About Kathy Parker

We vacationed in Florida for years with our family before deciding to purchase our condo, and we are very happy with the Midnight Cove II location. The office staff is fabulous and helpful, and the grounds are beautiful. We have enjoyed remodeling our unit, creating an open and inviting space.

We love spending time at the beach and at area attractions. Siesta Key Oyster Bar is not to be missed! Kids will love the Circus Museum at the Ringling, the Mote Aquarium, and the Sarasota Jungle Gardens. Adults will enjoy chartered boat trips, theater performances, and the Drum Circle on the beach. Nature lovers will find Myakka State Park fascinating!

We still have kids in school, so we can't get to Florida from Connecticut as often as we would like - but we hope you will enjoy your stay. I am happy to share ideas with you about things to do in and around Siesta Key!

Kathy Parker purchased this condo in 2013

Why Kathy Parker chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

We really liked the lush landscaping at Midnight Cove II. There are lots of condos in Siesta Key, but Midnight Cove II offers the best blend of indoor and outdoor space.

What makes this condo unique

To be honest, we didn't really appreciate all of the great benefits of this property when we bought it. The traffic can actually be a challenge on Siesta Key, but Midnight Cove is close to the southern causeway, so it is easy to get 'off island' when you want to. A nearby gourmet market and restaurants mean that you don't really have to use a car once you arrive! Having the beach right across the street is fabulous, and a dedicated cross walk means not ever having to wait. During the tourist season, there are tennis round-robins and special events at the clubhouse like ice cream socials. The office staff is absolutely fabulous - a real plus for owners who can't be there all the time. (Note - picture is from Iceland, not Florida!)

Was nice. But misinforming about rentals of beach lounge chairs between Midnight Cove I and II

  • 3 of 5

Did not agree with the separation of beach chairs between midnight cove 1 and midnight cove II. Seemed discriminating never seen a separation of beach lounges at a resort.

Owner's Response: Hi Holly, I am glad that you enjoyed your stay and thought it was nice! I'm sorry that you felt you were misinformed about beach chairs, but since we never corresponded about them I'm not sure what the misunderstanding was!. In addition to a fully-equipped kitchen, BBQ tools, cooler - there are 6 beach chairs available in the unit to take to the beach. Two are larger (more comfortable, but bulkier) and four are smaller (but really easy to bring to the beach). Siesta Key is a lovely beach, and complexes guard their chairs carefully! Midnight Cove I and II are actually separate complexes - luckily the beach is HUGE with plenty of room for all. I wish you many happy vacations, and hope you will return to MCII. Kathy

It was nice, fine, lovely

  • 4 of 5

The unit was clean when we checked in and they called me to let me know as soon as our unit was ready - three hours earlier than anticipated.

The kitchen was perfect in terms of appliances and the master bedroom was spacious and quite nice. The water pressure in the shower was great and there were plenty of towels for us to use - both for the beach and for the unit.

I was there will my two children, and I must say, the size was perfect. Though is advertises that it sleeps 6, that would be a tight fit. There is not a lot of extra space.

Two issues: there were no kitchen accouterments at all except salt and pepper. I had to purchase dish soap, dishwashing detergent, and I was given a couple of garbage bags because there we not extras in the unit. Also, my children told me that the bed in the guest room was so squeaky that they would not sleep on it so my son slept on the pull-out sofa and my daughter slept with me. Perhaps this is something that can be looked in to!

Overall, I would stay here again. Proximity to the beach was fantastic. The pool here is wonderful. It was a nice relaxing vacation spent with the kids.

Owner's Response: Jackie & David - I'm so glad you had a nice time, and absolutely agree that the beach and pool are wonderful! Siesta Key and Sarasota are getting lots of attention for the world-class sandy beaches, good restaurants, and interesting cultural activities. And Midnight Cove II keeps investing in the property, with recent updates to the whole pool deck and club house. I am glad that you are interested in staying again. I certainly want to address your concerns! First of all, I am not sure where the information about the unit sleeping 6 came from? On VRBO it definitely says 4, and this is absolutely the limit. Some units have pull out couches, etc, but as this one doesn't we limit the visitors to 4. So you are absolutely right, 6 would not work. I will check into the squeaky bed in the guest room - I had not heard this complaint before and maybe the headboard is loose . . . glad you were able to work around it. On the plus side, the cleaning staff is REALLY good and the unit is always very clean for new visitors. On the negative side, they tend to take EVERYTHING out - leftover food in the fridge (good) but also items such as liquid soap (not so good!) . . . I will look into a solution. I can probably stock extras of these items in the outside closet. I will also mention this to Michelle in the office and see if there is a "standard" expectation for the cleaning crew to leave extra garbage bags, liquid soap, etc. Many thanks and hope to see you again soon! Kathy

Excelente lugar para descansar sin preocupaciones !!

  • 5 of 5

El complejo Midnight Cove II está en una excelente ubicación al ingresar al Siesta Key, a sólo 1 cuadra del puente de ingreso, lo que permite llegar o salir muy fácilmente para hacer compras o paseos fuera de Siesta Key.

