#Fabulous Vacation!!! Loved It :D

July 5, 2014

Great Vacation! Wonderful Accommodations. The Villa was very neat and clean with all the amenities of home. Thank You for letting us enjoy it. One if the Best Vacations Ever! I know I've been to Aruba, Punta Cana, Bahamas, Jamaica and I have to say the staff and our villa really deserves 5 star!! The Staff at Casa Blanca are Fabulous. Elizabeth, Audrey and Robbie in the front office very helpful above and beyond. Thanks ladies!!! Greg Maintance Supervisor thanks for all your help and for the use of the Grill. Eddie thanks for unlocking the door when we forgot the keys, when we took the kids Parasailing. The Beach what can I say other than it really is #1. The sand pure white quartz never gets hot and the ocean water is clear and warm. Enjoyed early morning walks on the beach. We have quite the collection of seashells. The Restaurants are Great too. If you like Mexican. (The Hub) has the best Burritos. (The Old Salty Dog) makes a hell of Hotdog! (The Broken Egg) and (The Village Restaurant and Grill) OMG the best Sweet Potato Pancakes & Breakfast burritos (Solorzano's) Has the best Pizza!! (Abel's Ice Cream) Yummy!! Again Great Place to Stay! Thank You I will Certainly Recommend it!!

We recently returned from our holiday at the casa blanca Bungalows siesta keys, what can I say fantastic, brilliant Wonderful, none of these do it justice ,a little bit of paradise Definitely, villa was home from home very clean, modern, lovely. The private beach which was about 4/5 minutes walk was Absolutely beautiful not crowded at all and the sand, so fine and white. Pool and pool area great - just like getting into A warm bath!!! Staff incredibly friendly especially Robbie and Audrey in the office and Eddie the maintainence man who's living the dream. If you want to go fishing we hired a boat with a captain called Kevin ( via cb's) on stickney point bridge he took us to little spots that he knows - on the way we had dolphins ride along side us - a manatee came to say hello as well as 2 rays absolutely wonderful I didn't care if I caught fish after that - I did though it was a wonderful trip . My only complaint would be that I couldn't stay longer And I cannot wait for my return.

Best Beach Vacation Ever!

July 1, 2013

My husband and I took our children to Siesta Key and stayed in the Lairds Villa B8. The place was wonderful, beds super comfortable and clean. We were steps away from the beach and pool. It was my first trips to the beach where I was able to actually relax. The ocean is great with minimal waves, it is not overly commercialized so we were able to walk around and enjoy the scenery without the crowds. We had a manatee swim by us twice while we were in the ocean. I would recommend this spot to anyone of any age. .

marty laird

Owner's reply:

Hi Wendy glad you had such a grea time swimming with the manatees in the gulf of Mexico. Not many people have that experience but will now with your review.

Hope you can make it back next year.

Kind Regards,

Marty and Linda Laird B-8

Great time

June 18, 2013

We have enjoyed owner offered places several times but will have to say this was the best. Great beach access, even though my wife uses a cane the few steps were okay and the sand good to walk on. We had been in Pensacola on the beach for Thanksgiving and it doesn't hold a candle to this for white sand or for comfort. We loved the sunsets: beautiful is the least we can say. The villa is very comfy and very well decorated. The on-site staff quite friendly and helpful to make the stay one of the best ever. We spent our 54th anniversary there and loved every minute, expecting to be back as soon as possible.

Comfortable and relaxing

May 20, 2013

It is actually a two bedroom villa with three beds. It's decorated nicely, and the king size bed is quite nice. It would have been good to have another end table next to the bed and a second remote since there is only one for controlling two televisions. But these are suggestions and quite frankly, I'd love to spend another week there. It felt like a second home to me. The beach is about a five minute walk from the house and all the houses are within arms reach of each other on the sides but the area was quiet and one could quickly forget that. The amenities mention a gas grill which isn't quite true. It's a charcoal burning one. Again, no big deal, simply a heads up to buy some while at the grocery store, and matches of course. Again, I enjoyed the villa and if I can manage it again soon, I'll be renting again.

marty laird

Owner's reply:

Good morning Randell

We are happy you enjoyed your week at our lovely Villa and hope to have you come and stay with us again. Two weeks is always better to really enjoy all that Siesta Key and Sarasota area have to offer. We are changing the grill to gas for our guest on our next trip.

