GREAT Location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this comfortable home in Sarasota (family of five with grandmother too). We were walking distance to grocery and restaurants and enjoyed exploring the neighborhood. The beach is an easy drive away--although more traffic than we expected perhaps because of the holiday week. We especially enjoyed Libby's restaurant and Morton's grocery. Kids enjoyed the basketball hoop and outdoor area. The pool is solar heated, but was not very managed to swim only a couple of times. It's great that the house includes a number of bikes and beach supplies in the garage. I'd recommend that the bikes have some tune-ups-we had pedals fall off of two bikes and handlebars roll around on another bike. We looked for a wrench to tighten the pedals but couldn't find one! All in all, this home is a good value and the experience was enjoyable. Thanks--we'll be back to Sarasota!

Owner's Response: Thanks Lisa for the feedback. The bikes will be tweaked so that our guests can continue to enjoy biking around the wonderful Harbor Acres neighborhoods, the downtown marina and of course, St Armands Circle and the pristine local area beaches.

Fantastic Sarasota home

  • 5 of 5

My family, which includes our pet, had the pleasure of staying in this beautiful home for a week the end of May--first of June. I can assure you the home is everything the pictures display and more!!! The owners were very welcoming. They had a friend go over over the nuances of the home and even surprised us with a housewarming gift. The area is upscale and quiet. My husband brought his boat and was pleased with the easy access to Sarasota Bay. Although the home is comfortable beyond words, I especially enjoyed the outside living area (lanai and pool) which was great for morning coffee, swimming and just what every vacation is all about.....relaxing. This home and it's owners are five star, and if I could give a higher rating I would. If we return to the Sarasota area for vacationing, we'll definitely plan our stay in the Knagg's home.

Fabulous, amazing property! Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We spend our most amazing vacation in this magnificent house. We felt right at home as soon as we entered the property. It has everything you can dream of! Its spacious opened design allows you to enjoy every corner of the house. The swimming pool and patio area are fantastic. We spend lovely evenings doing BBQs, fishing from the back deck, swimming, relaxing & enjoying the sunsets. The view from the master bedroom into the gorgeous swimming pool and bay is picture perfect. Even a rainy day was welcomed as we had the chance to fully enjoy the house and discover the fantastic collection of music that the owner has. Our teenage kids went cayaking every day. Siesta Beach is just a short drive away, the sand is the whitest and finest we've ever seen. The location of the house can't be any better, walking distance from great restaurants, beauty salons & grocery stores. We enjoyed our daily walks in the up scale neighborhood and had a great time discovering the fantastic restaurants in the area. Our kids just loved the house and the whole family remembers this vacations with the most amazing memories. We just wish that Europe was not so far from Sarasota so we can visit more often. Definitely, a place to remember!
