Secluded Bungalows with Views of Lagoon and Tropical Palms
A barrier island west of Sarasota, Florida, Siesta Key is sandwiched between Little Sarasota Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. Siesta Key Bungalows sit along the banks of Heron Lagoon, a narrow waterway in the middle of the mangrove-lined island. It's a secluded spot where you can kayak through the water or fish from a private dock for snook and redfish. Tucked away as it is, the property is still just a short drive from the popular Siesta Beach, and it’s within 1 mile of Turtle Beach, a good spot for collecting seashells.
Hibiscus bushes and 30 kinds of palms surround Siesta Key Bungalows’ pool-deck area, shading it from the bright Florida sunshine. Feel free to borrow pool gear free of charge. You can borrow bicycles and kayaks, also at no charge, to explore the nearby coast.
Brick paths lead to the property’s 10 bungalows. Each has a unique layout, though all feature palm-themed decor and white-wicker furnishings. The Tortuga bungalow has a french door leading to a screened porch overlooking Heron Lagoon. Another, the Coquina bungalow, has its own private, walled-in garden and original 1950s tiles in the bathroom.
Highlights of Siesta Key, Florida

- 99% quartz: That's the composition of the sand on Siesta Key Beach, which explains its sugarlike texture.
