Totally refurbished from a new roof right down to beautiful tile floors, new bathrooms, and a custom built kitchen we are very proud to offer our second home to our many returning guests. Decorated in the same beach cottage style as our first home with local eclectic furnishings and art, we know families will feel as at home as we do!
The master bedroom has a 'Sealy Posturepedic' King bed and en suite shower room. The second bedroom has Sealy twin beds and the third has a gorgeous Swedish style day bed with trundle pull-out. All the bedrooms have masses of storage. The family bathroom has a shower tub.
The living area is light and spacious, open plan from the front door, with morning sun, to the 'Florida Room' which enjoys the westerly evening sun.
A white custom built wooden kitchen with all new appliances and granite counters opens onto the dining area which links the two living areas and creates an ideal space for a big family or a couple to relax.
The Florida Room leads out to the enclosed Lanai and pool which enjoys all day sun and, due to a long westerly outlook at the back of the home, the evening rays will light your barbecue.
There is a door from the kitchen to the washer and dryer in the garage, this in turn leads to the sunny, fully fenced garden at the side of the property. Flat screen TVs in the lounge and master bedroom bring you the many channels expected in the US. There is a TV in the twin bedroom too. High speed broadband WIFI and phone, free for local calls is part of our package. There is parking for several cars.
Our neighbourhood is a quiet residential one, off the tourist track, close to the local Amish quarter with its fresh produce market and home made ice cream parlour. The YMCA is a short walk away with gym and indoor pool facilities. Shops and restaurants are just minutes away on the Tamiami Trail. The award winning beaches of Siesta Key are a 10 minute drive. Our rates are quoted in US $ and include taxes, electric pool heat, cable and WiFi..

Well Appointed in a Great Location
Thanks to the welcome package, we had a fun time touring the Sarasota area beaches, points of interest and great shopping. The fabulous Siesta Village and beach were a favourite with Lido Beach a close second but the best part was returning to the Sunny Bungalow ending our days 'back home'. The place was spotlessly clean with everything one would need for a home away from home experience. The pool was a welcomed addition to the amenities the bungalow offered. We had a great trip and would return in a heartbeat. Love love love Sunny Bungalow.
Dayle thank you for your lovely review, we are so happy that your trip was a success and look forward to welcoming you back one day, Susan and Annalise
Thoroughly enjoyable experience
We have been vacationing in Sarasota for over 30 years and this is by far the best we have ever experienced. The property is very clean, lovely, quiet and is exactly as advertised. Susan was very gracious and helpful guiding us through the rental process , and Annalise was a wonderful host who greeted us and cheerfully tended to our every need.
we enjoyed the lanai and heated pool immensely and are counting the days until our return visit.
John & Shirley
Thank you John and Shirley for this wonderful review and your confirmed booking for next year, truly the best accolade we can receive. Annalise and her team worked extremely hard on the re-model at the end of 2017 and your appreciation is so rewarding. I hope your return to Poughkeepsie is not as chilly as the weekend we've just endured in England. See you in 2019.
Very clean, great location, well presented
The villa was situated in a perfect location with access to all areas of Sarasota. The place was extremely clean when we arrived and welcome notes were very informative and detailed. Overall I would rent this villa again for future visits.
Many thanks for your feedback, as Hurricane Irma approaches we are just praying for our beautiful city and all its homes and people, your positive words today are uplifting.
Perfect family home and great location
The house was exactly what we were looking for! It met all our expectations. It accommodated our party of four adults and one teen. Beds were comfortable and the pool was enjoyed every day. Having a third tv in the bedroom with the two twin beds was a pleasant surprise. The kitchen was well supplied and everything was very cleaned. Having a washer and dryer to use meant that we didn't have to bring as many clothes and we were able to do a few loads before we left. The neighborhood was nice and conveniently located for us. The small room (not mentioned) before you went out to the pool was a nice seating area great for reading. We found we needed an additional chair in the LR so we brought a chair from this area out and problem solved! Our contact nearby replied very quickly to our questions. Very satisfied and hope to return some day!
Thank you Sherry, we are so happy the trip was such a success and would be delighted should you return one day, Susan and Annalise
Lovely, Well Maintained Home in a Quiet Location
Enjoyed a short 4 night stay in Susan's bungalow, which is extremely well maintained, clean and very beautifully furnished. The property is exactly as described in the listing.
The property is well located with plenty of shops and restaurants close by, with a short drive to Siesta Key.
The pool area is wonderful and totally secluded.
It is very easy to communicate with Susan, the owner and re-assuring that her daughter, Annalise, is nearby should there be any problems. A great set-up.
I would certainly recommend this property.
Home from home - but better!
Our family of 4 stayed here for 10 days in August and I can thoroughly recommend it; in fact it's probably the best property we've ever rented. The bungalow is very spacious with a huge open plan living area, kitchen and then on into a 2nd small living area which opens up onto the pool area. There is a double bedroom with an enormous bed and en-suite, a twin room, a 3rd room with a day bed which opens up to make a double, plus a family bathroom. The property is spotlessly clean, well maintained and furnished tastefully and to a very high standard throughout which made our stay very comfortable. The kitchen, unlike many properties we've rented, actually has enough good quality pots, pans and dishes to make it possible to cook a full meal, and the dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer all made for easy living. The pool area is covered in a mesh cage which kept mosquitos and other nasties out, and meant we could sit outside in the evening enjoying the beautiful sunsets without being eaten alive. I would definitely recommend this property
Thank you Nichola for your review and we are so pleased you enjoyed our bungalow, our aim is to have guests feel so at home they can imagine this is their own beach house. We hope you will return one day, Susan and Annalise.
Only 10-15 minutes from the fine white sands of the Gulf of Mexico and our award winning beach,. Moments from the many fabulous restaurants of the Tamiami Trail. A 10 minute drive will take you to the boutique shopping at St. Armands Key with its fine dining and Lido beach, drive across to Longboat Key and Anna Maria Island for a true Florida Keys experience. The famous Ringling Museum and Mansion, the art galleries of Palm Avenue, the Van Wezel concert hall, orchestra and ballet, the stylish new Selby public library and the many beautiful examples of Spanish architecture dating back to the 1920's all remind us that Sarasota truly is the cultural capital of Florida. However bargain hunters and fashionistas are not forgotten with excellent shopping malls within 10 minutes drive and a huge designer discount mall at Ellenton, 30 minutes away. Wildlife enthusiasts will enjoy Jungle Gardens, or a trip to the Myakka River to see the alligators
