Wonderful home, owner, experience

  • 5 of 5

We just returned and can't recommend this home and owner enough. It's lovely, filled with art & light and warmth, has a library I'd love to explore for weeks and weeks (especially the art books), provides all amenities and is close to everything. No more than 5-15 min's to Siesta Key Beach, Downtown Sarasota (check out Morton's Gourmet Market), Ringling Art Museum, St Armand's Circle with international shops and fabulous restaurants, the Mote Aquarium, Captain Wayne and his Wolfmouth Fishing Charters in Bradenton Beach (3rd time and always a charm), Venice pier and Myakka Alligator park. Just not enough time to get to or mention everything. Ordered in supper one night and relaxed in the lanai (Valentino's pizza is amazing). Sooooooo many memories made to relish in coming winter back in WI. Enjoy. We definitely plan to again! Thank you John

LOVELY HOME WITH HEART

  • 5 of 5

Before booking this home last year I had literally searched hundreds of VRBO rentals as well as privately advertised accommodations for the area. There were many great options, but I kept returning to this homes advertisement. Something about it spoke to me. It seemed to have a heart...strange as that may sound. I have had a great deal of experience renting vacation spots over the years with a wide range of outcomes. Some were not anything like they were advertised (YUK) and some were much better than expected (WOW). I am pleased to report that there is absolutely no deception here. The home is exactly as advertised. It is warm, interesting and comfortable. The home is clearly loved and clearly has a great deal of personal meaning for the owners. Speaking of the owner, John could not have been more friendly or accommodating. He put a great amount effort and communication into seeing that our stay was comfortable. We stand in appreciation of such conscientious care. We love Sarasota and the Keys. We hope and look forward to many returns in the future and we will definitely rent John's home again and again. I can promise you...you will not be disappointed with this rental. It simply feels like a comfy home away from home. Thank you John !!! : )

Above and beyond expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Our one-month stay in John’s house was far beyond our expectations in everyway. His description and pictures on VRBO accurately portray what you will find the minute you walk into the house. It is spacious and the décor is highly interesting and personal, like you walked into John’s house for a visit. Beds are comfortable. The master suite includes sliding door access to the pool, a huge walk in closet with shelving, hanging and storage space and an oversized bath. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking and serving, including a Keurig. TV’s and cable options, washer and dryer, very high speed WiFi, beach umbrellas, a Weber grill, lanai lounging and dining furniture, a huge dining table off the kitchen, a separate office room and spacious living room made living in John’s house truly our home away from home. The pool isn’t for laps, but who does laps when they’re on holiday. You want to get wet, cool down, relax and have fun – this pool is perfect for that. We had friends come for a long weekend. They had a private suite, bedroom and bath, a walk in closet, and sliding door access to the pool. A pocket door off the living room allowed total privacy for all – perfect. The attached garage allowed for security of our car and bicycles for easy coming and going. We made the 3 block walk to The Red Bug Slough at least once every day for great exercise, bird watching and meeting locals out walking their dogs. John’s house is perfectly located to all the attractions Sarasota offers, Siesta and Lido Key beaches, Venice, Myakka State Park, 2 grocery stores, Target, Costco, Dunkin’ Donuts ☺ and shopping of every sort. His recommendations for restaurants were right on. John’s VRBO welcome page is extremely helpful at home and while away. John responded quickly to our e-mail when we had questions. He provides the daily newspaper – wow! We wouldn’t hesitate staying here again, even longer if we could get in. You won’t find a better value for your money for a worry-free accommodation. Recommended without reservation!

Great vacation home with private pool

  • 5 of 5

My sweetheart and I stayed at this home for an extended weekend while we attended the Dragon Boat racing that my mother-in-law was participating in. The home had everything you could need and the pool is awesome and just the right size to enjoy sunning and fun! John was very accommodating and was quick to respond to any questions we had during our stay. I highly recommend this home for anyone visiting the Sarasota area.

Why stay in a hotel when this home exists for a better price!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and our little dog just spent a wonderful week in this home. We were so comfortable there it truly felt like home, even our dog seemed completely at home! We were a very short drive to the most beautiful beach then we came home to our very own private pool. This home has every thing you need, right down to the cooler for the beach! Thanks so much John we hope to be back soon!

awesome!!

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time in this beautiful home!!! It is convenient to everything in Sarasota and very short drive to siesta key beach. The house has a serene and spiritual feel to it and a library nook with a lot of great titles. Bedrooms were spacious and master had a huge walk through closet as well as amazing views to the outdoor pool and lanai. The front yard has a unique landscape that sets it apart from other homes on its street as well as located in a great lil neighborhood. The house offers so much from books, kitchenware, towels, pool floats, Sarasota guides of everything from restaurants to attractions. I do plan on staying here every year I come to Sarasota and the owner is also very accomadating with your stay!! I suggest this place to anybody because it is wonderful experience!!! Will be back!
