Remodeled Full 2Bed/2Bath Beach Cottage 10 Minutes to Siesta Key Beach

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.

                                                      A Perfect Fit!

                                                      kerry m.

                                                      We found this delightful Beach themed home to be a great fit for our needs. The owners have thoughtfully decorated this cottage with beautiful furnishings and beach theme trinkets. They have included ALL kinds of beach toys and necessities too! The house can comfortably accommodate a family of 5 or two couples with it's spacious, open layout. The Florida room provides a quiet refuge for readers and the neighborhood is quiet and safe, and located a short drive away from Sarasota's most popular beaches and outlying keys! Again... it was a perfect fit for our vacation needs!

We would love to have you return and we offer return guests a discount on their stay. Thanks again and cheers!

                                                      Herb S.

                                                      Would stay here again. Nice home and the location was close to everything.

                                                      Spectacular! Felt like home, perfectly decorated cottage. Conveniently located in nice neighborhood. Close to beaches, shopping, restaurants and anyrhing else you need. We definately hope to be back.

                                                      Joyce P.

                                                      Absolutely adorable property. From the moment we drove up the crushed seashell driveway to the minute we left we could not stop congratulating ourselves on picking this home. The online description does not begin to describe how great this property is. The decor is beachy but not overdone. Everthing you need is provide from beach chairs to a coffee maker etc. The communication with the owner made us comfortable from the beginning. We felt more like invited guests than renters. Our only regret is that we couldn’t stay longer,

                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                      Thanks so much for the review! We actually do consider our bookings to be like invited guests. Our home is your home during your stay and providing you with a beautiful space where you are happy and comfortable is important to us. Please come again - we would love to have you! Cheers.

                                                      Sweet Home is Sweet

                                                      Paula V.

                                                      This home is clean, nicely appointed, comfortable and well located. The open floor plan easily accommodates two people or a family. Even though the house is close to a main street, it is very peaceful and relaxing...and you have 10 minute access to downtown, the beach & shops.

                                                      The owners are great and happy to meet your needs. We look forward to coming back for another stay!

                                                      My brother form New York, my mother and I had such a nice relaxing time at this beautifully maintained property. It has so many little extras, is quiet and the location is just minutes from everything you would want to see in Sarasota. We will definitely be returning next year!!
