Overall, a good holiday experience
One Ocean - B
1103 Crescent Street
We found that the accommodation accurately matched the posted description and photos.
Clear, and timely, communications, from renter, providing general information and door access code.
Deposit and final payments were taken exactly as agreed.
Accommodation suited our requirements - 2 adults x two weeks.
Accommodation is very clean, and tastefully decorated.
Pros / For:
Great location - Easy to find. Very quiet and peaceful area.
An easy, and safe, 4 to 5 min walk to waters edge on beach.
Half mile, 10 min, easy and safe walk to shops and restaurants in south village.
Parking, for one vehicle.
Fast, reliable WiFi.
A/C worked well, during a hotter than normal February (2018)
Excellent cloths Washer & Dryer + Iron & board.
Sufficient linens and Towels.
Well fitted kitchen with adequate appliances - But, could do with additional cups, bowls etc.. . And, some plates have cracks or chips.
Good (single) bathroom with large shower.
Private/secluded outdoor area with table , 4 chairs, one sun longer, and a BBQ.
Beach parasol and chairs available.
Cons / Against:
Settee and seat in living room and in Lana are uncomfortable.
Given that entry is via electronic "Pin number" - Would like to have a bolt, or a chain, on inside of external doors to provide greater security (or just even a greater sense / feeling of security) while in property at night.
Some of the "house rules & requirements" appear a bit onerous - especially those relating to day of departure (e.g. Stripping beds and loading washing machine)
We paid (not sure if that were voluntary / a selectable option?) for cleaning and for damage waiver - but, small print excludes / exempts a number of issues from these covers.
Overall: We had a good and relaxing holiday.
Great Rental House!
This was an annual golf/fishing trip my dad and I do each year to Siesta Key. First time renting this house. We loved it! Clean, modern, really nice kitchen, screened in porch, comfortable beds, nice fenced-in backyard, etc...and GREAT location...just 500 yards from beach!
We stayed for Thanksgiving (family in Sarasota) and were pleased with the reasonable proximity to the beach access and the space itself met our needs. We liked the layout with the laundry/outdoor space joining what would otherwise feel more like a duplex, but as a result felt more like a stand alone home. I will caution anyone to keep food in the refrigerator or Ziploc bags because ants were constant guests in the kitchen. The AC is not allowed to go below 75 I believe and that is a little high for comfort so be prepared to be warm. When we were there our cost (before cleaning etc) averaged $100 per night so it was very fairly priced.
Very nice accommodations and close to the beach and walking distance to shops, restaurants.
We stayed here at the end of September/beginning of October in 2017. We arrived late at night having driven down from Orlando. It was nice that we had the code to get into the house and didn't have to wait on someone to let us in. The condo is beautiful with all new appliances and updated interiors. We were surprised to find that there were beach chairs and an umbrella which saved us from having to rent ones. It's only a block and a half walk from the beach and is close to everything we needed while being in a quiet area at the same time. We even had the toilet clog up from the previous tenets flushing a Power Ranger and they came and fixed it right away! We really enjoyed staying here and plan to consider staying here again if we ever visit the Sarasota area again.
We really liked our place.Perfect location,just 5 min walk to Crescent beach. Property is very clean and children did not like matrasses on their twin bed (not too comfy).
Very comfortable stay at Siesta Key
All was perfect. The house was well equipped with all you need and was in perfect condition. Easy and close access to the beach. Looking around we could have not found better at comparable prices
Amazing vacation spot!
The location was easy to get to and the process of renting for a week was so easy. We love that we didn't have a house key to worry about. It was clean and well maintained. We were surprised to see the items that were available for us to use including boogie boards, umbrella, and chairs for the beach. The location was the best of this experience because of the access to the beach. There is no parking at this beach access and people would hear about how wonderful Siesta Beach was so were disappointed to find they couldn't park and stay. They wanted to enjoy Siesta Beach because the public beaches were so packed! It was nice to walk right there and be there in no time! There is a grocery store in walking distance and it had everything you needed. The free trial trolleys were a big hit and allowed us to hop on and enjoy the village. We went in July and it was super hot including the water! There was no relief so I wouldn't recommend going in Summer if you don't enjoy the intense heat. We loved it and came back tanned!
Great week at the beach!
