  • Great Siesta Key home on the beach

    "It does not get more on the beach than this! We enjoyed a great week. After a week in Orlando we were looking for a beach side retreat. This was perfect. The location of the property is superb - firstly its right on the beach. We enjoyed this element in every way. Great to get up, make coffee and see the first of the early walkers on the beach by 6am! Great to not have to drive to the beach - we brought many beach items with us, but Ron also kindly provides an array of chairs, parasols, kids toys, kites etc. so superb to just pick up our beach kit and walk straight out. It was also great to enjoy the beach for a couple of hours in the morning, then head back to the house for lunch still enjoyng the beach view then head back down in the afternoon. Finally, at the end of the day we'd BBQ on the beautiful deck which runs the entire rear of the home again overlooking the beach. The beach was peaceful, not at all crowded. The sand is amazing and the gulf was so warm. We built sandcastles and fished. The other benefit of the location is its proximity to Siesta Key Village - the village is perfect in size with a great mix of coffee shops and restaurants - just a few mins walk from the house. Highly recommend the property - we'e taken great memories from it. Comms from Ron were great. The Portlock Family, ENGLAND"

  • A great place to stay and relax !

    "A friend of mine had spent his vacation in this condo last year and he was delighted! Coming to Sarasota for the first time, I had a rough idea about the Siesta key area; well I completely changed my mind! The condo is in a very quiet area of the Siesta key, away from the noisy restaurants and shops, you need certainly a car but it seems a bus line is also operating in the area. The condo is just awesome with all you need inside, just bring your suitcases! It’s clean, well decorated and have luxury appliances, but the private beach is a must. Well enough to say that we spent our vacation either on the beach or in the swim pool or making BBQ beside the beach house! The owner is very nice and helpful and gave us plenty of good restaurant addresses and places to visit. We are already planning to come back next year!"

  • Perfect beach week

    "We would strongly recommend this property for any number of reasons. The location was great - short walk through the dunes to the beach and only a few blocks to Siesta Key Village. Sharing the pool with only two other homes meant it was our private pool much of the time. The kitchen was extremely well equipped which was important as we cooked a lot...and the dining table sat 6 so we could have dinner and play games afterwards. The structure is solid which meant lots of sound privacy, important when young adults were staying up late. We were thrilled with the beach equipment - the canopy, the coolers, the skim board, the chairs. The owner was very responsive to our requests. Try Full Moon Yoga on the beach and the Drum Circle!"
