    Casa Siesta makes fun in the sun so easy! The 2-bedroom, ground-floor condo is just a short walk from the powdery white sands of Crescent Beach and the azure waters of the Gulf of Mexico. No need to load up the car and battle traffic whenever you want to hit the beach: You can simply roll out of bed and stroll down there first thing in the morning, and then you can head to and from the condo whenever you like throughout the rest of the day—so convenient! Please note, there is a 2-week minimum stay. The sunny condo offers plenty of other conveniences too. For instance, while there are numerous restaurants nearby, serving up everything from lobster to pad thai, sometimes eating in is more relaxing (and more affordable). That’s why Casa Siesta has a drop-leaf dining table that seats 4, complemented by wonderfully padded chairs you’ll enjoying lingering in long after the meal is over. There’s also a table for 2 on the enclosed front porch. With its screened-in wall of windows and its ceiling fan, this space enables you to enjoy the benefits of alfresco dining (fresh air! sunshine!) without the downside (bugs and oppressive heat). What’s more, the condo’s kitchen has all the appliances, cookware, and tableware you’ll need, whether you’re cooking 3 squares a day or microwaving the occasional doggy bag from the previous night’s restaurant meal. The appliances are new, by the way, as are the tiled floors (so cool underfoot!) and the air-conditioning. The color scheme of Casa Siesta’s airy living room certainly takes inspiration from the beach, with its blue sofas, sandy rug, and cloud-white furnishings. It’s a lovely space for sprawling out and relaxing after a day of snorkeling, parasailing, and jet-skiing. The kids will have plenty of room to spread out with their Legos and action figures, and the comfy roll-arm sofas can accommodate the whole gang for movie night. Casa Siesta’s 2 bedrooms also offer ample opportunity for rest and relaxation. The master bedroom has a spacious king-size bed. Prop yourself up on the lofty pillows, stretch out, and watch TV, read a book, or take advantage of the free WiFi to post pictures online of your day’s adventures before slipping between the sheets and drifting to sleep… The 2nd bedroom is furnished with 2 twin beds, making it perfect for the kids. The condo’s bathroom was recently updated, with a stone vanity top, lots of storage, and a tiled shower with a built-in seat among its amenities. You’ll find plenty of freshly laundered towels waiting when you arrive, as well as made-up beds, so you can leave your own linens at home. In addition, Casa Siesta has beach towels and even beach chairs for your use—how thoughtful is that? As lovely as Casa Siesta is, its best feature is no doubt its location. Crescent Beach has been called “the most private nonprivate beach” for its lack of crowds. At its southern end—just a 10-minute walk from the condo!—is Point of Rocks, popular with novice snorkelers for its relatively shallow waters and with snorkelers in general for its coral formations and marine life—fish, crabs, even the occasional small octopus. And should you ever tire of the beach (hard to believe, we know!), you’re just a short drive from the golf courses, amusement parks, and museums of nearby Sarasota. For a carefree, relaxed, easy-breezy holiday in the sun, you can’t beat Casa Siesta. So make sure others don’t beat you to it; book your stay today!

