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.

Very Nice, Quiet Little House in Siesta Key

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent our honeymoon here. It was perfect for us! The neighborhood, Polynesian Gardens, was so peaceful and beautiful. The house itself was very clean. Kitchen is well stocked with silverware, pots, pans, utensils, and cleaning supplies. The onsite neighborhood pool is clean and very well kept. The location was excellent, as it is almost halfway between Crescent Beach and Siesta Beach. All of the free cabs that we called knew exactly where the house was, and picked us up in front of the house. Would definitely recommend for 2-4 guests. We will be staying here again in the future!

The property is great! We would definetly stay again.

  • 5 of 5

Our favorite parts: So much was provided with the house. Very convenient for sure. The house was adorable. The pool was fantastic!! The fishing pier was a big bonus for my youngest son who loves to fish.

The only thing I wasn't crazy about was the distance to access the beach. It was .5 mile walk to the closest beach access. This is not very far but when you are carrying all your beach gear and have kids in tow it can be a little far.

Obviously, this is not a deal breaker but I didn't feel like I understood the distance to the beach access when booking.

Sean was fantastic and was very accommodating and allowed us to check in a little earlier than the regular check in time. We really appreciated that!! We had a great vacation at Siesta Villa Palma and can't wait to come back.

Owner's Response: Hi Chris, Thank you for your comments and recommendation. I am glad all went well and that you found everything you needed for a great stay. A potential consideration for you and your family during your next Siesta key Stay may be to use the Siesta Key Trolley and/or Free Ride beach carts for easy transportation to the beach. Or better yet, why not stay in one of our recently added Siesta Key beach front properties located on Siesta Beach at Point of Rocks and may be found for booking on HomeAway / VRBO.

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!

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!
