“February Monthlong Vacation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2012

We loved our stay at the Beach House! The owner and staff are very accommodating, personable and helpful (we received a print-out each week of the many many activities going on in the Sarasota/Siesta Key area). We loved being walking distance to the beach, with access across the street, and only a 3-block walk to the public Siesta Key Beach, so it was easy to attend free yoga-on-the-beach several mornings a week. It is an equally easy walk in the other direction to Siesta Key Village - great restaurants, bars, shops, and for longer visitors, salons, a post office, and a grocery. The Beach House itself is very well maintained, very clean, cheerful, up-to-date decor, fully equipped with appliances, cooking and housekeeping items. The beach motif is pleasant and it is obvious they are continually enhancing what started as an old building, making it convenient and modern. We were also able to work well because of their high quality wi fi connection. We've already booked the unit for next year!

Pros: The apartments are clean and roomy with a television in each bedroom and in the main living area. Spacious dining area and breakfast bar. It's a five minute walk to the beach (longer if carrying beach chairs). Kelsey in the office is very helpful and friendly. There are nice personal touches in the rooms on arrival - coffee, tea, microwave popcorn, candy canes (we arrived X-mas eve) etc. Kitchens are well-equipped with full-size appliances.

Cons: It can be noisy - this is an old building and sound passes easily through the windows so you can hear every word of your neighbours' conversation on their balcony. Also, although updated, this is an old building and that should inform your expectations. A couple of the slats on the venetian blinds in the guest bedroom were missing so we had to improvise with a blanket to obtain the appropriate degree of privacy. Finally, avoid the temptation to use the Rival electric juicer in your suite which gave off a rather unpleasant smelling smoke when we tried it.

Room Tip: We stayed in 529 Beach Road which is the upper level of the duplex. The Beach House's website pi...

The ringling beach house met all of our expectations. The history and quaintness of the beach house made it the perfect choice for our stay. The rooms were clean, updated, and fully equipped. No worries...what more could you ask for from a home away from home. The most beautiful beach...definitely lived up to its name. Thanks so much to the staff for making our trip a special one. We can't wait to come back!

LOVED Ringling Beach House! Not sure of the Ringling Family history but do know Ringling Circus family is synonymous with Sarasota. Loved the spotless and spacious apartments steps from beach Access #9 and only a short walk to the Siesta Village. (Be sure to try Lelu’s Coffee Lounge and the Sun Garden Cafe, two of our favorite village discoveries.) Although ample parking with two nice pools, there seemed to be less than a dozen units, so I doubt it ever feels crowded. Also loved that all of the apartments have separate entrances apart from one another. It felt like our own little private Beach Cottage.

We rented one of the large two bedroom units. It was spotlessly clean and decorated tastefully in a Florida beach motif. It seemed very new, even though the property is obviously a historic building. Everything is set back enough so that you don't hear any traffic. The staff was extremely courtesy and helpful, providing great dining recommendations. However we never did find the time to use their Gym as there were so many close by distractions.

A little about the beach. Siesta Key Beach was just awarded The Best Beach in America, and deservedly so. It is wonderful. Also a fantastic spot for romantic Sunsets and Wine. What we especially liked about this location was that you not only had immediate access to the amazing beach but also was close enough to the quaint little Siesta Key Village for all of your dining and entertainment. For us a Perfect combination.

Like millions of others we Love Siesta Key Beach, love Siesta Key Village and have found the perfect spot to enjoy both, not only again next year but hopefully for many more years to come.

Stayed at Ringling guest house just after Thanksgiving. I stayed in the Seal Room. It was a lovely room. It was roomy and well appointed. It is really nice to stay in such a clean, fresh, cheerful lodging in a great location. The staff is outstanding. They go out of their way to be accommodating.

I will definitely stay there again and highly recommend it. You will enjoy the facility and the staff will make you feel like family.
