Our Condo at Siesta Key is directly on the Gulf of Mexico. When we say directly, we mean directly and not merely a Gulf “View” or a long car ride or a long walk to the Gulf. We call it “Paradise” and you could not choose a nicer location. Siesta Key is 7-8 miles long and we are located on the southern most private end of Siesta Key (see the maps on our website). Our Condo is on the top (3rd floor, we are not a high rise), so no one can be above you and the views of the beach and the Gulf are terrific from our Lanai. We are in close proximity to the elevator/stairs which provides the entry from the parking lot (exclusive assigned pa...rking space) and the entry to the beach and we are a short walk to the heated pool.
Our HOA and our insurance require minimum 7 day rentals. Our guest rentals commence at 4:00 PM on the beginning Saturday and conclude at 9:00 AM on the departing Saturday and we cannot rent for partial weeks. In order to maintain the highest standards for our Condo, we do not permit smoking or pets in our Condo.
Notwithstanding our expensive upgrades, we still rent at the HOA minimum rent. We do agree to make a prorata refund in the event of a mandatory evacuation by a governmental authority for a hurricane.
We bought our Condo in April of 2012 because we believe it has the most unique setting anywhere with the Gulf of Mexico on one side and Blind Pass Lagoon and the entrance to the Inland Waterway on the other side. Turtle Beach is fairly narrow which makes the Fisherman’s Cove condos the closest to the Gulf and permits our guests to actually listen to the surf from open windows. The two buildings in the Fisherman’s Cove Condos were originally built in 1959 and 1969 and only a few of them have been upgraded.
During 2012, we completed a major renovation of our Condo to a standard suitable for us to make it our ultimate retirement home. We have a beautiful Master Bedroom with a king size bed and a large window directly on the Gulf and a newly renovated tiled private bath and a 33” HDTV with its own DVD player. Our Guest Bedroom has 2 single beds and a updated private bath and its own 27” television. New carpet was installed in our bedrooms in April, which completes the replacement of all of the original flooring in our Condo. Our new kitchen has new wood cabinets and granite tops, new appliances (side by side refrigerator, icemaker, water filter, smooth top convection range, dishwasher, disposal, spacemaker microwave) with new tile floors. Our kitchen is fully stocked with equipment including a new drip coffee maker with a permanent filter, toaster and many other small appliances. Our living room has new tile floors, dining for 4, a leather couch and easy chair, with a wall unit containing a 40” HDTV with a blu-ray player and stereo/mp3 players. Our living room leads to a beautiful tiled lanai with a modern panoramic window on the Gulf, which also has dining for 4. Our new washer and dryer located in a laundry room/walk-in closet adjoining the Master Bed Room is very easy to operate and avoids the use of the shared coin laundry. Very few condos have their own washer and dryer.
We also provide an iron, ironing board, hair dryer and lots of other items for your use, including beach chairs and umbrellas and beach toys. Our HOA also provides boat slips on Blind Pass Lagoon and there is a boat rental facility in close proximity.
We had a recent tenant who had a great time catching fish in the Gulf right in front of our Condo!
There is free WIFI at Fisherman’s Cove.
As a result of our unique location and the important upgrades to our Condo, it is very popular, so advance booking is recommended. We are receiving numerous inquiries for rentals, especially since we have published our new upgrades and photos internationally, and as a matter of fairness, our policy is to accept the first actual booking we receive for each weekly or monthly rental.
In addition, to our on-site agent who has regular office hours on-site, we live in Venice, only 30 minutes away and are available to assist tenants with any questions, etc. To confirm a booking we need to have full contact information (names, addresses, telephone numbers, email, ranges of guest ages, etc.) for all occupants for our agent to contact you for a deposit.Read more
