***NEWLY RENOVATED May 2016*** 6th Floor condominium overlooking the pool and Gulf of Mexico on the best beach in the United States. 2 Bedroom (1K, 2T) two bathrooms. Unit includes a washer/dryer, full kitchen with refrigerator & dishwasher. Television with basic cable & FREE WIRELESS INTERNET. Has a wonderful screened in balcony with chairs and tables that are nice to use to play cards after a fun day at the beach! Great for families of all sizes.
The Midnight Cove complex is very well kept, very clean, and secured with gated entry and staff. Unit 463 has recently gone through a major updating which included flooring, kitchen appliances, countertops and a complete overhaul of the master bathroom.
My wife and I were looking for a quiet place to unplug and found this to be our new favorite VRBO location. All the standard amenities such as stove-oven, refrigerator, dishwasher, etc. plus coffeemaker, toaster oven, microwave, a variety of cooking pots, pans, cookie sheets, utensils, along with full sets of plates, silverware and glassware are provided.
We were able to make a list of the groceries, spices and condiments, and did not have to leave the condo for anything, unless we so desired.
Though many of the other units were occupied, there were plenty chairs, loungers and between the pool and the beach we had plenty of room, especially this time of year.
We arrived in the evening after dark and it took us a while to figure out the gate code, where the office was located, and exactly where the condo was located, as directions are many times difficult when seasoned veterans are communicating to first time visitors.
The only other item that we had to cover was quantity of washcloths. Three were provided in plain sight and we typically use one per day per person so we bought a half dozen at a local department store and took what we purchased home with us. There may have been provision through the office but since that is primarily the property management company and we were renting directly from the owners through VRBO, we just decided to buy a few and take them home with us ... we didn't ask but there may have been a stash of wash cloths that we just didn't see. Washer & Dryer also handy!
Overall, I give this five stars as it was well appointed, the kind of place I aspire to own someday, and felt very at home with the facility, the amenities, and the location.
For those who don't know, Siesta Key has powder white Quartz sand. It never gets hot under the feet no matter how high the UV index is, and is absolutely a pleasure to walk in ..... we managed to get in well over 10,000 steps without trying too hard with a nice long walk in the morning and a shorter walk in the evening .
Thanks again to Bob and Linda for allowing us to share their 6th floor view of the world and we look forward to staying again sometime in the near future.
Dave and Diane B.- Troy,
Midnight Cove is a delightful community of Condos and vacation rentals. In particular, I just enjoyed a stay at Unit 463 which is a lovely unit, sleeping 4, with a beautiful view of the Gulf and Crescent Beach. Without hesitation, I would rent this unit in the future. The Owner is courteous and very easy to confer with which I found to be very important.
We had a wonderful vacation at your Midnight Cove rental. The newly remodeled floors and entire condo is beautiful. The view from the balcony is amazing. The condo was very well equipped with anything we needed during our stay. We can't wait to go back to this rental next summer!
Great location--very convenient to Siesta Beach and village as well as easy access to the mainland. Very comfortable furnishings, nice roomy kitchen area, and spectacular view. Could use a little TLC in minor areas such as carpeting, (needed some stain removal), making sure any broken items (our towel rack was off the wall and not replaced), and window cleaning (entry area windows were in dire need of cleaning).
Overall, however, a very nice vacation--perfect for my 3 and 7 year olds, with easy access to the private beach and pool. Also appreciated the lounge chair and umbrella service on the beach. Would recommend this unit to any family looking for a relaxing vacation on a picture-perfect beach.
We were not first time visitors to Siesta Key, but it was our first time staying in this condo. It is a beautifully maintained property with a wonderful view of the ocean, which we watched every morning as we ate breakfast. The key was mailed to us ahead of time, making the arrival process much simpler. My daughter loved the towels, and she felt were much higher quality than the ones in her bathroom at home (She was right). We would definitely rent this condo again. A great little ice cream place, Orange Octopus, was within walking distance, and the ice cream was so good we visited it 4 times in one week. Yum.
Minor negatives: the pillows on the master bed were pretty terrible and their was construction going on in the condo next door.
This unit was very nice, clean and spacious. kitchen was spacious and appliances were nice. there was not a koureg coffee pot in unit and microwave was old but worked fine. Pots and pans were not the best but we managed. there were plenty of linens and towels. Wifi was spotty. The kitchen faucet was a pain. nice tables and chairs with lots of seating on deck was really nice. bedding was really good quality and beds were comfortable would have liked darker curtains due to early morning sun. like other reviewers a second shower would've been better. Owner seems very nice and responded very quickly to all my questions. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay in this unit again.
