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!

2nd time staying at Happy Clam!

  • 5 of 5

Another great week at the Happy Clam. If you are on the fence about renting this place, jump off and just do it. We love that we are able to walk to town. But more then anything we are "beach bums" and love the easy walk to the beach. Happy Clam has everything you need plus it is beautifully decorated. Sharen the owner is super easy to work with if you have any questions. Just all around a great place to stay and relax. Thanks again Sharen & Charlie for sharing your villa in Siesta Key. Melanie

Happy Clam Happy Customer

  • 5 of 5

The Happy Clam exceeded our expectations. We have stayed at many VRbO on siesta key and this one is by far the best. The unit is very clean and has high end amenities that you will not find in any other rentals. Sharon and Charlie we very responsive and so sweet. Our son got sick during the vacation and they did everything they could to make sure we still enjoyed our time. The location is perfect walking distance to beach and restaurants. We will definitely be back!
