About the Property
Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 2 Baths, (Sleeps up to five persons)
TORTUGA IS A MONTHLY RENTAL ONLY, so you never feel like you are in hotel surrounded by tourists. You are truly at home.
Granite countertops, maple floors, and top level furnishings and linens throughout. The master bedroom has a comfy king bed. The guest bedroom has two twins but can be converted to a king before your arrival if you prefer. Just ask and we'll have the unit ready the way you want it!
You can sleep six comfortably, two in each bedroom, and another two on the (comfortable) pull out sofa on the balcony. The lanai can be converted into a private 3rd bedroom with blinds/curtains on both sides.
Tortuga is one of the most prestigious condo developments in Siesta Key, but not at all stuffy. Tortuga is on the quiet and prestigious southern end of Siesta Key known as Turtle Beach. Our shelling rivals Sanibel Island's and Siesta Key's beaches are always on the annual World's Top Ten Beaches listing, including being recently being named #1 Beach in America!
Unlike most condos in Tortuga and Siesta Key, we have a washer/dryer right in the unit. We are also unique in that we have an old fashioned porch swing on the balcony where you can watch the sunset over the Gulf of Mexico! You can dine at the mahogany table that seats eight, at the granite covered breakfast bar, or at our favorite spot, on the beautiful balcony that has a Gulf view. Also unique is an indoor / outdoor heated pool, and use of our tennis courts for guests. Although we are Gulf Front, the Bay side is just two minutes walk, with access to our fishing docks and boating slips, too. Tortuga has it all.
We are also very senior friendly, with grab bars in both bathrooms, elevators, and a convenient, secure indoor parking garage. If you have any additional senior-friendly needs, please let us know!
Before making a payment, always call the owner at the number listed on our website to make sure your payment instructions are accurate.

As you may know, Sarasota is one of the greatest dining and arts communities in the south. We have two great restaurants and watering holes a three minute walk away. Throughout Siesta Key there are wonderful restaurants and they are usually very well priced. Sarasota has truly world class theater and dance, several museums for kids and grownups alike, and an amazing range on activities on the water: boating, fishing, sightseeing, you name it.
About the owner: Before purchasing our vacation dream home in Siesta Key, we rented several VRBO condos in the area. As new owners, we immediately remodeled from top to bottom and we know you'll be pleased with the combination of luxurious appointments and casual, comfortable surroundings. We're a family with two teachers, John and Li, and two great kids, Carina and Max. John and Li met in college in Ohio, moved to Florida and began raising our family. (The kids know how to take care of the condominium when we're not renting so we promise you won't find crayon marks on the walls! Speaking of walls, you will find tasteful, collectible art, including photographs from your co-host, a Pulitzer-Prize winning photographer) The condo is our weekend, free time and summer getaway and we've decided to allow others to enjoy it, too, particularly in the lovely winter season. Unlike most of the condos in Siesta Key, Tortuga rents by the month so you won't feel like you are in a hotel. Our condo is also our home and not like most typical rental properties. We hope you will make it your home away from home, too!
Why the Owner Chose Siesta Key, Florida, United States of America:
Tortuga is a very prestigious property in Siesta Key, but not at all stuffy. Unlike most other condo developments, it's not overrun with cars and views of concrete from other complexes. Tortuga is directly on the beach and there is a huge grassy courtyard with tropical flowers and wonderful landscaping. Ground floor garage parking is provided, leaving a beautiful view all around and great security, too. As you know, Siesta Key boasts that it has the recently ranked #1 beach in the world. To the north end of Siesta Key, there is a lovely, quaint village with great walking, fantastic restaurants and a great weekend farmer's market, too. There is also a very busy public beach at the north end of Siesta Key. Tortuga is at the prestigious and far quieter southern end, known as Turtle Beach. The shelling here rivals Sanibel. The gulf views are amazing. The bay side with fishing docks and boating slips is just a two minute walk away, too. The drive along Midnight Pass Rd. in this part of the key has a tree canopy, multi-million dollar homes, and just a few condos. It's not overrun with touristy hotel-like condos like the northern end of Siesta Key. Although all of Siesta Key is great, the southern end doesn't have traffic congestion problems, is far more quiet, yet is just a short drive (or even bike ride) to Siesta Key Village. We really do believe we've found paradise here! Tortuga is very friendly. It is unique in that it has an indoor-outdoor pool, an expansive newly remodeled community room, elevators, and is wonderfully maintained. In the unlikely event you would have any difficulties in the condo, Brian, the full-time superintendent of Tortuga, is always there to help out. If you desire your own weekly cleaning, our maid can stop by to help you, too.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Beach front property with Gulf of Mexico views. Totally recently remodeled! A private beach not overrun with tourists. Shelling that rivals Sanibel Island. Watch the sunset from the old fashioned porch swing. Maple wood laminate flooring throughout. Quiet and relaxing. Not noisy and not congested like much of the northern end of Siesta Key. Tennis. Swimming. Fishing. Boating. Indoor-outdoor heated pool. Three minute walking distance to two great restaurants and watering holes. Washer dryer in unit (a rare find in Tortuga and in Siesta Key). Gourmet kitchen with the finest appliances and accessories. Granite in the kitchen and both bathrooms.
