Our Condo

The first two pictures in the Gallery are aerial views of our condo complex.  It is hard to appreciate how close we are to the Gulf and bay without seeing it from the air.  Our condo sits on a VERY narrow strip of sand  This unique location provides you with direct water views from every room.

Sunsets From our Lanai

With its sliding floor to ceiling glass panels and clear glass railing, our lanai is the perfect place to enjoy spectacular sunsets over the Gulf.  We also installed a sliding screen so you can capture your own breathtaking photos.

As you can see in the pictures below, some of the most amazing sunsets occur when the sky is almost filled with clouds, but the horizon is clear.  On those evenings the sun will illuminate the clouds from beneath after it disappears below the horizon.   This light show can go on for as long as 30 minutes after the sun sets.

Our Beach

The distance from our lanai and master bedroom window to the Gulf is only about 125 feet.  Even during the peak of tourist season, you’ll find plenty of room to set up your umbrella and chairs.

If you like long walks on the beach and collecting seashells, you will love our location.  To the south you can walk often in near solitude for miles and enjoy the best shelling on Siesta Key.  You will also enjoy over a mile of totally undeveloped beachfront.

To the south of us the island quickly narrows to less than 200 feet.  Decades ago there was a pass there that separated Siesta Key from Casey Key.  You will see a small marker now where the pass was.  If you keep walking past that, the first house you’ll see, which is set well back from the Gulf belongs to Stephen King.

To the north the beach extends nearly two miles before ending at Point of Rocks, which is good spot for snorkeling.
