Loved our vacation!
We loved the condo, great beachy decor! Plenty of room for our housefull. We had everything we needed, kitchen was more than stocked with appliances, washers & dryers were handy for the week, lots of beach chairs & supplies. We rode bikes to the beach daily & we were super close to The Village. Lots of shops, dinner options & even a grocery store. But also close enough to head to Sarasota without being in traffic. We loved being on the north part of Siesta. Dan & Kathy were fantastic hosts! I would highly recommend
Everything we needed
Clean, well-stocked, spacious. Plenty of beach towels and other gear. Great location with easy access to sites in Sarasota and close to village and beach. Enjoyed our stay. Easy check out.
Everything was perfect! There were 6 of us and we had plenty of room! Beds were great, ceiling fans to keep you cool! Bikes to ride to the beach, cart to roll chairs to the beach! Washers and dryers what else could you need! Kathy was an amazing host! For a first time renting from HomeAway we could not have had a better experience!
Recent Stay - Honest review, the good and not so good
We recently stayed at the apartment and would like to leave (basically) a good review, with a couple of suggestions for the owners.
The interior is as advertised, beach chic, nicely updated, great kitchen, and good bedrooms and baths.
The owner Kathy was very responsive and easy to deal with, when we asked to check-in a little early and leave a little late she was very kind and accommodated our requests without hesitation.
The criticisms/suggestions are mostly with the exterior. We were disappointed to find the grounds not well maintained (at least in my opinion), not a place we wanted to hang out. Palm branches and piles of brush lying about the perimeter, more dirt than grass, it looked as though it just isn't well-taken care of. The numerous large trash bins were frankly disgusting, desperately need a hose and brush taken to all of them.
The laundry room although equipment worked, was dirty and looked to have not been cleaned for some time. Also spotted and killed several large palmetto bugs (aka brown cockroaches) in and around the back exit and laundry room. Another sign of poor maintenance or not having the exterminator there often enough. There's no real excuse for these type of things as they all can be easily corrected with some care and attention.
Summary - The price was decent for a nice "beachy" apt, cooperative owners but they need to pay more attention to the exterior and overall cleanliness of patio area and laundry room.
Looking Forward To Another Stay
The place exceeded my expectations. We arrived to find an incredibly clean unit with plenty of space for two brothers and brothers in law on their annual golf outing. The owners were not only easy with which to work, they were interesting, helpful and very generous. Great location, just a mile walk to the Village or the beach and a very short ride to the north bridge access to the mainland. Ending an evening on the back patio was something we alI found most relaxing. I hate to be too complimentary, as I said to Dan, because I might lose out to someone that books my desired time ahead of me. If it is available, you should go for it, Thank so much Kathy and Dan for making our stay our most pleasant of our three trips. We hope to be back.
Great roomy spot
Kathy was very responsive. We used the bikes to get to the beach. My family really enjoyed the vacation. Would do again.
