About Lori Denison

Hi, I'm Lori! My husband and I live in Jupiter FL. We visited Sarasota for the first time on a 'college tour' with our daughter and fell in love. We bought a home close to New College and I lived here part time (as my daughter's roommate) for five years. Life changes -- our daughter is now serving in the Peace Corps in Jamaica. My new job's extensive travel keeps me away from Sarasota and our home there misses the sound of laughter and the smell of good food cooking. That's where you come in! Laugh a lot and enjoy your stay in our Sarasota getaway!

Lori Denison purchased this house in 2011

Golf Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Three of us came to Sarasoata for a golf weekend and this property was perfect for us. The house is spacious, well appointed, clean, and in a quiet neighborhood. Just as advertised, we enjoyed the big screen tv for March madness basketball. Easy access to Ed Smith stadium for a spring training game also. Plenty of room, and the kitchen had everything we needed. We plan to stay here again for our next trip to Sarasota!

Needs some TLC

  • 2 of 5

We were two couples staying in a few locations in SW Florida. The property therefore was a great layout for our stay and would easily accommodate another couple. Very spacious common area while providing good privacy. The Wi-Fi worked flawlessly, Netflix was great, there is good water pressure and plenty of hot water for multiple showers.

The cleanliness when we checked in for our stay however, was terrible. We contacted Lori about it but it was short notice to find another property to suit our needs and relocate so we did some essential clean up ourselves. We also found several items needing some maintenance/repair and let the owner know so they could be addressed for future renters.

Loved the house. It was great for our family and all the extras the owner provided were wonderful!

  • 4 of 5

There were a few negatives which the owner is taking care of...back of house still boarded up from Irma, making the house really dark inside and a squeaky box spring on one bed.

Owner's Response: Ann, thanks for your review. We removed the boards already and will replace the box spring asap. You were great guests; thanks for staying with us!

I liked the big roomy bathrooms. The little extra's a person would not get in a regular hotel. I loved the sunshine coming thru the bathroom window when showering. Thanks for thinking of everything and the cleanliness. A+

A true home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay definitely met our needs and then some. Great easy access driveway and quiet neighborhood. The home, being a single floor layout, was super. Plenty of room and space between the bedrooms. The living room big screen TV, with NetFlix, and lage sofa group were a nice suprise. Best part of the home is the full kitchen with a large selection of pots and pans for home cooking. Plenty of room at the dining room table. As we are coffee drinkers, the Kurig came in handy.
