Recent Crystal Sands reviews

  • Fantastic Place!

    "This is our new favorite place to stay at Siesta Key, and we have stayed at many over the years. Crystal Sands is a great complex. The building is well-positioned to get great ocean views (the high rise building—not the villas), and it’s one of just a few properties along Crescent Beach that has an ocean front pool. Best of all, the lanais jut out from the building allowing for a panoramic view and good air flow, unlike many of the balconies along Crescent Beach that are closed in on three sides giving a tunnel-vision view of the beach and not a speck of breeze. This particular unit may not be the most updated one in the building, but it is spotless and all of the furnishings and appliances are of high quality and in good working order. There is a washer/dryer inside the unit, which is a big plus so you don’t have to continually run down the breezeway to the laundry room and try to gather enough quarters to do your laundry. The unit is very well equipped with everything you need—laundry detergent, dishwashing detergents, paper towels, tissue, toilet paper, spices/condiments for cooking, beach toys, several beach umbrellas and chairs (in addition to the ones Crystal Sands supplies on the beach), books, puzzles, local maps, DVDs, and enough towels for an army. This unit feels like a home rather than a rental unit. It is also located at the end of the building closest to the beach, so the view is one of the best in the building. And to top it off, this unit is very reasonably priced at hundreds less than some of the professionally managed units in the building. The only downside is that there is a 2-week minimum rental, which we can’t always do. A highlight of our stay was getting to know the owners, Essie and Mel, a bit. They are a lovely, in love, couple, married over 60 years. Essie seems to really enjoy her role as manager of the condo. She not only managed all the arrangements smoothly, she made us feel like family. “Hospitality” is her middle name! She has waiting for her guests a very generous welcome basket of gourmet sandwich fixin's and more. If you arrive exhausted after a hard day of travel, you can just crash and relax without even having to go out to eat or get groceries that first night. Thanks to Essie and Mel for sharing their condo. We hope to return many times in the future."

  • Outstanding

    "WOW. There are not enough words to explain this wonderful condo. The spectacular view alone is well worth the stay. The condo is exceptionally clean and the beds are very comfortable. The owners, Dave and Cindy, bent over backwards to make our stay enjoyable. One of the best vacations that I have taken at Siesta Key. Close to the downtown area with many restaurants to pick from. I am definitely going back and staying here!"

  • Comfortable Condo with a spectacular view

    "We took a gamble, renting this condo for a month, but we glad we did. The apartment has large sliding glass doors in the family room, which allows for a beautiful, un-obstructed view. We appreciated greatly the benefits of quiet, that the split bedroom layout provides. The condo is well decorated, very well stocked -there are even two bathroom robes in the master bedroom. It is clean, with comfortable beds (sheets are super soft) and comfy furniture. Every single room has an ocean view, even the kitchen. There are a few grocery stores nearby. Some clothing stores, restaurants/bars, and a convenience store are in walking distance. If you don't feel like driving to a dinner downtown S.Key, the local shuttles will pick you up, and bring you back for a small tip - $5 per person on average. We enjoy long walks, and there are plenty beautiful sites. The check-in, and the check-out both were a breeze. Highly recommend."

  • Pizza delivery guy stunned at awesome view!

    "The view - breathtaking from the moment you open the door. We are repeat guests and will be returning, hopefully, for many many years. This condo has it all. We even used the crock pot this year and had BBQ'ed pork waiting for pulled pork sandwiches at the end of the day. Our highlight was the gasp from the pizza delivery guy (City Pizza near by) when we opened the door and he peered in and saw what we look forward to each year - the view! Loved our stay this July and we look forward to next July..."
