The property is BEAUTIFUL!

  • 5 of 5

I made this reservation for my husband's birthday get-away! What a wonderful choice! The Hibiscus was just as expected - bright, cheery, clean and just darling!!! Completely updated, this ground floor unit feels private and secluded, yet close to the pool and beach, too!!! The closeness to both, the village and the beach makes this a PERFECT location! We will be back!

Wonderful!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience renting the " hide away suite". The suite had everything you need and more, even laundry machine and dryer, which I didn't think I woudo need on the vacation but found it very useful ! Virginia impressed us with responding within second to us , even though she was out of the country.

They suite is very comfortable and literally so close to the most beautiful beach we have ever seen! We loved the pool and the house was pretty peaceful , even when full.

We woudo definitely go back and most likely we will.

Thank you very much Virginia for making our stay exceptional. We loved it !!!

Great Location for a Quick Get Away

  • 4 of 5

We had never been to Siesta Key and wanted just a quick weekend trip. This was a very nice location as the beautiful beach was just across the street. Although you have no beach views from the property, the courtyard was pretty and it had several areas to sit and enjoy the outdoors. I personally did not feel that the village restaurants and shops were within walking distance but it was only a short drive. It may have been the crazy heat while we were there, so perhaps on a cooler weekend the walk would have been enjoyable. I did feel that the unit had insufficient air conditioning. The room was hot ! Per the unit guidelines, you were not to turn the air below 72 degrees and it simply could not cool the unit enough to make it comfortable for us. Even with the bedroom/living room drapes open and the ceiling fan on high, we were uncomfortable.

Owner's Response: Dear Ms. Jodi, First of all, thank you for being a guest at Gumbo Limbo and for taking the time to write a review. You rented a ground floor apartment which has a new hotel wall unit that does not have a set temperature control. The AC unit has the capacity to cool sqft 1,500 while the studio you rented has only sqft 550 in total. There is also a ceiling fan above the king size bed to move cold air around. The studio was designed to have an excellent airflow with an open floor plan and no doors except for the bathroom, so I am not sure why the studio should not have reached lower room temperatures. We are currently experience outside temperatures of F 93+ with very high humidity, but if the apartment entrance door for example was left open too long, then the AC needs to work harder to cool room temperatures down and to work against moist air. However, when I walked the property and we both met, you did not mention anything about feeling uncomfortably warm in your apartment.This studio has been rented out constantly and I have never had a complaint, so I am saddened to hear about that on a review. I wished you would have confronted me since I can be reach almost 24/7 and we could have done everything possible to make you happy. The Village is about 800-900 yards from Gumbo Limbo and we also have free rides here on Siesta Key.... One last comment, we do offer two apartments with Gulf Views. For example, the Honeymoon suite, a 1 bedroom / 2 baths townhouse, same building, offers Gulf views even when laying in bed and it rents for only $10.00/night more then the one you rented. I have proudly owned and managed Gumbo Limbo for almost 20 years and I love what I am doing. Happy costumers make my day, but negative remarks in a review, things that could have been changed or addressed while you were my guest, brake my heart. I go the extra mile to assure my guests that their well being is my greatest concern. I apologize for any inconvenience. Warm regards, Virginia

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Hideaway suite over Thanksgiving and we loved it. It was very good sized and clean. The kitchen was stocked with all the dishes/cookware you would and coffee was also provided. The courtyard area is very pretty and private. The apartment is a very short walk to the beach (pretty much right across the street) and about a 10 minute walk to Siesta Key Village. We would definitely recommend and hope to be back very soon!

This is a hidden little gem super close to beach... We will be back!!

  • 5 of 5

Great location!!! close to beach, and dining. Virginia (the owner) was absolutely wonderful. Constantly checked on us to make sure everything was to our satisfaction. we didn't use the pool, but there is a pool and grill if you want to BBQ and hang by the pool. We stayed in the hide-away suite (which is a one bedroom) but we definitely want to come back with our kiddos and stay in a 2 bedroom.
