This is the house I grew up in. My father passed away at 99 several years ago and I decided to fix up the house and rent it seasonally. We have had such good fortune finding quality tenants in the past and hope to continue to do so in the future.
You can't beat this beautiful view onto the Phillippi Creek Cove. The house is located in a great little neighborhood only minutes from world famous Siesta Key Beach and minutes away from downtown Sarasota.
Quiet neighborhood, close to beaches, shopping, downtown, museums, theaters, etc.
