And I thought Sweet Mango Manor was beautiful? The Bird House (right next door) reminds us of the kind of artist that Katherine is, and her attention to detail is what brings this place alive. It took me a full day before I noticed the Ringling Hotel plates in the mosaic backwash in the kitchen! My boyfriend and I were there for three days and I could hardly get him to leave the house because he was so busy looking at the little things that makes this place so beautiful. It's a quick drive (or a bike ride!) to Historic Downtown Sarasota and not far from the beaches. This place would be great for a family, or two couples traveling together.
