On a Saturday morning, Sarasota (SRQ) Airport is a 22 minute drive. (for weekday driving add 5-7 mintues. Overall, a very central location convenient to walking to the beach and several restaurants. For the 4th of July, walk to Siesta Key to watch the fire works and then walk home while the drivers idle in traffic for an hour to cross back to the mainland.
The house has an open floor plan with a bar-style kitchen counter open to a den and a formal dining area. It has tile floors, bright beach colors, and wonderful lighting in the morning and at sunset. A full kitchen with a dishwasher, stove, refrigerator, oven, and all the cooking utensils make meal preparation practical. There is a second refrigerator in the laundry room so buying in bulk for the long-term renters is possible. The master bedroom is spacious with its own bathroom and a big walk-in closet with windows. The master bedroom has a king-size bed, one bedroom has two single beds, and one bedroom has a queen size sleeper sofa. A crib can be provided and would fit in any of the rooms. The tile throughout most of the living area and small size of the home make it cozy and easy to keep tidy.
The full bath next to the smaller two bedrooms has a tub and shower. The den has a love seat and a queen-size sleeper sofa. A big office with plenty of room to work and a filing cabinet is located next to the den. French doors close the office off from the den for privacy. An internet connection can be hooked up via Comcast cable or Verizon DSL for an additional charge. The laundry room is next to the office with plenty of counter space to sort clothes as well as a sink.
At the front of the house, play cards or enjoy a drink on the covered porch as the sun sets in the west. The covered carport has room for two cars and there is room for a third car on the uncovered parking pad. The backyard is a big lawn that is unfenced and perfect for a small dog (under 35 lbs please) to run and play. Moms also have plenty of room to set up a toddler pool for daytime fun.
This home is perfect for an older couple seeking the warm weather and mild breezes from the Gulf in Jan -April, or the young family on vacation in a beach resort area during the summer. The office is a separate room with a long counter and plenty of space to set up shop for business. Dog friendly.
THIS HOUSE IS NOW BEING MANAGED AND RENTED BY A PROPERTY MANAGEMENT COMPANY. PLEASE CONTACT THE OWNER FOR MORE DETAILS.

ReviewsWrite a review
We stayed in the house from Jan through Mar, 2010. The landlord is great and arranged for minor repairs in a very timely manner. The house is filled with light from morning through evening. The house is decorated very nicely and we loved the open floor plan. The house was very clean and generally in good repair, though the second bathroom was pretty shabby. The location is fabulous. It's easy to get to Siesta Key by foot, bike or car. Great shopping nearby including two of our favorites: the Granary health food store and Simon's coffee shop. The street is fairly busy but it's still a pretty quiet neighborhood and the neighbors are nice. We would recommend this house!
