About the property

4 Bedroom in Heart of Siesta Key Village, 2 Blocks to Beach

For more reviews of our home, see vrbo 44368 (5 star Reviews.) Are you looking for a high-end experience on Siesta Key? We created this beautiful town-home, just 200 steps from Siesta Village & 2 blocks from the beach, to be our ideal home away from home. It's a beach side retreat that we are excited to escape to! Everything is new - from granite kitchens with stainless steel appliances, to the pool, to the Vera Wang Bedding. It's perfect for one large family or 2 families. The duplex offers 2 separate units, side-by-side, that share a private backyard and pool. Each has 2 bedrooms (a Master with a King Bed and 2nd bedroom with 2 twin beds, there are also new air mattresses for additional guests.)

Everything has been completely remodeled - with each side having new granite kitchens, stainless steel appliances, new bathrooms, new furniture, new small waterfall pool, and new a/c and duct work (great for anyone with allergies). Each unit has a large private washer/dryer room off the kitchen, and two porches - one off the living room and the other off the master bedroom. The duplex has a NEW small, yet lovely waterfall pool with underwater seating. And the location can’t be beat – we are in the heart of Siesta Key Village, literally 2 blocks to the beach and 200 steps to all your village restaurant and shopping needs. You my not even need a car.

About David

I was a visitor to Siesta Key every year of my life before making Siesta Key my home.

My wife and I believe in making something beautiful, and trust that the right people will come to enjoy it. We believe in the motto - if something is worth doing, it's worth doing well.

Why 312 Canal Road? We love the beach and village and the best part of our location is that you can walk to everything! It's a great place to celebrate a family gathering, reunion, or special vacation. We also made this duplex into a beautiful home that we wanted to live in. I'm a graduate of Cornell's Hotel School and take hospitality very seriously. I'm very satisfied when my guests have a great stay.

Please tell us about your vacation plans and if you are celebrating something special, so we can best accommodate you! We are also locals and can tell you additional details about the area that you might want to know to make your trip special... from where to get a great breakfast (the Sungarden cafe - 2 minute walk from our house) to where to find the best ice cream cones - (Big Olafs - also a 2 minute walk from our house) to where to picnic on the beach! Siesta Key is really an amazing place.

David purchased this house in 2012

Why David chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

3 Reasons: 1 - Unbeatable LOCATION near beach and village. It's really nice not to have to drive anywhere! 2 - We offer one of the nicest homes in Siesta Village: everything is NEW inside! 3. Last, but not least - us. We live nearby and are hands on to make your trip special.

My wife has impeccable taste, so you will feel special here. My dad is a retired architect and has personally designed many of the property's features including the new front entrance. There is a good chance you will meet him as he enjoys taking care of the landscaping. Check out the pictures and feel free to inquire about any of the details. We are relatively new to VRBO, so we will add to this description as time goes on.

What makes this house unique

We could not find an upscale vacation rental when we got married on Siesta Key 10 years ago. Our home comes fully equipped with high-end finishes for the discerning traveler including: finer linens, beach towels, Vera Wang Bedding, beach chairs, new kitchens, and more. A short walk to the beach and village! Siesta Key Beach was recently voted number one in the world. While a car is helpful to see the rest of Sarasota, if you are in shape, you can walk to the beach several times every day ... and the best restaurants are even closer.

At night, you can sit on the porch and hear great music coming from Siesta Key Village. It's really nice not to have to drive anywhere!

We mentioned some of the new features like granite and stainless steel kitchen, which you will enjoy. We also didn't spare an expense on the mechanicals which will make your stay nicer. We have the most expensive high-end elongated toilets and also installed new carrier air-conditioning systems and duct work (great for allergy sufferers.)

Just back from another great visit to Siesta Key. This was the second time we stayed in David's house on Canal road and I just wanted to say it was another great visit. The house is located within walking distance of everything but tucked away on a quiet street. Its a great place to relax and enjoy both the Siesta Key Village and Beach. If you go be sure to try out the owners restaurant suggestions as they were excellent.

Owner's Response: Hi Steve, Thanks so much for the great review and mentioning our best of Siesta Key list. We are always on the lookout for a great new restaurant to share with you. For future stays, we also now have a wonderful chef that works with our guests, too. He can prepare a meal for you in-house or drop off several meals for your stay. Thanks again and I look forward to seeing you back on the Key soon! Warm regards, David

#42 Birthday Celebration

  • 5 of 5

This property exceeded all my expectations in cleanliness, decor, comfort and commodities such has having a full kitchen with extra linens for the bed and plenty of bath and beach towels not to mention having a washer and dryer in each unit was the best. We were a family of 11 (4 adults) , (3 teenagers), (4 childrens). The younger ones really enjoyed the pool and the patio the teenagers enjoyed being able to walk around the village and we all enjoyed the beautiful beach as well having the homemade ice cream right in the corner, a few drinks and the delicious pizza and pasta all in walking distance. We had a fantastic stay and as well as all the our other guest comments we barely used the car only to get out of the island... David the owner is very accommodating and makes sure his guest are welcomed. We will forsure be back next year in the summer!!!

