  • Wonderful Home, Wonderful Setting

    "Our stay was February and March of 2014. This is our second season here. We were one of the first to rent and right from the 1st day we stepped into the home we fell in love with it. The pictures on the web site don't truly tell the entire picture. It is decorated so tastefully and comfortably. The homeowners have maintained the property impeccably and each year have improved and updated it. We so enjoy the enclosed pool and the early morning sun in the lani makes for a cheerful place to start the day with breakfast. We enjoy the beaches and culture of the Sarasota area and of course the golfing which is right across the street from the home. Just the perfect place to spend as we do, two months or just a week. We are so looking forward to our next stay and truly call this home "Our Home Away From Home". Thank you Jimmy and Ita for making our stay so enjoyable."

  • A gem of a find!

    "Everything about house -- from the owner to the decor to the location -- was delightful. The home was so tastefully renovated and so comfortably furnished, it added to relaxed feel of our week in paradise. With a great kitchen to cook in and inviting, family sized farm table to dine on, we actually took a night off from the amazing local restaurants and enjoyed eating at home. The best surprise of all was the pavilion at the beach, complete with amazing food (a huge lobster roll for $8) a beautiful pool and chair/umbrella rentals. I'm so glad we decided not to stay at a resort... because all the comforts of a resort stay at this house... and we got to bring our dogs! We will positively be back."

  • Quiet neighborhood, home away from home

    "This was the second summer we rented this beautiful home. The location and the house are perfect!! You don't need to bring anything but clothes-this house has everything you could ever need. We love the huge fenced-in backyard to play ball with our dogs and we especially enjoy riding our bikes to the Siesta Key beaches, the Siesta Key village and even to Publix. The neighborhood is quiet and very family friendly and close to the beach, downtown Sarasota, Venice and many restaurants. Highly recommended for a cozy, relaxing vacation."

  • exploring Sarasota's restaurants, beaches, and neighborhoods

    "My wife and I had a great time at Maureen and Patrick's rental home for a week. The description of the location and the property were highly accurate as were the photos which illustrated the rental's appearance and amenities. Maureen was very kind and thoughtful in greeting us and showing us around the beautiful gardens and sitting areas in the backyard. She even pointed out an owl sitting quietly in a palm tree outside the master bedroom. The property was exceptionally clean and well maintained. We utilized the kitchen area for breakfast and lunch and had dinner at a number of excellent restaurants in Sarasota suggested by Maureen. Everything that we needed was present in the kitchen including a blender. We also utilized a number of appliances in the kitchen and the laundry area, and each of them worked flawlessly. When my wife had some difficulty getting a yoga CD to play on the TV, Patrick kindly came over a showed her what needed to be done. Both Maureen and Patrick are very friendly and approachable individuals who answered each of our questions thoroughly and guided us to the nearby Publix grocery store and other shopping areas as well as interesting places such as Burns Court and other quaint neighborhoods. The owners even provided maps that were excellent guides for us in navigating many areas of Sarasota. I would highly recommend this property to a friend or relative without reservation, and we hope to return soon."
