Owner Supplied Testimonials

I walked in this condo and was totally blown away with the view! A huge living room with big flat screen tv's. The condo furnishings were amazing! Just updated, very clean. The condominium complex is beautiful and a perfect area on Siesta Key. Guarantee you won't be disappointed! We will be renting this again next winter. The owner was very helpful and great communication. We love Siesta Key and Sarasota!

You seem to have thought of everything one would need or could want. The decor was lovely and comfortable; the appliances and electronics, superb; the entire condo, easy to maintain; storage, most ample; and, of course, the magnificent views of the beach or other areas of Siesta Key, well captured from every room. I loved the colors, the textures, the art, the choices for flooring, and walls . . . ad infinitum. Very helpful was the detailed notebook you designed with information about Siesta Key, Crystal Sands, and the condo itself. We referred to it daily and enjoyed some of the restaurants (particularly Ophelias) that were listed. Also we loved the fact that you had things for children to do. Though ours did not visit, we noticed that you seemed to have fun/interesting choices ready for use. Very thoughtful!

All we can say is "wow"! Your condo is beautiful as well as the view. So excited to stay here for two amazing weeks!

We very much enjoyed your beautiful unit. Our compliments on your thoughtful and tasteful renovation.

The condo is beautiful, even better than expected. The weather is more than cooperative and we are looking forward to our stay on the key.

Thank you very much for opening up your vacation home for our enjoyment. We all loved it! You have a beautiful condo.......having a place with such a beautiful view, made a pleasurable vacation for me. My three daughters were very happy too!

Just wanted to let you know what a beautiful place you have and we had a great time!! Thank you so much we hope to come back again!!
