Overview

About the property

Walkout the lanai, onto the sand and their is ocean, just steps away

STEP RIGHT OUT ON TO THE SAND

You will fall in love with the view of white sand and crystal clear waters from our spacious, well-decorated 2-bedroom, 2-bath condominium (beach level). You are surrounded by water and every room offers a water view. Directly on the beach. Nothing but sand between you and the ocean. Best views and best beach access on the island. Imagine opening your screened lanai door and stepping right onto the sand. The crystal blue clear gulf waters are straight ahead about 30 yards away.

There is no better view than on Siesta Key. With the close view of the ocean, it is easy to spot dolphins, manatee, and native birds during the day while lounging in beach chairs or from the comfort of the enclosed lanai, living room, or master bedroom as all have a direct ocean view. And in the evening you will be captivated by the spectacular sunsets and the soothing sounds of the surf gently lulling you to sleep - it’s all right at your doorstep! Here is the view.

THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS

Beachfront doesn't get any better than this vacation condo! Located at Turtle Beach on Siesta Key in Sarasota, Florida, this vacation home has the best of both worlds -- the beach in front and the Intercostal and boat docks in back with a heated swimming pool in the middle.

YOUR OWN BEACH - YOUR OWN BOAT DOCK

We believe our condo has the most unique setting anywhere with the Gulf of Mexico on one side and your own private dock for your boat on the other. You can go boating on Blind Pass lagoon and enter into the intercostal waterway. Almost no property has water on both sides.

BRING YOUR BOAT OR RENT ONE

If you bring your own boat, or rent one during your stay, you are welcome to use any of the boat docks at Fisherman’s Cove free of charge. We also provide a complimentary kayak and have storage if you bring your own. The property has a specially designed kayak launching dock. Please let me know if you plan a kayak outing, and I’ll tell you about some great areas to explore in the mangrove islands that are only a very short paddle from our dock.

Kayak rental and tours are also within easy walking distance; as are boat rentals, Jet Ski rentals, fishing guides and other activities. The fishing is great from both our beach and the bay. Snook, Sheephead, various members of the Jack family, Flounder and Cobia are common, and if you stay with us midyear, don’t be surprised if you hook into a large Tarpon.

About John & Lynn Dapello

My wife and I are the owners of this condo and take pride in the way it looks. This is our only rental property and we consider it our second home and you as our guests.

John & Lynn Dapello purchased this condo in 2015

Why John & Lynn Dapello chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

Our condo has been recently renovated and has a premium private location away from the outdoor showers and walkways. It’s an upscale, desirable ground floor unit with beautiful water views and spectacular sunsets. Enjoy day and nights with the refreshing sound of Gulf waves. No need to deal with elevators, stairs or walking around the outside of the building carrying beach chairs, coolers and umbrellas to the beach. Just walk out the rear Lanai door and directly onto the beach and beautiful azure waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Walk out the front door and onto your boat at the private lagoon which leads to the ICW.

Entire unit is beautifully updated, decorated and furnished. Imported tile flooring throughout. Modern fully equipped kitchen with granite counter-tops. Living area includes ceiling fan, dining table and chairs, sleeper/sofa and love seat. The entertainment center includes a new 55' HD 1080p Flat Screen TV with HD cable service and upgraded package to include 250+ channels (most other units have basic cable with 40 channels and no HD TV). Entertainment center also has a Blu-ray/DVD player and stereo. Both the Master and guest bedrooms are tastefully furnished and decorated. Each bedroom has ceiling fans, flat screen TV’s and large closets (master has a walk-in closet). Master bathroom has ceramic tile, granite counter-tops and a walk-in double shower. Guest bathroom has ceramic tile, granite counter-tops and a tub/shower.

A new Washer/Dryer is provided for your convenience and lounge chairs, beach chairs, beach toys and coolers are provided for your enjoyment.

For your convenience, your reserved parking space is straight across from the entrance.

