About Garey

As a native of Sarasota, I grew up riding horses on Siesta Key and building bonfires on the beach at night with my friends. Things have changed a lot but I would never think of leaving. I love the Key as much now as I did then.

Garey purchased this condo in 1988

Why Garey chose Florida South West

This is reminiscent of a lazier time in Florida when things moved more slowly and revolved around beach walking, sunsets and drinks with friends. This is not Corporate Condo living. This is a unique cottage (much as you would see in Key West) for guests who enjoy the flavor of 'Old' Florida.

What makes this condo unique

How could you beat being right across the street form access #8 and .03 (yes, .03) miles to the village! No need for a car just flip flops and a straw hat.

The property was great.

  • 5 of 5

The property is located a short distance from town and from beach access 8. It is very clean and well taken care of. We had a great week and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Garey, the owner, called to check on us a couple of times to make sure we had everything we needed. He is great to work with and he had everything you needed for your stay including beach chairs and and umbrella. Thanks for a great week

Our Paradise away from home. Garrett was a perfect host. He checked to make sure we arrived safely and everything was explained perfectly. Brenda had the home so clean and looking amazing! The king size bed was so comfortable and the private patio provided some nice evenings to sit outside. The closeness of the home to Beach access #7 and Siesta Village made our stay outstanding. We are looking forward to returning next year and possibly sooner if time allows! Thank you for an amazing vacation and we recommend this home and Garrett to anyone looking to get away😎🏖

Great owner and location

  • 5 of 5

Garey & Brenda were very nice and accommodating. Great location. Walk to restaurants, bars, shops, market and beach. About 1/4 mile to all the above. Short drive to Sarasota. Quiet at night. Parking right next to the unit. Clean and well equipped and I get the feeling if it doesn't have what you need the owners will help you out. Hope to be back someday!

We arrived and found the rental just cleaned and in good order. We were very comfortable during our six week stay. Location across the street to the beach access is ideal, as well as an easy walk into the village. Garey and Brenda easy to work with and very accomodating. FIVE STARS!

Great location in Siesta Key.

  • 4 of 5

I spent the past 2 months at this cottage and I loved it. It was very comfortable for me and my dog. I loved the enclosed garden and the space, in general.

Gary, the owner, and his sister-in-law, Brenda, who lives next door were wonderful. They were very eager to help if there were any problems and really on top of everything. I'm returning next winter.
