My name is Chris Hicklin. I was born in Kansas City, Missouri and was raised in New York State. I attended Kennesaw University and Emery University in Atlanta. I Graduated Cum Laude from Life University in Marietta Georgia and have been a practicing full time practicing Chiropractor at 3220 Clark Road, Sarasota, Florida since 1981. I have two wonderful children, a son and daughter, both grown and out on their own. I purchased this home in 1978 and have enjoyed all of the fine people I have met through their vacations here. I am a photographer as well, a small portion of my work can be seen at http://chicklinphotography.com/index.html. I have a cat named Arizona who roams the property and keeps an eye on things. I live next door to the beach house and have enjoyed sharing this property with an amazing group of people from corporate COE's to airline pilots to fine artists to international diplomats...just about every walk of life imaginable. The wonderful relationships I have made through the sharing of this unique property has enrichened our lives. Life by the Gulf of Mexico on Siesta Key is amazing... just breathtaking, please come enjoy this old house and see for yourself.

Chris Hicklin purchased this house in 1998

I come from a family with close ties to Southwest Florida and throughout my early years visited relatives in the area every summer while I was in school. On my 16th birthday, still living in New York but spending the summer in Florida I announced that I would move to Florida when I completed my studies. 3 months after taking my degree at Life College I moved to Sarasota with my new wife and started our family here. I purchased the beach house from old friends, he a retired World War 11 United States Navy Captain and she a writer. I could think of no better place to raise our children and to spend my life, it has been a dream. Living on this barrier Island...Siesta Key... is wonderful.

The house sits on sandy seaside bluff, on a dead end street, at the end of a wooded 300 foot driveway, a mere 50 feet from the sea. The elevation is without parallel, the ground floor elevation is 14 feet above sea level which affords it a one of a kind perspective on seaside living. The property is very private, truly a one of a kind tropical paradise.

Home away from home - only better!!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you Chris!! This house is a hidden gem. I’m so thankful that we found it. The house is well represented in the pictures, everything was just as it was shown. The house itself is equipped with just about everything you could possibly need including, small crockpot, blender, coffee makers and plenty of cookware. The master bedroom is amazing, the view is spectacular and having the bathroom was a plus! The house was extremely comfortable, as soon as we walked in we felt like we were home and we were instantly in vacation mode.

We spent our time at the house on the deck overlooking the ocean. The view is amazing, coffee in the morning watching the dolphins swim by and playing, does it get any better? We had two teenage boys with us and they spent their time fishing. (Invest in a reel at one of the local shops or an entire pole setup for that matter and a fishing licensing - you won't be sorry!) The boys were out there for hours on end.

The house was super convenient, there’s a convenience store right down the street, a pizza shop, beach access and Captain Curt’s and the Sniki Tiki all within walking distance. This house is amazing.

Chris, thank you so much for your hospitality. We can’t wait to visit again!

Better than you can imagine!

"We arrived at the house which exceeded our expectations. The home itself is comfortable, clean and well-appointed. Everything you need is there, just show up. The location was spectacular, overlooking the Gulf of Mexico with our own beach at the foot of a stairway. A beautiful gazebo allowed us to enjoy the view on both sunny and drizzly days. Our morning were spent watching birds feed and dolphins play. Open the window and let the sound of the ocean, hitting shallow rock soothe your soul. Within walking distance are shops, restaurants, a local bar with live music, a grocery store and beautifual Siesta Key Beach. leave the car in the driveway and walk or bike everywhere.
Our host, Chris, was gracious and accomodating. Thank you Chris - you are the best! We will see you soon. All in all, this is a perfect vacation home. Highly recommend."

Owner's Response: Thanks K, it was so kind of you to write about White Beach Fruit Company. This beach house is much more than a place to stay, it is a comfortable private home stocked with all of the comforts of home set just feet from the Gulf of Mexico. This place is totally private yet close to everything, a real treasure! I hope you will come back and visit us soon. Chris Hicklin

Our south Siesta location is convenient to Crescent Beach, Siesta Beach and Turtle beaches. Just a quick hop over the bridge to the mainland, and you are on highway 41.

Within a 15 minute drive are Sarasota Square Mall, Southgate Mall, the shops of Gulf Gate, and beautiful downtown Sarasota's arts and cultural activities. Just across the bridge from downtown is the lovely shopping and dining experience of St. Armands Circle.

It's a quick drive out Clark Road to the interstate, the activities of Tampa, Orlando and points south are all within an easy few hours trip.
