Perfect place to spend Christmas!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was just right for the two of us Cape Codders to get away from the freezing weather. The photos portray it exactly as it is: cozy, comfortable and outfitted with everything you could need for a week or a month. The neighbors are friendly and welcoming. We are very familiar with Sarasota and Siesta Key so the beautiful white sand beach was no surprise, AND it really is right down the street! We would definitely return here - a terrific getaway!

So wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I brought our one year old to the beach for the first time and this was the perfect place! It was very clean and pleanty of space. The beach was so close and the use of chairs and an umbrella made it very comfortable. The location was wonderful. I would have liked more toilet paper and a sponge but luckily it is very close to supermarkets, 7-11 etc. we would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a laid back no fuss beach vacation.

Such an enjoyable beach vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Holly was great to work with! She was quick to answer any questions and was only a text away. She recommended some great restaurants that did not disappoint.

The condo was very cute and clean! Everything is pretty much provided for you: beach umbrella, beach chairs, beach toys, etc. There is clothesline at the opposite end of the building so that you can hang your suits and towels to dry.

My boyfriend and I loved staying here!

Small, clean, relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

This unit was the perfect size for my husband and I, very clean and comfortable. Everything that you would need is located in the unit (beach towels, an umbrella for the beach, cookware). It was a major plus to have beach chairs already there! The only negative I can think of is the walk to the beach, granted it's not very far but when carrying an umbrella, cooler and beach supplies it feels like a much longer walk than it actually is. The beach in Siesta Key is beautiful and Holly was great to work with! I would definitely recommend this condo!

Lovely unit at a reasonable price with great beach access.

  • 4 of 5

We found this unit to be very clean with more than enough room for two people. We never had an issue with parking (assigned spaces). I liked being one floor up also. Access to the beach was simple and the complimentary lounge chairs that are ready for you at the beach is a big plus.

Future renters might want to know of the drawbacks to this unit.

No dishwasher.

I'm fine doing my own dishes but I wonder who did them before me. How meticulous were they? I washed each dish twice. Once before use and once after.

The pots and pans were limited but everything else was well stocked.

The living room furniture could stand an upgrade and a coffee table is desperately needed.

Now, I know I'm gonna get blowback for saying this but THE TVs ARE AWFUL.

I know.."You don't go to the beach to watch TV!" but this is MY vacation and maybe I had planned on binge watching a new series at night. Maybe I want to plug in my Chrome or Firestick (not gonna happen with these TVs). Maybe I think 13 inch TVs are too small for someone with vision issues.

A brand new 32 inch HDTV is $130. One could easily be mounted to the wall.

The bed was perfectly comfortable but cheap. Every time my partner moved, I felt it. Either a new mattress or a very good mattress pad is needed.

Bring your own beach towels.

There is a requirement that the beach towels be washed before checkout. Note that there is no washer/dryer in the unit. if you don't mind doing laundry on vacation at the on site facility on your last day at the beach, disregard this.

Overall, it's fine. Has room for improvement.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and the compliment of a very clean unit. We pride ourselves on the cleanliness of our units including the dishes. Our professional and competent cleaning crew goes through the dishes to make sure they are clean. Unfortunately we cannot install a dishwasher or washer/dryer in the unit, as the building was built in the 50's and we are limited to additional installation of plumbing. There is a coin operated laundry facility in the building. The TV in the living room is 19 inch and in the bedroom it is a 23 inch. Limited space does not allow us to install the living room TV on a wall--it would overlap and would be in the way when someone walked passed it. Hopefully in the future, we can construct something on the wall to accommodate a larger TV. The living room TV is about 6 feet away from the sofa and chairs. The overall size of the unit is small, however in a fantastic location on the #1 beach in the country. (Just over a 100 steps to the private beach entrance) We feel it is truly a great value at a weekly rental rate of $895 in the summer months. Average rental rate for Siesta Key on the beach side in the summer is about $1300 a week. No walking across a street and free beach chairs on the beach for renter use. We will certainly look into the bed, however it is on the newer side and we believe in providing comfortable, high quality beds in our rentals. Once again, we thank you for your feedback.

Small, Neat, and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location. Clean and well maintained grounds. Management and security personnel friendly, courteous, and helpful. Quiet neighbors. Hassle free experience.

Have been vacationing/visiting family and friends/enjoying the beach on Siesta Key for 45 years now, most as a local property owner. Sold recently and have been trying various rentals on our bi-annual return trips.

Being accustom to the bigger complexes, we found Siesta Beach House a refreshing experience. Simple, uncrowded, easy access to amenities like convenient reserved parking, spacious private beach, laundry facilities, pool, and such made for a relaxing stay. No frustrating elevator traffic!

I would definitely return should we not elect to sample other similar rentals.

Sarasota area and Siesta Key rule! I'll never tire of this place.
