Dr. Beach selects Siesta Beach as the #1 Beach in the USA:
On May 26, 2011 Dr. Stephen Leatherman (Dr. Beach) ranked Siesta Beach as #1 in the Nation after spending the last two years as #2. "The quartz sand is like sugar" Leatherman said. "It's Super Soft and Super Fine", it doesn't blow around and doesn't get hot. On April 6, 2003 a Travel Channel (Part of Discovery Networks) film crew shot footage on the beach for a 1 hour segment to be aired later in 2003. Siesta Beach was chosen to the "Elite" list by a panel of beach experts reviewing criteria such as cleanliness, sand quality and surrounding area. The secret of Siesta Key's sand is that the ancient sand crystals have been worn smooth over time. The sand is clean, powder soft to the touch, free of shell particles and cool on the feet. This is not the first time that Siesta Beach will win an award. In a USA Today poll Siesta Beach was voted one of the 3 top USA beaches. Conde Nast Traveller Magazine ranked Siesta Beach as being one of the "Best of the Best" in 1999. In 1987 the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution gave Siesta Beach the designation of having the "Whitest, Finest Beach Sand in the World", a title that still stands today.

Thanks for your review.
Contact us next year within 60 days of arrival for a Last Minute Discount if not rented.
Not sure what you mean by limited TV coverage. The only channels we don't get are PAY movie channels such HBO, Starz, Max etc.. We get almost 300 channels.

Memorable and Relaxing Trip

Our recent stay at this villa in Siesta Key was wonderful! The villa was steps away from the pool and a short walk to the beach. The villa was beautiful and colorful and more importanly it was home away from home. This was our first vacation where we rented a home. It was comfortable and cozy and very relaxing to come home to such a pretty place. The villa had everything we needed to make our vacation relaxing. This vacation will go down in the history books as such a nice vacation. All the comforts of home away from home. We had never rented a vlla or condo for a vacation and now I believe ths will be the preferred way to go. The ability to do laundry and cook a meal in a kithcen was fabulous! We were sad to leave such a beautiful place and we were sad to leave the villa as well. I highly recommend this way to travel. We will do it again and I hope not too long from now.

Owner's reply:

Thanks for your review.
It's always great when people take the time to say nice things about our place.
We now have 3 condos on Siesta Key. Two 2BR's and one 1BR. They are all on the beach side of Siesta Key so there is no road to cross to get to the wonderful beach.....
As always contact us for Last Minute Discounted rentals if you decide to come at the last minute.

My family and I have been coming to Florida for the past 20 years. This two week trip by far was the best. The condo was very clean, spacious, and a great location. We are already planning another visit over Christmas. We can't wait to get back!

A wonderful experience

Having just retired, I just wanted to enjoy the sun, the beach, and of course the fresh fish, and oysters, that Florida has to offer, with my wife, and son who joined us for a week. This place gave us, all that and more. The apartment was great. It had just been painted with soothing colors and some of the appliances had recently been replaced. Suffering from allergies, we liked the fact that the apartment had ceramic tiles all over, and was nicely decorated without many things cluttering the place and that could be the source of dust. Having rented the apartment for a month, we tended to mostly eat in the apartment especially since we found a fish market, Big Water Fish Market, close by whose owner , Scott, and friend Brian, brought in fresh fish and oysters every day. Even though there were enough dishes and cooking utensils, could have used separate pots for cooking pasta and sauce and a different coffee maker (as per my wife...personally I do not drink coffee). The dining room table was great and hardly used the soft couches as we enjoyed the arm chair more. The beach and the white crystalline sand were great!!! My wife liked the fact that the sand was not hot and was not blown about by the wind, and having two artificial hips she had no problem walking on the sand. Chairs and loungers were provided and to our amazement bikes could also ride on the beach! Even though the unit (one of 30 I believe) was further from the beach, being an end unit it offered a great view of the gulf and the city, and spent many evening enjoying the beatiful sunset. from the balcony. There were many books available and enticed me back to read. I even read two books after so many years! The owners, Lutz and Ruth, were very courteus and prompt in responding to calls and emails. One day Verizon had problems with the telephone connection and we contacted Lutz via email. He promptly replied that he had contacted the rental management and Verizon to expedite repairs, and after the repair he called to ensure that all was fixed to our satisfaction. Summary: Greatly enjoyed our stay in this unit at Siesta Key and would definely return. On a scale of 1 to 10 , Siesta Key and this unit rate a 9 1/2. ( I do not like to give 10 to anyone) PS: Kudos to the Excelsior management for the excellent service provided, from the start to finish having just received the deposit cheque back.

