About the property

3+ BR, 2 bath, beautiful private home with caged pool, outdoor dining area.

This newly remodeled 1,900 sq. ft. open concept home must be seen to be appreciated. It is appointed with high quality upscale granite, travertine style tile floors and all new furniture and appliances. Most of the living is outdoors in the screen enclosed pool and patio area.

The master BR suite has carpeted floor, queen bed, his & hers walk-in closets and bathroom with direct exit to pool & patio. Guest BR #1 has a queen bed, large closet and large sliding doors that open directly to the pool & patio. Guest BR #2 offers twin beds and a large closet. Both guest BRs are adjacent to the guest bathroom that has direct access to the pool & patio.

The open floor plan kitchen, granite bar, living room, dining room and family room area provide a warm inviting environment for gatherings & social activities. Kitchen appliances are new stainless steel Samsung & GE. The induction (not conduction) range offers more exact & faster cooking than most gas ranges. The oak kitchen cabinets and drawers are soft closing. There is a sliding window pass-through to the patio for convenient outside serving and easy clean-up.

An extra room has the washer & dryer, and an single bed, perfect for a child or single adult. Along with a fold-out sofa bed in the family room, the house could comfortably accommodate up to 9 people (although we suggest 6 people as optimal).

The pool and patio area is where most of your at-home living is likely to be done. The pool is heated so that it will be at your desired temperature at all times. A propane Weber grill will support your every grilling desire.

PLEASE NOTE: This property only accepts Saturday turnovers unless you're booking for 4 weeks or more.

About Aymii Couzelis

We bought this house and remodeled it with plans to live in it for the rest of our lives, so everything was painstakingly selected the way we wanted it. When our plans changed, we bought second house on the same street to live in, because we love the street, location & neighborhood so much. Our hope is that you will love it as much as we do. This is our only rental property so we want it to be perfect for our guests.

We are a socially & physically active local couple running, walking, kayaking, cycling, volunteer work, arts & entertainment, and, of course, beach time. We love the Sarasota area, and, in particular this area.

Aymii Couzelis purchased this house in 2009

Why Aymii Couzelis chose Sarasota

Location, location, location - as the saying goes. While being on a quiet dead end street with virtually no traffic, this property is convenient to just about everything, especially the beach. Your biggest dilemma is likely to be whether to stay in to enjoy the house & pool or to go out and explore the wonderful beach, restaurants and activities that are very nearby.

Short walk to World Famous Siesta Key Beach - Beautiful Home on Very Quiet St.
average rating of 5.0 based on 18 reviews

Nice home near Siesta Key

  • 5 of 5

Great home for a wonderful vacation in paradise. Spend the morning at the beach then return home to enjoy the beautiful screened in pool in the afternoon. Return for an evening walk on the beach to view the sunset. This home is in a nice quiet neighborhood out of the hubbub of the crowded Key area. This home has all the amenities necessary for a successful vacation. It gives you the best of both Sarasota and all it has to offer along with the best beach in Florida.

Perfect House for our Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This property could not have been more perfect!!! The layout of this house was perfect for our family. The split layout kept the rest of the family on the other side of the house. We also have a baby granddaughter that was able to stay in what was so much more than the "laundry room!" It was perfect - it had a twin bed in there as well as plenty of room to set up our portable crib!! The two bathrooms (one was in the master bedroom) had access to the yard and pool which was great. The rest of the house was perfect - great kitchen - totally stocked with all the pots, pans, dishes, appliances that you could want! There were games, beach chairs, beach towels! Whatever we needed was there. You can literally just bring your clothes and everything else will be provided for you! The pool was perfect - warm!!! Don't want to forget that the most beautiful beach was a short walk away. Also we found some great restaurants that were walking distance. If you have kids - there was also a great park under a mile walk (easy) with a playground and short nature path. A shoutout to Jack and Pam (property managers) who were great with checking us in and out. Always available and helpful for questions, etc. Thanks also to Paul and Nancy (property owners) who were so sweet and welcoming.

Perfect home and location

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do enough to show how delightful this home is. The location is amazing. The neighborhood is safe and secluded. Great for early morning walks. The pool is awesome and so needed during the heat of summer. The whole check in/check out process was a breeze. Owner and manger very easy to deal with. The home has everything you need. Beach chairs, umbrella and towels all were greatly appreciated. We did not walk to beach, siesta is too far with all your stuff. But an easy walk over the bridge to the beach for evening sunset. We were pleasantly surprised at a restaurant within walking distance, the boat yard was really quite good. I Loved this trip and can't wait to go back. Thank you for letting us stay at this lovely home. Well worth the money. Only one minor suggestion. Need non-stick frying pans. Tried to make some eggs in the am, pans were not friendly. Basically avoiding much cooking, which was not a bad thing :)

Great location, well-equipped home for a family!

  • 5 of 5

We were really impressed and happy with this home! It was in close proximity to the beach, grocery stores, shopping, etc. It was also well equipped with everything, we especially enjoyed the outside pool/patio area. The only thing that would keep us from going back is the master bedroom bed. It was by far the hardest bed we've ever slept on and we've slept on a lot of different mattresses. :)

Owner's Response: Thanks very much for your review! Sorry to hear the mattress was a bit too firm for your liking. If you decide to stay with us again, I'll see if I can do something like put on a thicker, cushier mattress pad on for your visit.

Dream Home (and location!) away from home

  • 5 of 5

This has been our 4th vacation rental in Sarasota in 4 years and we have found the one we would return to again and again! The house is on the last street on the mainland before you take the bridge to Siesta Key - this is as close as you can get to the Key without being ON the Key.

We prefer to rent a house with a pool as opposed to staying in a condo on the key for the convenience of having our own pool -- wonderful to be making lunch (or doing laundry) while the kids are swimming. Also nice to take late swim after the kids are tucked in bed! (can't do that in a community pool!)

The owners had lived in this home themselves and had it remodeled. The quality of the kitchen appliances is very high end and the kitchen was stocked with utensils, cooking/baking ware, etc. There is a very nice propane grill on the back patio that we enjoyed one evening as well. We appreciated the use of the garage to get the car out of the hot sun. There were plenty of beach chairs, boogie boards, and umbrellas at the house, although we used what we brought since you never know what is supplied.

The saline pool is in a fully enclosed "bird cage" and was enjoyed by my family almost every day. The pass through window from the kitchen is useful when serving and clearing meals eaten on the patio.

The property is managed by a very nice man (Jack) who showed us around the home and even came over to take out the garage the night before pick up. We did not have any issues with the house but it is comforting to know that there would have been someone local responding right away if we did.

The floorplan is set up with a master and en suite bath on one side of the house and the other bedrooms and hall bath on the other side. Queen bedroom and master have access to the pool. 3rd bedroom has 2 twin beds and the large laundry room has another twin bed if you needed a 4th bedroom. In addition to the dining area, there are 2 separate living rooms - 1 with the large flat screen TV and another smaller living room with a futon-type couch and a desk. I enjoyed having a quiet place to read/work while the kids were watching TV.

I would absolutely come back and would refer this home to friends looking to vacation in Sarasota.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us!
