Five Star Location with Total Remodel-High End Everything-No expense spared
Premier location. This 2 Bedroom/2 Bath penthouse condo is in the most requested location in the Crystal Sands complex because of the spectacular panoramic view. A million dollar view can be seen from each room. The unit sits directly on the water, and looking out, the ocean waves and Crescent Beach views are unsurpassed anywhere else on Siesta Key. Sunsets enjoyed nightly, plus postcard-like views from the bedroom windows, living room and 32 foot expansive lanai. Few other vacation complexes on this barrier island come as close to the water as this one. Let the waves serenade you, while you enjoy the white powdery sand on your private beach, complete with complimentary beach chairs. Or if a direct ocean-front pool is more to your liking, relax in your beach chair, while listening to the surf and sea gulls; at one of our two heated swimming pools.
***Newly remodeled** Ceramic tile and natural stone throughout, new bathrooms, new kitchen, granite countertops, crown molding, all high-end furnishings and accessories, PLUS opened up living room view with expanded floor to ceiling glass doors across entire living room.
The condo is fully furnished to make your vacation carefree. Every convenience of home,including Calphalon pots & pans, beach towels, beach chairs/rafts/umbrellas, and a washer and dryer in the unit for your convenience. Also includes newest air conditioning technology with special filtration unit which kills mold, odors, bacteria and viruses from circulating air.
The building complex offers two heated swimming pools, 3 elevators (one is glass enclosed with sky line views of the entire island), assigned covered parking, on-site maintenance and security for all entrances and pool area. This top-of-the-line condo has a million dollar view, plus the amenities and beach front accommodations of a 5 star resort. Minutes away is Siesta Village with its quaint shops and restaurants, or within a short drive is St. Armand’s Circle, an upscale area with trendy restaurants and shops situated next to Lido Beach. Or if you want to leave paradise for a short drive north, stop at any number of ocean front restaurants on your way to downtown Sarasota, home of the Ringling Museum, Marina Jack’s, or the many sidewalk cafes and pubs lining Main Street. However, at the end of the day, come back to your ocean retreat, because after all, it is all about the VIEW!
We love Siesta Key, the beautiful beach, white quartz sand, and year round great weather. Plus, we enjoy the quaint charm of Siesta Village's restaurants and shops, while riding bikes throughout the barrier island or a quick car ride to downtown Sarasota or St. Armand's Circle. The relaxed island atmosphere brought us back year after year, so we finally decided to buy a slice of paradise right on the beach. Now we can enjoy the beautiful sunsets from every room of our condo, or walk just steps to the beach or ocean front pool to enjoy beachfront living!
Debbie Borowske purchased this condo in 2008
Crystal Sands is located on the barrier island of Siesta Key in Sarasota Florida. Located on the Gulf of Mexico, the island is conveniently located approximately 15-20 minutes from the Sarasota (SRQ) airport, or one hour from Tampa (TPA) or Ft. Meyers (RSW). Families can also incorporate a Disney or Universal Studios trip, as it is an easy interstate drive of 2 hours to Crystal Sands.
Crystal Sands is one of the few condominiums that is literally steps to the beach. Other complexes are set back much farther from the beach, look out over foliage or rooftops, and ours does not. Our penthouse 2Bed/2Bath unit has a view from every room, that few can match. One can enjoy panoramic views of downtown Sarasota, ocean front sunsets or postcard views of Crescent Beach. The complex is also one of just a few that have an oceanfront pool.
We've stayed in several properties on Siesta Key and I can say unequivocally that Debbie and Don's condo has the most amazing 180 degree views we have ever seen - beach to bay! Every room has expansive beach views and entry onto the screened lanai, where we watched the incredible sunsets every night. The unit itself is spacious and beautifully finished with an updated tropical feel and every amenity you could need for a perfect beach get away. Debbie was a wonderful, organized owner to work with, we will most definitely be staying again!
I'm going to keep this brief. We spend a lot of time in these short term rentals and I can say unequivocally that Debbie and Don have missed nothing with this unit. They are true pros and you will NOT be disappointing. If you want to stay at Siesta Key on the beach-this is the place. We will def be back!
Debbie was a great owner to work with. From answering my initial questions, to making payments, to getting the keys, she was very attentive and responsive to any questions that we had. The condo itself was VERY clean and had everything that you needed for your stay. There were lots of beach towels, beach toys and pool noodles, and the kitchen was fully stocked with all the kitchen utensils that you needed. The view from the 12th floor is OUTSTANDING. Words and pictures can't describe it as being there and oh how we wish we were back there right now! I don't think we ever ate at the kitchen table because we always ate out on the screened in porch for our meals since the views were fantastic. We love Crystal Sands for its location right on the beach. A short elevator ride down to the lobby and a few steps out the door led to the 1st pool right next to the beach and the beach is only a few steps away. A covered and assigned parking space is great as well as the second pool up by the complex entrance. That pool is a hidden gem as most afternoons we were the only family using it! Nice. Practically our own private pool. Overall, Debbie and her condo are VERY referable and we let family and friends know how incredible this place is. I can't think of a better recommendation except that my family and I can't wait to stay there again. Thanks Debbie for a wonderful vacation.

My family and I have been staying in this condo for two weeks every summer for the past 6 years. It is absolutely beautiful in every way. Debbie and Don have thought of everything to ensure that your stay will be perfect. The best part of this condo is the amazing view of the Gulf and the crystal white sand beaches. The view from this 12th floor penthouse is spectacular. My family thinks of this condo as their second home and we can't thank Debbie and Don enough for sharing their piece of Paradise with us each year. When we leave every year, my kids remind me that we will be back in 50 weeks!
