About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

UPDATED UNIT. Seashell Condominiums is smaller complex located directly on world famous Crescent Beach of Siesta Key--recognized internationally for its fine powdery white sand--cool to walk on even in the heat of summer! Warm crystal blue waters, tropical breezes, and the most inspiring sunsets.

Our beach descends gradually into the warm gulf waters for safe swimming and wading. Whether your goal is a week-long family vacation or a few months of relief from the Northern winter-- Sea Shell and Siesta Key area offers year-round enjoyment.You are literally just steps from the white powdery sand.

This unit is fully furnished. It has 2 bedrooms(one with a master bed and 2nd room has 2 new double/full beds) 2 full baths and plenty of closet space, a fully-equipped kitchen, big screen TV, and DVD, leather couches and free WI-FI, large living room and dining area. Unit is NOT an ocean view but the building is directly on Crescent Beach so literally steps from the sand once you exit the unit. 2 elevators and coin operated laundry facilities available on each floor of the five-story complex.

This is a condo rental, not a hotel. However, Bed and Bath Linens are provided but guests MUST bring their own Beach towels. For your convenience, a start up roll of toilet paper and one of kitchen paper towel is provided but we do not provide supplies for your entire stay.

Absolutely, NO PETS and NO SMOKING allowed in the units and in the common areas of the complex.

Restaurants, bars and convenience stores just steps away. Enjoy Capt. Kurt's world famous clam chowder right across the street.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved Siesta Key , and had a wonderful stay at your condo. It was a nice roomy place and we loved the walk to the beach as well as the entertainment across the street. It was so nice to have chairs for the beach and to watch the sunset over the beautiful Gulf . Beautiful place and we will definitely consider coming back. Maybe even same time same place. Beautiful area.

Thank you again!

Dear Marci & George,

Thank you for your wonderful email. I hope you do visit Siesta Key very soon. You can contact us at anytime for rates and availability. The restoration project at Sea Shell will be complete by December and the next time you will see a freshly painted building and new walkways. We can't wait for the new look!

All the best to you both,

Maddalen & Riccardo

Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We drove down to Siesta Key from Tampa arriving later in the evening. We were provided detailed instructions to get the key from the lock box. It was dark outside so, very nice to have a light you could turn on to see the lock box versus trying to use the light from your smart phone while you read the instructions!

We were very happy with the condo. Very clean place. It is decorated nicely, kitchen is well equipped. Beds were comfortable in each room.

The owners were quick to respond to questions.

Steps to the beach which is a huge plus for us. A pleasant surprise for us was a beach umbrella in the unit which is not the norm in other units. There were beach toys as well. An added bonus was a drying rack on the deck to dry your towels and suits.

We would stay here again the next time we come to Siesta Key!

Beautiful beach condo

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful condo, steps away from a beautiful beach! The beds were big and comfortable, we appreciated the extra towels and beach toys and had an amazing time! The pool is on the small side and the parking is a tad awkward, but neither are major factors. We will definitely bring our family back!

Well kept and big appartment

  • 4 of 5

The place is very nice and well kept. Close proximity yo the beach. I have it 4 stars because there were construction in appartment next door even on weekends and they started as early as 7 am. I informed this to the owner and he says he was not aware they started that early but I wish I had known there would be construction ahead of time which I didn't. Overall very nice place

Exactly what we expected and wanted...

  • 5 of 5

The information we received and the reviews we read gave us an accurate picture of our stay. The condo is very nicely decorated and we were very happy to get two full beds in the second bedroom which is not common. The closets are both walk in closets with lot of space. The bathrooms were very clean as was the entire condo. We had no trouble making it ours for the few days we stayed.

If I had anything remotely negative to say it would be that the condo is carpeted. It was very clean and I think anyone would be hard pressed to find a stain but my son is really allergic so we had to make sure we kept allergy meds handy because of it.

The owners were great to communicate with. I never had a problem that I needed to reach them for but they did answer my questions graciously and descriptively. All the instructions were specific and easy to follow. I love to communicate via email and I downloaded the app which helped me message them and vice versa very easily.

We were able to park a second car in the parking lot up front with no problem because it wasn't peak season and we were grateful for that. It was great to have one of the cars in a covered spot. The beach is steps away and although the condo is closer to the street side than the ocean, it was no problem for any of us to walk the few steps it took to get there (and I'm 7 months pregnant).

We are happy to have spent our family vacation here and if we go back to siesta key we will definitely look into staying here again.

Thank you!

Owner's Response: Dear Guest, My sincere thanks for taking the time to write such an accurate, detailed review. It not only allows us, as owners to promote our vacation home but it helps potential renters in their research to find the appropriate place and to know what to expect. Our preference is a non-carpeted unit as well and it is in the planning for our last phase of renovation which we hope to accomplish in the near future. In the meantime, we steam clean the living area carpet periodically to keep it as hygienic as possible. We welcome your growing family back to Unit #209 soon to enjoy the beautiful sunsets of Siesta Key. Best wishes to you, Riccardo & Maddalen, Owners.
