Sarasota is the leading cultural center of Florida, its rich arts scene rivals some of the biggest urban centers in the country. With dozens of performing arts venues, renowned opera, theatre and ballet companies, numerous art museums, a thriving visual arts community and art festivals that draw visitors from across the globe, it's easy to understand why people come to Sarasota for art vacations instead of beach getaways. Thankfully, the two are not mutually exclusive.

The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art. Housed on the site of the circus magnate's former estate on the shore of Sarasota Bay, the museum hosts one of the largest collections of Rubens canvasses in the world, along with many other works by Old Masters. But that's only the beginning of the Ringling legacy. You can also tour Ca d'Zan Mansion, a magnificent 56-room Venetian Gothic palace that served as the Ringling's residence also see the restored

Historic Asolo Theater -- built in Italy in the late 1800s

Thank you for the most wonderful stay and memories!!

  • 5 of 5

This is by far the best place I have ever stayed at in Siesta Key. It was even better than the Penthouse we stayed at last time, which was much more expensive. And this place was right next to the secure gated entrance to the beach. The unit was decorated in very tasteful but functional decor. The owners have truly thought of every possible need during your stay. The kitchen was equipped with everything you could possible need. You could have an elegant dinner in the dining room, or a family cookout on the patio. At night we roasted marshmallows on the most beautiful firepit I've ever seen! The beach is really only a few steps away and they provide everything you could possibly want, even a cooler. And parking was right next to the patio. You didn't have to carry groceries or luggage up flights of stairs. With that beautiful beach right next to you, believe me, you will not miss a pool. We stayed in Unit #1, and my Granddaughter is in a wheelchair, and she could enter and move inside the rental very easily. I cannot say enough wonderful things about our stay. We will definitely be back.

Completely equipped, completely private, and very cozy unit. Directly on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

This was my family's first time staying in siesta key, and needless to say it will not be the last. The home was exactly as described and the location was even better than described. I would recommend this property to anyone wanting to take advantage of one of the nicest beaches in the world.

It is spacious and comfortable and we highly recommend At The Beach

  • 5 of 5

This is the 3rd year we spent our vacation At The Beach. We rent the largest unit, which is spacious enough to give us some privacy and not feel we are on top pf each other. Jim the Manager cordially greets us and explains details of the unit. He is also available if we have questions or concerns any time.

We love the comfort of the unit and the convenience of being just a few steps from the beach. We are hoping to come back again next year

Very close to beach and all the Key has to offer

  • 5 of 5

The location is perfect for those who love an easy access to the beach. Rooms are clean, furnished in a casual manner. Great beds in a quiet section of the Key. Can take a "free" taxis to Siesta Key "downtown" and avoid the challenge of parking.
