Feel free to find my Facebook page Siesta Dunes 8-102 for many more pictures and personal eating adventures.

Enjoy the privacy of my beautiful, well-maintained condo in a peaceful garden setting. Our unit is on the first floor of a 2-story building, second from the end. Easy access to the pool and beach. Enjoy all of the amenities that the Siesta Dunes Complex has to offer, which includes tennis, sauna, hot tub, large circular salt-water pool, expansive sun deck with lounge chairs, tables, and several BBQ area. The sun deck has sea-turtle-friendly night lighting for evening relaxation at the tables on the large deck, under pavilion, or on the plentiful lounge chairs. Gather privately or with the other guests to watch the most beautiful sunset you will ever see. Siesta Dunes is directly on the Gulf of Mexico and the atmosphere is beautiful, day or night.

There are no roads to cross to get from our condo to the gorgeous blue-green waters, and clean white sand on our award-winning beach. Siesta Dunes is beachfront. Just a few minutes walk and you will see why our beach is world famous!

Our kitchen is complete and we have tried very hard to anticipate your every need. We are very happy with our newly completed kitchen renovations (May 2016) which include a beautiful recycled glass counter top that extends as a breakfast bar, and subway tile walls. We have a washer and dryer inside our unit for your added convenience as well a radio CD player in the kitchen. We have 3 TVs, 1 VCR, and 1 DVD VCR. There are docking stations on each night stand in the master bedroom. The master shower was completely gutted (May 2016) and is now beautifully tiled with a partial glass shower 'door'. Beach Chairs and Lounges provided by Siesta Dunes for complimentary beach use. You can also rent cabana type lounge chairs and kayaks from a private service at the beach entrance.

One week minimum, Saturday check in and Saturday check out most months. I prefer parties of 4 or less. When children are involved, I may make an exception. I make an exception to the Saturday to Saturday rule during the fall months.

As a new Grammy, I am suddenly very conscious of parents' needs again. We have a pack and play, high chair, booster seat, as well as other baby/toddler items available for your use. You have access to toys, rafts, etc. in our shed and we have a big sturdy yellow wagon for carting everything back and forth to the pool and ocean. "Mingo" is a favorite of my granddaughter. Please note, Mingo needs to stay in the house except when Grammy is taking pictures for the condo. UPDATE: Mingo has a new seagull friend, name pending. (-;

Parents: Please note that the living room is tiled and there is one step that goes from the living room to the enclosed lanai area.

About Karen (owner) with copy to Jessica (office)

After renting at Siesta Dunes for approximately 20 years, we made our dream come true in 2000 and have enjoyed this property and our Siesta Dunes family for the past 15 years. From Hershey, PA, I can be reached at krmclu at AOL - I will be happy to answer any questions you have about the condo, the complex, or the area in general.

Why Karen (owner) with copy to Jessica (office) chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

Experience it for yourself and you will see. Siesta Dunes is a premier property located on the most beautiful beach in the world. Our condo has the convenience of a first floor property, and the privacy of the garden area location. At the same time, you are just a few minutes away (short walk across the grounds) to the beautiful pool, hot tub, deck, and white sandy beach.

What makes this condo unique

Come and see for yourself how fully equipped our condo is. It is my hope that everything is done tastefully and always with the needs of the guest in mind. I expect to have the kitchen renovated in May 2015 as well as the master shower. My condo at Siesta Dunes is much more than a rental. This is a place that I am personally proud to call my second home.

Excellent stay - great for kids!

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent week at Linda's condo! Siesta Dunes is in a great location and the condo is only a 5-7 minute walk to the beach. Even though it's by the main road, it's still very quiet. The condo has everything you would ever need with kids - we used the high chair, pack n play, bed rails, and tons of the toys in the shed. The sand toys and wagon were great! The kitchen is also fully equipped and don't really need anything but food. We'd highly recommend staying at this condo and will recommend it to others!

