Guestbook comments from the manager

We enjoyed your beautiful house and its location. The only problem i had was i never knew what time it was, but if your on vacation that should be good. My husband said the only thing that was needed was a light in the back yard. The children got great use of the pool.My son had fun catching fish in the canal.

We hope to be back to Siesta Key and will definetly rent from you again. Thank you so much!

Great house in a perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our stay of six weeks. We loved that it is in the Village and walking distance to restaurants, shops and the beach. The beach cart was a definite plus. The pool was warm and we used it everyday. Kathy, the local contact was friendly and helpful with local information. Kathy even brought over some of her home made dog treats and cookies. We wanted to stay a bit longer and Jeff, the Owner was very helpful. Beth was so great with questions that we had leading up to our trip. We are already counting the days until our next stay. Loved the home and the Siesta Key area.

Just like home.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a month in 2016. The home is spacious, comfortable and clean. All the necessities are there and available. The location of this house is perfect. It is 1 block from the village and about 4 to the beach. The pool is well maintained as is the house. We lucked out with the weather and the best surprise was at the corner of the street (this house is only the 2nd house in) they had one side of the street blocked for most of the morning and we really didn't give it much thought. Wow, were we surprised when we were going for our walk and saw why it was the blocked. It was the Clydesdales and the keepers. This is where they brought the trailers and did all the harnessing and hooking them up to the carriage. This takes some time so we had the opportunity to meet the horses up close, my favorite being Rocco. Also met Clyde the dalmatian. It was a highlight for sure. The people in the village had no idea they were back there. So once they were hooked up and turned down the street you heard the cheers and cries as they took their stroll through town.

There is a nice farmers market with great produce and some other booths with painting and clothes and other items. And they had a nice spring festival with shops up and down the main street while we were there. The beaches are so nice with the quartz. Quartz does not get hot like sand does so it is always comfortable.

I like the house and the owners and caretaker are wonderful people. We will always stay at this house. We found our second home!!

Great location and home

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at this house recently and we had a great time. We could not have asked for anything better. The location of the home is incredible. Close enough to all the action but surprisingly really nice and quiet. Walking distance to everything including a local beach. We were really sad to leave and can't wait to come back next year. We will certainly try to book this house again. Thanks again for renting us your home and for letting us bring our dogs. They had a fantastic time as well!

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

I would rent this home again . The house is a decent size with lots of sitting areas and a nice sparkling pool. As others have mentioned the location is very convenient to shopping and restaurants. Also an easy walk to the beach. I was amazed how peaceful the house seemed considering how close it is to the "action". This is an older Beach style house, but clean and well maintained. Simply furnished it still had everything I needed. outside was a convenient outdoor shower and a bar b q. There is a big chest on the porch filled with sand toys and a beach trolley . . I had my 2 grandchildren ages 4 and 10 and we all walked to the beach every day. There is also a grocery store around the corner. We did take a trip to Disney one weekend, an easy 2 hr drive. Siesta key gets quite crowded during March& April but you never have to worry about parking while staying at this house. We all enjoyed our month at the beach.

Great Pool House Close to Beach and Village

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect, with plenty of room and a great pool area. The location couldn't be better. The restaurants, bars and shops were within a 2 minute walk and the beach was approximately a 5 minute walk.

Siesta Key has a great atmosphere with plenty to keep you occupied and the beach is second to none. The only time we left the area was to golf at some great courses and to get our initial groceries.

We enjoyed our selves so much we have booked Jeff and Cindy's other house on this same street for next March.
