Why email@example.com chose Arlington Park
We adore Sarasota for its beautiful beaches, great art scene and amazing restaurants. There is always a lot to do, with kids or without.
What makes this House unique
The location is wonderful. You can walk to the mall in 15 minutes, or drive there in a couple of minutes. It's about a 15 minutes drive to famous Siesta key beach, which is known for its fabulous sand, which honestly feels like powdered sugar! Very close to Lido beach as well, and you can also drive to Longboat key from here and also the absolutely gorgeous Anna Maria Island where watching the sunset at The Sandbar restaurant is nothing short of spectacular.

Beautiful property but we had some issues
Before I get into reviewing the house, I want to mention that we found a Drop Cam. VRBO policy specifically says that any cameras inside properties are prohibited. Mike disagreed with this statement and said it was not recording and that it was for security when no one was using the house. I searched the listing for mention of a camera but there was nothing. VRBO also verified that I was correct. Because of this, we left the house within 24 hours.
Besides this issue, the overall house and furnishings were beautiful. The property is well kept and the pool is stunning. There is a shed filled with floats. The layout of the house is a bit strange and it is definitely smaller than it appears in the photos. There is one adjoining bedroom attached to the master so you have to walk through the master to access it, which can affect privacy. The temperature was much hotter in that bedroom, and even with the two fans that were provided, there was a major temperature difference. We requested permission to adjust the temperature because the Nest was locked at 70 and Mike was responsive in allowing it.
The master bedroom door lock is reversed, so my child managed to lock me in the bedroom. Fortunately, there’s a door leading out to the patio so I wasn’t trapped. The listing states that the kitchen was recently renovated, and the appliances are definitely new, but there is no garbage disposal in the kitchen. It's also good to note that all the interior doors are shuttered so you can hear everything. This is more of a factor because we have little kids and a baby who naps. Also, two cigarette butts were left on the bench under the car port.
My fiancé and I came from Wisconsin to get married here on Lido Key Beach. The house was absolutely beautiful, very clean and comfy. The private pool was perfect! We checked out a couple beaches, but being able to get away in your own private pool was much needed!! I want to say thank you again to Mike for allowing us to rent his beautiful property! I cannot wait to come back!
The Palmhouse is a fantastic property and has all the amenities our family needs. The house is spacious and always clean. The backyard is very private while the pool provides hours of fun for our kids. Everything is within a short distance with Siesta Key beach only 10 minutes away. The owners are great to work with and very responsive if you ever have a question. We will for sure stay at the Palmhouse again on future trips to Sarasota.
This was a great relaxing week for me and family during the holidays. This was the best house we have staying in by far. from the outdoor shower to the very private back yard. would highly recommend staying in this house again. The owner was very easy to deal with and keeps the house very clean. Thank you again for this great stay at your house
Great Sarasota Midcentury Home
Fantastic mid-century Sarasota home that is boasting amenities. Outdoor area is immaculate, with a great swimming pool, patio, and bbq area. Excellent outdoor shower as well. Inside the house has 3 nicely sized bedrooms. Very comfortable and well decorated house that is obviously looked after. Home owner takes great care of this house, and is available to you should the need arise. Location is great. Easy access to pretty much anything in the Sarasota area. This house is a can't miss!
A stylish haven, beautifully appointed
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the palmhouse. Every detail throughout the house and garden have been thoughtfully designed. It was a tranquil home set in a beautiful location. We walked every morning before breakfast in the surrounding streets to Arlington Park. We enjoyed spending time around the pool and relaxing in the living space. Very quiet at night and the air con was perfect since it was really hot outside!
We already knew the area well but the recommendations in the 'house' folder were really great suggestions for us, some that we hadn't come across before. The palmhouse feels very much like a home rather than a 'rental' so that was a big plus for us. Highly recommended accommodation!
