About Virginia Heidersberger

My name is Virginia Heidersberger, and I have been personally involved as a buyer, seller and investor in a wide variety of Real Estate transactions for over 18 years, from multi-million dollar mansions to small investment properties, amassing a large and diverse portfolio of residential and business properties.

As a professional licensed Real Estate Broker in Florida, since September 2011, I have shown great structure and knowledge in rental investment properties, as well as I am specialized in buying and selling Real Estate in south Florida.

For the last 18 years I have utilized my own Real Estate investment, from property evaluation to marketing, from strong negotiation skills to equally impressive selling skills.

My new management company Siesta Key Rental Genie Inc. was founded on August 16th 2012 . Since 1998 I have owned and successfully managed a Rental Resort named “Gumbo Limbo” located on prestigious Siesta Key Beach.

Having spent much of my life in Europe; I am as comfortable with overseas investors and buyers as I am with American counterparts.

Virginia Heidersberger purchased this townhome in 1998

Why Virginia Heidersberger chose Siesta Key

Good vacation spot

  • 4 of 5

Nice location so close to the beach! We loved the pool, grills and access to the chairs and umbrella! 10am seems a little too early for checkout and the water in the showers never really got hot-just lukewarm.

Owner's Response: Dear John & Cynthia, Thank you for your review. In your text messages to me you stated that you are "LOVING" the Honeymoon Suite and that "ALL IS AWESOME". After I read your review I checked on the water temperature of each shower in the Honeymoon suite and both of them had HOT water, but you need to let it run for about 1-2 minutes before it gets hot. Also, you may have had the dishwasher running, or a load of laundry at that time, or another person before you had taken a long shower and the water heater needed to reheat water. Your complaint about the check-out time: We work with a cleaning company who needs to start at 10:00 AM, but promises to be done with all our 16 apartments no later than 4:00 PM (often they are done earlier, so new arriving guest can check-in earlier too), and if they cannot start cleaning on time the cleaning staff moves on to other vacation rentals on the island and will not come back the same day. Now we all have "instant booking" online, and imagine we get a reservation in last minute, than the new guests will arrive to a dirty apartment. I explained all of that to you in detail, but believe it or not, I know for fact that most small accommodations on Siesta Key have 10:00 AM as a check out time. I have managed and owned my rentals for 20 years and I am always trying to please my costumers, but I do not clean my apartments, and so I have to work with the cleaning company's rules. You did not mention that I had offered you an "early check-in (8:00 AM)" if you wanted it for NO extra charge because the apartment had been cleaned the day before your arrival. I think that is noteworthy too. Sorry, but I take all reviews to my heart and would like guests to know that it is not an easy job to please each guest, but I ALWAYS try. It is easy to discredit and write negative reviews that can hurt a business. Please think about this when writing your next review and remarks that could have been discussed with the manager / owner / me. Instead of 5 starts you gave me 4 for reasons that weren't really "REASONS." I make a living with renting my apartments and not getting an excellent review may cost me potential costumers. However, thank you for having stayed at my resort and that you enjoyed your stay. Best, Virginia

Great place and close to beach!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in honeymoon suite. Very nice place, beach across the street, supplied beach chairs and umbrella, you can drink alcohol on beach, great pool, town less than a mile away-fun place to go with good food and bars. Honeymoon suite had two balconies one on lower and one upper level. Ate breakfast every morning on upper balcony where u could see the ocean. Also, beach has softest sand ever. Stay here you will be very happy with this unit and the area 😄�

1st time at Gumbo Limbo

  • 5 of 5

The unit is exactly as pictured on the video. It has the most comfortable furniture, is quiet, & clean. We had everything we needed. Short walk to the most beautiful beach we've been to. Walking distance to the shops & restaurants. We did not have the best weather, but we made the best of it. Never had a bad meal. Check out Siesta Key Oyster Bar, Walt's Fish House, & a short drive to Venice to try Made in Italy. We loved it there & can't wait to go back. Virginia is the most friendly person to talk to, she really makes your stay the best it can be.
