About Noor Al-Tayeh

Full time professional property owner and manager. Consider when renting, you want the owner to earn his livelihood taking care of tenants. This is all i do and all I ever want to do. I spare no expense to make sure your vacation is everything you wanted.

Noor Al-Tayeh purchased this house in 2012

Why Noor Al-Tayeh chose Sarasota

Being just off the key is the choice place to be for most experienced area visitors. During the winter there is too much traffic and off the key is where you will need to go for most things in life. Be close to everything! 10 minutes in any direction will get you to the beach, mall, movies, highway, great dining etc.

What makes this house unique

Please send me a scan of your drivers license a week before your trip. I will respond with the door codes and other info you need to enter and enjoy the home. Thanks for renting from

Guestbook comments from the owner

As we were leaving the North East in December, we had 2 layers plus winter jackets. Just after arriving in Sarasota, we were sitting on Siesta Key beach, with the whitest sand I have ever seen. Unlike anything up here at the Jersey Shore. I have been to Key West and Key Largo before, but never knew that Florida had Keys on the Gulf side.

The house was nicely decorated and clean. The beds were comfortable. Didn't watch TV much, but there was a Blue Ray with Netflix and a mix of DVDs.

We ate out some nights, but having a nice kitchen to prepare meals certainly saved some money. We stocked the fridge with groceries from the new Trader Joe's that recently had opened. Neat place.

I found the location to be very convenient. Easy to get to the beach or downtown. I recommend hanging out at the Siesta Key Oyster Bar ("The SKOB") at least once for the Live music at night and good food. Also be sure to check out St. Armand's Circle.

Overall a great trip. Coming back home to the cold was rough.

P.S. If you are renting a car, fly into Tampa (TPA). It's about $100 cheaper than SRQ Airport (The cost of a rental car)

Awful beds!

  • 2 of 5

Our biggest complaint with this rental is with the beds. All the mattresses were horrible, they lacked support, you could feel the springs and your body would sink into them. They felt so cheap! My husband and I spent most of the night tossing and turning from waking up sore on the side we were laying on. The beds were so awful we only slept on them 2 nights out of our 7 night stay. We spent the rest of our trip sleeping on the couches, which still weren't the best, but so much better than the beds. We've been coming to Sarasota for 3 years now and this was the first year we we're actually ready to come home so we could get a good night sleep. Besides the beds the house was ok, we cooked almost every night and for the most part found what we needed in the kitchen to cook with. Washer and dryer work fine as well as the small grill. The best thing about this house is that we got to bring our dogs no questions asked, but that doesn't make up for the fact we spent our vacation sleeping on couches. If the mattresses would've been better we would give this place a better rating.

Not even worth the price

  • 1 of 5

The place was so dirty we had to clean upon our arrival, but it still wasn't enough - needs a real deep clean. Furniture is falling apart, barely enough hot water for 2 people to shower, closet doors that wouldn't close, shower filled up like a bathtub...would never stay here again. Not even worth the cheap price!

Owner's Response: Dear Allison, Sorry to hear you felt my home was not clean, I usually get quite the opposite response. My reviews usually say how clean the home is. Sarasota offers so many things to do and see daily, I hope you got to experience some things and of course go to the #1 rated beach in the US

Bentley Residence 2 bedroom, 1 bath w/fenced in yard

  • 3 of 5

We love going to Sarasota and Siesta Key Beach. When we arrived, we noticed several wasp nests attached to the carport and all around the house which we knocked down with a broom. The washer and dryer broke the first day we used it, however the owner was very prompt in replacing both. The house really needed a good cleaning. I mopped the floors, dusted the air vents and ceiling fans. The bathroom sink would not drain properly and we purchased a cheap wand to clean the hair out of the drain. We did not make the owner aware of the uncleanliness of the residence. However, I feel they should definitely find a new house cleaning service. Although, new pots were purchased (because we saw the box in the garbage can), the kitchen could have also used some additional baking pans. I also had to go to the Goodwill and purchase a cheap hand mixer as there was none. Again, the owners may not be aware of these issues. This is more a property management issue I feel. The neighborhood was very quiet and it was centrally located to stores, restaurants and not too far from the Siesta Key Beach. You will need a car in order to get to these places as they are not within walking distance. We rented thru Homeaway and it was easy and affordable. I hate to sound negative about this property, but I feel I do have to be honest in writing these reviews.

perfect home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This centrally located comfortable 2 bedroom was great for our trip. Good natural light. The fully furnished kitchen was perfect for preparing meals. The neighborhood is clean and quiet. very easy to get to the beach or in town attractions. I recommend this accommodation as the price and convenience are a bargain.
