Give yourself plenty of vacation choice. Book your vacation at 308 Circle Drive and you’re only a short 1 1/2 block walk from Venice’s private Gulf Shore Beach. Located on Venice Island and equally close and within walking distance is the Venice Pier and Sharkey's and the charming town center. It’s all within a quick walk or shorter drive. When not trotting here, there and everywhere filling your perfect vacation itinerary, this house is a comfortable retreat in a perfect location. On slower days, your private heated pool and inviting interiors make a great excuse to stay in pajamas ‘til noon and relax to your heart’s content. Roomy accommodation sleeps up to eight guests. The high-quality furniture feels familiar and just like home. Added comforts are found throughout, like the corner entertainment unit ready for all the Jimmy Buffet you can throw at it.
Your long rectangular heated pool sits within a screened lanai area. Long enough for laps and a great size for pool games, this is where you could spend much of your vacation. Comfy furniture is provided on the handsome tiled deck and, in winter, a powerful pool heater kicks into action. Indoors, find those little details and added extras that make you feel truly taken care of. Deep kitchen counters mean you’ll never struggle for space. Classic wooden ceiling beams lend a timeless feel and lend an air of importance to whatever you do - writing that novel or debating the morning news. An antique hutch desk wants you to set to with diary entries, postcards or checking email on the provided wireless Internet. With such gorgeous furniture pieces, even mundane tasks take on a vacation lightness.
New furniture in the bedrooms adds further decadence to three lovely spaces. The master suite boasts a massive king size bed and an LCD TV (for guilty pleasures - maybe endless Nick at Nite?). In the very private guest bedrooms, your friends and family will feel right at home. Both have comfortable queen beds and plenty of storage for their vacation best. Throughout, buttery yellow walls are a perfect match for happy vacation moods. Large windows ensure the home is constantly filled with gorgeous Florida sunshine. The living room boasts two papasan chairs to fight over - with high backs and deep seats they’re the perfect shape for curling into for a long nap or afternoon of reading. A comfy couch, flanked by two carved side tables creates a lovely entertaining space. Slanted ceilings add architectural interest, with long windows along the outside wall.
Pets are welcome at this Circle Drive property and Venice is a welcoming destination for dogs of all sizes. Stroll the historic streets of Old Venice together, stopping for coffee at any number of sidewalk cafes. Energetic dogs can get their fix at the enormously popular Brohard Paw Park. A ‘dog amusement park’ cum dog beach, it’s a great place to make local friends and get better acquainted with the area.
Locals and tourists alike can agree on a great sunset destination - Venice Pier and Sharky’s restaurant. At sun down the area comes into its own and is a superb gathering point for drinks and live music.
This is our 3 times staying at this property. We love the location and the condtion of the home. Very cozy!!Venice 10.26 miles
Look no further for an absolutely stunning private heated pool overlooking a peaceful lake. Perched above a serene lake, the blues of the turquoise pool blend to a happy mix with the deeper color of the waterway and the perfect clear sky above. The screened lanai turns the pool area an idyllic outdoor room. Steps lead delicate types slowly into the pool and also make a great perch on which to sit and read a book or watch the birds pass by.
Indoors, tiled floors are a must for beachside living and the home features great furniture throughout. Sleeping six, this house provides space enough for both time together and quiet time alone. New flat-screen LCD TVs and high-speed wireless Internet are included. Choose to watch a movie or learn all about the manatees you might spot in the intra-coastal. The family’s casual cottage ambiance shows off form and function in white bamboo furniture, with plenty of comfy seating options. Relax in the sunny family room, finding a convenient glass-topped table wherever you reach out to place a drink. A long blue couch will be popular even with tall guests. White furniture and accents sit below a powerful ceiling fan. Air conditioning is available when it gets hot.
