We are Indiana Hoosiers, and we love our beach home on Siesta Key. It is our escape from Carl's job as an owner/manager of a family hardware store, and Diane's job as a real estate agent. We have two children that enjoy the many recreational options in the area. Joey is a resident of Sarasota and works in construction. He is our "handyman". Jaynie is married to Mike and they have 2 children, Laynee and Nolan. Siesta Key is their escape from San Francisco. Our family and friends all love to visit our beach home!
The white powdery sand on Crescent Beach is the finest beach that we have ever seen. It has been our dream for many years to have a second home in Florida. Our Siesta Key villa became a reality for us in 1997 after we sold our Bed & Breakfast business in Northern Indiana Amish Country. It has been the most relaxing home and where we have made the most memories. We love for our guests to enjoy our home, and hope that they can make some wonderful memories there, as well.

It is a great beach for walking, and you can walk for miles. The kids can go parasailing, and there are bikes for rent, as well as boats and jet skis. Myakka River State Park is nearby for canoeing and kayaking, hiking and fishing. Take a day and go to Busch Gardens in Tampa or visit Disney World, Universal Studios or Sea World in Orlando. St. Armands circle is a great place to visit for shopping and many restaurants from which to choose. The Farmer's Market is on Saturdays.
