"This is the perfect place to stay if you want to experience all that Sarasota has to offer. It's on a quiet side street that's minutes away from Burns Court, with its one-of-a-kind restaurants, shops, and art movie theater. The historic Laurel Park residential district is less than a block away (great for walks), and the Towles Court arts community, bayfront park, Selby Gardens, and downtown -- with all of its cultural and fun activities -- are within a short walk. Access to major roads is a snap, too, and you have a reserved parking spot. The condo complex is small and beautifully maintained, and this unit is tastefully, comfortably furnished. The two spacious bedrooms have lots of closet space and their own bathrooms -- they are separated by a hallway that affords good privacy. The master bedroom overlooks a lovely pool and the Hudson Bayou, which is also visible from the kitchen. We felt well taken care of by Dan and Maureen, who provide many thoughtful extras, such as laundry soap and paper goods as well as amenities like beach chairs and towels. As the weather was cool this year, we spent a lot of outdoor reading time on the unit's two balconies rather than on the beach -- enjoying the beauty around us. Our small dog lved our stay as well; Sarasota is a pet-friendly city. Our neighbors in the complex were friendly and respectful. Our small dog loved our stay as well; he was comfortable in the condo, and Sarasota is a pet-friendly city. We felt fortunate to be there and plan to return next year!"

"We had a great 4 weeks in this condo. Loved sitting out on the balcony in the morning with a wonderfull view out over the lake? King sized bed was very comfortable and the full kitchen with large fridge freezer and icemaker was much appreciated. The location is excellent with a mall and grocery shopping close at hand yet only ten minutes to Siesta Key beach. Plenty parking on site, and if you want to eat out great variety of restaurants within a short drive."

"We recently returned from a wonderful week in Coral Cottage-Rear. This was our 2nd stay in one of the O'keefe's cottages and we enjoyed it as much as our first visit in Mangrove Cottage. Since I have been visiting Sarasota since my childhood in the 1940's, I found these cottages to be a home away from home as they are reminiscent of an earlier era. However, the charming decor is fresh and chic. We loved having our morning coffee or evening wine on the patio and large fenced-in yard. Being able to walk downtown and the marina made our visit stress-free. Since neither my husband or I are tech savvy, Jeff was very accommodating in coming over to instruct us in operating the TV remote. Also, for the first time in years, I did not wake up with an aching back...wonderful mattress!"

"If you want to stay in a home that makes you feel as though you are being pampered, i suggest you rent this spectacular Key West style home. The owner is amazing! Not only has she decorated her home with magnificent style, she has left NOTHING out when it comes to making guests feel spoiled!! The bed in the master bedroom is the most beautiful, comfortable bed you could ever hope to sleep in!! The view from every window to the outside of the home is like a thriving metropolis!!! There is even a remote control to change the color of the lighting in the pool in the evening!!! My husband and I spent our first Christmas there and loved every minute of it. Leaving felt like a punishment! The good news is we will be back in March! We highly recommend this home! It is close to everything Sarasota has to offer! St. Armand Circle, Downtown, the amazing Siesta Key Beaches and so many fabulous restaurants! Although you may not want to leave this beautiful home!!!!"
