Great winter get away

  • 4 of 5

We spent the month of February in this house. It was very clean and had ample room for us. The fenced in yard was nice for the privacy. It was close to Siesta Key which is where we spent many afternoons. We did not use the pool because we chose to spend the days at the beach. The neighborhood was quiet. We would recommend this place for a winter get away.

Owner's Response: I am so happy to hear that your month away in Sarasota was truly enjoyable. I am always happy to provide a clean, comfortable home away from home to all of my guests and I absolutely agree that Siesta Key is the best beach to spend your time at. I look forward to hosting you again.

Had a Great Time!!

  • 5 of 5

This home and the owner provided a wonderful experience for my family. Darcy was very responsive to all inquiries from the moment I booked to our departure. The home was fantastic.. It was very clean and well furnished. The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. The backyard/pool area was very private with what appeared to be new fencing. The price was extremely reasonable... the location was fantastic as well... no shortage of restaurants, shopping, and of course the best beaches nearby I have ever seen. Thank you very much for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home!!

Great family home to stay in while in Sarasota!

  • 4 of 5

We found this home to be in a great location for a quick trip to the beach and easy drive to all the necessities (grocery stores, restaurants, drug stores, and other shops). The home is well designed and comfortable. The owner was very responsive and available to our needs. We would definitely return if the opportunity arose.

Not recommended

  • 1 of 5

When we arrived the carpet smell was so bad that our visitors left after half an hour. The bedsheets had human or pet stains on them and hairs so we stayed up until midnight washing all of the sheets. All linens are 100% polyester and are quite uncomfortable. The house is old and the kitchen faucet leaked, the air conditioner was loud and the hot water takes a long time to come on. The toilets had urine all around them and the shower curtains had mold and a rusty drain.

Owner's Response: As guests of my home for over a month and having spoken to you via email on more than 10 occasions through out the month it’s disheartening to read now that you did not enjoy the house especially after you stated in two emails and on the phone how clean and comfortable the house is and how you would like to rent it for two months next year. With all of that being said, I did have to pay for the carpets to be cleaned after your departure, the sinks had to be augered by a plumber due to food being put down the drains, the fridge had broken glass shelves and the house was left filthy. I took the time to speak with the guests who left the day before your arrival as well as my maintenance and cleaning staff. who stated that none of those issues existed and all were a result of your stay. Furthermore, respectively you should have indicated at some point during your stay that things were amiss instead of clearly writing to me that the house was clean, comfortable and beautiful. As we were in contact on a weekly basis If not more often than that it would have been prudent had those problems actually existed. Unfortunately due to the fact I’ve had to put a claim in for the damage you are now raising issues that were a result of your stay and your two dogs. I wish you safe and pleasant travels in the future but would openly say that I would not welcome you back to my home due to the damage that occurred during your stay.

Stayed here after hurricane Irma went through and we were waiting for our power to be restored. Home was clean and Darcy was responsive when we had questions. Great value for the price.
