Jack and Heidi Christiansen - Owners Cozy Cabana West

We both grew up spending summer days at various lakes around Michigan.  Water and sand have been a constant in our lives. Now living in Indiana, we long for sun, water and sand much of the year.


Heidi’s family has been living and vacationing in the Sarasota area for years, in fact it was on a visit to her grandparents home when Jack fell in love with her and the area.

When looking for Wedding venues in the spring of 2009, Jack’s mom had rented a place on Anna Maria Island and in 4 short days we knew not only where we would be married, but also that at some point in our lives we would own a little piece of this paradise.  We were married on Longboat Key later that year and have returned to the island every year since.

When Cozy Cabana hit the market we knew we had found our perfect vacation home on the island. We look forward to having you as our guests!
