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!

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.

Spring Break 2016

  • 5 of 5

The home was exceptionally nice. My wife loves the large kitchen. Location at end of a very quiet street allowed for great privacy at the pool. Very short walk to beach and sea side activities. An information book on site included local restaurants with phone numbers, activities and local sites of interest was very informative and appreciated. All facilities in the home were very nice and provide a very easy transition to vacation living, move in and start enjoying. A few pleasant amenities such as surround sound from a well designed entertainment permeates the whole environment. Thanks again for sharing your house, we will be ready for a return pool party in the future.

Great Place for Family and Friends!

  • 5 of 5

Every year we come down to stay in Sarasota. We normally stay with a friend, but this year I wanted to have a place closer to the beach. It did not disappoint. Our son brought a friend and they loved the pool and hunting for lizards!! They also commented on how nice it was to have their own beds and a TV in their room. This home was fabulous!! Our friend that lives here stayed a night so for the most part we had 4 adults and 2 kids and had plenty of room. The kitchen was very nice as well. Thanks for letting us stay and we hope to be back next year!!

Great location with in walking distance

  • 5 of 5

Great location with walking distance to the beach, shops, restaurant and a fabulous grocery store. The unit was very accommodating with dishes, utensils, updated appliances and cleanliness. And great to have access to a washer and dryer with a screened in porch. The pool was crystal clear and great to have the umbrellas and patio chairs and tables along with a grill.
