Our vacation on Siesta Key was outstanding thanks to this bungalow style property. Five of us stayed in the largest unit on the property, which featured three bedrooms. One with a comfy king size mattress, another with two double beds, and the third featured a nice pullout couch. The unit was equipped with a full size fridge and a very...

The Sunset Suite (unit 6) was great. We had a wonderful stay in a private and very quiet room right on the lagoon. Our room was clean, comfortable, and just what we wanted for our vacation. If you are looking for an affordable vacation to Siesta Key with a comfortable place to stay that won't break the bank then look...

The Sunset Room was fabulous! We have an awesome view of the water. It was very quiet, as we were separate from the other guests. The kitchen was large and very well stocked. We loved the kayaks and enjoyed walks down to the beach and restaurants. The walks were great for us because we like to exercise. The restaurants are...

This was, by far, the best mini vacation I've had. I stayed at the Beachside resort in the Tropical. Though its not directly on the beach, its just a short walk. The resort is adorable, clean, fully stocked with everything you might need. The Tropical has a small balcony perfect for sitting and watching the world go by. The property...

We stayed at the Banana Bay Club for a family celebration in August and had the best time. The rooms are like mini homes and we had all the utensils to make our family's favorite dishes! The layout of the entire place was just so conducive for that "at home" feeling. We had so much fun, our next get together...

Excellent place to stay after a hectic week at Disney World. The Banana Bay Club is minutes away from all the Sarasota attractions in a quiet neighborhood with beautiful water views. Be sure to visit the Mote Aquarium and take one of their wonderful Bay cruises. Another must see is the Ringling Mansion and their Circus Museum and the John...

I stayed in unit 4 (Sanddollar) for three nights. They were a little squirrelly about the rate. I paid $129/night. But their web site said $115/night. Their response was that $115 was the "low season" rate. (If July isn't the low season, I don't know what is!) Anyway, at either price it's a reasonable deal for the money. Sanddollar is...
