About Michelle Moulin
Im a mother of two young adult women. My kids are off to college and I’m off to a new career and exploring a whole new world . Our home you are considering renting is desirable because it is simple and grounded. It provides a sweet space to enjoy whether you are single person, a couple or gathering as a family. I spent many quiet mornings enjoying my coffee by the pool. Its a great space. I've also hosted extended family and entertained like a mad women. You will find everything you need here, which every you choose to do.
Michelle Moulin purchased this House in 2012
Why Michelle Moulin chose Fruitville
It will feel like home the minute you walk in. This house is cozy, not over done. You and/or your family can relax here and enjoy. You will have everything you need. The interstate to all other places is minutes away, including easy access to Tampa Airport. No big traffic huddles to get around. Downtown Sarasota and St Armonds less then 10+ minutes away. The coastline of beaches are 10 miles away. it is rare to have a property lot this big inside the city limits. Its size provides privacy and additional space to enjoy. It was a great place for my kids and my family that came to visit. We always had tons of room. The split floor plan make a good separation of space. You don't feel like you are on top of each other. A few of us could be in the kitchen cooking while a couple are in the sitting area nearby and everyone else in the living room playing or relaxing. The pocket sliding doors give an indoor/outdoor living space. Sit in the family room and look out over the pool or watch the kids play. Its a great layout.
What makes this House unique
Located in a great neighborhood. Easy parking, close to everything. Perfect combo of sunny beach access, shopping, golf and tranquil retreat. Really stress free. Centrally located to the interstate, downtown Sarasota and its beaches. Sarasota and Tampa airports are a simple drive away. Best of all worlds :) Pool and back yard are very nice for just relaxing and staying put. Kids have lots of toys and games to keep them happy. Large groups of family or corporate work holiday are very comfortable. Printer, white boards and video conferencing can all be provided.

Perfect Place ❤️
Everything from booking this home to checking out was perfect and easy, the only thing we had to buy was our own food everything else was supplied. The pool was the perfect temperature and the children were in it everyday, The bedrooms were nice and stocked with other sheets and pillows, the second living room had two rooms connecting and that area was used as the childrens own little area. I would recommend this home to anyone wanting to be close to everything in town, close to the beach, all while having your own privacy. We loved staying here! Hoping to have it next year as well.
Perfect for a large family vacation!
Lovely home in a nice quiet neighborood. Layout with master bedroom/bath at one end and other 4 bedrooms and family room at other end was perfect. Appreciated having TVs in the dining room, family room and 3 bedrooms. Owner was exceptional to work with. Appreciated toys/games/books/beach toys. Location was close to I 75. Beaches were 15 min...great shells! Enjoying the privacy of our own pool and the backyard treehouse were great hits for the children. Lovely patio with grill made for lazy nice evenings. Choosing this home truly made our vacation extra special.
Nice roomy well laid out floor plan!
Great, big family floorplan with separation of the master bedroom, from the living room, and the family room, which we affectionately called the kids wing. That coupled with a great central location, was easy to maneuver in and out of, and ensures your stay will be filled with awesome family memories on McIntosh!
Great space for a large family!
We had the perfect stay at this house!!
It had room for my father-in-law, my parents, two of my siblings, two of my nephews, my wife and myself. We don't get to see each other very often and it is nice to be able to fit everyone under one roof.
Aside from all of the bedrooms, there is a screened-in pool and an outdoor patio where a large group can gather comfortably. The location is great, there are a lot of stores and restaurants nearby and the beach is close too! The local attractions are a quick drive away, I highly recommend the Big Cat Sanctuary, my whole family enjoyed it from ages 3 to 91. There is also a Storefront Farmers Market nearby with fresh meats, fruits & vegetables called Detwilers. I would go there first and then swing by Publix to get anything they don't have. We cooked most of our meals there at the house.
It is a great space and Michelle was a great host. We would book it again, so you should too!!!
Nice property with much to offer
This house fit our needs very well. Our party consisted of seven adults and one toddler. We wanted the little one to have her own room so that she could have her early bedtime and the grown-ups would not disturb her. We also had several single adults and needed flexible sleep spaces, so the five bedrooms with crib/toddler bed and several couch spaces was just right. We didn't need to be close to the beach so this east-side Sarasota locale was not a problem for us. The neighborhood was very quiet and nicely kept. The pool was spacious enough for all of us to jump in and not feel at all crowded. It was clean and warm as well. The kitchen was well outfitted with all sorts of cookware/barware/serving ware etc. I don't think there was anything we needed that we didn't find already there. There were quite a few toys and books in the family area and water toys poolside. There were many sand toys and other beach items in the garage. There were sufficient linens for all of us and they were of good quality. The one problem we had was with the clothes dryer. Although very new and modern, it did not function well. I reported the problem to the owner and she quickly dispatched a neighbor/manager to help. Not sure what was done but it didn't really seem to help. Each load of clothes had to be done half at a time, and even then the dryer had to be re-started about three times in order to get items dry. I think the trouble with the dryer is why we found the towels to have a musty smell when we first arrived. Aside from this we were very satisfied. The home is older and there are areas for improvements, but these were small issues. If the dryer situation can be remedied, it would be a great improvement to the overall experience.
Awesome Family Getaway!!!
This house had everything we could possibly need! The owner equipped the house with lots of games for the kids, pool accessories, items for a pet (even doggy steps), items for the beach (toys, chairs, etc.), horseshoes, golf clubs, etc. The owner was always available if we needed anything or had questions. We were very pleased with the house. The house is located in a centralized location that made it easy for us to visit multiple beaches (Siesta, Turtle, Venice, Anna Maria Island, etc.).
