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 Siesta Key

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!!

Great living space creatively arranged

  • 5 of 5

Excellent use of space within the condo. The mirror in the living room made the space appear even larger. The balcony was much larger and we enjoyed looking at the water. Everything we needed was there. We appreciate having the condo for our 20th Sister Week! Thanks.

Great property and responsive host

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is newly renovated, clean and has everything you need for an enjoyable stay. Check-in was easy and the host is very responsive. The beach is beyond wonderful. The House of the Sun had the amenities that kids enjoyed - a ping-pong table, a game room, a nice pool and tennis courts. The property is close to nice dining places and grocery stores.

Very well maintained and excellent amenities.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at House of Sun. 311 had very nice furniture and amenities. There was nothing that we were lacking for our stay. There was a nice view of the ocean from the balcony and it was protected from the wind on cooler days so we could still get some warm sun. The beach is absolutely beautiful and there are lots of shops and restaurants close by. The best beach vacation we have had yet, despite the unusual cool weather we got the last few days.

On the beach

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay here but we will return for sure! The place is clean, well managed and as advertised. It is right on the beach and walking distance to a lot! The Condo was awesome and we had a patio view of the beach. At night as the sun went down there is a great viewing area with tables to be able to have the best view of the sunset! This place is an absolute gem! I have already highly recommended it to a number of my friends and family!

loved the beach, condo and location

  • 5 of 5

the condo was awesome. beds were comfortable. had everything you needed to make your vacation great. the owner Gary was amazing to work with. we had perfect weather.

the beach was so amazing. plenty of lounges and chairs. pool a little small but who cares when you have the beach right there. Restaurants, shops and bars all right there in walking distance. free trolley rides to turtle beach area as well as down town area for more shops and restaurants. I would definitely book this condo again.

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 😉
