I usually ignore the lowest rating on a travel website figuring it's written by someone who's never satisfied but please don't ignore this review.
Do not rent the beach house at 145 Beach Rd. from the Beach Palms of Siesta Key. My family and I were supposed to stay there for one week but the property was so dirty we stayed only three nights and left as soon as we found other accommodations. The floors were so filthy that our feet were black after walking around barefoot. The wicker couch cushions were covered in mold and mildew and other furniture was discolored and falling apart. The bathroom needed scouring; we showered in the outdoor shower. Window sills and window air conditioners were full of dirt and cobwebs. Our food was infested with ants and the house is full of termites.
The Beach Palms other cottages are clean inside but the grounds are in desperate need of cleanup and are covered in poisoned ivy (if allergic, beware.) Despite all of this, Beach Palms felt we were being unreasonable to want to leave and would not give us our money back for our unstayed nights. We are still disputing the charges. The location of this property is great but it is not worth all the other disgusting aspects of the house and grounds. There are much cleaner and nicer properties on the Key run by much nicer people. We don't want your family to have the same disappointing experience that we did.
