SIESTA KEY COTTAGE EBB TIDE #1 w pool & beach access

Bedrooms 1
Space 480 sq. ft.
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


About the property

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps 3-4 (Queen bed and sleeper sofa, full size)

If you're looking for a great vacation getaway and prefer the style of a single-story cottage over a high-rise condo, you've found your place! This bright, one bedroom, end-unit is fully equipped, and just 150 yards from the beach.

We have a beautiful, large, heated, salt-water pool and our own private, gated access to world renowned Crescent Beach. Both the pool and the beach access are just a 3 minute walk from the cottage door down the side street.

Very clean, bright and airy, the cottage offers many amenities including a fully equipped kitchen, all linens including beach towels, and wireless internet.

Out the back door, you'll find a garden patio. Complete with comfortable furniture, an umbrella for shade, a BBQ, and a hose for washing off the sand, the patio provides the perfect spot for that morning cup of coffee... or your evening glass of wine. Relax amid flowers, birds and butterflies. It's casual, beach living at its best!

It's All Here! Everything you need for a relaxing and fun vacation at the beach is included: Wireless internet, TV & DVD, fully equipped kitchen, quality linens including beach towels, hair dryer, laundry facilities, parking at your front door, folding beach chairs, beach cooler, and kids beach toys.

Restaurants and shops are within easy walking distance. There's a bike and boat rental shop across the street. And the lively Siesta Key Village with its quaint shops and music scene is just a quick drive up the road. Just over the bridge, back to the mainland, you'll find an abundance of golf courses, malls, cultural downtown Sarasota, and many major attractions.

The cottage is ideal for a single person, a couple, or a couple with a child or two. It does not accommodate 4 adults.

Flexible Reservations! Whether you choose a quick getaway or a longer vacation stay, you're sure to enjoy your time at Ebb Tide Cottage #1.

About Sue

Although I've been visiting family on Siesta Key since I was a child, I didn't imagine that I'd find myself falling in love on that very beach, marrying a wonderful man, and moving from Ontario, Canada to Sarasota! But that's exactly what happened. And now, after ten months of living here ourselves (and loving it!) we are delighted to be renting our little beach-side treasure. It was fun transforming it into the perfect vacation rental and I'm hoping that you enjoy it as much as we have!

Sue purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Sue chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

I have decades of family history and wonderful memories tied to Siesta Key! Every time you're here, you just know there isn't another place you'd want to be! What a beautiful beach!

What makes this cottage unique

The garden patio is a real bonus! Our gorgeous, heated pool is open until 10PM nightly! Our private, gated access to Crescent Beach is just a 2 or 3 minute walk from the villa! Right across the street from Ebb Tide you'll find restaurants, Big Water Fish Market, a Tiki Bar, grocery store, bike rental shop and more. No need for a car!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was a handwritten note left by our first tenants (before we listed with VRBO):

Sue, We would like to thank you for the rental this week. We've had a fabulous time. The wedding was wonderful. We will definitely be back and look forward to staying here again. Everything was perfect and your condo was more than we expected. Not one complaint. Again, Thank you.

Small cottage near the beach

  • 4 of 5

Cute little cottage. The cottage was a little further from the beach than I was expecting, but an easy walk. Sue provided beach chairs, umbrella and beach wagon which came in handy. This is a pretty small cottage, definitely not intended for more than 2adults. There is a small patio out back that we enjoyed breakfast on. Remember you are on the ground level so it is important to keep the doors and windows closed, otherwise critters will find their way inside.

The cottage is a little over 2miles from siesta key beach, and there is a free trolley that runs the strip regularly. Sue's cottage faces the street, but it was surprisingly quiet and at the end of the Main Street. It is also conviently located across the street from a drug store that carries anything you forgot!

My only suggestion would be to provide more towels and linens. Everything gets very sandy and on vacation I would rather not do laundry!

Hard to beat siesta key and crescent beach!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review, Misty. However, I'd like to clarify for our future guests: It's a 3 minute walk down a quiet, side street to our pool and our own beach access gate. It is Siesta Key Public Beach that is 2 miles away. Every new arrival to cottage #1 has an ample supply of quality towels that includes 4 beach towels, a set of 4 bath and 4 hand towels and facecloths. In addition to the fresh linens on the bed, you will find extra bed linens, sized for both the "full" sleeper sofa and the "single", inflatable mattress. Should any guest require additional towels or linens they need only ask. I hope to always provide an inviting, very clean, and well equipped cottage for my guests.

Very convenient, clean and well kept property.

  • 4 of 5

Sue was very responsive and accomodating to our needs. The condo was clean and appointed with the the basic things needed for our stay. The pool on the property was very nice with easy access to an amazing gulf beach. Several nice places to dine within walking distance. Overall an enjoyable stay.

Quaint Cottage and location, location, location

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a week at Sue's Siesta Key Cottage and had a marvelous time. Sue greeted us early to accommodate our early arrival which we really appreciated. We were pleasantly surprised with how well stocked the unit was...cleansing supplies, garbage bags, tissues, plus toiletries and so much more. Sue also provided an assortment of towels for the showers and the beach. Several beach chairs (Tommy Bahama!), umbrellas, coolers, and a beach wagon to cart our supplies to the beach.

The location was perfect!!!! A short walk to the beach each day making it easy to catch the amazing sunsets before dinner. It was in walking distance to several great restaurants, a grocery store and 711 plus across from the local rental shop for bikes and kayaks

The place was immaculate and I would return in a heartbeat...Thank you Sue for an amazing stay Monica and Dan

Amazing Birthday Vacation!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I wanted to visit Siesta Key Beach for quite sometime, and this year I told my sister to book a fabulous place for my birthday during Memorial Day. And she picked the right place EBB Tide Villa 1. Sue is great, very friendly and helpful. The accommodations are great, clean, perfect coordination of colors, the bathroom , kitchen, terrace and living room have everything!! We are definitely coming back, Easy access to the beach, the pool, everything is walking distance. My nephew saw the dolphins when he was riding the Jet Ski. The Village is close by, and they have great restaurants. But my favorite was BIG WATER FISH MARKET. Is a Must. Thank you Sue for a fabulous weekend.

Wonderful Vacations!!!

  • 5 of 5

Out family had a very enjoyable stay at the Ebb Tide Villa 1. With its cleanliness, beautiful decor, wireless internet access, and heated pool, this proved to be an excellent spot for our family of 4 to enjoy the beautiful Siesta key beach. Sue was very accommodating and wanted to do anything she could to make our stay as relaxing as possible, she is very friendly and helpful. With a full kitchen we were able to prepare food if we so desired, I love it, you can find anything you need on this villa, very well equipped. We would definitely recommend this villa for a low key family get away! We can't wait to go back...

World renowned Crescent Beach, famous for its white, powdery, quartz sand and gorgeous sunsets, is just a 3 minute walk from the villa door. We have our own private, gated beach access. There are restaurants and shops within easy walking distance. And the lively Siesta Key Village with its quaint beach shops, pubs and music scene is just a quick ride, by bike or car, up the road. It's all right here! When you do venture over the bridge, back to the mainland, you'll find an abundance of golf courses, malls, major attractions and cultural downtown Sarasota. A few must-sees include Mote Marine, Selby Gardens, St. Armand's Circle, and then back on Siesta Key, the Sunday sunset drumming circle at the public beach!
