Guestbook comments from the owner

Again, we had a wonderful time! Easier to leave this time as summer will be beginning on Cape Cod...Check out Morton's Gourmet Market (Unbelievable) on Osprey Ave. and Simons Coffee House (Best veggie chips we've ever had) on S. Tamiami Tr. Also Bijou (Near Main St.Sarasota) Great upscale restaurant (reasonable prices, food amazing).

Can't wait to return in November. (Guest book entry)

The location of this villa couldn't be better ~ right next to pool and within a few minutes to the beach. Large pool is heated and always plenty of chairs. Villa has a great layout, with space for everyone. The gigantic TV in the LR has its own sound bar; unbelievable sound for all channels (we only watched late-night TV because no one was inside during the day).

There is no other way to go but in a villa. There are no neighbors to hear through the walls or ceilings. The kids made friends at the pool and we enjoyed everyone we met at the complex.

We found everything we needed in the nearby village - restaurants, deli, gift shops, liquor stores, and groceries. The grocery store is way overpriced, so take the time to head over the bridge to Publix. We ate out each evening, sometimes taking the free trolley to hit the bars. Looks like the new Daquiri Deck will be opening soon.

We will be back before another year rolls around. What is there to not love on Siesta Key? Oh, did I mention the perfect weather?

Perfect !

  • 5 of 5

This villa is near the pool, but not too close to hear any noise/kids. We liked not having to use the elevator, and the unit was spotless when we arrived. Villas offer an opportunity to sit outside, rather than just sit by the pool. The bikes were super useful - we used them every day.

This is Florida living at its best!

Wish I Were Still There

  • 5 of 5

Very large, well laid out villa. Bedrooms are in the back, so there is no TV noise for those early to bed. Ground floor gives you the option to sit in or out; lanai is perfect for those who want to be outside but avoid the bugs. Location is perfect - one of the quietest condos we have ever stayed in. So nice not to hear neighbors, kids crying, or car doors slamming. We stayed in the condo building last year and had to deal with street noise, garbage and delivery truck noise, etc. Too much density for our tastes. This villa is an oasis in this family-friendly complex. We used the pool every day and grilled out several times. Go and see for yourself!

Totally laid-back vibe

  • 5 of 5

Great location in a peaceful complex. No street traffic, no noise (unless you count the birds and owls), no nosy neighbors. Short walk to the beach, with all beach equipment included. Go back in the evening for the sunset - it is a tradition. Easy booking, check-in and check-out. We have already booked for next year!

Would not recommend

  • 1 of 5

Siesta key is lovely and we enjoyed the area and all the restaurants and various activities. The villa was in a great area, however the villa was poorly maintained and appointed. We found one one shower had proper water pressure, one toilet had to be monitored or it would "run constantly, in addition the coffee maker leaked. We felt all the furniture was overused and in poor condition.

The owner has a car that can be rented for the month and we entered a contract, however the car proved to be unreliable with the "engine light" on at all times. The owner said that we should drive it anyway, but we chose not to as we were going some distance to visit friends. The owner was not helpful.

Perfect family beach vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The villa was quite charming, my family was very impressed with my Siesta Key vacation destination choice. The villa was very close to the beach, and they had plenty of beach gear to take with you. My kids loved the beach, and the pool as did my husband and I. My 10 month old baby did great, she took many naps in the warm beach sun. I would highly recommend this villa to anyone! The location was great, the neighbors are friendly the food is good and the beach is BEAUTIFUL!!
