House of the Sun has fourth and fifth floor decks with tables, chairs and lounge chairs and is a popular spot for sunset and the breathtaking panoramic views of Siesta Key Beach. Our HEATED POOL, and PRIVATE TENNIS COURTS overlook the gulf.

Guests of House of the Sun enjoy bringing their evening cocktails and snacks to the FIFTH FLOOR DECK where a horn is typically blown at sunset every evening. CHARCOAL GRILLS are availble with a beautiful picnic area that overlooks the beauty of the Gulf.
If you want a stress-free drive-free vacation, away from the public beach but still on the beautiful quartz crystal sands of Siesta Key Beach, this is one to consider.

This was the 2nd time we have rented this condo. It is clean, has all the amenities and in a great location. What is really nice is being able to access keys in the lock box and not have to formally check in or out. Owner is very responsive. I would definitely recommend this condo.

Owner response: Hi Susan and Steve, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I love having you as one of my many repeat guests. Just remember, if you can't get into this condo, I have two other condos that you may also enjoy...and, as with this one, they also have access via lock box. Take care and Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas!
Loved everything about this condo

Loved the amenities and all of your attention to detail in the emails you sent me. I feel like you really want your guest to get the most out of there stay at your condo. The condo was very clean and had everything we needed but food/drinks. Loved that the rooms had ceiling fans and you had a cooler for us to take to the beach/pool. It was nice that you had tennis rackets for your guest and yes we did play a few games each morning, and yes we where the entertainment for all the pool guest. We did take your advise and try the Blue Q, and Cosimo's Pizza. We enjoyed both of them and will visit them again. We loved having the covered parking and the beach right out side the doors. Thank you so much for sharing your condo and we hope to return again next year. I can't say enough about how much we enjoy your place. Thank you again.

Very Clean, nice condo
Very Clean, nice condo
Overall,we enjoyed our stay at House of the Sun. Donna was easy to deal with and very detailed and prompt during the reservation process. The condo itself is very clean. The building is very secure and quiet (although because this unit is on the end, there is live music across the street on some evenings and it can be heard in the master bedroom). Although you are not on the ocean, you can see a small glimpse from the balcony. The on-site staff was prompt and helpful when we needed assistance. We loved the roof top area - it was perfect for watching the sunset. The pool is small, but plenty big enough for our kids to swim in. The rec room could use some refreshing. The pool table, air hockey and fuse ball were fun, but very worn. Although, I would recommend their condo, we did have a few issues. The biggest two were the fact that the keys did not work well at all, to the point where we needed assistance getting in. After a phone call to Dave, the locks were repaired, but Dave was unapologetic and at times even rude to my husband about it. The other issue we had was the wi-fi is spotty at best. They are using the wi-fi in the building, but because there is not wi-fi in the condo itself, it's hard to connect. My husband was able to access it with his computer, but I was never able to connect any of my electronics. Lastly, although the linens are clean, some of them are quite worn (even with holes in them), and should be replaced. None of these issues would keep me from renting from them again, but the owners should address them if they want to guarantee a great stay.

Owner response: Hi Julie, Thank you for the nice compliments with regard to the cleanliness of the condo. Sometimes issues arise that I am unaware of and when I do hear of problems, I respond immediately. The problem with the dead bolt lock was addressed the same day you brought it to my attention and the office replaced the lock the very next day so that the dead bolt lock would work properly. The regular handle lock was working fine and did allow you to enter and leave the condo easily. With regard to the wifi, it is supplied by the association to all condos at House of the Sun. The wifi, when not being used, will time out on the computer after a 20 minute down time, and you have to re-log onto the system. There are wifi signal boosters in the hallway ten feet from the condo door which usually provides a strong signal. When your husband wanted to change the television primary settings for some type of action picture and wanted the original TV remote rather than the cable remote that is provided, we did not allow him to make changes to our TVs. There have been problems in the past with other guests making system changes that ended up with the TV not working for future guests. In order to avoid possible problems, we have a basic setting that has worked well with the TV and sound system which are both brand new. The surround system and 55 inch flat screen TV have been very well received. I am sorry that you took offense to how my husband communicated this to your husband. He did not mean to offend anyone. He just did not want to change the system for your preferences. With regard to the linens, I use all white linens so that they can be bleached by the cleaning staff. The sheets and towels are replaced as needed. There are extra replacement sheets and towels in the closet and if it was something that you did not like, you were able to switch it out for one in the closet. My cleaning people will destroy worn linens when they see them and they must have missed the linens that you noted. I have reminded my cleaning person to look for those sheets and destroy them when she is in for the next clean.

Wonderful on Siesta Key!
Hi Donna, Sad to say we are back home in Glasgow. We had a wonderful time in Siesta. Your apartment was fantastic and we have no complaints at all, in fact just perfect. I sent your two keys and parking permit through the mail just as we left the condo. I also put the third key back into your bedroom cabinet. Once again thank you very much, we really had a great time. Needless to say, when we make plans for our next trip to Siesta, we will be in touch..... Gavin.

Fishing can be a blast!
"We had a great time! I highly recommend others going to CB's, renting a boat, and fishing out in the bay with live shrimp to the sides of the channel markers. We caught a lot of fish including three sharks between all of us. In all we caught 9 different types of fish (ladyfish, bonnethead shark, sand shark, grunt, trout, mackerel, sail fin catfish, another type of catfish i can't think of, and a pin fish. It was a blast. Selby Gardens was also real nice and decorated for Christmas..."

You cannot go wrong here!
This condo exceeded my expectations! The customer service from Donna was above and beyond. Following a bad experience attempting to rent another unit in this development, the experience with Donna was a breath of fresh air. Everything was clean, well-maintained and the condo was conveniently located within walking distance of a number of good restaurants and other entertainment. The beach in the "back yard" is one of the best I have ever experienced. The sand is more like flour than sugar--not rocky or grainy in the least. Tip for margarita lovers: See Linda, bartender extraordinaire, at the lounge across the street next to the Tiki bar.

Why the Owner Chose House of the Sun:
House of the Sun is an extremely well run and maintained property. And we have all of the conveniences of shopping right across the street. We do not have to deal with the slow moving traffic on the key as we are just off of the south bridge (Stickney Point). Having a condo on the 2nd floor is a wonderful convenience, even with the 2 elevators, we can just walk up one flight of stairs to our condo. We love our place at House of the Sun!
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Dave and I have been coming to Siesta Key for over 15 years and we love it. We decided to purchase our condo at House of the Sun for so many reasons. First, we really like the location. The complex is on the gulf and one block away from the Stickney Point Bridge. During the busier times of the year, it is wonderful to be able to leave our building, cross the bridge and get to our destination without long, slow lines. We enjoy the large, heated pool the overlooks the gulf, and we love the decks on the fourth and fifth floors. Every evening, guests of House of the Sun love to come up to the 4th and 5th floor decks for sunset. A horn is typically blown from our 5th floor deck just as the sun is disappearing into the Gulf. The deck provides a panoramic view of Siesta Key Beach, and we are one of the very view complexes that have these wonderful decks right on the beach. We love the convenience of being able to walk across the street for groceries at the Crescent Market, cocktails at the Sniki Tiki and dinner at Claytons. Typically, my car stays under the building in my covered parking space for most of my time at House of the Sun. Everything that I need is right across the street, from rentals, to shops, to a variety of eateries, liquor stores, ice cream, pizza, pharmacy, rentals, and the list goes on and on...I simply cannot say enough about the location and amenities here at House of the Sun!
