Feel free to find my Facebook page Siesta Dunes 8-102 for many more pictures and personal eating adventures.

Enjoy the privacy of my beautiful, well-maintained condo in a peaceful garden setting. Our unit is on the first floor of a 2-story building, second from the end. Easy access to the pool and beach. Enjoy all of the amenities that the Siesta Dunes Complex has to offer, which includes tennis, sauna, hot tub, large circular salt-water pool, expansive sun deck with lounge chairs, tables, and several BBQ area. The sun deck has sea-turtle-friendly night lighting for evening relaxation at the tables on the large deck, under pavilion, or on the plentiful lounge chairs. Gather privately or with the other guests to watch the most beautiful sunset you will ever see. Siesta Dunes is directly on the Gulf of Mexico and the atmosphere is beautiful, day or night.

There are no roads to cross to get from our condo to the gorgeous blue-green waters, and clean white sand on our award-winning beach. Siesta Dunes is beachfront. Just a few minutes walk and you will see why our beach is world famous!

Our kitchen is complete and we have tried very hard to anticipate your every need. We are very happy with our newly completed kitchen renovations (May 2016) which include a beautiful recycled glass counter top that extends as a breakfast bar, and subway tile walls. We have a washer and dryer inside our unit for your added convenience as well a radio CD player in the kitchen. We have 3 TVs, 1 VCR, and 1 DVD VCR. There are docking stations on each night stand in the master bedroom. The master shower was completely gutted (May 2016) and is now beautifully tiled with a partial glass shower 'door'. Beach Chairs and Lounges provided by Siesta Dunes for complimentary beach use. You can also rent cabana type lounge chairs and kayaks from a private service at the beach entrance.

One week minimum, Saturday check in and Saturday check out most months. I prefer parties of 4 or less. When children are involved, I may make an exception. I make an exception to the Saturday to Saturday rule during the fall months.

As a new Grammy, I am suddenly very conscious of parents' needs again. We have a pack and play, high chair, booster seat, as well as other baby/toddler items available for your use. You have access to toys, rafts, etc. in our shed and we have a big sturdy yellow wagon for carting everything back and forth to the pool and ocean. "Mingo" is a favorite of my granddaughter. Please note, Mingo needs to stay in the house except when Grammy is taking pictures for the condo. UPDATE: Mingo has a new seagull friend, name pending. (-;

Parents: Please note that the living room is tiled and there is one step that goes from the living room to the enclosed lanai area.

Come and see for yourself how fully equipped our condo is. It is my hope that everything is done tastefully and always with the needs of the guest in mind. I expect to The kitchen has been recently renovated with a recycled glass counter top and stainless work table. The tiled master shower/bath is also new.

Best condo on Siesta Key beach

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been vacationing at Siesta Dunes for 5 years and it never gets old. Our condo is very nice. The bed in the master BR is the best! We like our garden unit as it's quiet and great for playing with the grandkids. Karen, the owner, is especially accommodating. We tried to use the hand mixer and it just about took my hand off; the switch was broken and it started spinning at high speed the minute it was plugged in. I reported it and received a brand new Kitchen Aid within a day. The staff is friendly and very helpful. Tobie is the best!! The grounds are beautiful, the pool absolutely heated and lovely, the hot tub relaxing, and the beach view breathtaking. We've made a lot of friends with each stay and see a lot of the same ones each year. You can't go wrong staying at this condo. We'll be back again next year!!

Excellent stay - great for kids!

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent week at Linda's condo! Siesta Dunes is in a great location and the condo is only a 5-7 minute walk to the beach. Even though it's by the main road, it's still very quiet. The condo has everything you would ever need with kids - we used the high chair, pack n play, bed rails, and tons of the toys in the shed. The sand toys and wagon were great! The kitchen is also fully equipped and don't really need anything but food. We'd highly recommend staying at this condo and will recommend it to others!

Awesome-- As ususal!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented 8-102 from Karen for several years now and have watched our son grow up for a pre-schooler to a pre-teen at SKB. Karen's unit is tasteful, practical and clean. Never disappoints to rent from her. She has everything you need to make your stay comfortable. We love sitting in the garden early in the morning with our coffee. The condo has a ton of natural light. The kitchen is well-appointed with everything you need to cook a great meal. The Siesta Dunes property is the nicest on island in our opinion. It is not a high rise and is surrounded by lush tropical landscaping - the staff always does an amazing job making sure the property is spotless. Just a short walk to the beach, it is a pleasant stroll taking only 3 minutes. The walk on the deck is wonderful - clean as a whistle and well lit at night! We love sitting on the huge deck in the evening sipping wine and watching the sunset. It is your private show! There are multiple grilling sites, again spotless and clean! The pool is wonderful also! Clean and wonderful. And the beach is magnificent - one of the lesser crowded spots compared to other resorts on the island. There is a club house to go in for a read in the air conditioning, or as we do - stop in after our night walk on the beach and play a game of chess. The staff is friendly, always saying hello as they make sure the grounds are very secure and safe for the guests. We love Karen's unit and we adore SKB!

Siesta Dunes - Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was fabulous, clean & very comfortable. There was nothing missing, and everything you could possibly want was provided. The area is wonderful and it is the perfect vacation spot! The complex is convenient to everything you need and very quiet. During our stay we especially enjoyed the location and we had absolutely no problems what so ever. We would strongly recommend this condo to anyone desiring a beach front location that has all of the amenities that you need for an excellent get away. Beautiful sunrises & sunsets! Can't wait to go back.

Clean, comfortable, quiet condo (if you don't mind a short walk to beach)

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 was pleased with this condo. Decor was pleasant, beds reasonably comfortable, and amenities provided met our needs. Property location was on a nice beach which was not crowded and had soft sand. The unit itself was one of the farthest from the beach, but still just about a 5-7 minute walk. Grounds were nicely landscaped. Unit was one of the more reasonably priced for its location and amenities. Unit was as described in listing, and photos were accurate.

If you come to the area, would highly recommend the Ringling Museum.

Owner's Response: Cynthia, I'm so glad your family enjoyed your stay and hope to have you back again! The short walk across the grounds and to the beach gets even shorter each time you visit. (-;

Great home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This is the first time we have stayed at Siesta Dunes and this unit, it is a perfect spot. Has all the extras most rentals don't (eg: extra dish and laundry soap, spices; paper towels, etc). Plenty of extra towels for the condo and beach towels as well. Check out the locker it had a lot of goodies for the kids including a new Beach umbrella, (the one there got busted in a storm and we replaced it). The grounds as inviting to walk around at Siesta Dunes, and there is a Webber BBQ at the end of building 8 with a private table for eating. 5 min walk to the beach from condo.

Would recommend the unit and location to anyone with children. Best place for kids... beach, pool and plenty of sunshine.
