This rental exceeded our expectations. Located minutes from Tamiami Trail with its various stores and restaurants but only minutes from the beach. The beach, a five minute walk from door to actual foot in water, was aboslutely beautiful, spacious and quiet. For more activities, walk on the beach for 10-15 minutes to the public beach. This apartment is well appointed and has been completely renovated and pleasantly decorated. Extremely clean and well stocked to meet any need from beach umbrella and chairs to flat screen, laundry detergent, toilet paper, grill, etc. The king size bed was very comfortable. This was a great find and we could not have been happier. It made our stay so much more enjoyable and really felt like this was my home away from home. We drove to Sarasota for dinner at El Grecos which served wonderful authentic greek cuisine. Closer by we dinned at Isan Thai Restaurant and were pleasantly surprised at their authentic home cooked fare, excellent. Brian was exceptional. He attended to all of our needs. Will return for sure and would highly recommend this apartment.
