Our family has been coming to Siesta Key for over 35 years. It's the only one with a private patio, approximately 75 feet from Siesta Key Beach.
Desmond purchased this Condo in 2010
Why Desmond chose Siesta Key
We like Siesta Key because the people are warm and friendly. The village is relaxing and fun for all ages. The sand is super white quartz sand, that can only be found in the two other places around the world. The beach is easy and fun to walk with a partner, friend or family member. The Gulf and Bay Club is a premier complex on the key with 24 hour security guards and amenities like gym, tennis, basketball, shuffleboard, 3 large heated pools, outdoor grilling cabanas and more. It's very relaxing!
What makes this Condo unique
We love the fact that the unit is on the ground floor so no more hauling groceries or luggage up and down the stairs or in and out of the elevators. The size is totally awesome. It has a 180 degree view of the beach and pool due to the large wrap around lanai. There aren't very many 3 bedroom condo's available for rent in Gulf & Bay so this is a real find! The private "walk out" patio is right outside your door and approx 75 feet from the beach. If you don't want to go out to the beach, you can just sit out on the patio and enjoy the view without even leaving your condo! Great for young families with babies that need to nap or even seniors who just can't get around very well anymore. Many have said that this condo is the premier unit in all of Gulf & Bay!

Absolutely perfect for a family vacation
Amazing set up in the perfect location. We split a one month rental with other family members - each family taking a week - wish we could have stayed for the entire month. The unit is directly on beautiful Siesta Key beach and just a few steps away from the pool which is we’ll appointed with lounges and umbrellas. The unit is perfectly furnished and all needs, from kitchen utensils to beach toys, are provided. We truly enjoyed our nights sitting in the enclosed porch playing board games with the kids while watching the amazing sunsets. Just minutes to the village, we enjoyed a few wonderful meals at some of the great local restaurants. Not to be understated is the personal touch of the owners who are fantastic and ensured our time was better than advertised - many thanks
Best location, best owners, best hospitality we have ever seen!
We rented this condo for a little over 30 days and have never experienced a more accommodating owner when renting on vacation. They made sure we had everything we needed and checked in periodically(via text) to see if everything was ok. They pay close attention to detail and make you feel very comfortable while staying in their condo, which feels more like a home. The lanai is so peaceful and has beautiful views of the gulf from every angle. All of the furniture is comfortable. There is a huge yard out front that is perfect for throwing a ball or playing tag. The pictures online don’t do this condo justice because of the comfortability and peacefulness you feel while staying there. They have plenty of beach towels, beach chairs, beach toys and umbrellas. Making meals at night was a breeze bc of how well maintained and stocked the kitchen is. We were in awe at how gracious the Martello’s were and we will absolutely make this a yearly visit!!!
Thank you so much!!!
Wonderful condo, Wonderful owner, Wonderful beach!!!!!
We have been going to Siesta Key for about 30 years. This is our first stay at The Gulf and Bay Club. This condo was perfect for our family spring break. You can not beat the view and location. The wrap around porch is amazing. It is the only unit in the complex with a patio. You have a reserved parking spot right by your front door. You are steps away from the beach, pool and grill area. The trash in conveniently located down the hall and there is an exercise room in the building. The complex is very large and gated. Everything we wanted was right by our condo!
The owner (Desmond) was wonderful to work with! I texted him once during our stay with a question and he responded within minutes. He also checked with us to make sure our stay was satisfactory and he was enjoyable to speak with.
I have never stayed in a unit that was so "well stocked" . This unit seriously had everything you need- plenty of beach towels, sun tent, chairs, umbrellas, toys, cleaning supplies, laundry supplies, paper products, spices, kitchen tools, bath towels.....
I highly recommend this property and working with this owner. It is a piece of heaven on a wonderful beach! We hope to return for many more vacations.
This was the best unit in a great resort (on the ground floor and the only one with a patio with direct access to the beach). It is very well equipped with everything needed for a memorable 3 generation family holiday , from beach towels and toys to sports equipment, games, TVs in each bedroom etc.
The resort main pool is close and fantastic, with an irregular shape that allowed for lap swimming (about 40 yards long)! and wings off to the side with lots of space for floating and kids to play.
Our hosts were welcoming and accommodating and I would recommend this place anytime except when my family would next like to be here for a holiday!
So glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for the kind words.
You may never want to leave, we didn't.
The spectacular view framed by a beautiful lanai kept us warm even on the days too cold for beach time. We often ate in because leaving the condo was less attractive than almost any restaurant seating, and the kitchen was well stocked for family meals. Lovely gas grills and food prep stations, along with an almost brand new covered picnic tables were just steps away from our beachfront private patio. For our family of six, four children living in three different cities, this condo created the perfect family time gathering place. We watched the sunset together every night from our comfortable, very own happy hour table.
Gulf and Bay grounds are perfectly maintained. The pools were clean and the beach always ready for our enjoyment. Work out rooms were easy to access and enjoy. The secure gated access was friendly and efficient. We were even offered rides on golf carts within the community. It is easily one of the most attractive properties on Siesta Key.
We regularly rent VRBO, this owner was the absolutely best and most accommodating property owner we have met. Questions were answered immediately, check in and and check out policies were simple and seamless.
If you are going to Siesta Key, need 3 bedrooms, and want the best view on the key rent this property.
This spot makes it so easy to do nothing but relax & enjoy your time away.
Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property in every way. The proximity to the perfect white sand beach/crystalline blue water, unreal sunsets, grilling area, pools all literally within feet of this ground level unit. The owners couldn't be more helpful w/ any questions & all info was very clear/readily available to understand about the unit and G&B Club. My wife & I were thoroughly impressed not only w/ how clean everything was at the unit & how well equipped but the entire grounds and people in general we came in contact with were top notch. Bed & couches & even beach chairs on patio very comfortable. A real vacation. One that adults & kids will enjoy without having to plan a thing. Definitely would do again. No one wanted to leave.
The condo is located approximately a mile from Siesta Key Village where there is shopping and restaurants. You can walk there in about 15 mins or drive in 5 mins. They also have Uber or Taxi's. Fun places to dine are the Daiquiri Deck, Old Salty Dog, Capt Curt's, Tiki Bar or SK Oyster Bar to mention a few. Flavio's is great Italian cuisine and stone oven pizza. The village is a very laid back and fun. Getting ice cream at the Big Olaf in the Village is a must! Go shopping at the Beach Bazaar. JoTo' s for a group habatchi dinner is a favorite. It's like a Bennihanna's. There is fun for all ages!!
