About the property

2 Bedroom 2 Bath Condo on the Beach, Private Beach w Beach Chairs & Heated Pool

House of the Sun, Unit 201, Siesta Key

The following is a description of my condo at House of the Sun:

•House of the Sun is located at 6518 Midnight Pass Road, Siesta Key, Florida 34242

• 2nd Floor Unit #201.

•Reserved parking space is located under the building and you car will be kept cool 24/7.

•Master Bedroom has a king size bed, double mirrored closets, a mirrored vanity area, flat screen TV and is very spacious.

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

•Living Room has High speed wireless internet, Surround Sound Home Theater with Ipod docking station, Blue Ray DVD player and 55'' flat screen smart TV.

•Fully equipped kitchen with a clothes washer and clothes dryer.

•Balcony with two lounge chairs, table w/4 chairs.

•Beach towels, beach lounge chairs provided on our beach by House of the Sun, and beach toys are all here. No need to bring any.

•Heated Pool and our own private tennis courts overlook the gulf.

•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.

Donna Grimmer purchased this condo in 2005

Why Donna Grimmer chose Florida South West

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!

What makes this condo unique

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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Donna! We had a wonderful week at your beautiful condo! Crescent Beach is going to be hard to beat. We will likely always compare other beaches to it and they will pale in comparison! Thanks for such a clean and well-stocked condo. We really enjoyed the two boogie boards that were on the deck. We had great beach weather this week.:)

Beautiful condo on an amazing beach

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a wonderful week at this House of the Sun condo. Staying in a condo that is right on the beach is absolutely the way to go! We had never been to Florida for a beach vacation and picked this location because of Siesta Key's highly rated beach and were not disappointed. The sand (which did NOT get hot to walk on despite temps in the 90s all week!) and water were wonderful. The House of the Sun is a very nice building with a pool, tennis court, weber grills and a small game room by the pool with ping pong, air hockey and a few arcade games. We especially loved that they have lots of beach chairs (lounge and the low ones that work great to sit right at the edge of the water) that you can pick up as you walk out to the beach. This condo was spacious, extremely clean with comfortable beds and pillows. The kitchen had a great variety of cooking equipment and utensils, dishes, and extras like a blender to make margaritas. We were so happy to also use the beach umbrella, beach towels, boogie boards and sand toys provided by Donna. The fifth floor of the building is a beautiful open deck with tables and chairs that is the perfect spot for watching the sun set - we saw several breathtaking sunsets! My husband and son also enjoyed the large screen TV in the evenings. Overall I would highly recommend this beach, the House of the Sun and this unit in particular!

We stayed at Donna's condo for two weeks. What a wonderful condo! Everything Donna says about her condo is accurate. The master bedroom was very comfortable including the king size bed and our guest were equally comfortable in the guest bedroom. I especially appreciate how well organized the condo was including the kitchen and pantry. This was our fifth time in the South Village location on Crescent Beach and this was by far the nicest accommodations we have had. The proximity to the beach and the local area makes it a great location. Thank you, Donna!

Wonderful Trip

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time with our late November stay. It was very quiet at the condo and we often had the pool to yourself. The beach is the beautiful white sands you would expect and the condo offers a top deck for watching the sun set. We watched from here on one occasion and the residences where so very friendly. The condo itself was clean and neat, the kitchen was modern and we cooked many meals there.

Siesta Key is a great place to visit, right across from the condo you have the Orange Octopus which we stopped at for ice cream each night. I would highly recommend a stay for everyone in Siesta Key as it's a enjoyable experience.

Owner's Response: Hi Jordon, Thank you for the wonderful review. I am so happy that you enjoyed Siesta Key, its offerings and my condo at House of the Sun. The Orange Octopus is wonderful for ice cream with the family and there are no many 'walk-to' options to visit from House of the Sun. I hope that you will come back again in the future. Happy Holidays to you and to your family! Donna G.

The Best Vacation Ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at House of the Sun so much we didn't want to leave. Great location, Amazing Condo,had everything anyone could need. So well stocked, so clean and so pretty, We felt right at home. And so close to everything . We love Capitan Kurt's and the Sniki Tiki and all we had to do was walk across the road. And just a few steps to the wonderful beach.We took my 80 and 83 year old parents along and was so easy for them to get to the beach and to the car , They had a great time. Love this place and can't wait to go back....
