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!!

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!

We loved our three and a half weeks in 311 at House of the Sun. Well equipped condo perfect situation for bars, restaurants and especially the fantastic beach fully equipped with beach chairs and private beach area. We hope to return next year at the same time.

overall stay in House of Sun

  • 4 of 5

condo was very nice,clean and updated..have been to siesta many times and it was nice staying there. Only problems were keys in doors (hard to open many times and did not work on fourth floor at all) and the sliding glass door going out onto patio needs fixed. We were not happy about view from patio as from the pictures we looked at before renting it made it appear to be closer to ocean.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying in my condo and for letting me know about the sticky keys in the doors as well as the sliding door issue. So, glad you told me about the sliding door issue - it will be repaired this week. Regarding sticky keys in the doors, 2x a year the resort changes out the locks. The salt really wreaks havoc on the locks. As for the view, Siesta Key has some of the widest beaches in USA. Along with wide beaches, our building is fortunate to have a pool and tennis court on the beach side. I always try to remind guests that Siesta Key is not a beach whereby you can look out the window and see the water crashing against the shoreline. Siesta Key has wide beaches and most people love the fact the pool and tennis court are on the beach. Thanks again for the recommendations and for staying in unit #311.

Excellent Condo

  • 5 of 5

The House of the Son condo was an excellent. The condo is well equipped, very clean and perfect for a relaxing week in Siesta Key. The building complex is very secure and offered many amenities including two sun decks were we watch the sun set every night. We'll be booking this unit again.

We had an amazing time in Siesta Key! It is beautiful and so was this condo! It was my two young daughters first time to the ocean and it was a memorable one! I already wish we were back again!
