Key West Cottage is located in a nice quiet family oriented safe neighborhood and is about 3 blocks from the village and may take about 15 minutes to walk down there or 1 -2 minutes drive. The beach is about a 20 minute walk or 2 to 5 minutes drive at most. It is so beach and village close without being overly annoyed by the crowds and tourists running around...instead you have more of a relaxed chilled feeling and is even safe to walk at night (bring a flashlight!). This is a great location and you are also very easily accessible to the bridge that takes you into Sarasota and you don’t have to deal with tourists traffic in high season getting in and out of the village! Key! Everyone who lives in the neighborhood is a local and all so nice and friendly! You will not walk by one person who doesn’t have a big hello or smile for you ;).
Siesta Key is really a special gem of a place which has a romantic genuine vibe and so much character...it really is a unique area full of charm. The beaches walking distance to the home boast stunning white sand and crystal clear blue waters. A sight to behold..

Our names are Kirstin and Elliot, we are married and have a 4 year old daughter, a baby girl and a golden retriever! :-) We currently live FT in California now, but always dream of our sweet Siesta even after moving 4 years ago. Elliot is British from Surrey originally and runs his own technology consultancy company here called Squeeze Technology. He does projects for customers in the USA and Europe and his passion right now is cloud based computing. Kirstin is American and from San Francisco originally and is a stay at home mom who also designs fancy vintage inspired hair accessories and bridal veils! Spending time with our daughter and family is our main focus and love. We love to travel, love house decor and renovating/updating and enjoy the simple things in life, like eating at a casual breakfast place or shopping the day away! We love watching the sunset and having cocktails and a fun dinner outside!
We decided to purchase an home in beautiful Siesta Key while living in the UK. We wanted to make a change and move somewhere new and has been hearing so much about the area...it was getting so much press there at the time! We initially came to Sarasota and were not sure where to look, but one day we drove over the bridge to Siesta Key and we fell in love immediately. There was no question at ALL, we knew we had found our paradise. We walked through the village and walked to the beache and saw how BLUE and CLEAR the water was and we could not believe it. Neither of us had seen anything like it and we had traveled a lot! We got straight on our laptops and looked up homes online on a realtor website. We saw the listing and the rest was history! :-) We saw the home the next day & we put in an offer that next morning. We moved a few years later from England to live in Siesta Key after renting the house out to vacationers. We knew we had to be there all the time.
We lived in Siesta key for about 2 years. In that time we had our first daughter. Technology business opportunities brought us to California which is also very lovely. We are very happy here, but we do really miss Sarasota and Siesta Key though and there is not a day that goes by that we do not think about it and genuinely really miss it with our heart. A very special place in this world. We also have some amazing neighbors in Siesta and we still talk to them and email. You will probably be lucky enough to have them wave hello to you and start upbeat conversations during your stay at Key West Cottage! Such special people! You must take evening walks around the neighborhood or early morning walks into the village!!!
Key West Cottage is a truly special place. When staying at the house, we love to sit by the pool (art deco tiled) sipping a nice cold drink and flipping through a magazine or book as we gaze at the tropical gardens. We love BBQ’ing and eating on the deck in the evenings when staying in. If we go out we love to eat somewhere casual like the HUB in the village. or one of the spectacular restaurants in town! One of our favs is the Sand Bar - outdoors, music, right on the beach..you can go barefoot! :-). We love that we can relax in the Master and see right out to the pool...watch it glisten in the sun...tempting you to come in. What we miss so much about Key West Cottage is the just relaxing amazing feeling you have when you walk into the property. We felt it the first time we walked in to view the home...and we still feel it today whenever we visit! Just like a feeling of leaving your cares and worries at the door, take off your shoes and feel yourself be carried away to paradise. So nice to be able to walk to the village too! Our neighborhood is village close, but also enough away that you are not amongst the crowds and the touristy feeling. So it is quiet!! Really nice! :-)
