The tropical storm didn't stop us. We loved it. The home was amazing. Everything was there you would ever need.
This condo is by far one of the cleanest and most beautifully decorated on the island. Comfortable beds, great living area, well equipped kitchen... and the view from the lanai is incredible! Can't wait to return to this slice of paradise!!!!
Karen was very thorough and very easily to communicate with. The condo is exactly as you see in the pictures. There are some beach chairs provided in the condo, but we didn't need them, as there were plenty available at the beach which are provided by Crescent Arms. There were also two umbrellas available in the condo closet. If you are there on a Sunday, you have to go to the "Drum Roll". It was really fun. We kayaked from a rental across from Turtle Beach. We also biked the South end of SK; My brother in law and I used electric bikes which we really liked. These were rented from a place south of Crescent Arms, SK Bike & Kayak on Old Stickney Point Rd. There are virtually no Italian restaurants on SK; Pizza yes. But there is one near the bike rental; however, the night we were there they were only serving pizza. turtles Restaurant was very good for lunch ; we ate there twice. You can boat there, there is outside seating, and good cocktails. ENJOY!
The condo (605S) is clean and has an updated kitchen. There is a new refrigerator, stove, dishwasher and oven. The screened in deck with new furnishings is small but comfortable and has gulf and sunset views. The beach, which has the best sand that we have ever seen, has tropical clear and clean water. Go out the front of the building, walk a few feet and the white sand beach literally at your back yard. Beach chairs and lounges are provided by the condominium. There is plenty of parking and we had a covered spot to use for out stay. The owner is very nice and responsive to our requests. The maintenance staff is excellent. Pool is clean and warm. The condo is walking distance to small supermarket, pharmacy, post office and several restaurants. It is only a few minutes from major shopping areas, many restaurants and movie theatres. Downtown Sarasota with The Selby Gardens, Ringling Museum and many other attractions is a 15 - 20minute drive.
The building is old but well maintained. Maintenance/ security department is always painting and freshening up the grounds The washers and driers are in a laundry room across the hall and very convenient to the apartment.
What an awesome location....and home away from home! This condo has everything you may need to bake, cook, store food. It had mixing bowls, muffin pan, pizza pan, mixer. I couldn’t believe it...stocked like my home! Master bedroom has king...comfortable bed and the spare bedroom has 2 double comfortable beds. I highly recommend this slice of paradise...the beach is breathtaking!
Where to begin? This condo was amazing. Its very nice and well kept. You can tell Karen takes a lot of care of her place. Talking to some of the other residents, they did not get the same exact experience. It was clean, plenty of room for six people, and the beds were very comfortable. Karen was always in contact and I could get ahold of her when I needed to. The best part was the 2 minute walk to the private beach. There was never a lot of people there and we were always able to find a great spot. If you want to see the importance of a private beach go down to the public one. It’s still a nice beach, but there is a huge difference. From our great experience, we definitely plan on making this an annual trip and hope to use Karen’s condo again. Thanks for letting us stay Karen!
Enjoyed this condo in family. Beach view and easy access. The bedroom set-up very useful and private bathroom.
