Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday condo in Siesta Key - Palm Bay Club Bayside 2bd/2ba

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6) sleeper sofa in living room

This standard-sized two bedroom condo in the Palm Bay Club sleeps six and has a good view of Sarasota Bay. The condo is located on the peaceful bay side of the complex where you can watch boats on the inter-coastal from the condo, pool, hot tub, or pier. When you want the excitement of fabulous Crescent Beach just walk through the complex and your beach furniture will be waiting for you. Sun bathe, swim, boogie board, snorkel, collect shells, or just watch people go by.

The condo has free wireless internet. There is a Verizon FiOS Television Prime Bulk Package with a 15 channel HBO package, a DVR with an HDTV in the living room, a digital set box in the master bedroom with a HDTV and a standard set box with a digital TV in the second bedroom. Each TV has a DVD player.

The kitchen is fully furnished (including refrigerator with ice maker, range, dishwasher, microwave and disposal). The balcony overlooks the bay and pool. The master bedroom has a king bed and the second bedroom has a queen bed. Hair driers are furnished in the bathrooms which each have a shower/tub combination. All linens and towels are furnished.

Palm Bay Club Facilities:

Two heated pools

Fishing pier

Large custom hot tub on the bay

Rentable boat docks

Barbecue grills

Two lighted tennis courts

Recreation room

Workout rooms

2 hot saunas

Private beach with furnished chairs and chaise lounges

24 hour security

Lundry facilities on each floor

When you walk on the beach your feet will not get hot because it is one of three quartz beaches in the world. When you are done at the beach and ready to wind down, you and your guests will be able to escape to the quiet comfort of the bayside where there is a pool, large hot tub, boat dock, and fishing pier.

You can also stop at the clubhouse and workout, sit in a sauna, shoot pool, play ping pong, swim in another pool, or play tennis on one of the lighted courts. There is a king bed in the master bedroom and a queen bed in the second bedroom. There is a pull out couch in the living room.

If you have a large group, I also have the adjacent condo ( #45661 ) which sleeps 6 and you can sleep a total of 12 if you rent both condos.

If you elect to rent with me, I take a $500 deposit to reserve the condo. The balance is due one month before arrival and when I get the check I will send you the code for the door and instructions for the condo.

Hiking, Biking, Golf, Tennis, Fitness Center, Fishing, Shopping, Restaurants, Live Theater, Cinemas, Museums, Sightseeing, Swimming, Snorkeling/Diving, Boating, Sailing, Water-skiing, Windsurfing, Parasailing, Jet Skiing, Shelling, and biking are all available close by. The condo is conveniently located near area attractions such as the Mote Marine Aquarium, St. Armands Circle, Siesta Village, John & Mable Ringling Museum of Art, Marie Selby Botanical Gardens, Sarasota Jungle Gardens, Also Theatre, Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall and Ed Smith Stadium (Cincinnati Reds Spring Training Home) as well as area businesses like Sarasota Memorial Hospital and Sarasota Bradenton International Airport.

About Doug Hausladen

I'm retired and have several condos on Siesta Key to keep me busy.

Doug Hausladen purchased this condo in 2003

Why Doug Hausladen chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

Siesta Key is a family friendly place that has something for everyone. Sarasota has many cultural venues and the beach is unique in that it is made out of quartz. The Palm Bay Club has the most amenities of any property on the Key. I bought there because I can play all the golf I want to at home but don't have a beach like this one at home.

We arrived on Wednesday and the property looked very nice. The Palm Bay Club beach area was beautiful and the swimming pool near the bay was really nice. We entered the room and it also looked nice.

The kitchen had tiny ants all over the place. They were on the counter, in the cupboards and on the floor. I am unsure of their proper name but I am sure the owner has another name for them. Just like the cockroach that crawled across the living room floor our first night there that he tried playing off by calling it a "palmetto bug". I first text him and got no response, which seems to be the norm with Douglas, to get the problem resolved. I then called him to make him aware of the insect problem. I was told to take an ambien and go to sleep, after a few condescending remarks.

I then sent more photographs, via text message, the next morning for proof of the ant problem. Here was the response I received,

"Yes you sent me the picture of the singular palmetto bug last night.

