This unit is fully stocked with beach towels, linens and bath towels in addition to paper products to start your Siesta Key journey.

From the palm trees dotting the landscape to the view of the harbor where boats come in and out of the Intracoastal Waterway, shops and restaurants are just steps away to the south of this complex. The complimentary trolley service which stops right outside the property on Midnight Pass Rd., provides you with all of your transportation needs while you are on the island, never needing to leave our little slice of paradise on Siesta Key.

The newly renovated, large kitchen with new appliances and oversized eat in countertops makes it so simple to prepare any meals you need to make. There is also separate wine and beer refrigerator along with everything you need to make that perfect cocktail in the evening or to enjoy a special, local beer.

The master bedroom is equipped with a king bed and has a walk in closet with plenty of space for all of your clothing along with a private bathroom.

The guest bedroom has 2 twin beds. Both showers in the 2 bathrooms are walk ins, without tubs.

Walk down 2 buildings in the complex to the Intracoastal Waterway where you can watch the boats go by or throw a line in the water and catch your dinner from the fishing pier.

Relax on our lanai, overlooking the boat basin with your favorite beverage or after a long day spent with your toes in the whitest, finest sand in the world.

We know you will love our little slice of paradise on Siesta Key and we can't wait to share it with you.

Unique Benefits

Deeded beach access allows you to walk directly across the street and access the beautiful white sands of Siesta Key. *NOTE: Tenants contracted with our company are provided with one FOB for access through Crescent Arms.* The south end of Siesta Key is the most convenient location on the island, just steps away from everything you may need during your stay. The free trolley service stops just outside the entry to Siesta Harbor and will take you from Turtle Beach to Siesta Key Village, just a few minutes in either direction.

Area Information

Siesta Key is a barrier island located in Sarasota, Florida, approximately 1 hour south of Tampa, Florida and Tampa International Airport; just 25 minutes from Sarasota Bradenton Airport.

The sand on Crescent Beach, just across the way from this condo, is 99% quartz and is the world's finest, whitest sand in the world. Siesta Key Beach has been named #1 beach twice by Dr. Beach and #1 and #2 in 2022 by Tripadvisor.

Some must do's on the island while you are here is of course to visit Crescent Beach; watch a picture perfect sunset; visit Turtle Beach to the south; visit Siesta Key Village on board the free trolley on the island; rent a boat and spend the day lounging or fishing or both; kayaking; paddleboarding; take a ride on the tiki hut boat up the Intracoastal Waterway; walk to Captain Curt's for a taste of their renowned chowder; eat at one of the local seafood restaurants on the island such as Big Water; have breakfast at Toasted Mango Cafe.

Off the island, you can take a ride to Myakka River State Park and spend the day bike riding, taking an airboat ride or just exploring this fantastic state park while taking in some of the Old Florida that is reflective of our area; eat lunch at The Point restaurant on the Intracoastal Waterway in Osprey while listening to some great music or tossing beanbags for cornhole; take a trip to St. Armand's Circle for shopping and lunch and while you are there, take a walk on Lido Beach on Lido Key, another barrier island; take a trip downtown and have a cocktail at the Rooftop Lounge at the Westin Hotel.

As you can tell, there is a lot to do while you are here, not to mention taking in a show at one of the many arts venues in town.

About the owner: Our love affair with Siesta Key and the community started independently. Maria grew up on Siesta Key in the 70's and returned to Sarasota after attending college and Ed vacationed on Siesta Key in the 80's before moving to Sarasota permanently in 1989. It has been a dream to own on Siesta Key for several years, having been in the hotel and hospitality business for the last 15 years. The completion of this renovation to our Siesta Sand Dollar is a dream come true and we wish to share it with those who appreciate being a part of Siesta Key island living.

Why this property? Newly renovated and well stocked with everything you could possibly think of to make your vacation stay one the best you every experienced. Although it is not gulf front, you still have the serenity of island living since the Siesta Harbor yacht basin is just outside the lanai with water views everywhere. But most importantly, we are local owners and tend to this property regularly, using it for our ourselves as often as we can.

Siesta Sand Dollar

We had an amazing stay at Maria's place at Siesta Harbor. Everything had just been updated and was very modern and beautiful. We would highly recommend her unit and we are looking forward to going back next May.

Great condo for relaxing

This was our first stay in the Siesta Key area and this condo set the bar quite high. It is set in an over 55 complex with a pool, covered parking and across the street access to the beautiful beach. Captain Curt’s, the Daiquiri Deck, a grocery store and coffee shop are all withing walking distance. A trolley stop is in front of the complex. The condo itself is very clean and fully stocked with many items we hadn’t expected. The two bedrooms and associated baths were well appointed with the main bedroom having a walk-in closet. The kitchen is fully updated and large enough for both of us to move around without getting in each other’s way. And the lanai overlooking the waterway access to the intracoastal was our favorite room. But the most impressive feature for us was the quiet. Very relaxing!
