    "This very comfortable condo with access to a beautiful pool is in a great location. Just a few minutes walk to a great beach and on the inter-coastal for access to boating and fishing. A short drive to many national stores and outlets. Local grocery, pharmacy. post office, restaurants etc within easy walking distance. Easy short drive to the centre of Sarasota, Marie Selby Gardens and Myakka State Park. We love staying here and plan to return."

  • Spring vacation

    "We had a very enjoyable stay in David's condo! It was very well stocked from kitchen plates, silverware and appliances to beach chairs and towels! The washer and dryer worked well. The view from the lanai was beautiful looking over the beach and the pool. We had great communication with David, the owner!"

  • EVERYTHING WAS FANTASTIC!!!

    "Sue's spacious condo on Siesta Key surpassed our expectations for our anniversary getaway. It was even better than the pictures, and accommodated our family of 6 perfectly. The decor was so tasteful, the condo was spotlessly clean, the beds and bedding were very comfy, and the kitchen was so well equipped for our large family to make some great meals. We absolutely loved the location on Siesta Key and liked the convenience to the mainland. Great shopping was just over the bridge. The beach was sparkling clear, pristine, and not as crowded as the public beach. We loved the beach chairs that were provided by the condo, and the kids loved the pool after going to the beach. We utilized the tiki hut for an unforgettable family BBQ at sunset. We were all very sad to leave this fantastic place. This rates as one of our favorite places to spend a family getaway. Sue is exceptionally helpful and makes sure her guests are taken care of. We would definitely like to return to Sue's condo at the Sea Shell on Siesta Key."

  • What you see and the description is accurate.

    "This place is wonderful and I would go back in a heart beat. The kitchen has everything you could need. The bathroom has a wonderful shower. The beds were comfortable and the room is huge. The condo has fans everywhere, the ac works well, and the kitchen is great for cooking. Even the dishes are pretty! We used the screened in porch a lot. If is very private because of the hedges in front of it. The beach is a short walk through the complex. There are beach chairs provided on the beach and, if you don't care for sitting on plastic, there are two beach chairs on the porch that you can carry down. There is also a beach umbrella and a small cooler. The beach is beautiful although while we were there, there was seaweed all over that section of beach and we had to walk to a clear part to get in the water. I heard there was a storm in Tampa which may have caused that to happen. Anyway, because of it, there was lots of sea life washed ashore and we got to see all sorts of things in the seaweed. I threw plenty of mollusk and clams back into the ocean. The shells were fun to collect. If I had to give a con about this complex I would say the pools. From what I could tell, they weren't cleaned daily. I noticed the bottoms were dirty which meant someone didn't vacuum on a regular basis. We didn't use them so it was no big deal for us. Also, it would be nice if one was considered an adult pool (no children under 18) and one a children's pool. Each time we thought we would use the pools, there were lots of yelling kids in them so we didn't bother. Not my idea of fun since I've been there, done that!! If you go into the village of Siesta Key (which I recommend), go to the restaurant called The Hub. It has the best margaritas and good food. Also, on Monday and Tuesday night the funniest singer/performer. We would have been there every night if he was performing. He is so much fun! Stay away from the place called Gilligan's Island. Food and drinks not worth it. Added bonus to this place...they have a resident Egret. He will come right up to you if he thinks you are going to feed him. One person gave him a can of tuna (yes they eat fish and bugs) and he was sitting right at the guys feet. At night, after watching the sunset, we came back to see another bird digging for food in the grass. It was beautiful too and different from the egret. Also there are little lizards running around and they are adorable."
