I grew up in St. Louis Mo. and vacationed in Sarasota with my family. My Mom and Dad purchased this great home, and now it belongs to me. I live right around the corner from Hirsch's landing, so I can easily attend to the home and my guests. I live in Sarasota on Lido Key, and I work as a professional actress at the Asolo Repertory Theatre.

location, location, location!

Wild Manatees are frequent visitors to the new beautiful dock on this lovely canal.

I booked this house just on reviews., shame on me. Upon arriving I asked Donna if we could go in to write checks and she says you don't go in until I get the money. the house is in a ok spot, there are better and it's much farther to the beach than a few steps. all the towels smelled so bad we had to wash them before using them. All the dishes were dirty and what pans there were had dried crusties on them and wee peeling. Carolyn tells me it was fortunate that I had a place close by to pick up pans and beach chairs..I called it an inconvience, how about people who don't have a place? dishwasher did not work, it ran but didn't clean. we killed 2 roaches in the kitchen and there were ants in the bathroom..the bug guy came and sprayed raid.
the landscape is deteriorating and pretty non existent, dead and dried up. the pool is EXTREMELY small, there is 1 lounge chair and the rest is really cheap plastic stuff..1 lounge chair so you couldn't lay by the pool if you wanted to or had to take turns. there is a large area of rocks and bent and broken beams...don't know what that served. the house had to be for small people since there is a table with chairs that are almost on the floor...good for kids I guess. you have to stoop down in the shower to get under the shower head. the vanities are very low for normal people. the contraption that held the toilet paper was dirty! the beach is quite a hawl when you are carrying stuff. the decor is terrible. The furniture in the LR is broken and when you sit on in you sink in. I do have something good to say...the bed in the master BR was comfortable.
when I go away I expect to be in a real nice place that is clean and nicely hdecorated...this is not the place. There are other nice places a couple blocks away for 1/2 the price. There are a lot of nice places in the area that I cannot mention here. I still haven't figured out what the high cleaning fee was for since we had to clean everything we used. I tried to find another place to stay and get some of my money back but the places I wanted to be we're booked. Carolyn says that I was difficult from the start and I don't know how, I just asked her to waive the tax like another home owner was going to do for me. screens on patio doors were ripped, we taped them. Beach chairs are extremely small and the 2 bigger ones were broken and all the chairs were totally rusted. I had to go to my condo and get my chairs and buy 2 more for our guests! renters beware
Owner's Response: I was disappointed that his renter was unhappy with Hirsch's landing. The decor is exactly as it is represented in the photos...retro 60's...and if that is not to her taste, she perhaps should have chosen a different place to rent. my other renters LOVE it...and find it charming and fun, and they always compliment me as to how CLEAN the house always is, and they come back, time after time. I have many return renters. The towels are plentiful for both the baths and the beach and are always washed and are very clean I thank her for calling my attention to the aging pans, and I have since replaced them with new pots and pans. The pool is advertised as a small pool. The master bath has marble countertops, and quite lovely, with his and hers dressing room areas. The beach is indeed a few steps away...just across a the private road, easily accessible...and the house itself is beautifully situated on a canal and has a gorgeous dock. I was away so I was, unfortunately, unable to meet this renter. The house is treated (Florida being Florida) on a monthly basis by Orkin, who also respond if there happens to be a specific issue. There is a yard service and a pool service that comes every Friday. The furniture in the LR is NOT broken. In fact, I keep it in very good condition. The whole house had just been cleaned by Stanley Steemer, furniture included, before her arrival. The dishwasher is less than a year old and should work well. No one else has complained about it. If something does break, I like to get it fixed immediately, so I encourage renters to let me know if there is a problem.

Fortunately, my other renters are very pleased with "hirsch's Landing" and have said as much in their reviews. It is a comfortable and fun vacation home that can sleep 6 easily...3 bedrooms , 2 baths...a living room, a family room, multiple TV's with cable, wi-fi, fully equipped kitchen...steps from St. Armand's Circle with its shops and restaurants and ice cream parlors....and a very short stroll to Lido beach...and on the water! There are water views from almost every room in the house. Visiting Manatees and a mango tree are bonus attractions along with a large back yard and patio. Come have fun!

