The room was clean but even in early spring room was a bit stuffy. The ac is in main room so hard to get cool air in bed room. Wonder if in heat of summer bedroom would be sleepable. Not deluxe accommodations but not a dump.

I recently had the pleasure of staying at the Flip Flop Cottages in Siesta Key. My cottage was clean and nicely updated. The location was great being away from the congested north end of the island (but still just a short drive for beach going or restaurants. Richard was very friendly and welcoming when I checked in. He was busy...

The good: Location. Reasonable distance from beach for price. (1 mile from Turtle beach, 3 miles from Siesta Key beach). Also, the cottages are located on intercostal and provide kayaks, canoes, paddle boards for free use. Gear is a little run down, but they are free! Room rates were below average. The bad: I stayed in Captiva room. The A/C...

It's taken me a while to write this review because I didn't want to write it out of anger, but I think it's only fair to share my experience so you know what to (possibly) expect. I had booked a room for myself and a friend for a her birthday weekend. We only live 12 minutes from the cottages so...

We booked two cottages and the Heron House for a family vacation. The location of the cottages is lovely. At the south end of the key, it is less crowded, a couple of miles from Turtle Beach and surrounded by amazing homes. Check in was very easy. We followed the instructions in our email. There is plenty of parking and...

I can't say enough about this place. We went the week of Nov 13th so it was off season. We stayed in the cottage called Key Lime. It's a 2 bedroom cottage. One bedroom had a king bed w/master bath across the hall. The shower was a walk in, water pressure was great. The 2nd bedroom had 2 twin beds...

We have been 4 times this year alone! First time just my husband and I. Then the rest with the kids and the doggie! We love the location, the relaxed atmosphere, the proximity to the village, and IT IS QUIET!!!!! We love being close enough to the village and the city, but far enough away!!! We will continue to come...

Wonderful weekend shared with family and friends! The Heron House is big enough to accommodate both! My mother who is 100 years young loves this place and never wants to go home! Everything about the complex is tropical - colors of the cottages and the pool is flip flop shaped! This was a return visit for us and will be...
