ReviewsWrite a review
Had to accommodate a large family gathering and the open floor plan and large spaces helped. Nice kitchen and we were invited to use what was there and milk, eggs, coffee and the basics were kindly provided. Boat didn't get used but the offer was appreciated. Open floor plan made sleeping with a snorer in the house a little inconvenient but apparently there are plans to add some privacy walls which would be helpful. Access to the bathroom must go through a bedroom if you are staying in the back of the house. Owners offered lots of help while we were there.

About the owner: I have lived in Sarasota my entire life. I am a USCG Captain and have run an active fishing guide service and eco-tour business in the area for many years. Tropical Shores is a hidden gem, offering a great location for so many activities. Since I work in multiple areas from Boca Grande to North Sarasota, the location is great.
