GIVEAWAY: Win a 2 Night Stay in a RESORT!

Would you like to win a FREE 2-night, 3-day stay in a studio or one-bedroom unit at The Beach Club on Siesta Key????

Siesta Key Beach is central Sarasota’s gateway to the sparkling waters of the Gulf of Mexico, an island that combines luxurious amenities with a relaxed vibe that appeals to both visitors and locals! The beautiful Siesta Key’s beaches have been rated #1 in the US! Unlike beaches elsewhere that are made up mostly of coral, Siesta Beach’s sand is 99% quartz. Even on the hottest days, the sand is so reflective that it feels cool underfoot. Shallow water depth in the near shore area together with year round lifeguard protection, makes this one of the safest beaches in the County and great for small children!


Resort Vacations is giving away a complimentary 2-night, 3 day stay in a studio or one-bedroom unit at The Beach Club at Siesta Key. Located on the beach with all of the amenities you could want and all of the attractions you could dream up- this is a perfect getaway vacation!

  1. So many reasons as to why I should win…first and foremost would be to refresh my mind & soul! The past 8 months have been the most trying months of my life…I have faced the challenges of a divorce, my mother being diagnosed with lymphoma and the challenges of learning how to manage all this while raising a beautiful & wonderful young daughter. A mini vacation would be a huge blessing right now!

  2. Second Post, because #1 didn’t go through correctly!

    I would love to win this vacation to take my Baby doll, Ivanna away for some well deserved R & R. My daughter, Ivanna has recently been diagnosed with 2 very serious illnesses and started treatment last week. These treatments are exhausting and cause serious side effects. During this all, Ivanna remains steadfast in her faith and love for Jesus and displays the Joy of the Lord. The day after her first Chemo Shot she went to minister to our elderly neighbor who recently had his leg amputated. She is always thinking of others and loves to serve the Lord. Even though she is growing into a young lady, she will always be my Baby doll!

  4. I would love to win this get away for so many reasons. My husband and I have never been away just the two of us. Shortly after my first son was born, he lost his job. We struggled for a while until we finally swallowed our pride and moved in with my parents who have been a huge blessing. We canceled the big dream wedding we were planning and quietly got married at the courthouse. Shortly after, we found out we were expecting our second when my son was just 6 months old. Being in no position to financial provide for another we were told many times by many people it would be smart to abort the pregnancy. My little blessing is now 8 months old and I can’t imagine my life without her. Despite our struggles my husband has 100% supported our family with his grace and determination. He’s spent every day out looking for a job an just this week was hired at an amazing company. I would love this getaway for him and the hard work he does for our family, to celebrate out marriage that we never had the chance to, and to reconnect and spend time with my biggest supporter ❤

  5. I would love to have this getaway for me and my husband. Since having a baby we have not been able to get away. Having a 2 month old has put stress on our marriage. I would love the opportunity to get way with him, relax, and have dedicated time just for him. This would be a great father’s day present for him!

  6. You see I would love to win this trip for my wonderful, self-less mother in law!! My mother in law is amazing! I cant even list all the reasons why on here but here are a few…She has been a RN nurse for 30+ years which meant when she and my father in law signed up to be foster parents years ago they would receive all the special needs children to love on. During that time they adopted two infant special needs children to add to their already growing family (she had two biological children, Amanda and Andy -my husband). In 2005 they lost one of their adopted children, Chance (he had Cerebral Palsy) at the age of 21. And two years later she lost her husband to a massive heart attack at the age of 53. Those were very hard years. But my mother in law is strong!! She still works the night shift as a RN part time so that she can care for my children or my sister in laws children during the day. Plus she lives with her elderly mother and her youngest daughter who need care as well. She picks my kids up from school and she totes them around to and fro. She watches my kids so my husband and I can go on dates at least once a week. She says those times with your husband are important! She will drop anything for us or my sister in law. She doesn’t like to fly so the only vacations she takes are with us to a cabin in Georgia maybe once every couple of years. She LOVES the beach. I would love to win this for her so she can take a few days off to spend on HERSELF! 🙂

  7. I would love to be the winner of this fabulous getaway. My husband lost his job in 2008, and still does not have a job. We lost our home and our vehicle. I have been the only one working supporting our family. we haven’t had a vacation since 2005 . This vacation getaway would be great.

