About Bill Burns

The owners, Bill and Molly bought their first triplex on Calle Miramar in '89. They've lived on Siesta Key ever since then and are very familiar with all that Sarasota has to offer.

Bill Burns purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Bill Burns chose Siesta Key

The Siesta Key Blue Cottage is the second property we've owned on Calle Miramar. It's a sought after location just 1/2 block to both the Beach and the Village. Built in 1949, it has withstood the test of time and is one of the few remaining examples on Siesta Key of the Florida Bungalow.

What makes this cottage unique

Unique benefits to this property are it is a ground floor, one floor housing unit. No flights of stairs to haul your bags up. An easy walk with a chair and beach towel gets you to the quieter end of Siesta Beach without trying to find parking! And it's a short walk, not a drive or ride, into Siesta Village where you have many restaurants to choose from. Location, location, location.

Another great week!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from another great week at this cottage; it's become our go-to winter getaway place. Responsive and caring hosts, perfect location, comfortable, and equipped with everything you could need. Being able to walk to the beach and into the Village makes a huge difference since SK traffic at peak season is something to be reckoned with! Wish we were the only ones who knew about this gem of a place.

Fabulous experience!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Blue Cottage over Christmas, and couldn't have asked for anything more. The location was perfect! Easy walk to the beach, the village and the store. We parked our car and never had to use it. The cottage was very well stocked and exceptionally clean, quiet and comfortable. We had a small issue during our stay, but Bill and Molly handled it in a quick and professional manner. They were a pleasure to meet, and we look forward to getting to know them better. Bill, Molly and the cottage impressed us so much that we have already rebooked for next year!

Excellent getaway at the Blue Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved Bill and Molly's sweet bungalow. It was beautifully and comfortably furnished and stocked with everything we needed, including candles, suntan lotion and beach towel/chairs. We enjoyed cocktails one evening with friends on the delightful patio. The location is perfect and we had no need for our car. Bill and Molly were so very helpful and we enjoyed some of the best martinis at The Blase' Cafe per Molly's recommendation. We look forward to getting our "beach fixes" in the future at the Blue Cottage!

The Perfect Spot!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week here late September/early October during what I would consider "low season." We loved the duplex's close proximity to all the things we were wanting to do. We skipped renting a car because you can get around the island easily on foot, bicycle or using one of the "free" ride services on the Key. The cottage was just a block or so off the main street where restaurants and shopping can be found. It was cozy, clean, nicely updated and beautifully furnished. The beach is about a 5+ minute walk to reach your final destination is near the shore. Bill, the owner, couldn't have been kinder. He met us at the cottage upon arrival, walked us through everything and made sure all our questions were answered before leaving. Since we had quite a bit of rain during our stay, it was great to have a place we could lounge around, watch TV and wait out the weather. The beach chairs, umbrella and mats were also great amenities. The sunlight really reflects off the sand so use plenty of sunscreen and make good use of the umbrella! And don't forget to stroll back to the beach for sunset, you won't be disappointed. Overall, we couldn't have picked a better place to stay. (Note: Pay close attention to the latch on the wooden doors outside the cottage -- it bites. Hard!)

A true gem!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just got back from a long weekend at the cottage. We absolutely loved the place and the location. Every convience you can think of is there, central air , full kitchen, grill, lovely backyard . The beach chairs and umbrella were a big bonus, easy to carry on your 3 minute walk to the most lovely beach. Loved strolling the the village in the evenings . Looking forward to staying again, could not have been more perfect!
