Top Floor 2 Bed 2 Bath End Unit Directly Across The Street From Siesta Key Beach

Bedrooms 2
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

Open floor plan. Views of the beach from kitchen, dinette, family room & master

No 5% to 9% customer service fee for this owner operated unit! Luxury is the best way to describe this condo. All new furniture in November of 2015 in this beautiful 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom top-floor (4th Floor) end unit. The Master Bedroom has a Queen-sized Bed, a built-in office unit, TV & 2 closets. The 2nd bedroom has 2 twin beds, TV, closets and private 2nd bathroom. You don't need to share your bathroom with your guests!

The kitchen has stainless steel refrigerator, stove and dishwasher and is full equipped for cooking and entertaining. Best of all, no walls separate the kitchen from the dinette and the living room. Enjoy sunset views from the kitchen! There is also an outdoor grill.

The living room is newly furnished with a sleeper sofa for 2 additional guests, 2 incredibly comfortable contemporary chairs, and a flat-screen TV.

OH THAT BEACH! Year 2015 sees the completion of a $28 million dollar renovation bringing to the already voted #1 beach in the country an esplanade, a beach restaurant serving fine-food like Cilantro Lime Chicken, a brand new play ground, tennis courts, a new pavilion and restrooms and much more! You won't experience better fine white quartz silky smooth sand anywhere in the country.

From your screened outdoor lanai overlooks all of this beauty and excitement. End your day feeling the cool bay breezes while you sip your evening cocktail and watch the sun slip off the edge of the earth over the breaking waves!

La Siesta Condominium is not a high rise. It is a 79 unit resort-like 4-story, 4 building complex which preserves the native feel of Siesta Key. Each building has an elevator and coin-operated washers and dryers.

La Siesta has all of the amenities you expect from a vacation resort, including a heated swimming pool, shuffleboard, pool table, table tennis, exercise equipment and covered parking. If you choose to entertain a group while you are here, there is a clubhouse with a fully equipped kitchen.

La Siesta is located 1 mile from Siesta Village. Most guests walk the beach to the Village. There you will find casual and fine dining, outdoor music, shops, bars and nightly entertainment and dancing. Or, you may want to rent a scooter or small motor vehicle for your vacation stay.

If you tire of the beach you can travel 7 miles to downtown Sarasota. There you will find:

Professional theater



Selby Botanical Gardens

Fine or casual dining

Saturday Farmer's Market &


Travel another 2 miles and you will find:

Ringling Museum of Art

Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall

St. Armand's Circle &

Mote Marine

If you are a golfer, there are more golfing opportunities than I have room to describe within a short distance from Siesta Key.

For our nature enthusiasts you can visit Myakka State Park and Oscar Scherer State, Park. You can hike, bike, boat and get a close-up of Florida's nature and wildlife.

Please call if you have any questions.

I look forward to helping make your stay at Siesta Key the best experience ever!

About Kimberly A. Colgate

I love Siesta Key. I am a local tax and real attorney and a real estate broker with Private Wealth Realty, Inc.

Kimberly A. Colgate purchased this condo in 2015

Why Kimberly A. Colgate chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

La Siesta is truly unique. It is located directly across the street from the #1 beach in the country and #3 in the world. You are steps away from sand that has led to Siesta Key Beach being voted #1 in the Country and #3 in the world. And Oh those views. You can sit on the lanai of this top-floor end unit and watch the sun sink into the Gulf or you can walk across the street and dig your feet into the sand.

What makes this condo unique

Proximity to the beach.

Heated swimming pool.

Small work-out room.

Completely remodeled and furnished unit.

High speed Wi-Fi

A flat screen TV in each room.

ANOTHER Wonderful Week!

  • 5 of 5

We had another wonderful week in this condo! Siesta Key Beach is rated the #1 beach in the US and this condo is the perfect location to enjoy it! Located directly across the street from the entrance to the beach, this end unit, top floor gives perfect views of the gulf and the powdery white beach. This year, we took my parents, who are in their 80's and they LOVED it! My parents loved drinking their morning coffee on the screened in porch, as well as watching the beautiful sunsets. Kim's unit is SO clean and well stocked and she is WONDERFUL to work with. We especially appreciate the beach towels, chairs, umbrella and the wagon that are provided to carry all of your supplies to the beach! The kitchen is very well stocked with appliances and dishes. The furniture is all comfortable and hardly looks used! The master bed is SO COMFY!! And there are PLENTY of nice, clean towels to stock the bathrooms. Thank you Kim for sharing your condo with us again!!

