The Grand Canal Cottage features an abundance of fruit trees, palm trees, flowers, a huge brick paver waterside terrace [seats 24] with a heated pool and a separate heated 8-person spa, 2 kayaks, 6 bicycles, a fishing dock with an underwater fish light and great fishing, an enclosed garage, and an oversized parking paver driveway.

MASTER SUITE AND OTHER BEDROOMS: The Master Suite is very large with two comfortable swivel chairs, a leather Stressless chair, a writing desk, a triple slider offering a wonderful view of the waterfront, wall mounted flat panel TV. bamboo floors and a very comfortable King size bed [sleeps 2]. The bath is travertine and includes a very nice shower with glass enclosure, an oversize steeping bath and dual sinks.

It’s perfect for a couple with small children or the teenagers who desire their “own space” An oversize new set of washer/dryers in available as well as internet, wi-fi and Apple TV.

BEACH, VILLAGE & LANDSCAPING: Siesta Beach, one of the world’s finest [rated No. 16 by TripAdviser in 2013] is two blocks [approx 1/4 mile] directly west on Avenida Del Mare. You’ll love its crystal white quartz sand which remains cool in the summer and fine to the touch. It’s rare to find a large canal home so close to the beach. Excellent facilities are available at the beach including lifeguards, volleyball, morning exercise sessions, bathrooms, tennis, snack bar and plenty of parking [800 spaces and more coming]. It is within easy walking distance and a beach caddy with plenty of beach chairs and beach equipment is provided. Siesta Key Village is approximately 1 mile north of Avenida Del Mare. A leisure walk will get you there in 15 minutes. Plenty of restaurants, shops and night spots. Florida is known for its beaches, climate and foliage so this home features on its grounds an amazing amount of lavish tropical foliage to include many flower species as well as many fruit tree varieties. If you like plants and nature, you’ll love the grounds [almost like a botanical garden].

OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES: Everyone will enjoy the new heated pool with sun-shelf, 2 Kayaks for the canals, the 60 jet 8-person heated spa, flat screens everywhere for sports, the bicycles [6], the short distance to the beach, the outdoor gas grill, the wine cooler near the kitchen, the huge outdoor terrace, the underwater snook light bringing hundreds of fish right to the dock every night, terrific fishing off the lower waterfront deck at night, the canal front location and the nearby village.

We have had many wedding parties with guests ranging from 40 to 50 with ease. The kitchen is essentially a professional chef’s kitchen with capability of preparing foods and h'ordourves for large groups as well.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My Senior son and 2 buddies, with parents, stayed at this great home in Siesta Key. We loved it! The gourmet kitchen, fantastic patio with a hot tub, comfy beds and linens, bikes to ride, kayaks to paddle all offered us a trip to remember. The "boys" had their own space in the fully equipped apartment above the garage. They loved it. It was so convenient to have a washer and dryer, too! The house was surrounded by beautiful landscaping, and the house was situated on the point of the canal, with another canal intersecting it. It was quiet and private. The beach was an easy walk down the pretty street. Bike trails were close to. We walked to downtown Siesta Key to enjoy the shopping and restaurants. The Moms and sons went para-sailing, which was a short ride away and a very fun outing. There were many fun events close by, like drumming on the beach, Cirque de illuminations and shopping in St. Armand's Circle. We had great oysters on the half shell and fresh grouper out in area restaurants, and cooked great meals at our home away from home. It was fabulous!

Fantastic time!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 3 generation had an amazing vacation at this wonderful house. This is by far one of the most thoughtfully laid out and well equipped beach houses we have encountered in many years of renting vacation properties. The personalized cupcakes and the prestocked wine fridge was just what we needed upon arrival after a noisy plane ride with all the kids.
It was then off to the nearby amazing beach and doing some shopping on 41. Other members explored and enjoyed the beautiful and private landscaped grounds, my mom was especially delighted to see some unfamiliar tropical trees and plants. The kids loved fishing in the backyard, the snook light was great for seeing the fish. The week went by too quickly.
Overall a wonderful experience and we are very appreciative for the opportunity. Also appreciate Roger's detailed info guide on the house so we quickly felt at home. Thanks so much!

Great Family Escape!

  • 5 of 5
What a great place for a great family vacation. Easy & enjoyable walk to the beach with a stroller. Other family members enjoyed the bikes and kayaks provided. Roger was very attentive to all details and even got life jackets for my young daughters since we rented his boat. My almost 3 year old caught a fish off the dock, which was very exciting. If you have young children, beware that the dock is not fenced off & adult supervision is needed. It wasn't a problem for us with 6 adults. The kids loved watching the fish swim in the snook lights at night. Comfy beds, too. We would love to visit again.

ABOVE AND BEYOND!

  • 5 of 5
Our experience at the "Grand Canal Cottage" was beyond exceptional from start to finish. From the first phone conversation with the owner Roger, to the follow up calls - no detail was too small, no request went unanswered...and we had a lot of questions! 10 family members stayed at the house, but one day during our stay was a family birthday celebration with 30 guests! Roger didn't blink an eye at the suggestion of a party but rather asked how he could be of help, offering parking options, the best place to buy key lime pies and what supplies were available for us to use. Many times rental homes have the bare minimum - linens, towels and dish soap. Grand Canal Cottage has everything! Serving dishes, utensils, spices, wine, a cooler, bicycles...you name it!
The 3 main bedrooms provided great "couple space," especially the Master with it's own sitting area. The bunk room, or should I say bunk "apartment," was a great option for the kids who loved the idea of having their own place with a mini fridge and a flat screen! The outdoor patio looking out onto the canal - complete with hot tub, kayaks, a gas grill and bar - was delightful. The lush landscaping topped off the inviting setting.
-The 2 block walk to the beach is not an easy walk for some seniors, but there are 4 great bikes to choose from to make the distance negligible.
- Pictures always make spaces look larger than they are but the space at the cottage was more than adequate. The photos available on the website tell the true story of a warm, well appointed, well thought out home for vacationers to enjoy!
Thank you Roger...and daughter in law Heather...for all you did to make our family celebration one that we will never forget! And, Siesta Key itself was a wonderful place to visit too!

A home away from home

  • 5 of 5
My family and friends could not have been happier about the time we spent together in Roger's beautiful home and discovering Siesta Key. In the three weeks I was there, we ate out only once, because it was so much fun to prepare meals together in the fully stocked gourmet kitchen. I thought my guests would miss not having a swimming pool but we decided we were glad there was a hot tub instead. We loved sitting in it at night with a glass of wine and watching the fish attracted to the green glowing snook light in the canal. We made use of the provided bicycles to explore the key as well as the kayaks for exploring the canal. The house is less than a 10 minute walk to the public beach and I appreciated that beach chairs and a rolling cart were supplied. The house is clean, warm and welcoming. I particularly liked the master bedroom with its wall of sliding glass doors looking out onto the canal, the comfy bed with a pillowtop mattress and sateen sheets. The property is beautifully landscaped with fruit trees (which we were encouraged to pick and eat) and flowers. It felt very private. Roger and his daughter Heather were always available by phone and took care of any issue immediately (like sending a plumber when the WC was acting up). I'd recommend this property to anyone.

Family time

We enjoyed our stay very much. The house is amazing, it felt like home as soon as I walked in. Came to a surprise in the fridge and the girls went nuts. Could not wait to dive right into them. We chose to stay in and cook rather than go to restaurants - what an amzing kitchen.Thank you so much for a long relaxing weekend.
