About the property

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner name is Gary Knaak, and I am the owner of 705N at Crescent Arms. I have to admit, I haven't been diligent in telling people who rent from me to go to my guest book, so that's why I am writing this. If you need a referral or would like to hear from past guest about what they think about my place, please email me with your request...I would be glad to accommodate you. In the mean time, I am going to try and remember to tell people who rent from me to check out my guest book! :) Many Thanks for thinking about making my condo your next holiday vacation spot!Gary Knaak

Great location

  • 5 of 5

This condo is well maintained, clean and easily accessible. The grounds are also in good condition, lots of maintenance people around. The proximity to this beautiful beach and the ocean breeze make this worth a repeat visit. Thank you Gary for the detailed instructions and contact information.

Wonderful Spring Break 2017

  • 5 of 5

The condo was clean and nicely updated. Loved the big porch with a beach view. The beach was beautiful and crescent arms was convenient for everyone.

Owner's Response: I truly appreciate when guests write a review of my condo. I have also purchased new furniture for both bedrooms, and the condo is being completely painted. I treat my condo like I am going to live there and not like a rental unit, therefore keeping it updated is paramount!

Missled by photo of apartment block! This apartment does NOT overlook the water but is a side apartment with a view facing the apartment block on the property next door.

Owner's Response: First and foremost I am sorry that this tenant felt misled of the location of my unit. I went back to all the communications with this renter and they never asked where my unit was located. If you could ask anyone who has rented from me for the past 20 years they will tell you the first thing I am is honest about the location of my unit, and to prove that point there is a picture on my VRBO web site that clearly shows the view I have of the ocean which also shows the location of my unit. Further more anyone that knows Siesta Key would realize that ocean front or ocean view units cost far more per week than what I charge. Unfortunately I believe this tenant was upset because I had to call them and ask them to keep the noise down after 10pm because the association management were receiving multiple complaints of loud behavior after the quiet hour. The tenant may not have liked the location of my unit or the view it provides, but in no way shape or form can this tenant say I misled them or that the pictures on my web site are misleading. To say so is questioning my character, and all you have to do is read the years of reviews I have to realize this tenant just didn't do their due diligence and homework prior to booking.

We can't say enough about Gary & his condo. We misplaced our check-in information & the office was closed. We found Gary's phone number & he called us back within 5 minutes. So panic was over! The condo is just as shown in pictures, with a perfect location on Siesta Key. We can't wait to go back. Thanks for everything.

Great Comfy Condo with Great Location

  • 4 of 5

The condo was very nice with everything we needed. It was nice to sit on the balcony for breakfast and watch the ocean. The beds/pillows were comfortable. We enjoyed our time there. Great location; close to restaurants and shopping.