Villa B8

April 23, 2013

Just returned from staying in Martin Laird's Villa B8 on Siesta Key. My wife, daughter and I had a wonderful time. The place is fresh and just like brand new. The private beach there is amazing and non crowded(unlike the public beach we usually use when in that area on Siesta Key). The pool and rec room were excellent. It was great to wake up in mourning walk a few steps to beach without having to drive in traffic which is the norm on Siesta Key if staying somewhere else. We could walk beach at sunrise looking for sand dollars, have breakfast, go back to beach, come in for lunch, go back to beach or pool and finish the evening watching sunset on the beach, all without wasting a minute in traffic to do it. We stayed 4 full days at the villa and I believe we had much more vacation time spent on the beach relaxing this year than previous years where we staying somewhere else off sight and wasting tons of time in traffic. We wouldn't want to stay anywhere else on Siesta Key after staying at Martin's Villa, we got spoiled. Thank you!!!!!

Owner's reply:

We had a wonderful week over the Thanksgiving holiday at the Lairds villa. The villa was everything we expected.....neat, clean, well equipped and comfortable. I can wait for our next year trip. The beach was beautiful with snow white sand and saw several dolphins while in the water too! Enjoyed my walks on the beach as well. Couldn't go wrong renting the villa. Thanks again.

Best Location Ever!

January 15, 2012

What a perfect villa, location and beach! Very spacious and well-furnished unit. The management was very welcoming and helpful. Although every foot of Crescent Beach on Siesta Key is perfect, the beachfront on this property is deep, wide and less crowded than neighboring properties. Enough space to accommodate active families AND couples just looking for a relaxing time in the sun. If you're up to walking, Siesta Village is just a 2-mile walk. Biking/walking the beach is easy and inviting. We're ready to come back!

Perfect Family Vacation Spot

June 16, 2009

We loved staying at Casa Blanca. Our Villa (B8) was perfect for us. It was furnished with everything we would need including beach items. We will definitely be returning next summer. The sunsets were amazing, the rooms were comfortable, the villa was very clean and the beach was great, not crowded like down at the Public Beach. We brought our 3 month old and were quite comfortable staying there with him, no inconveniences at all. We will be recommending Casa Blanca to all our friends!

Owner Supplied Testimonials

Dear Martin and Linda,
We are now back in the UK after a wonderful trip to Florida. It was nice of you to phone the villa and check all was OK.
Thank you for allowing us to use your villa, it was great and we felt really comfortable there, you are lucky to own such a nice place, I bet you try and get there as often as possible. Before we arrived in Florida I saw some pictures about the units at Casa Blanca and I really did wonder quite what we would find. But we struck lucky as it seems as as if your villa is one of the best, I think the reports may have been about the units that face the beach.
Despite a few cooler days for us it was just fine, we enjoyed walking on the beach and searching for shells, I did find a sand dollar but it got broken on the flight home - so will need to return and try again.
Have you taken your family to Caspersen beach at Venice? we went there to collect fossilised sharks teeth and found plenty, you need a keen eye!!!
Back to work tomorrow and then hopefully planning another trip.

Best Wishes Kate and Geoff

Dear Linda and Marty

We want to thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful Villa at the Casa Blanca. My husband and I have traveled thru most of Florida and stayed in many condos and Villas. Your Villa is probably the most well appointed of all with many of your comfortable and decorative touches throughout your lovely Villa. Loved walking the beach every day and the restaurants - our favorite was Oyster Club in Siesta Key Village! We'll definitely be back next year!
Donna and Norm Magnanti

Dear Linda and Marty- Thank you for introducing us to Siesta Key and your lovely Villa. Your unit had everthing we would ever need and more.
