Some of our Guests have found that all of their vacation needs can be met without the expense of a rental car (view Siesta Key Village & Eateries).
From Sarasota Airport to Siesta Sands is less than a 12-mile taxi ride, and for a reasonable fare.
If you do have an urge to visit one of the malls in Sarasota, or whatever, the SCAT Bus Systemcomes through the Village every hour from 6:00AM to 6:00PM, Monday through Saturday.
Siesta Village (an easy walk) with its grocery and numerous eateries offers all that is needed for one who just wants to unwind, read a good book, stroll the beach, go for a dip, be well fed, and enjoy cold refreshments of choice. Essentially, put on your bathing suit, kick off your shoes and pretend you are a temporary "beach bum" for your entire stay!
Siesta Market in the Village, two blocks away, offers a full line of groceries for your stay. However, if you want to be pampered and not deal with doing a grocery order when you arrive, Crescent Beach Grocers will take your order in advance over the telephone (941-312-0472) and deliver it ($15 Delivery Fee) to your Condo on your Arrival Date. And yes, put the refrigerator items in your refrigerator if they get there ahead of you!
"Should you need a particular item during your vacation that was too combersome to travel with, you might rent it from at a reasonable price! Click on the Teddy Bear to visit their website and initiate a transaction!
All transactions should be planned ahead so the item is in your assigned Condo on your Arrival Date and picked up for return on your Departure Date. Payments for rental items are to be kept strictly between you and A&A Baby & Beach Rentals;usually ahead of time via credit card. Siesta Sands will assist only in coordination of delivery and pickup.
Note: Siesta Sands provides Guest tables, chairs and lounges on its Gulf-side deck (none permitted to be taken to beach). Items such as cribs, highchairs, playpens, strollers, beach chairs, beach towels, beach umbrellas, beach toys, etc. are not supplied.
