Spacious 3 bedroom ranch with 3 updated baths in serene Palm Aire community
I was born in Canada and moved to the U.S. in 2000, where I met my now husband and business partner. We live and work mostly in the Chicago area and purchased this home in 2012 for my sister-in-law to enjoy. She has since moved to be with her son in St. Louis and while my husband and I are not yet ready to retire to Florida, we love this home and property so much that we are excited to share it.
Owner purchased this House in 2012
Why Owner chose Sarasota
We are hoping that folks looking for a relaxing, easy-living home for their vacation will consider this property. It is a large ranch style home, so offers easy accessibility for all ages. Pets are welcome - we used to bring our dogs to visit and they loved hanging out in the lanai watching the birds and the squirrels. The views are lovely - the well-maintained golf course is beautiful, of course, and the waterway is a major attraction for all types of birds. There is always something to see and we keep binoculars available for others interested in viewing the wildlife - and occasional PGA golfer!
What makes this House unique
This home was built on a double lot - so not only is it a large home, the neighbors are not right on top of you. It is on a quiet cul-de-sac so is a very safe place for children and the elderly. As you drive down the street remember to wave - it is a neighborhood thing. When we bought the home we were quite taken by the fact that many of the original design was still intact, including the large bar in the great room, complete with paneled wood walls and linoleum! This is a good place to hang out and be comfortable - hearkens back to "That Seventies Show!" We just finished remodeling all three bathrooms - they are modern and we designed them not only to look lovely and function well, but also to be easy to keep clean and sparkling. At some point we will remodel the kitchen, but for now it is quite workable with plenty of cabinets and counter space.

Gorgeous spot and easy for families!
This is the perfect house to spread out - relax and enjoy what Sarasota has to offer. They have stocked the house with everything you need to have a great streamlined visit! We would absolutely rent this house again!
We are so glad you had everything you needed for your visit. Hopefully that allowed your group to stay focused on their rowing event and also relax at the house when not at the rowing center.
We would be delighted to have you as repeat guest - perhaps next year during Nationals!

My wife & I truly enjoyed staying at this beautiful home. Plenty of room in a quiet neighborhood with a wonderful view of the golf course. Many hours were spent on the screened porch enjoying the view and the wildlife. Very close to many fine restaurants and grocery stores. We would love to return next year for a longer period if it is available.
Joe & Ellen Griffin
We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and agree that the views and wildlife from the screened porch are a great feature of the property. We understand there was an issue during your stay and we thank you for your understanding while that was taken care of. According to our property manager, you were wonderful guests. We will keep in touch to let you know what the availability is for next year.

Roomy & Relaxing
The house was spacious and fit all of our needs. The three couples spent a great month enjoying the facilities at Palm Aire Country Club- golf, pickleball, pool and the clubhouse with all its events! House is centrally located near grocery store, restaurants, attractions and shopping. Nice quiet area too!
We are so pleased your found the property to be spacious and that you enjoyed the facilities at the Club.
Roomy Ranch with quiet views
We loved staying at this rental property. Our party consisted of 6 adults and a toddler. Each family unit had their own bedroom and bathroom. My parents were happy to have a partially handicapped equipped bathroom.
The kitchen was well equipped; had multiple sets of silverware and dishes and two fridges (one in the laundry room). We could easily have two or more people preparing a meal at once.
The central living area was in the back of the house, overlooking the golf course and a pond. We saw lots of wildlife and a few golfers by the water.
The owner and manager were always available and answered our questions promptly.
The house is in a lovely subdivision, Palm Aire, on the end of a cul-de-sac. It is close to shopping, restaurants and grocery stores.
I would recommend this rental highly.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. We are delighted you enjoyed your time at the property.
Thanks also for your comments about the kitchen. As I had mentioned to you prior to your stay, the oven is small, especially in comparison to the size of the kitchen, so I am glad you found the kitchen to be well equipped and functional for your needs.
We spent a wonderful two weeks at this house!
It was perfect for our family: setting was picturesque, very comfortable and spacious, clean and well-equipped, and the location was convenient to many of Sarasota's attractions. Our two children and their families joined us during that time. There was an overlap of three days when there were six adults and four children at the house. With three bedrooms, two spacious and one smaller, three full bathrooms, and the use of an air mattress, we had very little difficulty making sure everyone was comfortable. We all enjoyed the large family room; our grandchildren especially loved eating breakfast at the bar. The porch was so pleasant and was particularly enjoyed during the mornings and evenings. We are so happy that we found this house for our Sarasota trip!

Wonderful home !!
We stayed at the home for the better part of March 2018 and thoroughly enjoyed the house and our stay in Sarasota. The house is very room with excellent updated bathrooms, excellent bedrooms, wonderful porch and big family room. The kitchen is a bit outdated but is large and works well. The neighborhood is very nice and most of all the setting facing the pond and golf course make it very private and interesting. My wife is a "birder" and recorded 14 different Florida birds!!! Also our small dog had an ongoing encounter with the sand hill cranes that frequented the back yard most days!! We are very familiar with the University Park area which has grown so much but has everything to offer and is relatively easy to get around. Downtown restaurants are easy to get to as is St Armands and beaches on Anna Maria. One place we loved was to walk our dog at Benderson Park around the rowing basin...home to world championships and all NCAA rowing championships this year... All in all a great vacation and we missed 4 Northeaster snow storms!!
Thank you so much for your kind review.
We are delighted you enjoyed your time at the property and agree with you that the views from the back make it private and interesting. I'm sure the sand hill cranes are already missing the adventures they had with your dog!
