Once you visit Siesta Key it is easy to understand how the baby powder, sugary white sand of Crescent Beach has been acclaimed as one of the most beautiful in the world. This four-mile beach of pure white sand runs gently into the Gulf with a mild surf, making it ideal for safe swimming, walking, jogging, or just sitting back and enjoying the view in the lounge chair.
The location on the beach is very convenient. Easy walking to the grocery store, drug store, souvenirs, clothing shops, fine and casual restaurants. The "point of rocks" is also an easy walk. This unusual beach area has the best shells and if you time the tide just right, it is like your own private marine land with starfish, sea urchins, etc. Siesta Key Village is a short drive or long walk and also has its own unique shopping and restaurants. Rental equipment (bikes, canoes, kayaks, boats, jet skis etc.) are conveniently available.

About Dennis Raetzel
My family has owned several properties on Siesta Key over the years. I grew up taking family vacations and spending summers on Siesta key that hold many fond memories for me. The Villa is unique in that it is like owning your own private home on the beach. It is also the largest Villa on the Crescent Arms property with its own private patio with a brand new grill.
Dennis Raetzel purchased this Villa in 1985
Why Dennis Raetzel chose Siesta Key
My family travelled the beaches of Florida their entire lives and never found a nicer, more relaxing location than Siesta Key.
What makes this Villa unique
The proximity to the beach is the key to Crescent Arms, there is no place closer to the water and more quiet and relaxing.

Quiet, comfortable, and practically on the beach in Siesta Key!
The property was very pleasant, very clean, with a good amount of kitchen needs to be able to prepare a meal, etc. Everything was in working order and the entire community was neat, quiet, and just a walk to the fabulous beach with sand that felt like powder! The location was excellent, and with a car, you can easily find wonderful restaurants and that laid back island feel. We very much enjoyed our stay. Dennis the owner was great and answered any question that I had. The villa is very comfortable.....one bedroom was a master with a king bed and the 2nd bedroom is more suited for children with twins. There was plenty of room.....and the showers were fabulous!
Thank you Bonnie for your kind words, it was a real pleasure having you stay with us.
Please let us know when you wish to return again and we’ll take good care of you!
Perfect Family Getaway!
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.
Thank you so much for taking time to share your positive thoughts and experience during your stay at our little slice of Paradise on Siesta Key!
It is so nice to hear from our Guests that they had a wonderful stay at the beach and that they wish to return. Please come back again anytime as we would be pleased to have you and your family .
Thanks Again very much!
Perfect family vacation!
We had a fantastic family vacation in Siesta Key! Our rental was perfectly located within walking distance of the beautiful Siesta beach. We had everything we needed in our villa. It was clean, well stocked and perfectly located. We plan to go back!
Great Villa, Great Commumity, Great Beach
This is the perfect villa in the best community, Crescent Arms, and all on the best beach in the USA! The villa is well maintained and well stocked with necessary dishware, appliances, and a washer/dryer in the garage. The small patio includes a table and chairs and a gas grill. The large open dining/living area gave us plenty of space for TV watching, reading, dining and entertaining guests. And as a stand alone unit it was easy to unload the car, no shopping cart or elevator required! It was just a short walk from the villa to shopping, restaurants, and the local grocery. The owner was great to work with and made sure everything was ready to go before our arrival. We have stayed in various units at Crescent Arms for over 10 years and this stay was the best. We will be back.
Great time at the beach
My family and I had a wonderful time at Siesta Key. This villa is perfectly situated and offers all of the amenities that we needed. The garage, the large dining/living room, full size washer/dryer and gas grill with patio were among the features of this property that we enjoyed the most. The accessibility to the pool was great too. We are a family of 6 and had no problem finding space in this property! The kids loved the fact that they could come and go as they pleased without needing a key. We have stayed at a number of places up and down Siesta Key and found this villa to be among the best that we have stayed in.
My family and I stayed here spring break 2010 awesome place is very nice, the owner Dennis is great to work with! We are hoping to return again soon! I would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to stay on the beach, it was nice having a private home and not a condo unit where you can hear other people!
No matter what your are seeking for your vacation, Siesta Key has it all to offer. . .shopping, golf, boating, fishing, and so much more. Just a few miles from St. Armands Circle with trendy and eclectic shopping. You may never need to go shopping after experiencing the sugary, white sands of Crescent Beach. The quartz content in the beach makes it cool under your feet and the perfect place to soak in the rays.
