When people think of Siesta Key, they think of the famous white sand beach, and the eclectic and always busy village. But on the more southern end of the key,
beyond the Stickney Point Causeway, Siesta Key becomes a much more lush and tropical area where single family homes face Sarasota Bay or the Gulf of Mexico or the long stretch of Heron Lagoon.
Some of the homes are truly palatial while others are more modest. Home designs in the Tortoise Estate community have the flavor of Key West, Grand Cayman Island and, of course, classic Old-Florida style beach bungalows
For those who wish to avoid the more touristy areas, south Siesta Key will be a pleasant surprise. Along with all the other differences with the more northern sections of Siesta Key, local
Turtle Beach is a far different place from the renowned Siesta Beach. It is smaller, has more "ordinary" sand, and a steeper sloping beach, with more shells and rocks, but the gulf sunset views are
every bit as dramatic in this quieter setting.

opportunities in general, it would be my pleasure to assist you.
