Take a vacation to the beach!

Fall asleep to the sound of the gulf as you stay in one of my two units located directly on Crescent Beach.

Both units-- Full gulf-front views and access to the screened in patio from either bedroom or living room.

Unit 201-second floor unit

Unit 601-sixth floor unit.

Recently Remodeled Units possess a beautiful full-view of the Gulf of Mexico, a large balcony that is just outside the living/dining area and also each of the bedrooms. You are on top and over the Beach and the view is unobstructed and spectacular. Sit on the balcony and enjoy the spectacular view and the sunset. Come and relax and enjoy the beautiful, fine, white quartz sand that Siesta Key is known for.

My condo is turnkey ready. Situated on Crescent Beach, rated the #1 Beach this year.

Only one hour from Busch Gardens in Tampa.

Crescent Arms Condominium complex has beach loungers for guests exclusive use, barbecue grills, and a beautiful heated pool. Both units offer a great view of sunsets and the ocean. You can fall asleep listening to the relaxing sound of waves. Come see why so many people never want to return home. Contact me about availability.

Amazing Stay- can't wait to return!

  • 5 of 5

Kathy said the pictures don't do the view justice and she was right! My jaw hit the floor when we walked in. My husband and I had some time to ourselves and my brother, his wife, and my niece also stayed together for part of the trip.

The days that it was my husband and I it was our quiet romantic getaway, but when my brothers family was with us it was really conducive to the whole family. We really enjoyed Kathy's recommendation of the drum circle on the Public beach on Sunday evening. Great fun!

The beach is phenomenal, white powdered sugar, and it never gets hot on your feet. The condo was clean and had everything we could possibly need. And did I mention this view, not a bad seat in the house. I could be cooking dinner and be watching the waves. The facility also has a communal grill that guests could use it was convenient and kept clean as well.

Getting in and leaving was smooth and easy. We are looking forward to our next visit. Cathy's Crescent Condo was really a home away from home.

Excellent experience

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough good things about our experience with this condo and the owner, Kathy. The beach, location, sunset view, amenities, cleanliness, ease of access, were ALL excellent. But, most of all, Kathy made the whole process work smoothly. Read the other visitor's comments - they are not exaggerating. Another major plus is the proximity to Stickney Point grocery, liquor and a couple of local eating establishments. Do NOT miss Anna's Deli. We will absolutely be back. Thank you, Kathy!

What a View!!

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a week at Siesta Key and have to say the view was amazing!! I loved being able to set on the screened balcony or on the sofa with the sliding doors open and hear the sound of the ocean. The condo was very comfortable and worked out great. The information provided by Kathy with the necessary key codes for the door and gate worked perfectly. I will come back for another walk on the beautiful Siesta Key beach as soon as possible. Thanks for a relaxing and wonderful week!!

Best on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Kathy's condo (for the second time - so you know we loved it!) for 3 weeks in Nov/Dec 2012. The view from the balconey cannot be beat. Great spot for watching the glorious sunsets. The condo has everything one needs, the split BR design makes it perfect for two couples. On arrival we found all the little neccessities - dish detergent, handsoap, toilet paper,paper towels and garbage bags. Great not to have to run out and shop for these items ! Shopping is close, either at the the Crescent Beach Grocery or at the Publix across the bridge. There are restaurants, (try Cap't Curt's Tike Bar) a 7/ll and a Davidson's Drugstore just a few hundred yards down the road. You really don't need to leave the island. But do - Sarasota has lots to offer. The Gulf Gate area adjacent to the Publix is a great area to explore for little eateries, bakeries and more. We hope to be able to come again !

Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not give this condo justice. The view is spectacular. The condo is clean and the owner gave us a lot of helpful information about the area. She was more than helpful. Thank you for providing a clean condo with all the amenities we needed!

Owner's Response: We always receive positive feedback but it is very nice when the time is taken to write a review. Thank you. Our condominiums are on top and over the beach so there is really no view or location that can match ours. We do appreciate our guests and make every effort to make their vacation more enjoyable. We have had families, honeymooners and people celebrating an anniversary or birthday that sometimes have specific requests and we make every effort to accommodate them. Thanks again and come visit us again to the Top rated- # 1 Beach