I have called maintenance to request a visit by the exterminator. I will notify you of the time to expect a knock."

We never got the knock, a call or a text. We've stayed in a lot of places, all over the country. There were some that we paid a lot less for, that were cleaner and the owners were great to deal with, if there were any issues. The cleaning service you pay $84 for is a joke. We walked around in our bare feet and the bottoms of our feet looked like we walked outside, barefoot in black dirt.

I don't see an option on here yet where I can include photographs. If those of you who are thinking of booking with him and would like to see the insect problem, that was never taken care of, please feel free to email me or send me a message.

When I told Douglas that I would slam him and the place in the review, he seemed as if he didn't care. I will be surprised if this even gets published because he did not seem too concerned when I told him I would tell people what our stay was really like. I even sent an email to the VRBO.com page and did not hear back from them either. Well, other than receiving an email that they got my message but no follow up from them either. If only there was a option to select "no stars". If you feel like being talked down to and don't mind insects, then this is your place. Enjoy!

Owner's Response: Oh dear! While we agree that finding a palmetto bug, which are very common in FL as anyone who lives here knows can be a little unsettling, it is the responsibility of Palm Bay Club for pest maintenance. Anytime an owner calls for pest control, it is absolutely resolved. This time, it just didn't happen while this renter stayed (2 nights). As anyone can see, our record is quite good as we work hard to keep the unit nice, clean and our renters happy! While we would prefer not to have this review posted, we completely understand that everyone is entitled to their opinion no matter how uninformed they may be. We are in fact, thankful for the review as we always want to know how things went and where we can improve. The Hausladen Family

You will not be sorry renting from Doug, and vacationing on Siesta Key!!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent vacation!! We had a great time! The condo was very well equipped and there was no lack of space! Doug, the owner, talked my husband through a slight AC issue, over the phone, and was extremely helpful. We thought the condo itself was nicer than the pictures depict. Palm Bay Club is very well maintained. The beach is beautiful and the pool/hot tub right outside of the condo on the bay side is immaculate. The bay side (where this condo is located) also has docks for fishing in Sarasota Bay. We spent all of our mornings starting around 8:30 AM on that side before heading over to the beach. Doug has a closet with beach toys, pool toys, an umbrella, a fishing pole with accessories, a rolling cooler, etc for renters' use, which came in very handy. Those items were used daily. The wifi was great and we had no problems with connectivity. The balcony terrace is large and we ate meals out on it. I highly recommend this condo and recommend the Palm Bay Club. There are tennis courts, and another pool located on the side the beach is on. We met some great people, and everyone was super friendly. The vibe on Siesta Key is very laid back and carefree. We will be returning and will rent from Doug again!!

Awesome place...will definitely come back!

  • 5 of 5

My family & I loved the condo! Very clean & updated very nicely. Very close to the pool by the bay & we actually saw a Manatee while swimming the one day. So nice & relaxing to hang by the pool & watch all the boats go by. The unit is within walking distance to the 2nd pool, which is bigger, but no view with that one, still very nice. Also within walking distance to the private beach, you will just want to make sure you have a beach bag to carry your towels, etc as it's at the end of the driveway on the other side of the parking lot from where this unit is located. Very nice clean beach, there are chairs provided which is great & Doug has an umbrella in the unit to take along with some pool noodles & a float to use. I would definitely recommend this condo to anyone & was not ready to leave when our days were up. Laundry machines are located down the hall, just need to load money on the laundry card you get from the main office. To load the card, you have to go to the game room, the girls at the front desk didn't explain that to us, but luckily some tenants in another unit filled us in. You pay the main office 5.00 for the card & when you return the card you get your 5.00 back , but this money is not loaded on the card, you still need to do this. Thanks for sharing your awesome condo with us Doug, we LOVED it!!

Lovely and Amazing!

We just returned from a wonderful week in lovely Siesta Key, our favorite place to relax and enjoy. This was our third time in this condo and we are relieved to report that it truly was an amazing experience, one we hope to repeat again in the near future. The condo is absolutely lovely, decorated impeccably and stocked with everything one would want or need to feel at home. We loved spending time there. The white sand beach was a short 10 minute walk. We are very grateful to have found such a special place and gladly will return as soon as our schedules will allow.
