We have been visiting Siesta Key for the last 15 years and have stayed in a number of homes in the area. This was the very best house we ever rented. The pictures do not do justice to the property. You will not be disappointed. We visited with a family that had everything from teenagers to 90 year olds, everyone loved the house. It's a short walk to the village and the beach. One of the grandparents could not walk very well, so he was driven whenever we took him to the beach but the rest of us walked there with no problems. The owner, Mindy is great. Even the maintenance supervisor introduced himself and offered to help with any issues but there were no problems so we never had to call him. We really enjoyed the house so much, we rarely went out for meals and that is a first for us. The house is large enough to accommodate two families. There are so many places to get some privacy in the house that no one felt smothered. There is also a lot of security gates and privacy so I felt safe. We were close enough to the village but not having to be right in the middle of the loud and busy crowds was very nice. We have rented in the past right on the beach, but this was actually better. The pool is great and we had BBQ's every night. Everything you need from beach chairs to floats even beach towels are right on the property. There was even sunscreen lotion. Mindy thought of everything. all you need to bring is your bathing suit. I would highly recommend the property. You will not regret it.
