About Whitney Dru Knepp

Hello! I have lived year around in Sarasota for over 8 years. Originally from Indiana, while spending the summers in Sarasota with my grandparents. It has always been a second home. I attended SIU where i received an education in architecture. I purchased this home a little over 2 years ago. Renovations are a hobby of mine since I am in the construction industry, therefore I have completely renovated the interior. I absolutely adore this home! So much love and hard work has been put into it! I recently got married, so we consolidated into one home. I'm very excited to share my home with you and I believe that you will enjoy as much as I have!

Whitney Dru Knepp purchased this House in 2014

Why Whitney Dru Knepp chose Southgate

This property took all of five minutes to buy when I first bought it. It was actually the first home I had ever even looked at. Location, Location, Location. Southgate is a comfortable and sought after established community in the center of a great Florida mid sized city. Central to all things Sarasota and all things Florida. As an affordable established neighborhood these savings can be passed on to my guests. The street is cul-de-sac and has no homes on the other side of the street making it very safe and quiet.

What makes this House unique

Parking for 4 cars and the whole street.

                                                            raymond l.

                                                            Clean place, the wheather was very good except 3 or 4 days. TV was a problem, couldn't watch

                                                            Football, only local channels were available. Surrounding was very good for us. All services were near, beach ( 2-3 miles) , groceries ( 1 mile ) etc...

                                                            Great stay!

                                                            Natallia K.

                                                            We had a wonderful stay in Sarasota in April! The house was well equipped and clean. The bathrooms were updated as stated and the backyard was lovely. The owner was responsive and extremely helpful. The neighborhood is safe and quiet. Centrally located to everything. Took us about 15-20 minutes to get to the beaches as there was traffic most days. Our only complaint was that the mattresses were very soft in both rooms and quite uncomfortable but if you don't mind soft bedding - this is an excellent home!

                                                            Edward & Carol O.

                                                            We were happy to spend a week here during the holiday. The home was as described - clean and centrally located. We had lived in Sarasota for many years and enjoyed visiting friends and family who lived in many directions. Whitney was welcoming and had done a very nice job of decorating her home which is in an older well established quiet neighborhood. The kitchen appliances are modern and top quality. We would stay here again when visiting Sarasota.

                                                            Beautiful home exactly what we needed!

                                                            treva m.

                                                            Myself and 3 children went down for a soccer tournament. This house was perfect. Whitney was very nice in answering all my questions beforehand and was there to greet us ato check in. I would definitely rent this property again. We did some cooking while we were there, the kitchen was prepped with everything we needed. Great property, quiet central location!

                                                            Enjoyable Stay

                                                            Gail C.

                                                            We stayed in Whitney's house for 4 nights. It is located in a very nice, quiet neighborhood. Her house is beautifully decorated ,exactly as her pictures show. It was close to all the places we like to go, such as Siesta Key, St. Armand's Circle, downtown Sarasota and The Ringling House. We appreciated the extra touches such as the Keurig with some coffees and tea ,and the Brita pitcher in fridge along with some bottles of water, even a vase of fresh flowers. Whitney was great to work with, because prior to choosing her house I had reached out to her with various questions, and she promptly and happily replied. We can't wait to come back and stay here again.
