I am going to be very honest.
First the positive things,
Access to the beach was great and the beach was excellent,the pool was also great.
The beds were comfortable and washrooms were good as well.Location was good as far as proximity to the shopping and restaurants.
The not so great things.
The hand rail from lower to upper was filthy.The windows were filthy we had to wash them to view the out side.the dish washer and oven were very stained.Some of the dishes were still dirty in the cupboards.The mop,broom and scrub brush were filthy.The couch and love seat should be replaced,they are stained we tried to turn them over and the other side was no better ,the mats were dirty,we rolled the one in the hall up and stared it in the closet.On the Friday before we left we cleaned all day.I would recommend changing the mats and couch and love seat cushions.Deffinately more attention to detail is required.
Booked last minute (4 days before arrival). Everything was organized & went smoothly. Arrived at midnight, but keys were waiting for us as promised. Spacious condo with very comfy couches! Everything worked well (internet, TVs, AC, water, lights, etc.) It's off season, so beach was essentially empty, but absolutely beautiful. Enjoyed the heated pool once the weather turned too cold to swim in the gulf. Everything you need for a great beach vacation (except beach towels, have to bring them from home).
Very clean and surprisingly quite roomy. Both bedrooms nice size. Private beach. Short walk to beautiful beach. Nicely decorated. Very well maintained grounds. Everything you could need supplied. Would stay again.
Great place to stay. The condo is right on the beach and close to several restaurants and a grocery store. The condo was very well kept and well stocked for dining in. We would definitely come back.
We had a fabulous stay at this condo. We arrived to a very clean, brightly decorated two-story condo, with ample space for 4 working Moms on our annual Girls' Weekend getaway.
It was fully stocked with cookware, glassware, sheets and large closet/storage space. We were able to cook our own meals, if we so choose. Also, each patio has a table with umbrellas and four chairs, so it was nice and easy to just hang outside in the breeze.
The beautiful beaches of Siesta Key were, literally, about 100 steps away, so if you love the beach, this IS THE PLACE TO BE. Also note that the beach area that we had access to was a private beach, so it was not too crowded; it basically had families and couples who were staying, like us, at the beachside resorts.
Downtown Siesta Key was a quick 5 minute drive away, with lots of eclectic shops, restaurants and more. There was a Walgreens about 5 minutes the other way, which we seemed to frequent, for whatever reason, at least once per day (they MUST make a killing there!).
The only downside was that I can say is that:
1. I wish there were more towels provided in the unit
2. The shower door in the master bathroom came off the track when I was getting in on Saturday. You could see where it had been "jimmied/repaired" previously and someone could have SERIOUSLY been hurt by it, since it was heavy. Fortunately, I had a similar shower door in a previous apartment that I had lived in, so I knew what was wrong. Unfortunately, I couldn't fix it due to there being no tools in the unit. I called the office, but never heard back, but it was Saturday, so that could be why.
All in all, it was a positive experienced and we'd all likely rent there again; only next time with the hubbies and kids.
We stayed for 2 weeks over Easter this year and enjoyed it very much. The big attraction was being able to walk to the beach in just a couple of minutes. There were plenty of chairs for everyone. Watching sunsets on the beach is glorious. A short walk to the other end of the property had a very nice pool that was good and warm and immaculate.
There is a free trolley that passes by about every 20 minutes that takes you to other beaches and sites at both end of the Key. A great addition indeed. Thank you for sharing your lovely home away from home.
Already planning next year.
All the amenities of home.
Great electronics even a wifi printer.
Cute ensuite bath with shower in Master BR.
