Excellent property, excellent location and excellent owner

  • 5 of 5

First, the condo itself is better than the pictures show, in my opinion. There is much more room than I thought. Two separate bedrooms, bathrooms, living room area, dining area and well equipped kitchen.

Everything was very clean and very comfortable. I didn't think we would use the washer and dryer, but we used it quite a bit.

Hardwood floors were very nice and made it easier to clean daily so you don't constantly have that sand on the bottom of your feet feeling.

That is the inside...outside, less than a minute walk to either pool or beach, access to gas or charcoal grills....Pool and beach have chairs you can use....condo had a couple more chairs and a beach umbrella. Other than sunscreen, soft side cooler...I don't think there was much, if anything we had to buy or bring to go to the beach.

I really like SKOB (Siesta Key Oyster Bar)...Captain Curts was very touristy, but food was actually not bad. Turtles on Turtle beach was not good. The Seafood market next to 7-11 had OK grouper tacos. Their seafood market side was expensive, but the shrimp and mahi mahi were fresh...the Red Rock shrimp were awesome on the grill.

The only problem with the area (in my opinion) is the lack of a beach front restaurant with a view with good food.

Finally, the owner was fantastic. Excellent communication, very eager to help out and make sure you have everything you need. I felt like I was staying with family!

If I was going to find anything negative to say at all (and I have to dig deep), I would say the knives in the kitchen need sharpening...they were really dull. And there were two nights that people in the neighboring property to the north were out and playing music and being very loud until well after midnight. You see security drive by every 10 minutes during daylight hours, I was a little disappointed that I had to call to ask that the neighbors be asked to quiet down.

Gorgeous grounds, 1 min walk to the beach, convenient location, 2 minute drive to village, pool

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay owner in touch and great service. The best part was the short walk to the beach, which made it extremely convenient to carry your load of beach things or go for a quick swim. There was also a very nice pool-we didn't use much but it was nice. The grounds were very well maintained, with beautiful flowers and kept clean. WE were on the gulf side of the property and we did go for a walk and checked out the pier, but did not fish as we did not have any equipment. The condo itself was spacious, well equipped, clean, beautifully decorated. The two bathrooms were recently remodeled and gorgeous!! The master bedroom had a nice walk in closet to spread out all things. There was a closet of things that was pretty well equipped with beach things. There were plenty of beach towels for our party of three. We did not utilize the cart service that is "free" to get to the village as we rented a car and it was just as easy to drive ourselves. It was a 2 minute card drive. Parking was pretty easy to find a spot and the town was super cute. I recommend the salmon at the HUB-it was amazing! We did not eat out that much but that restaurant was the best we went to on our trip by far. We charted a fishing boat thru CB Outfitters and literally got at least 40 fish in our 4 hour excursion-best fishing ever. The captain was very friendly and helped out 8 year old fish like a champ! It was pricey but worth it if you want a great fishing experience..we even reeled in a shovel head shark but it cut the line and got away. We also did a kayak trip thru the mangroves with Sarasota Explorers and saw dolphin in the bay an watched 2 very active manatee new a boat dock, then kayaked straight thru the mangroves trails. we also did a pontoon boat thru Explorers to a sand bar and used nets to capture tiny fish, starfish, and invertebrates, and they talked about the things we caught on the way back to the dock. This was near Mote aquarium which was cool too. We drove to Anna Maria Island for the day to get dinner-and ate on the beach at the Sandbar-dont go there it was horrible I actually had to send my food back (which I never do) but it was a cute beachy town reminded me more of OBX. There is a lot of shopping near the condo, a publix is 2 miles away for groceries. We checked out the public beach- they spent $ on renovations- GO Sun night when they have the drum circle-its a good time, bring cooler and chairs, good people watching
