About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 10 Sleeps

Our Top Location, Gertrude's Village House! Named for our grandmother who traveled the world until age of 91 but always insisted this street on Siesta Key was the place she loved best. Leave the car behind. Gertrude's is richly furnished, perfectly nestled between the best beaches, shopping and dining on the Island, and sure to provide a combination of fun and rejuvenation you won't find in other getaways. Generously decorated with billowing linen drapes and an abundance of handmade rugs, pillows and artwork. Our living room, master bedroom and mother in law suite each flow onto private patios for indoor and outdoor dining and relaxation. You can take your time under the brightly colored pagoda on the patio, wander one block on a quiet tropical street to your beach for panoramic views of the gulf to the North-West-and-South, follow a private footpath to the village for the best fresh oysters, fish, tropical drinks, ice cream and entertainment on the island, or just laze in our lush bedding which includes W-Hotel pillow-top mattresses, high thread count 100% cotton sheets and plentiful pillows in firm, medium and soft.

Your nearest beach, appropriately named Sunset Beach by residents and initiated guests alike, has the most picturesque views on the island and the best sunsets on our coast. When I was young, my grandmother would take me there and swim out so far we could barely see her yellow flowered bathing cap! Today, we laze float and wade there in the calm crystal clear gulf water with my children. We usually take a short swim to Sand Dollar Island. Shaped by the tides, this island is a naturally occurring white sand cay popular with dolphins, sand dollars, conch and hermit crabs. It's the only one of it's kind on the key.

Wonderful vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Our family arrive for a Thanksgiving vacation and had a wonderful time. We visited the beach every day with beach chairs and umbrellas that were plentiful. We were close to dinning and shopping but most of all we had a relaxing and great stay.

Amazing stay in Siesta!

  • 5 of 5

The location of the house couldn't be better. It's a short walk to the beach, bars/ restaurants, and grocery store. The host was so nice and quickly answered my questions. It made my day when he emailed the day before checkout practically begging us not to clean the house so we could keep enjoying our vacation. I hope to stay here again !

Gertrude's rentals are wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Although we had a hang-up with our original rental, Daniel with Gertrude Rentals was ahead of the game and very accommodating. My family had a great time staying in his property and would absolutely rent with him again. Property was clean and well stocked with towels, linens, and kitchen supplies. There was even some laundry detergent to get us started. I would highly recommend renting through Gertrude Rentals as Daniel and his properties are a great way to spend time in Siesta Key.

PERFECT WEEKEND GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5

We had 10 people in our group and this cute house perfectly fit us all! It was in the prime location for the beach, restaurants, and beach bars. Daniel was amazing to work with and extremely accommodating. He was quick to answer emails with any questions or concerns we had throughout our stay. We would highly recommend any of his properties. Especially this one in Siesta Key!

Cozy, tasteful, convenient spot

  • 5 of 5

This house is so nicely furnished, very eclectic. Cozy and comfy. Clean and well-maintained. Lots of space to relax outdoors. Adequate kitchen, uncluttered with just what you need. Nice towels and linens. Everything was classy in this place, but comfy at the same time. So conveniently located--quick walk to the beach and dinner. Owner was very responsive to any questions. Felt like we were staying at a friends' place.
