This was our fourth visit to Siesta Key and this beautiful condo. The fact that we return again and again speaks for itself! We love the New England cottage style architecture of the buildings, the spaciousness and tasteful decoration of the interior. The owners are so thoughtful and have provided every necessity for a carefree vacation.

The view of the boats in the bay from the screen porch, the pool just steps away, of course the beautiful white sand beach close by and the city of Sarasota with its wonderful arts and restaurant scene - its the complete package!

Perfect for couples

  • 5 of 5

A great condo with everything you need for a very relaxing vacation. Very spacious for 2 people. Lovely pool right opposite the property and just a few minutes walk from the beach. The owners even had a cart to wheel your beach chairs and sun shade to the soft, white, sand. Plenty of places to eat and drink nearby - although you do have to drive. Just one small fault - the internet connection in the condo was very slow towards the back of the property. I got a better signal outside by the pool. In fairness, this was probably not a bad thing as I was supposed to be on vacation rather than checking work emails. Overall, I have no hesitation in recommending this property.

A home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Gulf and Bay Club Bayside for our 3rd anniversary. We absolutely LOVED it!!!! The owner's are wonderful, friendly and helpful. I felt like I had known them forever! Their condo is gorgeous and we loved that it was right on the bay and could look out at the water. Siesta Key beach is right across the street. My husband who prefers the pool loved the beach because of the white, cool sand. While in Siesta Key we also went to Sarasota a few times. There are plenty of places to eat at, water activities to do and shops to shop at. I would highly recommend Siesta Key and Gulf and Bay Club Bayside.

We were lucky enough to stay here in April and December 2012 and can quite honestly say we find it hard to vacation anywhere else now. The complex is well maintained and has 2 lovely pools and BBQs along with a fitness room. The accommodation is immaculate and has been lovingly kept up to date with plasma TVs in the lounge, bedroom and kitchen, a beautiful walk in shower and the most comfortable bed to sleep in. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you will need and the coolers and beach chairs are an added bonus. Each morning we had breakfast on the lanai overlooking the waterway, tranquil and quiet. Beautiful Siesta Key beach is just over the road and Siesta Village is 5 minutes in the car with so many restaurants to choose from. There are lots of places to visit and lots of excellent shopping to be done! We always feel sad when the times comes to leave as it really is home from home and we can only thank Cheryl and George for letting us have this bit of luxury and paradise each year. It goes without saying we have already booked for this year!

Perfect location, quiet but convenient... truly beautiful and modern condo!!!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I stayed here for a long weekend, just to get away from the winter gray of the Northeast and relax. We were impressed! Initial concerns about not being DIRECTLY on the beach were immediately swept away upon entering the beautiful, modern, and spacious walk-up condo... which was only steps from the bay, and brief walk across the street to the famous sands of Siesta Key. So we got the best of both worlds, and didn't have to stay in a shoddy high-rise!

We could tell that the owners take great care of this unit, and have made every amenity available in an effort to make our stay as comfortable as possible. In a rental market drowning in outdated condos, lined with pastel colors and wicker furniture, this unit was truly a breath of fresh air... so yes, we'll definitely be visiting again next year!
