Property type condo

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

This recently remodeled Condominium is Clean and Beautiful! The Lanai (screened porch) is directly on the Gulf, perfect for those romantic dinners and sunsets! This unit has two separate and private Bedrooms, each with their own Bathrooms, and king-size or twin beds. It features quality furniture, with a sleeper sofa and chairs in the carpeted living room, a modern full kitchen, and dining area.

The Condominium is located on Turtle Beach, at the Southern end of Siesta Key. The "Turtle Beach" area is a quaint and fairly private "Public" Beach, mostly known and used by the locals to avoid the more crowded beaches. It is not only on the Gulf of Mexico, but is also located on a small Lagoon ("Blind Pass Lagoon"). There are Shady Trees, Picnic Tables, Barbecues, Swings, Volleyball Nets, and a small Boat Launch.

This is truly a great Vacation Rental with an awesome tropical view directly on the Gulf of Mexico!

NOTE: Be sure to see the VIDEO! NOTE: Carrie also has a LOW-COST VALUE RENTAL only 4 miles from Siesta Key - For a WHOLE WINTER (3-4 Months) Sarasota Vacation at less than half the cost of this unit, be sure to see Carrie's Rental Villa!

About Carrie Caudill

My Fisherman’s Cove unit has a commanding direct view of the Ocean! Turtle Beach is on the southern end of Siesta Key, keeping us away from the noisy, crowded area of Siesta, and down at the relaxing “old Florida” end of the island.

Carrie Caudill purchased this condo in 1999

Why Carrie Caudill chose Siesta Key

I love to toast sunsets or have dinner on my open Lanai. Fisherman’s Cove has pretty much the best Ocean views of almost any other rentals on Siesta Key, because we directly face the Ocean, and are unusually close to it. So close that I enjoy watching dolphins directly from my Lanai!

I love to walk the beach picking up sharks teeth and shells – Turtle Beach is the best place on Siesta Key for shelling. I love to walk down the beach toward Casey Key, hoping to bump into my neighbor, author Steven King.

Our boat docks are free to renters, many bringing their fishing boats, speedboats, or personal watercraft!

I love being surrounded by water, with Blind Pass Lagoon on one side, and the Gulf of Mexico on the other!

What makes this condo unique

I love being able to walk to restaurants like the Turtle Pub or Bay Front Turtles, or the classiest place on Siesta Key, Ophelia’s on the Bay!

All I can say is OMG!!! The condo was perfect. The view was amazing. We could not ask for anything more. When we arrived at the condo on Friday night, 10/2/15, it was very late because of issues at the Rental Company and the traffic from the airport to the condo was very heavy so we could not see much outside of the condo. But when we awoke the following morning, OMG it was breathtaking. My Husband, Son and I (three adults) could not believe what we were viewing from the lanai. The waves and the ocean were about 75 ft from outside the condo. We immediately went for a walk on Turtle Beach so we could enjoy the beautiful weather and sights. We did not want to go anywhere except stay at the condo & walk the beach during the day and in the evening dine at the wonderful restaurants locally then return to the condo to have a cocktail while watching the sunset. We were so content. My family and I enjoyed our stay at your condo, Carrie, and we definitely want to stay there again soon. All the necessities were available for us in the condo. The wine and gracious note you left for us upon our arrival was perfect. The washer and dryer in the condo was so convenient. The beds were so comfortable. The only regret I have is that there could have been one twin bed and one queen bed in the 2nd bedroom instead of two twin beds. Other than that everything was perfect. On the last morning in the condo the three of us were looking out from the lanai and there were dolphins not far from our view. What a way to end our vacation. Thank you so much for all that you did for us to make our vacation a memorable one. We cannot stop talking about your condo and will be in contact with you soon regarding another stay in your condo at Fisherman's Cove.

We just came home from one of the best vacations our family has ever taken. The location is thee best spot you are going to find anywhere for the money. Other condos we looked at were sometimes twice as expensive on the other 2 beaches (out of our league!) and you had to walk quite a ways to get to the beach. This condo is right in front of the gulf. You walk out the door of the lanai and your feet are instantly on sand, you are that close. The pictures need to be updated on the VRBO site. The condo obviously has gone thru some renovations because it was very modern and comfortable. It was fully stocked with everything we needed to complete our stay. I must say I have never stayed in a condo that provided so many towels, which is nice. Carrie was excellent to work with and even left us a bottle of wine in the refrigerator to enjoy after a long day of travel.

Well done, Carrie and look forward to booking again next year!

We absolutely loved our vacation here! The condo is so nice and right on the beach, even when the weather didn't cooperate we could enjoy the lanai and listen to the waves! The way the condo is open makes it seem much larger than others I have stayed in. Carrie was great to get us in early as we had driven thru the night. The pool area was a great wind break area to catch some sun when it was too chilly on the beach and we loved the shuffle board!! Fantastic condo!
