About Sarasota, Arts & Culture....

There's no need to stay on the beach to enjoy all that Sarasota has to offer. After all, no matter where you stay the beaches are only minutes away. The mainland is home to many of the attractions and activities that add depth and character to Sarasota vacations.

Off the islands, Sarasota is defined by a rich and varied arts scene that belies the size of the city. There's the famous John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art, featuring an enormous selection of paintings -- including one of the biggest collections of Rubens in the world. There's the vibrant gallery scene showcasing Sarasota's talented local artists, as well as visiting collections from artists around the world. And we haven't even started on live performances.

Opera in the historic Sarasota Opera House. The Sarasota Ballet and Sarasota Orchestra. National touring shows in the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall. And three different theater companies all within a mile of each other.

Enjoying the outdoors....

Of course Beaches ! Siesta Key - #1 beach in the US, Lido Key. Longboat Key.

Sarasota's natural beauty has made it an international golf destination, with dozens of courses in the area designed by some of the biggest names in the sport.

Bike along the many trails in the area. Play Tennis. Take in a day, dinner or sunset boat cruise from Sarasota's bayfront.

Kayak around the mangroves. Look for Manatees, Dolphins, Pelicans and all of the bird life that call it home here.

Fish.

Turtle watch nesting.

If you'd rather be a spectator than a participant, head to Ed Smith Stadium, the spring training headquarters of the Baltimore Orioles and home to a minor league franchise.

.

Sarasota has some of the most extensive public park lands in the state, including the incomparable Myakka State.

Festivals and Events....

Sarasota Film Festival in April, Chalk festival in the fall. Thunder on the Bay, Art & Craft shows, Food and Wine events. Suncoast Super Boat Grand Prix, Jazz and Blues festivals. Siesta Key Sandcastle Sculping Competion.

Great short-term stay!

  • 5 of 5

My father, children and I stayed at Maureen and Patrick's beautiful vacation rental for two nights. Everything we needed was provided and the hosts were completely accommodating. It is hard to find a house rental for less than five days in the Sarasota area. I was thrilled to be able to find such a great home with a beautiful yard. I highly recommend this home!

How Nice!

  • 5 of 5

As soon as I walked in the door, I felt at home. Spent a thoroughly enjoyable six days here with hubby exploring the Sarasota area. Our comfort, convenience, and enjoyment were enhanced by this quiet VRBO into which the efficient, friendly owners have appointed with details and decor that make it home like, inside and out. I couldn't agree more with all the other positive reviews. (We even needed to turn on the heat, and it worked fine.) Loved those recliners in the living room! What a nice place. Kuddos to the owners who take pride in making this place so nice. Thank you!

Enjoying the Sarasota area

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for 2 weeks. Everything was absolutely perfect. Maureen and Patrick provide virtually anything you can think of or need to make the stay enjoyable. The residential neighbor hood is low key and comfortable. The location provides very easy access to Sarasota downtown, beaches, interstate, restaurants... ideal for exploring and experiencing the variety available in the area.

exploring Sarasota's restaurants, beaches, and neighborhoods

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a great time at Maureen and Patrick's rental home for a week. The description of the location and the property were highly accurate as were the photos which illustrated the rental's appearance and amenities. Maureen was very kind and thoughtful in greeting us and showing us around the beautiful gardens and sitting areas in the backyard. She even pointed out an owl sitting quietly in a palm tree outside the master bedroom. The property was exceptionally clean and well maintained. We utilized the kitchen area for breakfast and lunch and had dinner at a number of excellent restaurants in Sarasota suggested by Maureen. Everything that we needed was present in the kitchen including a blender. We also utilized a number of appliances in the kitchen and the laundry area, and each of them worked flawlessly. When my wife had some difficulty getting a yoga CD to play on the TV, Patrick kindly came over a showed her what needed to be done. Both Maureen and Patrick are very friendly and approachable individuals who answered each of our questions thoroughly and guided us to the nearby Publix grocery store and other shopping areas as well as interesting places such as Burns Court and other quaint neighborhoods. The owners even provided maps that were excellent guides for us in navigating many areas of Sarasota. I would highly recommend this property to a friend or relative without reservation, and we hope to return soon.

All the comforts of home....

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 wonderful weeks at Patrick & Maureen's lovely bungalow. Having stayed at over a dozen properties secured through various vacation rental websites over the years, this was by far the best one ever. The owners have obviously spent a lot of time and effort to make it as comfortable and inviting for guests of all ages and interests. From the selection of children's toys, beach gear and towels, outdoor grill, WiFi, HD TV & DVD player, tourist information binders, etc., the owners have provided all the amenities necessary to make your stay a pleasant one. We felt so comfortable and at home that we (including our 2 young kids ages 5 and 7) didn't want to leave!! We can't wait to visit again next year!
