We recently spent a fabulous werk in this home with our two Yorkies. The home is comfortable and welcoming with everything anyone could possibly need. The hot tub and pool are so very relaxing after an exciting day of sightseeing and the dogs romped in the secure yard for hours. The house on its own is great, but when you factor in the location it is phenomenal. You are only minutes from the amazing park by the bay ( you must try the Cuban sandwich at Marina Jack's there ), St. Armands circle and Lido beach. Just a short drive puts you in Siesta Key or on Anna Maria island. We are already planning our next stay! To top it all off, the owner is a dream to work with and always helpful.
We agree with Marge. We just completed our two week stay and it was one of my most relaxing vacations. The house is conveniently located to the beach, shopping and Sarasota Bay. We brought our kayaks and it is a easy walk to the bay (with a kayak cart). We made friends with three manatee's one day! My wife and I also enjoyed biking throughout the adjoining neighborhoods.
Peggy was great to work with and very prompt responding to any inquiries. Many thanks to Peggy for all her help. We will be back!

We really didn't want to leave! Our one week at this house was so relaxing, thanks to Peggy's anticipation of every need to make us feel like we were "home". The wifi was easy to set up and use; the cable TV in the LR and Master BR was robust with options; the 6' fence around the backyard (lot is nearly 1/3 acre) was perfect for our 2 Afghan Hounds to run free in yard; the pool and Jacuzzi were beautiful for R&R, and the beds were incredibly comfortable with luxurious linens and blankets. The owner is incredible. She has put together a house that feels like home. The HUGE walk in closet made it easy to unpack and settle in. Night lites throughout the house make it safe to wander around inside after dark (there's also an automated light on the pool at night). We would TOTALLY recommend this rental. It is a quiet neighborhood, within a short easy drive to Sarasota's attractions. We'll definitely go back. We've stayed at many Homeaway or VRBO homes on vacation, and this house was absolutely The Best!
Every detail of the description of this property is dead-on accurate and the owner couldn't be a nicer, more responsive person with whom to work. When we called with a minor problem, she was right there and available.
Outside, the great live oak in the front yard drips with Spanish moss. This is old Florida! The pool and spa are marvelous, the fenced yard is spacious and completely private. Located in a quiet neighborhood of diverse homes, it is a nice area for morning and evening walks (the beach is only 2 blocks away). We met some students from the Ringling School of Art and Design who were delightful companions as we watched those beautiful sunsets from Indian beach.
Inside the house feels spacious. The kitchen is stocked with essentials like salt and pepper, olive oil, etc. (a nice touch). The master bedroom suite is large and the master bed is do comfortable we'd go back to this house again just for the bed! The master bath has a large, walk-in shower, double sinks, and there's a large walk-in closet.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this house. 5 stars are well-earned!
All the reviews are correct. This is a lovely and comfortable home with a very attentive and kind owner taking care of any issues. The neighborhood is perfect for walks, bikes and sunsets. Close to downtown Sarasota and beaches. Very clean and comfortable. I would definitely recommend...but we already have it booked for next winter. We were very pleased and hate to leave to return to the cold of Wisconsin.
Great home with all you need, even beach towels. One trip to Publix grocery and your set for the coming weeks. Eat breakfast outside on the lanai and enjoy the privacy of the fenced in yard. Nice pool to cool down in those hot days & evenings. TV includes DVR so you can record any programs you don’t want to miss. Pool is enclosed so no worry of insects. Totally enjoyed our stay. Quiet neighborhood near Route 41
Old Florida neighborhood, two blocks to a public-access bayside park. This is a walking neighborhood, quiet and lush, thirty blocks to the Ringling Museum and the Asolo Theater, and a four-minute drive to downtown Sarasota. Beautiful Lido Beach is a seven-minute drive; St. Armand's Circle about five. The Ringling College of Art and Design is within walking distance, and New College and USF are a few minutes by car. University Parkway, a major shopping corridor, is about 10 minutes by car.
