About Robert Mastrippolito and Tina Molnar

Together we are a great team. Robert is a Community Association Resident Manager and Ernesztina has a Service Business taking care of other peoples properties, so rehabbing a home to rent was a natural. Without friends and family help and support the house would not be as glorious as it is.

Robert Mastrippolito and Tina Molnar purchased this house in 2014

Why Robert Mastrippolito and Tina Molnar chose Sarasota

We were looking for a home in Sarasota to retire to (quite a few years in the future) and when we saw this one we loved it. Not for how it looked but for the potential of how it could be. There will be more improvements, including a two car garage, in the future. It's located close to everything Sarasota has to offer, but still in a relaxing quiet area. The most 'noise' you hear are the bells from the local church on Sunday.

What makes this house unique

Perfect Location, Relaxing, Peaceful neighborhood.

We love this place.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Robert & Ernesztina. We are really enjoying our stay in your house what a fantastic place, the photo's were good but now we are here its even better.

The house is immaculate, we have visited Florida about 23 times now over the years and this is one of the best accommodations we have stayed in everything is so very very clean and the kitchen is so well provided with all the utensils you could ever wish for. I am in the plumbing and bathroom refurb business myself and can see you have put a lot of thought time and effort into this project.

You mentioned about a 2nd property that has or will have a pool, do you have any details available and is it listed on VRBO yet, if so could you let me know the property ref no. We will be back In Sarasota about the same time again next year and it will more than likely be for a 2 week period.

Thank you for the fruit and bottle of wine you provided on arrival we have got 1 apple ,1 orange left for tomorrow i'm afraid afraid the wine didn't last beyond the first night

We will be leaving at 10am Wednesday morning for our last 2 nights in Clearwater, don't know if we will see you again before we leave but hope we meet again next year



Many Thanks David & Susan

The home was perfect!! We had a great time!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for us. We had 4 people, so the 3 bedroom, 2 bath split arrangement of the rooms was ideal. It gave us lots of privacy. The home was in perfect condition. Much nicer than many of the bed and breakfast places that we have stayed in. It came with everything we needed, including all the little things that you have at your own home. We needed nothing. Great kitchen for family cooking events. It is in a very comfortable neighborhood.

It was only a short drive to the beaches. That was never a problem. We would definitely stay there again.

Just the right place

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a place that would accommodate 4 people comfortably and also 2 or 3 others for gatherings in the evening following a day of meetings. It fit the bill perfectly. Robert and Tina met us in person at 10:30 pm to orient us to their lovely home; as that is what it fells like. Everything we needed was there and all of us said we would bring our families back to stay here the next time we were in the area.

Loved our stay

  • 5 of 5

It was even better than we anticipated. Sarasota was our home for 43 years and we know it well. The location is excellent for virtually any activity. We were most impressed with the almost immaculate cleanliness and comfort of the home. On past vacations to the music festival, we have rented on Lido Beach, Siesta Key and several places in town. This was, by far, the very best. The owners take great pride in their property and are most accommodating.

We certainly look forward to returning.

Perfect Florida home!

  • 5 of 5

The home is absolutely beautifully renovated and all you could want/need from a Florida vacation! However, the service truly comes from Robert. When we booked the home, we let them know that our flight arrived late. Of course, we ended up having numerous flight delays. My fiance and I didn't arrive to the house until 3:00 am so we had my parents meet Robert instead....still not until almost 1:00 am in the morning. Despite the change in communication, he greeted my parents with kindness and open arms! There was a bottle of wine waiting along with fruit and coffee for the morning. The home was immaculately clean with all amenities one could need in any home. The beds were comfortable and I felt at home for the four nights my family stayed celebrating my graduation. We would absolutely stay again! Thank you!

Owner's Response: When you are ready to come to Sarasota in the future, just let us know. All the details you enjoyed, (right down to the ironed sheets!) were painstakingly done by Tina, who you did not get to meet. Together we feel our guests deserve a high level of service and clean amenities, just as we would like when we travel. Thank you for choosing our house for your stay and you are welcome anytime.
