tired! needs lots of updating -
initially there were broken blinds, food left from previous tenant, few towels, no extra sheets, no cleaning supplies (which we had to buy) - sliding glass door had backward screen, all pots were either rusted or damaged, glass ware, dishes, utensils were few and mismatched - supposed to get a tv for the bedroom but did not happen - refrigerator was NOT frost free - the owner was supposed to be in the facility on January 15 but did not come to Florida until the third week in February - he tried to correct what he could - the location, cable, heat/air(which had to be repaired) and WiF were all good - because we paid a substantial amount of money and now the price has been lowered for the next 2020 season , we are requesting a monetary compensation for what was supposed to be a stress-free vacation - Thank you!
Good, but needs improvements.
This is a very nice apartment. But it needs some improvements. The gas grill below is faulty. I tried grilling a steak, but the temperature did not exceed 300 degrees. I had to finish cooking the steak on the stove in the apartment. Not all burners on the stove work. Some light bulbs were burned out. The exhaust fan in the bath room was intolerably loud. There should be a separate switch for it or it should be shut off. The microwave was difficult to operate. It should be replaced. The entrance door could not be opened from the outside if someone locked it from the inside. We had only one key, an inconvenience.
Gino was a friendly manager and he tried to help. I enjoyed speaking Polish with him.
With the suggested improvements the apartment should be excellent.
Thank you, Jacob Opper
You can’t beat the location of this apartment. It’s just a couple of blocks from the beach and an easy walk to all the restaurants and boutiques at St. Armand’s Circle. It’s also a very good value in a pricey area. We didn’t get to meet the host Gino in person but he was very responsive. We will definitely be back.
Excellent value. Superb location!
We booked this on short notice and weren’t sure what we were getting into, but we were pleasantly surprised!! This was the perfect spot for our family. The unit was clean and had plenty of space for our family of 4. What we loved most was the short walk to Lido Beach and that we were even within walking distance to St. Armand’s circle!
Very comfortable apartment, very close ( 5 minute walk) to Lido Beach. Also very easy walk to St Armand's circle. The apartment had all of the amenities that we needed and included a on site washer and dryer which were free to use for the guests. The owner was very responsive to any questions. Will definitely book this again on our next trip to Sarasota.
We enjoyed our stay at Gino's Place. It was close to the beach, pool, restaurants, and events. Most of the folks staying in the apartments went out for meals every day. We, however, cook. The kitchen facilities were adequate and everything worked except the microwave which shorted out at the end of our stay. It was replaced quickly. Kitchen storage was good as was the new furniture. The other guests at the facility were very friendly. There was no loud talking or parties going on. It was quiet most of the time.
