"My family of two adults and one 8 year old spent a fabulous week in Donna's beautiful condo. We really enjoyed the convenient location to the beach, pool and parking. We specifically picked it because we knew there would be a beach fireworks display for July 4th and the location was perfect for viewing. One of the pluses for this lovely condo is the lanai that has a view of the beach, an exit to walk over to the beach and the table that works as a great place to eat. I don't think we ate indoors once while there...dining on the lanai was great, despite the heat, with the ceiling fan. It also held the beach buggy, beach toys, a great sand sifter, and beach umbrellas. All came in handy. I appreciated the drying stand/coat rack out there too for wet suits and towels.
The condo was absolutely immaculate and exactly as seen in the photos. There was plenty of storage space for our clothing and luggage, a well stocked kitchen, and a very convenient laundry room. The only thing we ended up having to add was paper plates and napkins, as I didn't want to take the owner's dishes outdoors, and laundry detergent. Donna even had a laundry basket in the closet that we could use. We used the pool almost every day, and found it to be clean and refreshing. We used the grills near the pool twice. We really enjoyed being able to make the condo our home base for a week at the beach. Siesta Key beach is just beautiful and despite the weird weather pattern the week we were there (extra humid, NO rain!) we had a blast. We spent one day at Venice Beach and used the sand sifter from the lanai to find shark teeth! We were able to easily walk the mile into the center of town in Siesta Key to shop and get ice cream. We even took advantage of the free shuttle service to get a ride back for fun. Siesta Key is a fun and friendly beach town! We can't wait to visit again! Thank you, Donna, for sharing your beautiful condo with us!"
