Great Cozy Value
This cottage duplex was exactly as pictured online. The kitchen and bathroom were the best features: very updated and clean! We stayed here with 4 kids and 2 adults and being that we were mainly at the beach, it was perfect. There were 2 boogie boards, chairs, umbrella, cooler, and even some sand toys. The 2 outdoor shower spigots were great for washing off sand. The screened in lanai was good for coming in and leaving stuff there without bringing it in to the house. I also appreciated the washer and dryer in the lanai closet. This was a great value for how close it is to the beach which is the main reason why we go to Siesta Key. Crescent Beach is my favorite part of the whole Siesta Key coastline. I have 2 slight criticisms. The first is that it seemed like it could have been a bit cleaner in "the corners". When we pulled out the sofa bed, there was a towel and plastic bag on the floor under it from a previous tenant. Also, it was slightly impersonal in the communication process. We were having problems with the DVD player for the kids, and when I contacted the staff through the web portal, I got back a very impersonal reply about they didn't know this property even had a DVD player and "do they even make those anymore?" This was not a very professional way to handle my question. When I replied to that email, I got no comment back. These would be areas for improvement, but overall we would stay there again as long as the price didn't increase significantly.
Response from Rent Siesta Key
There was a myriad of people at the property well beyond what is allowed and what the reservation was for. I was distraught upon my arrival to the property which I was personally at just 30 or so minutes after the message regarding the DVD player came in. There was no issue with it at all. It was on upon arrival so I figured they figured it out. The property is not advertised as having a DVD player though... The property was left in shambles almost as if they brought the beach back inside with them and traces of food everywhere. Unfortunately the 5 hours available to clean the unit prior to the next arrival was not enough and following guests could not check-in at 3pm.
2 week vaca
Very clean..but kitchen needs baking pans, steak knives, and the beds need newer mattresses especially on the pullout!! Great location just needed a little bit bigger place so we could all stay together
Great location close to the beach.
This is a great location! We were able to walk to the beach and restaurants. It is wonderful not having to worry about parking especially when visiting during the high season. The house was very clean and updated. Our only complaints were the furniture. The mattresses were so uncomfortable as well as the sofa. All of us did not sleep well. It is not relaxing when you can not get comfortable. The bed in the master was also very low which may cause some difficulty getting in and out of bed.
Great Little Get Away
I stayed here for work. It's a nice duplex in a great area. Only issue is I stayed in the queen room and I could hear the other people staying with me every time they rolled over or moved in the twin room. The beds are so squeaky in there they kept waking each other up and me. Other than that nice place. Oh, and the info book was missing. We looked all over.
It’s a nice well equipped house situated in beautiful and quiet area. There are many things to do in Sarasota. The Myakka River State Park and Anna Maria Island are very nice places to visit!
Very nice, even better than expected.
This was a nice rental and we would definitely rent it again. No problems or real complaints.
Great beach rental for a family of 4
We would have preferred a beachfront property, but this was the next best thing. It's just a short 5 minute walk to the beach through low-traffic residential streets. The neighborhood was quiet even during the 4th of July. The outdoor shower made it so much easier to keep the beach sand out of the house. The kitchen appliances were all pretty new, the clothes washer/dryer worked well. The property seemed well-maintained and pretty clean for a rental property. Our only minor complaint is that the bathroom is a bit small for 4 people to share. We would definitely stay here again.
Easy walk to the beach with young children
AWESOME experience. Perfect little duplex for the right price in a great location. Clean and remodeled. It has an outdoor shower for washing away sand, a washer and dryer that you will need frequently After trips to the beach. The grill is perfect for an outdoor summer barbeque. Renting a place with a kitchen is a MUST if you want to save money on dining out. Also a well working AC to beat the heat. We had a positive check in and out experience, property management company was polite and accommodating. Will definitely return!
Very good choice
Very clean, close to beach, quiet.
Great Vacation Property
Ocean 1 was the ideal vacation spot for our SK vacation. The ammenties were everything we needed to enjoy our week.
The 2 suggestions I have would be that although the sofa looks to be in good shape, you sink very low whwn you sit on it. Secondly,I think it would be helpful to have the rules listed in condo instead of having to rely on your phone or email to figure out trash day, recycling, etc.
Looking forward to renting this unit again next year.
Great place for home base on siesta key. Clean, well appointed, full kitchen, quiet and reasonable. Very enjoyable!

A nice clean unit
Perfect unit for our short stay on siesta key. Well equipped and very clean. Good access to the white sand beach. Close to stickney village as well. Not really any nice views but the outdoor shower and private back lanai are great when coming in from the beach!
Recently renovated, clean, close to beach
Response from Rent Siesta Key
Thank you for staying and the great review. We look forward to accommodating you in the future.
Rental was very clean, only recommendation would be to keep kitchen better stocked with cookware.
20 Days in Paradise
As a first timer to this type of experience We were delighted. The unit was spotless and nicely updated. We were a little surprised that there were only 2 wash clothes for us. We did appreciate that there were some cooking items left for us to use. Would recommend this to others.
One Ocean A
Great location and easy walk to beach. Unit is furnished nicely and bathroom recently redone. Location good for home base while exploring Siesta Key. Easy walk to restaurants and some shops. Captain Kirks, the Toasted Mango, City Pizza, all good.
Current construction (January 2016) of large home directly across the street was somewhat of a noise distraction while we were there.
Great place, great location
We arrived to a clean rental that was bigger than it appeared in the photos. We had a group of 4 adults and my toddler daughter. The second bedroom with the twin beds has plenty of room in it even with her play pen set up by the closet. we were able to shop for groceries at a local publix and stocked the kitchen for our stay. The kitchen has everything you need to make dinner for your family and even coffee in the morning, The beach was just a short walk from the rental. We went there in the morning, midday and evening on different days. Great area to collect sea shells! We were glad to have a washer and dryer available at the rental and also the outdoor shower. We had minimal laundry to do when we got home. Thank you for a great place to stay in the awesome Siesta Key!
One Ocean A Siesta Key...Outstanding
We had were extremely pleased with this rental home. The home was spotless and well maintained with many amenities (bath towels, beach towels, extra linens, beach chairs, etc.) included that you would find and not find in a hotel. We will stay here again. Thank you.
Perfect beach get-away!
Can't say enough great things about One Ocean-A! We loved every minute of our stay in the Crescent Beach area. It was lovely, comfortable, totally up to date and super clean. Plus it's just a short walk to the beach! Loved sitting in the screened-in breezeway too. We would definitely recommend this property to anyone!
