  • The perfect location, community, and owner. Never equaled in my 20 years of renting in Sarasota.

    "We have been vacation renting in various places in Sarasota for 20 years - sometimes for a week or two, sometimes up to 3 months. 207 Whispering Sands Drive is by far the most attractive, comfortable, trouble-free, friendly, and well-located place - by a very wide margin. Not only does it come with a car, which frees my wife to do her own thing without worrying about me, it comes with a beautiful private beach (3 minute walk in the community), 2 heated pools (1 and 3 minute walks), monthly cocktail parties, a neighborhood bridge game, and, best of all, the friendliest people you will ever meet. Almost as important to us, it is also a 1-minute walk from Siesta Village, where there are always several bands playing at 6-8 bars, 6-8 restaurants, and a lot of other nightlife. In contrast, Whispering Sands is a quiet, safe community with all the attractions of the Village just outside its entrance. The first among the friendly people of Whispering Sands is Merrill, your landlord, who is truly a nice guy, and a very accommodating one for any small problems. For example, the vacuum cleaner wasn't working well this year, so he simply asked me to go buy one and said he would reimburse for it - which he did. His check arrived 2 days later! Amazing service. The villa has clearly been furnished and cared for lovingly. All the little things are just as you would do at home if you had the time and money. The two-car garage is spotless and has a finished floor - not just concrete. The floors and showers are not tile - they are travertine marble, a beautiful touch. The TV is a 60" beauty. The towels are thick, the sheets are smooth, everything is in good order and spotless. This is not a place for rowdy spring-break vacationers, or anyone close to that. Whispering Sands is quiet and gentile, for 55 year-olds and up. There are no smoking and no pets. You must rent for at least two months and you will be required to have a background check by the Whispering Sands administration. Merrill will treat you like like one of the family, and will expect you to take care of his home with equal care. If you can do that, you will not find a better rental venue on Siesta Key, maybe anywhere! The only reason that I am letting you in on this jewel of a secret is that my wife and I have decided, after all these years, to finally buy our own slice of heaven - a similar vill"

  • Very Cozy and Steps away from the Beach

    "We stayed four days in the unit. The unit was clean and stocked with necessary toiletries ,bath towels, cookware, flatware, and serve ware. The unit has cable TV. We enjoyed our stay in the unit. The beach was steps away. The check in was easy. The concierge desk provided us with the best places to eat. The Siesta Key village is adorable. The outlet mall in Ellenton, FL is 25 minutes away. We did not encounter any big issues. Some of the downsides were people were not that friendly around town, we thought it was because of our color, but that it the way some of people are. The king size bed was a firm mattress, we prefer more of a softer mattress. We did not get a good night sleep on the mattress. The comforters need to be replaced. They are bit itchy. Overall we enjoyed our stay."

  • Everything we were looking for!!

    "My wife and I were just awe-struck when we entered the condo and noticed the great furnishing inside and upon opening the curtains there is just this great view with palm trees, the pool area, large deck by the beach and the gulf. Siesta Dunes staff is very friendly and their grounds are just like a postcard, we highly recommend renting this condo as you will not want to leave."

  • Nice

    "The condo is very well appointed with high end furnishings and decorations. The location is beautiful with a view of the ocean and sunset and towards the quiet side of the island. Convenient laundry facilities, parking, elevator, and condo appointments. Well taken care of pool. Mixture of residents and renters. Beautiful condo and nice location."
