Why Altez Vacations chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

This villa was purchased as an addition to the owners first villa, Siesta Villa Coralline, just doors away so that they could have all of their children and new grandchildren join them for our annual vacation. The owners purchased this villa in April 2011 and enjoyed their first Siesta Key vacation in their new Villa over the July 4th holiday in that same year. They have been selectively welcoming family, friends, and vacationers to our villa's ever since.

What makes this villa unique

Unique Mid-Century Modern architecture and design, including Terrazzo floors and handpicked designer furniture. Recently remodeled kitchen. The charming Polynesian Gardens community which is truly an extension of the villa. The large designer pool, only steps away provides a relaxing atmosphere among the moss draped Oak Tree's and garden like landscaping. The Dock which is a very short walk away provides solitude, fishing, bird watching, Kayak Launching, and an occasional Manatee siting.

Great Location! Very Comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I spent Spring Break 2017 at Siesta Villa Palma. The condo was very spacious and had all the comforts of home! The beds were comfortable and all the amenities were supplied, like beach towels & chairs, bathroom supplies and even coffee! We loved the short walk to the beach and also spent time in the fabulous pool. I was able to spot a Manatee off of the fishing dock at the Villa Palma! Everyone was very friendly and helpful. We would recommend this spot to anyone wishing to enjoy an awesome Florida Gulf vacation!

Adorable villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Siesta Villa Palma. Everything was exactly as pictured and described. The house was well stocked with dishes, glasses, utensils, other kitchenware, towels, linens, beach chairs and umbrellas, and more. The walk-in closet in the master bedroom was quite spacious. It was so convenient having a washer and dryer in the second bedroom as well. We also loved having a screened-in front porch. Many of the houses don't have this feature. Perhaps the only downside was that the couch and chairs were not the most comfortable. The community is very cozy, and all of the people we met were so nice and friendly. The heated pool is great - just a few steps away from this house. There is also a very nice fishing pier where you can sit and watch the boats sail by - we even saw dolphins a few times. The location is great too. Very close to the drawbridge, and we often walked to Crescent Beach. I would absolutely stay here again, or at another property maintained by Altez Vacations.

Exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely LOVE Siesta Villa Palma! Upon entering the polynesian gardens you'll see The location is perfect between the bay and the gulf. There's a private fishing dock close by and crescent beach and siesta beach are within walking distance. The living room is cozy and welcoming you feel like you are walking into your own home. There are books in the villa to borrow for that relaxing read on the beach. Such thoughtful consideration has been put into this wonderful home, theres even dice games in the tv stand. I was concerned before arrival of the linens and pillows (I am a bit picky about those things) the sheets were crisp clean and there are so many different style of pillows you will most definitely find one that you love! The towels are super soft, beach towels are also provided. The villa has beach chairs, a rolling cooler, and beach toys! Everything we needed was provided. We purchased our own groceries however you can even have concierge service have that done for you (it's an option)

All my worries were gone once I arrived -Such a lovely home.

Come stay and Relax! No worries in this Eire feel Villa. Special thanks to Sean he was always only a call/text away. Our family consisted of a teenager, an 8 yr old and my husband and I..We love this Villa and I'm sure your family will too!

Slice of Siesta Key Life!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time my boys and I have stayed in Villa Palma. I lived in Sarasota so I'm definitely partial to the area.

The villa is great for a number of reasons:

screened porch in front for quiet conversation and cocktail

terrazzo floors throughout feel cool after a hot day at the beach

fruit basket and Perrier water

kitchen renovated and basics stocked (spices, coffee, sugar, etc.)

lots of bath and pool towels

beach chairs, umbrella, cooler, toys, plus a buggy to cart it to the beach

lots of closet space so you're not tripping over luggage

Location Location Location! Polynesian Gardens is close to the bridge which means it's easy to get on and off the island to do things. You won't get stuck in traffic. Short walk across to the beach, restaurants, shops, and tackle supply.

Fish off the PRIVATE DOCK on the bay!

Rent bikes to cruise to Siesta Key Village, eat at The Cottage, Gilligans, and Big Olaf Creamery, enjoy the night life!

Call Reelin & Chillin Charters for Capt. Terry to take you fishing! Take your catch to O'Learys at Marina Jacks to be cooked!

Owner is always very responsive and helpful.

P.S. We never had an issue with parking at the Siesta Public Beach. The new parking lot is great. 15 years ago it was chaotic, but not any more.

Siesta public tennis courts adjacent are also available for visitors

Thanks again!

Fantastic Siesta Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our second stay at Siesta Villa Palma was just as great as the first. The remodeled kitchen is lovely and amenities were broad and varied. The house perfectly met the needs for my husband and I and our two children. The beach equipment moved to a mini-shed outside which was very convenient. Outdoor grill, table and chairs are perfect for outdoor eating. The pool is perfect for the after beach chill-out. The owners really deserve kudos for their management and responsiveness of the property. Every detail was attended to. The fruit bowl is always a nice touch! We'll be back again next year!!

Siesta Key is a slice of heaven! It is tropical, beautiful, peaceful and a place for renewal. It offers Culture & sophistication, many outdoor actives, and beaches that are the whitest sand beaches in the world, is always mentioned in the top 5 beached in the USA. Our Villa is located on Siesta Key in Polynesian Gardens. It is a stand alone home and we have carefully decorated it to provide a sense of design, comfort, and yet a beach cottage feel. Only steps away is a large and beautifully designed private community pool that is surrounded by large oak trees, and perfectly maintained landscaping. Polynesian Gardens offers a private fishing dock for its residence and guests. The dock extends out over the inter-coastal waterway and is perfect for fishing, bird watching, launching your kayak, admiring the impressive boats as they float by. The Villa is are a one quarter mile walk or drive from from the Crescent Beach, which is along the southern stretch of Siesta Beach. Not only is it an excellent beach, it provides the best swimming, snorkeling, paddle boarding, kayaking, skin & wake boarding, and just plain sun bathing on the entire expanse of the 3 mile shore line. Riding Beach Bikes along the packed sand by the water while teasing the waves as they roll into shore, not only provides fun and beautiful scenery, its great exercise too. Bikes, Kayaks, Paddle Boards, and all beach supplies may be rented at the Siesta Key Bike & Kayak or CB Saltwater rental stores, less the .25 mile from the Villa and right across from the beach. Speed boats, Pontoon Boasts, and Fishing Boats, as well as jet ski's, are available for rent at CB's Saltwater Outfitter too. The restaurants on Siesta Key and Sarasota in general range from casual fresh seafood joints, to world class and acclaimed restaurants. Watching the sunset while enjoying food, friends, and drink, is a favorite past time for most while staying on Siesta Key. For those who love to play golf or tennis, there are many outstanding choices all very near by. Downtown Sarasota is charming, and offers everything from shopping, to interesting site-seeing, a variety of wonderful dining venues, and many wonderful Art Gallery's. Live music from talented artist abound in many of the local night spots such as 'The Gator Bar', 'The 5 O'Clock Club', 'Marina Jacks', and the 'Beach Club'. Enjoy the weekly Farmers Market, or an open air concert. Sarasota is the home of the historic & beautiful Ringling Museum & Mansion, St Armand's Circle, The Oslo Performing Theater. Then there is Myakka State Park where one can see Florida in its wildest & purest form. Disney World is only 1.75 hours away, and Bush Gardens in Tampa is a quick 45 minute to 1 hour drive. Siesta Key and Sarasota simply have it all, my family and I are never bored when we visit, and yet we always leave feeling healthy, invigorated, and renewed!
