we were the second time in this apartment home and we love it. It has a really nice location 2 minutes walk to the beach and the heated pool in the winter is great. The owner offers also free bicycles and beach accessories to use, so we didn't have to carry a lot with us. Great stay and we would...

The location was outstanding a 2 min walk to the beach and a 12 minute walk to the Villages. Our stay was so relaxing. Virginia was incredibly helpful especially on her great restauran recommendationst and doggie beach. I am already planning my next visit with friends and family to The Gumbo Limbo.

We were underwhelmed by our experience there. Booked the place largely on the basis of Tripadvisor very good previous reviews. Unfortunately for us that wasn't our experience. This review is for the Island Suite - I can't comment on the other units on the property. First, it has an excellent location to the beach - just a short walk. It's...

I booked a 3-night stay at Gumbo Limbo with my husband and our infant son. I discovered Gumbo Limbo on TripAdvisor, and so I feel it's imperative to include my review. In one word, it was "perfect". Not only is the location convenient (only steps away from one of the most beautiful beaches in the U.S. and a short walk...

If you want to stay in Siesta Key the way it was meant to be, than Gumbo Limbo is the place. Spacious accomodations, a beautiful pool, very close to the best beach in the state of Florida, and the most helpful staff ever. I wouldn't stay anywhere else when traveling to Siesta Key.

I grew up in Sarasota and worked on Siesta Key when I was a teenager. I came in for my class reunion and wanted to relax on the beach. I found Gumbo Limbo and fell in love with the place. We only needed a 1 bedroom but only had the 3 bedroom 2 bath place available. The owner offer us...

Gumbo Limbo was a great getaway for our family. The accommodations were great. We stayed in a condo that comfortably held our family of six. The beds were great and so was the view!

I stayed at Gumbo Limbo for five nights. Together, there were 12 of us and we rented two condos. The condos were clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. We were all impressed with the location. It was great to be within 2 minutes of the beach. I would highly recommend this location and would definitely go back again!

We really had a great time at Gumbo Limbo. I can not believe how quiet it was at night and very restful. The property is very nice and so close to the Village and public beach. We still marvel at the powered sugar white sand beach. Every day the beach is cleaned and power groomed. We enjoyed our walks on...
