About the property

*** Newly remodeled historic property in the heart of Laurel Park, SARASOTA'S ONLY TRUE WALK-TO-DOWNTOWN NEIGHBORHOOD ***

*** Now accepting reservations for 2016-2017 High Season! ***

Three Palms Bungalow (named for the three 75 foot Washingtonia palms in front) is an immaculately restored and updated 1925 wood bungalow in Laurel Park, one of Sarasota's oldest, most charming, and best located residential neighborhoods.

Step out the front door and you can WALK...not drive...in less than 10 minutes to ALL of the following: Downtown Main Street, Sarasota Bayfront Park and Marina Jacks (with available kayak, paddleboat, aqua cycle, sailboat, powerboat, and waverunner rentals), Burns Court Historic District (only 1 block away), dozens of restaurants, the Saturday downtown farmer's market, shopping, art galleries, spas and salons, the symphony, the opera, the downtown public library, the 12 court Payne Park tennis center, two movie theaters, Selby Botanical Gardens, Towles Court art district, Whole Foods Market, Starbucks, and much more. A little farther away, but still reachable by bike or a 10 minute drive are the shops and restaurants of St. Armand's Circle (3 miles) and the white quartz sands and clear blue waters of Lido Beach (3.5 miles) and Siesta Key Beach (7 miles). ***Note that Siesta Key was voted the #1 beach in the entire USA in 2011. It is only a 10-15 minute drive away and the parking is free!

The house retains all of its 1925 charm, but with many of today's modern amenities. It is a 982 square foot two bedroom/one bath wood bungalow, with 15 foot vaulted ceiling in the large living room. The kitchen has brand new Caesarstone countertops, all new appliances, a two seat countertop breakfast bar, and round four seat dining table surrounded by large sun filled windows. The all new spa inspired bathroom features subway tiled floors and walls and an all glass walk-in shower.

We are a couple who reside in Northern Virginia, just outside of Washington DC.

Lisa and J.D. Gordman purchased this bungalow in 2011

Why Lisa and J.D. Gordman chose Downtown

We chose our Sarasota,FL property for it's 'walkability' to everything: Within 5 -10 minutes you can walk to all of the Main Street shops and restaurants, the Farmer's Market, the Bay Front, Selby Gardens, the Theatre/Opera, and Historic Burns Square.

The famous Siesta Key Beach is just a short 10 minute drive! Rated #1 BEACH in the United States! The sand is PURE white and the water is CRYSTAL CLEAR!

What makes this bungalow unique

'Walkability' to everything!!!!!

SIESTA KEY BEACH:

TRULY the BEST BEACH we have ever seen in the United States!

Turnkey Bungalow

  • 5 of 5

We needed to stay in Sarasota for 2.5 months and we found the perfect place. The great thing about the Bungalow is that it had everything we needed when we walked through the door. It was turnkey so to speak. We appreciated the amenities such as a washer and dryer, a grill in the wonderful patio, great air conditioning and ceiling fans throughout, a terrific TV with robust cable service, fast and dependable Wi-Fi, all the necessary kitchenware and appliances, etc. The only slight negative in the kitchen was no sink garbage disposal. The bedrooms were not large but more than adequate and the beds were very comfortable.

We felt the location was ideal. The neighborhood was quiet and friendly. The Bungalow is only blocks away from the harbor, great restaurants, shops, salons, workout & yoga classes, and a tennis club, etc.

Lastly, the owners were always accessible and easy to work with. If there was ever an issue, they were on it immediately, which was greatly appreciated. We were very happy during our stay and would highly recommend this rental for anyone wanting to stay in the Sarasota area.

Modern updates, old charm, all the amenities and great location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here for almost 3 weeks in July 2017! It's newly updated with all of the modern amenities and decor...but holds true to the character and charm of an old bungalow. We loved being a short walk to delicious restaurants in the city and minutes from the beaches. The owners were reachable and in touch the entire stay, and the home was fully stocked with everything we could have needed -- from beach towels and chairs to olive oil and laundry detergent. We will definitely stay here again when we're back in Sarasota!

Attractive, comfortable, and centrally located

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Palm Cottage. The house was spotless and as attractive as the pictures portray it. The furniture is so comfortable we would like to have brought it home. The neighbourhood is quiet except for some construction noise during the daytime, from a few properties being redeveloped. It is also excellent for walking, with friendly neighbours and quiet streets. It's an easy walk to restaurants, to the cinema home of the Sarasota Film Society, and to downtown. We enjoyed the pleasant, well furnished yard. The owners were easy to reach and responsive when we had questions. The bedrooms are not large, but the house was perfect for the two of us.

Twice Charmed

  • 5 of 5

What a warm and delightful, welcoming feeling we had when my wife and I opened the door for our second stay at Three Palms Bungalow this past winter; we had stayed the first time the year before. The place is very well maintained and thoughtfully stocked with starter supplies and so much more. Everything works as it should - appliances, lights, A/C, gas grill, ceiling fans. It is a pleasure to be inside, or outside in the back yard/ patio. The street is quiet; the Laurel Park neighborhood has a friendly feeling, not only from people we’ve met. One night when we arrived home late, a neighbor had thoughtfully rolled our trash and recycle containers to the pickup spot for us. The location is superb: less than five minutes’ walk to Burns Court with restaurants, art cinema, cafes with evening music, shops. Towles Court, an art and dining destination, is maybe ten minutes’ walk. Main Street with restaurants, megaplex movie theater, and shops is also walking distance. Selby Gardens is also walking distance; we joined and love to spend time looking out over the bay with a cup of coffee and a book. We walk our talk on all this; we have made arrangements to stay next year. I wrote this review without looking back to see what I wrote last year; I still agree with it completely. –Robert L

This Bungalow is a perfect vacation get-away

  • 5 of 5

We love this Bungalow. This is our second year here and we are looking forward to our third stay next year. This very comfortably decorated Bungalow is combined with all the amenities you need for a perfect stay. It is situated in the very interesting Laurel Park. Most of all, this area offers location, location, location. We have been exploring the various attractions for the last two years. We can't say enough about the owners Lisa and J.D.. who provide helpful written information needed for the various amenities in the Bungalow.
