This beautiful 2nd floor condo is located in Bldg 2 which directly faces the awesome Gulf of Mexico and it’s incredible evening sunset is waiting for you. The neutral, sandy tones of this very well furnished Florida decor condo are soothing, relaxing, and will instantly put you in the 'Florida state of mind.'

The open screen porch extending from the living room offers you a view of the circular pool, hot tub. Beyond that lies our large sun deck featuring lounge chairs, tables, gas grilles and a gazebo… then on to our world renowned Siesta Key Beach, and finally the glorious Gulf of Mexico. Lounge chairs are conveniently provided on our private beach.

Dedicated covered parking is just below the condo and can easily be reached by the nearby staircase, or elevator, just down the hall located next to the handy laundry facility. Additional gas grilles are nearby, as is the tennis court.

The condo features two bedrooms with walk-in closets, plush mattresses, (king in the master bedroom and two twins in the second bedroom). A crib can be rented through the office for a nominal fee.

About Dorothy Balchunas

I lived on Siesta Key at the time that I bought my condo at Siesta Dunes. Shortly thereafter, I moved to San Diego for financial opportunity reasons while, as a widow, I was raising 3 young children by myself. However, my heart never left this place that I love so much. So, 20 years later and upon retirement, I immediately returned to Florida and now live in Destin.

Why Destin, FL? That is a sweet and wonderful story of how I met my husband....maybe we can share that story some day. During various times of the year, we

(my husband, children and now grandchildren!) enjoy and treasure our time here at the condo when it is available.,, so it is, in fact, our second home.

Dorothy Balchunas purchased this condo in 1980

Why Dorothy Balchunas chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

Why this property? Because this is my second home, where my heart returns to, and where I take pride in sharing it with others.

What makes this condo unique

Location! Location! Location! Not only within the confines of the finest condominium on Siesta Key, but also my particular Gulf front view.

Great property

  • 5 of 5

We loved Siesta Key and Siesta Dunes. The beach is gorgeous and just a short walk from the condo. The condo was great. It's spacious and very nicely decorated. We cook and the kitchen had everything we needed. We liked the covered parking and appreciated the elevator. The heated salt water pool is wonderful. We enjoyed breakfast and lunch on the screened balcony and loved watching the sunset over the gulf every night. We will be back next year!

Fabulous Find

  • 5 of 5

Truly enjoyable vacation on Siesta Key. The condo is perfect . Immaculately clean and well kept grounds , pool, and surroundings. You can watch the sunrise from one window and the sunset from another. Great location to enjoy all of Siesta Key. We would return any time.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This was our family's first time renting a condo, having stayed at all inclusives down south and hotels in Florida. This was a gem! Beautifully finished, updated, clean and spacious. We enjoyed it so much that we wouldn't think twice to rent this property again. The unit had everything we needed, and the location made it so easy to run in and grab a quick bite if we were poolside on lounging by the beach. I would highly recommend this particular unit to anyone who wants options when it comes to meals (eat in or eat out), extra space when travel often requires you book a separate room for your teenage kids, and a true sense of home away from home.

Wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We vacationed here for Thanksgiving with our three children. We have already booked to go again this year, we decided this will be our new family tradition and place to stay! The condo is very clean, nicely decorated, updated throughout, and equipped with everything you need. With a short walk to the beach and the pool in sight, our children were able to hop back and forth (We felt comfortable letting them do so). The sun deck is beautiful and a great place to watch the sun go down. There are chairs available for your use on the beach at no cost, and water sports equipment delivered and set up on the beach. We really enjoyed our stay here and will be returning!!

We just got back from our vacation and could not have asked for a better experience. After our first night in the condo, we were already talking about making it our annual summer vacation spot. The condo was impeccable, fully equipped and the bed was VERY comfortable. You immediately feel at home, and well, nothing beats witnessing the beautiful sunsets on the beach! The owner is a great lady and very attentive to her guests' needs. Can't wait 'til next year!

Top-notch condo with awesome view!

  • 5 of 5

We were extremely pleased with this condo and whole facility. The condo was spacious, clean and well equipped. The grounds, beach and pool area were well kept and very nice. Loved being able to watch the sunsets off the beautiful sun deck off the beach! Just as pictured on line, this condo had a great view of the pool area, pretty grounds as well as ocean and beach. So many times you find what you see on line misrepresented. Not only was this condo accurately represented on line - but it was even above our expectations. Great place to stay in siesta key!

Siesta Key rightly deserves being awarded the world's most beautiful beach. The sand is a powdery white sand that must be seen to be believed. The sunsets are breathtakingly beautiful. Siesta Dunes sits in the midst of all this beauty, and my beachfront condo is the birds eye view to this and more. Sarasota offers innumerable things to do and visit, whether it be cultural or outdoor enjoyment. To name a few such offerings: Mote Marine Lab (fascinating for all ages), Selby Botanical Gardens, Ringling Museum of Art, Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall, Sarasota Jungle Gardens, live theater, Myakka State Park, Ringling Circus Museum, and much more. Restaurants? Fabulous food abounds!
