Grandpa and me in front of our family beach house (ca 1972)
AK26 Owner- Jane Doster/Aloha Kai Property Manager- Hollis Higgins purchased this villa in 1972
This beach house has been in our family for four generations. We share it with you and your family to create wonderful vacation memories of your own!
Convenient ground level for easy access to the beach. Private lanai with full (180 degree) beach/gulf views. Detached single family villa. No shared walls.
Not exactly the family vacation we imagined, due to a freak cold front, but location, location, location. Watching the storm over the ocean moving in with lighting from the screen porch, lighting up the entire sky, it doesn't get much better than that for a first night, especially considering I had just wrapped up a night beach walk with our boys just minutes before the storm commenced. With great family amenities such as the pool, clubhouse, beach chairs, etc., it was impossible not to have a great time. Centrally located between downtown Siesta Key and commercial shopping center(Publix), with a great beach access. Looking forward to heading back, but hopefully the weather will cooperate this time, so we can enjoy more family beach time
This 2-bedroom villa is actually more attractive than the website pictures portray. The villa is tastefully decorated with comfortable furniture for reading and watching television, a large kitchen fully equipped for people who love to cook, and the linens provided were above average quality and plentiful. WiFi was above average, including DVR capability not often seen in rentals. The lanai was an added bonus - perfect for cocktails, conversation, or just relaxing and/or reading a book. We had company for part of the time and there was plenty of room, we never felt crowded. We will definitely go back in the future.
You will NOT find a better location to enjoy one of best beaches in NA. Roll out of bed... and you are on the softest, whitest, sugar-sand beach ever. Of course, there are more than few other people on the beach... given the neighborhood high-rise condos, but Aloha Kai has a very nice and relaxing "setback" for the busy walk along the shore. The kitchen, kitchen equipment and bathrooms could enjoy some updating...but overall clean and livable when the snow is blowing "up north". Oh... and YES.. the sunsets are also "worth the trip".
This property is in a wonderful location, you can see beach from the living room and master bedroom, you can walk from the house across to the yard and then you are in sand. Quiet too. Good sized rooms. Private garage for two cars. Everything was in good working order and comfortable. It could use a little updating, and it could be cleaner. Overall, really enjoyed staying here with my family.
The unit was fantastic!!! We left falling in love and wanting to buy it!
You can't beat beachfront property with your own private patch of grass and privacy! We had our 2yr toddler with us so great to watch him safely play in grass and sand right out the lanai. The owner should invest in better lanai furniture so guests can really relax and enjoy it to the fullest. We had to use pillows since the plastic lounger was hurting as much as we were lounging! It is a special beachy cottage with older furnishings but that didn't matter to us as we are laid back and just thought the location, privacy, and charm was what counted!
Had an excellent stay with my family, the property was exactly as described & much more. The beach was a few steps away and the villa was very private. The pool was just a few minutes away and the sunsets you could view from the villa or the beach.
We brought our 5 yr and 6mo so it's perfect for a family or just a special getaway.
Celebrated my 50th with my girlfriends and stayed at this property. We couldn't have asked for anything more..we had a beautiful beach and ocean in the backyard! The location is absolutely perfect and the photos on this website accurately reflect the property. Very clean and well maintained, and everyone we dealt with was very nice & helpful. Everything was provided, including beach towels & beach chairs. We stayed in Siesta Key last year, and now that we've found this property, we hope to stay here every year.
Thank you for sharing this wonderful property with us. I couldn't have asked for a better 50th, and the location had a lot to do with that!
