Great beach house

This house was great for me and my family. One block to the beach and close to the Siesta Key village.

Great townhouse for the family!

  • 5 of 5

I brought my family here for our first complete family vacation. We had a great time! The house had everything that was needed. We used the kitchen daily and had everything that we needed. Very close to the main beach access. I would highly recommend the Palm Suite!

Top loft is a bit hot and on the small size.

We really enjoyed our stay! Great location plenty of room for 3 couples. Loved the pool area. I would recommend and stay there again!

Owner's Response: Thank you Mario for your review. The loft is always warmer than other rooms because heat rises. The AC unit is brand new (9 months approximately and the roof is very well insulated), but we offer extra fans (one should have been in your master closet), and the ceiling fan should helped out too. The glass sliding door is a brand new hurricane impact door (September 27th 2017) which also helps prevent heat from coming in. Sorry, but there is only so much we can do. Thank you for being a wonderful and valued costumer. Please come back and see us again. Best, Virginia

Perfect location. Sweetest owner in the world!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time and absolutely loved the place. The location was perfect, the house was beautiful and the owner so accommodating! The pool was lovely and the view was fantastic!

Only exceptions were the jet tub which we couldn't get to turn on, lack of pillow cases which we wouldn't have thought to bring and the outdated coffee maker (I'm a coffee snob, sorry!!) Next time, we will pack pillow cases and bring my own Kurig! Otherwise, everything was amazing and I will be back!

Owner's Response: Dear Ms. Becky, Thank you for having stayed at the Royal Palm Suite. We would like to let you know that you are a valued guest. I would like to respond to a few items you complained about: Whirlpool: You know that you could have reached me by just giving me a phone call. I am available 24/7 and live in town. I walk my property regularly and introduce myself to guests. The tub just needs to be filled above the jets and a simple little touch on the black GE sensor would have started the bubbles. We also could have given you extra pillows or pillow cases, again, I am just a phone call away. Coffee Machine: We cannot place a Kurig coffee machine into our rental apartments because then other guests have to bring special coffee pods for it too. A regular coffee machine serves all guests and you may bring your own coffee machine with you next time. When you called and asked me what coffee machines we have (before your arrival) I mentioned that we have normal coffee machines with filters. You review implied to other guests that our whirlpool is not working and that we do not offer costumer service because you did not have enough pillow cases which is not the case. I have owned and proudly operated this property for the last 20 years and ALWAYS go the extra mile to serve my guests. You did not mention that you needed anything when we spoke on the phone during your stay. Thank you for taking the time to write a 5 start review which is much appreciated. Best, Virginia

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!
