About Bill Burns

The owners, Bill and Molly bought their first triplex on Calle Miramar in '89. They've lived on Siesta Key ever since then and are very familiar with all that Sarasota has to offer.

'We think Siesta Key is a great place to live, you can go to the beach three times a day, catch the sunsets at night and park your car on a Friday night and not have to drive again until Monday morning.'

Bill Burns purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Bill Burns chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

The Siesta Key Blue Cottage is the second property we've owned on Calle Miramar. It's a sought after location just 1/2 block to both the Beach and the Village. Built in 1949, it has withstood the test of time and is one of the few remaining examples on Siesta Key of the Florida Bungalow.

What makes this cottage unique

Unique benefits to this property are it's a ground floor, one floor housing unit. No flights of stairs to haul your bags up. An easy walk with a chair and beach towel gets you to the quieter end of Siesta Beach without trying to find parking! And it's a short walk, not a drive or ride, into Siesta Village where you have many restaurants to choose from. Location, location, location.

Super cute, cozy, quiet, and perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This was our very first vacation to Siesta Key, Florida and staying at the Blue Cottage was a great experience. This place is super cute and it comes equipped with everything you need and then some. Bill and Molly have literally thought of everything you need while on vacation. It's a little bit of a hike to the beach but the cottage came with a black wire grocery cart that made the haul a lot easier! We had a great time and would definitely recommend staying here to anyone that is interested!

Location location location!

  • 5 of 5

The blue cottage was the perfect getaway for my husband and I! Bill greeted us upon arrival. He was very accommodating. He answered phone calls and e-mails right away if we had any questions. The cottage was very clean and had everything you needed. Probably could have used a few more towels. The king bed was very comfortable too! Siesta key village was just a short walk! And don't under estimate the local market! It had everything you needed! The beach was about a block and half away. We will definitely be coming back to the blue cottage!
