Unique complex with several 1,2&3 bedroom units that are well cared for, and within a very short walk to the Caribbean-blue waters of Siesta Key beach. Literally 2 minutes gets you toes in the most beautiful, cool, white sand anywhere. Island Suite is comfortable w/2 large bedrooms--1 King (yea!) and 1 Queen, as well as a Queen in the sleeping...

My family (4 plus a baby) stayed at the island suite over Thanksgiving. We were pleased with the location, and the overall amenities. Virginia (and her assistant) was very pleasant to work with, as demonstrated by her responsiveness and her eagerness to ensure her guests a quality experience. The only complaint I have is the noise. We could hear continuous... More

Stayed here again with some friends for some relaxing beach and pool time. We love it here! Very quiet, and steps from the beach. Condo is very well equipped, and there was even some beach and pool toys this year which was great! Our AC acted up, and it was fixed in a timely manner thankfully! We just went to... More

Stayed here recently with my family and a great experience. It was very homey and clean. The location was perfect because it was right across the street from the beach, and close to the town. There was a pool which was a plus. They also provided beach items (chairs, umbrellas, beach balls, ect) Really enjoyed my stay. Will be returning... More

Overall, we had a positive experience at Gumbo Limbo in Siesta Key. We rented the Island Suite which has two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Our suite was on the ground floor and the renters above us had small children who ran incessantly. The noise from their footsteps was significant. I talked with their father and he was understanding and he... More
