We are middle school teachers for over 30 years and still smiling! Laurie was born in Wisconsin, and was raised in Orlando and has been in Sarasota since 1977. Tim is a Georgia boy who attended Manatee High and has been in Sarasota since 1969.

Tim Akin purchased this condo in 2004

Our condo gives us the joy of having friends and family share the water amenities of beautiful Sarasota.

Being able to enjoy our boat and kayak is pure 'recess' for us. As we drive over the bridge from our Osprey home, we truly feel we've entered a tropical getaway, just 20 minutes from our everyday lives.

Rented Tim and Laurie's condo for the first time last week and loved every minute of it. The combination of great weather and the privacy of Turtle Beach made for a great vacation. Accomodations were as we expected and the privacy and beauty of the location made for a wonderful week in Florida.
Neighhbors were friendly and weather combined with time of year made for a most enjoyable experience.

However did we miss this place on our previous numerous visits to Siesta Key!, We couldn't ask for anything more in the condo....everything was so thought out that we wanted for nothing.....books,DVD s ,games. The decor was just lovely and we had loads of pots and pans etc. Hairdryers, curling tongs also were provided for our use and the whole place was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. We spent lots of time fishing from the deck at the end of the garden and saw every day manatees and lots of fish. My husband caught Jack Crevalle, Sheepshead,Catfish, Flounder, Ladyfish and Snapper on a daily basis while I just sat in the sun reading. Absolute heaven .We ate at Walts Fish Restaurant as we knew it from previous visits....Hog grouper and Scamp are our favourites. Very sorry to leave but will now have a place to return to as we come often to Siesta Key. We left our fishing rods,etc for next visitor. Only downside for me personally was that the pool is not heated and it was too cold to swim. See you next year. Tony and Pat Williams . Lichfield. England.

Great Place for our vaccation!

We loved the condo and enjoyed our stay very much, it felt like home! It had everything you want and more, we didn't miss anything. Great with all things for the beach, such as umbrella, beachchairs and cooler.
The location was perfect, the neighborhood was quite and peacefull.
It was a short walk to the beach and if you want to visit Siesta Key Beach it took only a few minutes to drive.
The pool was great, it felt like it was our own because there was not so many other guests on our stay.
We would definitily recommend this condo for a great vaccation!

Great spot for our Family Vacation

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your condo. It was the perfect size and configuration for our family (mom, dad, 2 children, ages 10 & 8). We were able to walk to the beach and often did so for sunrise and sunset. The kids also loved sitting on the dock watching the resident heron and other birds.

The condo was clean with all the amenities you would need for a beach vacation. (beach chairs/mats/buckets/shovels/cooler/umbrella) A nice welcome letter and binder with local information was on the table upon arrival, as well as a nice bouquet of fresh flowers. We were able to walk to the Turtle Beach Pub for dinner on a couple of occasions which was nice. We also got some supplies at the local grocery store and the pharmacy. Between those two places, you would never need to leave Siesta Key if you didn't want.

If you do want to leave Siesta Key, you are only 2o minutes or so from Venice (where to look for shark teeth....we found over 200) as well as Myakka State Park, which is a great place to see gators!

The owners very easy to work with, we had absolutely no issues while there! Would certainly want to stay here again!

My only suggestion would be a travel mug with lid for coffee for my AM walk to beach :)

thanks again for everything Tim!

Kim & family
