Overview

About the property

One Bedroom and One Full Bathroom. Sleeps Two With Comfort

The Siesta Key Beach Cottage is located right on Beach Rd directly across the street from the #1 Beach in the USA. Walk out the front door and walk across the street to beach access #7 and you are on the white powder Beach of Siesta Key. You can look out the front window and see the Beach Access #7 sign.

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!!!!

Cottage Remodeled in 2011-Brand New Inside: The Siesta Key Beach Cottage has been completely remodeled in 2011. Everything inside in brand new.....everything. The outside has been repainted.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This beach cottage deserves 5 stars! The cottage and location are exactly as described...sweet, comfortable and safe. The cottage was very clean, welcoming and well-maintained. Easy access to Siesta Beach and Siesta Village. Beach cruisers were fun! The deck was private and roomy with a nice shower hose to wash the sand off. The rain shower head was wonderful and the bed was comfortable. The owner, Dave, was very helpful, responsive, provided insider info and recommendations as well as excellent customer service. I highly recommend this cottage as a sweet retreat.

Lovely property, beautifully maintained & decorated in a terrific location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific week in Siesta Key and thoroughly enjoyed this cottage. It is just the right size for 2 people. The amenities (plentiful towels, paper products, ice maker, HD television, laundry on site) were much appreciated. Location is ideal - across from the beach and a short walk to the village. We will be back!

Worth your stay in Siesta Key Village

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect place to experience the #1 beach in the USA and enjoy walking and/or biking to the village. No car needed. This place is decorated beautifully, furnished nicely and very clean. I especially enjoyed the enclosed deck, outdoor shower and riding one of the bikes everyday. I really couldn't ask for anything more. Dave is very easy to work with and willing to answer questions or deal with any problems that may come up. Thank you Kessels for sharing your cottage.

Excellent location, decor was very nice and clean.

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay, parking was very convenient. Well decorated, but could have used more cupboard space. The nights we used the furnace we noticed it was very loud and annoying.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. The kitchen cabinet space had just been updated days before the guests arrival. There are 6 cabinets in the kitchen. We added 5 more new shelves. Regarding the furnace being loud. There actually not a furnace. The AC unit has an air handler. The AC system is less than 4 months old. My wife and I stayed at the unit days before the guests arrival. There was not a noise issue. If the guest had contacted me regarding any issue that came up at the unit I would of had someone come take a look asap. However I did not receive notification of any issues while the guest was staying. We also updated the bedding and towels prior to the guests arrival. Thank you, Dave

Very comfortable , very clean, the best location

  • 4 of 5

We found this little jem online ... Not high end but really cool and totally functional ..... and we would recommend it to anyone that wants a beach house experience. Finished well with everything you need for your time in Siesta Key. Two small things that would have helped complete the house would be an ironing board and an exterior shower to wash off the sand after a day at the beach. Other than that it has it all... Even bikes to tour the area. Walk 10 minutes to many many restaurants and a grocery and liquor store... What more could you want !!! Book this for your trip you won't be disappointed By the way I gave it 4 stars because no one ever gets 5

Owner's Response: Appreciate the review and the suggestions. We had an outdoor shower installed on the back deck the week after you left. Ironing board is a great idea that we will take care of. Thank you

Siesta Santuary

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time my husband and I came to this lovely cottage and our return did not disappoint. The location is so ideal! Within seconds we are walking on the beautiful beach or riding the bikes along the shore. A quick walk and you're in town to satisfy your dining and shopping needs. The owners have continued to keep it clean and pristine. This is the perfect beach getaway, and I hope to come back again!

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
