Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Siesta Key - The Shells Villa

Townhome, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

As you enter the Shells Villa for the first time you know you are not in a typical vacation home. From the Spanish tile to the beautiful rugs and antique furnishings, you truly feel like a special guest.

Leave your car behind, sheltered in your private two plus car garage. Walk out the door and down the private footpath. In seconds you are on one of the most beautiful white powder sand beaches in the world. No streets to cross, no driving, and no looking for a parking place.

Walk half a block to restaurants and shopping at the Village on Siesta Key. Enjoy over 2000 square feet of gracious living in Spanish Mediterranean style villa.

What makes us different than other homes you may be considering:

• The Beach - The home is located on the ocean side of Beach Rd., so you just walk out your door and through our private access path. It’s literally 230 feet to Siesta Key Beach. No busy roads to cross and no need to find parking.

• Seconds to Siesta Key Village – The home is located right next to Siesta Key Village. You are a one block walk away from restaurants, bars, boutiques, and ice cream shops.

• Large Home – The home has just over 2,000 square feet on the top two levels and includes 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, lanai, and in-unit laundry. We also have a 1,000 square foot ground level that has the main entrance foyer and 2.5 car garage. It comfortably sleeps 8-10 people.

• Privacy & Security – The home is part of a development of four homes. It has its own gated driveway, garage, and entrance. This is not a high rise or large vacation rental development. When you stay at The Shells Villa you feel like you are in a home, not an apartment or hotel room.

• Amenities & Décor – The villa is elegantly appointed to make you feel at home. It has luxury finishes such as three flat screen TVs, surround sound audio, beautiful art work, fireplace, oriental rugs, and comfortable furniture. Free cable, Internet (wireless or wired), phone, beach toys/chairs, and gas grill are also included.

• Peace of Mind – Don’t leave anything to chance. The Shells Villa is locally managed and the office is located within walking distance of the home, so if you run into any issues you know we will be there to help.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your property was very nice. We have stayed at VRBO places a number of times before and yours was by far the nicest. The decor was beautiful and also very comfortable. I'm usually quite picky, and found your place to be without any problems!

Fantastic Family Spring Break!

  • 5 out of 5
We rented the Shells Villa in March of 2011 and had a wonderful time. This is our second time we have rented the Villa. We have two teenage girls. There was plenty of place for them to have their privacy, but for all of us to be together. Everything you need in the kitchen. Great layout in the living room. Close enough for everyone to walk to town. The paths are a quick walk to the beautiful beach. This section of the beach was never crowded. Shells Villa is perfect. We will be back in 2012.

Even nicer than last year

  • 5 out of 5
I have stayed at this property for the last few years due to the great location, one block from the resturants, and great beach outside. The owner has clearly been keeping the property up with new beds, furniture and it even looks freshly painted. Extremely clean and tremdously enjoyable. I highly recommend this propery. I look forward to this trip and it is becoming a family favorite and I will continue to back to this location due to its terrific amenities, location and comfort.

Great Rental in Siesta Key

  • 5 out of 5
We recently stayed here having heard good things about Siesta Key and how close we were to the beach. We were not disappointed! This property has great beach access and is a short walk away from all kinds of restaurants, bars and shops. You literally wouldn't have to drive the entire trip if you didn't want to! The property is great and provided a lot of room for everyone. It was extremely clean and well maintained. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a getaway or even a longer term stay!

Excellent stay at Shells Villa

  • 5 out of 5
7 of us (2 families consisting of 4 adults and 3 kids under the age of 6) stayed at the Shells Villa for 4 nights in November 2014. We had an excellent stay and would recommend this rental to anyone! Location is perfect -- you are close to the Village area and close to the beach. The beach is not as busy as the public beach to the south, so we never had any trouble finding a good place to set up for the day. The house is in great condition and we had everything we needed. The kitchen is well equipped. It was easy to get the keys from the management company, even when arriving on a Saturday evening. The kids loved the bunk beds. Overall, we had an excellent time and would recommend this location to anyone!
PS - the lobster bisque and margaritas at The Hub Grill were excellent!

Family Friendly, AWESOME BEACH, Feels like home.

  • 5 out of 5
A friend of ours recomended the Shells Villa in Siesta Key. They told us it was great, but we were blown away. What a great value and the owners do a great job.....you feel like you are staying in their home, not some impersonal rental. The beach is right out the back door, 3 blocks to the main strip of food, bars, live music...what more could you ask for. We're booking again for next year as we speak. These homes are insane! Location, Location Location!!!!

"We could get used to this! What a great BEACH!!!

"We could get used to this! What a great BEACH!!!
  • 5 out of 5
We've stayed at a lot of rental places in Florida and The Shells Villa is BY FAR the best place we've found. This is our 3rd year in a row staying at this property and we LOVE it! Not only is the property super close to the best beach in Florida...it very well appointed, has super duper air conditioning (important!) and even an elevator to lug heavy luggage up to the 2nd and 3rd floor. We have 3 year old twins and thought we'd be in for trouble, but the owners were so thoughtful and helped us find safety gate and step stool rentals....even a babysitter service so we could have a date night! The owners have thought of everything and the house is beautiful, very clean, awesome tv and stereo systems throughout, and a great screened in balcony....we leave tomorrow and headed back to Chicago snow :(. We'll be back again for sure. As a bonus, we found some of the most delicious French fare at Bonjur Cafe.....and Gabbiano's recent facelift and new management has turned it into a 10 out of 10!
