The highlight of the house is the large fully enclosed and covered lanai perfect for outdoor dinning. The home has a circular floor-plan with the living room and family room off the front entry way. The kitchen and dinning rooms complete the circle. The master bedroom with it's private bath is off the dinning room. The other bedrooms are off the family room, as is the second bath which also has an access to the lanai. The lanai has access from the master bedroom, dinning room and family room through sliding glass doors to bring the outside inside. The home also has utility room and enclosed parking for one car.
My wife and I, along with our two dogs, stayed for the month of February. We really like the house, especially the lanai. When we arrived, the owner, who lives right next door, was traveling abroad. Allen, his house sitter, was great and very responsive. When Fred and Jay returned home, they were very responsive and great as well. I highly recommend this rental. We would rent again next year, but someone else already had committed to a 6-month agreement.
Thanks Fred, Jay and Allen for your hospitality!

We had a great stay at this property. Nice safe neighborhood near golf course. The owner is very responsive and the house is very comfortable and full of art work. Wifi and cable were very reliable. Screened lanai with service window to kitchen is a nice feature.
The attentiveness of the owner was fantastic. The property was clean and inviting. The home's layout was ideal for my family's stay providing a restful setting and plenty of opportunity for everyone to comfortably spend time together. I would be happy to stay there again.
The whole house is decorated with arts and painting of very good taste, including the bedrooms. Kitchen is well equipped with modern microwave and stove, dishwasher, toaster, etc. Lanai is an execellent to have party dinners, play games (bring your tools - scrabble, card decks, etc.) or just to relax. For eating out we preferred opions in Downtows Sarasota, St. Armand and evem Siesta kyes hang outs, or a take out (many to choose from). Owner went out of his way to make us comfortable. Already recommended to family and friends for future vacations in Sarasota.
Overall the the home was clean, but thought I stepped back into the 1950's. No cable tv or Internet. In fact all tv's had rabbit ears. Very few channels available. Some inappropriate art on walls and left over food in cabinets and frig. Twin beds in master. Although close to the airport, it really wasn't too bad noise wise. Great location, close to all activities. Nice enclosed lanai. I can't really recommend this place until it is brought up to modern standards.
