Siesta Village, where there are many more shops and restaurants, is approximately 3 miles north of us.
There is also a complimentary free trolley that collects across the street and runs up and down the island until 10pm nightly. There are also multiple free rides that operate like a taxi service and provides free rides (tips are appreciated) anywhere on the village 7 days per week from 10am-2am daily. On the mainland of Sarasota, you will find an abundance of restaurants, local and chain types, shopping centers, movie theaters and nightlife.
You can expect to drive between 5-15 minutes to reach any of these places in Sarasota. Uber and Lyft is also very popular on Siesta Key and Sarasota.
We only have one parking space for each room, additional guest parking passes can be added for a $15 charge and is based upon availability. If you are traveling with more than one vehicle, please check the area for paid parking options as we cannot guarantee that each vehicle you bring can be parked here at the resort.
