About the property

Just what you have been looking for....Our condo has it all!

Our unit is centrally located in the middle of 14 acres of some of the lushest property on Siesta Key. Midnight Cove II is not a property of concrete and blacktop driveways. Stay with us and you will enjoy a beautiful paver drive and walkways surrounded by acres of greenery, palms, shrubbery and grass. We boast of a private Association owned marina that leads into the vast inter-coastal waterway. You can bring your own boat or rent one here for on the water fun. A kayak launch is available at the rear of the property and rentals are located a short walk from our complex.. Stroll along our marina dock and walkway and you may find a manatee lazing in the water. Fish abound should you have the urge to cast a line.

Siesta Key is home to Crescent Beach, the #1 best rated beach in the U.S.A. for 2017. It is consistently rated among the top 10 U.S. beaches each year and it is exactly 500 steps away. The sand of Crescent Beach is most unique and must be walked on to appreciate its unusual qualities. No matter how hot the temperature, Crescent Beach sand remains cool to your feet. It is so soft that that it has been compared to baby powder. It is truly a beach walker's paradise. Access to beautiful Crescent and Siesta Key Beach is directly across the road from our complex. There is a traffic control device to stop vehicles so even in heavy traffic periods crossing is safe and easy. The beach is mere steps from our front door through a private walkway with gated access. On Sunday evenings do not miss the Drum Circle at the Public Beach where musicians perform a whimsical goodbye to the sun as it sets for the day. Parking is free.

Siesta Key also offers a free trolley service that will transport you along Midnight Pass Rd. and Ocean Blvd.. No need to drive your car. You can access Siesta Key Village to the north with its many shops, boutiques and restaurants or travel south to Turtle Beach and Turtles Restaurant.

Our heated pool, 85 degrees year 'round, and the adjoining clubhouse are steps away from our condo. Our pool is among the finest on Siesta Key with a view that is spectacular. Chairs, tables and loungers are available for you as you relax by glistening waters.

For the athletically inclined, we have basketball and tennis courts too as well as a mini gym adjacent to our office where you will find a universal machine, elliptical machine, treadmill and balance ball.

You can cook a steak or barbeque some ribs at our picnic area where you will find gas and charcoal grills for your grilling pleasure. Enjoy a

a glass of wine as you watch the boats pass through the inter-coastal waterway from the observation deck at the rear of our complex.

Our first floor unit is nicely appointed with leather furniture in the living room as well as a computer table with stools. Two full baths make for easy living. Your guests can shower at the same you do. There is a 65" flat screen smart TV in the living and a flat screen TV in each bedroom. The master bedroom features a King bed with dresser and two night stands. Our guest bedroom features a Queen bed with night stand and dresser. Both bedrooms include mirrored closet doors providing a roomy feel to both rooms. There is a ceiling fan in each bedroom.

We feature a fully stocked kitchen with everything you would need to prepare meals from casual to gourmet. You can take your meals to our comfortable dining area or eat in the kitchen at our beautiful granite countertop.

Linens and towels are provided free of charge. We offer secure free hi speed wireless internet service inside our unit for those wanting to stay connected so there is no need to search for a 'hot spot'.

In short, you will feel 'at home' in our home. We promise you will not be disappointed.

About Frank Donovan

We are seniors who raised 8 children and now have time to take life a bit easier. I am a retired City of Buffalo fire battalion chief and my wife is a retired credit analyst. Our children reside in the eastern U.S.A. and we enjoy visiting them and spending time with our many grandchildren. We follow the Buffalo Bills and Sabres and enjoy swimming, gardening and volunteering for church activities. Spending time with friends is something we also enjoy very much.

Frank Donovan purchased this condo in 2005

Why Frank Donovan chose Siesta Key

Friends introduced us to Siesta Key and after one visit we decided we wanted to spend more time there. The crystal clear waters of the Gulf of Mexico and the unique quartz sand of Crescent Beach were the deciding factors in our purchase of a vacation home in Midnight Cove II. The location of our condo with the view of the marina and closeness to the pool made it the ideal place for us. Tampa and its international airport are only a 45 minute drive away. Disney World and Busch Gardens are also easy reachable vacation destinations from our condo.

What makes this condo unique

Exactly 500 steps to beautiful Crescent Beach with sand like no other beach in the world. Take an evening stroll along the beach and watch the sunset over the beautiful Gulf of Mexico.

Close to association pool heated year round.

Walking distance to food shopping and restaurants.

Beautiful grounds and plush greenery abound on 14 rolling acres.

Fish from our marina just steps from the condo.

Close to everything yet away from it all!

Lovely property

  • 5 of 5

This property was a lovely property, great location next to the communal pool and a 200 yard walk from the glorious Siesta beach 🏖

We have been coming to Midnightcove for about 18 years and this property is up there with the best.

We had one little issue, that the property didn’t have a washer dryer which all the units that we have rented have had,not to much if an issue though.

