About Siesta Key Beach;

Siesta Key Beach is Sarasota's gateway to the sparkling waters of the Gulf of Mexico, an island that combines luxurious amenities with a relaxed vibe that appeals to both visitors and locals.

On the east side of this eight-mile long barrier island is Sarasota Bay and Florida's intra-coastal waterway. It's a scenic trail for boaters interested in exploring the mangrove forests that dot the area, dropping a line for snook or pompano, or cruising to Sarasota's dockside restaurants and pubs. On the island's west side are Siesta Key's glorious white sand beaches -- ranked number one in America in 2011 & 2016 by Dr. Beach -- and the calm waters of the Gulf. Take an early morning walk while dipping your toes in the surf; build sand castles, search for shells and soak up the warm sunshine in the afternoon; then find a comfortable spot in to view the postcard-perfect moment when the sun dips below the horizon and paints the sky in strokes of red and orange.

Down at the south end of Siesta Key you'll find more restaurants, shops and public beaches, as well as marina, fishing charters, and boat rental facilities. Within minutes, you can putter in a pontoon boat or slice through waves in a high-powered jet ski. Try parasailing for more high-flying adventure, where you'll experience a unique view of Siesta Key while suspended from a parachute over 100 feet in the air. Or exercise more than just your sense of wonder by renting a bike or a kayak to explore the island on your own.

Down at Siesta Beach, the aqua blue water comes gently from the Gulf. Unlike the rough mechanical waters of the Atlantic or Pacific, it comes to the shore licking the sand with a perpetual caress.

Visitors and locals alike, slowly stride the beach mornings, throughout the sun drenched days, and into the post sunset hour. Here they stand, mesmerized by the sky curving down to the invisible seam where the sun slowly recedes into the next day.

Standing there, as this day slips into the horizon, many take pictures, but most emblazon the spectacle into their memory, ever cognizant that this special event is one of the most relaxing times of their lives, they will surely recall who they were with.

Come join us for a truly tropical experience right here in Sarasota at Siesta Key, the enchanted island.

There's more to Siesta Key than just beaches and water. This island is a destination for all who stay or live in the Sarasota area thanks to the wide variety of entertainment and dining options that stretch its length. On the north end, a short walk from one of Siesta's large expanses of public beach, lies Siesta Key Village. In the village's quaint few blocks you'll find dozens of shops that cater to the island lifestyle, offering necessities like groceries and hardware alongside souvenirs and bathing suits. Siesta Key Village restaurants -- most with large, open-air dining -- range from pancake and egg joints to award-winning fine dining spots. No matter how fancy, though, dress codes are always casual: Sandals are not only allowed, they're expected.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I hope everything was in its proper place. We didn't have any problems with anything and truly enjoyed the location of your home. Other than a couple of the nights being a little cooler than expected all in all it was a great vacation. Thanks again and hope to get down there again in the coming year. We just got hit with 8 inches of snow today and the temperatures in the teens. Maybe I should have booked Christmas too! We just received our $500 security deposit in the mail.

Best Winter Vacation EVER!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Siesta Key and my husband and I are hooked! We reserved the ‘Siesta Beach Hideaway’ based on the reviews and we could not have been more pleased. Our parents and brother joined us on the third week. Plenty of room & privacy when you want it.It is the PERFECT location for walking to the beach and to the Village! We enjoyed relaxing on the breezy rooftop deck in the morning with our coffee before heading to the beach for a walk or run. The house was clean and had everything we needed. We enjoyed spending time at the beach as well as some day trips. The house also has high speed internet which is a must if you need to get some work done. With such a great property, it was very enjoyable to stay in and not have to go out all the time as happens in less nicer rentals!

We enjoyed Myakka State Park and Anna Maria Island. We also loved going to Casey Key. Our favorite place to eat was Casey Key Fish House. The Hub in the Village was another favorite! We plan to visit again and hopefully bring our children and grandchildren! We would highly recommend Siesta Beach Hideaway as a place to stay in Siesta Key! In general terms, we had a great vacation and would return to this same property anytime. I strongly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a great vacation! The thing that places the Siesta Beach Hideaway apart from the others is it's location…one block walk to a spectacular white sandy beach. In the other direction is a nice handholding walk to the village for quality time at the Daiquiri Deck. Third direction leads to a nice wandering walk through some really nice/rich/quiet neighborhoods. Eva & Harold

Second Trip Back next year to follow

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the Siesta Beach Hideaway with my fiancé in 2014 right after we got engaged. Celebrating there for 2 weeks with my parents and hers, we fell in love with Sarasota and especially Siesta Key. The house has all the makings of a relaxing, quiet, and accessible vacation spot. The beach is only a short walk and the white sand beach is breathtaking. We were so happy Bob told us about Sunday evening ‘Drum circle’ at the beach. It was a last & we all got up and danced to the drums. (after a few beers). We returned in 2015 with friends and other relatives. They remodeled the bathrooms, and they are great. Just left last week and decided to book our wedding on the beach next Summer. The minister gave us the name of a planner that takes care of everything and we are so excited to get back here. If you are thinking about renting this property, stop thinking and just book. Gustave

Aspects to consider

  • 1 of 5

The person that is thinking on rent this property should know that : The owners live in the property in the garage! Therefore this is sub lease and NOT a vacation property and this MUST be stated on the rent agreement. On top of that , this a dirty and low maintenance house. There were cockroachs everywhere . The shower has a one inch mark all around demonstrating permanent clogging problems. Also , this property has a last century tv set in the living room. . My family and friends decided staying because we were like 16 persons in total , and it would was hard to find a property for all together.

