About Beth Holden
I have lived in Sarasota for 25 years, originally from Vermont, but grew up in Pennsylvania. I have been in the hospitality industry all my life so I can assist you with suggestions for things to do or see while visiting Sarasota.
Beth Holden purchased this Apartment in 2009
Why Beth Holden chose Southgate
This property is in a unique part of Sarasota, close to everything but yet "canopied" with the large oak trees. I fell in love with the neighborhood many years ago and when I decided to buy, this was the only place in Sarasota that I wanted to live.
What makes this Apartment unique
Many people love Arlington Park because they can take their daily walk around the park, take their dog to the dog park a short walk away, go for a swim at the Arlington Park Aquatic Center, ride their bike to have lunch at nearby Hillview Street or play a tennis on the park's clay courts. If going to the beach, both Siesta Beach or Lido Beach are only a short drive away. Nothing of interest or beauty is very far away.
Pool / Spa
Beth's home was comfortable, clean and even spacious for 2 adults and a dog. Beth was available but not intrusive. But its location was primo for us because 1) there is a park a block away for walking and doggie gathering and 2) it is 10 minutes away from beaches and incredibly beautiful Gulf of Mexico.
Thank you for the lovely review. My home is especially accommodating if you have a doggy with you. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay.
Fifties home with very little updates, no dishwasher, unable to locate smoke alarms and extremely poor grounds. Blanket on bed had stains that when washed did come out. We took it because of price and learned a lesson.
Cozy, Clean, Comfortable and Convenient
What more could you ask for while escaping winter up north! Beth was very kind and helpful during our month long stay here with our dog. The house is compact, with nice, eclectic furnishings and very easy to care for. A screened porch on the back and east side was great in the morning. Off the sun-room, the deck in the enclosed yard was a great afternoon spot to read and hang out. We walked daily (sometimes twice) to the end of the street where a popular park with open space, a pond with ducks, turtles, an elusive alligator and a fountain at it's center provided great walking on the half mile paved path. The neighborhood is lovely with old growth shade trees, many with Spanish moss, and also quiet with little traffic and great for bike riding. A variety of restaurants and grocery stores are only minutes away. We were a short drive to several beaches as well as waterside parks and more important, lots of fishing places and fishing piers. The Sunday morning Sarasota farmer's market and Southside Village are not to be missed. This is a warm, peaceful retreat where I wished we could have stayed longer.
Thank you Andrea for your wonderful review. It was nice having you here as well. Take care.
We loved our stay. The neighborhood is quiet and there is a lovely park at the end of the street. The home is comfortable, clean, and nicely decorated. It is close to grocery stores and lots of restaurants. You are close to the center of the city but far enough away that you don't have the noise and craziness. Lovely place.
Thank you Margie, I loved having you!
Location great. Cute place. Owner helpful.
Clean + Great location + Near Park = Happy stay for my family and dog
With its great location in a nice neighborhood -- a block away from Arlington Park -- this was a great place to stay! My family of four stayed here for 3 weeks and found it to be clean, fully-furnished, and perfect for our needs.
Beth was extremely nice and helpful -- really, a perfect host.
If you have a dog, this is also a perfect place to stay. Our English bulldog loved walking to the park and playing in the Arlington dog park. Our kids loved how quick of a drive it was to so many beaches -- Siesta Key, Lido Key, Turtle Beach.
