About the property

A True 3 Bedroom, 2 Bath Property With A Private Outdoor Kitchen And Spa

Nestled on the serene and inviting Crescent Street, a true wood picket fence is the classic cottage signature which perfectly frames the tropical landscaping and delightful curb appeal.

Modern comforts of the 1,465 square foot cottage include a new kitchen with Granite counter tops, tile back splash, new stainless appliances, new front loader washer and dryer.

The floor plan gives an abundance of natural light, its a bright and sunny cottage near the sea's edge.

The gracious 500 square foot lanai offers views of the private, brick paver, fully fenced yard, with a custom built stainless outdoor kitchen, featuring a large grill and rotisserie, a refrigerator and two burner stove, surrounded by a custom built stone bar with seating for eight on luxury bar stools.

About Madeline Brogan

As a Sarasota resident of 30 years I have always loved Siesta Key. The area is the perfect relaxation spot. I purchased this completely renovated house one year ago as a weekend retreat without the travel; it's 20 minutes from my home. I have thoroughly enjoyed decorating it with all new furnishings that fit perfectly with the relaxed island feeling this cottage radiates.

Madeline Brogan purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Madeline Brogan chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

I looked at many properties for my own vacation home ownership but found the true gem in my own back yard, just a few steps from the beautiful beach with adequate parking; never having to jostle for a parking spot again at the public beach was a huge selling point for me. As an added benefit, the backyard is its own private oasis. I added a custom built outdoor kitchen and bar so that I could relax with friends and enjoy wonderful family get-togethers. I know that you will love this cottage as much as my family and I do.

What makes this cottage unique

Just a few steps from the beautiful Crescent Beach and Point of Rocks.

Parking for up to 5 cars.

Secluded private oasis with a outdoor kitchen, bar and bar seating for up to 8.

Tile floors throughout.

Loungers and day beds to relax and soak up the sun.

Modern kitchen with front loading washer and dryer.

Just a walk away from restaurants, bars and the local 7-11 or take a free door to door shuttle (tips only) to Siesta Key Village.

This is a true vacation home.

Wonderful Family Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

This property was absolutely perfect!

We vacationed for four weeks in July with our 3 young boys and dog and had a truly wonderful time. The house had everything we could have wanted and Madeline, the property owner, was so accommodating to any questions or concerns we had during that time. She welcomed us with flowers, wine, and capri suns, and even brought dog treats for our pup.

The location was great, just down the street from the beach, which made for easy trips to and from the house for snacks, more toys, etc. The beach itself is fantastic, but if you're looking on Siesta Key, you already know that. Wonderful water, perfect sand, beautiful shells, and ample space, we couldn't have asked for more in our summer vacation spot.

After 4 weeks, the property felt like a second home. We will definitely return in the future to make more awesome family memories!

Convenient location and good ambience

  • 4 of 5

Backyard was great. Kids enjoyed the "spool". Bedrooms were comfy. Back door is within rear room/3rd bedroom with tumble bed and bean bag bed. Stocked with beach chairs, rafts, and beach toys. Very nice time. Note it's more like 300 steps to actually reach the beach.

Outdoor Oasis

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific week at Siesta Key, the house lived up to its reputation from previous reviews. It was equipped with everything you needed inside and out. The purpose of the week was a get together for my two sons and my daughter-in-law.

There were plenty of good times spent around the fire pit at night. The outdoor kitchen was well used and well equipped. The whole setting outside was beautiful. The walk to the pristine beach was short and pleasant. We didn't spend that much time inside the house, but when we did there was plenty of room.

Madeline was available for the few times we needed and she was very helpful. The whole week was a pleasure. Weather was outstanding. We walked down to the beach one night and a display of stars was spectacular. The sunsets were nice too. All in all, it was a great time. My wife and I would do this again with the family again anytime.

As you cross the draw bridge onto Siesta Key, you realize that it is a pocket of tranquility from your busy world - welcome to paradise!! Just a few steps from the snow white powder sands of Crescent Beach. Imagine a short stroll every night with a tropical drink to watch the breath taking sunsets over the Gulf of Mexico... perhaps you will catch a glimpse of the green flash!

Bike along the tropical paths of this 8 mile beautiful barrier island, or simply ride along the 2 and a half mile stretch of the sugar sand shores of Crescent Beach.

If you don't feel like bike riding, talk a leisurely walk along Crescent Beach with the warm gulf leisurely lapping at your feet.

At the southern tip of Crescent Beach you will find Point of Rocks; an area easy to explore... rich with coral formations, shallow waters, and rare geological features. It's a great place to view birds and colorful marine life that is perfect for snorkeling (snorkel gear provided) or diving. Crescent Beach, a 2.5 mile stretch of tropical paradise is a 'very private, non private' beach due to the lack of parking, (Parking available for 5 cars on the property), this means that you can enjoy the area of this tropical island without interruption.

When you're ready to explore the island, take a short walk to the local shopping plaza to Javier's Restaurant and Wine Bar, Captain Curt's Crab and Oyster Bar, Clayton's, or Anna's Deli world famous specialty sandwiches; a grocery store and 7-11 are close by for your convenience.

Call one of many local free shuttle services (tips only) for door to door service to take you to any Siesta Key destination. Visit Siesta Key Village without worrying about driving or parking.

Siesta Key Village hosts a plethora of great bars, shops, restaurants and night life: The Beach club, Siesta Key Oyster Bar, The Cottage, Daiquiri Desk, Blasé Cafe, Joto Japanese Steakhouse, Big Olaf's Ice Cream, The Old Salty Dog and the Lobster Pot just to name a few!!!

If you'd like to have an adventure, you can Jet Ski, rent a boat to explore local waterways, Para-Sail, Kayak, Standup Paddle Board, Wave Runner... or charter a boat for deep sea fishing!

Would you rather just lounge around? Relax on the beach with your beach chair (provided), toes in the sand and a good book. Don't bury your head too far into that novel because you might miss the passing dolphins as they swim by!
