Overview

Sarasota Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

*** Newly remodeled historic property in the heart of Laurel Park, SARASOTA'S ONLY TRUE WALK-TO-DOWNTOWN NEIGHBORHOOD ***

Three Palms Bungalow (named for the three 75 foot Washingtonia palms in front) is an immaculately restored and updated 1925 wood bungalow in Laurel Park, one of Sarasota's oldest, most charming, and best located residential neighborhoods.

Step out the front door and you can WALK...not drive...in less than 10 minutes to ALL of the following: Downtown Main Street, Sarasota Bayfront Park and Marina Jacks (with available kayak, paddleboat, aqua cycle, sailboat, powerboat, and waverunner rentals), Burns Court Historic District (only 1 block away), dozens of restaurants, the Saturday downtown farmer's market, shopping, art galleries, spas and salons, the symphony, the opera, the downtown public library, the 12 court Payne Park tennis center, two movie theaters, Selby Botanical Gardens, Towles Court art district, Whole Foods Market, Starbucks, and much more. A little farther away, but still reachable by bike or a 10 minute drive are the shops and restaurants of St. Armand's Circle (3 miles) and the white quartz sands and clear blue waters of Lido Beach (3.5 miles) and Siesta Key Beach (7 miles). ***Note that Siesta Key was voted the #1 beach in the entire USA in 2011. It is only a 10-15 minute drive away and the parking is free!

The house retains all of its 1925 charm, but with many of today's modern amenities. It is a 982 square foot two bedroom/one bath wood bungalow, with 15 foot vaulted ceiling in the large living room. The kitchen has brand new Caesarstone countertops, all new appliances, a two seat countertop breakfast bar, and round four seat dining table surrounded by large sun filled windows. The all new spa inspired bathroom features subway tiled floors and walls and an all glass walk-in shower. Both bedrooms have queen size beds with new plush mattresses, nightstands, and reading chairs. The master bedroom includes french doors that open up to the private fenced in back yard with new 350 square foot brick paver patio. Other amenities include large screen HDTV with DVR and DVD player, wireless high speed internet, full size washer and dryer, and gas grill.

Great experience...we hope to buy in the area

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific experience at Three Palms Bungalow. The house is darling...furnished both attractively and thoughtfully. Everything we needed was close at hand and we were comfortable throughout the visit both when we were at work (sadly we had to do some during our vacation; BTW the house has good Internet and cable connections) and when we were relaxing. We especially enjoyed sitting the private yard and enjoying a glass of wine before walking to one of the many great restaurants nearby. I didn't realize how fortunate I was in choosing this property when I booked because I didn't know the area that well prior to our stay. It's has great access to everything from Selby Botanic gardens to Marina Jack's and all the best downtown restaurants! Love, love, love the location.

The owners were extremely responsive throughout our booking and usage. They always responded quickly to all inquiries and offered tips about things to do once we arrived, both through lists available in the house and emails about current events.

It was an excellent experience all around. I highly recommend the Three Palms Bungalow. It's perfect for a couple or maybe a couple and one child.

Ten Days in Blue Bungalow Joy, with Three Palm Trees Added !

  • 5 of 5

If you are reading this review, I assume you have seen pictures of the Inside and Outside of this Blue Gem Home away from home. I attest to, " what you see, Is what you get ".

All TRUE.

What you don't see is the remarkable detail to make you think, " How Did They Think Of Everything ". From a kitchen stocked with every conceivable utensil, enough pots, dishes for any occasion.

Open a closet, and find what ever you want, or wished you had, in your own house.

In one, are three big book binders. One with ALL the appliance manuals. The other with

with information you never knew to ask.

I said enough.

Charming bungalow in a great location!

  • 4 of 5

Three Palms was a very comfortable, fully equipped home in a great location. We were able to walk to the waterfront, downtown, artists alley and the botanical gardens. The bungalow was newly renovated and very clean. The decor was eclectic and in keeping with the period. It is located in Laurel Park, a charming downtown area of Sarasota. There's a great restaurant at the end of the street, some nice shops close by along with some fun antique stores. We chose Three Palms for it's location and it was perfect! If it had a plunge pool we'd give Three Palms 5 stars!

Perfect location, adorable cottage

  • 5 of 5

One could not want a nicer spot in Sarasota than Three Palms Bungalow for enjoying all the downtown has to offer. We walked everywhere (opera, Van Wesel, restaurants, YMCA, groceries, library) and only used our car for baseball, beach and Ringling. The cottage is beautiful with a wonderful back yard. We particularly enjoyed the keyless entry! The owners were very accommodating and made many excellent suggestions for restaurants and activities. Thanks, Lisa and Jonathon, for two grand weeks in town!

This was my childhood home!

  • 5 of 5

I was bumping around on VRBO for our yearly summer trip to Sarasota - for me.. my home! When I came across the very house I grew up in! I lived in this bungalow, in a lot of it's original form.. not nicely renovated as it is today.... from 1981-1993. I drive by this house each visit with my kids, to see how it changes year to year. This was a real treat to find this on here and see my old room, my old home - changed into a real beauty!

Boy were we Lucky!

  • 5 of 5

A morning cancellation produced a weekly rental and we jumped on the chance to rent this attractively restored and well maintained little bungalow. Small, but spacious feeling, with cathedral ceilings in the living room and adjoining sitting area, this place was just what we needed after the cold weather in the North East. The well equipped eat-in kitchen offered every cooking and serving item you could need and even a few spices for cooking convenience. The terrace in the back provided the perfect spot to enjoy early morning coffee or evening cocktails. The location couldn't be better...several restaurants, a local farmers market downtown and many quaint shops are all within easy walking distance. The Three Palms was just perfect as a home away from home!
