Enjoyed our time AT THE BEACH

  • 5 of 5

Not sure where to begin! Just got back from our vacation to Siesta Beach and we sure nailed it when we picked this rental! I always look at the reviews before I rent a VRBO and the positives said in the previous reviews are tried and true!

First, Thanks to Jim for the warm and friendly welcome and the tour of this beautiful rental. Jim is on location and available if there is ever a need, but there probably won't be.

Speaking of "location,...." Location, Location, Location! If you are looking for a place close to the beach, this is it. 53 seconds from the beach, but even closer than that to the powdery white sand of Siesta Key Beach! The beach is groomed daily. We even saw dolphins one morning!

Parking - You couldn't have it any easier for carrying suitcases and groceries. There are no steps on this ground floor unit and you are only 13 seconds from the front door! The lock system on the front and back doors is so easy - no keys to lose, just push in a secret code. I always felt safe. You actually walk through a wonderful patio area with a Weber gas grill, an elevated gas fire pit, tables, chairs and comfy seats to get inside.

The rental is very nice inside as well - a well equipped kitchen, nice furnishings, a HUGE flat screen TV, comfy beds, bamboo sheets and towels, and plenty of room.

I will probably kick myself for writing such a complementary and true review, because next time we go to rent this place, it will be booked by YOU! Enjoy it like we did!

Thanks for all your suggestions, Jim. We enjoyed our stay in Siesta Key!

Owner's Response: These guest were delightful and we are so pleased that they enjoyed their stay with us and appreciated our efforts. We work hard to ensure what guests see in our photos and read in our description of the property is what they experience. We also work to ensure that our guest receive benefits that you don't see such as our germicidal blue light systems in our air handlers which kills bacteria, viruses, allergan and mold that causes colds, flus, allergies and sinus infection. We use children friendly pest control. All of our tv's are secured to prevent tip over on children. Our locks eliminate the need for keys so that our guests have their own security code for access. This creates much more safety than accommodations that uses keys where strangers could have access to your accommodations. Reviews from our guests are most important for future guests so we truly appreciate the time and effort of writing reviews.

Jim’s instructions were extreme in detail. Took way to long to explain fairly obvious operations. He lives on site so it seemed unnecessarily detailed

Owner's Response: I appreciate my guests review. I am delighted that he and his family enjoyed the property. He was absolutely right about my being too detailed. Due to an 8 month illness and still being on crutches, I was trying to be very specific so I would not have to answer any questions later as I did not have the strength and energy to do so. Usually my wife does the overview for the guests but she was not available at the time so I had to do it. My guest made a very good point in his review and I truly appreciate his candor. I am sure when I do my next check in I will be more to the point and brief thanks to this guests comments.

Thank you for the most wonderful stay and memories!!

  • 5 of 5

This is by far the best place I have ever stayed at in Siesta Key. It was even better than the Penthouse we stayed at last time, which was much more expensive. And this place was right next to the secure gated entrance to the beach. The unit was decorated in very tasteful but functional decor. The owners have truly thought of every possible need during your stay. The kitchen was equipped with everything you could possible need. You could have an elegant dinner in the dining room, or a family cookout on the patio. At night we roasted marshmallows on the most beautiful firepit I've ever seen! The beach is really only a few steps away and they provide everything you could possibly want, even a cooler. And parking was right next to the patio. You didn't have to carry groceries or luggage up flights of stairs. With that beautiful beach right next to you, believe me, you will not miss a pool. We stayed in Unit #1, and my Granddaughter is in a wheelchair, and she could enter and move inside the rental very easily. I cannot say enough wonderful things about our stay. We will definitely be back.

This was my family's first time staying in siesta key, and needless to say it will not be the last. The home was exactly as described and the location was even better than described. I would recommend this property to anyone wanting to take advantage of one of the nicest beaches in the world.

Sarasota is the leading cultural center of Florida, its rich arts scene rivals some of the biggest urban centers in the country. With dozens of performing arts venues, renowned opera, theatre and ballet companies, numerous art museums, a thriving visual arts community and art festivals that draw visitors from across the globe, it's easy to understand why people come to Sarasota for art vacations instead of beach getaways. Thankfully, the two are not mutually exclusive.

The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art. Housed on the site of the circus magnate's former estate on the shore of Sarasota Bay, the museum hosts one of the largest collections of Rubens canvasses in the world, along with many other works by Old Masters. But that's only the beginning of the Ringling legacy. You can also tour Ca d'Zan Mansion, a magnificent 56-room Venetian Gothic palace that served as the Ringling's residence also see the restored

Historic Asolo Theater -- built in Italy in the late 1800s
