It is just steps from a beautiful water view of the bay. The complex is a gated resort community featuring unique “Old Key West style” condominiums only a 5-10 minute walk to the sugary white sands of the beach -- rated the top US beach again this year by Trip Advisor and one of the 10 most beautiful beaches in the world. (Its powdery white sand of pure quartz crystal won’t burn your feet even on the hottest days!) It is great for walks or runs with 4 miles of expansive beach to explore. We have two large heated pools, and the unit is conveniently located right across from the larger pool. Two flat-screen TVs and free WIFI too!! The complex also has 2 excellent lighted tennis/pickle ball courts, a fitness room, sauna, barbecue grills, picnic tables and a clubhouse.

The master bedroom has a king-sized bed and newly remodeled full ensuite bath. The second bedroom has a queen bed and closet and is cozy, but can sleep 2. There is a second full bath right outside the door. The comfortable living and dining areas are light and airy, and you can also eat or lounge out on the glass and screen-enclosed lanai. The unit has its own, brand new washer and dryer and there is an attached garage for beach gear, etc. We have beach chairs, a cart, beach toys , noodles, etc. for you too! Tennis rackets and balls as well. It’s a no smoking unit.

On the key and nearby, there are abundant opportunities for active fun, such as volleyball, para sailing, jet-skiing, boating, fishing or golf…and for the quieter pleasures of shopping, visiting art galleries and museums, or dining at an astounding assortment of local restaurants. You’ll be close enough to walk to charming Siesta Village to enjoy restaurants and lively outdoor dining, shops, live music and dancing. Or you can simply kick back at home for peace and quiet. You are also a short drive from downtown Sarasota, and some of its main attractions some of which include the Ringling Museum, world-class golf courses, St. Armand's Circle, Mote Marine Aquarium and Selby Gardens. For kids, there are tons of activities and it is a great place for young families, teens and older couples alike!

We've stayed all over the key and this is the best value for your money to be sure! Enjoy this quiet, private island paradise! Accessible by car, and served by the airports in Sarasota/Bradenton, Fort Myers, Clearwater/St. Petersburg and Tampa International.

Area Information

Enjoying its reputation as one of America’s Best Beaches, Siesta Beach is made famous by its sugar-fine, quartz-white sand. A short jaunt from the public beach is a village of outdoor dining, coffee shops and shopping. Turtle Beach sits beyond the sea grapes on the Key’s southern end and is a popular site for launching kayaks. It is truly the quintessential Florida beach town. There’s fun to be had for young adults, but not too much fun to turn away families and more mature travelers.
Our gated community has all the amenities of a resort with a friendly, neighborhood vibe.

Owner Info

Dave and Julie Reville

Dave and Julie Reville

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: We are Vermonters and both grew up in New England. We started coming to FL when our two girls were young to escape the cold Vermont winters. We've come ever since for a week here or there in the dead of winter. Siesta Key has always been the favorite for our family and our visitors alike. Once people experience the key, they seem to continue to come back regularly. We both work up north so can't be there as much as we'd like, but are thrilled to be part of the Gulf & Bay Bayside community. It really has a neighborhood feel -- not a high rise or hotel vibe. We want to share our new FL casita with you!

Guestbook comments from the owner:

My husband and I came down to escape the northern cold and were soo thrilled with our new accommodations. The unit has everything we needed for our stay and the location is perfect. Such a nice beach and the pool is right outside the door. Coming back again for sure!


Dec 2021

Found this on line, looking for a place that met our needs and didn't cost an exorbitant amount. Instead of a mercenary Christmas, it was meant to be about the gift of time. This exceeded all our expectations and then some. I contacted the owner first and am so grateful that he allowed us to proceed. The complex is beautiful and just a block to the beach. Will go back next year.


Dec 2018

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful time visiting Siesta Key. This condo is so cute and we felt right at home. It was plenty big for the two of us and we even had a third guest stay for some of our vacation. Very affordable, clean and well decorated...it was clear that the owners truly treat this condo as their second home. The location is ideal, as it is a few steps away from the main complex pool, which I must add is never crowded and kept very clean! In addition, it is only a mile from Siesta Key village and a short walk to the beach. We are already talking about when we can reserve another stay at this condo!


May 2017

We had a wonderful family vacation in Siesta Key. We loved the condo. It was very clean and comfortable and a walking distance to the Siesta Key beach - #1 beach in the US with beautiful sunsets and white powdered sand! We also enjoyed the pool at this gated community. The owner of the property was very caring and helpful. The condo itself was equipped with everything you could ever ask of a beach house, beach chairs , towels, an umbrella, even kids toys to play in a sand. We will definitely rent this place again and recommend it to our friends and family.


Oct 2016

We had a great time in Siesta Key. The condo was very comfortable and the perfect location. Beach was a short walk across the street. We also enjoyed the pool at the condo complex and siesta key village with the shops and great restaurants. Hope to go back again. Would definitely rent this condo again


Sep 2016

The townhouse was fantastic it was close to the beach very nicely done inside the whole complex was beautiful we would definitely rent it again it was just enough room for the four of us it had all the equipment in the garage chairs cart place was great


Nov 2015

We had an amazing time staying at this condo . It was beautifully decorated and very cozy. I especially loved the lanai and artached garage. The pool, gym, and sauna was great too! Great location! I will be renting this place again!


Jun 2015

We had a great week in this immaculate condo - loved the pelicans every morning in the waterway, the warm pool, the short walk to gorgeous Crescent Beach. The owners were great to work with - really invested in our experience - and lots of care has been taken to provide anything you'd need, from kitchen stuff to nice beach towels.

Thank you for the hospitality.

We have stayed at this Unit 1344 in the first week of May, 2022. First of all, I would like to thank the owners of this Unit for their hospitality. Dave was always extremely nice and helpful. Also the management was great! We worked with Carla and she also was very helpful and super nice. The whole complex is an amazing place! It is very clean and very well taking care of. The pool is nice and the Waterway is a beauty on it's own! It's great for a walk in the evening! Unit 1344 has everything that you might need for your stay. The walk to the beach is pretty short and very pleasant. And the beach is fabulous!!!! An absolute clear water and always cool and white sand! And there is no words to describe the stunning sunset! This place is a gem and a real Paradise!!! Thank you once again, dear Dave. We have already booked a week for the next year!!!

Best Vacation Rental!!

Our stay at Gulf and Bay Bayside couldn’t have been better! Our unit was clean and very comfortable! We enjoyed being on the ground floor as the location was perfect and we were right across from the big pool and the tropical garden view off the lanai was peaceful. We had plenty of room in the unit and the two full baths made it an exceptional choice having guests. It was the best of both worlds having the pool out our front door and Siesta Key beach right across the street! No hassle parking!! We can’t wait to return to Siesta Key!

Perfect for two with easy access to the pool and beach.

Unit gets early sun and is close to the intra costal waterway which provides an opportunity for fishing or just relaxing while watching the boats cruising by.. The pool and exercise room are just steps away or guests have special access to the beach. Siesta Key village is close and provides good shopping and restaurants.

A slice of heaven

We had a spectacular stay at this condo! The location is perfect and everything we needed for the beach was right there. We loved going to the fishing pier to watch the boats and to fish in the evenings. Even saw a dolphin! The pool is amazing and right out front. The unit was exactly as advertised. Lovely, bright island decor and sunny lanai. Can't wait to come back!
