Take the time to enjoy the day while you walk along the beautiful cool white sands of Crescent Beach or swim in the clean warm gulf sea. Or if the sea is not your preference then you can swim in the lovely , heated , large , salt water pool with sun loungers for you to relax on, just one minute away from the villa. At the rear of the villa for your convenience is a shower to rinse off sand etc.

After a long travel day with a lot of trouble, it was a breath of fresh air to arrive at such a clean, welcoming place. Immediately what struck all of us was how clean and fresh it smelled. The beds were very welcoming and comfortable...just like home. It had everything we needed to make our vacation great including towels, chairs, toys and items for the kids to take to the beach, toys for them and a lovely garden area with fresh water to rinse off the salt and sand from a day at the beach. The forecast looked like rain but we got a lot of sunny days and the vacation could not have been better. We enjoyed every area possible of siesta key and plan on returning next year or sooner to do it again! We ate every breakfast and lunch at the villa and ate dinner out at night, but if we had stayed longer we would have enjoyed eating outside on the patio after using the grill provided. The location was very convenient and I wouldn't change a thing. All-in-all it was an amazing family vacation!
Our experience at the condo was wonderful! We rented out both sides of the duplex and it was perfect for a large group. I loved that there was a drug store, gas station, vegan raw bar and liquor store right across the street for easy convenience. The free taxis on siesta key are one of a kind and perfect for getting around.
The little yellow duplex was in the quiet end of siesta key. So perfect! A 7 min drive to the village area that ROCKS!!!... Just a 3 -4 min walk to the amazing white sand beach the never gets too hot to walk on. The water is beautiful there. The pool is nice and about a 2 min walk. 7/11 is right across the street. We were there twice a day to by snacks and beer and coffees. We had a rental car. But theres free shuttle rides, so u really don't need a car. Just tip the drivers. There is the funnest bar right across and down the street too. The sneaki tiki with live music! The duplex was tiny but perfect for 4 people. It did not have a tub tho. Only a shower. We sat on the front porch and had beers every night. The back yard is super tiny .... But if u have little kids it wd b fine. With a patio set and There is a grill back there if u want to cook. And there are beach umbrellas and beach toys and a couple beach chairs that SERIOUSLY NEED TO BE THROWN AWAY and replaced with new 15$ chairs. That was my only complaint!!.... great location. Very clean place. The island is also super clean. Rented a boat and went to private beaches Was amazing!!!!
Hi Cherie, Thanks for taking the time to leave your review. We are glad that you had a wonderful time at our Villa. We try our best to get everything right. Sorry about the chairs we are negotiating with Crescent Towers at the moment to be able to use their beach space, chairs and umbrellas and so had not renewed the chairs. As the negotiation is taking longer than we thought we have now renewed the chairs. We look forward to hosting you again soon. Thank you for everything! Derek and Marina
We stayed in Derek's home over the 4th of July weekend. There were four of us that stayed there.
The home was warm, clean and centrally located to everything. He had all the beach accessories we needed. Chairs, umbrellas, cooler, towels. We would highly recommend this spot and renting from Derek.
He did a great job responding to all of our questions! Thanks for sharing your Siesta Key place with us! What a beautiful destination!!!!
Derek's home was wonderful. It's very convenient to drug store, food, and a few bars. There is a water hose in the front and back to rinse off the sand before entering the house...which is great if you have kids.
Overall our stay was very pleasant and relaxing.
Derek's place was just what we needed--so convenient to the beaches, stores, bike, kayak rentals, and my niece's wedding. The kitchen was adequately equipped and Derek and his representative most helpful.
The bomb !!!! We had a great time . Met Derek what a great host responded to every request. Perfect beach place. Great beds great shower. Will visit again !!!

About the Host, Derek
I try and do everything to the best of my ability and achieve perfection where possible. I have tried to create a happy home with all the comforts of a real home. I love plants and trees and have landscaped my properties so that my guests get the ''tropical'' feel when they sit around relaxing outside. I want guests to feel happy and comfortable when they stay :-)
