Year Purchased: 2009

About: We fell in love with Siesta Key almost 18 years ago. As a family we have visited many locations around the world but always came back to Siesta Key and specifically Crystal Sands. We dreamed of the day when we were ready to make a committment to this area. As residents of Los Angeles but originally from the Chicago suburbs, we enjoy our escape to the peace and beauty of Siesta Key. Our daughters are grown now but they never miss an opportunity to visit with us when we go to Siesta Key. My wife and I have been married for 28 years and have been partners in portfolio management in the financial service industy for almost as long. Vacationing in Siesta Key, revives our spirits and energy. We hope you will find our home in Siesta Key a comfortable and enjoyable memory for you and your family or friends and please consider us again on your next trip back. I am almost certain you will be back. Enjoy your stay and thankyou.

Why Crystal Sands:
We chose Crystal Sands after having stayed in many other complexes when vacationing in Siesta Key. There were many advantages to this location. First beach proximity to the complex. This is only one of a few complexes that is directly on the beach. We also loved the floor plan that provided views from all the main rooms as well as a large Lanai. The complex is always maticulously maintained and a more family oriented complex. The private beach areas provide for plenty of space to sprawl out and enjoy the beach. The gradual sloap into the Gulf allows kids of all ages to enjoy the water. The beach town feel of quaint ambience is perfect. Enough to do but not out of control.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The feeling of escape from hustle and bustle. To sit on the lanai and enjoy a fine red wine and casual conversations while looking out at the beauty of the environment around us. The beach, the ocean, the sky. Even the evening thunderstorms as lightning strikes over the Gulf of Mexico is magical. But vegging out while lying on the cool sands and swimming in the warm waters of the Gulf are priceless.
