|Minimum Stay||28 nights|
Roll into the lap of luxury and enjoy a unit that’s still sparkling new. Siesta Key Gulf and Bay Club is known to be the finest long-stay resort in the area - and this newly renovated unit with a new air conditioning and heating system, Gulf and Bay Club 305C, trumps the competition. <br/><br/>Sleeping 6, the suite is warm and sunny all day long with gulf views from almost every room. Best enjoyed from the large lanai, you can spend long mornings perched above the Gulf and gorgeous surrounding vegetation. <br/><br/>The newly refurbished living room area includes not only large couch (cum queen-sized sleeper sofa) but choice of arm chairs, soft cream carpeting and a massive 46 inch LED TV but a corner office area as well. Enabling guests to make best use of the included high speed wireless Internet, any real-world commitments are tidily completed at this compact desk. <br/><br/>Each piece of furniture adds to the suite’s charm and character, including the ‘cottage chic’ entertainment stand in a happy shade of sea foam. The room is finished with tasteful seaside art and carvings of local bird life - you’ll be stealing these style tips for your own home. <br/><br/>A new dining set accommodates all 6 guests and white cushions on water hyacinth chairs look very smart. The table is spaced between the kitchen’s breakfast bar and living area - a perfect layout for both formal and informal family dining. <br/><br/>New stools at the kitchen counter seat eager (perhaps greedy) guests, while a lucky chef has a brand new gourmet kitchen in which to play. Granite counter tops, a double sink and top-of-the-line appliances are only the beginning. No detail in the unit has been spared from the 5-star treatment. Towards the back of the kitchen is a breakfast nook as well. <br/><br/>Step into your master suite and you’ll know you’re at the beach. Sunlight dances across the light walls, white antiqued furniture and king sized bed with new mattress and new linens. White accents, framed mirrors and complementary artwork finish this lovely space. Better still are your new flat-screen 37" LCD TV, direct lanai access, walk-in closets and roomy en suite bath. Oh my! <br/><br/>Bedroom two has a set of twin beds in sunny striped linens. Cream walls and a large window make it a very bright and sunny room. It has its own wall mounted 26" flat-screen TV and wall closet, too. <br/><br/>Both the en suite master bath and guest bath are newly refitted with custom hardware and tiles. In-suite laundry is provided - if you can be bothered between delicious beach and poolside commitments.<br/><br/>“The Best Sand Beach in America” (The Travel Channel, 2004). Siesta Beach is renowned for its breath-taking sunsets, easy-going waves and gorgeous, crystal white sand. The sand is 99% pure quartz, soft and cool on the feet.<br/><br/>Located on the 3rd floor(with an elevator) with views of the Gulf from almost every room, this beautifully new renovated and newly furnished 1445 square foot, ocean and gulf view Mediterranean style condominium is located at the Gulf & Bay Club Resort Condominiums in Siesta Key, Florida. Two small bridges connect to an inner island, where tiki umbrellas cool blissed-out vacationers. Within the lanai, a cozy wicker table set awaits happy hour and floor lamps allow the gathering to stretch into the night. <br/><br/>Swim a few refreshing morning laps in the designated lap pool and then enjoy the rest of the day beside one of two further heated pools. Six saunas ensure a private, relaxing and unhurried experience. Avid tennis players will love the organized play during the winter months (November to May), not that you’ll really notice the winter. Active types have the choice of basketball - and racquetball or a game of shuffleboard.
My name is Steve Milo and I stay in Vacation Rental Homes when I travel both domestically and abroad. I own several vacation rental homes and listen carefully to our guests and their feedback and then opened my company Vacation Rental Pros in 2006! Our greatest compliment is when our guests refer our web site to their friends and relatives. AND, now Vacation Rental Pros is managing over 825 properties in Ft Myers Beach, Orlando, St Augustine Beach, Daytona Beach, Palm Coast and Ponte Vedra Beach. Our guests and their great 'word of mouth' have helped us expand to over 825+ vacation rentals. We booked over 15,000 rentals and received over 5,000 guest reviews in 2014.
Although we enjoyed our stay at Gulf and Bay, the unit is in need of upgrading. We feel the unit was not professionally cleaned. The unit was dusted and floors washed, but the stove top and kitchen in general was not thoroughly cleaned.
Furniture is a little worn. One of the couches was broken. Water pressure in master bath was very weak. However we really enjoyed the place and the location. Would recommend something in the A or E Building from the 4th floors up.
This was an unusual situation due to exterior remodeling/maintenance during our 3 wk.stay. It was EXTREMELY loud & intrusive...more than expected. The unit/propety would have been 5 stars otherwise. The owner is updating the unit & has excellent taste. Loved the mini-library/movies in the master. The LR TV upgrade & channel selection were supurb. Would love to be at this property under normal circumstances.
We had a good time at G & B, the staff that we had contact with at G &B was extremely helpful and friendly. The only issue we had was with a defective dishwasher. We were never able to use the dishwasher till the last weel we were there, then it started to overheat and smell like burning plastic. I called the VRP contact who was helpful, and she alluded to the fact that the smae thing occured 3 months prior and the owner of the unit failed to repair or replace the unit. She also stated that she was very upset with him at the time and provided a $100 gift card to the renter who complained. So where is mine, I went 30 days without the convenience of a working dishwasher. Dont' want to sound cheap but..........
We really enjoyed our stay. The condo was very comfortable and well equipped. Looking forward to a return trip to this property.
We spent the month of April at Gulf & Bay and had a fabulous time. The location was perfect overlooking Siesta Key beach with private access to Crescent Beach. The Condo was spacious and in a very quiet position. The complex was well designed with 3 pools, BBQ's, a gym, clubhouse etc. The pictures and descriptions were 100% accurate. The location on Midnight Pass Rd was good as its a 30 min walk to Siesta Key Village ( along the beach ) and when its busy far easier to take the route over the North Bridge to leave Siesta. The South side is much busier. We had a very relaxing month and would highly recommend Vacation rentals. As we live in the UK correspondence and questions answered in a tinely manner were important to us. During our stay Christina the property manager was always available to answer questions and offer advice. Very professional and we will be coming back and using Vacation Rentals again.
