Overview

Siesta Key Villa Rental Photos and Description

Townhome, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

As you enter the Shells Villa for the first time you know you are not in a typical vacation home. From the Spanish tile to the beautiful rugs and antique furnishings, you truly feel like a special guest.

Leave your car behind, sheltered in your private two plus car garage. Walk out the door and down the private footpath. In seconds you are on one of the most beautiful white powder sand beaches in the world. No streets to cross, no driving, and no looking for a parking place.

Walk half a block to restaurants and shopping at the Village on Siesta Key. Enjoy over 2000 square feet of gracious living in Spanish Mediterranean style villa.

What makes us different than other homes you may be considering:

• The Beach - The home is located on the ocean side of Beach Rd., so you just walk out your door and through our private access path. It’s literally 230 feet to Siesta Key Beach. No busy roads to cross and no need to find parking.

• Seconds to Siesta Key Village – The home is located right next to Siesta Key Village. You are a one block walk away from restaurants, bars, boutiques, and ice cream shops.

• Large Home – The home has just over 2,000 square feet on the top two levels and includes 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, lanai, and in-unit laundry. We also have a 1,000 square foot ground level that has the main entrance foyer and 2.5 car garage. It comfortably sleeps 8-10 people.

• Privacy & Security – The home is part of a development of four homes. It has its own gated driveway, garage, and entrance. This is not a high rise or large vacation rental development. When you stay at The Shells Villa you feel like you are in a home, not an apartment or hotel room.

• Amenities & Décor – The villa is elegantly appointed to make you feel at home. It has luxury finishes such as three flat screen TVs, surround sound audio, beautiful art work, fireplace, oriental rugs, and comfortable furniture. Free cable, Internet (wireless or wired), phone, beach toys/chairs, and gas grill are also included.

• Peace of Mind – Don’t leave anything to chance. The Shells Villa is locally managed and the office is located within walking distance of the home, so if you run into any issues you know we will be there to help.

About ShellsVilla.com

We started coming to Siesta Key in 2006 and we fell in love with the area. It's a family friendly area with something to do for everyone.

Owners: Julie & Orazio

ShellsVilla.com purchased this villa in 2008

Why ShellsVilla.com chose Siesta Key

We have young children and we like the convenience of staying right on the beach so that we don't have to cross any roads or worry about parking our car. In addition, we love having Siesta Village just down the street. We regularly frequent the restaurants, bars, and shops located in the village.

What makes this villa unique

Walk to everywhere! Stay right on the beach. If you want more info on our home we've created a website with more pictures and information at ShellsVilla . com

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your property was very nice. We have stayed at VRBO places a number of times before and yours was by far the nicest. The decor was beautiful and also very comfortable. I'm usually quite picky, and found your place to be without any problems!

Awesome Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time at Shells Villa on Siesta Key. The beach is so beautiful. The white sand is never hot under your feet. It's just a short walk to the village for shops, restaurants and night entertainment. The drum circle on the public beach on Sunday Night was so much fun. The Villa itself was very clean and well maintained. The owner, Orazio is so nice and helpful.

vacation on Siesta Key

  • 4 of 5

We rented Shell's villa for a girls vacation on Siesta Key and couldn't have been more pleased. The location was perfect...walking distance to the beach and the village for shopping and eating. The house was clean and had everything we needed including beach chairs, umbrella, cooler & wagon. We have already recommended this property to friends and would definitely rent it again ourselves.

Shells Villa on Siesta Key Has It All!

  • 5 of 5

My sister, our husbands and I recently shared a week at Shells Villa on Siesta Key. We were returning guests having enjoyed the property in Spring 2015. We found the villa even more enjoyable this year. Part of our enjoyment was because my sister is MUCH healthier and more mobile this year. Last year I pushed her to the beach and up and down the beach in a "fat tired wheel chair". The location was perfect...she got the beach time and I trained for a trek in Nepal. The elevator in the villa was necessary for her to get from floor to floor. This year, we walked to the beach and on the beach together and the elevator was perfect for getting groceries to the kitchen! Our joy in her improved health knows no bounds! We also have always enjoyed being close enough to the Village to dine at the great restaurants...but far enough away to enjoy peaceful evenings on the lovely outdoor porch with table and chairs. We are active "seniors" who appreciate young families and singles and have found the perfect place to stay on Siesta Key.

The kitchen is nicely stocked for cooking and dining and the beds are VERY comfortable. We usually have an overnight guest or two and the "bunk bed room" is just as comfortable as the Master and Queen bedrooms. Our host has been very congenial and the property management service very responsive. We have already reserved for Spring 2017 and hope our 3rd sister and her husband will be able to join us for our even longer stay. Clearly, Shells Villa is our favorite place to stay...we have been vacationing on Siesta Key for over 20 years.

The Shells Villa

  • 5 of 5

The week that we spent at The Shells Villa in Siesta Key was wonderful. I cannot stress enough how wonderful its location is. We found that we did not use our car all week. It is steps away from the most beautiful beach, which we found much less congested than the beach just a few blocks away. It is a very short walk to "The Village" where we found a grocery store, excellent restaurants, and nice shops. The Shells Villa is very nicely decorated with all the comforts of home. The kitchen is well stocked with utensils, extra towels (both bath and beach) are provided, a lot of beach gear (chairs, umbrella, children toys). The house was very clean and the owners were wonderful to work with. Any questions were quickly answered and an informational packet on the house and area was provided.

I spent five nights at Shells Villa with my family and it was everything we expected. The villa is very comfortable and conveniently located near the village and beach. We look forward to going again.
