LARGE HOME SLEEPS 8. WALK TO THE VILLAGE. PERFECT FAMILY GETAWAY!

Siesta Key House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Full Bathrooms. Sleeps 8.

Relax, get away and enjoy Siesta Key's laid back lifestyle! Nestled in a quiet residential neighborhood, you’ll love this comfortable, 2,500 square foot private home. It has 3 bedrooms plus a loft, 2 baths, and with its two king beds and 4 twin beds comfortably sleeps 8. Air conditioned throughout, this home features all you’d expect, including a fully-equipped gourmet kitchen, separate dining room that seats 8, large, comfortable living room, cable TV/flat screen TV’s, washer/dryer, gas grill, and for those who want to bring their laptop to keep in touch, High Speed Internet/WIFI is included throughout. Also, enjoy the huge outdoor deck in privacy, leading down to the beautiful, backyard pool surrounded by lush, tropical vegetation.

Just ½ mile north of Siesta Village, it’s a short walk or bike ride to enjoy the Village’s many amenities (restaurants, pubs, gift shops, banks, P.O., drug store, etc.). Siesta Key Public Beach (#1 US Beach) is a little further (1.5 miles), however, many 'Free Ride' golf cart services are available and work for tips only. They pick you up at home and take you to the beach and back. A lot of fun!

Interested in an outing? The area boasts extraordinary cultural events and activities, like the Ringling Art Museum, Selby Botanical Gardens, Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium, and more. Take a short 15 minute drive to St. Armand's Circle to shop, dine, or just meander.

Or, wake up on Siesta Key every day with the sun shining. Stroll the village, spend the day fishing, relax on the sugar soft sandy Siesta Key Beach or go seashell hunting in this beachwalker’s paradise. But whatever you do, do not miss Siesta Key's magnificent sunsets. Enjoy!

Beautiful, Spacious, Multi-family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5
This listing was everything it stated and more. The layout of this home is perfect for two families with plenty of extra room so that no one ever feels like they are "on top of each other." We had a total of 8 guests stay at this property and you would never have known. As soon as we arrived and opened the front door- we were in love!! The loft was much larger than expected and added so much appeal to the living area. The kitchen was huge with plenty of counter-space to prepare meals for a large group with high-end appliances. The property was very clean and well stocked with all of your basic neccessities and much more. Another added benefit not mentioned in the listing is a sliding glass window that opens to an outside "bar" which made grilling easy. The bedrooms were spacious and the walk-in closets were so big that I do not believe anyone could ever run out of room. The bathrooms (not pictured) were perfect. There were separate areas for showering so that more than one person could utilize bathroom space at a given time. The patio/deck area (my personal favorite) was enormous with plenty of chairs to sit outside while enjoying the beautiful, tropical atmosphere that surrounds you. Our families loved having the use of a pool and spa all to ourselves during our vacation which was maintained/cleaned twice during the week of our stay. The village is a short walk- pretty much around the corner from the house with plenty of shopping, restaurants, and bars to choose from. There were closer beach access points to the property, but we chose to drive to other beach access points that included parking. The drive was only 2 or 3 minutes. I can honestly say that there is absolutely nothing that I would change about this property. Jim and his wife were a pleasure to work with and always responded to any questions or concerns in a timely manner. There is no doubt in my mind that we will rent this property again next year, and that seems like it can't come soon enough!!!!

quiet roomy retreat

  • 4 of 5
My husband, sister, brother and I stayed at this home 10 days. The house is as described. As mentioned by a previous reviewer the house is older and in need of some repair. The patio screens did not slide and were off track when we first arrived. A call to Jim was quickly responded to early the next day when he came to repair the sliders. The house was set up perfectly for us with the master suite on one side and the other two bedrooms and bath on the other side of the porch. this allowed for privacy. The patio was accessed from the living room and two of the bedrooms. The kitchen had a pass through window to the patio which was very convenient. We paid to have the pool heated and even with cooler nights it was pleasant to swim in especially followed by a soak in the hot tub. A pool cover would help retain the heat. The neighborhood was quiet and only a 10" walk to town and beach-if you used one of the beach access roads off Ocean. The backyard is private and jungle-like. Only recommendations are to up grade at least main tv to flat screen(no need to have tube tv's any more) and to clean/replace carpet. All in all a great find. Thanks, Jim!

Wonderful house!

  • 5 of 5
The house was amazing! The pictures don't do it justice. The wooden deck around the pool is huge and provided the perfect space to lounge and just hang out. The bedrooms are large and large closets for lots of storage. The bathrooms were large as well. Everything was very clean. We enjoyed our stay and plan to stay again next year. The only downside was we couldn't stay longer!

The house was an absolute tropical paradise. Any concerns were promptly addressed by the owner who was very charming. The neighbourhood was quiet and the village and beach access an easy 5 minute walk. We hosted our future in-laws with a barbecue dinner in a relaxed and gracious atmosphere. The end of our vacation came too soon and we would definitely rent here again in the future.

Great location

  • 5 of 5
The description of the listing was accurate except it didn't mention the two foam style
king size beds which were perfect for sleeping. The house was clean and neat, the pool was cleaned twice while we were there and everything worked as expected. The property is very quiet and secluded with beautiful natural foliage
it is relatively close to siesta village and the beach and both are within walking distance check a map for distance you may want to drive though. The owner stopped by once to check on us he was very pleasant and asked if we had any issues. The bathrooms worked well, AC was fine, full size washer and dryer looked new, we had no problems at all. This is a beautiful property on a beautiful island you wont be disappointed.

Great Get Away!

  • 4 of 5
This property listing was accurately described and pleasantly larger than the photos appear. Tho owner, Jim, was very easy to deal with when booking the reservation/negotiation and provided us with all the documentation that he said he would at the appropraite times.

I like the fact that there was no security deposit. Instead, your rental included a purchase of rental insurance. The house itself is a bit old and in need of minor maintenance but as a rental home it is perfect. Some of the baking wear is a bit worn but usable. Top of the line cooking range (Viking) which made it fun to cook on vacation.

While we were there, we experienced the A/C not working. The owner promptly returned my call and called an on-call A/C service repair to fix it same day, late the evening. Pleasantly surprised!

The property is a short walk to the village. VERY QUIET in comparison to others that we traveled with who stayed in the village. Worth the walk/drive for peace.

Pool well maintained, pool service came out twice per week. We were not bothered at all by the fact that there was no lanai. There was also plenty of toilet paper in the home!

Thanks for a nice stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words! Some months ago, we eliminated the need to take and return security deposits. Instead, included in your rental amount is a Property Damage Protection policy, which protects the property against accidental damage which may occur during your stay. With this protection, we no longer require a security deposit from our guests.

Also, we take your reviews seriously. As a result of your input, we recently re-stocked the house with a complete line of baking products. Cakes, pies, muffins, pizzas...it's all there just waiting for the baker's touch!

And yes, for those who value quiet, our home is perfectly situated. Close enough to be an easy walk to the Village...but in a quiet, private neighborhood.

Thank you for sharing your input. We find it valuable, and we're sure that future guests do as well!