El departamento es excelente, está amoblado y decorado con muy buen gusto. Todo está en perfectas condiciones, nuevo, limpio y recientemente pintado. Todo coincide con las fotografias que pueden verse en la webpage. El living cocina-comedor es muy amplio con cómodos sillones y un gran TV LED, las habitaciones son muy amplias y bien separadas una de otra, y hay 2 baños muy prácticos. La cocina cuenta con todas las comodidades, horno, microondas, lavavajilla y todos los utensilios y vajilla que pueda necesitarse. La terraza es amplia, muy privada y se puede tomar sol, descansar o comer con vista hacia el parque y la laguna. Los servicios de wifi y TV satelital funcionan perfectamente.

El complejo Midnight Cove II es muy cómodo y seguro, el parque está en perfectas condiciones al igual que la piscina y todos los espacios comunes. La piscina está climatizada, muy limpia y bien mantenida, a solo 100 mts. del departamento y puede utilizarse hasta las 10 pm. El parking asignado para el dpto. está directamente al frente al bajar la escalera. La única desventaja para personas mayores es que para este departamento se requiere subir 2 pisos por escalera.

La playa es muy tranquila y está a solo 5 minutos caminando, la arena es blanca, el mar transparente y los atardeceres son únicos para disfrutar la playa hasta último momento del día. Hay sillones disponible en la playa (según orden de llegada), ademas de los que estan disponibles en el locker del departamento.

Para quienes gustan de hacer compras, el Ellenton Premium Outlets está a sólo 25 millas, y además hay varios Mall en las cercanías de Siesta Key como el Westfield Mall a solo 5 millas y muchas otras tiendas conocidas que quieran visitarse. También es recomendable visitar el area de Sarasota Downtown, Lido Key, St. Armands Key (con muchas tiendas y restaurantes) y en Siesta Key también puede encontrarse un area de bares y restaurantes en el Ocean Blvd. a menos de 10 minutos en auto desde el departamento.

Excelente lugar para recomendar y pasar unas vacaciones muy tranquilas considerando todos los detalles Complejo, Departamento, Playa y el Area de Sarasota. Si se maneja en auto desde Miami Intl Airport, debe considerarse un tiempo de 03:45 horas aproximadamente (340 kms)

Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this cozy, clean and updated condo. Location was a bonus as we enjoy walking, and there were several restaurants and shops on the southern end of the island that were within walking distance. It is also convenient to be close to the bridge to get off the island as traffic can get busy on Midnight Pass Road. The spacious lanai was great for morning coffee or afternoon drinks. We had our own parking space which is quite close to the condo. Washer and dryer are in a building right outside the condo. It was a bit of a hike to the third floor, but good exercise. We appreciated having beach chairs to take with us to the beach.

We weren't sure about going to the drum circle on Siesta Beach, but turned out to be quite fun and people watching was great; the sunset from there was beautiful. We drove to the Siesta Key Beach a couple of times to walk. It is very large and clean. There are also concessions and clean bathrooms, as well as a large free parking lot. We went on the LeBarge cruise that left Sarasota Harbor. The weather was fabulous, the singing, drinks, snacks, watching the sunset, and enjoying a view of the million dollar Sarasota homes made for a memorable evening.

Customer service was very good and we would recommend this condo to friends. We hope to come back to Siesta Key again some day!

Owner's Response: I'm so glad that you enjoyed your stay! When we purchased the condo, we didn't fully appreciate how convenient it would be to everything. Like you, we have walked to nearby restaurants and made good use of the Crescent Beach Grocery Store. We also recommend Clayton's Siesta Grille restaurant. Glad you made it to the Drum Circle. It is definitely a great experience. Hope to see you again soon!

ten days of feel good in a nice holiday home

  • 5 of 5

we are a family from Germany and had a very good time in this vacation rental during Christmas and New Year 2015/2016. We booked and payed it a few month before in Germany without any problems. When we arrived on Wednesday Dec 23 everything was exactly as described und illustrated at www.homeaway.com. The holiday flat is light-flooded, very clean and very quiet, because it' s the top floor. The flat is very well equipped with everything you need. We missed nothing neither in the kitchen nor in the living-room, the two bedrooms and the bathroom. We liked the bright colours of walls and furnitures because this maritime style is exactly the right one for a home 200 meters to the Gulf of Mexico. Every morning we had a sunny breakfast at the large balcony, without mosquitos at that time of the year. Thanks to Kathy, which arranged a Christmas decoration for us. If we will return to Florida sometimes , we will definitely rent this flat again.

Owner's Response: We were so glad to be able to decorate for the holidays for you. And we hope to get to Germany sometime. Our daughter is also in highschool, so we knew your daughter would enjoy the beach and the many activities the area has to offer. Having secure WiFi was probably important for her, too. Thanks for sharing the photos of the family with the Christmas tree! Best wishes for a great 2016.

Car: recommended

Siesta Key is a narrow barrier island off the west coast of Florida. It is just over an hour south of Tampa International Airport. Siesta Key is part of Sarasota, the cultural capital of Florida. Sarasota is home to the Ringling Art Museum, the Asolo Reperatory Theater, the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens, Mote Marine Aquarium, and the Sarasota Jungle Gardens. Siesta Key is most known for its #1 ranked Crescent Beach, its vibrant music scene, and wonderful restaurants. While the beach is public, parking can be limited and having walking beach access is key!
