About Samuel Hayes

When our Family first came to Siesta Key in 2013, we fell in Love with the White 99% Quartz sand beach, the music and food at Siesta Key Village. Literally every restaurant has live music and great food. While we are on the Key we can take UBER anywhere or take one of the local Free Rides (tips only).

Samuel Hayes purchased this house in 2014

Why Samuel Hayes chose Sarasota

This property is called 'Serenity' because it is such a relaxing place to come to and enjoy the island life and attractions. You can relax on the patio, walk to the bridge for fishing or to Shell Beach to suntan, swim, and build sandcastles, or drive to the very popular, white sand Siesta Key Beach or Siesta Key Village with its international menus, beach bars, and a dance clubs. If you don't have a car, there are small shuttle taxis that service just the Key.

What makes this house unique

The home has recently been updated and renovated with new appliances, furniture TVs, and memory foam beds. There are two living areas so that you can separate the house into two different units that have two bedrooms, a living room, a kitchen three bathrooms and a shower outside. This is perfect for larger families that would like to have their own separate spaces or two families that like to vacation together. The two driveways can accommodate up to six vehicles.

Large Modernized Siesta Key Vacation Home a Short Walk to Beach
average rating of 4.775 based on 40 reviews

Great location and nice set up for family

  • 4 of 5

First, let me say that Sam the host was very easy to deal with and very accommodating. You can tell that he has put thought into creating a comfortable place for families to enjoy our beautiful area. The beds are super comfy, new appliances, smart tv's, great patio and pool area. The only place where this place fell short was cleanliness or it would have been 5 star. Your cleaning crew and pool guy need fired. They are taking advantage of you. With that said, I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again or recommend it visiting family and friends.

Great location, and great for 2 families!

  • 5 of 5

This was perfect for our 2 families traveling together! The location was great (short walk to Shell Beach, and very short drive to main Siesta Key Beach and village). Kids loved the pool in the evenings! The outdoor eating/sitting area was wonderful! Samuel was extremely accommodating, and everything was as described. We'd rent this property again.

This is a nice setup. The house has been expanded over the years and there is plenty of room for the family or several friends. The pool and spa are very nice. The location is excellent. It's a short walk to Shell Beach (part of Siesta Beach....access point #1) and reasonably easy to get in and out of the neighborhood even during the busy season. Located on the northern part of Siesta Key means taking a less traveled bridge. We have stayed in this house several times over the past few years and have always enjoyed it.

Great place to vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family, 11 people total, enjoyed our vacation in this rental immensely! We loved that it was a short walk to the beach where we could watch the sun set every evening. The house comfortably fit everyone and the recent addition of the third bathroom was appreciated. The home was well maintained and clean. It was one of our favorite vacation sites!

Siesta Key Family/Wedding vacation

  • 4 of 5

We rented this home back in Aug, 2016. This house was great for the families that stayed there. We really didn't have to worry about not feeling at home. My daughter and her friends stayed on one side of the house and my brother and his son stayed on the other side of the house with us. The pool was great and used everyday. The back patio was perfect and e used the grill, that was very nice. The house needs some TLC. The ceilings, the blinds, the bikes , the shower in the master all needs repaired. I know you mentioned that you were putting a bathroom in the other bedroom and that would be great for both parties if both rooms are being utilized. It wasn't very private at all. I can say whenever we did have an issue, Sam had someone there immediately. I feel the housekeepers are taking advantage of you, the house was not cleaned. I had to clean the vents above the bed, in the master before we slept due to the dust that was on there. We had to clean the bedspreads, they had stains all over them. I swept the floors in the corners and collected dust in every corner. We were looking for a pen that fell in the crack of the couch and, yeah, they need to clean between the cushions.It wasn't anything that we couldn't clean. Like I said, overall it worked and we felt comfortable and the neighborhood was nice to walk in. The tip taxi can't go the house because it's not in the area that they are allowed to travel to and from. When we decide to re-visit, I will see if this house is available. It was perfect for our family. We really did enjoy it. If you like to walk, it's a 3 mile walk to town and back. We would walk to the beach and then walk it, then eat breakfast and walk around town then walk home. It is a really beautiful beach and we want to come back. The house was perfect for all of us and we utilized every aspect they had to offer. I would recommend this house with large families, it's perfect!

Owner's Response: Mica, Since your stay we have installed the third bathroom and a separate doorway into the the Bunk room. I have also replace the plumbing for the entire house and replaced the shower in the master. We have also talked to the cleaners to make sure they follow the cleaning checklist we have laid out. Thank you for your response. Sam

Girls weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This is my second weekend at this home and was impressed even more this trip with some of the additions that were added over the last year. The roof and screened in areas over the patio and pool made the outdoor space enjoyable all day long! I am looking into going back down this summer for a full week with my family and potential friends!
