Property type condo

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5), steps from beach

NOT YOUR GRANDMA'S CONDO! Our 2BR/2BA condo is on the gulf side of Palm Bay Club, one of the most sought-after properties on Siesta Key. Step out of the condo and onto the palm tree-lined path leading directly to Crescent Beach, voted the #1 beach in the U.S. for it's fine white quartz sand that never burns your feet! Start your day with a stroll on the beach, picking up seashells. Relax the day away, pop back to the condo for lunch, maybe BBQ on the beach for dinner and stay for a breathtakingly beautiful sunset.

Relax by one of two private, heated pools or in the jacuzzi or sauna. Drop a line in the water from the fishing pier or play a game of table tennis in the rec room. Play tennis on one of the lighted on-site courts or shoot a round at one of the many nearby golf courses. While the condo has a fully-equipped kitchen, Siesta Key also has countless choices for local dining, nightlife and shopping.

Return to the condo, put on a movie, have a drink and relax. You are home! We are the perfect vacation spot for retirees, families, weekend get-aways or honeymooners.

About Sue Beulke

Dan and I live in Minnesota (brrr!) We just became empty nesters and wanted to find a warm weather vacation home where our family could come together for visits in the years to come. We have different vacation styles: two of us like to 'do' - golf, fish, run, sports, etc. and the other two like to 'be' - read books, enjoy music, people watch, relax, etc. We've found the best of both on Siesta Key.

Sue Beulke purchased this condo in 2010

Why Sue Beulke chose Florida South West

We wanted a warm weather destination. Word-of-mouth and research for good beaches led us to this property. Being only 20 mins. from the Sarasota airport is a huge plus. After all, when you're on vacation you just want to get there! Sarasota itself is only 10 mins. away with it's marina, restaurants, shopping and cultural opportunities. And then, when we got onto Siesta Key, we just knew we'd found the perfect get-a-away. We love the little village of Siesta Key itself and the fact that it has only local eateries (no golden arches here). We were looking for a place where you walk in and think 'Wow, this place is really nice!' and that's how we felt when we walked through the door of our condo at Palm Bay Club. Wow!

What makes this condo unique

We like that we are 'close' to it all but not 'in the middle' of it all. A place big enough to have all the amenities but not so big that you feel you need to get up at 6:00 a.m. to reserve your chair by the pool or beach. Of course we enjoy the beach and lovely weather. We love Siesta Key and all the great food and shopping (it's got the best ice cream shoppe). We like the convenience of a small grocery within walking distance yet several larger just over the bridge. The on-site fitness center is nice too if you've eaten and relaxed a little too much. We haven't stayed when the turtles are nesting yet but we look forward to that. We have seen dolphins though which is an amazing site when you're from up north!

THE place to stay on Siesta Key!

  • 5 of 5

I grew up in Sarasota and brought my family to town for a HS reunion. Siesta Key was the beach I roamed growing up and I wanted my family to experience it. This is the best VRBO we've rented-and we've used VRBOs in California, NY, DC, and Florida.

It was hotel clean, but home-friendly. No bugs, no signs of previous guests (except the beach tools they donated for future renters), stylish and comfortable furnishings and kitchen, A/C was in perfect condition as well as ceiling fans in each bedroom, satellite TV with more stations than we pay for at home, free wifi, key-code entry, an elevator to take you to the 3rd floor, room 133, and of course, the perfect location-the Gulf side of Siesta Key.

The condo is easy to find, very safe, on the best side of the key with a short walk from the condo right onto the white sand beaches of Siesta Key. Full length pool/lawn chairs or regular pool chairs are provided by the club so you don't need to bring mats or chairs for the beach. Just grab one as you step onto the beach and choose your spot. They have showers to wash off the sand as you leave the beach.

The public area of the beach is further down so you get a great open beach with fewer people. This is how I would have liked to have experienced Siesta Key as a teenager-easy access/beach tools provided/short walk home when you need a break from the sun. (No crowds, no parking issues, no hauling armfuls of gear to the beach, etc.) There were also cabanas you could reserve or rent but we just used the gear provided and had a great time. There were tennis courts and a pool we thought we would use but my family can do those things anywhere and only wanted to be at the beach or taking a nap in the beautiful condo.

This condo is a great, central location for visiting any part of Sarasota. It takes 5 minutes to get off the key from the South Bridge and 10 minutes if you use the North Bridge. The local Publix (just over the South Bridge) has any groceries/extra beach toys you want. We would definitely rent this condo again and for a longer stay (we were there 4 days). Sue was great to work with, very honest, and refunded our security deposit. This is the place to stay for your Sarasota/Siesta Key vacation!

Sufficient, but not outstanding. The Decour is heavy and dark but not dirty. I was a little disappointed considering it was pricing. Housekeeping was hitter mess and lightbulbs we're out in several places. If the price was negotiable I would stay there again .

May17-21 Palm Bay Club #133

  • 5 of 5

My daughter (age 29) and I really enjoyed our mother-daughter long weekend at Siesta Key, and the Palm Bay Club #133 was the perfect place to stay.

The condo was exactly as advertised - each room was actually a little bigger in person than it looked online. Everything was immaculate. Kitchen was perfect for the breakfasts and lunches we prepared,. and also would have been fully functional to cook dinners (but we went every night for dinner) . Beds were very comfortable. Bathrooms were updated nicely. Big screen TVs were great and lots of channels! No washer-dryer in the unit, but it would be very easy to use the laundry area on the first floor of the building if you needed it. Beach towels were provided. There wasn't any kind of gulf view from the lanai, but that was fully disclosed by the owner before we booked, so we were not disappointed in any way.

It was a very short, pleasant stroll to the beach, and there were plenty of beach chairs available on the beach at all times of the day. We had wonderful, hot and sunny weather every day. It only rained very late afternoon or evening.

It was so nice to have a keycode lockbox, rather than have to worry about keys.

The owner, Sue, was very responsive to any questions we had, and a real pleasure. Our security/damage deposit was fully refunded in what seemed like record time.

We loved Siesta Key. Our favorite restaurant was The Cottage... we highly recommend the Adam and Eve martini!

We hope to get back there soon!

A very well property and we had a great time!

  • 5 of 5

The owner, Sue, has been well communicated from the beginning. She even reached out to us the date we checked in. The location just can't be any better. It is just a couple mins walk to the #1 beach in the country. Even better, that is a private beach. It was never crowded the time we stayed. The property is very clean and well stocked. We had a great time and we highly recommend it!

Very Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at this property. The owner was extremely responsive to questions, and timely with the deposit refund. Our 1.5 year old son had a blast at the beach, and there were an assortment of beach toys left by other guests.

Excellent value!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this condo. Although we have been coming to Siesta Key for years, we had never stayed at Palm Bay Club! We will definitely be returning... to this condo. It was clean, well stocked and nicely decorated!
