About this listing
This charming, cottage-style condo offers all you need for a fun and relaxing vacation at the beach. The white sands of Siesta Key are just 3 minute walk from the cottage door. So is our lovely pool! Ideal for a couple, but sleeps up to four.
Cottage #1 is a bright, cheerful condo on Siesta Key. It's a single-story, 1 bedroom, fully equipped unit with a garden patio out the back door. Everything is included from wireless internet to the beach towels. And everything is top quality.
This cottage is ideal for a couple or a couple with a child. In addition to the queen-size bed in the bedroom, there is a full- size, sleeper sofa in the living room.
Our lovely, community pool and our private, gated access to the beach are literally a 3 minute walk from the villa door. We are located on the gulf side of Midnight Pass Road, just south of Stickney Point Bridge.
Restaurants, beach shops, a tiki bar, and even a fully stocked grocery store are within easy walking distance. There's a bike and kayak rental shop right across the street! And Jonny's Free Beach Rides will take you to the lively Siesta Key Village for more restaurant choices, shops and live entertainment. It's all right here: Lots of action or quiet beach walks with gorgeous sunsets!
Included in the quoted rate is 12% tax required by Sarasota county and FL state.
-Keyed access to our lovely, heated, "slightly salt-water" pool. Open daily 9AM - 10PM.
-Coded gate access to beautiful, Crescent Beach on Siesta Key.
Both the pool and the beach access gate are just a 3 minute walk from the village door - about 300 yards.
Interaction with Guests
I meet and greet all my guests.
Cottage #1 is located on Siesta Key in the "little south village" with shops, restaurants, and a grocery store within easy walking distance. Check-out the homemade ice-cream at Orange Octopus... or enjoy a tropical drink at the Tiki Bar!
You don't need a car on Siesta Key. Jonny's Free Beach Rides is one of the many beach shuttle services that will take you anywhere on the island.
But if you do have a car, your parking spot is right outside your front door.
Other Things to Note
Note: New and improved air conditioner (July 2015). More powerful, yet quieter than previous a/c. This one has a remote control, too.
Full-size sleeper sofa, or 2 single size airbeds & linens available for children and teens if you'd prefer that instead of using the sleeper sofa.
Check in is 3 PM (with some flexibility on that) and check-out is 11 AM.
No pets, no smoking.
Originally from Canada (and vacationing on Siesta Key since I was a young child, lucky enough to have family who owned beach houses here) I moved here permanently in 2009, to join my husband, Jim, whom I met on the same beach a few years earlier! I've thoroughly enjoyed the unexpected transition from college prof to vacation property owner/manager, and can't say I miss the snow and ice.
We have three cottage-style condos, side-by-side, single-story, each with an inviting garden patio right outside the back door. It's just a 2 or 3 minute walk from the villa door to our lovely, salt-water pool and our private, gated beach access. We lived in Villa #1 for ten months and loved everything about the relaxed, beach lifestyle. It was great fun remodeling the three cottages trying to get everything wonderfully right for our future guests - and we hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did.
