Sarasota Vacation! A must stay!
This house is a perfect home for a family to stay in Sarasota. Sandra was perfect to work with and the communication prior to check in and during the stay was great. This was our first trip to the Sarasota and Siesta Key area and we will be back for sure. We look forward to our next oppurtunity to stay at Sandra's house.
Great House Great Location
My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful week of calm quiet walks through Arlington Park as well as enjoying the activities of downtown Sarasota easily accessible by car. It was a short trip to see Siesta Key Beach, but time spent in the house with all of our needs at arms length was just as enjoyable. Thank you for one week of paradise!
Comfortable, Relaxing Cottage!
We enjoyed the house and felt safe and secure. It is convenient to the beaches and to downtown Sarasota. The large fenced-in yard was fun for our two little dogs. The furnishings were nice, including the kitchen supplies and furniture. The space was decorated well and having so many TV options was great. Sandra was very good about a smooth check-in and -out. Very good trip and experience!
A HAPPY HOME HAS NO WORRIES
We had a wonderful week revisiting Sarasota, with comfortable accommodations bordering Arlington Park. The home was pet friendly with a fenced yard, and had everything we could ask for. Time goes by far too fast when you are having a good time. We loved the Florida beaches and the sunshine.
Very pleasant stay. It could not worked out better for us!
The house was clean, exactly as pictures, a little smaller in person. We arrived 2 hrs early and Sanda let us checkin early. The house kitchen has every thing you need. The house is 6 miles away, 15 min drive to Siesta Key Beach. We were guests who didn't want to be bothered and Sandra gaves us our space. Can't wait to return again.
Siesta Key Beach! Welcome to the Siesta Key! -- Located on the pristine shores of the Gulf of Mexico, across the bay from mainland Sarasota, Siesta Key is the perfect destination for a holiday, a season, or a lifetime. Whether and, whether you’re visiting for a week, planning to relocate, or a long-time resident of our beautiful barrier island, here are a couple of helpful things to know. Siesta Key has miles of "the world's finest, whitest sand™", so you’ll want to make time to relax on our world-class beaches, but that’s not all we have to offer. There is parasailing, kayaking, jet skiing, fishing charters, sailing, motorcycles, and Segways. Restaurants ranging from fine dining to casual eateries where flip flops and a cover up are all you’ll need and, it wouldn’t be the Gulf Coast without some great seafood restaurants in all price ranges. Captain Curt's Crab & Oyster Barat 1200 Old Stickney Point Road & Village Cafe 5133 Ocean Blvd. are my personal top 2 favorite on Siesta. Whether novice or expert, there are numerous paddleboarding opportunities in Sarasota County. Paddleboarding in Sarasota County is really fun. This leisure activity is a great way to exercise and see Sarasota County’s beautiful coast. It makes sense that a waterfront community with a tropical climate like Sarasota County would adopt the Hawaii-inspired paddleboarding with such gusto. There is no shortage of companies ready to introduce locals and visitors to the Gulf of Mexico and Sarasota Bay by board. But because a new paddleboard can cost upwards of $1,500, renting is one of the most popular options.
Sarasota Paddleboard Company hosts light-emitting diode (LED) illuminated underwater tours in the Bay and Gulf, which leave before sunset and last two hours.
Siesta Key Paddleboards provides mobile, free equipment delivery, as well as complimentary instruction. This company hosts a Vamo Mangroves Tour of the passages and canals in Little Sarasota Bay, which is teeming with birds, fish, manatees and dolphins. There is a Parade of Homes Tour on the Gulf of Mexico, and a Vamo Road to Midnight Pass Tour across the Bay and through the mangrove canals to a quiet, secluded stretch of Siesta Beach.With all of the water sports and activities close at hand, no matter where you stay in Sarasota you won't need to do the same thing twice.Bird and alligator watching, hiking, biking, fishing, canoeing and kayaking are but a handful of the activities in which Sarasota campers have the opportunity to indulge throughout the year when they escape into the woods of the area's numerous camping destinations.
The Myakka River State Park is one of the area's most popular camping destinations with a range of options from palm log cabin-lodgings (complete with full kitchens and beds) to large campsites equipped with electricity, water and picnic areas to primitive campsites located deep in the woods, where campers hike for miles to access complete solitude and a chance to experience Florida wildlife in its natural setting.
Oscar Scherer State Park is another popular camping site, located on the banks of Lake Osprey in south Sarasota County. With 15 miles of trails and a blackwater stream that empties directly into the Gulf of Mexico, it is a popular location for hikers and bikers, canoeists, kayakers and both saltwater and freshwater fishers alike.Take a Nature Tour
Perhaps disappearing into the wilderness for days at a time is a daunting commitment or simply doesn't fit into your vacation schedule—in which case, nature tours are an excellent way to take in all the best that the area's wildlife has to offer in one day or less.
Sarasota Bay Explorers at Mote Aquarium offer an array of eco-tour adventures that make a day on the water fun as well as educational.
