"My husband and I were here for a week and had a fantastic experience. The location was perfect. Close to Publix and great restaurants a short drive away. Took a trip into Anna Maria Island and Sarasota during our stay and had great meals at the restaurants we visited but we were quite content to hang out and have dinner at our studio. Really liked Owens Fish Camp in Sarasota that was recommended by a bartender in a nice bar/restaurant in St. Armand's Circle. The Dry Dock had a beautiful view and excellent seafood. The highlight of our vacation was relaxing after dinner to watch the majestic sunsets. Great place to stay for couples for a romantic getaway or a family with small children. So convenient to walking out on the white sand and putting up an umbrella and chairs without trekking over dunes and walkways. We definitely plan to return. We were fortunate to meet the owner which made our stay there even more special. Very clean grounds and polite staff. Highly recommend staying here and hope we have friends join us next year at the Diplomat. Of course, would recommend couples and extended families inquire about other well-appointed units. We want ours all to ourselves!"

"The cottage was perfect for our needs-me and my two 'kids' (20's). My son said it was the 'quintessential beach house.' It was great to have a fenced yard for my service dog. Close enough to the beach to walk for stargazing and sunsets. Friendly neighborhood and very dog-friendly as well..."

"Our unit was wonderful, appreciated the modern kitchen which had everything we needed. Bedrooms a generous size, appreciated the ceiling fans and 2 bathrooms. The extra long balcony was pure bliss for reading and sunbathing and watching the sunsets, words can't really express how comfortable and happy we were! The unit was a perfect fit for our family of four.
The whole unit is so clean and well taken care, from the bathroom fixtures to the furniture to the TV amenities-a welcome home-away-from-home. The building itself had security: a nice touch. I only wish we could have stayed longer but easy to understand why it's so in demand. Thanks for sharing!"
