About the property

2 bedrooms. 2 bathrooms. Sleeps 4

Lovely, spacious villa in friendly Village des Pins just minutes away from Siesta Key Beach voted #1 beach in the USA in 2011 and again in 2014! All on one level with attached garage. There is a full size washer and dryer in the unit, a luxurious king size bed in master bedroom and twin beds in second bedroom. Free high speed internet, cable T.V. and phone. Comfortable furniture with flat screen t.v's in living room and master bedroom. We remodeled our kitchen a few years ago so we bought new appliances and installed granite counter tops. Kitchen is very well equipped and we even have an electric kettle for those of you who must have a 'real cuppa'!! We have jrecently replaced all the dishes and cookware in the villa and have just completely remodeled both bathrooms.NEW PHOTOS WILL BE POSTED SOON. Village des Pins is a 25 acre park like setting with just 112 well spaced single story villas. There are lighted tennis courts, a huge heated swimming pool, hot tub, shuffleboard and community barbecue grills (gas and charcoal) outside and a beautiful clubhouse with pool table, TV, library and games inside. Many activities during the 'snowbird' season.

9 minutes walk to Macy's door in Sarasota Square Mall! Ample shopping within a short driving distance. 15 minutes to downtown Sarasota with its hotels, cultural activities, theater and many restaurants and a short drive to the famous St. Armand's Circle with shopping, restaurants and Lido Key Beach. For the golf lover there are 30 championship golf courses in and around Sarasota but there are also courses for those of you who prefer something less challenging!

The owners live in Sarasota and it is reassuring to know we are just a few minutes away should you need any help or assistance.

About Jane Jacobs

Born and raised in the UK Ross and Jane spent 10 years living in Canada before settling in the Chicago area for 30 years. We fell in love with Sarasota 15 years ago and are so happy to be finally living here permanently. We live 5 minutes drive from the villa so are close by in case of any problems.

Jane Jacobs purchased this villa in 2001

Why Jane Jacobs chose Sarasota

We searched the Sarasota area to find the right property to be our retirement home. We looked at condos on the beach, villas on the golf course but as soon as we drove into Village des Pins we did not look any further. The 112 villas isurrounded by park like grounds with a fantastic pool was our dream and no other property came close.

What makes this villa unique

location, location, location! We are so close to everything in Sarasota and the surrounding area. A quiet little enclave with only 112 homes with lots of space inside and out. This can truly be your home away from home and our repeat guests feel exactly that, we have many families who return every year for their Sarasota top up!

Relaxing stay in Sarasota

  • 4 of 5

We are a pair of seniors who travel twice a year to USA .The villa is perfect for a relaxing holiday either by the pool or on the beach . There are three restaurants within easy walking distance or you can dine in . The villa has a very well equipped with all kitchen and comfortable lounge and two bedrooms . We really enjoyed our time in Sarasota & would certainly return if the opportunity presents itself .

Dave and Sue April 2017

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely house and has been very thoughtfully stocked with everything you could possibly need from beach equipment to bikes ,even golf clubs .there are games and a big box of information about the area and what to do.we were there for 3 weeks and still have lots to do next year when we go back.

the house is very clean and comfortable with an enormous bed ,a large living/dining room and a separate kitchen/diner that is very well stocked.the integrated garage made unpacking the shopping or beach equipment very easy - straight into the kitchen.

the pool on site is a good size and there were plenty of loungers.

lots of supermarkets nearby and plenty of places to eat out.

looking forward to going again

Everything that we needed was there. And the location of the property to shopping, I75 and the best beaches was excellent. We enjoyed the fact that we could walk to the pool . Updates were as stated. Thank you.
