Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 10 Sleeps

Our Top Location, Gertrude's Village House! Brought to you by Gertrude Rentals. 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.

Place was run down some. Needed painting, some things were broken, plumbing backed up in sinks, tub

  • 2 of 5

Location was convenient to shops and restaurants but access to beach was not as advertised. Was easily a 15 minute walk through bug infested marsh to get to beach. We ended up driving to the much nicer public beach 15 min away by car. Kitchen was very small (only 1 at a time) could fit. Reno in kitchen was poorly done. Bathrooms needed updating. No shower caddies made it hard to use shower supplies. Washer and dryer in unit was nice. Large outside table was good as well. With so many choices to rent in Siesta Key this unit needs work to inspire people to stay there. No pool or hot tub either. Mosquitoes were vicious while we were there. Bring lots of bug spray!

Owner's Response: I'm always excited when I get an alert for a new review. In this case, I only wish this guest had mentioned any of these things, except for the mosquitoes which are a part of island life, while they were here so I could've addressed them. Superior responsivity is an important part of our success. For example, I'm responding at 7AM to a review made it at 2AM today. The slow drain has been taken care of and was caused by a small sand shovel someone flushed down the toilet. The guest currently staying at this property just mentioned the slow drain “casually” in passing and we took care of it in less than 30 minutes. We also gladly provide things like shower caddies upon request, even if they aren’t standard in all the units. The guest is absolutely correct, the kitchen is not large, as you can see in the listing photographs, but it has a breakfast bar and is fully appointed with full sized appliances. The kitchen isn’t the reason this property is an overwhelming guest favorite. This property is in the best location on the island, is adorably decorated, and has wonderful wraparound patios. There are 11 five star reviews before and there will be more to come. Our other websites have hundreds or five star positive reviews. Please take a look at our other travel reviews, we are very proud of them :-)

Great girl trip weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Six of us stayed at Gertrude's House and we all agreed it was the best spot for a girls weekend. Daniel was so easy to work with and very accommodating. He was quick to respond to all our needs. One was the need for more wineglasses....a quick email and wineglasses were delivered the next morning! He also was great about check out and check in times. The house was clean and the house was absolutely adorable. Plenty of room inside and out to stretch out, but also intimate to have great conversation around the living room. We most enjoyed that the town was steps away. We ate at a few of the yummy restaurants and had fun dancing a few of the many bars that had live bands. The beach is down the street (can see if from street at the front side of the house). The beach is beautiful white sand and not overly crowded. Sunsets to die for! The beach is very wide so it does take some time to get down to the water, so keep in mind if someone in your party has limited mobility, however, there are tons of beaches around you could simply drive to for better parking lot to beach access. On Sunday night there is a "Drum Circle" at one of the main beaches - it was a cool experience and would recommend. We also took a boat ride down the Inter-coastal with Key Life Charters and that was a lot of fun, too. We were all sad to leave, but plan on making another trip Gertrude's in the near future. We all loved it!

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 !
