Description from owner

The Grand Canal Cottage, perhaps one of Siesta Key’s favorite luxury vacation homes, is a highly landscaped canal-front private luxury home featuring a heated pool with sun shelf and a separate 8-person spa. It is situated on Siesta Key on the beach side of the canal system within two easy walking blocks of the world’s most beautiful white sand beach and only a short walk to the village.

This home features five tastefully decorated bedrooms and four full bathrooms that can accommodate up to twelve, along with a true gourmet kitchen featuring a six-burner gas Viking double range, a Miele dishwasher, an under counter wine cooler and a stainless steel Traulsen commercial refrigerator/cooler with glass doors. Cooking utensils, glassware, tableware and serving dishes/plates are all upscale and extensive. Seating for 10 at the dining table and 4 at the bar counter makes dining together easy.

This fabulous home is very convenient to the Village, the main Siesta Key beach and the city of Sarasota which offers world-class restaurants, sidewalk cafes, many theaters, art galleries, opera, museums, specialty shops, boutiques and nightlife. The Grand Canal Cottage resides in a canopy of Oak trees and features an abundance of fruit trees, palm trees, flowers, a huge brick paver waterside terrace, outside dining for eight, an outdoor grill, comfortable seating for everyone to include 4 oversized cushioned rockers, a heated pool along with a separate heated 8-person spa, 2 kayaks, 6 bicycles, a fishing dock with an underwater fish light and great fishing, a couple of outdoor showers garage, and an oversized parking paver driveway. You can even dock your pontoon rental boat right at you own dock if you so desire. Everything you could ask for when on an Island vacation.

The ground level Master Suite is very large with two comfortable swivel chairs, a writing desk with computer, overhead fan, a triple slider offering a wonderful view of the waterfront, a wall mounted flat panel TV, bamboo floors and a very comfortable King size bed [sleeps 2]. The bath is travertine and includes a very nice shower with glass enclosure, an oversize steeping bath and dual sinks.

The 2nd bedroom features another king size bed [sleeps 2], wall mounted flat panel TV, leather recliner, overhead fan along with other nice furnishings and linens. The third bedroom has 1 queen bed [sleeps 2] with a Stressless leather recliner, wood floors, overhead fan, nice furnishings and linens, and a wall mounted flat panel TV.

The 4th bedroom and 5th bedrooms are located in a separate guest suite immediately adjacent to the main cottage. The lower Bedroom 4 features two full beds [sleeps 4] and a private full bathroom uniquely elevated along with a private outdoor terrace. It additionally offers a leather recliner, nice furnishings, a simulated wood fireplace, hardwood floors, beaded ceiling wainscot, and an overhead fan. It’s extremely nice. Also located in the guest suite building is a new oversized washer and dryer. Upstairs you’ll find Bedroom 5 which offers a queen bed [sleeps 2] and features a private outdoor elevated deck, full tile bath, overhead fan, hardwood floors, kitchenette with fridge, microwave amd bar sink, a wall mounted flat panel TV, simulated fireplace heating system, and a high ceiling with fan. The downstairs suite features its own full bathroom and a private terrace for outdoor seating space.

In short, this perfect vacation home offers so much more. But everyone always comments on the gourmet kitchen, the huge outdoor terrace with pool and spa, the underwater snook light bringing hundreds of fish right to the dock every night, terrific fishing off the lower waterfront deck at night, the canal front location and the nearby village. Don’t forget to ask your reservationists to arrange a pontoon boat rental from "The Black Pearl" (exclusive to our guests only!) for a portion of the week. You’ll be amazed with the Grand Canal, everyone is and never a negative comment from any guest in over 7 years!


There is a 14 night minimum stay or 1 rental per 30 day period, per Sarasota, FL ordinance, contact us for more information.

About the area

Siesta Key Village is approximately 1 mile north of Avenida Del Mare. A leisure walk will get you there in 15 minutes. Plenty of restaurants, shops and night spots. Florida is known for its beaches, climate and foliage so this home features on its grounds an amazing amount of lavish tropical foliage to include many flower species as well as many fruit tree varieties. If you like plants and nature, you’ll love the grounds [almost like a botanical garden]. ​
