
For more reviews of our home, see vrbo 44368 (5 star Reviews.) Are you looking for a high-end experience on Siesta Key? We created this beautiful town-home, just 200 steps from Siesta Village & 2 blocks from the beach, to be our ideal home away from home. It's a beach side retreat that we are excited to escape to! Everything is new - from granite kitchens with stainless steel appliances, to the pool, to the Vera Wang Bedding. It's perfect for one large family or 2 families. The duplex offers 2 separate units, side-by-side, that share a private backyard and pool. Each has 2 bedrooms (a Master with a King Bed and 2nd bedroom with 2 twin beds, there are also new air mattresses for additional guests.) Each unit has a full bath with tub/shower combination upstairs and a half bath downstairs off the living room.
Everything has been completely remodeled - with each side having new granite kitchens, stainless steel appliances, new bathrooms, new furniture, and new a/c and duct work (great for anyone with allergies). Each unit has a large private washer/dryer room off the kitchen, and two porches - one off the living room and the other off the master bedroom - both great places to relax and enjoy a morning coffee. The duplex has a NEW small, yet lovely waterfall pool with underwater seating. And the location can’t be beat – we are in the heart of Siesta Key Village, literally 2 blocks to the beach and 200 steps to all your village restaurant and shopping needs. You may not even need a car.

I was a visitor to Siesta Key every year of my life before making Siesta Key my home. My wife and I believe in making something beautiful, and trust that the right people will come to enjoy it. We believe in the motto - if something is worth doing, it's worth doing well. Why 312 Canal Road? We love the beach and village and the best part of our location is that you can walk to everything! It's a great place to celebrate a family gathering, reunion, or special vacation. We also made this duplex into a beautiful home that we wanted to live in. I'm a graduate of Cornell's Hotel School and take hospitality very seriously. I'm very satisfied when my guests have a great stay. Please tell us about your vacation plans and if you are celebrating something special, so we can best accommodate you! We are also locals and can tell you additional details about the area that you might want to know to make your trip special... from where to get a great breakfast (the Sungarden cafe - 2 minute walk from our house) to where to find the best ice cream cones - (Big Olafs - also a 2 minute walk from our house) to where to picnic on the beach! Siesta Key is really an amazing place.
David purchased this House in 2012
Why David chose Siesta Key
3 Reasons: 1 - Unbeatable LOCATION near beach and village. It's really nice not to have to drive anywhere! 2 - We offer one of the nicest homes in Siesta Village: everything is NEW inside! 3. Last, but not least - us. We live nearby and are hands on to make your trip special. My wife has impeccable taste, so you will feel special here. My dad is a retired architect and has personally designed many of the property's features including the new front entrance. There is a good chance you will meet him as he enjoys taking care of the landscaping. Check out the pictures and feel free to inquire about any of the details. We are relatively new to VRBO, so we will add to this description as time goes on.
What makes this House unique
We could not find an upscale vacation rental when we got married on Siesta Key 10 years ago. Our home comes fully equipped with high-end finishes for the discerning traveler including: finer linens, beach towels, Vera Wang Bedding, beach chairs, new kitchens, and more. A short walk to the beach and village! Siesta Key Beach was recently voted number one in the world. While a car is helpful to see the rest of Sarasota, if you are in shape, you can walk to the beach several times every day ... and the best restaurants are even closer. At night, you can sit on the porch and hear great music coming from Siesta Key Village. It's really nice not to have to drive anywhere! We mentioned some of the new features like granite and stainless steel kitchen, which you will enjoy. We also didn't spare an expense on the mechanicals which will make your stay nicer. We have the most expensive high-end elongated toilets and also installed new carrier air-conditioning systems and duct work (great for allergy sufferers.)

Property Details / Review
We had four couples in our group. The property was great as we each had our own rooms but could share the outdoor area. 2 kitchen's allowed us to share meals when we wanted without concerns for space. The outdoor area is great and has space for a large group including a large table. Over the property was clean, well keep and met our needs. I would recommend it to anyone and we plan to book again next year.
WOW - you are a block from the only local grocery store. This is great when you need to grab something quick food, drinks etc. There are several places to eat just a few minutes walk. Nightly live entertainment at a several as well.
Several beach access points are just minutes from your door.
