About the property

A refuge for peace, relaxation and memory making. Prime location, clean, and Fun

Absolutely, amazing condo in a perfect location! Welcome to Happy Clam! Attention to detail throughout, clean, and relaxing. Perfect in every way! This newly remodeled gem is 1 block from the pure white sands of Siesta Key Beach and 1/2 block from Siesta Key Village. Where the gulf waters meet the sand and the sand meets the Village.

Swim in a beautiful heated pool at the complex designated for guests only. It is rarely crowded and conveniently located directly behind the condo.

Happy Clam is small but spacious with a fully stocked kitchen, if you choose to cook. If cooking is too much work then you are a very short walk to nearly 20 restaurants in the Village where music and fun accompany some of the best fresh seafood, ethnic delights, and amazing ice cream.

And the Beach, it is a very short walk down the street from Happy Clam. Siesta Key Beach has just been rated again by "TripAdvisor" as the #1 beach in the USA and the #5 beach in the world. The Ultra-white 99% quartz sand is the best in the world. Never hot on your feet and silk-like in feel. Beach chairs, cart and umbrellas provided.

More fantastic restaurants a short drive away in Sarasota, just off the Key.

World-class shopping at St Armand's Circle, a quick 2O minutes away! It is an experience you will not want to miss. There is nothing like it!

Visit The Ringling of Ringling Circus fame. Sarasota has long been the winter home of the famous circus company. The Ringling facility includes eclectic collection of Baroque art, the Museum of the Circus, a thirty-room mansion, the historic Asolo theater from Venice, and some 60 acres of unparalleled gardens.

If you decide that you would like to visit Walt Disney World, Happy Clam is just 1 hour and 50 minutes away. You definitely can do it in a day trip!

Great Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Love this place! It is adorable, comfortable, updated and clean. It had all high end items you would need for a beach vacation. The kitchen had everything you could think of to make any meal:) There were even the little things you need available but usualy have to run out and pick up. Sharon was wonderful and very available:)

Wonderful condo in great location

  • 5 of 5

Happy Clam is the perfect condo, located between the beach and Siesta Key Village!

It's beautifully updated throughout, with nicely equipped kitchen, comfy bed and cozy living space. We enjoyed walks on the beach, beautiful sunsets and short 1/2 block to the village

for dining and shopping.

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We just loved Siesta Key! There was so much to do here. Even with the cooler weather we went to the Cinebistro, the fantastic Ringling Museum and we paid a visit to the South Florida Museum and saw the manatees eating. We would love to return. The home had everything that we needed and was very comfortable for the ten days we were there. It was a only a block away from the beach and so close to restaurants and shopping that we didn’t use the car for much of the time we were there. Thank you for a wonderful time!
