Area Info
Siesta Key:

Is an eight-mile-long barrier island about 50 miles south of Tampa off the west coast of Florida known for its incredible beaches (award winning whitest sand ) and beautiful weather. Siesta Key is home to more than full time and part time residents as well as a wide array of tropical trees, plants, and birds. While all the conveniences of modern life are easily accessible, Siesta Key is still remote enough feel like old Florida. The roads that wind through Siesta Village and the beaches are lined with tropical flowering plants and mature trees. Beach walkers and joggers are accompanied at the water's edge by a variety of birds including sandpipers, gulls, heron, and egret, and often dolphins can be seen playing and feeding just offshore. The expansive beaches are lined with palm trees and tropical plants with lush, green foliage. Siesta Key is a tropical paradise, beautiful year-round.

Siesta Key Community:

Only a limited number of resorts and hotels are located on Siesta Key, so vacationers usually stay in condos and private homes and cottages. Because they live among the residents during their stay, visitors easily become part of the community and are welcomed into the Siesta Key lifestyle. Vacationers quickly relax into the casual, friendly atmosphere and soon feel right at home wherever they go on Siesta Key. Siesta Key Village is an area near the north end of the key where vacationers and residents gather for dancing, dining, shopping, and fun. Each evening offers something exciting and entertaining. There are other shops and restaurants - something for any taste or mood - located all across the key. French, Italian, American, and Oriental restaurants offer delicious cuisine to suit even the most discerning tastes. Crab, lobster, raw oysters, blackened fish and unique local dishes are specialties at many of the waterfront and casual seafood restaurants on Siesta Key. For a little more excitement, try a nightclub with live music, and don't miss the popular Sunday night Siesta Beach drum circle where musicians and dancers are joined by the public in a weekly celebration. Water sports are also a big part of life on Siesta Key, with parasailing, kayaking, boat rentals, guided tours, and fishing available. The city of Sarasota, which is connected to Siesta Key by two bridges, also offers a diverse mix of cultural, natural, scientific, and family fun attractions.

Needs lots of TLC, owner nonresponsive

June 27, 2013

The home would/could be very nice if it were properly maintained. You can tell immediately it needs lots of TLC. The location is ok but not a quick easy walk to the beach with children and all of your beach gear. Here are the issues we faced: -Master bedroom and main bathroom door locks don't work but APPEAR to work so you have a false sense of confidence that the door IS locked when in fact it is NOT. Many people were walked in on until we figured this out. -The pool is grimy and gross and appears to have no chlorination system functioning. -The kitchen has nowhere near enough cooking utensils to make a meal. I believe there were a few cereal bowls but no mixing bowls, food storage bowls for leftovers. There are exactly 4 spoons in the house and 3 of those are serving spoons. -There are just a few beach towels which is not nearly enough for a property that sleeps 12. -We saw plenty of bugs in the ktichen, some of which were what appeared to be very large cockroaches. One was in the dishwasher. And finally, the landlord is nonresponsive to issues. Save your money and stay somewhere else in Siesta Key!

DO NOT RENT FROM THIS OWNER!!!!

June 4, 2013

This owner has yet to refund my $500 deposit for my reservation that I had for November 2013 for his other home at 316 Beach Road. HE cancelled the reservation. He no longer responds to voicemail or email. DO NOT RENT FROM HIM!!!

Nice House

April 9, 2013

This was a very nice rental property. Not many complaints. Bill the owner is easy to reach and took care of any issues that came up. We would've liked a few more things in the kitchen for cooking and storing food. One more love seat or chair would be great for the living room, as we were short for seating when everyone was there. The location is great to the beach and village. We had 11 in our group and had plenty of room. We hated to live. We would rent this property again!!!!

March 30, 2013

The house was nice but there were several things that needed a little sprucing up like washer spin cycle not in sink, beds were not comfortable, several over head lights out, ceiling fans in two bedrooms don't work, fliter for air conditioning full with lint, towel bar in lower bathroom not secured and, yard had dog waste not cleaned up. Owner did not respond quickly and did not meet client for walk through of resident prior to acceptance of resident.

Surprise Birthday Party

March 28, 2013

We had a wonderful time at this house. The big ceilings and rooms give you lots space, not to mention outside. It was a very short walk to the beautiful white sandy beach. We rented 2 kayaks and kept them on the deck by the canal. Nice a quite canals for rowing. We gave my Dad a surpirise party and there was plenty of room for everyone. It was a good time.

Bad experience

March 11, 2013

We reserved this home from the owner in March of 2012 for the week of Feb 23 2013. For four couples. The owner accepted my security downpayment in March of 2012 for $500/to reserve and confrimed our dates for arrival. He then accepted our payment for the week in December as per our contract. 10 days before our arrival the owner emailed me and told me he overbooked us w/another group and that we couldn't stay at the house. He also claimed he would help find another place equivilent to his home on the canal, w/a boat launch. We rent on the canal because we rent a boat for the week, and that is why we like to stay at the canal homes. He never found a house to fit 4 couples and also could not find a home on the canals 10 days before our arrival. I found a place and informed him it would be 400 more for us to stay and we couldn't go in until a day after our arrival. He assured me that he would help pay the difference in a hotel, and the new home I had found. He never returned our calls! after I found a home for my group. We were were so upset by the way he treated us and also tried to understand how this person took our down payment,and another groups payment at the same time and didn't realize he collected too much money? the other group paid him for three weeks? not just two..he didn't figure this out until 10 days before we were to show up? also he emailed me but never called me to inform me of this mistake. This is not a trustworthy rental property. We never recouped our monies even though he promised he would reimuburse us as this was his mistake. He never found a home that would accomodate our group. Essentially left us w/out a place to stay for a week 10 days before our vacation. I was lucky to find a place on my own called the Castle. Which I highly reccommend to anyone. Stay Clear of this property and its owner!

