(SIESTA KEY) LA DOLCE VITA-IMMACULATE GROUND FLOOR UNIT W/BEACH/PIER ACCESS

Siesta Key Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Sofabed, 1 Bath ensuite (best suited to 2 people)

SIESTA KEY BEACH VOTED NUMBER 1 IN US 2011 - DR. BEACH!

Welcome to La Dolce Vita - a beautiful, fully-equipped, and furnished, ground-floor Condominium on Siesta Key, a barrier island in the Gulf of Mexico in Sarasota, Florida. See why we have renters who return year after year... View a photo slide or virtual tour of the unit and grounds by scrolling down.

Our clean, comfortable, centrally heated and air-conditioned condominium is best suited to 2 people as the washroom is ensuite. The unit features stunning Mexican tile floors, a lovely and functional galley kitchen which is fully equipped for your culinary delight too. The 3-piece bathroom has been beautifully renovated. All linens are included: sheets, towels, beach towels and chairs etc. There are two digital cable televisions; one VCR/DVD, one DVR; a stereo with CD/Cassette player, Ipod speaker dock/radio and wireless internet access. Community washer and dryer just outside your door. At your home away from home, you also have the use of a large patio, lanai and barbecue.

La Dolce Vita is located at Sandy Cove 3, a 16 unit condo situated on a stunning Gulf front property (shared with three other associations). Many residents live here year round so the pride of ownership is evident - this is no 'revolving door' hotel or motel. This is why short term rentals are not permitted.

Take a leisurely two minute walk down an idyllic tree and flower lined private roadway and enjoy birds singing along the way. When you get to the end you will see our lovely original Old Florida 'Homestead' - legend has it that it was originally owned by the 'Buster Brown' shoe family. It is now used as a Clubhouse for social get-togethers, potlucks and parties. This charming wood sided dwelling overlooks a huge lawn, the Gulf of Mexico, a private fishing pier, and the beach. It is breathtaking to say the least.

Back at home, simply walk out of your door and plunge into the pool (exclusive to Sandy 3) or lounge pool side (and most of the time you will have it all to yourself!). The sun concentrates between the 2 buildings and it is a lovely and warm place to read or snooze. Later on, you can go to the public beach for a long walk or bike ride and to enjoy the sunsets, the colours of which are beyond compare!

Siesta Key is a spectacular island with something for everyone. Cross one of two bridges to the island and vive la différence! Lazy days and relaxation are the norm here! For those looking for some peace and quiet, you've got it; for those who love to fish and swim in the Gulf, you've come to the right place. You can indulge in many cultural events (Sarasota is the cultural capital of Florida) or sporting activities such as bike riding, walking, snorkeling, scuba diving, swimming, surfing... Native Drum Circle on Sundays at dusk. And but of course, let's not forget golf! Indeed, you can find everything here!

The island has whatever you need without being 'too commercial'. A five-minute walk to Siesta Key Village north and you will find shopping, banking, restaurants, cafés, massage therapy, aesthetics, souvenirs, and more. Bike riding is easy here - drivers aren't in a hurry to get anywhere because no one wants to leave! Siesta Key has a long fabulous stretch of white sand beach, one of the ten best in the US, designated as having the 'world's whitest, finest sand!' Even in the heat of the day, the 'icing sugar' composition of the sand never burns the bottom of your feet! How is that possible? No exaggeration here - there is natural beauty here no matter where you look. Have a peek at la Dolce Vita @ Sandy Cove from the comfort of your couch

To discover more about the Island and its amenities Google 'Simply Siesta Key.'

Payment accepted through PayPal (add 2.9%) or the old fashioned way if there's enough lead time in United States or Canadian Dollars (appropriate exchange added). Rates are based on maximum 2 persons and include everything except a refundable $500 damage/extraordinary cleaning deposit. Please note because Sandy Cove is a private residence a rental agreement with application must be completed.

In season rentals (January-April), limited to 3 month stays minimum. If by July a 3 month rental has not been arranged we will accept shorter stays 1 or 2 months. Thank you.

This was the best vacation my wife and i have ever had. A whole month, 100 yds from the beach, 100 yds from Siesta Village. It truly was paradise for 30+ days. The accommodations had everything we needed. We would definitely return again.

Another GREAT Stay at La Dolce Vita!

  • 5 of 5
May 2013 was our third stay at La Dolce Vita. We enjoy the condo and surrounding area so much that we plan to try to visit at least every other year, if not more often. Wendy takes such good care of her place. It is not like renting a "hotel type condo", it is staying in someone's personal home. The fishing was good, so Danny was happy. The pool was warm and inviting, so I was happy. We look forward to many more visits in the future. Thanks so much, Wendy, for making your beautiful, peaceful condo available!

Everything You Need

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the condo. The proximity to the Siesta Key Village and the world famous Siesta Key Beach is very convenient. The private beach and pier are great for watching the beautiful sunsets or just hanging out. The amenities at the condo are great. Everything is there for you to enjoy your stay. One of the high points is walking out from the back door directly to the pool!

Loved my stay!

  • 5 of 5
I spent three months at La Dolce Vita and loved every minute of it. The owner was approachable, very generous, leaving many items like spices and cleaning supplies etc. The condo is very attractive, nice neighbors, and having the pool so close by was a treat.

Another Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5
This was our second time staying at La Dolce Vita. The condo is absolutely immaculate and decorated beautifully. We enjoyed being able to step out the door to the pool. A short, lovely 5 minute walk to the beach and pier is nice, too. Danny had success fishing every day. We cannot wait until our next opportunity to visit again.

Many blessings to you, Wendy! Thanks so much for making this piece of paradise available!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5
We couldn't have asked for a better location - close to the Village, the beach and a fishing pier. The condo was well maintained and equipped. We could tell that Wendy loves her place, and we were pleased to be able to enjoy it for the month of January.
