We rented a 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo for a month this past February. The SSRC is on a perfect location of Siesta Key beach. You can walk for 40 minutes on way toward Siesta Key Village or 25 minutes another direction to the "wall". They offer free yoga 3x/week and the instructor was great. She is very instructive and...

We stay at SSRC every Spring Break and this stay was another good one. Check in was quick and smooth. Parking was adequate, maids checked on us for towel needs, love the new laundry card system. Mike and Cameron patrolled the beach and pool area very politely, they also spent time with the guests kids :) We stayed in Y504... More

Our stay in W402 was great. Perfect layout for our group of 6. Loves the fact that there was no carpet! Nicely equipped kitchen. Comfy beds. Quick clean and towel service mid week was great. Beach and pool were great. Cabana company was the best too. Will return!!

Although the sunsets and the beach were beautiful, our short stay in W502 was not up to the standard expected for the price paid. From the moment we walked into the unit there was a strong, unpleasant smell in the unit which never subsided the three days we were there. Knowing we were in Florida, you expected to see some...

We stayed with our family at Christmas for a week and had a wonderful time. We came back in Feb for one week and ended up staying three.

The outside of the property is beautiful. The elevators are very hot. Good luck getting a turn using the laundry. There is one washer and one dryer on each floor. We stayed in Y508, it smelled musty, there were no blinds on the windows in the lanai. The water pressure was just terrible. We could hardly rinse our hair in... More

Enjoyed another week at SSRC. Beautiful 2 bedroom condos, individually decorated and each with a water view and steps to the powdery white sand beach. Secured property.
