Recent Sarasota reviews

  • Home from Home

    "The property was extremely well equipped, comfortable and clean. Like a previous reviewer we were a family of six with two grandparents, two parents and two children and we took the reviewer's advice and slept on the other side of the house to the grandchildren - great idea as we were unable to hear the grandchildren rising early and they weren't able to hear our noises! It was very hot whilst we were there and the pool was a wonderful refuge. There were lots of pool toys including a lilo and rubber rings, snorkel and goggles so the children were extremely happy. The kitchen is extremely well equipped and there wasn't anything missing that we needed. The toaster played up on the first day but the owner replaced it immediately. The house is located in a quiet residential road with all amenities within a few minutes drive. It is spacious and comfortable and we hope to return next year."

  • 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."

  • Honeymoon

    "We used this home for our August honeymoon this year. We are from NC and wanted to stay in Florida. After research, I found Siesta Key and that's what lured is here. This location was close enough to everything, beaches, restaurants, shopping etc. The home was enough room for us and our two dogs who enjoyed the fenced in yard. The home was very clean upon arrival with roses and champagne waiting for us "thank you!!". I would recommend this home for a stay in Sarasota. The only thing negative and I'm not familiar with the area, Indian beach is misleading. T was stated just a couple blocks away from Indian beach sapphire shores. This is not a beach that you would back the beach bag and stay the afternoon. Lovely to walk by but for swimming and beaching you have to drive 10 minutes to get to the popular beaches. Which isn't a problem. Next time I would've just stayed somewhere a little closer for a beach trip. Overall lovely and we enjoyed our stay! Sorry for the late review."

  • January retreat

    "In our first time in Sarasota, we found this wonderful home in which to explore Sarasota. The home was well equipped with everything we needed; the rooms were large enough to make it a very comfortable stay. The location next to the Ringling Museum and the New College, where there were numerous evening lectures and programs were a real plus. Daily walking in the neighborhood and ease of driving to downtown, or to beaches on Lido and Siesta Key, shopping on St. Armands Key, trips to Bradenton, Anna Maria Island and many other destinations made this a very nice location. We would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a single family property in a great neighborhood."