If you have a special request, please let us know and we will try to accommodate you. We’re sure you will love our 'condo in paradise” and hope you will become a repeat guest, like so many other travelers have.

What makes this condo unique

If you prefer a small complex, without crowds and traffic, our vacation home is your vacation home.

Fisherman's Cove Condominiums have the best Location on Siesta Key! It is surrounded by water with the Gulf of Mexico on the west side and a private lagoon that leads to the inter-coastal waterway (ICW) on the east side. Swim, surf, boat, kayak, paddle board, fish, gather sea shells and shark’s teeth, or take long walks along the beach. Free boat dock provided outside your front door for trips on the ICW. Bring your own boat, or rent a boat locally for the duration of your stay and dock it here for free.

Great place to stay!

Love the location and the unit. It was great being able to walk out the back door and be on the beach. Everything is furnished including chairs, beach umbrella, fishing equipment, sports equipment - even games and books! Looking forward to going back again!

Great beachfront condo!

  • 5 of 5

This was perfect for our family of 6. Our kids our 23 to 3 so being close to the beach was very helpful. The condo was clean and had everything we needed for the beach and this made packing easy. Thanks for sharing your condo!

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved condo 101a for our vacation to Siesta Key! It was by far the nicest condo we have ever stayed in. They had all the little basic necessities like toilet paper, paper towels, etc. It was so nice not to have to buy every little thing for the week. They had a lot of beach toys (which was great for us since we have a 2 year old), chairs, umbrella, and beach towels! So helpful - less to pack! The condo has a nice home like feel to it which is so different from other condos I have stayed in which have felt very plain and basic. The absolute best part of this condo is the location! It CAN NOT be beat! Every time we would sit right outside our door on the sand, someone would walk by and say a comment about how we had the best spot in the place. It was so unbelievably nice to be able to walk like 10 feet and be on the beach. Made it so much easier for coming and going to the condo. Which when you have little ones, it is very helpful. It was so nice that we were still able to enjoy the sand and view during nap time for our daughter as our monitor would reach since we were right outside our door! The sunsets here are absolutely beautiful! I have never seen a better one! The water is perfectly clear. The sand is different than Siesta Beach (more shelly and brown) as siesta beach is like powdered sugar. I would recommend at least going once to Siesta Beach to enjoy the soft white sand. The owners are very friendly and checked in on us when we arrived and departed. They even had beer and wine waiting for us in the condo when we arrived! That was a great way to start our vacation! We can't wait to come back to condo 101a! I highly recommend this condo for your next vacation!

Even Better Than Expected

  • 5 of 5

I searched through countless websites and VRBO listings to find this little corner of heaven. So glad we picked this unit as it was perfect for our family of four. Each of our two children had his/her own bed and separate bathroom. No need to pack beach towels, umbrellas, chairs, toys, binoculars, or skim/boogie boards. All this and more is provided to guests. A bottle of wine and personal note left out upon arrival plus little water bottles and a six-pack of beer in the fridge. Also many condiments (mayo, ketchup, salad dressing, etc.), trash bags, paper towels, aluminum foil, zipper baggies, seasonings, cooking spray and countless extras. We appreciated very much that non-perishables and toiletries were tucked away – these were likely items left behind by former renters. Most owners will instruct the cleaning staff to discard everything left behind however many of the items (laundry products, shampoos/conditioners, lotions, pantry items, etc.) were so nice to have. The décor is fresh and welcoming. I only wish there was a garbage disposal and upgraded dishwasher.

We loved that the condo faces west – sunsets over the water were incredible. The best thing about this property was the proximity to Turtle Beach. We literally had the beach for a backyard. Being able to set up our umbrella & chairs in the morning and have access to the condo throughout the day was priceless. We saved hundreds on food/drink that we otherwise would have bought from a vendor and avoided the hassle of having to pack a cooler for four for the day. We did visit Siesta Key beach twice during our stay – had to put our feet in the sugary sand and experience the calmer waters in that area. But for the convenience and access, this condo can’t be beat!
