About Lisa Ruoff

Recently retired, we purchased this lovely condo on Siesta Key for a winter getaway. We live in Michigan and sail most of the summer. We also rent our condo during the year. Our home is your home. We continue to make upgrades in the unit and ammenities and we love to hear from our renters about how they enjoy these changes. We are always open to suggestions to maintain our condo for you as one of the most well appointed and updated units available. We have an onsite management company to attend to every detail.

Lisa Ruoff purchased this condo in 2011

Why Lisa Ruoff chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

Siesta Key is a lovely island community, small enough to offer an intimate and relaxing atmosphere unlike other resort areas. The Gulf and Bay Bayside complex is quiet, beautiful, right in the intracoastal and just a few minutes walk from our lovely Crescent Beach

What makes this condo unique

The short walk to an uncrowded beach offers peaceful and relaxing moments to enjoy in beautiful white sand that never gets hot! Whether you like to cook in the welll appointed kitchen or eat out, there are plenty of wonderful shopping venues as well as first class restaurants to chose from. Even the pizza for delivery is good!

Wonderful vacation !

  • 5 of 5

This is a great vacation rental! My family and I stayed for a week at the end of May. The condo is absolutely beautiful and very well appointed. The condo was extremely clean as well. The private beach is a 5 minute walk from the condo and the owners provide a beach cart, chairs..etc. The pool is just steps away from the front door. We had beautiful weather during our stay in Siesta Key. You can easily ride bikes anywhere on the island and Siesta Key village is a short bike ride from the condo. We would highly recommend this vacation rental ! We hope to be able to return to Siesta Key soon and stay in this Gulf and Bay Club Bayside rental again!!! Many thanks to the owners..!!!!!!

Amazingly awesome.

  • 5 of 5

Wow! My husband and I stayed in this condo #405532. We are so in awe of this place and will definitely come back! The owners went out of their way to ensure our stay was the best it could be. The unit seemed like it was brand new, very clean, neat and welcoming. How much the owners really care is amazing and almost unheard of. This was by far the best vacation we've ever had, largely due to the accommodations. Having a full amenity condo, with extremely comfortable living (including laundry) is THE way to go. This condo especially is over the top, with various upgrades and all brand new kitchen applicances. It was just so homey and comfortable and spacious, we really did not want to leave. It is steps away from the pool, clubhouse and grills for outdoor dining (if you want to save some $ from eating out) and has such easy access to the beach and intercoastal waterway. Plus, we found everyone in the complex to be so very nice. It truly was paradise!

In addition to the complex itself, Siesta Key has so much to offer, all of which is easily accessible from the condo: very bike and pedestrian friendly, shops and restaurants are close by, as well as some amazing sights and scenery. Who would ever tire of the beautiful Gulf of Mexico with the pristine beaches and amazing crystal clear teal blue water? A rental car is nice to have but not required. There is so much you can do if you like to stay active (swimming(pool or gulf), biking, kayaking, running) or simply relax and hang by the pool or the beach-reading a book or people watching.

We toured all around north and south of Siesta Key, (Long Boat key/Anna Maria down to Sanibel/Captiva Islands) and have come to the conclusion that there is absolutely no other place comparable to Siesta Key for all that it offers and especially what this condo and community offer.

So, if you are looking to have an extraordinary vacation, with an extraordinary place to stay and memories to last a lifetime, get yourself to Siesta Key and to #405532 condo rental at the Gulf & Bay Club.