Nice place. It's modem and clean. It felt more like a hotel than a home, it's the basics but we are beach people so it was a place to sleep. We needed it last minute as our own vacation home was rented and needed to find somewhere for our last week on the Key. Comfortable beds, awesome access to laundry, and super quick beach access. It's also a quick walk or drive to local stores and restaurants. I'd add a few simple things...nightlights, the darkness is amazing!! But I worried about the kids getting up. A small trash can in laundry room for lint disposal. A TV in the bedroom(s). Great and cute place, we would return!
Complete Beach Bungalow
The vacation was amazing. The house is the perfect size for a family of four and nicely equipped with everything you might need. The set-up was very smart and provided easiness for us to clean-up after the beach, going in and out with gear (kayak, snorkel, chairs, etc...). It was an easy walk to the beach, my 2 year old son would go walking the whole way with no issues. It was 2 minutes from excellent restaurants, grocery stores and super close to the Village where we would get the most perfect Italian gellato. It was everything we wanted from a perfect summer vacation!
Convenient Siesta Key Location
The rental conditions were very nice. All well updated. All appliances in great condition. For a four person rental there was a serious lack of glassware, wine glasses in particular, and dishes.
Once the large condos across the street are done, the area will be back to its quiet appeal.
Response from Rent Siesta Key
Thank you for staying. The property is furnished to accommodate 4 to 6 persons maximum.
We had a wonderful time. The property was in exceptional condition and aside from the fact that we needed another mirror (4 women, 1 mirror) we were very happy
Response from Rent Siesta Key
Thanks for staying and the great review. Unit A which is identical is mirrors galore.
Comfortable and close to the beach
Plenty of room for our family of four. With two young children we had enough room to play and move around. Great outdoor space also.
Beaches and restaurants close by made all the difference.
My only complaint would be the lack of 'consumables'. Buying dish soap and garbage bags and etc was a bit of an inconviebce but not a big deal.
Other than that, we would absolutely stay again.

We were very satisfied with the Renta. We would like to come back.We only would recommend that the owner would have a vaccum cleaner and more Cleaning stuff. After you stay a longer time it feels more comfortable.
As you have to clean by yourself.A bbq place with chacol would be better too.
But we were very satisfied with everything.Very Happy.WE come back
Response from Rent Siesta Key
Thank you for your stay at our One Ocean - B property. As stated in our rental agreement we do not provide any consumable items i.e. cleaning supplies. A vacuum is not provided at the property as there is no carpet and it is not the best way to pick up the fine Siesta Key sand. We have found that a broom is much more efficient for getting the sand up. A broom is provided at the unit. Gas vs. charcoal is a personal preference this unit does provide a gas grill.
We had a very nice stay at this rental on Siesta Key. The inside had been completely renovated and nicely decorated recently, and it was only a little over a block from the beach. It was a plus to have a washing machine and dryer right there to use whenever we wanted, and liked that it was not in a high rise and we could walk right out the door to our car in the driveway. The only down side was there was construction right across from us and it sometimes made it difficult to get out of the driveway, but the workers were very cooperative and did their best to move out of our way if we had a problem. I imagine they are done with the construction now. All in all we had a nice place and a good location.
Response from Rent Siesta Key
A standard block is 600-900 feet long, the unit is 624ft. from beach access.
Nice vacation home
It was very convenient not far to the beach or stores
February visit to Crescent Beach/ Siesta Key
The location was very close to the beach so we could walk there easily! We could walk to 2 restaurants/bars which was handy. The place was very updated and clean. Could use a few new towels for the linen closet as back up.
Close to the beach. More private section, but close enough driving distance to the Village for good eats and shopping.
It was a good stay
It was nice being just a little walk to the beach. Room was clean and organized, all we had to do was unpack.
Excellent Place for vacations !
Everything was clean, excellent location, I'll recommend for any other travelers. Thank's to the Staff !
Great little condo for our getaway
We loved the condo. Simple, modern, up to date decor and the porch and patio area really were laid out great for my family of 4. A block from the beach access, this place had a great location and the area restaurants and market were close also. We will stay here again!
Perfect little get away home. It had everything we needed and then some! There were beach chairs, umbrellas and a cooler in the laundry closet, extra linens, box fans, books and even a pack and play (we didn't need it, but it was there for a family) I would definitely go back next year for vacation.
Another great property from rentsiestakey
this is the second rentsiestakey property we stayed at recently. It's newly remodeled and in a great location, a quiet neighborhood a short walk from the public beach access 13. We loved the little fenced backyard in the back with a pation table set and a grill. An enclosed lanai is also great. We would definitely rent again.
Great time away!
Very quiet, private, clean and comfortable.
We would rent from this party again!
