Siesta Key Condo Rental Photos and Description

2012 modernized Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, No Smoking or Pets,

Our Condo is on beautiful Turtle Beach at the southern and most private end of Siesta Key directly on the Gulf of Mexico. When we say directly, we mean directly and not merely a Gulf “View” or a long car ride or a long walk to the Gulf. We call it “Paradise” and you could not choose a nicer location. Siesta Key is 7-8 miles long. Siesta Key used to terminate at Blind Pass just south Fisherman’s Cove as Blind Pass separated Casey Key from Siesta Key. However, at some time, someone filled in Blind Pass so you can actually walk (no road) across the Blind Pass area now from Siesta Key onto Casey Key. Our Condo is on the top floor (3rd floor, we are not a high rise), so no one can be above you and the views of the beach and the Gulf are terrific from our Lanai. We are in close proximity to the elevator/stairs which provides the entry from the parking lot (exclusive assigned parking space) and the entry to the beach and we are a short walk to the heated pool.

Our HOA and our insurance require minimum 7 day rentals. Our guest rentals commence at 4:00 PM on the beginning Saturday and conclude at 9:00 AM on the departing Saturday and we cannot rent for partial weeks. In order to maintain the highest standards for our Condo, we do not permit smoking or pets in our Condo.

We bought our Condo in April of 2012 because we believe it has the most unique setting anywhere with the Gulf of Mexico on one side and Blind Pass Lagoon and the entrance to the Inland Waterway on the other side. Almost nobody has water on both sides. Turtle Beach is fairly narrow which makes the Fisherman’s Cove condos the closest to the Gulf and permits our guests to actually listen to the surf from open windows. The two buildings in the Fisherman’s Cove Condos were originally built in 1968-9.

Most condos have not:

1. Been completely modernized with new appliances;

2. Provide their own washer and dryer;

3. Offer HD-TV;

4. Provide beach towels for guests; and

5. Provide private and exclusive Comcast WIFI.

During 2012, we completed a major renovation of our Condo to a standard suitable for us to make it our ultimate retirement home. Our living room has new tile floors, dining for 4, a leather couch and easy chair, with a wall unit containing a 40” HDTV with a blu-ray player and stereo/mp3 players. Our living room leads to a beautiful tiled lanai with a modern panoramic window on the Gulf, which also has dining for 4. Our new kitchen has new wood cabinets and granite tops, new appliances (side by side refrigerator, icemaker, water filter, smooth top convection range with a warming drawer, dishwasher, disposal, spacemaker microwave) and a new tile floor. Our kitchen is fully stocked with equipment including a new drip coffee maker with a permanent filter, toaster oven and many other small appliances. We have a beautiful Master Bedroom with a king size bed and a large window directly on the Gulf with its own 33” HDTV and a DVD player adjoined by a newly renovated tiled private bathroom with a walk-in shower.

Adjoining our Master Bedroom is our walk-in closet in which is located our own stacked new LG Washer and Dryer so our guests do not have to use the shared coin laundry.

Our Guest Bedroom has 2 single beds with a 27” television adjoined by its own updated private bath with a walk-in shower. New carpet was installed in our bedrooms last April, which completed the replacement of all of the original flooring in our Condo.

We furnish our own quality linens with bath towels and beach towels for our guests. Housecleaning is only before arrival and after departure, but we provide our cleaning equipment for use by our guests in the interim.

We also provide an iron, ironing board, hair dryer and lots of other items for your use, including beach chairs and umbrellas and beach toys. Our HOA also provides boat slips on Blind Pass Lagoon and there is a boat rental facility in close proximity on Midnight Pass Road.

Our guests have free use of our exclusive Comcast cable WIFI which provides cable speed Internet service privately in our Condo instead of having the use the regular public network, which sometimes is unreliable and has limited bandwidth. We have wireless telephones in our Condo connected to Comcast.

You might also enjoy to read the many reviews by our guests on VRBO (Listing168135), all of which rate our Condo as 5 of 5.

In addition to the photos and information on VRBO, please look at our exclusive personal website at www.siestakeydoublewaterfrontcondo.com for more details and more photos, including our progressive photos of the spectacular sunset which happens every day. The photos of the beach are for illustrative purposes only and weather, tides, and natural beach erosion cause topography changes from time to time. There is also plenty of information on our website about the fabulous restaurants nearby.

We had a recent tenant who had a great time catching fish in the Gulf right in front of our Condo! We can provide some fishing equipment upon request.

As a result of our unique location and the important upgrades to our Condo, it is very popular, so advance booking is recommended. We are always receiving numerous inquiries for rentals, especially since we have published our new upgrades and photos internationally, and as a matter of fairness, our policy is to accept the first actual booking we receive for each weekly or monthly rental.

We live in Venice, only 30 minutes away so we personally manage our Condo rentals and we are personally available to assist all our guests. Your rental agreement will be directly with us as owners. To confirm a booking we need to have full contact information (names, addresses, telephone numbers, email, ages of children, etc.) for all occupants.

We require a $300 reservation deposit at the time of each booking. 50% of the rental fee (less the $300 deposit) is due 90 days in advance and 50% of the rental fee is due 30 days in advance. All payments are non-refundable, except as follows:

(i) If the reservation is cancelled by written notice received more than 90 days in advance of the commencement of the rental, then the $300 deposit will be refunded less a $100 cancellation fee and this Agreement will be terminated.

(ii) If there is a mandatory evacuation order by a governmental authority due to a hurricane or other natural disaster, then Tenant(s) will be entitled to a prorata refund of the rent paid.

