Sarasota natives now living in the Northeast, we know the area and have always admired this beautiful building directly on the 2+ miles of world famous white sand beaches of Siesta Key in Sarasota.

Crystal Sands has two heated pools, one directly on the beach. For your convenience, the unit also has on-site management for check-in and to offer any assistance you may need during your stay.
Our second extended stay at this wonderful condo. The view is spectacular and the furnishings are tasteful and comfortable. We were very much at home here, and the owner is great. Everything you need is provided. We will be back next year!
What a marvelous vacation destination. Great location, beautiful interiors, attentive owner, lovely corner of the world. Could not have been a more fun two weeks.
This condo is very beautiful and very much worth the price. It has been totally remodeled with very tasteful décor, furnishings and finishes. The views from the 12th floor condo of Siesta Key Beach are stunning. We couldn't have been more happy with our stay and accommodations and plan on coming back often. Absolutely perfect!
We celebrated Christmas and New Yeas here with friends and family. Breath taking views from every room. The lanai was perfect for coffee and relaxing with a cocktail at night. The firework display on New Year Eve was in creditable. We had the best view around. The attention to details and decorate made you feel right at home. Great local restaurants and perfect beach for walking. The unit had all the local information needed for your stay. We couldn’t have been happier with our stay and can’t wait to come back.
Unit was all you could hope for. All up to date with everything you could want or need. Great view, plus very easy access from the parking lot to the elevator. Only drawback is the temperature setting on the water heater is too low. It is not hot enough and you never even add cold water.
We brought our 2 children (ages 5 & 7) in June. Everything about our vacation was perfect. The condo was immaculate and had everything that we could possibly need. The views of the gorgeous beach were amazing. We have already booked for next year and we can't wait to go back!
2011 was the 21st year of the Best Beaches list, put together by Dr. Stephen Leatherman (also knows as 'Dr. Beach'), director of Florida International University's Laboratory for Coastal Research in Miami. In 2015.
In addition to its sparkling sand and beautiful water, Siesta Beach, Leatherman said, boasts of the perfect waves, not for surfers, but for kids and families to play in. Rather than feet, the waves are measured in inches and the beach gradually slopes into the Gulf waters, making it a very safe area for children.
Following is a representative independent review of Siesta Beach by Jerry Chandler from December 19, 2012:
The world is rife with “perfect beaches” – places remote and removed where you can travel in time and space. Problem is, they are, well, remote and removed. To really register, a beach needs to be comparatively accessible, as well as consummately wonderful.
As for the first criteria, how ‘bout Sarasota? It’s close, on Florida’s lower Gulf Coast. As for wonderful, Dr. Stephen Leatherman (a.k.a. ‘Dr. Beach) labeled Siesta Key Beach the number one beach in the country last year.
The folks at Visit Sarasota County echo Leatherman’s lauding of this eight-mile long swath of sun, sand and sea oats on the Gulf of Mexico. The west side of the barrier island is where you want to be. The white sand beach is dazzling, your bare feet making a satisfying silica‘scrunch, scrunch’ and you head to the water beyond.
The area is perfect for constructing your own personal sand castles, launching that colorful kite you’ve always wanted to fly, or merely chilling out and listening to the sound of the surf wash away the noise of a workaday world back on the mainland.
