Wonderful Condo Right Next To The Beach

  • 5 of 5

This was our best beach vacation ever. Condo was great. The beach was unbelievably nice. No hassles -- just enjoyment and a great beach vacation experience.

The condo has all of the amenities we wanted plus-more. It has an extra half bathroom off of the bedroom. This was very nice. The main bathroom looked brand new, modern and CLEAN. The interior was well furnished and very comfortable. The Wi-Fi worked great in the villa and worked at the large swimming pool next to the office.

We walked to the south bridge restaurant and shopping area (less than one mile each way) along the beach. We got coffee, shopped in the classic small upscale beach grocery store and enjoyed the nice people working there. Three nights, we walked along the beach to Siesta Key Village while enjoying the sunset; ate in three nice upscale, casual and moderately priced restaurants; and caught a free ride (just tip them $5.00) home. The free ride was in a six person golf cart like vehicle and it was really fun.

The staff and other guests were very nice and the couple next door who life there year round were particularly nice and helpful.

If you have not been to Siesta Key, you need to experience it. If you have never used VRBO, you have missed a great concept. This complex and villa were wonderful. We will be back.

This was a great Siesta Key beach vacation. The beach was perfect. White soft sand with beautiful blue green water. Plenty of complimentary beach chairs and cabana space. No crowds on this part of the beach. Gorgeous sunsets.

Our villa was very close to the beach, very modern, nicely furnished and comfortable. Enjoyed the flat screen HD TVs, the Blu-Ray player, Wi-Fi and Bose radio. Open design for the living, dining and kitchen areas. It was a real full sized kitchen with new full sized built in appliances and very neat and clean.

Five star clean, nice sized, modern bathroom with new fixtures and glass enclosed walk-in shower.

Five star bedroom with comfortable king sized bed, flat screen TV, and large closets.

Very friendly staff. Wonderful complex. We will return.

Excellent And Modern Villa Right Next To The Beach

  • 5 of 5

Very modern and clean apartment inside of a cute Florida style villa exterior. Has a large open concept living and dining area flooded with plenty of natural light. The white plantation shutters on the many windows match the crown molding. Very nice furnishings, a large HD TV, a full size clean kitchen and Wi-Fi make this a perfect place next to the beach. The secret is that this villa has a new, very clean and modern full bathroom with a walk in shower plus a half bathroom off of the bedroom. That extra half bathroom was great. The bedroom was nice and had a new smart HD TV.

There is a full sized charcoal grill in the back yard -- yes, this is a one story duplex with grass side yards separating you from the neighbors. We never heard and sounds from the couple in the other side of the duplex because of its unique design. We made fast friends with the couple next door and had a great time with plenty of privacy. This is a laid back complex with plenty of space to spread out and enjoy yourself.

The large private beach with complimentary beach chairs, lounges and cabanas was outstanding. The sun sets over the water and it is beautiful.

The swimming pool was huge and very nice with a large deck. There were plenty of chairs and tables on the deck and you never felt crowded. We could relax and enjoy ourselves in a very nice tropical setting.

The staff was great and friendly. The two permanent residents on either side of us came right up and introduced themselves and offered all of the help and advise we needed. It was like a big reunion even though this was out first time at Aloha Kai. But, it will not be the last. We want my parents to join us next year and stay in the other side of the duplex.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for Thanksgiving week. 2014 and it was perfect. The location is great, close to everything including Sarasota. The unit has been totally upgraded with both a modern kitchen and full bath with an awesome shower. The added bonus of a 1/2 bath really comes in handy. Flat screen in both the living room and bedroom was also an nice touch. The beach is steps away and the pool was never busy. This may be our new "go to" place when we visit the area.

Stayed closer to the beach in an outstanding beautiful beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

A GREAT location close to the beach. An easy morning stroll down the beach for less than a mile and we were at the south draw bridge restaurant, shopping and beach bar area for a quick lite breakfast and a newspaper. A relaxing walk back to the large private beach area, beach cabanas, beach chairs and a morning reading a nice book on an awesome beach with no crowds around us. Into the well equipped cottage for a lunch basket and away to the large pool for a relaxing lunch, lounging in the fresh water pool and reading the remainder of my book(s). Back to our nearby cottage for a change of clothes and off about two miles to one of many good restaurant in Siesta Key Village for a beach cocktail and another excellent meal. we walked to and from the Village twice -- a great experience in itself. Back to the Aloha Kai private beach and a gorgeous sunset over the blue green ocean. This was a great week and a really nice place to stay. No crowds, no lines to wait in, a very pleasant staff with great recommendations on activities, a BEAUTIFUL beach and very nice cottage. This is will be an annual vacation to experience everything beach vacations are all about.

Beautiful villa steps from the best beach we have seen

  • 5 of 5

Very stylish interior with stunningly attractive plantation shutters that allow plenty of natural light into the rooms. Very clean and comfortable. Looked like a new unit and was much better than we expected. Enjoyed the Wi-Fi service, the new TVs and the Bose radio. We had a full sixed BBQ grill in the back yard and used it a lot.

Very close to the beach. We walked to the beach with our morning coffee and watch the beach come alive in the cool morning breeze. A great beach to walk on and enjoy. The pool was huge with a large deck with plenty of chairs, lounges, tables and umbrellas.

Very close to Siesta Key Village and its restaurants, beach bars and shops.

Overall, Aloha Kai was very relaxing and an outstanding beach experience that we will do again each year.