A more formal living room also has great furniture - deep olive green couches invite you to take a nap or put your feet up. Decorative silk accent cushions and a soft area rug underfoot make it an elegant space in which to entertain, play cards or have coffee. The big family kitchen is finished in white with decorative tiles to add interest. Arrive with only a promise that, on this vacation, you’ll live to eat - all kitchen utensils and cookware are provided. A wide fridge/freezer and new oven/stove top are ready for your designated chef to make magic with local fresh seafood. Eager beavers can sit greedily at the breakfast bar, perhaps sipping a fresh cup of coffee or being put to good use preparing a fruit salad made with local fruit. The kitchen opens to a sunny dining area where four can plan a day’s adventure around a circular glass-topped table.
Your delightful master bedroom is sunny and neutral. While it has lots of furniture for great storage and organization, the room is large and feels very spacious. Unpack in the large closet and two dressers, before climbing on to the large bed and watching some TV. Your en suite bathroom boasts high-end finishings and provides the vacation decadence you deserve. The second large bedroom has a 2 twin beds (sleeps 2) and also new furniture. Our living room also has 1 queen sleeper couch with new Sealy Mattress (sleeps 2). Plus, all bedrooms have good sized closets and both bathrooms are full size and have showers.
Nearby, why not visit the famous Warm Mineral Springs? Opened in 1946, the lake’s potent water is said to cure ailments including stress, arthritis and sore muscles - a bit like a bath in Epsom salts with much better views. You’re welcome to partake and swim in this hourglass-shaped lake where water is consistently 87°F.
Please inquire with us for other activity recommendations, including golf courses. The home is pet friendly and is ideally situated close to famous Brohard Paw Park, just a short drive away. Beach gear and bikes are provided. Our Cambridge Venice Florida house is only a short drive to the Venice beaches and is a few minutes to downtown Venice. It is also close to the Venice Pier and Sharkys where you can enjoy live music at night and watch the sunset.
Great home , good price excellent location.Venice 8.18 miles
Hop into the Rialto Mansion, a 6-bedroom beauty on gorgeous Venice Island. Just a few blocks walk to the beach and very close to the Venice town, your guests have every option available to them for enjoyment both at home and nearby. A group of up to fourteen will love this home. Six bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms make this a perfect house for a large group. Fourteen guests are easily accommodated here, with a kitchen large enough for making (and eating) big meals. The generous communal areas keeps everyone happy - you’ll always feel as though you have your own space.
Gather together for games and spontaneous fun in any of the home’s many living areas. The natural HQ, the kitchen, the great room, dining room and - best of all - the large pool area and patio. An electric heated pool is the crown jewel of Rialto Mansion. Imagine a hotel-sized pool that’s all yours - no rules, no closing time, no screaming kids. The relaxation and the privacy of this personal resort must be experienced. The house has a large front yard as well.
As you’d expect in such a fine property, the kitchen is gourmet. Past guests enthuse that it’s “fantastic”. Understanding the needs of a large group, you’ll find everything is provided to keep everyone happy. Two coffee-makers and two microwaves are just a small part of these great details. Comfy beds, too, mean you get a great night’s sleep - the ocean air is said to induce deeper sleep, so you’ll feel doubly relaxed and refreshed after a vacation at Rialto Mansion. A massive master bathroom is a real treat in the master suite. You’ll feel spoiled rotten.
Make this your family HQ for your next big celebration. Whether a destination wedding, big birthday or anniversary party - this is a ready-made palace for entertaining. Past guests have found it to be the perfect venue for their wedding reception. A large kitchen easily accommodates herculean catering efforts, as does the patio BBQ, large pool and entertainment system. Very near to the beach and to Venice, you can enjoy both in a single afternoon. Teenagers will love the freedom found in this property’s location. Restaurants, shops and the beach are all within a short walk.
The neighborhood is quiet and residential so you won’t have the worry of a closely packed resort or condominium complex. A thorough and dedicated property manager is always available to meet your needs or queries. Many guests fall so in love with this property that they return year-after-year. Wouldn’t it be nice to never search for another vacation rental again? Find your family’s new home-away-from-home at 938 The Rialto on the Island of Venice Florida.
