Overview

About the property

Studio, 0 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 2 Sleeps

An enviable location just steps away from everything! Brought to you by Gertrude Rentals. 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

Wonderful place, in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Siesta Village Studio. The location was absolutely perfect, and the gift basket with wine and water upon our arrival was most appreciated. The unit was clean and the amenities (beach towels and chairs) were used happily. Very easy walk to beach and village...never needed to get in the car. We can't wait to go back, and we will definitely stay here again. Thanks for a great 3 days, Daniel. 😊�

Little slice of paradise

  • 5 of 5

Hubby and I came in for a short get a way from Tampa. We were very happy with the place! A little smaller than we envisioned but fit our needs perfectly! We even brought our dog and crate. It rained a lot while we were there but the bed was extremely comfortable and we binged watched movies. Definitely will rent from here again!

THE place to stay in Siesta Key!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the Village Studio and we loved it even more than our first stay! It's the perfect place for a romantic getaway! It's within walking distance of the village and the beach. We stayed six nights and only moved our car twice! Daniel is a fantastic host and we plan to stay at one of his properties every time we visit in the future!

Honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

I booked this place sight unseen as I have never been to Siesta Key but wanted a quaint place for my husband and me for our honeymoon. It was everything we needed! It does advertise that it's small and when I walked in, I was a bit nervous because the front door actually hit the bed. But I have got to say, it was PERFECT for us!!!!! We flew in from Sarasota and the reason I picked Siesta Key is that we could take a cab from the airport. We did not need a car AT ALL on this vacation! (We stayed for 6 nights). Every day we walked to the village for our meals and to the grocery store if needed. Everyday, we walked to the beach! Twice, we took the free trolley to check out the rest of the area, including the main beach and Turtle Beach. Our beach (access 4) was private and less crowded than the main beaches which is exactly what we needed. One day, we chilled out on the patio. The chairs and table were perfectly in the shade under a gorgeous tree. There is an umbrella and beach chairs for guests use which was great. I loved our little cottage!! Thank you!!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

The studio was clean and had everything we needed. The beach was close and the restaurants and stores were also. We loved the privacy of our beach area. Check in and check out was super easy. I was a little nervous at first because of the small size of the studio but it turned out to be just perfect! The outdoor living patio extended our vacation space. I loved that the laundry was free and right outside our back door. My favorite vacation spot to date! Thank you!
