I recently took the position of manager of Turtle Beach Resort and Inn, Siesta Key, Fl.

I would like to pitch a travel story angles editors and writers. We have 2 properties, one on Sarasota Bay and the other on a lagoon overlooking Turtle Beach. We are waterfront with lush tropical grounds and the best sunsets on the island. Siesta Key is a destination for the pristine waters and the many uninhabited islands designated as natural habitats for wildlife. There are more than 220 species for birdwatchers to scope out: pelicans, osprey, herons, egrets, sanderlings and eagles are among them. May through October is sea turtle nesting season and Sarasota County boasts the largest loggerhead nesting rookery on Florida's west coast. Other species that nest along the Gulf Coast include green sea turtles and, occasionally, Kemp's Ridley's. The waters here are teeming with fish, dolphins and manatees.
The Resort is a boutique hotel with 20 cottages and studio units. We are pet and boater friendly as we have docks located at mile marker #48 on the intercoastal waterway . We host many Honeymooners and many actual travel here for destination weddings and get married right on the property. Each cottage has a private patio with private hot tub, hammock, and kitchenettes. Guests have access to kayaks, canoes, bicycles, fishing gear, 2 heated pools and guest laundry. We have 3 restaurants in walking distance from the hotel and we are steps to Turtle Beach.
We were recently featured in Southern Living, The Boston Globe and the NY Times Travel Guide. Siesta Key was recent;y named #1 beach in America by Dr. Beach.

We would love to extend an invitation for writers and editors to come visit our resort and share their experiences with their readers.

I look forward to hearing from you.
