Beautiful Siesta Key Beach, which is located in the heart of Sarasota Florida, houses this beautiful condominium. This condominium is a 3 bedroom 2.5 bath unit, which features two master suites with king beds, two twins in a third bedroom, a queen aero bed mattress, as well as 2 sleeper sofas.
Just a 2 minute walk to the beach and pool. For 2011, Crescent Beach(Siesta Key Beach) was voted #1 most beautiful beach in all the United Stated. You will never run out of exciting activities in Sarasota Florida! Fishing, exercise room, saunas and Tennis Courts on site. Or just relax on the sugar soft sandy Siesta Key Beach or go seashell hunting. Beachwalkers paradise, Walk one mile South to the 'Point of Rocks' or head North for a 5 mile round trip beachwalk to the 'Big Pass' on the northern point.
Generally speaking, Siesta Key Beach is very quiet, but activity ramps up every Spring Break and July 4th fireworks show, which incorporates the Offshore Grand Prix Boat Races every year on Siesta Key Beach.

As a family owed rental, we look forward to providing your family with a beautiful home for vacation, a World Class Beach, and beautiful amenities!
The Owner purchased this condo in 2005
As a result of the World Class Beach and Fishing, we decided to purchase a little piece of heaven in paradise!
While waking up in the morning, enjoy the lush tropical rain forest, which can be viewed from the Master Bedroom Balcony, which has an all glass air conditioned enclosure, or from the living room lanai, which enclosed in glass as well,
The beach is beautiful & Siesta Key is a walker's paradise. The Village is 2 miles north with Stickney Point Rd a half mile south. Plenty of good restaurants & shops nearby. Loved renting bikes & also kayaks near Turtle Beach.
Photos on VRBO accurately depict the unit. Owner was responsive ahead of our visit, we did not require any interaction during our stay. The unit was clean upon our arrival. Unit has normal wear & tear to be expected from a rental unit and I would describe the overall condition as good. Things we liked best about the place included: 1) Spacious unit offering plenty of room for a family to spread out with 2 BRs/2 baths upstairs plus 1 BR & a half bath downstairs; 2) Pool was located steps out the back door that was great for reading/relaxing & offered a mix of sun or shade most of the day; 3) Complex has ample lounge chairs to help relax at the beach and the beach-side pool/restrooms are a nice convenience; 4) Complex has an updated fitness center that we enjoyed using several times.
Minor drawbacks about the unit included: 1) Road noise -- the unit is right on Midnight Pass Rd and you will hear noise from the street in the downstairs BR and upstairs guest BR. Road noise is not an issue in the living room or master BR; 2) Due to surrounding trees/foliage, the unit is dark and doesn't get much sunlight in the living room or lanai.
The beach is about a 7-8 minute walk across Midnight Pass Rd. We did not mind this distance and spent much time enjoying the beautiful sand & walking along the gulf. With smaller children, getting back & forth to the beach may be more of a consideration.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay at this unit. Every rental has its pluses & minuses and I hope our balanced comments will be helpful to future travelers as they evaluate rental options.
Owner was very accommodating; when lightbulbs or internet were out, he came promptly and replaced/fixed them. The unit itself is very well shaded; if you like cool and dark as opposed to light and bright, this is the place for you. It is a two story unit, with very spacious 2 upstairs bedrooms. The main floor bedroom (2 single beds) would be good for kids. My adult son complained that the bed was too short for him; his feet hung way over the edge (he is six foot three). In terms of kitchen equipment, it is pretty well stocked except that there are zero small glasses (for things like morning orange juice). All the glasses hold huge amounts except for a couple of champagne flutes that one would not want to give to children. I did especially appreciate that owner lets folks leave excess spices and staples in the cupboard, which fact makes cooking easier.
This was not our first time staying on Siesta Key or in using VRBO. That said, from the initial email until we left, the owner was prompt, informative, and very helpful. As for the unit itself, we had all the modern amenities you could expect on a vacation, even a wine refrigerator! The unit was tastefully decorated in a modern Key West design and there was more than enough space for our family of 8.
