Tortuga, Spanish for “turtle,” finds itself appropriately named for its prominent location on Turtle Beach. Hidden away on the secluded sands, this stunning oceanfront condominium enjoys its position on the quiet end of Siesta Key. The immaculately manicured grounds are adorned tropical landscaping, towering palms and lush foliage. The location provides nearby access to many area allurements as well as a place for residents to retreat from all the surrounding activities and enjoy a slower pace of life.
Built in 1980, the complex consists of three Mediterranean inspired five-story mid-rise tower structures with 77 beachfront residences. Each building offers a variety of floor plans ranging from a two-bedroom condo with 1,012 square feet of living space to a luxurious penthouse with 3,100 square feet.
The three penthouses make up the top floor of each building. Each residence contains luxurious features such as vaulted ceilings and extended terraces for viewing the breathtaking gulf and beautiful sunsets. Additionally, owners of one of the exclusive penthouses have the advantage of covered and secured parking for a second car. With a liberal rental policy requiring only a one-month minimum rental, it is no wonder why Tortuga is a popular choice among investors.

Residents also have access to all that the bayside of the island has to offer. Their sister property, across the street, welcomes the use of their bayside boat docks, tennis courts, and fishing piers right on the Sarasota Bay.
While Tortuga enjoys a more secluded location, away from the crowd, residents are still less than a ten-minute drive to the Siesta Key Public Beach and Village. Crescent Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world with its vast beach full of powdery white crushed quartz sand. There are plenty of opportunities for fun in the sun at this popular spot, including beach volleyball, a playground, concession stands, sandcastle competitions, and the charming Sunday evening drum circle. Just down the street, lies the Village, home to a charming collection of restaurants and shops.
Siesta Key is an eight-mile barrier island off the coast of Sarasota with two bridges connecting it to the mainland. Tortuga is close to the south bridge, granting residents and guests quick access to many other points of interest. Downtown Sarasota, St Armands Circle, Longboat Key, and Lido Key are all within a short twenty-minute drive. However, with everything so conveniently located on the island, those who select this oceanfront retreat may have a hard time finding a reason to leave the island at all.
