It's what we all move to Florida and fantasize about living in- a tropical Caribbean style bungalow with tons historic of charm!
Recently renovated with many modern updates, yet leaving the original historic charm in tact makes this the perfect romantic cottage for honeymooners or snowbirds alike! The main room has a 50' TV with 100's of channels provided by Verizon FIOS. Larger groups, you can expand by adding the rear rental Cottage that has 1 bedroom, 1 bath.
The cottage is adorable. Decorated by collecting whimsical pieces of art and furniture from local Artisans, you will surely get a kick out of the place!
Some guests have commented the best part of their stay was the location, while others said it was the fresh, luxurious linens and lavender scented towels that were the best. We hope to entice you to come back by adding special little luxurious touches. Let us welcome you with a bottle of wine, bottled water, coffee and tea. It's our goal to make you comfortable. That's what we like when we travel- that's what we want to give you!

About the owner: My name is Mikelan. I own and manage all 6 cottages with my ex-husband, Jeff (I know....Right?) We are a younger retired couple in our early fifties who retired from Virginia to Sarasota 5 years ago. We enjoy our vibrant city with all the culture activities and festivals here. We also enjoy the warm Caribbean turquoise Gulf Coast water with our boat and fishing rods. We stay actively involved in the community by volunteering at the Ringling Asolo Theater and High School Library. We are season ticket holders for the Symphony, Ballet and members of many local attractions. This year we are adding to our efforts to give back to the community by volunteering at the International Film Festival in March.
Why the Owner Chose Laurel Park, Sarasota, FL, USA:
Charming urban Laurel Park was voted #1 place to live in Sarasota by Sarasota Magazine! The location is convenient for walking to the most vibrant parts of the city. I love having breakfast at one of the outdoor cafes, while striking up a stimulating conversation with a few new friends! Just walking my dogs makes me feel like I'm are part of the the city! Most of our days are sunny and warm, which are perfect for biking to the park or Lido Beach or St. Armand Circle. The historic neighborhood is friendly with a sense of community and has a 'live and let live' attitude ...very quiet and very safe. The eclectic mix of high end homes & condos, mingle with historic bungalows, next to shops, cafes, restaurants and art galleries,makes this cottage have a funky, urban, chic 'feel'.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
If you need more rooms, there is an attached rear apt. with 1 bedroom (queen bed), 1 bathroom with shower and very large fenced in backyard for additional rent.
