We had a really good time staying in this house. It looks just like the pictures and we voted it one of the prettiest on the block. Location matters and we found the house to be in a very convenient area. Dave, the manager, was professional, easy to work with and was quick to answer our questions. The house and swimming pool are well maintained and the landscaping is gorgeous. The bar made a great desk for our laptop. We spent a lot of time outside relaxing by the pool in the anti-gravity chairs which were so comfortable we wished there were four instead of two! The house is supplied with plenty of paper products, laundry detergent, dish soap and bath soap but no shampoo. It was great to have beach towels available and toys for the pool. I appreciated the updated kitchen with fairly new kitchen appliances, glass top stove, and large refrigerator with ice and water in the door. Publix, Target and Trader Joe's are nearby and Millie's is a great restaurant if you don't want to cook. We didn't find any beaches we didn't like and if you need something else to do, we highly recommend the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens. The private, heated swimming pool was a highlight in itself. We definitely give this house a thumbs up.

Great Vacation Spot

This is a great house to vacation at. Nice relaxing neighborhood! Pool was great and well used while we were there. The beach and every other place we wanted to go was only a short ride from where we were. We would surely recommend the house to others for their vacation! Thanks for a great vacation spot.

What you see in the photos of this house is what you get. Very nice, and clean! The pool & patio area were wonderful. Minutes to Siesta Key and other beaches, shopping, and a short (executive) golf course right in the back of the house (club rental was cheap, too). Our beloved dog, Jezzi, was right at home, too! The manager, Dave, and his wife Sue, were very pleasant, and accommodating. We would recommend this house for anyone who's looking for a nice place in the Sarasota area. We will definitely stay at this house again!

Manager response: My goal is to have happy vacationers. I am so glad you had a good time and enjoyed your stay.
With being frequent travelers to Siesta Key and renting many places - we found this one to be fantastic.! The home is located in a quiet, safe neighborhood and close to shopping and most importantly only minutes to the beautiful Siesta Key Beach. The home is absolutely beautiful, the pictures displayed on this site are exactly what you get. From the booking process on, everything was very professional and handled with ease - no worries. We travel to Siesta Key 3 to 4 times a year and from this point on, we will always check availability on this property first. We were extremely happy!

Manager response: My goal is the have happy vacationers with no worries. I am so glad you liked the house and my process.
The place was a perfect family rental. In a nice, safe and quiet neighborhood. ~15 minutes to Siesta Key beach. Great, private pool. Well stocked kitchen. Nice dining room. Bedrooms were a good size. Little BBQ outside. Homeowner friendly and available for any queries. No unpleasant surprises. It was very clean and had everything we were expecting through what we saw online. (would make sense to replace queen bed in 2nd bedroom with 2 singles but that is just a preference.)
