Description from owner

This exquisite 4 Bedroom, 2.5 Bath expansive home, “The Riverfront Cottage” may well have the most fabulous waterfront vista of all off-island homes on Phillippi Creek, here in Sarasota. In an excellent location, only 2 miles or 7 minutes from the actual beach at Siesta Key’s south bridge, this home features a fabulous gourmet kitchen offering top-line stainless steel appliances and granite everywhere. The kitchen is huge and extremely well equipped, and opens up directly into the family living area as well as a unique outdoor dining area that accommodates eight or more.

The dining area is covered and well protected from any adverse weather conditions or wind allowing year round outdoor dining, a true joy in Florida. A multitude of glass doors slide open bringing the entire outside areas into the living areas making access and serving to the dining area both a pleasure and a true convenience.

The Riverfront Cottage offers two distinctive master suites on either end of the home, one with a King size and one with a Queen Size bed and with their own bathrooms. As you might expect all bedrooms are well appointed with top line furnishings and feature colorful décor. One of the Master Bedrooms features a unique floor to ceiling expansive glass shower enclosure that literally spills over into the bedroom while it offers an array of overhead showers and a wall of body wash/massage spouts as well. We’re absolutely certain you’ve never seen anything like it and most likely you’ll spend a great deal of time in this shower.

Two other bedrooms (both queen size beds) offer suitable well-appointed accommodations for adults or children while sharing a common hall bath. Just outdoors, you’ll find a fabulous curvilinear pool set within an absolutely enormous deck area. And an amazing full circle Tiki Bar offering a full thatched cover lighted for visual effects at night, along with everything necessary to enjoy the outdoors near the pool – HD TV, bar sink, refrigerator, dishwasher, coolers, grill…you name it. This is an entertainment paradise in paradise. And as if that’s not enough you can quietly sit at the Tiki Bar and look around where you’ll be mesmerized by the expansive estate-like manicured grounds filled with lawn and tropical vegetation flowing out to an enormous waterfront vista reminding you of exactly why you have already fallen in love with this lovely home.

At the far edge of the grounds is a boat dock allowing direct access to the expansive waterfront that offers boating and fishing for your family and friends. The Black Pearl pontoon folks will assist you with your personal dockside boating and paddle board needs during your stay if you like, just ask.

This is an amazing home at an amazing value. And we assure you that once you visit, you, your family and friends will return

“Loved our month of Feb. at Riverfront Cottage!”

Reviewed 16 Mar 2017

Our month of Feb. at Riverfront Cottage was heaven on earth!! The weather was perfect so we were able to open the wall of sliding doors out to the pool everyday. It made for a beautiful view of the pool and beyond the pool the lovely backyard and canal. The master bed was SO comfy and the shower in the master was awesome. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils and pots and pans, etc. The outdoor grill was much nicer than any grill we have had at home. Extra fridge in the garage was great! Family room had plenty of seating for TV watching and doing puzzles on the large coffee table. We love this location because it is close to grocery stores, shopping, restaurants, Siesta Key beach, boat rentals, etc., etc., etc. The rental company was very responsive with anything we needed and it was fun to walk in upon our arrival to find beautiful cupcakes on the kitchen island with a welcoming note for us. Nice touch!! Thank you for sharing your lovely cottage with us! xo The Rothsteins
