THE OLD OAK COTTAGE: Welcome to the Old Oak Cottage located just one and a half blocks from the north bridge to Siesta Key on the corner of Siesta Drive and Old Oak Road. This fabulous cottage is anything but 'old' having been recently completely renovated.
LOCATION: With such a great location just off the island, many of our families love to walk to the bridge to fish and enjoy an exceptional Sarasota Bay sunset. And although just off siesta, the old oak cottage could not be more convenient. You easily are within walking distance [two blocks] to plenty of shopping, the Publix grocery store, fast foods, banks and many fine restaurants without being subject to traffic whatsoever. You will truly love this convenient location, so let’s look at everything else the Old Oak Cottage offers your family.
INTERIOR AMENITIES: The Old Oak Cottage owners discovered this cottage and in renovating it, chose to maintain the cottage feel of Siesta Key living to preserve the elements of the architecture that makes it so unique and charming. Influenced by both the ocean and Sarasota Bay, you’ll discover a cottage fresh and crisp, a white living room decorated with generous upholstered pieces in marina blues to ensure maximum comfort. This room is accented in bright yellows, stripe and vivid reds. A very large flat panel HD smart TV is mounted on the wall for you pleasure. Internet wi-fi is provided as you might expect. The kitchen which has been completed renovated features granite tops, top line stainless appliances and can be described as nothing short of enormous with lots of cabinet space. Open cottage style shelving abounds and is filled with everything needed as well as colorful glassware and accessories. Nothing is left to desire.
Since the owners believed that coming to this 'beach inspired home' should be absolutely fun and exciting, a stunning pool was added to the property fully enveloped with lush tropical foliage to insure a good time for all. And there’s plenty of outside seating for dining and lounging along with a gas grill for cooking. You’ll surely spend many a glorious hour together with family/friends here by the pool.
SLEEP ACCOMODATIONS: The Old Oak Cottage comfortably accommodates a party of eight . The master bedroom features a king size bed [sleeps 2], bedroom 2 features queen size bed [sleeps 2], and bedroom three features two twin beds [sleeps 2]. In the sunroom, there are additional futons couches that make into great queen beds [sleeps up to 4]. In the day this area also serves as a kid’s room with its own wall mounted, flat panel TV in an area all of which is easily closed off by a unique sliding wall feature creating privacy. All inspired by the colors of the sea and beaches of Siesta Key.
OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES: Everyone will enjoy the new heated pool with screened in lanai, bicycles for exploring the neighborhood and nearby shops and restaurants, 2 kayaks and a kayak caddy to explore Sarasota Bay just minutes away in walking distance, the outdoor gas grill, and outdoor dining table with umbrella, along with lots of beach going gear to include a beach caddy, toys, beach chairs and towels!

This review is going to be lengthy, but I feel it will be helpful to others since the only review I found was the one previous about the dogs. First, we never heard any barking. So that was a relief for us since we assumed we would. Finding and entrance to the house was easy. It IS on a busy road which didn't bother us (there is a fence all around the yard and house) except for at night. My husband just put ear plugs in, but since we had our kids with us I felt that one of us should have an ear out for them. I am a light sleeper so beeps and engines revving woke me up. The layout of the house was perfect for us. There is a "kid room" that our kids slept in every night. They folded the futons down and slid them together to make one big bed. This area was so nice because the kids would want to watch their own movie and we could close the sliding doors and both have privacy. The room is also supplied with art items, puzzles, books, and a few toys. The kitchen had enough dishes, cups, pans. We had gone to Walmart before first getting to the house and I wish we hadn't because there were lots of seasonings and condiments we ended up having double of. We did end up getting disposable cups so we could be a little more lazy. They had a great BBQ grill outside and we grilled almost every night. I loved how this house was accommodating to families! They had pool toys, beach chairs, kayaks, an umbrella, a wagon, and beach toys. I was very grateful for that so that we wouldn't have to buy things for just our stay. We rented a van and I'm glad we did. There is a little parking lot down the road that you can walk to where guys are fishing and you can throw rocks, but it isn't "the beach." The beach is about a 10 min drive from the house. The beach is GORGEOUS! We had a lot of fun building sand castles, finding shells, and braving the chilly water. There is a grocery store that's about a 3 min drive from the house that has all your needs. Although minor, there were a few things the house needed some attention with. I found that you can't take showers and put on a wash at the same time because the laundry room would flood. The master bathroom handle stuck down when you flushed and the lightbulbs in all the ceiling fans were out. Maybe having a supply of lightbulbs in a drawer would be helpful. This stay was amazing! My husband, kids, and I would do it again for sure!
