About David Guarino

Linda is a professional Industrial Designer and Dave is in Computer Management. We have lived in the area for over 20 years and know the town and surrounding areas quite well. We have also traveled extensively and know what to look for and offer in a nice upscale rental.

David Guarino purchased this house in 1997

Why David Guarino chose Saratoga Springs

We wanted to get out of the hubbub on NYC and be back near family. Saratoga is the ideal location because it is so beautiful here and there is so much to do. We fell in love with this house due to the unique architecture and the beautiful trees which will cast their spell on you as well.

What makes this house unique

Saratoga is well situated near outdoor recreation options in the Adirondacks and locally, and has all the services you may need. It has long been a haven for people retreating from the City during the hot summers, and still maintains its small town charm. People love the shopping and dining options as well as the nightlife downtown, just steps away from our home.

Amazing weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with a group of friends over a long weekend. David was incredibly helpful in advance of our stay and provided all the information we would need. The house itself did not disappoint! It is as described, very roomy and perfect for a group. The rooms are beautiful and the beds are very comfortable. The outdoor space is very large and fantastic for frisbee or other sports (or just spending the day lying out). The walk to town through the park is really quick! Was easy to get anywhere we needed in Saratoga.

Great Place, Perfect Location, Wonderful People

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely home, entertaining family and friends, for a week in the fall of 2014. We had an absolutely wonderful time. The house was great, exactly what we were looking for; the location was perfect, right in the heart of Saratoga Springs; and the owner was wonderful to work with, willing to do anything necessary to make us feel welcome and at home. The house and the area were described perfectly by the owner. There were no surprises. If we decide to go back to the Saratoga Springs area in the future, we will definitely try to rent this house again. I recommend this property without slightest reservation. You might be able to find a less expensive place in the area, but you will not find a nicer house, a more perfect location, or a more accommodating owner.

Just rented this house for a week at the beginning of race season in Saratoga. What a pleasure - great location, 10 minutes walk to the track and fie minutes to Broadway in town. Best location around and the owners were incredible hosts and were always available to answers any questions. The house was well stocked and the kitchen was great for cooking, the bar-b-que on the front deck was awesome, we had a fantastic cookout. Hot tub in the back was very nice as well. Overall, the house was great, highly recommend.

Great Location, Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home provided a great setting for our annual girls' weekend get-away. We were comfortable relaxing, catching-up and generally enjoying our weekend. The hot tub was easy to access and use, the decorating was inviting and well done and the kitchen was well equipped. We walked into town for dinner and other outings several times throughout the weekend, and did easily walk to the track while out walking. Many thanks to the owners for their kindness and the use of their fabulous home.

Beautiful, convenient & very friendly owners

  • 5 of 5

Top notch! We arrived to a perfectly clean and absolutely gorgeous home. The decor is a comfortable and stylish mix of old and new, with beautiful attention to detail both in the renovations that were done, and to the little things that make a guest feel at home (like towels laid out and q-tips in the bathroom.) Be sure to check out the book they made showing the history of the house. The outdoor spaces are as beautiful as the inside with pretty patios, deck and yard, with a big hot tub that was great to relax in after walking around all day.

The house is a very easy walk into town and track, with beautiful neighborhoods for walking around in. Lots of great restaurants in town to choose from. Happy Hour cocktails & tapas at Boca Bistro and dinner at Chianti's and Maestro's were our favorites.

Lastly the owners were extremely nice and accommodating from beginning to end, making sure our stay was perfect. Would absolutely rent this house again if we came back to the area and would highly recommend it!
