Second year to spend a month here and it is an exceptional place to stay!
"First- the villa: convenient to everything you need and most of what you didn't even know you needed but now want! Extremely well cared for villa home that is immaculate, and so very comfortable. At 1400 sq. ft. it is quite spacious, and the attached garage is a bonus. It is quiet in the enclave, and so if you like to party hardy, this is NOT the place for you. In fact, if you kept me up all night acting like drunken fools I wouldn't hesitate to call the police. And I'm betting so would the villa owners who live in the complex year round.
There are a lot of returning guests year after year, with a heavy concentration of Europeons. It seems the word is out in Germany, in particular, that Village des Pins is a great place to stay.
Next: the owners, Sandy and Doug. Nicest people ever! Dealling with them is always pleasant and they have a great fund of knowledge about great places to eat out. The lady from the management company, Mary, gets things done quickly and efficiently.
Older clientele stays here, for the most part, and that helps keep things quiet and very, very pleasant."

"When I first entered the villa, I said "Wow! This place is really nice." It was super-clean, recently remodeled, and has ultramodern appliances, a big living room and master bedroom, good WiFi and cable channels, 3 HD TVs and plenty of room. It's right across from the community center with a large well-heated swimming pool and gas BBQ grills. The service from the rental agent Mary was first rate and immediately responsive.
The location is perfect for all that Sarasota has to offer. It's close to the beaches and only about a 15 minute drive to Sarasota's cultural center with a concert hall, live theaters, world-class art museum and good restaurants. There's plenty to do in the immediate neighborhood, too, as it's 5 minutes from the mall with 12 movie screens. We went to Sarasota for some winter hiking, for which this villa is ideal. It is only 10 minutes from Oscar Scherer State Park and 15 from Myakka River State Park, which are great places to hike in the winter with well marked, dry, beautiful trails. After a day of hiking, we returned to the comfort and luxury of this modern spacious villa."

"Our family arrived a day early and were blessed with permission to sleep that evening rather than find a hotel at 9:30 at night. We had two little children along and they found the place a great place to wonder around. The house had all the accomodations we needed, was close to the beach and was clean and is tastefully decorated. Veronica was gracious to us and we want to recommend the house to persons we know that vacation in Sarasota."

"The villa is beautiful, perfectly clean and well located! The owner, Bea is a first class “landlord”. She is always there within a few hours to deal with any issue that may come up and we would like to rent from her again! We were surprised on how well equipped the home was! Thank you for everything!"
