From the moment you arrive you will know that you have chosen the perfect house for your Sarasota vacation. Lush tropical plantings line the curved walk up to the front door and upon entering you will immediately be impressed with the roomy open-concept floor plan. Comfort and quality are key in this beautifully furnished mid-century modern Florida ranch. Large sliding glass doors along the living room and dining room walls open to a beautiful crystal clear swimming pool and a large grassy lawn that slopes down to the dock on the Phillippi creek. The Master bedroom with its tranquil colors and extremely comfortable bed boasts a fully tile bathroom en-suite with large walk-in shower. The second bedroom is bright, airy and Scandinavian in feel with its two comfortable new twin-size beds. It sits next to a second bathroom with tub. The den/third bedroom can be closed off with its french doors and has a brand new leather sofa bed where you can curl up to watch your favorite film or one of the scores of high-definition channels offered. The dining room has seating for eight around the glass and rattan table. In the living room a comfortable and cushy sofa along with several chairs surround a sea-grass area rug over original high-polished terrazzo floors. A stone fireplace adds to the ambiance. Chefs will appreciate the quality cookware, Cuisinart food processor and Kitchen-Aid mixer while preparing a delicious meal. Dine inside or out on the patio beneath the trees while the Florida sun sets to the west. Enjoy cocktails or a cup of coffee under the lanai while Snowy Egrets and Herons flock along the creek and wait for the resident bald eagle and great horned owl that frequent the area. On the far side of the pool area the four hole putting green is the perfect diversion for children and a great practice area for avid golfers. Of course there's a supply of clubs and balls. The laundry room with clothes-folding area houses a tiled shower lav. and sink for quick washes after an afternoon at the beach or after a kayak adventure through the mangrove trees along the creek.
Cool and serene, tasteful and tranquil, you will never forget your stay.

We are former sailors working in the charter yacht world. Now we raise natural products on our Catskill Mountain farm and vacation in beautiful sarasota.
Sarasota was the obvious location for us because of its spectacular beaches, natural environment, cultural richness, wonderful people and laid-back lifestyle.
We enjoy all of the cultural opportunities the area has to offer. Our house is just minutes from everything yet is private and tranquil.
