What makes us different than other homes you may be considering:

·  The Beach - The home is located on the ocean side of Beach Rd., so you just walk out your door and through our private access path.  It’s literally 230 feet to Siesta Key Beach.  No busy roads to cross and no need to find parking.

·  Seconds to Siesta Key Village – The home is located right next to Siesta Key Village.  You are a one block walk away from restaurants, bars, boutiques, and ice cream shops.

·  Large Home – The home has just over 2,000 square feet on the top two levels and includes 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, lanai, and in-unit laundry.  We also have a 1,000 square foot ground level that has the main entrance foyer and 2.5 car garage.  It comfortably sleeps 8-10 people.

·  Privacy & Security – The home is part of a development of four homes.  It has its own gated driveway, garage, and entrance.  This is not a high rise or large vacation rental development.  When you stay at The Shells Villa you feel like you are in a home, not an apartment or hotel room. 

·  Amenities & Décor – The villa is elegantly appointed to make you feel at home.  It has luxury finishes such as three flat screen TVs, surround sound audio, beautiful art work, fireplace, oriental rugs, and comfortable furniture.  Free cable, Internet (wireless or wired), phone, beach toys/chairs, and gas grill are also included.

·  Peace of Mind – Don’t leave anything to chance.  The Shells Villa is locally managed and the office is located within walking distance of the home, so if you run into any issues you know we will be there to help.    

From the first time you enter The Shells Villa you know this is not a typical vacation home. From the Spanish tile to the beautiful rugs and antique furnishings, you truly feel like a special guest.

Walk half a block to restaurants and shopping at the Village on Siesta Key. Enjoy the three levels of gracious living in this Spanish Mediterranean style villa.

Leave your car behind, sheltered in your private two-car garage. Walk out the door and down the footpath. In seconds you are on one of the most beautiful white powder sand beaches in the world. No streets to cross, no driving, and no looking for a parking place.

The Shells Villa is conveniently located on Sieste Key Beach as well as a half block away from Siesta Key Village.  Although the home has a private 2.5 car garage, a car is not necessay because you are steps away from the beach, restaurants, bars, grocery stores, ice cream shops, boutiques, and entertainment.

The Property & Location
· Where is the home located and what is the exact address?  The home is located on Siesta Key and the exact address is 312 Beach Road, Sarasota, FL  34242.

· What kind of property is this?  The Shells Villa is a three story townhouse that is part of a four unit development that was built in the mid 1990’s.  This home has its own gated entrance from Beach Road.

· How big is the home?  The Shells Villa has three bedrooms and 2.5 baths.  One of the bathrooms is attached to the master bedroom.  The total square footage of the home is just over three-thousand (3,000).  There are three floors with each floor being 1,000 square feet.

· What rooms are on each floor?  The ground floor has the private two car garage, secured storage area, and entry foyer.  The main floor contains the kitchen, pantry, dining room, living room, half bath, and balcony/deck.  The upstairs floor contains the master bedroom / bath, bedrooms 2 & 3, laundry area, linen closets, and common bathroom.

· Can I walk to the beach?  Yes, the unit is located on the ocean side Beach Rd and there is one house between the Shells Villa and the beach.  Just walk 230 feet across the courtyard and through the designated path and you are on the beach. 

· Does the home have views of the beach or ocean?  Although the home is practically on the beach it does not have any direct views of the beach or ocean because it faces Beach Road.  If you are standing on the main floor balcony you can see a limited and obstructed view of the water.  For a picture of this view click here.

· How many beds does the home have?  There are two (2) queen size beds, two (2) full size bunk beds, two (2) twin size bunk beds, one (1) queen sleeper sofa, and two (2) inflatable Aero beds.

· How close to the Village area is the unit?   The Shells Villa is just steps away from  where Beach Rd turns into Ocean Blvd.  This intersection is the beginning of the Siesta Key Village.  The Siesta Key Village or as the locals call it "The Village" is where many of the restaurants, boutiques, bars, and ice cream shops are located.  It is considered the heart of Siesta Key.

· Does the home have a pool?  No, we don't have a pool in the complex, but the Lido Beach Pool is available for your use.  The Lido Beach Pool is heated, open to the public and is located at 400 Ben Franklin Drive, Sarasota, FL.  The pool is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 am - 4:45 pm.  The cost is $4 for adults and $2 for kids/seniors.

· Can we bring our dog to the beach?  Siesta Key is very pet friendly, but dogs are not allowed on the beach.  If you want your dog to experience the water we suggest Bird Key  Park.  It is located at 200 John Ringling Causeway, Bird Key, Sarasota 34236.

· Are there laundry facilities in the home?  Yes, there is a washer and dryer in the unit.

· Does the home have an elevator?  Yes, the unit has a private elevator that serves all three floors.  The elevator is available for convenience purposes only and should not be considered for individuals or families that require 100% elevator uptime.  As this is a single elevator in a private home (not a hotel), if the elevator needs to be serviced we do not have a backup option while the repairs are being made.

· Does the home have a crib or high chair?  There is a high chair in the home, but no crib.  We routinely work with ABC Rentals and they can coordinate delivery of cribs, toddler beds, or other beach rentals so that the items can be in the home before you arrive.  They have reasonable prices and great customer service.

· Does the home have a telephone and Internet?  Yes, there is a telephone in the unit that includes free local calls.  The unit also has Verizon Fios high speed Internet access which can be connected to via a Cat5 line or via wireless access.  You will need to provide your own computer/laptop.
