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.

About ShellsVilla.com

We started coming to Siesta Key in 2006 and we fell in love with the area. It's a family friendly area with something to do for everyone.

Owners: Julie & Orazio

ShellsVilla.com purchased this villa in 2008

Why ShellsVilla.com chose Siesta Key

We have young children and we like the convenience of staying right on the beach so that we don't have to cross any roads or worry about parking our car. In addition, we love having Siesta Village just down the street. We regularly frequent the restaurants, bars, and shops located in the village.

What makes this villa unique

Walk to everywhere! Stay right on the beach. If you want more info on our home we've created a website with more pictures and information at ShellsVilla . com

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!

The Shells Villa

  • 5 of 5

Our tenth year staying on the Key. Real estate has always been about location, location, location. We walked to village and beach never having to move our car for days. The house has everything you need to unwind and enjoy your stay. Spacious and well maintained with an owner who thinks of and responds to your needs. We have already booked for next year which will be our third year in row.

Spring Training Visit & Stay on Siesta Key

  • 5 of 5

Five of us stayed at the Shells Villa and attended Spring Training games. The house is located about 1 1/2 blocks from downtown Siesta Key. We loved the central location to shops, restaurants, and the beautiful beach. The house is spacious and tastefully decorated. The kitchen was well stocked for us to be able to cook breakfast each day. All of the beds were comfortable. We were so satisfied that we have booked a return trip for 2016.

Terrific experience!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our experience at the Shells! My husband and I stayed for two weeks, and it was our first experience renting a home. The Shells was a great choice.

The location was perfect - it is super close to the beautiful beach. Siesta Key has amazing white sand beach. The sand is so fine it looks like white flour, and there are pretty shells to be found. The villa is also very walkable to Siesta Key Village shops and restaurants.

The villa was very well appointed. Everything we thought we would want (and a couple things we didn't think of) were provided. I cooked quite a bit, and had no problem with utensils or cookware. Cable, DVD, WiFi, all worked great. There's a small elevator to all the floors, which we didn't really use except as a dumb waiter to carry heavy luggage upstairs. It's pet friendly, which allowed us to bring our little dog along.

Finally, the owner/property manager was really friendly and supportive. All questions were answered promptly, and communication was very clear.

Our only concern was that the incline on the driveway was such that we sometimes had a hard time keeping the car from scraping on the bottom. Nothing insurmountable though.

We would absolutely recommend the Shells and will definitely be back!

The Villa is wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay at the Villa but won't be our last. Everything that could make our vacation comfortable was at our disposal. We could relax at home, take a short walk to the beach or walk the other direction and have a night out in the village. We couldn't have asked for a better location. The owners and maintenance company couldn't have been nicer or more easy to deal with. I would have to give our vacation a high A+ from the service, to the location. We loved having a grill to make home made meals and the beach accessories helped make our trip even better! (We even used the wagon and had a Margarita on the beach) :) It was evident that the owners put a lot of thought into providing every thing we needed to enjoy our time. We never wanted for anything except more time to stay!

We had a great time and loved the shells villa. Plenty of room with very comfortable beds. We used the beach chairs and the provided wagon. A trip to remember :)
