About Katherine Kelly
A Sarasota resident for 60 years ,raised on Siesta Key I consider myself a preservationist ,for Sarasota History and the environment.Artist and gardener are my passions. The first endeavor with rehabilitation was in 1996,another Sarasota Bungalow. Sweet Mango Manor was my next labor of love where I currently live.. The Birdhouse was moved to its current location next door on the Manor property in 2006. I am available 24-7 for any needs the Bird House guests may have.
Katherine Kelly purchased this Bungalow in 2006
Why Katherine Kelly chose Central Cocoanut
A large City Park(Pioneer) directly across the street with the home of the Sarasota County Historical Society taking center stage. Childrens playground ,tennis courts and a wonderful walk able community were attractive attributes! A City fringe neighborhood is the perfect location for walking and biking.
What makes this Bungalow unique
A step back in time with a taste of old Sarasota. ,The Bird House is nestled in a wonderfully eclectic Historic part of the city.A stones through to almost everything. Come enjoy and see for yourself !

The Most Comfortable Place!
This was our second stay at the Bird House and it didn't disappoint! My husband and I enjoy the flexibility of a fully-equipped kitchen and backyard grill. Having Publix a few blocks away makes meal planning so easy. And when we want to eat out, the choices are endless. We love all the city of Sarasota has to offer. Having the beautiful Bird House as home base makes it easy to get to the beaches, as well. We have already reserved for next year!
YES ! Sarasota is a wonderful foodie town with extraordinary culinary choices ! But having the park grill and the fully equipped kitchen at the Birdhouse Bungalow make staying in for meals a pleasure . Come enjoy!
Truly unique, spacious, quiet and beautiful!
This bungalow is perfect for solitude and reflection or entertaining! The owner has painted furniture and walls in a tropical motif and furnished the house throughout with antiques. The total effect is relaxed and authentic. A modern kitchen blends in with stained wood and there are both front and back porches perfect for reading or napping. I can't wait to go back!
Bird House Bungalow
The house was beautiful and eclectic. Very clean, inspiring, creative, and comfortable. All three bedrooms and bathrooms were perfect. The location is centralized to beach, museums, shopping, downtown, and entertainment. The owner is very accommodating and available for questions if needed. The living room is cozy. The kitchen was perfect for cooking with all supplies necessary to cook at home. There were no problems or worries with the neighborhood or neighbors. Off-street parking, nice back patio area, minutes to the beach, a few blocks from the grocery store, and easy access to downtown. The artistic flair and dedication to the preservation of the house is fantastic. We will book again when visiting Sarasota.
