About David pokorny

We fell in love with Siesta Key almost 18 years ago. As a family we have visited many locations around the world but always came back to Siesta Key and specifically Crystal Sands. We dreamed of the day when we were ready to make a committment to this area. As residents of Los Angeles but originally from the Chicago suburbs, we enjoy our escape to the peace and beauty of Siesta Key. Our daughters are grown now but they never miss an opportunity to visit with us when we go to Siesta Key. My wife and I have been married for 28 years and have been partners in portfolio management in the financial service industy for almost as long. Vacationing in Siesta Key, revives our spirits and energy. We hope you will find our home in Siesta Key a comfortable and enjoyable memory for you and your family or friends and please consider us again on your next trip back. I am almost certain you will be back. Enjoy your stay and thankyou.

David pokorny purchased this condo in 2009

Why David pokorny chose Siesta Key

We chose Crystal Sands after having stayed in many other complexes when vacationing in Siesta Key. There were many advantages to this location. First beach proximity to the complex. This is only one of a few complexes that is directly on the beach. We also loved the floor plan that provided views from all the main rooms as well as a large Lanai. The complex is always maticulously maintained and a more family oriented complex. The private beach areas provide for plenty of space to sprawl out and enjoy the beach. The gradual sloap into the Gulf allows kids of all ages to enjoy the water. The beach town feel of quaint ambience is perfect. Enough to do but not out of control.

What makes this condo unique

The feeling of escape from hustle and bustle. To sit on the lanai and enjoy a fine red wine and casual conversations while looking out at the beauty of the environment around us. The beach, the ocean, the sky. Even the evening thunderstorms as lightning strikes over the Gulf of Mexico is magical. But vegging out while lying on the cool sands and swimming in the warm waters of the Gulf are priceless.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi Dave & Magda

Sorry I haven't emailed before - it's been manic since we got back!

We absolutely loved our holiday in unit 408 - it was everything we hoped for and more, especially the views. We arrived Monday night & after a long flight headed straight to bed. Unfortunately the next morning the weather was cold & rainy, but no problem as we headed off to millennium mall in Orlando for serious shopping at Abercrombie etc, so the girls weren't too disappointed ;-). On Wednesday my husband took the younger two to discovery cove to swim with dolphins, which was a huge hit. Sadly the weather on siesta key turned very windy & cold - Alice & I being Brits desperate for a suntan tried to sunbathe but the wind was very strong & started blowing sunbeds over so we retreated inside.

The rest of the holiday the weather was fabulous & was spent on the beach swimming, building sandcastles, watching dolphins, getting a suntan p- heaven.

We ate most nights at SKOB- my husband really enjoyed the oysters & we girls feasted on scallops & shrimp & everyone enjoyed the live music. The baja grill was good, but sadly we never made it to Ophelias. I have a schoolfriend who lives on longboat key so we ate there a few times - much more expensive but but not so good we felt.

Your condo is gorgeous and more than lived up to expectations in every way - very happy to leave feedback on the vrbo website. We would very much love to rent it again next year, either in July/august or in october. The girls said it was the best holiday ever, but please could we go for two weeks next time! I'm sure share prices in victoria's secret must have shot up whilst we were there too, next time the miller girls are coming, buy, buy, buy!

My only regret was that we ran out of time to rent a boat, but next time it is a definite!

Thank you again for all your help & advice & we all enjoyed every minute of our holiday in unit 408.

Best wishes

Spring vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable stay in David's condo! It was very well stocked from kitchen plates, silverware and appliances to beach chairs and towels!

The washer and dryer worked well. The view from the lanai was beautiful looking over the beach and the pool.

We had great communication with David, the owner!

My husband and I stayed in this unit for two weeks and we wish it had been longer. Beautifully furnished, comfortable accommodations and the location simply could not be better. The view from the lanai is breathtaking. We have time share and have travelled extensively - this was by far the most beautiful view. Siesta Key deserved the #1 beach in the USA title. David was very responsive (and quite patient) as we seemed to be a little challenged by the security code the first couple of tries. Great restaurants in the area, a few just a short walk away. I poured through reviews prior to booking and every one of them was on the money. I only wish I could give this property and the owner six stars.

Wonderful Place To Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a terrific month in this lovely apartment. It is furnished very comfortably, exactly as represented in the pictures and quite clean. The view is mesmerizing..the walk to the beach is very short and the beach itself is probably the prettiest one we've ever been to. Lots of restaurants, both upscale and casual. And Sarasota, with its theaters, Ringling Museum, etc. A very short dive.

The owner is quite responsive and anxious to have his guests happy.

We HIGHLY recommend this property!

awesome codo with an awesome view

  • 4 of 5

this was a very nice condo, beautiful furnishings, awesome views from a large screened balcony.This was the most well equipped condo we have ever rented. they thought of almost everything. wish the complex had a hot tub especially since the weather wasnt at its best that week, but they do have 2 heated pools. we used the grill several times too.

good location, close to many things to do in sarasota and about a 5 to 10 minute drive to the villages. a little much to walk to but there are shops,resturants and a grocery within a 2 block walk. there is a free ride service that works for tips to take you to the villages if you dont want to drive. highly recommend the mini donut them hot! would definatly recommend staying at this condo, unfortunatly they have just changed to a 2 week min. so that leaves us out along with many other working vacation goers...

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback. The two week minimum is in effect since October 2013. Many of us as owners are working towards getting the policy changed back to weekly. So there is hope for weekly rentals at some time in the future. As to my unit we constantly review feedback and invest in the comfort and beauty of our unit. My wife and I stay several times a year to enjoy which is one of the most beautiful locations on the planet. So we like to make sure comfort and beauty is kept up right down to a sleep number bed in the master. Again thing you Cindy for taking the time to share your experience Dave & Magda

Perfect Beachfront Condo

  • 5 of 5

Wow...we just returned from an incredible stay at this spacious beachfront condo. Wonderful layout and plenty of amenities..Owner was most helpful with questions via email, and condo was exactly as described in the VRBO listing. Great location on Crescent Beach with easy access to Siesta Key Village. It was so nice having beach equipment, laundry facilities and a fully stocked kitchen provided. If I ever wanted to buy a condo it would be one exactly like this! My only minor complaint would be the need to use a security key fob to get anywhere on the property. While I like the idea for security reasons, sometimes it was an inconvenience if some of our family wanted to be at the beach at differing times. Overall though, perfect vacation...would love to return in the near future. Thanks for letting us pretend to live in paradise for a week!
