“Wonderful, Clean Place to Stay on Siesta Key!”
We enjoyed our stay at Villa 1 very much. Sue was very friendly, and went out of her way to meet us and make us feel comfortable when we arrived. The villa has everything a person or a couple would need while staying on Siesta Key. The kitchen is well-stocked. The huge patio area is very inviting, and includes a sitting area, a table with chairs, and a grill. Sue provides beach equipment, too - a nice added touch. The villa has exceptionally easy access to the pool and a private beach. Both are a short walk of a block or two behind the villa. We didn't use the pool, but spent a lot of time on the beach. Since it's part of the "private" area of Siesta Key, it wasn't as busy as the public beach. There were still a lot of people, but not like the public beach at all. An added benefit is that if you like to snorkel, the Siesta Key beach is right next to Point of Rocks - the best snorkeling location on Siesta Key. There are plenty of stores and amenities nearby. There's a 7-11 across the street, a strip mall of various stores, restaurants, and a quick and easy drive to reach Tamiami Trail - one of Sarasota's main drags. Siesta Key Beach Village is about a mile away, but there's a walking/biking trail along Midnight Pass Road that will take you right to it. Villa 1 has a comfortable queen-size bed and a pull--out love seat. We didn't use the pull-out, but the bed was very comfortable. The villa would probably feel crowded for more than 2 adults, though. It would probably be fine for a couple with small children, though. One thing we both noticed was how clean everything was when we arrived. The villa smelled clean and fresh - because it was! My wife and I had a wonderful time! We would highly recommend Villa 1 and Sue's other villas to any visitors to Siesta Key. We definitely plan to be back some day - hopefully sooner, rather than later!
Response from the owner Thank you for such a detailed, informative review, chock-full of great info for future guests! Love your shout out to Point of Rocks! Just a side note: A wonderful, new, top-quality queen size sleeper-sofa is being delivered next week to Villa 1.
Three generations of my family have called Siesta Key a second home. Since we moved back to Canada three years ago, none of us have been able to visit my grandmother's "favorite place on Earth." We finally booked a trip, with Sue's help, to come back to Siesta after what seems like a very long three years! Our stay couldn't have been better! We rented units 1 & 3. We rented a car, but hardly used it other than to see friends on the Mainland. The free beach rides are awesome, and all that you really need is within walking distance! We went Kayaking with inexpensive rentals from the store across the street, and even went over to the Parasailing place in the Marina. They were both really, really fun & didn't break the bank! The best thing I could suggest is that you bring along friends... it really made our stay so much more fun! Rent another one of Sue's units & get somebody you don't get to see too often to join you. You won't regret it!! Thank you Sue for making our stay amazing!
Response from the owner Thank you, Max. I love your suggestions... kayaks, parasailing, and inviting friends and renting 2 or 3 villas!
“Home away from Home!”
You really don't need to bring much on this vacation! Everything you need is already there and in very good condition. The queen bed is very comfortable. The pool is great for laps or just relaxing. I would love to do this again next year or sooner!
Response from the owner Love your concise review! Thanks! Hope to see you back soon!
Just read all the reviews for an idea what this villa is like. They are all true. We didn't hear the traffic out side from the street. We had a great time and Sue was a very gracious host, was very helpful and everything you need was provided. We will return. We stayed in villa #1 for 2 weeks then left for 3 days and returned to villa #2 for 1 week. Villa #2's patio is a little more desirable but both were well set up with BBQ, table, chairs, umbrella etc. very relaxing.
Response from the owner I'm so glad you had a great time! Thanks for this helpful review!
“A Wonderful Little Getaway!”
