As you wind your way down to the southern tip of the island of Siesta Key, any tension or stress is immediately alleviated with the quiet drive under the canopy of trees shading the road, sidewalks, and bike paths. Our beach front condo is located directly on Turtle Beach (beach level!) with a location like none other! Being directly on the beach with sand at your front door and bordered in the back by a small bay where you can dock your boat or fish off the private docks, our 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo is the perfect vacation and holiday spot for a romantic getaway or family vacation.

With the close view of the ocean, it is easy to spot dolphins, manatee, and native birds during the day while lounging in beach chairs or from the comfort of the enclosed lanai, living room, or master bedroom as all have a direct ocean view. And in the evening you will be captivated by the spectacular sunsets and the soothing sounds of the surf gently lulling you to sleep - it’s all right at your doorstep!

About Debbie Sipp

We live in central IL and love to escape to Siesta Key. Having 4 grandchildren keeps us busy and traveling as our daughter's family lives in VA. Since recently retiring, we have plans for more travel; but our unique barn home on 80 acres also keeps us very busy. Debbie is a quilt maker and loves to cook, and Jim is very handy and handles all of the equipment and needs that 80 acres entails. We love to share our condo, so that others may enjoy the beautiful area as much as we do. The photo we will include was taken on the Maine coast-our retirement trip-2009. Enjoy our condo. Jim and Debbie

Debbie Sipp purchased this condo in 2004

Why Debbie Sipp chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

We searched many Florida locations for several years before settling on Siesta Key. It just felt warm and welcoming and the beauty of the Gulf sold us. With the location narrowed down, we searched for the right condo. And we found it in our Fisherman's Cove condo. We have excellent management-very attentive to the needs of ourselves and our guests. The complex of 2 buildings is small (each only 3 stories high), gated, and is so well maintained. We always meet nice people there-both other owners and guests!

What makes this condo unique

We love the drive down from the bridge linking Sarasota to Siesta Key to our condo-with bike paths on each side and large tropical trees and gardens lining the roadway. When you arrive at our condo, you notice the Sarasota Bay lagoon on our parking lot side. Then when you enter, you just have this great ocean view of the Gulf of Mexico! There is something so calming about viewing the water, and we have it on each side! The beach is just literally at our doorstep which makes it convenient for families as we know how children like to go back and forth for snacks, toys, etc. and our first floor location makes that extremely easy. We have furnished the condo just like our own home, because it is, so we have a lot of extras. We love to treat ourselves to some of the great restaurants in the area, but always race home to see the sunset on our lanai or patio--so very special. So relax and enjoy yourselves-we all need a vacation like this one!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Siesta Key is a beatiful location for a family vacation and Debbie and Jim's condominium on the beach is a home away from away. We have stayed at Fisherman's Cove in the past but their place has everything you need and has been completely updated on the inside and even has a washer and dryer (most units do not). Our children loved being able to step outside our back door to enjoy the beautiful beach, and then conveniently fish off the dock at the front of the unit. We have fallen in love with this location and we will definately return for years to come!

This condo is very roomy, clean and tastefully decorated. The views are lovely. You can hear the waves when you open the windows which we did almost every night. Bed is comfy. These owners go way beyond to stock the kitchen and provide more than enough linens, pillows, towels and beach towels. The margarita blender was well used. The provided beach chairs and lounge chairs were another bonus. We took advantage of the fishing equipment which was the highlight for my husband :) There is tons of opportunity for shelling which, along with beach walking every day, was the highlight for me :) The heated pool is very nice. Make sure you spend some time at Crescent beach and Siesta beach too. There are two restaurants within walking distance. Everything else you need to drive to but that is a very small price to pay for being right on the beach. Staff on property very friendly and helpful. The drum circle at Siesta Beach on Sundays is a must see and do. We cannot say enough about this condo and property. We only wish we could take this condo with us to other vacation locations!!!

Best Vacation Place!!

  • 5 of 5

Our annual vacation to stay at Turtle Beach for a week, is something that keeps me going throughout the year. We have vacationed in many different places but the combination of the beautiful beach, so many things to do in the vicinity, and staying in such a great condo, combine to make the perfect vacation. The unit is fabulous - it has everything that you need, and more!! And, it is clean, organized and the location is perfect. Not only do I highly recommend renting this unit, I will continue vacationing here for as long as I can!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here over the Christmas break everything was wonderful the weather, shelling and the condo. This condo had everything you need for a relaxing vacation. My sister from Indiana and daughter from Pennsylvania joined us for a very enjoyable stay. Booked this condo again for a two week stay in October, can't wait to see the new beach, that was the only draw back but now I see the beach has been redone.

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at Fishermen's Cove before but his condo was the most comfortable and appointed.

The owners have done everything to make it feel like home. The added touches such as the beach towels chairs, umbrellas, fishing poles and all the appliances you could want in the kitchen made our stay very enjoyable. The unit was also spotless. The owners have done everything to make your stay here a wonderful experience.

Just what our family needed!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first family vacation and with a 2 year old and a 9 month old...we were a bit apprehensive buy thoroughly elated when we arrived at Fisherman's Cove! Debbie and Jim's home is perfect - and perfect for families as well. Everything we needed was right here including a high chair, pack and play and beach toys! Every morning we went for walks on the beach and each night we watched the sunset and listened to the waves right outside the window. There was a park, a restaurant and of course the beach all within walking distance. Additionally, there were plenty of other activities and additional beaches and restaurants within a short drive. Our time was so perfect in Florida we even had to stay an extra night (with family) before heading back north. Thank you for our magical week. We cannot wait to come back next year!
