I can't say enough about this place! I took my family to Sarasota for the Thanksgiving holidays and we celebrated a wonderful holiday celebration there. The house is beautiful with a wonderful floor plan and every amenity we could ask for. The kitchen was well-stocked and furniture comfortable and attractive. Our favorite part was the pool area with the outdoor dining, kitchen, and grill. We truly loved every minute of our stay there and Kathleen was so great to work with! The location was also perfect, just 15-25 minutes from a fabulous mall, restaurants, St. Arman's Circle, and Siesta Key. Would definitely recommend this and will plan to stay there again!

Nice family vacation

  • 4 of 5

Pool was great (however some better safety features like childproof doors would've given me a better peace of mind at night if kids wandered out by the pool. We did our best to monitor them at all times.), kids enjoyed their bunk beds, directv in all bedrooms, beach decor made it feel just like a vacation home should feel. House was only about 20-30 min from the closest beaches, nearest Publix was only about 10 min away. Gave 4 stars due to beds and location of home on busy street. All the beds had vinyl mattress covers including the master bed. Beds were also very hard and uncomfortable. As for the busy street, the house was located on a street that would get a lot of cut through traffic. When a loud car, truck or motorcycle would barrel down the street, it would startle my two year old and at times wake us up at night. We spent most of our time at the beach so we didn't have to deal with the noise too often. We booked this property only a few weeks before our trip and enjoyed our time. Good deal for the size of the property, proximity of beaches, and amenities.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I'm glad that you enjoyed your stay. All of the furniture is brand new. The property is fully fenced in the back yard as well. I have door alarms that will help with the child proofing. Just haven't gotten them on yet. Thanks for the reminder. Hope to see you next year.
