Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday condo in Siesta Key - Modernized Waterfront Condo

2012 modernized Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, No Smoking or Pets,

Our Condo is on beautiful Turtle Beach at the southern and most private end of Siesta Key directly on the Gulf of Mexico. When we say directly, we mean directly and not merely a Gulf “View” or a long car ride or a long walk to the Gulf. We call it “Paradise” and you could not choose a nicer location. Siesta Key is 7-8 miles long. Siesta Key used to terminate at Blind Pass just south Fisherman’s Cove as Blind Pass separated Casey Key from Siesta Key. However, at some time, someone filled in Blind Pass so you can actually walk (no road) across the Blind Pass area now from Siesta Key onto Casey Key. Our Condo is on the top floor (3rd floor, we are not a high rise), so no one can be above you and the views of the beach and the Gulf are terrific from our Lanai. We are in close proximity to the elevator/stairs which provides the entry from the parking lot (exclusive assigned parking space) and the entry to the beach and we are a short walk to the heated pool.

Our HOA and our insurance require minimum 7 day rentals. Our guest rentals commence at 4:00 PM on the beginning Saturday and conclude at 9:00 AM on the departing Saturday and we cannot rent for partial weeks. In order to maintain the highest standards for our Condo, we do not permit smoking or pets in our Condo.

We bought our Condo in April of 2012 because we believe it has the most unique setting anywhere with the Gulf of Mexico on one side and Blind Pass Lagoon and the entrance to the Inland Waterway on the other side. Almost nobody has water on both sides. Turtle Beach is fairly narrow which makes the Fisherman’s Cove condos the closest to the Gulf and permits our guests to actually listen to the surf from open windows. The two buildings in the Fisherman’s Cove Condos were originally built in 1968-9.

Most condos have not:

1. Been completely modernized with new appliances;

2. Provide their own washer and dryer;

3. Offer HD-TV;

4. Provide beach towels for guests; and

5. Provide private and exclusive Comcast WIFI.

During 2012, we completed a major renovation of our Condo to a standard suitable for us to make it our ultimate retirement home. Our living room has new tile floors, dining for 4, a leather couch and easy chair, with a wall unit containing a 40” HDTV with a blu-ray player and stereo/mp3 players. Our living room leads to a beautiful tiled lanai with a modern panoramic window on the Gulf, which also has dining for 4. Our new kitchen has new wood cabinets and granite tops, new appliances (side by side refrigerator, icemaker, water filter, smooth top convection range with a warming drawer, dishwasher, disposal, spacemaker microwave) and a new tile floor. Our kitchen is fully stocked with equipment including a new drip coffee maker with a permanent filter, toaster oven and many other small appliances. We have a beautiful Master Bedroom with a king size bed and a large window directly on the Gulf with its own 33” HDTV and a DVD player adjoined by a newly renovated tiled private bathroom with a walk-in shower.

Adjoining our Master Bedroom is our walk-in closet in which is located our own stacked new LG Washer and Dryer so our guests do not have to use the shared coin laundry.

Our Guest Bedroom has 2 single beds with a 27” television adjoined by its own updated private bath with a walk-in shower. New carpet was installed in our bedrooms last April, which completed the replacement of all of the original flooring in our Condo.

We furnish our own quality linens with bath towels and beach towels for our guests. Housecleaning is only before arrival and after departure, but we provide our cleaning equipment for use by our guests in the interim.

We also provide an iron, ironing board, hair dryer and lots of other items for your use, including beach chairs and umbrellas and beach toys. Our HOA also provides boat slips on Blind Pass Lagoon and there is a boat rental facility in close proximity on Midnight Pass Road.

Our guests have free use of our exclusive Comcast cable WIFI which provides cable speed Internet service privately in our Condo instead of having the use the regular public network, which sometimes is unreliable and has limited bandwidth. We have wireless telephones in our Condo connected to Comcast.

You might also enjoy to read the many reviews by our guests on VRBO (Listing168135), all of which rate our Condo as 5 of 5.

In addition to the photos and information on VRBO, please look at our exclusive personal website at www.siestakeydoublewaterfrontcondo.com for more details and more photos, including our progressive photos of the spectacular sunset which happens every day. The photos of the beach are for illustrative purposes only and weather, tides, and natural beach erosion cause topography changes from time to time. There is also plenty of information on our website about the fabulous restaurants nearby.

We had a recent tenant who had a great time catching fish in the Gulf right in front of our Condo! We can provide some fishing equipment upon request.

As a result of our unique location and the important upgrades to our Condo, it is very popular, so advance booking is recommended. We are always receiving numerous inquiries for rentals, especially since we have published our new upgrades and photos internationally, and as a matter of fairness, our policy is to accept the first actual booking we receive for each weekly or monthly rental.

We live in Venice, only 30 minutes away so we personally manage our Condo rentals and we are personally available to assist all our guests. Your rental agreement will be directly with us as owners. To confirm a booking we need to have full contact information (names, addresses, telephone numbers, email, ages of children, etc.) for all occupants.

We require a $300 reservation deposit at the time of each booking. 50% of the rental fee (less the $300 deposit) is due 90 days in advance and 50% of the rental fee is due 30 days in advance. All payments are non-refundable, except as follows:

(i) If the reservation is cancelled by written notice received more than 90 days in advance of the commencement of the rental, then the $300 deposit will be refunded less a $100 cancellation fee and this Agreement will be terminated.

