About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 6 (6 adults)

Treat your family, friends, and beloved dogs to an unforgettable oceanfront getaway in sunny Florida!

Conveniently located near plenty of Sarasota's shopping and dining, your new home away from home is nice and isolated, surrounded by gorgeous views and just a quick walk from the waters of Sarasota Bay.

High-quality furnishings and a mix of the retro and mid-century modern create a nice, pleasant atmosphere. Three couches await in the living room, with two near the fireplace and one boasting ocean views. Between internet browsing on the WiFi (there's even a study for telecommuters - just don't work too hard) and cable on the flatscreen TV, you've got all you need to stay entertained.

The kitchen has been recently remodeled, with granite counters and stainless steel appliances. It's easier than ever to cook up some appetizers to try at the breakfast bar for two, or a full meal to savor at the table for six.

Leave the dishwasher to work on cleaning up as you watch the sunset, before heading to one of the three bedrooms for bed. Between a queen-size bed in the master bedroom, two twin-size beds in the second room, and a sofabed in the third bedroom, everyone will have a lovely place to sleep. There's also a laundry room for your convenience.

Wake up and take the dog for a quick walk (dogs up to 50 pounds are welcome for a small nightly fee) before exploring the area. Between artistic attractions at the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall and the John and Marble Ringling Art Museum, and naturalistic attractions at the Sarasota Jungle Gardens and Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium, you're all set! Don't forget hiking - the Coastal Nature Trail is only a short walk away. And golfers will love the easy access to amazing golf courses. A few from the many in the area are The Palms (six miles), University Park (eight miles), and IMG (nine miles).

The Sunshine State is waiting for you. Book today!

Wonderful bay view

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic location and view to die for.

Nicely equipped kitchen.

Quiet neighborhood.

Only problem was no electric outlets in bathrooms but view outweighs everything.

Fantastic View

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was cut short thanks to Hurricane Irma but I would love to go back and stay at this property again some day. The view is spectacular! I loved the location... it is close to many things to see and do. The house is spacious and comfortable and has a retro charm.

Great view, but property lacks warmth

  • 2 of 5

The good: Views of the bay was spectacular as in pictures! Furnishing as in picture. The kitchen & bathrooms were very clean. The outdoor patio furniture was nice. Good wifi signal. Brand new quiet washing machine & dryer.

The bad: There is a park next door to property that attracted lots of pedestrians that hangout each evenings (so expect to share your privacy with strangers in the backyard). The yard is well maintained, but the fence is made of rope and the lawn has poop from large dogs.

The wood floor & sofas are cover in dog fur. We had to wash all the blankets on arrival as it was cover with dog fur too. The sofa bed is not usable for sleeping, too thin padding and you'll feel the coils all night. The living room has no blinds, so you'll have blinding light from the sun all day.

Just basic cable, so no Discovery, History channels, etc. (we thankfully brought our apple tv). Kitchen stock with bare basic, so you'll need to purchase larger knives to cut meat/veggies, extra tongs, aluminum fold, saran wrap, paper towels, etc.

Bathrooms are a little small. Not much towels stock so bring your own if you have more than 2 people.

The mid century furnishings were very good and the location was great. View of the BAY was good for sunsets. A grill would have been nice. It's on the bay and there is no beach. the small park next to the house was very worrying. People stayed the night and were rowdy.

Beautiful Views

  • 5 of 5

80% of the home has been updated, very clean with beautiful views from every window. The Living room has a large window with full ocean view. The house was equipped with all we needed in the kitchen. The property is secluded and very private but there is a public park next to the property so we saw several "stragglers" on the other side of the fence.

The bathrooms need more updating. They were clean and parts were updated in each bathroom but still very outdated.

Siesta Key is 4-6 miles from this location, which took us approx. 20 minutes to get there since there with traffic.

Overall, we loved our stay and did not want to leave.
