Ideally located

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely condo in Castel del Mare for 2 months and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The owners were absolutely wonderful and responded immediately to the few questions we had. This 2nd floor unit is private and quiet, as are the grounds of the complex. The complex sits on the intracoastal water way and is minutes from Siesta Key by foot or by car. Castle del Mare, while situated in Sarasota, feels like a private haven hidden away from the hustle and bustle of the city. There is an inviting boardwalk within the complex that runs along the intracoastal where one can sit quietly on a bench and watch the fish jumping, dolphins frolicking, pelicans fishing and herons standing gracefully in the water or even roosting in a tree! A ten minute walk takes you to lovely Cresent beach on Siesta Key or a 5 minute drive and you arrive at the beautiful and pristine Siesta Beach. This is an incredible and versatile beach…perfect for both walking and running (unlike many sandy beaches), swimming, surfing, sunbathing or just sitting on a bench and soaking up the view of sand and water or the breathtaking sunsets. The unit is close to shopping, restaurants, and is ideally located for day trips to both the south and north of Sarasota…and we took good advantage of this ease of access. Myakka River State Park and the Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary are but two examples of sites where you will see wildlife in their natural habitat. Sarasota has an airport, making it convenient in terms of flying in and out and Tampa is only an hour away. There is a Shopping Outlet a half hour drive to the North and another an hour and a half to the south. There are many other attractions on the Gulf coast that are within easy driving distance. As well, there are a number of Keys worth visiting in addition to Siesta Key…Casey Key, Lido Key, Longboat Key and Anna Maria Island…all interesting, with beautiful beaches and easily accessible by car. We would most definitely recommend this condo and especially its location!

Owner's Response: We had completed some renovations just prior to this guest's stay and unfortunately there were some minor issues requiring attention that were quickly resolved with minimal inconvenience to our guests. Our goal is for our gusts to enjoy a peaceful, worry-free stay however, if any issue occurs, we have people locally that can respond quickly, as they did here.

Walk to the beach

  • 5 of 5

After checking in, I walked through the complex and found beautifully kept grounds, flowers, and warm pools. The condo was spotless and well-equipped. A 9 minute leisurely stroll over the bridge gets you to the lovely azure waters of Crescent Beach, the less-busy but equally beautiful neighbor to Siesta Public Beach. I couldn't be more pleased.

Owner's Response: Location, location, location! The proximity to the most beautiful beach in the USA made the decision to own very easy. Leave your car parked at home a stroll to the beach for a sunset walk. Pure meditation!
