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!

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!

Comfortable & Extremely Well-Furnished

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this unit in late July for a week. We were scheduled to stay for 2 weeks, but the air conditioning broke and we moved to a different unit for the second week. The air conditioning issue was handled very professionally and everything was made right by both the owners and the on-site management.

The condo itself really stands out by how nicely it is furnished. The kitchen had every conceivable appliance including our two favorite things - a Keurig coffee maker and margarita machine! The unit had an excellent selection of dishes, wine glass, etc, along with other small appliances such as a crock pot, etc. The kitchen itself was a bit dated, but everything worked and was very clean.

The owners provide all sorts of items for the beach, including several chairs, beach towels, an umbrella, toys and beach games, etc. We didn't bring any beach supplies with us and everything we needed was available in the condo. In terms of beach logistics, it is very nice to have a ground floor unit with direct access to the beach. It was great to be able to walk right out of the lanai to the beach, and be able to use the hose outside the lanai to rinse off sand when we returned.

Both the master and guest baths are updated, and the master bath has a wonderful walk-in tile shower that is stunning. Bedroom furniture is fresh and the beds were comfortable. It was also very convenient to have a washer/dryer in the condo.

Prospective renters at Fisherman's Cove need to understand there is a trade-off between being on the ground floor vs. floor 2 or 3. While it is fantastic to have the direct beach access on the ground floor, you do sacrifice the incredible water views available on the upper floors. We also heard a lot of noise from people walking and moving about in the unit above us. This wasn't a huge deal, but something to be aware of.

Overall, this is a great choice at Fisherman's Cove, and the owners certainly make guests feel welcome with all the amenities!

We had a wonderful time at your condo. It definitely felt like home, except for the fact we don't have the beautiful view. It was nice for our family to be so close to the water, especially with small children. Everything about this place I loved. Bringing our boat was perfect as we got to explore the island more and see other things.

Our week turned into a family reunion as other family members rented units next to us. It was perfect for the week to all be together. My husband and I said we actually could see us staying for two weeks and didn't want to leave.

Your unit had everything that we would need for our vacation and you made it feel so comfortable. We will definitely be back!

Thanks again!!

103B Fisherman's Cove Sisesta Key

  • 5 of 5

If you want to get away from the rat race for a week and feel totally relaxed the minute you step inside than 103B at Fisherman’s Cove Condos on Turtle Beach, is the place for you!

If you want privacy and do not want to be in an area where there is all the hoopla and are a few feet to a very private and beautiful Turtle Beach with mesmerizing sunsets, than this place is for you!

We thought the sunsets on Mallory Square in Key West were beautiful and they are. But they are just as beautiful here over the water on your chair on Turtle Beach. We truly enjoyed walking maybe 100 feet and sinking our chairs in the sand with our favorite beverages enjoying the spectacular sunsets and the waves coming in. The water is turquoise and clear and clean! So beautiful! The beach itself is also easy to walk on and not near as crowded as Siesta Key Beach which is also nice if you love to people watch. It is only 2 miles away.

As far as Fisherman’s Cove Condos on Turtle Beach, We think 103B is the best. The condo was beautifully decorated with pictures of beaches and palm trees everywhere. Well furnished with a dining room, living room, master bedroom and guest room with 2 twin beds and 2 bathrooms. You do not need to bring much except your own groceries and maybe laundry soap and paper towels. We will not bring anything next time because there are plenty of grocery stores nearby. There is a lanai that we used as a breakfast room in the morning which leads out to your own little beach area with 2 lounge chairs. They also have chairs you can take to Turtle Beach.

The condo has ceiling fans in the master bedroom, spare bedroom, living room and lanai and also there is a laundry room so you can come back with clean clothes. It is truly a home away from home with all the amenities you could ever need.

Will we come back again? That is a resounding yes! We sure didn’t want to leave. We will definitely be back to103B, Fisherman’s Cove Condos right on Turtle Beach in Siesta Key, Florida next year!