As for the grounds, beach, and complex amenities; I felt the complex was very much centrally located on the island and never too far from varying activities, restaurants, and shops. The complex has 2 heated pools, a wonderfully modern gym(we did not use it), fishing pier where we sat and had coffee in the morning, while looking out into the inter coastal waterway, and more than ample lounge chairs on the beach.
For those who have never been to Siesta Beach…AKA…Crescent Beach, this is one of the finest beaches in all the World and we visit it every year. If on the fence, visit this beach!
The only downfall was that we had 2 rainy days and we had to go back home. All in all, we had a great stay and look forward to coming back in the future!
On our recent vacation, we stayed on Siesta Key Beach. The Weather was hit and miss for the week; however, that did not take away from how beautiful the beach is and how comfortable the accommodations were, especially the fresh flowers and bottle of wine!
The facilities of the complex were very nice, as there are 2 heated pools, tennis courts, and a great gym, which is only a few feet from the beach. As for the unit itself, it was very clean, comfortable, and had all the supplies one could want.
All in all, a wonderful vacation. The only problem was, we had to leave to return home.
I have to admit, I skeptical, as this was my first experience using VRBO; however, from the initial email to the owner about renting this unit, until our vacation was over, they were nothing but prompt, polite, and made our vacation very relaxing and easy to enjoy.
As for the unit itself, the linens were all fresh, clean, and new. The decorations were modern and fresh, which is to say, no wicker furniture! There were plenty of paper towels, soap, toilet paper, as well as sugar, spices, etc... As for sleeping, the beds were very comfortable and there was ample room to move around, while each of us had our own space.
The grounds very very, very beautiful, as the unit looks out to a thick and lush tropical rain forest setting, where one of the two pools is nestled in. There was a big and private fishing pier, which we pretty much had to ourselves, as we fished, saw dolphins each morning, and even a two manatees!
With a short walk, we were on the beautiful and pristine beach of Siesta Key Beach! All I can say is, "WOW"!! I have been to many a beach in my travels throughout the World and all I can say is, I have never seen a more pristine beach, which does not get hot? Apparently this beach is made of 99% quartz and reflects the heat, which is great, as we had little ones with us and it was nice not to have to run like hell to the water!
There were plenty of restaurants, shops, and eateries on the barrier island, but far enough away where you had no noise or foot traffic, which lent itself to this being one of our most relaxing vacations!
Thank you again to the owner and his staff. We would recommend this to family and friends and look forward to making it back there some day.
In answer to your response to my review, you are way off base.. I emailed you and specifically asked if we were on the beach because we didn't want to cross the road, you said we were on the "Gulf ", after calling you and complaining that we were not, you said " When you cross the bridge you're on the Gulf" Portraying the time by hitting a golf ball is a poor expanation of the walk to the beach. It takes at least 10 minutes unless you're a marathon runner... I agree with you about the lounge chairs and shade, that is not in your control as well as the weather. But all rentals have extra blankets and bedding for a pull out couch, in case it does get chilly.
You never once talked us through the thermostat, you did ask after a week if we needed you to help after which I replied no since we had the blankets after that. As far as just 2 adults, I told you 2 adults with children and grandchildren visiting off and on... they were not there all of the time... Why would I rent a 3 bedroom condo for just 2 people?
I have shown many people your VRBO Listing and the description of the condo and of the area and all have said it sounds like your on the beach side, not the Bay side.. Deceiving!
If you're looking for something on the beach this is not it. you have to walk across the street to get there.I am insulted that you think "Seasoned Renters would not agree with my experience. We have rented many times and have never been so surprised when arriving at our destination. All of the reviews are not excellent if you read them all. I suppose I should have before I rented your place...
The grounds are beautiful, but we were there for the beach, ( 2 minutes to the beach) Joke.. I am not generally a picky person but I don't want any surprises. The write up on VRBO is not accurate.. Case closed...
