This cottage is loaded with charm and has about 1000 sf of airconditioned/heated living area and a huge screened porch w comfy furniture, hot tub and dining table. All of our guests have loved this place.
At the entrance is a large room which houses not only the laundry facilities, but a full shower bath and a twin bed. Great little hideaway for the guest who wants privacy.
There is a full kitchen, dining room, living room with television, a bedroom with a King size bed, a bedroom with a Queen size bed , bathroom between the bedrooms.
The best room of the house is OUTside the house. The large screened porch is perfect for reading, relaxing, snoozing, dining and get togethers. The yard is fenced and private. There is a nice shade tree in the middle of the yard and an outdoor grill, table and chairs for outdoor dining and an outdoor shower.
There are rolling coolers, chairs and umbrella for the beach and the public pool is just 2 blocks away.
Fabulous St. Armands Circle is just a 10 minute walk from the cottage. See their website for names and locations of 150 shops.

Anne, the owner, is now 102 years young. Judi & Claudia, the daughters, take care of the property and do the bookings. Mother bought the cottage as an investment for us. She loves chocolate, art, PBS, news, history, opera and family.
We chose this location not only because it is near the beach, but because it is near kayaking, a park, a pool and tons of shopping, the best in Sarasota.
Everyone enjoys sitting on the big back porch or in the yard, cooking on the grill, and showering outside after beaching.
