Overview

Siesta Key Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo moments from the beach

If you're looking for your tropical paradise, you've found the place!

This well-stocked unit has been remodeled and is beautifully decorated with your comfort in mind. It has wood floors and granite countertops in the fully-equipped kitchen. Wi-fi and a private boat dock are added amenities!

The peaceful view of a tropical island within the boat basin will delight you the moment you walk in. We are located on 14 beautifully landscaped acres on the bayside of Siesta Key. Being on the west side of Midnight Cove II, we are among the closest on the property (approximately 100 yards) to the private beach access leading to the white, powdery sands of Crescent/Siesta Beach, voted each year as one of the top ten beaches in the country. Enjoy walks, shelling, and the Drum Circle every Sunday evening. The festival celebrates the magnificent sunsets over our beautiful beach.

On our lovely property, there is a heated swimming pool, tennis courts (with a round robin during Season where everyone is welcome), basketball hoop and picnic area with gas and charcoal grills. There is plenty of fishing right off the boat docks as well.

You are within walking distance of restaurants, a tiki bar, grocery store and fun shops in which to browse. Sarasota is the cultural hub of the west coast of Florida. There are many theatres and museums to enjoy as well as world-class shopping and dining on St. Armands Circle.

Look no further. You've just found the ideal tropical vacation spot you've always dreamed of. You have arrived in Paradise!

About Claudia Winn

We're a married couple who met and fell in love in Sarasota, Florida, over 35 years ago. This makes it a very special place to us! After retiring, we returned to Sarasota in 2000 and made Siesta Key our home. We decided to share our 'home' in 2009 with others who love the area like us.

Claudia Winn purchased this condo in 2000

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for your attention to detail in everything related to your rental property: from the initial contact, to the lease signing, to instructions of things to do in Sarasota, for getting back to us in a timely manner. My family and I had a wonderful time in Sarasota. I'm sure we will be back. I was pleasantly surprised to find out you had a measuring tape, which I needed to measure an item for shipping. We ordered the whole Thanksgiving dinner from Cafe L'Europe and celebrated Thanksgiving very close to what we do when we are at home.

Clean, classic and great location

  • 5 of 5

Best rental we've experienced! This condo is a 5 minutes walk to the beach and we made the trip with our children with great ease. The pool was great to have on our off days from the beach. I can't say enough about the condo. It was clean, elegant, stocked with everything including beach gear. It was very comfortable and the floor plan provides a generous size living room that allowed us to spread out. I would come back to this place in a heart beat. The owner was delightful and very responsive. Don't miss out on this great place!!

Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

The condo is well equipped with everything anyone would need on a daily basis and for the beach. It also had all the kitchen and bathroom cleaning supplies available, no need to go to a store to buy anything at all. It has a nice decor and it's functional.

It's just one block from the beach, and if you don't want to walk, the pool is very close.

He had a wonderful vacations staying at this property. Just be aware that it's in a first floor by stairs, in case you have a mobility issue.

Owner's Response: We are so pleased that Francisco was comfortable in our home. We pride ourselves on helping make our guests' stay as comfortable as possible. Having lived in this vacation unit, we are more equipped like a home vs. a rental unit. As he mentioned, we are on the second floor and like our guests to be aware of this. We find this to be an advantage vs. a disadvantage from the standpoint of privacy and view. There are seven steps...a landing...and another seven steps.

What a great vacation! The only problem was that it was too short. :) Claudia was so hospitable and accommodating. The unit was lovely and comfortable with everything we could possibly need. The weather and beach were perfect. The location was awesome for dolphin watching, paddle boarding, strolling on the beach, not to mention relaxing during happy hour at Sniki Tiki. We look forward to returning next year that's for sure.

A-MAZING

  • 5 of 5

From the second we decided on this particular property we knew we had made the right choice . Claudia was amazing to deal with - very attentive and they have literally thought of everything that you could possibly need to enjoy your stay at siesta key. It's close to everything and the short walk to the beach was never an issue . TIP - get up early and claim your lounger on the beach and enjoy your coffee while watching dolphins play !!

The unit itself was perfectly appointed - clean , cozy and just felt very comfortable .

Sunsets were amazing and if you have a car zip up to Anna Maria island - an hour drive but worth it !

Claudia has pamphlets and a binder full of everything you need to know so it's all taken care of ! We will definitely come back ! Thanks Claudia !!!

What a PERFECT vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

Let me start by saying Claudia was an credible host from my initial booking thru our departure! Thier home was such a delight and had every detail taken care of for our family of 4 and literally only needed to pack our swim suits and some groceries. Very clean, well decorated home that is very convenient to it all on both Siesta Key and Sarasota. The VRBO description and pics of the place don't do it justice for how wonderful of a place they have! Look forward to sharing with my friends and coming back for another stay!!! Book this jem now and let Claudia show you what genuine hospitality and being an incredible host is all about!

Super clean and lovely surrounds!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Claudia's condo was just wonderful! She always had prompt responses and made sure we arrived and entered safely. The condo itself was super clean and roomy enough for our small family. Location was superb! A very short walk to a private beach-not crowded at all! The water is clear and sand is powder white and so soft. I've been to tropical beaches, Hawaii and FL many times yet this beach is like no other! Condo is also located on the bay which was great for when we rented a boat for the day. We will certainly be returning in the future. Thank you Claudia!

Each Sunday evening, one hour before sunset, there is a drum circle on the public beach which celebrates the sunset. It's a fun gathering with drum playing, ribbon dancing and belly dancing. Everyone is welcome to join in!
