“MOONMIST” SIESTA KEY LUXURIOUS VILLA WITH PRIVATE HOT TUB IN A 'JUNGLE' SETTING

Siesta Key Villa Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 5

Moomist Villa is an idyllic setting to relax and rewind. It is located within Polynesian Gardens across the street from beautiful Siesta Key beach (Number 1 on the list of Top 10 most beautiful beaches in the USA). Out the front door you have a “peek-a-boo” view of the bay with boats cruising by. Out the back sliding doors you look on an ancient oak covered with resurrection fern, orchids & bromeliads & a stone path to your own private hot tub in the middle of the jungle of tropical flora.

When you walk in the front door you will be captivated by the arched ceiling painted to look like the sky. The living room is charming & tropical, the sun porch/TV room is comfy and cozy and has a sleeper sofa. The kitchen is properly “beachy” with open shelves & bamboo countertops. The master bedroom with a queen bed & wicker chests is a sanctuary ala Tommy Bahama style. The second bedroom has twin beds and is bright & Floridian.

SORRY: NO Smoking & NO Pets

GREAT VACATION AT MOONMIST

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I, along with our daughter and her 2 children (9 and 5) thoroughly enjoyed our time spent at Moonmist Villa! The property was clean and well-maintained. The swimming pool in the complex was also very impressive (impeccably maintained), and a short walk. It was as if we had our own private pool! The public beach and Siesta Key Village and shops were a short drive away! We were there over the 4th of July and the condos with beach access across the street were having nothing to do with letting us "cut through"to the beach!

Owner's Response: There are two convenient public beach accesses -- one is less than 1/3 mile south and the "main" public beach with lifeguards, bathrooms and a snack bar is about 1 mile north. Most of the time the condos across the street will let you cut through, but on holiday weeks they hire extra guards to keep non-residents from using their access.

NICE SURPRISE!

  • 4 of 5
When we came into the villa: it was clean, nicely decorated, pleasantly cooled down and music was playing. Very nice first impression that did not change during the stay. Lots of space for us - 2 adults, 2 kids. Good location, you can walk to the beach (well, try through the "dunes", not the other properties as we did) :-) - or drive to the beach - 3 minutes drive. Siesta Key is really nice, not overly commercialized. You will not find a mini golf every 50 yards which is a good thing! oh, the water temperature and the sand: amazing. And last but not least, Jeanette was very helpful!

JEANNETTE IS THE BOMB!

  • 5 of 5
Booked this house for December 1st. Unfortunately, we wound up being victims of Hurricane Sandy in Howard Beach New York, and our family lost two apartments and everything in them. It was obvious we weren't going to be able to make this trip. Jeannette was absolutely THE most fantastic person we've ever almost met. We were one of the more fortunate stories and were able to get assistance, temporary housing and finally found another pair of apartments two months later - NOT NEAR THE WATER. We moved into our new apartments on December 1st with trashbags of water-logged clothing and donated areo-beds . . . only wishing we were waterlogged from the beach and hot tub at Moonmist.

Under the circumstances, Jeannette was more than sympathetic and understanding of our situation and refunded our ordinarily non-refundable payment wiith NO hesitation, so that we could make ends meet until FEMA kicked in. THANK YOU, Jeannette - for helping us so that we could eat and put gas in our cars when the power came back to the stations.

We thank our lucky stars that she was so considerate, generous and helpful at a time when we were down and out. It's the one thing that went right for us. If this is how wonderful you are to people you havn't met - it's worth a trip down there just to shake your hand in thanks.

Needless to say, after all this stress - we're looking forward to finding a time when we can all re-book this vacation with Jeannette and sit back to reflect in the quiet and peacefulness of Moonmist.

Forgive this late post, but it's been a long haul and we're just starting to feel normal again.

Jeannette - you're a gem.
Our best to you - Marie Ricca and family

FAMILY VACATION AT MOONMIST IN SIESTA KEY

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation in the MOONMIST villa!! The accommodations were delightful. The location & space was everything we had hoped for our family of 4! It was conveniently located close to many restaurants and the beach. My kids were very excited to be able to drop a line and fish right on the property's dock. We will be certain to contact this renter for future vacations!!

CHRISTMAS IN SIESTA

  • 5 of 5
This was our first Christmas away from home! What a wonderful place to spend it.
we rented bikes from the rental place behind Captain Curts. The guys working there were great and what a great way to see the island! The Olde Salty Dog and the Blu Que resturants were very good and Captain Curts and the Broken Egg are always a must. If you want Tee/sweat shirts definately go to Siest Key Outfitters at the north side of the village! The owner was great!!! We all enjoyed the "Jungle" backyard! That tree is even better in person and we took turns in the hot tub too. I definately would recommend this place to everyone! The house was even better than the pis make it out to be and Jeanete was excellent to work with. Thanks for the small Christmas tre and Christmas music that was playing when we opened the door!

P.S. It snowed 10 inches back home while we were here!!!
