About the Owner

Hi, my name is Tory Smith. My husband Kirk & I first purchased our property in 1999.

Then bought a second unit in the same complex a few years later. We have since sold A112 but I continue to manage it along with our B109 unit in the same complex.

We live within 100 miles of the condo & supervise the cleaning of each unit after a guest departs. Kirk is on hand to make any repairs.

Dear Tory,

I wanted you to know your condo pictures did not do the actual place justice. My family loved your place! It was perfect for us. The kids enjoyed the heated pool, my husband enjoyed fishing from shore & I enjoyed relaxing! The condo was furnished beautifully and so clean. Loved it..

We will definitely be booking again!

We will

Owner's Response: Dear Conny & Karin,
It is always a pleasure to have your family and friends return. Thank you for renting 3 units from me this year, 15 people all together this time! We loved seeing Per & Lena's grandbabies, Tim & Emma. It amazes me how well traveled they are already!
It has been lovely getting to know all of you better & wonderful having some time there that we could enjoy all of you. We hope to visit everyone in Sweden within the next few years.
All the best to everyone. Hugs, Tory & Kirk

Amazing property - highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5
I rented this property as a quiet place to finish a project for work and it more than met my expectations! Tory and Kirk are lovely hosts and made me very welcome. The condo is exactly as listed, clean, well-maintained, with all the amenities you could want. An added bonus was the friendly neighbors who gathered on the dune walkovers every night at sundown to chat and admire the beautiful views.

You are literally right on the beach. Walk out of the lanai door and you step onto sand. Fifteen feet away is the dune walkover and then the beach. Beach chairs and lounges are provided, as is a large tub of beach toys for the kids.

I would wholeheartedly recommend this property to my friends and family and plan to come back in the future. The only caveat is that the bathtubs are not handicapped accessible, so if you need a walk-in shower, this would be a problem. Other than that, it was simply fabulous. Kudos to Tory and Kirk for providing such a treasure.

WOW, Great location, Fantastic condo

  • 5 of 5
Oh....my....gosh! That was our response as we opened the front door on the day of our arrival. We couldn't of asked for anything more! It was lovely, and so well equipped.
We enjoyed our week tremendously. The west coast of Florida is a wonderful experience ~ especially when all you know is the east coast of Florida. We plan to come this way again.
Thank you for your hospitality!

Owner's Response: Dear Kneibert family:
I'm so glad you decided to check out the west coast of Florida. The Sarasota area has a lot to offer travelers, whether you are interested in cultural activities (the arts), enjoying the beaches, boating, and unique shops that offer a wide variety for every budget.

We love the pristine crystal blue water. And as long as the water is not churned up you can see to the bottom & pick up shells with your toes.

I am often told one week is not enough, so we do hope you & your family will return for another visit.

Warm regards,
Tory

Paradise Found, Most Relaxing Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5
We found a tiny bit of heaven tucked away...The sunsets, the birds, the moon over the Gulf, the visiting heron, the waves rolling in and out, in and out, lulling us to sleep, gently waking us in the morning.

Thank you for sharing B-109 with us. The condo is great, we had everything we needed for our weeks stay. And best of all everything was in good working condition. That's a win/win in our book. This place was truly a home away from home.

Thank you Tory, we will be back!!

Love the location!

  • 5 of 5
Although I hesitate to share the secret, this is a great place to stay. Hopefully it's available again for us! Love stepping outside my door to be on the beach, and can drink my coffee while enjoying the sound of the surf right from the lanai. All the feathered creatures kept us entertained, with not too many of the human variety! Perfect for the R&R vacation we were seeking.

Simply, the perfect place to vacation!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 4 have been vacationing on the north end of Siesta Key for several years. We decided to try the south end of the Key @ Turtle Beach this year & we are happy we made the change to a quieter setting. We loved being so close to the water & not having to tote sand toys, beach chairs, umbrella & cooler any great distance. We were literally steps away from the water. Easy to go inside & make sandwiches for lunch. Also loved hearing the surf & watching the beautiful sunsets from the lanai. The condo was tastefully furnished, clean, and had everything we needed for our 2 week stay. We rented a pontoon boat for several day's from the nearby marina. It was convenient being able to dock the boat at the free boat slips on the property. We were fortunate enough to see dolphins & 2 manatees during our stay. My husband caught several fish and cleaned them @ the fish cleaning station in front of the docks. The kids loved having a swimming pool to play in. This truly was the best family vacation ever, very relaxing. We feel lucky to have found Tory's condo. We are already planning our 2 week stay for next summer.

Owner's Response: Dear Laura,

It's awesome that you decided to try the south end of Siesta Key. I hope

more people read your guest review, because you point out all the +'s

Turtle Beach has to offer. I'm with you when it comes to totting the beach

gear far distances, rather than 80 feet from the back door. And I love the

convenience of being on the 1st floor steps away from the water. Many

guests' rent kayaks, stand up paddle boards jet skies, and even boats

during their stay or bring their own. Free boats docks are a huge plus on

our property.

We look forward to welcoming you back this summer!

All the best,
Tory

Location

From the Owner

We were attracted to the area of Turtle Beach because the beach is so close to the Gulf of Mexico. You can literally lay in bed, in the master bedroom and hear the surf. We love being on the south end of Siesta Key because it is slower paced, less traffic, more private area.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Sarasota at 15 Miles Nearest Barpub : Turtles Pub at 1 Miles Nearest Golf : Many within Sarasota at 8 Miles Nearest Motorway : I 75 at 8 Miles Nearest Restaurant : Turtles Restaurant & Ophelia's on the bay at 1 Miles Car: necessary

The natural beauty that is inherent to the Key is surpassed only by it's quiet relaxed atmosphere. In a tropical resort setting such as ours there is something for everyone no matter what time of the year you plan to visit. Be as busy as you wish to be or simply relax on the beach soaking up the sun.

Great Swimming Beach, many beautiful seashells, Deep Sea Fishing.

Boating, Kayak, Canoe and Bicycle Rentals on the Key.

Golf over 50 courses in the area / Night Clubs

A very large selection of wonderful restaurants.

SHOPPING! Two area Outlet Malls are close and the world

famous St. Armands Circle with many unique shops and eateries.

Day trips to many area attractions, such as....Myakka State Park, Busch Gardens, Disney, Universal Studios, Sea World, Dali Museum.
