About Phyllis Bankemper

We are local owners who moved to Florida in 2006. We have owned condos on Siesta Key since 1993. We vacationed in Siesta Key for over 20 years and loved it so we finally decided to move here.

Phyllis Bankemper purchased this condo in 1999

Why Phyllis Bankemper chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

We originally bought this property for our future retirement home because it is so open and spacious. It also offers a garage which many of the condos do not have. It is located across from the beautiful Siesta Key beach and is close to the village. The condo complex is very nice and well kept.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a great "girls week". We loved staying here and will surely be back. What a treat also to have a sand sculpture contest on the beach. Thanks for everything. We loved the bikes.

Awesome Condo

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time staying at this Condo. Phyllis keeps here home clean and everything was perfect. The proximity to the public beach was ideal and the pool within 100 yards was perfect for days when we wanted to stay close. It is within walking distance of the village and we used the provided bikes to ride into town as well. Will definitely be returning. By far, our favorite place to stay in our 3 years of visiting Siesta Key.

I don't want to say how amazing this place is- want to keep it a secret :)

  • 5 of 5

We discovered the island while on our honeymoon 13 years ago.. We have been coming back at least once a year since and have stayed in many locations from the village area down to point of rocks. This location was by far our favorite. Your home is beautiful & the amenities perfect! The condo really affords vacationers to only have to pack the minimum- beach towels, beach chairs, an umbrella, sand toys and bicycles are all there to be enjoyed. The home is nicely decorated, clean and in the best location- walk across the street and your are on the best beach on the island!! The owner is responsive to any/ all needs, with a personal touch. Thank you so very much! We hope to be back again soon.

Wouldn't want to stay anywhere else

  • 5 of 5

I know Siesta Key quite well and have many friends staying at different places in the area but I have to say that this condo at Our House at the Beach is a gem. Location location location as they say but it's not just that. The owners have thought of everything and make your stay a truly HOME AWAY FROM HOME experience. Bikes are provided, garage is a definite bonus . The pool is clean and heated. Although I had no one to play tennis with, rackets and balls available at your disposal. Beach chairs and beach paraphernalia galore. The condo has everything you would possibly need and more. I had few questions upon arrival and the owners were more than happy to get back to me to help with my request. Being selfish, I wanted to keep this place a secret but truth be told, I honestly believe it's perfect if you are looking for an elegant, functional, fun, vacation home in Siesta.

Wonderful Condo

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful vacation stay at the condo. It was immaculate and everything that was needed and more was supplied. It is directly across the street from the best beach!! Everything that was needed for the beach was provided. We also enjoyed the turtles and our friend the egret that visited every day. Close to Siesta Key Village which has great restaurants and shops. Cannot say enough good things about this condo. Phyllis and Craig are wonderful hosts and we will definitly recommend this condo to our friends and relatives.
