We have stayed at several rentals on the Gulf in the Sarasota area and this is by far the best. This includes visits to Venice Beach, Lido Beach and other Siesta Key properties. Fisherman's Cove is located on the quiet, south end of Siesta Key, which has very little traffic even during peak-season. The third-floor location of the property provides an incredible view of the Gulf, beautiful sunsets, and large beach where you can walk for miles. Water's edge is only 150 feet from our building. We spent a lot of time people-watching from the lanai; swimmers, sun bathers, shell-gatherers, and fisherman. I caught 15 fish (6 species) in front of the property during our recent stay. You can walk to a kayak rental and paddle for miles on the inter-coastal behind our building. The heated pool is nice when it is windy on the beach. Owners Paul and Sherri recently redecorated their spacious two-bedroom condo, which has everything needed for your visit. Before you arrive they will provide a detailed document that answers all your questions including the best restaurants and local attractions. Paul is very friendly and quick to respond. He and the full-time staff at Fisherman's Cove are available if you have questions or need assistance. There are many restaurants nearby; three within short walking distance. A large mall with a Publix supermarket is only four miles away. We have already made a reservation for next year, which will be our third time renting this property. If you are looking for the best rental on the Gulf near Sarasota, this is it.
My husband and I stayed at Fisherman's Cove A309 and I can't say enough wonderful things about this place! The condo is so nice! It is well stocked, maintained and beautifully decorated. It was also very clean. The view from the balcony is breath taking! The condo is a few steps from the beach. The beach is clean and safe. Perfect for families! Paul sent us a nice guide to the area full of helpful tips on where to eat and shop! We ate at the places he suggested and the food was fantastic. He also emailed several times while we were there to make sure we had everything we needed! We went parasailing, jet skiing and took a sunset cruise with Siesta Water-sports. We saw dolphins, manatees, turtles and tarpons. I also collected so many sea shells! We will definitely re-book this condo in the future! The staff in the office were very friendly and helpful! You can't help but have a great time here!
My family of 3 stumbled across Fish Cove while searching for a vacation destination in Florida. It really looked too good to be true, but I can assure you that it delivered and surpassed every expectation we had set! I worked to plan our visit for at least a year before our trip. Mr. McWilliams was such a blessing in providing details regarding local cuisine, shopping, and activities. He was very welcoming when I reserved and I always felt comfortable emailing and asking any question/inquiry I had. The beach at Fish Cove is superb (beautiful is an understatement). Everyday, we swam and walked the beach. Oftentimes, dolphins and manatees swam near us!!! We loved the private beach as it was quiet and secluded; it was never too crowded or noisy as public beaches can be. The sunsets are breathtaking! My family scheduled professional beach photos and the sunset in the background is always the first thing people comment on when they see the pictures. Our favorite dining restaurants included Captain Curt’s and Walt’s Fish Market; although, our ultimate favorite place was Casey Key’s (the pan-seared tuna filet was better than steak). We took a day and drove down the coast visiting Venice Beach where we hunted for fossilized shark teeth (and even got to see a hammerhead shark that had washed up onto the beach after being fatally injured). We checked out the light houses at Boca Grande. We will be returning soon, but for two weeks back to back. One week was simply just not enough time to rest and relax in such a peaceful paradise…
This is simply the perfect place to get away. Everything you could need for groceries, fun activities and any kind of shopping is just minutes away by car. Once you are at the condo though, you may never want to leave. Open the windows and sliders of your on-land, cruise ship like balcony and feel the gulf to bay breezes day and night. Watch the porpoises, full moon, fishermen and phenomenal sunsets from the lanai. The beach, though lacking the powdery sand to the North, is practically private with excellent swimming, shelling and miles to walk in either direction. We much preferred the quiet, neighborhood feel of this area to the bustle and traffic towards Siesta Key Village. There are 3 restaurants within a very short walk of the condo. Paul is so helpful, he will provide detailed, written information about the area and the condo prior to your arrival. His call to make sure everything was in order after we arrived was a nice welcome. The condo is very comfortably furnished (master bed was bliss), clean and freshly painted. The kitchen is well equipped: small cooler, insulated coffee mugs, array of pans and tools, blender, plenty of dishes and glassware. The elevator and stairs are 1 unit away - close but not next to - was great. We loved our stay in this condo - it was perfect relaxation!
My wife Karen and I recently spent a week in this beautiful condo which was exactly as described. The views from the Linai at sunset were fantastic. It was our first visit to Sarasota and we had a great time. Lots of great restaurants in the area and the pub which is less than half a mile is very nice. We went there several times. Paul supplied us with a whole list of restaurants and we would have to stay for a month to visit them all. We did some traveling around the area up the coast and ate out mostly except for breakfast. Being from Canada and Toronto Blue jay fans we were lucky enough to catch a game of the season opening series against the Tampa Bay Rays in St. Petersburg. Unfortunately the Jays lost. Paul is very interested in his tenants and called us on the evening we arrived to make sure everything was OK and we got checked in and called again mid week to make sure we did not have any problems. Overall great experience and would definitely stay here in the future if we get back to Sarasota and highly recommend this condo. We did not see any other condos in the complex but I doubt any are a nice as this one. Garry C
