The waterfront cottage, ‘La Casa Verde’ is a very luxurious and large four  bedroom canal front heated pool home with two very large bathrooms in approximately 2,800SF of air conditioned living space. As you approach the home you are immediately drawn into it by volumes of lush, lavish tropical foliage just as you envisioned your Florida experience would be.
Colorful seasonal flowers border both sides of the walkway entering the home and you soon find yourself beaming with happiness. You immediately notice the huge, spacious living room with high, voluminous ceilings and an enormous travertine fireplace. Original artwork abounds. Across the open entry and stepped down dining area, you look out beyond a wall of glass into the pool courtyard featuring lush, green tropical landscaping and flowers, all completely surrounded 180 degrees by the canals. You are simply amazed. Water, water everywhere….
Once inside, just off to your left, the home offers a beautiful and expansive kitchen with stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops and everything necessary to prepare your favorite gourmet meals. And most importantly, the entire kitchen opens up to the great room allowing everyone to be together in a wonderful family gathering.
Downstairs, each of the home’s dual master bedrooms feature comfortable king size beds [one can be converted by adjoined twins] while sharing a beautiful and spacious tile bathroom with a steeping tub-shower combination, marble counter tops, and tile floors. Upstairs you find an enormous sleeping loft with hardwood floors, three twin beds abutting another large master bedroom with yet again another king size bed.
The upstairs conjoined master bath features an oversized shower with twin individual sinks for your added convenience. There is an abundance of closet space and furnishings. Plenty of flat panels TVs are available for your enjoyment as well.
Outside, you’ll enjoy the huge pool surrounded by lush landscaping, flowers, beautiful landscape up lighting at night creating a magical pool environment. Underneath the big tree you’ll discover a truly inspiring hammock along with a special place for two, the overlook deck. Here you’ll sit and sip a glass of wine under the tree in a very private, special setting while gazing onto the canal or perhaps the snook light later in the evening. And there is always a cool breeze to enjoy.
Off to your right, you’ll find the dock, plenty of colorful adirondack chairs and a great place for fishing at night at the snook light. During the day, it’s the launching site for the kayaks that are there onsite and great fun for touring the neighborhood by water. You can also tie your boat up to the dock or arrange a pontoon boat rental from “The Black Pearl” (exclusive to our guests only!) for a portion of the week. We’ll be happy to assist. If you desire to explore the island, head to the beaches or just get some exercise, plenty of beach cruisers  await you in the garage. You simply will never run out of fun, family activities at the canal front ‘La Casa Verde’.
There is a 14 night minimum stay or 1 rental per 30 day period, per Sarasota, FL ordinance, contact us for more information.
La Casa Verde is a very luxurious and large four bedroom home on a canal. With a huge, spacious living room and high, voluminous ceilings this home abounds with original artwork complemented by an enormous travertine fireplace.
We spent a week at La Casa Verde in March and it was wonderful. Looks just like the photos. Floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the pool make the house bright and inviting as soon as you walk in. It is impeccably clean, modern and refreshing throughout. Beautiful grounds, and so many little lizards to spot here and there in the garden! Maybe even a tiny frog or two!
The kitchen is stocked with everything you need to enjoy every meal of the day, and there's a fantastic grill for cookouts by the pool (and a great grilling book if you need any ideas!). It's just great to sit outside with your food, or grab a book from the well-stocked shelves.
At this house, you can leave your car behind and walk or bike to everything you want in Siesta Key. There's a big cooler available to bring a picnic to the beach, which we preferred to do rather than being stuck inside restaurants on such beautiful days!
Explore the canals in the kayaks available! (Just don't get lost.) We guarantee you'll see different water birds and jumping fish on your kayak journey. Enjoy the phenomenal Siesta Beach sand, watch the pelicans dive, and be sure to stay for a sunset. We really loved Myakka River State Park, 30 minutes away by car, where you can spend the whole day enjoying Florida wildlife.
La Casa Verde would definitely be the place we'd come back to if we plan another trip to Siesta Key. The location is perfect, the house is so relaxing, and having a full kitchen is just so much better than a hotel, and you save a lot of money on restaurants! We would definitely recommend it to anyone we know.
We had a wonderful time at La Casa Verde. The house was perfect for our 3 generational family so everyone from 6 month old Maeda to Grampa Larry was comfortable. The location was perfect for a short walk to the village and beach. We love the extra amenities such as the stroller and tandem bike which made beach access so easy. We also enjoyed walking and riding through the residential areas, and seeing the back side of homes via kayaks on the canal. I cannot imagine staying anywhere else when in Siesta Key.
We stayed at La Casa Verde for our honeymoon and it was fantastic! What a wonderful, bright, open-plan house; just my style. Hardwood and tile throughout the house make it feel cool, clean and refreshing. The kitchen is great; it was stocked with every pot, pan and dish I could want.
The location is phenomenal-- on a quiet street just walking distance from all the action on the main drag, not to mention the beach. You'll never be in need of something to do; even on a rainy day. There are puzzles and cards to play with, the shelves are stocked with great books, and every bedroom has its own tv!
So many of the other rental houses we saw in the area were run-down, dated, and frankly looked depressing. La Casa Verde and its grounds are modern, bright, open and beautifully maintained. Just breathes calm and relaxation. Definitely a cut above the rest.
From our stay, we would recommend taking your breakfast outdoors to enjoy the morning air, going out on the canal in the kayaks, cruising the whole length of the beach on a bike, taking a night stroll, and catching the amazing sunset. For a day trip, we would recommend Myakka River State Park, only 30 minutes away. We were thrilled again and again with sightings of wild alligators, deer, hogs, turkeys, and so many different types of fishing birds and birds of prey.
Of course, you can't possibly avoid enjoying the amazing sand of Siesta Beach with its beautiful water and captivating diving pelicans. And venture out to the backyard canal at night to see all the fish illuminated by the underwater snook light.
You will sleep well, you will eat well, you will enjoy your stay. This house is the perfect companion to a vacation in Siesta Key. We would stay here again, and recommend it to our friends.
We loved our stay in this beautiful home! It was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed for our time in Siesta Keys. It is walking distance to the beach and many wonderful places to dine and shop. We also grilled out by the pool and enjoy the beauty of the canal and surroundings.
I would highly recommend this home for a family getaway.Check out the photos. It is even better than the photos. There is something for everyone to do.
We would recommend eating at The Cottage, Eat Here, The Salty Dog and a daily stop at the German Bakery!
Siesta Key Beach has been rated among the world's best beaches for many years. It was recently rated the No. 1 beach in the United States for 2011/2012 by Dr. Beach, and No. 1 by TripAdvisor in 2015!
