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."

  • We love this place!!!

    "We had the good fortune to spend a week in this condo. It was home away from home. Very comfortable, quiet, great complex, great unit and fully furnished means you have all you need, right down to the tennis raquets and visit. Big enough yet small enough and sunrise on the lanai was priceless. Thx, Mary."

  • Love SK!

    "We go to SK every spring break and rent frequently at Bayside. It's a great location with beach access across the street. This condo fit our families perfectly with the 2 bedrooms for the adults (2 coupled) and the bunk room for the kids. The location is ideal being right across the street from one of the pools and a quick walk to the tennis courts. We love the tennis courts right next to the pools so the kids can swim while the adults play tennis. The view from the veranda of the bay was a plus. We had one issue with a bed but maintenance fixed it for us. Nice updated condo with a fully stocked kitchen. We will definitely stay here again."

  • Quaint hideaway a block from the scene

    "The cottage was perfect for our stay. We were a block from the main bar scene of Siesta Key and two blocks from the beach. Bed was super comfortable, kitchen was more than adequate for some brunch cooking, and we didn't even make use of the bikes or beach stuff that was available."
