About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Sunroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Magnificent sunsets await you as you relax in our private beachfront retreat. Tortuga is a very quiet condominium community on the most private part of Siesta Key. Our unit is in the center of the complex in the same building as the newly remodeled social room with full kitchen for larger gatherings, and comfy sofas to relax in while you watch the large flat screen TV. We are also on the fourth floor over the heated pool that sits halfway under the building to ensure a swim in any weather.

Our Condo in available to be rented for a term of 1 month or more. We have recently remodeled our unit updating the bathroom with a walk in shower, comfort height toilet, new cabinets with granite counter and double sinks. The kitchen was also totally redone with granite, new cabinets and stainless steel appliances. The living room with a full gulf view, also has new furniture. We have 3 flat screen TV's, HD cable, and Wi-Fi in our unit. The bedroom has a very comfortable King size bed, a walk-in closet, and full gulf view.

The sunporch doubles as a second bedroom with a new full size sofa bed, dresser and flat screen TV, for any guests that may arrive. The very private beach is only steps away and boasts some of the best shelling in the area.

There are several shopping areas within minutes, and some of the area's best restaurants are within walking distance. If you are a boater there is the availability of a boat dock for you to rent during your stay. And if tennis is your sport we have tennis courts too.

About The Owner

I grew up in Indianapolis, IN. and moved to Sarasota in 1981. I could not be happier here...no snow and lots of sun. I met and married my husband Bill, a Pittsburgh native who shares my love of sand and sea. (I must say however, he has gotten me to love our twice yearly ski trips to Colorado.) We love using our beachfront condo on weekends in the off season. The views are gorgeous and we are sure you will enjoy every minute of your stay.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2005

Why The Owner chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

We purchased our condo in Tortuga because we loved this quiet end of Siesta Key. The building is managed very well and is kept in top shape. Our unit has the best view in the complex.

What makes this condo unique

Tortuga is 20 Minutes from downtown Sarasota, 20 Minutes from Venice, 30 Minutes from the Sarasota/Bradenton Airport, and 1 hour from the Tampa Airport.

A very nice place.

  • 5 of 5


Your place was great. Enjoyed the view and the easy access to the beach. I have no complaints. If you are interested in my opinion on what make your place even more appealing, here it is:

1. supply beach chairs

2. supply a beach umbrella

3. supply beach towels......these 3 are not something that people can pack and with your place it is obvious that people want to be at the beach. The beach chars were under $10.00 and so what if they only last a few years.

4. I would have appreciated better directions. The buildings are not clearly marked as "A" building, so I had trouble finding my way...especially at night.

5. The arrangement of how/where to get in as opposed to where to park later was confusing. Perhaps consider mailing keys a week in advance so people can just park out front and come straight into the right building from day one.

I hope you find this helpful.

Thanks Tracy & Bill for opening up your condo to us! The condo interior is absolutely beautiful. The kitchen is gourmet quality with stainless steel and granite; and the living areas are stylish, yet very comfortable. The location is excellent for relaxing or shell hunting on the quiet beach; but it is also a short drive to Siesta Key Village (and it's white quartz beach) if you want to shop, dine or are looking for live entertainment. The complex amenities are wonderful, too - we swam in the pool, used the sauna and played tennis daily. You can walk for miles on the beach to the south (during low tide) and bike riding is very easy due to the designated lanes on the roads. The view from the condo was amazing (especially the sunsets)and we even caught a couple of sun rises from the boat docks across the street. The location is ideal for day trips to St. Armand's Circle (great shopping) and other beaches (Lido Beach, Longboat Key, Holmes Beach, Venice). Year-round complex residents were very welcoming and provided great information on the area. We'll definitely be back!
