Wonderful condo. Perfect for couple or family

  • 5 of 5

WOW! We loved this place. The condo was clean, well furnished and had everything we needed for a week vacation. Since this is a corner unit, the views of the intercostal were fabulous. We ate breakfast on the lanai every morning and soaked in the surroundings. Ian, the beach attendant, was a rock star and had lounge chairs and umbrellas ready on the beach every day. There are several good restaurants and bars within easy walking distance and they have live music each evening. We did some charter fishing one day and one of the local restaurants cooked the fish for us that evening - really fun.

Loretta was easy to work with, happily answered all our questions, and made the whole process simple and hassle free. We would definitely stay with her again.

Beautiful, relaxing and great beach

  • 5 of 5

Loretta was great to work with. This was our first time staying on Siesta Key. My husband and I were looking for a fall get-away and Loretta's condo was the right choice. The unit is a corner penthouse and overlooks the inter coastal. We enjoyed having morning breakfast on the lanai and watching the beautiful boats go by. The property has grills you can use, which we took advantage of several nights. The beach attendant was great and set up a sun umbrella for us each time we went down there. The condo was spotless. The kitchen had everything we needed. It felt like we were at home (I wish it was my home!). Everything was perfect. Thank you Loretta for letting us stay with you.

Back Again

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time at Loretta's condo this year. My wife and I stayed here in May and absolutely love the unit and the area. It did not take long to decide to come back for our Fall vacation. If you have the opportunity we suggest you stay in this unit. Everything you need for a great time in Siesta is provided. The beach is fabulous and the sunsets are spectacular.

Fabulous Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have just returned from Siesta after a week in this great unit. Siesta Key is everything advertised, beautiful beaches, funky village and awesome weather. What made this vacation fabulous is all of the above and particularly this unit. It is very spacious and clean.; there is nothing you will need that is not provided here. Being on the Bay side means a bit of walk to the beach (but nothing onerous). Beach chairs and umbrellas are provided at the beach, the beach attendant Ian was great, always ready to help. The beach itself is out of this world; the sand is literally like flour and you won't burn your feet. The water was aqua much like the Caribbean. What pushed our week here over the top is the location of the unit; right on the bay with water views from the screened Lani and the kitchen. We sat and watch the boats go by ever day, it never got old. We will return soon.

Great Place to Relax and Unwind

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this condo in early January. I can’t begin to describe the view from the lanai. It overlooks a small bay on the intercoastal and all day we were able to see boats and birds fly by and one time even saw a small school of dolphins. The condo itself is beautiful. It’s very clean and has a nice open living room and dining area. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook our own meals. I think our favorite room, though, was the lanai. You can access it from both the bedroom and living room. During the warm days, we left the opened the sliding glass doors so that we could enjoy the fresh air and breeze. The nights were a little cool, so we closed the glass doors but still were able to enjoy the view. There are several stores and restaurants within walking distance, so we didn’t need to take our car out too often.

Overall, the condo had everything we needed to relax and enjoy our time on Siesta Key. You really can’t go wrong with this place. The owner was real easy to work with too.

Penthouse Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

The views from this penthose are Incredible! You are right on the intercoastal and you can see for miles! Inside, you have everything you need to enjoy your stay. Very roomy and the screened porch is a real treat too.

Just below is a private bay where we were able to fish from piers. Fishing was terrific - we caught all kinds. Just across the street was one of the top ten beaches listed in Florida. We think it's the best one. The sand is pure white and feels like powder! The pool on property was great and not crowded either.

There is a great choice in local restaurants too. Some are within walking distance - our favorite was at the Marina just across the bridge. Just a short drive up the island was the little town with more restaurants and shops. Great breakfast place too.

There is a good choice of golf courses close by too.

We also visited the Ringling Museum, Art museum, and St Armands Circle is a must for everyone!

This penthouse has it all - you can simply relax or take in the many attractions.

You will enjoy your stay. - We did!
