We rented the beach house for a small wedding reception and it could not have been more perfect! All of the rooms were beautiful and well decorated, not to mention the entire house was very clean and well maintained for rental property. The home was fully stocked with everything you would need for your stay from glassware to beach gear! The owner was extremely pleasant and very attentive to our needs and details. Private beach access was right across the street with very little tourist however plenty of parking for all the guests who did not stay the weekend at the house in the public beach parking less than 1 mile away. Lots of shopping and restaurants in a small shopping village less than a mile in the opposite direction. The event was perfect, with no disturbances from any neighboring homes and passers by. I would highly recommend this property to anyone! Thank you so much for the most memorable weekend of my life!

Bambi.. We had a FABULOUS time. Your home, I should say palace, was extraordinarily comfortable, obviously well situated to both the beach and town, and best of all was "loaded" with all the goodies a family could ask for. My 18 month old granddaughter just adored the red flyer..I must have pulled her up and down the beach a hundred miles! My thirty year old and his new bride cruised around on the double bicycle. Lorri and I just relaxed in the sand chairs. The appliances in the home were great; everyone made their own breakfasts without having to run out. The family room was wonderful, allowing us to keep an eye on the little one, while keeping ourselves relaxed. Frank was the best.. I called him a number of times with small requests and questions, and he was extremely helpful...a very proud Floridian, ex New Yorker. He turned off the AC for us when it got too chilly, etc. We were raving about what a good time we had. Please read Lorri's poem
in the guest book. We think you have created a most special place in honor of your daughter, and we were glad to be part of it for even four days. I'm looking forward to returning with more of my family soon. Thanks...Michael
This is without a doubt the most beautiful home on Siesta Key and the perfect location! We had a marvelous time with our family and our friends who booked the front unit. The view from all the fabulous balconies was amazing! We enjoyed many nights around the pool, playing cards on the front balcony and loved how you could simply walk across the street to the amazing private sugar sand Siesta Key Beach. Our teenagers LOVED to walk to the Village every night for shopping and a bite to eat. Such a wonderful little place with nightlife and some fabulous restaurants like "The Cottage" which was our favorite. Also the "Daquiri Deck" is a must, we went twice! The sunsets were exquisite and we had perfect weather which of course made it wonderful. The one day it rained we went to St. Armand's Circle with the girls...the best shopping!!! So many great things to say about this fabulous rental home.
So, on the other hand to be totally honest, I was a bit disapointed in the lack of cookware and finding it mostly dirty. Perhaps having dish soap and some other cleaning products at hand would be helpful. I left behind those items for the next renter. Also having perhaps table salt, pepper and sugar at the bear minimum would really be nice addition too. There was not one large Chef knife so it was impossible to chop etc. All those items and more were in the front unit in double so we borrowed from there. We love to cook so it was a bit difficult. It is costly to purchase all these items and then just discard the upon departure. Also, we had difficulty communicating with the maintenance help or getting a quick return call as both of us couldn't figure out how to get the lights on for the Balcony for most of the say. But I must add that when he did arrive he was very helpful, super handy and very polite.
Aside from that we had a marvelous time and would recommend this lovely Case de Mariposa in a heart beat. We had several walker-bys ask about it, as it truly has the perfect feel and best location for that sensational area. Our family truly believes it was "The Best Vacation Ever"....
Thank you Bambi for opening up your amazing home and we hope one day to visit again!
We are two middle aged couples that have vacationed here for 5 years. We feel right at home and have everything we need to cook, chill & grill!
Comforts of home, convenience of beach-couldn't get any better.
Owner and maintenance staff always there when we needed something. Pool area just upgraded this year with pavers and pebbletech—so romantic and inviting.
Thanks again ! We'll see you next winter!
We first would like to say that the owner could not have nicer. Very responsive to all requests send questions via email. Also caretaker,Matt, was terrific. However we stayed here for a month. The place is old and needs updating. Kitchen is awful. No cooking ute cels or pots or the necessary dishes to be able to eat in. We love to grill but grill is old and broke down a few times. House has no comfortable seating for meals and entertaining.
House had no instructions on how to operate TV's send DVD's also with 5 flat screen TV's no HBO, movies on Demand, etc.
Probably be ides the non fungi owning kitchen, by the west refrigerator doors never closed properly. We had to love out of our suitcases. No dressers for clothing . Also the shades in the master bedroom were broken and never worked properly.
As we said location is beautiful.
This beautiful house provided all the amenities and then some for a wonderful week of relaxation for my family. We thoroughly enjoyed the comfortable and stylish furnishings and decor. No detail was overlooked, and we especially appreciated the fact that beach towels, coolers and beach chairs were included. The elevator was essential for moving our luggage up and down the three floors, as well as for carrying the groceries we bought. The kitchen is fully equipped, and we enjoyed cooking several meals and eating breakfast on the sunny balcony overlooking the pool with ocean views.
The house is located directly across from Beach Access #10 with a short walk to the lovely beach. The sand here is the nicest whitest sand I've ever seen, and that includes in the Caribbean! The pool is so nice for a quick swim or dip, and afterwards lying on the lounge chairs.
This was one of the nicest properties we've rented, and I would definitely return! Thanks, Bambi!
My husband,myself along with my married children and 2 grandchildren had a week stay here. It is a lovely home, our unit was the back one. The best thing about this rental is that it is located right across the street from the beach. I mean, right across, we had a beach access #10. It was a quick 5 minute walk from the front door to the white sandy beach. We had a few problems, that was corrected by the great handyman that came. The biggest problem was a storm came through, before we came in. The storm knocked out the Verizon box, for tv and internet use. It took 2 days to get fixed. The owner of the property was very apologetic for the situation. I just felt that the whole house should have been checked over, with all lights and appliances should have been checked prior to our arrival. The unit was extremely clean, with lots of extras in the kitchen to use. We had a lovely time. This unit is also very close to the main drag of Siesta Key, for a easy walk to the shops and resturants. So, it was easy to leave the car and walk to where we wanted to go. There were lots of beach toys, bikes, wagon to use. This was the first time for the grandkids ages 3 and 2 to experiance the beach and the first "whole" family vacation. It was a good time held by all.
