Overview

Siesta Key Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

House of the Sun is located directly on Crescent Beach, consistently ranked as #1 beach in the world! It is known for it's flour white soft sand, exclusive to Siesta Key. There is almost 3 miles of continuous beach to walk, run and explore.

This is a great place for FAMILIES and retired travelers as it is on the quiet end of the beach and does not attract the 'spring break crazies'. Conveniently located--walking distance--to restaurants, drug store, ice cream, gift shops, grocery store, 7Eleven, sports rentals, fishing charters, boat rentals, parasailing and much more!

This unit has leather furniture with a love seat and a pull out queen sleeper sofa and a separate recliner. The living room also boasts a plasma TV with cable and a DVD/VHS player. A variety of movies are provided. Relax in the comfort of your living area while enjoying the view out the double sliding doors. Balcony provides view of beach and gulf and is a great place to enjoy a meal or a beverage. There is a drying rack for your swim suits and towels.

The master bedroom features a king size bed, 2 extra large closets, a sitting area, cable TV, dresser, chest of drawers, a large vanity area and a newly remodeled comfort accessible bath and shower.

The 2nd bedroom has two twin beds, a large closet, a dresser, chest of drawers and cable TV. The second bath has a tub and shower and has recently been remodeled.

Kitchen is fully furnished with coffee maker, dishwasher, toaster, microwave and ice maker. There is also a washer and dryer for renter's use in the unit. Board games, books, cards, pool and beach toys are provided in this unit.

Overall this unit is very spacious--you will not feel like you are crammed into a small hotel unit or townhouse condo.

The condo complex has free Wi-Fi throughout. The complex also has an incredible two-tier sun deck on the 4th and 5th floors with astounding views of the sunset. Lounge chairs, tables and chairs are provided throughout including the sun deck, pool area, patio/grill area, and beach. The tennis court is located on the beach side right next to the pool and is free for renters and guests. A poolside game room has ping-pong, foosball, air hockey and a variety of video games. There is covered parking, elevators and inside entrances to your unit.

You will LOVE it here and want to return again and again. This is paradise.

Please note: Rentals of less than 7 nights can only be reserved less than 30 days in advance, unless there is a shorter gap in the rental calendar between longer rentals.

About Mary Johnson

We live in Wisconsin and love to run, bike, swim, and travel. We hope to end up here when we retire. I am married with 2 teenage children. I dragged my husband here with me when we first starting dating. Now he loves it too!

Why Mary Johnson chose Siesta Key

I have come to Siesta Key with my family since I was born. LOVE LOVE LOVE it here. I have traveled all over the country and internationally. Siesta Key is an awesome place for relaxing vacations and outdoor activities. Great place for families and little kids--safe and quiet. Not a crazy crowded spring break place.

What makes this condo unique

House of the Sun cannot be beat for location and amenities. The beach is unmatched in beauty. I love being able to walk to restaurants and stores. (My favorite restaurant in the whole world is across the street--'Captain Curt's') I also love going for a walk or run on the beach in the early morning and seeing the dolphins and wide variety of birds, and picking up shells. Then coming back and planting myself on the beach or on the sun deck for an afternoon of total relaxation.

Christmas Break 2014

  • 4 of 5

My family really enjoyed our stay at House of the Sun. This was our first visit and we'd return in a heartbeat. The beach was fantastic, ideal for long walks, swimming and sunning and family games. Very family-friendly, and felt perfectly safe even in the late evening with just a few people around. The area is very quiet after dark, which may be important to families craving a low-key spot. There's a couple of popular bars/restaurants with patios across the street from the complex that play music but we couldn't hear it inside the condominium. There's a grocery store conveniently located across the street, as well as a pharmacy, and some other shops.

The condo was clean and comfortable. The king bed in the master was comfortable for us, while our tall teen son was a little less comfortable in a twin bed in the second bedroom. Having a washer/dryer in the unit let us travel light for the week. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals, and was well-stocked with dish soap and even coffee filters.

The office staff are very responsive, and solved a couple of minor concerns we had within minutes. We arrived after the office had closed on Saturday, and getting our keys from the lockbox was no problem. Though it wasn't hot while we were there, I'm sure the covered parking is appreciated by guests visiting in the warmer months. The pool was spotlessly clean and comfortably warm for swimming.

Wonderful family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful home away from home! Husband and I from Arizona along with family from Indiana enjoyed relaxing, stress free vacation together! Condo had everything we needed and then some....especially the much needed beach umbrella! This was our first visit to Siesta Key and we hope to make it an annual visit!

Spring Break 2014

  • 5 of 5

Oh my gosh!! What a beautiful place!!! We had SUCH a nice time, & I would go back in a heart beat!

First, LOVE the location!

Second, LOVE the design/architect of the building! How smart…everyone has a sort of private balcony, and some sort of view. The hallway with inside condo entrances made me feel VERY safe, and safe for the kids too!

Next, LOVE the 4th & 5th floor outdoor decks. GREAT place to gather!

I could go on & on, but truth is, as a mom, I want safe, clean, and homey & I got all the above at House of Sun! Management was great: courteous, friendly & helpful.

Your place was very nicely updated and decorated. LOVE the new carpet throughout, and new kitchen appliances!!! (I know there is always more you could update, but can’t we all??? – it was perfect!)

Thank you again for a great experience & wonderful family memories!!

I already have recommended you to friends.

Lovely Beach Front Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay at House of Sun. Spotlessly clean. New carpeting throughout. Everything we needed was available in our apartment: Beach towels, chairs, umbrellas, beach games. Our kids had a blast on the beach-side tennis court. Lounge chairs were always available on the beach. During rain our kids loved playing in the game room. Security was the biggest positive. My daughter locked us out of apartment & security was available to open our door within 5 minutes. Rooftop was a bit + for watching sunsets. Loved our stay. We will definitely stay again.

Update Please

  • 2 of 5

OMG this place is in need of a update. The rusty refrigerator and dated furniture should go. The carpet is terribly stained and gross. The washer and dryer and 120v only and it can take 2 hours to dry 1 very small load of laundry.

Notice owner only supplies 1-2 photos of interior of condo. This condo has not been updated since the 1980's and very few at HOS have been.
