                  Car: Recommended

                  2011 was the 21st year of the Best Beaches list, put together by Dr. Stephen Leatherman (also knows as 'Dr. Beach'), director of Florida International University's Laboratory for Coastal Research in Miami.

                  In addition to its sparkling sand and beautiful water, Siesta Beach, Leatherman said, boasts of the perfect waves, not for surfers, but for kids and families to play in. Rather than feet, the waves are measured in inches and the beach gradually slopes into the Gulf waters, making it a very safe area for children.

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About: Sarasota natives now living in the Northeast, we know the area and have always admired this beautiful building directly on the 2+ miles of world famous white sand beaches of Siesta Key in Sarasota.

                  Why Crystal Sands:
                  Equipped for use by my family as often as we can make it back to paradise - we offer our Penthouse to the discriminating vacationer who wants both a beautiful natural setting and the modern technology and comforts needed to easily stay in touch with the 'real world' back home!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  Located directly on the #1 rated beach in the USA, this unit is all new (renovations completed during the summer of 2012), on the quiet and secluded top floor with a separate entrance across from Siesta Key's only glass elevator to the beach. Crystal Sands has two heated pools, one directly on the beach. For your convenience, the unit also has on-site management for check-in and to offer any assistance you may need during your stay.
