“Simply Stunning”
Reviewed 8 December 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Our family came down to Siesta Keys to help celebrate my grandmothers 99th birthday. We stayed at Casa Van Lopik for the first 3 days of our 10 day trip. This house has a lot of room and great location. We were 1.5 blocks from the village and 1.5 blocks to the beach. The beach over here was great for find sand dollars and great shells. Across the street was a canal with a dock where my son spent time fishing and catching fish for dinner. The sunrise in the mornings were wonderful from our private deck over looking the street and canal. We parked the car and walked everywhere. We moved to the Old Man by the Sea on Saturday which was just a few miles down the road. They worked with us to get us in a little early since we did not have far to travel to get to this house. This house was just as wonderful. We were right across the street from the beach, the kids 6,8,9 and 10 would run back and fourth from the house to the beach. We were never worried about them at all.This beach is just as perfect! There are a lot of star fish, and conk shell at this beach to find. When I had any questions about anything Daniel responded quickly. He gave us great food suggestions as well. We had everything that we needed right at the houses. When they say bring yourself and everything else can be bought, this is so true. Each house a lots of beach toy, chair, towels and everything you needed to cook with. There was a bran new open gas grill which was wonderful! I really felt like I was at home, the house was clean and decorated beautifully! These properties are located perfectly, Busch Gardens is an hour, Disney is less than 2 hours away. Wonderful fishing all over. Gertrude's property was the only one what would accommodate our family for a 10 day stay. I will be planning my next vacation with Gertrude's Rentals. We travel a lot and to travel with kids can be hard....not here it was a home away from home. I will be booking my trip next year again with Gertrude's! Thank you for the wonderful accommodations we will be back!

“Looking for a great place to stay??”
Reviewed 5 December 2015 for a stay in July 2015

If you are looking for a great place in paradise, consider staying at "The Old Man and The Sea Inn". It's just a short path away to the #1 Beach in the U.S., and the whitest sands in Florida. It is also just a short way to the local handouts.

“Great place for the family!”
Reviewed 4 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Our family loves going to Siesta Key for vacations and thought we would try staying at a new spot on the south end of the island. You couldn't ask for a better location. The kids could just drag their boogie boards and beach toys down to the sand and was very convenient for running back to the house for meals and snacks. We will definitely be coming back!

Reviewed 3 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Bruce & Susan from Kalamazoo can't wait to go back. Daniel is a charm to communicate with, very helpful as always. We invited some friends to join us on the beach from another condo in Siesta, and they are going to rent from Daniel next time too. The accommodations, cleanliness, furnishings and surroundings are AWESOME !! We hope to have a family trip there soon with all 20 of us. Thank you Daniel, and hug on that baby for us.

“Amazing accommodations, incredible location, I'd stay here time and time again!”
Reviewed 3 December 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Myself and 8 college girlfriends chose this property for a reunion over Labor Day Weekend. The size of the house was perfect for 8 close friends and the location was awesome. You are nearly right on the beach- towels, chairs, floaties, pitchers for drinks, all provided and were so helpful for those of us traveling and not wanting to spend money on certain items. We were close enough to walk to breakfast, lunch, and dinner locations and only a quick 10 minute cab to local nightlife. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND USING UBER to get around. The drivers take a long time to pickup (nearly 10-15 minutes each time) but they were so incredibly nice and friendly and helpful (one even waited for nearly 10 minutes in the rain waiting for it to die down enough for the group of us to walk down to the car so we wouldn't ruin out hair and outfits for dinner). Daniel was fantastic and very flexible with out arrival and departure time- a really great property owner to work with. Amazing accommodations, incredible location, I'd stay here time and time again!
