Sarasota Apartment Rental Photos and Description
Apartment, Studio, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2)
The Squirrel's Nest is an adorable, affordable studio apartment in the heart of Downtown Sarasota. Located in Historic Gillespie Park, one of the oldest neighborhoods in Sarasota with its 1925 era cottages painted green, purple, yellow and even bright tangerine orange, this studio will make you feel like you have stepped back in time.
Furnished in eclectic antiques and hand painted country pieces, you will love this little apartment. The kitchen features a small refrigerator and microwave for light cooking. You can walk to the Whole Foods Market and purchase anything your heart desires from the salad and hot bars, or the prepared food counters.
A deck looking out to a serene back yard, under a 100 year old giant oak tree, allows you to sun bathe in peace.
The squirrel's nest is just a few short blocks from excellent restaurants, theatres, opera, cafes, antique stores, the Sarasota Bay front and lots of other wonderful things.
Saturdays feature the local farmer's market and regular parades, festivals and art fairs entertain residents year round. Bring your bike and ride over the Ringling Bridge all the way out to St. Armand's Circle and the beautiful white sand beaches of Lido Key.

The Seagers also own and manage 20 annual rental homes and apartments in Gillespie Park. Strong believers in Historic Preservation, the Seagers have been active in Gillespie Park's revitalization.
We live here in Gillespie Park and are passionate about this neighborhood. We love to walk our vizsla, Lucy through the park and into Downtown Sarasota. We often ride our bikes out to the beach with friends. We love sharing our beautiful neighborhood with visitors!
