  • Beautiful Siesta Key!

    "We hated to leave the beach! Just spent 6 glorious days over Thanksgiving! What a great Holiday Getaway! Condo is tastefully furnished and most comfortable! Not much direct sun but with a beautiful beach and heated pool area you will not be disappointed. Perfect beach for sunning, running or a casual stroll! Upon check-in we had a few hiccups but housekeeping and the grounds crew at SSRC were most accommodating. Fitness room had all the necessary equipment. Plenty of grill areas for outdoor cooking. Sarasota Beach and Racquet Club is our new Go-To Beach destination and we are planning our next return!"

  • FIRST CLASS ALL THE WAY!

    "Let me say upfront that Bert, the owner of this condo, is very attentive and provides a prompt response to any questions that you may have. He is easy to work with -- which is a plus for this condo rental. As soon as you walk through the frond door, you realize that you have made the right choice. The condo is furnished with first class furnishings and almost all amenities are provided. My wife especially liked that Master Bedroom -- as there is a large area adjacent for dressing and bathing. As a side note (and an important one), the mattresses are very comfortable, as well. The complex itself is located directly on the Gulf with a Regular Pool and a Lap Pool. The Regular pool has a hot tub (Spa) and a gas grill for cooking. We actually used the gas grill to fix shrimp one night while there. As you walk from the pool area, you are directly on the Gulf -- which, if you are familiar with this area, provides calm water and soft sand (that is why it's rated as the #1 Beach!). Lastly, the location is near Stickney Point -- which is one of the main access road to Siesta Key. Because of this location, you will have easy access to any restaurant or store that you may wish to visit. By now, you realize that this place is first class and I know you would enjoy renting. When we return to Siesta Key, we will definitely rent again! A special THANKS to Bert for all he did while we were there!"

  • Single woman in her 60's

    "I just returned from a 3 week stay at Canal Place. The weather was wonderful, the cottage very comfortable and appointed with everything you could ever imagine. The beautiful Siesta Key Beach is a 7 minute walk although I did drive over sometimes in the 5-7Pm hour just because I was lazy and wanted to maximize the quiet time on the beach to read. There is a kayak out the front door and 3 bikes in the back. It's a 7 minute walk in a different direction to the hardware store, grocery/wine store, shops and all of the restaurants. It is a very safe and populated neighborhood but you might want a flashlight if you are walking home after dark. Ali and Rich could not be nicer and more helpful. Book early, these cottage go fast.