Extra's you didn't know you needed
We have rented several VRBO's before and we always have to purchase things like coffee filters, cooking oil etc. that add up. There was a good supply of these items and more.
True beach towels! We have brought these with us in the past as well. Just leave yours at home you will not need them.
Best bonus of all, there are coolers, wagons, beach chairs, toys etc. there. Seems like several groups before us added to the collect and left some of their favor toys as well.
David is a great local expert so ask him and he will point you in the right direct. One of the items he recommended to us which was one of the highlights of our trip was renting a boat (pontoon in our case) to get out in the bay. Definitely go to some of the sand bars and explore as you will find tons of shells.
Pubic beach - don't miss the drum circle Sunday evening if you are in town. It's a little farther walk from your location, more crowded but there is food and restroom facilities. The public beach access areas are everywhere and the beach is very long. We were there in early Feb but I found it odd that they only restrooms where at the public beach. So if you have kids or the need to use the restroom you would either need to walk back to the property or down to the public beach. This might change with portable units as crowds increase but plan accordingly.
Great property, fantastic location! We had a large group and rented both units. They were beautiful, very clean and well supplied. David was very helpful and responsive. Would definitely return!
Great House, Great Host!
We just got back from our stay in Siesta Key. David is such a wonderful host, as everyone says. All of his recommendations were spot on & great.
We were 2 families traveling with 5 kids total all between age 2-6. The house was great- clean & comfortable & easy to be in with young kids. Monitors work between the 2 units, so we were able to put the kids to be & all the adults could hang out in 1 unit & still hear the kids. The little pool was perfect for them, and the location is great. It's so close to town & just a short walk from the beach. We used the free trolley & local taxi's every day. The trolley will stop anywhere along the route if you flag it down, which is different than what it says on their website- and it drive right past the house. We also hired chef Mike at David's suggestion to pre-cook a few meals for us & it worked out great. They were delicious, hearty, & easy to re-heat. The grocery store in town has almost everything you'd need, but the prices are a bit high (we're from NYC & I'd say they're equivalent to here.) Everything was wonderful. Thanks David!
Location! Location! Location!
Did I say location? A short block from the heart of town, you are near the restaurants, a really nice market and a liquor store and an easy walk to the fantastic, white beach of Siesta Key. I now see why some people said they never used their cars. A perfect place for a large group who want to be together, but giving each other some room. David, the owner, was very friendly and helpful and took quick action on a small problem.
So great to hear from you! Thank you for pointing out our fantastic location and that our home is great for large groups. I enjoyed getting to know you and Rose and thank you for such a nice review! I hope to see you back next year! Don't hesitate to contact me directly if I may be of assistance in planning your trip.
An Amazing Place @ At An Amazing Location
Finding a place on Siesta Key that can sleep 8 people, host a small get together and serve as a central hub for a wedding week without blowing up the budget is a major challenge and one we were tasked with for our wedding in June 2017. We were very fortunate to find this location was available for the week we needed it. We reached out to David to discuss our needs and he responded with a phone call. In today’s Text Message and Email world, that was very refreshing and reassuring. David was not only accommodating and hospitable to our needs, he was excited for our pending wedding.
David was there to greet us upon our arrival with a bottle of wine as a wedding gift. We had only met the man 3 minutes prior. The residence itself was clean and equipped with everything we needed for our week, including a beach wagon and beach toys. The house location is perfect. It’s an easy walk to the Village and beach but tucked away in a spot to be removed from the bustle of the weekend’s nightlife.
David’s hospitality was amazing, he checked in on us regularly and was very responsive if we had questions about the property or about Siesta Key including recommendations on the best places for coffee, breakfast, lunch and dinner. Every recommendation was spot on.
We highly recommend this place and look forward to staying there again in the near future.
Just back from another great visit to Siesta Key. This was the second time we stayed in David's house on Canal road and I just wanted to say it was another great visit. The house is located within walking distance of everything but tucked away on a quiet street. Its a great place to relax and enjoy both the Siesta Key Village and Beach. If you go be sure to try out the owners restaurant suggestions as they were excellent.
Thanks so much for the great review and mentioning our best of Siesta Key list. We are always on the lookout for a great new restaurant to share with you. For future stays, we also now have a wonderful chef that works with our guests, too. He can prepare a meal for you in-house or drop off several meals for your stay. Thanks again and I look forward to seeing you back on the Key soon!