Owner's Response: I am so pleased you had a wonderful stay. It makes me so happy to provide my guests with a great experience. It helps to have the number 1 beach in the country steps away! I hope to see you again.

Look no further. This condo has it all!

  • 5 of 5

We loved celebrating Christmas week with our family at this lovely condo. The condo is directly across the street from the main entrance to Siesta Key Beach which makes is so convenient to just cross over and soon your feet are on the most beautiful powder soft sand. The end-unit, top floor condo is bright and airy with ample seating on the outdoor balcony hosting beautiful sunsets. My husband and I also enjoyed the balcony most mornings as a "coffee date" =). The furniture and decor are newer and in great condition. We felt at home here! We had a ball making gingerbread men and yummy treats and desserts in the well-stocked kitchen. Kimberly (the Owner) thought of everything! She even had left a roll of quarters for us to do our laundry! There were plenty of white fluffy towels, clean sheets & blankets, beach towels & chairs, beach toys...we LOVED the beach wagon also..it made it so easy to pack-up and get all our gear to the beach considering we had lots of stuff with 4 adults & 2 kids in tow! Our kids loved the condo too. They enjoyed the heated pool and the amenities that the condo had to offer. We felt safe and secure at this location. The condo is also in walking/biking distance to Siesta Village. I took my husband out for a nice b-day dinner at the Lobster Pot. We also had a private charter boat tour (KokoMo Charters) which we highly recommend and took a nice sunset tour (we even seen dolphins!) There is plenty to do in Siesta Key. This was our first trip as a family to Siesta Key and it sure won't be our last. We have stayed at many many other beach condos in other "hot" spots up and down the coast and the gulf. By far, this condo is one of our top choices thus far...Christmas was magical here. The best gifts in life are spending quality time creating memories with your family and friends..Thanks again Kimberly for making our stay memorable and for your extra attention to detail! Blessings, The Marcos Family (Central Florida)

Wonderful Vacation Location

  • 5 of 5

Kimberly, Thank you so much for sharing your condo with us. Everything you needed or wanted is provided. It was so nice not to have to worry with a key, the code pad is great. Great location, beautiful condo, super clean, world class beach, sunsets and morning walks on the beach. Loved spending time on the balcony, especially with the morning cup of coffee. Thanks for the beach items, nothing to go buy just enjoy!! Cannot wait to come back.

Perfect, Ideal Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

After researching hundreds of other places in Siesta Key to stay we FINALLY chose this place. When we walked in we immediately knew we chose the right place. I am extremely picky and this met all of our needs and expectations. This was our first time traveling with our 3 year old daughter, and she fell in love with her 'Florida home'. The location, view, and proximity to the beach and village was perfect. We also loved the pool area and fitness center. It also comes with all the beach necessities for us and our daughter, which was very nice! Thank you for making our first family vacation one we truly enjoyed and will remember forever. This might not be our last visit!

Would definitely book again!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I wanted a condo directly on the beach for our first Siesta Key experience. After seeing the prices (even in July), we reconsidered and eventually booked this condo. Great decision! On our morning walks, we passed many of the pricier condos and were happier with our location across the street from the most beautiful stretch of beach. Kimberly was truthful in telling us, that while you could see the gulf, Beach Road and the public parking lot are between the building and the beach. The view was still awesome.

Upon our arrival (much earlier than check in time), Kimberly allowed us to check in. The condo was very nice (looked exactly like the pictures) and was extremely clean and comfortable. Beginning every day with coffee on the screened in porch was perfect.

The very short walk to the beach made this an excellent location. Kimberly provided beach chairs, an umbrella, towels, and a beach cart. The pool was great. The grounds were well maintained. We found everything we needed for a great vacation.

We would definitely book this condo again. Kimberly Colgate was extremely easy to work with and refunded our security deposit within days. Looking forward to visiting again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review my condo. I believe La Siesta is one of the best locations on Siesta Key. My top floor end unit does have a lovely view of the beach and the sunsets are awesome. There is no better endorsement than from a pleased guest. I hope you come again! Kim Colgate

We had a wonderful time.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time although the weather didn't cooperate. The condo was fully furnished with everything you need and then some. The paper products in the kitchen were a great help and the quarters for the laundry were an unexpected surprise. The closeness to the beach was wonderful and a perfect little walk. I would recommend this to anyone. We hope to be able to come back.
