  • 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!"

  • Paradise!!!

    "This was our best vacation ever! We rented many condos, houses, cottages before but Audrey & Jim's place is absolutely exceptional and special! The condo has everything you need, it is so clean, welcoming and warm. The kitchen is so beautiful! We spent quality family time cooking and enjoying meals together. The view is breathtaking and relaxing. Siesta Key beach is the best beach with a beautiful white sand. We rented kayak and paddle board. We saw many dolphins. So much fun. Enjoyed long walks on the beach. Our kids are 16 and 13 years old and ever since we came back home they are both asking when we can go back to Audrey and Jim's place! Our teenager kids enjoyed vacation with their parents and want to go back with us, what else can we ask for? I believe it is because of the magical place that Audrey and Jim shared with us. We can not wait to go back!!!!!"

  • Siesta Keys Home

    "Description of property on VRBO was accurate and complete. Location was as described--there were no surprises. House was clean, fully supplied and furnished, and appropriate for use by three couples. We arrived a few hours early and were allowed to take possession at that time, which was very much appreciated. Location was quiet with little traffic. It fit our needs quite nicely and I would consider returning."

  • Beautiful Condo and We love the beach

    "We have stayed at this unit several times and would highly recommend it. It is big, very clean and very comfortable. The pools at Excelsior are a good size and very well maintained. Private access to the gorgeous beach is easy and close-by. Joe, the owner, is a pleasure to work with - You will love this place!"

During the summer months, visitors can check out free concerts in the park to hear a number of musical performances and get down. You can also go wind surfing, jet or water skiing, boating and snorkeling if you want to get up close and personal with the water and take on a more daring adventure.

You can also find more than 100 shops, boutiques, galleries and sidewalk cafes at St. Armand’s Circle along Main Street and Palm Avenue in Sarasota.
