Booked a 2 bedroom ocean front unit in the tower. Everything about this property was even better than advertised. No problem w check-in - there was no hair dryer in our unit, called the front desk and a new in box hair dryer was delivered to our door in 5 min. The unit was exactly as pictured.

We were thrilled when we entered the condo we rented for the week here. Of all the places we have stayed this is our favorite on the beach. Condo was roomy and private and also had laundry.

We loved this place. Very good sized condo, plenty of space for our 6 family members. And the patio had a great view of the ocean. The beach was literally 5 steps from the stairwell and the 2 pools were very close when the kids needed a break from the ocean. Also had free chairs on the beach which they... More

This is a great location for a Siesta Key beach experience. The beach is flat, easy to walk/run and to enter the ocean. The ocean temperature in mid-June was very warm and the waves were mild making the water easy to enjoy especially for elderly and children. I highly recommend reserving tents and umbrellas from the guys at Tropical Beach... More

You can't beat the location of these condos! Having access to the private beach makes a huge difference...the public beach is absolutely PACKED! I've never seen so many people on the beach and in the ocean than when we walked along the water and made it to the public beach. The pools are nice...the bigger one (main pool) is a... More

We've been coming to SSRC on and off since 1990! Our most recent stay was June 2015. It is as gorgeous as I remember! The apartments have all been remodeled. We love this property! It is the closest to the beach of all of the beach condos on Siesta Key. It has two pools and great barbecue areas that look... More
