“Great place, great location”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

We (me, wife and kids 3 and 6) stayed for two weeks in July and had a wonderful time. The apartment was nice and comfortable (two bedrooms (1 king / 2 Queen), bath and living room with a small kitchen, with one of the two pools just outside). And the location is just perfect. The beach access was just across the street and Siesta Village just a short walk away. The staff was nice and very helpful, and they really understand service. From the welcome bucket (that the kids could use on the beach) with sun lotion, guides snacks and other stuff to the folder that answers all your questions about the apartment, Siesta Key and more. We could just sit back and relax the whole time. The only problem was that none of us wanted to leave... Hopefully we'll get the chance to come back. To Natalia and the rest, keep up the good work!

My wife and 17 month old stayed for 5 nights in July. Great location - short walk to the village and beach right across the street. Excellent service- staff warm and friendly and very responsive.

Rooms were spacious, clean and well equipped. Would definately stay again.

The Ringling Beach House is THE place to stay when you are vacationing on Siesta Key. We stayed for 3 nights over the July 4th holiday. We stayed in the Flying Trapeze room which had 2 bedrooms, a bathroom, small kitchen and living area. The unit was located in the main building, upstairs. Our unit had a shared deck space which was nice. The only complaint I have is that the master bedroom faced the main street and it was fairly noisy each night. Lots of loud cars/trucks and people walking back from the village late at night. So if you are a light sleeper like myself I would recommend one of their other lovely rooms. We are a family of four and it was perfect for us! The room was very clean and had everything you needed for cooking, cleaning, bathing etc! They truly thought of everything when stocking the units. The property is right across the street from beach access #9. Much less crowded than the public entrance of Siesta Key beach and the sand and water are so beautiful. The sand is like baby powder. Never hot nor is it full of shells. The beach house provided chairs, sand toys, beach towels and umbrellas! We parked our car at the beach house and never had to use it during our stay. You can walk to the village easily and there you will find many restaurants, ice cream shops, souvenir shops etc. The property itself has two pools. Both were clean and very refreshing after a day at the beach! There are gas grills located around each pool which made it very convenient for grilling out.

The staff of the beach house went above and beyond and were very, very hospitable. They even give you a little welcome sand pail with essentials for the beach. Very thoughtful! We saw Natalia everyday, walking the grounds, making sure that the property was clean and that the guests were enjoying their stay.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Ringling Beach House and would recommend it to anyone and everyone! We hope to spend another vacation at the beach house in the near future!

Our family had the pleasure of staying at The Ringling Beach House in the Ring Master suite for 6 nights. The villas was bright, beachy, clean and comfy. Our unit was great for our 2 children (ages 6 & 3) This is a smaller unit but plenty of room for a family of 4. We were on the lower level which made it nice for our little ones. Outside noise was nonexistent however we occasionally heard foot steps from the above unit but nothing that woke our children or caused any issue. The staff was very nice and willing to help with anything needed. I saw members of the staff walking around the premises daily. We cooked out on the grill 2 nights and the unit had everything we needed to grill. The Ringling Beach House is across the street from a beach access. It was a very easy walk. The beach house has a wide selection of beach chairs for you to use (all in good condition) as well as umbrellas for the beach and kid toys as well. Siesta Key is a great beach for kids. Sand is cool to the feet (I know it doesn't sound right, but it's awesome). Waves are calm so our kids had a blast without being knocked over. If you head down the beach to the right, you will find a, "shoal" or "sandbar". This was very neat to go to with the kids. You can also get their by driving up the beach about 3 or 4 beach access points (take a right out of The Ringling House heading towards the village). We had an excellent pizza and great company from the owners of Napoli's. We went for dessert at a fantastic ice cream shop called Sub Zero. The was our second visit to Siesta Key and first visit to The Ringling House. Our entire family enjoyed our stay and we look forward coming back and checking out a different unit.

