About Nita Ettinger, Property Manager

We love Siesta Key Beach and biking on the beach early in the morning. Siesta Key is a great place to escape the cold winters of Minnesota and get out and play a little tennis & golf. We try to come down and enjoy the home and the beach as much as we can, which is never enough.

Nita Ettinger, Property Manager purchased this house in 2011

Why Nita Ettinger, Property Manager chose Siesta Key

We think it is in the best spot on Siesta Key. Easy on and off the Key and the proximity to restaurants, shopping, rentals etc. make it ideal.

What makes this house unique

We have a fantastic heated saltwater pool and the of course there is the spectacular white sand beach and Gulf of Mexico, which is just a 5 minute walk from the house - you can’t beat that!

AARP, the group that advocates for retirees, listed Siesta Key beach as the No. 1 beach of 12 to visit in 2015, No. 1 beach in the nation on TripAdvisor.com 2015 “Travelers’ Choice Awards.” The beach also was included on a list of the top beach destinations for spring break by Yahoo Travel.

Second Visit and Can't Wait for the Next!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to this little rental so we knew exactly what to expect. Last time we stayed in the

1 bed/1 bath unit so it was nice to stay in the larger 2 bed/2 bath unit. This rental is located in the cul-de-sac of a quiet street one block from the main road. The owners have thought of everything and anything that one might need while vacationing there! The units are very clean and cozy! The saltwater pool is awesome..whether you are spending the day in the shade/sun lounging by the pool or taking a refreshing dip in the early evening! Since we had my parents with us on this trip, we spent the majority of our time hanging out at the pool versus the beach.

The beach is about a 10 minute walk (assuming you are toting all you gear..chairs, cooler etc) but the owners have provided really nice beach carts to carry everything! Also within walking distance is a nice little deli/market makes delicious sandwiches, chicken salad, pasta salads, etc and they also carry almost anything that you forgot to pickup at the larger market (Publix). There are also several restaurants and bars within walking distance along with a good ice cream shop! Don't forget that if you want to go into the village, there are several "free" open air taxi services that work for tips that you can call and then don't have to worry about parking, drinking/driving etc.

We will definitely be back....hopefully sooner versus later!! Thank you for sharing your little piece of paradise!!

Can't wait to go back!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was a first SB to this area, but it certainly won't be our last. This house was perfect for our family. The house has everything you could want in a vacation home (fully stocked kitchen, gas grill, beach chairs and toys). The location is fantastic...isolated enough for privacy but close enough to the beach, restaurants, and grocery store (all within a few blocks). The property and the area are easily accessible for our teenager in a wheelchair. We rented a beach wheelchair ($115 for the week) which made beach access so easy. Bring your camera because the gulf views and sunsets are pretty spectacular. The heated pool was so wonderful (and private). The living room with its entertainment system was a great place to watch the NCAA tournament action. I will happily recommend this house to anyone headed to this area (except for next year at SB when we plan to be back). Thanks for helping us have a wonderful trip.

Love this home!

  • 5 of 5

Yes, I call this a home because we immediately feel at home here as soon as we arrive. This was our second stay at this property and it was everything we remembered it to be since our stay in 2012. The only reason we did not stay here in 2013 & 2014 was because it was already booked! The location is perfect, everything you need is within walking distance, including beautiful Crescent Beach. The weather was unusually cool for the first part of our visit so the heated salt water pool was a perfect alternative to the Gulf. We love Clayton's for dinner, a quick walk to the other end of the street! Plus, we were able to bring our little dog with us, the private location is perfect for him.

Nita is the perfect property manager, so friendly and helpful! The place is kept spotless by Amelia...thanks! The owner's, the Follases have turned their lovely home into the perfect vacation rental...can't wait to return next year!

Perfect place

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and our friends had a weekend getaway from the kids. We chose to stay here. We were a little confused as we thought this was a single rental property but found upon arrival that it was two rental units that shared the common building. Once we understood that we were very pleased with the accommodations. The pool was great and heated. The interior decor was modern and well equipped. Everything was clean. If we would ever come back with the kids this would be a perfect rental property if you book both sides of the house.

Within walking distance of several well known restaurants. The beach access across the main road was closed while were were visiting so we just drove to the public beach parking.

Highly recommend this rental property and Siesta Key in general!!!!!!

...a dream come true

  • 5 of 5

Our recent visit is one that we will never forget. As avid DIYer's, we never seem to slow down and are constantly working on our projects. Since we were coming to Florida for a wedding, we felt that this would be a good time to try & teach ourselves how to relax. From the time I contacted Nita about booking to the time we arrived back home, we couldn't have been more pleased with how smooth everything went. After having a couple of bad experiences with vacation properties we've rented, we were both very skeptical. We were truly blown away with this property. From the cleanliness, having everything one would need in a kitchen, the bed in the master bedroom, the pool... I could go on and on. Having a design background, it was so nice to be in a place that was not cluttered and was tastefully done with all the finishes matching. Some vacation rentals look like they've shopped at garage sales. Not so for this little piece of heaven. It was also very nice to have Clayton's at the end of the street. We ate there several times. Yes, we did learn to relax and hopefully we will return for needed retraining:)
