About the property

Villa, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths (Sleeps 4-6)

Villa in Sarasota close to Siesta Key.

This spacious villa is located at the tropical landscaped Village des Pins setting, and is the ideal location to have a superb holiday, whether you wish to wind down after Disney or use it as a base for exploring the Gulf Coast area of Florida. Here is everything you need on site and its surrounding area facilities.

There are two bedrooms. The master having a queen bed, walk in wardrobe/dressing area, ensuite bathroom and TV/DVD. The guest bedroom has 2 twin beds. There is also a family bathroom. Attached to the sitting room is a screened Lanai/sun room so you can sit in modern Adirondack-chairs outside and watch the sunrise or set, and the world go by.

There are also 2 single foldaway twin beds available that can be made up to accomodate 2 more guests if required. Max 6 persons/villa. Crib and high chair are also available.

Tennis and golfing equipment, as well as beach stuff for the children and beach chairs for their parents, are in the garage, ready to take along to Siesta Key Beach.

The kitchen has all usual appliances and also a washing machine, tumble dryer, and dishwasher.

The living room furniture and floor coverings are new, and the high vaulted ceilings and 1350sq ft of living space makes it feel very roomy and relaxing. It has a large 50' flat screen cable tv, dvd player and ipod dock.

Free Hi Speed WiFi Internet access and local telephone calls.

Fully air conditioned. Central atrium to allow natural light in the living area.

New bedroom carpets have been layed recently, along with repainting throughout internally, and new sun room/lanai furniture. Ceiling fans throughout the entire villa, including the lanai.

There are two dining areas ( breakfast and formal).

A large integral garage with electric door for ease of use. Parking for a second car if required outside the villa.

The villa is located in a quiet cul de sacs. The location is great for kids and they can play safely at the large heated pool/Jacuzzi or tennis courts and other activities on site. Free barbeque, both gas and charcoal fired, are at the picnic area overlooking the lake and feature fountain. Everything is on one level, so its easy to get about.

We want you to feel that this is your 'Home away from Home'. Friendly, safe, and relaxing location and just minutes from shopping/beaches/bars/restaurants/golf and a wide range of activities to suit all tastes. Sarasota is brimming with culture and the arts.

As we are private owner/renters, our prices are often much lower than 'managed villas'.

We also have a local agent to take care of minor problems and requests etc.

A folder 'A word of welcome' will give you a lot of further information; - what to do, - where to dine etc etc. You are as quests more than welcome to contribute with further information to the folder.

About Frederik B Frederiksen

My wife and I are living in Denmark in the summertime, but enjoy spending our cold winter months in Florida, where we have fallen in love with Sarasota.

Frederik B Frederiksen purchased this villa in 2012

Why Frederik B Frederiksen chose Florida South West

As we enjoy the beach at Siesta Key we wanted to buy our vacation home quite near to this wonderful beach. Easy access to shopping and dining facilities was also a key matter why we selected the villa at Village des Pins.

What makes this villa unique

When we arrive at the villa we have a feeling of getting home despite the fact that we have been travelling close to 10 000 km. This is indeed 'Our home away from home'.

Your home is truly a "home away from home!" Beautifully decorated and has everything you would need for a vacation getaway. We enjoyed just relaxing and going to the beach.

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely wonderful trip and the house was fantastic with everything we needed and then some! We especially loved the pool, and the beach was just as amazing as we remembered. We have never stayed in the same place twice but this may be our first repeat! Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Nice place and location

  • 4 of 5

This is a spacious condo with everything you need.

We had a problem with the dryer and Frederik stayed on top of it until it was fixed.

I would stay here again.

Roomy Accommodations in a Peaceful Neighborhood. GREAT Location!

  • 5 of 5

This was the 5th time we've rented thru VRBO in the Sarasota area, and this was our favorite rental! We've always been in 2-story Condos, which are noisier (having someone either above you or below you) than this peaceful one story Villa. The neighborhood has a lovely warm swimming pool and hot tub that we enjoyed several evenings. It's close to the Mall (Quick bite to eat at the food court) as well as to the powdery white sand of Siesta Key Beach. The villa itself was very comfortable. Although there were only two of us, it could easily accommodate a family of 6. There was a couch and 3 comfortable La-Z-Boy recliners to relax in after a hard day at the beach. The queen bed in the master bedroom was more comfortable than my mattress at home! Slept like a baby...

We made simple breakfast meals in the roomy kitchen, and ate our mid-day meals out. There's a new "Sprouts Garden Market" 1/2 a mile away where you can obtain very reasonable fruits/veggies, Deli, wraps, etc. which we'd enjoy with yogurt for our evening meal.

We like to explore various beaches. Each has it's own 'character'. We love the powdery sand and shallow water of Siesta Key, but for finding Fossilized Shark's Teeth we love Nokomis, Manasota Beach and Blind Pass Beach. Stump Pass Beach ($3 parking fee) also has shark teeth, but there's a bit of a hike to the end of the beach where we find the most teeth, and you need to get there EARLY, as there is limited parking. (Find the tide report on line. It's easier to find teeth as the tide is towards the low side and going out) May is a great time to visit beaches as the water has warmed up to 79-82 degrees, and the Spring Break crowd is gone.

We also saw the last Ski-A-Ree waterski show of the season (Near the Aquarium). It's nice, free family entertainment, but they don't operate thru the summer. We found the Big Cat Habitat and Sanctuary to be very interesting. Had never heard of a "Liger "or a "Tigon" -Crosses between Tigers and Lions, very B-I-G cats!

Frederik was quick to respond to communication before our visit, and we had no problems upon our arrival. We found his home to be clean and well equipped. He even had a large canopy tent to provide shade for a family at the beach as well as a beach cart to haul beach toys and equipment.. For just my husband and I, however, we found it easier to pick up a 5 foot umbrella with an integrated anchor at Target. Loved our time in Sarasota!
