The kitchen has a domed ceiling, white cabinets, and granite counters. The entire villa was recently tiled thruout, and both bathrooms completely renovated. There is a large area rug in the living room. The villa is tastefully furnished, and bright.

Enjoy the privacy of our end unit on a side lane. There is a pool only a few steps away down the street, and another pool overlooking the beach. Shopping and dining are just a short walk or drive away.

This is a great place in a beautiful location! Please give us a call!

About Ritchard Lewis

Debbie and I live in a suburb of Cleveland, Ohio. Both of our families are from Cleveland, and most of our families are still here. We have a pretty quiet life, and enjoy spending time with our two boys. Winter is too long in Cleveland, and we always look forward to our next chance to be on Siesta Key!

Ritchard Lewis purchased this condo in 2002

Why Ritchard Lewis chose Siesta Key

My family has been going to Siesta Key since 1960. It sure is a different place now, but you still find the casual beach lifestyle that made it popular. My parents bought a condo in Crystal Sands when it was being built, and it was natural for us to be in the same complex when we were buying. We never get tired of being there, our kids love going, and we are always looking forward to our next visit whenever we leave.

What makes this condo unique

Number one is, of course, Crescent Beach. Its a wide, flat beach where the sand does not get hot, and it goes on for miles. Within Crystal Sands, you will find a more residential feeling development than many on the Key. The villas are on small streets that run off the main drive; there isn't a stream of traffic running past your door. It is quiet and safe. The grounds are beautiful, and well maintained. The pools are beautiful and heated.

Siesta Key is a beach community, and we've tried to provide that comfortable beach experience in our condo. We hope you will agree!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We hope you had a great vacation at Villa #7 in Crystal Sands! We truly appreciate your renting from us! We want your stay to be comfortable, and hope you will let us know if there is anything we can do to make the condo better for you.

We hope you enjoyed your stay, will want to come back, and will tell your friends about us!

We enjoyed our stay. Plastic on lanai windows made it unusable though - no air flow -so too hot

  • 4 of 5

We love Crystal Sands. The construction noise by the pool was a lot though - relentless until 4:30 M-F. The restrooms near the main pool ( beachside ) need some work - they often did not smell good. Our unit could use a few more larger beach towels but otherwise was delightful.

Owner's Response: Very happy you enjoyed your stay in the villa The "plastic" on the lanai windows are actually four -section vinyl panels. The panels easily slide up on their tracks, and end up stacked at the top so that 75% of the opening is uncovered. All of the openings are screened. There are six panels, on two sides of the lanai, so there is good air circulation and the lanai is quite usable all year long. There is also a ceiling fan on the lanai, because as you point out, it's hot in the summer. Thanks wish you had contacted me and I would have been able to explain this to you. I'm sorry it was a problem and impacted your enjoyment of the villa We have eight beach towels in two sizes. The larger ones are quite large, but the others are beach, not bath, size. Again, I'm sorry you were disappointed, and if you had contacted me, I would happily had you purchase others and reimbursed you I will be in Sarasota in a coup,e of weeks and take a look at this I will certainly agree with you about the construction. It is a necessary procedure which I informed you of before your vacation. Fortunately, it is only at the hirise building, so the noise doesn't affect the quality of life in the villas. It can be a bit noisy, however. By Thanksgiving, the work should be done, and by next year, additional improvements to the property will make things much improved In this case, our family was in the co do the week before you, and I was there for a couple of days immediately after. Your family took great care of the condo, which we certainly appreciate and thank you for. Overall, it sounds like you had an enjoyable time, and we'd love to have you back. Given the chance, we are looking to address any problems and improve our guests experience.

Wonderful Villa and Best Beach in USA

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th consecutive year staying at Villa 7 and we have already signed-up to return next year. This place is like our home away from home during January and February. The owner is so accommodating and always easily accessible. Every year the villa has something updated and he always wants to know what he can do to improve the villa. Having an attached garage is a big plus and it is full of beach toys and chairs. Of course the best part is the beach. Siesta Key is one of the best beaches you will ever find and we have been to many. You can't go wrong renting this property.

Loved the Villa

  • 5 of 5

We've been going to the Florida gulf coast for several weeks the past 3 winters and this is the best place we've found. The villa is spacious is nicely furnished with upgrades through out. We especially appreciated the garage and the full size washer and drier. Of course the best part of staying in Siesta Key is the beach. The sand is like no where else we have stayed and there were plenty of chairs available, although the villa is well stocked with beach chairs, an umbrella (a must have for long afternoons in the sun), and beach toys. We found the owner, Ritch, to very accommodating. He even provided us with a brand new crock pot when we asked if there was one available. We have already signed-up for 6 weeks next year!
