Pros: Owner pleasant to deal with; nice plantation blinds; convenient to beach, shopping, restaurants, grocery stores and post office; washer/dryer in garage; plenty of beach chairs, towels, bicycles, and beach cart in garage; well stocked kitchen with appliances, dishes and utensils; garage for vehicle; lots of storage for clothes and plenty of hangers; outside seating and gas grill for use; newer carpet in upstairs loft bedroom; comfortable mattresses in both bedrooms; books; games; shared heated pool nearby and pet friendly.
Cons: No window coverings on sliding glass doors that face road; kitchen cabinet trim peeling in places; needs painted in some areas - inside and out; master bedside clock never worked entire time we were there - although it was not important to us and we never reported it; carpet on stairs outdated; woodwork worn in places; laminate floor in main living area chipped and warped in places; dishwasher not mounted to countertop so it was unstable when loading; dryer vents into garage so lint blows in garage area; and we encountered white dog hair on floors, couches and master bedspread on arrival that necessitated texting the owner - she did send Joe (groundskeeper) to clean, however, we elected to do it ourselves.
Overall, not a bad place to stay, however, I was somewhat disappointed and expected more - felt the pictures were a little different as to the condition of the property. Would recommend for purpose of proximity to beach, garage availability and pet friendly. Some areas of the beach are restricted to guests of resorts so it sometimes was difficult to find a place to lounge for the day.
We over packed assuming we would need to supply all the basics and found the townhouse well equipped, even with laundry soap and paper towels. Property exceptionally clean and couldn't even detect that this was a pet friendly property. Brought my own little fur pal, which made the trip much more enjoyable. Location is closer to beach than expected and a quick 2 minute walk has your toes in the sand. The condo is equiped with everything you could possibly need for the beach....chairs, boogie boards, floats, umbrellas and even two bicycles. Will rent again. Location is great and cannot say enough about how wonderful the week was.

Sandy Toes is perfectly located near what might be the best beach I have been to here in the US. The property is well kept and Joe who is the overseer was so helpful to us! The location is perfect because we were close to everything but far enough to be peaceful!
My husband and I rented the condo for a week with three teenage boys and had a fantastic time. We have been to Siesta Key before but the location to the beach, restaurants, and traffic was perfect. Having the use of a garage was a bonus that we didn't realize would be so great. Moor the boys, having a grill to use every evening after coming back from the beach was one of their favorite things. Definitely want to stay here on our next trip to Siesta Key. Kathey is wonderful! None of us wanted to leave.
We really enjoyed our stay at Sandy Toes , the location was perfect , just a walk to one if the best beaches in the world. Just a short walk to restaurants and shopping in the area and free rides into The down town area of Siesta Key with more restaurants and shopping. What a wonderful place.
