About Ronald Looney

After spending 16 years with Merrill Lynch as a Branch Manager I retired from Wall street and set out to open my own business. I returned to my native town of Springfield Mo and built a 500 unit student housing portfolio. After 16 years of running University Properties, I started moving assets to the NNN leasing market AND vacation rentals...specifically Siesta Key, FL. Its the best rental real estate you can do, as the clients are the best, and your providing a great product in a wonderful setting.

Ronald Looney purchased this house in 2014

Why Ronald Looney chose Florida South West

This property was boarded up when I found it into 2013. "Lost" off the books of a major bank in 2008, it was begging for restoration. I love rehab projects, and this home had great bones, but lots of neglect. As usual as most projects, it ran way over budget, but it was a lot of fun to bring it back to life. We are very pleased to offer it on a very selected basis when we are not occupying it.

What makes this house unique

Very near the beach, walk to village, heated pool and canal setting

Perfect for our family

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home... This house could not have fit our needs any better. Very up-to-date, spacious, and comfortable - felt like home right away. The distance to town and the beach was perfect - easy for many walks to the beach in the morning and for sunsets, easy to get to bars, breakfast spots, and shops. We had rental cars, but rarely needed to use them to get around town. We never ended up needing the extra parking spot on the beach due to the short walk and the fact that the pool was so wonderful (it kept us home many days). We rented kayaks for the week from a local shop, which we highly recommend - we saw pods of dolphin and manatee. A big thanks to Ron for answering questions throughout the week, being incredibly accommodating with our arrival time, and putting together a great vacation home for us!

Very well appointed property in an excellent location.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location within walking distance to the lively village and amazing beach. Having a parking slot available at the beach and provision of chairs, shades etc was a real bonus. The Sarasota area also has many activities and sites of interest within a short drive.

The property is very well equipped and in excellent condition. Ron was also an extremely helpful and supportive owner.

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six enjoyed our stay at this home. The appliances are all high end. The house had everything we needed and more. It was also stocked with extras most rentals don't have. Simple things like detergent, paper towels, toilet paper and kitchen condiments were all provided. The pool was wonderful and the outside was tranquil! We will be back!

We LOVED it!

  • 5 of 5

We had wonderful vacation at the Featherbed Lane property. We all had space to call our own, as well as spacious areas to gather as a group. The proximity to town and the beach was a treat, and we barely moved our cars! The house was immaculate and basically new, as were the appliances! We ate in for most of the week, but certainly enjoyed the restaurants in town for snacks and cocktails!! The Hub (I think that is the name!) was a favorite as well as the oyster bar. Friendly staff, and great food!! We would eagerly recommend the house to family and friends and would love to be able to stay there again!

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for one week with our parents and 12 month old son. The house was perfect for our beach vacation! It was very spacious with plenty of bedrooms, bathrooms and TVs for everyone. We particularly enjoyed cooking in the kitchen and grilling outside. The house was stocked with tons of pantry items, dishes and utensils. We ate outside under the cool shade everyday. Our son loved the pool and little fountain. The house was in a great location; we were able to walk to tons of restaurants and shops. It was also very convenient having a reserved parking spot right at the beach. The owner was extremely accommodating and very responsive to all of our questions. We highly recommend this house!
