Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed ten fabulous days At the Beach. The location was ideal; we especially enjoyed the close proximity to the beach. Jim went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed for an amazing vacation. We will definitely be returning!

Close to the beach and clean.

  • 3 of 5

It was advertised and priced as a two bedroom that sleeps four. I would consider this a one bedroom as the other bed is behind the front door and next to the dining table. In order to use the living room one has to pass through the other bedroom or walk outside. Also we stayed 6 nights (billed for 7) and it was rented the next week for 8 nights. They were paid twice for Friday. No reduced charge for our shorter week. Towels and bedding is old and worn. Kitchen is very small and almost unusable. No stove, no counter space, odd appliances although nice large refrigerator. I would stay here again but it's pricey for two people. Patio is nice (but again off the one bedroom),bathrooms adequate, good laundry on site. Very close to the beach....probably the best part about it!!

Owner's Response: We are disappointed that this unit did not live up to our guest expectations as a three star review is considered by us as a failure. Our guest were very nice people and left the unit beautifully. This is our most rented unit. It is also our least expensive and priced far below our competitors pricing. Our pricing system is designed to charge the lowest possible rate. So if the daily rate for 6 days is more than the weekly rate the guest gets the lower weekly rate. Unfortunately our guest did not look at the daily rate versus the weekly rate or they would have been aware of this. We try to explain this in detail in our initial note supplied with our rate quote. Our pictures and descriptions are totally accurate and current. Our kitchen is small and it is listed as a convenience kitchen in our ad. It has a two burner stove but no built in oven. The appliances also include a microwave, a convection oven plus toaster, coffee maker and ceramic lined cookware. In addition, we have very nice tableware and cooking utensils. There is also a gas Weber BBQ grill just for this unit. The beds are TempurPedic memory foam mattresses. We have one queen bed, and a twin day bed also with TempurPedic memory foam mattress and a pull out trundle with a TempurPedic memory foam mattress as well. Our sheets and towels are bamboo. Bamboo sheets and towels are much more expensive than cotton because they are antimicrobial and the sheets regulate the body temperature for maximum comfort. It is unique in a smaller unit to have two bathrooms, but our guests seem to appreciate this convenience. In addition, there is no one next to you or above you so you have great privacy and yet you are just a 53 second walk from the beach.

Cozy and clean.

  • 4 of 5

Had an enjoyable time "At the Beach" in Siesta Key. Although Unit 4 was a bit tight with an unusual layout, it was very clean, had all of the amenities that we needed, and was quite literally "at the beach".

Wonderful, Cozy, and Close to the beach!

  • 4 of 5

Jim was wonderful explaining everything in detail. He recommended some great places to eat, fun activities, and outings in the area. Our place was comfortable and clean. Our beds were comfortable and we slept good. We were very close to the beach. There were no unpleasant surprises! It was just as advertised. Thanks again Jim for making our stay such a wonderful time.

Owner's Response: We strive to deliver a wonderful experience for our guests vacation stay. These guests took advantage of our suggestions to enhance and give quality to their vacation. When we suggested they go on a sunset cruise they not only enjoyed it but got to see, a once in a lifetime, Flash of Green just as the sun dips below the horizon and it only lasts 1 or 2 seconds but can be phenomenal. There's was and they will never for get it. Those are some of the memories we like to help guests add to their personal memory bank. I wan to thank the guests for taking the time to review our property.

We were well informed but a good thing we did not plan on cooking

  • 4 of 5

The manager, Jim, informed us of everything we could possibly fit in given we were there only one week. Our quarters were very tight but livible, as long as cooking was not a big part of our stay. Fortunately we had planned on eating out most meals with family and friends. Again, Jim was a huge help with recommendations for some great places to eat. He made sure that anything which was not working, was. We had a wonderful week and such easy access to the beach.

Owner's Response: These guests were a delight and we hope they choose to come back. Our kitchen is compact but it does have a full sized refrigerator, microwave, convection oven, two burner stove, sink with disposer but, no automatic dishwasher. We believe the kitchen is complete with a coffee maker, tea kettle, blender and even a food processor and ceramic lined cookware. We even provide a Weber Gas Grill for each individual unit to grill out on and of course we supply the gas. We also show this compact convenience kitchen in our pictures so our guest know exactly what they are getting when they stay in this unit. We do have larger units with full sized kitchens as well for those planning to eat in a great deal of their stay.

A wonderful retreat from the real world.

  • 5 of 5

This place was quiet and just as promised, 50 seconds to the best sugar sand beach on the Gulf! We spent time every day walking the beach and watching the glorious sunsets!

It was a great location for heading out to golf, St. Armand's circle for shopping, the Ringling Museum, farmer's market on Marco Island and every known fish dock to eat fresh fish. We tried the key lime pie everywhere and could not declare a winner, they were all good.

Sarasota is the leading cultural center of Florida, its rich arts scene rivals some of the biggest urban centers in the country. With dozens of performing arts venues, renowned opera, theatre and ballet companies, numerous art museums, a thriving visual arts community and art festivals that draw visitors from across the globe, it's easy to understand why people come to Sarasota for art vacations instead of beach getaways. Thankfully, the two are not mutually exclusive.

The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art. Housed on the site of the circus magnate's former estate on the shore of Sarasota Bay, the museum hosts one of the largest collections of Rubens canvasses in the world, along with many other works by Old Masters. But that's only the beginning of the Ringling legacy. You can also tour Ca d'Zan Mansion, a magnificent 56-room Venetian Gothic palace that served as the Ringling's residence also see the restored

Historic Asolo Theater -- built in Italy in the late 1800s,
