reunion at Grand Canal Cottage
This beautiful home was perfect for our reunion to celebrate Hannah’s graduation. Family came from all reaches of the USA, including Hawaii. Spacious, beautifully decorated and wonderful amenities. We enjoyed many happy hours in the pool, kayaking on the canal and exploring with the pontoon boat we rented. The home was perfectly supplied with everything we could desire, including a fabulously supplied gourmet kitchen and outdoor grill to cook wonderful meals. Our guests came from all reaches of the USA, including Hawaii and everyone loved it. The staff was cheerful, helpful and very accommodating. What a wonderful destination to relax and enjoy the many beaches, shopping and happenings of Sarasota and the surrounding area!
Thank you for your review of The Grand Canal Cottage! We are thrilled you enjoyed your stay with us, from the home and amenities to the location and experience with The Black Pearl. We hope you will consider us again the next time you are in beautiful Siesta Key. Until next time, #CottageON!
The house was perfect for what we needed
Although we would have used the pool had the heat been turned on.
This home is beautiful and comfortable.
I enjoyed the boat, pool and hot tub immensely. The home was very well appointed. The customer service was stellar. The beach is wide and pink and lovely, restaurants excellent, and Sarasota just a few moments away, offering theater, music and fine dining.
Our family of 3 generation had an amazing vacation at this wonderful house. This is by far one of the most thoughtfully laid out and well equipped beach houses we have encountered in many years of renting vacation properties. The personalized cupcakes and the prestocked wine fridge was just what we needed upon arrival after a noisy plane ride with all the kids.
It was then off to the nearby amazing beach and doing some shopping on 41. Other members explored and enjoyed the beautiful and private landscaped grounds, my mom was especially delighted to see some unfamiliar tropical trees and plants. The kids loved fishing in the backyard, the snook light was great for seeing the fish. The week went by too quickly.
Overall a wonderful experience and we are very appreciative for the opportunity. Also appreciate Roger's detailed info guide on the house so we quickly felt at home. Thanks so much!
ABOVE AND BEYOND!
Our experience at the "Grand Canal Cottage" was beyond exceptional from start to finish. From the first phone conversation with the owner Roger, to the follow up calls - no detail was too small, no request went unanswered...and we had a lot of questions! 10 family members stayed at the house, but one day during our stay was a family birthday celebration with 30 guests! Roger didn't blink an eye at the suggestion of a party but rather asked how he could be of help, offering parking options, the best place to buy key lime pies and what supplies were available for us to use. Many times rental homes have the bare minimum - linens, towels and dish soap. Grand Canal Cottage has everything! Serving dishes, utensils, spices, wine, a cooler, bicycles...you name it!
The 3 main bedrooms provided great "couple space," especially the Master with it's own sitting area. The bunk room, or should I say bunk "apartment," was a great option for the kids who loved the idea of having their own place with a mini fridge and a flat screen! The outdoor patio looking out onto the canal - complete with hot tub, kayaks, a gas grill and bar - was delightful. The lush landscaping topped off the inviting setting.
-The 2 block walk to the beach is not an easy walk for some seniors, but there are 4 great bikes to choose from to make the distance negligible.
- Pictures always make spaces look larger than they are but the space at the cottage was more than adequate. The photos available on the website tell the true story of a warm, well appointed, well thought out home for vacationers to enjoy!
Thank you Roger...and daughter in law Heather...for all you did to make our family celebration one that we will never forget! And, Siesta Key itself was a wonderful place to visit too!
A home away from home
My family and friends could not have been happier about the time we spent together in Roger's beautiful home and discovering Siesta Key. In the three weeks I was there, we ate out only once, because it was so much fun to prepare meals together in the fully stocked gourmet kitchen. I thought my guests would miss not having a swimming pool but we decided we were glad there was a hot tub instead. We loved sitting in it at night with a glass of wine and watching the fish attracted to the green glowing snook light in the canal. We made use of the provided bicycles to explore the key as well as the kayaks for exploring the canal. The house is less than a 10 minute walk to the public beach and I appreciated that beach chairs and a rolling cart were supplied. The house is clean, warm and welcoming. I particularly liked the master bedroom with its wall of sliding glass doors looking out onto the canal, the comfy bed with a pillowtop mattress and sateen sheets. The property is beautifully landscaped with fruit trees (which we were encouraged to pick and eat) and flowers. It felt very private. Roger and his daughter Heather were always available by phone and took care of any issue immediately (like sending a plumber when the WC was acting up). I'd recommend this property to anyone.
