About the property

Adorable one bed one bath suite in pet friendly home .

The Secret Garden is an adorable little get away for one to two people wishing to spend time in Sarasota. It is conveniently located just over the bridge to Siesta Key. If you're an adventurer ride your bike to the city and Lido as well. Live like a local. Walk to Trader Joes or Starbucks for your morning ritual from this friendly little neighborhood. Sit at Walt's Tiki restaurant with the locals for a cocktail and music . And be sure to reserve a table at Marcellos when you book your reservation at The Garden. It's a popular little known gem in SRQ that you can stroll to in the evening.

Attractive and Convenient

  • 4 of 5

Sally, the host, is a helpful and gracious person. The unit is quite attractive and has many modern appliances, including a spacious shower, garbage disposal, dishwasher, microwave, roomy fridge, kitchen sink sprayer, and clothes washer and dryer. Trader Joes soaps, shampoos, coffees, creamer, etc., are all there for your use. Fresh flowers adorned the unit. The two sets of sliding glass doors facing the private back patio let in a lot of light. It was cold at night and heat was required, but the heat could only be controlled in the next-doo unit (it is a two-apartment ranch house). The guests next-door kept the heat higher than I would have liked. Sally did say to let her know if it got too hot--but I let it go. Also, there was a slight smell in the place that reminded me of damp dog smell. On my final day there, cleaning up, I found a dirty tennis ball under the couch. Pets are allowed. Also, there seemed to be some mold in the clothes washer, which I tried to clean out. My hands got a little itchy after that. With that said, I was happy in the unit, and it was conveniently located to everywhere I needed to go. I recommend staying here.

My boyfriend and I stayed for a week with our dog and absolutely loved it. It was perfect for us. The apartment has all new and clean appliances. The enclosed fence was perfect for our dog. Sally was also great! We will definitely stay again!

The Garden is only minutes from Siesta Beach. Some of Sarasota's favorite restaurants are just a stroll away. You can jump on a bike and be Downtown and on the Bay front in 15 minutes. It's in a safe, very convenient and on the rise neighbor hood .
