We rented the Chauffeur's Cottage for 6 weeks. At the time the photos included were accurate. We were very pleasantly surprised to find, on arrival, that Brian had just completed a remodeling of the kitchen, living area and bathroom. The changes made the place perfect while not diminishing the fact that this is a very old building used to house the chauffeur to the Ringling family in the next door House of Ringling. The neighborhood is a 1926 subdivision which was the first golf course subdivision in Florida. Four homes within a 2 block area are on the Historic Register and Sarasota Bay is just around the corner. We found this to be a perfect location for exploring Sarasota, Cortez, and the beaches. It's very close to the airport which we found to be a plus when picking up visiting guests and my husband loved watching the planes. All in all a very nice place to escape the cold!

Owner's Response: Linda and Mel, were a delight to host. We were still adding the finishing touches as they arrived on New Years Eve. They were very patient ! I hope all was worthwhile. I saw pet walking taking place daily .. The neighborhood lends itself to walks by the bay and wonderful sunsets. The cottage has a nice set back and driveway, a lanai that you may sit and watch the world go by. When people discover the area, generally their response is wow ... I hope this lovely couple return !
