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.

Enjoyed our stay at beautiful Siesta Key!

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this villa at Crystal Sands. The gorgeous beach and wonderful weather were big pluses. The owners, Joe and Diane, were excellent to work with. The villa was very clean and had many conveniences, but could use some updating in terms of furniture (new twin mattress in front bedroom, chairs on sun porch, and a firmer couch). A few extra dishes would be nice if there are more than two guests. The kitchen had most anything you might need in terms of cookware and utensils and even spices. The washer and dryer in the garage was a real blessing since we were there for 4 weeks. And the location so close to the front pool was definitely a plus. However, the negative about the location was the noise from traffic on Midnight Pass Road. Probably most disappointing was the condition and noise level on the Crystal Sands property. We had assumed that the damage caused by the tornado in January, 2016 would have been handled. Instead there was a crowded parking lot and noise because of the construction crews. Near the pools and the villa there was often pounding and the noise of power tools. Trying to enjoy the beach was disrupted by the saws and hammering repairing the Tower units. Carport roofs with big holes, villa roofs without shingles and property lights without globes and bulbs definitely detracted from the surroundings. All of this was beyond the owners' control and hopefully will be resolved not too far in the future.

Crystal Sands Thanksgiving Vacation

  • 4 of 5

The condo was very nice. Clean and functional. The pool was near by, and it was a short walk to the beach. Having a washer dryer at the condo was a great convenience. The weather was perfect.

It felt good going to the beach on Thanksgiving day with the family.

There is plenty to do on Siesta Key. Capt Kurt's was our favorite restaurant. The seafood was good and we went to the karaoke bar after dinner. That was a blast.

We would definitely go back to Siesta Key again.

Extremely well-maintained and managed property.

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky to have selected this property for our late summer vacation. The weather was horrible during our stay and if it wasn't for this beautiful, well-updated villa, I don't know if we stayed throughout our booked time.

This property is packed with entertainment-Verizon FioS with complete channel lineup and fast internet, garage filled with beach toys and necessities, access to two swimming pools, all kinds of kitchen appliances, updated and comfortable furniture. All in all, by far the best thing that happened to us during our vacation was the villa #4.

Well maintained and very well equipped!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our week at Villa 4, our stay at Crystal Sands and in general Siesta Keys; we would highly recommend staying at the Varacalli's Villa anytime. We hope to return to Siesta Keys and will definitely rent from the Varacalli's again. Having rented houses on Hilton Head, Destin, and Jekyll Island over the last 39 years we have not stayed at a place as well equipped as Diane and Joe's place. Had a great time!!

what a lovely home!

  • 5 of 5

What a clean, well-equipped, villa! We loved our stay here. It was great having the family altogether comfortably in the Villa with it's new couches and state of the art kitchen. We had several meals indoors and everything we needed to cook our food with was there. The owners were extremely accessible if need be. The property is located closely to one of the two pools on the property and most of the time, we had the whole pool to ourselves. The views on Siesta Key are million dollar views. It was just a short walk to our beach and chairs were provided. We couldn't have had a nicer stay elsewhere!

Home was clean and pretty much just as pictured

  • 3 of 5

The condo was nice, equipped as described and comfortable. I found the entire complex to be a bit run down. Many windows broke and boarded up from a storm 6 months ago. Not sure why they aren't repaired yet, but did make for a bad visual appearance. For us, the non stop noise of traffic, being on the main road, was horrible. As well as daily maintenance of grass, trimming etc. I have always rented houses not condos, so this was quite frustrating. Laying at the pool, you could not carry a conversation, trying to sleep past 730 am was near impossible. The beach is beautiful and a close walk, pool is also very convenient. We would come back to Siesta Keys just not a condo on the main road.
