Overview

Sarasota Townhome Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms, Entertainment Room & Hot Tub, with 2 Community Pools

Minimum 60 day rental is available at this most desirable property.

This Luxurious 'Treehouse Gem' is located in one of Sarasota's most beautiful and desired gated waterfront communities, “The Landings', ideally situated close to Siesta Key Beach, top restaurants, sport bars, night clubs, spas, shopping, sightseeing attractions and cultural events. The Landings is one of Sarasota's hidden treasures where streets are lined with lush tropical landscaping rarely found elsewhere. Nestled amongst mature palms, oaks dripping with spanish moss, magnificent banyon trees and Roberts Bay, this community brings nature and an active lifestyle together with on-site tennis, a fitness facility, pools, clubhouses, nature trails, walking and bike trails. Full membership into the exclusive Landings Racquet Club is included in this rental. This unique property appeals to those seeking a private, safe and stress-free escape into the rich South Florida culture and lifestyle. It is not your typical rental experience. This is a lifestyle experience wherein your Florida vacation is made complete with a home base which turns the simple act of being at home or returning home a delight in itself.

Built specifically to preserve and protect the vegetation and sea shells that were discovered while excavating, the Treehouse is situated in, around and under the canopy of a mini tropical forest.

The Treehouse's expansive great room with vaulted ceilings and skylights and the gourmet kitchen lead onto screened decks/lanais, allowing you to fully enjoy the botanical oasis which surrounds you, essentially bringing the outdoors in. The sights and sounds of the very rich flora, fauna and birdlife will delight you from every room. The living room, dining room, entertainment room, kitchen, 3 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms are fully equipped and tastefully decorated to meet all your needs. End your day in paradise, relaxing in your unique environment, or the Treehouse pool just steps away.

Full Membership into the exclusive, on-site Landings Racquet Club is included in this rental. There is something for everyone to enjoy in this Club, with 2 clubhouses. For tennis lovers, it's a dream come true with 8 first-class har tru courts, a full-time tennis pro and shop. Join one or more of the local leagues, round-robins, tennis cardio classes, competitions or simply play for fun with other residents. For many members, the emphasis is on fun and social interaction. For the more competitive player, there is a lot of competition to challenge you. The club has a heated/cooled Junior Olympic size pool, hot tub and sauna, fitness facility, lending library and active social calendar. If all you want to do is sit back and relax, this is a great place other than the Treehouse to enjoy the beautiful surroundings and new friends you are certain to make. Please note that the photo of the tennis courts do them no justice as they have been replanted with mature palms and lovely plantings.

Situated on Roberts Bay and the Gulf, this community offers water enthusiasts the opportunity to canoe, kayak, power boat and fish on-site. Access to the bay for canoes and kayaks is steps away from the Treehouse, as is the underutilized treehouse pool, which is heated in winter. You can always choose to walk to the heated in winter, cooled in summer Clubhouse pool.

Beach lovers will be thrilled with Siesta Key Beach, voted the #1 beach in America for many years. It's world famous for its' quartz sand, which feels like powdered sugar between your toes. You can bike or drive to the beach. There are also many other great beaches to explore, all within close proximity.

Golfers are spoilt for choice, with premier golf courses such as Legacy Golf Club designed by Arnold Palmer and Tatum Ridge designed by Ted McAnlis. Within close proximity, there are many clubs to choose from. The only attraction that comes close to outshining Siesta Key's beaches are the championship golf courses that dot the coastline. Avid golfers can test their skills at some of the country's most challenging course layouts. For those who view golf as more of a relaxing getaway, there are plenty of public golf courses designed for both novices and pros, all a short distance away.

Nature enthusiasts never have to leave The Landings. You can walk, rollerblade or cycle the on-site trails. End your hike at the nature trail's gazebo and be entertained by the activity on the water. Spot the dolphins, manatees, flying fish and varied bird life including Roseate Spoonbills. Cast a line and see what comes up. There are over 4.1 miles of walking trails on the property alone. Or, head to The Legacy Trail where you can walk or bike 12 miles from Sarasota to Venice. This is one of many walking/biking trails in the area. Nearby Myakka River State Park offers hiking, birding, kayaking amongst mangroves, exploring treetops on the canopy suspension walkway (suitable for all ages) or simply have a picnic in the park. Further afield is the world famous Everglades National Park. Shelby Botanical Gardens with it's famous orchid exhibition and collection of tropical plants is a great resource in identifying plants you may have difficulty recognizing. It also has spectacular views of Sarasota Bay.

Siesta Key Village has a relaxed beach atmosphere with outdoor restaurants, ice-cream parlors, live entertainment, beach themed shops and a casual dress code. Minutes away are Downtown Sarasota and St Armand's Circle, the cultural centre of SW Florida. European charm is evident in the outdoor cafes and restaurants, ice-cream parlors, thriving art scene and varied cultural attractions. Restaurants range from 5 star to street-side cafes and pubs. The shops are also varied with a number of world famous upscale boutiques. The Saturday Sarasota Market is one of many not to be missed, with local crafts, food and entertainment.

