Description from owner

Oh what a great feeling you get when you are looking out over the pool to the relaxing waters of the Grand Canal. This home is special with 188 ft. of canal wrapping the back of the home so you get to enjoy the views from three bedrooms, the kitchen, living and dinning areas. Open all the patio doors to feel the tropical breeze and get into that relaxed Florida vacation lifestyle. This home has been totally updated with quality features. It is a four bedroom with four deluxe bathrooms.Heated lagoon style pool and spa with travertine marble patio decking makes the outside area very enjoyable. There is an built in BBQ area on the screened lanai. Very stylish and comfortable.

This home is in a fine neighborhood that is just behind Siesta Key Beach! It is at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac and quiet interior island street. A true coastal neighborhood across from Siesta Key Beach. The entrance leads you through the double doors revealing a wonderful open plan, great for entertaining. The kitchen has a pass through window that allows you to enjoy your guests and family while they sit on the lanai or swim in the pool or enjoying the spa. Almost every room in the house has a water view down the Grand Canal. There are nice patios to sit and enjoy the sunshine and tropical breeze.

The master bedroom has a king bed, dual head shower and double vanities, and views of the pool/canal with access out the patio door to the lanai. It is set apart from the other bedrooms. There are two other bedroom suites with king beds and they share a large bathroom with shower and double vanity. The forth bedroom, which is on the opposite side of the house, has a queen bed, with a bathroom and shower, it has access to the lanai and pool. This is a fabulous home for family gatherings and all on one level, with no stairs other then a 4 inch step in and out of the house making it easy to get around for seniors with light disabilities.

It is about a mile walk to Siesta Key Village or take the free trolley or tip taxi's(large golf carts and vans) that are available with a quick call, they pick you up and take you anywhere you would like to go on the key for a tip. This home is just a short 1.5 blocks to the main entrance of Siesta Key Public Beach which is always rated near the top of all the beaches in the United States, if not #1 by many beach rating editors. It has crystal white quartz sand that is the best that I have ever seen, cool to the feet and wonderful to take those leisurely walks on the beach or lay on the puffy white sand looking out to the turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

For the golfers out there you can choose from many courses, public to TPC, all within 15 to 40 minutes. The shopping is fabulous with the premium outlets or the new high end UTC mall on University and I-75 or the St. Armand Circle's European style shopping and dinning area. Visit downtown which has old style charm with quality restaurants, theater and night life. The Siesta Key Village is laid back with outside dinning, entertainment and shopping and some of the best little breakfast places around.

Sarasota is a unique area giving the traveler a taste of many cultural and unique venues to enjoy. You can call me anytime for suggestions on where to take your family or group out for an enjoyable day or evening, it would be my pleasure! I hope I can help you with your travel accommodations at this location or in one of the many fine properties that I have to rent, some beach front, some for the large family or a couple needing only a one bedroom condo near the beach. You will not be disappointed as all are very well kept and have many more amenities then the typical rentals you will find on the key. I am available for any questions by email through this site.

About the area

Sarasota is one of the premier communities along the Gulf Coast. It offers something for everyone, in a quality that many Florida towns are not as fortunate to offer to the visitors looking for a quality area. See the Sarasota chamber of commerce site or Siesta Key Chamber of Commerce site. Siesta Village is about 1.5 miles. Many restaurants to choose from, I can give you suggestions if you would like.

Getting around

Tip Taxi, Bike, or rent an automobile. There is bus service 2.5 blocks from the home plus the free Siesta Breeze Trolley the runs up and down the key. Sarasota has a lot to offer besides the beach so if you have a car available or use popular transport services then getting to all our other attractions available to you.

Getting here

Interstate 75 to Clark Road exit, go west towards Siesta Beach, over bridge then right on Midnight Pass, next left on Shadowlawn Way, left again, then right on Contento, over bridge, right the quick left on Contento Cr. to end of street.

Interaction with guest

I am usually available in a very short time or a reasonable time for any problems that might happen. You can email me to get my thoughts on restaurants for special occasions.

“Perfect Siesta Key property”

Reviewed 10 Jun 2016

10 adults stayed at this property for a week and could not fault it. The Villa and pool area are fantastic. Walking distance to the bars.

“Absolutely beautiful house! Immaculate!”

Reviewed 11 Aug 2015

We stayed at this beautiful home for two weeks in July. Home was more beautiful than pictures portrayed. I've never stayed in a house that was as immaculate and well stocked as this one. We rent all over the country and this was one of our most favorite homes. House had 3 bedrooms and a fourth office/bedroom with fold out couch and desk. Bedrooms were lovely, each with a TV. King suite was lovely. the views of the canal were just gorgeous as you can enjoy the view from just about every room that faces back of house. Pool area was immaculate, beautifully lit at night, and serviced weekly. Broker for this house David Butler, was very helpful and answered all questions, very reachable in case I had questions (sorry David for any inconveniences I caused). House was pet friendly which was an added plus. Only drawbacks were these. I wanted a home where we could walk to beach and this I was told was just 3.5 blocks from beach. I'm sure that was correct, however, with the heat, and your gear, it was not walkable. Parking was limited at public beach as they are expanding parking lot so unfortunately we couldn't get a spot on the weekend. that was disappointing because Siesta Key Beach is lovely. The other issue was the mattress on the fold out couch. My sister came to visit for 3 days and left hunched over and in pain, terrible mattress. Despite those issues I still would love to come back next year, if available. maybe for 3 weeks. Very happy with my choice, the house and with the broker. Thank you David.
