Siesta Key Luxury Home Market Is Hot!
It's Time to Buy Your "Piece of Paradise"!
Siesta Key is one of the major barrier islands situated just off Sarasota Florida separated from the mainland by Sarasota Bay and the smaller Roberts Bay.
On the Gulf Coast side of this 8-mile long island, Siesta Key has the best beaches in Florida (any think the best in the U.S.) facing the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Siesta Beach, rated the #1 beach in America in 2011 by Dr. Beach, is world-famous for its soft white quartz sand, unsurpassed anywhere in America in its beauty and comfort. On the inland side, Siesta Key faces Sarasota Bay and the Intracoastal Waterway where residents and visitors both enjoy fishing, boating and sailing on protected waters and along the edges of scenic mangrove forests.
The Travel Channel said, "Relaxing is easy on Siesta Key with its sand as soft and white as sugar, its brilliant sunshine and azure waters."
Siesta Key has shops and boutiques from chic and elegant and from hip to funky, with all sorts of casual fashions, beach accessories and souvenirs. At places like Siesta Village, there are restaurants where you can grab a quick breakfast or lunch in your flip-flops or enjoy an extraordinary dinner. Of course, there are also grocery stores, drug stores, a post office and such on the island.
And right across either of the two quaint bridges and causeways lie all the arts, cultural and other venues that make Sarasota so attractive to so many.
As for Siesta Key real estate, the widest spectrum of home and condo options are available in every format and every price range. Neighborhoods on Siesta Key vary from an artists and writers colony at Siesta Village to traditional single-family homes and condos, and exclusive waterfront homes and elegant condos. From one end of the island to the other, you'll experience a very vibrant "island lifestyle" but at the same time, there are secluded spots where a much more elegant and slower paced lifestyle is still in style. Many who live on Siesta Key consider it “Florida's Own Little Paradise.”
So, the question is...Is Siesta Key a place you should consider as you decide where to buy that get-away spot or permanent home you’ve been dreaming about ? A lot of people think the answer is a resounding “you betcha it is.”
