Interaction with Guests
I meet and greet all my guests upon their arrival.
Located in the little "south village" we are within easy walking distance to a grocery store, shops, restaurants, Tiki Bar, ice-cream shop, 7-11, drugstore, and right across the street is a bike and kayak rental shop!
Jonny's Free Beach Rides is one of the many shuttle services on Siesta Key operating day and night, transporting you anywhere on the island.
A car isn't necessary, but you do have one designated parking spot.
Other Things to Note
Note: New and improved air conditioner (July 2015). More powerful, yet quieter than previous a/c.
2 single size airbeds available (and linens, of course) if you'd prefer to use those instead of the sleeper sofa for children or teens.
No smoking. No pets.
Ebb Tide Cottage #2 is exactly as it looks in the pictures. Small, Cozy and quaint. For us, it was just perfect! It was comfortable, clean and nicely decorated. The outside area is set up nicely with a beautiful landscaping to make you feel like you are in a small garden. It is fully equipped with everything you will need for a vacation, including comfy chairs for the beach, umbrella and even toys for the kids. Our oldest child was traveling, so it was only my husband and I and our two smaller children (9 & 7) and we fit just about right. Kids slept in sofa bed and we slept in room. The beach is about a three minutes walk away and the pool is perfect! Even though the pool is shared by many vacation rentals, we usually had it all to ourselves. Ebb Tide is located right across from a few restaurants and small shops. My husband and my daughter would go every morning to the German bakery to buy freshly made bread. This was our first time visiting Siesta Key and the beach is amazing. I am from the tropics and the water here is like no other. The sunsets are breathtaking. If you are active and would like to try something new, we recommend the "Tree Umph!"- an amazing tree climbing/ obstacle course place in Sarasota. Overall, a great vacation stay at Ebb Tide #2!!!
Sue met us on the property at our arranged time and the property itself was true to the listing. We enjoyed our time on Siesta Key and the homey condo Sue provided. We had easy access to the beach, pool and many local shops all within easy walking distance. Thanks again Sue!!!
Sue was an amazing host! So helpful to answer any of our questions and the condo was perfect! It had all the amenities we could ask for! The location was amazing and just a short walk down to the beach or pool! Loved staying on Siesta Key, had the best and most relaxing vacation! I would recommend to anyone to stay at one of Sue's condos!

Sue was a lovely welcoming host! Her condo was exactly as described. My daughter and I had a wonderful time and did not want to leave! Thank you Sue!
Sue's attention to detail made us feel very comfortable. The beach and pool are close and lovely.
The neighborhood is very convenient.
We had a really good time staying at Sue's on Siesta Key. We visited the area before but this was our first time staying on Siesta Key. The area was quiet and peaceful, but close enough to anything. Even though it was a bit chilly when we were there, it was great to be a very short walk to the beautiful beach (& to be provided beach chairs, umbrellas, all you need for the beach!). Sue's place is a full one bedroom, exactly how was listed, and the outdoor patio area was perfect for grilling. Sue had wonderful suggestions for places to eat on Siesta Key, including a very closeby fish market/restaurant. We appreciated her helpfulness and her place was a very nice getaway for us!
Amazing rental in a beautiful location. Can't wait to go back.

About the Host, Sue
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 great 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 villas, trying to get everything wonderfully right for our future guests - and we hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did.
