About Faye Girdany

My husband and I live near Pittsburgh, PA. We have frequented Siesta Key several times over the years as my husbands parents retired to the area many years ago. We got engaged on Siesta Key! My husband was born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA. He attended college at Carnegie Mellon University and Pitt Medical School to become an Orthopedic Surgeon. I was raised in the Air Force and have traveled to many parts of the world. I went to Carlow University in Pittsburgh to become a Nurse Practitioner. Together, we have 3 children, a dog and 2 cats.

Faye Girdany purchased this villa in 2015

Why Faye Girdany chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

Siesta Key has been a travel destination for many years for my husband and most recently, myself. We are impressed with the quality dining experiences, beautiful landscape and most of all the powdery white sand beaches! It seems to be forever sunny! Polynesian Gardens was our first choice for vacation/rental getaway. We were impressed by the friendly people we have met, the well kept grounds and feeling of privacy that goes with owning and staying in a stand alone Villa.

What makes this villa unique

The quality workmanship of our Villa is most impressive. After a long search and careful consideration, Chateau Soleil boasts quality, privacy and comfort. A special favorite is our beautiful lighting throughout the Villa and generous windows and glass doors to bring the outside in.

  • 5 of 5

My wife, two granddaughters and I are from Michigan and have visited Siesta Key on approximately 10 occasions including a previous stay or two within Polynesian Village. This of course was our first at Chateau Soleil and it will be our first choice in the future. The owners of this "stand alone villa" were gracious from the beginning of our inquiry to the end of our stay, They were accomodating and truly made us feel welcome and not just another "renter". The villa is beautiful both inside and out and is well maintained and furnished in a quality manner that far exceeds the normal rental unit. The bedrooms are large and separated for a little more privacy than usual and the home itself is larger than most three bedroom homes. It even had a garage. My granddaughters are 16 and 17 years old they loved the rear room with the two twin beds. It was unique, cozy and separate from the other twin bedroom.

The neighbors were extremely friendly and while at the pool one day, we met at least four other families that were visiting Polynesian Gardens from Michigan.

This property was very clean and comfortable. It was quiet and in a great location. I would certainly recommend the property to anyone and hopefully they would not want to stay there at the same time as we might on our next visit. Chateau Soleil will be our first choice in the future. I'm not sure if we could have expected more from Faye and David but want them to know how much we appreciated them and the opportunity to share their home.

Thanks again,

Mike & Kathy

Paradise on the Key!

  • 5 of 5

I rented Chateau Soleil from February 1 – March 18, 2017. This was my second season in Polynesian Gardens, and first in this villa. The photos on VRBO don’t do it justice; the place is more beautiful and spacious than I imagined. The travertine tile floors, beamed ceilings and Venetian plaster walls are just some of its high-end attributes. The bedrooms are large, beds are extremely comfortable, and the sheets and towels are luxurious. Each bedroom comes with top quality hotel bathrobes, and the closets are by California Closets and have more storage than any guest will ever need. Chateau Soleil never felt like a rental; it was like home, only better at this time of year. I love it here and will be back next year.

Faye and David Girdany have paid close attention to every detail. They have been a dream to work with from the very start. I called a couple of times during my stay with questions and some requests, and the response was always immediate and accommodating.

Polynesian Gardens is heaven on earth. The community of owners and renters are warm, friendly and inviting. The grounds are maintained constantly, each villa has its own individuality; the neighborhood is very quiet and charming.

Thank you Faye and David for making my winter get-away so awesome.

Chateau Soleil

  • 5 of 5

Well we had a fantastic time at this villa.Its got everything you need for a chill out.The villa itself has plenty of space ,the kitchen is very well stocked with crockery ,cutlery etc.and there are beach chairs and towels which is a bonus for those traveling by air.

Plenty of space outside enables you to have meals in the sun or shade whichever you want and close proximity to a lovely pool with sun loungers,chairs and shade is great.The beach provides fabulous walking and is just across the road and the little village of siesta key is just a five minute drive away and is a vibrant place for a meal or drink or just a browse round the shops.Our favourite morning walk however was down to the pier to watch for Dolphins .Just a Five minutes walk through the estate.Wonderful .

Polynesian gardens is a very friendly community and Chateau Soleil provides a perfect base for a relaxing holiday.We will be coming again.Coming from oversea we found the support from the owner to be brilliant ,any concerns or issues were promptly responded to which puts your mind at ease.We would highly recommend this rental

The very beautiful Chateau Soleil

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful home for 6 weeks over the Christmas period 2015 and had the best time.

The villa is kept to the highest standard by the owner and everything in it is high end and tastefully thought out for the utmost comfort of the guest.

Faye and David ( the owners) where very easy to deal with and book through.

My advise to anyone reading this review and looking for a vacation rental in one of the best spots of Siesta Key ( beach is literally across the street from the complex where the villa is )

Then I would say get it while you can...you will not find a home as superb as Chateau Soleil.

Thank you David and Faye .
