This was my first time renting from Jean. All my emails with questions were answered quickly and after reading the stellar reviews I decided to rent this for the month of July.
Upon entering I noticed how CLEAN everything was. The kitchen was stocked with the essentials too- coffee, dishsoap, paper towels, coffee, salt/ pepper, and did I mention coffee? Lol. The bathrooms all had tp and handsoap too. It was such a long day with my kids that when I arrived I was so relieved I didn't have to go back out to the store right away.
The other thing that I appreciated was how nice and quiet the neighborhood was. Except for Independence Day, we never heard any of the neighbors! My kids enjoyed the massive pool almost every day and we went to the shady park which was in the neighborhood. The other place we spent a lot of time was a the beach of course! Lido Beach was within 30 minutes as well as Siesta. The property is also close to the interstate and the new UTC Mall.
The local property manager Eddie was great too. He always responded quickly and was very friendly.
I was impressed with how comfortable the master bed was and the roomy bath. My kids loved their rooms on the other side of the house so we all had own space to relax. There were plenty of towels, sheets and blankets.
We had a great time here! I would highly recommend this house and hope to come back next summer for vacation.
Thank you Jean and Eddie for everything!
This was our third stay at this property and we plan to return again ... what more can we say! The property is well maintained and well located for anyone who likes to explore the area. The neighbourhood is safe and quiet, the owner and property manager are great to work with which helps make this a true home away from home experience. If you are fortunate enough to book time at this property you will not be disappointed.
My husband and I enjoyed our stay in this lovely home December 29th - January 30th. The home is very spacious, clean and comfortable. The neighborhood is quiet and we met many of the neighbors while walking our Sheltie. Everyone was welcoming and it was fun to have our little coffee/puppy play time club every morning.
The enormous HEATED pool was fantastic, even when the weather was a bit on the cool side. Eddie, the very dependable and friendly property manager, keeps the pool and home in tip top shape! We enjoyed a couple of relaxing bicycle rides around the neighborhood on what appear to be new bicycles. We took in Lido Beach and Siesta Key Beach (beautiful white sand) which are close by for a great day and the most spectacular sunsets ever!!
There are plenty of places to get groceries and also restaurants to dine out. The owner, Jean-Louis, gave some excellent recommendations of where to shop, dine and what to see and do.
Thank you, Jean-Louis, for sharing your home with us, and for being so courteous and pleasant to work with!. We enjoyed our stay so much, we are planning to move to the area in 2017!
My family stayed here for the month of July. The house is located in a VERY quiet neighborhood. A dog barking seemed like a lot of noise. The neighbors seemed like retirees. Very nice, well kept area. We loved it because it was quiet and serene (except for our kids splashing around the pool). It is a short distance to a Starbucks, Publix, restaurants- maybe 5 miles down the road. Further out there are MANY choices for shopping as the main boulevards that run in a grid through-out Sarasota have a lot of retail. The beach is about 15-20 minutes away (Siesta Key Beach). This beach is ranked as one of the nicest in the United States. When we where there it was being redone and it looked like it would be really nice when completed.
The house was much larger than it appears from photographs. It was very clean. The pool was the highlight and we were in it almost every day. There were a few bumps initially but Eddie was great and all things were resolved quickly. Eddie is the 'caretaker' of the property and is always available day or night. Very accommodating and friendly. He also maintains the pool once a week as well. There is a barbecue grill located on the back patio that was very convenient. We would shop at the local Amish market and then cook/grill for dinner. Not that there is a lack of restaurants as there are MANY eating establishments in the entire area.
Downtown Sarasota is also about 15-20 minutes north west. Very nice city that has a great walkway right along water's edge. Very relaxing and beautiful, especially at sunset!
We really enjoyed out time here and would definitely recommend the home to anyone. We have 2 kids and 2 dogs and it was great.
Jean-Louis Lonne, the home's owner is very gracious and decent. My interactions with him were professional, trust-worthy, and courteous. Thank you again for sharing your home with us!
We so enjoyed our 5 week stay from December 28th to January 31st. Everything pictured is exactly what you get. The neighborhood was very quiet and friendly. This house was our home away from home and we even began to call it home! Jean-Louis is a very easy gentleman to exchange e-mails with. He always responded in a timely manner. We especially appreciate the two bikes that he arranged for our use during our stay. The pool was wonderful! The weather was a little chilly for a few days but I still managed a morning and evening swim.
Eddy had arranged to have a few basic essentials ready for us when we arrived. (toilet paper, salt & pepper, body soap, dishwashing soap and cleaning sponges) Everything that we needed we had at the house. It was really amazing. Nothing had been forgotten! Eddy was also very responsive when we needed to get ahold of him.
This is the first time since retiring that we have rented a house and we were very impressed!
We (my wife and our two girls) spent a fantastic time in this home.
Everything was very clean well maintained.
The most impressive was the really big pool.
And whoever reads this we can judge this house very weel because we have been in many similar Florida houses in the past 12 years.
Jean-Louis gave us good advices and in the case of any problem there is Eddie who can help.
This home can be recommended even with the risk it will become even more hard to get.
Thank you both, Jean-Louis and Eddie.
Christian and family.
