"My family and I stayed at this rental home for a week at the end of July. We had a wonderful time. My kids really enjoyed the pool (ages four and six). There were six adults, one teenager, two little kids, and a dog. There was plenty of room. We never once felt like we were all on top of each other. The kitchen served us well, we cooked several dinners, lunches, and breakfasts too. The location was nice, close to a Trader Joe's, Publix (grocery store), shops, and downtown Naples. The beach was about a 15 minute drive but it wasn't a bad drive. We had three cars between us and there was plenty of parking. The week we stayed, the city was doing road maintenance on the street but it wasn't really an issue. We really enjoyed a lot of what Naples had to offer (sunset cruise, paddle boarding, days at the beach, miniature golf with the little kids, and seafood restaurants) then returned home at the end of the day.
The day we arrived we noticed the air conditioner wasn't cooling. We called the property manager listed on the contact sheet provided. He was able to get a repairman out that night (around 8pm) and the a/c was fixed. Yay! Later on the in the week, we went to use the grill on the back porch and noticed the propane tank was empty. My father went to Walmart and bought an exchange. I emailed the owner about the issue and he promptly responded that he would reimburse me for the expense with my security deposit (he did).
All in all, we enjoyed our stay at this house. I would recommend to others."

"Stayed at this condo in June 2014. Absolutely loved it. It was spacious and clean. Had all the things you need for the beach and can't bring on a plane with you. We couldn't have asked for a nicer place or nicer people to deal with. Sue was a sweetheart! The kitchen was awesome, & the beds were comfy. My kids loved the shower heads. If we are lucky enough to visit Siesta Key again, this is where we will stay!!"

"The best Spring Break ever thanks in part to our wonderful accommodations at the Desert Rose! Three generations from California, Texas, Indiana and Florida enjoyed this wonderful Key West inspired house! You will feel at home here. The master bedroom is on the third floor with its own bath and walk out patio. There are two bedrooms downstairs which share a bathroom. There are plenty of linens to meet your needs for the week. I think each room had a TV but I do not believe any of us turned them on! That is a real vacation!!! Skip, the owner, has many books and movies for you to enjoy if you choose. Outside the main floor is a beautiful deck with a hammock which several of us took naps on! So peaceful and calming. The French doors open into a huge family room/kitchen area. The NCAA tournament was watched a few times on a nice flat screen TV! There is a futon and two couches which were great for the kids to sleep on. Seriously, plenty of room in this place! The kitchen had just about everything you need to cook fabulous meals! There is a Weber grill on the porch. Off the kitchen is a laundry room with brand new, large capacity washer and dryer. Out from the kitchen was the porch where we spent a great deal of time. It was kind of a rustic, western theme. At the round table we played cards everyday and build memories with the little kids! Downstairs you will find a pub style, poolside patio. There is a dart board where we had a couple dart competitions! The pool.....wonderful!!!! It was perfect!!! The beach was a short walk away and we went everyday for walks and even flew kites! Skip has a lot of beach toys, beach chairs and a wagon to cart everything. We watched several sunsets and loved the location! The trolley pick up is right down the road and very convenient. One thing I was hesitant about when we booked was the fact that the owner lived on the first level. No problem! In fact, it was nice to have him around. If we needed anything, he was extremely helpful. We look forward to seeing him again when we book this house in the future!!!! Thank you Skip!"
