About Christina Captain

I have lived in Sarasota since 1997 and I will be here until the end. I love SARASOTA! I am a Florida native, born and raised in Miami. I own a healthcare business here in Sarasota for the past 19 years. I lived at the magnolia house for 10 years and now I am offering it to travelers so they can experience the best Sarasota has to offer.

Christina Captain purchased this house in 1999

Why Christina Captain chose South Poinsettia

Clean, Quiet, Functional, Romantic, Close to EVERYTHING!

What makes this house unique

Location, location, location.

I love my house! I enjoyed it from 1999 to 2010.

Then I rented it as an annual for 3 years and then decided that I wanted to offer it as a vacation rental. I am a business owner here and believe that Sarasota is quite possibly the most wonderful place in the world to live. I want you to enjoy Magnolia Street as much as I did and love Sarasota as much as I do!

Great place and location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here for the week leading into Easter weekend. Absolutely enjoyed our stay and made some lasting memories for our beach week! The cottage was clean and well maintained, convenient to local shopping, and just a short drive to the beach. The location is in a quiet, safe neighborhood yet just off the main drag heading towards the beach. We only wish that our vacation could have lasted longer. Thanks so much......look forward to coming back!

House was nice and clean and located in a quiet but convenient neighborhood.

  • 4 of 5

Property was as advertised, and the owner was very good to work with. She also provided all of the minor odds and ends needed for our stay (paper products, cleaners, garbage bags, etc). Although biking to the beach would be a bit of a trip, the house is located within a 5-10 min drive to the nearest beach public parking lots. We had no issues finding parking by arriving at the beach around 11am. I'd stay here again without hesitation!
