We go above and beyond the industry standard for cleanings with our multi-tiered cleaning protocol. We have improved and strengthened our cleaning crews by mandating the highest quality products that are EPA approved to use against COVID-19. Our cleaners also have a longer period of time to complete this thorough process to ensure a full cleaning of all items. After this initial cleaning, we require the cleaning company manager to assess the job completed and assign any additional areas to be cleaned. Furthermore, right before your arrival, we have a quality control team that conducts a 50-point pre arrival inspection on this home and reapplies the approved products once again right before your walk into your beautiful home. We extensively re-clean every light switch, lamp, door knob, surface, remote, hard back chair, and any area that is considered a high volume touch surface with approved disinfectant cleaning material. This allows you to vacation worry free regarding the cleanliness of your home and truly relax as soon as you arrive. Our cleaning services have enhanced protocols in place to ensure that you feel tremendously safe and happy with this amazing home. Our goal is to have you feel like you are walking into a brand new vacation home that no one has ever stayed at before!

Guest Reviews

Our stay was excellent. Location was excellent by Diane H. 06/04/2019
The home was excellent in every way, space, location, pools were awesome, property manager was super sweet. We will highly recommend this to all our friends. Awesome vacation area. Thank you
Great house & location by Louise S. 04/16/2019
Love the location and modern house will all its amenities!It was super clean, beautiful and really everything was thought of - the cup cakes in the fridge were great bonus after a long day of traveling. The walls were very sound isolated and we never heard our neighbors. Also great service as we called and made a few checkin changes at the end, would recommend this great house to anyone!
Perfect House! by Lisa D. 01/09/2019
Perfect place for our ladies group of 20. Siesta Key is now our favorite destination
The Cottages on The Key by Kim G. 05/04/2018
First and foremost the accommodations exceeded our expectations. The location of the property, the amenities and the personalized service we received while staying at the Big Kahuna from May 4 to 20 was probably the best customer service we had received in our eight years renting properties in the Siesta Key area. We were greeted by cupcakes upon entry into the condos, which I might add was a very nice touch. JoJo was/has been absolutely excellent to deal with this past year and has gone above and beyond for any requests that we made during the reservation process right through to personally coming over to drop in to say hi while we were there. It’s just those little things that everyone really takes notice of and appreciates.

The decor in the units was exactly what we wanted in a beach rental, the use of the bikes was appreciated as we have been renting bikes for the past # of years, the use of the beach chairs and coolers – again all very much appreciated. When we placed calls to guest services for anything that we required it was met with a quick and professional response – again excellent customer service.

Thank you again and we’re all looking forward to returning in May of 2019.
