About the property

STUDIO, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

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.

NEW TO SIESTA KEY ARE FREE TROLLYS THAT RUN FROM THE VILLAGE TO THE SOUTH END OF THE KEY.

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.

Perfect Siesta Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in the Surf Shack and loved it! Jim was very helpful and friendly. It's within walking distance to the beach and village, but has parking of its own if you take your car further into town so you never have to worry about finding a spot. The Shack is all you need for a nice, quiet place to rest between adventures on the Keys. We will certainly be back and will be renting from Jim in the future!

I would definitely stay here again!!

  • 5 of 5

I definitely recommend the surf shack!! It literally had everything we needed and more. Jim the owner was an absolute joy to work with!! After first booking through booking.com then cancelling after we found the surf shack through homeaway we found out how our vacation planning should have felt. Easy!! I seriously can't say enough.

Super Location!

  • 5 of 5

The Surf Shack was cute and perfect for our trip! Clean, centrally located, washer/dryer, fully stocked kitchen, comfy bed, fenced in yard. We walked to the Village, to the beach and across the street to fish off the pier. It was so fun! Jim is friendly and great to work with. The cabin is well shaded and stayed cool. Parking was convenient. The beach is stunning. Nice to have an outside grill. Every morning and evening we walked the dogs in the little neighborhood. Quiet and filled with cute mid-century homes. Just a wonderful trip. Thank you!

cozy & quiet

  • 5 of 5

Very nice and cozy. Good privacy. Walking distance to village and beach, and far enough away to not have to hear or see all the activity or traffic. Highly recommended.

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very good stay at the Surf Shack. It is a very comfortable place, well equipped, for two people and the location is excellent. It is not only near the center of town but also close to the beach, yet at the same time it is a very quiet and restful place, with a lovely outside seating area. We can definitely recommend this.

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!
