About Nita Ettinger, Property Manager

We love Siesta Key Beach and biking on the beach early in the morning. Siesta Key is a great place to escape the cold winters of Minnesota and get out and play a little tennis & golf. We try to come down and enjoy the home and the beach as much as we can, which is never enough.

Nita Ettinger, Property Manager purchased this house in 2011

Why Nita Ettinger, Property Manager chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

We think it is in the best spot on Siesta Key. Easy on and off the Key and the proximity to restaurants, shopping, rentals etc. make it ideal.

What makes this house unique

We have a fantastic heated saltwater pool and the of course there is the spectacular white sand beach and Gulf of Mexico, which is just a 5 minute walk from the house - you can’t beat that!

Great House In Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

This house is about a 2 block walk to Beach Access #12 (Crescent Beach). There is a very good restaurant at the end of the dead end street where the house is located and another around the corner. There is also small market at the end of the block. Everything you need (including kayak rentals, beach shops, liquor shopping, and the marina etc.) are all available within a block or so radius. There are also many free ride services available to take you to the other side of Siesta Key to the Village where there are more bars, restaurants and shops.

As to the house itself, it was awesome! It had everything we needed (toasters, blenders, cocktail shakers, pool friendly wine glasses, bottle openers, beach stuff, etc.!). The house was very clean and well equipped. The pool was also clean, warm and fabulous!!!!! We were, admittedly, a little disappointed when additional guests showed up at the adjoining apartment part way through our stay. We knew they were coming, but we really, really, really liked having everything to ourselves. With that said, we really only saw each other coming and going so it was not a big deal at all.

We were thrilled with all aspects of our rental and would absolutely not hesitate to rent again!!!

We absolutely loved our stay at the beach bungalow!! Everything was clean, the kitchen had all the essentials, the location to the beach and grocery store (short walk) was perfect, and the pool/grill was amazing for happy hour! What a wonderful vacation! Thanks for helping my family and I make memories that will last us a lifetime!

Slice of Siesta Key heaven!

  • 5 of 5

We visit the key several times a year for 15 years, Wonderful house & pool. Location and proximity to beach was perfect. We feel like the thought of everything, comfortable beds, beautiful kitchen, nice living room. Both bathrooms had walk in showers, and we love that. We will rent this home again.

Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We chose this house because it had a pool, was walking distance to the beach and allowed our small dog. We are so glad we did. The house being at the end of the street made it quiet so the dog didn't bark. The pool was beautiful and there were a few days we didn't even go to the beach, just hung out around the pool.

There are several good restaurants very nearby and the nice big kitchen is great for cooking in. The grill was brand new too. For an older house it is well maintained and comfortable. The only minor inconvenience is the wi-fi only worked in part of the house but being on vacation it was no big deal.

I would stay here again!

Attending a Wedding

  • 5 of 5

I feel so fortunate to have found this property and everything went very smoothly from booking, answering questions to check out. As others have stated it is very well located with several options for restaurants, a well stocked grocery, pharmacy, bike and kayak rental and most importantly the beach within easy walking distance. The unit we stayed in was well equipped, stocked with the basics and quiet. The pool is on the small side but perfect for cooling off. The young couple staying in the adjoining unit were lovely. I had two longtime friends join me and we attended the beach wedding of another friend we've known since school days. Everyone thought it was just right.
