The home is simply awesome. The photographs do on VRBO do not do it justice. Immaculate! Very spacious, clean, private and accommodating. The beds were neatly made and all linens were freshly cleaned upon arrival. All three bedrooms have their own private full bath. The family room and bonus room in the basement easily sat all six of the family while watching TV. The office in the basement is great to catch up on work if needed. Giovanni and William were both very quick to respond to any questions via email and phone. Giovanni - thank you for the warm greeting upon arrival! I could not have picked a better place to take my family on vacation. The private beach access is within very close walking distance, and beach is pristine. The private beach was uncrowded and peaceful. Further, the pool was a perfect place to relax in the afternoons after being down at the beach as it is shaded from the sun in the afternoon. If you like to cook for yourself, the kitchen has all utensils and cookware you would ever need, and the grill outside by the pool was great to cook up some steaks while the family was playing in the pool. The location is also great, being close to St. Armand's Circle, New Pass Bait Shop, the Salty Dog and Mote Marine Aquarium. I cannot say enough about how amazing my stay was at this property, and I will definitely return in the future!

This is the second year our family has rented this property. The home itself is beautiful with the living area, lanai and pool. The problem stems from the fact that it's not clean and well maintained. The grill outside has been filthy both years. This year there were gross yellow stains on the sofa pillows downstairs. There was a large stain on the tile floor in the computer room downstairs. One of the bedrooms may have a possible leak (I alerted their local property manager) and smells like mildew. When my sister arrived, the code provided in the welcome packet didn't work. We texted the property manager and were given a new code. The two queen beds didn't have a flat sheet and the king bed in the master bedroom didn't have a bottom sheet. When we went to the linen closet, the sheets were not folded and were wadded up in balls. It reminded me of when I asked my kids to fold sheets. I think some of this could be alleviated if the owner included a house cleaning fee in his rental charges and didn't give renters the option of cleaning themselves. Different people have different versions of clean.

This was our first time renting a home and we are so glad we did! The first 3 days were spent watching Tropical Storm Hermine from the gorgeous floor to ceiling windows. We didn't seem to mind. The lanai and pool are fantastic. The backyard was private and we could go for late night swims. We had a couple of cliches the first few days with some things not working, but Giovanni took care of them very quickly...thank goodness for Giovanni!

The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is the beach umbrellas and one beach chair were broken and need to be replaced. We still loved going to the beach almost day.

I am already trying to schedule another trip to this home.

Thank you to Giovanni and the owners for making this home available.

The perfect vacation experience

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our 6 year old daughter stayed at the property for a week. We normally stay at the Ritz Carlton in Sarasota, but decided to try renting a home. We are so glad we did. Our trip was so relaxing, having everything we could possibly need in the home. When we first arrived the property was immaculate and we admired the beautiful room of wall to ceiling glass and the lush tropical landscaping, that makes the property very private. The pool was sparkling clean and very inviting. The homeowners have thought of everything to make our stay very comfortable. The nicely appointed kitchen, laundry room, extra towels, linens, pool toys, everything you need for a relaxing beach experience,

including, chairs, umbrellas, and a cart to carry things. The private beach access was a short walk or bike ride. The office was helpful when needing internet access. Giovanni is a phone call away if there were any questions. He is very pleasant and helpful.

We are looking forward to another stay at this wonderful property. Our daughter has been asking every day to go back the beach house.

Wonderful experience .... as my grandson expressed ..... it was a "magical" vacation.

  • 5 of 5

My husband, children and grandchildren just spent 10 fabulous days in this beautiful home. The owner was a joy to work with and upon our arrival Giovanni had everything in perfect order. I cannot say enough positive things about this home, the lovely pool and the serene private beach. Everything was absolutely perfect! My entire family gives this spot 5 stars plus and would return in a minute. Thank you again.

First time my family has given me hugs for booking a vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5

You would be perfectly happy just sitting in the main living area looking through the wall of glass into the pool area watching the sky through the palm trees. But there is so much more! Outside you can enjoy a refreshing dip in the lap pool or relax in the hot tub. Inside, the kitchen is very well equipped for those wanting to cook (we found a cast iron skillet, micro plane, and potato ricer as well as a variety of coffee making options). The downstairs media room is a great space for watching movies without disturbing anyone in the rest of the house. The private beach is just a short bicycle ride away or you can walk there pulling the provided wagon with beach umbrella and chairs. The home is in a great location for walking or riding to Mote Aquarium and St. Armands Circle as well as other Sarasota sights.

My family has been vacationing on Longboat Key for over 20 years and we were very happy to find this HomeAway property for a change from our usual timeshare stay. As a HomeAway renter (much like for a timeshare) the condition of the property is somewhat subject to how the prior occupants left it. We did have some minor issues with damp linens and wet dishes which Giovanni was made aware of and has promised to address. Overall, I would not hesitate to rent here again and would highly recommend it for anyone else looking to stay in the Sarasota area.
