Originally from Canada (and vacationing on Siesta Key since I was a young child, lucky enough to have family who owned beach houses here) I moved here permanently in 2009, to join my husband, Jim, whom I met on the same beach a few years earlier! I've thoroughly enjoyed the unexpected transition from college prof to vacation property owner/manager, and can't say I miss the snow and ice.
We have three great villas, side-by-side, single-story, each with its own garden patio. It's just a 2 or 3 minute walk from the villa door to our lovely, salt-water pool and our private, gated beach access. We lived in Villa #1 for ten months and loved everything about the relaxed, beach lifestyle. It was great fun remodeling the three villas, trying to get everything wonderfully right for our future guests - and we hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did.
