Casa Blanca was a fabulous house in a great location. My family has been gathering together for a week at Siesta Beach for more than 10 years, and we all agree that Casa Blanca has surpassed every other house! We had 10 adults and 2 children, from seniors to babies.
The bedrooms layout made sure that everyone had privacy and quiet, each with its own bathroom.
The kitchen was great, with room for many cooks at one time.
But, the really important feature is the amazing view.
You can see the dolphins swim and beautiful boats sail through.
The house location is conveniently close to major restaurants and shopping stores.
The beds are the best.
The beach is very close. We loved the pool and the spa.Dealing with Zack was a pleasure. You could not ask for a more accommodating owner.
We are definitely returning here again, so we hope a week opens up in the summer!
For about twice the price, a party of twelve could get six double queen rooms at the aging motel down the road, share a community pool with a bunch of strangers, be on a busy street, and eat meals in restaurants or holed up in little bedrooms. Whatever complaints one might have about this property, it is a great place to stay, have privacy, and be a family in relative luxury. So before launching into nit-picking the downsides of this listing, I must reiterate that this is an amazing bargain for the price. It was a grand dame in its day, but shows signs of aging and must be a monster to maintain. The layout accommodates a large group like none other! The kitchen is massive and has plenty of eating areas for a large group – unlike other VRBOs I have seen or rented. The pool, while unheated, was so pleasant when it was sunny and warm. Four bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms. There were a number of problems that previous renters mentioned that have been repaired: the dock was new, oven and microwave were brand new, dishwasher and washer/dryer worked just fine. There was a problem with a leaky roof, but Zach had the repair guy out quickly. It is not a “finely appointed” accommodation, but it isn’t a dump either. There were plenty of towels, but not beach towels. There was a shortage of things to cook with, but we were doing a lot of cooking. Several of the chairs around the pool were rusty and not particularly safe. It could use a good painting and a deep cleaning, i.e. vents, windowsills, etc., but we are a picky lot. All in all, however, it was an awesome place to stay. It was OURS! We didn’t have to share the pool with anyone else. We were able to get over to the beach in short order. Renting boating equipment and getting to restaurants and shopping was so easy. While we could have spent over twice as much per night for six rooms at the old motel on Stickney Pt., this place with all its defects is a steal by comparison.

This was my first time staying somewhere that wasn't a Hotel... I'm pleasantly surprised how streamlined the process is as well as extremely lucky to have such a great experience as my first... My biggest fear was the cleanliness of the home... This home was beyond clean, everything in excellent condition. Unbelievable view from every room of this 3 story home. Very comfortable memory foam beds... I'm probably pickier and busier than your average person - so for me to take the time to write a review - it must really be well worth my time - and since I'd like to encourage this type of property maintenance and service - I find it's worth sharing my experience with others who are inquiring...
We have stayed at this house in 2015 and 2016. The property is very spacious three story house, clean and less than a mile from Siesta Beach. Favorite activity is lounging by the pool watching the dolphins and Manatees swim in the Intercoastal. Would recommend this house to anyone. Can't wait for 2018 vacation week!
Thank you Zack!
There is an obvious reason why this property is so cheap compared to others of similar location and size. Yes, the house is large and has a great view of the inter coastal waterway. That's where the beauty ends and the nightmare begins. Upon arrival, the microwave did not work, the oven did not work, the water heater for the pool did not work, a number of lights including the shadaleer in the dining room did not work, the washing machine did not work, and the bedroom adjacent to the kitchen smelled like urine. In addition, the linens looked like they were purchased at a garage sale. They were very old and absolutely worn out, and totally disgusting!
In contacting the owner, he was attentive to our requests and sent the repair person that came in the afternoon. That was a complete disaster. The repairman is obviously used to making calls to this property. He was not able to repair the washing machine nor the oven. So no laundry done and we had to cook our dinners out in the grill. Best of all, his repair for the microwave was to lean a piece of wood against the door to keep it closed!!! The pool repair person also confirmed the multiple calls for the same complaint. He also was not able to fix the pool heater so no swimming as well.
I contacted VRBO and opened a case to file a complaint (#21341480) and keep this property from being rented again. In speaking to the surrounding neighbors they confirmed a number of issues as well. This property was purchased as a foreclosure and has been patched up rather than being repaired properly. Our breaking point was when a rat chewed into our bread and cereal in the kitchen.
In speaking to the owner, he agreed to refund us a 1 night stay for all the issues and inconveniences. After a month and a half of excuses, he is not providing a refund. My goal is to keep others for having to go through the same terrible experience. This property should not be available for rental in VRBO, or any other site.
