About Cate Chrostowski

We live in New Jersey and try to get to our paradise home away from home as often as possible, all year long!

Siesta Key is great during the winter, but likewise fabulous during the spring, summer, & autumn when fewer tourists are about!

We have tried to make everything as comfortable as possible for your vacation and would like to

Welcome you to our home!

Cate & Jan

Cate Chrostowski purchased this townhome in 2010

Why Cate Chrostowski chose Siesta Key

We chose this unit above all others primarily due the location directly across the street from Siesta Beach which has been rated the #1 beach in the country! However, the more private 2nd floor location and full sun on the balcony all day was equally attractive!

What makes this townhome unique

One of only three complexes that are directly across the street from the main parking lot of Siesta Beach.

"Like home"

  • 5 of 5

I love it here!! Comfortable, clean, all the amenities of home. It's the perfect place/location. The most beautiful beach is a very short walk away, in fact it's close to everything. The sunsets are amazing. I have stayed here multiple times and its the only place I'll stay. The owners take great pride in every detail and it shows in their little piece of paradise....

I highly recommend :)

Wonderful condo for our family!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the apartment for a week at the end of August and loved it! The apartment is beautifully maintained and you can't beat the location. (we did still drive and park because we have 7 kids and at the end of the beach day, it's tiring to walk - especially in hot August)

The beach was beautiful and the town lovely.... thanks so much for a nice home away from home with much needed family time!

lovely home, but we won't be back

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Cate and Jan's house. It is well stocked and convenient. We also enjoyed the pool.

We had some disappointments. Our SUV would not fit in the garage. Our daughter and her family came in a CRV, and it barely fit. There are 3 sets of steps up to the front door, for a total of about 20-25 stairs. We both have had joint replacements, and steps are an unpleasant difficulty. If our daughter and her family had not been there, I'm not sure when, or if, we would have been able to get our baggage up to the top. We were not prepared for that.

We are clean, considerate people who take care of our belongings as well as those of others. I understand the need for a security deposit, but we paid the $400 a month or more before our trip (when we booked), and over 3 weeks later, we have not been notified of it's return to us. Also disappointing were the number of fees added on if this or that was done or not done. The sheets and towels are to be washed before leaving, but folded and put away. If the towels are hung up, they will be considered dirty, rewashed, and a $25 charge added to our bill. Not out by 10:00? $40 per every 20 minutes the house cleaner has to wait for you to leave. Anything left out of place? $25 to put it back. Does that include if you put a bowl or utensil in the kitchen in the wrong drawer?

It was just too much. We liked our stay - love Sarasota - and the location is wonderful. We, personally, didn't like so many stairs or (what seemed to us) overly picky rules. We will not stay in this unit again.

Owner's Response: We pride ourselves in providing a comfortable and impeccable home. I hear the frustration of these travelers and wish we didn’t need to have so many rules! Sometimes people take advantage of a rental property (like rearranging furniture!) and through trial and error, we’ve learned being stricter is what ensures our home’s excellent condition, attracting many repeat guests. We give as many details as possible and I feel awful that the travelers either didn’t read or didn’t recall these two sentences in our listing: “PLEASE NOTE that garage parking in this unit may NOT be AVAILABLE. Also note that this is a second floor apartment with no elevator.” I imagine that walking up and down the steps each day was frustrating. (note: there are 4 steps to the first floor from garage level and approximately 15 to the 2nd floor.) As per the traveler's signed rental agreement, our guests can expect their security deposit refunded in no more than 30 days after the conclusion of your the rental period. As for the cleaning instructions, we are only passing on the fees charged to us and we always make our guests aware of what those will be. Again, I’m sorry that our home wasn’t a good match for these travelers.

GREAT LOCATION

  • 4 of 5

Large and roomy, great location, minutes walk to a great beach.

Rent a car to be able to access lots of great local restaurants and shopping.

We will definitely rent at Our House at The Beach again!

Beautifully decorated home with everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this beautifully decorated house. Enjoyed coffee every morning on the deck overlooking the lake filled with turtles! We were lazy and drove to the beach each day but did not have to because it was right across the street. I can't stop thinking of the chaise lounge in the living room which was the most comfortable and relaxing chair ever!!! I need to buy one because I miss it terribly:(

It was a great vacation for sure! Thank you for sharing your piece of Paradise with us!
