BEAUTIFUL TRANQUIL POOL HOME NEAR AMERICA'S NO 1 BEACH

Sarasota House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sleeps 8 plus infants

Our stylish 2,200 sq.ft. home has been exquisitely decorated in an elegant tropical style, an eclectic mix of shabby chic and vintage pieces. It sits high on a large lot in a private road of only 6 homes close to Phillippi Creek with all its wonderful birds and wildlife. Drive or cycle to Siesta Key beaches, just named America's No 1 Beach, (10 minutes by car) or visit Southgate Mall,many designer names as well as all America's favourite brands. The many varied restaurants of Tamiami Trail are equally close by, many offering take out service. Or simply relax in your own tropical paradise, sparkling heated saltwater pool (no chlorine, kinder to eyes and skin), fully screened in with al fresco eating, large gas grill for the excellent local seafood, and a spacious screened lanai! (No bugs or other unwelcome visitors!)The pool is not overlooked and the whole yard is surrounded by lush tropical landscaping.

Our fabulous beach: http://www.cnn.com/2011/TRAVEL/05/27/best.beaches

In May Siesta Beach was named America's Best Beach and confirmed what we have known for years, that the fine white quartz crystal sand has healing powers and is home to many nesting birds and sea turtles. The aquamarine ocean is warm by May/June and remains so until November. A regular morning walk on this stunning beach or a sunset shared with a friend or lover is a magical experience, never to be forgotten. The public beach has full facilities and is busy and popular, we prefer the north end of the key where the beach is tranquil and you can spend hours with a book and hardly see a soul.

Bedrooms: All our bedrooms have fine linens and comfortable beds, the bathrooms are all white with tile floors and all new fittings in 2005. We have cupboards full of towels and sheets, duvets for the winter, sufficient extra bedding for 8 to sleep in comfort. The sofa bed in the family room is new (2011) and means we can now sleep 8 adults plus infants.

We have a cot and high chair.

Kitchen and dining: When we stay in the house we entertain our many local friends and family and can easily feed 12 on a regular basis, we have lots of pots and pans and crockery/cutlery! Unlike an average rental this is our family retreat and with 6 children it has to be on a large scale! You can park 5 or 6 cars on the drive and most guests agree there is little need or desire to go anywhere once you settle around the pool. Our only problem is we get too relaxed here and never make all the trips we intended!

A real find

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 6, 2014
  • Stayed: Dec 2013
We spent ten lovely days here as an adult family group. The house completely fulfilled our expectations. It's light, spacious, comfortable and very attractively furnished and decorated. In a quiet, pretty, tree-lined neighbourhood, it's only minutes from the beautiful beaches of Siesta Key and the restaurants and shops on Tamiami Trail. It was a great to have Annalise, the owner's daughter, next door, as she was always ready with help and advice when we needed it. It was lovely to go out for the day and return to the house to relax by the pool and have a barbecue.

There's so much to do in and around Sarasota - highlights for us were the beaches, swimming with manatees in Crystal River, the fascinating Ringling house and gardens and and nearby Myakka State Park. We would love to return and discover more and would definitely recommend this property to family and friends.
Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words Dorothy, I know Annalise really enjoyed meeting you and your family and we do hope you will return one day. I hope you are keeping safe, dry and warm and that your memories of the Sarasota sunshine will help you endure this dreadful January weather!

Excellent Value

Spent 2 weeks in this house and enjoyed it thoroughly. It was exactly as listed and very well maintained and clean. The pool was excellent.
it was located close enough to everything including several excellent golf courses, restaurants and Fiesta Key beach. The neighborhood was very peaceful.
A few small glitches were seen to immediately and without fuss.
I would recommend this property to friends and would not hesitate to return there.
Owner's Response: Thank you Michael, we value your review highly as you also welcome guests to your home in Ireland. You were great guests yourselves and we do hope you will come back one day. We'll certainly know where to stay should we visit Dublin.

Dream holidays

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 7, 2013
  • Stayed: May 2013
We arrived with our 3 children (15 - 6 - 6) without luggage and one missing passport beacause of losing time during connecting flight in Newark.
The first impression was great- an all the others too, so we soon forgot our problems - the luggage arrived one day later by the airline.
Because of the missing passport we had to go to the German embassy in Miami - this was a beautiful trip, especially Ocean Drive was amazing.
The house was wonderful ! Nice and lovely arranged rooms, they were all large enough. A lot of bathrooms, a pretty nice pool - our children didn't want to get out. The kitchen was fully equiped, nothing missed.
The neigbourhood also was nice, especially there were no other tourists -so it was just like living there.
Only a few minutes to the beaches and the malls - only half an hour to a very big outlet.
Sarasota is the ideal place to visit Florida, because you can do daily travels to nearly every place - it is also not to far to Orlando, wich is mandatory if you have children. But the better and als nearer place is Bush Gardens.
So the two weeks were our dream holidays and we hope to return some day
Owner's Response: Thank you for your review Thomas and we certainly hope you will return one day, may those happy summer memories help you through a chilly German winter.

Wonderful house in quiet location. Pool and Garden secluded and private.
We had a great time here and enjoyed every minute. few minor issues with cleaning when we arrived.
More issues with deposit when leaving so watch for hidden charges that are not stated openly. Shame about this.
owners very pleasant and friendly.

Owner's Response: Bill, we are sorry you were surprised by the deduction for cleaning and damage. You asked us to "take the cleaning charge from the security deposit" in an email dated May 28 and, while the hole in the bedroom wall was an accident and you did apologise, that is what the refundable security deposit is for, so to describe these as hidden charges is rather misleading. Happily we were able to keep the repair under $100 by doing it ourselves. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and what is a holiday if not a time to relax and let others clear up after you?

Only 10 minutes from the fine white sands of the Gulf of Mexico and our award winning beach, http://www.cnn.com/2011/TRAVEL/05/27/best.beaches. Moments from the many fabulous restaurants of the Tamiami Trail. A 20 minute drive will take you to the boutique shopping at St. Armands Key with its fine dining and Lido beach, drive across to Longboat Key and Anna Maria Island for a true Florida Keys experience. The famous Ringling Museum and Mansion, the art galleries of Palm Avenue, the Van Wezel concert hall, orchestra and ballet, the stylish new Selby public library and the many beautiful examples of Spanish architecture dating back to the 1920's all remind us that Sarasota truly is the cultural capital of Florida. However bargain hunters and fashionistas are not forgotten with excellent shopping malls within 10 minutes drive and a huge designer discount mall at Ellenton, 30 minutes away. Wildlife enthusiasts will enjoy Jungle Gardens, or a trip to the Myakka River to see the alligators
