"My wife and I flew our two little ones (4 and 2 1/2) from New Jersey to Florida with hopes that the villa would be as good as it looked in the pictures, and we were pleasantly surprised that the pictures do not do the place justice. It was clean, spaceous, and gave us everything we needed to have the perfect week in paradise. You walk down the little private road and are almost instantly walking on the perfect private splendor of Crescent Beach. Beautiful white sand, ample beach chairs, and clear ocean water that almost felt like we were in a warm bath made this the perfect beach experience. The villa even had a beach umbrella and beach toys for the kids, so we didn't need to worry about packing them or buying our own for the week. We grilled outside and ate at the little patio, and the people were very nice at the gated complex. We never had to worry about losing keys, since we only ever had to remember the codes to get into the gate and our villa, which was a nice convenience. We also had about 8 turtle nests marked off on the beach right near us, so while we didn't see any of the baby turtles escaping to the ocean, the possibility was there. We also arrived on the 4th of July, so we got to see the professional fireworks of Siesta Beach to our right, while other municipalities and amateur beach enthusiasts competed with their own to set the sky aflame. It was a perfect start to a perfect week. And, when the kids didn't want to take the walk to the beach, our villa was about as close as you could be to the pool, which was well maintained and warm. Lastly, the owner was entirely professional, responsive, and helped make our stay as effortless as it could've been. We will definitely consider coming back in the coming years. You can't beat it for the cost."
