About the property

Studio, 0 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 2 Sleeps

An enviable location just steps away from everything! The Siesta Key Village Studio is an accommodating ground floor, one-room efficiency apartment perfectly nestled on a quiet tropical street between the best beaches, shopping and dining on the island. Wander one block to your beach, appropriately named Sunset Beach by residents and initiated guests alike. Laze, float or wade in the crystal clear Gulf water or take a short swim to Sand Dollar Island. Shaped by the tides, the island is a naturally occurring white sand cay, the only one of its kind on the Key. Having forgotten all your worries, stroll one block to the Siesta Key Village for a wonderful shopping and dining experience. Start with an iced coffee at Lelu's or go for drinks, live music and fresh seafood at the Siesta Key Oyster Bar, Gilligan's, the Daiquiri Deck or any one of a dozen satisfying restaurants nearby. After your meal, indulge in home-made ice cream at Big Olaf's or see Blake at Califlorida for a paddle board or bike rental. Sunset Beach is popular with dolphins - my daughter and I meet one or more of them almost every visit. Be sure you are on the beach for an unparalleled sunset. With 280 degree views to the South West and North, Sunset Beach has the most picturesque sunsets on the coast! We promise!

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 studio in 2011

Nice location

  • 3 of 5

Great location since 5 minutes' walk to a great breakfast/lunch place, Bonjour Cafe, as well as all the Siesta Key Village restos and shops. 5 or so minutes in the other direction gets you to the Beach Access 4 path and the beautiful expanse of Siesta Beach, perfect! Very small studio in a shady patio garden that can use a bit of taming. (Tree bits constantly fall on your patio table so have to watch while you eat), but not a big deal since the garden was lovely, even has a water fountain in the front entrance. Resident (owner?, not sure) next door was so lovely and kind, and loves animals (has a sweet dog and cat). Room has great a/c and bed is comfortable, kitchen works well, shower can use a redo of new tile. With taxes and fees, the place came out to over $140 a night so seems high for October, but nice nonetheless.

Perfect Getaway

This was the perfect accommodation for my dog and I to get way for a couple of days. Perfectly appointed with everything I needed and then some. Daniel was super nice and informative. I will be going back often!

Great place! Great location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent our honeymoon/one year wedding anniversary in this adorable studio apartment! The location is perfect. You're within steps to the beach and all the amazing restaurants in the village. We've stayed in several places in Siesta Key and this was by far our favorite! We will definitely book here again!

Great location, it fit two of us and our dogs. Not a lot of extra space but we were out most of our stay. Highly recommend for a great vacation!

Clean, quiet, great location and reasonable price

  • 5 of 5

Dan was great to deal with. Unit was as described and pictured. Small but adequate for two people, very clean and quiet. Only 4 units in gated complex. Owner left welcome basket with wine, coffee and snacks, also shampoo, lotion, etc. plenty of towels. Bed was comfortable and firm enough for good nights sleep. The location can't be beat, as stated by previous guests. Perfect for any couple looking for accommodations near beach and in the heart of siesta key village. Thank you Dan!

Great locale for the price

  • 3 of 5

Location, location, location. Located halfway between beach and the bars/restaurants, it is great for those that do not wish to drive anywhere. The actual beach is GORGEOUS and very serene. Plenty of restaurants to choose from for breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks. We really enjoyed being able to stumble home without complication. Our biggest disappointment was in the room itself. You get what you pay for and that was apparent with the condition of the mattress. The shower head was broken and I had to duck to get under it. We did not use the kitchen but we did spot some unwelcome guests crawling around. The overall cleanliness was good but not great, it smelled a little damp. We really liked our stay and it was very economical.
