The apartment was quaint and cozy, perfect for our family of 4. Quiet area, so close to the beach.

  • 4 of 5

Jim (property manager) was great. Full of information and so kind. This is the closest house to the beach on this road. Beautiful white sand. Unfortunately red tide was a major issue and we could not swim in the gulf. Dead fish were washing up along the shoreline for days. No pool. About 1-2 miles from restaurants, shopping, etc.

patio and grill were nice- we bought food and cooked to save $.

Owner's Response: Well, we had another great family staying AT THE BEACH. We definitely hope we will see them again. We were disappointed that Mother Nature was not very nice to our guests that week. Red tide like we had, has not occurred since 1966. It is an algae that uses all the oxygen out of a patch of water, then the fish swim in the patch and suffocate. Our county gets the fish off the beach quickly but it sure can ruin beach walks and swimming for our guests on vacation. Fortunately we have Ringling Museum, Home and Art Gallery in addition to Myaka State Park, our world class beach, great dining, shopping on St. Armands circle plus live entertainment for our visitors. Our guests rave about these venues as additional attractions.

Quaint little cottage right on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed this rental on the beautiful white sands of Siesta Key! Steps from the beach. Jim is great and spends about 20 minutes with you to instruct you on how everything works and what is expected. Be sure and grab food and drinks before you get there as there is no place on the beach to purchase anything! Closest grocery is about a mile away which isn’t bad if you have transportation. Great little place to stay,

Owner's Response: What a great family. A fun part of managing this property is meeting wonderful people. These guests were no exception. They came to spend family and fun time together and they did so. They loved the beach and the area and we are certainly in hopes they will return. We try to offer more to do than just the beach but some people just want to sit on our world class beach and relax. We always suggest that our guest try to never miss a sunset so they might, if lucky, get to see the phenomenon know as a flash of green. It's something they will never forget..

Perfect walk to Siesta!

  • 5 of 5

The location of this apartment was perfect for us. Our kids, aged 8 and 11, loved using the beach toys that were available. It was so convenient to bring toys and chairs that were already at the apartment on the short walk to the beach. The apartment itself had everything we needed. The kitchen was well stocked, we used the grill, and I was thankful for the washing machine and dryer.

Perfect Home on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

The close proximity to the beach is understated, just a few steps from our door to white powered sand ! Beautiful beach! Jim and his wife made us feel like we were staying with good friends, there was everything we needed for a quite relaxing vacation.

Highly recommend.

Beautiful area, great location.

  • 3 of 5

Siesta beach and surrounding area was beautiful. At the beach where we stayed was so close to the beach we literally walked out our door then through a secured gate and there was the beach. Jim the manager and his wife were very helpful and tried to meet our needs.

The only negative about the apartment is it was a little crowded. i might suggest a little less decorative shelving and a different arrangement of furniture to create more walk through space. Overall a great little place. very quite and peaceful.

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,
