Recent Sarasota reviews

  • Comfortable and clean home with everything necessary for a wonderful vacation

    "The Palmhouse was a wonderful base for our Sarasota holiday. We were six in total including my husband, our two young children and my parents. The house was very comfortable and clean with plenty of room for us all. The kitchen was very well equipped, lots of seating in the living room, spacious dining table, three comfortable beds and great powerful shower in the main bathroom. The pool, garden and deck area were lovely. The location is great too, just a few minutes south of downtown and near lots of attractions. We enjoyed our holiday very much!"

  • Perfect, beautiful retreat!

    "This home is gorgeous, the neighborhood is lovely, and the views are incredible! Our biggest problem was deciding whether to enjoy the magnificent view from the front of the house or the wonderful, totally private HUGE back yard with the pool! The home is amazing: the appliances are state of the art, the furnishings are fabulous, and it has EVERYTHING. Every amenity you could want is right at your fingertips. The owner has gone all-out to make this property GREAT. We stayed for 3 weeks and hated to leave. This is a marvelous vacation home. You'll love it!"

    "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!!!!"

  • Experienced Luxury in Immaculate Historical Home

    "Finally, our family had the opportunity to experience a very special, unique place to stay. We must travel frequently and tire of the cookie cutter hotel rooms. Spending several days as a guest in the Alfred Ringling home (as in "Ringling Bros. & Barnum & Bailey Circus) was a treat we jumped at . . . and were not disappointed. The home appears small and ordinary from the outside, but looks are deceiving. Upon walking through the front door, it was like watching Mary Poppins pull a feature magazine spread from Architectural Digest out of her carpet bag. Pure luxury and every amenity provided. Even though this historic home will be 100 years old in 2018, it is clear that the owners and caretakers have been careful to preserve the unique architectural detail of the interiors while updating the large kitchen and multiple baths. Work is still being done to preserve the exterior of the home and there was evidence of updated landscaping in progress along with new tropical trees and plants which will probably look gorgeous upon turning in the drive way a few years down the road. But the beautiful pool in the back of the Ringling home more than made up for the in-progress updates on the street side. The pool, surrounded by a variety of tropical plantings, anchors the backyard and every door and window on the privately enclosed backside of the home drinks in a view of that oasis from the heat. Hope we can get back this way again. It will be a pleasure to watch our children and grandchildren splash in the pool while I enjoy a lovely glass of wine sitting in the great room- and "great room" is an understatement. S. Lamm North Carolina Just have to figure an excuse to get back to Sarasota again."
