"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."

"This home is gorgeous, the neighborhood is lovely, and the views are incredible! Our biggest problem was deciding whether to enjoy the magnificent view from the front of the house or the wonderful, totally private HUGE back yard with the pool! The home is amazing: the appliances are state of the art, the furnishings are fabulous, and it has EVERYTHING. Every amenity you could want is right at your fingertips. The owner has gone all-out to make this property GREAT.
We stayed for 3 weeks and hated to leave. This is a marvelous vacation home. You'll love it!"

"My daughter and I both picked this house from the Siesta Key listings independent of each other so we had a good feeling it was the right one for us. The photos were appealing and the reviews were good. In addition, it had a small, heated pool in a lanai. We live in NC and it has been a summer marked by news reports of people losing limbs to sharks along our coastline so a pool was very appealing to us. When we arrived at John's home and walked in, the house was more spacious than it had appeared in the photos. The floor plan is such that there are separate areas to which people can retreat when privacy is desired yet plenty of space for togetherness. From a practical standpoint, everything necessary is provided: the kitchen is well stocked, there is a washer/dryer in the separate laundry room as well as internet and TV with multiple channels. And we spent a lot of time in the lanai, the perfect place for swimming, reading, eating and relaxing. The house is very convenient to restaurants and beaches. We highly recommend INKANTO, a Peruvian restaurant. We had never had Peruvian food before but we all thoroughly enjoyed it as well as many of the other restaurants in Sarasota/Siesta Key, especially El Toro Bravo (Mexican), Greek Taverna and Solorzano Bros. Pizza (delivering till 4AM!) Siesta Key beach was great but we enjoyed Lido Beach and Casey Key Beach even more for their ease of parking and convenience. And yes, we did swim in the ocean and encountered no danger! John gave us his cell phone number. We had no problems at all during the stay so we communicated with him only at the beginning and end of the week. He was always pleasant and helpful as well as easy to reach. I highly recommend his home for a relaxing vacation."

"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Lakewood Ranch condo. Kathy was extremely helpful during the inquiry and booking process. She was very accommodating. The condo was beautiful and just as pictured in the ad. We enjoyed walking around the lake and seeing the wildlife. The pool was very nice with plenty of lounge chairs and tables with umbrellas. The kitchen was well equipped. The beds were comfortable and the closets were awesome. I would most definitely stay at this property again. Thank you Kathy for everything!!!!"
