About Jeff or Donna Laitsch

Our family loves to go to Florida to enjoy the sun, beach, swimming and all the golfing nearby.

Jeff or Donna Laitsch purchased this condo in 2002

Why Jeff or Donna Laitsch chose Siesta Key

Before we purchased our condo at 1364 Siesta Bayside Drive on Siesta Key we rented for many years at a variety of locations both on and off the beach. The Gulf and Bay Bayside just seemed more like home. It has a very quiet and safe neighborhood feeling. Our unit is located near the rear of the complex with a great view of the intracoastal waterway and very close to the large swimming pool. If you want to go to the beach and enjoy the sand, it's about a 600 yard walk from our front door. We have coolers and a beach cart available to make the walk easy.

What makes this condo unique

Just a perfect location. Close to the main pool with a great intracoastal view and a short walk to one of the worlds best beaches. We also have two tennis courts, grills and an excercise room.

Love SK!

  • 5 of 5

We go to SK every spring break and rent frequently at Bayside. It's a great location with beach access across the street. This condo fit our families perfectly with the 2 bedrooms for the adults (2 coupled) and the bunk room for the kids. The location is ideal being right across the street from one of the pools and a quick walk to the tennis courts. We love the tennis courts right next to the pools so the kids can swim while the adults play tennis. The view from the veranda of the bay was a plus. We had one issue with a bed but maintenance fixed it for us. Nice updated condo with a fully stocked kitchen. We will definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Sheryl, Glad you enjoyed the condo and had a great vacation. Sorry about the bed. Our property manager was able to get a new support brace from Haverty's and make the repair. Hope you come stay with us again-I'll have a bottle of wine waiting for you:)

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The listing description was accurate regarding the location. The photos accurately reflect the rentals appearance and amenities. This condo was very clean am well maintained. Very nice bedrooms with very nice bathrooms. Anytime the owner was very helpful. I would recommend this condo to friends. Short walk to the gorgeous beach. A plus were the two bikes. A beach cart, beach chairs, towels etc. were an added bonus. Fishing pier only 80 m from the condo. Great to catch fish.

The Captain Curt's Crab and Oyster bar on Siesta Key is funny.(Live musik or Karaoke). The outdoor grill near the swimming pool was not clean.

A great condo!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was clean, roomy and nice! It was located directly across from the pool which was a nice plus!!

To get to the beach access from the condo was an about 7 minute walk, which wasn't bad compared to trying to find parking at the public access which is always swamped and super busy.

The condo had a newly renovated kitchen which was really nice and a nice sunroom where we ate dinner.

Owner's Response: Thanks Debbie for the kind words and we're glad you had a good time. When we purchased the condo in 2002 the two deciding factors were the location near the main swimming pool and the views of the intracoastal water way. Since then we have remodeled the kitchen, bathrooms and purchased new furniture. Hope you have a great summer!

Dutch visitor July 2012

Beautifull architecture, canal only 100 m away, real holiday feeling. Swimming pool ok, but given the number of condo's even a bigger one would be more welcome. Not enough umbrella's at the swimming pool. Inside of our house a little old-fashioned, but maybe that is because of us being European...Great private beach, only crossing the street, then 200 metres. Unfortunately, one is not allowed to use the gym across the street at the Gulf Bay resort nor is one entitled to sun chairs...Strange to experience that THE nr 1 beach of the USA does not offer cafe's and restaurants... Pretty strange...or maybe European taste. One needs a car, although Sarasota can be reached by bus. Downtown is 1,5 mile walk.

Owner's Response: John, Thanks for your review. I too wish there was a café or restaurant on Siesta Key beach. Several years back, there was a quaint restaurant called the “Surf Rider” located on the beach which also had apartments. Reportedly, Betty Davis used to dine and lodge there while in town. There are quite a few quality restaurants on the island for dining including my favorite, “Ophelia’s On The Bay” which is awesome but somewhat pricey. Starting this week we are remodeling both bathrooms in our condo. The work is being done by a “European” who specializes in quality tile work. I think you will be pleasantly surprised on your next visit. I’m going down to check on the progress September 1st ,2012. Take Care-Jeff

Great place

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The condo was beautifully decorated and had everything our family of 5 needed at an affordable price. The beach chairs and umbrellas were an added bonus. The property was well maintained and our boys enjoyed the fishing dock. This was our first visit to Siesta Key and the beach was gorgeous. I would definitely recommend this place to others.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this condo in June 2012 and found it met our needs perfectly. The bedrooms are separated from each other, so it felt as if everyone had privacy. The condo was very clean and was stocked with everything we needed, other than paper products, food, etc. I was pleasantly surprised to find plenty of hangers in the closet, along with extra blankets and pillows. The beach is a little far but we needed the exercise anyway. The pool is perfect! It was very close to our unit and while we were there, it seemed as if it were our own private pool, as not many other people seemed to use it. We would definitely stay at this condo again!