The Ringling beach house was the perfect spot for our family beach vacation. Located across the street from beach access 9, it was a quick walk over to the beautiful beach. The road was easy to cross as well(I had 4 children with me)
Our room was right upstairs from one of the 2 pools. Perfect and generally just us in there most of the time, felt like it was our own personal beach house!
The welcome basket is a nice touch and included much needed sunscreen! The unit was fully stocked and we cooked all meals on the grill downstairs( I think there were at least 3-4 grills available)
Having all beach essentials available for our use was such a nice plus( chairs, beach towels, umbrella and sand toys!) Made packing a breeze.
We really wanted to live in that unit so that sums it up. We all loved it and can't wait to head back. I believe our unit was 527. In back upstairs right above the pool, which was the perfect spot for us. And I am searching for that cute turquoise coverlet from our room. It was so adorably beachy. Thank you to all the reviewers here that convinced us to book this one. So glad we did!

My family and I could not have been happier with our accomadations at the Ringling Beach House.
Our stay was in the Tiger House. It was beautifully decorated with all the amenities you could ask for. The location was wonderful with access directly across the street to a quiet private beach which had sand dollars galore! Beautifully maintained pools with very few people to share them with.Walking distance to public beach and downtown.Independent little "taxi like" shuttles that work for free annd accept tips as payments. I can not wait to return.It can't come soon enough! :) Love Love, Love this place!

Room Tip: Tiger room! Yet I am sure you would not be disappointed with any of their rooms

We spent 2 nights at the Ringling Beach House and loved it! We were traveling with 4 other couples and each had their own unit at the Ringling Beach House, so I was able to see several of the units. We were in The Ringmaster, which had two bedrooms (one king/one with two twins), a couch, a chair, a coffee table, a kitchen table with 4 chairs, a flat screen tv in the living room and one in the master bedroom, full kitchen (small, but had stove/micro/oven/full fridge/pots,pans,etc) and bathroom with shower/tub and hair dryer. It was clean and brightly decorated (beachy). Our unit had tiles in all rooms and was on the ground floor. We also had a small porch with Adirondack chairs and were steps from the parking lot and both pools. The only weird thing is that our bathroom opened right into the kitchen.

The staff was amazing. Rima was very sweet and accommodating. They left us a sand bucket/shovel, granola bars and other snacks, waters, maps and pamphlets about Siesta Key/restaurants in our room. We were able to delay check out since no one was checking into our room (we gave them our sheets/towels so they could begin washing them). We were next door to the coin laundry (which we didn't use, but it was available).

The two pools and pool areas were well maintained. Beach toys (noodles/buckets/kids toys) and chairs were available to borrow. There are grills for use.

Friends stayed in the Seal property, which opens right onto one of the pools. This also is a ground floor unit with two bedrooms/one bath. It was a little bigger than the Ringmaster. Other friends had the Lion and another unit that were above the Ringmaster. Theirs were upstairs and shared a door to the good sized porch (and stairs) then each had their own door into their unit. These had carpet and cushiony furniture, but otherwise similar to the other units. Our final set of friends stayed around the corner in a unit that opened on the side of the building (monkey maybe?) that was also similar, but not as well positioned in the building. There were parking spaces behind the main building that made unloading convenient.

Walking to the beach was easy - across the street and to beach access 9, then down a path with sea oats on either side til you get to the sandy beach, which is absolutely amazing! The sand is beautiful white and the water is green then blue as it gets deeper. We saw dolphin swimming near shore, angel fish and smaller bait fish came into shallow water and it was calm with just a few waves. We stood out in the water for hours; husband found a sand dollar (already dead) for me to bring home. We saw a snake on the path to the beach, but he fled when we walked by.

The beach had people, but wasn't crowded. We walked right and left and it was more crowded near the public access points vs. access 9.

I would recommend Ringling Beach House for a fun filled few days. Siesta Key is a really nice, slow paced destination to relax and enjoy the sun and beach!

Room Tip: Ringmaster, Seal, Lion were good for couples or small families.
