Why Charlie Olinger chose Siesta Key

We first stayed at El Presidente back in 2003 and fell in love with Siesta Key. We looked at many properties before purchasing this unit, but were always drawn back to El Presidente. There’s just something about this property and Siesta Key that made us feel at home.

What makes this condo unique

We love El Presidente because of its proximity to the beach. No roads to cross just walk out your door onto the pool or onto the beach. The views from our unit are amazing! Also, it's less than 2-hour drive to Walt Disney World and an hour or less to the attractions that surround Tampa. Easy airport access to one of three airports, Sarasota-Bradenton, Tampa International or Fort Meyers.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Date of Stay November 14, 2013. Your Condo is gorgeous. The nicest I’ve stayed in here! Thank you for your hospitality and the many amenities including Wi-Fi and big TV. Ophelia’s was a first class meal & Dinning experience as was Stone Wood.

What a fabulous place you have.

Thank you!

Ok property with good location.

  • 3 of 5

Unit was comfortable for the most part, but the cleaning from the previous stay was not up to par. The biggest issue was the VERY loud noise and disturbance from the unit directly below. The property has a "quiet" period between 10pm-8am which was not the case. Management/security received multiple complaints and the guest were loud 3 out of 7 nights. This is no fault of the owners but property wall,ceilings need some added insulation. Location is great, beautiful beach, and close to good restaurants.

Owner's Response: Dear Jason, we are so sorry that the unit was not cleaned properly, and are now working on getting a new cleaning company. Unfortunately what other guest do is out of our control and we take this very seriously, We are working with the El Presidente manager to find out what happened. Regards Charlie & Margaret

Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this condo for our family beach vacation. The condo is fully updated and has umbrellas, tennis rackets, etc. The front office was helpful and let us borrow tennis balls. The location is ideal. Loved that beach chairs were free on beach and you can use unitl sunset.The trolley service was free and so convenient. Hope they continue this service in Siesta Key. Will definitely visit again.

Facility & Condo is great, Beach restrictions unnecessary and unfair

  • 4 of 5

We have been annual SK vacationers for 10+ years and have stayed at El Presidente several times. We love the complex and this specific condo. However, we were very disappointed with the new rule that Tents must be far back away from water while large umbrellas are free to setup in front. This resulted in a very obstructed view of the water. It is my understanding this is an El Presidente owners association decision and is still in effect as of now; May 2017. Candidly, this will be our last year staying here given the unfair beach access rules. Tents vs Umbrellas...really, what is the difference. Owners should be aware of this impacting their rentals.

We made it!

  • 5 of 5

We were heading down at the time when "Matthew" was also heading in. We were concerned if our trip would occur. Fortunately, all went off without issue and so glad it did!

What an amazing unit this was! Not only was it clean, beautifully decorated, but equip with anything and everything we could have possibly needed.

Charlie was very easy to work with and we look forward to having an opportunity to stay in this unit again. (Glad the sliders are getting replaced, we got quite a workout from those).

Enjoyed cheering on our Buckeye's at Capt Curts! Easy walk there.

Owner's Response: Dear patty, were so happy that your flight was not delayed or canceled due to Hurricane Mathew, and that you enjoyed your stay at our condo. We are committed to keeping our condo as up to date as possible, and the new sliders are being installed tomorrow! We know that when renting on Siesta Key you have a lot of choices and we want to keep our guest coming back. Thank you for renting our condo and we hope to have you back soon. Charlie & Margaret
