About Dorothy Balchunas

I lived on Siesta Key at the time that I bought my condo at Siesta Dunes. Shortly thereafter, I moved to San Diego for financial opportunity reasons while, as a widow, I was raising 3 young children by myself. However, my heart never left this place that I love so much. So, 20 years later and upon retirement, I immediately returned to Florida and now live in Destin.

Why Destin, FL? That is a sweet and wonderful story of how I met my husband....maybe we can share that story some day. During various times of the year, we

(my husband, children and now grandchildren!) enjoy and treasure our time here at the condo when it is available.,, so it is, in fact, our second home.

Dorothy Balchunas purchased this condo in 1980

Why Dorothy Balchunas chose Siesta Key

Why this property? Because this is my second home, where my heart returns to, and where I take pride in sharing it with others.

What makes this condo unique

Location! Location! Location! Not only within the confines of the finest condominium on Siesta Key, but also my particular Gulf front view.

Gorgeous Condo Resort

  • 4 of 5

Siesta Beach is absolutely amazing with it’s cool , soft sand and we had a perfect view of it. We enjoyed the sunsets from our balcony and the entire resort is beautiful and well maintained.. The unit is as promised and very clean and staged with an airy ambiance. The kitchen has all your needs and includes lots of plates, glasses etc. The bedroom is large and very comfortable. There is a lot of closet space. The unit is perfectly located near the pool and with a gorgeous view of the beach and deck. We enjoyed the free trolley rides to town and all the restaurants. We were so happy to see placemats and baskets etc. If we had a suggestion it would be that the TVs could be of better quality however the weather was so amazing that we spent a lot of time outside.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind remarks about your stay at my condo. It is always nice to know that my renters enjoy and appreciate their visit! Possibly the weather affected the TVs as I have never heard that remark before. I look forward to a return visit from you!

Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four enjoyed the perfect stay at this ocean-front condo for two weeks. In addition to being on the beautiful Siesta Key with its fine sand, clear water and sea breeze, this place exceeded our expectations in a number of ways, including the location on the beach, ocean view and sound from the screened lanai and beautiful well-maintained property grounds with lush greenery and palm trees.

The unit itself is spacious, nicely decorated with a beach theme and has everything you need for your vacation, including cooking gadgets/utensils and beach toys and umbrella. The beds are very comfortable. The salt-water pool is a huge bonus. The deck and gas grills by the beach are positioned to enjoy the sunset while cooking/eating your dinner. The property is centrally-positioned on the Siesta Key beach, far away from the crowded public beach.

The rental office is very helpful and the owner was very accommodating and easy to communicate with.

There is a great selection of grocery shopping, restaurants, and plenty of museums and points of interests for all ages within 20 minute drive.

I would come again!

Right on the beach and absolutely perfect! We've stayed in this condo for the past 3 years while visiting our son who was at college in Sarasota. Once we rented here, we never looked at anyplace else. Highly recommend!

well kept, well furnished and equipped, just like the photos, met every expectation

You couldn't ask for more. I mean there was even a crock pot! The facility is just as advertised. The beach is beautiful, the town is a little cheesy, but..it is beach town Florida after all.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful review of my condo....it is advertised most honestly and I appreciate your validation. Our beach is truly the BEST! Depending on how much you like "cheese".....many beach towns besides Florida have a certain "flavor" of their own! Your comment made me laugh (in a good way), but I would need to add Siesta Key and Sarasota in general have some wonderful places to dine and visit. Part of beach life! I would love to have you come back......my condo. the beach and sunsets beckon you!

Great property

  • 5 of 5

We loved Siesta Key and Siesta Dunes. The beach is gorgeous and just a short walk from the condo. The condo was great. It's spacious and very nicely decorated. We cook and the kitchen had everything we needed. We liked the covered parking and appreciated the elevator. The heated salt water pool is wonderful. We enjoyed breakfast and lunch on the screened balcony and loved watching the sunset over the gulf every night. We will be back next year!

Sarasota Bradenton International Airport

Siesta Key rightly deserves being awarded the world's most beautiful beach. The sand is a powdery white sand that must be seen to be believed. The sunsets are breathtakingly beautiful. Siesta Dunes sits in the midst of all this beauty, and my beachfront condo is the birds eye view to this and more. Sarasota offers innumerable things to do and visit, whether it be cultural or outdoor enjoyment. To name a few such offerings: Mote Marine Lab (fascinating for all ages), Selby Botanical Gardens, Ringling Museum of Art, Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall, Sarasota Jungle Gardens, live theater, Myakka State Park, Ringling Circus Museum, and much more. Restaurants? Fabulous food abounds!
