Christmas Vacation on Siesta Key

The holiday season can be a perfect time to visit Florida. If you’re flying from the northern states, you get to experience warm weather and pack your t-shirts and flip-flops. Family members from all over the country can easily fly into the Sarasota Airport then rent a car or have an Uber driver pick you up. It is only a 30-minute drive to Siesta Key from there, but our Lido Key vacation rental homes are even closer!

Once you’ve made it to your luxury rental home, your personal concierge will meet you and help you plan your vacation and answer any questions you may have about your accommodations. That’s right, for no added service fee, you have someone on-hand throughout your trip to give you expert travel suggestions and put you in touch with the right people. Would you like a local chef to cook for your family? We can help you make it happen!

What To Do During the Holidays

If your family is gathering together for a Christmas vacation, you won’t have to worry about kids or parents getting bored. No matter which rental home you choose for your stay, you’re never far from the beach or Siesta Key Village. Our guests receive FREE bike rentals, and we partner with local companies that rent street-safe go-carts and golf carts. You can easily travel around the island in style without ever needing your car. There’s also the FREE island trolley that makes stops at all the beaches and main points of interest on Siesta Key.

There are many Christmas events happening on Siesta Key, Lido Key, and Sarasota. So if you want something special to do, you won’t have to go far for shows, festivals or theatre.

Will Santa Know Where To Find You?

If you’re vacationing with the youngest members of the family, you’re sure to get questions about Santa Claus delivering presents to the right house. If you want to continue the tradition of the belief in flying reindeer and Santa sliding down the chimney, here’s how you can explain the magic of Santa finding you on Christmas Eve.

Anyways, Santa Claus always knows where you are. He’s been to all the little nooks and crannies of the world. He can find you if you are in the mountains, in a house with no chimney, or in Siesta Key.

Yes, even an island. Surrounded by beautiful water, and not a cold speck of snow in sight, Santa Claus still makes sure to make this way on over to this little tropical paradise. He probably enjoys the snow break.

Treats to Leave Santa on Christmas Eve

Another timeless tradition is leaving snacks out for Santa. You can still bake cookies in your rental home. All our properties have upgraded appliances, fully stocked and with plenty of space. You can cook a whole feast if you wanted to.

It could be a fun decorated cookies together, but be sure to leave some carrots for the reindeer as well.
