“Villa Cascada” is an absolutely beautiful and uniquely configured private pool home featuring four bedrooms, two dens, four bathrooms [sleeps 14], two living areas and two kitchens and an almost unbelievable pool courtyard. The Villa is well located just two quick blocks and easy walking distance [4 minutes] from Beach Access 13, which directly accesses the Point of Rocks beach area. Point of Rocks, located just south of the Stickney Point Causeway, the most notable location on Siesta Key, is blessed with the soft, white quartz sand found on Siesta Key beach, but geologically unique and named for the formation of limestone rock that extends from the beach out into the Gulf of Mexico. This location has become home to a wide array of tropical fish and is not only a great environment for fishing but the only real location for great snorkeling on the Island
On your arrival at “Villa Cascada”, as you enter the gated courtyard with potted flowers, you quickly notice the brown striped sunbrella awnings shading the soft banana yellow home and begin to sense the beauty of the Tropics and special allure of this lovely home. All bedrooms and living areas have wall mounted flat panel televisions and plenty of closet space with custom built-in shelving. All four bathrooms are spotless, bright, clean, and full tile with glass shower enclosures or glass block walk-in showers easily accessed by all rooms. Outside full showers accommodate everyone coming in from the beach. The entire home is floored with rich, luscious expensive travertine throughout. The neutral colors yet vibrant artwork immediately restore your faith in the soothing power of tropical surroundings.
Uniquely, this home offers not one but two large kitchens, both offering granite countertops, stainless appliances, everything necessary to prepare and serve lavish gourmet meals for a huge group, even wine coolers as well. Two exquisitely furnished, expansive living areas offer the opportunity for all to gather in a single room or slip away for a few hours of individual family indulgence, completely your choice. There is plenty of dining seating at the table, bar counters or poolside to accommodate everyone and the moment’s desire. And if an absolutely plush interior is not enough, outside you will find an enormous heated pool featuring a large waterfall and side sprayers to add to the mystical tropical sounds that lull you quickly into a tranquil relaxed state. The large private, pool courtyard is filled with outdoor furnishings to complement your full enjoyment of this tropical paradise whether you choose to feed 14 at one seating or break off into separate groups, perhaps kids and adults or even families. The pool courtyard is surrounded by lush tropical vegetation for shade and enjoyment, all designed to enhance the tropical feeling. And special landscape lighting at night only serves to extend your most pleasurable moments.
