  • Mad Men Meets Beach

    "We adore the open, mid-century, "Mad Men" style of this home! It is stylish, well-appointed, clean, comfortable, and so peacefully quiet. Great furniture and comfy beds were a plus. All of the amenities are available for an action-packed or relaxing stay. My husband and I adventured the canals of the Phillippi waterway on the kayaks...it was a wonderful way to explore the waterfront properties of Sarasota. We even spotted some friendly manatees along the way! The home's garden and pool are well kept too and we enjoyed many quiet evenings on the covered outdoor patio. We have been coming to Sarasota fro many years and this is the best property we have ever rented! It's an easy drive to everything and great to have Trader Joe's nearby too! Thanks Jenny & Richard for a perfect getaway! We hope to see you next year too."

  • Girls Get Away

    "My daughter and I live in San Diego CA. we stayed at this condo for 7 nights for a girls get away. This place was very clean and had everything we needed. The kitchen was well equipped and the master bedroom bed was very comfy. The balcony had a wonderful view and we spent a lot of time out there. Everything worked great, we had no problems with anything! The grounds where well maintained and it was a beautiful place to walk. Location was great for what we wanted to do. Monika was wonderful to work with and if we ever go back we will for sure stay here. The only negative thing I have to say is we wanted to BBQ and the grill did not work."

  • Fantastic property!!

    "This is a fantastic property that lives up to the beautiful images online. The house is lavishly furnished and maintained very well. It was the cleanest and best cared for rental property I have ever visited. My family and I really enjoyed the pool area a great deal. Very relaxing. The owner, Barry, was also a pleasure to work with and very responsive to my requests. Highly recommend this property!!"

  • Vacation Oasis

    "My wife and I arrived at night and from the street the home looked quite lovely. When we entered through the front door we realized how lovely it truly was, clean, tastefully decorated, nice furnishings etc. Then we slid back the vertical blinds covering the sliding doors to the lanai and covered pool area and " WoW " we uncovered our own little Oasis right outside our door. Everything that was described in the listing by the owners was true and accurate. They themselves are wonderful people to work with and will bend over backwards to make your stay comfortable and pleasing. There is a pair of Redheaded woodpeckers in the large tree in the back rear corner of the property and we had visits from Bluejay's as well as cardinals and other feathered friend while lounging in the pool area. I would be skeptical about recommending the property to friends, only because they may want to encroach on the time we wish to stay there (Ha Ha). The location in relationship to food stores, places to eat, car rentals and a variety of other attractions as well, could not have been selected better!!! My wife and I loved it so much we immediately rebooked for next year, that should tell all... Thanks David and Gail, and say Hi to Binh for us. R & P Orangeville Canada"

Sarasota Travel Tips

Sarasota offers visitors an excellent array of cultural attractions, dining experiences and outdoor activities.

Of course, while visiting Sarasota you'll want to spend ample time on the sandy shores getting that perfect tan, catching up on reading, cooling off in the bright blue waters and building the world's greatest sand castle, and there's plenty of space on the beaches to do all that and more during your vacation.

When you're ready to head inland, a variety of local restaurants await you to fill you with delicious flavors - especially fresh seafood - and provide you with a delightful night out. You can also spend time learning about the history and culture of this Floridian city as you explore the architecture, museums and even the circus.

Things to Do in Sarasota

- The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art: If you've been a long-time fan of the circus, art and the Ringling Brothers, visiting the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art and the Circus Museum are musts on the Sarasota to-do list. The Museum of Art boasts 21 galleries featuring paintings from Europe, contemporary art from Asia and America and Cypriot antiquities. There's currently more than 10,000 works in the collection in mediums such as painting, photography, sculpture, drawings and decorative arts. Some of the most treasured masterpieces are from Peter Paul Ruben, Marcel Duchamp, Rosa Bonheur, Benedetto Pagni, Joseph Wright of Derby and more. And if you love the magic of stepping into the big tent, be sure to also swing by the Circus Museum, where you'll find performing props, wardrobes and equipment like parade wagons and a person-shooting cannon. You'll also see a variety of 19th and 20th century posters and learn all about the history of "the greatest show on earth."

- Sarasota Jungle Gardens: Nature and animals lovers will certainly appreciate the Sarasota Jungle Gardens, which is one of the oldest continuously run attractions in Florida. Here you'll find more than 150 animals, both native and exotic, including parrots, birds of prey, primates, snakes, alligators, small mammals and flamingos - a huge draw here - throughout the 10 acres of tropical landscaping. The recently installed Flamingo Cam offers 24-hour viewing access to the flock of pink birds.

- Ca' d'zan Mansion: This amazing house is A 56-room Venetian Gothic-inspired structure that was formerly the Ringling family's home. The mansion covers 36,000 square feet and stands five stories tall. Take a guided tour of the palace and you'll feel like a personal guest of the Ringling family as you hear stories and information about them as well as the home itself.

- Siesta Beach: For eight miles you'll experience the city's gateway to the Gulf of Mexico. Locals and visitors alike enjoy the laid-back, relaxed vibe, calm waters of the Gulf and the unbeatable sunshine.

Dining in Sarasota

- Captain Curt's Crab and Oyster Bar: Being so close to the ocean, fresh seafood is sure to be delicious in Sarasota, and you can find tasty options at Captain Curt's Crab and Oyster Bar. This family-friendly eatery with a relaxed atmosphere and reasonable prices gives you a taste of "Old Florida" with conch fritters, crab, shrimp, gator bites, escargot and more. For the adults, there's also an outdoor Tiki Bar here that serves drinks until 2 a.m., so you can have a fun, but relaxed, night out in a tropical setting. There's also a foosball table and pinball machine inside if you're up for some friendly competition. If you're feeling adventurous, there's even karaoke and live entertainment most nights.

- Bijou Cafe: For a more upscale dining experience, head to the Bijou Cafe, which has been serving delicious Continental-American cuisine since 1986. The eatery features an award-winning wine list and exceptional service. The decor is lovely and emulates a modern European cafe with French windows and fresh-picked flowers glowing in candlelight. The Sarasota Herald Tribune has awarded the Bijou Cafe with reader's choice awards, and it has received accolades from other papers as well. Try the crab cakes, mussels, tuna tartar, roasted duck or mushroom ravioli.

- Marina Jack: For waterfront dining, Marina Jack is the place to go. The dining room on the second floor offers stunning views overlooking the intercoastal waterway while you enjoy a libation from the award-winning wine list paired with steak, seafood or pasta. The restaurants is open for lunch and dinner as well as brunch on Sundays. There are also gluten-free and vegetarian options available at Marina Back.
