  • Beautiful Setting, Beautiful Home, Beautiful Hostess, Beautiful Time!

    "We stay in lots of vacations rentals & #31998 was way beyond our expectations!! My husband, kitten & I had a fine time in this wonderful location. We were pleasantly surprised by the beautiful restored barn door dining table (seats 8) and large kitchen island overlooking the DR & LR & seating 3 comfortably. Lots of natural light in this cheerful area. The front porch is great with a table for 4 & the back yard area with grill is terrific. The house is beautifully appointed and the kitchen has all the utensils & equipment needed to prepare a meal any "foodie" would be proud of. The entire house was ABSOLUTELY SPOTLESS. We used one BR as a dressing room & did not use the bed but it felt comfortable & the linens were great. Our bed was extremely comfortable. There are all kinds of condiments in the kitchen as well as useful soaps, shampoos & other goodies for your use in the bathrooms. A block away from this little jewel of a house is the Lido Beach Resort with an excellent Penthouse Restaurant facing the Bay & the beautiful lights of Bradenton were Fantastic..excellent meal & service! Also 1 block from the house in this pleasant neighborhood is the large Lido Beach pool (a very tiny use fee), & the excellent little Outdoor Grill. The Beachfront in Feb. was not overcrowded, and umbrellas & chairs can be rented. The restrooms are clean & there is a little shop to buy beach necessities. In the pool & exterior Grill area, there are large picnic tables for public use. Our little group (2 couples) had a "Baked Bean Cook Off". We recruited 3 judges in the Grill area. Spouses of the judges joined in on the fun and we had other visitors from across the US come over to visit with us. Everyone is friendly & super cordial on Lido Beach & the immediate neighborhood of the house. Of course the selection of fine cuisine at St. Armands Circle was enjoyed immensely by us and our WI "dayguests" staying nearby. Shopping at St. Armands is fantastic too. We cannot say enough about our gracious hostess. The little button on the garbage disposal stuck momentarily and when we returned from lunch, the plumber was there to fix this minor problem. Nancy even has an emergency Veterinarian info posted on the fridge--so thoughtful. We recommend this property without reservation. It's a great value in the BEST location. We can't wait to go back! We know you will feel the same way as you begin planning your visit, as well as when the visit is over. GREAT PLACE GREAT KARMA!!!"

  • Great rental house in Sarasota

    "This was my third time renting a vacation rental on VRBO and I was not disappointed! The spacious house was very clean and had 3 nice sized bedrooms with big closets. I loved the convenience of a washer and dryer in the house so that I did not have to pack a ton of clothes since we were coming from many states away. The house has a nice back deck which we grilled out on several nights. My son loved the small bridge in the back yard. The neighborhood was pretty quiet and it really was a perfect location. It was just a short 10 minute drive to both Siesta and Turtle beaches which we visited. I loved that the rental house was so close to a mian road that provided an abundance of grocery stores, restaurants and fast food places, shops and playgrounds. We visited the Aquarium and the Jungle Gardens while we were there as well and both were just a short 15 minute drive or so and were very easy to find since you are so close to some of the main roads. The owners were great to work with and answered all of my questions quickly! They were very easy to work with and I liked the fact that they lived in the Sarasota area in case we needed something. I would highly recommend this house if you are staying in the Sarasota location! The house is very spacious and the location is just perfect if you are wanting to be close to all of the attractions with just a short drive in the car."

  • 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!"

  • supercalifragilisticexpialidocious

    "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."
