"We love this house, neighborhood, the bubbly and efficient property manager and responsive owner. We stayed for 2 weeks in April and the whole month of December in 2014. The house is very comfortable, completely equipped and much better looking in real life than in the photos. The yard is perfect for our dogs and the neighborhood a friendly place to trot them around. The neighborhood doubles as a bird sanctuary; beautiful beautiful birds sing and play. In December a Bald Eagle stopped by. This is a really great home, welcoming in every way, a definite must stay."

"My family and I had a lovely visit in your clean, quiet home. This bungalow is the perfect size, updated, cozy, so quiet, and sunny. My 1 year old loved all the floor space to run around, and spent a lot of time exploring the front & back yard spaces and walkways.
We loved the convenience to downtown (5 mins) and to Lido Beach (10 mins) and Siesta Key Besch (15 mins). It's 2 mins to Publix grocery store too.
Thanks for the beach towels, umbrellas, and sand toys. What a nice treat.
The only thing we didn't like was the very squeaky bed in the master bedroom. The metal frame made a loud sound when getting in and out of bed and rolling over.
We would stay here again for sure!"

"My wife and I spent 30 days in April at this wonderful home. If you follow reviews, you will see by our last review of this property that there is nothing more we can add that hasn't already been said, except how sorry we were the day we locked the door to this heavenly home behind us !!!"

"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."
