"When I first entered the villa, I said "Wow! This place is really nice." It was super-clean, recently remodeled, and has ultramodern appliances, a big living room and master bedroom, good WiFi and cable channels, 3 HD TVs and plenty of room. It's right across from the community center with a large well-heated swimming pool and gas BBQ grills. The service from the rental agent Mary was first rate and immediately responsive.
The location is perfect for all that Sarasota has to offer. It's close to the beaches and only about a 15 minute drive to Sarasota's cultural center with a concert hall, live theaters, world-class art museum and good restaurants. There's plenty to do in the immediate neighborhood, too, as it's 5 minutes from the mall with 12 movie screens. We went to Sarasota for some winter hiking, for which this villa is ideal. It is only 10 minutes from Oscar Scherer State Park and 15 from Myakka River State Park, which are great places to hike in the winter with well marked, dry, beautiful trails. After a day of hiking, we returned to the comfort and luxury of this modern spacious villa."

"The home had absolutely everything needed for our stay including a wonderful backyard for my miniature dachshund! Very convenient and comfortable. Would highly recommend it and the owner was extremely personable and responsive. You can't go wrong renting this home."

"We have been spending holidays in Sarasota for the past 23 years and during this time have stayed in a variety of rental properties. The last two years we have stayed in Barry and Sue's beautiful rental in Osprey and really feel as though we have found our "home from home". They have, literally, provided everything a family would need to make their stay truly memorable. From the moment you enter the property you just know you are going to have the most enjoyable, relaxing holiday which you will never want to end. Everything in the villa, from the super comfy beds to the leather sofas and large screen TV's will not disappoint and the kitchen has every appliance you would ever need. The villa has a lovely pool/spa area which overlooks a tranquil lake and it is just so pleasant to sit out, at whatever time of day, soaking up the ambiance. There is also a BBQ if you want to cook outdoors. The villa is on a very quiet residential estate and is in the perfect location to enjoy local restaurants/shops, it is only a short drive to beautiful beaches and Siesta Key ( which is our all time favourite ) is easily accessible. Barry and Sue have even provided beach umbrellas/chairs etc for guests to use, which are an added bonus when in the intense Florida heat. Bikes are also available for guests to use and there are plenty of cycle paths to explore the natural habitat. As we now live in Australia ( originally from the UK ), it is a very long journey for us but we wouldn't have been doing it for so long if we hadn't fallen in love with Florida, the lifestyle and we can now add Barry and Sue's home to our list. We are now counting down the weeks to our next trip and cannot wait to see the improvements, we know, Barry and Sue have made to the villa."
