Relax at a Waterfront Resort in Siesta Key, FL

Located just south of Tampa and Sarasota, is the dog-friendly Turtle Beach Resort. They offer Caribbean-style waterfront cottages with kitchens, hot tubs, secluded patios and views. The resort's name comes from the turtle nesting area on the beach across the street. There is other wildlife around the resort as well, like dolphins, manatees, blue herons and pelicans. For dog lovers, this resort even has "Pet Islands." When the tide goes out, new islands appear about 200 feet away from their docks. This is a great area for your pooch to play. There is also a dog-friendly beach on the Gulf of Mexico, just north of the resort. Rates for the cottages range from about $195 to $385 per night, depending on the season and size of the cottage. There is a pet charge added, which is about 10% of the daily room rate.
