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... More

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... More

I had booked a room for myself and a friend for a her birthday weekend. We only live 12 minutes from the cottages so... More

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... More

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... More

Love Flip Flop cottages, this was our third trip. Yvonne was very helpful and extremely kind. It's dog friendly, which is a plus. Good location to visit Siesta Key or Venice Beach. They are beach cottages, not the Ritz...keep that in mind. We visited Brohard Dog beach two days in a row and my dog loved it. We will be... More
