About the property

Castle, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

This enchanting, two-story, canal-front ‘castle-like,’ private home with pool and spa is situated on Siesta Key within a block of the village and short walk to the beach. With four tastefully decorated bedrooms, three and a half baths, granite tiled kitchen, and large living space, there is plenty of space for the whole family. Whether you are poolside, cruising the canals or strolling on the crystal white sand, Castle on the Key provides the luxuries you deserve during your island stay.

This house is only a block from the center of the village and very convenient to several beaches. You can stroll to a variety of restaurants, boutiques, grocery stores, other specialty shops, and nightlife. Guests can enjoy the natural beauty of Siesta on foot, bike, boat, or kayak. Visitors also enjoy nearby Sarasota for world class marinas, art galleries, theater, and recreational amenities. Also your family’s Disney trip is only two hours drive.

Our home features decorated rooms, and plenty of space for a large family. Outside you will enjoy the 30 by 14 lagoon pool, large spa, and brick terrace sundeck. There is also a mini-castle in the rear for pool stuff- next to the canal, we have a 20 ft dock and bench at the water. We have an outdoor gas grill and outdoor patio area.

We have a nice varieties of palm trees and tropical landscaping as well as our Banyan tree near the water.

Great location, plenty of room, run down, needs work

  • 3 of 5

My family and I arrived at the castle house around 7pm on the day we were scheduled to arrive. We walked across the rickety draw bride ( hazard- board and nails sticking up ) over a coy pond into the house and opened the door to find an uncleaned house. The house was littered with garbage and dirty laundry. My family and I were forced to clean for 2 hours just to get it to an acceptable point. The next day the cleaning people did come and did a great job but... arriving to a clean house would have been preferred. The house has plenty of rooms, two kitchens and 4 separate bedrooms. Aside from the ample room and perfect location this house fell short of my expectations. The molding, furnishings, and carpet are run down and need to be replaced as soon as possible. The pool is very nice and the hot tub as well. The is ample seating in the back and on all of the porches. Personally I believe this house would be best suited to host a large number of guests who’s intent is to party. The house is large and situated in an optimal location yet not up to par for this price range.

Enjoying the Castle.

  • 5 of 5

We, 5 of us, enjoyed our second stay at the Castle. We like it so much last winter that we booked it again for this year. It is a large roomy house with plenty of space for entertaining and relaxing. The outdoors is wonderful with the pool, the spa, and plenty of seating around the dining table or on the dock overlooking the canal. Great house for socializing.

Needs a bit of TLC, but is furnished with nice linens and towels. The proximity to downtown Siesta Key is wonderful, a short walk to many dining spots and evening music as well as the beach.

This was a great place for 3 families to get together. It is spacious and we loved the pool area.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. Great location - close to town and an easy walk or bike ride to the beach. The only complaints is that the oven was upstairs and also there are a lot of nails around outside that could be hammered in (we ended up hammering in a lot of them). But overall this was s great place for our family to meet up and stay for the week.
