Gulf Holiday condo description

Unit 7 is on the ground floor of Gulf Holiday Apartments directly across from our wonderful heated swimming pool. This is a peaceful location for couples or small families looking for a place to get away and recharge.

The building has only 18 units and is literally steps away from the Gulf of Mexico, Siesta Key Beach and Siesta Key Village.

Relax by the pool. Enjoy the beach. Experience wonderful sunsets and incredible fishing just feet away at the end of the street.

The apartment is a comfortable 1 bedroom unit with a double bed, living room (with queen size pull out), full kitchen, air conditioning, cable tv, and hi-speed internet.

The unit was recently renovated and is very comfortable to relax in.

Siesta Key is a short drive to Sarasota for shopping and attractions though it is easy to spend an entire vacation without leaving the village.

Restaurants, bars, shops, groceries, hair and beauty salons are all in the village. As well as bicycle, scooter, boat, jet ski, kayak and fishing equipment rentals.

              The village has all you need - restaurants (the Lobster Pot, the Cottage and Blue Smoke to name a few) bars, Big Olaf's Ice Cream Shop, the Beach Bazaar and several other shops and boutiques.

              Siesta Key is a short drive from downtown Sarasota which offers wonderful sites to explore like the Ringling Mansion and Circus Museum, the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens, deep sea fishing, golf, movie cinemas and live theatre.

              Year Purchased: 2012

              About: My wife Victoria and I bought our place in 2012 to enjoy with our children. We are from Toronto and love to get away to beautiful Siesta Key which is simply paradise to us. I have been coming to Gulf Holiday Apartments for over 30 years (My familiy also owns Unit 6 right next store). It is the perfect place for a relaxing vacation.

              Why Gulf Holiday:
              This place is special. Siesta Key, Gulf Holiday and Unit #7 provide the ideal location to enjoy yourself in a beautiful and relaxing setting. There are plenty of restaurants and bars to enjoy, but this is not Lauderdale. It is a quiet, peaceful community where people treat each other with respect, feel safe walking around day or night and ultimately, come back time and time again. Our unit is a comfortable size for couples or families with 1-2 smaller children. It is clean and comfortable. The kitchen a good size. The pool is fantastic and the beach is second to none. Our unit is well suited for short or long-term stays. Some of our regular guests come for up to two months at a time. Ask us about the availabilty of Unit #6 as well if you are travelling with friends!
