About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 10

Casa Van Lopik (Jardin). Brought to you by Gertrude Rentals! Our garden-facing suite, is a large 3BR home perfectly located between the best beaches, shopping dining and entertainment on the Island. It was named for my father who was a ships captain and sailed the world for 30 years but always insisted Siesta Keys beaches were most beautiful. Tastefully decorated with vaulted ceilings, oak railings and Indo-Spanish charm. Perfectly appointed with high thread-count 100% cotton sheets and W-Hotel pillow top mattresses. Casa Van Lopik is the perfect blend of Island ease and comforting luxury. Leave the car behind. After the beach, you could wander to town for fresh oysters and seafood, drinks, live music or ice cream. This house is a great location for stunning sunsets. The kitchen is fully equipped and has an open floor plan from dining area to balcony, all with westerly exposure. The back garden has space for casual dining and is also westerly facing. You can get fresh fish at the Village Market one block away or catch your own right in front of the house.

About Daniel Jones

Gertrude Rentals was named for the owner-operator’s (Daniel) grandmother. Gertrude Van-Lopik was an adventurous traveler well into her 90s who circumnavigating the globe more than two dozen times. Gertrude Rentals is a multi-generational, family business and includes a wife, a husband, a daughter, and a lifetime friend. With 48 beds we are also the largest owner operator of premier vacation rentals on Siesta Key and have more than 100 positive reviews “and growing” (we are very proud of them).

Daniel Jones is the head honcho of Siesta Key and the owner-operator of Gertrude Rentals, his third of four children. Dan was born in Sarasota and lived on Siesta Key for 25 years before leaving to work in New York City. In 2010 Dan came to his senses and abandoned a career in finance to spend more time with his friends and family and, ultimately, to pursue this labor of love. He is passionate about providing affordable beach-luxury during what he calls “sacred vacation time”. He loves surfing, interior design, and seafood. Dan's departure from Wall Street and return to the beaches of Siesta Key represents the hallmark spirit of Gertrude Rentals - no collars, no shoes, no problems!

Daniel Jones purchased this house in 2012

Excellent! 4.7/5 -

Excellent location and comfortable accomodations

  • 4 of 5

Our family of eight was very comfortable in this house. There are three bedrooms with two baths, comfortable living area, decent kitchen, nice porch, lovely shared backyard with lots seating (shared with attached property in same duplex type situation).

But by far, the best detail about this house is it's close proximity to the beach (closest is Beach Access 7) and Siesta Key Village. Within a five minute walk in either direction, you will arrive at the beach which is lovely with white, sugar-fine sand or the fun, quaint village with shops, restaurants, etc.

A couple of bonus details -

1) There were plenty of towels in the house. More than enough to use within the house for showers etc, and even more to take with you to the beach.

2) The owner was so kind and within 24 hours of check-out, he sent an email notifying us that we were to do nothing before we checked out except to enjoy our last 24 hours in Siesta Key. This is extremely unusual when staying in a VRBO. Often there are specific requests to take care of, but not here. So kind and truly appreciated.

3) There is a nice supermarket in the village, but it can be a bit pricey compared to bigger, more national chain supermarkets further away. However, it is convenient.

Only one minor, minor complaint - The property did not have any beach gear like umbrellas, chairs, sand toys, etc. However, we rented items with no problem so I share this as a heads up to plan for. :)

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our time here and would stay here again.

Lovely comfortable house in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Great Location, 5 mins to the beach and the village. Quiet house, with lovely back garden, shady when the sun hot. The outdoor /indoor dining room was very useful for family evening barbecues to escape any mosquitos. Beds really comfortable, bathrooms a good size, and lots of beach chairs, parasoles and beach towels provided. Comfortable sitting room with vaulted ceiling so a great feeling of space. The balcony overlooking canal also well used by us! We would all definitely recommend it!

Great location, amazing provisions, GREAT vacay

  • 4 of 5

It was so nice to deal with Daniel, who from the start even when inquiring was extremely warm and informative. The balcony overlooking the garden is wonderful, as is the 2 story rental. Have an upstairs for kids/sleeping and downstairs as a hangout makes it feel like home. Very cozy, everything we needed was available and then some. I even came with my infant and had pack n play, highchair and gates for stairways provided which was a HUGE convenience. Every room was spacious, the place was very clean and your walking distance to town, shops & restaurants as well as the beach. Had a blissful 5 day stay, can't wait to head back!

Great location, amazing customer service!

  • 5 of 5

Myself and 11 other girls stayed at this property from Friday until Monday (in June) for my sister's bachelorette party. We arrived a bit earlier than our check in time and Daniel was very accommodating! He allowed us to go into the rental earlier and even helped with additional parking at another rental of his! There was a gift basket for us when we arrived with snacks and wine, which was so thoughtful. The home was in great condition and in perfect location to the beach and downtown shops, bars and restaurants. We walked everywhere we wanted to go, except to karaoke at Captain Curts (we took a few 6 person golf carts to get there which was super fun!!!) The rental has all of the beach towels, bath towels, linens, paper products, dishes and utensils needed which was super helpful since we flew in from out of state. Daniel even had enough beach chairs for all 12 of us girls and floating noodles that we could take to the beach! When I originally didnt see the chairs, I called Daniel and he offered to bring them over (although they were all right in the garage). The hospitality shown by him was so nice and thoughtful. He really was there to make our stay a great one. We had A BLAST and Siesta Key was beautiful. This place is a MUST STAY!! I recommend taking a sunset cruise through Siesta Key Water Sports. We had our own private boat and it comes with a full cooler of alcoholic drinks. The tour is about 2 hours long and was the peak of our trip!! Dinner at The Cottage was amazing and you must stop for a daiquiri at Daiquiri Deck! A few miles out is a restaurant called "A Taste of Germany". We stopped on our way out of town for breakfast. They make their own rum cakes which were to die for (you can even take them to go!). Breakfast sandwiches were also very good there. When checking out, Daniel sent me an email with instructions for check out, which was to do nothing but enjoy the last few hours in Siesta Key. This was so helpful, as normally rentals require at least some sort of clean up. I can't say enough good things about this property, the customer service from Daniel and Siesta Key. It was a GREAT Vacation!!

LOVE this place!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this house, can't wait to come back! Convenient to Village and beach. We walked everywhere. Daniel was extremely accommodating, found another location nearby for the rest of our group.....then remembered to contact us when the other side of the house opened up so we could all be at the same house. Good memory! :)
