Beautiful unit, great location but issues with noise and parking
"The owners have done a great job with this unit. It is clean, comfortable and very well appointed. Everything is just as described. Very comfortable for 4 adults. Close to the beach and in the heart of the village. We were a bit concerned with potential noise from the nearby restaurants and bars, but that was not an issue at all. The noise issues we encountered were two-fold. An adjacent unit was occupied by an elderly person who is apparently hard of hearing and lonely. The TV blared most of the night in that unit and unfortunately, the sound travels into one of the bedrooms which makes for a tough night. I'm sure the neighbor has no idea that the TV is too loud. Hopefully, that person was also a tenant and not a renter, as no one else has mentioned it in any of the reviews. The nearby Siesta Key Fitness Center blares techo music most mornings when it opens at 7 AM, which is especially loud on warm mornings when they prop their front doors open. Additionally, we often had no place to park as the fitness patrons would be in the spaces belonging to the Villa. I'm sure we could have called and the property manager would have had them towed, but the fact that the parking wasn't available when we needed it, especially when returning with groceries was particularly annoying. And since the parking pass we were supplied was out of date, we were concerned that our car would also be towed if it were parked when someone was checking for illegally parked vehicles. If the issues with the Fitness Center get permanently fixed, and perhaps a bit more sound insulation added between units, this place would be a 5."

"I spent tons of time researching the perfect beach house for my family vacation in April 2015. I knew the location would be perfect before setting foot down there, but it was more than I even imagined. The village is just a few steps away (pro tip: you can cut through the back of the Daiquiri Deck to get back to the house very quickly!) and the beach is just out the door to the left. Another tip: head down to Sunset Point to watch the sunset. My husband and I cannot imagine staying anywhere else on the island. Pam is an amazing host!"

"The Blue Cottage was a delight to stay in. It is tastefully decorated in great beach colors. The bedrooms are a great size and the kitchen is spacious. There was plenty of room for our nine guests. The house is located steps from Siesta Key beach and is in close walking distance to the village. We look forward to renting this place again in the future. However we will bring a few mirrors with us."

"We have stayed in both these units now and we love them both. These units are well appointed, quiet and well located. You can tell the owner pride in either of these two units by the sparling clean pool water, neatly landscaped yard and beautifully decorated living areas. Now these units are a bit small but so easy to overlook with both a back patio and pool PLUS an enclosed screened in porch in front. Lots of places to kick back and relax. These two units are also quiet. We have never heard the neighbors unless they are walking in or out of the unit. Pool area has a BBQ and two separate areas for each tenant. We just love it here.......absolutely perfect!!"
