Each of the bedrooms also has a ceiling fan driven by DC motors for quiet operation. All appliances, including the washer and dryer, are top quality and have been selected for ease of use.

Our bungalow is located in historic Laurel Park, a half block from the Burns Court section, complete with the famous Sarasota Film Society in Burns Court Cinema and Owen's Fish Camp. We are a 10 minute walk to Main Street and its many restaurants, shopping and a bowling alley at Evie's. Whole Foods is a three minute drive. All of Sarasota's many cultural activities, such as opera, dance, theater, jazz and other performing arts, are a short drive or walk away. Other activities, such as the Mote Aquarium, Baltimore Orioles spring training, public and private golf courses, sailing and canoeing, Selby Botanical Gardens, the Ringling Museum, the fabulous Saturday Farmers Market, the Van Wezel Performing Arts Center, and the Ca d'Zan, are all minutes away. The highly acclaimed Bobby Jones Municipal Golf Course offering 47 holes of landscaped beauty is a short 15 minute drive.
And then there's the beach. Siesta Key Beach was ranked by many, including Conde Nast Magazine and TripAdvisor, and one of the best in the US, and best in the world by Travelers's Choice. If you're looking for a smaller beach, you can choose from Crescent Beach, Turtle Beach, Lido Beach or Longboat Key. Those willing to travel more than 15 minutes have endless choices, but our favorite is having dinner with our feet in the sand at the Sandbar Restaurant in Anna Maria Island.
If you need more space, we have another unit on the same property, the Devonshire Carriage House, a fully equipped luxury one bedroom apartment. Refer to VRBO listing # 996940 for additional information.
