About Mary Wilson

I was previously from Grand Haven, Michigan and purchased my condominium on Siesta Key after vacationing there for a few years to get away from the cold winter days. I quickly fell in love with the beautiful white sands of Crescent Beach as well as the friendly people. After owning my condominium for a just few years I decided to relocate permanently to Sarasota, Florida where I now live just a few miles from my condominium on Siesta Key.

Mary Wilson purchased this condo in 2001

Why Mary Wilson chose Siesta Key

Siesta Key is a tropical island paradise, with great beaches plenty of entertainment. Sarasota is known as the cultural center of Florida.

What makes this condo unique

My vacation condominium is located across the street from Crescent Beach, renowned for its breath-taking sunsets, easy-going waves, and gorgeous, crystal-white sand. The sand is 99% pure quartz, soft and cool on the feet. Among the many awards it has earned are: “the whitest and finest sand in the world” (The Great International Beach Challenge, 1987) , “The Best Sand Beach in America” (The Travel Channel, 2004), '2017 Best Beach in America' (Dr. Beach, 2017).

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very clean with an updated kitchen and bathroom. It was unusually spacious for a one bedroom. The murphy bed in the living room added extra sleeping space. The location was great, within walking distance to the grocery store and many restaurants. The condo complex was quiet and well kept and we especially enjoyed the dock. The trolley stop was right outside the property and we were able to ride it to the beach and village, and leave our car in its parking space. It was an excellent experience and we would definitely stay here again.

The condo was clean, comfortable and accessible! Love the proximity to beach, shopping and eating.

  • 5 of 5

Great property, clean and easy to find. Nice to have dedicated parking. We would love to come back!

Only a couple of suggestions for improvements: new mattress would be nice. Carpet in bedroom could use a cleaning. Otherwise this is an affordable choice close to one of the best beaches! Lots of restaurants and shopping to choose from. Thanks Mary!

Great Condo in Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in Siesta and we had an amazing experience. This condo is in a great location! It is clean and beautiful! We really felt at home during our whole time in Siesta. That landlord is fantastic to work with and easy to get a hold of if any questions were had. The decor was great for our beach vacation. We even were lucky enough to stay an extra night! WHEN we return to Siesta, this will be our first choice! Thanks for the great experience during our stay!

Well equipped condo for the perfect stay in Siesta trip

  • 5 of 5

This condo was exactly as described. It was very clean and well equipped. We had everything we needed and the beach chairs, towels and umbrella were a huge help. We had never been to Siesta Key. The beaches are beautiful, white sand (that doesn't get hot) and the weather was perfect. We were able to spend many hours on the beach with the protection of the umbrella. There is not a direct beach access across the street of the Bay Oaks condos but many options within a few minutes drive. The smaller beach accesses 9 and 8 are hard to get a spot on the weekend, but are very private and quiet locations if you can get one on a weekday. The Bay Oaks Condominiums are on Midnight Pass Road which has a nice wide walking/bike path on both sides. We were able to run and explore in both directions. We had a great anniversary trip here.
