ON SIESTA KEY: FABULOUS LOCATION! ON CANALS! NEWLY RENOVATED!

Sarasota House Rental Photos and Description

WE ARE NOT TAKING RESERVATIONS FOR FEBRUARY OR MARCH 2015 YET.

This Beach chic Siesta Key home is located just two blocks from Siesta Village and an easy walk to Siesta beach. In fact, the home is only a 3 minute bike ride--and we supply bikes! This is to the nicest part of the beach away from where all the condos and public parking are, so it is much quieter and truly beautiful. PLEASE NOTE: We do not rent the home for longer than a 2 week period during the winter season.

We just completed remodeling of the home with beach chic flair. Remodeling included new pool, new decking (2000 sq ft of it!), outdoor dining, outdoor kitchen, sliding glass doors, complete interior painting, new furniture, remodeled bathrooms--basically everything has been updated!

It is actually a 4 bedroom (one of the bedrooms is a deluxe queen sleeper sofa in the den with its own bathroom, and large screen TV), 3 bath home with full laundry and kitchen. Well, two kitchens, if we include the outside kitchen complete with grill, refrigerator and sink. Free wireless internet, DirecTV, security system, and plenty of parking. There's even a jet ski dock, a boat dock, and ability to launch a kayak--so feel free to bring your water toys. Fish off the deck, the mullet are always jumping!

The home is on a corner lot on the canal. Awake to the sights and sounds of tropical birds in the canal and fish jumping. Sit on the new deck with your cup of coffee, before you take your first meander to the beach. (Sunday is the Farmer's Market. We stop by there, buy a cup of coffee and a danish, and stroll to the beach.) Spend your day on the water either in the pool, at the beach or just looking over the canals. You can't go wrong!

If you want to stay inside, this home is a relaxed, comfortable, beach home. Designed for you to truly relax. It is meant to be a place for flip-flops and bathing suits. Our enclosed patio is simply a place of peace with overhead fans looking out onto the canal.

The house is complete with all your linens, towels, beach towels, beach chairs, and even bicycles. We haven't missed a detail. And if we have, please let us know, we will make sure it is supplied!

If this is your first visit to Siesta Key you are in for a treat! The Village has so much to offer--restaurants, bars, sports bars, ice-cream shops, boutiques and all the souvenir stores for late late wandering. There are plenty of massage therapists, a fitness center, post office, drugstore, You can enjoy it all just a couple blocks from our house! Truly, you don't need a car!

Leslie and David live in Denver, Colorado. Leslie has lived there for 22 years, and cried every winter! We are both thrilled to finally own a home in such an incredibly beautiful and WARM place. We will spend as much time in the house as possible, and rent it when we can't be there. Eventually, this wonderful Siesta Key Beach house will be our home for retirement. Everything we are doing with the house is done with much love and care, for ourselves and for you.

Leslie and David Housman purchased this house in 2012

We fell in love with Siesta Key from the first time we went to the beach and experienced the white powdery sand. We knew immediately why it had been voted #1 Beach in America. Everything about this area fits our love of water, and an easy going life style. We also enjoy going into Sarasota and to St. Armand's circle for more 'city' life.

We chose this property because we absolutely loved the location--both the location near the Village and beach, but also as a corner lot on the canal. We also love the relaxed and warm feeling of the home. The fact that we could do some remodeling and make it truly our home, add an incredible deck and pool, made it perfect for us.

Perfect acation Rental!

What a perfect vacation home! Fantastic location - very short walk to village and beach but far enough away to enjoy peace and quiet. The house is so much bigger in real life! The home was beautiful and the outdoor space was amazing. Have been visiting Siesta Key for 7 years and this was by far the nicest property we have stayed in. I would highly recommend this home to anyone and hope to make a return visit sooner rather than later!

My family and my parents celebrated the holidays in this beautiful home and were very sad to leave. From the moment we pulled in the driveway I knew we made the perfect choice. The home is quite spacious, beautifully decorated and landscaping was tropical and inviting! The outside living space was my absolute favorite with the outdoor kitchen, pool and patio! The location could not have been better! A short walk to shops, restaurants and the beach! Our local favorites were Sun Garden, Eat Here and Subzero. The owners were delightful and provided great details to ensure a pleasant stay. I would highly recommend this fabulous home!
Owner's Response: Thank you so much to all our guests for their wonderful reviews. We hope to make every stay for each guest a special experience filled with many fabulous memories. Truly, Leslie and David Housman

Here is an email we received from our most recent guest:

Thanks Leslie :)

Your home was perfect for our family and the peace and tranquility that I found in the early mornings with a cup of coffee in my hand, sitting in the round chair while journaling was priceless!

I hadn't ridden a bicycle since I was a kid and they are right when they say, "it's like riding a bicycle, once you learnt how... you'll never forget!" My husband and I rode to the beach for yoga a few mornings and it was AWESOME! Tell me you've done it!

I would love to stay in touch, as we would be thrilled to visit your place again in the future!

An aboslutely wonderful house in a wonderful place

We are pretty choosy when it comes to accomodation, why it took us some time to find a place that matched our requirements. When we finally did, and everything turned out exactly as nice as we'd hoped for, it was all worth the search! Beautiful and clean house perfectly situated next to the canals, with walking distance to restaurants and the beach. I would definately chose Siesta Key again, and would return to this house any day!

Our family had such a great time in Siesta Key. The house was perfect for my three teenagers. We were able to run on the beach each day, walk to shopping and restaurants. The kids were able to go out for ice cream or to the beach because it was so close to the house. The house had everything we needed. The renovations were great! We loved lounging by the pool each day as a family. We had so much fun sitting in all the nice areas we never turned on the TV once!

Siesta Key is a destination for all who stay or live in the Sarasota area thanks to the wide variety of entertainment and dining options that stretch its length. On the north end, a short walk from one of Siesta's large expanses of public beach, lies Siesta Key Village. In the village's quaint few blocks you'll find dozens of shops that cater to the island lifestyle, including groceries, hardware, souvenirs, bathing suits and all kinds of outdoor toys. Siesta Key Village restaurants -- most with large, open-air dining -- range from pancake and egg joints to award-winning fine dining spots. No matter how fancy, though, dress codes are always casual: Sandals are not only allowed, they're expected.

At the south end of Siesta Key you'll find more restaurants, shops and public beaches, as well as marina and boat rental facilities. Within minutes, you can putter in a pontoon boat or slice through waves in a high-powered jet ski. Try parasailing for more high-flying adventure, where you'll experience a unique view of Siesta Key while suspended from a parachute over 100 feet in the air. Or exercise more than just your sense of wonder by renting a boat or a kayak to explore the island on your own.

Then, if that isn't enough, feel free to drive to wonderful Sarasota with all its shops, restaurants and entertainment!