  8. So many reasons why I would love the opportunity to win…..My Husband and I will celebrate our 28th Anniversary on July 27th and together a total of 33 years. We did not have the opportunity of a “honeymoon” as my Husband was serving our great Country with U.S.M.C,
    After our wedding being delayed 5 months, he had just enough time to return home to get married and return to his duty station. Our 1st’s of everything (Thanksgiving, Christmas, Birthdays, New Years and Anniversary) were spent away as he was serving overseas.
    Our youngest just graduated from High School so this fall we will have 2 in College. This is only accomplished by many sacrifices and hard work. Since 2011 through March 2013,
    5 close Family members have been called to heavenly shores. We are both ready for some
    R & R and it is time to reconnect as we move to a new chapter of empty nesters this Fall.

  9. I have my inlaws coming from Europe soon. It will be fun to win this package for them.

  10. because we haven’t had a vacation since our honeymoon 7 years ago. to win a vacation for us and our 4 year old would be a blessing

  11. I would love to win because…… My husband and I of 1 year are expecting our first baby come October! Pregnancy has been the hardest endeavor of my life so far because of being a high risk pregnancy (due to a blood clotting disorder) and constant sickness leaving me with many hospital visits and doctor visits. I think it would be an amazing Babymoon for me and my husband, to keep our minds off of all the craziness of the past few months. Andddd we love The Snap Mom!!!!

  12. Pick me, pick me! We would LOVE to win because baby #3 is coming in September and we would love to have a romantic getaway before this little one arrives. My hubby has also been working insane hours lately and I would LOVE to surprise him with this! I am a SAHM so I don’t bring in any money and I think it would be nice to surprise him with something like this since he works so hard and is the bread winner of the family. I may not make us money, but I can enter contests for free vacations! 🙂

  13. I should win because I would love to spend time relaxing with my family after all the long hours of work. Also I don’t even remember when was the last time I spent time alone with my hubby with no kiddos around. Good Luck to everyone!

  14. We would love to win a stay-cation at the beach. We don’t get to the beach as often as I would like because we both work full-time so the weekends are full of cleaning and other housework. So a weekend at the beach with the kids would be great!

  15. Well, I did some research on RVA in the Siesta Key location and noticed that it has a “thriving artist’s colony”. Sounds really interesting as I’m an artist myself. Also, the Daiquiri Deck sound just like the place for me, all those fruity drinks they serve there must be mighty delicious. And overall, I like that Siesta Key has a low-key vibe– perfect for a quiet vacation after a long school year of teaching. Thank you for the opportunity! Liked both pages on Facebook and shared the giveaway post as Elena Vo.

  16. Our family of four (kids age 5 and 10) is moving to Africa in August to be missionaries for a minimum of 2-4 years. We sold all of our belongings (except what we could fit into 2 suitcases each) and rented our home and just moved into the basement of a family member. It would be great to have a relaxing trip away as a family prior to moving to a third world country.

  17. I would LOVE to win this vacation!! I am a mother of three energetic kids who love the beach, my husband works very hard and long hours, this trip would do wonders for our family!

  18. I am a SAHM and this would be great for a break!

  19. Our family is in the process of moving to Africa to be missionaries. We moved out of our house this past weekend and we are now living out of suitcases in my father’s basement until we raise the remaining funds needed for our move to Africa. My wife and I have 2 young children and we would love to let them enjoy one last trip before we head to Africa to live there and the beach would be a great place for them to stretch their legs and enjoy the sun. We could also use the trip to allow us the opportunity to go to other places to share about our upcoming mission’s work. Here is a link to a video about what we will be doing in Africa:

    and our blog is: Thank you for the opportunity and keep up the good work.

  20. I really need a vacation… We arent able to ever get away with all the kids since reece has football workouts and the week the trio is is the only week he is off and it would be great to be able to go on a trip with all the kids…

    Thank you

  21. How fun this would be! Who’s got the money for a vacay!? I think its great The Snap Mom is making this possible. Thank you for taking care of us Moms so we can take care of our families.

