Rick Briggs purchased this condo in 2002

Why Rick Briggs chose Siesta Key

This is one of the nicest beaches in the world and one of the best run condos. The location of the condo in the building is super convenient. Siesta Key is rated #1 Beach in the US-come find out why. During peak vacation times the traffic can be a little long up adn down the one road in front of the condo on Midnight Pass Road--so getting off the island can take a while. Have no fear! This location is right at the Stickney Point drawbridge so you don't have to wait--you are at the front of the line.

What makes this condo unique

The location! Nothing on Siesta Key is more convenient than this condo. Park your car and forget it. Walk out from the condo to the beach--no shoes required. Have a few beers across the street, enjoy the karaoke, and then stumble back home.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

The property itself it older however the unit had been updated and was clean! If you are looking for the Hyatt this isn't it but what it does have is comfortable accommodations that will be similar to home. The owner Rick was extremely responsive and nice. We had a nice view from the balcony of the beach. The unit has dishes, towels, beach umbrellas and toys for guest to use, this was definitely a plus bc we just didn't want to bring so many extras on a short trip. There is a common washer and dryer you can pay to use as well. The beach was lovely and there are beach chairs available for all guest. It's a quick ride to St. Armand's Circle. This was our second time to Siesta Key Beach and the people are always friendly. There are restaurants across the street if you don't want to move your car. This was a last minute getaway and the price was reasonable and we anticipate staying here again. Overall we don't have any complaints. I would recommend this property.

The apartment was like new. Very clean and roomy. It came with everything needed to make our stay comfortable inside apartment and on the beach. Property is right on the beautiful white sand beach which is perfect. The sunsets were breath taking. The water is so clear. PARADISE. The staff in the office is very helpful and friendly. I'll be back and will recommend to all my friends.

Relaxing stay at a beautiful destination.

  • 5 of 5

This condo has it all. Beautiful white sand beaches are within a rock throws distance and have the most clear water imaginable, amazing restaurants within a couple minute walking distance, and just beautiful all around scenery. The staff were more than helpful and as friendly as can be. The condos are stocked with many items which makes this a very travel friendly stay. The ultra comfortable beds and bedroom make for an amazing nights rest. Overall this offers a beautiful getaway with many tourist activities that are sure to keep the family happy and entertained. I give this condo a 5 star review. One popular phrase comes to mind when thinking back to my stay, " I'll be back".
