About the property

2 Bdrm/2 Bath Villa

Siesta Key - one of Sarasota barrier islands, known for its famous white sand beaches and gorgeous sunsets. The sand is like flour and never gets hot !! Great for all ages.

Vista Hermosa - well maintained complex, located directly on Siesta Key, near the South bridge (Stickney Point), with Crescent Beach just across the street. A short walk and your on the beach. Close to restaurants and shopping. Great location for walk ability. We have bikes you can ride to the beach, or down to the village.

When you get tired of walking/ biking around you can call Surf Sides for a FREE shuttle ride all over the island. They works on tips only. The trolley is also a free service offered on Siesta Key.

Our villa is private in the back of the complex, very quiet. All new Windows,remodeled kitchen with newer appliances, new full size washer/dryer unit in the villa. No steps, tile floors through out the whole place. Close proximity to the pool but not too close to hear the noise.

Bikes, a baby stroller, pack 'n play, beach wagon, umbrellas, beach chairs, beach toys, a big cooler and a cooler with wheels to head to the beach.

Complex has picnic areas with gas grills available for grilling along with shuffleboard courts for all to enjoy.

Any questions or inquiries, send me a message. Glad to help people enjoy Siesta Key as much as our family.

About Dianne Kemp

My husband and I live in Iowa with our teenage daughters. We fell in love with Siesta Key the first time we went there. Knowing we only have a few years left before our daughters are too busy for us. We purchased this place as a great family vacation spot.

Why Dianne Kemp chose Siesta Key

Location, Location, Location!! We love the whole tranquility of the beach and being able to walk 3.8 miles before having to turn around. We chose this villa because of the great complex, southern part of the key, and the great walkability. This is a perfect vacation spot where we knew our family would throughly enjoy and make great memories.

Thought we could share this villa with a few others wanting to have a great vacation close to the beach. Why keep a place this special all to ourselves.

Memories to be Made

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Villa Hermosa was wonderful. We visited Siesta Keys yr before while staying with friends and became enchanted with the area. From the moment we arrived we knew we were going to be comfortable. The furniture comfortable, kitchen a dream to cook in and the villa had many other amenities. There is so much to do in Siesta Key and surrounding area that one could never be bored. My husband would walk or ride one of the bikes across the road to Crescent Beach each morning and we went to the beach most nights to view the magical sunsets. I was suffering from knee bursitis making walking painful, but riding a bike less pain, so the bikes provided were great. Many times we didn’t need a car; the bicycles made transportation fun/easy. A road called Peacock Rd. runs parallel to the back row of villas of Vista Hermosa, half brick paved/ half pavement, w/beautifully lined oak trees. (Gain entry at sm white gate heading south on the Vista Hermosa circle, few yds from the villa.) It’s a private road, little traffic and when you come out to the beginning of the road you are at the marina many restaurants, PO, etc. Length is @half to three-quarter mile; @5-10 minutes on bike, @20-30 minute walk. We recommend Captain Curts and Sniki-Tiki Bar that are right next to each other, have the same famous Captain Curt’s chowder, similar food/drink menu with entertainment most nights. My fav is the Juicy Pirate drink! Another fav restaurant is Turtles Restaurant a couple miles south. They have a inexpensive but good brunch every Sunday. There is a community pool at Vista Hermosa that services the villas. We met some lovely people there. Many return each year and know each other, so the atmosphere was friendly and everyone very helpful to us newbies. Pool is heated and was so wonderful to go for quick swim or with a book for the afternoon. We recommend renting a boat from Marina Bayfront Excursions, next door to Turtles Rest. Very reasonable, especially if splitting costs with another couple. We had friends visit us and had a wonderful 4 hrs boating/swimming/picnicking on the coast @$100 each couple. OK, so that’s all of my travel insight, but the other part about this stay was communication with Dianne, the owner. She was wonderful to deal with and made sure any concerns/needs were met. Answering all texts/emails promptly, making our stay so very memorable. We would love to stay again and highly recommend Vista Hermosa! Thank you so much Dianne!

Quiet, Spacious and Convenient to Restaurants, Shops

  • 4 of 5

We loved being able to walk to restaurants, shops and even a small grocery. Nicely furnished with comfy beds.Beautiful new kitchen.The grounds around the unit are well maintained and it's a short walk to the small swimming pool. The owner was available to us when we had questions which we appreciated. There were many reasons we chose this villa but a primary one was the advertised proximity to the beach. Some reviewers said 2- 5 minutes. That is stretching it unless you're out for a cardio run. We found it more like 15 which is no big deal unless you're carrying your chairs, umbrella, beach bag and cooler. So..........maybe one of those tote carts with beach wheels is in order at this unit for beach lovers. With few exceptions, the home is well furnished and indeed, spacious and quiet.

Owner's Response: Thanks for choosing to stay at our villa. We will definitely give some consideration to the idea of the beach cart. I also found it comberson to get everything down to the beach in one trip. We would really enjoy having you in a returning stay.

Fantastic Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

Modern villa located in a quiet atmosphere. It's located within walking distance to the beach and great restaurants. A free shuttle ride is available to take you where you want to go. Villa was clean and having two bathrooms was a plus. My friends and I had a wonderful time at this location. I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to enjoy the white sand of Siesta Key Beach.
