  • What a view!

    "Got home safe. Hated to leave. Keys in the mail. Did we have fun? Let's see: Wonderful, beautiful , huge condo with everything we needed. Made breakfast and some lunches. Gorgeous view of the soft white sandy beach Siesta is famous for. Outstanding view of the Gulf from our Lani that stretched all the way across the condo. Sat and watched the sunsets.Walked the beach at sunrise and sunset. Great pool. We were the only ones in it most of the time. Great to take a dip after a day on the beach. Shelling on nearby Turtle beach was great. Visited the state park, hunted for alligators and walked the "Canopy". Went to Mixon's farm and toured the orange groves, toured their wild animal sancturary and held an alligator, a python, a bald eagle and other animals. Great photos. Fun in Siesta village with dinners at the Hub, Salty Dog, and the Daiquiri Deck. Best dinner was at Carragas Italian Grill. Donuts and Olaf's ice cream every night is a must in the village. Went Jet Skiing (only fell off twice), Parasailing on the gulf. What a ride! Visited Venice beach and did some shopping there. Not much of a circus person and I hate clowns but anybody who goes to Sarasota has to visit the Ringling Museum and Mansion. An absolute must see. We had perfect weather. Only rained the last night of our trip. Wife and daughter bought a lot of stuff-- I just paid. A great vacation. Would not mind moving down there (in your condo) Hope to call you again in the future!"

  • Perfect Getaway

    "Beatifull villa. We liked the kitchen and the confortable bedroom with an access to large patio. Extremely well kept and maintained. Great amenities: heated pool with hot tub, tennis courts. Quiet and very friendly neighborhood. You can easily make friends if you want. Just off the one of the main roads that takes you quickly to downtown Sarasota, one of the most beautiful places in Florida and many of its beaches. Our favorite is the Siesta beach, ranked as No.1 beach in USA. We had great and hassle free stay in this villa and we highly recommend it."

  • Love Spoonbill Hideaway!

    "This was our 4th trip to Anna Maria and our 2nd stay at Spoonbill Hideaway. You can't beat the location, the house and especially the back yard and pool area! Comfortable beds are important to me when I vacation and the "no stairs" is definitely a plus. Melanie is very accommodating!! We are already starting to plan next year's trip and hoping it will be at Spoonbill Hideaway."

  • A secluded hideaway in an otherwise crowded town

    "I chuckled reading the "surround yourself with wildlife" heading before we booked, only to find out there is wildlife on Lake McGregor. OK, nothing on the scale of the Loch Ness monster, but a pretty good selection of birds. The unit was terrific. We chose the location to be closer to numerous baseball games, so it worked for us. The major spaces (kitchen and 2 baths) have been recently upgraded with high end finishes. The real gem is the outside space which is very peaceful and serene. The traffic in Ft. Myers, the first week of high season is maddening. Coming home to this setting every night was very nice. The area was very quiet. Things to be careful about: There really isn't any indoor dining space. My guess is that the kitchen renovation took out that area. You end up with a very large and nicely appointed kitchen. Going back to the outdoor space - it becomes your dining room. Which we liked. There's plenty of space in the living room to slouch with your meals. Anywho. You're going out most nights or doing take-out. Unless you're bringing grandma to put out an 8 course Thanksgiving meal every-night, you'll be fine. The internet connection slowed to modem like speeds during our stay. I brought this up which the owner responded he pays for fast service and has complained to the cable company. Later during the same week, we visited two other Florida resort areas and found the same, slow internet. The owner was correct. The shear density of people, along with multiple devices that families now possess in these units, just drag the internet to a crawl. Everywhere. I also brought with me two, cellular internet hubs. Even they slowed to a crawl. You are going to have to read a newspaper. Sorry kids. We had a small maintenance issue in the unit the owner promptly handled the incident, even though it wasn't crucial. Overall, we would return to this same unit, or consider renting from the same owner. A neat, local dining find was The Prawnbroker. It's where the locals go. It's crowded, but we had a fine time chatting up the locals in the bar waiting for our table. Our meal was terrific."
