About Carrie Darby

We are from Columbus, OH. We purchased our home in May 2014 because our immediate family already lived on the island. Basically, we had been crashing at their homes way too often, and it was time we bought our own place, hence our duplex. We live in side A, and rent side B (1325SF, 3bed, 2bath w/ exclusive use of the pool). We are very laid back, and will not intrude on your vacation, but are here if you need us.

Nice house, but a few issues

  • 3 of 5

We just finished our week at this house, and we actually left a day early. There are many, many great things about this house:

- Carrie, the owner, is fabulous! She tried to help with our issues, was very friendly, and was very non-intrusive.

-The pool is great!!!

- Well-stocked kitchen

Now, there are some things that were not so great...

-The walk to the beach is not so short. There is public parking at the end of 52nd street, and we used that.

- Our biggest issue was the air conditioning. We set it on 72-75 degrees, and during the day it was 81-86 degrees in the house, no matter what we set it on. The a/c never worked for us during the day, only at night. Carrie tried to fix it and unfortunately, it just never worked properly, except at night. It could have been because it was 95-99 outside each day.

- The other problem we had was the beds/pillows. The pillows were very thin, so bring your own pillow if you like a firm or fuller pillow.

This is a nice house, it just unfortunately did not meet our needs.

Excellent Property and Accommodating Owners!

  • 5 of 5

Background: We are two families travelling together. My sister and I spent a lot of time in Florida on family vacations when we were younger and thought it would be nice to start a tradition where we each bring our own families to bond and create more memories. On my side, we have two young children under the age of 3 and my sister and brother-in-law have three children under the age of 12.

Communication: From the beginning Carrie was an excellent help in walking through the purchase/payment process and providing all the necessary answers to our questions. During out stay we didn't have to reach out to her much, but when we did, we received a prompt response.

Arrival: The house and pool were in great condition. All the beds were in good condition and starter supplies were left for us.

Stay: We enjoyed the pool and short walks to the beach, a lot. The supplies/toys left in the barn made things super easy for us since we were travelling from Michigan and had limited space. The kids loved playing on the beach and swimming in the pool. The area was beautiful and has easy access to restaurants, grocery stores, and shops. Additionally, we made day treks to different beaches, which made for fun adventures.

Overall Feel: We had plenty of room for our families. The kids occupied the bunk room while the grown ups use the two perfect sized rooms. The kitchen worked to our advantage as we didn't eat out more than a few times. The back patio was perfectly situated as we ate by the pool side and played games at night.

All in all, a perfect get-a-way. Thank you again!!

Simply but tastefully furnished. Very comfortable for us, our dog and friends that came to stay. Ideal location on the island so that one could walk to the beach, restaurants and shops. Owner very helpful with any of our questions. Already booked again for next year - we loved it that much!

Great Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place for a family vacation and pets are welcome. We overpacked.This house is well equipped with everything from tons of towels and beach chairs to pool toys! It is hidden behind lush bamboo palms and hibiscus bushes to give you a cozy sense of privacy. It's not on the beach, but it is easy to walk to it, as are stores and a few restaurants.

We all had a fantastic time and look to return next year! The entire area is quaint and beachy and a hidden gem in vacation locales. From Anna Maria to Sarasota there are places to explore and enjoy! Also, the owner is very accessible and gives a quick response to any questions.
