This home has its own new boat dock on the Grand Canal directly across the street. I consider this a waterfront view of the Grand Canal directly across the street from the home. I supply umbrellas and beach chairs to take to the beach. There is also a rolling ice chest. A little more information on the television service. I have Frontier Fios which includes high definition tv, 50/50 wired or wireless internet and unlimited long distance.

Wonderful house in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This house was everything it stated it was, we were not disappointed! Clean, well-maintained, good-size bedrooms, sunny lanai with a large backyard on a quiet street. Although it might look small on the outside it is a spacious 2-bedroom on the inside! Location is perfect, a short walk to the village and beach. Added bonus a dock across the street to enjoy while watching the fish jump! The owner Jim is very helpful and responsive--a delight! Total relaxation and did not have to worry about anything! Highly recommend!

This place had everything that we needed!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice place, a bit older but in great condition and well kept. It was about a 6 block walk to the beach and into town. The price was right! Jim, the owner was very friendly and accommodating!

We would stay here again!

I had a perfect week in Siesta Key and very pleased with my stay at Island Breeze. The house is clean, spacious and well equipped. The enclosed back yard was quiet and peaceful. You are able to walk into the village. The public beach is a 10 minute car ride. (Suggest you get their early for a parking spot.) You will see why it is one of the top beaches in America.

Thank you Vincent for sharing your beach house. I will be back.

Love our stay at Island Breeze

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying in Jim's house. The house has a short walk to the village and has short walk to beach. The house has a great beach theme. The house had all the beach gear we needed, chairs, cooler, umbrella, boogie board and sand castle toys for the kids. We would highly recommend staying here.

I loved staying here. The house was clean and nice and close to the village.

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for my family. We didn't know when we booked how booming this area was during our visit time. We were a short walk from the beach and restaurants and shopping, which meant no driving or parking was required. It was quiet, but still close to the fun. We were able to cook with the full kitchen and grill. We could hang out in the shade, or dangle our feet off the dock across the road while fishing, something my kids loved. This vacation was simply amazing. Jim, our host was so nice and helpful and just great to talk to.

Terrific Thanksgiving Week at Island Breeze and Siesta Key!!

  • 5 of 5

My Wife and I spent a fantastic week at Island Breeze, Siesta Key and everything that the Sarasota area had to offer. This property was fantastic on quite a few levels. We were immediately impressed with the "Beachy feel" of the place upon driving up and then entering the property. Very convenient for either a walk or a bike ride into town. The same with going over to the beach, which we now know why it is called the USA's #1 beach. Fantastic beach for either a morning walk or a bike ride. Plenty of people out and about every day and overall, the people of the area were very friendly. We had the opportunity to meet Jim and what a really good guy he is. Very accommodating and he wants to be certain that you are enjoying yourself at his property. We have no complaints, at all. We found the kitchen to have everything that we could possibly need for meals, as well as grilling outside. While on our trip, we fished, walked the beach, rode bikes all over town, brewery hopped and took nice drives to Venice, as well as up to Longboat Key, Bradenton and Anna Maria Island. We realized that we need much more than a week to fully enjoy all that the area has to offer. We absolutely loved the house, the area and the enormous amount of activities that are within an easy drive, bike or walk. We can't wait to go back and we also will be hoping to spend much more time at Island Breeze and Siesta Key. THANK YOU so much for a terrific stay!!