My large family fit very well into this home. The kitchen is perfect for feeding a lot of people, and there was plenty of seating in the living room with the wrap around couch. The only issue we had were Mosquitos around the pool and the home would benefit from a screen around the pool. We were there when roofers came to fix a leak but the property manager Kevin and the owner made sure we were taken care of during that time, even having a pool cleaner come out to make sure the pool was cleaned out for the kids. Thank you for a great vacation.Venice 10.11 miles
Do you have children who’ll delight in the geckos and insects they can discover in the garden? Or do you love nature and the sight and scents of tropical flowers? An idyllic ocean side condo perfect for energetic kids or families seeking added privacy, Siesta Dunes Beach 38A is your perfect vacation rentals condo in Siesta Key, Florida. Among this unit’s many splendid features is its large wooden-decked outdoor patio. With stylish seating, it’s a great spot for a relaxed morning coffee or gentle evening nightcap. Framed with a wooden balustrade and a trellis above, you’ll have ample time to enjoy Siesta Dunes’ famed landscaping.
In spite of your garden seclusion, it’s just a few minutes’ walk to the beach. Pad down a sandy path towards the warm gulf waters - with rows of palm trees pointing the way. Your route takes you past the resort’s massive circular heated pool, which has a surplus of pool beds to choose from. The condo itself is bright and cheerful, with light tiled floors and white walls. Turquoise blues and sunny yellows are accent colors - picked up in the living room’s comfortable sofas and cushions and blue rocking armchair. A square glass-topped coffee table completes a happy, functional space without filling it in.
A feature wall in the living room is painted in a dark sky blue - a color you’ll come to know well during endless days of perfect Florida sun. Against this wall sits your entertainment unit - well-stocked with TV, DVD player and stereo system. In the middle of this generous open-plan living area is a dining suite, with room enough for yourself and five lucky guests. An adjacent breakfast bar with three wrought iron high-backed stools makes a great hang-out spot while meal preparation is underway.
The kitchen is a real feature in this unit, where soaring vault ceilings lend a dramatic touch. Clean, white wooden cupboards sit nicely against rich wooden counter tops. All appliances are in-built, including a microwave - leaving extra room on the work space. Morning coffee and toast are ready in minutes - as are afternoon margaritas, courtesy of your available blender.
Quirky seating in the breakfast nook is nowhere more at home than on the gulf coast - royal blue cushioned wicker seats feature fish nets as chair backs. A large shuttered window makes this a sunny spot in which to spend lots of time. At the far end of the living area is a wall-length set of sliding doors, leading outside to your private screened lanai. There, enjoy meals outside around an ample dining table set beside lush, beautifully landscaped gardens.
Your happy vacation continues in the master bedroom where bright yellow walls light up as the room fills with sunshine from the second large set of sliding doors. This is a massive room, with lots of floor space available around its two queen beds. A large en-suite bathroom has plenty of counter space and many drawers to call your own. A feature vanity mirror really makes best use of this space.
Bedroom two is neat, tidy and very inviting. Decadent sea blue walls are a perfect contrast to white wooden shutters, framed artwork and wicker headboards. Two guests will happily unwind here in their twin beds. Each guest has use of their own chest of drawers, in addition to an in-built closet. An ample guest bathroom with a full bathtub is theirs to call their own.
Full-sized washer and dryer make this a truly convenient condo. Within the resort itself, you’ll have great opportunity to experience the many amenities of this large complex. The gorgeous beach and large beachfront deck, for one. Tennis and two heated pools, perhaps.
Yet, many guests find they enjoy the unplanned moments more than anything - finding geckos in the gardens with your children, spotting dolphins or committing perfect sunset after sunset to memory. From your home base at Siesta Key Dunes 38A, you’ll love the surprises that unfold.
Great location! Beautiful condo! The kids loved it!

It's a beautiful accommodation. We needed a place that would sleep 14 guests comfortably and the location actually had the available room and beds. Beach access was directly across the street from the location. It was in walking distance from the village and shops (about two blocks). The top balcony off the master suite had a really nice view of the beach. The place was very clean on arrival. We did have a few minor hiccups. The wifi access codes provided by the property manager were not correct. There were a number of lightbulbs out within the facility. Most of these issues were handled expediently once reported.Sarasota 24.71 miles

Placed on cool tile floors, the entire space is roomy and tropical - exactly how a Florida vacation should feel. Facing this area and looking out towards the gulf view is a fully stocked kitchen. All appliances are included, as are those little extras you never realize you’ll need: can openers, corkscrews and pots and pans.
