Why Barry & Sue Burston chose Osprey

We have been renting this property since 2003 but it still looks like new, very fresh and modern. We live here for up to 6 months of the year and only rent for a limited number of weeks to small groups to help cover the cost of our second home, we get around 30% plus bookings from regular clients which speaks for itself. This year 2015 we have had major upgrades all the kitchen appliances have been replaced with Stainless Steel appliances, we have had new ceiling fans in the Master, Lounge & Lanai along with a new Weber Gas Grill/BBQ for poolside cooking, two new real leather Cindy Crawford sofas. We are happy to provide references and recommendations from past guest and happy to speak to anyone if they have any queries, also our friend/neighbor next door is available should there be any emergencies so you can book our property with confidence and know you will get a safe and extremely comfortable property. We say "It's not a rental property it's our home which we are happy to share with caring people".

What makes this house unique

South facing pool overlooking a Lake close to beaches and Golf courses.

If you like cycling we are a safe cycle distance to the famous Legacy Cycle Trail miles of safe ridding traffic free and we have 4 cycle 2 male 2 female 2 were new 2015 available free.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Barry,

We had a fantastic holiday in Florida and thoroughly enjoyed staying in your beautiful

home. I have stayed in many villas in Florida, and yours was one of the best! We liked the area, spent a lot of time in Venice and Venice beach. We will definitely be back.

Just got home yesterday after a long weekend in New York. New York was very hectic, we are a bit tired and jet lagged today.

Thanks for everything!

Have a lovely Christmas!

Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

We have been spending holidays in Sarasota for the past 23 years and during this time have stayed in a variety of rental properties. The last two years we have stayed in Barry and Sue's beautiful rental in Osprey and really feel as though we have found our "home from home". They have, literally, provided everything a family would need to make their stay truly memorable. From the moment you enter the property you just know you are going to have the most enjoyable, relaxing holiday which you will never want to end. Everything in the villa, from the super comfy beds to the leather sofas and large screen TV's will not disappoint and the kitchen has every appliance you would ever need. The villa has a lovely pool/spa area which overlooks a tranquil lake and it is just so pleasant to sit out, at whatever time of day, soaking up the ambiance. There is also a BBQ if you want to cook outdoors. The villa is on a very quiet residential estate and is in the perfect location to enjoy local restaurants/shops, it is only a short drive to beautiful beaches and Siesta Key ( which is our all time favourite ) is easily accessible. Barry and Sue have even provided beach umbrellas/chairs etc for guests to use, which are an added bonus when in the intense Florida heat. Bikes are also available for guests to use and there are plenty of cycle paths to explore the natural habitat. As we now live in Australia ( originally from the UK ), it is a very long journey for us but we wouldn't have been doing it for so long if we hadn't fallen in love with Florida, the lifestyle and we can now add Barry and Sue's home to our list. We are now counting down the weeks to our next trip and cannot wait to see the improvements, we know, Barry and Sue have made to the villa.

A simply stunning villa in every way

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our first stay at this wonderful villa and requested a second stay whilst still there!

Having been fortunate enough to stay in some amazing properties all over the world we can honestly say that this is one of the very best. The villa is perfectly located - in a quiet and peaceful area with wildlife on tap and still near enough to everything the area has to offer in terms of beaches, restaurants, entertainment and shopping. An excellent balance. In terms of facilities the home lacks nothing and all the amenities are of the highest of standards and quality. Barry & Sue are perfect hosts and all arrangements and requests were speedily undertaken.

In summary, we would highly recommend this villa.

The Perfect Villa

  • 5 of 5

We Have stayed at this property on 3 occasions, each time our visit has been everything & more that we could have wished for. Every room is beautifully furnished. The home is maintained, decorated and equipped to a very high standard. The owners Barry & Sue have thought of everything to make guests feel at home. The beautiful pool area is amazing and looks out onto a lovely lake and we feel would put some hotel pool areas to shame.

We have found it to be in an ideal location, very convenient for beaches (Nokomis one of our favourites in Sarasota) shops and eateries.

We have loved every moment of staying here and never want to leave.

Owner's Response: Thanks Handyman, It's always a pleasure to have you stay at our Osprey property, when you come back in December 2015 you will see the number of upgrades we have had to ensure your future comforts which include new whisper quite fans in the Master, Lanai & lounge along with two new Cindy Crawford real leather sofas and new Stainless steel french door refrigerator, cooker, microwave and dishwasher. Outside we have a new Weber gas grill/BBQ. Thanks for staying

Fantastic property!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic property that lives up to the beautiful images online. The house is lavishly furnished and maintained very well. It was the cleanest and best cared for rental property I have ever visited. My family and I really enjoyed the pool area a great deal. Very relaxing.

The owner, Barry, was also a pleasure to work with and very responsive to my requests. Highly recommend this property!!
