"This has been my fifth year at Casa del Mar and like a fine wine, it just gets better with age. I could go on and on about the beach and the Gulf of Mexico, but I think I will let the attached picture do the talking for me. So that leaves me to describe the accommodations. This will be my third different condo, and each one is unique within itself. The layout of each condo is a bit different depending on whether you are on the ground floor, second floor, end or middle. My unit had a beautifully vaulted ceiling making the condo seem comfortably spacious. Each unit is uniquely decorated, so it makes for great adventure when you change units each year.
I have been going to Sarasota for the past thirty years and never run out of things to see or do. The entire area is incredible, and if you are adventurous Tampa, Clearwater, and St. Petersburg are only an hour away.
I always read the previously posted reviews for the year, curious as to what people might complain about since I never can find fault with Casa. It always seems as though the people complaining have something that is broken or in need of repair, but then wait until they check out to bring it to the staff's attention. Most often people don't say anything prior to leaving, which then creates the problem for the next guest. When I went to take my shower, the tub drained very slowly. I told the staff and within ten minutes their maintenance person was there and fixed the problem. While Casa del Mar is as close to perfection as it gets, there will always be minor exceptions, but the difference in Casa and other places I have stayed, is how these exceptions are handled. The resort is heaven on earth and the staff are the angels. Try it, you'll love it."

"This is the 2nd time we have stayed at this rental. Last time we were a family of 3 in 2012, but have since grown to a family of 4. This house is sheer perfection for a family with young children. The house comes equipped with highchair and pack-n-play, which lessens our travel load greatly. Everything that you could possibly need for a relaxing week's stay is there. The bedrooms are cozy, yet spacious. We spent most days and nights on the back deck which has since been screened in. The pool was amazing and even had a safety gate that was very easy to assemble (well, easy to watch my husband do it :) ). The beach is a super short car ride away. We even walked to it a few times. The owners provide any and every beach accessory you could need. The location for the house is also one of my favorite things. In the morning we would walk by the bay and talk to the other renters who would fill us in on things like "Dog-Thirty" and other local gatherings. Just a short drive to Sarasota or Anna Maria island for Ice cream at Joe's and to watch the sun set. We even drove to Disney World for a day because it is only a 2 hour drive away. As much as I would like to keep this house as a secret gem tucked away in paradise - I want to spread the love so as they will keep renting it out! Thanks again and we hope to be back again next year."

"My family -3 adults and one baby- just loved this town home!. The home was very clean and spacious. It had an updated kitchen, floors, and bathrooms. It was very well maintained. We had looked at other houses, too and liked this best. We will definitely come back again

"An attractive and lovingly maintained bungalow with two small and Spartan bedrooms but exceptionally spacious and comfortable master bedroom and large living area and kitchen. It is generously stocked with linens and bath and beach towels and other conveniences. Both bathrooms have been updated and everything works, is spotlessly clean and smells fresh."
