My wife and I (and lately our grown children) have been vacationing at Siesta Sands on the Beach for nearly 20 years, and have found none that compare to what it has to offer. It sits directly on the beach with each condo having a full Gulf view, and is located just two blocks from Siesta Key Village where there are plenty of eateries and shops of all kinds. One merely has to read what numerous Guests have said in their website Guest Book to realize what a special vacation place it is. But be ready to plan well ahead, even months in advance, as they have a high repeat business and book up rapidly!
Pros: Beautiful sunsets, directly on beach, all condos have same Gulf view
Cons: One bedroom, one bath and parking limited to two cars (one behind the other)