  22. I would love to win this. I am a fairly recently single mother of 5 kids( 7,5,3,21months, and 4 months) I just separated from my husband of 9 years to get away from avery unhealthy bad home situation. I don’t receive a lot of support from him and do not have my family close by(I do live in the 2 spare rooms at my dads but he is never really home as he works quite a bit. while I have been exceptionally blessed to have good loving friends that have helped me here and there the daily ongoing burden is pretty much entirely on me, whats more is I work one day a week to supplement what I can income wise. I have really been battling with some post partum depression or I don’t know what -just generally wanting to “get away from it all” for a time to breathe and maybe sleep in just one day! somedays I just don’t even want to get out of bed but I push through and make it day by day unfortunately that’s all I feel like im doing “making it” I would so benefit from this and it would be such a blessing during this challenging time. I just want to take a time away so I can come back with a fresh outlook and be the mother I know God created me to be and that my beautiful babies so desperately need and deserve instead of this burnt out worn out tired grouchy bear I know I have been!

  23. This is a great give-away! Siesta Key is so beautiful. My fiance and I could really use this!! We’ve been together 6 1/2 years and never have been on any trips because of either work or not having the money. We’ve just been stressed out with everyday life lately and now that we’re parents to our beautiful 1 year old, we could really use some R&R!!

  24. I’m a stay-at-home dad to my wonderful 2 yr old daughter. My wife works very hard everyday at her job and often puts in long hours. I try to give her time to relax when she gets home, but I know deep down, a getaway is what she really needs. We haven’t traveled anywhere since our honeymoon in the Smokey Mtns 7 years ago. Whitney, this trip would mean the world to us. We recently moved and don’t have a lot of extra money for a vacation but we really could use one about now (if you’ve ever moved with a toddler, you’d understand!). Thanks for this wonderful opportunity!

  25. We haven’t taken a vacation in over 10 years. The last vacation we took was a 3-day wknd at a state park. Don’t get me wrong, it was nice, but we could really use a true getaway to a warm destination. I’d love to surprise my hubby with this as our 20 year anniversary is this Fall!!

  26. I would love to win this trip because my husband deserves it! He works very hard to provide for our family.It would be so nice to surprise with a gift like this!

  27. not sure my first comment worked so gonna try again. 🙂 my hubster and I soooo need a mini vaca! not sure if we need it more than anyone else (lots of great stories posted already), but we haven’t had a getaway in over two years. it’s time!! 🙂

  28. This would be an awesome mini vacation for my husband and I before baby number 4 is born. Who knows when we would be able to get another vacation with just the 2 of us again.

  29. Love Joan’s comment!
    I’d like to win to give this trip to a friend. It would be a surprise (Shhh). She has been sick for a long time and just recently diagnosed with a difficult disease. She is a wonderful christian young lady with a beautiful spirit and outlook. It would be a blessing if her mom could take her away for a relaxing weekend. Thanks!!

  30. I should win because me and my hubby has never had a honeymoon or vacation and we have been married for 6 years. Hubby works everyday driving a truck and I worked at a nursing home until health issues developed and I had to quit. now I stay home and do what I can. We cannot afford a vacation but would love this one. Sharma Darby

  31. I would so love to win this so I could take my husband on a trip to Sarasota. Over the last 3 1/2 years we have cared for my 90 plus year old Grandparents. Bob has made a ton of sacrifices so that they could stay in our home. We have not had more than a few days off together over that time and we really need some time together. Bob has even taken some of his own paid vacation time off from work to care for my Grandparents while I had a business trip or two. He also keeps up with the weekends so that I can schedule photography jobs. We used to live in Sarasota, so a few days down there to visit some close friends and family would be very special. <3 I could probably get my Dad to stay with my Granny if we had a long weekend away.

  32. What a blessing to be able to have “a stay-cation” on the most amazing beach ever! As much as we love the beach, with 3 little ones it is not always easy to get there. My husband and I have been married over 11 years and have never been able to get away without the kids. With this being “close” to home it would be attainable to leave them with Nana for one night to relax and enjoy a family night too for the second night! Best of both worlds… night of relaxation and family memories all in one weekend!

  33. Well first off… wow!! What an awesome opportunity that you guys are giving away. After reading all the other posts it is hard to even try to want to win this myself. I would honestly love to get away for the weekend to relax and forget all of my troubles, but I don’t even know how you guys are going to choose between everyone! Being a single mother it is hard balancing the daily tasks of work and being both mother and father in a way. It is kind of like playing good cop bad cop. I find myself struggling with wanting to love and baby my children, but yet be stern and unwavering in their discipline and structure to try to teach them how to be productive members of society. Between work, my kids, fixing my house, and trying to study for the CPA exam I find that I am beyond stressed at times that I just cry because that is all I can do. But I have my basic needs, and while this vacation would be absolutely wonderful and much needed, I hope you guys pick someone else as it seems that there are others that truly could use a vacation! Love everything you ladies are doing!