    Nestled on the southern tip of Siesta Key is our ground-floor condo, Bay Tree Club 106. Located in an oceanfront complex, it will pamper you with brand-new HDTVs, spacious and well-appointed rooms, and a sunny lanai overlooking grassy grounds. 14-day minimum stay required. The Gulf of Mexico is just steps away from Bay Tree Club 106, and Little Sarasota Bay just a short drive to the east. One of the most beautiful areas on the coast, Siesta Key offers pure white sands, clear water, and perfect weather much of the year. No wonder it was named America’s Best Beach in 2011!! Bay Tree Club 106 will beguile you from the moment you step onto the lanai, just off the living room. This large, light-filled room is furnished with casual seating and dining, with one wall devoted to screened windows and doors looking out at the grounds of the complex. Wander out here first thing in the morning to inhale the balmy sea air and enjoy the sight of seabirds flocking to the beach, and catch the sunset streaking the sky as evening falls. The lanai is a great place to enjoy a good book, talk with friends, and even update your social media (you have free WiFi at Bay Tree Club 106, and it works out here too). Just in from the lanai is the living room, boasting a 52-inch HDTV with VCR and DVD player, as well as ultra-comfy chairs and a sofa that opens into a bed for 2. The cool tiled floor feels great after a day on the warm sands, the ceiling fan circulates the air conditioning perfectly, and the pleasant seafoam-green walls remind you that you’re in the tropics! The lanai is also accessible from the master suite, one of the crowning glories of Bay Tree Club 106. Here you will enjoy a king-sized bed, 52-inch HDTV (wow!), and a huge window flooded with sunshine. Step into the master bath, with a hand-held shower nozzle boasting your choice of water spray. The master suite is nothing short of a sanctuary from all the togetherness and activity of your busy group vacation. Here you can retire early and sleep late! The second bedroom at Bay Tree Club 106 contains 1 Queen and 1 Twin sized beds and a 32-inch HDTV. The polished hardwood floor is ideal for kids’ toys and games, and the second full bathroom (with both a shower and tub option) is convenient to this room. You may be dining out or taking picnics to the beach during your time at Bay Tree Cub 106, but for those meals you enjoy at home, you’ll find 2 great places to dine in the condo. Our dining room is just beyond the living room, with views right out to the grounds past the lanai. It has a large table, able to seat 6 and also makes a good spot for group games too. And there is also a breakfast nook right in the kitchen! While we’re on the subject of the kitchen, you will love this well-stocked, modern room. Even if you don’t intend to lift a single spatula during your vacation, it’s nice to know that you have the full complement of dishes, cookware, glasses, and utensils on hand, just in case you need them. The big, pleasant kitchen at Bay Tree Club 106 offers granite countertops, handsome full-sized appliances, and plenty of space for cooks to stay out of each other’s way! Our condo has everything you need for a stress-free, comfortable vacation in Siesta Key. Our full-sized washer and dryer are ready to keep all those swimsuits and beach towels fluffy and dry, while every bed and bath has linens and towels already provided. There are no stairs to climb or elevators to wait for here – you’re right where the action is, mere moments from the beach! The Bay Tree Club resort has all the amenities your group wants, too. Boat docks are waiting for you here, as well as 2 swimming pools and a big, friendly barbecue and picnic area. The location is ideal and the appointments luxurious. Come stay here soon!

