Florida South Central Gulf Coast Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

UPDATED UNIT. Seashell Condominiums is smaller complex located directly on world famous Crescent Beach of Siesta Key--recognized internationally for its fine powdery white sand--cool to walk on even in the heat of summer! Warm crystal blue waters, tropical breezes, and the most inspiring sunsets.

Our beach descends gradually into the warm gulf waters for safe swimming and wading. Whether your goal is a week-long family vacation or a few months of relief from the Northern winter-- Sea Shell and Siesta Key area offers year-round enjoyment.You are literally just steps from the white powdery sand.

This unit is fully furnished. It has 2 bedrooms(one with a master bed and 2nd room has 2 new double/full beds) 2 full baths and plenty of closet space, a fully-equipped kitchen, big screen TV, and DVD, leather couches and free WI-FI, large living room and dining area. Unit is NOT an ocean view but the building is directly on Crescent Beach so literally steps from the sand once you exit the unit. 2 elevators and coin operated laundry facilities available on each floor of the five-story complex.

This is a condo rental, not a hotel. However, Bed and Bath Linens are provided but guests MUST bring their own Beach towels. For your convenience, a start up roll of toilet paper and one of kitchen paper towel is provided but we do not provide supplies for your entire stay.

Absolutely, NO PETS and NO SMOKING allowed in the units and in the common areas of the complex.

Restaurants, bars and convenience stores just steps away. Enjoy Capt. Kurt's world famous clam chowder right across the street.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved Siesta Key , and had a wonderful stay at your condo. It was a nice roomy place and we loved the walk to the beach as well as the entertainment across the street. It was so nice to have chairs for the beach and to watch the sunset over the beautiful Gulf . Beautiful place and we will definitely consider coming back. Maybe even same time same place. Beautiful area.

Thank you again!

Dear Marci & George,

Thank you for your wonderful email. I hope you do visit Siesta Key very soon. You can contact us at anytime for rates and availability. The restoration project at Sea Shell will be complete by December and the next time you will see a freshly painted building and new walkways. We can't wait for the new look!

All the best to you both,

Maddalen & Riccardo

Great condo with great location

  • 4 of 5

My family and I recently got back from a vacation in Siesta Key where we stayed in this condo for 5 nights. We were very pleased with the condo as a whole. It had everything you could possibly want to make your stay the best it could possibly be. The kitchen had everything in it that we needed, other than food of course. There was a total of 6 of us who stayed in the condo. It was a little disappointing when we got there we found out that the pull out bed in the couch was broken and could not be used. We were not told that it was broken beforehand and we had planned on using it, so that was a little disappointing. Luckily we had friends who lived closed by who lend us an air mattress to use or one of the family members would have been sleeping on the ground. This is the only complaint we had with the condo. The owners are very friendly to work with and answer any questions that came up very quickly and politely. The bedrooms are very spacious with bathrooms in each room. The view from the condo isn't the best but you can still see the ocean partially. It is a very short distance to the beach from the room. I would guess it was less than a 100 yards from the room to the sand. The condo also has beach chairs that residence can use so no lugging heavy chairs down the beach every day. The complex is also conveniently located right across the street from a grocery store, places to eat, liquor store, and just about anything you need while you are staying. The free ride service also comes to the condo which was very nice so we really did not need to drive our own vehicle around unless we planned on going off the island. I read some comments about the condo being noisy but we never noticed that being much of a problem. You can hear outside noise from the room next to the walkway but it wasn't anything that will keep you awake. There is also a laundry room on the floor which came in very handy, just need to bring a roll of quarters to use it. It was also a nice surprise when we found out that 2 of the TVs were smart TVs so we could watch NetFlix at night. I highly suggest this property for your vacation rental. You will not be disappointed.

Wonderful apartment on Siesta Key

  • 5 of 5

This is a nicely kept apartment, up to date in all ways, clean with AC that is new and fully operational. The beds are spacious and very comfortable. The location is great on Siesta Key and it is a very short walk to the beach on a nice part of Siesta Key. There is a partial ocean view from the balcony which is lovely to sit out on. Highly recommended.

The condo is updated, clean and has a great location on South Siesta Key. The owners were great to work with as well! The property is right on tbe beach. The condo building has beach chairs you can use daily for free and the condo owners have beach toys and an umbrella you can use. There is also a nice little pool available. We would rent this unit again in a heartbeat! :) We loved it!

Great Condo and Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The condo was excellent. It was clean and nice. Its on the beach which the beach at Siesta Key is PERFECT. I liked all the security at the beach access. The location is great -- across the street is restaurants, tiki bar, grocery store, shops, and beach activities rental. We paddled boarded and saw manatees & sting rays. This part of FL is amazing and I will be back with my family and my son to experience this beautiful part of FL.
