The staff bent over backwards to make you feel like you're home. Beach chairs, towels, pool toys, BBQs, etc. Our original unit the AC did not work and they had a repair guy there on a Sunday trying to fix it since it was the room I really wanted. They let us see the other rooms and pick the one we liked. Rooms are cute and clean, most of them with full kitchens. Short walk across street to beach. Less than a mile from the tourist area with shops and restaurants.

Thank you for your excellent review. We are sorry for the inconvenience with the AC unit. We are awaiting the arrival of a new PTAC unit (heat and ac). Thing happen and we respond to the best of our abilities. Even on Sunday mornings. Your understanding made an unfortunate situation a positive outcome. Thanks again for staying with us and we hope to see you again soon!

My girlfriend and I recently made our way to The Sea Spray for a fourth-time and it keeps getting better and better every time we visit! We decided to stay a week (8/09-8/16) and we were happy we stayed longer than our usual 4-5 day visits. We stayed in the Seagull (#201) and really enjoyed the space and the two separate balconies. The main front-balcony, which has a living room and bedroom sliding door, looks out to the canal and parking area. The other balcony is more secluded and has lush tropical foliage that makes it very relaxing to enjoy breakfast or a few drinks. The grounds are always well kept and very conveniently laid out. There is also a perfect amount of high-quality beach chairs, umbrellas, and easy pull beach carts to help make things easier.

The location of The Sea Spray is one of the best parts. Easy access to the beach and a quick walk into town. This time around we explored beyond Siesta Key and drove up through Longboat Key to Anna Maria Island which wasn't too far away.

Of course Bob and Ann are very welcoming. They offer great suggestions for places to visit in and outside of Siesta Key. Ann suggested an excellent local grocery store called Morton's Gourmet Market that had amazing food you won't find in many markets. Also checkout MOTE Marine Laboratory & Aquarium!

Of course this won't be our last stay at The Sea Spray as we will continue to be regulars for years to come!

Wow. What a great review! You mentioned many of the things that we feel sets us apart. The photo of you being the first to use our new washers and dryers should be on facebook by now. Mote Marine is an excellent recommendation. We are certainly happy to hear you will be returning again and again.

My wife and I recently spent two nights at the Sea Spray Resort and can't wait to go back next year for 4 or 5 nights! My mom, dad and sister also stayed at the resort and were equally impressed and happy with their accommodations and experience as well. We stayed in #7 (they stayed in #3) which is located right next to the pool. Check in was easy and included a tour of the facility which was very helpful. When we first went into the room, we were very impressed with how clean and complete it was. It almost felt as if we were the first ones to ever stay there. The unit was spacious and well decorated. It included just about everything you might need for a comfortable stay including a toaster, blender, beach towels and even an ice maker in the freezer! It is very evident that the people who run the place really take a lot of pride in it and do everything they can to make your vacation experience as pleasurable as possible! They really have thought about everything and even more impressive, they don't skimp with cheap stuff. The common areas were clean and well kept. The pool was very clean and refreshing. The location was great! It was a short walk to the beach. The beach access was great because it was less crowded and cleaner than the main public beach a .5 mile away. The carts the resort provides included all you needed for the beach and really were great to have. The resort is a short walk to the village. If you choose and I recommend it, take advantage of the numerous free shuttles available, but don't forget to tip them! All in all it was a wonderful stay! Before we left we decided we are going to invite more family and friends next year and stay longer as this really is a hidden gem and great vacation experience!!!

Room Tip: We had a room right next to pool. It was convenient and surprisingly quiet. It looks like great care was put into making sure all the rooms were unique in some way and private. I don't think you could go wrong with any of the rooms.

Thank you for the excellent review. You really made a great impression on us for noticing that we really do try to provide "a pleasurable vacation experience" for all of our guests. We provide over sized beach towels along with chairs, umbrellas and a cart to take them to the beach. We do not buy the cheap stuff. We went through a lot of umbrellas until we found the ones we use now. Same with the beach chairs too. They are not the top of the line, but sturdy and useful. We have replacements on hand as needed. We bought new stainless steel gas grills this year too. Yes we provide the propane. We were very happy to make your reservations for next year. A returning guest is very rewarding to us. It show that what we are doing is working!

Myself and my son and daughter ages 13 and 15, stayed four days at Sea Spray! Bob was such a nice, sincere man! He gave us a full tour of all ammenities upon arriving. They had carts with wheels that held umbrellas and chairs to take to beach, beach towels were provided. There were bbq grills, a wonderful outdoor pool on the grounds, places to wash off sand from beach before entering your room, washers and dryers, and your own little porch area outside front door with a table to sit and relax ! It waw the ideal location with a trail literally right across the street to the beach and siesta key village was three blocks away with a grocery store, pharmacy, restraunts, ice cream shops, a rental place for renting bikes, segways, and a handful of other fun items to rent, also lots of souveneir shops. I wanted a easy convenint vacation for a single mom with two children and this hit this spot! I didnt rent a car for our stay because get nervous in busy places, however johnnys free ride was all we needed, they only work for tips and will take you anywhere in the keys!! I will definatly stay here again !!! Oh, I also left a ring in my room when I came homeand I called bob, he found my ring and mailed it to me, I was so grateful ! Thank you Bob:)

Thank you for your excellent review. Your kind words have me embarrassed. I like to give a tour of the grounds so everyone knows everything they have access to at not charge. I admit showing the hose locations to wash the sand off helps the guest as well as us. It helps us maintain the cleanliness of the units as well as keeping sand out of the pool and its plumbing and filters. As you pointed out the "village" has lots of things to do. It is big enough to have variety but not so big as to make it uncomfortable. Thanks again for your comments. We hope you can come back again.

My wife and I stayed for four nights and had a wonderful time. Right from the start Bob provided us with a tour of the grounds and showed us all the amenities. Our room was clean and comfortable (great A/C). The beach essentials (carts, umbrellas and chairs) were a great help for spending the day at the beach. We took advantage of the pool which was kept at a comfortable temperature and was not crowded. The location is convenient to restaurants and shops. It is also close to downtown Sarasota for shopping. The next time that we visit Siesta Key, we’ll be sure to stay here again.
