Florida South Central Gulf Coast Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Look no further, you have found your Luxurious Penthouse Condo Rental! Located directly on the sparkling white sandy beach of Crescent Beach.

The condo is beautifully appointed and absolutely immaculately clean! Another amenity you won't find in many condo's on Siesta Key is carpet! Would you have tile on every floor in your house? Then don't settle for cold tiled floors for your vacation retreat!

The condo also comes with a pull out twin bed, and fits perfectly between the current twin beds. Or pull the two twin beds together, and with a specially made harness that keeps the beds together while covering up the gap, you have a comfortable queen bed!

Have Kids? The flat screen TV's in each bedroom, as well as in the living room will keep them busy when you are looking for some down time. The XBox gaming system is a complete hit with the kids, and lets mom and dad unwind quietly! (Can you tell I have three boys) :)

Wireless Internet Access: Wireless Internet Access if Free.

XBox Gaming System: Condo comes with an XBox gaming system and 15 games. There are a variety of games for all ages.

About The Owner

Hi we are Gary and Sandra Knaak, and we can't begin to tell you how much our family loves going to Siesta Key! We have three boys, and each year they look forward to our April family vacation on the white sandy beaches of Crescent Beach. To us, Crescent Arms is home, and we look forward to sharing our home with others to experience the awesome beaches of Siesta Key!

The Owner purchased this condo in 1995

Why The Owner chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

All you need to do is vacation in Siesta Key with the beautiful white sandy beaches once, and you are hooked for life.

What makes this condo unique

Our unit is close to Stickney Point Bridge, so getting into Sarasota is easy and quick. We are also located within walking distance of a grocery store and several places to eat.

Just what we needed!!!

  • 5 of 5

WE stayed at Gary's condo last week and it was truly amazing. My husband and two sons (10 & 12) and it was just what we needed. Kid had a blast and met new friends and we did the same. Loved that it was true beach time. No frills and overwhelming activities all around. Just soak up the sun and relax. Condo was clean and had almost everything we needed. Will be going back again!!!! thank you Gary!

This is the second year in a row we've stayed in Gary's unit, and it was just as immaculate as the first. Great location, beautiful beach, weather was perfect! Loved every single day we spent in SK!

Perfect! Perfect!! Perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about our week in Siesta key! The condo was everything we expected if not more! It was very comfortable, cozy, and convenient. The beach was absolutely gorgeous. We would go back in a heartbeat. The only negative to the trip was Siesta key Boat Rentals. We rented a boat for the day and it was not what was advertised. Very disappointed in them. We loved Capt. Curt's and their clam chowder.

Fantastic place!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is perfect for family getaways! This was our first time at Siesta Key Beach and it is amazing! The condo complex has full size beach lawn chairs to use. Gary has beach chairs in his condo along with beach toys. You really don't need to bring anything for the beach expect your towel and sunscreen! The kitchen functioned well. We cook almost every meal there. There is a gas grill in the ground floor on the side of the building. If you are looking for a place to stay this is the one you want!

Owner's Response: I always appreciate guest comments regarding their stay, and the feedback is always helpful. To be candid, after this guest stayed at my unit, they were kind enough to let me know some of my kitchen utensils could be upgraded, as they enjoyed cooking in the condo every night. So the next day I had all brand new kitchen utensils purchased for my unit. I truly appreciated that this guest let me know how important it was to have items in the kitchen that would make their stay extraordinary. That's the kind of relationship I enjoy the most with my guests, one that allows for open communication so that my guests vacation can be everything they envisioned! Thank you for your kind review, and moreover thank you for letting me know what I could do to make your next stay even more enjoyable! Regards Gary

Fabulous time in Siesta Key

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful week at Gary's condo in Siesta Key. This was our first visit to the area, so we weren't sure what to expect. The unit itself is tastefully decorated, comfortable and very clean. The kitchen is well-stocked so preparing meals is a breeze. The lanai is an added bonus as you can sit outside in the screened-in area, and enjoy the view of the beach while sipping a cup of coffee. The beach is pristine. Everything we read about the powdery-white sand was true - it really exceeded our expectations. The lounge chairs provided by the resort were an added bonus - there were plenty for everyone! Since we had a late flight on our last day on the Key, we loaded our bags into the car, and spent the day on beach. We were able to change in the facilities by the pool, so we enjoyed every last possible minute of beach time. Our first trip to Siesta Key will certainly not be our last - and a call to Gary to reserve his unit, once again, will be the first thing we do when we choose our next vacation dates. Thanks for providing us with a terrific home away from home!

Owner's Response: Thank you Jane for such a glowing review! The one thing I wish I could do is meet all the wonderful people who spend time in my condo for their vacation. If you have read any of my other responses to past reviews, you will know how important it is to me to live up to my promise to provide a condo that is immaculately clean, all the amenities of home, and always up to date. It is my promise to you as you scour the internet to decide where to spend your vacation. As I tell all my guests, if your stay is not extraordinary, please let me know, and I will do everything in my powers to make sure your stay meets your expectations. Now If I could only figure out how to control the weather! Thanks again for such a wonderful review, and I appreciate you considering my condo again in the future. Regards Gary