(ii) If there is a mandatory evacuation order by a governmental authority due to a hurricane or other natural disaster, then Tenant(s) will be entitled to a prorata refund of the rent paid.

We recommend that Tenant(s) purchase Trip Insurance, if coverage is desired.

Our direct Gulf front condo means spending your day on the beach, swimming, fishing, strolling the shoreline, collecting shells or watching the magnificent Siesta Key Dolphins (or local surf boarders!).

Enjoy the mesmerizing Gulf sunsets with a cocktail on our Lanai. In the morning watch the sun peek over the Intercoastal Waterway - right out your back door! A 5 minute walk to the marina for all of your 'beach' toy rentals - from boats and wave runners to kayaks and canoes! Fish from our docks - or arrange a fishing charter - it's all here! A quick stroll (no driving required!) and you can choose from either casual or fine dining!

Feel like some 'urban' flavor? Head to downtown Sarasota or historic Venice for a unique cultural experience including shopping, dining, live theater, the world-renowned Ringling Museum and Mote Aquarium. We have activities and events to meet everyone's vacation desires! Make this Siesta Key Gulf Front Condo yours - slow motion or fast moving - a perfect vacation spot.

About Marshall Happer

I am a retired sports business lawyer and my wife is a sports marketing executive. We have lived in Venice since 2005 and my wife operates her international sports marketing business from our home.

Marshall Happer purchased this condo in 2012

Why Marshall Happer chose Siesta Key

We bought our Condo as an investment and maybe a future home, because it has the most unique waterfront location we have found on the Gulf. Last summer, I counted just 50 steps from our building to the Gulf!

What makes this condo unique

Everything. This is one of the most unique locations anywhere since we have the Gulf in close proximity on the West and Blind Pass Lagoon on the East.

Most rental condos have not been renovated to modern standards and do not have new kitchens and appliances, washer-dryer and full HDTV with Blu-Ray DVD. We do!

Fish in the Gulf or in Blind Pass Lagoon. Boat slips are available.

Since we live only 25 minutes away from our Condo, we are available to help ensure our guests have a wonderful vacation at our Condo.

RIGHT on the water!

  • 5 out of 5
We recently stayed a week at this fantastic property at Fisherman's Cove. The condo provided everything we could possibly need (including the old Labyrinth game that
we grew up playing!). The bed was very comfortable, which is a huge concern for us since my husband has back issues, and all amenities were top notch. We loved being lulled to sleep by the sounds of the crashing waves literally right outside our window. Some of the best sleep we have had in a while. The location of the condo provides privacy and we did not hear noise from other units. The unit was clean, well situated and the town was charming. This host went above and beyond to make our trip was enjoyable and to make certain we arrived safely. We would highly recommend this property.

Owner's Response: This couple came to us from very cold Massachusetts to enjoy a nice vacation on our beautiful beach on Siesta Key. We enjoy having nice couples like them enjoy our condo for their vacation. Our next guest asked us if we had, in addition to lots of small kitchen appliances, a slow cooker. We were embarrassed to tell them no, but yesterday before they arrived we added one. We want all our guests to have the best vacation possible.

Our second stay at this condo...

  • 5 out of 5
...without even considering another.
Our first stay at Siesta key was at another condo that was directly on Siesta Key Beach and since the beach is so deep, you cannot hear the ocean. Turtle Beach/Siesta Key and Fisherman's Cove (minutes away from the village and public access to Siesta Key Beach), however, are so close you have to crank the TV volume (if you want) to hear it over the waves breaking. All day. All night. And with the amenities this particular condo offers, I highly recommend it. The kitchen, the bed and sheets, the washer and dryer, the personal attention from the owners. I looked at other units in Fisherman's Cove for my parents to accompany us and none of them had the amenities commensurate with price. Bottom line...Stay on Turtle Beach. Stay at this condo. Eat at Gabbiano's. Go to St. Armand's circle and eat at Columbia and get the 1905 salad.

Owner's Response: Lisa & Len were delightful and thoughtful guests for our Condo. Lisa especially liked our quality 600 thread sheets which are commercially cleaned and folded and then personally ironed by Karen. Lisa sent us 3 wonderful photos she took during her stay at our Condo. We have added one of them, a beautiful sunset, as the 2nd photo in our VRBO photos. Our guests see that kind of sunset every night.

This is the first time we rented a condo in Florida that was actually right on the beach. The grounds for the condo were well groomed and the sandy beach was wonderful. The condo was in excellent condition with new stainless steel appliances. The condo was on the third floor which afforded us a wonderful view and a quite and relaxing stay. We opened the sliding windows on the enclosed deck for a couple hours each night to relax with the sounds of the waves. We have rented several condos in Florida. This wonderful condo on turtle beach is the first rental condo that satisfied all our expectations. The condo is close to good restaurants and tourist attractions. It's easy to recommend this condo for people that want a wonderful beach getaway.

Perfect vacation!

  • 5 out of 5
We had a wonderful vacation in Florida at Turtle Beach/Siesta Key with this condo being our home base. The condo is in excellent condition, the kitchen well stocked and the master bed (only bedroom we used because it was my husband and myself) is very comfortable. The beach is steps from your door and the view from the wall of windows is absolutely beautiful. The master bedroom also faces the ocean and waking up to the sounds and sights of the ocean just can't be beat. The proximity of the condo to the towns of Siesta Key, Venice and St. Armands makes it a great choice not only for the beach but also for great dinners and shopping. Marshall, the owner, was extremely easy to work with and check in and check out was a breeze. This condo is a great find!
