My family and I stayed from Sept 6-12 and we could not have had a better time. The pictures of the house - as great as they are - do not do the actual house justice. So much bigger than I had anticipated - and clean, too! My wife and I both commented on how even the bed comforter felt like home.
Vic was always available for any question we had, and even stopped by the first day to drop off pool toys for the kids.
Every room offered a balcony, and the rooftop balcony was a great addition, as we spent most evenings up there, watching the distant storms in the Gulf. The beach at the end of the street was very clean and not crowded what-so-ever.
As far as the offered amenities, the kitchen was stocked with any utensil you would ever need (including sippy cups for kids). The beach cart in the garage was a life-saver, and the bicycles were a blast to use to cruise around Siesta Village. Which, btw, Siesta Village offered a great variety of food, as well as bar/nightlife.
It's only been a few days since we left, and we all miss it! Truly was a home away from home! Thanks Vic!
