Property description



If you are looking for the perfect spot for a family vacation, to escape the cold and snow, or a quiet romantic getaway this is the place for you. Recently updated throughout, this 2 bedroom 2 bath condo sleeps 6 comfortably all in real beds. Just outside your door is Crescent Beach, consistently rated one of the top beaches in the world. Talk about convenient, just across the street are restaurants including Captain Curt's and it's award winning clam chowder, grocery, boutiques, pharmacy, and of course the Orange Octopus for that must have evening ice cream cone, all less than a 5 minute walk away.

The condo has been remodeled and redecorated throughout. Tastefully furnished in a 'beachy' theme, you will feel perfectly relaxed while letting you know you are on a great beach vacation. The living room seats 7 people comfortably with a new leather sofa & love seat and two leather swivel chairs. There is a 50" smart TV with DVD player and sound bar that allows you to stream music from almost any portable devise including your phone. The living room is open to the dining room which seats 8, perfect for entertaining friends and family lending a light airy feeling throughout. A fully equipped updated kitchen with new appliances include a Keurig coffee maker for that quick caffeine fix and a Ninja Professional Blender for a great smoothie anytime. A quick trip to Crescent Market (across the street) or Publix (less than a 10 minute drive away) to buy your essentials and you're set to enjoy. The master bedroom has a king size pillow top bed, flat screen TV, walk in closet and access to the private balcony. The master bath has a large tiled walk in shower and updated fixtures. The guest bedroom has both a queen and a double bed with pillow top mattresses, flat screen TV and walk in closet. The guest bathroom has a tiled tub/shower combination again with new fixtures. WiFi, cable television and ceiling fans throughout.

But the real attraction is the beach. Crescent Beach is a fine white powdery sand that feels more like baby powder than sand. The sand stays cool even on the hottest summer day. The beach stretches for over two miles, great for walking and jogging. Crystal clear water with a very gradual descent makes the gulf very inviting for swimming, playing or just floating on a raft. Tropical breezes off the Gulf makes it comfortable even on the hottest summer day. A short walk down the beach, less than ten minutes, you will come to the point of rocks. A great place for snorkeling, diving, shelling and an occasional manatee sighting. Back at the Sea Shell there are plenty of lounge chairs that you can take right to the beach or sit under a shaded tiki hut or the large cabana. There is a large outdoor grill available to use with prior reservations at the office. For the more adventuresome, parasailing, jet skis, boats, bicycles and more are available to rent all within walking distance.

Just an hour away from Tampa and Fort Myers and two hours away from Orlando Siesta Key is an ideal location for day trips. Sarasota itself offers many attractions including Mayakka River State Park, Jungle Gardens, Ringling Museum, Mote Marine Aquarium, St. Armand's Circle and more.

The Sea Shell is a medium size complex with 49 units. Your private parking space is just steps from the elevator and stairs. No long walks from your car or waiting on elevators. The friendly and knowledgeable office staff is on premise and ready to answer any of your questions and give you great advice about the area.

Whether building sand castles with your children or grandchildren, taking long romantic walks, or sipping your favorite cocktail while watching an incredible sunset, our condo is the perfect vacation getaway. Just pack you suntan lotion and you'll be ready to enjoy your slice of paradise. We hope you stay with us and come back often.

PLEASE NOTE THAT I HAVE ACCESS TO SEVERAL ADDITIONAL CONDOS IN OUR BUILDING. IF YOU ARE IN NEED OF MORE THAN ONE CONDO PLEASE LET ME KNOW AND I WILL BE HAPPY TO ASSIST YOU.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1980

About the owner: Our parents bought our unit in 1980. While we have been renting our unit for over 30 years we are new to VRBO as of September 2014. My sister and I along with our families have enjoyed Siesta Key for more times than we can count and have never grown tired of vacationing there. It is a great place for family vacations or for some quiet time alone with our spouses. When we get to the unit it always feels like home to us and I'm sure that once you stay here you will feel the same.

Why the Owner Chose Siesta Key, FL, USA:
Our parents came to Siesta Key once and were hooked. I remember picking them up at Cleveland Hopkins Airport on their return home and jokingly asking them what they brought me back from Florida. My mother broke out in a big grin and said 'a condo'. Later that year we took the kids out of school and came down with my parents to see just what they had fallen in love with. It only took us one day to find out why. Now we have the joy of watching our grandchildren discover all the treasures that their parents, our children, did many years ago. I also remember my oldest son looking at his grandfather a few years back and telling him that buying the condo was the best thing he ever did for his family.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
After vacationing here for over 30 years I can say that the best thing about the Sea Shell is it's location. The complex is not to small, not to large, on the beach yet within steps of almost anything you need or want. The unit has a warm, comfortable feel as soon as you open the front door. By the way did I forget to mention the beach.
