Siesta Sunset Royale
Reviewed September 20, 2012

Paul and Nann were very responsive to my questions and emails. I spent hours calling places looking for a 1 night rental that would accommodate an early check in and late check out. Most places don't do 1 night rentals and didn't respond and this was a big driver for our decision (Paul's flexibility). I own a successful company and this was a beach reward for a few of our board members. We had 6 people and rented out a 2/2 and a 1/1 that Paul combined by opening the door between making it 1 large 3/3 condo. The accommodations to include the pool, hot tub, grill, beach accessories, etc were all awesome and very convenient for our stay. The place inside was very clean and had everything you would need for a stay. Paul went out of his way to give us a tour of the place and show us around when we got there. The place is about 50 yards from the beach and 50 yards from the main strip of restaurants and food. Both an easy walk. I would highly recommend this place for business, families and couples looking for a nice quiet getaway.

Your decision to use Siesta Sunset Royale for a beach stay and away from the business reward for key members of your company with spouses is a great way to remove the stress of business in a great team building atmosphere. Making the family part of the work team is a winning situation for forward thinking companies and we were happy that we had the availability for you to achieve your goal. Siesta Key does not have hotels and motels as other vacation destination do and we understand how difficult it can be to arrange a short stay with the necessary accommodations. Our adjoining apartments worked out well for your group and although we came up short with not having a small air pump to inflate the football, we can tell you this has been rectified and beach, soccer and footballs will no longer have to be deficient of air at Siesta Sunset Royale in the future. It is difficult for small vacation rental accommodations to be able to accommodate short stays, but our attitude is to try hard and we do. Although we do not take reservations outside of 30 days in advance for this type of short stay, we do pend these request once we have informed inquirers of our policy and attempt to accommodate once the reservation request is within the window where we will accept the reservation. We're suggesting and looking forward to a one-week boot camp at the beach which should really motivate key employees to go forward and move mountains. Thank you so much for your wonderful review of Siesta Sunset Royale and please return whenever you can.

A little pricey for what you get. Best feature was the location, but still a little walk to the beach. Will definitely return to Siesta Key, but will look for other accomodations. Noise could definitely be a problem as we could hear our neighbors even though they were not being loud. The storage for the beach chairs and umbrellas was a disaster, had to dig around to get what you wanted.

Yikes, 19 excellent reviews and then we stumbled. We know and understand that different people are going to have different experiences and memories. If there is any memory we do not want our guests to have is that they don't intend to return. We also know we're guilty as charged! One of the toughest assignments Nann and I have is our beach equipment room. We have a total of seven apartments and can sleep a total of 24 guests in our apartments. We pride ourselves on telling guests the only thing they need for the beach is "sunscreen". We supply the beach chairs, beach umbrellas, sand augers, chaise lounges, boogie boards, skim boards, children toys, carts to take everything to the beach and, of course, beach towels. We feel it is very important that our guests have a good beach experience and know our responsibility is to provide the beach equipment. Although the beach towels are easy, the beach equipment is a real challenge. Our beach equipment room is accessed from the outside of our building and is organized with regularity. We review the equipment for functionality and also ask guest to leave any malfunctioning or or overused items outside our office door so we can repair or replace them. Unfortunately beach chairs and umbrellas are not well made so much time is spent with repairing and replacing. Making sure we have enough equipment for everyone is easy and just a commitment to stay well supplied. Storage of this equipment, on the other hand, is a serious challenge and one that Nann and I have had many discussions. We do organize this room with regularity, but obviously not enough! When guests return from the beach it only takes one or two to start the creation of a potential avalanche of "beach stuff". We readily admit the condition of this room is our responsibility and we are working on making it much easier for our guests to know where everything goes.

Your concerns on sounds traveling within the building is also a legitimate concern and one that Nann and I recognized when we first purchased Siesta Sunset Royale. We have wired every apartment for stereo in all bedrooms and living areas. The speakers are installed and soon we will complete this audio system which will not only provide your music in your apartments, but also help in quieting your vacation rental with your favorite music playing though your apartment. This is coming soon, we promise.

