OUR TOP LOCATION! Gertrude's Village House

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Sep 7, 2016
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.

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.

  • 5 of 5

Gertrude's Village House was the perfect accommodation for our vacation. Clean and well maintained, the location was awesome being just a short walk to the beach and all of the restaurants & shops with it's private access through the backyard. Check in/check out process was simple and easy, Daniel was responsive and accommodating, and a big thank you for the bicycles!! We all really enjoyed our stay and had a blast!! We will return!

Perfection on Siesta Key

  • 5 of 5

Gertrude's Village House is quite simply the perfect spot on Siesta Key. On a quiet side street, it's literally steps from the quaint village and a few minutes' walk from Siesta's pristine white beaches. Neat as a pin and very attractive, the house was ideal for our party of seven (3 adults and 4 kids). In fact, the décor is far and above the typical beach rental - the mattresses are super-comfy, the living area furniture both attractive and comfy, the kitchen updated and stocked with quality essentials, and the pictures of Gertrude around the house made us feel as if we were staying in a good friend's own home. To top it all off, the owner Daniel is a gracious, attentive host who bends over backwards to make your stay fantastic in every way. From stocking the house with plenty of beach chairs and towels to providing soap for the laundry, the amenities are better than a typical beach rental, too.

My recommendation: show up with nothing more than your bathing suit, flip flops, and a cover-up (to throw on when you head over to The Cottage patio for a mojito and wonton tuna tacos), and stay as long as you can. :)

Excellent location

  • 5 of 5

The biggest draw to this home is its location. It is 1/2 block from the beach and 1 block from Siesta Key Village where the restaurants and shops are. It is also very convenient to the main road to the mainland. The house is immaculate and clean. The owner immediately took care of a few small issues we had (a light didn't turn on in the bedroom and vacuum cleaner didn't work.) The kitchen is small, good for making quick meals but not good for any major cooking. We had 6 people staying in the home for 4 days (5 adults and one child) and the home was plenty big for the short time we spent inside. There is also a small backyard that worked good for the child to run around in while the rest of us were getting ready to go out. I would highly recommend it!
