  • Perfect Vacation

    "My family of 8 had a wonderful time at Villa Elena. The home is beautiful, laid out well, well-stocked with supplies, towels and the kitchen has everything you'll need. It's a short walk to the beach and the host provides beach chairs and a wagon to get stuff there. The pool is a great place for cooling off and relaxing. The lanai is the best room of the house. We ate lunch and dinner there every day. It is great also for reading, game playing and just hanging out. We will definitely go back to Villa Elena. Location is great too."

  • Best view on Siesta Key

    "The sweeping beach views from every room in the house, plus the location within walking distance of all the restaurants and shops in Siesta Key Village made for a most relaxing and memorable family vacation! We liked the layout of the house, with the bedrooms upstairs and away from the living space. The kitchen is well equipped, and the very large flat panel wall-mounted TV in the living room was great for "movie nights". There's a Weber gas grill on the deck outside the kitchen which we used and enjoyed. The garage contained an assortment of beach chairs, umbrellas, floats, toys, etc. which saved us from making our usual trip to a store buy these items. This house is an excellent choice if you're looking for a place where you can just park the car for the duration of your vacation, and walk a very short distance to a great variety of restaurants, shops, and stores (only 0.2 miles to the Daiquiri Deck restaurant/bar!). Being on the northern end of the island, you also have a short and easy drive to Marina Jacks, St. Armands Circle, and other points of interest near downtown Sarasota. Our family thoroughly enjoyed staying in this home, and we'll certainly be coming back in future years."

  • Flawless from beginning to end

    "Rate it 5 stars+++ We have rented from Todd and Mary Knoll many times since December 2006. They have three wonderful rental properties listed at http://newlovevacationrental.com. Our favorite is Gulf Breeze. From the very first inquiry regarding availability until the departure and their follow-up regarding our satisfaction, the entire experience was simply perfect. Hassle-free booking, well-cared-for and clean properties, honesty and superb customer service, immediate communication and follow-up, and a welcoming attitude that keeps us coming back again and again. While I have never met Todd and Mary in person, I can state from personal experience that the properties are as advertised and the rates are competitive. And as a bonus, we have brought our retrievers to stay with us (different dogs depending on the year and who was able to make the trip). To have our dogs share the vacation in a dog-friendly area like this, makes the time even more enjoyable. You can tell if a property and its owners are top-tier; the vacancy is quickly filled. That's the case with this property and the others owned by Todd and Mary. Book early, because there is competition; the satisfied customers are numerous! Todd and Mary, thank you for facilitating so many wonderful memories for us. We look forward to our next trip!"

  • Great stay!

    "We just got back from our stay at 295 Mango St. and are already missing the pool. The property was in great shape and the garage with the ping pong table as well as the pool area were definitely enjoyed by our two teenagers. The gas grill was a great feature as well and was definitely used during our stay. We were in need of a rolling cooler and it was nice to find that the rental company had that available for us to rent and even would've delivered if it hadn't been Sunday. When we arrived we were starving and it was pouring out so the first place delivering that we found was Ray's Pizza. That quickly became our go to delivery place during the week. We rented bikes for the teens during our stay and they enjoyed that, there is a rental place at the end of the street, along with another one a short walk down Estero. After reading all of the positive reviews we decided to try the Heavenly Biscuit at the end of the street. We got there when there wasn't a line and were able to get one of the tables inside. The food was excellent. It was also great having Royal Scoop at the end of the street, I know I dropped $100 in there over the course of the week but Death by Peanut Butter is amazing. We also enjoyed being in walking distance to the Bay Oaks recreation center where the boys were able to go during open gym and play basketball for a small fee. The 7-11 and grocery stores are also close by. You won't be disappointed with a stay at 295 Mango Street:)"
