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!

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.

Excellent location and pet friendly!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from 8 nights in the 2 bedroom unit - we had myself, my fiance', a friend, and my son. Perfect for the four of us! I have spent a lot of time in Siesta Key over the years and this was one of the best places to stay. Location is only a block walk to the beach and there are two good restaurants at the end of the street.

The cost was less than our previous stay on Turtle Beach and we had the whole house and pool to ourselves. I was able to bring my two small dogs, which is great because it is very difficult to find pet friendly places on Siesta Key. The pool was awesome, and the kitchen was my favorite. Very easy and comfortable to cook in and stocked with everything. Really, it was the most well-stocked place we have rented.

Everything was arranged over email and there was no check-in, just coded locks. Very nice as we traveled from Michigan via car.

I would definately go back and possibly even rent the 1 bedroom unit if it were just myself or myself & another.

Family Vacation 2016

  • 4 of 5

The unit was just what we needed. We had 2 couples and a baby for most of the week and then another couple joined us for the weekend. The unit is spacious and comfortable. It is the most well stocked unit we have ever rented. Paper supplies, kitchen utensils, dish soap, spices etc. Also, there are not many pet friendly rentals on Siesta Key. The saltwater pool is awesome! The downside is that it is shared with the 1bdr. that is attached. ( I didn't realize this until after we had booked.) And bring your bug spray the "no see ums" were voracious in the morning and evening. The beach is only 3 blocks away. Many restaurant choices close by also. Be sure to read your contract thoroughly. We had an extra laundry charge I had over looked.

Owner's Response: We're glad you enjoyed your stay, our home and our beautiful heated saltwater pool. The VRBO/HomeAway listing description and rental contract clearly state in multiple places that the pool & patio, as well as laundry is shared with the attached 1 BR apartment. Unfortunately just like everywhere else in the world, we have no control over the Mosquitoes and No-see-ums.

Wonderful first visit

  • 5 of 5

The unit was very clean and well equipped. The master bed was very comfortable and clean. The amount of space in the unit was just right for my husband and me. The pool and patio were private and provided for a relaxing atmosphere to enjoy the outdoors. The location was close to Crescent Beach where we walked everyday and to restaurants and shopping. It was perfect for our first visit to Siesta Key and Sarasota.
