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.

8 steps to Paradise

Enjoyed my stay there and couldn't have been more pleased. Daniel was a pleasure to deal with and the accommodations were perfect for a short getaway on Siesta key. I would definitely stay there again when I'm back in Sarasota

Charming & Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Very clean and easy to locate. Plenty of towels, beach toys, and beach accessories. Beach access was within a very short walk. Very nice neighborhood. The only downfall was you could hear the other guests in the adjacent unit, walls seemed very thin. The outdoor property was well kept.

Lovely mini paradise!!

  • 5 of 5

Wow-- we had a great time! This unit is perfect for two individuals. The unit provides everything you need from a equipped kitchen to towels. Beach access is a two minute walk. All of the main attractions are 10-15 minute drive. I can't wait to come back and I would 100% recommend this place to anyone!! Thank you, Dan!!

Fantastic find - no reason why not to come back!

  • 5 of 5

This was a fantastic find! The location couldn't have been any better. We were just steps from the beautiful Crescent Beach. We stayed in Unit "C" which had everything we needed. This upper level unit satisfied our needs for our family of 3. We were only a short distance from many restaurants and shops. We utilized the grill that was available on the ground level as well as the large table for our dinners. This property is located on a quiet street and was surrounded by many other well-maintained homes. The interior was very clean and updated as was the exterior of the building. The kitchen was well equipped for our cooking needs. The linens were plentiful and of good quality. There were many beach toys for kids available. There were also beach towels and chairs provided. Having a washer and dryer (no cost, just provide your own soap) available on the ground level (shared by others staying on the property) was a nice option. The owner was very helpful and the reserving and checkout process was simple. In addition, the owner also supplied us with a detailed packet of information of not only the property, but the area - very helpful! We can't think of any reason why not to come back!
