I stayed at this property because my mom sold her condo in Sarasota and ended up in the hospital the next day. I had to find something on short notice. Leslie was was very responsive and very flexible in working with me when I needed to extend the stay a couple times. It's not the Ritz, but if you don't mind a few things being a bit dated, and are looking for a quiet place across the street from the public beach on Siesta Key (half a block from the street, so it doesn't have a view of the Gulf), it's a great place. Just a handful of cottages, so it's quiet, and we've had the pool to ourselves a lot. You can walk to the Village or take one of the free golf carts (tips only) or the free trolley. We stayed in the Dolphin unit, switch I describe as an open concept cottage with a small kitchen, bath (shower only - no tub), king bed (comfortable), sofabed, dining table and desk. It was nice to be able to enjoy the pool a little while given that I was working remotely and trying to take care of my mom. Leslie also has plenty of beach towels and carts to take her beach chairs and umbrellas over to the beach. There is also a tiki bar at the pool with a small pool, so if you want to take a six pack, you don't have to walk back to the cottage to fetch another one. She also has a gas grille for guest use.

Perfect location for enjoying the beach and village on Siesta Key. If you don’t need fancy but value clean, well-stocked and comfortable accommodations, that won’t break the bank, this spot can’t be beat. Resident hostess Leslie provides all the right touches.

Location, location, location! Literally a walk across the street to the beach. Pool is nice amenity and was empty during our stay. Clean place and it was nice to have access to laundry, beach towels, etc. Host was very kind. We were a little confused on where to put our recycle, might clarify with Host as we are used to rolling bins. Only downside was Ac was a window unit. We were there two nights and it did get cool enough to rest but was still pretty warm (again we arrived on same day notice). Would be a great place to stay a week and enjoy each life. Wishes we had more time.

Thanks for the heads up about the recycle confusion. That information is on the welcome letter. I'll take a look at it to make sure its clear enough. The a/c was off during the hurricane and that building was also without power for a week. We had just turned it back on right before your arrival, so it was dealing with a lot of extra humidity and a higher temperature than usual, with heat index of around 100, it is a lot for wall units to cool within a short time. We usually leave it on a energy saver setting even when no guests are in it so it doesn't take long to cool the room. If you decide to stay with us again in the future, I suggest taking our Starfish cottage, which will also give you a king bed and central a/c.

The Dolphin is a large studio apartment that comfortably fits 4. Nice location in a quiet area. It's an older apartment with older appliances/furnishings, but it works great for a simple beach getaway. Great communication by the owner and super easy check in and check out!

Jodie, Thank you for taking the time to let us know about a few items that need our attention. We have plans to do a few updates and I had already purchased some of the items you mentioned but have not been able to schedule the work to be done yet. After Labor Day I am going to be able to get in there and have some maintenance completed. We have recently painted a good portion of the studio, refinished the terrazzo floor which will be sealed soon, we have replaced some small appliances and new fixtures for the bath already purchased but waiting for enough time open to be installed. Thank you for your comments, Leslie

The beach place was wonderful! We stayed in the Dolphin cottage which was perfect for our family of four. The beach is right across the street and saves the hassle of parking at Siesta Beach. We had a very late check in and Leslie didn't have a problem with that. She also provides beach towels and sheets, beach toys, umbrellas and chairs which was great! The pool on the property was perfect for late night swims after dinner. It's very close to town, even walkable. Thank you for being a great host! We will return!

Was the perfect location for beach access! We had everything we needed for our stay, it was nice to have beach towels and chairs provided so we didn't have to bring them ourselves. The pool was nice for a quick dip to cool off after spending all day at the beach. The hosts and even the other guests were friendly and helpful our entire stay. I hope to be back next year!

Owner and operator of the Beach Place since 1999. I have been on Siesta Key since the early 70's and know Siesta Key and the surrounding areas very well. I am happy to offer dining and site seeing tips depending on our guests interests. I can also offer suggestions for day trips. The Beach Place cottages have been available as rentals since the early 60's, I am interested in preserving Siesta Key's "Old Florida Charm" so that visitors may experience the type of place that made Siesta Key famous. We are one of the few original rental properties still operating just steps from our world famous sand. I am available to help our guests almost any time since I live on site.
