Overview

Sarasota Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 BR, 1 BATH; NEAR SOUTHSIDE VILLAGE; EASY ACCESS TO DOWNTOWN OR SIESTA KEY.

This is a top-of-the-line, newly renovated one bedroom, one bath apartment that is part of a 'duplex' (side-by-side QUIET apartments with separate private entrances and a shared backyard space and laundry facilities). Please see VRBO.com # 560385 listing for the rental property next door.

The location is ideal--situated between Siesta Key (a 5 mile drive) with it's world famous white sand beach (recently voted the best in the country!) and it's quaint 'Village' shopping area filled with casual dining places and pubs, and Lido Key, (a 6 mile drive) equally famous for St. Armand's Circle with it's many upscale shops and restaurants.

Your vacation home was built in the 1920's, but has been totally renovated inside in a contemporary style, while maintaining it's cottage charm on the outside. The new kitchen cabinets and appliances include a refrigerator with an ice-maker & filtered water, built-in microwave and a dishwasher. It is fully equipped with all sorts of utensils, dishes, glassware, pots and pans and small appliances--everything you need if you enjoy cooking! The bath is newly renovated with ample storage and new fixtures. The bedroom is large and features a queen-sized bed with storage drawers beneath, a four drawer dresser, and mirrored closet space with plenty of hangers. The open living/dining area is spacious and inviting with leather couch, wicker side chairs, large coffee table, and a dining table that accommodates four comfortably. The space also contains a work station computer area with two seats and built-in WiFi. All floors are solid, eco-friendly bamboo wood--except for the bath which is tiled. There is a fenced-in private rear yard with a gas grill for outdoor barbecues, table and chairs for dining, and a washer/dryer in a separate building. The small private front porch with it's two chairs & table is a delightful spot to relax at the end of a busy day.

The street location is extremely quiet, despite it's close proximity to all types of interesting diversions. There is a wonderful public park just a 2 minute walk away from you. It is loaded with amenities such as an Olympic-sized swimming pool, 4 tennis courts, indoor & outdoor basketball courts, a vibrant open pickle ball league ,fitness center, and waking/jogging trails.

You are one mile to the Southside Village which has many diverse restaurants, pubs and Morton's Market, a gourmet grocery store with fresh produce and ready-made items to take out, and also a very tempting bakery. Your other option for groceries is Publix, a fully stocked supermarket just 1 1/2 miles away.

Downtown Main Street, again with a wide selection of diverse restaurants, shops, and nightlife is 2 miles from your doorstep, and it is only three miles to the downtown waterfront with boat rentals, park, and two restaurants with waterfront dining (a casual outdoor one, and one a bit more 'fancy' called Marina Jack's which also has a dinner sunset cruise boat). Golfers will have the choice of a dozen well-maintained courses, all in a 10 to 30 minute drive. There are also two executive courses (18 hole, par 3 shorter courses)--one a 5 minute drive the other only 10.

All in all, the apartment offers peace and comfort while still being only minutes from all the action that Sarasota has to offer. Come join us and see for yourself.

About KIT

My wife and I are both former teachers, originally from New Jersey, and have been living in Sarasota for over 30 years where we are currently running a construction remodeling company. (My family was in that business and it was my summer job since I was old enough to help mix cement). We love to travel and always use VRBO to find great lodging.

KIT purchased this apartment in 2007

Why KIT chose Sarasota

We purchased our first Sarasota home in the 1980's in this area and found the neighborhood to be a most versitile location. It is a short drive to Siesta and Lido Keys with great beaches and restaurants; it's near downtown with all its entertainment options and shopping; and it it is a short distance to many golf courses.

What makes this apartment unique

Being in the remodeling business, we found this home to be ideal for upgrades. The contemporary look we added to the inside is surprising compared to the old Florida feeling of the design. The park across the street is City-run and has free tennis courts, basket ball courts, swimming , walking trails, and a free-weights gym if one gets the urge to pump iron.

Sublime

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic stay in this charming cottage. My husband and I planned a quick warm weather 5 day escape in a hotel, but decided to try a rental for the first time. WOW what a pleasant experience. The owners are very accommodating but unobtrusive, stocking the apartment with everything you might need. Kit and John even met us with a basket of goodies. The apartment was spotless and stylishly decorated. It looked brand new. The bed was plush and comfortable. The neighborhood was quiet. A couple of nights into our stay, the other side of the duplex got rented and we never heard a peep. There is also a lovely backyard barbecue and outdoor seating for those nights at home. But with so many fun restaurants to choose from on the Keys, nearby mid and downtown, we only stayed in one night. And oh those beaches, what can I say. Maybe we just got lucky with perfect weather but Siesta Key Beach was magnificent. I even tried yoga on the beach 3 mornings. It was heavenly. We're already planning our next visit and thinking of bringing our friends to stay on the other side of this great duplex. We could definitely recommend this rental as a restful retreat away from the crowds but close to everything Sarasota has to offer.

Better than Home!

  • 5 of 5
This was beyond my expectations! I have stayed at VBRO rentals before, and I thought I knew what to expect! But Kit and John, have gone above and beyond to make sure this place is the Perfect Get Away! It is beautiful, comfortable, and fabulously equipped ! There is not one thing that the owners have not thought of! You will not be running to the store, or rethinking any meal, it has it all! All of the appliances were nice, and new, and all of the utensils were new, it really was like a home away from home! They have a great little back patio area for grilling, ( and you will use it if the weather is nice, it was clean!!) The beach chairs were awesome and we used them! I could not believe this was a rental, it really left like we were staying in someone's well equipped home! It was a great location, stores, beach, and pool! We were there for 5 nights, and it was the best VBRO choice I have ever made! Nice people. Nice Location, and Nice Rental!
You cannot go wrong, with this one, spotless, cozy, and truly a gem!

You MUST stay here!

  • 5 of 5
I'm sure I will just echo what everyone else said, but it bears repeating how incredibly nice the owners are. The home is immaculate, convenient, quiet neighborhood. The house is completely cute and well equipped if you have a long stay. I never felt the cooties of all who stayed there before me, it felt like MY home. We will absolutely stay here next time we come to town.

nice place

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed at John & Kit's place for 4 nights and found it better than advertised. The apt is stocked with everything you could possibly need. It was very clean and modern. best of all it is centrally located with easy access to both the beaches and interstate. We would stay there again.

Charming neighborhood, safe and walkable

  • 5 of 5
I spent most of March in this cute little duplex. Kit and John have gone to great lengths to bring this property up to date and very comfortably furnished. Both were very responsive to any issues that needed to be addressed. I particularly enjoyed the queen bed and pillows -- and I'm pretty picky about both. I roamed the whole area on foot nearly every day, including a 45-minute walk downtown several times. Closer amenities are only a 10-minute walk, including good restaurants, a high-end market and coffee shops. Siesta Key is an easy 15 minute drive. I had two guests at different times who used the pull-out bed. Didn't hear any complaints. A very quiet and safe neighborhood. I would definitely return if the opportunity arises.
