About the Property
The waterfront cottage, ‘La Casa Verde’ is a very luxurious and large four  bedroom canal front heated pool home with two very large bathrooms in approximately 2,800 square feet of air conditioned living space. As you approach the home you are immediately drawn into it by volumes of lush, lavish tropical foliage just as you envisioned your Florida experience would be.
Colorful seasonal flowers border both sides of the walkway entering the home and you soon find yourself beaming with happiness. You immediately notice the huge, spacious living room with high, voluminous ceilings and an enormous travertine fireplace. Original artwork abounds. Across the open entry and stepped down dining area, you look out beyond a wall of glass into the pool courtyard featuring lush, green tropical landscaping and flowers, all completely surrounded 180 degrees by the canals. You are simply amazed. Water, water everywhere….
Once inside, just off to your left, the home offers a beautiful and expansive kitchen with stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops and everything necessary to prepare your favorite gourmet meals. And most importantly, the entire kitchen opens up to the great room allowing everyone to be together in a wonderful family gathering.
Downstairs, the master bedroom features a comfortable queen size bed and a guest room with two twins that can be converted to a king bed. There is a beautiful and spacious tile bathroom with a steeping tub-shower combination, marble counter tops, and tile floors. Upstairs you find an enormous sleeping loft with hardwood floors and three twin beds abutting another large master bedroom with a king size bed.
The upstairs conjoined master bath features an oversized shower with twin individual sinks for your added convenience. There is an abundance of closet space and furnishings. Plenty of flat panels TVs are available for your enjoyment as well.
Outside, you’ll enjoy the huge pool surrounded by lush landscaping, flowers, beautiful landscape up lighting at night creating a magical pool environment. Underneath the big tree you’ll discover a truly inspiring hammock along with a special place for two, the overlook deck. Here you’ll sit and sip a glass of wine under the tree in a very private, special setting while gazing onto the canal or perhaps the snook light later in the evening. And there is always a cool breeze to enjoy.
Off to your right, you’ll find the dock, plenty of colorful adirondack chairs and a great place for fishing at night at the snook light. During the day, it’s the launching site for the kayaks that are there onsite and great fun for touring the neighborhood by water. You can also tie your boat up to the dock or arrange a pontoon boat rental from “The Black Pearl” (exclusive to our guests only!) for a portion of the week. We’ll be happy to assist. If you desire to explore the island, head to the beaches or just get some exercise, plenty of beach cruisers  await you in the garage. You simply will never run out of fun, family activities at the canal front ‘La Casa Verde’.
There is a 14 night minimum stay or 1 rental per 30 day period, per Sarasota, FL ordinance, contact us for more information.
Siesta Beach, one of the world’s finest [rated No. 1 by TripAdvisor in 2015] is three blocks [approx 1/4 mile] west on Columbus Ave. You’ll love its crystal white quartz sand which remains cool in the summer and fine to the touch. It’s rare to find a large canal home so close to the beach. The area aptly named “Sunset Point” (the north end of Siesta Key Beach) is within easy walking distance and a beach caddy with plenty of beach chairs and beach equipment is provided
Excellent facilities are available at the main beach access which is but a mile away and includes lifeguards, volleyball, morning exercise sessions, bathrooms, tennis, concession stand, bathrooms and plenty of parking [800 spaces and more coming]. Siesta Key Village is just one block away. A leisure walk will get you there in 2 minutes.
Plenty of restaurants, shops and night spots. Florida is known for its beaches, climate and foliage so this home features on its grounds an amazing amount of lavish tropical foliage to include many flower species as well as many fruit tree varieties. If you like plants and nature, you’ll love the grounds [almost like a botanical garden].
