In appreciation to the Sarasota Orchestra and strong community support of the arts we as a family also established a music foundation - 'All Children's Music Foundation, Inc.'

Monika was great
5 stars all around. The house and pool were great. Very roomy and spotless clean. Great towels and things for the beach. Check in and check out was very easy and Monika was available to answer any of our questions. Highly recommend this property.
I brought my immediate family down from Georgia to visit my mom, sister, and rest of family. This was the perfect size house and had all the accommodations, plus!! That we could have asked for, including pool and beach supplies and a pack n play for my grandson. The owner was always within a text message away for any questions. By far, one of the best places we have used and will stay on my favorites list. Thank you so much Monika for everything ❤️
a wonderful home
The house was over our expectations. It's very spacious and very well organized. We're meet with the owner at the house at check-in. She was there if we need anything via text/call. the house had everything you need beach towels, beach toys and beach chairs. we were 6 adults and 4 kids so everyone had their own space and the toys came in handy. It's a definitely a place to go back too.
This property was everything you could ask for and more. Perfect location for what we wanted to do during stay.
We spent 4 nights in this beautiful home. We found everything we needed. Plenty of items in the garage for a wonderful day at the beach! The lanai was gorgeous with beautiful furniture and we were in the heated pool every day. Would definitely stay here again next time. Great stay!
Private pool with screened patio is best
Great experience overall. Monika greeted us soon after we arrived and gave us a tour of the house, and was available via text / phone during our entire stay. House is spacious and very well maintained and super clean. Lots of linens and LOTS of towels available for use. Kitchen is well stocked with cookware / china / utensils. 3 bathrooms with showers means nobody has to wait for long to shower after the beach.
Heated pool with two jets in the backyard is the best. Kids had a blast using the pool. And the nice part about it is that the patio / pool area is screened so no excessive bugs while playing around the pool and eating dinner in the patio. Gas grill worked well and tank was full. Lots of pool / beach toys in the garage for us to use which was super nice. No issues at all during our stay. House is located on a quiet street and less than 15 minute easy drive to Siesta Key beach. Overall really great experience.
