Exceptionally clean and stunning
I tend to be very particular especially regarding cleanliness. When I opened the door to this beautiful home I instantly knew that I found my home away from home. I had different family members stay at different times during my five week stay and there were wonderful bedrooms that provided plenty of space for all. We spent the majority of our time on the lanai eating all our meals there and enjoyed the beautiful landscape lights in the evening. The pool was wonderful and well taken care of.
There was an emergency with a family member while we were there and David went out of his way to extend our time there until he was able to fly home so we did not have to look for a hotel for a week.
We had wonderful support from the agent who took care of us while we were there. Owner, David, was always very responsive and accommodating. I will certainly make this my Sarasota retreat. I definitely plan to be back. Highly recommend to all.
Thank you so much for your kind words. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and it was our pleasure to be able to accommodate your needs when your plans changed. We look forward to welcoming you back to Sarasota!
Simply Prefect - a very special place
From the moment we arrived at the very secure arrival gate check in, we knew we had found something very special. My family stayed here in August 2017, including a small child and teenager. The villa is beautiful and very spacious. We had the delights of the master bedroom, which is very impressive in size and decor. The walk in wardrobe and bathroom are real treats. The other bedrooms were equally as impressive, they all are large and easily accommodate 2 people and even a cot bed if needed. One has a very cosy corner settee for a moments peace. We ended up spending more time than planned in the villa as it would have been such a waste to spend the time away. David the owner is a pleasure to deal with and made sure every detail from arrival to departure was catered for. There is a welcome pack explaining how everything works around the villa and even a few pool amenities. By far the best family holiday we have had. Location wise is perfect, a few minutes from Walmart and the UTC Mall. Siesta key is 25 minutes away. What more could you ask for.
David thanks again for allowing us to enjoy such a beautiful place.
Great to hear that you had such a good time. Come back again soon!
We dealt with the owner David throughout and from start to finish found him so incredibly helpful, polite and accommodating. 8 of us stayed including a 12 year old child and 2 year old baby. It was perfect for everyone and brilliantly located for everything you will need. The villa is amazing with fantastic bedrooms and living areas that are clean, comfortable and very well furnished. So much so that you would say that it is a lived in property and not rented. There is very little i can write that will do the property justice but if you are thinking of renting it then i would recommend it without reservation.
David - thank you for making the whole experience so incredible!
We are so pleased that you and your family enjoyed your stay with us and thank you for looking after the house so well! We'd be delighted to welcome you back in Sarasota some day!
A wonderful home away from home!
Just returned from our first visit to the Sarasota area and we will be going back. We've visited many cities in Florida and so far, Sarasota is our favourite.
The house has everything we needed and much more. We like to cook most of our own meals while on vacation. The kitchen had everything we needed and the BBQ was new. We made good use of both! If you prefer to eat in restaurants, there are plenty within a 5 minute drive from University Park Country Club. We tried a couple and were not disappointed.
Driving in to Univeristy Park Country Club after a busy day of exploring is like entering a peaceful oasis. The home is beautifully furnished and is light and airy inside. The home is big enough for the whole family and the pool so refreshing as the temperatures climb. We lacked for nothing.
UPCC offers 27 top-rated holes of golf. We played several times during our vacation and had no problem booking tee times, and at very reasonable rates. The residents of UPCC were very friendly. We felt like part of the community.
There are beautiful beaches only 20 minutes away and unique shopping experiences. St Armand Circle was our favourite getaway. If you go, treat yourself to a meal at The Columbia Restaurant. The Sangria they make at your table is delicious and the tapas really good.
The owners of the home were very accommodating and there is on-site help if you need it. We didn't. Everything was well laid out and the household systems fully explained. Hope to spend more time here next year!
Thank you so much for your review! We are delighted you enjoyed your stay. Sarasota is indeed beautiful and we look forward to welcoming you back!!
Wonderful home to have a relaxing break! Great location - absolutely nothing to fault!
We stayed at this villa for a 2 week break in October. We'd seen the photographs on the website - but have to say, on arrival, the villa went far beyond our expectations! It's beautifully furnished, extremely spacious and very light and airy.
We stayed here with our daughters who are 19 and 18, and our elder daughters' boyfriend, 21. For all of us it was simply perfect! It's ideally situated for the local supermarkets, Publix, Walmart or Target - they're all a 5-10 minute drive away. It's also not far from a very nice small shopping mall - UTC. I say small, as we also visit family in Orlando and go to The Mall at Millenia and UTC is smaller than that, but there's still a good variety of shops in there. As I say ideally situated.
The beaches are just a 30-40 minute drive away - Siesta Key is stunning, as is Coquina Beach - it's all very beautiful. We also took a charter boat out with Island Boat Charters - Captain Chet has so much knowledge of the area - it truly was well worth the money.
So having spent some time exploring the area, to come back to this beautiful villa - just made our holiday that little bit extra special!!
We would most definitely return again - we had fantastic support from the agent - they took care of us from arrival, for the duration of our holiday, to the time we left - you literally could not ask for any better a service.
There is no negatives to say about this place - if you're looking for somewhere with space, a wonderful pool and pool side area, fantastic accommodation, generously sized rooms - then honestly, you need consider no other property - this is the one for you! You really wouldn't regret it!
If you book it - hope you have as wonderful a holiday as we had!!
Wonderful, luxurious but comfortable home with an amazing pool
We stayed here for two weeks and found the house to be utterly amazing. It is furnished to an exceptionally high standard and is very comfortable. It is really spacious with 12 foot high ceilings and a wonderful airy feel to it. Outside it is simply stunning. The pool is large with a raised sundeck area and views of the first fairway at University Park golf course. We had golf lessons from the resident pro which were great value and they were very friendly and not intimidating at all. For lunches the Park Grille at University Park Country Club is two minutes away and great value and with beautiful lake views. All in all a wonderful place to stay.
So pleased that you enjoyed your stay. We agree the pool is just fantastic! University Park is a great place for golfers whether just learning or experienced. We'd love to welcome you back one day and remember University Park offers short term memberships for visitors!
