Florida South Central Gulf Coast Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom 2 Bath Condo on the Beach, Private Beach w Beach Chairs & Heated Pool

This one has it all...

•House of the Sun is located at 6518 Midnight Pass Road, Siesta Key, Florida 34242

• 2nd Floor Unit #201.

•Reserved parking space is located under the building and you car will be kept cool 24/7.

•Master Bedroom has a king size bed, double mirrored closets, a mirrored vanity area, flat screen TV and is very spacious.

•Second bedroom has two twin beds and flat screen TV.

•Living Room has High speed wireless internet, Surround Sound Home Theater with Ipod docking station, Blue Ray DVD player and 55'' flat screen smart TV.

•Fully equipped kitchen with a clothes washer and clothes dryer.

•Balcony with two lounge chairs, table w/4 chairs.

•Beach towels, beach lounge chairs provided on our beach by House of the Sun, and beach toys are all here. No need to bring any.

•Heated Pool and our own private tennis courts overlook the gulf.

•House of the Sun supplies lounge chairs both at the pool and on our section of the beach.

Views from the balcony face off to the southwest. Although this condo does not offer a view of the gulf, we still have a very nice view facing off towards the southwest and we get a wonderful southern exposure on our balcony all day long. House of the Sun has fourth and fifth floor decks with tables, chairs and lounge chairs and is a popular spot for sunset and the breathtaking panoramic views of Siesta Key Beach. Our HEATED POOL, and PRIVATE TENNIS COURTS overlook the gulf. During winter season the location cannot be beat, being one block from the Stickney Point Bridge (no long, slow lines on and off the key), and restaurants, bars, grocery, bike rental, drug store, ice cream, 7/Eleven, and much, much more, just across the street from House of the Sun.

Guests of House of the Sun enjoy bringing their evening cocktails and snacks to the FIFTH FLOOR DECK where a horn is typically blown at sunset every evening. CHARCOAL GRILLS are availble with a beautiful picnic area that overlooks the beauty of the Gulf.

If you want a stress-free drive-free vacation, away from the public beach but still on the beautiful quartz crystal sands of Siesta Key Beach, this is one to consider.

Donna Grimmer purchased this condo in 2005

Why Donna Grimmer chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

House of the Sun is an extremely well run and maintained property. And we have all of the conveniences of shopping right across the street. We do not have to deal with the slow moving traffic on the key as we are just off of the south bridge (Stickney Point). Having a condo on the 2nd floor is a wonderful convenience, even with the 2 elevators, we can just walk up one flight of stairs to our condo. We love our place at House of the Sun!

What makes this condo unique

Dave and I have been coming to Siesta Key for over 15 years and we love it. We decided to purchase our condo at House of the Sun for so many reasons. First, we really like the location. The complex is on the gulf and one block away from the Stickney Point Bridge. During the busier times of the year, it is wonderful to be able to leave our building, cross the bridge and get to our destination without long, slow lines. We enjoy the large, heated pool the overlooks the gulf, and we love the decks on the fourth and fifth floors. Every evening, guests of House of the Sun love to come up to the 4th and 5th floor decks for sunset. A horn is typically blown from our 5th floor deck just as the sun is disappearing into the Gulf. The deck provides a panoramic view of Siesta Key Beach, and we are one of the very view complexes that have these wonderful decks right on the beach. We love the convenience of being able to walk across the street for groceries at the Crescent Market, cocktails at the Sniki Tiki and dinner at Claytons. Typically, my car stays under the building in my covered parking space for most of my time at House of the Sun. Everything that I need is right across the street, from rentals, to shops, to a variety of eateries, liquor stores, ice cream, pizza, pharmacy, rentals, and the list goes on and on...I simply cannot say enough about the location and amenities here at House of the Sun!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Donna,









Donna,

We definitely enjoyed Siesta Key and wish we would have booked more time. In addition to being on the beach and watching sunsets, we especially enjoyed a glass crafting class we found with Groupon that we would highly recommend for the Sarasota School of Glass (of course, better to just call them rather than go through Groupon though). It was very close by and my wife and kids all enjoyed it.

The Best Vacation Ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at House of the Sun so much we didn't want to leave. Great location, Amazing Condo,had everything anyone could need. So well stocked, so clean and so pretty, We felt right at home. And so close to everything . We love Capitan Kurt's and the Sniki Tiki and all we had to do was walk across the road. And just a few steps to the wonderful beach.We took my 80 and 83 year old parents along and was so easy for them to get to the beach and to the car , They had a great time. Love this place and can't wait to go back....

Owner's Response: Hi Luca, Thank you for the nice comments. I hope that the exterior building painting will not keep you from coming back in the future. The painting happens about every 7 years and they do try to do this kind of work in the fall. I hope that you come back in the future so that you can enjoy without the work that was happening on the exterior. House of the Sun is exceptional on keeping the building in excellent condition and I do my best to keep my condo very clean, neat, updated and fresh. I also wanted to thank you for the wine that you left behind. Dave and I enjoyed it! Sincerely, Donna Grimmer

We loved this condo!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week and I have to say it was simply amazing. I have rented from VRBO many times but have never had a place so clean and well stocked for renters. Everything you need is there. The location cannot be beat. The condo is spacious and bright and the beds are so comfortable. Donna was a true gem to deal with and I cannot wait to return. be sure to head across the street for a cold drink at the Sniki Tiki - we really enjoyed it there.

Owner's Response: Hi Sandy, Thank you for your review and for all of your kind words. I am lucky to have my own cleaning lady and she treats all of my condos as if they are her own. I get compliments all of time about the cleanliness of my condos. She is truly a gem! I do my very best to make sure that my condos are stocked with the things that I would use if I were a guest and I appreciate that you were aware of the extras. I hope that you will come back from your home in NL Canada and stay at any of my condos on Siesta Key. The Sun and Beach will be waiting for you. Donna

Beautiful condo and beach

  • 5 of 5

The condo is beautifully decorated and is located in an excellent location. We enjoyed several of the restaurants that are within walking distance of the condo. The condo and the grounds were very clean. We rented a boat for 1/2 day from CBs and were surprised at how reasonably priced it was. Thank you for sharing your condo with us!

Definitely Made A Memory that will last a Lifetime!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Siesta Keys...and pretty sure it won't be our last. I was overly impressed with Donnas condo and her availability for any questions. There is everything you need to make yourselves right at home...I highly recommend staying here. The people staying at the House of the Sun were all so very nice and friendly which made the stay there even more enjoyable. You are only a hop, skip and a jump from the beach or beaches and the village is only a couple miles away along with all kinds of shops, restaurants etc. I would definitely recommend anyone who wanted to stay in Siesta Keys to look Donna up.

Owner's Response: Hi Lynette, Thank you for the wonderful note. It's great to know that I was able to help make your first trip to Siesta Key a good one. You are a wonderful guest and welcome back anytime. Siesta Key will always have something new to offer, from the dolphins, to snorkeling at the point of rocks to just watching the birds walk on the beach. It is always an enjoyable experience. Come back again soon.
