"We recently returned from a wonderful week in Coral Cottage-Rear. This was our 2nd stay in one of the O'keefe's cottages and we enjoyed it as much as our first visit in Mangrove Cottage. Since I have been visiting Sarasota since my childhood in the 1940's, I found these cottages to be a home away from home as they are reminiscent of an earlier era. However, the charming decor is fresh and chic. We loved having our morning coffee or evening wine on the patio and large fenced-in yard. Being able to walk downtown and the marina made our visit stress-free. Since neither my husband or I are tech savvy, Jeff was very accommodating in coming over to instruct us in operating the TV remote. Also, for the first time in years, I did not wake up with an aching back...wonderful mattress!"

"It was so easy to reserve the house and Monika was very flexible with our time of arrival! Such an easy process and such a beautiful home. We both want a house in Florida just like that one, especially after staying there! Amazing."

"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."