House met all our needs. Perfect location to the village and beaches.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Siesta Key Village. Great weather! We arrived on Saturday and never started the cars till we left the following Saturday. The village with shops, dining and grocery store were a short walk from the house. The beach was also just a short walk away. Great family environment. The house met all our needs. We had 11 adults (4 parents, 7 adult children) We would highly recommend a stay at this home. Owners were very accommodating and great to work with.

Terrific Family Get Away

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with extended family (2 children, 6 adults) to celebrate our wedding and had an amazing week here. The house worked beautifully for our group – we had plenty of room and were easy walking distance (5 minutes) to the Siesta Village restaurants and the beach. We only used our car to leave the island.

The house was very clean and well maintained and well stocked with plenty of towels and even had a beach cart and umbrella for beach trips. The backyard pool is small but very convenient for a quick dip.

The owners were very accommodating and made sure we had everything we needed to feel at home during our stay. We would definitely recommend this place and hope to stay here again next year. Thanks, David!

Owner's Response: Dear Colleen, Thank you for your review and kind words about our home and location. We were so thrilled to know that you got married on Siesta Key. Congratulations again! Thank you also for recommending the kayaking trip through the mangrove tunnels to see the dolphins and manatees. It's my to do list. Sonila and I look forwarding to seeing you soon. Warm regards, David

Fantastic Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was a truly perfect spot to stay. The owners were very accommodating, they worked with us on early check in and actually met us at the house when we arrived. The house was well furnished and the kitchen had everything to have meals at the house. It was very clean and comfortable for our family of 4. We have two young children(1.5 and 3.5) and the place was great. It was a great location, we never had to move the car. We could walk to the beach and downtown area. David was a pleasure to work with and hope to go back soon. I recommend this for everyone.

Owner's Response: Dear Sam, Thank you for the review! I appreciate you pointing out how you didn't need to move your car while you were here and the convenience of our home: walking to both Siesta Beach and Siesta Village. So many travelers visit Siesta and stay at the Southern end of the Key not realizing that it's 5 miles away from the Village. Please come back and visit soon! I look forward to seeing your whole family. Warm regards, David

The Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I vacationed in Siesta Key for the first time in early September. We were told ahead of time to try and stay near the Village. We picked this condo based on its location and we were not let down!! This condo was in the PERFECT location!! We could easily walk to the beach, restaurants, bars, and a grocery store that will more than meet your needs! Just look out for Meaney’s Mini Donuts – you won’t be able to stop with just one visit!!  With the location of this condominium, you won’t need a rental car to get around. We used a local taxi service to get to and from the Sarasota airport which worked out perfectly!

The condominium itself was great! It was very clean and well organized with everything you would need for meal prep in the kitchen to long days at the beach (towels, chairs, and beach umbrellas). The condo had 2 bedrooms – one with a king size bed and the other with 2 twin beds. The condo also had a pool in the backyard with a gas grill and outdoor furniture that is shared with guests in the attached unit. It was the perfect setup for a nice, relaxing dinner followed by a dip in the pool! The owners definitely went out of their way to make sure they met and or exceeded all of our needs upon arrival! We felt right at home from the moment we arrivedl!

Some of the restaurants we enjoyed during our stay were Gilligan’s Island Bar and Grill, Daiquiri Deck, The Broken Egg (best brunch hands down!), The Hub Baja Grill, and Blue Que Island Grill. All of these places are easily walkable from the condominium!

Siesta Key Fitness Center is also close by for anyone who wants to work off all the great food you’re bound to enjoy! This is a great little gym that covers all your weight and cardio needs!

We can’t wait to come back to Siesta Key! We would definitely stay at this condominium again!!

Owner's Response: Dear Lauren, Thanks so much for your note! I really appreciate that you mentioned how great our location is in terms of walking to both Siesta Key Village and Beach because guests traveling here for the first time don't realize that Siesta Key is 6 miles long and can unintentionally get stuck no where near the Village. We look forward to seeing you and Dan again soon! It was fun for me to see the two of you having so much fun. Thanks also for also pointing out in a separate email - the paddle boarding lessons at the Fitness Center. Quite a few of our guests do like to try it when they're here. My very best, David
