Centrally located in the heart of Sarasota, and only minutes away from our world famous Siesta Key Beach, Villa Espanola offers a bright and cheerful retreat with a heated swimming pool and a privately fenced backyard. Perfect for larger families that enjoy the peaceful serenity of their own private garden and pool area, who love the closeness to not only Siesta Key, but the nightlife of Southside Business District and Downtown Sarasota.
Villa Espanola is a three bedroom two bath private home that features a screened-in lanai and an expansive, deep swimming pool. Two outdoor seating areas can be enjoyed off to the side of the lanai, providing a perfect place for sunbathing, and a secondary shady spot for those who like a cool breeze and a great view of the pool. The backyard is completely fenced providing an extremely private setting, with a beautiful garden area and a pond bursting with goldfish and koi.
We highly recommend a neighborhood walk every morning to get invigorated for the day, but on your way back in, stop in the front yard and pop a few kumquats off the tree to get your daily Vitamin C dose... it’s as powerful as a cup of coffee! The neighborhood is also friendly to bicyclers. Restaurants and bars are just two blocks away and it makes for a nice easy walk. Our posh Westfield Shopping mall is only a mile down the road, a leisure drive around our Tuttle Avenue roundabout and on to Siesta Drive. Enjoy the most perfect steaks ever prepared at Fleming’s Restaurant, just around the corner!
The cottage is configured for maximum comfort and enjoyment for large families and parties who will find it colorful and adorned with original oil paintings and art work. Transform the already expansive living area into an even larger space by opening our stacking sliders and inviting the outdoors in… Or settle in for comfy cozy TV time with the family and friends with plush ample seating, HDTV with hundreds of movie channels and OnDemand Video Entertainment at the tips of your fingers.
The nearby kitchen is a gourmet’s delight filled with granite tops and stainless steel new appliances. Every conceivable cooking gadget is there allowing you to enjoy a quiet lunch together or prepare a feast for ten. And the kitchen is open to the family areas so the chef in the kitchen can still enjoy socializing with the whole group! You’ll love the kitchen and all of its features. Top rated.
When its time to retire to the bedrooms, enjoy the privacy of a split plan, with the oversized master on one side and two bedrooms on either end. Everyone enjoys their personal space with plush bedding, exceptional pillows, HDTV in every room, and space for personal work/play stations. The bathrooms are decadently appointed with new faucets, granite counters, and upscale cabinetry, and are spotless! Towels are plush and ample and include oversized beach towels as well. We provide all linens as well which as you might expect, are extremely nice.
There are four bikes awaiting you in the garage. Since we are in the heart of Sarasota, why not take some time to explore our city in all of its greatness? Also, as our guests, you have access to private boat and kayak excursions, exclusive to your party only, and these fun activities await you on Siesta Key, just a few miles away but convenient from your front door! Everyone parks at the 800-car parking lot available at Siesta Key Public Beach Pavilion which makes access easy and so nice.
We welcome you to Villa Espanola and look forward to your visit!
