The Siesta Laughing Gull Villa is newly renovated and decorated, all furnishings are high end and yet fun, , the location to the beach, pool, fishing pier, village is perfect! Everything a family may need has been provided including beach supplies.
A stand alone villa, not a condominium, so one has their very own home with yard, driveway and all! Newly remodeled kitchen and open floor plan. Directly across from the beautiful and serene Polynesian Garden Pool, and the fishing pier is right down the walkway. The community itself is very charming and a is a great place to stroll. The Beaches are only a short walk away, and activity choices abound all around you. The active and fun for all ages, Siesta Village is just over a mile away, and one of the best beach bars on the key, The Snikki Tiki, (live music and great F&B) is just 1/4 away - so easy to walk to and from. Yes, this is Paradise!
The villa, located in Polynesian Gardens, is such a nice, peaceful spot to stay. It's a lovely, cozy home that is nicely decorated and very clean! All the amenities and extras to enjoy your stay are provided - from beach accessories to kitchen and bath needs. The nearby pool is large and nice, with pretty flowers and trees surrounding it (as well as everywhere in the rest of the well-maintained neighbourhood). Siesta Key's gorgeous white sand Crescent Beach is a close 5 minute walk. Stores and restaurants are walkable distance, too. Owner was easy to reach, pleasant, and attentive. Would definitely like to stay there again. Lovely.
We (myself and my husband) stayed for 5 nights and had an excellent time! The condo was so nice, very clean, well stocked and in a fabulous location. It was close to the beach and bike rentals. The resort was quiet and the pool was very nice - lots of shade and cleaned each day. Sean Altice was our contact and we found him very nice and prompt to deal with. We would definitely look to stay the next time we visit Siesta Key.
The Siesta Villa Laughing Gull located in the Polynesian Gardens was a wonderful place for our family to stay. The location is wonderful. Located just 2 miles to the Siesta Village to your north and 3 miles to Turtle Beach to the south. We were welcomed by The Management Company upon arrival and a beautiful fresh fruit basket. The place was very clean and had everything we ever needed to cook, bake, relax at the house and/or amenities for the beach or pool. We would definitely stay here again.
I rented Laughing Gull Villa for 6 1/2 weeks. This was my first time as a snow bird. I loved every minute of it, and in no small part due to where I was staying. The house was charming, fully equipped, clean and very comfortable for me and a variety of guests who came and went throughout the time. Renting a house is so much better than a condo. You feel the privacy and uniqueness of an individual property that no condo could ever provide. Polynesian Gardens is an awesome community. The people are friendly, the grounds beautiful, the pool area impeccable, and the dock on the intracoastal a wonderful place at the end of a beach day or outing to hang out with cocktails meeting neighbors. The beach is the best ever and an easy walk from the villa.
Sean and Kara Altice were terrific to work with, from start to finish. Whenever I had a question or a request, Sean responded immediately and with enthusiasm. I highly recommend renting from the Altice family, and hope I can do so again next season.
This is a great property, well maintained and convenient to the beach, music and restaurants. The unit is decorated tastefully in a beachy theme and is very well appointed. The kitchen is fully equipped to cook and serve anything. The owner is very kind and responsive. She has made the place very welcoming and it feels more like a home than a rental. She has thought of everything. It is well supplied with beach chairs and an umbrella. The lanai is great to sit out on. The Queen bed is extremely comfortable. The complex is very quiet. The cable service and internet connectivity was excellent. I would definitely recommend this property. This was the first time I used VRBO and was greatly impressed.
So much better than a condo, with all the amenities you could possibly wish for, with the beach only a gentle stroll away!
The house is very clean and comfortable and it gives a real sense of community but also privacy and relaxation.
Would definitely like to go back!
