"My family and I had a lovely visit in your clean, quiet home. This bungalow is the perfect size, updated, cozy, so quiet, and sunny. My 1 year old loved all the floor space to run around, and spent a lot of time exploring the front & back yard spaces and walkways.
We loved the convenience to downtown (5 mins) and to Lido Beach (10 mins) and Siesta Key Besch (15 mins). It's 2 mins to Publix grocery store too.
Thanks for the beach towels, umbrellas, and sand toys. What a nice treat.
The only thing we didn't like was the very squeaky bed in the master bedroom. The metal frame made a loud sound when getting in and out of bed and rolling over.
We would stay here again for sure!"

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."

"This is our second year at this beautiful home. We love the closeness to the beach and the pool and lanai area. This home is fully, and I mean FULLY, equipped with anything you may need on your stay. Nice having a washer and dryer on the premises. So close to any store or restaurant that you can think of. The home is located on a very quiet street. We enjoyed walking the neighborhood. I would highly recommend you consider this rental if you are thinking of a vacation in Sarasota. My communication with the owner on planning our trip has always been very quick with answers to any questions you may have. Can't wait to return. We are already planning our trip for next year!:)"

"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Lakewood Ranch condo. Kathy was extremely helpful during the inquiry and booking process. She was very accommodating. The condo was beautiful and just as pictured in the ad. We enjoyed walking around the lake and seeing the wildlife. The pool was very nice with plenty of lounge chairs and tables with umbrellas. The kitchen was well equipped. The beds were comfortable and the closets were awesome. I would most definitely stay at this property again. Thank you Kathy for everything!!!!"
