Our LILY PATCH BUNGALOW was featured in Sarasota Magazine Living In Paradise, October 2009 Issue, as one of 'Our Cities 10 Most Beautiful Homes'

Situated in the quiet and secluded neighborhood of Palm Island, the Lilly patch is a cozy pecky cypress with two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Hardwood floors throughout add to its charm. Double sets of French doors lead from the living and dining rooms onto the large private Mexican tiled screened porch surrounded by lush tropical vegetation. The master bedroom has a stall shower with an outside entrance to an outdoor shower. In just a short stroll you can be on the famous Siesta white sand beach or in the quaint Siesta village for everything you may need including great restaurants and shops - it is a perfect winter getaway.

Siesta Key, Sarasota, Florida is on the Gulf of Mexico. Fly into Tampa and drive a little over one hour south on I-75 to exit 205, or fly into Sarasota and taxi or rent a car and in fifteen minutes you're here!

About Ali and Rich Light

We are Ali, Rich and Chloe Jane Light. We moved to Siesta Key in 1997 and have never looked back. We absolutely love living here and sharing our paradise with our guests. We have been renting our six cosy bungalows since 1998. Ali is an artist and has drawn inspiration for colors and design of our bungalows from our travels to Hawaii, Ireland, and the British Virgin Islands. Rich was a custom design home builder and landlord for many years in the Philadelphia region, so together we have found the perfect match for having beach rentals.

Ali and Rich Light purchased this bungalow in 1998

Why Ali and Rich Light chose Siesta Key

When we moved to Siesta Key in 1997 we knew that we wanted to be able to share this gorgeous area with others and having rentals seemed to be the perfect way.

What makes this bungalow unique

The unique benefit of staying at our properties are the ability to walk right to the beach and village, or we provide bicycles so you can explore the island. We are always available and live just a few doors away from most of our places. We are always excited to share our favorite places and restaurants so even our single guests feel like they have family here.

Relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

I had a very relaxing enjoyable vacation at the Lilly Patch with the greatest people in the greatest village by the greatest beach in the greatest neighborhood.

Ali and Rich and the Lilly Patch were a real joy. Comfortable, clean house and they were there for anything I needed including borrowing paper for my computor.

They are great host. So open and sharing and they make you feel very comfortable.

I felt like I was living in a garden as I sat on the lovely brick porch.

Love the out door shower. I am looking forward to coming back next year.

Charming vintage Florida bungalow

  • 5 of 5

This is a review of "Lily Patch," a charming bungalow where my family and I spent the month of October 2013. The vintage cypress-wood Florida bungalow has been beautifully maintained inside and out. It is located on a large corner lot in a quiet residential neighborhood just a short walk from the white sands of Siesta Beach, or from the shops and dining of Siesta Key village. The outstanding feature of "Lily Patch" is the large screened lanai which runs along one side of the house and is accessed by double French doors from the interior. We spent much of our time here, enjoying the lovely lawn plantings and the song of mockingbirds and doves. The rooms in the bungalow are spacious and the furniture is comfortable. The central air conditioning works really well, and each room has a ceiling fan. An outside shower is useful for washing off beach sand after a swim. The large kitchen is well equipped with all necessary appliances. All in all, we consider "Lily Patch" a gem of a property in a special place, and we definitely will return.

Location, location, location

  • 5 of 5

On the beautiful Siesta Key, Palm Island bungalows are a premium. I could hear the surf from this property, as well as the bells from St. boniface church. Just 2 short blocks from the gorgeous beach, and a perfect stroll to the village for dining at any one of many restaurants, the location means much in season when parking is a premium on the island. This bungalow is in a lush setting with exotic tropical landscaping. Cozy outfitting for the interior. The neighborhood is a safe one and is visitor and dog friendly. Owner is most helpful with recommendations and accommodations

Always BLUE upon leaving Blue Lagoon

  • 5 of 5

What can I say! Incredible Cottage! Location is perfect. A short 2 block walk to the most beautiful location on the most beautiful beach in the US of A!!!!! Access. The Blue Lagoon is accurately portrayed in the pictures posted and is very clean and well maintained. The layout is open and very cozy! What they say down here very 'Old Florida' charm. Close enough to walk/bike to Siesta Key Village with lots of great restaurants. Eat Here and Flavio's being my favorites in the village for dinner and the Sun Garden cafe a must for breakfast. Very peaceful and quiet location. Luv sitting on the screen porch and reading w/ a glass of wine! Rich and Ali are great hosts with a plethora of local knowledge regarding everything fun to do in the area. A+ and you won't be disappointed! My pup Hogan loves the porch too and walking the neighborhood. Great dog beach in nearby Venice or Bird Key in Sarasota.
