"My family and I have been staying in this condo for two weeks every summer for the past 6 years. It is absolutely beautiful in every way. Debbie and Don have thought of everything to ensure that your stay will be perfect. The best part of this condo is the amazing view of the Gulf and the crystal white sand beaches. The view from this 12th floor penthouse is spectacular. My family thinks of this condo as their second home and we can't thank Debbie and Don enough for sharing their piece of Paradise with us each year. When we leave every year, my kids remind me that we will be back in 50 weeks!"

"My wife and I had another great time in this condo - second year in a row. We loved the weather, the views, the beach and the accommodations. It all made for a perfect way to re-charge the batteries, so to speak. The updated security and the switch to salt water in the beautiful pool were nice additions this year, as well. Looking forward to going back next year for sure."

"The beach is beautiful & Siesta Key is a walker's paradise. The Village is 2 miles north with Stickney Point Rd a half mile south. Plenty of good restaurants & shops nearby. Loved renting bikes & also kayaks near Turtle Beach.
Photos on VRBO accurately depict the unit. Owner was responsive ahead of our visit, we did not require any interaction during our stay. The unit was clean upon our arrival. Unit has normal wear & tear to be expected from a rental unit and I would describe the overall condition as good. Things we liked best about the place included: 1) Spacious unit offering plenty of room for a family to spread out with 2 BRs/2 baths upstairs plus 1 BR & a half bath downstairs; 2) Pool was located steps out the back door that was great for reading/relaxing & offered a mix of sun or shade most of the day; 3) Complex has ample lounge chairs to help relax at the beach and the beach-side pool/restrooms are a nice convenience; 4) Complex has an updated fitness center that we enjoyed using several times.
Minor drawbacks about the unit included: 1) Road noise -- the unit is right on Midnight Pass Rd and you will hear noise from the street in the downstairs BR and upstairs guest BR. Road noise is not an issue in the living room or master BR; 2) Due to surrounding trees/foliage, the unit is dark and doesn't get much sunlight in the living room or lanai.
The beach is about a 7-8 minute walk across Midnight Pass Rd. We did not mind this distance and spent much time enjoying the beautiful sand & walking along the gulf. With smaller children, getting back & forth to the beach may be more of a consideration.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay at this unit. Every rental has its pluses & minuses and I hope our balanced comments will be helpful to future travelers as they evaluate rental options."

"Sandbox on the Beach has the best location right on the beach. Everything is within a few steps of your unit: the beach, the sand, the gulf, the village and especially the sunsets.
We have been coming back to this same unit for five years. Each year, we are thrilled to be here. The unit is spacious, clean and with all the comforts imaginable.
The best part, however, is the staff. All of the people connected with the Sandbox (Roger, Arlene, Frank, Kathy, Amy and Jerry) treat you like family. They consistently do everything possible to make your stay the very best."
