Recent Sarasota reviews

  • Old charm Sarasota

    "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!"

  • Honeymoon

    "We used this home for our August honeymoon this year. We are from NC and wanted to stay in Florida. After research, I found Siesta Key and that's what lured is here. This location was close enough to everything, beaches, restaurants, shopping etc. The home was enough room for us and our two dogs who enjoyed the fenced in yard. The home was very clean upon arrival with roses and champagne waiting for us "thank you!!". I would recommend this home for a stay in Sarasota. The only thing negative and I'm not familiar with the area, Indian beach is misleading. T was stated just a couple blocks away from Indian beach sapphire shores. This is not a beach that you would back the beach bag and stay the afternoon. Lovely to walk by but for swimming and beaching you have to drive 10 minutes to get to the popular beaches. Which isn't a problem. Next time I would've just stayed somewhere a little closer for a beach trip. Overall lovely and we enjoyed our stay! Sorry for the late review."

  • Good owners

    "We stayed here for three months, January February March 2015. The first impression we had was spacious, open, bright, airy, clean and neat. The kitchen was sunny and well equipped. The entire house is pretty well stocked with cleaning supplies, light bulbs, extension cords... everything we needed was there. I think because the owners sometimes stay there, they KNOW what it needs. Dorothy is the person we talked with. She is very nice and kind, and seems to respond to emails instantly. The owners have some kind of insurance on the rental so if anything goes wrong with plumbing or appliances, a repair person can be there the next day. The beds and all the furniture in the house are comfortable. The house is nicely decorated. There’s lots of storage space both in closets and in the garage. The neighbors on either side are friendly, but also respect your privacy. There is a big, fenced backyard with a grill and a tented patio with table and chairs to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning. One of the neighbors serves as a caretaker, too. He helps out when problems occur. If you like to bus, there are two bus routes with bus stops just 2 blocks away. If you like to walk to get your groceries, a Neighborhood Walmart, Publix, and Big Lots are just a 15 minute walk. If you like to walk for exercise, nearby neighborhoods are quiet, well kept, and open. Siesta Beach and Lido Key are about 20 minutes driving. Downtown Sarasota with a zillion restaurants is about 15 minutes away, with free parking. Or, there are four pizza places and a new hot dog stand 5 minutes walking distance from your front door!"

  • FROM ONE PARADISE TO ANOTHER

    "We live on Martha's Vineyard most of the year but traveled to this beautiful villa in an amazing subdivision of Sarasota. From the very fine and comfortable amenities of the villa to all that the area has for dining and entertainment, it is truly a Paradise. The community pool is across the street and the location of the villa is a short drive to the best of Sarasota.The owners were extremely helpful in making our stay memorable. We would highly recommend this rental."
