About Petrija Jen

We have come to claim Florida as our second home. Originally we transplanted ourselves here from NJ and have since come to enjoy the sun all year round and only now go to visit the snow. Ironic as it may seem, but we love not having to shovel snow or warming up our cars in the winters to get the frost off the windshields! Come and see what Florida is all about. Can reach us at 941-626-2625 for any questions

Petrija Jen purchased this house in 2014

Why Petrija Jen chose Siesta Key

Great location and so near the beach with plenty to do in the Sarasota area with only about an hour's drive to Tampa!

Other airports are Sarasota -Bradenton airport, or Fort Myers airport

What makes this house unique

I think our little surprise retreat hut is just the coolest thing around! We put it together and I haven't seen anyone in our area with such a cute hut. We enjoy relaxing in it and being away from everyone!

Great Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful time at this beautiful home! It was a bike ride away from the beach and the downtown. Jen thought of everything...bikes, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, etc. The pool was clean and warm...our grandson spent hours in there and we appreciated the fact that the gate is child-proof so he could only get down to the pool with us! All four bedrooms are beautiful and the beds & pillows were extremely comfortable. All in all the home is spectacular and we had everything we needed!

Perfect Place for Family

  • 5 of 5

My entire family was delighted to spend our holidays at this property on Siesta Key. The rooms were large and well appointed. The extra dining room tables came in very handy. The pool area was perfect - great security for our 3 year old. (She particularly enjoyed playing in the lovely play house on the grounds.)

The locations was also a great positive - about a 2 minute drive / 10 minute walk to the beach. Wonderful to be so close to it - but much more private and restful than actually being on the beach.

The owners were very responsive to our needs. The pool was a bit cool when we arrived and they actually made a trip to the house on Christmas Eve to adjust the temperature. That was deeply appreciated!

We highly recommend this property to any family or group of folks vacationing together. The house has very comfortable common areas - as well as adequate private areas so that everyone has their own "space" when needed. We would definitely book it again if traveling to the area.

Perfect Family Home

  • 5 of 5

House was in great condition and had everything you need for your stay. Great location, at the end of a cul-de-sac, in a quiet neighborhood. Owners were easy to work with on all transactions before and during our stay. Would recommend this house to anyone vacationing in Siesta Key.
