About Barbara

We have owned this condo since 2004. We live and work in the Atlanta, GA metro area. Our family loves coming down here whenever possible!

Barbara purchased this condo in 2004

Why Barbara chose Siesta Key

We bought this condo on Siesta Key after looking all over the state of Florida, and having lived on the Space Coast of Florida for many years. Sarasota is an elegant, artsy city with the more bohemian Siesta Key as a relaxing place to really enjoy the beach and nature. There is so much to do on Siesta Key, and most of it is within walking or biking distance of the condo. The best beaches, restaurants, boating, fishing, tennis and shopping are all steps away from our condo. Bay Oaks is set amongst huge old oak trees which provide beauty and shade. The complex is well managed and well maintained, with a heated pool, tennis court, clubhouse, BBQ grills and a fishing dock right on the IntraCoastal Waterway. The people are friendly and low key, and often meet for cookouts and parties at the pool or clubhouse.

What makes this condo unique

Unique to this condo is the VIEW! It is on the top floor of the high rise building and faces due west, so a spectacular sunset is visible every night from the lanai. The condo is completely remodeled and beautifully furnished in a tropical decor. We have provided everything you will need for your vacation 'home away from home'!

Great owner and unit!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for our family. 2 twin beds in the spare room, was great for our 2 teenagers. The en suite master bed/bath was a luxury we don't have at home. All supplies were included -- even the beach chairs! Because unit is on the top floor, there is minimal noise from other tenants. Even though it was Spring Break, noise from the street did not bother us for sleeping. The owner is prompt and responsive to any questions we had. Had we known, we would have rented bikes for the week instead of for just a day. The only negative I would say is the location to the beach. If I had small children, and wanted to go to the beach every day, it would be a long walk with all the gear. Thankfully, we packed a small cooler for goodies and my kids are old enough to not complain about the walk. Thanks for renting your space for a great week!

Exceptional Condo

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent the month of January 2016 in this lovely condo. It is exactly as pictured: beautifully decorated, large rooms, well equipped kitchen, plenty of closet space, close to the beach and the pool as well. We enjoyed the sunsets from the lanai!

The owner was so easy to work with.

This was our third year in the Siesta Key area and this was the best rental by far.

Wonderful holiday with the family

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful time at Bay Oaks. The condo was very clean, confortable, spacious and fully equipped with everything we needed. The washer and dryer in the unit were a big plus. The kids enjoyed the pool and the sand toys. The unit is very well located. It's a short 2 minute drive to the Siesta Key (free) public beach parking. The installations there are brand new and there is a nice playground for the kids. I did nice runs around the Siesta Key area. There is also a kids fun run every Tuesday evening on the beach of Siesta Key during the summer season. The owner, Barbara always responded quickly to our e-mails and all the info she provided was clear. I would definitally recommend this condo.

What a great place

  • 5 of 5

Spent 2 weeks at this great condo while on a work trip. The rental process was very simple and Barbara was great. She answered all my questions promptly and suggested some great place to grab dinner. The condo was in a great location and close to everything that Siesta Key has to offer. The assigned parking spot was very convenient and close to the elevator. A few steps off the elevator and you in the condo. The condo was extremely clean and well maintained. I hope to return in the future.

Warm, homey, clean

  • 4 of 5

My family and I stayed for a month is this clean, well-appointed condo. The owner, Barbara was wonderful to work with and met all of our needs in a timely fashion. The washer and dryer (in unit) are a huge bonus. The kitchen and bath included all basics and essentials. The balcony provides a view of the Gulf and is spacious enough for a relaxing cup of coffee. Getting to the Cresent Beach is a bit of a challenge, but once you get the lay of the land, it becomes easy to navigate. I highly recommend this unit for your next Siesta Key vacation.
