About Donna Grimmer

Hi. I'm Donna Grimmer. My husband Dave and I have four condos that I would love to show to you. They are vrbo 314793 at House of the Sun, vrbo 721757, vrbo 108307 at Sea Club II and this one at Crescent Royale. If you are familiar with youtube, you can search out my videos by typing donnagrimm into the search engine at youtube. Although I do not live in Florida, I'm on Siesta Key many times a year and constantly check to make sure that my condos are in excellent condition. If you have any questions about my condos, please feel free to contact me anytime through this VRBO website. Have a great day.

Donna Grimmer purchased this condo in 2003

Why Donna Grimmer chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

Dave and I have been coming to Siesta Key for over 15 years and we love it. We decided to purchase our condo at Crescent Royale for so many reasons. First, we really like Crescent Royale. We enjoy the large, heated pool, the meticulously maintained grounds and the fact that we have great views of Siesta Key Public Beach from all of the rooms of our first floor unit. We also love the floor plan of this particular unit as well as the face that we can walk from the door of our lanai right to the beach in less in about one minute The bedrooms have the bathrooms privately inside of each bedroom and the bedrooms are separated by the living/dining room, making them very private bedroom 'suites' within the condo. We enjoy the fact that we can walk out of the front of the lanai, cross the street and be on the beach in about a minute. Our back door takes us right to the reserved parking spot for our car. The convenience of the first floor, along with the views and the great layout of this particular unit, influenced us to purchase this unit before it had a chance to go on the market. We just love it here!

What makes this condo unique

This condo is equipped to truly make you feel that you are in a home away from home. You will find a generous supply of bath and beach towels, paper products, and lots of extras not typically found in rentals. Both bathrooms have bar soap as well as liquid hand soap and there are hair dryers in both bathrooms. Beaching it is a breeze from my condo. You will find beach chairs and beach umbrellas as well as a good assortment of beach toys at the condo. Being on the first floor, you don't have to take the elevator or walk the stairs. Just walk out the lanai door with your gear, cross Beach Road, and you are on Siesta Key Beach. The video tour that is attached to this web site will show you just how close the beach is to my door. If you did not see the video, then email me. I will be happy to answer your questions and send the video link to you.

To those of you with wheel chairs, this condo would be a good fit. You can get around the condo easily. The 2nd bathroom has grab bars in the shower.

The reserved, covered parking space is a few steps from the back door of the condo. Going to and from your car with lugguge and groceries is a breeze!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for the fun message Donna! So glad we got to meet you and Dave when we were there. We had SUCH a nice time. Next year I'm hoping to bring my husband instead, and we have already started discussing it.

Steps from the beach

Wonderful condo. Literally just walk across the street to the beach. You can't get any closer. Beds were comfy. Close to shopping and restaurants. Would definitely stay again!

Good morning Donna!!!! Your Seista Key rental unit was fantastic. Every thing was very clean, and organized. (I need you to come to my house) The furniture was beautiful. The bedroom was spot free and very comfortable. I couldn't believe that the beach was right across from the unit. The beach was beautiful and the weather fantastic. The kitchen was well detailed and everything anyone could possibly need or want.!!! THANK YOU for a beautiful vacation!!!!!! Sally

Owner's Response: Hi Sally, So happy that you enjoyed staying at my condo at Crescent Royale. We do our very best to stay on top of all of our condos and to make sure that they are in tip-top shape all of the time. This one, in particular, is a real gem because of its location to Siesta Key Beach, easy access to Siesta Key Village, and the wonderful views from all rooms. Maybe you can try one of our other condos next time you come down. Thanks again. Donna G.

Beautiful beach view condo

  • 5 of 5

My family of two adults and one 8 year old spent a fabulous week in Donna's beautiful condo. We really enjoyed the convenient location to the beach, pool and parking. We specifically picked it because we knew there would be a beach fireworks display for July 4th and the location was perfect for viewing. One of the pluses for this lovely condo is the lanai that has a view of the beach, an exit to walk over to the beach and the table that works as a great place to eat. I don't think we ate indoors once while there...dining on the lanai was great, despite the heat, with the ceiling fan. It also held the beach buggy, beach toys, a great sand sifter, and beach umbrellas. All came in handy. I appreciated the drying stand/coat rack out there too for wet suits and towels.

The condo was absolutely immaculate and exactly as seen in the photos. There was plenty of storage space for our clothing and luggage, a well stocked kitchen, and a very convenient laundry room. The only thing we ended up having to add was paper plates and napkins, as I didn't want to take the owner's dishes outdoors, and laundry detergent. Donna even had a laundry basket in the closet that we could use. We used the pool almost every day, and found it to be clean and refreshing. We used the grills near the pool twice. We really enjoyed being able to make the condo our home base for a week at the beach. Siesta Key beach is just beautiful and despite the weird weather pattern the week we were there (extra humid, NO rain!) we had a blast. We spent one day at Venice Beach and used the sand sifter from the lanai to find shark teeth! We were able to easily walk the mile into the center of town in Siesta Key to shop and get ice cream. We even took advantage of the free shuttle service to get a ride back for fun. Siesta Key is a fun and friendly beach town! We can't wait to visit again! Thank you, Donna, for sharing your beautiful condo with us!

Owner's Response: Hi Diane, Thank you for such a great note. You touched based on just about everything that I try to maintain in all of my condos...cleanliness, comfort and all of the little extras that make a vacation easy. You were the perfect guest and I welcome you back to this condo or the other 3 that I have on the key. Hope to have you back again soon.

Donna was great communicating by email. The place was exactly as we expected after reading the description and reviews. The facilities were perfect for our family with pre-teen boys. The location was PERFECT! Loved it.

Owner's Response: Hi Mark, It is a pleasure to be able to share our place at Crescent Royale with families such as yours. I hope that you will remember to contact me if you come back again. I have four places on the key and you will always be welcome back to any of them. Mark, one of the things that I like to do for my Canadian and European guests who have spent their previous vacations at one of my condos and with whom I have established a relationship is to give them the option to pay when they get to the key. It saves all of the hassles of credit card and international processing fees. I would like you to know that if you come back to Siesta Key, remind me that you were a guest in 2016. Thanks again for being a wonderful guest!

Perfect in Every Way!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful vacation in Siesta Key. Nothing could have been better! The location is perfect to walk right across the street to the beach. Siesta Village is about a mile away. After a day at the beach, we would go to the Village for dinner and finish off the evening with an ice cream at Big Olaf's. Donna is the best tour guide. We followed her suggestions about the Le Barge harbor cruise out of Sarasota, the restaurants to have dinner and Happy Hour at Sniki Tiki was the Best. This condo is very clean and anything that you need to feel right at home is there for you. We are planning to come back again next April. Thank you again, Donna :)

Owner's Response: Hi Marion, Thank you for such a wonderful review. So happy to hear that you have enjoyed my 'things to do and see' sheet. I need to add more ideas to the sheet as I find more and more fun and interesting things in Sarasota every time I am there. I'm glad that you have made yourself at home at the condo. Guests like you make all the difference in the world. Thank you!
