Need a Beach Getaway?

From your penthouse in the sky, have you been dreaming about the beach?

It's getting to be that time of year... The best time of year for the beach!  Downtown, we are fortunate to be just across the bridge from Lido Beach and a short drive to many others: Siesta, Longboat, Turtle, Venice, Nokomis, and Anna Maria just to name a few.  Ideal beach-weather time is also synonymous with tourist season, however, so driving, traffic, and parking can be a deterrent to visiting some of the best beaches in the world.  Have you been thinking it might time to get a place on the beach, if only so that you don't have to deal with St. Armands traffic on the way to the sand and sea?  What if I told you we have a perfect island getaway/guest house/monthly rental property on the market right now that is WALKING DISTANCE to the #1 beach in the U.S.?  

And when we say close...

We mean CLOSE!  Check out the location of the cutest Key West-style beach house in Siesta Key Village!

For yourself...

Imagine it:  You wake up, grab your towel, and walk two minutes to the pedestrian-only public beach access #11, a quiet entrance away from the bustle of the busiest part of the beach.  Your feet are on the warm sand before most people have finished making their coffee.  You flatten your towel over the powdered sugar sand and sip from your travel mug as you watch the soft waves of the Gulf of Mexico bring in the tide.  Later when you are finished sunning, you take the short walk to the Village for some lunch.  What could be better?

For investment...

Picture it: You own an adorable beach house, minutes from one of the most desirable vacation destinations in the world.  You have the option to rent it out on a monthly basis so other families can enjoy living the beach life for a moment in time before they head back to work.  Your in-laws come to visit and now can stay comfortably out-of-reach at the beach but within almost eyesight of the shops and restaurants of Siesta Key Village.  And if you need a mini-vacation yourself?  Take a long weekend (or a month, we're not judging) for a break from the city at the doorstep of the ocean.

Three spacious bedrooms (one is an en-suite master) let in ample light and are set right in the canopy of the palms surrounding the property, lending a nostalgic treehouse vibe.

The private, fully-fenced backyard is the perfect oasis for those who prefer pools and sunshine to seawater & sand.  It's very spacious, with a lot of room to gather friends or to just relax next to the pool while the quiet sways of the palms put you to sleep.
