Description of the Sarasota vacation cottage rental
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," The Cottages newest addition. 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 four bedroom/three bath home. And as you would expect, The Starfish Cottage features a great pool surrounded by lush tropical Florida vegetation. A 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 from the huge screened porch, you immediately note the beautiful 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 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. You enjoy every moment you spend within the home as well as the convenience this location offers for accessing the beaches, village and the City of Sarasota. You’re virtually minutes away from everything both on and off the Island – the literal best of both worlds. To the west lies the North Village filled with restaurants, shops and pleasurable experiences. South west following Midnight Pass lies the main beaches of Siesta Key which offer an 800-space parking lot that will virtually double in July of 2014. Here you find lifeguard stands, picnic tables, restroom and dining facilities. Everything to make your beach experience so pleasurable not to mention the football field wide sparkling white beach abutting clear, azure waters. To the east back across the Siesta Drive Bridge to the mainland lies all of the shops, restaurants, food stores, art galleries, sidewalk cafes, live theaters, shopping centers and so much more offered by the City of Sarasota. And all accessible by bicycles [furnished with this cottage], free taxi’s that offer their convenient service at any time all over the Island of Siesta Key, or car with plenty of beach parking or downtown parking availability. You’re sure to love this cottage and all it offers; it’s northern location on the key and certainly everything about Siesta Key and Sarasota. Welcome home to this stunning beach cottage.

***Please note there is an additional attached apartment suite (with a lockout door separation between both house and apartment) that is rented annually. This part of the home is excluded from the rental.)

Siesta Key

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.
