Owner info

Year Purchased: 2015

About the owner: My wife Mikeal'an and I moved to Sarasota 5 years ago. Our plan was to retire here after working and raising a family in the Washington DC/Northern VA area.

Why the Owner Chose Laurel Park, Sarasota, FL, USA:
We loved Sarasota from the moment we saw it and knew this was the place we had been searching for. We opted to live in Laurel Park (where all 4 of our vacation cottage rentals are because we enjoy walking our dogs to restaurants, cafes and the waterfront Bay Park. We enjoy riding our bikes to the Opera! The style is quaint and charming. We are very proud to offer 4 charming vacation cottages in our neighborhood so our guests can experience the same lifestyle!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our area is very unique. Our quests are looking for something more than just beach and golf. Although those things are just a few minutes away, our location gives you so much more! All 4 of our charming vacation cottages are located in laurel park (voted the #1 neighborhood in sarasota). Our vacationers are within walking distance to all the action and the waterfront harbor, yet far enough away to sit our your patio and not here a thing! We are just 2 blocks from everything downtown/harbor so your can walk to it all!