My husband and I had a wonderful time at the Ebb Tide Villa #1. Sue was absolutely the best person I have worked with! She answered my email inquiries right away, and our vacation was booked within a few hours. We had a delay in our arrival due to traffic issues in Orlando, and Sue was very accommodating to work with us for our check-in. She was very fair and really thought about little things that can make a big difference. Since we flew down, we were happy that she provided beach chairs and umbrella, a beach bag, and beach cooler, and even noodles to float in the ocean...as well as tanning lotions and shampoos...and the refrigerator was stocked with condiments. The villa is kept extremely neat and clean, and the linens and towels were new and fresh. Villa #1 does sit close to the road, but we were not disturbed by traffic or noise at all. We liked being close to the 7-11, the pharmacy, and a grocery store. The walk to the pool and beach were not far at all, and it was not over crowded. The temperature of the pool was kept at around 82 degrees, which I personally liked. It was a very nice sized pool, with salt water filter and plenty of loungers. The flat screened TV had plenty of channels, and we also were happy to have Wifi there as well. We were there to rest and relax, and to go to the beach and pool, so it was a perfect little spot for the two of us! Thank you, Sue, for the personal touches and for all of the TLC that you put into your villas! We were so thankful for this find on the internet, and we will definitely consider this again in the future! God bless!
Response from the owner Kim & Tom, it was such a pleasure meeting both of you. Thank you for your kind words and thanks, too, for posting these 3 great photos! I'd love to see you return to Ebb Tide.
“Very nice and relaxing!”
We had a great time on our vacation. This was our first time renting a property on Siesta Key, and we couldn't have been happier. The owner was very nice and she was quick to respond to my questions. The villa was very bright and clean, and well maintained. The décor was "beachy", which is exactly the experience we were looking for. It was just the right size for our family of 3. The patio was ideal for enjoying our morning coffee and late night glass of wine, since the rest of the time we were enjoying the beach and local scene. While the unit is right next to the road, we did not hear any traffic or people walking around. There were basic pantry staples, so check it out before going to the store. The pool was clean and had plenty of chairs. There is a drugstore right across the street for anything you may have forgotten at home, and a 7-11 next to that for ice or snacks. We went to Captain Curt's (across the street and down about a block) and enjoyed the Gator Bites, and at night we could hear the music from the patio. Sunday night Drum Circle on Siesta Public Beach is highly recommended. Johnnys Free Beach Rides will take you anywhere on the Key for a tip (generally $1-$2 a person), take it to Subzero ice cream shop in the Village. They freeze the ice cream right in front of you, and there is nothing better than fresh made ice cream. Mote Marine provided an afternoon of entertainment (the shark feeding was particularly interesting), and it was a short drive away. And, of course, there was the beach. The beautiful white soft sand and warm waters were ideal for recharging one's batteries. All in all, I would highly recommend this villa to any one of my friends or family.
Response from the owner Thank you for this wonderful review, full of helpful info for future guests. I hope to see you return for your next family vacation at the beach.
We loved staying at Ebb Tide!! The place was perfect for my husband and I to relax and have options for entertainment so close by! The walk to the beach is a short 2 minutes. The condo was very clean, had everything we needed to cook, plenty of towels, and close to shops, food, and pharmacy. Sue was great, she met us at the condo upon our arrival and showed us the place so we would be more familiar with everything. She even gave us some delicious gourmet chocolate as a wedding gift which was beyond sweet of her. The tiki bar across the street was a favorite of ours, it became a ritural each evening to walk to beach for the sunset then walk to the tiki bar for drinks and live music. We plan on coming back as soon as we can! Thank you Sue for everything! Hope to see you again soon!
Response from the owner I hope to see you again, soon, too! Thanks for the great review.

Response from the owner Thank you, Sophie, for the kind words. I'd love to see you and your friends return anytime!
“Excellent location, accomodations and owner hospitality”
Sue was very helpful from the very beginning of booking our trip. She was willing to answer all of my questions and always returned my emails immediately. The villa was superior ! Clean, comfortable and equipped with all the amenities we needed. We debated about a car rental and in the end I was glad that we didn't. Everything was within a healthy walking distance and the beach taxi helped out when we were too mellow after a full day at the beach. The beach was by far the best we have ever visited and so close to the Villa. The courtyard was very private and pretty with all of the flowers, plants and birds. Thanks Sue for sharing your beautiful place with us !
Response from the owner Thank you, Marilyn, for this lovely review. I hope to see you return.
“All the comforts of home!”
An extremely well furnished villa with everything a beach-goer could possibly need. The villa is just steps away from dining and shopping. It's a quick walk to the beautiful sand of Siesta Key's Crescent Beach! Sue couldn't have been more accommodating! We can't wait to return next year!
Response from the owner Thanks Tracey for the review. See you same time next year!