Perfect Getaway

We spent 1 glorious week here and I wish it had been longer. My husband and I, with our 2 daughters (ages 18 & 21) have travelled to Florida many times in the past. Last year we stayed in Siesta Key and on our last day of vacation discovered Lido Key and St. Armand's Circle. We loved it and decided we would return and plan a vacation in the area. Carolyn's family home was the perfect choice. As other reviewers have mentioned, the house is much bigger than it looks in the photos. It is perfect for a family, with big spacious rooms, very clean and bright and a fully equipped kitchen. My favourite, unexpected surprise was that the master bathroom actually had his and her sides, so my husband and I weren't tripping over each other. The backyard was lovely, with an inground pool and beautiful view of the canal. We looked for the manatees everyday and weren't disappointed, as they loved to come up for a drink from the hose. The house is in an ideal location, minutes to the beach and a short walk to St. Armand's Circle. I am a runner and enjoyed running on the multi-use path that goes along the beach area. I would highly recommend this rental home and we hope to make a return visit in the future.

We had a wonderful time staying in Carolyn's family home! It was clean, had everything we needed, and spacious! We loved the retro decor! It is a very short and easy walk to the beach which is not busy..almost felt private at times. The pool was great for relaxing and keeping cool in the wonderful Florida sun (and heat)! The home is situated just outside St. Armand's Circle where you can shop and/or eat at various places. Carolyn was very helpful with ideas of things to do if you wanted to be out of the sun for awhile. She was also available throughout our stay if we needed her. The best part for my kids (honestly for me too) was getting to see the manatees that came RIGHT up to the dock daily! A beautiful and breathtaking experience. It was hard to leave such an awesome experience and home. My son (5 years old), just said yesterday, "I want to live in that home we stayed at in Florida." We would go back tomorrow if we could! Thanks Carolyn for such beautiful memories and making us feel like we were at home!

Perfection in Paradise

We were fortunate to enjoy a month in this wonderful house in June - we would liked to have stayed for longer, much longer !
For position alone, Hirsch's Landing just cannot be beaten - being only a 2 minute walk from the beautiful Lido Beach in one direction and, equally, 2 minutes from the shop's & restaurant's of St. Armands Circle in the other - we have been taking vacations in Sarasota for 15 years, the location really could not be any better, it is quite simply the best !
The house itself is both comfortable and homely, there is everything you could possibly need - including an 'avalanche' of beach towels - to make your vacation a perfect one.
The pool at the back is big enough for early morning dips, and that late evening plunge. The dock, which sits over the sea canal at the rear, is perfect for fishing and great for watching the Manatee, who seems to visit almost daily - use the hose to spray fresh water in their mouths, or over their back, they love it - and it will provide you with one of those really special moments to treasure. Take a Gin & Tonic, or Cocktail, on the bench at the end of the dock, and sit watch the sunset at the close of another perfect day in paradise - just wonderful.
The house is much bigger than it looks in the images, it will comfortably sleep 6 adults. We had our 20 year old son with us, and our 4 year old daughter, Hirsch's Landing provided everything in terms of facilities & location to ensure everyone had a great Vacation.
We will certainly return - sadly, it just won't come soon enough !

Thank you Carolyn

Fabulous vacation - fabulous rental

We had the great pleasure of finding this great find and enjoying 10 wonderful days on Lido Key. The house was perfectly located - we could access it easily from the beach which is a must when you have young children. The pool in the backyard made it the perfect end of day activity for the kids and the parents! Located right off St-Armands circle, I was able to run 4 to 7 miles every day and then walk into Starbucks for my daily latte. When we did not feel like cooking, we could simply walk over to the several restaurants accessible at our finger tips for either a fabulous dinner out or simply bringing dinner home. Love take out - especially from Tommy Bahamas. Lastly, the house is extremely clean and well kept. If you are like me and translated the German review - you probably wonder about the house - please rest assured, I am a fussy renter and this was the perfect house in the most perfect location.
Thanks Carolyn for a great time and we look forward to our stay next year.
Best,
Catherine
