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 Siesta Key

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!

If you’re bored it’s your own fault😁

  • 5 of 5

Mimi was a great communicator!!! She was prompt to answer all questions-which we didn’t have many of as everything is explained in the rental agreement. She has every kitchen amenity you can imagine plus grills. As well as every beach/pool amenity one needs. We enjoyed walking to the beach with the chairs, beach towels, paddle ball and beach bags provided. We did not use sun brella, kids toys, beach wagon, etc. We would kayak in the early mornings or late evening-she had a double and singles with paddles/life vests. We had ping pong contests though did not use foos(sp) ball table. We biked into ‘the village’ every evening for an icecream and a few dinners. The pool was warm and refreshing and the hot tub nice after our morning beach runs or evening beach/sunset watching. There was toilet paper, soap and spices(salt/pepper, etc) -though we did buy everything at Publix on the way in. If we needed something small we would bike up to the market. We biked up to Davidson drugs for some puzzles. Seriously-there was everything we needed at Mimi’s for a fantastic Thanksgiving week at the beach.

Beautiful relaxing vacation home with all the amenities

  • 5 of 5

This place is awesome! All the details were thought of to make this one of the best vacations we’ve had. There are ceiling and box fans in every bedroom, everything that’s needed for a day at the beach including wagons,beach toys, bikes and coolers. The outdoor shower was so helpful for washing off before going inside. The house is clean and spacious and the pool and hot tub were so much fun. There’s even a ping pong table. Mimi was so responsive if we had any concerns. We will definitely stay here again!

This house is set up for everything you need for a wonderful relaxing vacation!! Very nice pool and views of the canal. Rooms are a great size! Short walk to the beach or town.

Siesta Key is our favorite beach! I can’t say enough about the calm clear water and the white sand. Absolutely amazing! Perfect for my small kids.

Mimi goes above and beyond to make your stay enjoyable. This house comes with so many extras many places do not offer. Can’t wait to stay here again!

It was awesome

  • 5 of 5

They have everything you need in this house. Want to spend a day at the beach, there are several different ice chests to use, fishing poles, chairs, beach towels and even a cart to take everything down there. Used the Kayaks each day. Very cozy.

Love this house!

This is our 3rd year renting this house for our Florida visit. The house is well maintained, it is close to the beach, has a pool and Jacuzzi, has a boat dock where we can dock the boat we rent for the week, has bikes, kayaks, ping pong and a wonderful outside porch to sit and watch the rain. It is in a nice quite section and super close to the town. Highly recommend!!
