We offer high thread-count cotton bed sheets, bath towels and beach towels. Bed mattress is extra firm. Maximum occupancy in unit: 2 people. Sorry, no extra guests allowed.
Guests have access to tennis court, clubhouse, swimming pool, fishing pier, grill area (near fishing pier). Sorry, there is no private beach access. Guests can walk half-mile south to use public-access entrance to Crescent Beach or go 1 mile north to Siesta Key Public Beach.
Interaction with guests
The best way to reach me is by email, though I am often available on my cell phone.
Other things to note
The best thing to do on Siesta Key is head to the beach. The beach sand is made mostly of quartz and it is as white and powdery as snow (and it never gets hot, except for the sand spread over pavement by the parking lots).
Siesta Key Public Beach, rated No. 1 beach in America in 2011, is 1 mile north of our condo complex. There is public parking. There are bathrooms, showers and a concession stand at the public beach. Beach umbrellas and chairs are available to rent, but two umbrellas and two beach chairs will cost around $70. We provide beach chairs (they are replaced about once a year).
Additionally, up and down the Key there are public access points to the beach, but they have limited parking and no nearby public restrooms. They are marked by light blue signs with numbers. There is one such access point a half-mile south of our unit, just steps away from the intersection of Stickney Point and Midnight Pass Roads. It is great for morning or evening walks on the beach.
**On a clear day, you must go to the beach at sunset. It’s beautiful.
**Often on Sundays, as sunset approaches, locals form a drum circle at the Public Beach. It’s a few dozen people playing drums, and children (and some adults) dance. Others just enjoy the repetitive beat.
**If you enjoy a casual drink, ice cream or souvenir shopping, check out Siesta Village, a few miles north of the condo. It’s a collection of restaurants and shops. There is a bicycle rental shop in the village.
**Kayaking is popular, especially in the Bay. You can search “kayak tours” and “sarasota” on the web if you are interested.
**There are higher-end restaurants and shops at St. Armand’s Circle, about a 15-minute drive north of Siesta Key (take Tamiami Trail, Rte. 41). It is a popular place to visit on nearby Lido Key.
**Some indoor places to visit in Sarasota in case it rains:
Mote Marine Aquarium
The Ringling Museum of Art (mentioned last year in the Financial Times)
Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall
