This past Christmas, my wife and I wanted to give our four children and spouses, and our four grandchildren, a special gift - one that we'd all remember forever. WE SUCCEEDED !!! We had booked this incredible home early in the year, and had worked with the property manager, Mr. David J. Butler of ReMax Alliance Group Sarasota (email@example.com), on the details. David was responsive to our every need; and, when we arrived on day one, he met us at the house and "showed us the ropes." Wow! - what a perfect home for our large crew. The pool/spa area is beyond words. A great gathering place for the whole family, day and night, with the best feature of the house: large pass-thru sliding windows that connect the gigantic, well-equiped kitchen to a wrap-around bar beside the pool. The home has three distinct bedroom areas, which allows for privacy and functionality. And, there are two large game rooms, complete with large-screen TVs - our grandkids love gaming, so needless to say they spent many contented hours there! Located within a two-minute walk to the central Beach Pavilion, we had the best of two worlds - a quiet, upscale neighborhood, and the BEST BEACH IN AMERICA. We could go on and on about this spectacular home, but suffice it to say, you will not find a better place to stay in Siesta Key, nor a better property manager to work with toward the PERFECT VACATION.
We booked the house for Thanksgiving week for six adults and five kids and the layout was perfect. The heated, screened pool is literally an extension of the house and there was ample space for everyone. The place was better than the ad. It’s just a short walk to the public beach and a mile from Siesta Village. We loved it and would rent there again.
There are nine of us that travel together every year, and this home and David made Siesta Key our best vacation yet. The location is a block away from beach pavilion. We loaded up our beach cart and pulled to beach everyday. The Village, where shopping and restaurants are located, is only a 15 minute walk, but we preferred tip taxis or the free trolley that has a stop a block away.
The house...amazing! I can't say enough about the pool area. We'd come home from beach, shower off sand (shower outside, by pool), and jump in. We had afternoon rain showers but loved it because part of patio is covered. We'd open open pass through windows, at outside bar, and pass food and drinks from kitchen while watching rain.
All beds were very comfortable, and master bathroom is huge with walk in shower. There are two living rooms and two large tables that were very handy for playing games. There's also a large table on patio where we ate breakfast. We also had dinner on patio one night, utilizing the gas grill to cook the fish we caught that day.
We did have a couple minor issues that popped up with house but David was right on it and everything was resolved ASAP. David was a great host, and we can't wait to come back.
We have a couple very picky gals in our party that have never said they'd stay in same place again but they did on this house!
I highly recommend!
