There are many..how much do you want to spend for the week? how many bedrooms?

The high end is Hyatt Siesta Key Beach Resort..

Check out one of the first floor units at Jamaica Royale. look at the map on the website to give you an idea of where each unit is located. We rented #2 in November and stayed in 18 last year (a bit of a hike)

Sea club v on sarasea circle. Timeshare and hotel. Right next to Hyatt. They are great and have kayaks, catamaran, lounges, umbrellas, and other sand and snorkel equipment no charge to guests. Outdoor pool as well. Staff is friendly and helpful. Our family spends two weeks in August each year. More like going on vacation with friends which we have made over the years. Very short walk to beach.

Under $150 per night would be ideal.

Hyatt looks excellent, but at $359 a night not sure its worth is...?

Capri

If you are seeing $359 for the Hyatt Siesta Key.....that is a steal. It is usually significantly higher. It is an extraordinary property.

However there are a number of gulf front complexes that are less expensive and are wonderful.

Crystal Sands and Sarasota Surf &Racquet club both have gulf front heated pools...if that appeals.The latter is extremely popular with young families.

Wow, now thats a list, thank you!

For us, one king and one sleeper sofa would do, one bedroom.

Crescent Towers studio units would be ideal if they have a sleeper sofa...inexpensive and literally on the beach.. not sure about the king bed..you can check...www.crescenttowers.com

SeaCrest Apartments is next door...not expensive.

Any on the list will have a 1 bedroom unit w/sleepr sofa.

Let me know how the aearch is going.
