Our recent stay was quite enjoyable. The cottage/duplex is well situated being just a short walk to Siesta Village. We stayed in cottage one which is clean, quaint, and well appointed. The complimentary basket of treats were awesome! The pool area is great offering plenty of sun in the morning and some shade in the afternoon. The property owners were very responsive to any concerns or questions. Cottage two wasn't occupied during our stay so I can't attest to privacy and noise levels, but I doubt it would be an issue. If you're a couple looking for an affordable getaway to Siesta Key I highly recommend Sea Palms. This property is also ideal for two couples to book both cottages. Cheryl and her husband are great to work with.