    When you stay at Crescent Street 1138A, you can walk to the east side of Siesta Key in just minutes to catch the sunrise over the Gulf of Mexico. Then later, just before dusk, you can take an equally brief stroll over to the west side of the barrier island to watch the sunset over the gulf! That’s all thanks to Crescent Street’s prime location. A quiet, sandy walkway will take you to Crescent Beach, renowned for its shimmering quartz sand, and to Point of Rocks. This beautiful spot is popular with novice snorkelers for its relatively shallow water—and with snorkelers in general for its coral formations and fish, crabs, even the occasional small octopus. When you’re not snorkeling, fishing, swimming or collecting shells, you can paddleboard, parasail, canoe, or kayak. While Crescent Street’s location is reason enough to make it your Florida home away from home, the 2-bedroom retreat has numerous other charms too. As soon as you drive up to the house, you’ll be won over by the leafy palm trees and well-manicured grounds (not to mention the ample parking). Head around to the back and you’ll find a beautifully paved area with a charcoal grill, plenty of chairs and a table for alfresco dining, and perhaps best of all, a heated in-ground pool, just in case the gulf waters are a little too chilly for your liking. The interior is just as delightful. With its tiled floor, soft color scheme, and large windows framed by shutters to keep out the midday, midsummer heat, the airy living/dining area is everything you want in a Florida getaway. Curl up in the armchair with your tablet to take advantage of the free WiFi, gather everyone together on the well-cushioned couches to watch a movie on the 60” HDTV with the NFL package included, or sprawl out under the ceiling fan for a well-deserved nap—don’t feel shy; you’re on vacation! Another benefit of Crescent Street’s locale is that there are numerous restaurants just a short walk or drive away. But sometimes nothing beats a home-cooked meal, and the spacious kitchen makes cooking a pleasure. It’s equipped with stainless-steel appliances, cookware, and tableware aplenty, plus loads of counter space. There are a handy kitchen table and chairs too, so you can enjoy some quiet time with a book and a snack while waiting for the dough to rise or the water to boil. When it’s time to dig in, bring your feast out to the roomy dining table, which seats 6 in comfort and style. Catching up on your sleep is often a favorite part of a vacation, and Crescent Street’s 2 bedrooms make doing so a cinch. Both bedrooms have a king size bed. Each has a flat-screen TV, a large window so you can wake up to the sunshine and the chirping of wrens and warblers, a ceiling fan, and flanking night stands with lamps—this way one of you can stay up reading while the other drifts to sleep. If you have additional overnight guests, the living room sofa converts to a queen-size bed, enabling Crescent Street 1138A to sleep 6 people in all. When you arrive, you’ll find the beds neatly made up and plenty of freshly laundered towels in the bathroom. For even more convenience, there’s a private washer and dryer—given how often you’ll be jumping in and out of the pool and the gulf, that’ll come in handy for making sure you have enough swimwear for your stay! A charming setting, comfortable furnishings, and a beyond-convenient location: Crescent Street 1138A has it all. So don’t miss out: Book your stay today, before someone else beats you to it! Note, this is a duplex. Unit A is one side of the duplex.

    Located in the Golf Community of Summerfield about 30 minutes from downtown Tampa. Large covered Lanai. Pool is a southern facing pool, so you get lots of sun and this also helps keep the pool temperature warmer. The very spacious covered lanai has 3 access points. French doors from the kitchen, double set of sliding glass doors from the great room, and a set of sliding doors from the master. This home is truly a Florida Pool home with the pool visible from almost all rooms of the home. Feels like a vacation when you walk in the door. Beds, 2 king beds, the master bedroom is a standard king. The guest bedroom has a California King. We have a daybed in the great room that has a trundle so additional sleeping for 2 adults. The sofa is a large sectional. Pets - I accept pets, just need to know how many and the breed (for homeowner insurance purposes). So long as they are not on the list of unallowable breeds I'm usually okay with 2 dogs. No cats as I'm allergic (sorry). The yard is completely fenced with a wooden fence. Pool Area - The large screen enclosure gives you plenty of space to relax and enjoy our beautiful Florida weather. We are having Solar Panels installed in September 2016 - with a Southern facing pool, these panels keep the pool season almost year round. Location - I live about 1/2 mile from the home, so if you need to know anything about the community I'm happy to chat about anything. We are about 2 miles from 3 supermarkets to give you an idea how close items like coffee shops and shopping are. About a 20 minute walk through the paths of the community to Starbucks!

Blessed with one of the sweetest stretches of white sand in the United States, Sarasota deserves its reputation as one of Florida's cherished getaways for snowbirds. Most families are content to whisk away their hours on the broad beach, which serves as a welcome-mat for the Gulf of Mexico waters. Yet, once you arrive at this relaxed seaside enclave in southwest Florida, you'll realize there's so much more for the entire family. 

Sarasota is home to a slew of family-friendly attractions like the touch tank at Mote Aquarium, the aptly named science museum, G.WIZ, the flamingos at Sarasota Jungle Gardens, and shopping and dining at the boutique stores and restaurants at St. Armands Circle. Then there are the natural wonders like the orchids and vast selection of palm trees found at Selby Gardens and the canopy walkway that rides atop the Everglades-like wilderness of Myakka River State Park.