We recommend that Tenant(s) purchase Trip Insurance, if coverage is desired.

Our direct Gulf front condo means spending your day on the beach, swimming, fishing, strolling the shoreline, collecting shells or watching the magnificent Siesta Key Dolphins (or local surf boarders!).

Enjoy the mesmerizing Gulf sunsets with a cocktail on our Lanai. In the morning watch the sun peek over the Intercoastal Waterway - right out your back door! A 5 minute walk to the marina for all of your 'beach' toy rentals - from boats and wave runners to kayaks and canoes! Fish from our docks - or arrange a fishing charter - it's all here! A quick stroll (no driving required!) and you can choose from either casual or fine dining!

Feel like some 'urban' flavor? Head to downtown Sarasota or historic Venice for a unique cultural experience including shopping, dining, live theater, the world-renowned Ringling Museum and Mote Aquarium. We have activities and events to meet everyone's vacation desires! Make this Siesta Key Gulf Front Condo yours - slow motion or fast moving - a perfect vacation spot.

About Marshall Happer

I am a retired sports business lawyer and my wife is a sports marketing executive. We have lived in Venice since 2005 and my wife operates her international sports marketing business from our home.

Marshall Happer purchased this condo in 2012

Why Marshall Happer chose Siesta Key

We bought our Condo as an investment and maybe a future home, because it has the most unique waterfront location we have found on the Gulf. Last summer, I counted just 50 steps from our building to the Gulf!

What makes this condo unique

Everything. This is one of the most unique locations anywhere since we have the Gulf in close proximity on the West and Blind Pass Lagoon on the East.

Most rental condos have not been renovated to modern standards and do not have new kitchens and appliances, washer-dryer and full HDTV with Blu-Ray DVD. We do!

Fish in the Gulf or in Blind Pass Lagoon. Boat slips are available.

Since we live only 25 minutes away from our Condo, we are available to help ensure our guests have a wonderful vacation at our Condo.

Great Condo

  • 5 of 5
We are so happy that we booked this condo. The Happers have thought of everything when they furnished and stocked their condo. They have every gadget you will need in the kitchen. They have a nice collection of beach supplies. They even have a drying rack for wet swimsuits and towels. Having a washer and drying in the condo was great and the key-less entry was so convenient. We thoroughly enjoyed being right on the beach. The view was outstanding! We were very pleased with how well maintained the condo was and also the entire Fisherman's Cove facility. We would highly recommend this condo to anyone wanting to stay in the Sarasota area.

Owner's Response: Brent and Lynnae and their two sons, aged 13 and 11, were a delight to have as our guests. Lynnae told us they had a great time snorkeling and searching for shark's teeth (our area is known as the Shark's Teeth capital of the world). She said they dined on their last day at the now famous "Made in Italy" restaurant in Historic Venice (Venice was founded in 1926 and has preserved its Northern Italian Renaissance Architecture and features lots of fine restaurants and shops). Historic Venice is a must see just as is Siesta Key, downtown Sarasota, Ringling Museum, Mote Marine, St. Armand's Circle on Long Boat Key and lots of other attractions.

We have been very pleased to the very high caliber of our guests that have come to us through VRBO like this very nice family.

Florida Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We took our three kids to Siesta Key and simply had a great time. The condo location, supplies, cleanliness, attention to detail and ease of access was perfect. Our kids are 6, 9 and 17 and there was something to do for all of them from being in the water to walking the beach to the local restaurants (the Turtle Bay Club is walking distance and it is a great beach restaurant), tennis, boating, etc. It really was a perfect week for everyone. What made it particularly easy was the fact that the condo had everything you need from beach equipment to a fully stocked kitchen. Even a pool for when the kids wanted to get off the beach. And of course there were television sets and DVD players but we frankly didn't use them much since we were so busy with everything else that there is to do. I highly recommend the condo, the overall location and a trip to Siesta Key. And if you are lucky, you might get the owner to give you his recipe for pickles because they are the best pickles I have ever eaten!

Owner's Response: This very athletic and delightful family from Boston told us they spent at least 4 hours a day right in the Gulf of Mexico. We loved having them as guests in our Condo at beautiful turtle beach.

Ideal vacation destination

  • 5 of 5
I've brought my family to this location for a number of years now and I can't say enough good things about this unit. The location can't be beat in terms of proximity to the beach, you are literally right on the sand. Being at the southern tip of Siesta Key, you are away from the crowds, and have your own private beach with plenty of shells, fish, dolphins and what sunsets! Easy to park, and just a short trip to all that the key has to offer make this an ideal vacation location. The unit itself has been updated with high end appliances, including a private laundry facility and all the trappings of a luxury apartment. A private WIFI network and granite counter-tops are just an example. The owners are kind, prompt and personable and have a keen eye for detail. They go out of their way to ensure your stay is the best it can be. They have equipped the unit with everything you need for a sensational vacation. There's no question we will be back to our favorite spot!

Owner's Response: As owners of our one investment property, it does not get any better than to have a returning guest have another wonderful vacation at our condo and receive another great review. We really enjoy having nice guests like Thom and his family. We hope they will be back soon.

Owner's Response: Tom and Janet were terrific guests and we were delighted to have them at our condo for their Reunion vacation. Janet told us that in addition to Siesta Key, they visited historic Venice, downtown Sarasota, St. Armand's Circle on Long Boat Key and Anna Marie. We are proud to receive this our 18th review with a 5 of 5 rating and it makes all of the hard work we do to provide the best quality accommodations worthwhile. Our condo is the closest condo to the Gulf of Mexico and every sunset on the Gulf is spectacular.
