Overview

About the property

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 Florida South Central Gulf Coast

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.

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!

Great Place To Stay

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming to Siesta Key for several years and this was our first time staying at The Shells Villa. What a fantastic vacation home. The entire place was very clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated with lots and lots of room for all five adults in our group. We spend much of our time on the beach or in the village and both are a very short walk from the condo. We appreciated having all the beach chairs, umbrellas and cooler available for us to use on the beach. We will definitely plan on staying here on our next visit to Siesta Key.

Great Location. Walk to beach and town. Spacious, clean and comfortable house.

  • 4 of 5

Walk to the beautiful white sand beach through the back of the house. No traffic to cross. One master bedroom but sleeps many more. We had 6 comfortably. Washer / dryer for convenience along with all the beach chairs you'll need. No beach view from the house but we were usually there anyhow for sunsets. Elevator available for anyone with disabilities as it's a 3 story home. We used it for my 94 year old Mom. Very happy with accommodations.

Exceeded Expectations

  • 5 of 5

3 generations of our family spent a glorious week at this property. Prepare to have a TRULY relaxing holiday. The #1 Beach of Siesta Key (with private access path) and the town are both a short walk away (no need for a car). No detail is overlooked at this exceptional property - including sand toys, beach chairs and a wagon to pull them in! Very spacious and comfortable - we are already planning our next visit!

Good value and close to the beach

  • 4 of 5

The property was as described in the ads. It is a short walk to a beautiful beach and a block (another short walk) to the Village. The Village has several good restaurants (our favorite was a French bistro) and a small grocery store. The stores are mostly souvenir shops, with a few notable exceptions like a local artists co-op.

The house was clean, comfortable, and well maintained. It easily accommodates eight people. There are 3 flights of stairs and the elevator wasn't very reliable, so I wouldn't recommend it if any of the guests are unable to manage stairs. The owner was very pleasant and responsive. There are plenty of written directions, so you probably won't need to contact him.

We rented the property the week between Christmas and New Years, so the town was very crowded. Since the beach by the house was private (for the homeowners), the crowds weren't really an issue there, but trying to drive on or off the island was bumper to bumper traffic.

We really had no complaints about the property. We completely enjoyed our stay and would definitely rent it in the future.

Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous home to stay in for our whole family. The living area was a great size for us all to be together and have fun. The bunk beds allowed the kids to have their own space. The fabulous beach is a direct walk behind the house. We loved having beach chairs, an umbrella and beach toys to take with us to the sand. There was a housekeeping problem and this home owner took care of it immediately and very much to our satisfaction. We highly recommend this for your vacation!!!!

Fast Week

  • 5 of 5

This home is very well kept. Everything you need for a perfect vacation is here. Fun 4 minute walk to the beach which is almost your private spot. Walk to town in 3 minutes. This was a return visit so we knew the favorite spots for us. Numerous restaurants you can't go wrong.
