Great location!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 stayed in the Honeymoon suite and even though it is a one bedroom we had plenty of room to spread out and get comfy. Our children are 7 & 8 and with the pull out sofa we had plenty of space. The view from the bedroom balcony to Siesta Key beach was a great way to wake up every morning. Kids loved the pool, and we enjoyed watching the birds enjoy the waterfall feature. A short walk to the beach, a slightly longer walk to downtown Siesta, it was THE place to stay!!! We hope to return next year.

Clean and Serene

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, both retirees in our 60s, loved Gumbo Limbo. Our biggest concern is that the places we choose to stay are clean and comfortable, with an emphasis on clean. Gumbo Limbo delivers on both counts. The carpet was clean, the bathrooms were spotless, and the bed was freshly made with clean linens. We both felt very comfortable staying in the Honeymoon Suite. (I guess you’re never too old!)

The location is terrific. It’s only a half block to the beach. You can be there in minutes. We both really liked the private, almost secluded setting of the complex. Even though it’s a half block from a busy (but slow traffic street), the complex was quiet. It had a sort of Zen feel to it. We liked the two balconies that looked down into the garden and pool. With the exception of one night when some frisky young girls splashed around in the pool, the area was quiet and peaceful.

The owner Virginia graciously allowed us to check in early because we flew in from the cold East Coast at an ungodly early hour, and had no place to go for hours. Virginia also met us at the condo, and was a delight to talk to. You get the feeling that she really cares and would correct any problem. She has a stockpile of beach chairs and umbrellas so you don’t have to rent the stuff. Very nice!

Now the place isn’t cheap, but I imagine it’s sort of in line with the cost of other condos in similar situations. As for room tips, just know that some of the units, like the Honeymoon Suite, have lots of steps. From the parking pad to the suite, there were a good dozen or more steps (well-lighted at night), and in the suite itself, there were 17 steps from the first floor to the bedroom on the second floor. It was not a problem for us, but would be for someone older or with bad knees or some such problem. That’s not a complaint; I’m just letting it be known. I’m sure that Virginia would also tell prospective renters of her own volition.

The following comment has nothing to do with Virginia or Gumbo Limbo, but be warned that traffic and parking in Siesta Key Village is virtually impossible (at least in mid-March). If you are able, you can walk the ¾ miles to the village or enlist the aid of any of the taxis that thrive there.

All in all, Gumbo Limbo is really nice if you’re looking for a clean, comfortable, and quiet place at the beach. I highly recommend it.

Great Location - Close to the Beach & Siesta Key Village

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed in the Royal Palm Suite. This was a perfect place for our family! It is a nicely kept home and the open layout was great. The rooms were clean, spacious and provided plenty of storage space. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed for cooking and having meals. The furniture and beds were very comfortable too. We also enjoyed having the beautiful pool and outdoor area with a grill to use. This house is only a block from the beach and a short walk to the village. Siesta Key beach is utterly beautiful and the sand is fine and pure white. A public beach is nearby which provides just the right amount of activity and people-watching as they walk the shoreline. The village is full of good restaurants, shopping, live music, coffee shops, ice cream (Olafs!) bike rentals...it's all there! Can't say enough, and we'll definitely want to stay here again on our next trip to Siesta!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

If you have a chance to visit Siesta Key you need to stay at Gumbo Limbo!!! In early March we stayed in the Hibiscus Suite and it was great!! We were on vacation for Spring Break with our two kids. The beach is literally 60 steps from the unit we rented. The owner of Gumbo Limbo provides beach chairs, umbrellas, buckets etc for your beach vacation. Siesta Village is just a short drive down the street where we enjoyed breakfast at Another Broken Egg and dinner at the Lobster Pot. Plus Siesta Key is the perfect location if you want to enjoy some Spring Training baseball as it situated on the west coast of Florida. You can make a short drive to Bradenton, Fort Myers, Sarasota and Tampa to watch any number of teams. I promise you will not find a cleaner property in the area. Oh it also has its own lagoon pool!! We have already booked a return trip for next year.

Fantastic place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Honeymoon suite at Gumbo-Limbo! It was spotless & had everything you could possibly need. Virginia is so welcoming and you can always reach her.You really don't need a car! The beach is 1/2 block & the Village is also within walking distance. Virginia can help you find some great restaurants! It is the best location on Siesta Key,believe me,we looked everywhere! You will never be disappointed if you stay here!

Wonderful getaway

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Gumbo Limbo with my in-laws recently, and everything about the property was fantastic. It's less than a block from the beach; the suite we stayed in (the Key West suite) is excellent and a great value; and Virginia was really great about taking our calls and getting back to us quickly if we had to leave a message. Everything was exactly as it appeared in the listing. It's also very close (less than 10 minutes drive) to restaurants, grocery shopping, parasailing rentals, and all that sort of thing. I couldn't really find anything bad to say about the place, and I think anyone who stays there will be happy with it.
