Sandcastles: Spotlight on The Pointe at Midnight Pass – A personal note from Phillip Mongeau, a resident of The Pointe at Midnight Pass

What’s hiding at the south end of Siesta Key?

At the southernmost tip of Siesta Key, past the flashing road signs announcing no outlet or turn-around, a simple gate leads to a hidden gem: The Pointe on Siesta Key. This condo complex consists of two 10-story buildings on five acres of perfectly groomed property on a peninsula with water on three sides.

Overlooking the Neville Marine Park on Little Sarasota Bay and Blind Pass, this magical enclosure is home to some amazing wildlife: some of the most beautiful birds in Florida, mullet leaping without warning, and dolphins playing with abandon. Thanks to the Pointe’s state of the art kayak racks, residents can join the constant flow of aquatic life without having to paddle out of sight of their homes. Within minutes, kayakers can explore hidden coves in the par, or take a picnic to the isolated beach at Midnight Pass where sandpipers rush back and forth with the receding waves as the sunset spreads its golden glow on the sparkling water.

For less athletic souls, a small island attached to the property beckons with welcoming benches and a gazebo equipped with a barbecue grill and tables. You might be visited by manatees or dolphins while you dine or be serenaded by osprey chicks from a nearby nest. There is also a clubhouse at the opposite end of the property, equipped with a deck with barbecue equipment, tables and heat lamps. The clubhouse, with a full kitchen, is also available for hosting private events. The Pointe’s regular social functions are for all residents.

A new seawall surrounding the property features a rambling sidewalk that allows for leisurely strolls about the property. Private docks (available on the eastern side), can accommodate boats up to 25’ and complete the Pointe’s aquatic surroundings. There is also a lighted tennis court, pickleball courts, and a pool with a hot tub. Each building has a gym for keeping in shape, a game room, and restrooms with showers and saunas.

Three-month minimums on rentals ensure that you’re not living next door to a weekly rental unit. Your neighbors become friends in this very social environment. Watch for units that may become available for an active life in a beautiful setting.
