We're lifelong Brooklyn residents, married for 43 years, and we spent many summers exploring Florida's two coasts for our dream retirement home. We searched for the perfect beach with a delightfully casual community. When we first arrived on Siesta Key, we knew it was what we were searching for!
We spent five winters renting at Our House at the Beach and finally decided we had to own a condo here. We now spend time here during each Fall and Winter, enjoying the fabulous beach, the other community residents, the great Siesta Village and the many other Sarasota area attractions.
When we decided to buy, we chose a quiet upstairs unit away from the hustle and bustle of the very lively Beach Road. Our main balcony has a sunny Southern exposure, facing the lake, with our tables and chairs making it perfect for enjoying an afternoon Margarita after a day on the beach! Having our own garage enables us to store all our beach supplies without cluttering our condo. All this is here for you to use and enjoy just as it's here for us to use and enjoy!
Only a ten minute drive to downtown Sarasota with its culture, dining and shopping opportunities. Myakka River State Park is 25 miles away, with hiking, biking, kayaking, wildlife viewing, camping. Disneyland and nearby theme parks are a 2 hour drive away.
