NEW! HEATED POOL! READY FOR OCTOBER 2014! Sophie’s Cottage is a smart, sophisticated upscale waterfront retreat with an oversized hot tub, boat dock, and a short walk to Siesta Key Beach. Ideally, it accommodates 6 but can easily sleep up to 8 with 3 private bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and 1 sleeping area in the living room. This lovely cottage is accessed through a lavishly landscaped courtyard bordered by a bright white scalloped picket fence. A meandering pathway of pavers in subtle shades of gray leads you through the courtyard inviting you to slow down just a moment and enjoy the surrounding tropical Florida fauna a...nd palm trees. The cottage is colored in a soft sea-washed gray with white shutters and trim, just as you might envision a waterside cottage at the beach in your dreams.
As you enter this spotless home, you immediately enjoy the soft subtle colors and cool sophistication resounding throughout the home. The front screened porch with rockers and wicker chairs invites you to sit a moment and enjoy Sophie’s hidden Orchid Garden with orchids and flowers of various colors. Very intriguing…. Just inside glossy white trim abounds throughout with walls painted in subtle, soothing shades of grey and mauve, floors finished in white tile or ash wood. You’ll find bright, clean spotless bathrooms finished in white tile, while a bright well lit kitchen filled with stainless equipment beckons you to prepare gourmet foods for your family and friends. A granite top dining table seats 6 with a lovely water view while 4 more can sit at the kitchen counter on stylish bar stools. Sophie’s Cottage sleeps up to 8 with a king bed in the master [sleeps 2], a queen bed in the 2nd master [sleeps 2], an Ikea convertible queen sofa bed in the living room [sleeps 2], and finally an Ikea convertible queen futon bed in the 3rd room [sleeps 2]. Flat panel televisions abound everywhere but a huge outside sun deck will quickly compel you to slip outside into the Florida sunshine and warmth. Abutting the deck area is a huge spa [large enough for 8] entrenched in a lovely landscape retreat that beckons you to slip into the warm waters to enjoy your Florida-style winter with a glass of chardonnay. And when you emerge from the spa you will feel as though you have been thoroughly massaged and totally reinvigorated. It’s fantastic and certainly large enough for the kids to splash around.
The Nation’s Number One Beach is only a short walk from the cottage and so compelling. But you also have the opportunity to explore the canal system with two kayaks available to you or explore the island with bikes available for your use as well. At night the waters light up at the enormous fishing dock on the canal where you and your family will be challenged with an abundance of large fish which include snook, red fish and snapper that love to gather around the snook light each evening. Everyone will truly be in-captivated by both the fish and light.
Ultimately, you’ll soon discover the most difficult experience here at Sophie’s Cottage will be leaving for home at the end of your stay. It’s always too short…
