"My wife and I spent a whole month at this villa. We didn't know what to pack and it turns out we didn't need anything but our clothes and toiletries. The house was stocked with everything you could imagine. The TV in the living room was recently upgraded and very nice. We loved the pass through "nook" from the kitchen to the dining area. All the cooking utensils you could imagine. The washer and dryer are excellent. The beds were quite comfortable. Ceiling fans in every room kept the inside quite cool. Thermostat was easy to use as was the door lock to the front door. Tons of closet space with hangers! The garage was stocked well, also. Golf clubs, tennis rackets, snorkeling gear, soccer ball, beach chairs, beach umbrella, cooler, swim noodles, tools, windshield washer fluid and a propane grill. It is close to the pool which is heated to about 87F. It is within walking distance to the grocery store and the largest mall in Sarasota.The location is quiet even though the mall is real close. We are not beach people so being away from the beach was no problem for us. If you like the beach, it is about 5 miles away. It is only about 4 miles from the Legacy Trail, if you like to bike or walk without cars. We were so pleased we have booked it for 2016!"

"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"

"In our first time in Sarasota, we found this wonderful home in which to explore Sarasota. The home was well equipped with everything we needed; the rooms were large enough to make it a very comfortable stay. The location next to the Ringling Museum and the New College, where there were numerous evening lectures and programs were a real plus. Daily walking in the neighborhood and ease of driving to downtown, or to beaches on Lido and Siesta Key, shopping on St. Armands Key, trips to Bradenton, Anna Maria Island and many other destinations made this a very nice location. We would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a single family property in a great neighborhood."
