This is a great location for a Siesta Key beach experience. The beach is flat, easy to walk/run and to enter the ocean. The ocean temperature in mid-June was very warm and the waves were mild making the water easy to enjoy especially for elderly and children.

You can't beat the location of these condos! Having access to the private beach makes a huge difference...the public beach is absolutely PACKED! I've never seen so many people on the beach and in the ocean than when we walked along the water and made it to the public beach. The pools are nice...the bigger one (main pool) is a...

We've been coming to SSRC on and off since 1990! Our most recent stay was June 2015. It is as gorgeous as I remember! The apartments have all been remodeled. We love this property! It is the closest to the beach of all of the beach condos on Siesta Key. It has two pools and great barbecue areas that look...

As a family, we've stayed at SSRC on an almost annual basis for over 10 years. The beach is undeniably beautiful. Siesta Key and the surrounding area are tourist and family-friendly.
