Imagine being nestled in a key west style unit which is fully furnished turn key just a few minutes walk to pristine Siesta key beach and the hopping Siesta key village. The Surf Shack has its own unique entrance through the driveway and privacy fence. The cottage has everything you need to enjoy yourself. Full kitchen, bath with fiberglass shower, outside hot and cold shower when you come back from the beach. Wall air conditioner, wall fan, stacked washer/dryer, FRONTIER Fios High definition TV and wireless internet. I also have Apple TV which you can stream your own NETFLIX and other venues.

Enjoy my private dock to fish, crab, or launch a kayak if you like. At sunset, stroll up to the beach to watch the amazing sunsets every night. Go enjoy a huge cone at Big Olafs or oysters and a beer at Siesta Key Oyster Bar. There are lots of great restaurants and shops all over the village. They are all just a short walk or quick ride by bike.

There is outdoor patio furniture and a gas grill all under a huge oak tree. This is island living at its best. Note.

About Jim Bucci

Retired Verizon/GTE/Bell . I have been in the rental business for 30+ years.

Jim Bucci purchased this studio in 1980

Why Jim Bucci chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

Originally lived out here but needed more space.... loved the location to the beach and near the heart of the village.

What makes this studio unique

Close to everything, private dock, very private location.. Outside h/c shower for returning from the beach. Solar outdoor led umbrella, patio set with grill and lounge chairs.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Loved the quaintness of the cottage. It was real convenient to Siesta village and beach ascess 4. I wanted for nothing for my stay. Weather could have been more cooperative. Liked Sarasota so much, came down a month later and bought a home in Gulf Gate.

Great cottage

  • 5 of 5

I can't recommend this place highly enough. The cottage is very well laid out, with a useable kitchen area, including a full sized refrigerator, a small but full bathroom and large closet. The owner also provides a washer dryer, outdoor gas grill and a fenced in yard that my dog thoroughly enjoyed. It has plenty of privacy from the street and a close enough proximity to town to be ideal. The beach is a comfortable walk away. It is also very reasonably priced for the value. The owner is a pleasure to deal with. If you have any requests he will try to accommodate you. We'll be coming back next year!

Cutest place in paradise

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at the SurfShack on 3-4 different occasions, I love it and I think you will as well. Jim is wonderful and has provided everything that you possibly need for a great get away! The cottage is so cute, comfortable and close to the beach, restaurants, drug store etc. I have had a car there in the past, but, honestly you don't need one of you plan on just staying on the key. Usually just ride my bike to the beach or call for free ride (just give them tips). It's a great service, brings you door to door morning, afternoon or night! Beach chairs, cooler, towels, sheets, washer, dryer..etc are provided. There are two great areas to lounge if you don't feel like going to the beach.. on the canal or in the yard which has privacy. Make dinner there, cook out on the grill, or just a short walk to many great restaurants, bars, ice cream shops! ,Honestly, Jim has remembered everything. Just pack your bags and relax. The only problem with me writting this.. Is now it may not be available when I want to go back! LOL. Enjoy your trip to paradise!

Hidden Treasure!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from a weeks stay in the Surf Shack. We were very comfortable, everything we needed was there. We had perfect weather the whole week and rode the two bikes into the village and the beach every day!

Jim was very attentive to our needs, came and worked on the bikes and made sure we were happy with everything.

Would recommend this property to couples looking for a great little getaway near the most beautiful beach!

Thanks Jim...we'll be back!

Perfect location, cozy accomodations!

  • 5 of 5

The Surf Shack was perfect for our vacation to Siesta Key/Sarasota. The property is in great shape, the Murphy bed was super comfy (and we are both very tall!) and the bikes meant that we avoided all that crazy Key traffic! We used the bikes a ton and they made getting around super convenient and the extra exercise was appreciated too. The location is private, comfortable and it's a great deal. Thank you, Surf Shack!

The Surf Shack is an exceptional studio; clean, modern and an ideal location where you can walk or bike to the #1 USA beach on Siesta Key. 2 blochas ks from shopping and restaurants too. Quiet, private yard - well landscaped. The Surf Shack also has acess to a private new dock on one of Siesta Key's major canals - right across the street. The sudio is well decorated and open. The unit has a nice stacker washer/dryer. The studio is 100% tile floors. WI-FI access and hundreds of cable channels. The murphy baed is very comfy and easily opens/closes. The sofa bed pulls out to acccomodate an adult of small kids too. THe kitchen is modern, clean and has all utinsels and appliances. I will stay here again on my next trip back to Sarasota.

Tumbleweed

  • 5 of 5

This Surf Shack studio is a super place for one of two people (also can accomodate a couple small children) on a pull-out sofa. It has a great location - walking distance to USA's #1 beach - Siesta Key Beach and also to Siesta Key Village (shopping and restaurants). The owner, Jim, has bicycles on property to scoot around the Key too. The facility is modern, well decorated and very clean. The Murphy bed is extremely comfortable and easily pulls up or down to gain more space. Outside there is a very private, large, fenced yard. The entire area is nicely landscaped. There are automatic privacy lights down the walkway. Ample off-street parkeing for 1 or 2 cars. The property also has a nice, new, private deck area on one of the Key's primary canals. Enjoy reading or watching Florida's varied wildlife. The studio is equipped with WI-FI and hundreds of cable channels. The setting is quiet and you'll sleep well every night. I'll be staying at the Surf Shack again on my next trip back to Sarasota! I'm originally from Sarasota area and know the location of this unit to be superior. The Surf Shack is also is a super value.
