Why Virginia Heidersberger chose Siesta Key

Gumbo Limbo 17 years of excellence: Serenity, peacefulness, comfortable sophistication, in short: paradise! Location, Locaton, Location.

Gumbo Limbo sits across the street from world famous Siesta Key Public Beach (60 steps away.) Also, our little downtown on Siesta Key (Village) is located within a short walking distance from Gumbo Limbo.

Both Gumbo Limbo duplexes offer 2 beautiful complexes with multiple apartments to choose from.

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Hideaway suite over Thanksgiving and we loved it. It was very good sized and clean. The kitchen was stocked with all the dishes/cookware you would and coffee was also provided. The courtyard area is very pretty and private. The apartment is a very short walk to the beach (pretty much right across the street) and about a 10 minute walk to Siesta Key Village. We would definitely recommend and hope to be back very soon!

  • 5 of 5

Great location!!! close to beach, and dining. Virginia (the owner) was absolutely wonderful. Constantly checked on us to make sure everything was to our satisfaction. we didn't use the pool, but there is a pool and grill if you want to BBQ and hang by the pool. We stayed in the hide-away suite (which is a one bedroom) but we definitely want to come back with our kiddos and stay in a 2 bedroom.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed in the Honeymoon and HideAway Suites at Gumbo Limbo. We wanted a 5 day stay but didn't book it until 3 weeks prior. Virginia was very friendly and accommodating and worked it out for us to split our time among 2 different suites just steps away from each other. Both suites were very clean and comfortable with plenty of space and enough kitchen supplies to allow us to cook meals. The Honeymoon Suite is on the 2nd floor with the bedroom upstairs meaning it's on the 3rd floor. There are 2 balconies overlooking the pool. The bedroom balcony has a beautiful view of the beach which was only a short walk from the property. There is a small storage shed next to the lovely pool where beach umbrellas, chairs, boogie boards, and toys are kept for your use at the pool or the beach! In addition, there is an outdoor shower to rinse off the white sand from the beach before going back into your suite. We had a rental car but the Siesta Village is within walking distance for great food, drinks, and shopping. We LOVED staying here and will come back again!

Wonderful vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

I was recommended to Gumbo-Limbo by a friend. My husband and I had never been to the Siesta Keys, FL before. We rented a place that allowed our dogs. The Hide-Away was perfect. Not a far walk to a gorgeous beach and the property was beautifully laid out, complete with a salt water pool. The only recommendation I would have is they need an additional air conditioner in the bedroom as the one in the living room did not cool the room down to our satisfaction. However, dealing with Virginia, the owner was a pleasure and she was always available to answer any questions. I would highly recommend it to a couple, family or even bachelorette get togethers.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review. We completely renovated the Hide-A-Way Suite end of June 2015. The AC unit cools down sqft 12,00.00, while this apartment is only sqft 580.00. For best results we recommend to keep the bedroom door open to guarantee a maximum airflow. We appreciate your feedback and hope to welcome you back in the near future.

Great location!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 stayed in the Honeymoon suite and even though it is a one bedroom we had plenty of room to spread out and get comfy. Our children are 7 & 8 and with the pull out sofa we had plenty of space. The view from the bedroom balcony to Siesta Key beach was a great way to wake up every morning. Kids loved the pool, and we enjoyed watching the birds enjoy the waterfall feature. A short walk to the beach, a slightly longer walk to downtown Siesta, it was THE place to stay!!! We hope to return next year.