As master vacation-planner, you rightly earn an extra dose of R&R. You’ll find it in your ample master suite, where a large bed with a tasteful headboard and tropical linens await. Enjoy gulf views from bed, or perhaps a book or favorite show. Lots of storage in bedside tables, dresser and closet keep things at hand as you come and go from beach to pool to nightlife. Just outside your bedroom door is the unit’s large bathroom with a full shower/tub combination. For family time, the resort lays out the choices for you to decide. A BBQ grill area is an idyllic dinnertime spot and - afterwards - nearby ice cream stands make the perfect victory treat after miniature golf.
Cannot beat the location.Everything great --- but the bathroom needs a complete update.The dresser drawers would get stuck,and the living room sofa was very uncomfortable to sleep. New furniture is definately needed!Siesta Key 23.74 miles

Beautifully decorated, cool, relaxing. Great veranda off the kitchen. Had everything we needed. Good amount of large beach towels, washer and dryer and a blender! Short walk to the beach. The beach is beautiful and everything we were told it would be. It was fun using the elevator. Nice pool and patio with gas bbq. Close to shops and resturants. Most relaxing vacation ever. Have to share patio and pool area with other renters (it's like a duplex) but it wasn't a problem.Sarasota 24.71 miles
Roll into the lap of luxury and enjoy a unit that’s still sparkling new. Siesta Key Gulf and Bay Club is known to be the finest long-stay resort in the area - and this newly renovated unit with a new air conditioning and heating system, Gulf and Bay Club 305C, trumps the competition. Sleeping 6, the suite is warm and sunny all day long with gulf views from almost every room. Best enjoyed from the large lanai, you can spend long mornings perched above the Gulf and gorgeous surrounding vegetation.
The newly refurbished living room area includes not only large couch (cum queen-sized sleeper sofa) but choice of arm chairs, soft cream carpeting and a massive 46 inch LED TV but a corner office area as well. Enabling guests to make best use of the included high speed wireless Internet, any real-world commitments are tidily completed at this compact desk. Each piece of furniture adds to the suite’s charm and character, including the ‘cottage chic’ entertainment stand in a happy shade of sea foam. The room is finished with tasteful seaside art and carvings of local bird life - you’ll be stealing these style tips for your own home.
A new dining set accommodates all 6 guests and white cushions on water hyacinth chairs look very smart. The table is spaced between the kitchen’s breakfast bar and living area - a perfect layout for both formal and informal family dining. New stools at the kitchen counter seat eager (perhaps greedy) guests, while a lucky chef has a brand new gourmet kitchen in which to play. Granite counter tops, a double sink and top-of-the-line appliances are only the beginning. No detail in the unit has been spared from the 5-star treatment. Towards the back of the kitchen is a breakfast nook as well.
Step into your master suite and you’ll know you’re at the beach. Sunlight dances across the light walls, white antiqued furniture and king sized bed with new mattress and new linens. White accents, framed mirrors and complementary artwork finish this lovely space. Better still are your new flat-screen 37" LCD TV, direct lanai access, walk-in closets and roomy en suite bath. Oh my! Bedroom two has a set of twin beds in sunny striped linens. Cream walls and a large window make it a very bright and sunny room. It has its own wall mounted 26" flat-screen TV and wall closet, too.
Both the en suite master bath and guest bath are newly refitted with custom hardware and tiles. In-suite laundry is provided - if you can be bothered between delicious beach and poolside commitments.
Located on the 3rd floor (with an elevator) with views of the Gulf from almost every room, this beautifully new renovated and newly furnished 1445 square foot, ocean and gulf view Mediterranean style condominium is located at the Gulf & Bay Club Resort Condominiums in Siesta Key, Florida. Two small bridges connect to an inner island, where tiki umbrellas cool blissed-out vacationers. Within the lanai, a cozy wicker table set awaits happy hour and floor lamps allow the gathering to stretch into the night.
