About the property

Best location, short five minute walk to the village

Minimum stay of seven days Saturday to Saturday required. Why do I have bookings a year in advance? Simple answer, once people discover my place they come back year after year. Read the reviews! For a couple of short video tours and to reserve your dates without any service charges simply do a search for SIESTAKEYHEAVEN then scroll down in the search results to Siesta Key Beach Condo Rental. I have this same property listed in the miscellaneous section where it has over 70 reviews just search for VRBO property #137349. People really love the view from the second floor looking out over the grass to the beach. Here are just a few reviews.

Best Vacation Ever

Dear Bob, We just returned from our vacation and I wanted to send you a note. This was one of the best vacations I have ever taken. My niece, her husband and I wanted to stay there forever. I guess that is the nature of a good vacation. Your condo is beautiful. It was very pleasant and the breezes coming from the gulf were cool all of the time. Coming from the north it was nice to open the windows and let the air move through the condo. Thank you again and be assured that I will recommend you to anyone planning a vacation on the Gulf Coast

Arriving late, opening blinds in morning, WOW WOW

Date: Sun, 3 Mar 2013 15:38:25 -0500 Subject: Kexch Rental - March 2-9 - Wow! What A Gorgeous Home and Location!! From:XXXXeech To: keynoteman Bob, Just wanted to let you know, we made it to a 'A Slice of Heaven' last night. What a welcoming home and fantastic view of the beach. We got here after dark, so when we awoke this morning we opened the blinds to see a beautiful beach unfolding before us. How gorgeous!! We went for a walk north on the beach, and then turned in to town. Up at town there was a farmers market going in the plaza where Tropical Wines is located. We met a nice couple there who had many great suggestions of places to try....'Bonjour' for french food, 'Eat Here' for overall good food and 'Flavio's' for pizza . What a nice couple!! We are so excited to be able to spend a week here!! Thanks very much, The Keexhes

• A Little Slice of Heaven

o Guest Brenda B.

o Date of stay 06/23/12

o Review Submitted 07/05/12

This was a really great condo. The location was perfect. Debbie paid a visit during our stay but it was easy to contact Bob Kramer for any questions. The condo was equipped perfectly! We will return soon. We would recommend this condo to family and friends. The farmer's market on Saturday mornings in downtown Sarasota is great.

Owner response: FYI Debbie who paid a visit was not their niece but the worst tropical storm to visit Siesta Key since I purchased my condo in April of 1998. Brenda and Dave were wonderful renters and made the best of the bad weather. They have already booked a return visit!

Truly the best condo on the best beach

o Guest Mark

o Date of stay 06/16/12

o Review Submitted 07/03/12

This was our second time staying here and there is a reason everyone keeps coming back. Its truly the best condo on the best beach. I cannot think of a better place to stay on this beach. The condo is amazing and they go out of their way to make sure everything is perfect. This was a great relaxing vacation for my family and we were sad to come home. We can't wait to get back again.

Recommended for: Age 55+, families with teenagers, families with young children, girls getaway, romantic getaway, and sightseeing.

Owner response: Over sixty reviews and counting and all are POSITIVE. As Mark said in his review there is a REASON everyone keeps coming back. Some visitors book over one year in advance. They do not want the 'love affair' which develops with my condo broken up by an 'intruder' who jumps the calendar. :-) So do not think about it if your dates of travel are limited--book it today.

• Comfortable stay right on the Beach

o Guest Ian A.

o Date of stay 01/21/12

o Review Submitted 06/26/12

A very comfortable condo exactly as advertised. Clean, well-equipped with WiFi and a washer/dryer. Very nice neighbors Close to the village: walk the beach, or take the road. Bob was available by email and answered any questions quickly. Our first stay was in November and we went back for a longer time in January. We'd recommend Siesta Key Oyster Bar for their discounted oysters from 3-6 each afternoon; and Owen's Fish Camp in Sarasota for great casual dining

Owner response: Thanks--and thanks for returning just two months later! My calendar is filling up, and it is because of the people who once discover a Little Slice of Heaven they return again and again--over six years in a row for some.

