A Wow Vacation!
A Wow Vacation!
This condo exceeded our expectations! The listing and photos were accurately described. The condo was very clean, well-maintained and offered many amenities. For those who like to dine-in, the kitchen is very modern and had everything we needed to prepare our own meals. The owners, Debbie and Don, were friendly and timely in responding to our questions. The reservation process was easy and done via email. They called us the second day of our stay and wanted to make sure we had everything we needed. They gave us restaurant suggestions and asked if we had any questions. This was our first visit to Siesta Key and our first time using the VRBO site. We could not have been more pleased with our choice. Many other reviews on this property have mentioned the view, and we must say it was spectacular! We spent many hours on the lanai just enjoying the wonderful weather and view of the sunsets over the Gulf. The people we met at the Crystal Sands were friendly. There are many attractions close by; including the Mote Aquarium, which we thoroughly enjoyed. There is something to do for everyone or you can just enjoy the beautiful beach and clear, warm water. We would absolutely recommend this condo to anyone who is considering visiting Siesta Key and wants to experience a piece of paradise. There are just no words to really describe the awesome beauty of this part of the world, you have to see it for yourself! We would definitely stay here again when we return to Siesta Key!

Owner response: What a positive response, and we really appreciate it. We always tell folks that our pictures can't capture what your eyes see, in terms of our view! We feel incredibly lucky to own this slice of paradise and get really excited to share it with great guests like Crystale.
My husband and I have stayed at Debbie and Don's condo every October for the past several years. We keep coming back because it feels like home. When you open the door to the breathtaking views of the Gulf - you feel like your in paradise. Debbie and Don have thought of everything to make your stay a true vacation. Our first time on Siesta Key, we stayed at this condo, and have gotten to know the Siesta Key/Sarasota area very well. We have never thought about staying anywhere else, because this is a perfect condo, in a perfect location. Thank you Debbie and Don for sharing your piece of paradise with us.

Owner response: Thank you for your kind words. We appreciate your feedback as we have deliberately tried to make our condo an awesome destination as we want our guests to feel like they have picked a 5 star location, from the view to the interior decorating to the fabulous beach location. Most importantly we love to hear our guests say they want to come back year after year, as we know how much we love Siesta Key and want our guests to look forward each year to their vacation in paradise!
The listing description for this property is spot on. We absolutely loved this condo, the beach, and the surrounding area and restaurants. It was nice to be able to walk to restaurants, shops, and the grocery store. The condo was impeccable. The view of the gulf and beach was absolutely stunning. We'll definitely be back. Our only regret is that we didn't stumble upon this condo years ago.

Our family of four has vacationed in this beautiful condo for the last two years and plan a return for a third year this summer. All of the other reviews are accurate. It is absolutely beautiful, updated, clean, and has all of the comforts of home. The view of Siesta Beach is outstanding and we believe this penthouse condo has the best view of any of the other places we've stayed in Siesta Key. Debbie and Don are great to rent from and make every detail easy- from receiving the unit keys to mailing them back. They even called to check on us to make sure we had no questions. The unit is directly ocean front, the view from the lanaia is spectacular- in fact the view from every room is wonderful. There is covered parking with a dedicated space for the unit- something many of the other condos do not have in Siesta Key.Our family loves to visit Siesta Village during our stay for dinner most nights and souvenir shopping. The beach is by far the most beautiful we've visited. We have recommended this property to several friends and family members. We hope to vacation here for many years to come. It feels like our home away from home . It is evident that this condo is well loved by the owners and visitors alike and is very well cared for.

Owner response: Thank you for the glowing words of endorsement on our beachfront condo. We know how much influence your experience may have on future guests, who are unsure about renting directly from an owner, so we really appreciate that you took the time to write in a positive review. We especially like that you return year after year, as you are our favorite kinds of guests, plus, the fact you come back each year validates the credibility of your testimonial. Thanks again.
Condo was truly a beautiful home away from home! This top-floor unit had breath-taking panoramic views of the ocean and was aboslutely beautiful! The unit contained high-end applicances, great amenities, quality towels, bedding & other linens, and it was beautifully furnished & decorated. It had everything you could ever need including very nice cookware, dishes, extra linens, toys, beach chairs, etc. The building itself was in the perfect location, centrally located and close to everything. Parking was easy. Pools were great and the beach & views were stunning! Unit was also very well-maintained and very clean!!! Everything was simply outstanding & first-rate! We will definitely be back real soon!

We first stayed in this lovely condo in 2011 and returned again for eight weeks in winter 2012. The condo has a fabulous view of Crescent Beach (we think it is the best view on Siesta Key!). The unit is tastefully furnished, bright and airy. The beds are comfortable. The lanai is a delightful place to enjoy the gulf without being on the beach. It is shaded and screened and perfect for us--two people who are sensitive to direct sunlight. The building is secure and welll maintained.

Owner response: Thank you for the great testimonial. We know that repeat guests speaks to the quality of our beach-front condo, as well as, the integrity of the promises we make about renting directly from us, the owners. We think our place is a perfect destination for couples, families or anyone who wants to be rejuvenated with the sound of the ocean surf, or the warm tropical air from a top-of-the-line home away from home.
Paradise At Siesta Key

We just got back from Siesta Key and loved it. Debbie and Don were the best to rent from and they have a gorgeous condo. Everything in the condo has been redone and all appliances are high end also very comfortable bedding. You can tell they take much pride in their place. They also had a closet with some added extras of things that we normally have to go buy while we are there like body boards, umbrellas etc. That was also nice. Everything in this listing definitely fits the condo and more it was great. They also called to make sure all was okay and gave us lots of tips on places to go and to eat and info on the area. I cannot belive we have only been back a couple of weeks so the only problem is "Vacation Was To Short". Thanks again Debbie and Don.

Owner response: Myra and Jack, guests like you are a pleasure to have stay in our home away from home. Thanks for all the great feedback, and hope you can return soon! Debbie and Don
Great, great location! Quiet condo with spectacular view on white sand crescent beach and on the vast ocean. All inclusive with newly remodeled kitchen and all the amenities needed for our stay. The rooms are spacious, clean and well divided and therefore are conducive to privacy for everyone ( the four of us). Parking is provided and access to the beach couldn't be more convenient and yet very safe. Many restaurants close by as well as grocery store, post office, little shops etc.... and Siesta Key Village at walking distance. Most of all, a wonderful time watching the sunsets from the lanai! We would most certainly recommend this condo and we want to thank Debbie and Don for letting us share their "home away from home".

We recently spent a week in this condo, and it was a wonderful vacation! The owners have thought of everything you could possibly need to make your stay a pleasant one. This location has a beautiful gulfront view from the lanai, and the panoramic view is incredible, all the way to Sarasota! The owners were a pleasure to deal with, and very responsive to any inquries before and during our stay. I highly recommend this condo for your vacation in Siesta.

Owner response: Thank you Lynda and Frank for your wonderful testimonial. We enjoyed having you as guests in our condo and hope you'll be able to return next year. While the majority of our extensive renovations were complete for your stay (that's why you had that awesome view), we'll have the kitchen completed next month and can't wait to show it off to you.

We had a wonderful time in this condo. It has a special location with full view of the crescent beach from the top floor of Crystal Sands condominium. The condo was nicely decorated and there was enough room for all of us. All rooms have great view of the gulf and the lanai was the most desired place for all of us. It was very pleasant to deal with the owners who were true to their promises. We look forward to coming back here.
