Pool Home, 5 Minutes To Siesta Key Beach
average rating of 4.75 based on 8 reviews
Jefferson City, MO

Clean home with awesome pool!

  • 5 of 5

Great communication from the owner. When we arrived there was no pack n play or high chair as advertised. In less than an hour there was a knock on the front door. The owners made arrangements to have both items delivered to us immediately! The house was the perfect size for our family and the bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. The pool was just WOW. Very clean and included pool toys in the garage. The garage has almost everything you need for a day at the beach, including chairs, umbrellas, coolers, sand toys, etc.. I read the review about the outside being dated, but the inside is very up to date. One suggestion I would make is to add a garbage disposal in the kitchen. All in all we had a great family vacation and would not hesitate to re-book in the future. We saved money by cooking or bbqing every night, and by the owners supply of pots, pans, plates, etc, made it that much easier. Thank you for allowing us to rent your house and make great memories!!

Great house and location

  • 5 of 5

We loved it the minute we arrived! Great house that has everything you need for Florida vacation. Minutes away from one of the best beaches "Siesta Key Beach" Very clean and well maintained. Large clean pool as well. We going to choose this house next time we look for a house for a vacation in Florida.

Owner's Response: We are so happy that you had a wonderful vacation and enjoyed the house as much as we do. That beach and the area being so close to everything and still getting the quiet neighborhood and privacy is what makes for the best place to vacation. We want to thank you for taking such good care of our home. Call us again! Sharon and Jon Whittle

We will return

  • 4 of 5

Upon arrival the property appeared a little dated. After we entered we noticed a modern kitchen with granite tops, well stocked with plenty of utensils pots pans and even some condiments and spices which saved us a great deal of trouble. The pool and lanai area suited our playtime perfectly. Had the pool been heated I think we would have used it more. A little cool getting into it. Plenty of shopping nearby and close to siesta key beach. May be 10 minutes. We would return.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and for taking such good care of our home. We have been very fortunate to have great renters like you. Our home was built in 1973 and we are continuing to update. The entire pool area has been renovated and 95% of the inside. We are getting closer each year and hoping to be done soon. It is most important to us to finish the usable space first and finally the curb appeal will be last. We are pleased that you had a wonderful vacation and were able to use the pool. I am working on getting a pool heater for next year. Usually May is plenty warm for swimming. We love the area as well because it is so close to everything and still plenty of privacy at home in a quiet neighborhood. Siesta Key was just voted # 1 beach in America again this year!

Great Place !

  • 5 of 5

Nice home with everything you could need. Short drive to beaches, shopping and many restaurant choices. Pool and beach toys available for all ages. Floorpan allows for plenty of space for the family to feel comfortable. Internet was great for those who need to stay connected. Highly recommend this home.

Great Sarasota home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Sharon and Jon's home last year and we loved it so much we are returning this year. The home is beautifully decorated and very spacious. My son loved the pool and the beautiful Siesta Key beach is just minutes away. The neighborhood is very safe and with very little vehicle traffic I was able to take my morning run without any worry.

Sharon was very attentive to our every need. I highly recommend this beautiful three bedroom pooled home.

We are looking forward to our visit again.
