About Bill Burns

The owners, Bill and Molly bought their first triplex on Calle Miramar in '89. They've lived on Siesta Key ever since then and are very familiar with all that Sarasota has to offer.

Bill Burns purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Bill Burns chose Siesta Key

The Siesta Key Blue Cottage is the second property we've owned on Calle Miramar. It's a sought after location just 1/2 block to both the Beach and the Village. Built in 1949, it has withstood the test of time and is one of the few remaining examples on Siesta Key of the Florida Bungalow.

What makes this cottage unique

Unique benefits to this property are it is a ground floor, one floor housing unit. No flights of stairs to haul your bags up. An easy walk with a chair and beach towel gets you to the quieter end of Siesta Beach without trying to find parking! And it's a short walk, not a drive or ride, into Siesta Village where you have many restaurants to choose from. Location, location, location.

Well maintained and clean!

It was very convenient due to the location which was right next to the beach and restaurants. Made us feel like we were at home.

Always a pleasure!

  • 5 of 5

A convenient location, well maintained, a real home away from home. Bill and Molly provide their guests with everything they may need, even laundry soap! As a rental property owner myself, I am duly impressed.

Loved this cottage and location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cottage! It was impeccably clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. The bed was really comfortable and the washer and dryer were a bonus. It is just a short walk to the beach where you can sunbathe with a variety of birds and enjoy magnificent sunsets! Bill Burns was a wonderful host. We would absolutely stay there again!

My fiancé and I spent 8 days in the Blue Cottage and loved every bit of it! It's so close to both the beach and the village but far enough where you don't hear any noise at night. The cottage is well kept and is very spacious for being a 1 bedroom. I really can't say enough wonderful things about tis place. 5 stars all the way!

Fabulous vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just spent a week in this lovely cottage and could not have asked for a better experience. The location is perfect, the home is well equipped and super clean, the king size bed is very comfy and the owners are wonderful . We appreciated all the little extras, such as beach chairs, on-site washer/dryer, large, soft bath towels, flashlight and rain umbrella. We loved staying here and look forward to a return visit next year!
