About J. Burnside

I am from Canada, and we have owned this property for 19 years and never tire of its beauty and amazing setting. The beach is our number one draw and the kids have spent many happy times digging and swimming, while we adults enjoy biking and walking the beach. The occasional dolphin siting is always exciting! One of our favorite annual outings is to rent a boat and travel down the intra-coastal waterway for the afternoon with a picnic. There is plentiful shopping nearby and fabulous restaurants in Siesta Village and in nearby downtown Sarasota. What we love about Excelsior is that while it is so conveniently located to amenities on the Key, the setting just nestles you in and you are secluded in luxury.

J. Burnside purchased this condo in 1998

Why J. Burnside chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

We bought this condo after many years of holidaying in the area and growing to love the key and the pristine beach. It is cherished by our family, and the area caters to such a wide variety of age groups.

What makes this condo unique

Excelsior has a great location - walking distance to stores and restaurants, biking distance to the Village. The private beach access and chaise lounge chairs make going to the beach a breeze. The tennis courts are active and easy to find a game.

Fabulous Spacious Condo with Private Access to Siesta Beach - Rated # 1 in USA!
average rating of 4.8 based on 5 reviews

Exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful location, spacious enough for our family of 5. Very helpful staff. We all loved the large, tiled showers in both bathrooms. Having a washer and dryer in the unit was wonderful also. Proximity to the pool was great, and the young adults had fun with shuffleboard, weight room, and tennis courts, allowing the parents to rest between activities. :) This unit is close to so many things. Recommendations: Jonny's Beach Ride to the Village-downtown Siesta, Orange Octopus for ice cream, a drive to St Armand's shops and eating at Venezia, Walt's Fish Market and Restaurant, Dutch Valley Restaurant for breakfast, and so much more to do.

This is a wonderful condo. Location on the first floor makes getting to the unit easy and super convenient to parking, pool, and grounds. Condo was spotless. Comfortable beds and pillows. Everything was provided from beach towels to a super stocked kitchen. Beach is an easy stroll across the street. Complex is very quiet compared to the others around. Excellent BBQ area for cookouts. Chairs and loungers are available at the beach, with a pool and hot tub beach-side also. Management in the front office was super nice and made us feel welcome. We had a wonderful time, and thank you so much for allowing us to stay at your condo. We highly recommend this condo and know you won't be disappointed.

A little piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at this condo on two occasions and look forward to staying there again sometime soon. The condo itself is beautifully decorated and immaculate, with a fully equipped kitchen. The location is wonderful-so close to the gorgeous beach and with shopping, restaurants, bike rental etc. all within a short distance. Highly recommended!

Paradise in Siesta Key

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location for 2 mothers vacationing with 2 daughters. The bedrooms were lovely and spacious and the great room is large and so comfortable. The kitchen has everything that is needed to cook any type of meal. The pool areas are clean with the lawns neatly manicured. Gorgeous surroundings. The walk across the street to the beach enjoyable. Tennis courts were a bonus. The owners and management were easy to work with. I would stay here again. GREAT value.
