Looking for condos in June

I realize I am late to planning, but we are looking to take a family vacation to Siesta Key sometime in mid to late June. Our dates are flexible, but we are really looking for a nice condo on the beach with a nice pool. I'd love to be able to walk to the village also - we have two children 4 and 6. Two bedrooms, and budget is open.

Any recommendations? It seems that we probably would like Crescent Beach are?

You will have more beachfront options in the Crescent beach area. It is a perfect location for young children.

There is Jonny's Free Beach Ride to get to the Village or you can drive.

http://www.jonnysfreebeachrides.com/

The high end of Siesta Key is the Hyatt Siesta Key Beach Club.

You don't say how long you are staying..other options if you're staying 1 week or more:

Crystal Sands

Sarasota Surf and Racquet

Sea Club V

Midnight C0ove-Gulfside

Palm Bay Club

Crescent Arms

Crescent Siesta Key ($$$)

Siesta Dunes

House of the Sun

Sea Shell

Island House

and more...

Oh wow, thank you. That's a LOT of options!

Any way you can narrow that down for me? On the nicer end of things (doesn't have to be the nicest on the key - but higher end is preferred), and a great pool - preferably closer to the beach side would be ideal.

Yes, I was planning on staying a week.

The Hyatt Siesta Key Beach Club is the top.

Crescent Siesta Key (2nd in line)

Sarasota Surf and Racquet (pool by beach)

Crystal Sands (some owners will rent for 1 week vs. 2)

start with those...

You have to remember that each condo is indvidually owned and therefore will differ in decor/upgrades etc.

You must look at photos of the interior and the location within the complex.

Crystal Sands is a nice place..to find rentals for less than 2 weeks you must go to www.vrbo.com

or www.vacationrentals.com some owners will "bend the rules"

Let me know how the search goes....

Read the reviews here on TA.

So far, I've found one at Midnight Cove off VRBO. No others have replied to my requests, so even though they say open they might be booked.

Are there any specific issues on this property I should ask and/or be aware of?

Midnight Cove Gulfside, right? they also have properties on the Bay.

Have you looked at photos etc? I recommend Midnight Cove-Gulfside when people want 3 bedroom units.

So, is Midnight Cove not that desirable? Do I need to keep looking?
