The house was easily accessible yet tucked away enough to provide the quiet we so enjoy. The house was very clean and nicely furnished.
We really enjoyed our stay. The house was great. It was alittle hot at night but overall it was awesome. The only part which you cannot control is the amount of misquitos that were around the pool area.
loved the home. location is great. walk to shell beach, a tiny island like beach experience (you do have to cross a very busy street to get to the beach), great pool and deck area. included with the home: 4 beach chairs, beach towels, and plenty of beach and pool toys. would suggest bringing a mixer, large pot for cooking and storage containers as the kitchen does not have these items. tv's in every room so it is perfect if you are traveling with kiddos!
Location was ideal for our family of 4 and what we ended up doing while there. You have to expect to drive but was central for all our activities. House was just the right size for us and although didn't have a lot of time for the pool did get to use it and was clean and warm . No heater required. Main floor bed could use an update( new mattress) and beach trolley could use a fix as wheel kept coming off but still handy. We left a beach umbrella as not one there. Would consider staying again. No mirrors anywhere which was an issue with wife and daughters.
Response from Rent Siesta Key
Thank you for staying and the great review. Shame you did not have enough time to relax and enjoy the pool. I think it is the best feature of the home. I certainly would not recommend the pool heating in May and the water is naturally usually up in the low 80's. The beach kart has since been replaced along with all new beach chairs. Mattresses I suppose are a personally preference. They are all around 1 years old
Wonderfull winter get-a-way
Even though we were having a mild winter at home, we figured some beach time was in need. The property was as described on the listing and was very clean and organized. We did not come across any issues during our stay. We have rented vacation homes in the past and Rent Siesta Key's booking and check-in process is by far the quickest and easiest we have come across. Their mobile app was very helpful with all of the property information, check-in instructions, and local info with you at all times. I would certainly recommend this property and recommend adding the pool heating during booking so you can enjoy the pool in the winter as well. If you wait until you arrive it take a good day to heat up. Siesta Key was a great place to visit and of course the weather was beautiful.
Great house, near beach. A bit far from Siesta village. Overall a Place to recommend.

Thank you for your stay at the Garden House. This property is located just 1.7 miles from the village and 0.1 miles from Shell Beach. All of our listings provide the property address as well as a map of the property location which is all available prior to booking. Guests can also utilize the any number of free ride services available on the key. There are also bike lanes in both directions for a quick bike ride to the village.
Incredible stay in Siesta Key
My family and I loved the house and the great pool area where we spent most of our time. The property was clean and ready when we arrived. We did not have any issues at the property and enjoyed it very much.

Thank you for staying at the Garden house on Siesta Key.
Great home, perfect vacation!
This home was perfect for my recent vacation to the Sarasota area. As other reviewers have said the home is small, but it was just as I expected, it was the perfect size for the four of us. The home was very clean and in order when we arrived. The home was furnished nicely, had everything that was needed in the kitchen and plenty of towels for the bathrooms. The pool was wonderful!! After a day at the beach it was great to come back and swim and just relax in the pool area. The location was perfect, (it is a residential neighborhood) only a brief ride to Siesta Key beach, also went to Lido Beach and Longboat Key, both about a 15-25 minute drive. The drive into downtown Sarasota was also perfect, about 15 minutes. Food store was not far at all and we had no traffic problems like others have noted. Plenty of places to eat in the area. Thought the website was great, had all the necessary information for the rental. To the management...Some feedback that I hope you find helpful...I've done beach vacation where I load up my car with everything I need and drive, in this case I needed to fly since it was too far to drive so I relayed on you having the beach towels and beach chairs. There were only four beach towels that I could find (plenty of bath towels) and the beach chairs were all broken but for one so it just would have been nice if those things were equal in the amount of house guests the house holds. The only other thing I mention is the air conditioning, it worked fine and we kept it at the 75 degrees that they asked, but it is loud and just runs off and on all the time. These things did not take away from the vacation, just worth mentioning. Loved the house, loved the area and would definitely rent it again!!
we had a wonderful time...couldn't ask for a better location.
We loved the house, location and pool. Would definitely stay there again!
Garden house is gorgeous!
Beautiful house and property! We enjoyed the pool and privacy of the location. Publix is a 5 minute drive as long as you go early because of the traffic. If you attempt Siesta key public beach get there early, parking is impossible after 10 am.
Would love to retreat here for more than a week every year.

Great location, charming and clean. It was perfect for our visit with family. Smaller than expected, however worked well for 4 adults. We had a great time and would return.
Renovation was a big plus. Neutral colors give the house a fresh, clean look. Cozy layout with all necessary amenities. Pool a definite plus
Family beach vacation
We enjoyed the house very much . It was our first time to visit Siesta Keys so we didn't know what to expect . The week was rainy , therefore , we sent a lot of time in the house playing board games that were provided . It was a good time to laugh and reconnect since our lives at home are so busy . This was a nice place to stay and cook and enjoy each other .
This place was spotless! Perfect location...walking distance to the beach. Everything you need is available there. Highly recommend !!!
