Tortuga Condos for Sale – Siesta Key

Tortuga

Tortuga is one of the ideal choices for buyers of Siesta Key condos for sale looking for secluded properties but with convenient access to urban amenities.

This condominium, built in 1980, is located in the block of 8730 Midnight Pass at the quieter southern part of Siesta Key. Stickney Point Bridge, the nearest of the two spans linking Siesta Key to the cosmopolitan centers of the mainland, is only about 2 miles north of Tortuga.

Beachfront Strength

Tortuga

Its gulf-front location helps bring this property not only to short lists of condo buyers but also to the wish list of island vacationers who favor a less crowded place to stay. Tortuga sits off a stretch of Turtle Beach which is less frequented by tourists compared with the Siesta and Crescent beaches on the northern part of the key.

Turtle Beach was so named because it is one of the seasonal Gulf Coast nesting grounds of sea turtles which typically come from May to October. Besides the annual visits of these charming marine creatures (called tortuga in Spanish), the attractions of this beach include its park featuring such facilities as picnic pavilion and picnic shelters, park benches, grills, outdoor showers and restrooms.

The Turtle Beach Park, which is located less than half a mile south of Tortuga, also has a volleyball court, playground, horseshoe pit and a canoe/kayak launch at the Blind Pass Lagoon nearby. Renourished in 2016, Turtle Beach too is now some 150 feet wider, making it more attractive and its waters more conducive to such activities as swimming and fishing.

Sharp Market Interest

Tortuga

This million-dollar project appears to have helped spur market interest in Tortuga condos for sale which has a total stock of just 77 units. Ownership of five condos changed hands in this property during the 12-month period ending May 2017. The listed prices for these residences range from around the mid-$300s up to the high $700s, featuring living areas of between 940 and 1,650 square feet with choices in one- or two-bedroom layouts.

Keeping a Tortuga unit as an investment property and a seasonal home is a possibility that is worth exploring. A condo at the Tortuga is leasable for a one-month minimum thrice a year, and it has all the bells and whistles that could attract regular tenants, in addition to amenities perfect for year-round residents.

Abundant Neighborhood Perks

Tortuga

Besides its indoor and outdoor pool, this condominium has an onsite manager and a clubhouse offering plenty of social events. Cooperative arrangements have also been made for access of Tortuga residents and guests to the tennis courts and the boat docks for lease at the opposite condominium, Turtle Bay.

A bus stop near the condominium enables convenient trips to the island’s commercial centers in Crescent Village and Siesta Village, more so now that a free trolley is available up to Turtle Beach. Stickney Point Bridge a short distance north of the Tortuga is gateway to even more life and leisure activities that make this property one great place to start a search for Siesta Key condos for sale.
