Moomist Villa is an idyllic setting to relax and rewind. It is located within Polynesian Gardens across the street from beautiful Siesta Key beach (Number 1 on the list of Top 10 most beautiful beaches in the USA). Out the front door you have a “peek-a-boo” view of the bay with boats cruising by. Out the back sliding doors you look on an ancient oak covered with resurrection fern, orchids & bromeliads & a stone path to your own private hot tub in the middle of the jungle of tropical flora.
When you walk in the front door you will be captivated by the arched ceiling painted to look like the sky. The living room is charming & tropical, the sun porch/TV room is comfy and cozy and has a sleeper sofa. The kitchen is properly “beachy” with open shelves & bamboo countertops. The master bedroom with a queen bed & wicker chests is a sanctuary ala Tommy Bahama style. The second bedroom has twin beds and is bright & Floridian.