Although we think we are very close to the beach, we can't move the beach or our apartments to make them closer. Nann and I would like to encourage you to consider renting our one-bedroom beachfront penthouse condo #408 at Sunset Royale that is right at Siesta Key Public Beach. We have no sound issue between condos, have a well organized beach closet within the condo for your exclusive use along with a custom installed Bose audio system to provide music everywhere including on the 200 square foot open balcony with unobstructed and panoramic views of Siesta Key Public Beach and the Gulf of Mexico. You are also now a VIP guest and beside not having to pay a deposit on future stays you will receive automatic discounts on your future stays. We now know you like and want to return to Siesta Key so check out our one-bedroom beachfront penthouse and give us a try, again.

My boyfriend and I headed down for what we thought would be a day trip to Siesta Key. As soon as we hit the beach we decided we would like to stay for the night. We stumbled upon the Sunset Royale and thank goodness we did! This hotel could not be better located, 100 yards from the beach and a short 5 minute walk to the heart of the Village. It is tucked into a neighborhood and has the homey feel of a bed-and-breakfast without the lack of privacy. The owners were very accommodating and a real pleasure to talk with. This hotel has a storage room filled with anything you could need for a day at the beach which is accessible by any guest at any time. My only complaint is that we couldn't stay longer. I will absolutely stay again and recommend this place for anyone looking for a cozy and fun time in Siesta.

Nann and I look forward to next your trip to Siesta Key and hopefully you will be able to spend more time. Your extemporaneous decision to spend the night while on Siesta Key worked well for both of us and now we know we have another rental guest we will see with some regularity. Living close to Siesta Key is a true advantage when making the trip to "paradise". Nann and I receive guests from all over the world who are awestruck by our incredible beach. Having our local Floridian neighbors visit our beach when they have so many very nice beaches that our easily accessible, we feel the pride of living on the best beach in America. Thank you for your wonderful review and stay over anytime!!

First, I would like to thank Paul and his lovely wife for being the most gracious, hospitable owners that I have ever encountered!! We took a family beach vacation that we will never forget. The condo was well kept, clean, spacious, and felt like home. The decor was perfectly beachy and the vibrant color scheme made it feel like paradise. We loved the pool and hot tub and also enjoyed the fabulous sunsets from the deck. The location is rIght across from the beach and a short walk to the village for shopping and nightly entertainment. I would like to also emphasize that the owners supply beach chairs, towels, sand toys and boogie boards that really made our trips to the beach a blast!!! I recommend his location to anyone who is looking for a great getaway with all the comforts of home. Thank you for an amazing experience.

Dear Amanda & Chad, we would like to thank you for choosing our Siesta Sunset Royale beach house for your beach vacation. Nann and I try very hard to make sure our guests are having a wonderful Siesta Key experience and this is not something we leave totally up to our guests. We very much like letting our guests know about special locations on Siesta Key and in Sarasota that will add to their vacation experience. Many of our guests are beach people who want sun, sand and hot weather along with a close place within walking distance for a cool beverage and tasty meal. All of the above are usually pretty easy to deliver. Where we sparkle is when we can send you to an out of the way location that will tantalize your epicurious taste, test your inquisitive mind or provide a unique experience you had not previously considered. Sarasota does very well in fulfilling these unique endeavors and Nann and I love to share these with our guests. We look forward to your future stays at Siesta Sunset Royale.

My husband and I have been visiting Siesta Key for years and we are return visitors to Siesta Sunset Royale. Our recent trip was delightful and our stay allowed us to see the best of Siesta Key!
The location of Siesta Sunset Royale cannot be beat: Close to the beach, within walking distance of the village, and convenient for all types of recreation. The accommodations are neat, clean, and modern. We had the opportunity to stay in the penthouse and found it to be a wonderful oasis!
Paul was friendly, attentive and welcoming. He listened to our needs as guests and worked hard to meet them.
We look forward to our next visit to Siesta Key!

