Turtles Nest - A Slice of Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been holidaying in Siesta Key, Sarasota area for ten years and this is by far the best accommodation we have ever stayed in. The pictures of the villa do not do it justice. It is spotlessly clean and located in an upscale neighbourhood, close to the Legacy Trail and a short drive to Nokomis or Siesta Key beaches. The villa is equipped with everything you would need. We enjoyed the pool area which overlooks a lake and conservation area and benefits from all day sun.

We enjoyed our stay at Turtles Nest so much that we will be returning next May for another vacation.

I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a delightful vacation.

The owner Tony is very easy to deal with and nothing is too much trouble for him.

Excellent Vacation Property

  • 5 of 5

My family of three enjoyed a vacation at the house, during the last two weeks of July 2016.

The pictures do not do the house justice, we found the property to be clean spacious and well kept.

The estate/neighbourhood was great, you are not overlooked at the rear elevation, which enjoys the sun all day.

We found ourselves relaxing more than we thought by the pool.

The house is well stocked with beach chairs, cool boxes and bikes. The owners are massively helpful and respond to questions very quickly.

We were first time visitors to the Sarasota area, we found the location of the house to be excellent.

There really is something for everybody, Walmart and Target close by, Westfield mall around ten minutes away, with a Costco, which allowed us entry on our English card. Outlet mall and more upmarket University town centre mall around a 20 to 30 minute drive, great beaches, bars and restaurants. The legacy walking/biking trail, is an added bonus to those who feel active.(can be accessed within five minutes from your doorstep.)

Cannot recommend enough!

We are looked at going back next year.

Owner's Response: Great to hear that Turtles Nest exceeded your expectations and that we have yet another family who want to stay again (and for longer next time!). As our guests are finding out, the property is in a quiet residential leafy backwater yet only a 10/15 minute drive to beautiful beaches and waterways, bars/restaurants, supermarkets, shopping malls, movie theaters and Costco!

Wonderful Property

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six stayed at Turtles Nest and we really loved it - it was clean, spacious and the screened pool /patio area was fantastic with a delightful, peaceful outlook onto the lake. The house is suitable for all ages and we enjoyed the house so much that we often stayed home all day.

The house was immaculate and is thoughtfully furnished with everything you need for your holiday. You really do only need to bring yourselves and your clothes. The kitchen cupboards were well stocked with basic essentials, and so were the bathrooms (e.g. soap, shampoo etc.).

Everything you need for outdoor activities was also provided e.g. beach chairs, umbrellas, bikes etc.

The location is great for access to the beach (around 10 minutes drive to Nokomis), but there are miles of beach along the coast to explore. Siesta Key beach is also very close. The sub division is immaculate so it’s a pleasure to return home.

The owners have been super helpful throughout the whole process.

I cannot recommend this house enough.

Thank You For an Absolutely Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rent in this area often to spend time with family and still have our own privacy. This house is perfect. It gave us the ability to invite them over for a family dinner and have a relaxing day by the pool. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful; the house is immaculate and has everything you need including soap, shampoos, and paper products if you are too tired to hit the store right away after a long day of travel. The pool and seating area out side is extremity comfortable and clean. The owners were quick to respond and very accommodating throughout the booking process. We like it so much, I do believe we will become regular renters if they'll have us! As for the location the area sells itself, tons to do close by and more within a 3 hour drive, just google it! The owners have provided you with all you need to have a great day staying home; hitting the beach; or riding the previous days Margarita calories away on a morning bike ride!

Thank you!

Quite possibly our best family holiday ever

  • 5 of 5

We live in Scotland and were looking to escape to the Sunshine in the midst of winter with a teenage son and daughter.

Turtles Nest looked lovely in the photos and we were definitely not disappointed when we arrived.

The owners were friendly and helpful throughout the whole booking process and prompt to answer a few questions we had.

When we arrived the holiday home was immaculately clean and had absolutely everything we needed.

In fact, we loved being in the house so much with its beautiful pool and pond setting that we had to force ourselves to go out and do some exploring and beach visits.

We had such a wonderful time and it goes down as one of our best holidays ever.

Amazing vacation in an exceptional home

  • 5 of 5

Having been to Orlando many times, we were ready to experience a different Florida.

We'd heard great things about the Sarasota/Siesta Key area and we weren't disappointed, the icing on the cake being to vacation in such a wonderful vacation home.

Turtles Nest is very much a home from home, so you really do only need to pack your shorts and tee shirt, then start enjoying yourself.

The property is on an established street and the pool deck overlooking the pond was where we spent much of our time, be it breakfast or a cocktail watching the amazing sunset sky.

Forget Orlando, we're coming back to Turtles Nest again next year!

Owner's Response: So glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay in Turtles Nest and look forward to your return later this year. As you discovered, Sarasota County is such a lovely part of the world with it's amazing beaches, watersports, boating, golf, tennis, etc, etc. Not just sunshine but culture and excellent dining choices too - pleased we were able to share our little bit of paradise!
