                    Located east of and close to I 75 so getting away to nearby attractions such as the Manatee Snorkle at Crystal River is convenient. This home is close to shopping centers. Kitchen is very well stocked. Home is very spacious and ideal for dogs, as the yard is fenced and most of the house is tiled rather than carpeted. Pool area is lovely. Weather was too cool for swimming but we did enjoy eating outdoors. The neighborhood is quiet and the home is located about six blocks from a large wetland that features ibises, herons and the like, not to mention about 20 wintering sandhill cranes in a nearby field. Also an easy drive to Myakka State Park which has good hiking and a number of alligators. We spent a week here after Christmas with our daughter and her family and would recommend it both for the quality of the home and the location. And, if you want a great meal, eat at INKANTO, a Peruvian restaurant on Tamiami Trail in Sarasota.

                    Recommended for: Families with young children, pet owners, age 55+, sightseeing, girls getaway, families with teenagers.

                    My family and I had a fabulous time at this beautiful home. This is the kind of rental you would love to come back to year after year. Honestly, the pictures do not do justice to this property. The pool, patio and yard are awesome. We are northerners and not accustomed to pools right outside the backdoor and outdoor dining so this was very nice for us. The kitchen is well supplied with cooking essentials. The laundry facilities are great. The bedrooms are nice. The three bathrooms are big and clean. House location is not far from our two favorite Sarasota destinations....twenty minute drive to Siesta Key Beach and ten minutes to Millie's Pancake House restaurant. Plenty of shopping nearby. Close to I75.

                    This house was great for us (6 adults,2kids-5&3 & one teenager) It was just in the right spot not too close not too far, quite neighborhood. We loved the layout & the decor. Great kitchen for entertainment - i was making smoothies/drink while the rest was enjoying the pool. As one review said that the pool is not gated to watch out for the little ones as always safety first make sure there is an adult present at all time & life jacket on the little one :)

                    What a great place to spend time away. The house was great all the way around - very beautiful, clean, spacious, and comfortable, without being so nice that you felt like you had to walk on eggshells while there! Geoff the owner was super friendly and easy to access when we had questions. The pool is stunning, the kitchen is well appointed, the beds and linens were top notch. It really lives up to the pictures. And its in a pretty convenient location, even though its not right next to a beach or anything its easy to get anywhere you want to go. Our 6 year old loved it too, he didn't want to leave. Loved it, will likely go back.

                    My sisters and I wanted a get away home that was peaceful but not too far from shopping, restaurants, the beach, etc. This home was ideal! It is very well appointed - comfortable - clean and we had the pleasure of meeting the owner who was also very nice and just a call away when we had a question. We saw deer strolling on the side of the road leading to the house yet we were just a few minutes from downtown and St. Armands Circle and all the activity. This house is perfect for entertaining and the pool deck area is beautiful -If you are into cooking, it has a cooks kitchen! For me, cooking is not something I do much of on vacation but I do appreciate a beautiful kitchen. I'd highly recommend this house and will likely rent it again in the future.

                    This home is exactly as pictured. All amenities are included. All rooms are spacious. Plenty of room for the children; the large kitchen and wonderful patio area with pool and nice backyard allowed the family to feel very comfortable away from home. Many beaches and shopping areas are just minutes away. Plenty of excellent places to eat very close also. The owners were very welcoming and made plenty of suggestions of places to visit and activities to enjoy during our stay. Would highly recommend to anyone with children or several families gathering to stay.

                    We arrived at Teri and Geoff's fab home and were extremely pleased! The home itself it beautifully appointed; the owners are most helpful and super responsive; and the location just right. We had two families, which included four adults and five kids (ages 1 through 9) and the layout worked very well. There was a lot of what you would need as basic supplies, and that was really helpful to us. The kids swam in the pool which wasn't as warm as normal because it had been cold in Florida but loved it anyway. Out back there is a green lawn where we played a bunch of soccer and it is really a pretty yard. And we grilled some great fish on the BBQ. There is a fantastic indoor/outdoor flow to the home and gives it a resort-like feel. The location of the home itself is great for getting to all the things that you'd want to do in the area and worked out well. The best thing was at the pond across the street there were 100+ pelicans and such a sight for us on arrival. Although, I don't think Teri and Geoff planned it - only kidding. The area has tons of fabulous things to do, like Myakka State Park, Children's Garden, Busch Gardens, Big Cat Game Habitat, Golfing, Siesta Key Beach and seashell collecting. All the stores you need are around too. Definitely a wonderufl find and we loved our stay!!

                    My family and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at this home! When we walked in we were greeted by the open air concept of the home and Teri. The home was very clean and comfortable and very nicely decorated, it did not feel like we were in a rental home. We had 10 adults/older children and did not feel cramped at all. We had plenty of space to sleep, eat and hang around the pool. It was a bit cooler in FL the week we were down, so some days we just stayed by the pool. We all felt so at home, we did not want to leave! You will not be disappointed with this rental! Also the home owners, Geoff and Teri, were very nice and helpful!

                    I'm from Germany and stayed in this amazing and beautiful villa for one week. Therefor the describtion may be written not in the best English :-) The villa is even better than described by the owner. If you want to stay in an amazing villa in beautiful and sunny Florida this is the place you want to be. Spacious living room and an amazing kitchen, awesome bedrooms and bathrooms. Swimmingpool with bbq area. But the best part on this villa is the owner Geoff. He was so helpful in everything. If we needed anything or had a question, no matter what time, he was helpful. I and all those which stayed with me in this beautiful villa can only recommend it.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About the owner: Practically a native to Sarasota, I have been a resident for 36 years. I grew up in this area watched it grow and it is truly a town that has it all. The most beautiful beaches in the world, cultural activities, entertainment, outdoor water sports, fabulous shopping and an unbelievable array of dining options.

                  Why the Owner Chose Bent Tree:
                  This house is very unique and serene and if you never left the property during your stay you would return home refreshed and energized. It is close to everything Sarasota offers but is out of the way enough to be your family's and/or friend's own private paradise.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The true beauty of this home is in the seamless indoor/outdoor feeling you get while staying here. The living room, kitchen and master bedroom open up onto the enormous courtyard pool area doubling the living space and giving off a truly palatial feel. Gather your friends or family and come vacation in our Sarasota Florida Palace!
