This house and location is incredible. We were pleasantly surprised to find the house fully equipped with beach chairs, beach umbrella, beach towels, beach toys, pool toys, games, etc. The owners definitely thought of everything when outfitting this home. Siesta Key Beach was beautiful, but we also really enjoyed going to Nokomis beach which is just a few minutes away. The kids also loved Caspersen Beach in Venice, where we had hours of fun hunting for shark teeth. We couldn’t have asked for more and we will see you next year.

Outstanding Home in a Wonderful Location

  • 5 of 5

Lovely home, tastefully decorated, and immaculately maintained. Lots of room for a family to enjoy together-times and also to have some downtime.

We enjoyed Osprey, but also had lovely day trips to Punta Gorda, Sarasota, and St. Petersburg.

We have rented many homes over the years, but this experience was exceptional. The owners make you feel welcome.

Everything we hoped for

  • 5 of 5

I have never rented a place before where I felt more at home than here. The property was every bit as beautiful as the pictures make it look and extremely clean and well taken care of. You are a 2 mile drive away from a very quiet Nokomis beach where we enjoyed multiple sunsets without the extra traffic and beach goers. During our days we had scheduled for the entire day at the beach we spent them at seista key beach which is also only a 10 minute drive. The owners of the property are extremely helpful and hospitable. They left multiple things in the home that made our fun in the sun much more enjoyable without having to go purchase it on our own (lawn chairs, body boards, rafts). We also enjoyed how quiet and private the home was sitting at the end of a culdesac. We will be back!

Luxurious vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Bayfront Retreat 2/10/18 to 3/3/18. From the moment you walk in the door, you know you are in a home that has been lovingly renovated. The furniture, towels, bed linens, and mattresses are all high quality. The view is amazing. We watched boats go by all day every day. The house is well-equipped; I can't think of anything we needed that they didn't have. There were plenty of dishes, glasses, pots, pans, storage containers, and large covered bowls as well as every imaginable kitchen utensil. Even the appliances are all high end. I almost hate to give such a good review because I'm afraid too many people will rent it and it won't be available for us next year! The owner was very nice and responded to any questions we had very quickly. The house is close to Nokomis Beach, Venice, and the beaches of Sarasota. You will not regret renting this house! If I could give it a higher review, I would.

Many thanks for 10 incredible days in paradise. Your home is beautiful, comfortable, inviting and relaxing. The property has everything that was promised in the pictures and description plus more! The entire house is fully equipped inside and out and the owners have made sure to include absolutely everything you could possibly need during your stay. The beds were very comfortable and the furnishings were top notch!

We ate at Max's table at least three times and enjoyed our brunches that included fish tacos, crunch french toast, omelets and breakfast burrito. They were all delicious and well prepared. We also enjoyed several meals at Croissant & Company in Venice - if you're in the mood for a hearty sandwich, the roast beef, blue cheese and tomato croissant is a must! The quiche was also delish, and the desserts are all divine.

Spend some time on the dock in the afternoons and you may see dolphins, stingrays and several species of sea birds. We also went to Nokomis Beach (our fav) and Siesta Key Beach, which has soft silky baby powder fine pure white sand.... Totally amazing!!!

This vacation was everything we needed to cure our winter blues. We highly recommend this home as a choice for a fun and relaxing vacation. Thank you so much for sharing your lovely home with us!

Nicest place in Sarasota

  • 5 of 5

We have rented all types of places in the Sarasota area, and this was hands down the nicest place we have ever stayed. The home is fully furnished and has all of the items needed as if it was your own home. The location is close to the beach, shopping and restaurants. And the views.... just breathtaking! We will definitely be renting again. If you are considering staying here, you have found the right place.
