About the Owner

Jim and Cindy Kaiser purchased this property in 2016. Cindy had worked for years with other rental properties on the island and decided this was too much work to do it for someone else. We recently sold our 4 unit bldg in the Village and have picked up this condo because the views took my breath away!!

Guestbook comments from the owner


Thanks for returning my deposit cheque to me.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our vacation at Next To The Best. The Condo was comfortable, clean and tidy and very good value for the money. The pool area was ideal for sunbathing or a swim. I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone who was thinking about a vacation in Siesta Key Village. The location was ideal, very close to the beach and the village, easy for shopping and dining.

We may be coming back to Siesta Key in March 2014. I would be very grateful if you could let me know the rates for your two bedroom condo in Next To The Best, also your three bedroom villa. We are looking at first four weeks in March but have not set our dates yet.

Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

This unit wasn't available so Cindy put us in the 2 bedroom. The condo was clean and the bed was comfortable. The location of nextothebest is THE BEST! We simply parked our car when we arrived and didn't drive until we needed to go to the airport. We could walk to town for shopping and dining and we could easily walk to the beach. Everyone was jealous of our wagon (provided) that we pulled with all the complimentary beach stuff like chairs, umbrellas and a cooler. We felt that we were at home! The pool was refreshing and the grill was nice to cook the fish we caught ourselves! Cindy and Jim were very nice and made everything very easy. We will be back!
