About the property


Location, view & value. This is the best location, the best value, and absolutely the most stunning view in Siesta Key. There’s even a nice view of Sarasota Bay and the mainland from your kitchen window. Views galore from every room (except for 1 closet).

This 11th floor condo has both panoramic views of the Gulf of Mexico and the beach that was voted #1 in America in 2011 all at a great price. (Photos are not distorted or touched-up. These are the actual views!) What you see is what you get. You get all the privacy and comfort and serenity that you desire. The 2 bedroom 2 bath split plan provides privacy for multi-generational family vacations or is ideal for 2 couples. The lanai runs the full length of the gulf side of the condo with access from both bedrooms and the living room. View mesmerizing sunsets in total privacy. Only the pelicans flying by can see you.

Condo amenities include: Leather furniture; flat screen TVs with DVD player and cable service; internet access; free local and long distance calling throughout the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico; bed linens and towels; and cookware and dishes. Each condo has an assigned parking spot. A welcome kit awaits each new guest so you don’t have to rush out to shop immediately for basic supplies. Come as you are and just sit back and enjoy the beach.

The Crystal Sands condominium community has 2 pools nestled among beautiful lush tropical landscaping. There are 2 separate banks of elevators which are secured for your peace of mind after 5:00 p.m. daily. The glass elevator offers impressive views of Siesta Key, Sarasota, and the bay. Beach chairs and loungers are provided by the condo association and cabanas are available for rent.

There are beach activities galore ranging from lazing in the sun or sauntering along the white sandy beach to jet skiing or parasailing and everything in between. The newly remodeled Public Beach area has new tennis courts, picnic areas, playgrounds, plus many more features.

Contact us regarding special needs.

Siesta Key is conveniently located for enjoying all kinds of activities—nature, cultural, sports, plenty of recreational shopping, and fine dining nearby for all budgets and tastes.

Another wonderful vacation here. Perfect location! Awesome view. Perfect beach. Great location with easy on/off the Key. Wonderful clean condo with everything one might need. Addition of a washer/dryer, a bonus since our last stay here. Vickie, Abe, and Jason are great hosts and responsive owners to any problems that might come up. The fruit basket, snacks, and beverages were awesome. Thank you for another fantastic stay. Look forward to coming back again. THANK YOU!!

Excellent.....Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

Great condo. The view was spectacular. We were 5 people

; 2 adults and 3 kids and there was enough room to sleep, walk around and have fun without feeling like we are stuck inside. The owners were great people to work with , very easy going and very generous. When we arrived at the condo there was a basket of fruit and a basket of snacks to help us get settled in after a long trip getting to Florida. All the rooms were clean, especially the beds. Very important,!!!!

Thank you Vickie , Abe and Jason for a wonderful stay.

Wonderful vacation - Siesta Key is the best !

  • 5 of 5

We just left unit 1103 after a 3 week stay: our 3rd visit to Crystal Sands resort. The unit is perfect, view is the best and everything went very smoothly Vicki leaves the most thoughtful gift baskets and fresh flowers - such a nice touch. Would highly recommend this unit and Crystal Sands - we'll be back next year for sure !!!
