Parrot Beach Cottages located at 60 Avenida Veneccia Sarasota, FL 34242 on Siesta Key is literally steps from the water being just behind the Gulf/water front properties and walking distance to Siesta Key Village. A charming, cozy 4-suite beach vacation rental property, Parrot Beach Cottages consists of a 2-story building with four fully furnished small suites. There are three 1-bedroom suites, two with queen sleeper sofas and one efficiency suite. All suites have a small full kitchen. Our two upstairs 1-bedroom suites are ideal for a couple with up to two children (that can share a queen sleeper sofa). The suites are small, so if you are using the sleeper sofas, you would want to put them away during the day to use the living room. The maximum property sleeping capacity is 12 which would be renting all four suites with up to 8 adults (2 in each bed) and 4 small children (2 in each sleeper sofa bed). Suites 1 and 2 have a maximum sleeping capacity of two people. Suites 3 and 4 have a maximum sleeping capacity of four people total regardless of age. Each suite comes with 1-reserved off-street parking spot.
Suite 1 is an efficiency, located on the ground floor with a king bed, full separate room small kitchen and very small full bath (shower, no tub), includes 1-reserved off-street parking spot, and has the largest closet on property. Although Suite 1 is an efficiency, it may be the most spacious of all of the suites. Suite 2 is our smallest suite, a 1-bedroom/1-bathroom suite located on the ground floor with a queen bed, small full kitchen and full bath with shower and tub, one very small closet, includes 1-reserved off-street parking spot. Suite 3 is our largest 1-bedroom/1-bathroom suite located upstairs (12 steps), king bed, queen sleeper sofa, small full kitchen, full bath with shower only, two small closets, includes 1-reserved off-street parking spot, and a small deck outside the door (shared with Suite 4) with two chairs. Suite 4 is our second largest 1-bedroom/1-bathroom suite located upstairs (12 steps), queen bed, queen sleeper sofa, small full kitchen, full bath with shower and tub, one small closet, includes 1-reserved off-street parking spot, and a small deck outside the door (shared with Suite 3) with two chairs.
Just steps away from one of the top white sand beaches in the world, it's the perfect getaway. Enjoy spectacular sunsets, a romantic walk on the beach, or relax at the swimming pool. You're also a short walking distance from Siesta Key Village where you can enjoy shopping, restaurants, live music and more. Try your hand at kayaking, paddleboarding, parasailing, kite surfing, fishing and much more on the beautiful blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Or head into town to enjoy other local adventures, including the world-renowned Ringling Museum, the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens, Mote Marine, Jungle Gardens, outdoor shopping and dining on St. Armands Circle and other attractions.
Our area of the beach is a favorite for sun bathing, swimming, romantic sunset walks on the beach, small beach weddings, skim boarding, paddle boarding, kayaking, shore fishing, and more! Fishermen catch their bait right here and catch everything from Snapper to Mackerel to Snook and Jacks. Our location is within walking distance to rental businesses that rent everything from kayaks, paddle boards and bikes to video game systems, baby cribs and strollers! Due to how close our property is to the beach, a number of the rental places will bring kayaks, paddleboards and bikes right to the property and pick them up when you are done!
Guests love that we are truly walking distance to the beach and the Village and the more private feel to the beach by us since there is no nearby public parking and the road dead ends.

Location - Steps from America's #1 rated beach! Favorite spot for watching sunsets on the island! Walking distance to Siesta Key Village for restaurants, live music, and shopping. The private and more local feel to this area since the road dead ends and there is no nearby public parking. Once you're at the property you really don't need a vehicle since everything is truly walking distance from the beach to restaurants to a little grocery store, hardware store, drug store, post office and more! Our guests love that each suite is like a little fully furnished apartment and that there is only four total on the property, so it isn't as noisy and busy as a hotel, condominium, or large resort. Also, if you want to paddleboard, kayak, or bike the rental places will bring them right to you!