  34. My husband, who is a Deputy in Sarasota works tons of crazy hours and I work part time and luckily this year we have been able to break even most months. We would love to take our 4 boys on a getaway beach trip. We live in Myakka so normally a trip to the beach involves an hour drive each way, which means it doesn’t happen very often. Thanks do much for all your info, DIY’s, interviews, and giveaways! I have enjoyed everything I’ve seen so far on!

  35. Okay, while I don’t have a large brood of children, I do love them very much, and I have taught literally thousands in my 21 years as a school teacher at every grade level. I’ve been an elective business education teacher, reading teacher, media specialist, gifted teacher, and computer technology teacher. You’ve all read the bleak reports about Manatee County and the drastic pay cuts we have received over the last 5 years. I’m National Board Certified also and that was a huge pay supplement of nearly $9,000 that Florida took away as well. As a single mom to a teenage daughter in 10th grade you can only imagine that our vacay budget is non-existent. Both of our birthdays are this summer. It would be a fantastic way to celebrate by having a get-away at this resort on Siesta Key!

  36. My husband and my one year anniversary is coming up early in August. He proposed to me at sunset on Siesta Key Beach, and we went back to Sarasota for our honeymoon. This would be a great anniversary get-away. 🙂

  37. My husband and I have been together for 12 years (married almost 10) and have 4 children.

    My husband works a crazy amount of hours at 2 jobs to make ends meet and so we can get out of debt. Because of the long work commute, all the work hours, and a tight budget, it’s really difficult, time-wise and budget-wise, to spend fun, quality family time together.

    If we won this getaway, as much as I would LOVE to have a weekend getaway alone with my husband, I would actually much rather get away with the whole family and make lasting memories all together! We have never been on a family vacation with all 4 kids, and our last and only other real vacation was when #3 was a baby.

    I know there are so many deserving couples/families, but I couldn’t pass up putting my name in the hat! It would be such a blessing to get away for a weekend with my husband and kids…at my very favorite place…the beach!

  38. I would love to win this! My hubby and I’s anniversary is June 20th and he has been away working in Baltimore so this would be a perfect get away for us while he is home to celebrate our anniversary!

  39. Every year when our anniversary rolls around we are preparing our classrooms and diving into the first week of school. This year we will be celebrating our 17th anniversary. It would be fun to do something early this year.

  40. I would love to win because in the six years of marriage we just celebrated, we have NEVER been on vacation, except a short trip to california when we got married. We only ever go to my husband’s home state to visit his family. Hubby owns a business that he never gets time away from. Plus we are on one income so things get a little tight. We only have a date alone once a year when I leave our kids (3 and 7 months) with my mom for a few hours. Please pick me!!!

  41. I would love this as an anniversary gift for my husband and me! This summer we will be celebrating 10 wonderful years together! I can think of no better way to celebrate than on the beautiful beaches of Siesta Key!!!

  42. Thank ladies for putting this together!!! I think my family should be chosen because not only have me and hubby not had a honey moon but we have never had a relaxing family vacation! I am pregnant with our 3rd child and it would be nice to just get away for a weekend and relax!

  43. This would be awesome! My hubby and I could so use this! We’ve haven’t had a vacation for just the two of us since, well never. We got married in ’07, had twin girls in ’10, and 5 weeks ago suffered the loss of our baby girl 4.5 hours after she was born. Let me tell ya, this would do wonders for us!

  44. With three kids, sports and school life gets hectic, gone are the days where you get to put your toes in the sand and reconnect with your partner. We are not from Florida but the most relaxing thing to us is the beach, nothing but sand, the sound of the ocean and a sweet drink in our hand. Thank you for your time and consideration. Have a blessed day

  45. I should win because it would be the perfect 2nd anniversary getaway! We have a 7 month old and it would be nice not to travel far so our parents could watch him and we would be close by in case of an emergency. I hope you pick me!

  46. My husband and I will be celebrating our third anniversary this summer. We have an 18 month old and have yet to leave her overnight. This would be the perfect nearby getaway for us!

