                                                Perfect getaway!

                                                Crystal L.

                                                Perfect getaway for our family of 5. Great location and kid friendly. Went to the beach and walked to the Ringling Museum. Home is inviting and clean! Thank you!

                                                Excellent home for our brief stay in Sarasota

                                                Muriel N.

                                                This house was perfect for the four of us. My mother & I each had our own bedroom and shared a bathroom. My sister & her husband had a room and a bathroom for themselves. The house was clean and included all amenities. Only one criticism: the bedroom with the bath in it (not considered the master bedroom) has a bed that is less desirable. It is only a double bed and dipped in the middle, not real comfortable for 2 people. My sister slept on the couch in the living room which she said was very comfortable! We did no cooking during our 6-day stay, but the kitchen seemed well stocked with cooking equipment. The water is not filtered, so we purchased bottled water for drinking. We walked down to the park by the water and observed some sea creatures, but our trip was concentrated on visiting relatives in Sarasota & Bradenton, so we didn't spend any time in the neighborhood, but it is a quiet neighborhood close to many attractions. I would recommend the house to anyone.

                                                Location, location, location!

                                                nancy p.

                                                Stayed here for a month when our new construction home completion was delayed. Property was retro as advertised. Dan, the property manager was very responsive to calls - cable was out so after hubbie's 45 minute call with Comcast, they identified the problem to be an old cable box. Dan stood in line the next morning and picked up a new one. Although that solved most of the problem, intermittent connection loss still occurred which was annoying in the middle of the program but we just put up with it. Wi-fi worked fine. House more spacious then it looks and beds comfortable. Although the towels and linens had been washed and the kitchen cleaned, all of the floors in the entire house clearly had not been swept or washed in a long time so I did have to go out for supplies to do the job - lots of dirt and dog hair. The light is dim and the tile is brown so easy to miss at first glance. Also, had to clean shower and bathtub mold. I did notify the owner after the fact and she said she would request a deep cleaning which will likely remedy the problem. We absolutely LOVED the location - close to downtown and to Ringling Museum which over the course of 3 visits, we managed to experience in it's entirety. Neighborhood is lovely and a short walk to the bay-front mini park where I enjoyed the gorgeous sunsets. Loved the views during my daily 5-mile walks!

                                                Roomy, well-equipped and very conveniently located

                                                David W.

                                                Overall, this was the perfect spot for us, walking distance from the Ringling Museum, where we attended the four-day Ringling International Arts Festival, and walking distance from a lovely waterfront park, where our Cairn terrier, Walter, got to meet several local dogs. (He also enjoyed the property's big back yard, which was securely fenced so we didn't worry when he went out to explore.) We discovered a tiny ant problem in the kitchen when we arrived, but the maintenance man came by very soon after we told Diane about it and after he did his magic, ants were no more. (Dan also helped us figure out how to turn on the TV.) The kitchen was well-equipped and roomy with a separate dining area, the screened-in back porch was a pleasant place for morning coffee, and the big living room, three bedrooms and two baths offered plenty of space for ourselves, another couple and another friend who stayed part of the weekend. Definitely the ideal spot for RIAF attendees, but also just a short drive from downtown and its restaurants and cultural attractions.

                                                Very nice!

                                                Stayed at this property for a month as we waiting for our new home to be built. Perfect for our family of 5. Nice location and very clean! Owner responded quickly to any questions we had as well.

                                                Very comfortable!
