Guestbook comments from the owner

We came from the Polar Vortex to Siesta Key and what an awesome change of scenery and atmosphere. I brought my 92-year old Mom who thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful view from the cozy, comfy chair in the Sun Room. It gave her much peace. The convenient elevator in the building made it easy for her to come and go. The condo is clean and beautifully furnished, and the kitchen area well equipped and roomy.



For walkers, Siesta Key Village is a short and pleasant walk from the condo. Of course, with Mom we drove everywhere; so everything from Church, to the Village with its cute restaurants and shops, and of course,, the beach was very convenient.



A great place to vacation and rest and very importantly, the price was right.

Beautiful condo, great location and views

  • 4 of 5

First of all, we were notified by the owner four days before our stay that our property had been double-booked by HomeAway and Flipkey and that she wouldn't be able to honor our commitment. It seemed that one or the other of these organizations had booked the property and not marked it as "unavailable." The owner, who was not at fault for this error, was beside herself and was trying unsuccessfully to get ahold of HomeAway. After I protested strongly and said we had 5 plane fares on the line, she relented and gave us the property, notifying the other party (of two) that they would be moved elsewhere when she found a suitable placement, which, apparently she did, thanks to a cancellation. That is a potential everyone should know about when they book through HomeAway or Flipkey!

When we arrived, we were delighted with the property! All rooms were nicely appointed and beautifully decorated. The condo was clean and in good condition. The condo is located just across the street from the beach and the Gulf, and the view from the lanai is spectacular! People-watching from the lanai was also entertaining as there were several picnics going on during the week of our stay, approximately five beach weddings, and many, many passersby.

The storage unit for beach chairs, umbrellas, and toys was extremely convenient to the condo, making the short walk to and from the beach as easy as it could possibly be. "Our" section of beach was up from the beach area with a parking lot, and so it was not nearly as crowded as the section a few blocks down.

Although we did very little cooking, the kitchen was extremely well-equipped with high-end appliances. Dishwasher was very quiet. Bedrooms and bathrooms were aligned nicely for noise buffering and privacy. Bathrooms are very beautifully remodeled, but just a bit cosy.

Our only glitch during the week was the operation of the three smart TVs. The great room TV worked fine but was missing the HDMI cable, the master bedroom TV didn't work at all, and the remote for the TV in the second bedroom had been misplaced (suggestion: label the remotes). Fortunately, the weather was gorgeous, and we didn't really need the TVs! The Comcast service person told us that when the condo was remodeled, the rewiring was not done correctly, and the master bedroom TV would never work properly until this wiring issue was resolved.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Unfortunately there was a booking error made on Flipkeys behalf which in turn created a double booking. I have never in my time with Homeaway had any problem whatsoever with any of their services. Since Flipkey created this occurrence I have pulled my advertising from them. We work effortlessly and strive to make sure ALL of our guests are well taken care of and leave our property extremely satisfied!! This, in fact, was a first time experience for me with a double booking and can assure you that it will never happen again!! Thank you for warning the public about our experience with Flipkey. On another note, the cable has been repaired in both bedrooms. The following guests have had no problems. Unfortunately another first time experience for us. All in all I am glad you were pleased with the property. The Calm at Siesta has had overwhelming response from our guests since we started. I hope that you and your family will return again and can assure you there will be no more dealings with Flipkey bookings. Thanks again, Sandy

Relaxing, beuatiful vacation spot.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year at this condo, and we once again thoroughly enjoyed our week. The beach view from the glassed-in lanai is beautiful. The location is perfect for a morning walk along the beach and a lazy afternoon in the sun and surf! The location on Siesta Key, the furnishings and the amenities are great. Unit is very clean and all the supplies that you need for comfort and beach time are available. Sandy was very communicative before the rental and available for questions during our stay. We'll be back again next year!

Great Location @ the Perfect Beach in Siesta Key!

  • 4 of 5

Calm @ Siesta was a really nice vacation home for us. Photos on the website do not do the condo justice! Breathtaking as soon as you enter--with ocean views straight ahead in the sunroom. Just fantastic! Clean, spacious & very comfortable. A 'freshness' is evident, with upgrades, new furniture & attention to detail throughout. The owner was great to work with, always available-returns all call, emails, texts etc. Master bedroom very nice, great comfortable bed & recently upgraded masterbath was in great shape. Dolphin sightings daily with great views from MB & sunroom. Fantastic access to SK beach--the best beach on the island & plenty of beach accessories available for great beach days!. The condo is a corner unit, 2nd fl w/ unobstructed, direct view of the Gulf. Walk to the beach, plant chairs for great beach days in under 5 minutes!. Lack of washer-dryer in the unit is not perfect situation, but W-D is available down the hall. Overall the Calm @ Siesta Key is a truly great, great value. SK Village--great places for breakfast (Sun Garden Cafe, Another Broken Egg, Bonjour French Cafe, Village Cafe-Wonderful food w/ experienced service- a great place for breakfast !!!!) Best dinner: Ophelia's a few miles south of the Village in Turtle Beach. SKOB is decent stop-comfortable outdoor setting. Best Pizza-hands down--NewJersey transplants: Solarzano Bros on Avenida Madera-Awesome Pizza, meatball part subs. For us a great 1st visit to Siesta Key, and we will be back for more Calm in Siesta!

Perfect holiday vacation getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I stayed at The Calm at Siesta Key over Thanksgiving and had an absolutely perfect vacation! The condo is extremely clean with very nice and comfortable furnishings, even better than the photos portray. We loved being right across the street from the beautiful beach and just a short walk or bike ride to the bars and restaurants. This condo is located is a very nice part of the island. We had everything we needed in the kitchen to cook meals. Sandy was wonderful to work with. Not only did she make sure we had everything we needed on the day of arrival but also provided great restaurant recommendations. We highly recommend this to anyone looking for a nice beach vacation and we hope to return again soon!
