“Beachfront location”
Reviewed April 27, 2012

We have stayed in Siesta Key several times and the House of the Sun is best choice of places to stay. The units are well located right on the beach, beautifully maintained and extremely well-managed. There are two outdoor suns decks for sunbathing, outdoor dining, and watching the sunsets.The beach is the consistency of talcum powder and always cool. Dr. Beach rates Siesta Key the No.1 beach in ths US. You can walk to some great restaurants, the grocery store, the kayak and bike rentals from the HOS, so the location is also convenient. We have found our spot to stay from now on!

Room Tip: If you want a good ocean view , rent units with "10" or higher . Units on the left get les...

I've been staying here since I was a child & now my husband & I go every year. The furnishings could use some updating but other than that it's perfect! I've traveled to many different beach resorts & this is by far my favorite. It doesn't hurt that the beach here is the best & cleanest I've ever been to including the Caribbean!

Been to HOS for past 15 years, off and on, and found the location to be breathtaking and so relaxing. From the first sight of the white-quartz beach to the sunsets from the rooftop deck, an amazing location for a restful holiday. The units in the complex are superbly maintained, features are incomparable to other properties along the Siesta Key, and the management team at SOH take care of any worry or concern that you might have. A great vacation condo, and a beautiful beach to boot!! Going back in a week and expecting another wonderful time!

Room Tip: Units on the 5th floor are superb!

My husband and I stayed here for a week in March, 2010. Staff was very helpful and condo comfortable. It was clean, had everything you need for the beach, and is in a great location. We plan on returning next year.

We have stayed here for the past seven summers. It is always a beautiful place to visit and House of the Sun provides the comforts of home with plenty of room for our family of 5 to spread out. This is a great beach for families with small children since the water is calm and shallow. The sand is beautiful and fun to play in - not hot. There is a nice rooftop deck to watch the sunset. The new additions in the game room were great: air hockey and fuseball along with the ping-pong table. The pool is not very large but adequate for a quick dip. I did not want to review because I did want crowds to come to our piece of paradise - but the secret is out. This is truly the best beach in Florida!

Room Tip: The gulf view rooms are worth it.

House of the Sun - SK continues to be and will always be our destination of choice. The location is not crazy busy, the stretch of beach in front of the complex is extremely wide and very accommodating for baseball games / frisbee / etc, with the kids. Point of Rocks is a 10 minute walk, need a quick burger - bowl of gumbo or ice cold beverage, Curts is right across the street. Kids need ice cream - right accross the street. Need a deli sandwich, Anna's Deli - right accross the street - need a good bottle of wine - perhaps some deli cheeses or steaks to grill out - Crescent Grocery is right across the street. So as you can see this place has plenty to offer and the updates to the condo's were well received by our entire group. There are plenty more reasons why to consider HOS, but the location relative to the other points of interest is brings us back to this place. O yeah, sunsets on the 5th floor deck - Amazing.

Room Tip: Use their online - video tuturial

This summer, my family and I stayed at the House fo the Sun unit # 204. The room amazed us. It was very clean and had many updated features. You could tell that the owner has really taken care of this unit and takes great pride in how it looks. The beach was beauiful and we loved that pool sat right on the beach. It made it real easy to keep an eye on the kids no matter where they went. It's my hope to come back every summer.
