“A welcoming, relaxing month away.”
Reviewed 23 February 2012 for a stay in January 2012

My husband and I and our dog Trevor had a wonderful month at Gumbo Limbo away from the cold, dreary Ohio winter. Though Elliot worked from there he did it sitting out in the warmth of the sun with his computer, cell phone, and glass of wine in hand. I practiced my yoga and pilates either at the side of the pool or steps away at Siesta Key beach. We cooked healthy meals, walked 4 miles a day, and just spent time together. It was a memorable month for us, made even better by Virginia. She was ALWAYS available if we needed her and did anything she could to make us feel welcome and comfortable. The condo was comfortable---we felt like it was our home away from home. We didn't really want to leave. Siesta Key and surrounding areas offer so much to do. The laid back vibe was just what we needed. The restaurants were delicious and reasonably priced. Virginia wants to meet your expectations. Go if you get the chance. Thank-you Virginia!

“The perfect setting for a great vacation with friends”

person found this review helpful

My 2 best friends and I spent a long weekend (Sat-Wed) at Gumbo Limbo and it was perfect for us. Even though we've been friends for 50+ years, it was great to have our own bedrooms and personal space. The location is an easy walk to the beach and a short drive to the downtown food and fun area. The property is spotlessly clean and has beach chairs, umbrellas, and bicycles for resident's use. The beds were very comfortable and the apartment was peaceful and quiet----no street noise. It was especially nice to have a dishwasher, washer and dryer. Although we have always stayed right on the beach for our anual beach vacation, being just across the street was no problem at all. We'll be back!

Good morning Jane,
Thank you so very much for this wonderful review. Making my tenants happy is the greatest compliment
I can wish for. Even though we did not have a chance to meet, I hope that we will have a chance to meet you at your next visit.
During your vacation time I was quite ill and had to take 3 long weeks antibiotics. Still today, I am not completely recovered…
....bad bug….
Thank you again for being such wonderful tenants.
Right after Thanksgiving we will start to install central AC/heat for the Key West and Island Suite apartments, and the outside
siding will be completely exchanged (as well a new paint job.)

I wish you a “Happy Thanksgiving” and hope to stay in contact with you.





Best regards,

“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!

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!
