About Elicia Viola, EMV Ringling, LLC

We purchased this house in 2013 to rent to our daughter and her friends at the Ringling College of Art and Design. Before the kids moved in, we decided to rent the house to vacationers. We had such a good experience, and received such good feedback, that we are moving our daughter to another house nearby and are opening up the pool house for vacation guests starting in September, 2015.

This house is a great value for couples or families who want to be in the heart of Sarasota, close to all the best that Florida has to offer, without the high cost of a condo on the beach. Walking distance to the bay, and less than 2 miles from St. Armand's Circle.

What makes this house unique

In the middle of a quiet neighborhood, this house has plenty of room to spread out, and plenty of spots to relax: sitting in the comfortable chairs on the deck, sitting in the family room, or lounging in the pool. It is a great place to vacation with family or friends.

Space for everyone!

  • 5 of 5

The house was located central to everything we needed! Beach was a short drive over the Ringling causeway and St Armands (which we totally loved the vibe there!) and not far from Siesta Key beach. Nice and clean and quaint as well! Loved that I came home with clean laundry because of that amenity at the house. Very much a bonus. Elicia was always available when anything popped up and totally wanted our experience in her house and Sarasota to be the best! She allowed us to drop our things off before check in time because of our early arrival to Florida. Great experience with our first time using vrbo....will definitely use it again. Thanks Elicia for our families first trip to Florida being so awesome!

Conveniently located pool house

  • 5 of 5

My husband, small dog, and I spent a very comfortable month of February at the pool house. The house was furnished attractively, and the updated kitchen and bathrooms were very nice. My husband had the pleasure of using the pool and lanai almost daily. I appreciated the convenience of the washer and dryer. The location was convenient to downtown, the beaches, and especially The Ringling. We walked through the neighborhood to the Bay many times.

Wonderful house, great location....

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here -- the house is bigger than it appears in the photos, and it was the ideal size for me and my husband (and dog) to stay and host guests during the month of January. Open layout kitchen works nicely, everything is new, fully equipped. A few aspects of the house are a bit tired, but honestly that just adds to its charm. Location was perfect for us -- near to the city, close to friends, easy to get to the beach. Too cold to swim, but wonderful to sit around the pool and enjoy the sunshine. The owner couldn't have been nicer -- checking in on us to make sure everything was going well. All in all, a great spot!

Wonderful Villa

  • 5 of 5

We have just completed a truly wonderful three week stay in the villa. It is in a perfect location for access to local attractions and Downtown Sarasota. The villa facilities are of a high standard and there is a gorgeous pool right outside the back door. We spent lots of time resting in the sun, cooling in the pool or sitting in the shade of the verandah. A short drive will take you across the bay to Armand Circle and access to a host of beautiful white sandy beaches overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. Elicia, our host, could not have been more helpful and welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble, and she truly wanted to make sure our stay was a good one, and it was. We would definitely come back here if we visit Florida again.

As expected

  • 4 of 5

Although several small issues arose, Elicia was always quick to answer and take care of any issues. The owners are fabulous to work with. It is close enough to amazing beaches and town that everything is at your fingertips. I would definitely stay at their property again. We made a lot of memories and had a lot of fun!!
