Siesta Key Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6) sleeper sofa in living room

This standard-sized two bedroom condo in the Palm Bay Club sleeps six and has a good view of Sarasota Bay. The condo is located on the peaceful bay side and you can watch the boats go up and down the inter-coastal from the condo, pool, hot tub, or pier. When you want the excitement of fabulous Crescent Beach, just walk through the complex and your beach furniture is waiting for you. Sun bathe, swim, boogie board, snorkel, collect shells, or just watch people go by.

The condo has free wireless internet. There is a Verizon FiOS Television Prime Bulk Package with a 15 channel HBO package, a DVR with an HDTV in the living room, a digital set box in the master bedroom with a HDTV and a standard set box with a digital TV in the second bedroom. Each TV has a DVD player.

The kitchen is fully furnished (including refrigerator with ice maker, range, dishwasher, microwave and disposal). The balcony overlooks the bay and pool. The master bedroom has a king bed and the second bedroom has a queen bed. Hair driers are furnished in the bathrooms which each have a shower/tub combination. All linens and towels are furnished. The phone has an answering machine but long distance calls are blocked. Palm Bay Club Facilities: Two heated pools, fishing pier, large custom hot tub overlooking the bay, boat docks, barbecue grills, two lighted tennis courts, a recreation room, 2 workout rooms, 2 hot saunas, a private beach with furnished chairs and chaise lounges, 24 hour security, and laundry facilities on each floor.

When you walk on the beach your feet will not get hot because it is one of three quartz beaches in the world. When you are done at the beach and ready to wind down, you and your guests will be able to escape to the quiet comfort of the bayside where there is a pool, large hot tub, boat dock, and fishing pier.

You can also stop at the clubhouse and workout, sit in a sauna, shoot pool, play ping pong, swim in another pool, or play tennis on one of the lighted courts. There is a king bed in the master bedroom and a queen bed in the second bedroom. There is a pull out couch in the living room. Wireless internet is free for all you web surfers.

Rent from me directly and we both save money by eliminating the middle man. Most of my business comes from people who have shopped around and from repeat customers. If you have a large group, I also have the adjacent condo ( #45661 ) which sleeps 6 and you can sleep a total of 12 if you rent both condos.

If you elect to rent with me, I take a $500 deposit to reserve the condo. The balance is due one month before arrival and when I get the check I will send you the keys.

Hiking, Biking, Golf, Tennis, Fitness Center, Fishing, Shopping, Restaurants, Live Theater, Cinemas, Museums, Sightseeing, Swimming, Snorkeling/Diving, Boating, Sailing, Water-skiing, Windsurfing, Parasailing, Jet Skiing, Shelling, and biking are all available close by. The condo is conveniently located near area attractions such as the Mote Marine Aquarium, St. Armands Circle, Siesta Village, John & Mable Ringling Museum of Art, Marie Selby Botanical Gardens, Sarasota Jungle Gardens, Also Theatre, Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall and Ed Smith Stadium (Cincinnati Reds Spring Training Home) as well as area businesses like Sarasota Memorial Hospital and Sarasota Bradenton International Airport.

There are many golf courses in the Sarasota area. There is a course to challenge everyone.

About Doug Hausladen

I'm retired and have several condos on Siesta Key to keep me busy.

Doug Hausladen purchased this condo in 2003

Why Doug Hausladen chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

Siesta Key is a family friendly place that has something for everyone. Sarasota has many cultural venues and the beach is unique in that it is made out of quartz. The Palm Bay Club has the most amenities of any property on the Key. I bought there because I can play all the golf I want to at home but don't have a beach like this one at home.

