About Hollis Higgins

For over 50 years, my family has enjoyed multiple vacations each year on Siesta Key. Thanksgiving, Christmas, beginning and end of summer -- it is 'pack up the kids and head for Siesta Key.' Grand children's school, Husker sports, and the job keep us in Nebraska -- but -- our hearts are linked to the beautiful beach, sunsets, and relaxation.


Hollis Higgins purchased this villa in 1990

Why Hollis Higgins chose Siesta Key

Siesta Key and the Aloha Kai resort has been our annual vacation destination through four generations. We are proud to share our slice of paradise with everyone willing to leave their troubles at the south bridge to Siesta Key and enjoy the best beach vacation experience ever.

What makes this villa unique

Close enough to walk (75 yards) to the best beach sand in America without shoes, traffic or delays. Easy walk to the largest resort swimming pool on Siesta Key. The pool is solar and natural gas heated. Reserved parking at your front door. Great HD smart TV, internet service and bathroom. A new charcoal barbeque grill is outside your back door for your use.


Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a great time at Aloha Kai and would definitely recommend it to others looking for an affordable, convenient, clean, safe, and friendly place to stay. Our girls, 4 and 7, had a great time at the beach and swimming in the heated pool. Thanks for a great stay!

Lovely Cottage steps away from Siesta Key Beach

  • 5 of 5

My Wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Aloha Kai. The check in process was a breeze, and working with the property managers was very easy and straight forward. When we arrived the cottage was prepared nicely with the lights turned on, remarkably clean and the air conditioning on. Parking was available directly in front of the unit and we felt like the entire area (Siesta Key) was very safe, especially Aloha Kai. The best part of this unit is it's proximity one of the most magnificent beaches i've ever seen. You're literally about 50 feet from the sand, and there's plentiful chairs at your disposal and a wide, clean beach with a gently sloped shoreline.

We'd stay hear again if visiting the area. This unit is about 5-10 minutes from downtown Siesta Key and just a moment away from grocery, liqueur and restaurants near the south bridge entering the island. You're about 15-20 minutes away from Downtown Sarasota and about an hour from the Tampa Bay airport. All around this is definitely a great value and a wonderful spot to relax.

Siesta Key's best choice for one bedroom beach condos

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect. It is right next to Siesta Key's Crescent Beach which is rated as the best beach in North America. It is just a very short walk to the beach -- less than 100 yards. The private beach area is not crowded and has plenty of room to spread out and enjoy the beach. Complimentary beach chairs and cabanas made it perfect. Our condo was so close to the beach that on the second day we did not bother to take cold drinks with us to the beach. When we wanted a drink, we simply walked to the condo, got what we wanted and walked back -- it was that close and nice. At home, I walk farther each morning to pick up my newspaper than I had to walk to be on the beach. It was perfect.

The condo was amazing. It was modern, well furnished and equipped with everything we wanted. We had two flat screen HD TVs, free Wi-Fi that worked well, a Blu-ray player and a Bose radio. We had a small by nice back yard and a nice screened front porch. The bathroom looked new, was updated with a walk-in glass enclosed shower, had a shiny new looking toilet and sink, and was very, very clean. The plantation shutters on the windows were beautiful. The kitchen was well planned with nice built in appliances and fully stocked. The backyard BBQ grill was a bonus. We used the grill a lot.

The pool was very large and was surrounded by a large deck with plenty of chairs, tables and umbrellas. We never worried about having a place to sit. We always had many good choices of where to sit and easily moved around to get just the exposure to the sun all day long. We loved eating lunch by the pool. The pople we gret and friendly.

This was a wonderful experience but you need to book early to get the best condos.

We recommend this spaceous, modern, nicely furnished and extra CLEAN villa for a great beach vacation and experience. It has all of the bells and whistles -- central airconditioning, flat screen HD TVs, Blueray player, Wi-Fi and a bose radio. Very nice furnishings in a large open concept. Plenty of bright natural light and a really nice clean modern bathroom.

The beach was wonderful. No lugging of beach stuff required. Complimentary beach chairs, beach lounges and two large beach cabanas were provided on the private beach just steps from this villa. The sand was pure white, soft and beautiful. The Gulf water was blue green and very relaxing. We walked this beautiful beach each morning and evening. It was GREAT.

