About Don Vigil

Our family is from Albuquerque, New Mexico, where my wife and I own small businesses. Our son is an illustrator who graduated from Ringling College of Art in Sarasota, and our daughter is in the jewelry business in Denver. She and her husband have a baby boy and a toddler girl.

Don Vigil purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Don Vigil chose Sarasota

This cozy little place was purchased when our son was a student at The Ringling College of Art, since it was so close to school. We decided to hang on to it after he graduated giving us a new and interesting place for us to spend vacations, especially during the winter.

Great place to stay! Super clean, nicely decorated. Close to lots of local attractions! Loved sitting on the screened in porch reading in the afternoons and watching the geckos. This was our first vrbo experience and based on it, we will choose vrbo over a hotel from now on!

Great place!!

  • 5 of 5

My son and I were recently in Sarasota for 7 days for a baseball tournament. This was the perfect little getaway house for us. Beautifully decorated and nicely furnished. It is in a great location, close to everything. I was particularly thankful for the washer and dryer as I had to wash uniforms in a daily basis! I would definitely stay again. We loved our visit.

Absolutely splendid

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved the five nights we spent in this charming cottage. Our mini poodle loved the fenced and secure back yard, and so did we. The old pin oaks dripping with Spanish moss were lovely. Lots of greenery and palms in the neighborhood create shade, very nice for walking. The quiet neighborhood has a mellow, friendly vibe. Bustling downtown is about 8 minutes away. Great restaurants and shopping. Try Libby's Cafe on Siesta Key! Whole Foods is about 4 minutes away. The cottage was comfortable, and immaculate, with everything one would need. Morning coffee on the screened front porch was wonderful. The owner is 100% responsive. We have only thumbs up for this delightful cottage -- and Sarasota itself!

This cozy cottage is close to the best that Sarasota has to offer. It is just 5 to 10 minutes to the fabulous Ringling Museum, Ringling Circus Museum and downtown Sarasota, not to mention Sarasota-Bradenton Airport. It is just two blocks to the Ringling College of Art and ten minutes to New College of Florida and the University of South Florida. In addition, the location is within fifteen minutes of fabulous shopping at St. Armand's Circle and the sugar white, nationally ranked Siesta Key Beach.