We knew the condo development from previous years, however this was our first stay in this particular unit. The unit was clean, well laid out, perfectly fit the purpose for 2 adults + 2 kids (7&4).
Small issue with the washer was swiftly dealt with by the management co.
Siesta Key is a great location, you can enjoy the beach, nearby playground and of course the village with lot of popular joints (SKOB, SubZero etc). We ll definitely be returning next year.Siesta Key 24.11 miles
Dial up the Beach Boys - this beach home’s got real surfer’s attitude. From outside, the banana yellow exterior and teal blue door reveal only that inside, someone’s having much more fun than you. Venice Island’s Villas Mansion would love to have you.
Your master suite will fit your whole family if traveling with kids or young teens - the space holds a king bed and a queen-sized futon. A large second bedroom has the same configuration - making this home a great choice for lots of families vacationing together. Two queen beds in the third bedroom comfortably fit four more guests and, yes, there’s new furniture, too. Bedrooms four? Two twin beds - who will room together and enjoy secretive late-night chats? The large office doubles as a fifth bedroom with a queen sleeper bed. Three bathrooms allow even a large group of 14 to get out the door on schedule - when restaurant reservations or a day trip calls. Each bathroom has a standing shower and one has a bathtub - of great use to parents with younger children.
Get to know the outdoors from the sanctuary of your lanai - a screened, outdoors living room. Within? A large heated pool - big enough for every game you can think of and lots of seating for the party poopers who ‘don’t want to get their hair wet’ (throw them in anyway). Your gorgeous heated pool has brand new heating machinery - indicative of the owner’s care in their property. An air-conditioned pool house doubles your entertainment space with a bar, table and chairs and sofa - kids will hide here as others seek - while adults will like the chance to read in certain peace and quiet. Fish netting above the bamboo bar makes it pretty clear: Its always 5 o’clock right here.
The living room’s high vaulted ceilings carry fantastic Florida breezes and the terrazzo tile floors - well, they feel pretty great, too. Dark blue micro fiber couches sit prettily next to white wicker rockers and side tables - while the large space means the ambiance stays bright, uncluttered and airy. Coming for the holidays? A large LCD TV and available central heating make this property fantastic all year round.
Wifi internet is ready and working from the minute you arrive - traveling without this life-line can be so frustrating.
The kitchen has everything you’ll need, including a garbage disposal (because kids used to one at home will never learn otherwise). Yellow walls suggest fresh lemonade and fresh muffins as vacation staples - and a breakfast nook with white wicker seating keeps your happy campers close. A brand new dining table in dark wood seats eight on modern chairs with white cushions.
From home, it’s just three blocks to the beach - grab your banana-seat bike or race there in flip-flops. How many shark’s teeth can you find in the sand? Downtown Venice is nearby, too. Pet owners will love the proximity to nearby Venice dog beach, Brohard Paw Park. Your backyard will never again compare. Stroll 15 minutes from the house to sunny Venice Pier or - at night - try great live music at Sharky’s. Google map the property and its surroundings (405 Villas Drive, Venice, Florida 34285) - this location has it all.
The kids loved the pool and everyone loved the proximity to nice beach and good biking lanes and trails.Venice 10.58 miles
Ideal for a large family gathering or reunion, this charming beach house for ten can be easily rented in conjunction with its next-door-neighbor-but-one, Baycrest II, and/or the elegant Laguna Mansion one block away. Could these homes be your perfect beach wedding solution? With a brand new heated pool and enviable location (1 block to Roberts Bay, 3 blocks to downtown Venice and only 5 blocks to Venice Beach), there’s plenty to write home about - if you can be bothered. Quite likely, you’ll be too busy hunting sharks’ teeth, spotting dolphins and window shopping in Old Venice. The charms of this locale are many, and reward repeat visits.
Old Venice is a distinct town with real character and stands out from all others along the coast. Italian-style architecture dates to the early 1920s and street names pay homage to the town’s influences: stroll down Via Venezia, San Marco and Firenze, for example. Wander along Main Street and browse to your heart’s content in shops, restaurants and little boutiques. Enjoy the best in al fresco dining at charming sidewalk cafes. Along the way, admire huge oaks are draped in Spanish moss. This town is absolutely charming. As is this Baycrest home. A brand new heated pool and surrounding patio are enclosed in a gorgeous screened lanai. Treat yourself to Terrazzo tile floors and many further indulgences. Tropical accents dot the walls throughout the house. Wireless and cable high-speed Internet are added conveniences.
