"When I first entered the villa, I said "Wow! This place is really nice." It was super-clean, recently remodeled, and has ultramodern appliances, a big living room and master bedroom, good WiFi and cable channels, 3 HD TVs and plenty of room. It's right across from the community center with a large well-heated swimming pool and gas BBQ grills. The service from the rental agent Mary was first rate and immediately responsive.
The location is perfect for all that Sarasota has to offer. It's close to the beaches and only about a 15 minute drive to Sarasota's cultural center with a concert hall, live theaters, world-class art museum and good restaurants. There's plenty to do in the immediate neighborhood, too, as it's 5 minutes from the mall with 12 movie screens. We went to Sarasota for some winter hiking, for which this villa is ideal. It is only 10 minutes from Oscar Scherer State Park and 15 from Myakka River State Park, which are great places to hike in the winter with well marked, dry, beautiful trails. After a day of hiking, we returned to the comfort and luxury of this modern spacious villa."

"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."

"A wonderful house in a beautiful lakeside setting. Although not a gated community this location has the look and feel of a very well maintained estate and is very peaceful. It is also convenient for visiting Sarasota as well as some beautiful nearby beaches. Barry and Sue are true professionals when it comes to leasing their home and have thought of everything in terms of equipment - right down to the Florida Snow shovels used for finding sharks teeth on the nearby beaches. The house is bright and beautifully furnished and Ted is on hand next door to attend to any issues during your stay. I would thoroughly recommend a stay at this property and certainly look forward to a return visit."
