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.

Why Elicia Viola, EMV Ringling, LLC chose Sarasota

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.

Superb Stay

  • 5 of 5

Elicia is a fantastic host. Her home is clean, easily accessible, spacious, and super accommodating for large groups. We had a large group of people, and our stay here was fantastic. We were lucky to be accepted as guest at this beautiful home. If you find yourself scratching your head on where to choose your stay, look no further, this home has it all.

Family holiday a superb house and owner

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect holiday for us 6 adults and a 18 month toddler the house was more than we could have wished for everything you could want, close enough to all the things you could want to have a stress free holiday and to top it of a wonderful owner who was very kind and generous.and lovely to communicate with which added greatly to our experience in Sarasoto, we had been due to arrive on the 19th September after a week in Marathon on the Keys but due to the awful accommodation there Elicia saved us allowing us to travel early to the house, what a difference people who you have never met can make to your holiday.

Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

We are a blended family of six and recently stayed at the Viola's beach house in Sarasota, FL. Everyone found the accommodations to be extremely comfortable and very user friendly. The kids made good use of the pool area which was clean and well kept. The property as a whole was clean and fit our needs very well, plus it's close to many attractions that can keep you busy for hours when you tire of the pool or just need a change of pace.

Great location and wonderful owner!

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate to stay at this property the first week of May and had a wonderful time! The pictures of the house are accurate. Some parts of the house are a little dated but you cannot beat the price and location! It was clean and she called to make sure everything looked good and to see if we had any questions or concerns. We had 3 adults and 5 children and had plenty of room for everyone. The kids (and adults!) really enjoyed the screened in pool area. It was so nice to come back after a day at the beach and have a nice big pool area for the kids to swim while we grilled supper or while the baby napped. The fenced in backyard has cactuses, Palm trees, spanish moss, aloe vera and other tropical plants. It's really pretty and peaceful. Lido beach and St. Armands Circle are an easy 10-15 minute drive away and Siesta Key beach is a 20 minute drive away (although it feels faster because you have such a beautiful view to look at as you drive! The area is gorgeous!) and you're minutes away from Walmart and restaurants. We also loved taking the short walk to the bay. The kids had a great time looking for shells and finding sea life! And we loved looking at the huge, gorgeous houses! Elicia was wonderful to work with from the beginning to the end. She was more than helpful; even sending extra pictures and references to call so we that felt very comfortable with our choice! We hope to return again! It was hard to leave! Thanks, Elicia!

Owner's Response: Johanna, Wow! thanks for the kind words. We try our hardest to provide a great priced home in a great part of Sarasota. Your family based on the fun photos you sent me, seemed to enjoy the area to its fullest. I especially loved the pictures of your 4 kids all swimming in their clothes in the Bay beach near the house. I pictured you all went shelling and then the next thing you know..........hope to have you back someday. Elicia

Sarasota Dreaming

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in this lovely home for 10 days in April. The home is in a great location close to the beach, downtown, museum and all of Sarasota attractions.

The house has all the amenities of home and the pool and lanai were heavenly. We enjoyed all of our meals on the lanai as the neighborhood is very quiet.

The owners are always accessible by telephone and the home is overall very comfortable.

We highly recommend this home and look forward to returning.