Great location!

November 29, 2012

Our stay at Siesa Key was very nice! This home is very spacious and is close to the beach and the village. We loved the idea that the owner was local and would be readily available if any problems or questions arose. He was very accommodating to our needs and special requests. We enjoyed the hot tub and the back yard area. The neighborhood was very quiet and peaceful, which made us feel very secure. There was plenty of parking area. Since we go to Siesat Key every year, this is by far the nicest home we've rented. We will definately be renting this home again.!

BEST vacation ever!

October 10, 2012

My husband and I spent a week here. We absolutely loved this house and the location of it makes it perfect! Bill, the owner was super nice and even allowed us to check in early. The house had everything we needed. We could walk to the beach and to Siesta Village. We did take advantage of the Free Taxi Service after spending the evening at the Daqueri Deck. The pool was lovely, and I really enjoyed having my morning coffee on the balcony outside the bedroom watching tons of wildlife along the canal. the only bad thing I can say is that we had to leave :( We will definately rent this house again.

I would rent this house again without hesitation and would certainly recommend it.

The place was more than we expected, spacious and clean. We had some minor issues but the owner was always available for assistance and that did not stop us from enjoying this wonderful place. We enjoyed every minute of our stay and already planning on our next summer vacation back here.

Loved the place, the pool is awesome. It is cool during the day and is protected from bugs at night. The walk to the beach is quite long, in August it is very tough to walk that far in the sun. I would like to see the outdoor kitchen finished out.

Vacation of a lifetime!

July 11, 2012

Pulling up to 202 island circle was only the beginning of our wonderful stay the the beautiful siesta key beach! The house was very lovely and well maintained we could've stood a couple more towels but other than that had everything we needed. The house was clean ! The owner bill was very kind and helped us with any questions that we had! The pool is larger than viewed in picture and very clean also! I would defiantly stay here again my family and I felt like we where right at home!

Beach house

June 26, 2012

We arrived at this home on sat June 16 the house is beautifully decorated and had everything you could want in a vacation rental there were a few problems but contacted owner and everything was taken care of immediately. The kitchen was nice and big could use a few newer skillets and spatula s but other than that very nice the walk to the beach was about 10 minutes but not a bad walk at all the owner got us a wagon to haul things down to the beach there are beach towels and beach canopy in the garage which was nice I didn't have to pack I would definitely rent from bill again if he will have us overall I think anyone who rents this home will be very pleased

May Family Vacation

June 5, 2012

Once we entered the house, we knew we were at the right place. Everything you needed was in the house and anything you would need to purchase was within walking distance. Even though we had a couple of overcast days, we always could find plenty to do with the pool, the hot tub, the pool table and the dock in the back yard that is on the canal. We had a little bit of technical difficulty with the hot tub, but the owner was more than willing to supervise the repair work. One night we had eight adults staying there and we were never in each others way. My only complaint was that I had to leave. We will definitely give this place another try!

Great Vacation

April 5, 2012

This home is as advertised, spacious and roomy. The loft over the garage is not usable so don't count on that. The owner was very friendly and helped out with a pool issue we had but was corrected early on. The location is ideal with 10 minute walk to the beach and about 15-20 into the village. The place was clean and generally well appointed however the number of bowls and pots for cooking leave a bit to be desired. I would recommend this place to a friend.

Liked the area.....

December 31, 2011

The home was a nice style with lots of room for my family of five. We enjoyed the use of the bikes once we put air in the tires of one bike. We enjoyed having the cat around(has been with the house for a long time) and gave the cat a Christmas treat of canned food. We did have a lot of problems with the home. The toilet was plugged upon arrival, we fixed that, the hot tub did not work the whole time we were there(although the owner did have the pool guy come over a few times), the kitchen drain backed up when we put the dishwasher on, the dryer did not work well, the door didn't lock on the main bathroom. We did leave early because of the problems and we were worried about the next thing that might break. I think with a little TLC, this would be a fabulous house because of location. Thank you for letting us enjoy the house while we did.

Siesta Key Canal Front Home

December 11, 2011

This is the perfect way to spend a week's vacation! The gorgeous home is clean, welcoming, and has all the comforts anyone could want. We enjoyed playing pool, swimming, fishing off the dock, bbqing, going to the beautiful beach, and golfing, as well, as being greeted by the Sweet Ole Cat, who has adopted the property, as we returned home from our daily activities. It was a tad too windy for boating so we hope to include that next time & we also plan to bring friends to share the great times!
