House of the Sun condo description

House of the Sun is located directly on Crescent Beach, consistently ranked as #1 beach in the world! It is known for it's flour white soft sand, exclusive to Siesta Key. There is almost 3 miles of continuous beach to walk, run and explore.

This is a great place for FAMILIES and retired travelers as it is on the quiet end of the beach and does not attract the 'spring break crazies'. Conveniently located--walking distance--to restaurants, drug store, ice cream, gift shops, grocery store, 7Eleven, sports rentals, fishing charters, boat rentals, parasailing and much more!

This unit has brand new leather furniture with a double reclining love seat and a pull out queen sleeper sofa in addition to another separate recliner. The living room also boasts a plasma TV with cable and a DVD/VHS player. A variety of movies are provided. Relax in the comfort of your living area while enjoying the view out the double sliding doors. Balcony provides view of beach and gulf and is a great place to enjoy a meal or a beverage. There is a drying rack for your swim suits and towels.

The master bedroom features a king size bed, 2 extra large closets, a sitting area, cable TV, dresser, chest of drawers, a large vanity area and a newly remodeled comfort accessible bath and shower.

The 2nd bedroom has two twin beds, a large closet, a dresser, chest of drawers and cable TV. The second bath has a tub and shower.

Kitchen is fully furnished with coffee maker, dishwasher, toaster, microwave and ice maker. There is also a washer and dryer for renter's use in the unit. Board games, books, cards, pool and beach toys are provided in this unit.

Overall this unit is very spacious--you will not feel like you are crammed into a small hotel unit or townhouse condo.

The condo complex has free Wi-Fi throughout. The complex also has an incredible two-tier sun deck on the 4th and 5th floors with astounding views of the sunset. Lounge chairs, tables and chairs are provided throughout including the sun deck, pool area, patio/grill area, and beach.

                  About: We live in Wisconsin and love to run, bike, swim, read and travel. We hope to end up here when we retire. I am married with 2 teenage children. I dragged my husband here with me when we first starting dating. Now he loves it too!

                  Why House of the Sun:
                  I have come to Siesta Key with my family since I was born. LOVE LOVE LOVE it here. I have traveled all over the country and internationally. Siesta Key is an awesome place for relaxing vacations and outdoor activities. Great place for families and little kids--safe and quiet. Not a crazy crowded spring break place.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  House of the Sun cannot be beat for location and amenities. The beach is unmatched in beauty. I love being able to walk to restaurants and stores. (My favorite restaurant in the whole world is across the street--'Captain Curt's') I also love going for a walk or run on the beach in the early morning and seeing the porpoise and wide variety of birds and picking up shells. Then coming back and planting myself on the beach or on the sun deck for an afternoon of total relaxation.
