About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Look no further, you have found your Luxurious Penthouse Condo Rental! Located directly on the sparkling white sandy beach of Crescent Beach.

The condo is beautifully appointed and absolutely immaculately clean! Another amenity you won't find in many condo's on Siesta Key is carpet! Would you have tile on every floor in your house? Then don't settle for cold tiled floors for your vacation retreat!

The condo also comes with a pull out twin bed, and fits perfectly between the current twin beds. Or pull the two twin beds together, and with a specially made harness that keeps the beds together while covering up the gap, you have a comfortable queen bed!

Have Kids? The flat screen TV's in each bedroom, as well as in the living room will keep them busy when you are looking for some down time. The XBox gaming system is a complete hit with the kids, and lets mom and dad unwind quietly! (Can you tell I have three boys) :)

Wireless Internet Access: Wireless Internet Access if Free.

XBox Gaming System: Condo comes with an XBox gaming system and 15 games. There are a variety of games for all ages.

About The Owner

Hi my name is Gary Knaak, and I can't begin to tell you how much our family loves going to Siesta Key! I have 2 boys, and each year they look forward to our April family vacation on the white sandy beaches of Crescent Beach. To us, Crescent Arms is home, and we look forward to sharing our home with others to experience the awesome beaches of Siesta Key!

The Owner purchased this condo in 1995

Why The Owner chose Siesta Key

All you need to do is vacation in Siesta Key with the beautiful white sandy beaches once, and you are hooked for life.

What makes this condo unique

Our unit is close to Stickney Point Bridge, so getting into Sarasota is easy and quick. We are also located within walking distance of a grocery store and several places to eat.

Guestbook comments from the owner name is Gary Knaak, and I am the owner of 705N at Crescent Arms. I have to admit, I haven't been diligent in telling people who rent from me to go to my guest book, so that's why I am writing this. If you need a referral or would like to hear from past guest about what they think about my place, please email me with your request...I would be glad to accommodate you. In the mean time, I am going to try and remember to tell people who rent from me to check out my guest book! :) Many Thanks for thinking about making my condo your next holiday vacation spot!Gary Knaak

Absolutely wonderful

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a fantastic time staying at this condo. We were actually nervous to see what it was really going to be like when we got there, we thought the price was too good to be true but it was everything the pictures showed and even more. We could not say enough great things about our stay. Gary is great to work with and very fast to respond to any questions. The condo is in a great location, has anything you would need, is updated and clean and the beach is stunning. Our son who just turned 2 loved his first visit to the beach so much, he didn't want to leave. Thank you so much Gary for sharing your wonderful condo and letting my family stay. We definitely plan on returning.

Owner's Response: My three sons grew up going to Siesta Key on our family vacations, and although they are 21, 18 and 14 now, they still all remember and talk about how beautiful the beach and surrounding areas are from when they were infants. They have memories they will keep with them forever. So it's extremely heartwarming to hear other couples and their kids being able to stay at my condo and create lasting memories of their own. I believe a positive memorable vacation starts the minute you walk through the door of my condo, and look for the first time in anticipation what you hope is exactly what the pictures on my web site portray. Everyone staying at my condo should expect it to be up-to-date, smell and be clean, and there are no exceptions or excuses in my opinion for it not to be, as you have chosen my condo for your vacation, and I take that responsibility very serious. Thank you for sharing your feedback! I look forward to having you back to create more memories of Siesta Key! Gary

siesta key stay

  • 4 of 5

great location and access to beach. So nice to have lounges and chairs provided. Nice condo. The bathroom a bit tight to manuver around in and toliet was very low. Hard on elderly knees. Beds comfortable. We hit cool spell so did not spend much time on lanai, but when good weather very enjoyable and when door open can hear surf.

Great location, nice clean condo!

  • 5 of 5


Thank you for letting us stay at your condo. We really enjoyed our stay!!! Kids loved their bedroom with nice furniture. The condo has a great location with ocean view from the balcony and just a minute walk to the beach. The only thing we did not like was the chipped/cracked plates and cups in the kitchen but I think its due to the fact that they are ceramic and that material chips easily. ( I owned ceramic kitchenware before). Also, the dryer was not drying clothes from 1st time and we had to pay twice to dry our one load every day. It adds up and becomes pricey. But again, this is not the fault of owners. I wish the washer/dryer were in the unit. Overall, we really liked the condo, location and beautiful water at the beach. Will be definitely coming back again.

Owner's Response: I thoroughly appreciate your comments and review. If I can give any advice to people that rent my condo is this. Because I have owned my condo for over 20 years, and I have a lot of repeat guests, I only get to visit my condo a couple of times a year to make sure everything is perfect for my guests. In between those times, things happen that are out of my control. But because I want nothing more than for my guests to have an extraordinary stay, I highly suggest whenever something isn't exactly the way you envisioned it, or if something is not at the level of your expectation, please let me know immediately so I can rectify the situation during your stay. After reading this review, I have had all of my plates and cups in the kitchen replaced, and I contacted the condo association to look into why the dryer isn't functioning properly. As I tell my guests that contact me with anything that may not be as they wished, "I can't fix that of which I don't know of". I truly appreciate hearing from my guests, and it gives me great pride to show them how much I truly care about their stay. Many thanks once again for your comments!
