Landlords’ Turf

Sea Shell’s neighborhood is a touristy area attracting seasonal renters. It is packed with beach resorts ranging from multi-story condominiums to smaller single-story rental apartments, hotels, and motels. Most of these establishments rent by the week, but there are also those offering a daily rate like Sea Shell.

The condominium’s locality is also host to the Crescent Plaza, a small village of shops, restaurants, and local service providers and rental outfits. With Stickney Point Road just around the corner, the Sarasota mainland and its diverse points of interest are only minutes away from the Sea Shell condominium. This is a big plus for renting visitors who want to enjoy some nightlife or experience the cultural delights of Sarasota.

Enticing Beach Base

Sea Shell

The Crescent Beach setting of Sea Shell condos for sale is as beautiful as its counterpart Siesta Beach on the northern side of the island. So named because of its crescent moon-shaped shoreline, Crescent Beach is narrower than Siesta Beach, but its sands are as white and powdery. The water off Crescent Beach is also calm and shallow, conducive for swimmers.

What’s even more, the southern stretch of Crescent Beach holds Points of Rocks noted for its limestone rock formation extending into the clear waters of the Gulf. This natural features make this offshore stretch an ideal spot for snorkeling.

Notably, these rocks are only localized at Point-of-Rocks and do not at all interfere with swimmers or beach activities on Crescent Beach. Also, it is possible to walk from Point-of-Rocks all the way to the Siesta Public Beach and back. A round trip walk at a fairly leisurely pace could be done in about an hour.

Venturing southward to Turtle Beach, another Siesta Key attraction, is another possibility for visitors who want to make the most out of a visit to the island. This beach offers a sloping and newly rejuvenated shoreline that well-suited for beachcombers and shell collectors. It also provides picnic areas, a playground, a volleyball court, a horseshoe pit, and a boat launch.
