Property description

• 2nd Floor Unit #201.
•Reserved parking space is located under the building and you car will be kept cool 24/7.

•Second bedroom has two twin beds and flat screen TV.

•House of the Sun supplies lounge chairs both at the pool and on our section of the beach.

Views from the balcony face off to the southwest. Although this condo does not offer a view of the gulf, we still have a very nice view facing off towards the southwest and we get a wonderful southern exposure on our balcony all day long. House of the Sun has fourth and fifth floor decks with tables, chairs and lounge chairs and is a popular spot for sunset and the breathtaking panoramic views of Siesta Key Beach. Our HEATED POOL, and PRIVATE TENNIS COURTS overlook the gulf. During winter season the location cannot be beat, being one block from the Stickney Point Bridge (no long, slow lines on and off the key), and restaurants, bars, grocery, bike rental, drug store, ice cream, 7/Eleven, and much, much more, just across the street from House of the Sun.

Guests of House of the Sun enjoy bringing their evening cocktails and snacks to the FIFTH FLOOR DECK where a horn is typically blown at sunset every evening. CHARCOAL GRILLS are availble with a beautiful picnic area that overlooks the beauty of the Gulf.

If you want a stress-free drive-free vacation, away from the public beach but still on the beautiful quartz crystal sands of Siesta Key Beach, this is one to consider.

If you would like to watch any of the video tours of the condos that I own and privately rent on Siesta Key, you can do so by logging into youtube. In the youtube search engine, input donnagrimm and all of my videos will appear. You can view my Crescent Royale 2 bedroom 2 bath condo and my condo at House of the Sun as well as my Sea Club II one bedroom condo.

Please feel free to call or email me anytime. Have a great day.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Hi. I'm Donna Grimmer and I have four condos that I would love to show to you. If you are familiar with youtube, you can search out my videos by typing donnagrimm into the search engine at www.youtube.com. You can also find them on VRBO. They are 101699, 314793, 108307 and 721757 Although I do not live in Florida, I'm on Siesta Key many times a year and constantly check to make sure that my condos are in excellent condition. If you have any questions about my condos, please feel free to contact me anytime through this VRBO website. Have a great day.

Why the Owner Chose Sarasota, FL, USA:
House of the Sun is an extremely well run and maintained property. And we have all of the conveniences of shopping right across the street. We do not have to deal with the slow moving traffic on the key as we are just off of the south bridge (Stickney Point). Having a condo on the 2nd floor is a wonderful convenience, even with the 2 elevators, we can just walk up one flight of stairs to our condo. We love our place at House of the Sun!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Dave and I have been coming to Siesta Key for over 15 years and we love it. We decided to purchase our condo at House of the Sun for so many reasons. First, we really like the location. The complex is on the gulf and one block away from the Stickney Point Bridge. During the busier times of the year, it is wonderful to be able to leave our building, cross the bridge and get to our destination without long, slow lines. We enjoy the large, heated pool the overlooks the gulf, and we love the decks on the fourth and fifth floors. Every evening, guests of House of the Sun love to come up to the 4th and 5th floor decks for sunset. A horn is typically blown from our 5th floor deck just as the sun is disappearing into the Gulf. The deck provides a panoramic view of Siesta Key Beach, and we are one of the very view complexes that have these wonderful decks right on the beach. We love the convenience of being able to walk across the street for groceries at the Crescent Market, cocktails at the Sniki Tiki and dinner at Claytons. Typically, my car stays under the building in my covered parking space for most of my time at House of the Sun. Everything that I need is right across the street, from rentals, to shops, to a variety of eateries, liquor stores, ice cream, pizza, pharmacy, rentals, and the list goes on and on...I simply cannot say enough about the location and amenities here at House of the Sun!
