About Erin & Eric

We're both from the South. I'm from Florida, he's from Alabama. We love Florida's beaches and enjoy having pleasant weather all year-round. With careers in the military and foreign service, this home allows us to put down roots in a part of town that has it all: old Florida charm, downtown access to restaurants, shops, and culture, & proximity to the beach!

Erin & Eric purchased this house in 2013

Why Erin & Eric chose Sarasota

This home is a gem in a neighborhood of similarly restored historic houses affectionately known as the Painted Ladies of Gillespie Park! We loved the care and positive energy that the previous owners brought to the house and hope to continue the tradition. By inviting guests to enjoy the house, we hope the home will continue to be filled with love even during the times we're unable to enjoy it ourselves.

What makes this house unique

Amazing downtown location. Beautifully-cared for home. Historic Florida charm. Modern amenities include central air-conditioning, washer/dryer, dishwasher, and more.

Such a delight!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at the Tangerine Dream in October/November. We had our 2 year old son with us, and the house worked very well for kids! The locations is great, you can walk to Whole Foods and the Main Street with restaurants and shops. There is also a Publix close by. If you are travelling with kids we can definetly recommend Payne Park close by, they have an excellent playground. The beaches are also close by, Lido Beach and Armands Circle is only short drive away. The next door neighbor is very kind and helpfull! The house was clean and well looked after. There are great beach items, leg tent, beach chairs and so on, to borrow in the garage. The property managers as well as the owners were very nice and quick to respond to any questions we had. We got a very warm and nice welcome from Carl and Marie, the property managers.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the review! We are always excited to hear when our home is the starting point for another family to create great Sarasota memories! Thanks for the tip about the playground at Payne Park. We haven't been yet, but it's nice to learn about another fun spot in the neighborhood.

Sarasota Delight

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I had a wonderful and relaxing 17 day, 16 night stay at the Tangerine Dream. There is a saying in real estate about "…location, location, location." Well, you would be hard pressed to beat the location of this house. It is very convenient to Main Street and all that Downtown Sarasota has to offer. Also, nearby is a wonderful park (Gillespie) and the Selby Library. You have a choice of a Whole Foods or Publix grocery stores close by. There are a large number of great dining options close by. You are not far from the water, including beach areas and marinas. The Sarasota airport is less than a 15 minutes drive. There are several major roadways within easy access to and from the house. The house itself is a nicely decorated and fully furnished home. The feel one immediately gets is it is a very comfortable place. We had friends stop by and they all felt the same way. There is a nice outdoor area with a table and chairs, as well, a hammock. The neighborhood is a quiet residential area. Carl, the Property Manger is outstanding. He is a pleasure to deal with. Erin. the owner, is also a pleasure to deal with. She provides very helpful and detailed information about the house, operations of various systems, including the cable & internet, the washer & dryer and the HVAC. If you have any questions, Erin or Carl are readily available to assist. If you are looking for a vacation stay that has charm and is in a home, then, we would highly recommend you consider the Tangerine Dream.

Adorable House, Perfect Location, dog friendly

  • 5 of 5
I had the pleasure of staying at the "Tangerine Dream" for two months this winter. This house was perfect for myself and my dogs.

The description of the house is very accurate, it is as nice, if not nicer than the photos depict. The house was very clean and obviously well maintained. The property manager was a delight to work with.

It is within walking distance to downtown and wonderful restaurants. Whole Foods is 3 minutes by car. The neighbors were very very pleasant and adored my dogs. There is a lovely park down the street. The beaches are 10 minutes away, and for those that love birding, Celery Field is 10 minutes east.

The owner was very helpful, with the whole process and I had my security deposit back within a day of my departure.

I was very sad to leave the Tangerine Dream...

Charming Gillespie Park Cottage

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed in the Tangerine Dream cottage the last two weeks of January. The owner, Erin, was very helpful and responsive throughout the booking process and Carl, the property manager, met us when we arrived and was available to answer questions during our stay. The cottage is a beautifully restored 1920's old Florida bungalow, well-equipped and immaculate, with an outdoor eating area and hammock. Our only regret was that the weather wasn't warm enough to use it as much as we would have liked!
This is a wonderful location, within walking distance to downtown and close to good restaurants, Selby Botanical Gardens, many cultural attractions (Ringling Museum, Van Wetzel Performing Arts Center), and beaches. We enjoyed The Legacy Bike Trail between Sarasota and Venice and kayaking from Lido Beach. A trip to St. Petersburg for the Dali Museum and Chihully Collection was also a highlight.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Barbara and Jurgen. We're so glad that you enjoyed your stay in the Tangerine Dream. We haven't had the chance to try that bike trail you mentioned, but now you've given us yet another way to enjoy the Florida sunshine. We hope to see you back in the future!

Great Place, Great Location!!!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at the Tangerine Dream over the Christmas holiday. This was the first time we rented a vacation home on VRBO, and it was a GREAT experience. The owners were extremely helpful and responsive and fun to work with. The home was absolutely immaculate and has been beautifully updated while maintaining the charm of the early Florida days....it was a very comfortable place to stay. We would describe the neighborhood as "eclectic"...some homes have been restored while others are still a work in progress, but everyone of the neighbors that we met (and we met quite a few when we were out each day walking our little dogs) were very friendly and offered to help if we needed anything at all. The house is well stocked with necessary items...all we had to buy was groceries and a few supplies. The property manager met us there when we arrived and showed us around and explained everything. The owners also sent a well-written fact sheet by e-mail before we arrived, and everything went very smoothly. There were also a number of magazines and informational booklets on activities, restaurants, shopping, etc. for us to use. During our stay we had several friends that live in the area stop by, and they ALL thought the house was fantastic...again, a lovely "old Florida" type of experience. We would not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone...thank you Erin for making our week a special stay!
