Recent Siesta Key reviews

  • Rustic cottage

    "The proximity of the beach house to the gulf was fantastic. The house was very rustic and charming, however many areas need to be upgraded throughout including the appliances. The beach house is so popular, that it's hard for the owner to schedule some time to get the work done. The pool was not maintained during our 2 week stay, and as a result algae made pool enjoyment impossible halfway through the second week. The pool service was quickly dismissed by the owner."

  • Great Condo! 2014

    "A very enjoyable vacation stay. This condo is very clean and well maintained. The owner is excellent to work with and quickly answered any questions we had. Short walk to the beach, and great water views. We would definitely stay here again, and hope to do so soon!"

  • Perfect Vacation Spot

    "The house is very well maintained and spotlessly clean. My group was 4 Adults and 1 child (10 yr old). Mimi was very responsive and clearly had our interests at heart. She gave us a brief tour when we arrived and made sure to point out all the amenities available. The house is on the canal, and in a quiet neighborhood. The amenities Mimi has provided are impeccable. There are noodles (for swimming) beach chairs, beach towels, sand buckets, shopping carts, table tennis table (and paddles and balls) Kayaks, a canoe, fishing gear (including poles, weights, lines etc), beach bags, pool volleyball set, 6 bicycles etc etc etc. Honestly, we were all blown away by what was provided. The house is even better. 3 bedrooms (enough for 6) comfy beds, extra linens, towels, blankets, pillows. 2 bathrooms (one with a tub), lanai for enjoying the evening breezes. The pool was great and well maintained (pool guy came during the week to clean & service) and we spent many evenings sitting by the dock, enjoying the breeze. The kitchen comes fully stocked with anything one could think of to cook with (including crock pot, blender, toaster oven, dishwasher, huge fridge, electric stove) There's a washer and dryer in the garage that worked like a dream and was big enough to hold several days towels and clothing) The A/C was great too, as it gets hot in August! The beach is a quick 2 block walk, and Mimi provided carts to haul all the beach gear. The village is a little farther, definitely walkable. She also provides a manual that gives you a lot of options in Siesta Key for fun. The house is on a huge lot and has very nice landscaping and is beautifully decorated inside. We all had one of the best vacations we have experienced; aided in no small part by Mimi and the canal house. I would highly recommend it, and we plan on visiting again ASAP! Thanks, Mimi!"
