About the property

Ground Floor Condo, 2 Bedrooms,2 Baths (Sleeps 4)

ON THE BEACH! Cuddlefish II Beach Hideaway. True beachfront ground floor condo with beach and water views. No stairs or elevators to deal with. Walk right from your car into the front door of your beachfront condo. Walk right out your back door to the beach. Avoid the noisy crowds and smelly cars. Hear the waves instead of people. Watch the beach instead of traffic. Two block walk (500 yards) to the Village. There are only 4 other units in our condominium and we are one of only two on the ground floor. This affords a unique sense of peace and privacy, yet we are located in the heart of Siesta Key. Our reserved covered parking spot is directly outside our front door. Living on the ground floor allows one to step right out of the back screened porch to a sand path through the sea oats and beach daisies to the water, or to grill on the provided gas BBQ. If you are seeking the combination of peace and quiet, but still desire the convenience of walking to get a cup of coffee, or to the market, restaurants and bars, this is your best bet. You will see why we love our condo and named it the Cuddlefish II Beach Hideaway. If you really desire to be totally away from it all, we also own and rent out an even more private and secluded cottage directly on Manasota Key Beach: our Cuddlefish Beach Cottage. Enjoy comfort, privacy, soft sand and turquoise water in whichever Cuddlefish you choose.

Fantastic location

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful week and enjoyed the beautiful beach and all the restaurants and shops close by. The light and bright bedroom and family room and screened in porch were really nice. We would definitely stay here again.

Amazing condo! Amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

Me and my family are from the UK and had the pleasure of staying at this condo for the second week of our vacation after doing a week at the Orlando theme parks. I found booking really easy and the owner replied straight away to any queries I had. The accommodation itself had EVERYTHING !! The location couldn't have been better- a short stroll to siesta village and down a sandy path to the most amazing beach we've ever been to! The condo was very clean and cosy and my kids made good use of all the beach accessories that were available to use. I would highly recommend and would love to return one day.

A 5-Star Vacation in Siesta Key

  • 5 of 5

Definitely a 5-star stay. We whole heartedly agree with the previous reviews: the condo was clean and neat, the owners have thought of everything in equipping it, and Mark and Michelle are very nice and extremely responsive. Our month-long stay was quite relaxing. Each morning, we loved just walking out the back door and then onto the white sandy beach. Sometimes, afterward we would take a short walk to one of our favorite restaurants for breakfast. There are plenty of local places to select for lunch and dinner as well. It was so nice NOT to use our car, but it was also happy in the shaded carport! The few times that it rained and we wanted to drive elsewhere, we were able to walk out the front door and get into our car--all protected under cover. In the evening, we participated in the local ritual of watching sunset from the beach; the condo's location was perfect for that as well. Having a place right on the beach made it feel like a true vacation--we came to view it as "our" beach. We have many sand dollars that we found there that continue to remind us of that peaceful time.

This place was flat out perfect! Beautiful decor, cozy environment and all the amenities you could want. Fully stocked kitchen unlike so many rentals I've stayed at over the years that only have 3 plates, a bowl, too few utensils and one cooking pot when you needed a skillet. Plenty of towels in the bathrooms and drawer/closet space for anything you bring with you. The AC worked--almost too well for my wife--and kept us cool which was very helpful in early September in South Florida. The pictures on VRBO are legit!!! Obviously the reason anyone would want to stay here is the beach--and it's literally right out the backdoor. Walk out is less than 100 yards, no shoes required. Tall trees and shrubs on both sides provided privacy. It's maybe 1/2 a mile north of the public beach at Siesta Key so it's not very crowded even during peak hours. Plenty of beautiful shells to be found...and the sunsets!!! Stunning. Siesta Village is within easy walking distance with delicious restaurants, fun bars and a lot of live music in the evenings. Can't wait to get back! Would give 6 stars if the rating system would let me.

Great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This is truly a wonderful place to stay at the beach. From the moment we walked in we felt like home. The condo is very clean, well-appointed, and well-equipped. It has Wi-Fi and cable TV. Our teenage girls loved having their own room and bathroom and it was good space for all of us. Sliding glass doors in the living room and master bedroom lead out to a screened porch that overlooks the Gulf of Mexico. Great BBQ grill (the best in the house ;-)) that we used some nights. Parking is easy and convenient. The beach cart came in very handy for getting all of our stuff out to the beach that was only some steps away.

The condo is an easy 5-10-minute walk to Siesta Key Village, where there are lots of places to eat, drink, and listen to live music. It was really a perfect location!

The owners (that we had the pleasure to meet one evening!) is very nice and easy to work with. We would definitely like to stay here again!

Our trip from Sweden for a family vacation in Florida included stop in Orlando, Miami South Beach, Key West and Siesta Key. We all agreed that our no 1 place was Siesta Key and the Cuddlefish II Beach Hideaway!

Wonderful vacation in Cuddlefish II on Siesta Key

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week on Siesta Key. It was our first time to the island. The beach was beautiful and the condo was perfect for us. It is an excellent location both for beach access and walking to Siesta Key Village. Thanks for letting us stay at your place.

Car: not necessary

We are easy walking distance from the restaurants, shops, and pubs of Siesta Key Village. No need to worry about finding a parking space to go out to eat. Just walk to the table. We are right on the Beach. No need to drive or cross a street with your chair. We provide the chair. Just walk down a short sand path through the sea oats to the water.
