"We were so very happy with this property Our only regret is we didn't stay longer! Immediately we were very impressed with the property - pictures did not do it justice. Its so roomy. Everything was in top shape and extremely clean and well cared for. The owner was above&beyond helpful, easy to work with- from booking to checkout and everything in between. Before we arrived we received the most helpful email detailing all the things in the house we would need to know with photographs It made planning for the trip easy and made us feel at home right away since there was no "figuring it all out' process when we checked in after a long day of travel. That's huge for me. Even things in the house are clearly labeled so you feel right at home right away.
We loved the pool and used it several times a day. It was perfect for the 2 of us to enjoy the sun and float away the day. The entire home was nice- but the pool made this perfect.
We loved how large the master bedroom was with a huge walk in closet and large bathroom. Our only slight negative is the shower/tub in the master sits quite high but is not deep so you have to step up quite high Because I wear contacts (not in shower) and am quite short I didn't feel safe stepping up and down that high - but it was no worries at all we just used the other full bathroom which actually worked well since you could enter directly from the pool It worked well for us.
We cooked in nearly every night and found the kitchen to be well stocked You can tell the owners take a lot of pride in the home. We loved the location - very easy to get to Siesta Key, shopping, grocery stores, but yet it felt tucked away and quiet Best of both worlds.
It was quite warm while we were there - found AC ceiling fans and a dehumidifier feature kept the house very comfortable.
The bedrooms are on complete opposite sides of the home and there is a pocket door that you can close from living room so although the 2nd bedroom does not have direct access to the full bath- you could close for privacy making this a great property great to share with another couple etc
We loved the library and it made for a cozy area to relax each night.
Loved having the full garage it kept the car cool and safe and because it leads right into the kitchen it was easy to unload.
We almost didn't want to share so we can keep it as our secret- but the owners deserves positive notes it was so great Minutes into being there we already wanted to plan to return"

"We stayed at the Villa for the second time. It was great last year and great again this year. Village Des Pins is a beautiful complex and so quiet. We couldn't wait to come back again this year. Everyone is so friendly @ the pool & everywhere else we went. The villa is clean & spacious. We feel right at home. It has everything you need. The owners sent an email to welcome us on the first day and Mary Williams was very helpful. We will definately be back again!"

"I can't praise this condo and the owner enough, it was a fabulously appointed place to spend 12 glorious days and nights in sunny Lakewood Ranch Sarasota. I have been to Sarasota 12 times now and this is by far the best condo I have stayed in, and the view while sitting on the porch having breakfast every morning will live with us for years to come. The condo itself is spotlessly clean and has very comfortable beds and has everything you will ever need and more, and the owner Kathy is always a phone call away and is more than willing to help if there is any problems. The condo is situated in a very peaceful location on Lakewood Ranch and the pool area is large and relaxing. We are already looking at flights for next year and hopefully we can return here again if the condo is available. Highly recommended."

"Great water views! First floor easily accessible. Everything you need is here, complete kitchen, comfort height toilets, and beds. Nice quiet location but close to beaches, shopping centers, and restaurants. We enjoy the book stores near by us (Barnes and Noble is the best on Tamiami Trail). Mayaka State park is easy to get to and check out the alligators, trails, boat tours. We enjoyed the Wallenda circus acts, and a boat tour with captain Jack out on Sarasota bay to view Dolphins. Coquina beach ,trail and shaded picnic area is one of our favorite places go early to avoid traffic and get your spot. Of course the closest beach Siesta key is a must to check out and additional parking and new facilities are almost completed.
Farmers market at nearby Philipi park on Tamiami is held every Wed. We will be back next year, have had a wonderful time. Thanks for sharing your condo with us."