When we purchased Siesta Sunset Royale we did not have the ability to also purchase or receive the names and information of previous guests from the former owner. Each time a former guest stays at Siesta Sunset Royale we are enthused as the returning guests see and experience some of the addition and changes that have been made to this wonderfully located Siesta Key beach house. Nann and I are appreciative of the very positive comments we receive. Though we have many more things to do and features to add to Siesta Sunset Royale, the very positive reviews keep us popped and pushing forward with the next thing to catch the eye and favor of our guests. Siesta Dreams had the unfortunate circumstance of experiencing an air conditioning problem that was an inconvenience that nobody plans on experiencing while on what is intended to be a relaxing vacation. Thankfully our penthouse studio suite allowed us to remove them from the inconvenience and provide a great location for the balance of their vacation. Thank you so much for your understanding and this very nice review.

Our entire family loved the accommodations at Siesta Sunset Royale. We rented an entire floor for 5 adults and 6 children, which worked very well. You have a great set-up within the units and around the entire property. Details make the difference. Having beach chairs, beach toys, beach carts, coolers, etc. available for use is a great benefit to your guests. The rooms were clean, the furniture and appliances were nice, and the pool and bar area was neatly kept. The location is excellent, very close to the beach and the Village. It's difficult to find businesses that operate in an old-school fashion, putting customer service and satisfaction at the forefront. Actually seeing the owners of a vacation rental nearly everyday is extremely rare in this industry. Your efforts are admirable and appreciated. We hope to return soon.

BJ, thank you so much for your wonderful review of Siesta Sunset Royale and your complimentary words about Nann and I on how we operate our vacation rentals. In case it was not obvious, we absolutely love what we do and must admit that we live vicariously in the lives of our vacationers while they stay at our properties. When our guest arrive we see the stress of traveling and getting away to go on vacation and the very much slowed down and easy going attitude that starts to come over them after a couple of days at the beach, in the pool and lounging in the Village of Siesta Key.
When we stumble in providing service or our building lets us down because of an issue, we go into hyper mode to make sure any inconvenience is quickly resolved. We use a number of tried and true professionals to keep our properties working on all cylinders and they also have our passion on providing excellent customer service. In addition we rely on our rental guests to give us information on items in need of maintenance and suggestions that would improve the experience of staying at our properties.
We are so glad you noticed our hands on approach in operating our business while at the same time giving our guests much free reign in enjoying their well deserved break from the daily routine that they escaped from........for a while.

My getaway was a last minute event and I was so excited to find Siesta Sunset Royale on TripAdvisor. The reviews, the photos, and speaking with owner Paul Parr assured me I had found the place to relax and enjoy the beautiful Siesta Key beach. Imagine my surprise to find the studio penthouse was more beautiful in person than in any photos! Beautifully decorated, incredible kitchen, wonderful audio/video setup, and an expansive deck with amazing views. Plus, everything you need is included, I truly did just bring sunscreen and clothes.

Paul and Nann Parr are so kind, helpful, and knowledgeable about Siesta Key. I felt like I was being welcomed into their home, not just renting space in the building.

This is my last full day at Siesta Sunset Royale and I really do not want to leave. Thank you Paul and Nann for a wonderful getaway.

Both Nann and I are very pleased you chose our Siesta Sunset Royale penthouse studio suite for your respite from the stifling summer heat in Cincinnati (and the rest of country) to enjoy our tropical weather on Siesta Key with our soothing island breeze to help temper our sunny skies and summer weather. We may have to advertise ourselves as a tropical location to come to and get away from the hot dry weather that is covering the country.
We love when a solo traveler ventures to Siesta Key and stays at our beach house with no vehicle and very lightly packed bags to lose themselves in our bohemian island life, enjoy our beaches, chill in our 86 degree pool and sample our restaurants and bistros in the tropical Village of Siesta Key and all just a few steps from your penthouse where you can watch the sunrise in the morning and set every evening from your private balconies. We look forward to your return and thank you so much for your kind words.
