We'll be happy to help you get the most out of your stay. And we're here to answer your questions, recommend outings, activities or restaurants. We're there if you need us. The NeighborhoodOur Grand Canal neighborhood is quiet and friendly. You'll see folks out walking their dogs, jogging, biking and even a Segway or electric car or two. You may even spot a manatee in the canal, wild parrots, ground owls, ospreys or even a bald eagle in the Norfolk Pines and palms - our Siesta Key is a bird sanctuary.
