Outstanding stay on Siesta Key!!
Date of Stay

January, February and March 2018 is my third annual visit at Tropical Hideaway. After owning a seasonal home on Siesta Key for 18 years I sold it 4 years ago to "simplify my life" and eliminate concerns when away for 8+ months. Tropical Hideaway has been a wonderful and easy transition. Rich and Ali have been outstanding landlords/hosts and the house is very comfortable, clean, well appointed and a joy to live in. Located close to the beach and the village is ideal. I recommend their properties without hesitation.

Wonderful place!
Date of Stay

My wife and I spent three months in TROPICAL HIDEAWAY COTTAGE and enjoyed everything about the house and the location. The yard is fenced so our little dog had a wonderful and safe visit also. Rich and Ali Light had remodeled the kitchen and baths just before we arrived and everything was clean, fresh and comfortable. The house is surrounded by lush vegetation, gravel paths and there is even a small waterfall/pond. This is a comfortable, secluded location and only a short walk to the Siesta Key Beach. Siesta Key village is nearby with nightlife, restaurants, grocery, hardware, drug stores and a bank. All the wonderful attractions of Sarasota are 10 - 15 minutes away. We loved our visit and are signed for next winter. Great house, great location and wonderful landlords. Happy restful vacation!

Situated in the quiet and welcoming neighborhood of Palm Island, the heart of Siesta Key. This beautifully private bungalow sits back from the street and is set in gorgeously secluded tropical gardens. The fabulous surprise of a two story massive flagstone lanai is awaiting behind the zen gate. This home is comfortable and is made for entertaining from its open floor plan in the main living area to the outside summer kitchen and dining area under the covered porch with leads onto the lanai.  

   The master bedroom has a walk-in California closet for ample storage. The second bedroom has a custom home office with built-in desk, storage, filing, closet, and a full sized murphy bed for your guests. There is a laundry room with washer and dryer and pantry with plenty of storage. The powder room is located off of the kitchen.

   This property has all the amenities; new HVAC, microwave oven, dishwasher, refrigerator, oven with stove top, tub/shower, tile throughout, and ceiling fans. Renovated with new kitchen January 2016.
