Overview

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

Opera

Ballet

Selby Botanical Gardens

Fine or casual dining

Saturday Farmer's Market &

More

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.

This condo owner obviously takes pride in her property.

  • 4 of 5

Quite nice! This is our third year at this property and second year in this condo. The condo itself has all the amenities you need for a great beach vacation. The shared pool had some challenges with other guests observing rules, but we simply left the pool if those challenges were there. This condo owner obviously takes pride in her property. We will definitely be back as often as we can!

This is the perfect place to stay if you are headed to Siesta Key! The condo is just beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is perfectly located at the entrance to the Siesta Key public beach. You could not ask for a more conveniently located place to stay. It is a short walk across the street and then you are literally on the beautiful white sand of Siesta Key. The condo is beautiful inside. The kitchen is very well stocked with pots and pans. The owner has everything you need for the beach. She has chairs, umbrellas, a beach wagon, towels, buckets, shovels and even a little boogie board for the kids. The condo is very clean and it makes you feel right at home. It is beautifully decorated. You can sit on the porch and look right across the street at the beautiful beach and watch the sunset and sunrise. The property also has a very nice pool and a clubhouse for you to use. My family and I had an awesome stay at this condo. We were sad to leave. We will definitely be returning again and staying here. The owner is very nice to work with. She was always willing to answer any questions I had and she also had a book with directions to grocery stores and local attractions. She really has thought of everything to make your stay wonderful. My family and I look forward to returning to this beautiful place.

Nice condo in a great location with easy beach access

  • 4 of 5

My family and I would like to thank Kim for the nice condo. The condo is decorated tastefully and fully met all of our needs(4 adults and 1 toddler). Anything you need for the beach is in the condo(chairs, umbrella, towels, etc...).

Our family enjoyed our weeklong visit to Siesta Key and plan to return and hopefully stay in Kim's condo. She was easy to deal with and as other reviews state provides little things such as a roll of quarters for laundry(nice touch).

We couldn't have asked for a more convention location even though it's not "beach front". The Siesta Key pavilion is right across the street and an easy few minute walk to the beautiful beach.

Thanks Mark and family!

Family beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 12 year old daughter, 9 year old son and I had an amazing family vacation here in Siesta Key. This was our first time in Siesta Key and I spent tons of time finding just the right place to stay. The reviews of this condo unit steered me to pick it and I could not have picked a better location. From the very first contact, the owner, Kimberly has been amazing to work with. The condo is beautifully furnished with every single amenity you could think of! You only need to pack your clothes. The kitchen is fully stocked from complimentary first cup of coffee to the quarters for laundry. Internet access is fast and secure! Plenty of bath towels and beach towels. And speaking of the beach, Kimberly has thought of everything, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, beach mats, boogie board, sand toys, plus the best part a large beach wagon to make it easy to tote it all down! Wonderful screened in deck to enjoy morning coffee on and such a short walk across the street to the beach! The beds were super comfy and we all commented on how well we slept!! You can't go wrong with this condo and I know we already can't wait to book again for another wonderful family vacation!

Owner's Response: I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. I try to equip the condo with all the creature comforts I would want if I were on vacation. It is truly an amazing location - directly across the street from the #1 Beach in the Country. I hope you will book another stay in the future. Thank you for taking the time to write a review.

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)

The main attraction is world renowned Siesta Key Beach - walk, swim, raft or just plain relax under your beach umbrella.

You will find plenty of restaurants, bars, shops, dining and nightlife at Siesta Key Village, which is 1.1 miles from La Siesta.

If you enjoy theater, opera, ballet, art galleries, museums and more, Siesta Key is 7 miles from downtown Sarasota. Sarasota is the home of the Van Wezel Performing Arts Center and the Ringling Museum.
