Fly into Sarasota (SRQ), Tampa (TPA) or Fort Myers (RSW) on Saturday for the 7 night stay.

All students stay at this vacation condo resort in exchange for use of the pool. Condos are two or three bedrooms/two baths. It’s a very good situation. Share with another classmate if you wish. Let us know. We will pair you if the opportunity arises. Let us know if you want to be a Roommate in Parallel. Condo rentals are Saturday to Saturday (7 nights). They will not rent for fewer nights. Staying the 7 nights is an advantage for learning and resting. 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. 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.

The vacation rental provides the room, the warm ample pool (depth range 3.5 to 8 feet), and the savings of not renting a car. At the Anchorage, there are free taxis to Siesta Village (just pay tips). Restaurants, shops, and Siesta Key beaches are within walking distance of your condo. The pool is also excellent for us. The staff is pleasant and helpful.

Make Sharing A Condo Work for You

The accommodations at The Anchorage are ideally located and the price is right for sharing a 2 bedroom/2 bath condo for a week. But perhaps you’d like to have your space to yourself.

Let’s make a deal among students who want the benefits of sharing but without the social obligation — such as being conversational, waiting for the other to go to class at the same time, sharing your butter! Announcing: “Roommates in Parallel”

It is understood that two class members who share a condo as a Roommate in Parallel have agreed to occupy the condo in parallel, meaning they each do their own thing and there’s no expectation of being sociable. Of course a basic level of common courtesy is assumed: no arias in full voice in the living room. Each uses the common spaces—kitchen, living room, and lanai as though there is no one else to talk to so that you each have your alone time. The point is to know you’ve each given yourself and your classmate permission to be quiet the whole time rather than interacting.
If this helps a few people get to class this summer, it’s worthwhile.
Let us know if you want to be a Roommate in Parallel (RP). We’ll connect you if someone is available.

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.

Eight students, maximum, six minimum by 45 days before the start date. A $200 nonrefundable deposit reserves your space in class. Balance is due by July 25, 2024. The price now includes purchase of a tether for use in class and afterward ($30 for registered students). Your balance will be reduced by $30 if you already own one.

The course fee is nonrefundable with the exception of our Guarantee.

Buy a wetsuit shirt before the course. It should be 1-2 mm thickness and fit like your skin: no gaps. Florida Under Water Sports in Sarasota gives good discounts to Miracle Swimming students. A list of online sources will be sent after your registration.

Shopping Cart alert: some of the words in the shopping cart are confusing. We’re working to get them changed. Please pay attention only to the “Due Today” line. That is all that will be charged.

Payments taken by credit card and e-check.

We recommend that you purchase trip insurance. Allianz is a source.


*This location will change if we’re able to confirm a new location for class that allows people to choose their own accommodations. We hope to know by May 22.
