It sleeps up to six with one king bed in the bedroom and two queen-sized sleeper sofas in the apartment. There is a room that can be closed off with a large accordion door which may serve as a private den and/or second bedroom containing a desk and one of the sleeper-sofas. The kitchen is fully equipped and the apartment shares a washing machine and dryer with only one other apartment. There are two televisions, a Blue-Ray/DVD player, cable TV and in unit Internet. This attractive complex has 2 beach cabanas, beach chairs and a courtyard with shuffleboard. There is large heated swimming pool, recreation room with ping pong, a pool table and air hockey. There are many shops, restaurants, attractions close by on Siesta Key. Busch Gardens/Adventure Island is one hour away and Disney/Epcot two and one half hours away.
This is our second visit to Island House and we were not disappointed. We knew exactly what to expect and stayed in the same unit - very nicely updated. Management of the resort is top notch and use of technology is cutting edge. Landscaping and facilities maintained very well despite the age of the property. WIFI available at pool and common areas in addition to inside the unit. Can't wait to return!
The condo was spotless. The view was amazing and the beach really beautiful. The people in the office were extremely friendly and helpful. Our coffee pot wasn't working and they had a new one in our condo within a couple of hours. The furnishings in the cond were very nice. My only complaint is that the bed linens were old and worn. Overall we had a great time and loved the condo. Would go again to the same condo complex but may bring my own sheets. They also have plenty of beach chairs available. Thank you!!
We had not been to Siesta Key in 22+ years but were frequent visitors prior to that time. We were pleased that nothing had changed! While the complex is older, this particular unit was completely redecorated and upgraded - completely satisfied. Additionally, the pool area (just a short walk from the unit) has also been renovated/upgraded as have the walkways within the complex. The staff was exceptionally nice and laid back - we had a marvelous time. There is a washer and dryer on each floor (although you need to search - we didn't find them until the third day) and the 2 units on each floor share the machines - absolutely no problem. Beach area was great too.
Absolutely no complaints - enthusiastically recommend this unit (unless you plan to rent during the time we want to return ...).
We have been going to Siesta Key for 25 years and have probably stayed at 7 or 8 different condominiums. All of them have been very nice, but this one is without a doubt our favorite. Great location. Great beach. Very friendly people and not too crowded. The sleep sofas were a little uncomfortable to sleep on, but that's ok, as we didn't really go there to sleep. I would highly recommend.
