  • Peaceful and Relaxing

    "We (a married couple) used to live in Sarasota and had to return for a visit at very short notice. We were incredibly pleased to find this refreshingly quiet and peaceful apartment, especially since at lot of Sarasota apartments on VRBO are near busy Siesta Key, and we wanted to be somewhere less congested. The apartment is located on the ground floor and at the end of the building, which affords a side window that the middle apartments would lack. There wasn't anyone staying above us or to the left, so we never heard any neighborly sounds. The apartment was clean, spacious and open, and although some of the furnishings and appliances are a bit dated, everything worked well. Over a 37-night stay we didn't have a single maintenance issue. The sofa is comfortable, and there's a recliner and several armchairs. There's a big dining table which was great to work on. The master bedroom is large and the bed is firm but comfortable. The kitchen is a good size and very well stocked. You can tell that the owners spend time there because it had everything we needed. The washer and dryer are only a year old and were very useful. One of the apartment's best features is an abundance of natural light, and the apartment has been decorated tastefully with light colors to take advantage of that. The covered lanai was a great place to relax and eat meals. You're right by the lake and you frequently see ducks and various birds. The apartment is in a community called the Meadows, which has been designed with lots of green spaces and a number of lakes. There's a walking trail nearby and a pristine nature reserve about a 10-minute walk away. We walked every evening and enjoyed spotting turtles and alligators in the ponds. Most of the neighbors are elderly and seemed very friendly. The Meadows is about 15-20min from the beach, but it's very close to shops and restaurants on Fruitville Rd and University Pkwy, and it's only 3-5min from the new mall. There's also a small shopping center about a 2-min walk from the apartment that contains a restaurant, a pub, a bank, a hairdresser, a dentist and a few other businesses. There's also a down-to-earth cafe called the Golden Daisy Cafe that we enjoyed on several occasions. We felt very comfortable at this apartment and enjoyed the tranquility. The owners were friendly and easy to communicate with. We definitely recommend it and have already booked a return stay for 2015!"

  • Great Pool, Great View, Great Location!

    "We arrived to visit with family who live near and were more than surprised at the amenities that this house had! I thought there would be a couple pots, pans, dishes. There were so many items for us to prepare our meals and put it out nicely. The pool and Lanai were great, the rocks around the pool area were loosening up though, so caution with really little ones. I know they call one room a den but it was perfect for our kids. Daybed with trundle and worked perfect for them! Nice Master room with bathroom and HUGE closets! 2 other bedrooms were nice as well, just wish the one had a dresser for clothes. Thankfully they had a nice large closet as well. LOTS of pool toys and sand toys for the beach outside in the garage area was another pleasant surprise! Thank you for a well appointed home. We really enjoyed out stay."

  • Old charm Sarasota

    "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!"

  • Best Sarasota rental

    "My family spent the month of April in this unit. This was by far the best rental I've ever been to. Convenient location, wild life and scenery was great. Food shopping close by and convenient. Inside of the unit everything in great shape and nicely furnished. Great layout. Place is big and feels even bigger. Kitchen has everything needed for a family. Highly recommended."