The pool was heated, large and in a really nice tropical setting. There were plenty of pool chairs and lounges around the extra large pool deck. Everyone around the pool and beach was very nice and friendly.

The location was excellent. We were about two miles from Siesta Key Village for upscale restaurants, bars and live music each evening. We easily walked less than a mile to the restaurants and shops around the south bridge area of Siesta Key each day.

The sunsets were stunning. The sun sets over the water and the sky turns beautiful colors. It is so peaceful that the sunsets alone are worth a return trip. We laughed when the owner recommended a kayak tour on the bay it was amazing. Two old people in their first ever kayak and it turned ouit to be happy life long memory. We did it again because it was so wonderful. We went fishing on a charter boat in the bay and had the time of our life again. Yes, we will be back again in 2016.

This private stretch of Siesta Key's Cresecent is siimply amazing. Great blue green water, one of a kind great white soft sand, plenty of complementary beach chairs and cabanas, and plenty of room to spread out and enjoy the beach almost by yourself.

The cottage was wonderful. Clean, modern, spaceous and beautifully decorated. Had a brand new and comfortable king size mattress. Wi-Fi was easy to connect to and the HD smart TV with HD cable service was great.

The pool was huge, crystal clear and surrounded by a georgus big deck with plenty of chairs.

The staff was very helpful and recommend some close by nice and reasonably priced restaurants.

We had a great experince and did not want to leave.

Modern and Very Clean Villa On a Beautiful Beach

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the Aloha Kai villa, the private beach and the wonderful pool. The villa had all of the features we wanted: flat screen HD TV with HD cable TV service, a good Wi-Fi connection, and very clean and modern apartment. The beach was steps away and we could hear the waves from our front porch. The pool was huge, heated and well equipped with plenty of chairs, lounges, tables and umbrellas.

We liked the location close to the public beach tennis courts (excellent and not crowded courts), easy access to the Siesta Key Village area and less than one mile from the Siesta Key Bridge restaurant and shopping area.

The Aloha Kai staff was very welcoming and helpful. Overall -- a five star beach vacation experience at a very affordable value.

Great Beach and Villa Next To The Beach

  • 5 of 5

Loved the beach, villa, complex and people. The beach was awesome, the sunsets were stunning, and our villa was excellent. We walked the beach to the Point of Rocks each morning and always saw at least one group of close by dolphins swimming north to Sarasota Bay. We sunned in the private Aloha Kai beach lounges and cabanas after our walks. We popped over to the villa to pick up lunch items and headed for the pool for lunch. The pool was never crowded and always delightful. Walked to the public beach to play tennis and relax in a wonderful outdoor environment.

Siesta Key Village was a nearby joy for restaurants and bars. But the even closer south bridge restaurant and bar area was also very good.

The villa was perfect and probably the best choice in terms of amenities and closeness to the beach. The staff -- Cheryl, Linda and Hollis -- was very helpful and made sure we had an outstanding beach experience.

We recommend Aloha Kai for a kicked back, beach loving, relaxing beach experience.

Villa 29 is less than 75 yards from the famous sand of Crescent Beach on Siesta Key -- the top rated beach with the whitest and finest sand in America.

Beach chairs, chaise lounges, and two permanent cabanas are provided free of charge to guests. Marvel at magnificent sunsets each evening from your prime beach location. The 300 foot wide private Aloha Kai resort beach access combined with a limited number of villas provides plenty of uncrowded beach space to spread out and enjoy relaxing beach time.

Walking on the beach is a joy in itself. You can walk over one mile in either direction along the beautiful water's edge and the flat wonderful sand that makes this beach famous. Walk down the beach to the Point of Rocks for shelling and snorkeling around the large underwater rock formations. Walk up the beach past Siesta Key Public Beach with its sand volleyball, tennis courts, and concession area.

Participate in the sunset drum circle at the public beach every Sunday evening.

Enjoy the largest swimming pool on Siesta Key with inviting fresh water pool temperatures maintained by our new solar heating system. The pool deck offers chairs, lounges, tables, and umbrellas for truly relaxing pool time at its best.
