  • Wonderful family vacation!

    "A wonderful home away from home! Husband and I from Arizona along with family from Indiana enjoyed relaxing, stress free vacation together! Condo had everything we needed and then some....especially the much needed beach umbrella! This was our first visit to Siesta Key and we hope to make it an annual visit!"

  • The G's

    "We spent a week at the Holiday House and had a wonderful visit. The unit is very clean, spacious, and had much of what we needed including beach chairs and beach towels. It is an easy stroll to Crescent Beach on Siesta Key as well as to stores and restaurants. Andrea, the property manager was great to work with and very helpful. When I asked the family if they'd want to stay there again the answer was 100% positive. Thank you, Bob for providing such a nice place to spend our vacation days!"

  • Perfect!

    "First of all, I would like to say how wonderful Donna was in scheduling our vacation. We had to change our originally scheduled week due to a scheduling conflict. Donna didn't hesitate to re-schedule us with another week that was available, no questions asked. Secondly, the condo was Perfect! It was everything that she describes above & then some! Easy access to the beach, the most amazing sunsets I have ever seen, & the drum circle on Sunday nights is a must (at least for 30 min.) We did rent a boat from CB's (as recommended by Donna) and spent one day fishing in the Bay. My boys had a wonderful time & they caught shark, catfish & mangrove snapper. I would recommend eating at Walt's Fish Market & Restaurant as well as the Sniki Tiki Bar. Both places were excellent! Thank you Donna for making our vacation fabulous ~ we hope to be back next year!"

  • Island Reef vacation

    "Heather's families condo was far better than we expected. It was very spacious and very clean, I honestly can't say enough great things about the condo itself. You really don't need to bring anything but food and clothes, the condo had it all. One thing I forgot to mention to Heather.... just be careful when using the dryer, try not to put anything with a string in it. We ruined a couple a shorts and shirts with pull strings because they got caught up in the door area of the dryer and were torn off. This is nit-picky but good to know. The 5th floor is nice, the views are ok..... the front door view is better than the balcony view. If you are there to sit on the lanai then you will be limited to seeing the gulf, the unit is actually to the far left of the picture shown, with only about a 1/3 of the view. We weren't able to hear the gulf waves either, and this had nothing to do with the condo.... sadly storms have formed a 5 foot wall of sand down on the beach, cutting the beach size in half, but also stopping the sounds from even reaching the pool area. Again, all minor things.... depends on your preferences. The location of the condo was great, far to the south of all the noise of Siesta Key and Crescent beaches, but only a 10 minute drive. Siesta Key and Crescent beaches offer the traditional white soft sand that I'm sure most beach goers expect. Island Reef is on Turtle beach, and the sand there is dark and very very hot, you will need shoes. The pool was huge, with more than enough room for multiple people, and very well maintained, with nice bathrooms as well. The complex has shuffleboard, ping pong, and tennis courts, all of which we used. The grills are located by the pool with tables big enough for a large family. Overall our family had a great vacation!"
