Why Donna Grimmer chose Siesta Key

House of the Sun is an extremely well run and maintained property. And we have all of the conveniences of shopping right across the street. We do not have to deal with the slow moving traffic on the key as we are just off of the south bridge (Stickney Point). Having a condo on the 2nd floor is a wonderful convenience, even with the 2 elevators, we can just walk up one flight of stairs to our condo. We love our place at House of the Sun!

What makes this Condo unique

Dave and I have been coming to Siesta Key for over 15 years and we love it. We decided to purchase our condo at House of the Sun for so many reasons. First, we really like the location. The complex is on the gulf and one block away from the Stickney Point Bridge. During the busier times of the year, it is wonderful to be able to leave our building, cross the bridge and get to our destination without long, slow lines. We enjoy the large, heated pool the overlooks the gulf, and we love the decks on the fourth and fifth floors. Every evening, guests of House of the Sun love to come up to the 4th and 5th floor decks for sunset. A horn is typically blown from our 5th floor deck just as the sun is disappearing into the Gulf. The deck provides a panoramic view of Siesta Key Beach, and we are one of the very view complexes that have these wonderful decks right on the beach. We love the convenience of being able to walk across the street for groceries at the Crescent Market, cocktails at the Sniki Tiki and dinner at Claytons. Typically, my car stays under the building in my covered parking space for most of my time at House of the Sun. Everything that I need is right across the street, from rentals, to shops, to a variety of eateries, liquor stores, ice cream, pizza, pharmacy, rentals, and the list goes on and on...I simply cannot say enough about the location and amenities here at House of the Sun!

                                                                This was our first time in Siesta Key and it won’t be our last. Donna’s condo was everything we had hoped for and more. It was beautifully decorated, SPOTLESS and very well stocked and organized. Donna herself was very pleasant and very accessible if needed. I would highly recommend Siesta Key and staying at Donna’s condo.

                                                                Dear Jennifer, It was great to have been able to meet you and your husband. We are on the key every winter and like to be able to be hands on at all of our condos here on Siesta Key. I can check the place after every clean and restock it with items that most rentals don't have. I hope to have you back again in the future. Remember, if you are thinking about next winter, you can reserve now as all weeks in the winter have a tendency to be reserved about a year in advance. Give it some thought while you are up there in Binghamton, NY...I hear it is 30 degrees and snowing right now. Stay warm! Donna

                                                                Great place !

You were an awesome guest and will always be welcome back to any of the four condos that I have on Siesta Key. You may want to follow my Siesta Key Facebook Page as I post great last minute deals throughout the year. Save Travels home. I hear it is pretty cold up there in Indiana right now.

                                                                Wonderful beach retreat!

                                                                Nicole J.

                                                                Our family of 4 (with 2 kids ages 5 & 2) stayed the week. Extremely pleased with everything. From the unit itself, which was super clean, the great location in town to the responsiveness of the owners - everything was great. And you can't beat that it's right on the beach! Appliances are getting a bit outdated, but worked for our needs. Right across the street are bars/restaurants, convenience store, ice cream shop and place to rent bikes for cheap. The condo building itself has tennis courts, ping pong, an arcade room (with free games & air hockey), 2 working gas grills and a perfectly heated pool. Walk right out onto the private beach and enjoy a stroll or relax in the sun. Can't wait to go back!

                                                                Perfection

                                                                Wendy L.Raleigh, NC

                                                                We thoroughly enjoyed our stay & will be returning! The condo is spotless and well-appointed. Owner communication is the top-notch. We weren't concerned with being within walking distance to The Village area, so this was the perfect location for us. Loved the beach access & nearby bars/restaurants.

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                Hi Wendy, Thank you for the wonderful review! Having purchased this one just last October, it was important to be able to get feedback and do whatever we can to make it as top notch as our other 3 places that we have here on Siesta Key.

                                                                It was great to have been able to meet up with you while you were here and I look forward to having you back in the future. Hopefully we will meet again. Have a wonderful 2018!

