About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4

You rent a condo and get the feeling of an elegant, spacious luxury villa! Welcome to Los Lagos with rural mediterranean Spanish look, located next to Ashton Lakes Condos and near to the famous Siesta Key Beach, the pearl of Sarasota. An elegant 2/2 ground floor, lakefront, end unit throughout bright and airy. Large rooms (gross area 1540 sq ft=143 m2, living area 1320 sq ft=123 m2), large (22*10 ft) east facing screened lanai (porch) accessible from the living room and from the master bedroom. The place is huge, not the usual small, crowded vacation rental. Be lulled to sleep by the sound of a huge fountain just outside your window. Lake view from all bedrooms and the living room. Fully tiled floors in pastel color, walk in closet, fitted wardrobs, detached garage. Unwind with a grill party on the private screened lanai overlooking the Sunnyside Lake. Beautiful Spanish colonial revival architecture, wrought iron details. Welcome to the house called Casa Barcelona which is the Jewel of Los Lagos condominium in Sarasota!

Master bedroom with king-size bed, second bedroom with two separate twin beds.

Please take into consideration that the area is not completely safe for unsupervised small children as neither the lakes nor the pool is guarded and the main gate is open to a traffic road. It is a walled, but not gated community. The condo is on ground floor, easily accessible with wheelchair, rollator or baby pushchair.

Appliances: Dishwasher, Dryer, Exhaust Fan, Hot Water Electric, Kitchen Sink Grinder, Microwave, Single Oven Range, Refrigerator, Washer, Toaster Oven, Filtered Drinking Water Tap, Water Boiler.

Oversized Living Room/Dining Room/Breakfest Bar Combo where dolphin statues bearing up the elegant glass tables. Open Floor Plan, Split Bedroom. One bathroom with shower, one with bath tub. Fully equipped kitchen with breakfast bar. Luxury furnishing everywhere, mild pastel colors dominate the furniture, the tiles enhancing the Mediterranean aura. Generous lanai directly at the edge of the lake, your own heron is fishing just a yard from your breakfast table. There is a clubhouse (including a small kitchen) which could be reserved for private events ($250 security deposit) without disturbing the neighbours with your late-night party. The condo is quiet, thanks to the verdant vegetation, the high sound protection wall, the two fountains, the noise from the busy Clark road (FL72) at the entry gate is not a nuisance. Two fountains are working just in front of the window between 9 AM and 9 PM drowning all the barely noticeable noises into the relaxing sound of splashing water.

For the very improbable rainy hours a collection of popular board games is offered. Bring your favorite DVDs as all 3 flatscreen TVs has its own DVD player. We are offering a few DVDs.

The entry gate is often guarded by an American bittern. You have your vacation in an open air bird sanctuary. Be sure you take your binocular and camera with you.

After a short walk to the corner of Clark and Swift Rd. you will find a shopping complex with CVS Pharmacy, Winn-Dixie, Dollar General, Merchants Pointe, American Grill, Hardware Store, Sweetbay Liquor Store, Puccinis Restaurant, China Wok Takeout, Sweet Berries just to mention some.

The nearest bank is BofA at 3450 Clark Rd.

Nearest library is the Gulf Gate Public Library 7112 Curtis Ave. hours: Mon/Tue/Wen 10-8, Thu/Fri/Sat 10-5.

If you are friend of your cellphone than the new "Hospitality" app will guide you around, otherwise a binder in the condo gives you useful tips.

About Los Lagos Sarasota Rentals LLC, manager: Susanna

A retired computer consultant married to a marine biologist want to share their exclusive hideaway with other people dreaming about a quiet garden, a lake belonging to the Ashton Lake complex with rich bird life, the beautiful Siesta Key Beach just around the corner, the boat life, the scuba diving, the snorkeling. We play golf, there are more than 50 golf courses around, anybody can find a course which suits the own abilities and wallet.

The owner is the limited liability company Los Lagos Sarasota Rental LLC

we are just managing the rental business, with you, our guest in mind.

Los Lagos Sarasota Rentals LLC, manager: Susanna purchased this condo in 2014

Why Los Lagos Sarasota Rentals LLC, manager: Susanna chose Florida South West

Centrally located in Sarasota, near to everything, especially to Siesta Key Beach (4 miles, 6 km 8 minutes driving). The selling argument, although, is the vacation-friendly environment of Los Lagos, you live inside a quiet bird sanctuary, an opulent vegetation, enjoying the Mediterranean architecture, the calm, quiet atmosphere.

What makes this condo unique

We fell in love directly at the first visit. The natural Sunny Side Lake, the lush vegetation, the house in colonial Spanish revival architecture promised peace of mind. The generous space inside, the luxury furniture is inviting for a memorable vacation at a very affordable price. We do not like crowded concrete block houses arranged in straight lines, in artificial, man-made gardens. In Los Lagos the roads are winding, the red brick houses are little different from each other and arranged harmonically adjusted to the gardens topography, to the natural Florida vegetation. You got to go back 50 years in time and several hundred miles to the South to find similar architecture.

