About Gary Johns

Both Gary and I grew up in the midwest and have lived all over the US (and Amsterdam). We met and married while living in Chicago. I was born and raised in Coshocton, OH and Gary was born in Houston but raised in Kansas City. We moved to Sarasota in 2004 and really love it here. Tina is a realtor for Coldwell Banker. Our plan is to eventually retire here, on Siesta Key.

Gary Johns purchased this condo in 2010

Why Gary Johns chose Siesta Key

We looked all over Sarasota and the barrier islands before deciding on Gulf & Bay. No matter where we looked, we kept coming back to this great property. The facilities and grounds are spectacular and the people are really warm and helpful. Having the Village a brief walk or shuttle away is a great benefit, with restaurants, live music, shopping, etc. The beach, beach pavilion and Sunday night drum circle are right outside our door.

Above and beyond our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

I have been visiting Siesta Key since the mid 1970's and have stayed at several of the condos along Siesta Key but this one is above and beyond all our expectations. We have gone twice and both times we have thoroughly enjoyed being at Tina and Gary's condo. The amenities are wonderful and my wife and I would recommend it to anyone that asks.

Great summer vacation

  • 5 of 5

It was a wonderful and comfortable stay. The owners were super nice and easy to deal with. The staff on property were nice and super helpful. We used all the facilities from the tennis courts, workout room, pools, pool table, and library. The condo was well equipped and we would love to stay again sometime!! :)

This condo was so clean and in prestige condition.

  • 5 of 5

The Gulf and Bay complex, in our opinion, is the best on Siesta Key. The condo had every amenity possible, and was in prestine condition .

The owners were accommodating and delightful to rent from.

Paradise in Florida

  • 5 of 5

This condo on beautiful Siesta Key has breath taking views from the lanai overlook the Gulf of Mexico. This redecorated unit is nothing short of impeccable. The unit is exceptionally well furnished, appliances are top of the line, TVs in every room and 5 star beds in two bedrooms, plus a unique queen size hide-a-bed in the living room. The grounds, large swimming pools and great fitness center add to its comfort. Our favorite vacation destination.

very relaxing family holiday in beautiful condo

  • 5 of 5

we spent the month of July (family of 4, kids ages are 10 & 13) in this condo on Siesta Key. The description and photos are completely accurate, condo is beautiful and excellently located on the beach. The gardens are beautiful and very well maintained, as the pools are too. The condo is well equipped, beautiful kitchen with a lot of space. The living room is a pleasure to be, as is the indoor balcony. The landlord and his wife are very kind, helped out with all kind of information to make our stay a true pleasure.
