Why Choose Siesta Key Real Estate?
Often touted by travel magazines and internet sites, Siesta Key is home to the 2011 #1 Beach in USA. The first image that comes to mind of this barrier island would be the white-sand beaches for which this area is so well known. Pitch your beach umbrella, dig your toes in the sand, and take in the ocean views as the sun passes over the calm waters of the Gulf. The sense of relaxation extends right into Siesta Key Village, where sandals are seen more often than oxfords or pumps. Just a few blocks long, the Village is the meeting place for you and your neighbors – a casual hangout of open-air cafes and eclectic shops.
Relaxation is only part of the picture on Siesta Key. Boating along the intracoastal waterway and canals takes you through mangrove forests that make you feel as if you’re embarking on a unique tropical adventure. Parasailing, jet skiing and kayaking are favorite ocean-going pastimes, while on-shore residents enjoy biking, nature trails, as well as tennis. On the nearby mainland, you'll find some of the best and most exclusive golf on the Gulf Coast.