Views from the balcony are awesome.

o Review Submitted 10/11/11

Mr. Kramer's beach condo is truly a Slice of Heaven on earth! My husband and I love his condo. We have stayed here multiple times and it feels like home when we are there. We try to be respectable to the other residents. We love the area, restaurants and people. We think Sarasota and Siesta Key are beautiful and would recommend it to anyone who wants a great relaxing beach vacation or Florida vacation. The views from the balcony are awesome and you just can't beat the price for the location!

Third visit to the condo

o Guest Michael, Las Vegas, NV

o Date of stay 09/24/11

o Review Submitted 10/11/11

This is our third visit to the condo and we are already drooling at the prospect of a fourth year next year. This place is absolutely perfect and we love staying here. Bob and Lois are excellent hosts and left a gorgeous plant and a card this year. The neighbors are wonderful and the beach cannot be described...it has to be seen to be believed. Thanks Bob and Lois for sharing this with us!

• We are going back again this year!

o Guest Dr. William W.

o Date of stay 09/03/11

o Review Submitted 06/27/12

The fact that we are going back again this year describes how much fun we had at this wonderful place and in Siesta Key. It is perfect for cruisers like ourselves whereby we can tie in a visit to Siesta Key with a cruise out of Tampa. Great places to see, eat and fish (we had our catch for dinner last year). Highly recommended!

Owner response: 'going back again'--oh yes, that is what I just stated in response to the previous review-stay once at A Little Slice of Heaven you are hooked! What could be a better testament than the huge percentage of my guests who come again and again.

• Died and Gone to Heaven

o Guest Verda B.

o Date of stay 08/27/11

o Review Submitted 07/12/12

Bob's place is top-notch and ocean front. It is quiet and you have the beach mostly all to yourself. The sunsets are the best. I have taken photos at sunset with no one else in them but the sun setting into the beautiful ocean. Bob's condo has everything that you need that you can't get at a hotel. It feels like home away from home for us! Bob is a great host and wants to make sure that you are happy. It is very clean. I have recommended this property to friends. The area is the prettiest in Florida. Love staying here and going to the local seafood restaurants and shops.

Owner response: I have lost track of how many years in a row Verda has stayed at our condo. The best compliment you can give a condo owner is a return visit!

Loved our stay.

My husband and I had never been to Siesta Key before, after staying at the Slice of Heaven we have vowed to return as much as we can in the years to come:). We absolutely LOVED our stay and can't wait to return.

• Very Special!

o Guest Jill D.

o Date of stay 07/23/11

o Review Submitted 07/06/12

Our vacation was great and the condo made it extra enjoyable. The space and amenities were even better than expected. It had everything we needed and then some. We loved the view of the gulf from the condo and the walking path was so convienent. Bob was also a great owner to work with! We will definately return!

Owner response: Based on Homeaway's suggestion I recently asked several guests from the past year to post a review. So yes, the 'D' family from Maryland stayed in July of 2011 but posted this review for me in 2012. What you will notice is that over 80% of the reviews are from either returning annual visitors or first timers who to quote Jill state, 'We will definitely return!'

Did The best beach vacation

o Guest Jim E.

o Date of stay 07/16/11

o Review Submitted 07/03/12

We were looking for a place to spend a beach vacation near family. Lucky for us we found Bob's Siesta Key Condo. The location is perfect. A short walk to the sugar sand beach or the village for drinks and dinner. The condo truly has everything you need for the perfect beach vacation from kitchen items to BBQ, beach chairs and umbrellas. The view from the living room and master bedroom are spectacular. The Launi is a perfect place to enjoy morning coffee or evening cocktails watching the sunset. Bob made renting the condo and coordinating our arrival with directions very easy. Thank Bob. Jim & Connie

Maximum four guests, books 7 day minimum Saturday to Saturday.

Owner's Response: I am quoting the comments that I hear over and over about the location of our condo. Guests just love it when they can take just a short 5 minute walk in the evening down to big Olaf ice cream or walk in the morning to have breakfast at the village cafe or the broken egg. Go to any of the places down there and you do not have to pay $20 to park

Great Location and terrific view

Not sure how I was asked to review my own property but I am being honest. Most of my reviews are at VRBO listing number 137349. Best thing for you is to book your property direct without any service fees. It is simple, just google SIESTAKEYHEAVEN and use ivacationonline.
