About Gary

My wife (Lori) and I have owned a condo on Siesta Key for over 25 years. She stumbled upon Siesta Key during her college years. She took a semester off and drove south with a friend for the winter. Together they planned to waitress and save enough money to go back to school the following year. She settled in Siesta Key, worked at a few local places and came back home that summer. She never forgot the beauty and tranquility of the Key. In 1988 we purchased our first condo on the key. We owned that condo just under 20 years and sold it to buy this condo at the House of the Sun. We love this area on the Key the best and we longed for the day we could own something in the House of the Sun. We hope you can stay in our condo and we have no doubt, you will fall in love with the Key and the House of the Sun as well.

Gary purchased this condo in 2007

Why Gary chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

It has a Gulf view and it is completely updated. On top of that, it is walking distance to many local shops, a supermarket, restaurants, post office, bike and boat rentals, coffee shops and much more.

What makes this condo unique

It is directly on Crescent Beach, the #1 beach in the USA for the past few years. Enough Said!!

The condo was very clean, and felt brand new! The staff were very nice and helpful! We LOVED the powder white sand, all the local easy to get to shops, restaurants, paddle board rentals ( really rentals of all kinds) the roof top decks are amazing at night watching the storms blow across the gulf! My Family felt right at home and we had the best Vacation! Thank you so much and I definitely recommend unit 311 😉

#1 beach for a reason!

  • 5 of 5

Family vacation at Siesta Key was perfect! Condo is beautiful. Short walk to pool and beach. 2 community decks for plenty of opportunities to watch the sunsets. Nice grills for those summer barbeques. Beach is amazing. Be sure to check out the Point of Rocks during low tide for the best shells. Will definitely be returning!

great place

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very comfortable and updated. All the beds were wonderful! There is a small view of the beach/ocean. It rained a lot, so the game room with ping pong/air hockey, etc was great for the kids. Pool looked small, but was actually a nice size when we were in it. Sun Decks were wonderful for viewing sunsets. Recommend!

Nice condo . . . nice location . . .

  • 4 of 5

The condo unit we stayed in was well equipped and clean. It was a comfortable size for our family of 5. We loved that we were right on the beach and enjoyed the beach chairs that were provided by the condo. The ocean was crystal clear and the sand was so soft and cool to the touch. We found lots of beautiful shells (sand dollars, conk shells, starfish). We even saw a baby octopus down by Point of Rocks. Lots of sea life to discover! We had a great time!

Awesome beach!

  • 4 of 5

The one and only complaint about our condo was the double bed needs a new mattress......2 people could not sleep in it. The condo was a great location and was beautiful! The beach was the best we have ever been on, will be back!

Owner's Response: I am glad you had a great time and thank you for the feedback on the mattress. As soon as I saw your comment, I ordered a new mattress. Should be there on Wednesday. Hopefully, you will return again next year. Thanks again.