New furniture in the living room is of particularly high quality. Large coffee and side tables are great for holding snacks or cooling drinks, and everyone will fight over the leather recliner chairs and matching foot stools. They’re sublime. When you choose to dine at home, the dining room is a further option (in addition to outside patio table and barbecue). Opening directly to the kitchen, it’s an ideal spot in which to plan your day together, catch up on email or enjoy a bite of toast. The home’s three bedrooms include a king bed in the master suite, with two twins and two queens in the guest rooms. Enjoy brand new furniture throughout. Two further guests will sleep comfortably in the sunroom on an oversized sleeper sofa. All of the bedrooms are spacious and have large closets. Of the two bathrooms, one has a bath/shower combo and the other a handsome tiled shower stall. Look out for ‘snow birds’ as you walk to the beach. Parrots visit Venice and surrounds during the winter, and are often found nesting in palm trees along the shore.
Our Baycrest house is located in one of the most beautiful areas of Venice Island near Roberts Bay. Our house is on a small side street at 433 Baycrest Drive and is just 5 blocks to the Venice Beach and 3 blocks to downtown Venice. We just added a beautiful pool and enclosed patio and lanai. The Baycrest House is only a 5 block walk to the Venice Beach and a few minutes more to the Crow's Nest seafood restaurant where you can enjoy live music at night and watch the sunset. If you have a dog, it is a nice walk or short car ride to Venice's famous dog beach - Brohard Paw Park. Also, the beach home is about 3 blocks to Venice Avenue and downtown Venice Florida. Here you will find shops, boutiques, cafes and even tennis courts and recreation area.
The home had plenty of room for the two of us plus my daughter and family who visited for a week. Our dog loved the place also, and enjoyed many trips to the Venice dog beach. The house is a bit dated, with original bathroom and tile from the 50's. Main bath seemed to be leaking water on the floor during every shower. This bathroom was also very tight with limited space between the counter and shower doors. We called to have the pool cage screen repaired, and someone came out right away and fixed it. I would recommend that the owner put in a privacy fence in the back yard, especially since the home is dog friendly. The neighborhood is quiet and an easy walk to a park where I walked my dog every day. We loved Venice, but wish the rentals were not so expensive.Venice 11.73 miles
The boundaries between indoor and outdoor are delightfully blurred in our spacious Venice Lakeside House. A sparkling swimming pool, large lanai, and 3 living spaces create enough room for a party. The perfect getaway for family and friends! Step outside as the sun is rising and enjoy the sight of exotic wildfowl fishing for an early breakfast on the lake, or float in the heated pool and gaze at through the floor-to-ceiling windows at the pure blue of another perfect day. If you are looking for relaxation, Venice Lakeside House offers it in every room.
Just inside the lanai is a sunroom, flooded with light yet cooled to just the temperature you desire. With three ultra-comfortable couches, an HDTV, and a coffee table for drinks and snacks, this is the place for impromptu games of charades, long evenings reminiscing, or perhaps even an afternoon siesta. One corner of the room meets the kitchen, with convenient bar stools and a wide counter for pick-up meals and refills of frosty drinks. The kitchen is a busy mom's delight, with brand-new cabinetry, gleaming countertops, and enough refrigerator and freezer space to stock up on refreshments. Fully equipped with all the cookware, dishes, silverware, and gadgetry of a large family, it's got everything you need for concocting gourmet feasts or for serving takeout!
