Halfmoon South is Sarasota's ONLY true retro vacation rental!
Located in sunny Sarasota, Florida... only minutes from endless shopping, and Siesta Key's world renowned beaches on the Gulf of Mexico.
Go back to a better time! Relive the 50's and 60's at Halfmoon South, a truly unique vacation experience. The moment you enter Halfmoon South, you will be amazed at the attention to detail throughout. From the furniture and decorations to the cupboards full of authentic retro dinnerware and glassware, it IS a one of a kind getaway!
Halfmoon South is also close to so many things the wonderful city of Sarasota, Florida has to offer. A seemingly endless choice of restaurants, shopping, and activities await. Sarasota is known for its rich culture in the arts and the arts and crafts of many local artisans.
From Halfmoon South, it is an easy drive to Busch Gardens, Disney World, Sea World, and Universal Studios and all of the other Orlando and Kissimme attractions without being in the hustle and bustle of it all.

This is our family property which we lovingly remodeled after the purchase and made it a fun place in the sun!
Heather and Craig McCracken purchased this house in 2005
SOOOOOOO COOOOLL!! private pol allows for nude sunbathing and skinny dipping. They let us bring our dogs and told us about a bunch of great restaurants. This is not a 5 star resort by any means but it is absolutely amazing...just check out the photos on their site!
Unfortunately we had a very disappointing stay. Many things broke down or fell apart. Major issues with the hot water. All the memorabilia on the walls are cute but are dust collectors which don't get cleaned by the cleaning staff. The pool is beautiful but a lot of work due to the neighbors trees.
Our family gathered here this March, when the weather up North was wicked. We had a lovely week at Half Moon.....close to shopping, dining, Starbucks, and the best beach in the world, Siesta Key. It was especially lovely to soak in the hot tub in the evening. Everyone enjoyed their stay and would highly recommend this place.
I am not sure what to say here, I've never done a review before. The owners allow pets and our little chihuahua had a blast too. If you have not looked ather website...I think it is halfmoonsouth.com then that is the best review I can leave. It is not a luxury palace. It is however very comfortable and private and the 50's decor is simply amazing. Thanks for a great stay!
I work in the film industry and it felt like walking onto a set for a 60's period piece. I do set design and will actually make thisplace known to my colleagues if the need for such a location comes up. Just think Craig & Heather, your place may end up on the big screen some day. Thanks again for eveything!
Besides the awesome furnishings and retro decor, we loved the pool area. It was a great place fo me and my brothers to do a get together. Life gets so busy you forget what it is like to relax. We had a ball! I swear some of the stuff on the walls looked like home, growing up in New York in the 60's. The nearby beach is spectacular. We also did Busch Gardens and Universal. Thanks again for a wonderful time. I have already toild my friends all about it so expect a few more New Yorkers here.
From the moment we walked into the place we felt totally relaxed. Free internet and long distance helped with business needs. Midnight skinny dip within the privacy of the backyard. Loved the neon lights! Right near lots of great shopping and restaurants and they had great suggestions of hole in the wall dining places. Thanks so much! We'll be back!
Only minutes from endless shopping, and Siesta Key's world renowned beaches on the Gulf of Mexico. Easy drive to Busch Gardens, Disney, Universal, Seaworld and all other Orlando /Kissimmee attractions without being right in the hustle and bustle of it all.
