We LOVE vacationing to Siesta Key and LOVE staying at this unit at the Seashell. We've stayed at Peppertree Bay, Aloha Kai and some others on the north side of the beach and can honestly say Seashell is the BEST and we won't stay anywhere else now! It's on the south side of Crescent Beach which is always very quiet and not as crowded compared to the bigger buildings and public beach. It's just steps away from Captain Curts (which has THE BEST clam chowder in the U.S.!) a grocery store, ice cream, bike rentals, nice souvineer shop, and a couple cute little bars along with quick and easy access to the main land with minimal traffic. I've been staying at this particular unit every year since 2007 before I had kids. Now we have 3 kids and it is still just as perfect and accommodates us all perfectly! This unit is on the 2nd floor which is nice for the young kids. It also has an elevator for the stroller which there is never any wait for it. The grounds are always beautifully kept and all of the maintenece and front desk people that we have seen/met are very warm and friendly. This unit is always clean and you can tell the owners take great pride because it is beautifully decorated, updated and fresh looking. It is right on the beach with a keyed gate that only people staying at Seashell have access to, so very private feeling. All in all, it's literally the best and we will continue to come back every year!
Our Favorite Condo - We Stay Here Every Year!
We have been vacationing to Siesta Key for the past 20 years and have stayed in this particular condo every year for the past 8 years because we love it so much! We really love the location being right on the beach and the interior of the condo is beautiful, nicely updated and always clean. We've recommended to many of our family and friends who also stay there every year. I noticed a 2-star review on this listing and am wondering if they accidentally posted on the wrong condo listing because this unit is much better than what they were describing. I just wanted people to know this condo is absolutely lovely and we highly recommended it!
Sea Shells condo
Siesta Key, which we have visited before, is a lovely place and the Sea Shells condos are right on the fantastic beach. We found this condo in need of a brightening update, old furniture and crockery etc. Patio doors and windows that do not close properly and let in the cold winds of January are not acceptable. Needs some money spending on it to bring it up to scratch. We would visit Siesta key again but not this condo.
Thank you for your review and suggestions. We welcome feedback from our guests and want to do everything we can to insure a wonderful visit at our Siesta Key condo.
Let me address your concerns:
We replaced the cookware [crockery] the week following your departure. We do this on a regular basis and unfortunately, the timing did not work out for your stay. As for the furnishings and decorating needing a "brightening update". We have decorated in a warm traditional look incorporating earth tones, light sand walls and burgundy leather furniture. This is not the typical "Florida" look with yellow, greens, and blue. This interior may not appeal to everyone. We have many interior photos on our VRBO website plus a video walk through. We elected to take numerous interior pictures as opposed to a bunch of outside " general scenery" shots. Personally, I prefer seeing the interior of the unit we are contemplating renting. We encourage everyone to examine this area of the website and watch the video located in the top left of the VRBO page on the 'Video' tab.
Additionally, there were some issues with a sticking sliding door or window. This does occur as a result of the salty sea air and requires periodic maintenance. We have a full time maintenance staff available to correct any issues in the building. Please be sure to let the office know promptly upon check-in if you see any items in need of attention. Everyone at the Sea Shell wants our guests to enjoy a relaxing stay and will do everything possible assist you.
Thank you for your review.
I am so glad to have found this rental. Our family of five just spent the week in Siesta Key. We are definitely coming back, especially to the same rental unit. The unit is very updated and clean. A family of five fit comfortably. There is so much within walking distance. The ocean is right outside the condo. Saw dolphins swimming in the morning. The staff at Seashell were very friendly. The beach chairs were great to have as well. Thank You Dan for sharing your unit with others! We will be booking for next year.
Actually, I want to move there!!!!!! Best beach ever!!!!!
Siesta Key is #1
Condo was nice and the two bedrooms were large. The condo was very close to the beach and the complex was in a good location across from Captain Curt's. The beach was the nicest we have ever been on, the fine white sand never got hot. Having chairs available for the beach each day was a plus!
Thank You Sea Shell
We stayed in this unit for 1 month and loved every single day. The condo was furnished nicely and the kitchen was well stocked with all your cooking untensils (Not that you want to cook while you are on vacation). The beach...well as every one knows it is rated one of the top 10 beaches so how can u beat it and I have to say the staff was so friendly and accomodating. We are definally planning on returning to the Sea Shell next year.
Thank you for your review! We strive to provide a wonderful vacation experience and are always listening to what our guests have to say about the location and accommodations. We are fortunate to have such great Sea Shell staff. They really do an excellent job and it is good to have our guests take the time to recognize their efforts.
We look forward to your next visit!
