Recent Florida South West reviews

  • Absolutely recommended

    "My wife and 10 year old son stayed in this condo for 5 days during Memorial weekend. Communication with owner was great and every detail was just as advertised, we were greeted by a very nice lady who gave us a tour of the unit. It was very clean throughout and fully equipped with more things than we had thought. Everything was neatly placed where it belonged and nicely organized. There is absolutely no smoking in the unit which was a huge plus for us. Restaurants in the area were really good with fresh seafood. We will definitely stay there again and will highly recommend it to anybody looking for a peaceful retreat in the west coast of Florida."

  • The perfect location, community, and owner. Never equaled in my 20 years of renting in Sarasota.

    "We have been vacation renting in various places in Sarasota for 20 years - sometimes for a week or two, sometimes up to 3 months. 207 Whispering Sands Drive is by far the most attractive, comfortable, trouble-free, friendly, and well-located place - by a very wide margin. Not only does it come with a car, which frees my wife to do her own thing without worrying about me, it comes with a beautiful private beach (3 minute walk in the community), 2 heated pools (1 and 3 minute walks), monthly cocktail parties, a neighborhood bridge game, and, best of all, the friendliest people you will ever meet. Almost as important to us, it is also a 1-minute walk from Siesta Village, where there are always several bands playing at 6-8 bars, 6-8 restaurants, and a lot of other nightlife. In contrast, Whispering Sands is a quiet, safe community with all the attractions of the Village just outside its entrance. The first among the friendly people of Whispering Sands is Merrill, your landlord, who is truly a nice guy, and a very accommodating one for any small problems. For example, the vacuum cleaner wasn't working well this year, so he simply asked me to go buy one and said he would reimburse for it - which he did. His check arrived 2 days later! Amazing service. The villa has clearly been furnished and cared for lovingly. All the little things are just as you would do at home if you had the time and money. The two-car garage is spotless and has a finished floor - not just concrete. The floors and showers are not tile - they are travertine marble, a beautiful touch. The TV is a 60" beauty. The towels are thick, the sheets are smooth, everything is in good order and spotless. This is not a place for rowdy spring-break vacationers, or anyone close to that. Whispering Sands is quiet and gentile, for 55 year-olds and up. There are no smoking and no pets. You must rent for at least two months and you will be required to have a background check by the Whispering Sands administration. Merrill will treat you like like one of the family, and will expect you to take care of his home with equal care. If you can do that, you will not find a better rental venue on Siesta Key, maybe anywhere! The only reason that I am letting you in on this jewel of a secret is that my wife and I have decided, after all these years, to finally buy our own slice of heaven - a similar vill"

  • The perfect place

    "After many vacations in Naples, it's been our second stay with the Bishops in their wonderful place in the heart of Olde Naples. Staying at TerraPalma is an unique experience. It feels better than any 5-star hotel and you won't miss anything. In that case, the perfect hosts Judy and David (not to forget their nice Puppy Biscuit) will get or organize in an instant. Their place is not only well equipped and lovely decorated. If you like to spend the day and night outside their manicured garden and patio with a stat-of-the-art BBQ is the place to be. Beach and Naples Pier ar so close that you can fire up the grill, go for a swim and/or watch the magnificient sunset and be back for dinner within a minute. Bars and restaurants on third street a only a short stroll (one small block) away and off great opportunities for a night cap and people and luxury car watching. We can't expect to return to this little paradise."
