This was our second time staying at Dan's place and it has done nothing but get better! The condo is VERY roomy/clean and has everything you need! Very friendly neighbors and the washers and dryers work excellent. The president of the condo was also there the same week we were and she is an awesome individual. The island has a free trolley available and will take you ANYWHERE on the island as they only work for tips! So those of you who like the night life can enjoy a safe night! Highly recommend this condo to everyone, whether you have kids or just looking to get away with some friends its a good all around fit!
This condo is in great shape. It was very clean, has all the comforts of home and is much roomier than the photos implied. The location is just a few minutes walk from beautiful Crescent beach and there are plenty of shops, convenience stores and eating places within an easy walk, plus the Siesta Key Village and public beach is only a short drive away. The location was great and is very quiet, as advertised. We were four adults and felt like we had the entire complex to ourselves. With the location even traffic noise was at an absolute minimum. Dan, the owner, was very helpful before during and after check-in. Thanks Dan. We experienced two problems during our stay. We picked a bad weather week and had frequent rainy days but always found places to go and things to do which were all very close. There are some great restaurants nearby. Second problem was the twin beds in the second bedroom. They may be ok for young children but they're not comfortable for adults. I would highly recommend this condo and the location to anyone looking for a reasonably priced vacation. Hope you pick a better weather week.
Beautiful beach close by. Condo was clean and quiet. Everything you need from towels to dishes were supplied! Grocery stores close by and Siesta Key Village a short drive away with lots of nice restaurants!
Great location, less than 5 minute walk to the beach. The apartment was perfect for our needs. Shopping, restaurants, pharmacy, groceries and take out places within a few blocks. There is an excellent ice cream shop nearby. Very important to us: it was QUIET!

The condo is well equipped, clean and far more spacious than the pictures show. Both bedrooms are a very good size and the living space is great. There are plenty of towels and bed linen.You are asked not to leave more than one days worth of washing so you will need to use the laundry rooms one of which is at the bottom of the stairs to the condo. This room was not always open and we did not have a key so our first load of washing was done at the other laundry which was a little to far when carrying your washing in the heat. We had to be a little careful when opening wardrobe doors and they stuck a little bit and did not slide as easily as you would expect.The kitchen is a really good size for a holiday rental and has plenty of cutlery and crockery, though a couple of pieces had not been left as clean as they could have been. We used the pool most evenings and had it to ourselves each time. The condo is just a few minutes walk from a the beach, with public access both to the left and right of the condo but we used the private access directly opposite to the Sea Winds complex. The beach is lovely and quieter than nearer the village but there were still plenty of people around. Siesta Key village is a little far to walk to in the heat but is a short drive away, parking can be hard a the weekend, or you can use the tip only taxi service. Next to the complex there are shops, restaurants and hire shops. If you have a car you are in a great location to get out and about. There are several state parks to visit, Venice is easy to get to, Tampa is just over a hour away and we also took a trip to the Everglades which was three hours each way but well worth the early start. Our only slight issue is the condo does not have any outside space to sit but there is plenty of seating around the pool. Overall the condo was much better than we expected and was in a great location for visiting the Gulf coast and further afield. If we were to visit this area again we would love to stay at this condo.
