About Derek

Canadian Snowbirds, recently retired from the Canadian Federal Government in Ottawa.

Derek purchased this bungalow in 2010

Why Derek chose Sarasota

We looked all around the Caribbean (eg Belize, Bahamas, Tobago), across SW USA (eg Santa Fe, NM, Sedona in Arizona) but we found nowhere to match the natural beauty, access to the Gulf, cultural sophistication and amenities of Siesta Key, it is a very special place, we love being there.

What makes this bungalow unique

The beach is 100 paces from our front door, dolphins often swim by and occasionally we see manatees. The beach is great for our grandchildren, I fish a lot off the beach or in my boat, I launch my kayak off the beach and paddle around the Key. The sunset out over the Gulf beyond Lido Key is a real treat I go most evenings, meet the neighbors and visitors. Our house is large, shaded in the palms and feels comfortable.

Book it!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two young children and I just got home from a fantastic week at the Shell Beach Cottage. The house is even better than the pictures. Each room is huge and there's a ton of room to spread out in the kitchen and living areas. The screened in lanai was wonderful for the evenings. We could enjoy being "outside" without the bugs. A heads up, there is a busy road on one side of the house so if you have light sleepers, put them in the bedroom nearest the living room. What truly made this a fantastic experience for us, though, was the owner and property manager. Not only did they provide us with all of the baby necessities we needed, but they even brought our kids some toys to play with while we were there! I can not say enough good things about the Shell Beach Cottage. The location was perfect, Shell Beach is beautiful and as always - Siesta Key is paradise!

Making Memories in Siesta Key!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous vacation at the Shell Beach Cottage. The property is situated in a garden setting, just a 2 minute walk from pristine Shell Beach. Our young adult children found plenty to do in the Village, 5 minutes away by car. We enjoyed The Daquiri Deck and The Beach Club. Olaf's Ice Cream is not to be missed. The July 4th fireworks on the "big beach" were phenomenal! The home is very comfortable and well-equipped. Our host provided superior customer service by ensuring all our needs were met. We highly recommend this lovely home to families seeking a memorable Florida stay!

Siesta paradise!

  • 5 of 5

The house was absolutely incredible! Will definitely be coming back! With just a few steps to a semi-private beautiful beach from where you can see beautiful sunsets. The house is equipped with everything you may need to have a great time with your family; from towels to games, to beach toys and beach chairs. It is only a short 5 minute drive to siesta village. Also a short 5 minute drive to public siesta beach which is also beautiful! Overall amazing stay and would recommend to any family looking to have a great vacation!

Amazing Property!

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week in paradise, just down the street from a nice, quite, white sandy beach.

Amazing fishing, saw dolphins daily. Awesome shopping in Sarasota.

Def visit the Blue Que for delicious food, great deals and live entertainment.

This is a perfect family getaway, fun for the whole family. The village is just a 2 minute drive, or short bike ride. The house is gorgeously renovated and has everything you need.
