Unpretentious house - slightly off the beaten track but central. The house is 1000 sq feet under air, but boasts a large lanai, a fenced in garden and a private lake - all of which contribute to exceptional value for money . Large enough to allow for guests - the house sleeps 4-6 comfortably. There is a queen bed in the master , along with twin trundle beds for spare visitors. The sofa bed in the living room serves as a double as well. There is one bathroom in the house and another shower room and toilet off the lanai - in the laundry room. This serves as spare bathroom if need be. We are pet friendly --- please ask. Owner- Agent

About Sam Azrak
Owner is a Licensed Realtor with Sunlit Realty , Fort Myers, 1342 Colonial Blvd, 33907
Sam Azrak purchased this House in 2013
Why Sam Azrak chose Sarasota
I fell in love with the private lake at the bottom of the garden. Simple as that. I find this property enchanting in more ways than one. A simple 1957 structure that harks back to a simpler less complicated way of life. For me- it's what vacation is all about. Simple living and unhurried schedules -- welcome to Sarasota!
What makes this House unique
Central , yet a self contained house as opposed to a condo. Apart from the view and lake - already mentioned - this house has charm. From the original floor to ceiling sliders, to the patio accessible from all sides, to the fenced yard and retro kitchen--still with great ammenities, but also the upgrades -- new high quality flooring and quality furnishings and bedding. Come see for yourself and please let us know your thoughts.

Nice house, comfortable beds, great patio.
The kitchen has nice appliances. This was less expensive and more like home for our family and having to rent 2 connecting hotel rooms. However, we had to mop floors right away. The cleaning service did not do a good job. The home could use more towels and wash clothes. But, I recommend the home as an alternative to hotels. Winn Dixie, Save a Lot and Wal Mart are within a mile. Overall, I would rent this home again.
Nice house on a lovely lake.
We enjoyed our 2 wk. stay as did our pups. The lanai is wonderful to spend time in and overlooks the lake where we saw many egrets, ducks and limpkins. Some came into the yard as well. There is also a nice gas grill in the backyard where we spent time with our dogs. The house was charming and Sam was very responsive to any questions. He's equipped the house with everything you could need. The bed was comfy as was the living room furniture.
The 2nd bedroom only has 1 trundle bed and the 2nd bathroom was not setup for use, so make note if you need use of these. I'm sure Sam could easily accommodate.
Thanks for the review.
Glad the stay was enjoyable. The bathroom off the Lanai is usually used if a spare is needed. No air con as off Lanai. I ve rented to the same guests for 3 yes so may have forgot to mention to you. The trundle in bed 2 sleeps 2..one bed rolls out from underneath. The couch is also a sleeper. Thanks for your input
Comfortable house with lovely view.
The view of the lake from the lanai room in the back is beautiful. Can watch ducks on the lake and the green trees and bushes across the lake. Plenty of storage room and closets for clothes. Very, very clean. Full functioning kitchen and washer and dryer. Landlord very easy to work with.
Thank you. I'm so glad you liked the place. People often request the condo but this is I think better!
Enjoy the rest of your time in Florida.
Great get away with a great host
I was staying here while I interviewed for a job out here. The house has a huge lanai that has a view of a small private lake and is very peaceful to sit back relax and enjoy your surroundings. Sam was my host and was very attentive to anything I needed. He recommended nice resturants in the area. This place is 10 minutes to Siesta key and 15 minutes to beautiful St Armonds circle. I would definitely return and would definitely choose over an overpriced hotel in Sarasota.
Thank you Sir. Some nice touches there making the house user friendlier!
Sam's house in Sarasota
enjoyed the stay at Sam's house; nice facility; well cared for property; good central location; would return for another visit in the future.
The only negative was the huge number of bugs at the front of the house. Luckily they did not come in the house. We enjoyed our stay. Thank you.
Thanks Rita -- I should have told you that we exclusively use the side door and for that reason the front door is blocked off. Those bugs reside in the honeysuckle tree at the front and stay right there - thankfully as you put it. We got rid of them for you.
You will not be at a loss for things to occupy you in the Sarasota Area. Visit numerous beaches at Siesta Key, Nokomis and Venice; infamous for Sharks teeth..!! YIKES. There are plenty of local as well as chain restaurants. Shopping is plentiful -- or just while your time away...
For amazing, if somewhat pricey fare try Rossiters in Palmer's Ranch. Worth checking out also is the Ringling Museum with it's beautiful grounds , restaurant; as well as the theatre closeby. Downtown is an evening in itself. Burns Corner has an artsy feel and cool movie theater.
