Comfortable Condo with a spectacular view

  • 5 of 5

We took a gamble, renting this condo for a month, but we glad we did.

The apartment has large sliding glass doors in the family room, which allows for a beautiful, un-obstructed view. We appreciated greatly the benefits of quiet, that the split bedroom layout provides. The condo is well decorated, very well stocked -there are even two bathroom robes in the master bedroom. It is clean, with comfortable beds (sheets are super soft) and comfy furniture. Every single room has an ocean view, even the kitchen. There are a few grocery stores nearby. Some clothing stores, restaurants/bars, and a convenience store are in walking distance.

If you don't feel like driving to a dinner downtown S.Key, the local shuttles will pick you up, and bring you back for a small tip - $5 per person on average. We enjoy long walks, and there are plenty beautiful sites.

The check-in, and the check-out both were a breeze.

Highly recommend.

Car: recommended

2017 was the 27th year of the Best Beaches list, put together by Dr. Stephen Leatherman (also knows as 'Dr. Beach'), director of Florida International University's Laboratory for Coastal Research in Miami -- and Siesta Key was his #1 pick again this year!

In addition to its sparkling sand and beautiful water, Siesta Beach, Leatherman said, boasts of the perfect waves, not for surfers, but for kids and families to play in. Rather than feet, the waves are measured in inches and the beach gradually slopes into the Gulf waters, making it a very safe area for children.

Following is a representative independent review of Siesta Beach by Jerry Chandler from December 19, 2012:

The world is rife with “perfect beaches” – places remote and removed where you can travel in time and space. Problem is, they are, well, remote and removed. To really register, a beach needs to be comparatively accessible, as well as consummately wonderful.

As for the first criteria, how ‘bout Sarasota? It’s close, on Florida’s lower Gulf Coast. As for wonderful, Dr. Stephen Leatherman (a.k.a. ‘Dr. Beach) labeled Siesta Key Beach the number one beach in the country last year.

The folks at Visit Sarasota County echo Leatherman’s lauding of this eight-mile long swath of sun, sand and sea oats on the Gulf of Mexico. The west side of the barrier island is where you want to be. The white sand beach is dazzling, your bare feet making a satisfying silica‘scrunch, scrunch’ and you head to the water beyond.

The area is perfect for constructing your own personal sand castles, launching that colorful kite you’ve always wanted to fly, or merely chilling out and listening to the sound of the surf wash away the noise of a workaday world back on the mainland.
