Siesta Key Condo Rental Photos and Description

Updated condo 2 Bedrooms and 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)

Beautiful Siesta Key Beach-to-Bay complex with our beach voted recently #1 by Dr. Beach and now TripAdvisor for 2015, and always in the top 10 for North America.

Our condo is meticulously maintained and it is a two bedroom, two bath, very open with a remodeled and stocked kitchen that flows into the living areas. There are many updated features throughout and amenities to please for an enjoyable and relaxing vacation. We have tile throughout the main living ares, entry and kitchen, with carpet in both bedrooms.


Nicely appointed with a King-size bed, mounted 32" flat screen TV, en-suite style bathroom with tub/shower combination and a set of sliding-glass doors that open onto the balcony/lanai.


Updated and room for an active group! (2) Double beds, with (1) Twin-upper bunk, so everyone has a bed, another flat screen TV and en-suite bathroom with large vanity and tub/shower combination.


The living room is open with plenty of natural light provided by the second set of sliding-glass doors that bring you onto the balcony/lanai. There is a mounted 42 inch flat screen TV and two leather sofas for comfort and easy living. We have (2) DVD players available. Upgraded cable service with premium channels and free Wifi throughout. The kitchen has been recently remodeled, it has granite counter tops, newer appliances, comes fully furnished with lots of pots/pans, and just about any small appliance you could need, matching dishes and many utensils – everything you need to cook a full meal if you desire. The dining table is large and comfortably seats 6 people. Our condo has gone through many updates in the six years we have owned it with new furnishings and annually painted throughout. We are located on the inter-coastal side of the property, with a short 5-7 minute walk through the property to reach the private beach. Our home is very clean with all of the amenities you would look for! For your added convenience towels and linens are provided, even beach towels! Our beds are premium beds for further comfort and the condo is family friendly and ready for what a great vacation has to offer.


The complex has two heated pools, a large spa along-side of the inter-coastal waterway and the Bay-side pool, lighted tennis courts, BBQ’s , a fishing pier, boat dockage, a fitness and game room that is currently being renovated for even more fun, 24 hour private security, our own private beach access, with lounges chairs and seating provided at both the beach and the two pools. Our complex is located at the "Heart" of Siesta Beach so it is very centrally located - just about 1.5 miles from The Village which has many options for local dining and shopping.


Additionally, we own a second condo, listing #3909450, Gulf-side condo #139, at this Palm Bay complex. This condo is a ground floor, steps from the sand, 2br/2 bath, *larger at 1300 sq. ft. and if you would like to know more look for #3909450, or click on this link:

Why the Owner Chose Palm Bay Club: We chose to purchase on Siesta Key for many reasons. Being in Southwest Florida, it is centrally located to several airports (many within a 1 1/2 hour drive, door-to-door) which make it very convenient. Airports include Tampa, St. Petersburg, Punta Gorda, Sarasota, and Orlando. The weather is consistently warm and sunny, and this complex is so well maintained; we can choose to go to the private beach or enjoy the sights and activities on the inter-coastal water way. It is a 'great get-a-way from it all' location, with quaint charm and lots of local character.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo: This condo is kept up to date with new furnishings and is very comfortable. Some of our favorite things to do are to get jet skis and use them throughout our entire trip. We dock them at the private boat slips that are available to owners/guests and we take them up and down the inter-coastal or Gulf. We watch the dolphin and manatee as we sit by the Bay-side pool and spa. There is even a private fishing pier alongside of the Bay pool. We partake of many wonderful local restaurants and enjoy the seafood.

Local amenities: Siesta Key offers numerous attractions, many local and more within a short drive. There are plenty of local restaurants, one of all kinds, family run, and always fresh. Water sports and activities are all within walking distance. There is a huge art community surrounding Sarasota, which offers numerous museums, galleries and gardens for viewing and live performances. Of course, the theme parks are a short drive away in Orlando (Disney, Universal, Sea World) and Bush Gardens in Tampa. Florida is definitely one of the best spots for a wide variety of activities or just plain relaxing by the beautiful Crescent Beach at Siesta Key.

About Bridget & Mark Sommer

We reside in Louisville, Kentucky and are the proud parents of three girls and two boys. We enjoy going to Siesta Key and taking every opportunity to continue to keep our condo in top shape. We love this complex and location so much we recently purchased a secondo condo on the Gulf-side, #139

Bridget & Mark Sommer purchased this condo in 2008

Why Bridget & Mark Sommer chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

We love the low-key and quaint lifestyle of Siesta Key. This island is the ultimate beach-town with no commercialization around. Being in Southwest Florida, it is centrally located to several airports, the weather is consistently warm and sunny, and this complex is so well maintained.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just came back from staying in our own condo. The recent updates - new kitchen, light fixtures and ceiling fan - all look great and give the unit even more of an open updated look. The condo has a very clean and easy living appearance and the association does a great job keeping it that way. The weather couldn't have been better - sunny and low 80's every day! We found another great restaurant called The Cottage in the village that was fantastic! Hope you can enjoy it too!

