About Mimi (Noemi) Gonzalez

I've owned this house for 20 years and enjoy providing my guests with a house that will make their holiday a special time. I strive to provide a great vacation spot with many ammenities and great service. Holidays are a special time for ourselves and our families, so I keep this in mind and give attention to details. I continuously make improvements to the house to keep it beautiful and fun. I've owned the home since 1989, lived in Sarasota for 35 years. I speak English, Spanish, Un Peu De Français.

Mimi (Noemi) Gonzalez purchased this house in 1989

Why Mimi (Noemi) Gonzalez chose Florida South West

The house is very comfortable and only a few minutes walk to Siesta beach- which was ranked #1 in the USA in 2015, 2014 and 2011. The house is also on the Grand Canal- so you have waterfront and can kayak, or canoe through the canals which lead to the Inter-Coastal Waterways. Or, you can rent a boat and tie up to the dock. A private pool and extensive deck, which faces the sun all day, will make your holiday even more special.

What makes this house unique

Walk to beach- only 1.5 blocks (5 minutes). On the water- 125' on the Grand Canal- 2 kayaks provided and 1 canoe, or you can rent an boat and tie up. The canal is also fun for fishing right from the dock! The Siesta Key Village is not far- only 20 minutes walk, so you can have dinner at the local restaurants and pubs ,and maybe a Happy-Hour, and then have a nice leisure walk back home- or ride the bikes provided!

A fabulous paradise!

  • 5 of 5

The house was in a great location-a 5 minute walk to the beach & a 15 minute walk to the village. Being on the canal was awesome! We loved kayaking & exploring . The pool , hot tub & yard were terrific! The house is comfy & equipped with lots of bikes, beach toys, wagons, coolers, not to mention a ping pong table & foos ball! Mimi is a wonderful owner! Our only regret was that she was away & we didn't get to meet her! We stayed for 2 weeks; we would definitely rent this home again!

Great home with abundant amenities

  • 5 of 5

We booked this property based on its amenities offered and proximity to the beach- and neither disappointed.

The home is in a quiet neighborhood, on a bike able street. A direct bike ride to the beach access. The beach access was just down from the main beach parking- so not in the busiest section, which was nice. Mimi provides a garage full of bikes, wagons, chairs and more to take to the beach. As well as any size cooler you could need. A very handy addition. There are plenty of beach towels for your use. We enjoyed using the kayaks to go around the quiet canal.

The extra items that Mimi provided helped make the house feel more like home. Simple things like laundry baskets and a well stocked kitchen helped a lot. She also provides nice quality linens, pillows and towels. The beds were comfortable as well.

Mimi is an attentive owner, who does her best to answer all questions and accommodate you during your stay. We had one complaint during our time at the home- which she tried above and beyond to fix- and I don't think it will be repeated again, now that she is aware. She truly wants her guests to enjoy there stay, and strives to take each guests comments as a way to make the home better.

Siesta village is a 5-10 minute bike ride away, and you can bike to the small grocery store there. A highlight not to miss was the Sunday evening drum circle on the beach- rain or shine, go at dusk and pack a snack. Great for kids, as they include them in the dancing and music.

Excellent family villa

  • 5 of 5

Our family (two adults, 3 children (12, 10 & 8) had a wonderful relaxing stay at this villa after two weeks in Orlando. The villa was well stocked, with everything we could need to make our stay feel like home from home. The beach and village are easily accessible and the canal side setting with kayaks and canoes for the children to enjoy was a real bonus. Mimi was great to deal with, on hand when required and attentive without being intrusive. We hope to return for another dose of relaxation Siesta Key style.......maybe next year?

Great home, great location, great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family found our home away from home in Siesta Key! We wanted a house with a private pool that was also close to the beach, which is tough to find in Siesta Key. But, Mimi's home checks all the right boxes. It's a ten-minute walk or two minute bike ride to the beach access, which is at the north end of the public beach access area (still pretty private, even on Memorial Day weekend). Also, a five minute bike ride (or two minute drive) to the village restaurants. Even though it's close to the action, the house is in a quiet residential neighborhood; we didn't really hear anybody else and the back yard felt extremely private. The house itself was delightful: great open floor plan, well-furnished, clean, and comfortably equipped. The pool and hot tub were delightful! Finally, Mimi deserves special recognition for making us feel at home, from her rapid responses to email questions as we made the arrangements to her meeting with us at check-in to walk through the home. We'll be back!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

If you are heading to Siesta Key to go to the beach, this is the house for you! A 1 1/2 block walk to the beach, or use one of the included bikes and be there in a minute. A 5 minute bike ride or 20 minute walk to the village and it's neat restaurants, shops, and bars. The home has a very nice pool and great screened lanai. The sliding doors from the living room to the lanai are heavy and a bit difficult to push, but that's about the only issue with the home. The week we stayed a brand new memory foam mattress arrived for the Master Bedroom. It was wonderful. The canal location is great for canoeing and kayaking with included canoe and kayaks. Really nice kitchen and very bright and open feeling to the home.

Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home in a perfect location with a scenic canal running through the back yard. House includes all amenities you could ever want for a fun day at the beach or a bike ride into town. Mimi was very easy to work with, and went out of her way to make sure our vacation was perfect. I Highly recommend this house.
