“Little Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Just returned from a 2 week stay in The Lion suite at The Ringling and it was everything we hoped it would be. Clean, cute and comfortable, well equipped, close to the beach, restaurants and shops. The reception staff that we met were professional, friendly, knowledgeable and extremely helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. I know there will be ritzier places to stay on Siesta Key but they cost a small fortune. The Ringling is excellent value for money and cannot be topped in my opinion. I would have no hesitation in recommending this holiday rental and hope to return next year.

We took our children for a last weekend get a way before school started and had the best time. The unit we stayed in was clean and neat as well as everything they described online. The staff was friendly and pleasant to deal with. No hassle check in and check out. We will be going back again soon!

“It's the details that made this *wonderful*!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2012 for a stay in April 2012

Our initial meeting began with a sincere welcome from staff, along w/ a quick tour of property. Although it may appear small at first, the property pool proved the perfect size for our young kids. The room was nicer than appeared online, with modern furniture, appearing well cleaned. The little details, tho, is what help make the place fantastic- a little 'welcome' bucket full of goodies and tea, coffee w/ filters and all the 'fixins' near the coffee pot, matching bright beachy towels for use, tons of things to help yourself to for beach days and again, a friendly staff. Parking is right near the unit and walking in to town took minutes. Convenient, nice and very friendly place that we will book again!

“Great 3 Star property”

Fantastic location and terrific hosts. Hope and her crew go out of their way to ensure a pleasant stay. If you are ok with basic accommodations then you will not be disappointed. The furnishings are basic and somewhat tacky but the units area clean and functional. To their credit, the new owners are upgrading the facilities. You can't beat the location!

“Great Little Beach House.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2012 for a stay in December 2011
2
people found this review helpful

Stayed in unit 529 the first week of December. This place reminds me of a classic old beach house your family used to own. A little older, but in great shape, very clean and comfortable, with everything needed for a great weekend on this wonderful little island. The only thing missing is being beachfront, but it is right across the street, sorry no views. Unit 529 is a 2bd/2ba part of an elevated duplex beach house with parking underneath facing the road. We were never bothered by road noise during our stay. Unit has a full kitchen with all the needed goodies, and there are barbecues around the property for guests to use. There are two swimming pools, typical in ground residential type. We didn't try them, both looked nice, but the water was a little cold in Dec. for my tastes. Location of this property is really excellent, it is about five easy walk blocks to Siesta Village for shopping, dining, and a little nightlife. Likewise it's about the same distance the otherway to the main public beach, certainly one of the most amazing beaches in the country. There is a beach access right across the street as well. They have beach chairs and towels available to take with you to enjoy. Overall I highly recommend the Ringling Beach House.
