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.

Siesta Key - Best Beach Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Gary and Tina's condo at Gulf & Bay. This updated condo is beautiful and has everything you could possibly want for a fantastic vacation. We loved waking up in the morning to the view of the well-manicured grounds and beach beyond. With 3 pools, gym, shuffleboard, racquetball, tennis and pickleball courts, we never ran out of things to do. Most afternoons were spent relaxing on the amazing white sands of the beach. We loved walking along the beach to Siesta Key Village for dinner and then grabbing a free shuttle back to the condo. We will be back!

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.

A great place to stay

We have stayed in the same condo twice this year. Both times were very enjoyable. The owner was easy to deal with and attentive to our needs.

Siesta Key is a barrier island located off the coast of Sarasota, Florida. If playing in the gulf and soaking up the sun is not your thing there is plenty to do in town. Sarasota offers ballet, live theatre, opera, Selby Gardens, numerous golf courses, many casual and fine dining options, two shopping malls, museums, a wild cat habitat, and a nearby polo field to name a few.
