          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 1980

          About the owner: Our family is from Tulsa, OK. This villa was purchased for family use when the kids were younger. We still use it mainly for family use, but have decided to share this wonderful property with others.

          Why the Owner Chose Crescent Arms:
          Siesta Key is home to one of the most beautiful white sand beaches in the world. Siesta’s sand originated thousands of years ago from the Appalachian area. Whiter than the sand at any other beach in the area, Siesta’s sand is also known for its relative coolness even on the hottest of days. Those qualities are derived from the content of sand, which is indeed unique from any other beach in the world Siesta sand is 99.9 percent quartz. This makes the sand appear very white. And because of the way the crystals have been worn down, the sand is exceptionally soft. This sand along with the laid back 'key' lifestyle is what made our parents chose this property over 30 years ago.

          The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
          Steps to the beach. Small, quiet complex, close to restaurants and shops. This is the only villa in the complex with a screen porch. Others have decided to increase the interior square footage, we decided to keep the original screen porch for morning coffee and evening happy hours.
