Memorial Day Week

  • 5 of 5

My Wife and I visted from May 29th through June 3rd. We had the most relaxing - stress-free vacation that we've had in many years. The condo was equipped with more than anyone would need. Slept like babies every night! The time of year we came - we practically had the pool to ourselves and the beach was always great. We enjoyed finding over 100 sand dollars and many other shells. We watched the dolphin play; had a manatee lazily swim by; swam with a leopard stingray and of course the fablous waters of the Gulf. Not a drop of rain and we compensated for the heat with the pool and great blue/green Gulf waters.

Beth - Thanks for allowing us to stay in your unit. We hope you will have us back!!

What a Great Owner

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful condo, on the gulf with a nice beach, with a beautiful pool between the condo and the gulf. The best part is how the owner (Beth Gotthelf) quickly took care of a problem that came up. We would rent from her again in the future.

  • 5 of 5

This condo lives up to all expectations and more. Beautifully maintained, the most fabulous view, contains everything you'll need and more (just bring your toothbrush and clothes). My husband and I are childless and we travel alot in and out of this country; and except for a condo we rent right on the beach at Treasure Key, Bahamas this is the most awesome view we've come across. Extremely comfortable furniture. Easy access to great (upper scale) restaurants, all within minutes of the condo. We highly recommend this condo and we'll be going back.

Car: recommended

This condo is located near everything. Boating across the street. Tennis on the property. Tennis is also available down the street at the world famous Colony Tennis and Spa resort. Other tennis academies close by. Bike lane along the whole length of the key. Separate running/walking path also along the key. Golf available at many locations. Many restaurants, great shopping at the south end of the key infamous St. Armands Circle. And if that is not enough then you have everything Sarasota has to offer just a few minutes down the road.
