Affordable and convenient - about sums up my experience. But then add private back porch with table, umbrella and chairs for outdoor living while watching the birds at feeders and enjoying the flower boxes and sunflower garden patch. Very cozy. Although I had my car, I could walk about eight blocks to just about everything, Main Street, restaurants, Bay, Opera House, Burns Square Cinema - you get the picture. Enjoyed attending Spring Training at the beautifully renovated Baltimore Orioles stadium - twelve blocks from apartment. Owners were particularly helpful in orienting me to the area and the many neighborhoods that make up Sarasota. I enjoyed my three month stay in the Squirrel's Nest.
