About Joe Varacalli

Diane and Joe own this wonderful property. We grew up in Youngstown, Ohio and graduated from Youngstown State University in the mid 80s. We've been married for over 30 years. We have 3 grown children and 3 grandchildren. We love hanging out with family and friends. We spend our family vacations on Siesta Key and want to share our place with others to enjoy.

Joe Varacalli purchased this villa in 2012

Why Joe Varacalli chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

This property is located in the best condominium complex (Crystal Sands) on the #1 all around beach (Siesta Key) in the USA. Siesta Key is one of the few beaches in the world with 99% Pure Quartz white sand that stays amazingly cool even in the hot sunlight. The calm gradual incline of this beach makes it very safe for children and fun for adults. The waters are warm and calming. I never get tired of this beach and the surrounding area.

What makes this villa unique

Our Villa has an attached garage, includes everything you'll need on the beach like chairs, umbrellas, beach toys, coolers, etc. Two pools are located on the complex property (one of which has a great beach view). If you like cooking our kitchen is well equipped with everything you need. If you don't like cooking it is within a short distance to restaurants, and nightlife. These combined features are rare on Siesta Key.

Great location with easy access to the beach and conveniently located to the pool. Very well kept villa that I would recommend to family or friends. No question our family will be going back again and staying at this same location.

La mejor casa y la mejor ubicación

  • 5 of 5

La casa está equipada por demás . Está decorada con muy buen gusto y es muy cómoda. El complejo está sobre la playa y el mar es increíble.

Habitualmente tomamos nuestras vacaciones alquilando casas y esta fue la mejor

Muchas gracias Joe

Well-equipped and so comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this comfortable villa! They even had extras like a beach wagon, noodles and toys. The beds were extremely comfortable and we had everything we needed for meal prep. Everything was very clean. We had a small leak in one if them he. Athrooms and the owners had a plumber out to fix it in less than 2 hours! Very responsive to our needs. It was great to have a washer and dryer. A few villas apparently don't have that. I would highly recommend this well designed and convenient villa!

Wedding on Crystal Sands beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Crystal Sands over the Memorial Day week. Our daughter got married to a wonderful guy on Memorial Day on the beach behind the high rise just before sunset. It was a perfect setting for a wedding.

Our villa was everything we could have asked for and more. Our daily walk to the pool took less than a minute, and the walk to the beach was only 4 or 5 minutes. The villa was spacious and comfortable and slept five very easily with additional room for at least one or two more people.

We would definitely go to Crystal Sands again and we would have no qualms about renting the same villa. We had a great time.
