We greatly enjoyed our 2 months in the Blue Lagoon cottage. Anyone considering Siesta Key will enjoy staying in any of the cottages offered by Rich and Ali Light. They are well maintained and Rich and Ali go out of their way to be sure their guests enjoy their stay. Detailed information was provided in the Blue Lagoon about dining and other activities. Rich and Ali will be sure you have information not only about Siesta Key but also about the activities that are available in Sarasota. Not only were we made to feel welcome, so was our Yorkie. The streets around the cottage provided a safe environment for our dog. Many thanks to Rich and Ali for making us feel so welcome. Tom and Judy

Serene and Sweet Island Cottage
We loved our stay at Blue Lagoon Bungalow. Well cared for and super clean. One of Florida's old-time beach bungalows. Fun colors, beautiful artwork, lovely and well-maintained landscaping. Just bring your suits. The cottage has everything you need from beach towels to bicycles. I loved that it had its own washer and dryer. Just charming.

Very comfortable and well located.

Blue Lagoon was comfortable, nice lot, great screened porch, and was an easy walk to the beach and the village. House was full of information on what to do, where to go, and owner recommendations. Rich, Ali and Chloe (Girl Scout cookies) live nearby and are very helpful. The village is loaded with good restaraunts. And February weather was perfect. Be sure to catch a sunset.

FANTASTIC Stay at Blue Lagoon! Highly recommended

My wife, I and our son's family of 4 just got back from a FANTASTIC stay in the Blue Lagoon, located a short walk to the most amazing beach and near the Siesta Key village which has ample restaurants, shops and great music, food and drinks. The house and grounds are private, spacious, very comfortable, authentic Florida and always impeccably clean. The large screened in front lanai and back deck by the lagoon are particularly favorite gathering points and places to enjoy the warm Florida climate. Rich and Ali the owners and their daughter Chloe are terrific. They expertly maintain and stock the property, including extras like bikes, lounge chairs and sand toys. They also gave us endless possibilities on what to see and do and where the best spots to eat are throughout the region. This is our 3rd year in a row enjoying this slice of heaven and we have only sampled a small part of what is available. We HIGHLY recommend this property and owners.

Best Kept Secret in Siesta Key - Plan to Stay at Same House for next 25 Winters

We love the place we found on VRBO. It was Better than the listing description and the photos provided a were very accurate picture of the house. The house is fairly priced and meets all of our needs and the needs of our two cats who insist on coming with us to Florida. They love sitting on the screened porch at night with the lights out. We have several waves of family come and visit us each year. Lots of room for our family to stay. Our daughter with husband and our two granddaughters has already "volunteered" to visit us each winter for the next 25 years we plan to rent the same house. We have been there for three winters and have put together a four-page list of things to do and places to visit in the Sarasota area. There are many things for children and adults to do in the area, e.g., boat harbor cruises, Big Cat Habitat (safe-haven for many big exotic animals), Drum Circle at the beach, etc. The owners of the property we rent are excellent in helping with our every need, to include finding a cat pet-sitter when we had to fly home unexpectedly for a parent in her final days. We would highly recommend this property to anyone - family or friend, just not for the months we rent it. We have traveled to many countries around the world, and to all 50 states. This is an excellent property with wonderful owners.

Always BLUE upon leaving Blue Lagoon

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.

Blue Lagoon

An airy but cozy bungalow on Siesta Key, Blue Lagoon.

The Blue Lagoon is the perfect tropical getaway right in the heart of Siesta Key - just steps away from the award winning white sand beach or an equally short stroll to Siesta Key Village; which has amazing shops and plentiful restaurants.

The Blue Lagoon is in such a fantastic location, so close to everything Siesta Key has to offer, yet situated in a lovely peaceful part of the island.

You are welcomed into this home through the front lanai which overlooks the lush tropical garden. The gorgeous refinished original hardwood floors then lead you through this beautifully maintained, 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom home.  The family room has a glass wall which opens onto a fabulous back deck, why not sit and while away the time overlooking the tidal lagoon, this is Florida time, welcome to paradise.
