“We enjoyed our stay at Gumbo Limbo”
Reviewed 25 August 2011 for a stay in August 2011

We enjoyed our stay at Gumbo Limbo. It was less than 1 block from the beach, so we were able to walk to it everyday. Virginia keeps a good supply of beach chairs, boogie boards, and kids' toys on hand. We really didn't need to bring our own. It is a great place to have a family gathering. We used the grill and ate outside by the pool. It felt like home to us. We definitely will return for another stay!

“Most relaxing trip we have ever had!”
Reviewed 23 August 2011 for a stay in February 2011

We arrived in Gumbo Limbo after a lng day of travel coming from a cold climat enad it was everything we were expecting and even more! We had som much fun just taking literally a walk across the street and we were on the beach. In fact we enjoyed it so much we booked the same condo again for this year and had made the decision to do so before we even left. Great pricing and AWESOME POOL!

“Perfect piece of Paradise!”
Reviewed 12 August 2011 for a stay in July 2011

The stay at Gumbo Limbo was fantastic! Everyone of my friends said that they would consider staying there again, especially with their families and children. It is in a perfect location, has comfortable and spacious units, filled with all of the comforts of home! Furniture from living to bedrooms were updated and comfy, and the kitchens are great for cooking and dining in! The pool is an oasis... both beautiful and shaded well! Thank you for sharing your piece of paradise with us!

“A real paradise in Siesta Key”
Reviewed 20 June 2011 for a stay in June 2011

We have stayed other places in Siesta Key over the past few years, but this one was truly paradise. Helen was wonderful...allowing us to check-in whenever we arrived and gave us a little extra time on our departure. The pool was wonderful. I am not a morning person, but at 8:30am every morning I was in that pool. The waterfalls start at 8:45am. So relaxing. The apartment was roomy, very clean and decorated beautifully. Felt like a tropical island.

It was a pleasure having you as my guests at Gumbo Limbo.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a guest review.
My name is Virginia not Helen, but that is not that important, most important is that you had a great time at Gumbo Limbo and that you hopefully will call me again for your next visit to Siesta Key.
