Just as we hoped/expected

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week in Siesta Key. Gumbo Limbo was just as we expected and hope for. The proximity to the beach was perfect. The pool and grilling area was a quiet escape from the busyness of the beach when needed. The hosts were accommodating, available, and eager to make our stay comfortable. We will definitely be back!

The best of the best

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here Mar 14-21. I can't say enough positive. Don't hesitate to stay here you won't be disappointed. The place is clean, feels private, perfect location. The beach is the best I've ever been on and it was maybe a one minute walk. Very close to bars and restaurants. The owner is fantastic to deal with and very attentive. There are plenty of amenities including a kitchen and grill and don't forget the pool, very relaxing. This definitely tops the list of all of the places I've stayed at over the last 30yrs.

This is perfect!

  • 5 of 5

before you even see Gumbo Limbo you know you will love it. Virginia is a charming, friendly woman who responds to every request with amazing speed. The unit we stayed in was extremely clean, the bed comfortable and the kitchen well equipped. From our unit we could see the nice pool and hear the lovely waterfall, all surrounded by nice green landscaping. The property is well kept. I've saved the best for last: location! It can't be

beat. Ocean is a very, very short walk and the Village is a mile away, also a nice walk.

We plan to return. No doubt about it.

Awesome Family Spot!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Gumbo Limbo! The accomodations were perfect for our group, the amenities are plentiful, and the location cannot be beat! Beach access SHORT walk away, awesome swimming pool, lots of nooks and crannies to get away from everything, and plenty of outdoor / indoor space.

Our unit was dog friendly and that helped to make our stay even better.

Unit and grounds were perfectly clean and wonderfully maintained. We would stay here again!
