  • Perfect!

    "Just returned from one of the most relaxing vacations ever! My husband and I along with my husband's cousin and wife spent a serene vacation at this condo that was adorable and had everything necessary along with a well equipped kitchen we spent preparing meals in. They had chairs, beach towels, and a washer/dryer we used. We enjoyed every night on the lanai listening to the waves. No joke the water is right there....breathtaking. Hardly anyone was on the beach and we felt it was our own. The owners made sure everything you need is there and a large file with pamphlets from restaurants and things to do. The electronic door was such a plus...no worrying about keys. These owners really care about the time you have there with their attention to detail! The only drawback was I wish I could have stayed longer!! Renting again."

  • Great House, Perfect vacation

    "My family vacationed here with 3 generations represented. This house accommodated all of us with ranch style ease for the seniors and pool, fishing and beach for the young ones. Large TV in Family room for group viewing has apparently been added since last review. Card table in Family room great fun for rainy nights. Spacious rooms, minutes from the beach and a short walk to the village and shops. Hoping to be a frequent vacationer to this home."

  • Our stay at Gary's condo in Siesta Key.

    "We have rented Gary's condo for three years now and next year will be our fourth. New carpeting in the living area and bedrooms gives the condo a warmth that seems more like a home than a condo. The new window treatments are attractive and easy to slide across the sliding doors. The condo is clean and the beds are comfortable. I particularly enjoy Gary's condo as it is right next to the laundry room, almost like having it in the condo itself. However, the washers and dryers are quiet enough so that they are not disturbing. Being right on the beach is a real plus. At night it is nice to leave any one of the three sliding doors open to hear the sound of the waves lulling one to sleep. The morning sun shines on the Lanai so we often sit at the table on the Lanai to enjoy our breakfast and a cup of coffee. The Lanai is quite private even though it is directly across from the south building being on the 7th floor so we eat nearly all of our meals there instead of inside. The location of the condo is perfect. A couple of restaurants are within walking distance, as are gift and clothing shops, a fresh meat market, the Post Office, ice cream, grocery, and places to rent boats and bikes. Just down the beach to the south is the Point of Rocks where there is an abundance of shells and about a mile walk to the north is the Public Beach where, if you are fortunate, you may find a sand dollar or two. The Village of Siesta Key is a short drive to the north. Located just to the north of the bridge on Stickney Point Road on Midnight Pass gives us easy access to Gary's condo at Crescent Arms. Gary has been exceptionally accommodating, keeps good communication with us and provides us with any information that we need to have an enjoyable vacation."

You can also find more than 100 shops, boutiques, galleries and sidewalk cafes at St. Armand’s Circle along Main Street and Palm Avenue in Sarasota.