This 'West of the Trail' (Tamiami Trail) property is paradise found. This is a fabulous property in a first-class neighbourhood, located in one of the absolute best towns in the United States.

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5
This home is beautifully decorated and the owners went over and above to make our staff comfortable and enjoyable. This unique treehouse is nestled in the outdoors so the feeling really is being in a treehouse. Every morning we were awaken by the singing of the birds, which is a great way to start out the day.
We used the Fitness Center nearly daily that was a short walk from the house.
The pool is only steps away from the front door and many days, it was just my husband and I using this beautiful pool.
Centrally located to shopping, restaurants, downtown Sarasota and Siesta Key.
It was the quickest two months as everything was perfect.
This home is very clean and well maintained - the kitchen is a dream to cook in.
We would highly recommend this lovely home. Mike & Joyce

Excellent Property: great location and very cosy

  • 5 of 5
As a group of four adults and two young kids arriving from Hungary, we quickly settled in and found home away from home in this great house. Some of the things we loved about it:
- You almost do not even see nearby houses from the patio so dense is the vegetation around. Feels like you are in the jungle and creates a great sense of privacy.
- The hot spa on the patio is also something we enjoyed almost every day, listening to the "noises of the jungle".
- The kitchen is truly luxurious and really nicely equipped, ready for any kind of cooking.
- Everything is so close: minutes from downtown (Main Street is actually quite nice) and several great beaches.

The owners provided excellent service and helped us through every step of the process from rental agreement to getting our car pass for the main gate. They were really helpful and responded quickly to any questions.

I would definitely recommend this rental to anyone looking for a property in Sarasota or Florida in general.

Wonderful vacation! Treehouse has ambiance,warmth

  • 5 of 5
We loved this property. The setting and location were perfect for us. The decor's warm tones create a lovely ambiance, the treehouse is well equipped and so comfortable.
My favorite activity was relaxing in the lanai after the day's excursion. Such a spectacular view, feeling as though I was in the middle of an exotic jungle,not in a gated, lovely community.
The amenities at the clubhouse are excellent. Tennis was fun, trails were explored,outdoor pool, so close to treehouse, was thoroughly used and neighbors so friendly and helpful.
The area is outstanding. The miles of beach has sand as soft as warm icing sugar, glorious sunsets, and great people watching.
Sarasota is a lovely town, village feel with good shopping and yummy restaurants.
Interesting day trips to the surrounding areas.
Thanks you so much for sharing your lovely home. When I return to Sarasota, this treehouse will definitely be my choice. I am recommending this property to all my friends who wish to visit the area.

Thanks again for providing a great home away from home,
Susanne Simon

Outstanding vacation

  • 5 of 5
Our first visit to Sarasota could not have been better. The accommodation at The Landings was out of this world. Situated in an outstanding gated community, the house was different to the normal accommodation in its location and décor. Situated in a tropical setting as a Tree House, if gave the impression of being in a far off sub tropical paradise and yet so close to all local amenities. Tastefully decorated and furnished, you could not wish for more. It has covered outdoor verandas at front and rear allowing one to enjoy a breakfast amongst the trees without being bitten. The rear decking has a hot tub to while away those aches and pains from all the sport or exercise you could wish to do.

The facilities in the complex were first rate with eight tennis courts and a lovely outdoor swimming pool, which complements the smaller more private outdoor pool provided for the few tree house guests a few steps away from your accommodation. All in all one could not have wished for a more secluded and relaxing holiday yet with so much on your doorstep.

Everything and more

  • 5 of 5
Thank-you Connie and Jeff for 3 months of feeling "at home" while actually being many miles away. Your home is beautifully decorated and furnished with attention to detail, fulfilling all our needs. The setting is exquisite, feeling like a tropical island resort, yet with all the amenities that Sarasota offers.
This was our third visit to Sarasota, but our first off the beach. We enjoyed the peace and serenity we came home to after a day at the beach or sight-seeing. We also loved being part of a wonderful community as everyone was so helpful, kind and welcoming.
There were many days we were happy to stay home and enjoy the fantastic facilities and various activities at The Landings Racquet Club and in the community itself.
We found we did so much more on this trip than our previous visits as we had such a fantastic home base in a great location, close to everything. There are so many restaurants locally and the beaches and sight-seeing attractions are a short drive away.
This home is everything it says it is and so much more. The description and photos on the website listing are excellent, but in reality, it is so much better. It is an oasis which I don't really want to share with others as I want it all to myself, if I have the good fortune to return to Florida. But, here I am writing a reveiw because the "better side of me" knows that a gem should be shared.
