Just steps from the bay, our newly remodeled condo in a gated Key West-style community is the perfect destination for your Siesta Key vacation. With resort amenities and the ideal location for beach and bay access, Gulf and Bay Bayside is irresistible! Please note, there is a 1-week minimum stay.
Relax in the large 11 x 16-foot lanai just off the living room at Gulf and Bay Bayside. Covered for protection from the hottest midday sun, it is open on 3 sides, with balmy breezes and great views of a creek and the community tennis courts. We've placed a brand-new table and chairs here for al fresco dining, card tournaments, and laptop use. You have free WiFi at the condo, so bring your smartphone out here and update your social media while watching egrets and cranes stop by to visit the creek.
When it's time to go indoors, bask in the comfort of the spacious living area, with tiled flooring that feels so good on hot feet, brand-new leather love seat and couch (that unfolds into a queen-sized bed), and huge HDTV with cable and DVD player. Large windows and plenty of open space give this room great breath-ability -- and there's lots of space for your whole group to stretch out and get comfortable.
We mentioned al fresco dining out on the lanai, and the place to whip up those delicious meals is the fully appointed kitchen at Gulf and Bay Bayside. Even if you like to dine out during vacation (and Siesta Key has some absolutely terrific restaurants you must try!), you'll love bringing home the day's fresh catch and cooking it using the new stainless steel appliances in our kitchen. We have plenty of cookware, dishes, and glasses, too -- enough for you to make and serve a feast without bringing anything to the party but the groceries!
Dine at the sun-splashed round table in the corner of the kitchen, the handy breakfast bar dividing the kitchen from the living area (you can watch TV from there!), or on the lanai. There are plenty of spaces to entertain at Gulf and Bay Bayside, as well as to indulge your group's chosen activities, from board games to puzzles, computers to journaling!
The living and dining areas are well appointed, but the real showplace of our condo is the master suite. No matter how much fun you're having each day on Siesta Key, you'll feel a sneaky longing for this ultra-luxe, comfortable haven! It's a great place to recharge your batteries each night, featuring a king-sized bed, Papasan chair, big TV, and desk. Sunny yellow walls, soft lighting, big windows -- they all work together to create the perfect ambiance for a great night's sleep every time.
The en-suite bath is a pleasure as well. The powder room is separate, with 2 vanities and more counter space than you could ask for. There's a sleek new walk-in shower, plus a luxurious walk-in closet. Perfect for two people trying to get ready at the same time in the morning!
The 2nd bedroom is ideal for grandparents, children, or friends traveling with you. Two twin-sized beds face a large TV, with a giant window and cool tiled floor. This room shares a bathroom (with both tub and shower option) with the living area. And our utility room has a washer and dryer for your convenience -- no draping wet beach towels and swimsuits everywhere in the hope that they'll somehow dry out before the kids demand to go back in the water!
At Gulf and Bay Bayside, all the linens and towels you need for every bed and bath are provided, including those for the sleeper sofa. You'll find more than enough pillows and blankets to keep everyone snug and warm.
And should you tire of the glorious beaches and bay, the Guy and Bay community has plenty to keep you busy. Two heated swimming pools -- one for laps, one for family fun -- are within a short hop of our condo, and the tennis courts just outside our door are lighted and beautifully maintained. There is also a clubhouse with fitness center and sauna, a picnic area with gas grills, a fishing pier, and walking trails everywhere. The landscaping is gorgeous, with ponds and creeks abounding. You're going to have the vacation of your life!

Just as nice as the photo’s show!
Need’s 2 bikes with lock and baskets. They reimbursed us for 2 tennis rackets so that was nice. Good beds, sheets, pillow towels. Good internet and nice to have 3 TVs - one in each room. The price and fees were higher than the advertised price. But we were there for Christmas week. A damage deposit should not be kept since we did not damage anything.
The location was good, nice to be on Gr floor near pool and tennis courts. We never saw the gym room. We liked our view and all
The nice windows. Bikes would be nice addition since traffic is slow on the main road. You can bike to town - the trolly is nice but they need 6/ hr from 10-8 pm the town only has 3 or less. We liked the Oyster Bar, one day for lunch and one day for Happy Crustation Hour 3-6 pm. 7.50 dz. Enjoyed the Cottage Place and Daiquiri Bar for food. We went for a bike ride at Longboat key. Had lunch at Mar Vista. We toured the Aquarium and the St Armand’s circle. Took a nice free cab from dntn Seista key I left his card in the room he works for tips that was nice. We liked walking across to the beach for sunsets and took the short shell walk to our complexes pier. I’d give a 5 if this unit had good bikes, locks, baskets and had the tennis rackets in the garage. Nice kitchen & Comfy pretty couch. Cheers!
We stayed here for a week and loved it. The unit was close to everything and we went to the beach every day. We drove, parked and had a great time on the beach. Water was fantastic. Very pleased with our stay. Towels and wash cloths could do with a revamp but overall, We can't complain. Pool was close to the unit and my daughter enjoyed not having to go too far to swim.
Nice place to enjoy with family and friends
I love this place. We have had a nice time there. Really convenient and close to the beach. You can go on your car or just take a walk. Just one recomendation, the shower door's cleaning should be improved. Other than that we love that place. We are planning to come back next year. I will recomend this place without a doubt.
Great location and very cute condo
Totally enjoyed our stay. Very comfortable and clean condo. Kitchen had everything we needed to cook breakfast and lunches. Nice pools, close to beach, friendly neighbors. We will be back!!!! Thanks for sharing!
Everything was wonderful, clean and cozy.
Definitely will be coming back to this spot every year. My kids and husband loved it.
Good location, spacious and bright but needs improvements.
It's obvious the unit is a rental property. It needs attention. The master shower drips, towels and bedding are in need of replacement as well as some of the window blinds and the washer and dryer are extremely noisy. Also, there should be a newer beach cart or wagon for use to and from the beach and some games would enhance the experience.The landscaping outside lanai needs work. The condo description said something about a gym but we didn't find one. It's not on the beach and considering what we paid should have had these amenities.
