This home has its own new boat dock on the Grand Canal directly across the street. I consider this a waterfront view of the Grand Canal directly across the street from the home. I supply umbrellas and beach chairs to take to the beach. There is also a rolling ice chest. A little more information on the television service. I have Frontier Fios which includes high definition tv, 50/50 wired or wireless internet and unlimited long distance.

Wonderful house in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This house was everything it stated it was, we were not disappointed! Clean, well-maintained, good-size bedrooms, sunny lanai with a large backyard on a quiet street. Although it might look small on the outside it is a spacious 2-bedroom on the inside! Location is perfect, a short walk to the village and beach. Added bonus a dock across the street to enjoy while watching the fish jump! The owner Jim is very helpful and responsive--a delight! Total relaxation and did not have to worry about anything! Highly recommend!

I loved staying here. The house was clean and nice and close to the village.

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for my family. We didn't know when we booked how booming this area was during our visit time. We were a short walk from the beach and restaurants and shopping, which meant no driving or parking was required. It was quiet, but still close to the fun. We were able to cook with the full kitchen and grill. We could hang out in the shade, or dangle our feet off the dock across the road while fishing, something my kids loved. This vacation was simply amazing. Jim, our host was so nice and helpful and just great to talk to.

Terrific Thanksgiving Week at Island Breeze and Siesta Key!!

  • 5 of 5

My Wife and I spent a fantastic week at Island Breeze, Siesta Key and everything that the Sarasota area had to offer. This property was fantastic on quite a few levels. We were immediately impressed with the "Beachy feel" of the place upon driving up and then entering the property. Very convenient for either a walk or a bike ride into town. The same with going over to the beach, which we now know why it is called the USA's #1 beach. Fantastic beach for either a morning walk or a bike ride. Plenty of people out and about every day and overall, the people of the area were very friendly. We had the opportunity to meet Jim and what a really good guy he is. Very accommodating and he wants to be certain that you are enjoying yourself at his property. We have no complaints, at all. We found the kitchen to have everything that we could possibly need for meals, as well as grilling outside. While on our trip, we fished, walked the beach, rode bikes all over town, brewery hopped and took nice drives to Venice, as well as up to Longboat Key, Bradenton and Anna Maria Island. We realized that we need much more than a week to fully enjoy all that the area has to offer. We absolutely loved the house, the area and the enormous amount of activities that are within an easy drive, bike or walk. We can't wait to go back and we also will be hoping to spend much more time at Island Breeze and Siesta Key. THANK YOU so much for a terrific stay!!

Fantastic property in a wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned to Ireland after staying in Island Breeze for 17 days. We couldn't fault the property. It was a beautiful house in an exceptional location. The house is very spacious and spotlessly clean. It has everything you could need and is just like a home away from home. It is a very short walk to Siesta Key village where there are plenty of restaurants and bars. Siesta Key Oyster Bar was a particular favourite. It has great music and great food. The Cottage is also exceptional for food. There are free trolley buses which run regularly from Siesta Key village out to Turtle Beach stopping along the way. The beach is also a short stroll from Island Breeze. Make sure to catch the sunsets. Jim, who owns the property, is lovely and at the end of the phone if needed - we didn't as we had no issues with the house whatsoever. Jim gave us plenty of information as to what restaurants and amenities were available on the Key - thanks Jim! The property also has a private dock where you can sit and enjoy a cold beer and watch the wildlife of the canal. Overall a wonderful stay in a beautiful property. We can't wait to go back!!

My family did not want to leave and we felt so comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

The property was perfect and was exactly as advertised. We had everything we needed and the house is adorable. The canal across the street was great for a nice break from the beach and still be near water. The owner was a perfect host and we will be back again soon.
