We searched many Florida locations for several years before settling on Siesta Key in 2004.
It just felt warm and welcoming and the beauty of the Gulf sold us. With the location narrowed down, we searched for the right condo. And we found it in our Fisherman's Cove condo. We have excellent management-very attentive to the needs of ourselves and our guests. The complex of 2 buildings is small (each only 3 stories high), gated, and is so well maintained. We always meet nice people there-both other owners and guests!
We love the drive down from the bridge linking Sarasota to Siesta Key to our condo-with bike paths on each side and large tropical trees and gardens lining the roadway. When you arrive at our condo, you notice the Sarasota Bay lagoon on our parking lot side. Then when you enter, you just have this great ocean view of the Gulf of Mexico! There is something so calming about viewing the water, and we have it on each side! The beach is just literally at our doorstep which makes it convenient for families as we know how children like to go back and forth for snacks, toys, etc. and our first floor location makes that extremely easy. We have furnished the condo just like our own home, because it is, so we have a lot of extras. We love to treat ourselves to some of the great restaurants in the area, but always race home to see the sunset on our lanai or patio--so very special. So relax and enjoy yourselves-we all need a vacation like this one!
We live in central IL and love to escape to Siesta Key. Having 4 grandchildren keeps us busy and traveling as our daughter's family lives in VA. Since recently retiring, we have plans for more travel; but our unique barn home on 80 acres also keeps us very busy. Debbie is a quilt maker and loves to cook, and Jim is very handy and handles all of the equipment and needs that 80 acres entails. We love to share our condo, so that others may enjoy the beautiful area as much as we do. The photo we will include was taken on Siesta Key in 2005, and it is one of our favorites. Enjoy our condo. Jim and Debbie
