About Lynn Tardif

We are a Canadian/American family and have been fortunate to live in Ecuador, Venezuela, Mexico, Quebec and have traveled extensively throughout Asia. Casa La Plage reflects our travels as most of the artwork and furnishings come from various countries. The house is child friendly as we have 2 children.

Why Lynn Tardif chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

We have family living in Siesta Key nearby and also love to retreat to the beach as we currently live up at 9,700 feet in the beautiful mountains of Colorado.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi Lynn--

Thank you for letting us stay at your wonderful home! It was perfect for us and your music and movies are very similar to what we have back home too. Our children are probably similar in age :)

Any chance your home will be available March 30-April 6 2016?? It looks like its all booked for the winter season but thought I would toss up a hail mary.

Have a great holiday season and my family definitely looks forward to visiting your home again,

The cottage is exactly as described "A GEM"

  • 5 of 5

The photos do not do the cottage justice. The facilities internally and externally were perfect for our family group. Our two young grandsons enjoyed a walk to the beach but they enjoyed even more returning back to the cottage and playing in the pool. The location of the place is perfect just to park up the car and stroll in minutes to bars and restaurants.

I would certainly recommend this place to family and friends.

This vacation home felt like a real home; it was comfortable, beautifully decorated and very clean!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, myself and our 2 adult children loved our Siesta Key vacation. The home and property is very well maintained! So comfortable and clean. It had all the towels we would every need for beach or showering. We easily made ourselves at home whether it was early morning coffee around the pool , family happy hour on the lanai, dinners at the dining room table or late afternoon swims. The kitchen had all we needed to cook breakfast, dinners and make deserts. We made use of the washer and dryer to all clothes were cleaned before departing. By walking to everything...whether it was the beach, out for breakfast or dinner, shopping and the market made us slow down and relax. This location allowed us to be stress free and really enjoy ourselves much more than we had imagined. A big thanks to the owners and your high standards.

It is a gem.

  • 5 of 5

We were three generations, 5 adults and 3 small children, staying on overlapping days over 6 weeks and we all loved it. It became like home very quickly. The owner is highly responsive and has made a delightful home. The location next to the village was great for the young families and yet the neighborhood is very quiet. Rent what the babies will need from A to Z. Do not miss the Sunday sunset drum circle on the beach. Morton' gourmet foods is now running the small grocery one block away and it is next to a hardware store. Several wonderful restaurants. There are none of the Siesta Key parking problems living here. With a true heated pool, rather than solar heated, this house and this location are highly recommended.

House is every bit as nice as described! It is very convenient to walk or bike to beach and restaurants. We have 3 generations & all enjoyed the stay! The only problem: for some reason VRBO did not allow the refundable deposit to be electronically credited so I'm still waiting on check from owner; otherwise all was great.

Owner's Response: Thank-you for your great rating. We apologize for sending your refundable deposit a week late. We did however issue a check as soon as we found out you had not received your return and can see the withdrawal from our account on August 20, 2015, 11 days after your departure. Please note that we have always returned the damage deposit promptly to our dozens of guests over the years. We will confirm your receipt of this check tomorrow. All the best. Lynn

Loved the house

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented the house when we came down to SRQ for my 25th high school class reunion. We loved having a big, well-appointed house to bring friends (and kids) over. We played in the lovely pool and could seat 10 or more around the giant dinner table while we caught up on lost time; we had a big TV and lots of Disney movies for kids (and plenty of bedrooms to put them down for naps too). The kitchen was nicely equipped and spacious, there were tons of beach chairs and pool toys available, and the house was spotless and lovely. Location cannot be beat -- walk to beach access and everything in the village. Owner and property manager were great to work with. A real gem.
