“Disappointing condo”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2010

Although White Sands is in a good location, across a road, and a short walk from beautiful Siesta Beach, the condo we rented was a big disappointment. While it promised a peek at the canal, the only thing we could see from the lanai was the concrete wall of another unit. Another window view was of a fence. The condo was in much need of upgrades, and some repairs. The folding doors in each of 2 bedrooms came off the track each time they were opened. We finally gave up trying to close them. The decor was shabby and old. Bedding didn't fit the beds, and linens didn't match in most cases. The unit was so dark, we needed to have lights on, even on sunny days. The grounds were nicely kept, and people were friendly. The pool was heated, and clean. Maybe other rental units in the complex are nicer, but our building didn't give that appearance. We expected more for our money.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 September 2004

Siesta Key is an amazing place! I just returned from 5 days on Siesta Key and loved it. I can't wait to go back. My husband and I rented a gorgeous 2BR, 2BA condo in White Sands Village. WSV is a recently remodeled garden-style condo complex with a beautiful pool and boat slips. It's a 5 minute walk from Siesta Beach, a beautiful public beach with lifeguards, large snack bar, ice cream store, playground, tennis courts, and picnic/BBQ area. The downtown is really cute and more Caribbean than Floridian (a surprise to me!). The bars and restaurants are mostly outdoors. The shop-owners were very friendly and were happy to chat about pretty much anything. WSV is about 1 mile from the village but it's an easy walk along the beautiful beach so it goes by really quickly - even in 90 degree heat!

In case you are interested in renting the place that we had, go to Coldwell Banker Siesta Key's website (tripadvisor won't let me post the site but you can easily find it on google), click on rentals, and the last one on the page in White Sands Village is the one. Ignore the pictures because it has been completely remodeled - new paint, no mirrors, new couches, etc. It's really nice. Reasonable too as you can see from the rates on that page.

In sum, I highly recommend it!
