Well appointed long term rental

  • 5 of 5

This home is just that---a home away from home. Conveniently located half a block from beautiful Sarasota Bay and less than a mile to the airport. The owner has equipped the house with all the amenities of home.

Another outstanding stay

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year at this wonderful home. You will not find a more lovely rental. Located in a quiet residential, friendly neighborhood, just steps from the bay - with stunning sunsets and lined with million dollar homes. Each of 3 bedrooms are beautifully decorated. Kitchen well-equipped. The landscaping is so pretty. We especially appreciated the fenced yard and the "doggy door" for our toy poodles. Lee was so helpful and welcoming. Any questions answered within minutes. HIGHLY recommend.

A superb winter getaway for family and friends.

  • 5 of 5

This property is conveniently located to downtown fun. There are an abundance of local activities for any taste, with the Ringling Brothers Circus and Art Museum being some of our favorites. Also, don't miss a fine dining at either Owen's Fish Camp or Marina Jack's.

With three bedrooms and three full baths, it is ideal for a family group. It is beautifully appointed and extremely well maintained.

The star of the show is the kitchen. The Wolf gas stove is surrounded by a full range of high end tools and dishes. An ideal setting for any gourmet cook.

This house quickly became our home. We have already booked our stay.

Awesome property!

  • 5 of 5

We are on our way home from a wonderful month in Sarasota. From the moment we made contact with Lee, the owner of this wonderful home, we recognized that this was going to be an exceptional rental. The house is beautifully decorated and cared for. A nod to the arts is obvious, with lovely coffee table books and truly interesting art on the walls. It took almost our whole visit to appreciate all the little touches! Lee greeted us with a welcome basket and the most delicious home-made coffee cake. She showed us how everything worked. The kitchen and bathrooms were so well equipped. The sun room and pool area were bright and comfortable. For us, the fenced yard for our toy poodles was a godsend! Another high point was the outstanding area for long walks or runs. Sidewalks and the stroll along the beautiful bay...priceless. Sunsets were stunning. Lee was readily available to answer questions and always got back to us within minutes. Easy drive to restaurants, shopping, attractions and beaches. Yes, we have already booked for next year! Can't wait!
