THE CLOSEST BEACHFRONT CONDO TO THE GULF OF MEXICO ON SIESTA KEY - AMAZING VIEW!

Siesta Key Condo Rental Photos and Description

Beach front and bay front with boat docks and piers. Spacious 2 bed / two bath.

We completed a very extensive 10-week remodel project in the late fall of 2013 - from the floor-to-ceiling sliding glass and screen panels on the lanai to new flat screen HD TV in the living room and on to the granite counters in the kitchen and tiled walk in shower in the master bath - virtually everything is new.

From our house in Kansas City, the closest beach is about 1,500 miles away. Due to this, when selecting a place to stay, we're not interested in being 'steps from the beach,' 'across from the beach,' or having what is often euphemistically described as a 'view of the beach.'

In our opinion, it simply makes no sense to stop 1,000 or even 500 feet short of our destination. This is why, after countless trips to Florida and an intense three year search for what we consider to be the perfect location, we chose to buy a third floor condo at Fisherman's Cove where we can watch manatees cruise and dolphins jump in the crystal waters that are less than a stone's throw from our lanai.

The 130 square foot lanai was completely renovated in 2013 with new floor to ceiling sliding glass panels, a picture window to the south and a custom made glass rail system that provides you with an unobstructed view of the beach and gulf. The screens slide too and allow for great sunset pictures. Some of our guests have said, 'sitting on the lanai is like being on the lido deck of a cruise ship.'

Fisherman's Cove is the only beachfront condo on Siesta Key where the Gulf of Mexico lays only a hundred feet or so from your lanai, and the bay inlet with boat docks and piers is about the same distance from your front door. This gives you the best of both worlds - magnificent sunsets and beautiful sunrises.

At the south end of Siesta Key you get away from the maddening crowds common to the northern end of the island. At the south end traffic moves smoothly, but with three good restaurants and two bars within a short walk and a quiet park that has a playground for kids and terrific picnic areas nearby, you may never use your car once you arrive.

Kayak rental and tours are also within easy walking distance as are boat rentals, Jet Ski rentals, fishing guides and other activities. If you bring your own boat or rent one during your stay, you are welcome to use any of the boat docks at Fisherman’s Cove free of charge.

Beyond the short walk to these activities, you'll find several golf courses within five miles and 92 total courses in the Sarasota area. There are also numerous tennis courts available and, of course, great shopping including the famed St. Armand's Circle.

Other must-see attractions include The Ringling Brothers Museum, The Sailor Circus, Mote Marine Laboratory & Aquarium, The Sarasota Opera House, Marie Selby Botanical Garden and The Sarasota Classic Car Museum. During the winter and early spring, be sure to visit the renovated Ed Smith stadium where the Baltimore Orioles practice and play ahead of the regular season. Be sure to also allocate time and budget for some of the best restaurants in the country.

While we enjoy the sporting activities, sightseeing and night life, our favorite ritual is decidedly more laid back. For us, it's all about the view, the sound of the waves and miles of open and uncrowded beaches that stretch without interruption for miles to both the north and south of the condo.

Walking the beach to the south you'll first pass through one of the few undeveloped areas you'll find on any of the barrier islands - it's just you, a cup of coffee, the birds and some fresh seashells that washed up during the night. As you walk further south you'll come across the very exclusive North Casey's Key community. Here mansions boarder the water and you get to walk the beach of the rich and famous.

Back at the condo you'll love the third floor direct view of the gulf and the sound of the waves as you drift off to sleep in a master bedroom that overlooks the gulf. Your guests will get to enjoy a wonderful sunrise over the bay from their bedroom in the morning.

The condo floor plan is spacious with large bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and a very large walk in closest for the master bedroom. However, you'll probably spend most of your time on the 130 square foot lanai that has floor to ceiling glass facing the Gulf.

For your convenience, there is an elevator and even carts you can use to move things between your vehicle and your room. There is free high speed broadband Internet access (wireless) as well as free cable and a condo phone for local calls. Please note - maid and linen services are free - there are no hidden charges.

Whether you are planning a romantic getaway or a family vacation, Fisherman's Cove is a great destination. Please email with any questions. It would be our pleasure to help you plan the ideal Siesta Key vacation.

Sherri and I have shared a passion for travel since we were married in 1975. No matter where we went in the world, including time on the beach was always a priority. We searched for three years to locate the perfect place on Florida's Gulf coast until finding Fisherman's Cove in 2012. For us, it has everything we were looking for and more.

If you walk to the north, you'll find a nice public beach area with shade, a playground and grills. Beyond that, you'll come across a few condos set back from the beach that rent by the month and private residences. About three miles later, you'll hit what we call point of rocks.

