About the area

Fisherman's Cove is literally the only condo on any of the Florida gulf-coast barrier islands that gives each guest direct beachfront to the west and direct bayfront to the east. Bring your sunscreen - there are miles of beach to explore and search for seashells, or you might prefer to take a snooze in our complimentary beach chairs. Bring your boat - there are ramps within walking distance and free boat docks for guests. If you don't have a boat, you can rent one just down the street. Bring your kayak or canoe - there is a free rack for storage, and a custom made dock for easy launching. If you don't have a kayak or canoe, you can rent one right down the street. Bring your fishing gear - the fishing is great in both the gulf and the bay. If you don't bring your own stuff, you can rent fishing gear close by. Bring your bike, or you can rent one - at the quiet southern end of Siesta Key there are bike lanes on both sides of the shady street that winds through mostly upscale residential neighborhoods. Whatever you do, be ready to relax and enjoy the spectacular sunsets from our third floor lanai - no one on the island has a better view!

Getting around

Since there are so many great restaurants and fun things to do, we choose to rent a car during our visits. However, since there are three dining options within walking distance and public transportation (bus and trolley) that stops at the public beach next door, a rental car is not a necessity. Bicycling is also a viable option. There are comfortable bike lanes on both sides of the quiet street, and numerous dining and drinking options within two miles.

Getting here

There are four primary airports guests use when visiting our condo. The one you select depends largely on where you are coming from and your vacation itinerary. Since there is seldom a significant charge for returning a rental car to a location that is different from where you pick it up, you may also evaluate flying into one airport, and flying out of a different airport. Most of our guests fly into Tampa or Ft. Myers (drive time ~75 minutes). If there are good connections from your city, you might also evaluate flying into Sarasota / Bradenton (drive time ~30 minutes) or Punta Gorda (drive time ~45 minutes). International travelers and guests coming from western U.S. states often fly into Orlando (drive time ~140 minutes).

Interaction with guest

We provide all of our guests with a comprehensive "get acquainted" package that includes the following information: • What’s next – reservation confirmation, payment schedule & your rental agreement • Trip Cancellation / Travel Insurance information • Things to consider bringing with you • Driving directions to condo • Upon arrival – checking in, getting keys from lock-box, parking and condo location • Any problems – numbers to call 24/7 • Condo operations – WiFi, TVs, etc. • Quick supply stop – Coffee for your first morning • Shopping for groceries and adult beverages • Restaurants, meat and fish markets – includes commentary about our favorite dishes at about 30 great restaurants • Things to do – includes many that are free

About the owner

We love beaches, and have traveled the world to explore some of the best. While there is no one-size-fits-all perfect beach, the one thing we've learned is staying directly on the beach is a unique vacation experience that is significantly different from staying even just across the street fro...

“We're heading back, no doubt...”

Reviewed 26 Dec 2016

My family of 3 stumbled across Fish Cove while searching for a vacation destination in Florida. It really looked too good to be true, but I can assure you that it did delivered and surpassed every expectation we had set! I worked to plan our visit for at least a year before our trip. Mr. McWilliams was such a blessing in providing details regarding local cuisine, shopping, and activities. He was very welcoming when I reserved and I always felt comfortable emailing and asking any question/inquiry I had. The beach at Fish Cove is superb (beautiful is an understatement). Everyday, we swam and walked the beach. Oftentimes, dolphins and manatees swam near us!!! We loved the private beach as it was quiet and secluded; it was never too crowded or noisy as public beaches can be. The sunsets are breathtaking! My family scheduled professional beach photos and the sunset in the background is always the first thing people comment on when they see the pictures. Our favorite dining restaurants included Captain Curt's and Walt's Fish Market; although, our ultimate favorite place was Casey Key's (the pan-seared tuna filet was better than steak). We took a day and drove down the coast visiting Venice Beach where we hunted for fossilized shark teeth (and even got to see a hammerhead shark that had washed up onto the beach after being fatally injured). We checked out the light houses at Boca Grande. We will be returning soon, but for two weeks back to back. One week was simply just not enough time to rest and relax in such a peaceful paradise...