You will not be sorry renting from Doug, and vacationing on Siesta Key!!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent vacation!! We had a great time! The condo was very well equipped and there was no lack of space! Doug, the owner, talked my husband through a slight AC issue, over the phone, and was extremely helpful. We thought the condo itself was nicer than the pictures depict. Palm Bay Club is very well maintained. The beach is beautiful and the pool/hot tub right outside of the condo on the bay side is immaculate. The bay side (where this condo is located) also has docks for fishing in Sarasota Bay. We spent all of our mornings starting around 8:30 AM on that side before heading over to the beach. Doug has a closet with beach toys, pool toys, an umbrella, a fishing pole with accessories, a rolling cooler, etc for renters' use, which came in very handy. Those items were used daily. The wifi was great and we had no problems with connectivity. The balcony terrace is large and we ate meals out on it. I highly recommend this condo and recommend the Palm Bay Club. There are tennis courts, and another pool located on the side the beach is on. We met some great people, and everyone was super friendly. The vibe on Siesta Key is very laid back and carefree. We will be returning and will rent from Doug again!!

Awesome place...will definitely come back!

  • 5 of 5

My family & I loved the condo! Very clean & updated very nicely. Very close to the pool by the bay & we actually saw a Manatee while swimming the one day. So nice & relaxing to hang by the pool & watch all the boats go by. The unit is within walking distance to the 2nd pool, which is bigger, but no view with that one, still very nice. Also within walking distance to the private beach, you will just want to make sure you have a beach bag to carry your towels, etc as it's at the end of the driveway on the other side of the parking lot from where this unit is located. Very nice clean beach, there are chairs provided which is great & Doug has an umbrella in the unit to take along with some pool noodles & a float to use. I would definitely recommend this condo to anyone & was not ready to leave when our days were up. Laundry machines are located down the hall, just need to load money on the laundry card you get from the main office. To load the card, you have to go to the game room, the girls at the front desk didn't explain that to us, but luckily some tenants in another unit filled us in. You pay the main office 5.00 for the card & when you return the card you get your 5.00 back , but this money is not loaded on the card, you still need to do this. Thanks for sharing your awesome condo with us Doug, we LOVED it!!

Lovely and Amazing!

We just returned from a wonderful week in lovely Siesta Key, our favorite place to relax and enjoy. This was our third time in this condo and we are relieved to report that it truly was an amazing experience, one we hope to repeat again in the near future. The condo is absolutely lovely, decorated impeccably and stocked with everything one would want or need to feel at home. We loved spending time there. The white sand beach was a short 10 minute walk. We are very grateful to have found such a special place and gladly will return as soon as our schedules will allow.

Great condo

  • 5 of 5

Stayed there for 4 nights during Spring Break. The condo was in great condition and even better than the pics. The bathrooms appear to have been recently updated. Plenty of space for 2 couples. We loved the bay side pool. It was away from the spring break crowds. We took the "free " taxi to the village. On the beach side, free chairs are provided.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

The condo had a great location. I did think that the beach was closer than described, but you had to walk across the main road and through the other complex of condos to reach the beach which was about 2 blocks from this condo. It was a beautiful beach area and the sunsets were amazing. The bay and pool/hot tub were right there and very beautiful. The condo's bathrooms had been updated and were very nice. The bedroom furniture and window coverings could still use updating. The dresser drawers in the master bedroom were unstable and had a musty odor. The bed was not very comfortable either. We were surprised to arrive and have no toilet paper in the bathrooms or trash bag in the kitchen. After a car trip to get to Siesta Key the first thing most of us have to do is use the restroom. There was nothing noted on the description to state that we needed to bring our own toilet paper, trash bags and paper towels. We have rented many vacation condos before and these items have always been provided. It would have been good to know that we needed to provide these items so we could have come prepared. It was a great value for the money and we enjoyed our stay in Siesta Key.

Owner's Response: Oh goodness! We are so sorry! It was a simple mistake, our housekeeper ran out of toilet paper and intended to come back to deliver a starter roll and of course, life does happen! Thank you so much for taking the time to tell us what you think. We are always making improvements and listening to our renters! We'll also be certain to update our information but most folks know when getting a vacation rental that it doesn't come with those items. We hope you had a wonderful time and wish you all the best in your travels. Best, The Hausladen Family
