  • Terrific experience!

    "We loved our experience at the Shells! My husband and I stayed for two weeks, and it was our first experience renting a home. The Shells was a great choice. The location was perfect - it is super close to the beautiful beach. Siesta Key has amazing white sand beach. The sand is so fine it looks like white flour, and there are pretty shells to be found. The villa is also very walkable to Siesta Key Village shops and restaurants. The villa was very well appointed. Everything we thought we would want (and a couple things we didn't think of) were provided. I cooked quite a bit, and had no problem with utensils or cookware. Cable, DVD, WiFi, all worked great. There's a small elevator to all the floors, which we didn't really use except as a dumb waiter to carry heavy luggage upstairs. It's pet friendly, which allowed us to bring our little dog along. Finally, the owner/property manager was really friendly and supportive. All questions were answered promptly, and communication was very clear. Our only concern was that the incline on the driveway was such that we sometimes had a hard time keeping the car from scraping on the bottom. Nothing insurmountable though. We would absolutely recommend the Shells and will definitely be back!"

  • ...a dream come true

    "Our recent visit is one that we will never forget. As avid DIYer's, we never seem to slow down and are constantly working on our projects. Since we were coming to Florida for a wedding, we felt that this would be a good time to try & teach ourselves how to relax. From the time I contacted Nita about booking to the time we arrived back home, we couldn't have been more pleased with how smooth everything went. After having a couple of bad experiences with vacation properties we've rented, we were both very skeptical. We were truly blown away with this property. From the cleanliness, having everything one would need in a kitchen, the bed in the master bedroom, the pool... I could go on and on. Having a design background, it was so nice to be in a place that was not cluttered and was tastefully done with all the finishes matching. Some vacation rentals look like they've shopped at garage sales. Not so for this little piece of heaven. It was also very nice to have Clayton's at the end of the street. We ate there several times. Yes, we did learn to relax and hopefully we will return for needed retraining:)"

  • Wonderful Turtle Beach Property

    "We just returned from a week stay at this property. Our family really enjoyed our time here. The house is beautiful and has everything you need for a great vacation rental. We love the quite area that Turtle Beach offers and It's proximity to the beach. Monika was a pleasure to work with and made the rental process very easy. I highly recommend this property and can't wait to visit again! The Blount and Flanders Family"

  • Another Great Week

    "This was my family's second time staying at this condo. Another unforgettable week of fun and relaxation. The condo upgrades were spot on. This is just a beautiful place to stay at Siesta Key. Days on the beach, sunset dinners on the patio, and short walks into the beach village. If you have time go to The Broken Egg for a great breakfast on Sunday morning and go over to the little farmers market. We have already booked for 2015."
