“Big surprise”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2013

My wife and I made a down payment reservation for the pink cottage in May of 2012 for the last week of January 2013. When we arrived, Michael informed us that someone else was in there, and moved us to the yellow cottage. When I saw Marie-Louise a few days later, and asked her what happened, she said there was a breakdown in communication with her and Michael - she called it a "gliche".
This unit is badly dated inside. The couch had a slip cover on it, which looked like something a college student would have in his dorm room. The floor mats in the bathroom look as badly dated. The shower is so small - I am 210 lbs. - I could not turn around inside the curtain - I honestly felt like I was living in a travel trailor. I made this reservation based on trip advisors many recommendations, and ranking Beach Palms as the #2 resort in Siesta Key. This is FAR from the truth.

Welcome to Beach Palms, three small historical Island Cottages, each very similar to the other. We offer laid back comfort with emphasis on quality and service to truly enjoy the Island life.
When shermom asked me why he was in the Yellow Cottage and not in the Pink, I did not realize it was a problem for him, as the Yellow Cottage with its exposure to the South is so bright and airy and actually my preferred cottage. Sometimes it happens, in order to accommodate also our guests with extended stays, that somebody stays in Pink Mango instead of Yellow Palm Cottage. So I am very sorry, that this was a problem for shermom. The original Fisherman's Cottages have small bathrooms. However, we keep maintaining with all our love and energy and as Nanny Brighton in her review wrote"... Carol, the cleaner was also very helpful and kept us topped up with clean towels etc...." Yes, we offer fresh towels daily on demand, and we encourage our customers to tell us if something is not to their liking to please let us know and we will take care of everything. We will make our guests happy and replace whatever needs to be replaced. We are here for our guests. ... always with Joy.

We stayed in the pink cottage November/December 2012. We loved it. We had Christmas decorations along the white picket fence and porch and lots of pretty fairy lights outside. We had our own patio with table & chairs and hammock. The cottage had a living area with big TV with lots of channels, a kitchen with everything you could want, the main bedroom had an enormous comfy bed and TV and the other bedroom had a double bed. The bathroom was fine and everywhere was spotlessly clean. The main attraction was the location - a few steps away from the most fantastic beach ever. Siesta village was a few steps up the road with lots of great restaurants, shops etc. so once you arrived, the car could just stay outside and not move. Jorge, the owner from Switzerland, was very welcoming and helpful and a great character and Carol the cleaner was also very friendly and kept us topped up with clean towels etc.

Thanks Jorge and Marie-Louise, thanks to you, it was another perfect vacation. The Blue Dolphine Cottage at Beach Palms is just the best - comfortable, clean, steps to the best beach ever, screened front porch - just to many good things to say. The cost is so reasonable - excellent value. This was our 4th or 5th year (not sure which) staying at this location, and my husband and I plan to keep going back year after year. To go on would just be overkill. Go - Enjoy - Perfect Vacation. Trust me!!!

We stayed in the Blue cottage for 10 days earlier this month. Everything was perfect. From the arrival Jorge made us feel extremely welcome and set the tone for our vacation. The cottages are delightful, the location perfect. A big comfy bed, great air conditioning and steps from the beach, you really couldn't ask for anything more. During our stay I hired a scooter and spent some time riding round the island looking at locations and rentals. Have to say I didn't find anything that met my needs as well as Beach Palms.


Book with confidence, you won't be disappointed and make sure that you head to the beach to watch the sunset. It's so close you can walk over with drink in hand!

We vacation on Siesta Key often and stay at a different spot on Siesta Key each time, last year we found Beach Palms by Siesta Key Village and this year we decided to go back. We made the right choice. We again found the owners to be accommodating and friendly. We booked the one bedroom beach-front and were rewarded with spectacular views and pleasant conversation from the people passing by. We utilized the outdoor grill more and enjoyed dinning alfresco on the patio. We intend to make Beach Palms our place to stay on Siesta Key.

Room Tip: The cottages are great for families with a nice porch but the beach-front one bedroom have the best...

The owners (Jorge, Marie- Louise & Michael) are wonderful, warm, and friendly. Adorable little apartment; clean and stepts to the magnificent beach. A short walk to a cute village...best restaurant Bella Roma...a short drive to Sarasota to upscale dining and shops. Even though we were in the middle of Tropical Storm Debby, we still had a wonderful time and want to go back next month! Unfortunately; they're booked! No surprise here. Will definitely go back again and again and again. Most importantly for us, they are pet friendly (cat friendly!).

We stayed for our honeymoon and we were more than satisfied! The accomodations were clean and very homey! The staff and owners were very friendly and very helpful. We stayed for a week and I had to drag my wife home kickin and screamin! Neither of us wanted to leave! See ya next year!
