About the property

One Bedroom and One Full Bathroom. Sleeps Two With Comfort

The Siesta Key Beach Cottage is located right on Beach Rd directly across the street from the #1 Beach in the USA. Walk out the front door and walk across the street to beach access #7 and you are on the white powder Beach of Siesta Key. You can look out the front window and see the Beach Access #7 sign.

If your looking for some lunch after a day at the beach walk out the front door of The Siesta Key Beach Cottage and head right up to the Village. There you will find any type of food you can imagine. If the sun has made you thirsty there are plenty of options to grab your favorite cocktail while listening to live music while sitting outside.

Take the beach cruiser bikes provided at the Beach Cottage and bike down to the north end of the beach. There you will reach an old concrete pier you can walk out on and watch sunset. Beach Cruisers are the best way to get around. Park the car and throw away the keys. Walk or bike around the Key........leave the car at the Beach Cottage!!!!

Our guest have the opportunity to work out for free at the Siesta Key Fitness Center. It's the only gym on the Key and within walking distance. Our membership at the gym also allows our guests to use the Fitness Center at no charge while staying at our place.

About Dave Kessel

Dave and Tricia Kessel.

We are the owners of the Siesta Key beach cottage. We live down in Bonita Springs full time. Dave is from Michigan and Tricia from St Louis.

Dave Kessel purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Dave Kessel chose Siesta Key

Dave has been coming to Siesta Key his whole life. He lived on the Key right out of college from 94 to 97. When Dave met Tricia they would drive up to Siesta Key for long weekend vacations. Then in 2010 the beach cottage went up for sale and the Kessel's made it theirs.

What makes this cottage unique

One of the main benefits of the beach cottage is location. You can walk every where. The beach is across the street The Village is around the corner. Another benefit is the unit itself. It is continually updated inside. From towels to dishes to furniture.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This beach cottage deserves 5 stars! The cottage and location are exactly as described...sweet, comfortable and safe. The cottage was very clean, welcoming and well-maintained. Easy access to Siesta Beach and Siesta Village. Beach cruisers were fun! The deck was private and roomy with a nice shower hose to wash the sand off. The rain shower head was wonderful and the bed was comfortable. The owner, Dave, was very helpful, responsive, provided insider info and recommendations as well as excellent customer service. I highly recommend this cottage as a sweet retreat.

What a Great Place to Stay

Clean, comfortable and a great location. The beach chairs, umbrella, cooler and bikes were a wonderful bonus. We're so glad we chose your cottage.

Stylish and tastefully decorated Beach themed cottage

  • 5 of 5

Everything provided for you. Well stocked and lots of thought behind the amenities and overall setup. Beach chairs, umbrella and cooler were a Godsend. Quaint and authentic beach themed cottage. Owner was super easy to work with. Perfect location to Siesta Key village / restaurants etc and 5 min walk to beach.

Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from an awesome stay at Siesta Key beach cottage. From the moment we stepped inside the cottage we knew we had made the right choice to stay here. The cottage was very clean and immaculate. My wife couldn't get over how great it was and neither could I. Dave has went through great lengths to make sure that your stay is worry free from the beach chairs to the cooler, down to the "forget something" box in the bathroom. Dave made himself completely available for any questions and was very timely in responding to any texts. The only thing that would have made this vacation better would have been better weather, but even Dave couldn't change that! We would totally stay here again and hopefully will again soon! Thanks Dave!

Great Babymoon!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I visited in April for a quick beach getaway before the baby comes. The house was perfect for the two of us and had everything we needed for a great and relaxing beach vacation. Right across from the beach access point, and the close proximity to downtown Siesta Key was perfect - only a 5 minute walk. Dave was great to work with and answered all of our questions in a timely manner. The house was very clean and comfortable - the bed was super comfortable which was definitely important to me being 7 months pregnant! The beach chairs, towels and cooler were also a huge plus! Will definitely come back!

Siesta Key is home to the #1 beach in the United States. The beach is approximately 6 miles long of powder white sand. Every day hundreds of walkers, joggers, bike riders pass by on the water's edge. Along the beach there are a variety of sea birds such as egret, sandpiper, herons and of course sea gulls. Many days dolphins can be seen feeding and playing just off the beach along with the occasional manatee. The Gulf of Mexico shallow depths make it a very popular beach as walking hundreds of feet offshore the depth barely reaches six feet. The water's colors look like your in the Caribbean.

Right around the corner is the Village. Take a walk down Beach Rd to Ocean Blvd and experience Seista Key Village. You will find restaurants, bars, coffee houses, ice cream, shopping, or just great people watching. The Village has a very laid back atmosphere. Shorts, t-shirt, and flip flops are the preferred attire.

Other Activities: parasailing
