Siesta Key is a small island located off the Gulf Coast of Sarasota, Florida connected by two bridges to the mainland. This beautifully decorated home offers luxury accommodations at a reasonable cost.

Come back from the beach, rinse off in the outdoor shower and relax after an invigorating dip in the heated pool or spa, which is heated to the same temperature as the pool. Head back into the house and enjoy an comfortable evening lounging in the comfy leather recliners or sofa while watching your favorite show or movie on a brand new 42' flatscreen TV. When it is time to finally sleep, you will totally relax in island style on the King size, pillow-top mattress in the Master bedroom or choose one of the other luxurious bedrooms. All bedrooms have new flatscreen TVs. Life is good!
This home is located in the serene neighborhood of Palm Island. We are an island on the island of Siesta Key! Very unique area! Our gourmet kitchen is extremely well-equipped and overlooks the lanai and pool area. Living room has leather furniture with four reclining chairs and a buttery soft leather sofa, very comfortable!!! The pond has interesting wildlife: ducks, birds, turtles, small fish. It is fun to see all the activity in the pond. We offer beach gear for you to use when you walk to the beach, which is literally minutes away. The beach is quiet yet near enough to the public beach for rest rooms, lifeguards, activities and the concession stand for food. When you return from the beach you can enjoy the view from the 2nd floor deck, relax in the shady lanai or sun yourself poolside. This home has so much to offer. We hope you will visit and create memorable and happy vacation memories.
Siesta Key is a great place all year 'round! The summer offers incredible beach opportunities with the Gulf of Mexico warm and inviting. The winter is a haven for those who want to 'get away' from the cold weather. The spring and fall are beautiful times in Siesta (some of my favorite times!) with moderately warm temperatures, not too many crowds and fun activities abounding. Siesta Key is truly a 'year-round vacation spot with beautiful, pristine beaches and lots of culture at all times of the year. I guess that is why the Travel Channel has touted Siesta Key as the #1 best beach in the nation! It offers white sand that is 99% quartz. The sand never gets hot and you can walk on it without sandals, even in the middle of summer! Come experience Siesta Key and live the island style in our 'Siesta Beach House!'
We are NJ residents but love Siesta Key! We have been coming the 'the Key' since 1989 and our children and now our little grandchildren all love it here! Clare is a professional artist and teaches art to all ages from 4 -94. Our home is decorated in her artistic style. Chet is a computer professional who loves to swim and fish. We especially love all that the Sarasota area has to offer, including the arts, theater, gorgeous beaches, golf, tennis, wonderful restaurants and a beautiful and friendly downtown Sarasota. We love all of the seasons here b/c there is always something new going on. We also like that there is a nice mix of ages from youth to senior.
After having owned a condo on Siesta Key, we decided that since our family was growing it was time to get a larger home. We now have two married daughters with husbands and 5 grandkids (all those kids born in 3 years!!!) Our family loves Siesta Key! We particularly loved this house b/c of it's fabulous location. Located such a short walk to the beach, close to the village (but far away enough not to get the noise) and located on Palm Island (an island on an island, how tropical can you get???) it was the perfect house for us (and hopefully you!) We have put so much love and hard work into this house to make it the home it is now. We hope you will enjoy and care for it as much as we do!
We are so close to the most beautiful and uncrowded part of Siesta Key Beach (also know as Crescent beach b/c of it's shape.) Since we are two blocks north of the concession area, we are nearer to the homes on Siesta rather than the condos, so lots less congestion on the beach. You can sit and enjoy the tranquil water and no crowds yet still walk to the concession stands, bathrooms, etc. at the main entrance. Our home also offer a fabulous and private backyard. It is tropical with beautiful birds coming to visit daily. Our pool has a two story screened cage surrounding it and it is so high you don't even realize it is there. There are no neighbors in the back of us b/c we have a lovely, small tributary of water that runs behind our home. The open floor plan of this home allows for families to be together but also allows for privacy with the unique layout of the bedrooms, one downstairs with it's own en suite bathroom and two upstairs in a beautiful two bedroom suite with full bathroom and a huge hall separating the two rooms. There are also two lanais (another word for covered porch). One is upstairs off of the 2 bedroom suite and the other is downstairs off of the kitchen and it leads to the outdoor pool. There is a convenient pool bath and we also have 'child gates' so children cannot access the pool directly from the lower level doors. We are always concerned about the comfort and safety of our guests. This is truly a special home.
