Six ladies on a girls getaway stayed at Gumbo Limbo in the Royal Palm suite and it was amazing... The located is wonderful and the house is very well kept. The Royal Palm suite is large and bright and airy. Six women had plenty of room and bathrooms. The views of the beach and ocean are lovely. Virginia is a delight to work with. I highly recommend staying at Gumbo Limbo. We all look forward to going back.

Overall, we had a positive experience at Gumbo Limbo in Siesta Key. We rented the Island Suite which has two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Our suite was on the ground floor and the renters above us had small children who ran incessantly. The noise from their footsteps was significant. I talked with their father and he was understanding and he probably tried to slow them down. A better insulated building likely would have tempered the noise. I suggest that you reserve a second floor suite.
The manager, Virginia, is very pleasant. The location is fantastic, just a few steps from a beautiful beach. The pool is quite nice and the grounds were clean. We can recommend Gumbo Limbo.

Room Tip: Select a second floor suite.

We just got back today from a week in the Royal Palm suite and it was amazing! The house is spectacular and we had a hard time leaving. In one word, location! It can't be beat. I highly recommend Gumbo Limbo, specifically the Royal Palm suite, to anyone traveling to Siesta Key.

We just returned from a fantastic week's stay at Gumbo Limbo (second year in a row)! Love this location and décor! Virginia and her staff are super accommodating and friendly. We stayed in the 2nd floor Key West Suite which was very clean and bright and decorated tastefully with beach items. The beds were very comfortable and the bathrooms had good strong water flow in the showers. The outdoor space was very tropical with palm trees, a few different seating options, sand and the black-bottom pool with water fountain. The pool area was cleaned every day and there was ample seating for all. A propane grill is available for your use. Siesta Key beach is the most beautiful beach with powdery white sand and a short walk from our suite. Beach chairs, umbrellas, sand toys are provided. The Village is also in walking distance and has many good restaurant choices. We will certainly return soon to Gumbo Limbo perhaps for more than just a week! If you're looking for a relaxing, beautiful, tropical location -- GUMBO LIMBO and Siesta Key has it all!

Room Tip: The Key West Suite was spacious for 2 couples and would certainly be big enough for a family of 6.

We spent 14 days staying in the Honeymoon Suite in November 2013.

Great spot on Siesta Key. Parking for two cars. The apartment (on two floors) was extremely comfortable. Everything was to hand and we could keep our rental bikes in the garage. A good spot to cycle from and the beach is stunningly beautiful.

The village of Siesta Key is charming, with plenty of places to eat and lot's of happy hours (that seemed to start at noon and go on for around for a lot longer than an hour at most bars)!

Free wifi was a great thing to have. Pool was warm and nestled in the back area of the building.

If you are going for absolute privacy it's a little close to other buildings but the charm of the place and the accessibility is worth the trade off.

Tv upstairs impossible to work!

Thanks Virginia we loved our stay.

Gumbo Limbo was the perfect spot for our family (dog included) to spend time together and enjoy the awesome Siesta Key beach. Beach access is SHORT walk away. We all enjoyed the beach and having the great pool was a bonus. There is plenty of room to relax, both inside and out. The outside amenities include outside showers, lounge chairs, grill, plenty of patio areas, tables and chairs to share a meal, and beach toys, wagon, unbrellas, chairs etc.....
During our stay, one or two of the other units were occupied. We only saw them at the pool, we never heard a thing and the peace and quiet was so worth the trip!
We will surely stay here again.
