This totally renovated adorable beach cottage is located less than 10 minutes from Siesta Key. Siesta Key is a beach destination highlighted on many travel lists as one of the top 10 beaches in the U.S.A.
Our 1950's Florida beach cottage underwent a complete renovation in the summer of 2016. It has been thoughtfully updated and tastefully decorated by professionals to offer a dream house effect allowing our guests to feel on vacation yet still as if they are right at home. This 2 bedroom 2 bathroom cottage house can accommodate a maximum of 5 guests. While there is plenty of sleeping, sitting and relaxing space in this spacious open concept floor plan, our 5 person maximum is to ensure our guest's experience is that of absolute comfort. As owners, we are passionate about our home and will always remain closely engaged with the upkeep of our property and the satisfaction of our guests.
The green, canopied spacious front yard was recently covered with 5000 lbs of crushed sea shells and is graced with the addition of newly planted tropical trees giving it the feel of a botanical garden. Extra rooms such as the screened furnished patio and large Florida Room make it easy for everyone to have their own quiet private space. Guests may also easily find communion with this open floor plan, while lounging in the living room, snacking at the dining table or cooking in the kitchen. We offer cable with a wide variety of channels and FREE WIFI. Our convenient location, duly named Shade Avenue, is a serene respite after a long day and is exactly suited for the discerning traveler.
We are also pleased to announce: WE ARE DOG FRIENDLY! We love our furry animal friends and are responsible for a few of our own; however we only allow WELL-BEHAVED dogs. Our pet policies are straight forward and cater to owners of clean well-behaved pooches. We insist the pet policies be reviewed before booking. There is NO EXTRA CHARGE FOR DOGS and we have a maximum limit of 2 dogs at any given time. While there are plenty of fresh linens and towels available at the house, we have designated dog towels too. Please keep your dogs off of the furniture and leashed when outside of the house at all times. Guests are required to inform us about their pets before booking and any other pets that are visiting the property during their stay. We highly recommend dog beach (http://www.exploringsarasota.org/dog-parks.html) and insist that your furry friend take a thorough rinse with fresh water and a good drying after every swim in the ocean. A washer and dryer is available in the house which makes for light packing and more relaxing time.
The private cottage is nestled on a shaded street just 10 minutes from Siesta Key beach and downtown Sarasota. You will find a wide variety of shops, restaurants and nightlife downtown, on Siesta Key and Lido Key. The newly redone Westfield Mall and the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall (one of the top performing arts centers in the US) are both just down the road and will keep you out and about. We also happily provide our guests with recommendations of some of our favorite places to dine in this fresh seafood paradise which continues to show increased culinary diversity.
Within reasonable driving distance for day adventures you will find Clearwater, St.Petersburg, Turtle Beach and Anna Maria Island and the enumerable beaches and places of interests that dot the Gulf Coast. Our home is the ideal place to set your roots and flip flops and feel right at home while either on a long-term vacation or on a short-term getaway.
