BEACH ATTENDANT: SKBC

Siesta Key Beach Chairs or “SKBC” is a rental-based beach, which means that it is your job to sell.  

 

Property Boundaries:

The north boundary is easy.  We share a boundary with Sandpiper.  The boundary line runs behind the beach umbrella box.  

The south boundary is more difficult. The property line follows the fence line that is hidden behind the dune.   The anchorage has a 10 foot strip between Siesta Sun and Breakers.  Note, the path for The Anchorage crosses over the boundary line (and on to Siesta Sun’s property).  As an accommodation, Siesta Sun agree to let the path cross the line to protect the sea grapes, but the actual boundary should be used on the beach. 

 

 

WHO WE SERVE:

We provide beach service for two different populations

  1. Siesta Sun Siesta Sun guests staying in a 1 bedroom unit receive one complimentary set of lounge chairs.  If the guest is saying in a two bedroom, they are entitled to two complimentary sets.  The two bedroom units are 16, 15, 21 and 25.  Book all complimentary set in beachy using the Multi-Use Pass for unit where the guest is staying.  Siesta Sun receive 50% off of our standard prices for any additional gear.

3.   Anyone Else ($60 plus taxes and fees for a set ($68.05 total). 

UNIQUE WRINKLES:  

THE MULTI-USE PASS:  To check-in Siesta Sun guests, you must verify the name and room number.  Once you verify that information, book a set of chairs on beachy.  Use a set with the prefix Guest.  Once it is in the cart, add a Multi-Use Pass.  Watch the video below for more information.

ADVANCED BOOKINGS:  Our website, www.siestakeybeachchairs.com, generates advanced reservations. 

  • LOOK FOR YOUR GUESTS:  Most people who booked in advance will find you by walking down beach access 12 and turning right.  It is about 150 paces from beach access 12 to SKBC.  The guests will be looking for you.  They have been told to look for the beach attendant wearing the red shirt.  Pay attention and look for those looking for you. 
  • DON’T GO TO LUNCH IF YOU ARE WAITING FOR ADVANCED BOOKINGS TO ARRIVE.  If you’re about ready to take a lunch break but some guests with reservations have not arrived, text the beach string.  For example:  “The Miller party has not arrived.  I’m planning on taking lunch at 12:30.  Please check on their ETA.”  Someone at the shop will reach out to the Miller party and will be in touch.  

WHat bathroom to use:

There are no restrooms on site.  You may use the Calini pool bathroom.  The gate code for the beach access is 2351.  You may use the restroom at the shop or in the shop storeroom.  (If you make a mess in the shop or storeroom restroom, you must clean it up.)  You may use the restroom at 7-Eleven.