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a very pleasant stay at this condo. It is located on a large road, but you don’t hear any noise because you are in the back of the development. You are 2 miles from Siesta Key and another mile to the public beach on Siesta Key. Winn Dixie as well as Publix and CVS and Walgreens and many other retail places are very near by – actually you can walk to Winn Dixie and CVS! There is even a Trader Joe’s not far away.

The unit had everything you could need, including an ice maker. It has a lanai on a pond, but it was too hot to sit out there when we were there. There are plenty of towels and sheets as well as dishes and glasses and pots and pans. The beds are new and comfortable. The furnishings are nice and there are 3 TV’s. It is a very bright and pleasant place to stay and we would definitely stay there again. Plus there is beautiful bird life right outside your door.

Ferien wie im Paradies

  • 5 of 5

Die Wohnung ist perfekt eingerichtet, alles was man für entspannte Ferien braucht ist vorhanden, sogar Strandmöbel zum Mitnehmen an den Siesta Key. Wir waren jeden Abend auf der Terrasse gesessen und haben den Vögeln und Schildkröten zugesehen und haben in den 16 Tagen keinen Fernseher eingeschaltet. Alle Geschäfte sind ganz nah, die Ferienanlage ist wunderschön, die anderen Hausbewohner sind alle sehr nett und das Vermieterehepaar sehr zuvorkommend. Wir werden auf jeden Fall wiederkommen !!

Sehr schönes Apartment in einer ruhigen und parkähnlichen Anlage. Das Haus "Casa Barcelona" liegt etwas weiter von der Hauptstraße entfernt, so ist kein Lärm zu hören. Alles ist sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet und was zum täglichen Gebrauch benötigt wird ist vorhanden. Bis zum nächsten Supermarkt sind es nur 5 Gehminuten entfernt. Auch gibt es einen deutschen Butcher ganz in der Nähe. Zum Strand sind es mit dem Auto 10 Minuten, keine Park-/ und Strandgebühren. Obwohl ich allein in der Wohnung gelebt hatte, fühlte ich mich sehr beschützt. Die Nachbarn waren sehr zuvorkommend und hilfsbereit. Ich hatte 4 sehr schöne Wochen im April 2016 verlebt und freue mich schon jetzt auf das nächste Jahr.

No Snow----Yeah

  • 5 of 5

Los Lagos is a beautiful immaculate retreat and was furnished with all the items needed for a home away from home. I enjoyed the setting,with the water and the birds, so relaxing. I was here from January 7- March 5, 2016. There were some cool days ...but no snow and not below zero.

All activities, shopping, beaches and restaurants are easily accessible and all neighbors were very friendly

I will be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you dear Snowbird for your kind words. We were green of envy during the winter. On the other hand we are really happy when our Guest has a great time in this water palace as Los Lagos is. Welcome back any time but please hurry with the booking otherwise it is hard to find a hole in the calendar.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Los Lagos for three weeks from March 5-March 26, 2016. The place is immaculate and the owner goes out of his way to make sure that you have a wonderful stay. Every morning we ate breakfast on the Lanai overlooking the lake and watched the birds and turtles from our Lanai. The place was plenty big and could easily be shared by two couples. It is convenient to all beaches, (about 10-15 minutes depending on traffic) but my advise is too leave early for Siesta Beach since parking at the public lot is at a premium. We are seriously thinking of staying there next year. Great job Lajos and Susannah!

Two snow birds from the Northeast.

Wonderful Spot

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place and we so enjoyed our stay. The condo is immaculate, beautifully furnished and with a feeling of seclusion even though it is just off busy Clark Road. The lanai was our favorite spot to relax. Just a step away from a lake with beautiful birds, and an abundance of turtles to feed. The location is excellent with easy access to the beach, shopping, restaurants, etc. The neighbors were friendly and the owners are very accomodating. I can recommend Los Lagos without hesitation and we hope to be able to enjoy it again.

Siesta Key, #1 beach in US!
Car: recommended

Located in central Sarasota at the Ashton Lakes area, near (4 miles, 6 km, 8 minutes driving) to the marvelous Siesta Key Beach where the Crystal Sand Sculpturing competition is arranged each year. The "Beach Access 12" is even nearer, 2 miles. The rich cultural life of Sarasota is famous, let's just mention the Asolo Repertory Theatre or the Van Wezel Theatre. Snowbirds gather here for the mild winter. During the summer the sun-lovers, the families with children seek here a hideaway. The abundant djungle garden of the Los Lagos condo complex, the busy water birds, turtles, otters inhabiting the two lakes, the small quiet swimming pool, inviting for a relaxing joy for a modern, stressful person.

The nearest library is Gulf Gate Public Library, 7112 Curtiss Ave phone 941-861-1230 hours Mon/Tue/Wed 10-8 Thu/Fri/Sat 10-5 Sarasota Pavilion is a big shopping complex 6543 S Tamiami Trl (crossing with FL72-Clark-Stickney point Rd.). Strip Mall at Riverview Plaza (crossing Swift and Proctor Rd.). But the shop on the corner is Winn Dixie in 5 minutes walking distance from Los Lagos.
