Mariner’s Inlet

Midnight Cove

Condo buyers who are inclined to don a boat captain’s cap would love keeping a watch on units becoming available at the Mariner’s Inlet on Siesta Key. This condominium, though small, has all the trappings of a boating community. Its site on 9042 Midnight Pass Road directly backs up to the Blind Pass Lagoon that largely defines the charm of many waterfront Siesta Key condos for sale.

This lagoon provides a navigable passage to Little Sarasota Bay and its Intracoastal Waterway channel leading to many points of interest along the Southwest Florida coastline. Capitalizing on this, Mariner’s Inlet was developed with private boat slips for its residents to share in the boating lifestyle woven in many waterfront Siesta Key condos for sale.

Mariner’s Inlet has four docks with two boat slips each. Condo owners’ use of these facilities is bundled with the condominium’s fees. Access to the docks’ boat slips is on a first-come-first serve basis.

Complementing these facilities, the Turtle Beach Park just a short distance from Mariner’s Inlet likewise provides a public boat ramp. Many boating enthusiasts frequent this area, so like-minded condo residents would be in good company exploring the nearby waters.
