About the property

Castle, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

This enchanting, two-story, canal-front ‘castle-like,’ private home with new pool and spa is situated on Siesta Key within a block of the village and short walk to the beach. With four tastefully decorated bedrooms, four full baths, new kitchen, and large living space, there is plenty of space for the whole family. Whether you are poolside, cruising the canals or strolling on the crystal white sand, Castle on the Key provides the luxuries you deserve during your island stay.

This house is only a block from the center of the village and very convenient to several beaches. You can stroll to a variety of restaurants, boutiques, grocery stores, other specialty shops, and nightlife. Guests can enjoy the natural beauty of Siesta on foot, bike, boat, or kayak. Visitors also enjoy nearby Sarasota for world class marinas, art galleries, theater, and recreational amenities. Also your family’s Disney trip is only two hours drive.

Our home features decorated rooms, and plenty of space for a large family. Outside you will enjoy the 30 by 14 lagoon pool, large spa, and brick terrace sundeck. There is also a mini-castle in the rear for pool stuff- next to the canal, we have a 20 ft dock and bench at the water. We have an outdoor gas grill and outdoor patio area.

We have a nice varieties of palm trees and tropical landscaping as well as our Banyan tree near the water.

Some minor setbacks but overall a good time

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time in Siesta Key! The house is in a superb location- about 3 blocks from "downtown" and just a few blocks to the beaches. The beds are comfy, AC works great, there was plenty of room for all 9 of us, and lots of books, toys and play areas for our baby. We had fun playing in the pool, taking the kayak out on canal explorations, riding bikes, and cooking dinners at home. The kitchen is set up a little funky- there are 2 kitchens and the oven is on the 2nd floor but the fridge, dish ware and most of the rest of the kitchen is on the first, so if you are baking anything be prepared for some back and forth. We were a little disappointed that the jetted tub didn't jet and the jacuzzi didn't get hot since we were looking forward to unwinding in a hot bath or pool. There was also a plumbing problem that occurred, but the owner was quick to send out an emergency plumber to fix it. It seemed like maybe it was a recurring problem and caused one of the downstairs bathrooms to be off limits for the rest of the stay. Luckily there were 3 other bathrooms to choose from. If you need a downstairs shower, check on this issue before booking, since the other downstairs option is a bathtub (which didn't work for my handicapped Grandmother). Don, the owner, was very easy to work with and was gracious with our issues and helpful in resolving them. The castle could use some updates and deep cleaning in areas, but overall, a great value for the prime location and for a house of this size. We had a really fun time all in all!

Unorganized

  • 1 of 5

We arrived at the house and there was no key so we had to get a hold of someone and wait to get in. Then when we got into the house, they don't supply toilet paper, dish soap, laundry soap, etc so we then had to go buy some. If we are paying that much to stay, those things should be supplied. The whole house just felt dirty. The shower curtains are dirty and moldy and the curtains in the livingroom are extremely dirty and gross. The electricity was horrible and the lights kept flickering the whole time. We will not be staying again.

Great Place to go with Room for many!

  • 4 of 5

We were there with 2 families and the house was set up great for that. Only a block walk to town center so very handy. Very nice pool area and room for many. Kids had their friends over during the day and there was plenty of room by the pool. Very nice place to stay and convenient to everything.

Beautiful home with lots of style!

  • 5 of 5

When we made the decision to get married in Siesta Key we were met with the challenge of renting a house that would allow our friends and family to stay with us. This house allowed all 12 of us to stay comfortably and had added class with the castle style!

It is in the perfect location which is within walking distance of all the quaint little shops and restaurants and just a little farther you are at the beach! We actually found that the beaches it was closest to weren't as busy as the public beach which was nice when you are with a group of people.

There was a lot of time spent in the pool and hot tub or just lounging by it or on the dock by the canal. After the wedding we had almost 30 people back to the house for dinner and cake and there was enough seating on the main level and patio area.

We absolutely fell in love with not only Siesta Key but the Castle and we are already thinking of planning another vacation back next year.

2nd stay at the Castle

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the Castle for our annual golf trip. The pool and Patio are excellent at the back of the house and the house has perfect room for 6 longtime friends of over 50 years for our annual get together. It is conveniently located so you can easily walk to the village and the beach. We plan on coming back!!
