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 Bay Isle

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.

This was very good value for money. Great pool and spacious accommodation. Thank you.

  • 4 of 5

This is a large property with a generous sized pool. There are plenty of spaces to enjoy, especially if traveling with a group. We enjoyed it very much.

Clean with lots of room!

  • 4 of 5

This was perfect for us! My daughter and her family (4 children) took one side and my son, his wife, and I took the other. The rule was if the door between sides was shut ------ don't open it. The pool was perfect for a small child as it had a built in baby pool/ launching pad for our 2 year old. Nobody wanted to leave, and we have great memories!

SIesha Key visit was wonderful

  • 5 of 5

The house was per the reviews, an older bungalow with upgraded kitchen, very comfortable beds and a lovely swimming pool that was enjoyed by all. THe pool had a nice shallow area for young children. The baby loved the pool. We were a family of 4 adults and a 10 month old baby. We had a vehicle so it was very easy to explore the area where we visited the local beaches, Siesta Key Beach, Turtle Beach, Lido Beach. We ate at some fabulous restaurants in Siesta Key village and in St Armand's Circle. THe village is a short 5 minute drive away, a bit far to walk with a baby. THe grocery store was a short drive away over the bridge for making meals if you wish. The BBQ was great for meals by the pool. MY daughter and son in law used the bikes to go to the beach and into the village which was handy on the busy days when the beach parking lot was full. Shell beach is a very short walk away if you do not want the big beach at siesta key. The house is a good size and has ample space for two families.. way more space than we needed. WE had a great time and would recommend this property if you want to visit the Sarasota, Siesta Key area. ITs about a 20 minute drive from the airport in Sarasota. We travelled to Orlando one day to Harry Potter World, it was a long day but certainly worth it. Sam was easy to work with and the reservation process was very easy.

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.
