The great room has been furnished with a 46' flat screen HDTV, new queen size sleeper sofa covered in a khaki cotton fabric, 2 stylish arm chairs, 54 in dining table and 6 comfortable chairs. An eye catching chandelier embellished with crystals hangs above the table adding a little sparkle to the space. A dimmer switch allows you to set the lighting to your desired setting. The master bedroom coordinates with the great room and includes Paula Deen furniture with a queen size bed and a complimentary sea grass headboard from Pottery Barn.

About The Owner

My wife, Lisa, and I were fortunate to purchase our villa in Nov 2009. We spent time refurbishing it and purchased new furnishings to make it as comfortable as possible. We reside in the complex. This also makes us very available to respond to any questions or issues that might arise during your stay.

Siesta Key is really a very special place. If you have visited before, thank you for returning. If you are new to the area and appreciate a beautiful beach, you will not be disappointed.

Coastal Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The condo was absolutely beautiful & the decor was gorgeous!! We didn't need to bring anything but our clothes. Our 3 year old daughter loved the short walk to the beach & saying hello to everyone. We were so sad to have to leave to go back home. Dennis & Lisa are truly amazing people very friendly and helpful. We can not wait to come back! Most beautiful place I have ever stayed at in Siesta Key! Just absolutely beautiful!!

Siesta Key vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was my family's second time back to this property. It was equally impressive the second time around. The owners take great pride in their property and are extremely accommodating and gracious hosts, checking in on us when we arrived to make certain we were comfortable. The condo is very relaxing and well-stocked with essentials for every day living so no need to pack a lot for a visit. The facility grounds are well maintained and very quiet.

Siesta Key is a wonderful vacation spot. Food prices are reasonable, the beach is magnificent and the area is very safe. If you want to relax, this spot is a very good choice. I highly recommend this property for its value, comfort, and convenience.

Absolutely perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Dennis and Lisa's 2 bedroom villa. It was beautifully decorated--lots of personal touches that made it feel so calming and relaxing. I loved all the beautiful seaglass and the seashells under the glass top dining table---very cool. Dennis was extremely responsive to our inquiries. The kitchen was amazing...very well stocked with everything you could possibly need. Just steps from the beach. We had a wonderful time. Thanks so much!

Easter vacation

  • 5 of 5

Very nice villa in a quiet residence, close to the wonderful Siesta Key beach. The villa is well furnished, with a lot of useful items, a large number of dishes and cooking tools. Even during one of the busiest weeks of the season, it was calm and silent. Very friendly owners always available for assistance.

Spring Break

  • 4 of 5

Our small family (3) had a wonderful time staying in this place. No stairs, very clean, far enough off the highway to quiet the noise and only yards from the private beach. The owner provided most everything we needed (except food) to relax and not have to buy out the Publix and Target. The crystal white quarts sandy beach is like powdered sugar. The condo and the complex are nicely maintained. I would say one of the nicest features about this property is the vaulted ceilings. The rooms seemed very spacious and reciently decorated. While there we parasailed, sailboat, fished, biked, kayacked and ate at many restruants. Yes I would stay there again!!!
