About Steve & Cathy Cross
This is my first time purchasing a home as a vacation rental. We hope that we make your vacation experience a wonderful one to where you will want to recommend us to your friends and family and come back and stay with us time and time again.
Steve & Cathy Cross purchased this House in 2012
Why Steve & Cathy Cross chose Whitfield Estates
I live in Kentucky and Sarasota is where I have a lot of family that has relocated there. I vacationed as a child in this area and continued as an adult. I love this area and want to make it my home one day so buying this house was something I have always wanted to do. My wife and I were married there on Siesta Key beach and we both love the sunsets and relaxing in the backyard. We hope that you and your family enjoy it and want to return for many years to come.
What makes this House unique
This home has a wonderful sunroom that you can come in from your day at the beach and relax and be away from the hassle of the house while your family is getting ready. Or the private fenced in backyard has a patio area to sit and relax and watch the birds fly over and hear the palm trees sway in the wind. The pool and tropical landscape will entice you to just stay at the house.

Awesome pool home
We have rented this property in the past, and as usual, We were not disappointed. The back yard with pool is beautifully landscaped and so relaxing. The house is comfortable and well appointed. Nice central location to Anna Maria Island, Lido and Siesta keys. Lots to do in the area.The owners are great and are always very quick to respond to questions.
Thank you so much for the kind words!! I am so glad that you guys had another great trip to Sarasota!! We appreciate you all staying with us!
Thank you for the review. Hope your trip was a great one!!
As usual we had a great time, a little trouble when we arrived - no AC, but that was soon fixed, we got in touch with Steve and Cathy and they sent a gentleman to fix it.
We love staying in their house they have got everything you need it has such a comfortable feeling.
We will be back
Love Patricia and Leif Lewander
Beautiful place & we had a wonderful stay.
The Cross' were a delight to deal with. They have a beautiful home it was so much nicer than staying in a motel. We had everything we needed for a very comfortable stay. Nice to have a private pool & not have to deal with all the other people like at a hotel. It truly was like a home away from home. This was our first experience with a rental home and I must say that for an extended stay I will never do a hotel again.
So glad that we decided to try this out.
If you're in doubt you shouldn't be this is a great place to stay and the owners, Steve & Cathy Cross are great.
I hope we get to do this again sometime.
Beautiful Home Away From Home
This place is awesome! We were pleased with everything it had to offer. Great location, close to beaches, shopping, restaurants, outdoor bars, farmer's market, movie theatre. Loved the tropical pool setting. Beautifully decorated. Has everything you need to enjoy your stay. Owners are attentive to everything and easy to contact. We will definitely stay here again.
Loved this house!!
Recently stayed at this house with my husband. The house was neat, clean and very comfortable. We had everything we needed and more for an enjoyable week. The pool area is beautiful and peaceful. Although our primary reason for traveling to the area was the beach, we enjoyed the pool area so much that we ended up alternating days between the pool and the beach. The home is also convenient to grocery stores, restaurants and shopping. We hope to return again soon!
Hey!! Thank you so much for your kinds words in the review you gave. We really do hope that you do come back and stay with us again! So glad that Sarasota was a place you all enjoyed - it is a great place. Thanks again! Steve & Cathy

Marina Jacks is close by for an afternoon or evening dining or cruises. Ringling Museum and the theater. Sarasota Jungle Gardens is a wonderful day trip for all ages.
