We rented this home in Sarasota for 2 months site unseen. The photos are excellent but did not show how well furnished, clean and beautiful this home is. This was our first vacation as a snowbird and we could not be happier with the choice we made. Not only were Rich and Donna down to earth people, we will leave here thinking of them as family. They let us pick oranges from their tree in the back yard and we enjoyed fresh squeezed orange juice every day. The grapefruit tree is also sweet and tasty.
Siesta Key beach is so close and ranked #1 in the USA. We walked this beach along with South Lido Beach, Turtle Beach and Venice Beach. We also brought our bikes and rode on the Legacy Trail, Myaka Park and great neighborhoods in the area.
Rich and Donna recommended all the sites to see such as Ringling Arts Museum, Mote Aquarium, Marina Jacks, which were all terrific. We loved Big Olaf's ice cream and Yoder's fruit market both on Bahia Vista Drive. We ate breakfast and lunch at Peach's restaurant. We took drives to Venice, Ft. Myers, Naples, and Longboat Key. We saw Music Man at the Venice theatre. We got to watch our Kentucky Wildcats play in the NCAA on the big screen tv in the living room. Much larger than we have at home. We were concerned that we might get bored during a 2 month stay but not for one minute.
If you want a clean and roomy place to hang out, quiet residential area only minutes from everything---this is the place. You won't regret it.
Thank's for a wonderful experience!!!!!!
We rented this property for two weeks in July and first of August, 2013. We enjoyed our stay very much.
The house was comfortable and clean. Very quiet neighborhood off the beaten path. The only drawback is no internet or wifi. The owners were very friendly and we enjoyed getting to know them.
If we ever need to stay again in Sarasota, we will look them up.
We stayed at this house in Jan, Feb, and Mar 2013. The house is generally well maintained in a middle class neighborhood. The streets are clean and neighbors quiet. A bathroom sink had a very slow drain. The kitchen eat-in area is light and pleasant but the kitchen work area is very dark, so we purchased two clip-on lamps which helped a little. The roller on one old kitchen drawer broke so it was unusable. The dishwasher rack needed repair to keep it from falling down. The owner suggested using glue, but became angry when he didn’t like the way we used it. He “fixed” it but it fell apart again so we just didn’t use the dishwasher. The yard is nicely landscaped by the owner, who lives next door, although we didn't appreciate his constant peering through our windows. He was very nice in the beginning. But then after strongly encouraging us to give him a large deposit for next year (which we did) he became rude and unpleasant to deal with, to put it mildly. He declined to rent to us and tried to keep next year’s deposit in case we wrecked his home this year which we told him is an illegal repurposing of funds. (btw, we took superb care of the home, we even washed all the windows. The minor problems mentioned above are just part of an aging house and we did not create these problems.) The owner also did not refund our deposit for this year until we threatened to sue under Florida Statute 83.49. We strongly do not recommend this rental.