To the south, you'll find one condo that is set back from the beach, about a half dozen private residences and then a couple miles of pristine undeveloped land with beautiful beaches. Beyond that, you begin to see the private residences of North Casey's Key; one of the most exclusive areas on Florida's gulf coast barrier islands. There is no public beach access on North Casey's Key, but from Fisherman's Cove, it's yours for the walking. If you're particularly energetic, you can continue well over 12 miles until you hit the split between South Casey's Key and Venice.

Paul and Sherri McWilliams purchased this condo in 2012

Our requirements were simple - we wanted to be as close to the water's edge as possible so we could enjoy the waves lulling us to sleep and still have bay access with a boat dock. We wanted miles of uninterrupted beach to walk and most importantly for Sherri, an abundance of seashells to collect. We wanted to be close to activities and good restaurants, but not stuck in the middle of crowds and traffic. We wanted a unit to be on the top floor of a building to keep noise at a minimum and to maximize our view. While we most often use the stairs, we also insisted there be a well-maintained elevator. With Fisherman's Cove, we got all this and much more.

Fisherman's Cove is literally the only condo on any of the gulf coast barrier islands that gives each guest direct beach front to the west and direct bay front to the east.

Bring your boat - there are ramps within walking distance and free docks for guests. If you don't have a boat, you can rent one just down the street.

Bring your fishing gear - the fishing is great in both the gulf and the bay. If you don't bring your own stuff, you can rent fishing gear close by.

Whatever you do, be ready to relax and enjoy the spectacular sunsets from your third floor lanai - no one on the island has a better view!

AMAZING VACATION

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed here on our honeymoon and had a wonderful time. The condo was very clean and had all the amenities necessary to make us feel right at home. The location on Turtle Beach (just south of Siesta Beach) was great because of the much smaller crowd. I can't imagine being any closer to the water either. The building sits just a few yards away from the water, and when sitting on the third floor lanai (which is AMAZING) you can hardly see the beach beneath you. It feels like you are sitting above the water. The views are fantastic, particularly for sunrise and sunset. The canal running behind the condo is great too, as you can kayak and paddleboard out to the mangroves in search of manatees. The boat ramp where most of the rental companies deliver to is only steps away from the condo which was very convenient. Per the owners' suggestion, we ate at the Casey Key Fish House and Demetrio's during our stay. The pizza at Demetrio's was excellent, and the Fish House is not to be missed. The casual dockside dining environment was very nice, and I highly recommend the almond crusted snapper. My wife and I greatly enjoyed our stay here and would love to return in the future!

GREAT PLACE TO STAY!

  • 5 of 5
Loved the location - close enough to amenities, yet far enough away for peace and quiet. Very accomodating condo and very clean. Loved the view and the closeness to the beach. It was the perfect place for our family - including our 3 year old and 9 month old. Owner gave some great information about places to eat and visit. Can't wait to go back again!

AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5
This was by far the nicest Condo we have ever rented. The owner was so helpful and friendly that it felt like home. Clean doesn't describe it. The views were amazing as well as the overall feel! My son proposed on the beautiful beach to his GF and I will soon become a mother in law!

GREAT VENUE

  • 5 of 5
We've been renting condo's in St. Pete Beach and Siesta Key for years. We have never encountered an owner as interested in our having a fun relaxing vacation than this one. He provided lots of information on the condo and suggestions for fun in the surrounding area prior to our arrival. We had a couple of questions during our stay and he responded to emails very quickly. The unit was recently remodeled and was comfortable and well appointed. This is a great location, sandwiched nicely between the intracoastal and the gulf. There was a lovely breeze most nights that flowed through the unit and we slept to the sound of the ocean waves. We recommend it highly!!!!

OUR VACATION IN SIESTA KEY

  • 4 of 5
Room with a view! We enjoyed our stay. Weather is always a factor when you come from the north and it turned cooler in mid week but we still enjoyed the pool and the beach. Clean and comfortable. We closed the window one night because the sound of the waves were keeping us awake. We would likely come back.

THE CLOSEST BEACHFRONT CONDO TO THE GULF OF MEXICO ON SIESTA KEY

  • 5 of 5
The review title sums up an accurate description of the condo. In addition we enjoyed having two king sized bedrooms (a rare find). We spent many hours on the
porch entertaining and watching sunsets and the Gulf of Mexico. The owners are very caring and truly desire for the guests to have a good experience. Before the trip the owners mailed us a guide telling us about the condo, directions, favorite restaurants and local sights to visit. This was most helpful. Upon arrival there was a cart to help carry our belongings and groceries as well as a working elevator to the third floor. The condo had just been remodeled and it was clean, well-maintained with all the necessary kitchen equipment for entertaining. The front desk was friendly and helpful. One of our pleasures was walking the beach. In many evenings and on Sunday we especially enjoyed being close to Turtles Restaurant and walking over for dinner and the Sunday brunch. The entire two weeks was a most positive experience and we plan to return.
