May 2024

Situated on the white beaches of Florida’s Gulf Coast — where sunshine-and-sandals weather is practically a year-round affair — the city of Sarasota blends rich history with a bustling contemporary arts scene, a plethora of natural attractions and a variety of mouthwatering culinary destinations.

From the elegant galleries housing the work of Peter Paul Rubens and Diego Velázquez in the Ringling Museum of Art, to the eclectic downtown communities where walls are colored with vibrant murals by internationally hailed street artists, it is no stretch of the imagination to see why Sarasota is ranked among the top small cities for the arts in the United States.

Nature lovers will also feel right at home kayaking through the mangroves in the Intracoastal Waterway, soaking up the sun on the city’s pristine Siesta and Lido Key beaches and taking in the sights and sounds of protected wildlife along Sarasota’s hiking and biking trails.

Once you’ve worked up a hearty appetite from exploring the city and the abundant natural attractions on its outskirts, Sarasota’s diverse culinary scene is sure to satisfy. From Southern comfort food favorites like fall-off-the-bone barbecue to adventurous gourmet dishes and artfully mixed cocktails, every taste bud will be delighted during your trip to Sarasota — so bring your appetite.

Situated on the Southwest Gulf coast south of Clearwater Beach, Siesta Key is a barrier island just off the mainland city of Sarasota.

Siesta Key Beach was twice named the nation's best beach with 8-miles of brilliant quartz sand and turquoise waterfront. For such a small area, this little Key is big on shopping, dining, and nightlife with waterfront amenities. Whether you're looking for a fun vacation with the kids or a romantic trip for two, Siesta Key offers something for everyone.

Siesta Key hosts a variety of festivals and events year-round like the unique Chalk Festival with 3D pavement artwork delighting visitors. There is also a Siesta Beach Seafood and Music Festival, Sand Sculpting Festival, and more that draw visitors to relax and enjoy the fun in spacious rentals.

The heart of Siesta Key is known as The Village, which is a collection of shops, stores, restaurants, and bars. Finding a place to park in this area can be difficult in the busy season, but our homes are mostly within walking distance, so you don’t have to worry.

There’s even a grocery store, and the first trolley stop lets visitors on and off right out front. The further south you travel from the Village, the more condos and residential areas you’ll pass. But plenty of people like to ride the free trolley just for the experience and to visit all the other Siesta Key beaches.

Experience the epitome of relaxation and adventure at the Siesta Key Canal-front Retreat. Perfect for a family getaway, this charming retreat offers everything you need for an unforgettable holiday.

As you arrive at this private oasis, you will be delighted by the sight of a heated saltwater pool, inviting you to take a refreshing dip or bask in the warm Florida sun. The expansive deck provides ample space for lounging, while a cozy fire pit beckons for evenings spent under the stars.

For the four-legged members of the family, this property is a dream come true with its dog-friendly amenities and easy access to the outdoors. Take a leisurely stroll to the nearby beach or explore the vibrant Siesta Village, where an array of bars, shops, and dining options await.

Outdoor enthusiasts will delight in the array of activities at their fingertips, from kayaking and paddle boarding along the scenic waterways to cruising around the key on provided bicycles. Launch from the private boat dock and set off on aquatic adventures, or simply relax on the shaded waterfront deck with a cold drink in hand.

Inside, the inviting interior boasts modern comforts and conveniences, including a fully equipped and renovated kitchen, central air-conditioning, free WiFi, and a private washer/dryer for added convenience. Stay entertained with a Peloton bike for your workout routines and unwind in the evenings with a movie on the mounted smart TV.

With its unbeatable location and impressive amenities, this canal-front retreat promises a vacation filled with relaxation, adventure, and cherished memories for the whole family.
