  • Perfect Siesta Key Location!

    Betty J.

    "We had a great week in Siesta Key and enjoyed the gorgeous view and great condo! It is the perfect location to enjoy the beach and a beautiful view of the ocean. The condo was exactly as described, clean, and comfortable. The beach is right across the street and easily accessible. We loved the condo, the area, and the friendly laid-back atmosphere. The owner was excellent to work with and very responsive. You have a beautiful condo and we loved Siesta Key and the beach!! Wish we could have stayed longer!"

    "This is a great unit and well situated. The access to the pool and beach was very convenient especially with 1 and 3 year old grandchildren in tow. The condo is spacious with adequate seating for all of us. The wifi worked well and the condo had extended cable programming and HD. The only thing I wish was different is the location of the covered parking for the unit. While there are spaces right outside of the lanai they are not for this unit. The assigned parking is not far but I had the impression when booking the unit that the space was right outside the condo. All in all a great place to stay. Comfortable, well stocked, and clean. It is also very convenient to local stores and restaurants (walking distance)."

  • Awesome Condo

    Ryan B.

    "My family of 6 (4 kids) stayed here for 1 week and it was our best Spring Break. Condo had all of the conveniences of home and comfortably fit the whole family. The ocean view off the screened in porch was worth the trip alone. It was quiet and relaxed but still within walking distance of 2 restaurants and bars. Within easy driving distance of many grocery stores, etc. Loved it."

    "Our stay was fantastic. When we were in the unit, we were usually on the lanai -- fabulous view of the gulf, breathtaking sunset views. Condo was comfortable and so convenient to the beach. We would return."
