About Janet Posner

We bought this lovely home because we enjoy coming to Sarasota during February and look forward to sharing it with you the other months of the year. The rest of the year we live in Charlottesville, Virginia - home of the University of Virginia, Thomas Jefferson, and particularly beautiful fall and spring weather near the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Why Janet Posner chose Indian Beach Sapphire Shores

Once we decided to buy, we fell in love with this tree-lined, quiet neighborhood, and this street in particular, with its proximity to viewing the sunset one block away, to flying in and out of the area via the Sarasota Bradenton International Airport only a few miles away, and to the Ringling complex of museums, cafes, and lectures, along with the short drives to all that downtown Sarasota has to offer, with its convenient shopping, art galleries, performance venues, and terrific dining.

What makes this house unique

We had so much fun picking out all the furniture and decor to change it from an empty building to a comfortable, inviting place to live with its screened patio, its open floor plan of spaces, its accommodating bedrooms and bath configuration, and its sunny, very private backyard and pool. We've tried to anticipate all your needs.

Lovely retreat and welcoming escape for a family of 5!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five (children aged 10, 8 and 6) absolutely adored this standout property in Indian Beach. We had an unforgettable stay and felt that all of our needs were met with the owners' thoughtful attention to nearly every detail.The home is beautifully appointed with three spacious bedrooms, each with its own spacious bathroom, and all three have direct access to either the outdoor screened-in patio or the pool area. Our girls absolutely adored the pool, which gets plenty of sunshine throughout the day with nicely shaded spots as well. The pool is great for beginning swimmers with a slow slope into a not-so-deep deep end. The water was always warm during our summer stay. We enjoyed the outdoor seating area for grilled lunches and were able to clean off after the beach before entering the house. The back yard is very private and lush, which we also really appreciated!

The kitchen and bar area are great for meal prep and we had every utensil we needed while there. The various seating areas were very comfortable and provided lots of fun place space for card games, scrabble or just doodling.

We really enjoyed staying in Indian Beach even though it does add about 7-10 minutes to your commute to Siesta Key beach (our favorite spot which we went to every day). However, the neighborhood is very quiet, private and great for short walks. We actually appreciated being slightly removed from the hustle and bustle and felt more like year-round residents in that area rather than tourists. There is a lovely mango tree out front that we also enjoyed since there were unlimited fruits during our summer stay!

What else can I say... we would highly recommend this property! Very tidy and updated throughout, a couple of super beach chairs, an umbrella and a cooler are available for beach outings, and there is a great laundry room and tons of closet space. The owners have truly covered every detail! Thank you again for a wonderful stay!

Owner's Response: So very glad you all enjoyed your stay. Since we live there about six weeks each year ourselves, we thought we had done a pretty good job of covering most contingencies, but glad to hear we were successful. Come back another year!
