  • 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!"

  • The Perfect Villa

    "We Have stayed at this property on 3 occasions, each time our visit has been everything & more that we could have wished for. Every room is beautifully furnished. The home is maintained, decorated and equipped to a very high standard. The owners Barry & Sue have thought of everything to make guests feel at home. The beautiful pool area is amazing and looks out onto a lovely lake and we feel would put some hotel pool areas to shame. We have found it to be in an ideal location, very convenient for beaches (Nokomis one of our favourites in Sarasota) shops and eateries. We have loved every moment of staying here and never want to leave."

  • Great short-term stay!

    "My father, children and I stayed at Maureen and Patrick's beautiful vacation rental for two nights. Everything we needed was provided and the hosts were completely accommodating. It is hard to find a house rental for less than five days in the Sarasota area. I was thrilled to be able to find such a great home with a beautiful yard. I highly recommend this home!"

    "If you want to stay in a home that makes you feel as though you are being pampered, i suggest you rent this spectacular Key West style home. The owner is amazing! Not only has she decorated her home with magnificent style, she has left NOTHING out when it comes to making guests feel spoiled!! The bed in the master bedroom is the most beautiful, comfortable bed you could ever hope to sleep in!! The view from every window to the outside of the home is like a thriving metropolis!!! There is even a remote control to change the color of the lighting in the pool in the evening!!! My husband and I spent our first Christmas there and loved every minute of it. Leaving felt like a punishment! The good news is we will be back in March! We highly recommend this home! It is close to everything Sarasota has to offer! St. Armand Circle, Downtown, the amazing Siesta Key Beaches and so many fabulous restaurants! Although you may not want to leave this beautiful home!!!!"
