What's special about this vacation apartment?

The owner is on site at least twice a year to supervise cleaning. That means you can be sure the mattress covers, sheets, comforters, pillow covers, etc. are cleaned regularly, as well as the entire rest of the apartment. If you love arriving to your vacation home and can clearly see that you won't have any cleaning to do before settling in, this is the place for you!

In addition to the cleanliness of the apartment, we have provided everything for vacation that we have in our home as far as kitchen & bathroom supplies. For those quiet days, you have a 30-video library, lots of games, and a paperback collection to choose from.

The apartment overlooks a newly resurfaced and renovated (heated) pool area in a lovely, well-maintained, quiet community.

Please note that groceries & disposable products are not provided.

So sorry, but association rules state that no trailers of any sort are permitted on the property at any time.

About Cate Chrostowski

We live in New Jersey and know first hand how great it is to find peace & sunshine on the top rated beaches of Siesta Key. You won't be disappointed if you give Siesta Key a chance, and more importantly, the apartment we've lovingly maintained for YOUR vacation!

Welcome to our home!

Cate & Jan

Cate Chrostowski purchased this condo in 2006

Why Cate Chrostowski chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

This apartment is just the right size for a vacation for our family with enough room to provide privacy for everyone. Keep an eye on the kids in the pool right from the lanai or walk across the street to the beach. Laundry room shared with rarely more than 1 or 2 other apartments at a time and this apartment is nearest the laundry room - right across the hall!

What makes this condo unique

The complex is located right around the corner from the south bridge making access on and off the island so easy!

Wonderful condo!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four who loved staying at this condo! It is very comfortable and homey. Cate has been wonderful to work with and everything worked seamlessly as far as the logistics go in checking in, out, etc. We loved being a short walk away to the beach. This is at the quieter and less populated area of the Key, which suited us very well. Vista Hermosa has many residents rather than renters so the place is very quiet and we loved that since we are very laid back on vacation. We enjoyed being able to walk to restaurants and stores which are located very close by. Overall, we highly recommend Cate and her lovely condo. It's a wonderful value on top of all of the other great features!

Quiet comforts and beautiful views and location

  • 5 of 5

We just arrived home from a week's stay at Vista Hermosa. Everything is as described and seen in the photos. It was a wonderful stay that we will plan on re-booking in the future. There were no problems whatsoever and a very short walk to the peerless white sands of Crescent Beach. Highly recommended for small families like mine looking to get away for a while. Lovely place.

Everything was wonderful!!!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much !!! Crescent Beach is walking distance and there is a free trolley that runs from 8am to 12am to the Siesta Key Beach Pavilion and Siesta Key Village so we didn't have to worry about parking. The condo is very comfortable and convenient to shops and restaurants. We enjoyed riding our bikes all over the island. Cate was very responsive to any of our questions and we would rent again. Enjoy your stay at Vista Hermosa!!!!

Wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our one week stay at Cate's apartment. She is very prompt with answering questions. We went with our 4 month old son, and enjoyed the convenience of having our own little home for a week, which included a kitchen and living area. We went back and forth to the beach, which was so convenient even with a little baby. The only downside was that there was construction in the next door condo, which made a lot of noise during the day. Other than that, I would recommend this place. It's a great place to stay for a very reasonable price! Also, the beach is beautiful with the best sand we have ever seen!... and we have been to three different places in Mexico, Hawaii, Bahamas, and Dominican Republic.

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here very nice and quiet. We had everything we needed and we loved the beach decor. We ended up driving to the beach because we walked the first day and when we arrived the beach was marked off and reserved for the resort that was directly on the breach and the people were not nice at all. Of course that is no fault of the owners I was shocked that the city allows this. The drive was fine not far at all and plenty of parking. The pool was very nice and a family atmosphere which we loved. We would definetly come back.

Excellent Location for a Beach Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Cate's condo was magnificent. The location in Building B was perfect with the view of the pool letting lots of light in to the unit. The condo was very clean and organized, and included everything one needs for a home-like feel stay at the beach. We enjoyed the short walk to Beach Access 12 (while everyone else was fighting over parking spots and maneuvering U-turns while trying to exit). We walked to the Toasted Mango (delicious!), Captain Curt's village (file fish and corn fritters and Crabby Red!), Anna's Deli (every day!) and the local grocery store to stock up. We had breakfast in the condo most days, lunch usually at Anna's Deli, and dinner was a combination of cooking in and eating out (Captain Curt's, Turtle's, the Pier Grill on Anna Marie island, and others). We baked cookies for afternoon snack and enjoyed watching movies and the RNC. The condo is stocked with many child-friendly movies, board games, decks of cards, and beach chairs and inflatables. The location of the condo is ideal as it is right across from the laundry room, which helps immensely when preparing to depart. Access to the condo key was seamless . . . everything is very well thought-out. The pool was enjoyable and the clubhouse personnel were very helpful (they helped us print out some information we needed). I especially enjoyed the King sized bed in the Master Bedroom and the spacious closet. Thank you Cate for the wonderful experience. We expect to return!
