About Dee Dee & Brad Dawson

We live in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina, and enjoy using the condo in the late spring or early fall (when it is not rented). We think we have the best of both worlds. Come on down to our Siesta Key Paradise.

Dee Dee & Brad Dawson purchased this condo in 2004

Why Dee Dee & Brad Dawson chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

The south end of Siesat Key is quiet. It is close to one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. We are in walking distance to fine dining and casual restaurants. Siesta Key is very ecclectic and relaxed. Just as life at the beach should be.

What makes this condo unique

This is a small complex, with a large pool situated right on the Inlet. The neighbors are friendly and frequently gather around the pool. It is an easy going casual atmosphere. If you like your privacy, it is possible to just enjoy life on the Key from our large lanai. Either way, we think you'll enjoy your stay.

Beautiful Water Views, Quiet South End, Walk to the Beach
average rating of 5.0 based on 5 reviews

Very nice area

  • 5 of 5

The condo is situated at the opposite quiet end of the Key. The view was great from a large lanai. The rooms are in good condition, and well furnished. Residents of the complex were very friendly, and made us feel at home. Beautiful pool. We are returning next year.

Our November 2016 Visit

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Brad and Dee Dee's condo November 2016. They were most accommodating and easy to work with and very responsive. The rental process was simple. There were notes throughout the condo that assisted us with our stay. The condo was spotless when we arrived and fully equipped with items needed to feel like home.

The view from the lanai was our favorite part of the condo. We sat there every morning drinking our coffee and watching the birds, fish and boats in the inlet. We enjoyed the short walk to Turtle Beach to watch the sunset after a few hours on the beach during the day. The area is very quiet and peaceful. The outside of the condo building is well maintained and the pool was a nice amenity.

We plan on returning next November.

Carmel, IN


  • 5 of 5

We have rented 'our home away from home' for the past 8 years. We keep returning to this lovely condo because of the location on the quiet south end of Siesta Key. The view from the lanai is spectacular with the Gulf and the 'inlet' affording the traffic of boaters, boarders, and wildlife. We are allowed our privacy while feeling a part of the community of the Inlet. The residents are very helpful and know Brad and DeeDee. Amenities such as the heated pool are available for sunbathing and exercise and the beach is a nice walk. Everything that you might need for your stay (and for the beach) is located at the condo. Brad and DeeDee are responsive and are very concerned about your welfare ( recent weather) and have become 'the friends you have never met'.

Inlet, unit 36, Seista Key

  • 5 of 5

Looking for a smaller waterfront complex on the quiet end of Seista Key and only a short walk to Turtle Beach?

My husband and I found just that in this condo. We have stayed there the past 6 Summers. The accommodations are beautifully furnished and well equipped; clean and very comfortable.

My husband enjoys the large screened lani where he watches the boaters and Gulf views. The large heated crystal clean pool overlooks the lagoon where we see canoes and boarders. In the evenings he relaxes while fishing off the dock. We feel like this is our home away from home and we look forward to our stays.

Will be back

  • 5 of 5

Brad and Dee's condo exactly what we were looking for the month of Match. It was clean and adequately furnished. They were quick to replace the coffee maker, had it the following day. You can see the Gulf and Blind Pass Lagoon from the lanai. Turtle Beach was just a short walk away. Most important was it was a quiet, laid back location. We plan on returning in the future.
