About Property Manager
Owners, Ken and Sue are from New Jersey. Ken is a mechanical engineer, and Sue works in advertising. Ken is also accomplished guitarist, and member of a praise band, and good 'ole fun-time classic rock band in NJ...(always a guitar handy in the Casa unit for his and your use.) Ken says 'People really miss out on the best times of the rental season in April/May and September. The weather is so mild and the water so perfect. Plus the rates are so low. (2 weeks for the price of one in September)!' No impact thus far from the BP spill at all. No no-seeums! We don't believe Casa has ever charged a renter a hurricane day, or a cancellation due to a true family emergency.
Property Manager purchased this Condo in 2003
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
It was perfect location. Quiet and great for family of 4.
Heaven on Earth
This has been my fifth year at Casa del Mar and like a fine wine, it just gets better with age. I could go on and on about the beach and the Gulf of Mexico, but I think I will let the attached picture do the talking for me. So that leaves me to describe the accommodations. This will be my third different condo, and each one is unique within itself. The layout of each condo is a bit different depending on whether you are on the ground floor, second floor, end or middle. My unit had a beautifully vaulted ceiling making the condo seem comfortably spacious. Each unit is uniquely decorated, so it makes for great adventure when you change units each year.
I have been going to Sarasota for the past thirty years and never run out of things to see or do. The entire area is incredible, and if you are adventurous Tampa, Clearwater, and St. Petersburg are only an hour away.
I always read the previously posted reviews for the year, curious as to what people might complain about since I never can find fault with Casa. It always seems as though the people complaining have something that is broken or in need of repair, but then wait until they check out to bring it to the staff's attention. Most often people don't say anything prior to leaving, which then creates the problem for the next guest. When I went to take my shower, the tub drained very slowly. I told the staff and within ten minutes their maintenance person was there and fixed the problem. While Casa del Mar is as close to perfection as it gets, there will always be minor exceptions, but the difference in Casa and other places I have stayed, is how these exceptions are handled. The resort is heaven on earth and the staff are the angels. Try it, you'll love it.
Our stay at Casa del Mar, a wonderful property
We love the property and have stayed in various condos at Casa del Mar over the past 20 years and continue to return. The condo was well maintained and nicely furnished. We were surprised that more simple things like seasonings etc. were not left in the condo, so it cost quite a bit to stock the kitchen with what we needed, simple things. But overall, not a better location on the island with a lovely beach and pool.
Just like the title says ~ Paradise!
Enjoyed our stay at Casa del Mar. Grounds are meticulously landscaped. Pool area and beach were clean and had plenty of lounge chairs. Condo was very clean and the kitchen was well-stocked. The carpet needs shampooing though. Enjoyed my morning coffee in the sunroom looking at the gulf. Walked the beach for miles every morning. Not many restaurants or shops within walking distance. Public transportation is easily accessible and there is a free trolley from the public beach. Free wifi in the condo was appreciated. I would definitely return and highly recommend Casa del Mar.
Vacation with Grand kids
We had a wonderful stay at Casa Del Mar. The condo was nicely furnished with everything we needed. The grounds were well maintained and the pool was inviting. The check in and out procedures were very smooth and went quickly. We enjoyed day trips to the Ringling circus and museum and the Mote Aquarium, both being within a short drive. We would definitely come back again and recommend Casa Del Mar to anyone looking for a nice relaxing vacation.
We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for selecting us. We hope that you re-book with us soon.
Immaculate Beach Getaway
Our stay at Casa del Mar was outstanding. The condo is adorable, immaculate and has plenty of space for the whole family to relax (not to mention flatscreen TVs in every room). The beach is gorgeous and the water is crystal clear. This is a great place to come and unplug, but it's also minutes from great shopping and restaurants in St. Armands Circle if you're looking for a night out.
If you forget your own beach towels you can buy them in the main office.
A great value for the experience!
