Why Mikealan or Jeff OKeefe chose Sarasota

WE chose this location because we hope to live there some day. It's the best location in Sarasota to have an active, engaging lifestyle. Downtown and close to the waterfront Harbor is like a dream come true. We have found when you get out and walk a few blocks, you see so much more and feel connected to the area. We think it's ideal for anyone who wants to enjoy the city, as well as beaches. We like to quietness of the street and neighborhood. The charming Historic Cottages and Bungalows with towering oak trees and lush tropical neighborhood reminds me of Old FLorida 25 years ago....

What makes this cottage unique

LOCATION and Sarasota's Chic Key West Style Cottage!

Walk 10 minutes in any direction and you will 100's of things to do.

WALK TO:

Waterfront Harbor with Chartered Fishing Boats, Boat rentals, O'Leary's Tiki Beach Bar, Marina Jack's Restuant (best place to watch sunset).

Guestbook comments from the owner

I have to be honest, we read the bad review posted by another guest and almost didn't book this cottage. But after speaking with the owners and they explained the situation we decided to take a chance. I'm so glad we did I can't believe anyone would leave this adorable place a bad review. It was lovely charming clean cute quaint everything as described. We had a wonderful honeymoon here and will always treasure the time that we spent. Absolutely loved it.

Family gathering was outrageously fun!!! rented all 5 cottages

  • 5 of 5
We had the best time gathering our family of all ages. The location offered something for everyone from young to old. We all went our separate ways getting into the downtown area and beyond. The owners supplied us with beach stuff that proved to save us hundreds of dollars PER DAY! Renting beach stuff, 1 chair and 1 umbrella is $46 PER DAY and we have a large group…this alone compensated for the rental prices! It’s a no brainer, stay here and save money. Plus free parking, Wi-Fi, movies and laundry. Cooking meals too. WE saved so much money as a group. The cottages were all adorable. The owners we great. We will come back every year because this was really great!

Sweet little spot!

  • 5 of 5
I loved staying in the rear Coral Cottage with its spacious backyard (greatly appreciated by my Chihuahua)and beautiful, comfortable furnishings. The pictures on the website are very accurate. The house is well equipped and pretty! It is so close to downtown but very quiet and in a charming neighborhood with lovely gardens and bungalows. I did not need a car because I walked to the bus terminal and visited from there, St. Armand's Circle and the Ringling Museum. There is so much to do in Sarasota! Relaxing and fun!

loved it - rented 3 cottages for a family reunion

  • 5 of 5
We rented 3 cottages for a family reunion. Everyone has a blast. All clean cute and well managed cottages. Nice outdoor areas too. Location the best, downtown and harbor are 10- 15 walk. Beaches are a quick drive, lots of parking there with easy load and unload. We liked Lido Beach the best cuz it has the beachfront swimming pool.

rented 2 cottages for our Motley Crew! Fun Fun Fun!!

  • 5 of 5
Loved it all!
We have a small get together of 6 people so we needed to rent 2 out the 5 cottages. All 6 of us had a blast. We went all over town, drinking, dancing, walking, biking, shopping, to the movies and even saw a play at the last minute. Never drove anywhere!
Both cottages were perfect. I highly recommend. Nice owners did so much of us. Thank you!
