Siesta Key House Rental Photos and Description

Beautiful 2 BR 1 BA with Private Pool

Our house is located in the northern part of the island, about an 8-minute walk to the gorgeous beach of Siesta Key and Siesta Village. In this area you find only private homes, surrounded by luscious tropical vegetation.

You will find modern appliances and everything you would expect in a well-equipped kitchen, e.g. stove, microwave, dishwasher, blender, coffee maker, garbage disposal, etc. In the utility room there is a washer and dryer. The master bedroom has a king size bed and the second bedroom has a queen size bed (both are Stearns & Foster).

The house is newly and very comfortable furnished and is well equipped with bed linens and towels. Just bring your personal items.

Attached to the front of the house is your very private, screened in pool deck.. The patio furniture includes a bar/table with 6 chairs.

The second story is totally independent of the first and is where Kevin and Laurel reside.

Just a short walk takes you to Siesta Village. The stores there will meet all your vacation needs: swimwear, sandals and gifts, food, and beverages. We have a wide range of restaurants to choose from on Siesta Key.

Very nice and clean BUT...

  • 3 of 5

This place was spotless and everything that we needed and had plenty of space. The pool was warm and clean as well. It did smell a bit like cigarettes at the beginning but the smell went away after a day. The only problem is that due to the owners living upstairs, you will not have privacy. My 80 year old grandmother was startled by one of the owners looking in through the sliding glass doors. They must have assumed there was no one there but she stayed behind most of the time due to her not feeling well. We were also celebrating my 33rd birthday on Saturday night on the July 4th holiday weekend and my sister in laws birthday and dental school graduation. In the middle of my "Happy Birthday" song the owners showed up yelling at us telling us to keep quiet because we were going to upset the neighbors. I had already told the owners that we would keep it down after 10:30 but it was still 10:20 and we were wrapping it up with the cake. So if you plan on having a family get together on a Saturday night, planning on playing music, or have adults and kids talking and laughing by the pool this is not the place to rent. Definitely rent one of the many other vacation rentals in siesta key where the owners are not living upstairs.

Owner's Response: Wow! Is all I can say to this review! The only yelling and high pitched noise was that from the renters. The more they drank the louder they got. They kept my neighbors up past 2:00 AM the night before. So yes, we are going to POLITELY ask you to keep it down as we live in a residential neighborhood. It smelled like smoke, because they smoked! We do not smoke. They told me there would be 6 people in their party, which is our max. Their was at least 15-20. I went downstairs during the day to talk to them about the noise and the parking, as I had no where to park due to the size of their party. I would NEVER rent to these people again.

Loved this place

  • 4 of 5

My husband children and I just finished coming back from spending a wonderful week in this home. It was perfect for us. There is plenty of seats. The house was very clean. The owners were so kind and generous.

It's close to the cafes/restaurants and stores. If you don't feel like driving it is a lovely walk. Close to the beach. Even though my children preferred to be in the pool. I would definitely can't wait to stay here again. Thank you Laurel and Kevin for inviting us into your home. See you next year.

Large and clean!

  • 5 of 5

This rental was amazing. There ended up being four of us staying in the apartment and it worked perfectly. There is plenty of seating for everyone, the wifi was surprisingly fast and strong, the TV had tons of channels, and pool was great. The master bedroom has the most comfortable bed while the other bedroom is more of an average bed. The washer and dryer work well and really there was no noise upstairs. We could hear the dogs every once in a while, but it wasn't anything irritating or unexpected from dogs. It's so close to the beach and to Ocean Drive, which is where all the shops and restaurants are, so we could have easily walked to either location without too much effort. My only complaint would be the bathroom since it was very small and smelled a slight bit, but it is the coast and would be expected, so I wouldn't let that hold you back from renting this property. Overall, we had such a great experience and we weren't bothered by the renters upstairs. We would most definitely rent this apartment again!

Location is perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay, the location is perfect five minutes from the beach or the village! The house was clean and is able to accomodate many guests. The owners were helpful and prompt when needed. We had a fantastic stay and look forward to one day coming back!

Relaxing Time and Lovely Place!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5 with a cocker spaniel, and stayed for the labor day weekend. the house is so spacious and comfortable that can easily accommodate more guests. The location is awesome, so quiet and relaxing, and the pool was never cold, we loved that!

The pictures are exactly as the house is, full kitchen with everything we could need to prepare our meals... that was great. Thank you laurel & Kevin for your hospitality and be always attentive to our needs.We truly had a great time and hope to go back soon.
