"The owner communicated with us right away and was available for any of my questions. Our group consisted of 5 adults and 3 grand kids. Our son arrived on the last three days. The location and quiet neighborhood were awesome. The home provided privacy and enjoyable atmosphere for our stay. The kids enjoyed swimming in the pool and we each cool beverages as we watched them play. It was just a short walk to Lido Beach, stores and restaurants on St. Armand Circle. There were sunsets that will take your breath away. My husband and I went for early morning walks to St. Armand Circle and Lido Beach. We all went to Lido Beach during early evenings when it was a little cooler and stayed for hours. This was the most relaxed vacation that we've had and it had to do with the large house and location. We hope to rent again next year."

First time my family has given me hugs for booking a vacation rental!
"You would be perfectly happy just sitting in the main living area looking through the wall of glass into the pool area watching the sky through the palm trees. But there is so much more! Outside you can enjoy a refreshing dip in the lap pool or relax in the hot tub. Inside, the kitchen is very well equipped for those wanting to cook (we found a cast iron skillet, micro plane, and potato ricer as well as a variety of coffee making options). The downstairs media room is a great space for watching movies without disturbing anyone in the rest of the house. The private beach is just a short bicycle ride away or you can walk there pulling the provided wagon with beach umbrella and chairs. The home is in a great location for walking or riding to Mote Aquarium and St. Armands Circle as well as other Sarasota sights.
My family has been vacationing on Longboat Key for over 20 years and we were very happy to find this HomeAway property for a change from our usual timeshare stay. As a HomeAway renter (much like for a timeshare) the condition of the property is somewhat subject to how the prior occupants left it. We did have some minor issues with damp linens and wet dishes which Giovanni was made aware of and has promised to address. Overall, I would not hesitate to rent here again and would highly recommend it for anyone else looking to stay in the Sarasota area."

"I recently stayed in one of Julie's 2 bedrooms units. Julie is very easy to work with and thinks of everything before your arrival. The place is so clean! Plus it is very cozy and I loved the furnishings. We had a screened in porch which was nice so the dog could run in and out of the house. We also enjoyed sitting out there. The rental is so close to the beach and we would walk over every day to swim in the ocean. I loved the neighborhood very quiet and nice houses up and down the street. Lido key was a nice find for us. We had never stayed in Lido Key and loved how close it is to the beach and also the restaurants and shops in St. Armands circle. Julie also has beach chairs, towels, and umbrellas for a day at the beach. We had such a nice vacation. I highly recommend this place."
