Enjoy a tropical drink while watching the boats go by from the screened-in lanai of our sixth floor condo, unit #617, situated on Siesta Key, a barrier island in the Gulf of Mexico just minutes from the beach and downtown Sarasota.
The condo was newly remodeled in 2007 with a fully furnished kitchen including granite counter tops, smooth-top stove, side-by-side refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher, microwave, blender, coffee maker and an electric tea kettle.
The master bedroom has a king size bed with a large walk in closet and on-suite bathroom. The master bedroom includes a TV with VCR and DVD. The master bath features a shower with a dual shower head, well lit vanity area with granite counter top and magnified make-up mirror.
The guest bedroom has two twin beds, flat screen TV, large closet and on-suite bath. Both bedrooms provide access directly to the lanai.
The condo is equipped with everything you need for fun including beach chairs, beach towels, noodles, tennis racquet's and a cooler.
The property has two heated pools, three har-tru tennis courts and a marina with space available for your boat. It also features a large poolside patio with four gas grills and plenty of space to enjoy meals. Harbor Towers offers free Wi-Fi in the recreation room which also features a large screen TV where free movies are shown every Friday evening.
Across the street and just a five minute walk away is Siesta Beach rated the "Best Beach in Florida" by Florida Trend Magazine. Famous for its soft white sand, the beach amenities include lifeguards, concessions, picnic tables & grills, ten volleyball courts, rest rooms and showers.
Siesta Key is located 10 minutes from downtown Sarasota and has wonderful restaurants and great shopping. It's only 20 minutes from Sarasota Airport, 60 minutes south of Tampa International Airport, 90 minutes north of Fort Myers and 2 hours to Disney/Orlando.
We love traveling around the world, learning about new cultures and meeting new people. We live in upstate NY and enjoy the distinct seasons this area has to offer. We do enjoy getting away to our little hideaway in the sun when the winter's drag on a bit too long.
We fell in love with Siesta Key and Sarasota the first time we visited. We love being able to walk on the beach, eat at a nice restaurant on the water, sit on a bench on our condo property watching the manatees and boats go by or take a quick drive downtown to St. Armand's Circle.
Our condo association is very well run so the property is always maintained nicely. We like the free wi-fi in the lobby. We make a habit of going down in the evening to check on our email and connect with friends back north. We also like cooking out on the grills near the pool. We usually bring the cooked food back upstairs and eat dinner on our lanai watching the boats go by.
The tennis courts, sauna, swimming pool and fitness center are also very nice benefits. On Friday evenings, there's also a movie that is played in the social room on the very large (72") TV.
