"We stayed in the house in the summer of 2015 and loved every minute of it! From the beautiful, tropical decor to the spacious bedrooms and kitchen, the gorgeous (heated!) pool and grounds and all the details big and small that the owners have taken care of to their utmost. Anything you need for a great family vacation is here, including a BBQ grill, floats for the pool, lounge chairs, an overwhelming assortment of dishes and pots, towels, linen and there's wifi as well with great reception anywhere in the house. The outdoor patio with table and chairs as well as the lanai area by the pool with plenty of seating gives you a choice of where you can choose to relax! Indoors as well there are two living areas with comfortable seating and floor space for teh kids to play as well. In a nutshell: a perfect vacation home!"

"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 have always wanted to stay in a cottage near the beach and finally made the decision to with this trip to Lido Key. I am so in love I don't want to go home!! I am writing this review on my last day. The screened in porch is to die for! Don't worry if it is hot outside there are to industrial sized fans (that aren't loud) to keep the breeze moving enabling you to enjoy the screened porch anytime of day. The kitchen is well stocked, the washer and dryer work great and are easy to use. There are beach chairs and beach towels for the short walk or ride to Lido Key beach. The living room has a really comfy sofa and two recliners that are electric and very comfortable!!! The beds are covered in 100% cotton linens and the mattresses are divine!! Keep in mind this is a cottage and has some uneven floors and rustic looks about it but that is what gives it the wonderful character!! I have never stayed in the same place twice but my mother and I are already looking to rebook this property in the fall. The cleaning crew had the place spotless when we arrived better than many 4 stars resorts I have stayed in. They left their signature cards on the beds, toilets and other parts of the house so that you were assured that cleaned all surfaces!! I met Dallas at Florida Vacation Connection because of an issue with the TV (it had come unplugged) and she came out on her Saturday evening to resolve the problem. She is a real asset to the management company and very easy to deal with! I can't wait to return and will be sad to go tomorrow!"

"We (two little Familys) were very happy with our stay at the lovely Palmhouse. Enough space for everyone, nice location (close to everything--> Center, Beaches, Restaurants, Activities) and we really enjoyed our stay there. The Kids were exhausted with the Pool (clean & groomed) and we had great evenings with Barbecues and just relaxed outside sitting in this lovely Garden!
Everything was clean, very comfy, groomed and lots of extras which are not listed here...and not to forget, very stylish and lovingly furnished (we loved the yellow spots!!)
Mike was always available and very supportive!
Thanks, and we hope to be back anytime!"