We are located directly behind the beach/Gulf front properties, so you get to stay right at the beach for a fraction of the cost of staying beach front!

We stayed in Unit 3. It was very clean and had everything we needed. The location is great, even closer to the beach than what the photos show. It is also very close to Siesta Key Village which has great restaurants and shops. Beautiful sunsets every night! The pool was small but very adequate for the guests. The access code entry was great- not having to remember a key. We loved the place and would recommend it to anyone! Thanks for sharing it!
We stayed in the smallest unit, but perfect for 2 adults. The location is great, just a 1 minute walk to the sandy beach (which is a quiet beach since there is no public parking at it), and 5 minute walk to town to various restaurants, shops, etc. We walked most nights to dinner. The unit and property was very clean, well maintained, and nice up to date furnishings and remodeling. My only comment would be that it would have been nice to have 2 TV trays in this unit since there really is no where to sit & eat. There were 2 stools, but the small counter top in Kitchen is really too small to sit & eat at. We used the stools as makeshift TV trays and sat on the sofa. Otherwise, it was a terrific unit, AC worked great. Even though we didn't use the pool, it was very clean. Around the back of property there are various beach "toys" and stuff to use (umbrellas, chairs, etc). I would definitely stay here again. Thank you for sharing your beautiful property with us!
If you love the beach and being close to restaurants, bars and shops, this location cannot be beat. My wife and I stayed in Suite 4 at Parrot Beach Cottages for a week in April 2015 and did not want to leave. We were only steps from the beach with chairs, towels and floats available for us to bring with us. Two blocks in the other direction was the town square with many great places to eat, drink and shop. Ours suite was clean and comfortable. Brad was also a tremendous help from the time we booked to our visit and even after our visit. He provided all the information we needed and was very quick to respond. We will definitely be back.
My husband and I stayed for 4 nights in September and had a wonderful time at Siesta Keys. The unit was a fantastically close distance to the beach, just a half block! Comfortable bed and cute unit. We didn't use the pool but did use the BBQ one evening. We should have checked the grill before we bought briquettes, there was a partial bag there. I appreciated the supply of beach chairs, umbrella and cooler for our days at the beach. Would I recommend this place to a friend, you bet!
What did you most enjoy about your stay?
The location of this property can't be beat, especially for the price. We parked our car and walked everywhere. It took us 100 steps from the condo door to get to the sand. The Village is about 3 blocks away. The only time we used the car was to go to Turtle Beach for the kayak trip.
Would you come back again or recommend this home to a friend?
Absolutely!! This was our second time on the island and this unit was much better located for our purpose.
Was the property a good fit for the group you were traveling with?
My husband and I were there alone so the size of unit 1 was perfect. The bathroom was a little tight but it wasn't a problem at all for us.
What nearby activities, attractions, or restaurants did you enjoy?
Eateries: Another Broken Egg was soooo good. The Local Bean Coffee Shop. SKOB. 314Pi.
Bike Rental: CaliFlorida Surf Shop
The BEACH was where we spent most of our time though.
What did the owner or property manager do to provide great customer service?
The emails before we were arrived were very helpful. Brad told us how much the tolls were and that helped a lot. We really didn't need to contact him during the stay at all. Changing the code on the door lock was easy. It was so nice to not have to worry about a key!! He even sent a pdf with everything the unit included. It was very helpful.
My only criticism is that the pool was freezing and I was wishing it was a hot tub instead. I'm guessing it wouldn't be an issue if you are there in a warmer month.
Otherwise, I can't wait to come back!! Thank you Brad.
The unit had everything we needed and was super close to the beach, dining, and nightlife. We parked our car in the reserved spot when we arrived and didn't need to drive anywhere until it was time to leave! The bed was comfy and the entire unit was very clean. The pool was small as described but there was enough room for all guests to relax if needed (we had it to ourselves during our stay). Beach chairs were supplied and a nice bonus not having to pack ours. Would love to stay again!
