  • Family group in town for special famiy event.

    "Needed a house for 5-7 family members coming from out of state for a long weekend to be near my father to celebrate his 90th birthday. This was perfect. A beautiful house with a pool, in a quiet residential neighborhood, close to shopping and to the wonderful beach on Siesta Key. The bedrooms are spacious, and if one wished, a quiet oasis, each with a TV and seating. The beds are large and as all the 20+ year olds in our group commented on several times " so comfortable they didn't want to get up". The kitchen has every conceivable appliance you could want, and that area with the adjacent seating area was perfect for family gatherings in the evening. The outdoor area around the pool is large with lots of seating and we spent our last evening out there grilling and in the pool. Lots of fun memories made! The house has much more space than we used- additional formal dining and living room, but this would be great for larger gatherings, or a place for quiet solitude. Garage was equipped with beach chairs and toys and an additional refrigerator/freezer. The enclosed pool looks out on a green area surrounded by foliage and palm trees--very peaceful. And best of all, Monika was so easy to work with. She responded immediately to every phone call, and graciously offered when I called to tell her we had arrived to stop by and bring us something as she was out shopping. I would love to come back to this house again! Thanks Monika!"

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.
