About Laurie Cardwell
Alex and I, Laurie, are from Calgary, Alberta Canada. We both fell in love with Florida, the Gulf side, during a vacation in 2009. We loved the endless beaches and soft white sand. All it takes is a drive down Gulf Boulevard and you will be sold. Lots of road-side pubs and interesting, warm people. It is beach life at its best.
Laurie Cardwell purchased this Condo in 2010
Why Laurie Cardwell chose Sand Key
We purchased 14C in the summer of 2010, and we've never looked back. We love our time there. It's our home away from home and hope that you'll feel the same.
What makes this Condo unique
The Crescent Beach Club Sand Key condo is one of the most recognizable condos on Sand Key or Clearwater Beach. Its unique curved crescent shape is just one of the things that make it a standout on popular Sand Key Beach. The two Crescent Beach Club buildings are mirror images of each other and are located right on the sandy shores of Sand Key Beach. The condos are on the western side of Sand Key, only about 2 miles south of Clearwater Beach and less than a mile south of Sand Key Park. Crescent Beach club is just a half a mile south of The Shoppes at Sand Key which offers dining, shopping, snacks and boutique shops for your entertainment. Crescent Beach Club is located right on Gulf Boulevard with access to the Jolley Trolley almost right on the door step. It provides transportation from Clearwater to Passe-a-Grille.

Great experience all around!!
Leasing the unit from Laurie was truly a great experience.
The unit and complex provided all the amenities you could ask for, just short of it being your own home.
The location is nearly ideal in relationship to everything you would go to a beach community to experience.
The staff that we came in contact with were always gracious and friendly.
Really, the only issue that we had- was that the weather didn't cooperate with our recreational plans half the time we were there, but as they say "that's Florida in July!!"
This will be the first listing that I will check out if/ when my wife and I return, though I may look to make the trip during a different time of year.
Hi Leonard. Many thanks for taking the time to submit a review of our condo. We're happy that you enjoyed your time there. Yes, the weather in July can be unpredictable - October/November is lovely as is April through to the end of May. You were a great guest, and we'd love to have you stay again. Feel free to contact me directly.
Great place for gateway!
Thank you Laurie and Alex for letting us stay at your condo!
My daughter and I had a great time. The condo was very clean and looked exactly like it showed on the pictures. Not only the condo but the whole place is very well maintained and clean. We enjoyed our stay and can’t wait to come back.
Sand Key Beach
Great location. Wonderful experience, everyone at Cresent Beach Club was very nice.
Very nice condo, with a beautiful view from the 14th floor!!
We enjoyed our stay here. Condo was great for us two and we enjoyed many sunsets on the balcony, and the dolphins swimming by almost every day. Very nice to have a washer/dryer right in the unit, kitchen had everything we needed for our stay. Building was very nice as well as pool area, exercise room and commons area.
Thank you for taking the time to review our property, Becky. We're glad that you chose our condo for your vacation and that you enjoyed your stay. We would be happy to have you stay again.
We really enjoyed our visit in Laurie's condo. Everything you needed was right there! Thank you for making our yearly visit to Sand Key at Crescent Beach Condos so relaxing.
Hi Mary, It was a pleasure to have you as our guest. We're so happy that you enjoyed your stay!
