Great location when attending the Sandcastle Festival

  • 4 of 5

The Hide-A-Way suite was very clean and comfortable. The facilities and furniture are modern and updated. Although it is a one bedroom small unit, there are two outside tables near the pool which offer additional space for morning coffee, afternoon appetizers, and el fresco dining. The king size bed is very comfortable with decorative linen and oversized pillows. The beach is a short walking distance in very close proximity to the very crowded International Sandcastle Sculpture Festival the 2nd weekend in Nov. The town of Siesta Key with all the restaurants is well over a mile, but a trolly provides transportation to and from these locations.

We found Virginia the proterty manager to be very helpful and responsiveness. The only concern we had was the air conditioning. There is a large built in air-conditioning/heat unit in the great room which does not cool the bedroom very well. Therefore at night it is necessary to run the ceiling fan to cool the room and sleep. Although the great room has a queen sized blow matress which is very sturdy, the space gets crowded for 4 adults. However, it's a great bargain for 4 people. We would have preferred at lease 2 bedrooms and bathrooms but they were already reserved. The guests staying in those condos gave us a deluxe guided tour and we were very impressed.

Owner's Response: Dear Ms. Diane, Thank you for your excellent review. The Hide-A-Way suite you rented in a 1 bedroom / 1 bath apartment with a king and a queen luxury air bed. I agree that a 2 bedroom apartment accommodation for 4 adults would have been a better choice, but unfortunately all larger apartments were taken at your time of reservation. The AC wall unit is a hotel grade air condition which cools twice the size of this apartment (about $1,200 sqft). We in Florida know that ceiling fans are necessary to move air around and which maximizes the cold air reaching the entire apartment. You mentioned that the Siesta Key Village is "well over a mile" away from our rentals, but we measured the path and it is exactly 0.5 - 0.7 miles of walking depending from where you start walking from the property. Lucky there are free trolley rides and I am happy to took advantage of it. We loved having you and hope to welcome you back again. Best, Virginia (onwer)

Ideal location

  • 5 of 5

Conveniently located close to the beach. We stayed in two different units and both were tastefully decorated and I had everything we needed. We were very comfortable. Virginia made the checking in and checking out process very easy. It was a nice place for a getaway

The property is BEAUTIFUL!

  • 5 of 5

I made this reservation for my husband's birthday get-away! What a wonderful choice! The Hibiscus was just as expected - bright, cheery, clean and just darling!!! Completely updated, this ground floor unit feels private and secluded, yet close to the pool and beach, too!!! The closeness to both, the village and the beach makes this a PERFECT location! We will be back!

Great apartment and location!

Great location! Apartment is as lovely as advertised. Virginia was easy to communicate with and very accommodating as we ended up checking in earlier than expected. Would definitely stay here again!
