  • 5 star condo all the way

    "My family of four just returned from a great week at Siesta Key. The condo is spacious and full of amenities. It is luxurious, and the pictures really do not do it justice. The beach is right outside the door as are beach chairs, toys, anything you could want. We spent a lot of time on the patio enjoying the view and some outside dining. My son, also, loved the lap pool which was right outside his sliding door. Everything you could possibly want is right at your fingertips. We also loved the location of the condo--It is right across the street from Captain Curt's (great fried shrimp) and in back of that is Clayton's restaurant which has great food, also ( little more upscale than Captain Curt's). Two other restaurants we really enjoyed were Ophelia's on the Bay (5 minutes right down Midnight Pass Road),( more upscale--great food!) and Gammino's Café in Siesta Key--great atmosphere and wonderful Italian food. One last note, Bert is the most accommodating condo owner we have ever worked with. It was a pleasure to work with him. Our family has stayed in many condos on the Atlantic and the Gulf Coast. Hands down, this is one of the best!"

  • Terrific experience!

    "We loved our experience at the Shells! My husband and I stayed for two weeks, and it was our first experience renting a home. The Shells was a great choice. The location was perfect - it is super close to the beautiful beach. Siesta Key has amazing white sand beach. The sand is so fine it looks like white flour, and there are pretty shells to be found. The villa is also very walkable to Siesta Key Village shops and restaurants. The villa was very well appointed. Everything we thought we would want (and a couple things we didn't think of) were provided. I cooked quite a bit, and had no problem with utensils or cookware. Cable, DVD, WiFi, all worked great. There's a small elevator to all the floors, which we didn't really use except as a dumb waiter to carry heavy luggage upstairs. It's pet friendly, which allowed us to bring our little dog along. Finally, the owner/property manager was really friendly and supportive. All questions were answered promptly, and communication was very clear. Our only concern was that the incline on the driveway was such that we sometimes had a hard time keeping the car from scraping on the bottom. Nothing insurmountable though. We would absolutely recommend the Shells and will definitely be back!"
