Lovely clean quiet romantic setting.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for a week during Spring Training for the Orioles. Maurizio and Michelle were wonderful hosts. It gave me a relaxing retreat to read my books while my husband spent time at Ed Smith Stadium. The location was great. Within walking distance to many restaurants and coffee places. Perfect place for 2 people.

Perfect Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The Hudson Bayou property is as beautiful as its picture(s). Checking in to the property was a breeze. Complete privacy on the property as well as private entrance which allows you to not bother the owner. The pool and landscaping give it a complete Italian Villa feel. The room is perfect for two and very well kept! WIFI works perfectly for those into that scene, but at this property you should leave the phone off and just enjoy. Outdoor kitchen is perfect for small meals and refrigerator is large enough for an ample supply of goods. Our hosts, Michelle & Maurizio could not have been nicer. The are available for any questions you may have, and provide local Sarasota / Siesta Keys area knowledge, if needed. They also understand that privacy is important so you barely know they are there. We loved spending time with them and enjoyed the morning expresso and sipping wine in the evening together. Absolutely the best property, best location, as well as the most accommodating hostess and hostin Michelle and Maurizio! You will totally enjoy this property! I will book this property anytime my wife and I visit Siesta Keys. Outstanding! Cheers! Joseph & Domenica!

This place is amazing!

  • 5 of 5

If you need a nice relaxing get away,this is the place to be! Maurizio makes you feel right at home. The room is very nice and back yard is something out of a fair tail garden. You’re minutes away from the traffic of the beach but you would never know! Quite and charming!
