Quiet and Pleasant
5/5 stars
We liked the house's homey style, and its size was perfect for 3 of us. The neighbors were quiet and pleasant. Loved the location! Even though it's not within walking distance to the beach (because of the condos across the street), it's real close to everything & feels like you're right in the thick of everything, yet in a quiet alcove that is slightly removed from the noise & traffic.

Hello, Loretta was wonderful person and company for our mini vacation. We enjoyed our stay at Polynesian Gardens on Siesta Key. Beautiful lush landscape. We loved walking to the pier and watching the birds and the boats. The home was clean and good size. Lovely lania and backyard. Everyone was friendly, pool perfect! Being by the gulf water is so..relaxing! We would stay there again Sincerely, Kathleen

A gem for beach lovers!
5/5 stars
This place is a gem for beach lovers. It is perfectly designed for the needs of a family of four. Check-in was seamless. The place was exactly as described - charming. You will love your time at Loretta's place if you are looking for a truly relaxing beach getaway. We used her beach chairs every day. Our kids loved the entertainment options. We went to four different beaches (Siesta Key Beach, Turtle Beach, Crescent Beach, Lido Key Beach) during our time here and every one of them felt like the best beach. Siesta Key beach is full of life. We witnessed the Drum Circle in action on the Sunday we arrived and it was an awesome welcome party. The public beach access 12 to Crescent Beach is about 0.5 miles away from Loretta's place so we walked approximately 11 minutes to this beach. This was a home away from home for us.
