This was our first time staying in Siesta Key. My husband and I are avid travelers to the Caribbean, but with two very young kids we decided to try renting a condo on a beach closer to home. The unit we rented was very clean and spacious. It was well-equipped with towels, kitchen utensils, beach umbrellas/toys, etc. The unit overlooked the beach which was just gorgeous and we slept to the sound of waves each night. Speaking of sleep, a suggestion to the condo owners: polyester bedsheets are horrible in florida heat! So uncomfortable!!!! The pool is clean and not overcrowded, as with the beach. Honestly, I hate to be a buzz-kill, but it wasn't the best beach I've been on. Yes the sand is like powder, but the shoreline was not white powder and it was pretty dirty (until we had a strong rain, which cleaned it up a bit). The water is very warm but a little murky. I have to say though, being in our own condo where we could cook our own meals and put our kids down for naps was a plus. Definitely convenient, but not so stellar that I would come back to the same spot. We enjoyed the experience, but I think we'll try another spot next time.
