Dream wedding come true!!
After diligently researching every beach wedding venue within a 2-hour drive of Tampa, we came across Sunset Beach Resort Siesta Key and knew we had found our dream wedding location. No other venue came close to offering everything we needed: capacity for 200+ guests, lodging for our entire wedding party (14 couples), an 80-room bungalow-style hotel across the street for our out-of-town guests, hassle-free parking, the flexibility to bring in our own booze, bartender and caterers (perfect venue for food trucks!) saving us a ton of money, and to decorate as we pleased (hello vintage sofas, farm tables and whiskey barrel cocktail tables :)), the cutest little beach town within walking distance for the after party and for out-of-town guests to enjoy a true Florida vacation,… and all of this on the #1 beach in the US! Chelly and Sheila were the most gracious hosts you could hope for, pretty much saying yes to all of my unusual requests, things a stuffy hotel would not have allowed; plus the beach is private so no permits were needed... all things you have to worry about pretty much everywhere else. To top it off, we could not have been luckier with the weather in early December - lows of 70 and highs of 80 all week! Thank you Chelly and Sheila for giving me the fairytale wedding I had always dreamed of!Sent on 12/30/2018

We stayed here when my fiance proposed and learned they hosted weddings too. We knew right away this was the place. Chelly, Sheila, and Billy, owners of the Sunset Beach Resort Siesta Key are some of the best host ever. They took special care that our wedding week expectations were met on all fronts for both me and my new husband as well as all our friends and family that stayed on the property with us. Their resort is the absolute best place to have not only your wedding ceremony but the wedding reception too, right there on the property. Each unit has its own special feel and amazing views of the beach, which is literally feet away. The property is so well maintained and they keep it up on a daily basis. They are always just a phone call away to answer any questions you may have. If your getting married on the beach, there is no better location, then Sunset Beach Resort Siesta Key. You wont be disappointed and you and your guest will be raving about it. We highly recommend it without reservation.

Our wedding was an absolute dream. Every single person was so incredibly helpful, responsive and easy to work with. Our rooms were IMPECCABLY clean, beautifully decorated and of course, steps from the beach. I want to keep this hidden gem all to myself, but I also want to shout from the mountaintops about how incredible this place is. Seriously, perfect isn't a big enough word to cover it. Do yourself a favor and book here for a small, intimate wedding that your guests will be talking about for years to come!
A beautiful venue on the beach with several different homes to rent for your family and guests. The location is centrally situated on Siesta Key in the Village- near restaurants, shops, bars, and more beach!
