Overview

About the property

2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 5

Moomist Villa is an idyllic setting to relax and rewind. It is located within Polynesian Gardens across the street from beautiful Siesta Key beach (Number 1 on the list of Top 10 most beautiful beaches in the USA). Out the front door you have a “peek-a-boo” view of the bay with boats cruising by. Out the back sliding doors you look on an ancient oak covered with resurrection fern, orchids & bromeliads & a stone path to your own private hot tub in the middle of the jungle of tropical flora.

When you walk in the front door you will be captivated by the arched ceiling painted to look like the sky. The living room is charming & tropical, the sun porch/TV room is comfy and cozy and has a sleeper sofa. The kitchen is properly “beachy” with open shelves & bamboo countertops. The master bedroom with a queen bed & wicker chests is a sanctuary ala Tommy Bahama style. The second bedroom has twin beds and is bright & Floridian.

SORRY: NO Smoking & NO Pets

Great Vacation at Moonmist

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, along with our daughter and her 2 children (9 and 5) thoroughly enjoyed our time spent at Moonmist Villa! The property was clean and well-maintained. The swimming pool in the complex was also very impressive (impeccably maintained), and a short walk. It was as if we had our own private pool! The public beach and Siesta Key Village and shops were a short drive away! We were there over the 4th of July and the condos with beach access across the street were having nothing to do with letting us "cut through"to the beach!

Owner's Response: There are two convenient public beach accesses -- one is less than 1/3 mile south and the "main" public beach with lifeguards, bathrooms and a snack bar is about 1 mile north. Most of the time the condos across the street will let you cut through, but on holiday weeks they hire extra guards to keep non-residents from using their access.

Wonderful location. Well maintained. Very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location and the cute neighborhood. Kids swam in the pool so that was a nice option for non-beach days. Definitely check out siesta beach on Sunday at dusk for the drum circle. So much fun! Would stay here again on our next vacation!

Beautiful house, beautiful and very quiet neighborhood and central to everything!

  • 5 of 5

Moonmist is a gorgeous home in an idyllic and peaceful neighborhood. The house is clean and very comfortable, with a private backyard and hot tub! You're located within walking distance to Crescent/Siesta Key beach, and there's so much to do! Jeannette was very helpful and accommodating, offering restaurant suggestions and nearby attractions. If you're looking for a quiet setting, you won't be disappointed! The neighborhood pool is a short walk and hardly ever crowded! I absolutely recommend Moonmist for your Siesta Key getaway!

Lovely Villa with all the amenities

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here in Siesta Key in your nice villa. It had everything we needed. It was close to the pool and the wonderful pier. We sat at the pier several evenings looking at the boats going by. We even used your fishing rods and caught several fish. The stay at Polynesian Gardens made our Florida stay complete.
