"5 min walk to Crescent beach - there isn't very much parking for this beach so it is not crowded and is really beautiful. There is an area nearby that is supposed to be great for snorkeling but the weather was not right for it during our visit. Always worth a try though! House provided beach umbrellas, chairs, carts, toys, etc. so that we didn't spend a cent on those types of things and were still comfortable and entertained. Pool was beautiful and much larger than expected from the pictures. Had grill for us to cook fish from the in-town market on. Stumbling distance to karaoke bar was also a plus, as was proximity to equipment rentals, places to eat and local ice cream shop. You really don't need a car once you are here if you are just looking to relax. We had 2 kids - one a toddler and the place was great for them (though do note from the picture it doesn't have a tub, so small children need to be ok with showers). The fold out couch is a king size and so comfortable you wouldn't know it was a fold out. Laundry on premises meant we were also able to wash all the clothes we wore to the theme parks the week before. Code access makes coming and going easy. The only thing I'd say is maybe bring your own set of towels as well if you want one for the beach and one for the pool or want to cycle wet/dirty with clean as there is only one set (though they are nice and big!) Property is shared with another unit but honestly we only even saw them once and they were very friendly. Enough to do that you likely won't lack privacy. Would most definitely return to this property - lots of fun and a great value as well."

"We had a great time staying at this condo. The owner is very kind and accommodating. The location is great and a beautiful beach! When we were there the dishwasher didn't work and there was not a washer/dryer in the unit, but that was not a big deal to us. We hope to return."

"We have stayed in this property multiple times for a reason. It is perfect in every way. The location cannot be beat, and the owner's spare no expense when it comes to the accommodations. The only complaint we have ever had is not enough vacation time. Siesta Key is beautiful, The Blue Serenity is perfect, customer service is top notch, cannot ask for much more.
We cannot wait until next year, see you next October!!!"

"My family really enjoyed our stay at House of the Sun. This was our first visit and we'd return in a heartbeat. The beach was fantastic, ideal for long walks, swimming and sunning and family games. Very family-friendly, and felt perfectly safe even in the late evening with just a few people around. The area is very quiet after dark, which may be important to families craving a low-key spot. There's a couple of popular bars/restaurants with patios across the street from the complex that play music but we couldn't hear it inside the condominium. There's a grocery store conveniently located across the street, as well as a pharmacy, and some other shops.
The condo was clean and comfortable. The king bed in the master was comfortable for us, while our tall teen son was a little less comfortable in a twin bed in the second bedroom. Having a washer/dryer in the unit let us travel light for the week. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals, and was well-stocked with dish soap and even coffee filters.
The office staff are very responsive, and solved a couple of minor concerns we had within minutes. We arrived after the office had closed on Saturday, and getting our keys from the lockbox was no problem. Though it wasn't hot while we were there, I'm sure the covered parking is appreciated by guests visiting in the warmer months. The pool was spotlessly clean and comfortably warm for swimming."
