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!

Very nice rental

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed Siesta Key immensely! This house had more than enough space to suite our needs. It was comfortable and quiet. It is a duplex, but we never heard our neighbors despite them having a large group! Our dogs enjoyed the back yard too! It was a short walk to the beach and the nightlife. The agent who helped us with our booking was very accommodating. I would highly recommend.

Great location but are things that need addressing

  • 4 of 5

First, if you're expecting this to be a house you're renting...it is not. And with that said, the parking is very minimal, as it it shared with other units. The rental is pretty much exactly as pictured, but for the price, the threadbare towels and sheets need to be replaced. The carpet has definitely seen better days, but I get it....it's a rental. And a beach one at that. There was also no DVD player and the television is more complicated to work than it's worth. The sleeping quarters are ample and the surrounding business establishments are what make this location so great! The free taxi is such a huge bonus as well. I would have been completely satisfied had there been a little more attention to the little things, that would add just a touch of luxury without much effort, and made me feel as though the cost per night was worthy.

Casa Van Lopik is AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Siesta Keyes with my family of 10! It was simply AMAZING. Casa Van Lopik was exactly as it was described and then when you walk in, your jaw drops to see it for real! Daniel and his crew are outstanding. This was the first time we had ever rented a home for vacation and it was absolutely seamless. My advice...just read and follow the directions! Everything is spelled out for you in the emails received and the handbook created! We could not have been more happy and more pleased with our experience. We will MOST DEFINITELY rent from Daniel and the team again. We are planning next summer as I type! Don't hesitate, book with Gertrude Rentals NOW!

Nice location but very dated and in need of maintenance.

  • 3 of 5

We had a good time with it being located close to beach, shopping, and restaurants. Property really needs some TCL and maintenance. Tubs need caulking , skillets are so warped very difficult to cook on, dishwasher broke as soon as I pulled top tray out it came off and fell. Ice make never worked in freezer the whole 4 days. Too much money for what we got.

Absolutely Phenomal in Every Way!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful stay at Casa Van Lopik! This unit is amazing. The decor is delightfully beachy and tasteful, everything was spotless at our arrival, and the location simply can't be beat. A short walk to a fully stocked grocery store, a liquor store, Siesta Key Village (with many shops, restaurants, and bars), and the beach. We had 8 people in the home and there was more than enough room. The large open common area made for a great gathering place. Last but not least, the best part of this rental is the owner. Daniel went out of his way to make us feel at home and to accommodate our requests. He truly went above and beyond for us and made our stay that much more special and relaxing. We absolutely intend to stay in his properties again and would give him and his home the highest recommendation.
