The Siesta Key Beach Cottage is located right on Beach Rd directly across the street from the #1 Beach in the USA.

If your looking for some lunch after a day at the beach walk out the front door of The Siesta Key Beach Cottage and head right up to the Village. There you will find any type of food you can imagine. If the sun has made you thirsty there are plenty of options to grab your favorite cocktail while listening to live music while sitting outside.

Take the beach cruiser bikes provided at the Beach Cottage and bike down to the north end of the beach. There you will reach an old concrete pier you can walk out on and watch sunset. Beach Cruisers are the best way to get around. Park the car and throw away the keys. Walk or bike around the Key........leave the car at the Beach Cottage!!!!

Our guest have the opportunity to work out for free at the Siesta Key Fitness Center. It's the only gym on the Key and within walking distance. Our membership at the gym also allows our guests to use the Fitness Center at no charge while staying at our place.

About Dave Kessel

Dave and Tricia Kessel. We are the owners of the Siesta Key beach cottage. We live down in Bonita Springs full time. Dave is from Michigan and Tricia from St Louis.

Dave Kessel purchased this Cottage in 2010

Why Dave Kessel chose Siesta Key

Dave has been coming to Siesta Key his whole life. He lived on the Key right out of college from 94 to 97. When Dave met Tricia they would drive up to Siesta Key for long weekend vacations. Then in 2010 the beach cottage went up for sale and the Kessel's made it theirs.

What makes this Cottage unique

One of the main benefits of the beach cottage is location. You can walk every where. The beach is across the street The Village is around the corner. Another benefit is the unit itself. It is continually updated inside. From towels to dishes to furniture.

                                                              Very cute cottage. Our favorite spot is the private deck for reading. Clean and thoughtful supplies. This is our second year and we will be back next year.

                                                              Cozy cottage

                                                              Very nice cottage style unit; great location.

                                                              We loved it!,

                                                              This is was our second year staying at Siesta Shores and it was wonderful! We have already booked another three weeks for next year! The owner Dave Kessel is very professional and helpful. I would recommend this rental highly!


                                                              Great place to stay in Siesta Key

                                                              We just returned from a two week stay at Siesta Key. It was our best vacation ever. The only problem I had was getting my wife to leave. From the minute we arrived until we left, my wife must have said "I love this cottage" about 100 times. She now wants me to remodel my "Man Cave" to look the same.The location is perfect. It is an easy walk to the beach and an easy walk to Siesta Village. Dave provided great recommendations for places to eat and we tried them all. On cool windy days, the private deck was great.

                                                              This trip was to celebrate my recent retirement. My wife retires next year and I am sure we will be back.

                                                              Quaint and comfortable.

                                                              Couldn't control the cold weather during our stay, but The Crecent Moon was warm and comfortable. Location to beach, good food and St. Augustine were great.

                                                              Siesta Key is home to the #1 beach in the United States. The beach is approximately 6 miles long of powder white sand. Every day hundreds of walkers, joggers, bike riders pass by on the water's edge. Along the beach there are a variety of sea birds such as egret, sandpiper, herons and of course sea gulls. Many days dolphins can be seen feeding and playing just off the beach along with the occasional manatee. The Gulf of Mexico shallow depths make it a very popular beach as walking hundreds of feet offshore the depth barely reaches six feet. The water's colors look like your in the Caribbean. Right around the corner is the Village. Take a walk down Beach Rd to Ocean Blvd and experience Seista Key Village. You will find restaurants, bars, coffee houses, ice cream, shopping, or just great people watching. The Village has a very laid back atmosphere. Shorts, t-shirt, and flip flops are the preferred attire. Other Activities: parasailing
