  • Beautiful Villa

    "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."

  • Picture Perfect

    "My husband, dog and I stayed at this house for the month of January 2015. The house is exactly as pictured, no surprises. It is located exactly 1.1 miles from Crescent Beach on Siesta Key, an easy walk or bike ride to that fabulous sand. Grocery shopping, Bed Bath and Beyond, Stein Mart and several others plus restaurants are about a mile south on Tamiami Trail in a nice mall. The location is perfect, close to everything but quiet and very private. The kitchen is great, extremely well equipped. Bedrooms and closets are very generous, particularly the master. For morning coffee and evening cocktails you can't beat the lanai. The large yard is perfect for children and pets and well maintained. All in all a bright, comfortable, welcoming home. The owner and property manager are both terrific and made our stay one of the best we have had."
