All students stay at this vacation condo resort in exchange for use of the pool. Condos are two or three bedrooms/two baths. Share with another classmate if you wish by letting us know your intent. Rentals are Saturday to Saturday (7 nights). They will not rent for 5 nights. Staying the 7 nights is an advantage for learning. Reserve by calling Rachele at The Anchorage. Let them know you’re a Miracle Swimming student when you make your reservation. Rates are lowest for the lower three floors and increase on upper floors. There is another company that rents units at The Anchorage. Our arrangement to use the pool is not with them, so please do not use them unless The Anchorage says they have no units left.

Why do we use hotels? Because we don’t have our own pool, because public pools are too cold, and because most of our clientele flies or drives from out of town and they need a room. Staying at a vacation rental condo provides the room, the warm, ample pool, and the savings of not renting a car. At the Anchorage, there are free taxis to Siesta Village (just pay tips) and there are restaurants, shops, and Siesta Key beaches within walking distance. It’s a very good situation. The pool is also excellent for us. The staff is pleasant and helpful.

If you live locally, you may stay at home if there are enough students staying there to make it worth their while. Please call us to check: 941 921 6420.
