Live like a local with your home base in this private room and bath (the house is a split 2/2) with lots of light and it's super cozy and comfy. Grab your bikes, ride to the beach in about 5 mins. Two beach chairs too. The area is quiet, so relax, and enjoy. We've even got a cooks kitchen if that's your thing, and a delightful back yard to chill in between adventures.
P.S. Beach, great shopping and lots of great eats are super walkable. No traffic hassles when you can walk or bike.

The space

Nestled in a quiet neighborhood just off of the South Bridge to Siesta Key, you'll enjoy all the flavors of the Key without any hassles. Settle in to a sweet bungalow with lots of personality and a comfy vibe. Just grab a bike (we've got 2) and head over or walk to Siesta's Crescent Beach, in just 5 minutes you'll be stretched out in the yummy sun. Or forgo the beach for the scrumptious backyard deck to enjoy a bit of shade, birds and quiet. Another short walk takes you to multiple restaurants, shopping and grocery options.
Also available are beach chairs, beach towels and coolers if you are in need of those... and there's also a jitney service to take you to the beach if you'd like... for free!

Guest access

Guests have their own private room which can also be a sitting area. We've opted for a day bed and sleep sofa to make the room even more enjoyable during the day, should you like to work, read or just hang out. You'll also have access to the rest of the house (except for my personal space), the kitchen for coffee and whatever you'd like -- there's even a space in the pantry for you. Your bath is private and newly renovated. Most guests say they enjoy the comfortable vibe and easy access to all... including me! I'm here to help if you need it, or fade away if you'd rather. The area has lots to offer and I love to share about it. After all, I've been here for over 20 years.
You can rent a car, use Uber or walk/bike around, the point is its quite easy to get around.

Interaction with guests

I'm here if you need/want me, with my dog Wally. I do consulting work from home, and have lived here for a long time so can assist with getting you acquainted and share all the best spots to hang out. I love meeting my guests and getting to know them, its one of the joys of being a host!

Other things to note

We've set up 2 options for sleeping. One is a day bed, the other an awesome new comfy sleep sofa. Its amazing I must say! Surprising how great they make these now. :)

Judy's beach bungalow was adorable and eclectically and beautifully designed. It was a shared space, so a Judy stayed in her room/bathroom area and we had a separate area but access to the common room and kitchen. She had beach chairs and bikes for us to use and even offered a ton of great tips on places to eat in the area and even some ideas for my upcoming wedding! She was easy to talk to, super nice and her house was impeccably clean. We even met her cute dog Wally! You'll love this little house, and great quick proximity to the beach and village :)

This is a great location to relax and unwind. It's a quick bike ride or walk to the beach and very close to shopping centres and restaurants. You can easily drive up Siesta Key, park in the public lot to visit the public beach or walk to Stickney Point beach. Judy provides basic amenities so you don't have to pack towels and entras in your luggage. We had a great experience staying at Judy's.

Judy's home is a short walk to Siesta Key Beach. Her home is beautiful and peaceful within walking distance to restaurants, night life, shopping, etc. If you are looking to relax, restore, and recover from the stress of everyday life, this is the perfect place. Judy's home is comfortable and beautiful with a wonderful deck with song birds in the morning and star filled sky at night. Judy is a respectful and friendly host. We hope to return to this tranquil Airbnb.

Judy and Wally are terrific hosts. The location can not be beat. We biked two miles to Siesta Beach, rated the number 1 beach in America. The house is a little oasis. Back deck is perfect for morning coffee. Two thumbs up! I'll be back!

Me and my wife had the pleasure to live at Judys place for four nights. The house is really comfy and has a nice backyard where you can hang out and relax on lazy mornings. Take the bikes which Judy provides with during your stay to the lovely beach (Siesta Key, 5 min away). Judy was very helpfull and easy to connect with. Would definitely come back another time. Judy, we are missing you already! / Oskar & Stephanie

Judy is a great host with good suggestions for restaurants nearby and easy access to the beach. The house and yard are lovely. The location also is wonderful -- in a quiet neighborhood but really close to Siesta Key. We appreciated being able to borrow beach chairs and beach towels. (And bikes, though we didn't end up using them.)

Hi! Some say I'm a local since I've been here for over 20 years. I work from home, love this area and its 'pace' and peace. Looking forward to meeting you! I enjoy traveling the world, great food, and meeting new friends. This home is casual and comfortable and we look forward to hosting you!
