"The house was beautiful, well appointed and so comfortable. It felt like home! Loved the pool after a hot day at the beach, it was so relaxing. Was able to walk to shopping and very good restaurants ( Hurricane Grill was my favorite). Can't wait for a return trip for an anniversary!! Thank you so much!"

If you do not love this place........Check you have a pulse!!!
"One could wax lyrically forever about this home and it`s location within the Tara community.
There could be no better recommendation than to answer "YES IN A HEARTBEAT" to the question of would you like to come back here.
I would like to say we took advantage of the numerous cultural attractions the area has to offer, alas relaxation was the number one priority on this occasion, and here........that was easy. We did however take a couple of trips to St Armands Circle in Sarasota. A very upmarket area for shops and restaurants..........it`s Fabulous.
Being English, we quite like our pub culture. Again this proved to be a perfect location, with two (maybe more) pubs within a five minute walk.......Gecko & Bogeys, both friendly and welcoming.
Throw in a quality golf course into that mix, and Tara is a quality golf course. Then for us Utopia has been attained.
In conclusion the owners, Pauline and Stu could not have been more attentive, and were a pleasure to deal with."

Great house. Great location. Home away from home !
"The house is located in a very quite neighborhood and we felt super comfortable right away. It was very clean and extremely spacious. Great location to the beach and so close to shops as well. The house was well equipped and the pool was just warm and wonderful. The house really met and exceeded all our expectations. Hope to book next year if we are lucky enough."

"Our party of 10 adults and 3 children fit comfortably in this lovely home.Plenty of space so there is no need to trip over each other. We chose not to rent a car and were able to easily hop public transportation at the end of the road and ride daily to Anna Maria Island and beaches/restaurants/stores galore. Publix is within walking distance/short cab ride.The pool at the house is large, tennis courts/pool table extra fun. The house is clean. Renting long distance I always worry about legitimacy and get worried about getting contracts in hand immediately, directions, etc. Be aware Gavin has a time frame that he operates within. But he comes through as promised. And we had FABULOUS weather. So much better than the cold winter in Maine."