                                                                Loved the privacy of the beach! Location walking distance to a bunch of stuff

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                Hi Kevin, I'm pleased to hear that your pre-holiday get-away was a good one and that you enjoyed my condo at House of the Sun. I love the complex and the location and that is the reason why I purchased two units at this complex. I hope that you will keep me in mind for a return trip and that you will let your friends and family know that they can reach out to me through my Facebook Page, my email, or phone anytime. Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a healthy and prosperous 2018! Donna G

                                                                STAY AWAY FROM HERE!

                                                                Linda C.1/2 time Sarasota; 1/2 time New Jersey

                                                                Don't stay here! I had a very unpleasant experience in the end, ruining an expensive 3 day weekend. The owner uses a young, totally unprofessional cleaning person (who told me she was the owner's niece), and who yelled "get out - your time is up" when she arrived precisely at 10 am on the final day. So we did. Then I received a text message from the owner an hour later complaining I hadn't stripped the beds! And in the end, the owner retained some of my security deposit claiming I hadn't complied with her cleaning instructions. So consider yourself forewarned! There are many great places to stay in Siesta Beach and Sarasota. This is definitely not one of them.

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                I have an agreed departure time of 10:00 in order to get the condo ready for the next guest due to arrive the same day. This is standard departure time for the entire complex of House of the Sun as well as most other properties on the Key. My cleaning lady, who is a mature adult owner operator of her own business for over 15 years, arrived at 10:45 and you had not started to get ready to leave the condo, had not performed any of the departure procedures that are clearly written in my rental agreement and posted on the refrigerator, and you told her that you would leave when you were ready which was well past 11:00 AM. My cleaning lady does not yell or confront guests, but she has a job to do and does it very well as many of my reviews will attest to. I have several condos on the Key and receive many compliments about my units and their very clean condition. Cleanliness is key to a happy stay and these cleaners have an excellent track record. I want to make one thing very clear. I NEVER deducted any part of the security deposit for failure to follow check out procedures OR for late departure. I could have as you left the place trashed with garbage, left all lights on, all fans running, left the door to my condo wide open, and left the security door to the complex of House of the Sun propped open for anyone to walk in. You treated my home and the people who maintain it with with disrespect and you were never docked for any of it when you received your security deposit. With that said, you are not a welcome guest at any of my properties again.

FEES FROM VRBO: VRBO adds on a SERVICE FEE, usually somewhere between 6 to 11%, depending on the amount of the rental. You can view a breakdown of all charges on line and before you book. Press GET AN INSTANT QUOTE, then click VIEW DETAILS on that quote. If you have questions with regard to the charges, send an email to the owner. CREDIT CARD PROCESSING FEES: Credit cards have fees that range anywhere from 3-5% & will be the responsibility credit card holder. The credit card processing fees are separate from VRBO's 'service fee' and can easily be avoided by using E-check payment through VRBO. All credit card fees are deducted off of the security deposit before the deposit is refunded back to the credit card. You have options other than by using a credit card and if you are trying to save money, make payments with an alternate method other than by using a credit card. The choice is yours. E-CHECK PAYMENTS THROUGH VRBO are FEE-FREE. This option is available for any VRBO reservation AND IS THE PREFERRED PAYMENT METHOD AS IT WILL SAVE THE TRAVELER ON CREDIT CARD FEES. PERSONAL CHECKS: I can accept personal checks as long as payment in full is received at least 30 days in advance of the reservation. REQUEST A RENTAL AGREEMENT BEFORE YOU BOOK. A PERSONALIZED, COMPLETED AND SIGNED RENTAL AGREEMENT IS REQUIRED FOR ALL RESERVATIONS. BY REQUESTING A RENTAL AGREEMENT BEFORE YOU BOOK, WILL GIVE YOU COMPLETE INFORMATION WITH REGARD TO THE RESERVATION. IF YOU HAVE NOT REQUESTED A RENTAL AGREEMENT AND YOU ARE ACCEPTED BY RESERVATION REQUEST, YOU WILL BE EMAILED YOUR PERSONALIZED RENTAL AGREEMENT THAT YOU WILL BE REQUIRED TO COMPLETE AND RETURN WITHIN 48 OF THE ACCEPTANCE OF THE RESERVATION REQUEST. I hope you will consider any of my condos on Siesta Key when you make your decision to book.
