Loved this cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this cottage! Very clean and neat, nicely furnished, had pretty much everything I needed in the kitchen. Vic is very attentive to details and on top of all questions. Location was great- walkable to the Village and the beach. Pool was nice, although February wasn't too warm this year and we didn't get to use it except to enjoy sitting outside in the sun. Great place. I stayed for a month - not enough!

Comfy Chic with easy access to village & beach

  • 5 of 5

How can you beat being 1 block from the heart of Siesta Village's restaurants/nightlife and 2 short blocks from a gorgeous part of Siesta Key beach? This was an impecable & ample 2br/2ba property with lovely details all throughout. Furniture, kitchen's/laundry's appliances, cookware, electronics, bath products, linens, towels, etc., were all top grade. Enjoy complete relaxation between the beach and the nice onsite pool with bbq and lounge furniture. You cannot beat the easiness of this property and its location. Its owner makes sure every detail is taking care of. Its impeccably clean, safe and comfortable. Still miss comfy late sleeps, mid morning local pastisserie breakfast, beach day perfection, cocktails by the pool, Siesta Key sunset picnic and then walking over to The Cottage for great live music and tapas. Our kids can't stop talking about how it was a top family favorite. Miss it, highly recommend it and want to come back really soon!

We have been visiting Vic's place for 3 years now. It's always spotless, there is plenty of room, a great pool that his heated. I really enjoy how well stocked the house is with towels, beach toys and household items. I would like to see some bikes.

We will definitely be back. Vic is a wonderful house manager too! Always friendly and available if you need her.

Lots of family fun!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our family's second time staying with Vic's Love Shack properties. We specifically chose them because we were amazed by Vic's high standards for property maintenance and cleanliness - plus she does a great job of providing extra touches that make us feel welcome and relaxed from the moment we walk in. We had a lot of fun walking to the great restaurants that are only a block away (plus Sunni Bunni, that has the best frozen yogurts ever!) and walking to the Siesta Key beach that is our favourite of all the beaches in Florida (and I have been coming to Florida for over 40 years), with its cool sand bar, soft sand, beautiful sunsets, and 'Bay Watch' lifeguards at the public beach. We have special memories of great, relaxed family times from our stay here and we look forward to returning.

We are located within an easy walking distance to a long stretch of crystal-white sand of Siesta Key beaches that front the beautiful Gulf of Mexico—just minutes to the shops and restaurants of charming Siesta Key Village. In addition to the many events on Siesta Key, you can enjoy various activities within a 15 minute drive to downtown - Sarasota offers theaters, golfing, boating, fishing and tennis. Orlando's Walt Disney World Complex, MGM Studios, Universal Theme parks and Tampa's Busch Gardens are within a short driving distance.

Call today to make your reservations.

WHAT TO DO:

• MAKE A SPLASH: Enjoy great fun for the whole family with a number of wonderful waterways, beautiful beaches, bountiful bays, and of course the famous white quartz sand beaches in Siesta Beach! You can also paddle through exotic mangrove tunnels or hire a fishing guide to spend your days catching grouper, snapper and Spanish mackerel.

• GO WILD! Get up-close and personal with marine and jungle life at local attractions! Learn about the underwater ecosystem and feel as close as ever to dolphins, stingrays, sea turtles and manatees at the Mote Aquarium. Befriend pink flamingoes or an infamous Florida alligator at the Jungle Gardens. And see lions, tigers and bears (oh, my!) at the Big Cat Habitat.

• GOLF! Enjoy a great afternoon playing golf at one of Sarasota's many courses. Bobby Jones is the only 45-hole public facility, but tee times at other clubs, such as University Park Country Club or The Resort at Longboat Key Club can be arranged.

THINGS TO SEE...

• DO THE 'RINGLING'! The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art is a 66-acre estate where circus legend John Ringling and his wife, Mable, collected art and built a house on a grand scale. The museum features galleries of classic art as well as a museum dedicated to the Ringling Brothers Circus. The grounds themselves are a wonderful botanical display and there's nothing more relaxing than to view of the bay from the marble patio.

• SEE THE GARDENS! Stop and smell the flowers at The Marie Selby Botanical Gardens. This research and education center boasts thousands of colorful and exotic plants and includes more than 6,000 orchids alone. It's no surprise it has 'planted' itself in the top ten ranking of America's best botanical gardens by Country Living Gardner Magazine.

• EXPERIENCE THE THEATER! The Sarasota Opera is one of many wonderful performing arts venues, garnering international attention with its Masterwork Revival Series. And be sure to catch a performance by the Sarasota Ballet, as it is rapidly becoming one of the best in the world of its size.
