About The Stafford Family

I am from the Ohio Valley where the summers are beautiful but in the long winter months I yearn for the sunshine and the sound of the surf. This is where I take my beautiful family to create memories to last a lifetime.

The Stafford Family purchased this house in 2010

Why The Stafford Family chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

I have always vacationed here as I was growing up. I love the street our home is on, its a great location. When one of the properties came available we did what we had to do to get it. Once we bought it, my wife and I pretty much fixed it up to make it our second home.

What makes this house unique

There is just so much land between the mainland and the Gulf of Mexico. Our little piece of heaven is within walking distance to the beach, restaurants, bars, marina and the post office. We are just south of the south bridge. All the traffic is North of the bridge. It's a more peaceful vacation if I don't have to fight the traffic everyday. If we want to go into the Village of Siesta which the entire island is only 8 miles long, we can take a free taxi (Volkswagon Thing!) that runs 7 days a week. (We tip of course!)

Phenomenal Florida home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I escaped a cold, wet week in Ohio to the beauty of Siesta Key. Our expectations weren't high but walking in to the home on Peacock Road immediately transported us to instant relaxation. The home is light, airy, comfortable, impecably clean and has anything you need to feel pampered and well taken care of. The kitchen was wonderful and a quick drive up to Walt's Fish Market and we were dining on fresh clams and scallops on the back patio pool side! Bikes and beach carts in the garage make the atmosphere so much more enjoyable. We even got to see a wedding proposal on the beach via a drone and floating diamond ring brought down from the sky to the lucky couple. How cool was that! I would recommend this property to anyone wanting the Siesta Key beach vacation with all the comforts (and more) of home!

Best Kept Secret

  • 5 of 5

Very nice and very clean with an excellent location. Perfect for couples and/or families and well equipped for beach lovers. The location of the cottage allows you to be as adventurous as you want or can simply relax and hit the beach a short walk away. Plenty of personal space including a relaxing sun room overlooking the canal. Kitchen, bathrooms, and bedrooms have everything you need for a lengthy stay. This is one of the best places I have stayed at in Siesta Key and look forward to returning regularly.

Florida Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I have nothing but great things to say about this cottage. First, Siesta Key is an amazingly beautiful city. There are endless things to do with never enough time to do it all. The cottage was the icing on the cake for a fantastic week. The place was spotless with plenty of ammentities. The master shower is spacious. There is plenty of drawer and closet space for all of your clothes and personal belongings. The living room is very large with high vaulted ceilings. The house is decorated very nicely as well. The kitchen is all new and very clean. Sun room to the back patio is ideal for a quick lounge and keep beach clothing. The view from the back is very pretty with a canal that screams to be kayaked. Overall, the place is an awesome getaway. Everything is new and clean and is larger than what you originally think. I would recommend it to anyone I know and hope to go back again sooner than later.
