The property needs updating.

  • 2 of 5

We didn't have a microwave for the first few day's. We had to ask about a microwave did we get one. The patio door was hard to open the kids had trouble with it.The pool was great the owners of the property were resposive to our needs.But it could have been better.

Three Visits - All perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We just booked our fourth stay at Jaye's place and we cannot compliment Jaye enough for the hospitality she has shown us on all of our visits! She is very warm and accommodating and handles every detail right down to having starter coffee and supplies on hand upon your arrival. The location is peaceful and perfect for relaxing, especially with the backyard pool and on-site washer and dryer so there's no need to drive around looking for a laundromat either! Thanks for everything - looking forward to our next stay in November!

Murphy's of Maine

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here at this beautuful home on more than one occassion.(last time was for a wedding). We found it by chance and we are so glad we did. It is a gem ... a fully loaded house with a lanai.. I just had to do one quick shopping trip and I was set for the week. The owner I found out was a former "norther" and really appreciates the Florida lifestyle. She had so many ideas of suggestions for things for us to do.The house is big enough for small family (up to 6). The kids loved Jungle Gardens ,Siesta Key Beach and there own "personal pool". It's an easy ride from either Tampa or Sarasota airports... Great price too. Would FOR SURE stay here again.. Everything is so clean and is SUCH a great value.

Christmas Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This lovely vacation rental home is off the main highway but conveniently located to many of Sarasota's best attractions. You will need a car. The home is clean and spacious, with all the amenities you need for a comfortable and stress-free vacation. The rooms are actually nicer and larger than they appear in the photos. The kitchen is fully equipped. This is truly a walk-in and settle-in vacation home.

We vacationed over the Christmas holiday with some of our children and grandchildren. We visited St Armands Circle, The Ringling Museum, Siesta Key Beach, the Mote Aquarium, and the waterfront area. All were excellent choices and child-friendly. The Ringling Museum had a very nice hands-on activity area. Our 5 year-old loved it.

The weather was pleasant but unfortunately not pool weather. We did sit out on the lanai but did not get in the water. Maybe next time! We watched the sunset from the living room window.

The owner was helpful and kind. Our stay was enhanced with all her little homey touches and sense of hospitality. We highly recommend this vacation rental and hope to stay again.
