A Gertrude Rentals property! Our Top Location! Leave the car behind. Richly furnished, perfectly nestled between the best beaches, shopping and dining on the Island, and sure to provide a combination of fun and rejuvenation you won't find in other getaways. Our living room, master bedroom and mother in law suite each flow onto private patios for indoor and outdoor dining and relaxation. You can take your time under the brightly colored pagodas on the patios, wander one block on a quiet tropical street to your beach for panoramic views of the gulf to the North-West-and-South, follow a private footpath to the village for the best fresh oysters, fish, tropical drinks, ice cream and entertainment on the island, or just laze in our lush bedding. It's the only one of it's kind on the key.
Named for our grandmother who traveled the world until age of 91 but always insisted this street on Siesta Key was the place she loved best. Generously decorated with billowing linen drapes and an abundance of handmade rugs, pillows and artwork. which includes W-Hotel pillow-top mattresses, high thread count 100% cotton sheets and plentiful pillows.
The nearest beach, appropriately named Sunset Beach by residents and initiated guests alike, has the most picturesque views on the island and the best sunsets on our coast. When I was young, my grandmother would take me there and swim out so far we could barely see her yellow flowered bathing cap! Today, we laze float and wade there in the calm crystal clear gulf water with my children. We usually take a short swim to Sand Dollar Island. Shaped by the tides, this island is a naturally occurring white sand cay popular with dolphins, sand dollars, conch and hermit crabs.
