Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: My wife (Lori) and I have owned a condo on Siesta Key for over 25 years. She stumbled upon Siesta Key during her college years. She took a semester off and drove south with a friend for the winter. Together they planned to waitress and save enough money to go back to school the following year. She settled in Siesta Key, worked at a few local places and came back home that summer. She never forgot the beauty and tranquility of the Key. In 1988 we purchased our first condo on the key. We owned that condo just under 20 years and sold it to buy this condo at the House of the Sun. We love this area on the Key the best and we longed for the day we could own something in the House of the Sun. We hope you can stay in our condo and we have no doubt, you will fall in love with the Key and the House of the Sun as well.

Why the Owner Chose Siesta Key, FL, USA:
It has a Gulf view and it is completely updated. On top of that, it is walking distance to many local shops, a supermarket, restaurants, post office, bike and boat rentals, coffee shops and much more.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
It is directly on Crescent Beach, the #1 beach in the USA for the past few years. Enough Said!!
