About Jeannette Watling
I grew up on the beach in NC and now live on the beach in Sarasota -- always a beach girl. There's something about being near the sea that is good for the soul.

This is a dream vacation spot if you like to unwind and relax.. the pool I had to myself for my workout.. the water temperature was heavenly.. the free shuttle that passes by on the main road lets you see all there is to see without the worry of driving and parking... I loved this vacation
Nice location, lots of room. Enjoyed our stay
Polynesian Gardens - Moonmist Villa
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our 3 week stay at Moonmist Villa. The house had a tropical feel and was spacious. We loved the intercoastal dock and the proximity to Siesta beach and to Siesta Village.
A wonderful spot to stay! Home was very clean and comfortabl. The hot tub was a great addition.
The home was great, everything we needed as an adult family. Hot tub was a nice addition. Location was great. Very comfortable. We found access to the beach somewhat challenging but we were able to find our way through other properties. We would certainly return next year or in the future.
Cute house, excellent location
We really enjoyed our stay in Siesta Key. The house was very cute. It is located in a tiny little development right off the main road, very close to the bridge that takes you back to the mainland. It almost feels like a little oasis as you pull off the main road and into this little cluster of homes. There is a pool in the middle of the development, a very short walk from the house. I only heard about the walkway to the bay later, as we felt so insulated i our little nook that I didn't realize that the bay was a stone's throw away. I wish I would have found the path. The house was priced well, clean, and accessible. The owner instantly responded to any question that we emailed to her. We had an issue with one of the toilets (master bedroom, not flushing fully), and although it wasn't fixed during our stay, it wasn't enough of an issue to sour me on the house or the owner. You can walk to the beach, which requires cutting through another development - supposedly it isn't an issue - though we drove to another beach on Siesta Key where friends were staying. The sand on the beach was unbelievably nice. It was white, powdery, and cool to the touch on a very hot day. This house is not a walk to the main downtown area. If you are looking for that, this isn't the house for you. We had a car, so we didn't care. We actually preferred being near the bridge, as you can find every store or restaurant that you need about 2 minutes from the house. The main drawbacks are ones that didn't bother of affect us. For example, if you don't want to have to cross the main road and cut through another development to reach the beach (or drive 30 seconds to the public beach), that could be a deal breaker. If you want to be able to walk into town, that could be a deal breaker. But we loved the little development and thought the house was cute. And as I stated earlier, the quick access to the mainland was nice.
My family enjoyed our time in Siesta Keys and we loved the Villa. It's very roomy and has everything you need to enjoy your stay. We loved fishing on the pier and we actually caught fish every night. The swimming pool in lovely also. For the price we paid this was a great deal. The rest of my family (staying in other condos) were very jealous.
