About Donna Grimmer

Hi. I'm Donna Grimmer and I have four condos that I would love to show to you. On VRBO, they are 101699, 314793 and 108307 and this one. Although I do not live in Florida, I'm on Siesta Key many times a year. My condos are personally checked to make sure that they are in excellent condition.

This spacious condo is a recent purchase, making this our fourth condo on Siesta Key. I take great pride in all of my condos and I encourage you to read the reviews that are posted on my other three condos that I have been renting for several years. My condos reflect PRIDE OF OWNERSHIP and quality. Call or email me anytime if you have questions regarding any of the four condos that I own.

Donna Grimmer purchased this condo in 2015

Why Donna Grimmer chose Siesta Key

Dave and I have been coming to Siesta Key for over 20 years and we love it. Little did I know that I would, over the course of 12 years, own 4 condos on Siesta Key...but that is a long story and I can tell you all about it at a later date. Dave and I love all of the condos but we have grown children and some grandchildren and the family is scattered across the country. Being able to have all of our family on Siesta Key at the same time, either in the winter, or for Thanksgiving, or a special holiday, is one of the best reasons why we have these places and why we have chosen to share them with others as well.

What makes this condo unique

You will be hard pressed to find a place like this one. The views are the best that I have seen on Siesta Key. By day you can see the beach, the boats on the Gulf, downtown Sarasota and the intracoastal as it winds its way north. Evenings are beautiful with huge sunsets and when the sun is gone for the night, you then can experience the lights of the key below and all around. There are places that just focus on the water and then at night, all you have is a pitch blackness. Here on the 9th floor at The Anchorage, there is the beauty of the day, and then there is the beauty of the lights of the evening. Having purchased this condo in May of 2015, we have begun the task of remodeling the place and it is coming along beautifully. Give it a try. You will be pleased you did.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just a quick note to tell you how much my family enjoyed your place at the

Anchorage#911! It was beautiful beyond belief and convenient to everything

on the key! We will definitely be renting again! Just wonderful! Thank

you, ann Marie

Beautifully decorated, well equipped and spacious with fantastic view!

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved every minute in this gorgeous unit! The kitchen was well equipped and had everything you would need to prepare a great meal, the beds were comfortable, and the beach toys and pool noodles were loved by my grandchildren! You really could not ask for more when it comes to vacation rentals, this unit excelled all expectations!

Owner's Response: Hi Debbie, Thank you for the wonderful review. We love Siesta Key and this condo lets us view it from Gulf to Bay to downtown Sarasota. This is our second home as we are here from January to April and then in and out during the year. We do my very best to keep all four of our condos fresh, up-to-date and a place that wonderful people such as yourself, will truly enjoy. Please come back again in the future as you will always be welcome back to any of our properties here on the key. Sincerely, Donna Grimmer

Fabulous Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our first stay in Siesta Key.

Absolutely beautiful, comfortable condo! Couldn't ask for better amenities. Donna, I love how all the kitchen cabinets are labeled and stocked with more than you could need from service ware to beach towels etc.,. We are a 3 generation family, grandparents, parents, teenagers and elementary age. Perfect for all. Beach, paddle board, pool, fishing, barbecue & restaurants, grocery- plus I found my heaven Trader Joe's. Thanks, again.

Owner's Response: Hi Joan, Thank you for the great review. The kitchen cabinet labelling is pretty much something that I do at all of the condos that I have on the key, and with the size of the kitchen at this place, I needed labels just for my own well-being when I am staying there. The place is still 'new' for me. I am glad that you enjoyed the new furnishings and I am on a continued journey of change each time I visit the place. I love it and want to make sure that other who stay here, love it too. Thanks again Donna G.

One of our best family vacations

  • 4 of 5

This condo was truly our home away from home. It was clean, beautiful views, and had everything at our fingertips to make for a relaxing and fun stay. The only thing that was a minor bother was the noise the air conditioning made in the master bedroom. It just took a little getting use to at night. However, it did not disturb us enough that we wouldn't come back. We had such a great vacation, we are thinking about coming back again next year.

Owner's Response: Hi Jill, Thank you for the very nice review. I have to agree with you that the air conditioning unit bothered me at first, but I got used to that hum. If I could change the layout of the units for the building, I surely would, but, with that said, I have tried to make the condo a quality vacation rental with very good furnishings, lots of extras in the kitchen, towels and linens and beach towels that are just for my condo (not in a linen program) and a top quality cleaning group who takes pride in their work. I hope that you will come back again as you are welcome back to any of the four condos that I have on the key. Sincerely, Donna Grimmer

Amazing Condo!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at a number of places on Siesta Key over the years and this condo was definitely one of the best! Extremely clean, very spacious, well decorated, comfortable beds and the owners have literally thought of just about everything you will need and then some to make your stay a great experience. The balcony across every bedroom and views were spectacular and there was plenty of seating. Breakfast on the balcony with the gulf breezes was a great way to start the day not to mention enjoying the lights of Siesta Key and downtown Sarasota at night. We had 5 adults and 3 small children and the condo had more than enough space and beds for everyone (one of the few condos that will allow 8 people). The complex itself was also very nice with a big pool we also enjoyed along with other amenities. What you see in the pictures is exactly what you get which is not always the case. Next vacation we bring the family I would definitely book this condo again. Thanks to the Grimmers for sharing!

Owner's Response: Hi Steve, Wow! You love the place as much as we do! Thank you. I do try and have everything at the place that a guest of mine would need and it is great to hear that your vacation went well. Please keep me in mind if you come back to Siesta Key in the future. You were an excellent guest and I have four condos that you are welcome to use if you come back. Sincerely, Donna G
