5* All the Way

  • 5 of 5

We returned in May for our second visit to this property and and it was just as good as our first visit, if not better. Excellent villa in an excellent area would highly recommend this property.

A lovely home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Turtles Nest is an extremely well equipped villa in a great location. As keen cyclists, the villa was ideally positioned for access to the Legacy Trail. My family of six adults were very comfortably accommodated. The villa is well kitted out, with everything we needed for a day on the beach. A quiet and safe residential area, with very easy access to Sarasota and Venice. We would highly recommend Turtles Nest and hope to return ourselves one day.

Turtles Nest - A Slice of Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been holidaying in Siesta Key, Sarasota area for ten years and this is by far the best accommodation we have ever stayed in. The pictures of the villa do not do it justice. It is spotlessly clean and located in an upscale neighbourhood, close to the Legacy Trail and a short drive to Nokomis or Siesta Key beaches. The villa is equipped with everything you would need. We enjoyed the pool area which overlooks a lake and conservation area and benefits from all day sun.

We enjoyed our stay at Turtles Nest so much that we will be returning next May for another vacation.

I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a delightful vacation.

The owner Tony is very easy to deal with and nothing is too much trouble for him.

Owner's Response: We truly appreciate you sharing your experience of staying at Turtles Nest and pleased to hear that it's the best Sarasota/Siesta Key accommodation you've stayed in. Next year we look forward to welcoming yet another guest party back. Thank you!

Excellent Vacation Property

  • 5 of 5

My family of three enjoyed a vacation at the house, during the last two weeks of July 2016.

The pictures do not do the house justice, we found the property to be clean spacious and well kept.

The estate/neighbourhood was great, you are not overlooked at the rear elevation, which enjoys the sun all day.

We found ourselves relaxing more than we thought by the pool.

The house is well stocked with beach chairs, cool boxes and bikes. The owners are massively helpful and respond to questions very quickly.

We were first time visitors to the Sarasota area, we found the location of the house to be excellent.

There really is something for everybody, Walmart and Target close by, Westfield mall around ten minutes away, with a Costco, which allowed us entry on our English card. Outlet mall and more upmarket University town centre mall around a 20 to 30 minute drive, great beaches, bars and restaurants. The legacy walking/biking trail, is an added bonus to those who feel active.(can be accessed within five minutes from your doorstep.)

Cannot recommend enough!

We are looked at going back next year.

Owner's Response: Great to hear that Turtles Nest exceeded your expectations and that we have yet another family who want to stay again (and for longer next time!). As our guests are finding out, the property is in a quiet residential leafy backwater yet only a 10/15 minute drive to beautiful beaches and waterways, bars/restaurants, supermarkets, shopping malls, movie theaters and Costco!

Wonderful Property

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six stayed at Turtles Nest and we really loved it - it was clean, spacious and the screened pool /patio area was fantastic with a delightful, peaceful outlook onto the lake. The house is suitable for all ages and we enjoyed the house so much that we often stayed home all day.

The house was immaculate and is thoughtfully furnished with everything you need for your holiday. You really do only need to bring yourselves and your clothes. The kitchen cupboards were well stocked with basic essentials, and so were the bathrooms (e.g. soap, shampoo etc.).

Everything you need for outdoor activities was also provided e.g. beach chairs, umbrellas, bikes etc.

The location is great for access to the beach (around 10 minutes drive to Nokomis), but there are miles of beach along the coast to explore. Siesta Key beach is also very close. The sub division is immaculate so it’s a pleasure to return home.

The owners have been super helpful throughout the whole process.

I cannot recommend this house enough.

Thank You For an Absolutely Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rent in this area often to spend time with family and still have our own privacy. This house is perfect. It gave us the ability to invite them over for a family dinner and have a relaxing day by the pool. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful; the house is immaculate and has everything you need including soap, shampoos, and paper products if you are too tired to hit the store right away after a long day of travel. The pool and seating area out side is extremity comfortable and clean. The owners were quick to respond and very accommodating throughout the booking process. We like it so much, I do believe we will become regular renters if they'll have us! As for the location the area sells itself, tons to do close by and more within a 3 hour drive, just google it! The owners have provided you with all you need to have a great day staying home; hitting the beach; or riding the previous days Margarita calories away on a morning bike ride!

Thank you!
