About Mary Wilson

I was previously from Grand Haven, Michigan and purchased my condominium on Siesta Key after vacationing there for a few years to get away from the cold winter days. I quickly fell in love with the beautiful white sands of Crescent Beach as well as the friendly people. After owning my condominium for a just few years I decided to relocate permanently to Sarasota, Florida where I now live just a few miles from my condominium on Siesta Key.

Mary Wilson purchased this condo in 2001

Why Mary Wilson chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

Siesta Key is a tropical island paradise, with great beaches plenty of entertainment. Sarasota is known as the cultural center of Florida.

What makes this condo unique

My vacation condominium is located across the street from Crescent Beach, renowned for its breath-taking sunsets, easy-going waves, and gorgeous, crystal-white sand. The sand is 99% pure quartz, soft and cool on the feet. Among the many awards it has earned are: “the whitest and finest sand in the world” (The Great International Beach Challenge, 1987) , “The Best Sand Beach in America” (The Travel Channel, 2004), '2011 Best Beach in America' (Dr. Beach, 2011).

Fantastic condo!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the condo! We felt at home! It was clean, and nicely furnished. The king size bed was very comfortable! My daughter used the Murphy bed and she loved it! We watched all the movies. We spent all of our days on the beach. There's no private access to the beach, but the public access is a short 5 min drive up Midnight Pass Rd. We called Johnny's original free shuttle for the first couple of days. They work for tips only. We saw that parking wasnt a problem at this time of the year, so we drove for the rest of our stay. The downtown shopping and restaurant area is about a 10 min (if so) drive away. There's a free public parking behind everything. If you are coming from the condo turn right when you see the mini doughnuts trailer and then take the next left. The parking will be on your left. There're amazing ice cream shoppes. We cooked for the most part bc we have little kids and it was easier for us. The kitchen is very well stocked. The appliances are nice and new.

Mary is very prompt and easy to work with it! Thank you for a wonderful stay!

We'll defenitely be renting the condo again!

Blessing's moment by moment...

  • 4 of 5

My daughter's did a better review on their Facebook accounts but I will try to share a little with the peep's deciding on where to stay. The place was absolutely fabulous..., we went to all the beaches, all convenient enough. Enjoyed our 3D movie..."cloudy with a chance of meatballs" was very nice late one evening. Worked a couple of jigsaw puzzles...didn't tackle the 1000 pc started too late, lol. Sure was a refreshing change from any motel room we have ever stayed while vacationing anywhere! We will definitely return to this unit if we return to same location next vacay.

Comfort & Immaculate

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was absolutely as comfortable as home. We pretty much had everything we needed at our fingertips in this condo. Clean and convenient to pretty much anything you need. Mary was a true delight to work with as we were setting our vacation plans in place. So, if you are looking for Comfort, convenience, and cleanliness, I would highly recommend this condo and the wonderful woman you will be working with.

Worked great for us!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very clean, the beds were comfortable, and it had everything we needed. The complex was very quiet and peaceful. We only used the pool once but it was great, and there was typically no one or very few people in it. It is close to the village with many restaurants and shops. Captain Curts to the south was very good as well.

The only minor issue was the closest access to the beach was good ways down the road, and no parking. However, we discovered the many shuttle services available that work strictly for tips, and they will pick you up and drop you off right at the beach. Beach Access #7 seemed to be the least crowded and worked well for us. The shuttle is definitely worth a few bucks! Overall a great stay and the owner was very nice and helpful. Would stay again.