Owner's Response: We have been renting this property to vacation renters from across the US & 5 foreign countries for the past 7 years.Our reviews are outstanding as anyone can see and we keep this property in excellent condition. First of all there is no garage, and their claim about a sub lease is a complete fabrication. This group from Miami had more than 20 people coming and going in clear violation of the lease. We had call from our neighbors for the first three nights they were there and threatened to call the police for loud music and carrying on in a boisterous and vile manner. We were out of town and offered to have them leave immediately with a FULL refund. They refused and we had little choice under the circumstances. We use a commercial cleaner and the exterminator is there every 90 days. The bathrooms and kitchen are being remodeled this week and so is the damage they did to the property for spite in response to our complaints. This is the first time in 7 years we had to use a security deposit for damages and to give 3 neighbors dinner gift certificates for their trouble. Upon leaving, they threw trash and drove across the neighbors lawns. These were obviously low class people who do not even speak correct or intelligent English. Here is a copy of our certified letter to them; M & A, This letter is to confirm your violation of the lease you both signed dated April 9,2015. You indicated that there would be 6 adults & 2 children. There were far more than those occupants. Item #3 required that “you and your guests will respect the decorum expected by the neighbors. (Re; Late evening outdoor entertaining). We were called by several neighbors to complain about your guests playing excessive loud music, making noise, and jumping off the first floor rear porch into the pool. When confronting you in person, they were told “if they did not like it, to call 911”. This outrageous behavior and the damages done has led to a forfeit of your security.

Siesta Key Made our Winter

  • 5 of 5

Siesta Beach hideaway was just what we expected from the testimonials read on website. We always stay in a VRBO location from past experience. The property has all the room for everyone to find a comfortable space. Whether the pool, rooftop deck, or kitchen & LR, there is ample room to gather together or read a book / ipad. We are beach people and spent most days in the sun and in the Gulf swimming. The parasail was great for the kids & we rented bikes for 4 days to explore Siesta Key. The South end of the island had Kayak rentals and we took a mangrove tour which reminded us of the time in Aruba. We had relatives stay for 4 days and never felt cramped. The owners made the reservation process flawless &highly recommend this property

Owner's Response: It is always great having people come from up North in Winter. They so much appreciate the great weather and abundant activities available In Sarasota. We have the pool heater going all winter and it is amusing to see their faces coming home from the beach to a heated pool.

Siesta Key is like the Carribean in Florida

  • 5 of 5

It was amazing to be walking the beach on New Years day when Lansing MI had 15 inches of snow on the ground. The place was great for our family of 10. My in-laws, brother & sister and all the kids were very surprised how much room there was. The rooftop deck was dinner time almost every night. Walking to the beach was only 5 minutes and we had no problem letting the kids walk with a teenager accompanying them. Relaxing by the heated pool was fantastic with many floats and toys provided by the owner. The village was also a short walk with great restaurants galore. The guys took a fishing charter by Marina Jack for a day. We caught our dinner that day and the captain cleaned and fileted the catch for us. There were museums and art galleries in downtown Sarasota and the trip was great. We will be back.

Great location, excellent for two couples and 2 kids.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here in November. The house was as advertised, close to the beach (3 minute walk), well appointed with all that two grandparents, Mom and Dad and two children could need. Lots of sleeping arrangements and the beds were comfortable. The drive in to the village took 5 minutes tops and the walk was an easy 20 minutes with a stroller. Owners were available as needed but certainly not obtrusive. Pool was nice when we decided not to go to the beach. There were beach toys for the kids which was nice. Really enjoyed sitting on the roof in the evenings having a barbecue.

Also the restaurants in Siesta Key are really good!

I would certainly recommend this property.

Notes:
There's more to Siesta Key than just beaches and water. This island is a destination for all who stay or live in the Sarasota area thanks to the wide variety of entertainment and dining options that stretch its length. On the north end, a short walk from one of Siesta's large expanses of public beach, lies Siesta Key Village. In the village's quaint few blocks you'll find dozens of shops that cater to the island lifestyle, offering necessities like groceries and hardware alongside souvenirs and bathing suits. Siesta Key Village restaurants -- most with large, open-air dining -- range from pancake and egg joints to award-winning fine dining spots.
