Pros: Great location to the beach, unit provided plenty of towels, beach toys and kitchen items. Pool was good. Close to good places to eat and visit. Cons: Unit could have used a good cleaning, floor was very dirty. Furniture felt like people had sat on it with wet bathing suits. Put a blanket over the sofa to sit. Chairs...

Just back from a 3 night stay beginning of may (mon.-thurs.) Was in the Y building on the first floor. Room was in decent shape and well maintained just steps from the beach. A big plus was the entire staff being top notch, from the front desk to gym personnel and all the employees we encountered. A very personal staff...

This property is a great find for Siesta Key. There are plenty of condos lining the beach off of Midnight Pass but I'd have to say this is one of the nicest, with its own private beach that is well-kept and incredibly clean. We spent 3 nights here recently and never had a problem getting beach chairs at any time...

Was there this past weekend for a family reunion. The quality of units varied, as we occupied several units in the complex. Some units were very nice; ours was average.
