Rick Briggs purchased this condo in 2002

Why Rick Briggs chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

This is one of the nicest beaches in the world and one of the best run condos. The location of the condo in the building is super convenient. Siesta Key is rated #1 Beach in the US-come find out why. During peak vacation times the traffic can be a little long up adn down the one road in front of the condo on Midnight Pass Road--so getting off the island can take a while. Have no fear! This location is right at the Stickney Point drawbridge so you don't have to wait--you are at the front of the line.

What makes this condo unique

The location! Nothing on Siesta Key is more convenient than this condo. Park your car and forget it. Walk out from the condo to the beach--no shoes required. Have a few beers across the street, enjoy the karaoke, and then stumble back home.

Great Value & Location

  • 5 of 5

The location right off the drawbridge on gorgeous Crescent Beach allowed us to avoid public beach traffic. The condo was very spacious and comfortable for a family of four. This particular unit's linens were very worn - the kids' comforters had holes, and the sheets on the master bed had stains. We went to Marshalls nearby and got our own linens. The chairs on the balcony were rusted, and one was lopsided as a result. Improvements in these areas would go a long way. However, even with the small challenges our stay was wonderful.

Owner's Response: Jill, Thank you for addressing those issues and I assure you they will be corrected. There is an onsite cleaning crew that would of handled the sheets and bedspread if the front office would of been notified. The salt from the ocean can really do damage to metal chairs, which are being replaced. I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. We strive to be the best condos in all of Siesta Key. I am happy to hear that you had a wonderful time and I look forward to your return in the near future. Thanks for staying with us. Rick

My husband and I were looking to avoid a Midwestern January and spent the month in this condo. The condo was very comfortable from the beds to the living room. It had two nice bathrooms and a fully stocked kitchen. Great decor. The beach was splendid as was the heated pool. Also, there were many restaurants nearby and a grocery and pharmacy. Staff was courteous and helpful.

Fiesta in Siesta!

  • 5 of 5

First time at the Seashell condos and we had a great experience! The location can't be beat. Right on the best beach in the world and across the street from multiple shopping and dining options. The condo was great! Clean, well kept, and had all the amenities we needed. We also loved the complex, the beach-side grilling area and access to chairs were perfect! We're hoping to come back soon!

Beautiful location and excellent staff!

  • 5 of 5

Second time at Seashell Condos - this time was for our honeymooon. My wife and I couldn't have asked for a more beautiful and well-kept location. Our condo was well updated with new furnishings, appliances, and great decor! Staff were always very friendly and helpful if we needed it. We really felt like we were at our own home away from home. We will most definitely be back soon!!

Out of the cold.

  • 5 of 5

Family has been to the Seashell numerous times during the summer months with excellent experiences. But the trip in December blew those great experiences out of the water! If there is a way to describe perfect weather, the week we spent away from the cold and ice, was exactly that. I spent hours enjoying the beach while younger members of the family enjoyed kayaks, biking and swimming. The entire family enjoyed a dolphin watching tour as well as the beautiful light displays of the numerous businesses on Siesta Key. Dining options were numerous from local fish camps to 5* dining in the village. Can't wait to go back next year.
