Crescent Beach - looking for 2Br rental May4-11

Hi there,

I've never posted on a forum before, but am looking for advice since we've never been to the Sarasota area. We (4 of us incl 2 kids ages 3 & 7) are looking for a 2Br beachfront condo on Crescent Beach from May 4-11 with wireless internet and laundry. Ideally within walking distance to shops. Our limit is approx $1400-1500 for the week.

Any recommendations? We've looked at the Crescent Arms but it appears the units don't have washer/dryers. Siesta Breakers and Siesta Dunes...not sure? The Crescent looks beautiful, but rates are just a couple hundred higher than we'd like to pay. Any other recommendations are much appreciated!

We'll be there the same week, and are staying at the House of the Sun. The are all 2 bedroom/2 bath units and include stackable washer/dryer in the unit and free wi-fi. The price varries according to category: Oceanfront; Oceanview; or back further. We'll be in an oceanview that will cost $1448, plus $500 security deposit which is refunded after departure. The units are individually owned, so furnishings vary. Their website includes pictures of each unit.

The building is right on Crescent Beach and across the street from several shops, grocery, and a few restaurants within walking distance.

As a first time visitor, you are in for a treat. It is a pretty area, and the gentle gulf is perfect for young children. We've been going there since our son was two--he's now 37!

Enjoy your trip!
