“Best Kept Secret on Siesta Key!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2006

By stroke of luck I found Beach Palms on the internet. The owners (Joerg & Marie-Louise) went out of their way to make our stay in the Pink Mango Cottage a wonderful experience. The cottages are quaint and charming...true feeling of Key West. A step or two from the best beach and the village on Siesta Key. Every possible need was anticipated and the smells, sounds and views exceeded our expectations. We have stayed in other Siesta Key accommodations over the years, but Beach Palms will be home away from home from now on (even if only for a vacation). Everything on the webb site is accurate and all you have to do is take a look and call Marie-Louise...you will not be disappointed...try it...you will love it...Richard, Diane and Mark Trettin of indianapolis, Indiana.

I do not recommend the Beach Palms. I will never stay there again. Don't stay here if you have a pet. I paid a 15% pet fee to bring my 2 small dogs and we were in one of the suites. The couple in the suite next to us complained that the dogs barked whenever we were out. I admit they did bark some but when we came back from dinner the first night we looked in the windows and both dogs were asleep in the living area so they couldn't have been barking the whole time. The owner of Beach Palms was out of the country but the person she left in charge stopped by and told us we would have to take the dogs with us when we went out. That meant we couldn't go to the beach or the restaurants. I called him later that evening and said the only resolution I could think of was for us to check out and receive a refund for the unused nights. He agreed but said he didn't know how to process the transaction but that the owner would take care of it when she returned. I even questioned him if there would be a problem receiving a refund and he told me how he had known the owners when they owned Tropical Breeze and that I wouldn't have a problem receiving the refund. When the owner returned and I contacted her she refused to refund the 2 unused nights. We had booked 4 nights and only stayed 1 night. I agreed to pay for 2 since we left so late in the evening. The owner isn't very nice or accomodating and will not honor the decision made by the person she left in charge. On top of refusing to refund 2 nights stay that he told me would be refunded she is also keeping the 15% pet fee for those 2 nights which is ridiculous since the dogs weren't there.

This is by far the best place we have ever stayed in Siesta Key. Not only was it clean and bright it is right across from the beach.

The owners are on site and very friendly. They will gladly talk to you about living all over the world and how much they love the area. The landscaping is beautiful with lovely palm trees and luch green vegitation. My daughter tried catching little lizards for hours outside our door. We ate breakfast on the brick patio every morning.

We cant say enough about how wonderful this property is and we would never stay anywhere else.

We have been in the yellow cottage for a week and don't want to leave tomorrow. The place is a delight and the owners Joerg and Marie Louise could not be more helpful.

There is everything you could wish for here and the location in relation to the beach and the village could not be better. You would find it hard not to love this place

Clean, cute, and close to everything! We stayed in the blue dolphin cottage... Walk out your front door and turn right, you are steps away from the beach. Turn left, and you are steps away from all of the bars, restaurants, convenience stores, and gift shops.

Summer is the off season, and we had the beach practically to ourselves. The owners were very nice, and helpful. We rented scooters for a day, a boat on another day... Perfect vacation!

And, to top it off, we got engaged here!

just returned from a wonderful stay at this resort/bungalow. it's clean. well appointed, right across the street from the beach. yes! park your car once. everything is a comfortable stroll away.

bragging rights have to be it's location, your own patio with gas grill and hammock --- how cool is that? the web pix don't do it justice ... you gotta see it for yourself.

i'll be back for sure!

I stay in a different hotel every time I visit Siesta Key. In March of this year, I went to Beach Palms, a small family run resort at the beach. What a fantastic place. I have NOTHING to complain about. Their website is also full of beautiful pictures and what's cool is, the place actually looks like it does in the photos. Hope this helps.
