Overview

About the property

Best Location on the Island, Studio, 0 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 2

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 Gertrude Rentals - Siesta, VT, NJ Shore, and NYC

Gertrude Vacation Rentals is dedicated to “Gertrude Van-Lopik Jones”, an early pioneer of both adventure and life experience travel, vigorous lover of life, and model for standing above the everyday.

Gertrude Rentals has 20 seriously sweet vacation rentals, both budget and luxury options, in all my favorite locations; Siesta Key, Spring Lake NJ (aka “The Irish Riviera”), NYC, and now the Green Mountain National Forest of VT. I never manage properties I don't own and each Gertrude Rentals property has been hand-selected, remodeled, and appointed with the comfort and enjoyment of my guests in mind.

During the last 7 seasons, I’ve had the pleasure of hosting over 4,000 vacations for groups and individuals, and received thousands of 5-star reviews. I’ve hosted; engagements weddings and honeymoons, 100th birthday parties and 70th anniversary parties, bachelors and bachelorette trips, homecomings for students and for soldiers, vacations for in-recovery adolescent cancer patients and their families, post-op housing for an anonymous kidney donor and a lung transplant recipient, yoga and wellness retreats, single parents traveling alone with kids, family reunions, empty nester getaways, and many others. All of them had one thing in common, they were in search of a well deserved vacation from an owner who understands their vacation time is precious.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Great location - steps from Siesta Key Village with all the dining, shopping and live music you could ask for. A few minutes walk to the beautiful beach and the provided beach towels and chairs make it oh so easy. The studio was cozy and comfortable with everything we needed for a short stay. If you want to be close to everything and plan on making the most of your days and nights on Siesta Key this is the perfect location! Yay!

Absolutely loved it!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This little studio was perfect for my husband and me. We live in New England, and were looking for a nice place near the beach, to escape from the cold. We got very lucky when we found this place.

It is quite small, but had everything we needed. Very clean, lots of extra towels, beach chairs and beach towels. Even a nice welcome gift basket with wine and crackers. A really nice touch!

We were about a two minute walk to either the beach, or the village.

The beach is absolutely amazing! Beautiful soft white sand, and beautiful sunsets!

The village has everything you need. Restaurants, bars, shops, grocery store, even free transportation around the island. No need to get in your car until you're on your way home.

Also the year round neighbors are great. Although they have nothing to do with the studio, other than living next door, they are very friendly and helpful. Easy to talk to. They made our stay even more memorable!

I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a fun, relaxing, beach vacation!

And we hope to come back again!

Mr. Daniel Jones,

Just letting you know we are checked out of your place. We had a wonderful time in Siesta Key and enjoyed our stay. Thank you for the special touches we found in the room.

Wanted to mention the neighbors on each side of you to say they were friendly and helpful. We felt warmly welcomed.

Thanks again

Sincerely,

Too small.

Great location but much too small to stay for nine days. A few updates could be made for comfort.

A nice place, such as it is

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I spent more than a week at the Village Studio. It was as pictured and as described. It is clean, adequate, full of everything anyone might want. Also, when problems arose, the owner was a phone call away, pleasant to speak to, and responsive. During our stay, a fellow came by to check on things - very nice - and then came back with some lightbulbs.

We enjoyed our walks along the beach and through downtown, both very close. The outside area is simply stunning, a nice place to sit, maintained by a couple who live in this little complex of four, attached units behind a gate on a quiet street. The couple who take care of the outside were really gracious, friendly, charming people.

Are there drawbacks? Not really, except for the size of the studio apartment, which is quite small. The bed is just inside the sweep of the opened door. But anyone renting this nice place should know that coming in. Also, the cleaning folks should do the windows, especially over the sink.

Overall, a nice place, in a beautiful setting. Maybe thought could be given to a sleep sofa or Murphy bed to create more living area and somewhere to comfortably sit down and read inside, not always on the bed.
