Very sweet beach cottage
5/5 stars
Our family of 5 had a lovely time here. Clean and cozy with a huge backyard for our pooch (could have used some more/updated porch furniture) and nice pool. In a quiet neighborhood but still very close to beach and the village. Would definitely come back again!

Nice clean house within short walking distance to Siesta Key Beach. House is supplied with plenty of kitchen supplies for cooking and beach/pool supplies, even toys for young children. Management team was great to communicate with regarding any issues that we had, very quick response. Would definitely stay here again, it was a great vacation!

Great spot and service
5/5 stars
This was our 2nd trip to Siesta Key,but the first time we stayed here. It won't be the last! The house was as advertised with one bedroom suite at the opposite end of the house from the other bedrooms. Perfect for those late sleepers! Had a couple of very minor maintenence issues on arrival, but Itrip personnel sent Roy over within 20 minutes and he immediately took care of the issues. Couldn't ask for better service from the owner, Itrip and Roy!! Great place, great service -what more.can you ask for!!!

Great house!
5/5 stars
We absolutely loved this house in Siesta Key. The location couldn’t have been better and it was clean and spacious. We loved the pool area and how private it is. My dog loved the fenced in back yard as well. There were plenty of pool toys and the house was well stocked. It was clean and inviting. If we are ever in the area again, I hope it is available. I would give it more than 5 stars if I could!

Sibling trip
5/5 stars
5 siblings spent week in Driftwood on Siesta Key. Plenty of room. Very clean. Pool area is beautiful. Plenty of pool seating, floats, beach towels, even outdoor shower. Well equipped kitchen, beds were very comfortable. House was spotless. We had 2 minor questions about how to operate tv and pool spa. Management responded to text within minutes. Reservations and checkin were smooth. Siesta Beach is a few steps away. We walked there everyday and sometimes took night walks to beach. We will use itrip again. You won’t be sorry. Thanks for a memorable vacation. 5 stars

This home is perfect. Perfect location. Nice private pool area. It's loaded with everything you need for starting right at the home or going to the minute, which is literally a 7 minute away to the actual water. The staff are quick to respond and help in anyway. It's just perfecf

Vacation Accommodations
3/5 stars
I upgraded the review, because this organization did make things right. I received a credit for the purchase of the grill and a little compensation for our trouble. Since the situation was properly handled we will be back. Great set up and location for the house. The lay-out of the house is nice, but past that it stops there. We had to fix 2 different door knobs just to be able to use the door out back and to a bedroom. We booked the trip for 10 nights and didn't get to use the 2nd shower in the house until we'd been here 7 nights. The water was scalding hot and burnt my daughter in law the first time she tried to use it. The pool has been un-swimmable for the first 8 days of our trip. It was apparently running heat the entire time so temperature has been at 104 and also something else was wrong. Additionally, the grill that was supposed to be functional was broken so I purchased a $100 charcoal grill so we had something to cook on. The shower head in the master bath is broken so good luck getting a steady stream of water. So far, no efforts have been made to compensate us or even apologize for all of the inconveniences and issues we've experienced. They did fix the shower and pool, but again, the majority of our trip was spent without. One of our main requests when booking was that we had a pool and at least 2 baths.

Perfect Siesta Beach Vacation Home

This is a gem of a place to stay. A quick walk to one of the most gorgeous beaches and close to the charming Siesta village. A spacious well equipped and comfortable home. The home is clean, bright and cheery. Great backyard too! I highly recommend this for your next vacation to Siesta Key.
