  • Priceless! Great view, great beach, great condo!

    "We've come to the area for 20 years to visit my parents, and this was the first year we needed to find a place to stay. We feel like we hit the jackpot at a luxury hotel! The condo was gorgeous and the owners had everything you could think of from Wi-Fi, PC, printer, games, beach toys, puzzles, tools and even Christmas lights which we promptly put up as we spent the holiday there. The fireworks on New Years went on for hours up and down the beach and many exploded right at eye level from the lanai directly in front of the condo. It was a New Years the kids will never forget. I loved getting up early each morning to take long walks on the beach and came home with a treasure full of sea shells much more wonderful and varied than in all the years of my visiting Siesta Key and Venice Beaches. The kids got to see tons of live conchs, live starfish, live sand dollars, live sea urchins, and even a small ray. The water was a bit chilly, but we still swam and went hunting for sharks teeth at Manasota Beach which yielded us more teeth than Sharky's Beach, but Manasota lacks the facilities and ambience of Sharky's. Although Siesta Key is our favorite beach with the finest talcum powder-like sand, it was the condo that made this vacation so wonderful. We were able to bring my mom, who has trouble walking, from her nearby retirement home to spend some real quality time with the family. We spent hours on the HUGE lanai playing cards, looking at sea shells, watching the sun set, and enjoying seafood and wine with an amazing view. She came down to the pool area and could sit on the patio at the edge of the beach and watch and talk as we played soccer and Frisbee on the beach. It was truly priceless. The owners are wonderful, helpful, very accommodating and treat you like family. They have two journals in the condo that the guests write in. Be sure to read them as there are LOADS of suggestions and reviews of local places. Our favorites include Yoder's (incredible amish restaurant with long lines - even at 4:00, but the large portions of food and homemade pies are worth the wait), Captain Curt's, Miguel's, and Sharky's."

  • One great condo

    "This was an ideal condo for two couples! We stayed two weeks in this luxury condo. The kitchen was fully equiped, and well maintained. The beds were very comfortable in both bedrooms. One of the things we enjoyed most, were the glass sliding panels just in front of the screens, on the balcony. The beauty of them was when the weather was mild, we opened all the sliding glass panels and let the all the air in. When it was too windy, we closed just the panels that needed closing to control the wind! When it was too hot, we closed all the sliding glass doors, and stayed cool while enjoying the balcony! Perfect! We appreciated to owners attention to detail. Thanks Steve, we had a great time!"

  • Two Weeks in Paradise!

    "We couldn't be happier with Debbie & Don's beautiful condo. They have done a marvelous job of decorating and furnishing it with every conceivable comfort and with the highest quality features: Top of the line cabinetry and appliances, charming dishes and serving pieces, lovely original art and beautiful and comfortable furniture. We greatly appreciated the love and care that they put into this condo -- it felt like the kind of home we are used to and we certainly made certain that we treated it with the respect it deserves. We loved the incredible view of beautiful Siesta Key Beach and the magnificent sunsets from the lanai that adjoins both bedrooms and the living and dining room. We enjoyed our walks along the beach and into the village for meals or ice-cream or gelato. Don't miss the glass elevator at the end of the corridor -- it's much more "scenic" than the one closest to the unit!! The location near the southern bridge to the mainland made trips into Sarasota, or to some of our favorite discoveries (the Ringling Museum, Spanish Point, Myakka State Park, Celery Fields for bird watching) and even to Costco & Trader Joe's quite easy. By the time we returned "Home" from our excursions we were more than ready to stretch out and enjoy our favorite shows on the terrific jumbo flatscreen tv in the living room or catch up with the news on the bedroom flatscreen tv -- or to curl up with a book or to just do nothing at all but to enjoy the view! It was truly like two weeks in Paradise and and very hard to leave!"
