About Kelly

Hi...we are Kelly and Rick Oaks. We live in eastern panhandle of West Virgina, but we LOVE Siesta Key Florida!!!!! We plan to retire to Florida someday, but in the meantime we will visit this beautiful piece of paradise. We have 2 wonderful boys, ages 18 and 20 who love Siesta Key beach also. Rick owns and operates his own cleaning/ fire/water restoration business and Kelly is a stay-at-home Mom.

Kelly purchased this villa in 2010

Why Kelly chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

We love the location of Vista Hermosa with its easy access to the beach and easy on and off access to Siesta Key. We have restaurants bars a drug store and local grocery store all within walking distance. Less traffic and congestion at the south end of the key. You can park your car and use the multiple Siesta Key free ride services. Tips Only!

What makes this villa unique

Kelly loves to get up in the morning and have her coffee on the lanai, then heads to the beach for her morning walk. Rick and the boys love the bike rides. Staying in the villa has all the same amenities we have at home, which makes visiting very enjoyable. The new washer and dryer is a God send, especially with beach towels and any extended stays.

Wonderful Home Away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

It was wonderful to call this villa "Home" for our family vacation. Rick and Kelly have everything decorated and well stocked with all the necessary amenities and many more (beach toys, family games, etc.). It was very nice to have a washer and dryer as well as all the kitchen & bath items they provided. The pool was very nice and a quick walk from the villa. Also, it is great to be a short walk from Crescent beach and a quick drive to the main Siesta Beach area. The beach is definitely the best in the USA and we loved being so close to it. Also, there are many good restaurants and ice cream places within walking distance. Lastly, we had a parking spot under a carport and found the entire complex to be very safe, other residents and guests were friendly and the check-in procedures were very simple. Thank you Rick and Kelly...we would love to come back again!

Beautiful beach house!!!

  • 5 of 5

The property is amazing and it has everything you may need; from a very equipped kitchen to bikes and beach toys. It is very clean, so well decorated and very comfortable. The owners were so helpful and my experience was wonderful. Sarasota is more than beautiful and Kelly's Villa was everything we needed. I would definitely go back for another relaxing vacation.

Month of January 2016 at Vista Hermosa Villa

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed Kelly's cozy, clean, well equipped villa. Everything we needed was provided, There were: plenty of towels & blankets, internet, nice TVs, dishwasher, washer and dryer in unit and the kitchen was fully equipped to include all the basics and many extras like a blender, spices, Kuerig coffee maker, and even things like a coffee grinder and waffle maker. The king bed master bed was very comfy and having the guest bedroom be big enough to hold both a full bed and a queen bed is nice. Kelly was very responsive when we contacted her and she had a handyman come to resolve the issue. I was pleasantly surprised to experience such a quiet environment. The villa is a ground level building where walls are shared with a few other villas but we never heard noise from any other residence. Parking spot under roof was convenient and there is guest parking nearby. Cannot speak to the community pool - we saw it empty but never had a single day in the entire month of January that was what we consider bathing suit weather. Kelly has a cart with beach toys and chairs ready to roll out the lanai door, but we never touched that cart due to how cold it was during our month stay. Did enjoy walking on three Key beaches in our jackets. Crescent Beach is under a 10 minute walk from villa and free parking is easily found at Turtle Beach and Siesta Beach. We did lots of sightseeing into Sarasota, including the Ringling Museum and Ringling mansion, Jungle Gardens, MORC Aquarium and Myakka State Park to see alligators from the shore and from the park boat, Also traveled into Fort Meyers to see Edison and Ford winter compound, Manatee Park in Lee County, and into Ding Darling Nature Preserve on Sanibel Island. We even took a two hour drive down to tour Naples and Marco Island. Son enjoyed a fishing charter boat trip as well as golfing (both in his winter coat) and daughter enjoyed going in rented kayak to see nearby nature preserve near Turtle Beach (Kayak rental was just around corner and they made it very easy for her to adventure). Lots of restaurants and shopping available on Key as well as in Sarasota. Can get most anything you need quickly at the Davidson Drug store or 7 Eleven since both are just a short walk away. Other than the January weather being very cold and rainy, we enjoyed our stay.

Excellent vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

We took the week to unwind and refresh. Villa was just like being at home (clean, decorated very well, comfortable, everything you needed was there) with the benefits of the gulf waters being just 10 minutes away. truly enjoyed and refreshed!!

Would definitely keep this on our list...
