  • 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."

  • Great family vacation home

    "This is a wonderful home in a wonderful neighborhood. On a quiet road. The house has everything from a fully equipped kitchen, bedrooms, bathrooms and a gas grill. A two person kayak, that we took out on the canal a few times. A short distance from beach access points and a short drive to Siesta Key Beach and Siesta Village. We had a great experience with the owners. They stay in touch before during and after our stay. The house/pool/hot tub/lanai were great better than expected. We had 2 young family ours with 8 year old and 5 year old boys and my wife's sister/husband and their 12 year old boy and 9 year old girl. The bedrooms were amazing the kids loved the bunk beds. The master bath was my favorite I loved the shower. There is something for everyone. We went to several different beaches Siesta Key, Turtle Beach, Crescent Beach, Caspersen Beach(found some shark teeth there) also on your way to or from Caspersen Beach stop in at Sharky's for great food. We went on a fishing charter caught snapper, mackerel, bluefish and some others that were filleted up and BBQ'd on the grill the next day. Also the shopping, there is everything from flea markets to big shopping malls all within a half hour drive. We would highly recommend this property and we will return. P.S. the pictures on this website do not do the property justice."

  • What a vacation!!!

    "We recently got back from our dream vacation in Siesta Key!! The listing and photos for Debbie & Don's condo was 100% accurate, and the property was clean and well-maintained. The location was awesome!! The moment we walked in the door, we felt at home! Sitting on the lanai was one of our favorite things to do - we were as high as the birds, and the huge pelicans flew right by!! The beach was also the highlight and was just steps away. The sand felt like flour, and it didn't even get hot. We spent a day at The Mote Aquarium and would highly recommend it and the boat ride/kayaking tour they offer. Two of our favorite restaurants were The Salty Dog and Walt's Fish Market & Restaurant. We also visited Sub Zero ice cream shop at least three times!! Many wonderful family memories were made. We have already recommended this condo to many of our friends and family, and we can't wait to go back ourselves. We would never stay anywhere else!!"
