Clean and Comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We got off to a bit of a rough start. We paid for the rental with a credit card and the payment was processed through a foreign bank which charged me foreign transaction fees. After several phone calls to Homeaway, they said that they are just and advertiser and do not do the actual processing of the payment, the information is passed on to the third party and I would have to take it up with the home owner. Once I brought this to the attention of the local rental agent, they agreed to reimburse me the fees and a check was waiting for me on the dining room table, along with a bottle of wine, tortilla chips and salsa. Kudos to Sabine, the local realtor and the homeowner. Shame on Homeaway. If I am putting my credit card info into your website, their is a presumption that Homeaway is doing the processing, not a third-party.

Now -

We arrived and found the home to be impeccably clean and comfortable, a bit older, but in nice condition. A/C worked great, fully equipped kitchen, outdoor gas grill and all the beach equipment you need including towels, chairs, umbrella and beach cart. Cable TV, and wifi worked fine and the washer and dryer came in handy. The private dock across the street is a nice place to hang out.

The house is a 15 minute walk to the beach, which we didn't really mind. The village area with the shops and restaurants is half-way between the beach and the house. My favorite spot was the little donut shop right in the center. Best donuts ever, cooked to order. There is also a reasonably priced market with prepared foods, meats, groceries and beer and wine. We bought steaks and marinated kabobs and cooked them at the house. Plenty of local entertainment 7 days a week at several restaurants.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Flip-Flop Retreat and would recommend it to anyone.

Total delight!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautifully decorated and very well cared for Old Florida beach cottage. We were completely enchanted by it! The pictures definitely do not do it justice. We stayed here at a very busy time of the year and yet it was wonderful to just walk to the beach or to Siesta Village with its great restaurants and never worry about parking. The house is fully equipped and comfortable. Most of all, the house feels so good inside... just like a house should feel on vacation. I found myself sleeping 8 hours a night and taking afternoon naps... a week later I felt like a new person.

What a perfect vaction house

  • 5 of 5

This house is very clean, spacious and is beautifully furnished for your vacation house, The beds are extremely comfortable. Sit in the back yard and look at the stars at night. Its very peaceful. It has all the necessities for the beach. Towels, beach chairs and a cart to carry it all. We went to the beach everyday. There's great shopping and night time festivities within walking distance. The pictures don't do this home justice. It's bigger than it looks. It has a beautiful patio brick porch in the front and back yard.

Cute Beach House close to everything!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this house over the 4th of July weekend and it couldn't have been more perfect. It's an older house, but very well kept and clean. It was actually bigger than what I expected from the pictures. There was more than enough room for our family of 4. The house is a short walk to Siesta Key Village where you will find all kinds of shops and restaurants, and short walk to the beach. The backyard is very cute garden/hang out area with a grill (bring bug spray, but hey, it's florida!).
