This unit was phenomenal inside and out!

  • 5 of 5

What a truly fantastic vacation at B21. Gorgeous, rich, warm colors indoors. The owners spared no expense equipping this condo with luxury, comfortable furnishings. Vibrant colors with wall-sized mirroring make the space feel expansive. The huge-screen television gives it a movie theater effect. Plus so many aesthetically-pleasing additions. Also the unit is spotlessly clean and obviously well-maintained. That's the inside. Oh. My. Gosh. The outside! The photos online don't convey just how close you are to the bay. We had ring-side seats! The lanai became our favorite spot on the planet. Just a few steps across the lawn and we were walking on the pier. During our time there (July) the pier was generally not used and we had it to ourselves in the comfortable lawn chairs provided. We sat for hours watching the boat traffic, the fish jumping, and twice dolphins! There's a heron that visits and hangs around daily that has been nicknamed Charlie by the reviewers in the condo signature book. This vacation was total bliss. Kudos to the owners and Siesta4Rent for making it spectacular.

What a fabulous home base for a great week on the best beach in America"

  • 5 of 5

Unit B21 at the Bay Oaks provided us with an awesome base camp for the week, providing all of the amenities and appliances for a great stay. Coffee on the Lanai watching boats in the bay, observing fishing on the pier (with many of the caught fish being fed to the resident blue Herron), and spotting an occasional manatee and dolphin in the bay made for very great beginnings to the day. We had a great week at the condo on the bay. We went to Anna Maria to the north, and Nokomis to the south, but always found our way back to Siesta Key or Crescent beaches which were only minutes away from the condo for a great time in the gulf waters and white sand beaches.

The accommodations were great and an overall the location and furnishings of B21 make it a terrific place to have a wonderful week of relaxing and enjoying.

Thanks.

Siesta Key Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The condo location and setting is a perfect venue on Florida's intercoastal waterway if you want to just relax and enjoy the amenities and activities of the area. Sitting on the lanai watching all types of boats pass by provides a relaxing escape from the normal everyday activities.

The pristine sandy beach across the street provides a beautiful setting for lying in the sun, swimming, and watching the sunset create a kaleidoscope of beautiful images in the sky.

There are many activities and restaurants in the area to accommodate your specific preferences. For anyone wanting to get away from the daily grind and just enjoy the serenity afforded by this location I would highly recommend this condo and location.

Upon arrival at 6157Midnight Pass Road, Unit B21 we were met with lush greenery, sunshine, and the welcoming mat to invite us in. Entering the vacation condo gave us the impression of being in a world all it's own. Walking into the living room you felt as if you were in the tropics, an island flavor, rattan furniture, floral prints, most impressive, the view thru the patio doors. Wifi is provided, as many tv stations one could watch, all one needs are provided for.. Having your coffee in the lanai, the view of the pier 40feet away, all gave one a feeling of serenity and beauty. As well "Charlie" the resident Heron visited and kept us amused. We enjoyed Inter Coastal drives, boat trip, restaurants, visited the attractions, and shopped.

We loved our vacation in Siesta Key. One was never very far from beaches, Siesta Key #1 Beach, grocery stores or a bottle of wine.

We would recommend this condo highly and plan to revisit. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Thank you,

Siesta Key Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé and I stayed at this condo with another couple for 6 days. The condo itself was absolutely beautiful (clean, cozy, and perfectly decorated with a "beachy" theme) but the backyard view of the bay was my favourite part! We were able to walk right out onto the pier every morning and enjoy a cup of coffee while watching dolphins swim by, it was surreal and absolutely gorgeous! The four of us spent hours every day on the amazing white sand beach, which was walking-distance (about 10 minutes) from the condo. Although we did most of the cooking ourselves (the condo had great kitchen appliances and a community BBQ in the backyard) we also went out to eat one night in St. Armand's Circle (which is absolutely gorgeous at night) and to a couple of bars in Siesta Key Village (there's a free taxi service that brought us!). Overall, we had an amazing stay at this condo. You can tell that the owners really take pride in their property, and I would absolutely recommend this beach condo to anyone looking to escape to some warm weather, amazing views, and a place to make some great memories! We can't wait to book our next trip here!!
