Overview

Siesta Key Cottage Rental Photos and Description

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.

OUTSTANDING SIESTA KEY BEACH COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently enjoyed our 5th stay at this incredible Siesta Key beach cottage. Located right on Beach Road and across the street from the beach access, you are only a ten minute walk into the village. Could not be more convenient! The cottage is nicely decorated with a great beach cottage "vibe". We can attest to the fact that the owners update the furniture and linens regularly, always with improvements. The one bedroom cottage is absolutely perfect for any couple looking for a relaxing and user friendly getaway. The place is always clean and smells fresh! The two beach bicycles are also a nice touch. And they provide two sturdy, comfortable Tommy Bahama beach chairs, usually brand new every season, as well as an umbrella, beach towels in abundance, and a cooler for the beach. The owner is also incredibly available and very much attuned to the renters needs and requests. What more can i say, other than we love it!

BREATHTAKING!

  • 5 of 5

When we walked into our rental it took our breath away! It was so beautiful, and decorated so cute! The cottage is a perfect walk to the beach, and we loved how there were chairs and a umbrella that we could use. The walk to downtown is literally not even five minutes. We would do dinner downtown every night and then come back and play checkers on the porch. It was a wonderful vacation thanks to the Kessel's. I have been recommending this place to everyone I know! Cannot say enough good things about this place. Thank you for a wonderful vacation, we will be back!

Wonderful Beach Cottage Get-Away!

  • 5 of 5

On our return visit, Siesta Key and the cottage were every bit as wonderful as we remembered them. The location is perfect -- quick walk to the beach, fun shops, and great restaurants. Dave has always been a pleasure to work with and is very accommodating. The cottage is beautifully decorated, clean, and stocked with helpful amenities. We hope to return for another stay!

Perfect vacation rental and outstanding location

  • 5 of 5

This vacation cottage is lovely , and the location couldn't be better. As other reviews have stated, the beach access is just across the street, and the home has everything that a couple would need for a relaxing get-away. The central air went out while we were there, and Dave responded immediately to our call. It was fixed by the next day, and he graciously gave us a credit for the inconvenience, although it wasn't really necessary. This home is within close walking distance to the village, which has limited parking and becomes quite congested with traffic in the evenings. If you are thinking of coming to Siesta Key, I would highly recommend this rental. You won't be disappointed.

Jewel Box in Siesta

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just spent 3 glorious weeks in this perfect little cottage! It was our little home away from home, and we were SO sad to leave. It was clean, organized, and adorably decorated! You can't beat the location. You are right across from access to the most BEAUTIFUL beach. We enjoyed MANY long walks, and bike rides in our cruisers. I also loved how close it is to the Village. SO convenient! I will miss having breakfast on the porch with the warm morning sun. We intend to return next year. I can hardly wait!

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
