Flip Flop Cottages
Ranked #10 of 12 Hotels in Siesta Key
Reviewed 27 January 2011

Banana Bay Club is exactly what I envision when I think of a beach trip. I want to be close to water (or right on it, in the case of their lagoon location), I want to be able to walk right into the room with my sandy feet, and kick back and relax. If you're so inclined, you can even meet other folks that are staying there.

Banana Bay is not about the lap of luxury, but it is about a comfortable stay at a beach cottage. You're within walking distance to the shops, bait store, bank, whatever you might need and yet when night hits, it is the quietest most peaceful place. You can talk a very short walk to the beach and you'll be in love.

We can't argue with this guest, he nailed it right on the head, come try us out and see for yourself!

Our extended family spent Christmas week here:We had Bay Breeze; Key Lime; and Captiva. BB has 3 bedrooms; large living area; carpeted throughout with lovely view: Very well supplied and comfortable: KL was equally well fitted out and comfortable: Captiva was in the row of 4; and according to our son more spartan: Wifi worked well in BB and KL: All units have coax internet connections too:
Definitely BB and KL and the unit under the office facing the lagoon are the best: We would certainly come back another time,
We rented bikes; cribs booster seats and toys fro, the agency suggested by BBC: Very pleased: The owners and Jimmy were very helpful:

We have stayed at the Banana Bay Club on several occasions and we always love it. We always stay at the Sunset Cottage so we can enjoy the porch overlooking the water. The location is great. The manager is always very friendly and helpful. The place is perfect for our needs -- very quiet and serene. We will definitely go back.

We try as hard as we can to make sure every guest wants to come back again and again, and apparently it's working! Try Banana Bay Club Beachside & Waterside Resorts on Siesta Key to experience that unique charm and peace of mind you can't get at the larger over-run resorts!

Thank you!

Banana Bay Club is a great place to relax and enjoy the layed back ambiance. This place is homey and very comfortable. The king size bed allowed for a great night's sleep. The lazy mornings turned in to kayaking on the lagoon and taking a long walk to the south end of the of Siesta Key. Timing was great as we got to see the first Sand Castle Tournament on the town beach.

My Girlfriend and I stayed in the Sunset cottage this past weekend. We chose the room because of the pictures and description online. The two of us had such a great weekend. We were able to bring our small dog with us which makes this an even better vacation. The room looks even better than in the photos. Our first night the temperature was in the mid 60's so we started a fire in the pit and just relaxed and listened to the sounds of the waves. The next morning we grabbed a canoe and traveled up and down the lake. We used the grills provided and again sat by the fire pit to finish out night. on out last day we just walked around and enjoyed each others company on the deck. Even though we only stayed two nights it was a great break from a typical weekend. We are planning to make this stay a yearly (maybe more) event. We hope the review helps.

We stayed in the Bay Breeze House for Thanksgiving 2010. There were 4 adults and 2 teenagers. It slept all of us comfortably with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms to share. We put the kitchen to good use which looked pretty new, and was full size. We had our Thanksgiving Turkey on the deck overlooking the fishing dock and Heron Lagoon. We rented bikes from the village, and when we werent just relaxing in our "Bay Breeze House" we rode down to both Turtle Beach and Crescent Beach to watch themost amazing sunsets. Something to cherish forever. The pool onsite wasn't huge, but it was heated and my teens thoroughly enjoyed that! They did have a laundry facility as well, and some kayaks for on the lagoon too.
All in all, it was a great vacation, and a cute lil place. I will certainly tell all my friends about it -great value for money. No hassels, just relaxation and fun!
