This is The Siesta Key Village Studio, a Gertrude Rentals property! No car required!  Enviable location at the best beaches shopping and dining on the Island, sure to provide a combination of fun and rejuvenation you won’t find in other getaways.  Private patio in a quiet courtyard, full kitchen, and located in the heart of the Siesta Village. 

The Location – This unit has hosted newlyweds, divorcees, an Olympic snowboarder, a war hero, an 80s rock star and countless other people with one thing in common, they love Siestas beaches and the Siesta Key Village. It’s just about 100 feet to all the best of the Siesta Village – fresh oysters, seafood, tropical drinks, ice cream, entertainment, and even gourmet donuts. The patio is shaded by trees and has a chaise lounger and bistro table so you can enjoy a quiet cup of coffee, good book, cocktail(s), or an al-fresco meal. The beaches here are the widest on the island, have panoramic views of the gulf to the North-West-and-South, and are the top spot in North America for viewing sunsets. You can swim or “often” wade to Sand Dollar Island, a white sand cay popular with dolphin sand-dollars and “occasionally” giant-conch. The beach is shallow clear and calm with white quartz-sand tide-pools perfect for sleeping drinking or playing. This is the only spot on Siesta where you can go from the water to lunch or dinner and back to the sand without putting on a shirt and shoes.

Possible Itinerary – Wakeup, decide if you will wear shoes today, then head to Lelus for an iced coffee. They make the ice cubes out of frozen coffee there.  Drink it there, return to your patio, or walk over to the beach and look for dolphins. Get breakfast because there are a lot of great breakfast spots and they serve until noon so there is no rush.  I recommend a crab cake Benedict. When you are ready, head to the beach and swim bike or just nap. This is a special spot so exploring a little will be worth your while. I like wading out to the sand bar at low tide.  Bike rides on the beach are also amazing.  Bike south to check out Point of Rocks or north and east to Big Pass. I usually skip lunch and have a 3PM happy hour meal at SKOB, then after drinking my fill I grab a real meal, then walk back down to the beach to watch the sunset and digest.  The sunsets are amazing, it’s what leaf season in the north would be like if it happened every day, and if they had dolphins and great weather there.  Now it’s dark and you can go out or go to bed, but you have to make a decision. While deciding consider my grandmothers advice “Life is a string of pearls and you never know how many you have left.”- GVLJ

Support Post Booking – I understand vacation time is precious and my job is to make sure you get the most out of it.  My number is the only contact information you need. My units are already at the top attractions on the island.  Cars are never required, but if you have one you get a private parking space. Check-in any day at any time using your private door-code.  No requirement ever at checkout.  Free early/late check-in/check-out, whenever possible.  Never hidden fees or solicitations of any kind. No paper contracts and easy booking.   I’ll phone you to touch base after booking and the week vacation starts. Five days before arrival I’ll email instructions including your door-code address and guidebook. One day prior to arrival I’ll send you a “Reminder” email with all the same information.

When you book with me you get a fully accessible and knowledgeable owner/host and reliable advice from a Google approved local expert. I can recommend the best spot for fishing or fresh fish, Michigan or Ohio State games, romantic-dinners marriage-proposals or singles, Eco-tourism, family friendly activities, or safe ways to lose your kids when you need a break. For the less extroverted, every booking comes with an unabashed guidebook detailing the property, all my favorite things to do in the area, and never any advertisements or solicitations. This is the only rental offering of its kind on the key.

Terms – *A parent or guardian must accompany guests under the age of 21. *We do not allow cancellations and all reservation payments are non-refundable. *Pets are welcome with payment of $90 pet fee.

The Siesta Key Village Studio is perfect for a couples' getaway! It is a short walk to the beach and an even shorter walk to the restaurants and shops in the village. Daniel's customer service is second to none. He even stopped by to meet us

It's the perfect place to stay if you're looking for low budget but yet conveniently located to Siesta Village and the beautiful Siesta Key beaches. We pretty much parked the rental car and walked everywhere. It's tiny - so don't plan on spending

Review #640 Wonderful place!!

This was just how it is described! Only a few steps from all the resturants and a very short walk to the beach. Very clean and cozy place. Had everything we needed. Even though it was just feet from Siesta Key Village, it was very quiet and private.

Review #616 Great Spot In Great Location

Siesta Key did not disappoint. The Studio Village is in a great location. It is a block & a half from the beach, which happens to be up the coast from the more crowded main beach. The studio was well kept and had the essential amenities. There were
