Amazing Location-Short Walk to Beach!!!
Discount for 3 months or more!!! Walk less than 10 minutes to the white sands of Siesta beach (Gulf of Mexico) just over the bridge, or to many island restaurants, marina and shops where you can rent absolutely anything for your outdoor activities and adventures. Walk to the opposite direction and you will find fashion shopping (Marshalls, Ross & Stein Mart) and grocery stores. Many fishing spots in close walking distance and many golf courses nearby. In 2012 Siesta Key's beaches were rated #1 in the US by Dr. Leatherman aka Dr. Beach. The location is why we purchased this condo because even without a car you can enjoy many of the beauty and amenities Sarasota and Siesta Key have to offer. If you need, the bus stop is right in front of this 2 bedroom/2 bath bright and cozy condo which is situated on the second floor for privacy and comfort. Steps from Siesta key, you can take advantage of the electric 'tip' taxies that can take you anywhere you want to go on the Island for a tip, especially for a night out of dancing and bar hopping to the "Village".Hop on the Tip taxi for a convenient and inexpensive way to travel and drink all you want!
This cute condo is equipped with all the conveniences you would find at home and has a Flat screen TV in each room. WIFI is also available so that you or the children are always connected and have something to do. The condo is in a small 7 unit complex which is a rare find in Sarasota where very large and congested resort like complexes are the norm. The complex includes a pool to cool you off after coming back from the beach.
A few minutes of driving , you will find the beauty, arts and culture of Downtown Sarasota, or just cross over the Ringling bridge to Lido Key and explore the trendy high end shops of St. Armand circle, and if shopping is your thing, Costco, Target, Wal Mart, and several malls are all so so close to this condo. Ellenton "outlet" stores about half an hour drive, Busch Gardens in Tampa about an hour drive, and Disney in Orlando is about 1.45 hours drive and the list goes on and on. What ever you and your family are looking for you are sure to find it here and make great memories on your next vacation adventure.

Great two bedroom condo located near the beach. This well equipped condo is located a short walk away from a gorgeous beach (10 minute walk). My family of four rented this condo for a week of great Florida weather with many things to do. Many restaurants are close by, bike, boat, kayak rentals are located just across the bridge.
The condo is nicely equipped with everything you'll need. Large TVs located in living room and both bedrooms with several DVDs to watch if you choose to do so. The kitchen is very well stocked with everything you need if you want to cook a nice meal. We cooked a great steak meal using the bbq located on the balcony with ample pots, pans, dishes, etc to finish things off. We had access to everything needed for a great day at the beach - cooler, ice packs, beach chairs, umbrella, toys for kids, and a great beach cart to use to make the trip easy if you choose to walk.
The interior of the condo was nicely decorated and all the furnishings was cozy and comfortable. The beds were very comfy. The bathrooms and showers were very clean and nicely finished. The condo unit has a small but nice pool which is great to finish off the day at the beach! As mentioned earlier, there are many things to do in the Sarasota area. We did an awesome kayak trip, lunch at St. Armands Circle, went to Tampa Bay Rays game, a day trip to Clearwater (must go to Frenchy's on the beach for lunch/dinner) followed by a Tampa Bay Lightning game... lots of fun! We will plan another trip Sarasota and this condo in the future :)

This condo is a short (about 1/2 mile) walk from Siesta Key. You walk across the drawbridge that separates Sarasota from the Key, and the beach is across the road! You can also drive, and there is a beach access with parking very close by too. This is handy if you have lots of stuff, coolers, beach umbrellas, etc. Nearby is a small grocery store,a drugstore with a post office,and many restaurants, bike rentals, etc. Many days during the high tourist season you can walk to the beach faster than you can drive there!
The condo itself is in a small, very quiet complex. It is an upstairs unit so there are stairs, they can be hard to manage with luggage, etc., and probably not good for anyone with mobility issues. The kitchen is small, but really well equipped. We had everything we needed to cook and entertain with. The front lanai is screened in with a ceiling fan, which makes it pleasant for reading,etc. There is a big screen tv in the living area, as well as both bedrooms - my husband was in heaven! Towels and sheets are very nice and abundant, as are beach towels. There are even very nice hairdriers in each bathroom. The bathrooms are small, but nice. The bath in the master bedroom has a really nice walk-in shower, and there is a jetted tub in the other bathroom. The complex has a small pool, which we never used, but did go out and sit in the pool area in the evening a couple of times.
Overall we had a great stay! The location just can't be beat! There is a grocery store and a large shopping area a short drive away, and we went into downtown Sarasota often for dinner, art shows and the Saturday farmers market which is wonderful! I would highly recommend this unit to anyone who wants to avoid the hustle and bustle of Siesta Key, especially the traffic - but still wants to have easy access to the beach.
