Total Peace and Comfort in Sarasota!
Where to begin? Arrived at Diane’s lovely and super clean condo after a long 16 hour drive (in rain and fog) and opened the front door to a vase of lovely flowers, goodies on the kitchen table and in the fridge. It felt so welcoming and I felt at home right away. The home is immaculate and wants for nothing, and I mean nothing. I brought some herbs and spices with me but the cupboard had more than enough to get you started. I enjoy cooking and Diane had the kitchen up to par, and then some. The appliances were top notch and plentiful and dinnerware above average. I have been in other rentals where some of the glassware was plastic or cups chipped or mismatched....not here, and we so appreciated it! We enjoyed the beautiful artwork and pottery from around the world. The beds were very comfortable and linens and pillows plentiful. The bathrooms had supplies to get you started and it seemed some goodies were left behind by previous guests so it was fun to find all these different soaps and shampoos and lotions.
I had brought my own Alexa to have background music but Diane had that covered too...in the master bedroom was a Google player. Alongside the master bedroom is an office that houses a large supply of books and dvds so on the occasional rainy day it was fun to go through the books and have a nice read.
The community pool is a short walk away and can be seen from the lanai...water nice and warm and friendly neighbors too. We walked throughout the neighborhood, sometimes being accompanied by a group of Sandhill Cranes! On Sundays the Palm Air Country Club is open to the public for brunch and we had a wonderful breakfast there overlooking the golf course. Shopping...to your hearts content and ten minutes away at the University Town Center. Also not to miss...Drumming at Siesta Key Beach Sundays at 5:30, LaBarge boat ride at the marina in Sarasota, and the view from the 19th floor of the Westin Hotel across from the marina, there is a bar there as well. Oh, and the Farmers Market in downtown Sarasota on Saturday morning is great fun and you can cap that off with a great cup of coffee and dessert at Whole Foods right next door. But I digress...back to the sunny condo..I had a feeling of total comfort and safety and Diane has gone out of her way to make you feel at home. Thank you Dianne for making this an A-1 vacation for us! Oh, and don’t forget to go to the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens...the city views are to die for!
This is a tremendous place to stay
We've stayed in Palm Aire for many years, visiting from the UK.
This villa though exceeded our expectations, It's exceptionally clean, spacious and well equipped. The community pool is virtually in the back garden.
The owner, who resides locally, met us upon arrival and checked during our stay to see if everything was OK.
Palm Aire is a great place to stay, with restaurants and shopping very close, and beaches a short drive away.
We have recommended this villa to friends who have booked for 2019
Great experience with everything you need and more.
I stayed here for one month while waiting to move into my new home after relocating from Colorado. This was a lifesaver. I work from home and did not really have a home. The office was probably better than any office I have had in any of my homes. The location was great and close to everything. Pretty neighboorhood. Quiet. The owner has everything you need including tea bags which non-coffee drinkers are not accustomed to. The owner is very helpful and it is really a benefit having a local owner. A very comfortable home.
This was our second year staying in the villa for 5 weeks. Once again, we were very impressed with the cleanliness and accommodations. The owner checked in via text several times throughout out stay to see if there was anything we needed (we didn't). I found that to be reassuring and not overbearing at all. Hopefully we will be able to return next summer.
My wife and I spent two months here, while I was being treated for medical issues in Sarasota. The home is beautiful and spacious, and the kitchen is well stocked with everything you might need. The grounds in the community are beautiful as well, and I enjoyed jogging around them while my wife made use of the nearby pool. There is also an indoor and an outdoor porch that we made use of during our down time. All in all, I would totally recommend this home for your Sarasota stay
Wonderful place to stay
We rented this lovely villa for 5 1/2 weeks. Everything was better than expected. This property was very clean, I typically wipe down everything when I arrive, but not this time. The owner was pleasant to work with, very accommodating and responsive. The villa is very well stocked with anything one might need, plenty of towels, lines, kitchen supplies, even a well stocked garage with tools & cleaning supplies.
Considering we stayed during the heat of the summer, I was concerned about it being too hot and needing to run the AC constantly. However, this villa is well shaded and easily stayed at a very comfortable temperature during the day and night.
We had a very enjoyable stay and hope to return next year.
Great Location close to everything Sarasota has to offer. Palm Aire now has it's own lovely Conservatory with several picnic areas, a sitting area with water views, and exercise equipment throughout the park. Palm Aire Country Club Seasonal and Vacation memberships available for golf, tennis, social. Benderson International Rowing Park and UTC Shopping Mall close by as well as Downtown, beaches, within close proximity..