Awesome-- As ususal!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented 8-102 from Karen for several years now and have watched our son grow up for a pre-schooler to a pre-teen at SKB. Karen's unit is tasteful, practical and clean. Never disappoints to rent from her. She has everything you need to make your stay comfortable. We love sitting in the garden early in the morning with our coffee. The condo has a ton of natural light. The kitchen is well-appointed with everything you need to cook a great meal. The Siesta Dunes property is the nicest on island in our opinion. It is not a high rise and is surrounded by lush tropical landscaping - the staff always does an amazing job making sure the property is spotless. Just a short walk to the beach, it is a pleasant stroll taking only 3 minutes. The walk on the deck is wonderful - clean as a whistle and well lit at night! We love sitting on the huge deck in the evening sipping wine and watching the sunset. It is your private show! There are multiple grilling sites, again spotless and clean! The pool is wonderful also! Clean and wonderful. And the beach is magnificent - one of the lesser crowded spots compared to other resorts on the island. There is a club house to go in for a read in the air conditioning, or as we do - stop in after our night walk on the beach and play a game of chess. The staff is friendly, always saying hello as they make sure the grounds are very secure and safe for the guests. We love Karen's unit and we adore SKB!

Siesta Dunes - Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was fabulous, clean & very comfortable. There was nothing missing, and everything you could possibly want was provided. The area is wonderful and it is the perfect vacation spot! The complex is convenient to everything you need and very quiet. During our stay we especially enjoyed the location and we had absolutely no problems what so ever. We would strongly recommend this condo to anyone desiring a beach front location that has all of the amenities that you need for an excellent get away. Beautiful sunrises & sunsets! Can't wait to go back.

Clean, comfortable, quiet condo (if you don't mind a short walk to beach)

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 was pleased with this condo. Decor was pleasant, beds reasonably comfortable, and amenities provided met our needs. Property location was on a nice beach which was not crowded and had soft sand. The unit itself was one of the farthest from the beach, but still just about a 5-7 minute walk. Grounds were nicely landscaped. Unit was one of the more reasonably priced for its location and amenities. Unit was as described in listing, and photos were accurate.

If you come to the area, would highly recommend the Ringling Museum.

Owner's Response: Cynthia, I'm so glad your family enjoyed your stay and hope to have you back again! The short walk across the grounds and to the beach gets even shorter each time you visit. (-;

Great home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This is the first time we have stayed at Siesta Dunes and this unit, it is a perfect spot. Has all the extras most rentals don't (eg: extra dish and laundry soap, spices; paper towels, etc). Plenty of extra towels for the condo and beach towels as well. Check out the locker it had a lot of goodies for the kids including a new Beach umbrella, (the one there got busted in a storm and we replaced it). The grounds as inviting to walk around at Siesta Dunes, and there is a Webber BBQ at the end of building 8 with a private table for eating. 5 min walk to the beach from condo.

Would recommend the unit and location to anyone with children. Best place for kids... beach, pool and plenty of sunshine.

Thanks for the new beds!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third year in your condo and still as nice as ever. Was really excited to see the new mattress, was much for comfortable than before. Only downside is that we went to rebook and management told us that they can't take new reservations until the end of August. We stay with several other couples that are in the same building so I guess we will have to book a condo thru an actual owner. To bad because we loved staying in your place.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind words and I'm glad you loved the new bedding!! There are several ways you can make a reservation. You can book directly on line through the Siesta Dunes web-site, or you can book through the office in person, or on the phone, but you might run into a situation where the new calendar isn't yet available, etc. For contractual reasons, they can only take bookings so far in advance. For that reason, you might want to make the reservation through me, the owner. I can pave the way, so to speak, so you can schedule further in advance, plus if I am able to offer you any discounts, I certainly will. So contact me anytime either personally or through VRBO, and tell me you are a returning guest. Thank you again, and I look forward to your next visit! Karen

Siesta Key is the "artist's key" and boasts the whitest sand in the world. Siesta Dunes is a short walk on the beach to the Public Beach with its recently updated facilities. "The Village" on Siesta Key, is where you'll find a collection of beachy type restaurants and gift shops, as well as some very fine dining. Two bridges connect Siesta to Sarasota. Sarasota is a modern city with tons of restaurants, shopping, and cultural opportunities.
