"This is the perfect place to stay if you want to experience all that Sarasota has to offer. It's on a quiet side street that's minutes away from Burns Court, with its one-of-a-kind restaurants, shops, and art movie theater. The historic Laurel Park residential district is less than a block away (great for walks), and the Towles Court arts community, bayfront park, Selby Gardens, and downtown -- with all of its cultural and fun activities -- are within a short walk. Access to major roads is a snap, too, and you have a reserved parking spot. The condo complex is small and beautifully maintained, and this unit is tastefully, comfortably furnished. The two spacious bedrooms have lots of closet space and their own bathrooms -- they are separated by a hallway that affords good privacy. The master bedroom overlooks a lovely pool and the Hudson Bayou, which is also visible from the kitchen. We felt well taken care of by Dan and Maureen, who provide many thoughtful extras, such as laundry soap and paper goods as well as amenities like beach chairs and towels. As the weather was cool this year, we spent a lot of outdoor reading time on the unit's two balconies rather than on the beach -- enjoying the beauty around us. Our small dog lved our stay as well; Sarasota is a pet-friendly city. Our neighbors in the complex were friendly and respectful. Our small dog loved our stay as well; he was comfortable in the condo, and Sarasota is a pet-friendly city. We felt fortunate to be there and plan to return next year!"