  47. I have been without a/c in my house for 2 weeks. I think i’ve earned a free vacation!! BOOM someone beat that 😉

  48. I would love to win this because my husband and I have not gone on alone vacation in over 5 years! It would be great to enjoy the beach without beach toys for once

  49. Thank you for making opportunities like this happen, Krystle and Whitney.

  50. My husband and I would love to travel back to Sarasota, where we first met, to introduce our 5-month-old daughter, Elizabeth, to our Florida friends.

    We are a single-income family saving up every scrap we can to buy our first house. Traveling to Siesta Key would be so wonderful, since we cannot afford the trip to see everyone otherwise.

  51. I would love to win this vacation because we have yet to go on a vacation as a family of four and it’s been about 5 years since we’ve actually gotten to go on a vacation. We save and pay bills and have just enough to let the girls enjoy their yearly activities. Vacations are a luxury and I would love to go on one! 😉

  52. This would be an amazing chance for a getaway before our 4th baby makes its arrival towards the end of this year. Things are crazy now with our oldest being 4 and youngest 21 months…it’s only going to get crazier (and better) when the new baby is here! That, and we’ve only had 1 vacation in 8 years of marriage….

  53. My husband and I have an anniversary coming up, and I would loooooooove to surprise him with a beach getaway!! Thank you for an incredible giveaway!!! 😀

  54. My husband and I have been remodeling and adding an addition to our house and doing alot of it ourselves has been stressful on our marriage. I would love to spend some time on the beach with him and our one year old son! A vacation would be the ticket to destress and rebuild our marriage!

  55. I could use a vacation with my husband after having a almost 3 year old and a 4 month old 🙂

  56. I would love to win this for my husband and I. The reason I think I should win is because I have two children under the age of 3, I have a full time job and I am a full time student working on earning a college degree. Due to all of this, we have not had a vacation of any kind since our honeymoon, 7 years ago!! Winning this would be amazing!!

  57. It would be nice to have a siesta at Siesta Key. My husband and got married in 2009. We’ve had a few getaways since then but nothing like this. My husband works two full time jobs and he has been wanting to go to the beach and we have yet to make it. This would be an awesome Fathers Day gift.

  58. I need a vacation. Not only do I need a vacation but my partner does too.

    Here are my seven reasons why you should choose my family!

    1 – My partner nor I have had a REAL vacation in over five years.
    2- I turn 30 the day you announce your winner – that would be an AWESOME 30th birthday happening!
    3 – We have had trouble getting to the beach since Andrea was born and this would give us a great way to spend an entire weekend focusing on our family and Andrea’s relationship with water.
    4- Both my partner and I work hard for our communities. He does landscaping and I work with a local community garden.
    5- My partner works 60+ hours per week. 52 weeks out of the year! His only vacation in the last two years was when I gave birth to our daughter he took a week off and waited on us, cooked for us and generally was amazing.
    6- We are extremely deserving of such a break and have not had the opportunity to treat ourselves to anything similar since we met.
    7- Because we REALLY REALLY need an excuse to forget about the world and dive into our happy place,

    Thank You

  59. My husband and got married in March 2012. In September we moved into a house and the next day two ministry students moved in and are with us until June 13th. A week after the move Michael had a heart attack and had a stent done. In November the stent plugged again and had to be redone. In April it plugged again and on April 29th he had open heart surgery. We love the beach and met for the first time at the beach. It would be wonderful to have a get away at the beach for us to finally be newly weds and enjoy a few days to ourselves.

  60. Would be sooo Happy to win this beautiful vacation for my Lovely husband ,who didn’t have any vacation in 3 years.Working extremely hard every day 6-7 days a week for our family . We love him unconditionally and it can be such a Hugh present for the Father’s Day !!

  61. I am getting married in August and my LO will be just a year old. Being on a tight budget this would be wonderful. Planning a wedding isn’t easy, especially when you are doing it all your self. We both could use this R&R. I really hope we win!!!

  62. Pick me pick me!

  63. This would be a wonderful getaway, my husband and I would love such an opportunity

  64. Oh how we need this! we haven’t had a vacation in 3 years. Eli’s eczema healing is far enough along that he now tolerates the beach sand and my girls LOVE swimming and sandcastles and my husband NEEDS to RE-LAX!!! choose us!!! i ‘liked’, i ‘shared’ and i ‘commented’ (more than once i’m pretty sure LOL!!) 😉

  65. I should win because I birthed Whitney J!