Best Beach Ever!!

Flew down in July with my family and had a very good experience. Our condo was on the beach side so no crossing the street which is very busy during the day. The condo was very spacious and had its own washer and dryer which was very conveinient. Also had tennis courts, workout room, and a pool table that my boys used during down time. However the best part is obviously the beach. The sand and water quality is great and the water is cystal clear and you can see the bottom on a sunny day. The waves are very small unless its storming almost like swimming in a swimming pool. The only small complaint I had was wish the condo supplied beach umbrellas like some I have stayed at in the past. When you fly you cant bring your own so we just bnought a small cheap one and left it there for the next person that needs it.Also you better get there early if it is during the busy season because the chairs go fast. There are plenty of places to eat even though some places are a bit pricey. Will definately be going back next year.

Great condo!

We just spent 4 nights in this condo last week and it was a great place to stay. The photos don't do it justice. It was very clean, spacious and nicely furnished...everything has been recently updated. We were a short walk down to the beach and pool (it's on the beach side). Everything we needed was in the condo & more! We will definitely be back to this condo for another extended vacation...thoroughly enjoyed it!!

This was the second year of vacationing in Siesta Key. First time staying in this condo. We had a fantastic stay! The weather couldn't have been better. We had a thunderstorm early one morning, but it didn't ruin the day. The condo was the greatest. Couldn't have asked for a nicer place without having to kill the wallet! Thanks!

Fabulous Siesta Key Condo!

Me, my husband, and two other people enjoyed our stay at this awesome condo! Everything you needed to be comfortable, nice view of ocean and the best part being right on the beach and just a short walk away. The beach is fantastic! The condo is fantastic! We really enjoyed our first trip to Siesta Key and I would definitely, without question, come back and rent this condo again.

Superb Accomodations

My family and I have stayed on Siesta many times, this condo was the best furnished and most updated unit we have ever stayed in. We will be back again!

My family and I had a glorious week in Siesta Key. The weather was beautiful. We had one day of rain which turned into a great shopping day at the outlet mall. The condo was great. It was all updated and my family felt right at home, which is great when you are on vacation. I would recommend this location to anyone who is interested in going to Siesta Key. If you have never been to Siesta Key you are in for an amazing time if you love clean, white sand that never gets hot. The gulf is clam so it is easy to swim in and the dolphins come close enough to the shore that you can see them often, especially in the morning.Stay in the US and feel like you are in the Carribean!!!

Family Spring Break

The condo was everything advertised. It was clean, practical and the location was great. The kids loved the pool, hot tub and the beach is fantastic.

Condo was great, beach was terrific, weather actually co-operated. One complaint/suggestion...why not key the beach/pool access alike? Also, with a family of 4, two keys are not enough. Definitely will repeat. The Green Family, Thunder Bay

This condo was totally renovated since our last visit and it is awesome! From the newly tiled floors, showers, solid counter tops in bath and kitchen, this condo looks new. New furniture also.It is right on the beach with a great view from the balcony and having access to the bay side is great also. We spent several mornings and evenings watching the boats and dolphins. We can't wait to go back! Best deal in Siesta Key!!!

    We just love Siesta Key. The Beach in front of our condos (1BR and 2BR) is pure white quartz that does not get hot in the summer. It's always cool to walk on. Because it's quartz it also doesn't blow around in the wind. This white quartz is only available from 420 Beach Rd at the north to Point of Rocks...