Thanks again Frank

Owner's Response: Hi Stevie, Glad you enjoyed your stay at our place. Sorry about the lack of the washer and dryer in our unit but we opted to give ourselves and renters the most space that we could when we remodeled. We took note of the close proximity to the association owned washers and dryers next to the office and made the decision that we did. Thank you for your nice review and please come back again when you vacation on Siesta Key. Regards, Frank and Dorothy

Property was well kept.

  • 4 of 5

Our stay from 6/24/17 to 7/1/17 at the property of Frank Donovan's in Siesta Key was amazing. It accommodated our needs. It could use a little updating on some things and carpets & rugs could of used a shampooing. But overall it was well stocked with everything we needed. We definitely would use this property again. Close to everything including the beach.

Thank you Again

Owner's Response: Angie, Thanks for your positive review. We are disappointed that the carpeting and rugs did not meet your approval and will take steps to have them cleaned. With folks coming and going, it is not always easy to stay on top of that but please know that customer satisfaction is our first priority. Thanks for bringing that to our attention. Regards, Frank and Dorothy Donovan

Fabulous time in Siesta Key

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed here for a week with friends. The condo, complex and beach surpassed our expectations. The condo is large immaculate and very comfortable. We had 5 people and we all felt like we had enough space and a comfortable place to sleep. We made good use of the facilities including the great salt water swimming pool and the barbeque complex. The best feature was the beach. The condo is quick walking distance with a private access gate. The beach is beautiful sugar fine white sand the water was lovely. The condo is close to shopping and a great local fish market. Siesta key is a quaint town with great shopping and services. We are definitely going to keep the condo information handy as we would not hesitate to return for a future visit. Easy access from Tampa. Frank and Dorothy are super easy to work with. Had great communication with them and detailed instructions for the trip. Thanks for a great time

Wonderful vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this terrific vacation home! This condo was better than the photos: beautiful, clean, well stocked kitchen, and comfy bed. We did not use the second bedroom which also had it's own bath. The grounds were immaculately kept, the pool was beautiful, and it was close and convenient to local pubs, shopping, and restaurants. The beach is just a short walk from the condo and Frank and Dorothy were wonderful to deal with.

We knew we were home when we walked into the master bedroom and found the print over the bed was the same as the one over our fireplace!

We would come back here tomorrow....if only we had more vacation time!!

Thanks so much for sharing your lovely home with us!

Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

This condo was beautiful, clean, kitchen was well stocked with pots,pans etc for cooking meals, easy access to beach and pool on site, great view of cove. Very reasonably priced.

Since there isn't a lot of parking in downtown Siesta Key we took the bus one evening to not have to worry about parking. The pickup location was right outside the cove entrance. Just need to get bus schedule.

So many wonderful restaurants in walking distance or downtown Siesta Key. You can rent scooters, kayaks, paddle boards, jet skis, and bicycles close by within walking distance of condo. As you can see there are many options so you can do much or very little in a day. We even saw a dolphin swimming in the bay outside of condo area. Very relaxing vacation and would definitely rent it again. Weather was perfect. Owners are great, very kind and always responded to me quickly.

Beautiful Area and Lovely Condo!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay in Siesta Key, Florida, and I have to say it was absolutely charming. Our condo was comfortable, very clean, and welcoming. We all enjoyed coming home there after the end of a long day at the beach or running around Sarasota. This condo was also priced so reasonably and well worth it. The owners were accommodating and kind, great at communication. The grounds are so scenic here with lots of grassy areas and the intercoastal waterway flowing in behind (fishermen and kayakers will love it), and Crescent Beach is an enchanting place to take long walks on the beach and watch the sunsets! Also, we went to see The Ringling Art Museum and grounds and John and Mabel Ringling's gracious home in Sarasota, and anyone visiting this area would love that experience. One day we also went kayaking with Adventure Kayak Outfitters. Dan was our guide, and he was so informative and fun :). We saw manatees bobbing in the water right off the bat! As far as driving in this area, it's a breeze...not real trafficky in Sarasota, lots to see and do, great places to shop so bring your car/van or rent a car. Grab your groceries at a Publix store before coming over the Stickney Bridge onto Midnight Pass Road. The Village in Siesta Key is a fun place to shop, too. Mmmm, Ciao Gelatto has my <3!

Now back to the beaches...We went to Siesta Key Public Beach (great concession stand and this one has restrooms), Crescent Beach, Turtle Beach, and Lido Beach. All were beautiful! Siesta Key and Crescent Beaches were our favorites. The soft white sand is heavenly. The water is this exquisite mix of azure blues and pale aqua greens, with gentle lapping waves. We stayed in the ocean all day! Turtle Beach is great for fishermen, too. Lido was nice and quiet with a concession stand whose food was delicious. The bottom line is you can't go wrong when visiting Siesta Key. It's a sweet vacation spot. You might even end up wanting to live there! I know I do!
