ISLAND STYLE LUXURY BEACH HOUSE

Siesta Key House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 9

Enjoy true island living in a beautifully decorated beach house. 3 short blocks to Siesta Key beach, this Key West style home offers a beautiful open-plan layout. The custom, gourmet kitchen opens onto a comfortably furnished living area with leather furniture and 40-in LCD flatscreen TV. Enjoy dinner in the wonderfully appointed dining room or have a casual meal in the eat-in-kitchen. The master bedroom is located on the first floor with a new King mattress and Island style decor. Upstairs you will find a unique 2-bedroom suite with full bathroom that sleeps 6 - a King bed in BR #2 and a Queen bed and two twins in BR #3 Access to this suite is from a separate, covered staircase right outside the kitchen sliding door. Also included in that suite is a 2nd floor screened deck that overlooks the free-form pool /spa and the tropical garden that borders on a unique pond filled with local birds and fish. Free wireless Internet access, cable TV, 2-car garage, laundry room and more! Many bicycles are in the garage for your use, as well as, beach carts, coolers, toys, umbrellas, chairs, etc.

Siesta Key is a small island located off the Gulf Coast of Sarasota, Florida connected by two bridges to the mainland. This beautifully decorated home offers luxury accommodations at a reasonable cost. Offering a beautiful pond in the back with a pool enclosed in a 2-story screened lanai, you will enjoy your stay every minute. Of course you can stroll to Crescent beach, only .2 mile away, about 500 steps or so. Come back from the beach, rinse off in the outdoor shower and relax after an invigorating dip in the heated pool or spa, which is heated to the same temperature as the pool. Head back into the house and enjoy an comfortable evening lounging in the comfy leather recliners or sofa while watching your favorite show or movie on a brand new 42' flatscreen TV. When it is time to finally sleep, you will totally relax in island style on the King size, pillow-top mattress in the Master bedroom or choose one of the other luxurious bedrooms. All bedrooms have new flatscreen TVs. Life is good!

This home is located in the serene neighborhood of Palm Island. We are an island on the island of Siesta Key! Very unique area! Our gourmet kitchen is extremely well-equipped and overlooks the lanai and pool area. Living room has leather furniture with four reclining chairs and a buttery soft leather sofa, very comfortable!!! The pond has interesting wildlife: ducks, birds, turtles, small fish. It is fun to see all the activity in the pond. We offer beach gear for you to use when you walk to the beach, which is literally minutes away. The beach is quiet yet near enough to the public beach for rest rooms, lifeguards, activities and the concession stand for food. When you return from the beach you can enjoy the view from the 2nd floor deck, relax in the shady lanai or sun yourself poolside. This home has so much to offer. We hope you will visit and create memorable and happy vacation memories.

Siesta Key is a great place all year 'round! The summer offers incredible beach opportunities with the Gulf of Mexico warm and inviting. The winter is a haven for those who want to 'get away' from the cold weather. The spring and fall are beautiful times in Siesta (some of my favorite times!) with moderately warm temperatures, not too many crowds and fun activities abounding. Siesta Key is truly a 'year-round vacation spot with beautiful, pristine beaches and lots of culture at all times of the year. I guess that is why the Travel Channel has touted Siesta Key as the #1 best beach in the nation! It offers white sand that is 99% quartz. The sand never gets hot and you can walk on it without sandals, even in the middle of summer! Come experience Siesta Key and live the island style in our 'Siesta Beach House!'

We are NJ residents but love Siesta Key! We have been coming to the 'the Key' since 1989 and our children and now our little grandchildren all love it here! Clare is a professional artist and teaches art to all ages from 4 -94. Our home is decorated in her artistic style. Chet is a computer professional who loves to swim and fish. We especially love all that the Sarasota area has to offer, including the arts, theater, gorgeous beaches, golf, tennis, wonderful restaurants and a beautiful and friendly downtown Sarasota. We love all of the seasons here b/c there is always something new going on. We also like that there is a nice mix of ages from youth to senior.

Clare Godleski purchased this house in 2006

After having owned a condo on Siesta Key, we decided that since our family was growing it was time to get a larger home. We now have two married daughters with husbands and 5 grandkids (all those kids born in 3 years!!!) Our family loves Siesta Key! We particularly loved this house b/c of it's fabulous location. Located such a short walk to the beach, close to the village (but far away enough not to get the noise) and located on Palm Island (an island on an island, how tropical can you get???) it was the perfect house for us (and hopefully you!) We have put so much love and hard work into this house to make it the home it is now. We hope you will enjoy and care for it as much as we do!

