Overview

Sarasota House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom, 2 bath with Covered Lanai, Expansive Heated Pool, Gardens, Koi Pond

VILLA ESPANOLA: Centrally located in the heart of Sarasota, and only minutes away from our world famous Siesta Key Beach, Villa Espanola offers a bright and cheerful retreat with a heated swimming pool and a privately fenced backyard. Perfect for larger families that enjoy the peaceful serenity of their own private garden and pool area, who love the closeness to not only Siesta Key, but the nightlife of Southside Business District and Downtown Sarasota.

INTERIOR AMENITIES: Villa Espanola is a three (3) bedroom, two (2) bath private home that features a huge screened-in lanai which opens out from the main living area. It is configured for maximum comfort and enjoyment for large families and parties who will find it colorful and adorned with original oil paintings and art work. Transform the already expansive living area into an even larger space by opening our stacking sliders and inviting the outdoors in… Or settle in for comfy cozy TV time with the family and friends with ample and comfortable seating, HDTV with hundreds of movie channels at the tips of your fingers. The nearby kitchen is a gourmet’s delight filled with granite tops and stainless steel new appliances. Every conceivable cooking gadget is there allowing you to enjoy anything from a quiet lunch together to preparing a feast for eight! And the kitchen is open to the family areas so the chef can still enjoy socializing with the whole group while cooking! You’ll love the kitchen and all of its features. Top rated. When its time to retire to the bedrooms, enjoy the privacy of a split plan, with the oversized master on one side and two bedrooms on the other end. Everyone enjoys their personal space with plush clean bedding, exceptional pillows, HDTV in every room, and space for personal work/play stations. The bathrooms are decadently appointed with new faucets, granite counters, and upscale cabinetry, and they are spotless! Lavish towels are plentifully provided and there are lots of oversized beach towels available as well. We provide all linens as well, which as you might expect, are extremely nice.

EXTERIOR AMENITIES: Connected to the living room, is the oversized screened-in lanai and an expansive, deep heated swimming pool. Enjoy a 2nd outdoor "living room" area inside the lanai and "belly up" to our authentic German-inspired handmade pub-style bar! With an outdoor refrigerator and lots of available storage, there is room at the bar for hosting a fantastic and fun get together! Two outdoor seating areas can also be enjoyed off to the side of the lanai, providing a perfect deck for sunbathing, and a secondary shady paver area under the oak tree for those who like a cool breeze and a great view of the pool. The backyard is completely fenced providing an extremely private setting, with a beautiful garden area and a cute little pond bursting with goldfish and koi. There are four bikes awaiting you in the garage. Since we are in the heart of Sarasota, why not take some time to explore our city in all of its greatness? We have a wonderful little insert in our guest handbook that provides the closest and most interesting "neighborhood finds." You are but two blocks from excellent restaurants and bars, such as Guillermo's Mexican, Webber's Hot Dogs, Francesco's Fine Dining, Solarzano's Pizza, Entersection Bar, Champions English Pub (home of the Dart Championships!) and more...

OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES: We highly recommend a neighborhood walk every morning to get invigorated for the day, but on your way back in, stop in the front yard and pop a few kumquats off the tree to get your daily Vitamin C dose... it’s as powerful as a cup of coffee! The neighborhood is also friendly to bicyclers. Restaurants and bars are just two blocks away and it makes for a nice easy walk. Our posh Westfield Shopping mall is only a mile down the road, a leisure drive around our Tuttle Avenue roundabout and on to Siesta Drive. Enjoy the most perfect steaks ever prepared at Fleming’s Restaurant, just around the corner!

BEACH, VILLAGE & LANDSCAPING: Siesta Beach, one of the world’s finest [rated No. 1 by TripAdvisor in 2015] is approximately 7 miles away west on Webber to Siesta Drive. You’ll love its crystal white quartz sand which remains cool in the summer and fine to the touch. It’s rare to find a fantastic vacation home on the mainland so close to the key. Excellent facilities are available at the main beach access and includes lifeguards, volleyball, morning exercise sessions, bathrooms, tennis, concession stand, bathrooms and plenty of parking. It is within easy driving distance and a beach cooler with plenty of beach chairs and beach towels are provided at Villa Espanola for an easy day at the beach. Siesta Key Village is approximately 5.5 miles from Villa Espanola. A leisure drive will get you there in 10 minutes. Plenty of restaurants, shops and night spots! Florida is known for its beaches, climate and foliage so this home features on its grounds an amazing amount of lavish tropical foliage to include many flower species as well as many fruit tree varieties. If you like plants and nature, you’ll love the grounds [almost like a botanical garden].

We welcome you to Villa Espanola and look forward to your visit!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Heather and Eric,



Thank you so much for the wonderful house for our vacation. You made us feel very welcome with the cupcakes! We had everything we needed and then some. The kids had a great time feeding the fish and swimming in the pool. We will be back and will hopefully be able to stay here again. BTW, I love the house decor and colors!

Great house and great owners

  • 5 of 5

The house is everything that it is advertised! The house is beautifully decorated and the location is great. It’s a short drive to the beach and within walking distance of many shopping and dining places. The house was fully stocked and the rooms were very comfortable. The best part is the living room and one of the bedrooms open up to the outdoor sitting and pool area. Eric and Heather are such great people. Their hospitality was outstanding. They provided cupcakes on our arrival and they also offered us a boat ride, which was so much fun. We really were able to see Sarasota from a different point of view and we were able to get to know Eric and Heather. My family and I will be staying there again for sure.

Great relaxing home!!!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked in with relaxing music playing, and a plate full of cupcakes we loved it from the start. Your house is perfectly located to Siesta Key and our new favortie place O'leary's Tiki Hut. We spent the majority of our time relaxing on the lanai and in the pool. The master bedroom was very comfortable and we slept very well. The book you left with all the area information was very helpful and we used it quite a bit to guide us. Meeting you and Eric made it even better. We loved the area so much we actually bought a house while we were there:) Hope to see you again soon. Linda & Chuck

Loved the house

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house and the warm welcome from Heather and Eric! The house has everything you need and is close to everything. We used the pool all the time if we weren't at the beach.

Eric and Heather are very nice and helpful and nothing is a problem. The house is in a calm neighbourhood, was clean and well maintained. We did not want to leave and hope to be back one day!!

We can recommend this property to everyone!

Everything we wanted for our spring break!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Espanola was everything we hoped it would be! A comfortable place with easy access to everything in the Sarasota area. The kitchen was well stocked, the bedrooms comfortable but the best part was the living area that opened up outside to the screened in pool! We came down for spring break and spent most days at Siesta Key beach but it was wonderful being able to come back after a day at the beach packed with people and jump into our own private pool.

Heather and Eric were great hosts. They were always available but never intrusive. They took us out for an afternoon of kayaking and we had a great time! They also were a great resource for places to eat and things to do. We highly recommend staying here!
