About the owner: I became a regular visitor to Siesta Key when my grandparents retired on the island in 1973, and I have been drawn to the Key and its laid back lifestyle all of my life! Sandy Cove is quintessential Siesta Key, a quiet, natural oasis with private Gulf beach, fishing pier and lake. Yet only a short walk into the vibrant and charming Siesta Village which offers anything and everything you would want in the way of restaurants, shops, cafes and bars. And the best ice cream around! In 2022, I sold a smaller condo in Sandy Cove and purchased this beautiful, spacious home with amazing views, relaxed indoor-outdoor living and in-unit washer/dryer. I had a wonderful time furnishing this recently renovated condo with earth and water tones and a focus on comfort. I am in love with this amazing, magical place and plan to retire here. For now, I spend as much time as I can in Sandy Cove, and share my home with rental guests.
Just perfect - a beautiful condo in a natural setting
This is a lovely immaculate condo in a lush green setting. From my window i watched birds, ducks, and turtles on the lake . On the sweet private beach i saw pelicans, dolphins and egrets. It's tempting to take endless pictures. I liked walking to the village which has practicalities such as a market, post office, and general store for newspapers and necessities, as well as all the restaurants and shops. The condo has every item you could use and it was fun to cook in the kitchen. I found it easy to drive back and forth to the city of Sarasota if you like to go plays or a museum. I stayed for 6 weeks and am going back this winter.

Thank you for your fabulous review Carol. This really is a very special place. Delighted that you had such a wonderful time, and that you will be coming back!
A Perfect Getaway
Could not have imagined a better place to spend our time in Siesta Key. Convenient to everything Siesta and Sarasota have to offer - great beaches, fabulous restaurants and many wonderful activities. The apartment was lovely, pristine and had everything one could want or need. Each morning started with coffee on the quiet, private beach (my travel Buddy preferred coffee on the lanai) and ended each day with a cocktail there before dinner, when porpoise and manatee could frequently be spotted. Friendly community and an easy walk to the little town.

So glad that you enjoyed your stay, Clarinda! Great to have you.
Excellent accommodation near everything!
I am fairly new to Florida life, so I stayed at Tami's property last spring to get to know the area better. The condo was a perfect home base for experiencing everything. My bedroom suite was gorgeous and very comfortable. There was plenty of storage too. The kitchen was great, and the lanai (I think this is what Floridians call the back porch) was fab! The beach is literally steps from the condo. If you love to swim, this location is amazing. Then, when I ventured further, the drives from this location were always easy. Definitely recommend!
