About the Property
Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)
You can hear the waves from your bedroom at night. The morning lights up the lush lagoon to the east of the condo. The golden afternoon sun brightens the living room and the master bedroom. As you sit on the balcony, the sunsets over the Gulf are so varied in color and intensity that you will never tire of watching.
Indulge yourself with two to twelve months of pure luxury! (sorry, no short-term rentals) Live on the beach while you remodel your home, write your novel, study the habits of nesting turtles or of the dolphins frolicking in the surf, or simply relax and meditate on the wonder of the beauty around you!
This second-floor unit lets you enjoy the feeling of being right on the beach, while having the security of a building with a key entry. Be as private or as sociable as you want. You can buzz your friends in at your convenience. Use the single flight of stairs when your goal is to stay fit. Or take the elevator for handicapped access or any time that it is more convenient. There is a heated pool a few steps from your door, right on the Gulf, or a second one at the clubhouse -- where you’ll also find other activities like movie nights, covered dish dinners and a weight room for your work-outs. The covered Tiki Hut with picnic table, grill and shower is set in the dunes north of the condo. A game of shuffleboard is just outside, or a game of pool is even closer -- a few doors down the hall in the community lounge, which overlooks the Gulf.
The large master bedroom overlooks the Gulf, with access to the water-front balcony and to a sitting area and walk-in closet, which adjoin the bath area. It is newly furnished with a king-sized bed, plush with pillows and 300-count sheets. The second bedroom, with its view of the lagoon, has twin beds. The living room, which, like the master bedroom, has sliding glass doors overlooking the Gulf, adjoins the dining area. You have expansive views from inside the dining and living areas and easy access to the balcony from either the bedroom or the living room. The kitchen has tract lighting, lots of cabinets and open counter space, and a window looking toward the lagoon.
On the Gulf side of your condo you will enjoy cool walks in the morning shade on the beach. On sunny afternoons, you can be in the surf or at the pool. You’ll see dolphins playing and pelicans swooping for fish up close. You can watch sailboats, fishing boats and, on the 4th of July, speed boat races. You’ll see spectacular sunsets, and the moon will shine into your bedroom at night. As an extra bonus, looking to the east out from your front door or out the window of the second bedroom, you'll see a verdant, tropical view with a lagoon, where you can watch ducks and cormorants fishing. You get double waterfront!
Celebrated for its powdery white sand*, nearby Siesta Key Public Beach offers recreational facilities, picnic sites, and life guards. If the tide is low, you can walk around the point at the south end of our beach and the whole length of Crescent Beach to the Point of Rocks 3.5 miles away. When the tide is high, the public beach is a quick walk, bike ride or drive of about one mile.
Just outside the Whispering Sands entrance is Siesta Village, a short stroll away. You will be close enough to enjoy the restaurants and pubs, the shops, the bands and the dancing. But you can simply slip back home for total peace and quiet.
* Siesta Key is recognized for its sand of pure quartz crystal. The beach here doesn't get as hot in the full sun as other beaches do; instead, it stays cool and silky feeling. Siesta Key has been rated one of the '10 best beaches for families' by TravelChannel and as the only Florida beach on its list of '10 best beaches for romance.' And you will often find that you can have this little stretch of the beach essentially to yourself!
To check out the spot from a satellite view, input 'Siesta Key, Sarasota' and focus in on the westernmost point of the island and the stretch of beach just south of that point. You will see the towers, the pool, and the wide open Gulf...

Additional information about rental rates
- Tax Rate 12%
The condo association requires a 2-month minimum and only allows two rentals per year. As a result, we always hope for rentals longer than two months, but can never consider shorter rentals.
The rent & taxes must be paid at least 3 months before arrival date. Check with owners about dates.
If you will be staying 4 or more months or if you are renting May thru November, ask about our low-season or long-term rates.
Note: When low-season rates are in effect, charges for utilities & basic cleaning will be added, whereas taxes, damages &/or excess cleaning are assessed in all cases.
A $1000 deposit is needed to hold a reservation, which becomes a damage deposit when rents are paid.
Owner's cancellation policy:
50% refund for cancellations more than 7 days before check-in date.
100% refund for cancellations more than 14 days before check-in date.
Don't forget your vacation protection! Get protected now
Adding our Vacation Protection services can make sure your getaway goes smoothly, no matter what. We offer Cancellation Protection and Damage Protection so you can truly relax.
The property's calendar has not been updated in over 8 months. You can contact the owner for availability or look for properties with confirmed availability
Within view of your porch, you can go Swimming, and View Wildlife (Pelicans, Herons, Egrets, Sea Gulls, Dolphins, and perhaps Sea Turtles nesting or Manatees mating). Use the on-site Swimming Pool, Grill and Tiki Hut, Fitness Center and Shuffleboard Courts. On the public section of Siesta Key's Crescent Beach, you can play Volleyball or Tennis, take your grandchildren to the Playground or join in the Sunday-night Drumming. In and around Sarasota, enjoy Golf, Gyms, and much more! See Mote Marine Aquarium, Selby Botanical Gardens, the Ringling Museums, or performances at the Van Wezel. Go Hiking, Biking or Kayaking at Myakka River State Park or Oscar Scherer Park, both nearby on the mainland. **Siesta Key was recently ranked by Travel Channel as the #2 beach in Florida, specifically based on the unique quality of its sand, and by Dr Beach as the #1 beach in the USA!**
Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: We are a semi-retired couple. That is, Mike is retired after 30 years with IRS and now has a little business through which he helps people who have tax-collection problems. AnnaMarie stayed home for many years with young children, then as a home-schooling mom. She is now working as a Vocational Counselor with Rehabilitation Services in Georgia. We hope to live on Siesta Key as soon as possible, but we have grandchildren in Georgia, so we haven't been able to pull ourselves away yet...
Why the Owner Chose Siesta Key, FL, USA:
This condo is our dream retirement spot. It is right on the Gulf, in the middle of a charming community that encourages healthy outdoor living. Sarasota is the perfect mix of culture and relaxation.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
There is never a time when the weather is not perfect. In the summer there is a constant sea breeze; in the winter the 'cold' days are hardly chilly by most standards. And the view from the condo is always spectacular!
