Description of the Sarasota vacation cottage rental
Starfish Cottage on Siesta Key is a small magical Island lying just off the coast of the City of Sarasota that can boast having the Number One beach in the entire United States as well as placing in the top twenty beaches in the entire world. And is it so popular with vacationing families…!

Just after you cross the North Bridge from the mainland onto fabulous Siesta Key and located in the coveted northern part of the Island among some of Siesta’s wealthiest homes lies a charming beach cottage called the “The Starfish Cottage.”

This newly remodeled and decorated cottage typifies the vintage beach cottages we always see in our mental image when considering a vacation at the beach. But this cottage is real…a beautiful yellow, single level five bedroom/four bath home. And as you would expect, The Starfish Cottage features a great pool surrounded by lush tropical Florida vegetation.

The circular paver drive beckons you into the privacy of the lush tropical grounds of this lovely 2700SF cottage with a metal standing seam roof. As you enter the entry door, you immediately note the beautiful old timey 2” hardwood floors throughout, the classic cased baseboards, ceiling moldings and window trim, tray ceilings, and a completely refinished kitchen with stainless equipment and sparkling granite counter tops with two sinks. The bathrooms are all bright and spotless with completely new fixtures, seamless shower doors, granite tops and tile floors.

Furnishings are tastefully done to capture the Florida cottage feel and are entirely colorful and completely new. The owners have done a spectacular job with décor and design insuring just the right sense of home here.

Please note there is an additional attached apartment suite. In this area, there is a Queen size bed, and the bathroom has a claw foot tub and shower head. There is also a separate kitchenette, with a refrigerator, microwave and sink. This area includes an enclosed sunroom. This part of the cottage is now included in the entire home, making Starfish Cottage a 5BR/4BA home!

This was our first visit to Siesta Key, and it was a great experience. Our guess at a nice rental was warded with good luck. The condo was i excellent condition, comfortable, quiet, and within easy walk of the restaurants, shopping and beach. And the beach is georgeous! White sand, soft waves, not at all crowded, inspire of peak season.
