  • Our Favorite Home Away From Home

    "We live in Central Florida but also enjoy a beach get-a-way a couple of times a year. We have stayed at several gulf coast beaches over the years and have found there is nothing better than the combination of Joan & Paul's condos + Siesta Key + Crescent Beach. We have stayed several times in 3 of their units in Crescent Arms and found all of them to be well maintained and furnished. And they add the personal contact to make us feel at home here."

  • Our honeymoon!!!

    "First, what a great location! Close to everything. Condo was amazingly beautiful, the beach theme rocked! Comfortable beds, nice furniture and TV's. All brand new inside! And best part.....a top of the line washer and dryer in the unit, instead of walking up to the laundry mat. This place was well decorated and thought out! Next, take a walk across a small two lane road and there is a private beach for the condo owners and their guests only. Ever walked in powdered sugar? That's what the sand feels like...and not hot on the feet! There is a beach guy named Ian who greets you with a smile and brings out chairs and umbrellas for you!! He also has kayak's and other beach toys! Restaurants have great food and the people in this town are very nice. This made our honeymoon truly unforgettable. The sunsets on the beach are fabulous.....like a picture. We will definitely be back next year! If I could give this 10 stars.....I would!"

  • Relaxing Beach Getaway!

    "We had a very enjoyable stay at Casa Siesta! Mitch was very pleasant to work with and the property was just as described. We found the condo spotless and very cozy. The complex was quiet and the mattress so comfortable that we found ourselves sleeping in much later than normal for us....even on vacation! We will be back & hopefully very soon!"

  • Beautiful unit, great location but issues with noise and parking

    "The owners have done a great job with this unit. It is clean, comfortable and very well appointed. Everything is just as described. Very comfortable for 4 adults. Close to the beach and in the heart of the village. We were a bit concerned with potential noise from the nearby restaurants and bars, but that was not an issue at all. The noise issues we encountered were two-fold. An adjacent unit was occupied by an elderly person who is apparently hard of hearing and lonely. The TV blared most of the night in that unit and unfortunately, the sound travels into one of the bedrooms which makes for a tough night. I'm sure the neighbor has no idea that the TV is too loud. Hopefully, that person was also a tenant and not a renter, as no one else has mentioned it in any of the reviews. The nearby Siesta Key Fitness Center blares techo music most mornings when it opens at 7 AM, which is especially loud on warm mornings when they prop their front doors open. Additionally, we often had no place to park as the fitness patrons would be in the spaces belonging to the Villa. I'm sure we could have called and the property manager would have had them towed, but the fact that the parking wasn't available when we needed it, especially when returning with groceries was particularly annoying. And since the parking pass we were supplied was out of date, we were concerned that our car would also be towed if it were parked when someone was checking for illegally parked vehicles. If the issues with the Fitness Center get permanently fixed, and perhaps a bit more sound insulation added between units, this place would be a 5."
