  • Impressive house

    "Brenda/Peter are very easy to work with making the whole experience a much better value. From inquiring to closing the deal to emailing during the vacation to checking out, everything was very smooth and they were very responsive! Short and to the point, I will list out all of the pros and cons! Pros: - This house beat everyone's expectation, the pictures do not do it justice, AT ALL!! - The sound system was a huge bonus, they have it hooked up to indoor and outdoor speakers with a box to control the speakers. This was great for when we wanted it quiet inside the house but music playing outside. Every house needs this! - Clean, plenty of towels, spacious. It made the stay very entertaining Cons: - Neighbor. On our first night we were confronted with a drunk neighbor who decided to walk in through the front door of the house, with a lit cigarette and beer in hand to yell at us about how loud we were. It was 7:30pm on a Thursday. You could barely hear the music from the other end of the yard. Simply rude and disrespectful. In return we get woken up at 6am from him doing construction on his house. The next day his wife/girlfriend yelled at us for parking in the street, in front of her house. Off of her grass, not blocking the driveway at all, yet she decided to cause a scene and threatened to call the cops on us if we didn't move it. Also their dog likes to run around the neighborhood in the morning without a leash. All morning long the owner is chasing his dog around.. - Not really a con, but the hot tub isn't quite a hot tub, more or less a jacuzzi, so it is pool water temperature with some jets - WiFi is very weak, no matter where you are in the house, the connection was very slow or weak We are a group of young adults that had no intentions on making this a party house, if it wasn't for the neighbor, I would rate it 5/5"

  • Very pleasant

    "The owners were excellent to deal with. The house was fairly well equipped. It had everything I needed except a full size iron or iron board. I realize most people wouldn't need one but I tend to want to iron everything. There was a travel iron. The pool area was nice and we were happy to have the bar-b-que. The house is very spacious and it is in a great location. Very close to Siesta Beach."

  • Immaculate clean and accommodating home and quiet neighborhood

    "The house was immaculately clean and very accommodating. The neighborhood is very quiet and like the house well maintained. The location is close to all the amenities of beautiful Sarasota. Siesta Key is about 5 miles from the house and probably the finest beach in the United States.We love spring training baseball and you are close to several spring training facilities . The Orioles are in Sarasota and the Pirates are a short ride to Bradenton. Shopping is abundant from outlet malls to St Armand Circle and the more upscale shopping. And Venice , Fl is a short drive with additional beach and shopping available. But the most important thing is the attention and response from the property management that is superior to any that I've experienced vacationing in Florida. They respond quickly and resolved any issues that we had. We would recommend this property to our closest friends and family."

  • Half Moon South

    "Our family gathered here this March, when the weather up North was wicked. We had a lovely week at Half Moon.....close to shopping, dining, Starbucks, and the best beach in the world, Siesta Key. It was especially lovely to soak in the hot tub in the evening. Everyone enjoyed their stay and would highly recommend this place."