“Fabulous Condo, View, Area - Best of the Best”

Reviewed 15 Aug 2016

Our stay at Pau's condo was great from Day 1. Our condo was impeccable. I am very picky with where I stay and this was beyond my expectation of cleanliness. The condo had everything we could think of available to us. The beds were so comfortable and as well as the linens. They really put a lot of care into this home and it shows. After making the reservation, Paul sent an email with detailed information and tips for the area that were amazing! They really made our trip memorable as we traveled like a local. I would rent this place again tomorrow if I didn't have to work. I cannot say enough good things about it. The view is breathtaking from even the kitchen and unit was very quiet sound. we never heard a neighbor. Property is immaculate as well and the management company is very helpful. We found so many shells and sanddollars we needed to buy a tote to bring them home. This was by far the most relaxing and memorable vacation I have had in a long time. Thank you to Paul and the management company for making this feel like home away from home.

“Best Ever”

Thank you so much Paul, for everything. With the information you gave us, you turned a great vacation into a exceptional one. My daughter found over 300 sharks teeth at Manasota Beach. We also spent two days at Casey Key Jetty, what a beautiful place. Your condo was really comfortable and so pretty, best place on the beach. Most of all your continued contact went above and beyond what we could have expected. Know that you and your wife are in our prayers both now and in the future. I know she is in good hands, yours, her physicians and the Lords. We will plan another visit and hopefully be able to stay at your place again. If I can ever be of service to you and yours, just let me know. Bless you, Mike

“Wonderful Vacation”

Reviewed 18 Apr 2016

My wife Karen and I recently spent a week in this beautiful condo which was exactly as described. The views from the Linai at sunset were fantastic. It was our first visit to Sarasota and we had a great time. Lots of great restaurants in the area and the pub which is less than half a mile is very nice. We went there several times. Paul supplied us with a whole list of restaurants and we would have to stay for a month to visit them all. We did some traveling around the area up the coast and ate out mostly except for breakfast. Being from Canada and Toronto Blue jay fans we were lucky enough to catch a game of the season opening series against the Tampa Bay Rays in St. Petersburg. Unfortunately the Jays lost. Paul is very interested in his tenants and called us on the evening we arrived to make sure everything was OK and we got checked in and called again mid week to make sure we did not have any problems. Overall great experience and would definitely stay here in the future if we get back to Sarasota and highly recommend this condo. We did not see any other condos in the complex but I doubt any are a nice as this one. Garry C

Owner's reply: Hi Garry, Thank you very much for taking the time to write such a kind and thoughtful review! It was a pleasure to get to know you and Karen. We do our best to help our guests plan what we hope will be a perfect vacation, and it's great to know you enjoyed our condo and the Sarasota area. One of the things that attracted us to the area are the many great restaurants. We hope you will visit us again in the future. Best Regards, Paul & Sherri

“Wonderful Vacation - Great Condo, Great Stay”

Reviewed 3 Apr 2016

In September 2015, we had a wonderful, relaxing vacation in Siesta Key. This was our second time staying at this condo and we were just as happy with this experience as we were the last. In fact, before leaving, we booked again! We love the Sarasota area, there's so much to do and the location of the condo is perfect...literally right on the beach. Phenomenal views, well-maintained, nothing to worry about...and Paul and Sherri are kind enough to provide lots of guidance regarding the area - things to do, and places to eat which is so very helpful for a traveler...eliminates lots of stress in an unfamiliar locale.

Owner's reply: Hi Joie, Thank you very much for taking the time to write such a nice and thoughtful review! Being our first review on this site makes it even more special. It's been a pleasure to get to know you and Matt, and we are thrilled that you have enjoyed our little slice of paradise so much. The beach "re-nourishment" project has been completed, and the guests that have seen it say it looks fabulous. We can't wait for you to see it when you return this fall. Best Regards, Paul & Sherri
