We had three families (consisting of 8 adults and 6 kids) who stayed in this home very comfortably for a week! We arrived a little early and the cleaning staff was there. She was nice enough to let us keep our bags in the garage while we ventured out in the area. Upon our return, the house was clean and the bed linens were left on our beds to prepare. Some were actually still in the dryer. That was good for us as we wanted to make sure things were clean and in order. The owner was a pleasure to deal with, the house was very spacious, fully stocked with all the amenities. The location is perfect! Walking distance to the beach and to St. Armand Circle. However, a vehicle is necessary to be able to go shopping for necessities. Also the pool is on the small side but sufficient. We look forward to returning next year!!
If location is important, then this is the house for you. You can walk to the beach and St Armand's circle within 5 minutes. The house is also quite spacious. We found it to have a bit of a musty smell upon entering, which could be due to being closed from the long winter. The kitchen has a very nice island and lots of counterspace, with four bar stools, which unfortunately are well worn and need some new padding. The pool is nice, but a bit smaller than expected. Most of the afternoon sun is shaded by the house so it's perfect for those wanting a shaded patio. We thought the pool was going to be heated but you must request it apparently. Just a heads up so you don't make the same mistake we did.
This is a beautiful house in an excellent location. It far exceeded our expectations,the whole process from booking to our holiday was made very easy by the owners who always replied promptly to any queries that we had. I would recommend this house without hesitation to anybody wanting a larger property for a family group. The beach is only a 5 minute walk away as are the lovely shops,bars and restaurants of St armands Circle. Downdown Sarasota is a short drive away or you can always hop on the local bus if you wish!!
Our stay was wonderful! The house was nicely stocked with everything we needed. We had a party of nine and we very comfortable. My only suggestions are that a rail is needed for the pool; my mother needed assistance when stepping in and getting out due to her arthritis and the grill racks needed to be replaced. The location was excellent for walking to shopping and nightlife.The beach was beautiful and clean. I will definately stay again, Thank you Jerry and Krisztina!
What an excellent time we had! Myself, my wife, her sister and husband each of us with teen daughters were joined by my mother/father in law for a week of fun and relaxation. The house was perfect as it gives everyone enough space to relax but allowed for everyone to be together. Having a bedroom on the 1st floor made it perfect for my inlaws as they didnt have to worry about stairs. Having all the beds being Queen size or better was nice as nobody got stuck taking the "small bed". The pool in the back was awesome. The 5 minute walk to the Circle was right up our teens alley. Morning and sunset walks on the beach were memorable. The owners were very gracious and easily contacted via phone or email. We would recommend this house to anyone looking to rent in the area and we would be interested in doing it again in the future.
This home was perfect for our family reunion which involved a great grandchild all the way up to us older folk. Having a downstairs bedroom and bathroom is so ideal for someone not easily able to navigate stairs. The home is very large and accommodated our family perfectly, it was clean and nicely decorated, the new landscaping is pretty. The close proximity to the beach and St. Armands Circle eliminates the need for a daily car ride. Many restaurants and shops, the beach is beautiful anytime of the day. A short car ride to the new Publix Grocery Store (now that's an interesting place with the carts coming down an escalator since the store is on the second floor with covered parking below). The sunset cruise on Le Barge on Sarasota Harbor, near to Marina Jacks is great, our family enjoyed it tremendously. We would highly recommend this property to all our friends and family.
