Why Henry or Erika chose Vamo

Sarasota and the white-sand beaches in the surrounding areas are beautiful tourist destinations. Although we own a travel agency, this has been our favourite holiday destination for more than 30 years. The area is clean and safe, like in Europe, with stunning beaches, like in the Caribbean. Experience a beautiful, 10 km beach covered with sand as white as snow in Siesta Keys— (number 1 beach in USA 2013). The property is 2 hours away from the Disney Parks and 3 hours from Miami.

What makes this house unique

Enjoy fantastic beaches, a great city with many attractions, shops, and a tropical climate in a clean and hassle-free country!

Furthermore, we offer a charming 4-5 bedroom villa with 4 bathrooms. Who can do the same for this price?

English-German-speaking property manager nearby. The highlight is the blue glass cover for the pool area with solar panels, secured by mosquito nets. In the winter months, it is covered with solar film so you can enjoy a warm pool. There are 3 equally sized bedrooms, each with an en-suite bathroom. One has a door leading to the swimming pool and the one next to it has its own balcony and living space. Even in winter, you can always find a sunny spot here! The fourth bedroom has 2 twin beds! It is very peaceful at night! Please do not have parties in the swimming pool.

Great Location and Great House

  • 5 of 5

When we arrive the house was very clean and orderly. We had called and asked if there was a crock pot in the house and were told there was not; however, when we arrived there was a brand new one sitting on the kitchen counter. The house is centrally located to everything you would want to do in Sarasota. A Publix grocery store, a Target, a CVS, a Kohls, and a Subway are less than a mile from the house.The house has a solar heated pool and the temperature of the water was very comfortable and we enjoy spending time around the pool. We ate all our meals outdoors in the screened in area surrounding the pool. There are very few houses in Sarasota that have three masters with king size beds like this house. The kitchen was well stocked. The beds were very comfortable. This was our fourth year in Sarasota and this was the best house we have had. He plan to return to Sarasota next February and have rented this house for our stay.

Owner's Response: Hi Larry, thank you for the grat review and comming again next February. We love the house like you and the best for us is, that all our guest think nearly the same. Thank you so much and you are always welcome.-------------- translate to German----------------- Als wir ankamen, war das Haus sehr sauber und aufgeräumt. Wir hatten angerufen und gefragt, ob es einen Schongarer im Haus gäbe und man sagte uns, dass es keinen gäbe. Aber als wir ankamen, befand sich ein ganz neuer auf der Küchentheke. Das Haus ist zentral gelegen und bietet alles, was man in Sarasota machen möchte. Ein Publix Lebensmittelladen, ein Target, ein CVS, ein Kohls und eine Subway sind weniger als eine Meile vom Haus entfernt. Das Haus hat einen solarbeheizten Pool und die Wassertemperatur war sehr angenehm und wir genossen es, die meiste Zeit am Pool zu verbringen. Wir aßen alle unsere Mahlzeiten im Freien in dem abgeschirmten Screen des Pools. Es gibt nur sehr wenige Häuser in Sarasota, die drei Master Schlafzimmer mit King-Size-Betten mit eigenem Bad wie dieses Haus haben. Die Küche war gut bestückt. Die Betten waren sehr komfortabel. Dies war unser viertes Jahr in Sarasota und dies war das beste Haus, das wir je hatten. Wir planen, im Februar nächsten Jahres nach Sarasota zurückzukehren und haben dieses Haus für unseren Aufenthalt gemietet. Meine Antwort Hi Larry, vielen Dank für die tolle Bewertung und das ihr im Februar nächsten Jahres wieder gebucht habt. Wir lieben das Haus wie Sie und das Beste für uns ist, dass alle unsere Gäste fast gleich denken. Vielen Dank und Sie sind immer wieder herzlich willkommen.

perfekter Aufenthalt

  • 5 of 5

Liebe Familie Biendl,

wir haben zu Zweit 2 wunderschöne Wochen in Ihrem Haus verbracht.

Alles war vom ersten bis zum letzten Tag perfekt.

Schweren Herzens müssen wir übermorgen unseren Rückflug ins kalte Bayern antreten.

Aber so wie Sie uns kennen, werden wir sicherlich nicht das letzte Mal hier gewesen sein.

Unser Tip:

Wer am Samstag Abend gerne Live-Musik in einer urigen Westernbar erleben möchte, dem empfehlen wir den "White Buffalo Saloon" in der McIntosh Rd., ca. 100 m links, wenn man die Clark Rd. auswärts fährt.

Herzliche Grüße

Agnes & Gerhard

Our month in a mansion !

  • 5 of 5

From the moment I arrived I felt at home. A few lights were left on to welcome us as well as snacks and wine. Everything is exactly as described on website and all pictures are up to date. Big spacious home gives everyone personal space when needed. Fully stocked, even all you could need for a trip to the beach. All kinds of info, pamphlets, maps.

Quiet neighborhood with friendly people, great for long, leisurely walks and even beautiful sunsets close by. Great pool, well maintained. Screened in backyard is ideal, no insects or bugs.

Very central area, good driving, easy to get around. Within an hour from Tampa, Fort Myers, St Pete's. Lots to see and do. Siesta Key beach is the best I've seen so far, close by about 15mins drive.

Henry was very attentive to our needs and checked in with us periodictly to make sure all was to our liking. Very courteous, generous and helpful. Both Henry and Sabine are friendly, easy going and aim to please.

Would definitely recommend this home to everyone. Hopefully I can return again in the future. Thank you for making our stay comfortable and perfect.

The Perfect Home

  • 5 of 5

We loved this home. We had six adults and two 18th month old toddlers in our group. The home is in great condition inside and out with large rooms. The pool area is a perfect place to relax with plenty of chairs. You are close to the great beaches and all types of shopping as well. Prior to our arrival, the owner went out and purchased an additional high chair and pack N play which was great surprise to us and much appreciated.

A July to Rememer!

  • 5 of 5

What a great vacation home in Sarasota! My husband and I along with our daughter, son-in-law and their 3 children arrived and were thrilled with such a wonderful home to stay in during our vacation. Villa Colleen pictures on the website are just like the home. It was well furnished with everything we needed and more. The pool was a major plus and we all enjoyed it every day. The home is close to several beautiful beaches (our fav was Siesta Key) but we also visited Lido and Turtle beach. There were beach chairs, beach towels and umbrella waiting for us - they thought of everything for convenience! We were close to -- Shopping, Food, Entertainment, Fishing, Medical, etc. There were no traffic issues and the neighborhood was quiet and easy to maneuver. The home was so comfortable - we truly felt like we were "home" while we were there. We had hoped that our son & daughter-in-law could join us - there would have been plenty of room but they missed out this year. We certainly recommend this property and hope to visit again ourselves sometime. Five stars were not enough for this rating. Thanks Henry for allowing us to stay in your home! Sabine was great too and had a welcome snack for our family upon arrival. Wonderful trip!!
