About Ali and Rich Light
We are Ali, Rich and Chloe Jane Light. We moved to Siesta Key in 1997 and have never looked back. We absolutely love living here and sharing our paradise with our guests. We have been renting our six cosy bungalows since 1998. Ali is an artist and has drawn inspiration for colors and design of our bungalows from our travels to Hawaii, Ireland, and the British Virgin Islands. Rich was a custom design home builder and landlord for many years in the Philadelphia region, so together we have found the perfect match for having beach rentals.
Ali and Rich Light purchased this Bungalow in 1998
Why Ali and Rich Light chose Siesta Key
When we moved to Siesta Key in 1997 we knew that we wanted to be able to share this gorgeous area with others and having rentals seemed to be the perfect way.
What makes this Bungalow unique
The unique benefit of staying at our properties are the ability to walk right to the beach and village, or we provide bicycles so you can explore the island. We are always available and live just a few doors away from most of our places. We are always excited to share our favorite places and restaurants so even our single guests feel like they have family here.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
A piece of Siesta Key paradise
January and February living in The Lilly Pad was delightful and the neighborhood was fun and friendly.
If you are bringing your dog, you will experience a wonderful group of dog walkers to join most any time of the day.
The convenience of Palm Island will keep you close to the village to eat or shop or just walk around to people watch.
Personally, we really enjoyed Sarasota proper
So many more good restaurants are there as well as the local attractions and the waterside of the marina.
We always reserve a day or a sunset to charter a sail from any number of charters in the marina. You will see dolphin for sure.
Rich and Ali Light are very close by and go the extra mile to keep you happy and comfortable.
We enjoyed having you stay at our LILLY PATCH COTTAGE
and are looking forward to seeing you again.
Thank you for your review!

I had a very relaxing enjoyable vacation at the Lilly Patch with the greatest people in the greatest village by the greatest beach in the greatest neighborhood.
Ali and Rich and the Lilly Patch were a real joy. Comfortable, clean house and they were there for anything I needed including borrowing paper for my computor.
They are great host. So open and sharing and they make you feel very comfortable.
I felt like I was living in a garden as I sat on the lovely brick porch.
Love the out door shower. I am looking forward to coming back next year.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review for us. We really appreciate it. See you next year!
Charming vintage Florida bungalow
This is a review of "Lily Patch," a charming bungalow where my family and I spent the month of October 2013. The vintage cypress-wood Florida bungalow has been beautifully maintained inside and out. It is located on a large corner lot in a quiet residential neighborhood just a short walk from the white sands of Siesta Beach, or from the shops and dining of Siesta Key village. The outstanding feature of "Lily Patch" is the large screened lanai which runs along one side of the house and is accessed by double French doors from the interior. We spent much of our time here, enjoying the lovely lawn plantings and the song of mockingbirds and doves. The rooms in the bungalow are spacious and the furniture is comfortable. The central air conditioning works really well, and each room has a ceiling fan. An outside shower is useful for washing off beach sand after a swim. The large kitchen is well equipped with all necessary appliances. All in all, we consider "Lily Patch" a gem of a property in a special place, and we definitely will return.
Always BLUE upon leaving Blue Lagoon
What can I say! Incredible Cottage! Location is perfect. A short 2 block walk to the most beautiful location on the most beautiful beach in the US of A!!!!! Access. The Blue Lagoon is accurately portrayed in the pictures posted and is very clean and well maintained. The layout is open and very cozy! What they say down here very 'Old Florida' charm. Close enough to walk/bike to Siesta Key Village with lots of great restaurants. Eat Here and Flavio's being my favorites in the village for dinner and the Sun Garden cafe a must for breakfast. Very peaceful and quiet location. Luv sitting on the screen porch and reading w/ a glass of wine! Rich and Ali are great hosts with a plethora of local knowledge regarding everything fun to do in the area. A+ and you won't be disappointed! My pup Hogan loves the porch too and walking the neighborhood. Great dog beach in nearby Venice or Bird Key in Sarasota.
OUR COTTAGE IS LOCATED ON QUAINT NEIGHBORHOOD CALLED PALM ISLAND. IT'S A 5 MIN WALK TO THE FAMOUS SIESTA BEACH & 10 MIN WALK TO SIESTA VILLAGE FOR SHOPPING & RESTAURANT'S. YOU DON'T NEED TO LEAVE THE ISLAND. PLEASE VISIT OWNERS WEB SITE AT WWW.SIESTABUNGALOWS.COM FOR MORE INFO. THANKS, ALI & RICH
