Guestbook comments from the manager

We enjoyed your beautiful house and its location. The only problem i had was i never knew what time it was, but if your on vacation that should be good. My husband said the only thing that was needed was a light in the back yard. The children got great use of the pool.My son had fun catching fish in the canal.

We hope to be back to Siesta Key and will definetly rent from you again. Thank you so much!

Beautiful Home in Paradise!!

  • 5 of 5

It was our first time in Siesta Keys, Florida and we will definitely be returning! This house was everything that we asked for and MORE. My family and I truly enjoyed our stay and have many great memories from our trip. The house is in a perfect location where it is a block away from bars, restaurants, shops, and only a couple blocks away from the beach. All the rooms in the house were spacious and made us feel like we were in our own home. At night time you can hear the fish in the canal jumping and birds chirping which made each night special. We were even lucky enough to see a manatee in the backyard canal!

We planned our vacation (14 days) for this house during Hurricane Irma and the Owner (Jeff) was amazing in calling us, texting us, making sure we were okay and comfortable throughout our stay. On top of that his neighbor (Katia) brought over food, drinks, and many more things just to make sure we were okay.

Overall I highly recommend this home and area to anyone who would like to visit. My family and I will most definitely be returning!

Thank you,

Silvio M

Perfect vacation rental on Siesta Key

  • 5 of 5

This Siesta Key home is the perfect vacation rental.

The location was great. We were able to walk to the beach, bars, restaurants, shops.

It is very spacious inside. Master bedroom is on the opposite side of the home which provided privacy when we had guests.

Pool temperature was very comfortable.

We enjoyed the patio area around the pool and watching the birds,fish etc. on the canal.

I would highly recommend this home.

Great house in a perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our stay of six weeks. We loved that it is in the Village and walking distance to restaurants, shops and the beach. The beach cart was a definite plus. The pool was warm and we used it everyday. Kathy, the local contact was friendly and helpful with local information. Kathy even brought over some of her home made dog treats and cookies. We wanted to stay a bit longer and Jeff, the Owner was very helpful. Beth was so great with questions that we had leading up to our trip. We are already counting the days until our next stay. Loved the home and the Siesta Key area.

Just like home.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a month in 2016. The home is spacious, comfortable and clean. All the necessities are there and available. The location of this house is perfect. It is 1 block from the village and about 4 to the beach. The pool is well maintained as is the house. We lucked out with the weather and the best surprise was at the corner of the street (this house is only the 2nd house in) they had one side of the street blocked for most of the morning and we really didn't give it much thought. Wow, were we surprised when we were going for our walk and saw why it was the blocked. It was the Clydesdales and the keepers. This is where they brought the trailers and did all the harnessing and hooking them up to the carriage. This takes some time so we had the opportunity to meet the horses up close, my favorite being Rocco. Also met Clyde the dalmatian. It was a highlight for sure. The people in the village had no idea they were back there. So once they were hooked up and turned down the street you heard the cheers and cries as they took their stroll through town.

There is a nice farmers market with great produce and some other booths with painting and clothes and other items. And they had a nice spring festival with shops up and down the main street while we were there. The beaches are so nice with the quartz. Quartz does not get hot like sand does so it is always comfortable.

I like the house and the owners and caretaker are wonderful people. We will always stay at this house. We found our second home!!
