About Debbie Sipp

We live in central IL and love to escape to Siesta Key. Having 4 grandchildren keeps us busy and traveling as our daughter's family lives in VA. Since recently retiring, we have plans for more travel; but our unique barn home on 80 acres also keeps us very busy. Debbie is a quilt maker and loves to cook, and Jim is very handy and handles all of the equipment and needs that 80 acres entails. We love to share our condo, so that others may enjoy the beautiful area as much as we do. The photo we will include was taken on the Maine coast-our retirement trip-2009. Enjoy our condo. Jim and Debbie

Debbie Sipp purchased this condo in 2004

Why Debbie Sipp chose Siesta Key

We searched many Florida locations for several years before settling on Siesta Key. It just felt warm and welcoming and the beauty of the Gulf sold us. With the location narrowed down, we searched for the right condo. And we found it in our Fisherman's Cove condo. We have excellent management-very attentive to the needs of ourselves and our guests. The complex of 2 buildings is small (each only 3 stories high), gated, and is so well maintained. We always meet nice people there-both other owners and guests!

What makes this condo unique

We love the drive down from the bridge linking Sarasota to Siesta Key to our condo-with bike paths on each side and large tropical trees and gardens lining the roadway. When you arrive at our condo, you notice the Sarasota Bay lagoon on our parking lot side. Then when you enter, you just have this great ocean view of the Gulf of Mexico! There is something so calming about viewing the water, and we have it on each side! The beach is just literally at our doorstep which makes it convenient for families as we know how children like to go back and forth for snacks, toys, etc. and our first floor location makes that extremely easy. We have furnished the condo just like our own home, because it is, so we have a lot of extras. We love to treat ourselves to some of the great restaurants in the area, but always race home to see the sunset on our lanai or patio--so very special. So relax and enjoy yourselves-we all need a vacation like this one!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Siesta Key is a beatiful location for a family vacation and Debbie and Jim's condominium on the beach is a home away from away. We have stayed at Fisherman's Cove in the past but their place has everything you need and has been completely updated on the inside and even has a washer and dryer (most units do not). Our children loved being able to step outside our back door to enjoy the beautiful beach, and then conveniently fish off the dock at the front of the unit. We have fallen in love with this location and we will definately return for years to come!

Great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first family vacation to "the beach". This property is PERFECT if you have kids! The location is ideal being on the first floor-you are literally in sand the instant you step outside the beautiful lanai. Kids can play right there with the provided sand toys or take a very short walk to get to a spot on the beach-it literally is at your doorstep. It is a very convenient location to come and go from the condo for snacks, bathroom break, etc. There are plenty of beach towels, beach chairs, and umbrellas. Our 4 year old daughter loved collecting sea shells-there are SO many! The pool was a hit for our 1 1/2 year old. We also rented a kayak, which you are conveniently able to do at turtle beach, right next to the property. We also loved spotting the manatees hanging out in the lagoon on a daily basis. We went on an "adventure", taking the free trolley from turtle beach up to siesta beach, which has a great playground (as does turtle beach) and amazing beach, however it is much more crowded there. This condo was furnished nicely, had all the conveniences of home, and we thought was the perfect location. We would love to go back!

Perfect Condo, everything you need & more is already there!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our trip to this amazing condo, everything was perfect! Fully stocked with extras that we haven't had at other condos, saving time and money. The condo is very organized and sets right on the beach. We unfortuately had a ton of rain while we where there, but with the location of the condo we were able to jet out to the beach in between rain showers to soak up the sun while we could. We were also blessed to see a momma sea turtle swim onto the beach and lay her eggs......Right in front of the condo on the beach. We went to stick our feet in the water before heading to bed and she just swam up dug her hole and laid her eggs. Seeing my son wants to become a vet, this was over the top exciting and a once in a lifetime moment. We look forward to spending more time in condo B103! It is above and beyond any other condo we have stayed at! Thank you again for everything! :)

Just show up with bathing suit and flip flops...everything else is waiting for you there!

  • 5 of 5

Best Florida experience ever!! We were married on the Beach with Sunset wedding photos. It was absolutely gorgeous and directly out the back door of this awesome condo. You literally have everything you need waiting for you. Private beachfront parking (those poor souls searching for public beach parking for hours...yikes!!), tons and tons of activities and great dining choices, we even saw dolphins on 2 occasions and new turtle nests on our morning beach walks. This was paradise and I will surely visit again!!

We were delighted with Condo 103B at Fisherman's Cove. It is a wonderful place to vacation, and next Florida trip is already being talked over. And yes, we will stay at Fisherman's Cove again - hopefully at Debbie and Jim's. The condo itself is very tastefully decorated. It is super clean and very well organized too. Everything that you needed for a great vacation was included. There were beach chairs, umbrellas, coolers and even beach towels. Being on the first floor, It was nice to just step outside and relax. Being from northern Michigan we spend as much time outside as possible, so this was great. Basically, the interior of the condo was used for showering, sleeping, a little "light" cooking and that fabulous margarita machine!! How could you go wrong?? that's the thing - you really couldn't. Another great feature of this part of Siesta Key @ Turtle Beach is the privacy on the beach. We came to unwind and relax, and that we did. There are so many nice features to this condo and complex I really can't list them all. Sincewe have owned a timeshare since 1986 we have visited many times to Florida, and I can honestly say - this has been our favorite place.

So I wish to convey thanks to Debbie and Jim for their gracious hospitality.
