About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Beautiful views, powder fine sand, perfect location and sunshine! All this on Siesta Key beach, picked #1 beach in the United States in 2012 and one of National Geographics top 10 beaches in the world! Number 2 beach this year?!

Our second floor walk-up unit has views out every window and is in an ideal location. On a windy day our unit is somewhat protected by the direction the building faces. The pool can be watched from our unit, too. Swim in the pool, lounge on a chair, walk a few steps to the sand beach on a walk surrounded by sea oats, cacti and palms to make our complex feel protected from the beach. Take a walk to Point of Rocks on the south and look for shells or just people watch. The beach 'monitor' will get you a chair or lounge chair and put up an umbrella for you (not many complexes have this service). Eat lunch by the pool at one of the umbrelled tables.

Sometimes you hear a trumpet sound at sunset. Other times you hear a group of men singing 'God Bless America' while the sun goes down. Then go out back and grill your burgers...eat out there or in our condo.

We have recently remodeled the big room and added new furniture plus a new 46' HDTV. Our phone has free long distance stateside. We have wifi for you computer users. There is another TV in the master bedroom which has a new King sized bed with comfy new mattress. The other bedroom has two twin beds and a big window looking out toward the beach. There are two full baths, one near each bedroom.

Keywords: ideal location on beach, condo, newly redecorated big room, wi-fi, free long distance in states, 2 tennis courts, beach lounges with umbrellas, walk-up 2nd floor

About Diana Y Davis

Joe and I bought this condo while visiting Midnight Cove with 4 teenage girls and it was raining. What do you do to get out of their hair? Find a realtor to show you property! That was it...with orange shag carpet and olive green accents everywhere. Joe has been an attorney, in an Indiiana town where we have lived for over 50 years. I taught school for 20+ years and began renting he unit myself when I retired. Recently we have enjoyed being at Siesta Key with our grown children, their spouses, and our 13 grandchildren! Of course, we have to rent several other units and that is how we know we have a very special place!!!

Diana Y Davis purchased this condo in 1986

Why Diana Y Davis chose Siesta Key

We were a family who went skiing in Colorado, etc. every spring break. As a teaching mother I got tired of being cold and made a reservation at Midnight Cove for Spring Break 1977. At supper, I said, 'You can vote on where to go for Spring Break but you will loose $100 if we don't go to Siesta Key.' Well, we continued to snow ski some, but just fell in love with this place and this beach!

What makes this condo unique

We just love listening to the surf, especially in the evening and night time. We can hear it well with our window and sliders open. We like the friendliness of our neighbors and visitors to the complex. We like eating at Claytons down the street. We like watching the birds and gators while playing golf at our favorite courses. We love going to St. Armands to listen to jazz and shop. We like going to the downtown market on Sat morning. We like worshiping at a special church, Church of the Palms. We like eating great grooper. Relaxating while doing all of this!

Great time at Midnight Cove

  • 5 of 5

Very nice condo, super clean and excellent location. A few steps to pool and beach. Nicely decorated. We had a great family time.

Mrs. Davis was very nice and easy to reach. The staff at Midnight Cove are very courteous.

Thanks for a great time!

Great family get away

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful condo in June 2016. It is exceptionally clean and well kept. There is a nice view of the beach from the main living area. The living area is spacious and provides plenty of seating for our family of 4 plus guests that joined us for dinner. The kitchen has been updated and is very accessible and equipped. The master bedroom is on the smaller side, but has the most comfortable bed we have ever slept in away from home! Everything in the condo is quality. It's hard to beat the convenience to the pool and to the beach. Just a very short walking distance to both. Once at the beach, the attendant takes excellent care to have chairs & umbrellas ready and he is a wealth of knowledge with arranging fishing trips, kayaks, paddle boards, or anything you may be interested in doing while at the beach or in Siesta key. The beach is beautiful and the perfect place for a family to relax, and to have fun with many beach activities. The assigned parking space for the unit is very close to the condo. There is not a washer and dryer inside the unit, but laundry facilities are available at the complex - located right by the assigned parking spot. We would love to visit again!

Updated and well-kept condo with excellent location

  • 5 of 5

This condo is updated, clean, and well-equipped. With two kids, we did worry about getting food on the carpet but we managed to avoid spills. The ocean views are lovely. We were also happy with Midnight Cove, which is a well-run community. Condo is steps from pool and terrific beach. The only issue with our stay was that the beach attendant starts taking in all the beach umbrellas at around 4:30pm and believe me, you may still want an umbrella at that time of day. So if you plan to be on the beach in the late afternoon, bring your own beach umbrella.

Outstanding condition, immaculate, fabulous location with great view

  • 5 of 5

Outstanding condition, immaculate, fabulous location with great view. This property is everything that it is described to be and much much more. It is spacious, immaculate, with an ocean view and a very short walk to be on one of the best beaches around. There is a beach attendant to take care of people staying at midnight Cove. The beach is wonderful for walking and relaxing. The location is superb. Our family spent a most relaxing and enjoyable vacation. The hosts are gracious and accommodating. They are responsive and very well-informed. We appreciate everything about this terrific vacation spot.

How do you spell OUTSTANDING?

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the most beautiful and well maintained condos we've ever rented. It was immaculate and had everything you could possibly want. The kitchen had plenty of cookware, dishes, and utensils. It is such a short and beautiful walk to the beach...so many beautiful flowering plants and palm trees. The beach itself is so clean and lovely. The entire area is very peaceful and family oriented. Everyone affiliated with Midnight Cove from the staff at the office to Ian and his crew on the beach could not have been nicer. We would DEFINITELY stay here again! Oh, and another perk - there are "free ride" taxis in the village of Siesta Key that will come pick you up and drop you off in the area - Tips only for payment. Jonnys Original Free Rides were a life saver for us as we walked to the village one evening not realizing that it's 2 1/2 miles from the condo. The driver was very pleasant and helpful.
