Our stylish 2,200 sq.ft. home has been decorated in beach cottage style, an eclectic mix of shabby chic and vintage pieces. It sits high on a large lot in a private road of only 6 homes close to Phillippi Creek with all its wonderful birds and wildlife. Drive or cycle to Siesta Key, America's No 1 Beach for several years now, (10 minutes by car) or visit the fabulous new Mall at UTC,many designer names as well as all America's favourite brands. The many varied restaurants of Tamiami Trail are equally close by, many offering take out service. Or simply relax in your own tropical paradise, sparkling heated saltwater pool (less chemicals, kinder to eyes and skin), fully screened in with al fresco eating, large gas grill for the excellent local seafood, and a spacious screened lanai! (No bugs or other unwelcome visitors!)The pool is not overlooked and the whole yard is surrounded by lush tropical landscaping.
Our fabulous beach: http://www.cnn.com/2011/TRAVEL/05/27/best.beaches
For several years Siesta Beach has been voted America's Best Beach and confirmed what we have known for years. The fine white quartz crystal sand has healing powers and is home to many nesting birds and sea turtles. The aquamarine ocean is warm by May/June and remains so until November. A regular morning walk on this stunning beach or a sunset shared with a friend or lover is a magical experience, never to be forgotten. The public beach has full facilities and is busy and popular, we prefer the north end of the key where the beach is tranquil and you can spend hours with a book and enjoy a more secluded experience. The village is only a short walk away with full facilities.
Bedrooms: All our bedrooms have fine linens and comfortable beds, the bathrooms are all white with tile floors and all new fittings. We have cupboards full of towels and sheets, duvets for the winter, sufficient extra bedding for 6 to sleep in comfort.
We have a cot and high chair.
Kitchen and dining: When we stay in the house we entertain our many local friends and family and can easily feed 8 on a regular basis, we have lots of pots and pans and crockery/cutlery! Unlike an average rental this is our family retreat and with 6 children it has to be on a large scale! You can park 5 or 6 cars on the drive and most guests agree there is little need or desire to go anywhere once you settle around the pool. Our only problem is we get too relaxed here and never make all the trips we intended! Our rates are quoted in UK £ and include taxes, electric pool heat, cable and WiFi. We accept US $ checks but all other international payments must be made by secure online banking, Paypal or Online Payments.
A minimum rental of 1 month may apply during Jan-April at owner's discretion. At Christmas we ask for a minimum 2 week rental.
There is a cleaning fee of $150 which can be paid in $ upon departure or deducted from the security/damage deposit, just ask the owner.

What an amazing vacation! This house was perfect and in a great location. The kids played in the pool from morning to night. The house was equipped with everything we needed. The beach was a hop skip and jump away and it was beautiful. Kids played with the neighbors and everyone was so nice. We will definitely be booking this home again.
Thank you for your kind review Nancy, Annalise really enjoyed having you and your family next door. So glad your kids played out on our little dead end lane, I love seeing the kids on their bikes and playing basketball after school, there are not too many neighbourhoods for them to do this in safety these days. We look forward to your return.

Second visit even better than the first!
This property speaks for itself and gives you the feeling of being near the beach when you are away from the beach! It is maintained to a very high standard and is very clean and tidy. We have stayed in several properties in Sarasota in the past and this one is the best. The pool area feels very private and is not overlooked. Top customer service is also part of the deal. The property is also within a short drive of both Siesta Key and Longboat Key which have amazing beaches and restaurants.
Another Wonderful Stay!
Repeat customers are the best advertising. This is the third year we have had multi-month stays at this property, and we already have reservations for next year. My wife and I enjoy the quiet of the neighborhood and the first floor master suite (no stairs for us). When my daughters and grandchildren came for a week's stay they had a ball in the pool. The new refrigerator, washing machine, and dryer were great additions, and the extra refrigerator in the garage came in handy. We'd be remiss if we didn't mention the wonderful beach, the cultural offerings at Van Wezel and Asolo, and Solorzano's pizza, all just a short drive away. To top it all off, the owner's daughter (who lives next door) is always quick to address any problems which might arise.
Thank you Al, we are so happy that you and Mary choose our home year after year, also pleased that you have a chance to entertain family there as well. Next year the new outdoor shower will be ready for the children too. We're hoping the weather in Endwell warms up for you soon, Susan and Annalise
Beautiful Home from Home
We were fortunate enough to select this wonderful house for the first week of our visit to Florida. We were a party of 4 adults and 2 children. To say we loved the house is an understatement. The photos don't do it justice.
The swimming pool is private and the patio area is beautiful with fairy lights, and the pool light which makes it a magical setting for an evening sat outside.
We corresponded with the owner before our visit and she always answered any questions quickly and honestly.
The surrounding area is fantastic with some of the best beaches we have ever visited all within easy driving distance. Everything you could need for a day at the beach was in the garage - just take food and drink !!!
We would definitely book this villa again - our only complaint - it spoilt us for other accommodation !!!
Thank you Susan for allowing us to stay in your little bit of paradise !!!

Great location, very clean,pool was a wonderful asset,
Thank you Darrell, we are glad your anniversary visit was a happy one, like your long marriage. We hope you will choose us again one day, Susan and Annalise.
The house was perfect. High quality bedding, well equipped kitchen, close to shops and wonderful beaches. Pool was heated nicely and the kids spent hours playing in it in the evenings. Plentiful of beach towels and toys. Cooler and beach chairs were also at our disposal. We plan to come back!
Thank you for this kind review Anjelina and we will be so happy to welcome you back with your family.
Only 10 minutes from the fine white sands of the Gulf of Mexico and our award winning beach, http://www.cnn.com/2011/TRAVEL/05/27/best.beaches. Moments from the many fabulous restaurants of the Tamiami Trail. A 20 minute drive will take you to the boutique shopping at St. Armands Key with its fine dining and Lido beach, drive across to Longboat Key and Anna Maria Island for a true Florida Keys experience. The famous Ringling Museum and Mansion, the art galleries of Palm Avenue, the Van Wezel concert hall, orchestra and ballet, the stylish new Selby public library and the many beautiful examples of Spanish architecture dating back to the 1920's all remind us that Sarasota truly is the cultural capital of Florida. However bargain hunters and fashionistas are not forgotten with excellent shopping malls within 10 minutes drive, the fabulous new UTC Mall 20 minutes away and a huge designer discount mall at Ellenton, 30 minutes away. Wildlife enthusiasts will enjoy Jungle Gardens, or a trip to the Myakka River to see the alligators
