Overview

Cortez Studio Rental Photos and Description

Studio, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Enjoy peaceful waterfront relaxation in our new carriage-house. This studio is the entire second floor of the building and one large open, bright sun filled room. For those who want to sleep in, there are custom room darkening drapes to keep the light out. The solar heated chlorine free pool separates it from the main house. There are vaulted ceilings, travertine floors, and granite countertops throughout. It features a coastal cottage kitchen and dining area with window seat. Enjoy the expansive view while relaxing on the leather couch in front of the 42' flat screen HD TV. Just steps away from the Queen size Murphy bed is your large private balcony overlooking the pool and with breathtaking views of Sarasota Bay. Relax in the Adirondack chairs on the balcony while sipping your morning coffee and basking in the Florida sunshine.

We live on the property and constantly maintain our home. The Carriage House is detached and separated from the main house by the pool and courtyard. Though we usually greet you upon arrival and answer any questions, you can enjoy your privacy.

This non-smoking and no pets Key West style studio is a private paradise and yet centrally located. This is an adults only property.

Shopping, beaches, great restaurants and fresh seafood are minutes away. Visit historic Cortez fishing village, Longboat Key, and Anna Maria Island which are also just minutes away. St. Armand's Circle and Sarasota are also easily accessible.

Instant access to water activities such as fishing and kayaking are available to guests. Just sit by the water's edge and look for dolphins and manatees or read a book. Kayaks can be launched directly from the property! A gas grill is also available for guests to use.

Please be sure to read some of our traveler reviews from our previous guests.

About The Owner

I am an artist and native Floridian and I met my husband Joe (from New Jersey) while in college in Tampa. We found the local beaches to be a well kept secret 20 years ago. As founders of a worldwide ministry called Hearts Afire, we have chosen to share God's blessing of our location with others.

The Owner purchased this studio in 2007

Why The Owner chose Cortez

This vacation rental is a separate building on the other side of the swimming pool from the main house. We feel like we live in Paradise.

What makes this studio unique

We personally manage this unique property to high standards.

The property looks out to a nature preserve island and a pristine Florida wildlife habitat. You have a view from your deck of Longboat Pass bridge and many islands. What we like most about this property is the wide variety of wildlife like roseate spoonbills to the white pelicans that migrate here for the winter. Early morning kayaking on the bay, relaxing with a cup of coffee on the deck with long range bay views, and soaking in the sun in the lounge chairs is true Florida living. Or just curling up with a good book on the window seat. When you are ready to venture out the beach is just 2 miles and many great places to eat.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Jim and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your carriage house. What a beautiful environment you have created. We especially enjoyed sitting on your deck and looking out on lovely Sarasota Bay, watching the natural world go by, eating the bountiful fresh seafood from Cortez fishing village, walking on the beaches of Anna Maria Island, visiting the Ringling Museum in Sarasota and much more. Thank you Rhonda and Joe. It was a memorable time for us. Sincerely, Joan 3/16/11

Loved Every Moment

  • 5 of 5
What a place! We loved it. The apartment was immaculate, the kitchen completely equipped with all we needed, including very good coffee. The bathroom also immaculate with all kinds of soaps, shampoo, blower, towels, you name it. The studio is very close to everything including Cortes Village and a number of restaurants (loved Jose's Authentic Cuban Restaurant which is about a mile away on Cortes Ave, across from the 7/11; For breakfast, the Sage Biscuit Cafe). Also, right around the corner of the street to the house there is a fresh produce and fruits small shop that sells the best salsa). What can I say, the views from the porch, the chairs on the dock, the kayaks, everything was as perfect as I had hoped and more including the privacy of the place, while still being close to Joe and Rhonda's, the owners. Speaking of the owners, you won't find better owners, helpful and available for anything we needed and suggestions for restaurants and things to do close by. We felt as if we were with family and it feels now like we have some new great friends. We are certainly starting to think when we will be back at the Carriage House. Thanks Joe and Rhonda!!!

The Carriage House was very upscale and comfortable. Every detail was considered and we lacked for nothing. The weather was cool but we still enjoyed the deck, pool area and even had the kayak out on the bay. This vacation spot was not in the hub of things but an easy drive or bike ride to restaurants, the beach and the baseball field. We'd highly recommend a stay here!

Abolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I just returned from our stay at the Carriage House and found it to be absolutely perfect. We couldn't have asked for more. This was our first experience finding a location in Florida through VRBO, and it was a GEM!! From the description and photos to the accommodations and ammenities, this was a vacation that we will remember. We found it to be centrally located to beaches and other area attractions. Although the weather was a little chilly, we were able to go kayaking one day and enjoyed time around the pool and on the sunny deck. We would recommend the Carriage House to couples who want peace and quiet to return to after a day at the beaches. Thank you Joe and Rhonda for making our Christmas Break so wonderful!!

Could not have been better

  • 5 of 5
The owners have provided everything needed for an enjoyable stay from the cleanliness, decor, kitchen equipment, small touches, quality products not to mention the pool/hot tub and the location. You will not be disappointed. I loved the upper deck for enjoying the view and a cup of coffee in the morning.

Great place to vacation

  • 5 of 5
The place was more than we expected. The house was clean and confortable. Everything was excelent quality and condition from sheets to sliverware. I was slightly concerned when I booked this place that because the owners house is right there that we would't have our privicy but the opposite was the truth. We had the pool all to ourselves. I highly recommend this place as an alternitive to a resort.

Wonderful retreat!

  • 5 of 5
We spent last week at the Carriage House in Bradenton. It was a beautiful property and the owners went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. There was a comprehensive list of local restaurants for us to peruse, as well as a compilation of area activities.
The setting is gorgeous, as is the pool. Afternoon adult beverages were enjoyed both on the deck overlooking the water, and on the dock watching the fish jump.
The Carriage House was well-stocked. It was clear that much thought went into this property to make it welcoming for visiting guests. We were able to grill and enjoy a meal poolside with some friends.
And the location....super quiet and peaceful!
Highly recommend this place for a couple who needs to get away and relax!