We are so close to the most beautiful and uncrowded part of Siesta Key Beach (also know as Crescent beach b/c of it's shape.) Since we are two blocks north of the concession area, we are nearer to the homes on Siesta rather than the condos, so lots less congestion on the beach. You can sit and enjoy the tranquil water and no crowds yet still walk to the concession stands, bathrooms, etc. at the main entrance. Our home also offer a fabulous and private backyard. It is tropical with beautiful birds coming to visit daily. Our pool has a two story screened cage surrounding it and it is so high you don't even realize it is there. There are no neighbors in the back of us b/c we have a lovely, small tributary of water that runs behind our home. The open floor plan of this home allows for families to be together but also allows for privacy with the unique layout of the bedrooms, one downstairs with it's own en suite bathroom and two upstairs in a beautiful two bedroom suite with full bathroom and a huge hall separating the two rooms. There are also two lanais (another word for covered porch). One is upstairs off of the 2 bedroom suite and the other is downstairs off of the kitchen and it leads to the outdoor pool. There is a convenient pool bath and we also have 'child gates' so children cannot access the pool directly from the lower level doors. We are always concerned about the comfort and safety of our guests. This is truly a special home.

Big & beautiful house

This house is absolutely beautiful. It is a very big house but it feels warm and very cozy.

The house is decorated by an artist and every where you look you see beautiful furniture and natural light. It is very comfortable with everything you need to spend a wonderful vacation.(kitchen very well equiped, good beds, close to the beach.....)

It is beautiful inside but also outside.There is a heated pool in the back yard surrounded by tropical gardens and every morning you can hear the birds singing.

I have spent vacations there in the summer but also in the winter. The pool is heated in the winter and it is fun to relax in the pool, even in January!

I would go back there any time.

Perfect home and destination!

  • 5 of 5
My family just returned from a perfect vacation in Siesta Key. It was our first visit and we can't wait to go back.

I can't say enough good things about this home. It exceeded our expectations in every way. The location could not be better. It is a short walk to both the village with great restaurant and shops and the famous Siesta Key beach. Once we pulled in the driveway we could have done without our vehicle. The house has EVERYTHING we needed, from plenty of beach towels to coolers for the beach, toys for the kids and bikes to tour the area. The pictures of the home and pool area don't do it justice. The appliances are furnishings are all high end and is larger than appears in the photos. The house was spotless when we arrived. It is obvious the owners take pride in the home.
We spent each morning outside in the lanai having coffee and listening to the birds etc.

Our favorite place to eat was the SKOB (Siesta Key Oyster Bar) and the kids loved Big Olaf's ice cream. We went to each several times during our stay. There is plenty of great options for food and shopping in the village.

The owners are extremely nice and quick to respond to any questions we had.

The beach is amazing. We spent most of our time right at the beach access closest to the home but the main, public beach is a short walk. Truly some of the best sunsets we've ever seen. The kids had a blast playing in the waves, building sand castles and searching for sand dollars.

Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer. All of us, kids included, can't wait to go back. I would recommend this to anyone.

What an incredible fully equipped house! We had absolutely everything we needed or wanted in this beautiful home. It was very comfortable and inviting and centrally located to both the beach and village. It was especially nice to have a wagon, coolers and beach umbrellas! We all had a wonderful time. Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Home from home

  • 5 of 5
My family and I have just spent a glorious two weeks at this lovely vacation home.Extremely comfortable
throughout whether lounging in the sitting room,sleeping on the divine beds or chilling out by the pool.
Everything has been thought about to make your stay home from home.Amazingly equipped Kitchen,should you want to cook,large television if you have time to view,WI Fi ,which my Children would find difficult to do without,and so many things such as beach chairs ,bikes ,buckets and spades etc.etc.
So many rental homes are sparse and clinical without attention to detail.
The house is such a short walk to the fantastic beach and also into Siesta village so we rarely needed a car.
The area is very peaceful and we enjoyed the birds morning and evenings.
I would certainly recommend this property and all my family said they would definitely like to return one day.
I would also like to add that the owner personally contacted me to answer some of my questions regarding the property which I considered exceptional.

A Perfect Paradise

  • 5 of 5
This was my family's (Mum, Dad and 3 boys) first trip to Siesta Key and what a wonderful place to stay. Just a few minutes from the amazing Siesta Key beach and a stroll from the village, we had a great time during our trip to Florida. The beach speaks for itself and don't forget to go at sunset. Sarasota is also great to explore. We would recommend a sight seeing boat trip, the Saturday morning market on Main St and the shopping at St Armands Circle.

Can't wait to come back and enjoy this slice of paradise again."

Notes:
This is truly a 'home away from home.' You will feel very comfortable here. The downstairs bedroom would be suitable for someone that could not do stairs well since it is on the first floor. The first floor does not have any stairs. All of the appliances are brand new, as is the furniture, beds and decor. The home is immaculately kept and we have tried to make it family friendly. We do ask that anyone that stays here tries to keep it clean and orderly and is respectful to our neighbors. There is a 2-car garage attached to the home. We have included beach amenities, umbrellas, chairs, beach cart, noodles, cooler, etc. Our neighborhood is pleasant, quiet and serene. We are close to the beach and there is a beautiful, private yard with tropical foliage abounding. If you are looking for a place to call home for awhile, for a place to 'escape' from the hustle and bustle of everyday living, this is for you!
