The beaches of Siesta Key are world-renowned. The pure quartz, pulverized to a fine white powder, has a magical quality. There is no sand quite like Siesta's anywhere.

Beach Access 12 is located to the left as you leave Bay Oaks and is only a 10 minute walk (1/2 mile.) Not many people know about this. It is at the intersection of Stickney Point and Midnight Pass. It is less busy, yet still quaint and beautiful.

At the southern end of Siesta Key is Turtle Beach. The sand is a bit coarser and the beach drops off more dramatically, but that means the snorkeling and shelling is better. Turtle Beach has no lifeguards, but there’s free parking with picnic tables, a playground, showers and restrooms. It may not be as popular as Siesta Beach, but if you can’t find a parking space at Siesta Beach, Turtle Beach will have plenty available.

Johnny's Free Ride is a service that you can call to pick you up and drive you all over Siesta Key and takes TIPS ONLY. They are very reliable and a great source of transportation to bring you to the Village for dinner, drinks, and shopping, and not have to worry about driving home or getting a parking spot in the Village. They will also pick you up with your beach chairs and take you to the beautiful Siesta Beach, #1 Beach in the U.S. 2015, although there is also FREE parking there. It is located 1 mile from Bay Oaks.

Spacious condo on Siesta Key

  • 4 of 5

We rented this condo for a week on beautiful Siesta Key, FL. The two bedrooms are very spacious and convenient with in room bathrooms - like having two master suites. the living room and kitchen are spacious, more chairs for the kitchen would be helpful. The pool is nice and convenient to the condo. Beach access is not as convenient as it sounded on the VRBO site however. Otherwise, it is an easy 40 minute walk to the village and public transportation is very easy on the island.

Great place to stay!!

I went here with my parents this year and it was great! The location was close to town and the beaches, easy parking and great space. Loved the 2 level; private baths etc. Everything we could think of was already at the condo for chairs, linens etc. I would stay here again!!

The condo was very nice. It is in a good location and it was nice to have covered parking.

  • 3 of 5

Good size condo, with nice decorations and amenities. Beds and furniture were very comfortable. The discription of the did not state that it was on the second floor with no elevator. Also that there were stairs to the bedrooms. I have a handicap and the stairs made it difficult for me. The cable TV did not work in the main bedroom.

Owner's Response: Hi joe. Sorry you didn't know about the stairs. I figured it was obvious since the pictures of condo SHOW the stairs to the upstairs bedrooms and show the views of the condo to the pool, which is from the second floor. You never once mentioned a problem or that there was a handicap party in your group. The only contact we had from you was that you were VERY unhappy that VRBO took a security deposit from you ahead of time. Which is what every single person/company does prior to a stay. I'd like to stress that You never complained once you there and never notified me That there was a problem. Nor did you ever mention anything about anyone being handicap before , during or after booking. Until now ..... ALSO we had the property manager check the cable and It absolutely was working. So I'm not quite sure what you are talking about ? Again, never notified of this before , during or after stay. But it's working when checked after departure

The location of this property is ideal. Backs onto the inter-coastal and across the street from the beautiful Siesta Beach, The condo was clean, spacious and adequately equipped. The only thing is the furniture had shown its age and use. We felt that it should be changed.

We had a lovely time walking the beach, walking to the village which is only 40 minutes from the condo. The owner was very helpful and available for any questions we had. We would recommend this property to anyone visiting Siesta Key.
