About The Owner

My husband and I are Realtors in Sarasota Florida for 15 years. We decided to make a go of it and make this adorable condo a seasonal rental. We have owned it for 10 years.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2004

Why The Owner chose Florida South West

We just thought this condo was the just the right size and location. You don't get caught in the Siesta Key traffic unless you are at the beach!! It's a small complex with only 8 units to the building.

Just a cute spot!

What makes this condo unique

Not always stuck in the Siesta Key and south bridge traffic

Can walk to Carrabbas and Stonewood restaurants

Small complex

Close to bus line

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at Villa Maria in Condo C for 3 nights at the end of March 2016. We found the condo in immaculate condition. The 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms with a fully furnished living room and fully equipped kitchen were just perfect! In addition, on the porch there were beach chairs, mats, beach umbrella, and in a closet there was a cooler and beach towels for the guests use. Siesta Key and the beaches was just a minutes’ drive or short walk away, groceries and other stores in walking distance and the other guests staying there were very friendly. The pool was perfect for the child in our party, and as an added bonus there was a free washing and dryer (just supply the washing liquid) by the pool available to the guests. There was nothing you needed but your clothes and food! I would recommend this condo for anyone that wanted to stay a few days or a few months. Communication with the owner of the condo was within a few hours and all our questions were answered. Yes, we would recommend this condo to anyone who want to stay in the Sarasota area.

Thank you

Margaret Jacksonville, FL with family who stayed with us from Scotland.

Great location, clean and had everything that we needed for a beach vacation. We would stay again.

  • 5 of 5

This property was easy to check into and out of. It was located just a few minutes from two of the main beaches that we spent our time snorkeling on. The drive to Siesta Key Village was about 10 min.

The property was clean and had all the cooking utensils that you would need. It had a regular coffee pot, although this one may be on it's way out. It did not want to make the full pot of coffee. It also has a Keurig that works great. We enjoyed using the DVD player to watch a movie one night. They have several great beach chairs for your use during your stay and a beach umbrella.

It was a quiet area and the other tenants were friendly. The AC worked wonderfully. The master bedroom bed rolls both sleepers to the middle all night but doesn't have your back aching the next day.

We had a great stay here and would definitely stay at Susan's condo again!

I absolutely loved our stay. This condo has everything you could want and more. It is quick to beach and all beach equipment is provided. It is quick to Publix for groceries to make delicious meals on the provided grill.

I would not hesitate to recommend this condo. Susan the owner was wonderful to work with too!

This was exactly what it said it was. We had everything we needed and then some. Great location, close to everything. Owners were great to work with. Wifi wasn't great for AT&T users but everything else was perfect. We will definitely stay here again if we come back to this area.

Very nice stay in Sarasota Florida .

  • 5 of 5

Excellent condominium apartment with everything you need including beach chairs and beach umbrella which is absolutely necessary this time of the year. Location is very convenient to local grocery store and nice plaza only 2 minutes drive. 5-6 minutes drive to the amazing siesta key beach. Small pool with few chairs to relax and access to laundry room is great and important. Wifi was a little bit issue from the beginning, but resolved after quick email to Owner. 2 washrooms were very convenient to our family . Will definitely come back .
