  • Paradise on Lido

    "This past October I was fortunate enough to spend a month on Lido Key at the Ringling Retreat. Sarasota has always been my go-to vacation spot. I love the shops on St. Armand's and Lido Beach. Other activities such as the Ringling Art Museum are only a short drive away. I was especially pleased with this year's choice of places to stay. I researched online numerous hotels and motels, but decided on the Ringling Retreat. It's a house made up of several suites, and I was lucky enough to get a one bedroom. The Retreat was quiet and convenient to all the local action. Such a homey atmosphere to come back to every evening after running myself ragged, cramming all Sarasota had to offer in a month's time. I really lucked out at the Ringling! I could be as active as I wanted to be or just sit back and relax. The unit came with a small kitchen, full stove and refrigerator, table and chairs, living room with couch and chairs, TV and numerous books, maps, things to do in the area, so I could plan my day accordingly, also a comfortable queen-sized bed, and a bathroom with shower, plus a beach chair. There are two requests I have while traveling, a recliner for my bad back and a good bed with soft pillows, and I was lucky enough to get both! And an added bonus was that I never heard a peep out of the neighbors. In fact, I didn't know I had neighbors until I met them. Management was terrific. I met Mary Anne and her husband, lovely people and so accommodating. On my first night, I realized she'd left me a week's worth of fruit, a gallon jug of water, and a 6 pack of coke (an item I requested beforehand) with a nice note welcoming me. Did I mention there's a lap pool nearby for swimming at $5.00 per day. That's if you get tired of the beach! I could go on and on about my Sarasota. It's just a beautiful area and known for its pristine beaches, world class shopping, dining, and entertainment venues. Being able to enjoy Sarasota was made even more wonderful by Mary Anne and my stay at the Ringling Retreat. I highly recommend the Retreat to all, young and retired. It's a beautiful escape in a beautiful city. Did I mention that the driveway was covered in shells! (One quick note, I was there during a hurricane. Sarasota fared well, and I wasn't afraid at all. Mary Anne checked on me and even planned an evacuation had the storm gotten worse.). Look into renting the Ringling Retreat for your next vacation. You won't be disappointed!"

  • Two wonderful stays at Sandy Toes!

    "My mother (age 92) and I had a wonderful time staying at Island Dreams. We first stayed in Sandy Toes in August of 2015, and then returned again this year. Julie went out of her way to make our stay pleasant and comfortable. The location cannot be beat - a hop, skip and a jump from the beautiful ocean, where I walked every morning - and several blocks from the shops and restaurants at St. Armand's Circle. The unit was cozy and cute, and had everything that we needed, and we were able to eat in for most of our meals, which was what my mother wanted to do. We really hope to return to Island Dreams again next year!"

  • Paradise

    "This was our first time renting a home and we are so glad we did! The first 3 days were spent watching Tropical Storm Hermine from the gorgeous floor to ceiling windows. We didn't seem to mind. The lanai and pool are fantastic. The backyard was private and we could go for late night swims. We had a couple of cliches the first few days with some things not working, but Giovanni took care of them very quickly...thank goodness for Giovanni! The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is the beach umbrellas and one beach chair were broken and need to be replaced. We still loved going to the beach almost day. I am already trying to schedule another trip to this home. Thank you to Giovanni and the owners for making this home available."
