Nice little house with a lovely pool for our annual girlfriend trip! by Sandra Jones 05/17/2018
We loved the ease of finding the property. Parking was nice, although we would have preferred a gate to our side of the house for privacy and security. A bit disappointing that the house was located on the main road - a bit noisy - the reason for not giving 5 stars. A pretty wall surrounded the pool, however, and the landscaping was lovely. Everything we needed for the beach was there which was fantastic. The walk to the beach was a bit longer than we anticipated - we should have checked since we are senior women. We didn't have enough paper products to get us through our stay, which has not been our experience from previous rentals. We had to call the management company to get a new umbrella for the pool, but the response was quick - he couldn't fix it and brought us a lovely new one! We loved the yummy cupcakes that welcomed us, as well as a bottle of wine brought to us on our first full day from the management company - a personal visit was appreciated. We loved Siesta Key - ate in the Village one night and lunched at a marina restaurant nearby another day. We probably won't be back because we like to try new locations each year, but would recommend this to others. The house is just as pictured - lovely.
The Cottages on the Key by Linda Rodriguez 05/09/2018
It was very nicely decorated very beachy. The house very clean upon arrival. The cupcakes were a very nice touch. The only issue we had was we are all Seniors and getting in and out of the pool without a railing was very difficult. The first step is very deep. That would be the only reason we will not be able to return. The shed was well equipped with everything you could possibly need.

Thank You.
True Beach House by Linda Rodriguez 05/05/2018
Decor was great you felt like you were in a Beach house. Cupcakes upon arrival a very nice touch. The only issue we had is that we were Seniors and getting into the pool was difficult. They had no railing to enter or get out. Location was excellent close to everything. Had issue with cable was addressed right away. I would recommend to people just not Seniors.
Amazing two weeks by Donna Summers 04/21/2018
We spent an amazing two weeks at Casita Sun Star, April 21st to May 5th. As part of a group of six we found our accommodations and the service top notch. The house was in a perfect location. Close to shopping and a five minute stroll from the beach. Although on a fairly busy street we felt we had the most privacy with sunshine all day and the private pool is a huge bonus.
Didn't see any other property on Crescent St that I would have preferred.
Any minor wants or needs within the cottage were quickly taken care of in response to our emails. Simple things....more dish cloths, hand towels and steak knives. Even a cookie sheet delivered on request.
Dennis popped by daily to check on us and took care of us really well. For example..we are early risers, sometimes up before daylight enjoying coffee by the pool. The sprinkler system would cut in about 6:15 AM and smelled really awful. Ruined a few mornings. When we mentioned it to Dennis it was retimed to come on during the night. Not sure if it was part of his job but he saw it done. We couldn't find the pool light and he took care of it as well. The maintenance guy, the pool people and the gardeners. All lovely people, friendly and doing an amazing job!
I would definitely like to return to Casita Sun Star and will have no problem recommending it to friends.
Our last 8 vacations have been all inclusive and this was our first visit to Florida. Casita Sun Star makes us want to go back!
Wonderful accommodations, great location and perfect weather.
A small part of me wished that the pool was screened in during the last week. For 2-3 hours in the afternoon the love bugs and those other flys were a pain. But that's nature!
I will be writing a review on TripAdvisor as I do with most of my vacations. I hope to return.
Donna and Roger Summers.
Awesome rental with great accommodations and pool! by Nancy Slabosz 04/20/2018
Great experience! The extras like bikes, beach chairs, coolers, wagon were perfect for the short walk to the beach! The pool was large enough and everything was top notch in the home! Beds were very comfortable too!!
Great accommodations by Terri Bailey 04/07/2018
Our party of 6 loved the location and accommodations. Pool area was great, with less than a 5 minute walk to the beach. The only draw back was that we didn’t realize this was a twin single and the pools are right next to each other, they could use more plants for privacy from the neighbors, who with the common wall from being a twin single we could hear when they were partying pretty loud at night! Would book again tho
A great place to vacation and a beautiful cottage. by Susan Morgana 12/11/2017
We had a wonderful time at the Casita Sun Star. It is a beautiful cottage, light and open and very clean. We had 2 minor issues and the response to our call was quick and efficient. The location is an easy walk to the beach and the beach towels provided were the best I have ever seen. The kitchen is well equipped.
Wonderful experience by Jose Englehart 11/14/2017
It was very nice. We had a family reunion, and our stay was very pleasant. Two of our children are thinking about going with their families and repeat the experience.
Perfect relaxing getaway! by lindsey cogan 10/19/2017
Our stay was absolutely perfect! We grew up in Florida and come back every year. This has been our best rental by far. The space fit our family perfectly. So many things to glorify: the memory foam beds including the pull out sofa (a bonus for adults), spacious kitchen and dinning area, outdoor dinning space, shed with beach accessories, private pool, washer and dryer, and the welcome cupcakes put it over the top. Your staff was very helpful with any questions or concerns during our stay. I emailed asking where to put the trash cans after they have been emptied and someone came to put them away. You exceeded my expectations. We will be using The Cottages on the Key from now on.
Casita Sun Star by Cheryl Klinger 10/04/2017

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, love the house and Siesta Key and hope to return again. I would definitely rate the Casita Sun Star 5 stars.
I was upgraded to the Casita Sun Star which was amazing. Siesta Key was an outstanding vacation. by Cheryl 09/22/2017
The property was impressive and beautifully furnished. We enjoyed all the amenities and felt like it truly was a home away from home. We loved everything about the rental and Siesta Key in general.

Areas for Improvement:

Hmmm.... maybe a pamphlet with the wifi password so no one will bother the person that booked the rental while she is floating in the pool. Better yet, a framed picture saying "you don't need the wifi password. You're on vacation."

Really, maybe some information on proper food storage. I noticed sugar ants when we arrived. Also, the carefully placed pest control. I know how to keep those suckers at bay, but I can imagine a loosely rolled chip bag putting some northerners into a panic.

Thank you for a wonderful experience
Wonderful stay - surpassed our expectations by Sujatha R. 08/02/2017
Our family of five just returned from a 1 week stay at Casita Sun Star. The home is beautiful - we were told that this unit, and the adjoining, one were completely remodeled this summer. It is just as pictured on the website. The place is well stocked, with very comfortable beds, bath and beach towels, a variety of kitchen tools - even a filled spice rack. There are also bikes, beach chairs and a rolling beach caddy, which were very helpful. The beach is a 5-10 minute walk from here (10 minutes with kids and beach gear). We didn't get a chance to ride the free island trolley, but it can be caught just in front of the house. Just as impressive as the home, the level of service from the people at The Cottages on Key was wonderful. We notified them in advance that we would be arriving late on our first day; they sent detailed entry instructions, and left lights on at the house to assist us.The welcome gift of gourmet cupcakes was a nice touch. When we had trouble connecting to the WIFI and left a phone message, the office responded within an hour and resolved the problem, and also sent someone out to check on the equipment. We've already recommended this cottage to our family and friends, and we'd love to stay here again on future trips to Siesta Key.
