About the property

Breath-taking bayside view from your lanai, 3-minute stroll to a private beach

Step out the back door of your ground floor apartment and in seconds you're standing on a boating and fishing dock, surrounded by lush tropical foliage. This breathtakingly beautiful two bedroom, 1½ bath unit is located in Midnight Cove, one of the best complexes on Siesta Key. Since Midnight Cove has buildings on the Gulf as well as Bay side of Midnight Pass Road, you have a private beach access and access to all the amenities on both sides of the island, which include a marina, two tennis courts, two heated pools, beach chairs, lounges, and umbrellas. The condominium is located on Bay side of the island, just across the street from the world-famous Siesta Beach, which has powdery white quartz sand (it doesn't get hot on your feet). Siesta Key Beach was declared the 'best beach in the USA' by Dr. Beach in 2011. Your bayside apartment has a view of the canal and boat dock which is bordered by lush mangroves. It's a tropical ambiance unmatched by any other condominium!

The highlight of this luxurious and spacious apartment is its immense screened lanai off the living room with a view of the bay and tropical mangroves. The living room, furnished in Florida style, has a pull-out sofa, cable TV, DVD, VCR. The master has a king size bed and TV, and the master bath has a tub-shower combo. The second bedroom has two twin size beds and TV with a half bath right off the bedroom. The kitchen is totally equipped, including frig with icemaker, dishwater, and microwave. A washer-dryer combo has just been installed in the apartment. The Siesta Cove complex stretches over 11 acres of lush tropical greenery to the serene waters of the Intercoastal Waterway.

The complex has two heated pools, two tennis courts, marina and boat dock, basketball hoop, and, most importantly, your own private beach access on a private beach. No need to get in your car, as two blocks away there is a convenience grocery store, drug store, post office, liquor store, marina, and an assortment of shops and restaurants. Siesta Key Village is a mile down on the north end of the island and offers many quaint shops, restaurants and nightly entertainment. It's a 'must' to explore the art and culture of downtown Sarasota: The historical grounds of the Ringling Museum on Sarasota Bay, the posh shops of St. Armands Circle, the historical Asolo Theater, and the world- renowned Van Wezel Concert Hall featuring the Florida West Coast Symphony. You are 25 minutes away from Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport, featuring direct flights from New York and other major cities, and 60 miles from Tampa International Airport. Free DSL internet access: Bring your laptop!

Owner's Response: Thanks, Dan. I see you enjoyed the tennis court and left us some tennis balls. And you left the place so clean, it looks like no one was ever there!

Very nice unit

The location is great, only a few minutes walk to the beach. Beach chairs and umbrellas are provided on the beach so you don’t have to lug them around. The unit is very clean

Midnight Cove Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Two of my sons and I stayed at Midnight cove 713 last week and had a great time. The property is well maintained and has everything u need. It is a great home base as you spend days on the boat or the beach then nights out at the nearby restaurants and bars. Everything is within walking distance including a food market. We grilled the fish we caught right outside the condo. The first floor condo is great as u can walk right out the back door to the boat dock or the pool. I would recommend this unit for a family or a couple. Lionel is great to work with and he is right there if u need him.

Satisfied visitor.

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay here at Midnight Cove. The property's beautiful and everyone was very friendly. The pool and other facilities were very clean and up to date. We had a problem with the AC but the owner took care of it quickly and it wasn't a problem. The condo was equipped with everything we needed and the beach was right across the street. Very nice! We will definitely be back!
