Siesta Key, a small barrier island, has an attractive 'tropical' lifestyle with a good choice of local dining and early evening live music in the bars. In addition to local outdoor leisure activities there is easy access to nearby places of natural beauty and historical interest. Sarasota is known as the cultural capital of Florida with a wealth of visual and performing arts and community events.
Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: We have been visiting Siesta Key for 15 years and have rented a number of properties before purchasing this one earlier this year. We have grown to love the island lifestyle and walks on the fabulous and undeveloped Siesta Key beach. We also enjoy the mix of activity downtown and around the Sarasota Bay area. We return to Siesta Key twice a year to visit our family.
Why the Owner Chose Whispering Sands: We found this property on our last visit and immediately felt at home in the community. Whispering Sands is a residential complex rather than a short stay vacation resort. The ambiance is friendly and tranquil.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: This long established and well maintained residential complex, in a quiet yet central Siesta location, is in over 20 acres of attractive grounds set back from the road. Whispering Sands offers a range of amenities, including two heated pools, and activities. It is hard to describe just how secluded our condo is, and how serene it feels to be in the lanai overlooking the lagoon...and yet within 5 minutes walk we can be part of the buzz in the village!