Outstanding Condo!

  • 5 of 5

An outstanding condo! I have stayed at this property twice. Once for a family vacation and once for a girls trip. Great location that is a short walk to the beach and near two pools. The bayside pool is beautiful, located right off the dock with a gorgeous view. Really enjoyed having the option to go to the beach or pool. This spacious condo is clean and comfy and accommodates either a small or large group. Parking spots right outside the condo make it easy to get in and out. The bunk beds is fun for children and we enjoyed the layout of the condo and the configuration of the beds/rooms. Highly recommend it, a great place to stay in Siesta Key!

Couldn't have had a better place to stay

  • 4 of 5

This 2 bedroom condo was exactly as described and photographed in the listing. Prior to our booking, we e-mailed the owner with some questions and received a very genuine personalised reply which led to us making the reservation. We found it to be immaculately clean and we identified no items in need of maintenance within the property. Both pool areas were also very clean and in good condition. The reception staff at Palm Bay Club were very friendly and approachable. I would have no hesitation in recommending Siesta Key to any friends or relatives looking for a beach side vacation in Florida and I would particularly recommend this condo. The beach is outstanding with sugar sand and gently crashing surf- well deserved of the title #1beach in the USA. The highlight of our visit was a boat rental from Turtle Beach Marina which allowed us to see wild dolphins, manatee and ospreys in their natural habitat. Turtles restaurant provided us with a delicious, freshly prepared, great value evening meal. In summary, we had an awesome time!

We had such a great vacation at the Palm Bay CLub, The private beach is amazing and is a must with such busy public beaches close by, The unit we stayed in was very nice, clean, and loaded with everything anyone would need to have a great vacation, Check in and check out was super simple and not a hassle at all, Nice pool very close to the unit, and just jump in the car drive across the road and park in the amazing covered parking area and your at the beach in no time, The sunsets were breathtaking and we loved our stay! no complaints at all!! and would love to stay again!!!!

Exactly as expected!!

  • 5 of 5

Condo was very nicely decorated, immaculately clean, and well furnished. We stayed with our four kids (14, 12, 9, & 6). Everyone had a great time. We enjoyed having the pool so close and the beach within walking distance. The beach was well maintained with plenty of chairs & loungers available for everyone. We enjoyed the bay side for morning sunrises with coffee and beach side for evening sunsets with wine! Siesta was very relaxed and we found plenty to do with the family. Just the break we needed from our busy schedule! Thanks for a great experience!

This was out first time visiting Siesta Key & also our first time using VRBO. We are a family of four, two boys aged 15 & 9, that drove from Canada. It was one of our best vacations!! Bridget & Mark were soo great to deal with, gave us so much information & always were available for questions. Their condo was spotless, even nicer than the pictures, nicely decorated...just so welcoming! My boys loved that they had a walk in closet AND their bathroom was right off their bedroom (ensuite) It had everything we needed..yes even wine corks;) The view from the balcony is beautiful. Being close to the back pool & pier along the intercoastal waterway was awesome! We would swim, have lunch or a drink at poolside and our boys would fish and swim & we'd watch the boats coming and going along with the dolphins! We went to the beach a couple times but my boys loved the back waterway pool area so they could fish! It was also so close to the condo & was perfect for our family! Was nice to have the fresh water pool near the office and we played tennis and also used the games room. We checked out Venice & Turtle beach & they were okay, drop offs right away, sand hot...we def. got spoiled at Siesta Beach, quartz sand, cool to the feet and soo soft! We checked out some restaurants, and Myakka State Park and also took in a baseball game! It was nice also that The Palm Bay Club has their own private area on the beach because there was lots of chairs and it was always clean and ready for us first thing in the am! Night time sunsets are breathtaking! I had inquired about several condos and did alot of research, and in the end it was Bridget & Mark's condo that I chose for my family and I am so glad I did, absolutely no regrets!!! I would highly recommend Unit #334 and I can not wait until we plan our next family vacation to come back!! Thank you again soo very much Bridget & Mark!!!! My family and myself had a very memorable vacation at Siesta Key and staying in your condo:)
