Sarasota House Rental Photos and Description

Luxurious and relaxing 3 bedroom, 2 bath, sleeps 6-7 comfortably.

We refer to this Florida Home as 'Goldy Lox's West Wing on Bermuda Brook.' This comfortable mid-century Florida home is located central to all things Sarasota. We chose this home for its location and ease of access to beaches, downtown, shopping and restaurants. The home is easily accessed between Interstate 75 and coastal route 41. Southgate is a comfortable and sought after established community in the center of a great Florida mid sized city. The east wing is used by the owners. More on that later.

This beautifully decorated 3 bedroom, 2 bath home has everything you will need for an enjoyable stay. Our kitchen and baths have been upgraded to anticipate your needs. The property has undergone landscape renovations recently with future plans to be unveiled in the coming year.

The home has 3 entertaining areas. The Living Room with down filled sofa, two seater chair, TV, DVD, stereo, all with wireless surround sound. The Bar Room features a hand crafted bar, beverage refrigerator and 40' LED flat screen TV.

The new sitting pool is partially above ground creating additional sitting areas around its perimeter. It is totally screened in and furnished with table, chairs, infrared BBQ grill and a 32' LED flat screen outdoor TV.

Private Laundry room and visitor storage off the Kitchen included.

The owners maintain and reside in the attached in-law conversion apartment, referred to as the 'east wing', when in town. The home is appointed as a reflection of the owners comfortable and relaxing attitudes.

Bermuda Brook

  • 4 of 5

The house was beautiful and well kept. I was traveling with 4 teenagers and one 9 year old and the accomodations wrere perfect. Everyone loved the house and the location was great, far enough away from the crowd for downtime and close enough to get to both Lido and Siesta Key beaches within 10 minutes. The owners were very helpful and cheerful. I would definitely recommend this home to anyone traveling to the Sarasota area.

Owner's Response: Here is a copy of Carla's email to us: Your home was beautiful, perfect location and very clean and I really appreciated that. You and Lee were both very helpful during our stay and the kids all loved the house. I have already written and submitted a review recommending your home for anyone traveling to the Sarasota area. I will definitely keep you in mind if traveling to Sarasota again and in the Colorado area. Again thanks so much for helping to make our vacation great. We thoroughly enjoyed meeting all of you and appreciated the way you respected our home. The kids could not have been more polite and respectful. We are so glad that you enjoyed your vacation, please visit us again. Laura & Lee

Excellent rental

  • 5 of 5

Everything anyone needs - well furnished, fully stocked kitchen...even beach chairs, toys and towels. Very comfortable for 2 with a pet or a family of 6. We loved the location to everything-Beaches, shopping, resturants and downtown. Laura and Lee exceptionally attentive to every detail, question and provided wonderful recommentions. If a situation came up like the grill not heating up properly, Lee would be right over to take care of it.

You can't go wrong in renting this house for your stay in Sarasota.

They made our stay feel very natural and would rent from them again.

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

I had to come to Sarasota on business. This time I wanted to bring my family with me as I have a new born and didn't want to be away from her for that long. My husband had a great time with the kids, the pool was wonderful and the beach being so close was perfect. Loved that Publix was right down the street and well stocked kitchen was great for me because I came home to home cooked meals every night followed by excellent sleep because the beds were so comfy!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a nice review. I know that you are very busy with your expending position with work and a new born baby. We are very happy that the house worked out for the entire family. Please think of us in the future should you need a place to stay before relocating.

What a treasure!

If you are fortunate enough to stay at Bermuda Brook, it will be an experience you’ll count among your most enjoyable. The house is full of personality, charm, and style. It is extremely comfortable, more than fully equipped, ideally located, meticulously clean, and so much more. Bonuses include tons of fluffy white towels and free delivery from Francesco’s (GREAT Italian food). Bermuda Brook does not feel like a vacation rental ... it feels like home.

Also full of personality, charm, and style are owners Laura and Lee (plus their little Westie, Sauly). They are more like bed & breakfast hosts than landlords. Laura and Lee are gracious, extremely accommodating, helpful, and exude pride of ownership. Our family greatly enjoyed getting to know them, so we had several impromptu get-togethers. On the other hand, they totally respect your privacy if that is your preference.

We found the “cocktail pool” to be a divine concept! More like an oversized hot tub than swimming pool, there is plenty of room for friends and family to gather, both in the waist-deep water and on the seat-high ledge around it. The pool is a natural party waiting to happen, with a waterfall adding ambiance and privacy.

We spent March 2014 at Bermuda Brook and are just now writing this review – we wanted to keep this one-of-a-kind rental a secret so we could enjoy it every winter. Unfortunately for us, the word is out and other people are daring to rent OUR secret spot! We can't really blame them -- it IS a treasure!

P.S. Be sure to ask Laura and Lee about the giant birdcage!

What a find!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and teenage son and I recently stayed here while visiting family who have moved to Sarasota and we found the accommodations were absolutely wonderful. We were so glad we didn't rent a property on Siesta Key as it was Memorial Day weekend and it was a madhouse. Their home is well appointed, conveniently located and had everything we needed to make our vacation enjoyable. The house is situated in a quiet neighborhood and was a nice getaway from the hustle and bustle down on Siesta Key. We loved relaxing in the pool after a day at the beach. My son loved the connectivity of their WiFi, said it was better than what we had at home. Laura made sure that all of our needs were met and/or addressed. Glad she was there to show us how to work the fancy controls of the tub in the guest bath...a bit tricky, but other than that, everything else was perfect. It was nice meeting with her and we're looking forward to checking out her other property in Colorado next year. We'd definitely stay here again when our travels bring us back to Sarasota to see our family again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for acknowledging that our home deserves 5 Stars. We take pride in making sure everything is fresh and clean when our guests arrive. We are so glad you enjoyed your time here. I really enjoyed meeting you and your family. You would be happy to know that fancy French tub spout has been replaced with one that is user friendly, so no instructions needed in the future. We look forward to seeing you at our Chalet in Florissant, Colorado. Take Care, Laura & Lee