A breakfast nook adjacent to the kitchen doubles as a game room or workspace in this wireless Internet-equipped home. Whether your teenagers want to access their social media, your spouse review a project, or your little ones play a raucous online round of I Spy, this is the place to spread out and get down, either to business or the business of fun. Keeping up with the laundry is simple with the en-suite washer and dryer, accompanied by plenty of storage space. Fluff-dry those damp swimsuits so they'll be fresh and warm for a pre-bedtime dip in the pool or run a load of towels in preparation for another sun-soaked day at the beach; it's all easy and quick! And when it's time to get away from communal living, the exquisitely appointed living room is the place to unwind with a good book or watch the game on the large LCD TV. This house is so well designed that children can splash in the pool, teens conduct a lively game of Magic in the sunroom, adults enjoy a heartwarming classic film in the living room, and toddlers slumber in a bedroom -- all at once, without disturbance! Now that's the best of both worlds -- quality time with family and friends, all together yet not crowded or cramped!
Lakeside House is located on a sleepy residential street. The backyard is shaded by a natural barrier of trees, so you can enjoy the BBQ grill, sunbathe, or stargaze in privacy. Nearby, the Gulf Coast beckons you to splash in the surf and hunt for prehistoric shark's teeth in the soft sands. Come stay at Venice Lakeside House for the vacation of a lifetime with more than the comforts of home! If our Venice Beach location, private pool and views leave any gaps in your itinerary - Disney World makes a great day trip.
Cooling system worked very well. Pool older but very well maintained. Extra refrigerator in garage very handy. Lots of space. Overall very enjoyable vacation.Venice 8.28 miles
Just steps from the bay, our newly remodeled condo in a gated Key West-style community is the perfect destination for your Siesta Key vacation. With resort amenities and the ideal location for beach and bay access, Gulf & Bay Bayside is irresistible! Relax in the large 11 x 16-foot lanai just off the living room at Gulf & Bay Bayside. Covered for protection from the hottest midday sun, it is open on 3 sides, with balmy breezes and great views of a creek and the community tennis courts. We've placed a brand-new table and chairs here for al fresco dining, card tournaments, and laptop use. You have free WiFi at the condo, so bring your smartphone out here and update your social media while watching egrets and cranes stop by to visit the creek.
When it's time to go indoors, bask in the comfort of the spacious living area, with tiled flooring that feels so good on hot feet, brand-new leather loveseat and couch (that unfolds into a queen-sized bed), and huge HDTV with cable and DVD player. Large windows and plenty of open space give this room great breathability -- and there's lots of space for your whole group to stretch out and get comfortable.
We mentioned al fresco dining out on the lanai, and the place to whip up those delicious meals is the fully appointed kitchen at Gulf & Bay Bayside. Even if you like to dine out during vacation (and Siesta Key has some absolutely terrific restaurants you must try!), you'll love bringing home the day's fresh catch and cooking it using the new stainless steel appliances in our kitchen. We have plenty of cookware, dishes, and glasses, too -- enough for you to make and serve a feast without bringing anything to the party but the groceries!
Dine at the sun-splashed round table in the corner of the kitchen, the handy breakfast bar dividing the kitchen from the living area (you can watch TV from there!), or on the lanai. There are plenty of spaces to entertain at Gulf & Bay Bayside, as well as to indulge your group's chosen activities, from board games to puzzles, computers to journaling!
The living and dining areas are well appointed, but the real showplace of our condo is the master suite. No matter how much fun you're having each day on Siesta Key, you'll feel a sneaky longing for this ultra-luxe, comfortable haven! It's a great place to recharge your batteries each night, featuring a king-sized bed, papasan chair, big TV, and desk. Sunny yellow walls, soft lighting, big windows -- they all work together to create the perfect ambiance for a great night's sleep every time. The en-suite bath is a pleasure as well. The powder room is separate, with 2 vanities and more counter space than you could ask for. There's a sleek new walk-in shower, plus a luxurious walk-in closet. Perfect for two people trying to get ready at the same time in the morning!
The 2nd bedroom is ideal for grandparents, children, or friends traveling with you. Two twin-sized beds face a large TV, with a giant window and cool tiled floor. This room shares a bathroom (with both tub and shower option) with the living area. And our utility room has a washer and dryer for your convenience -- no draping wet beach towels and swimsuits everywhere in the hope that they'll somehow dry out before the kids demand to go back in the water!
Very nice condo. Very clean, good amenities, great view from lanai.Siesta Key 24.06 miles
