Our family of 14 found this home to be a dream come true!! How wonderful to be able to walk to a beach of white sand with shelling, swimming, sunning and playing in the surf wonderful activities. We also enjoyed being able to walk to restaurants and a delicious ice cream parlor.
Walking to church was also possible because it was less than 10 minutes away at a leisurely walking pace.
The house provided ample space for table games, a small delightful swimming pool , and just relaxing.
The downstairs bedroom was perfect for grandparents with the younger generations taking the upstairs bedrooms.
The owner communicated with us right away and was available for any of my questions. Our group consisted of 5 adults and 3 grand kids. Our son arrived on the last three days. The location and quiet neighborhood were awesome. The home provided privacy and enjoyable atmosphere for our stay. The kids enjoyed swimming in the pool and we each cool beverages as we watched them play. It was just a short walk to Lido Beach, stores and restaurants on St. Armand Circle. There were sunsets that will take your breath away. My husband and I went for early morning walks to St. Armand Circle and Lido Beach. We all went to Lido Beach during early evenings when it was a little cooler and stayed for hours. This was the most relaxed vacation that we've had and it had to do with the large house and location. We hope to rent again next year.
We had a wonderful vacation week, June 13, 2015, in the perfect house for our large family! There was ample room for 4 couples and 4 grandchildren. The home was very nice and the pool was greatly enjoyed. Thank you!
We had three families (consisting of 8 adults and 6 kids) who stayed in this home very comfortably for a week! We arrived a little early and the cleaning staff was there. She was nice enough to let us keep our bags in the garage while we ventured out in the area. Upon our return, the house was clean and the bed linens were left on our beds to prepare. Some were actually still in the dryer. That was good for us as we wanted to make sure things were clean and in order. The owner was a pleasure to deal with, the house was very spacious, fully stocked with all the amenities. The location is perfect! Walking distance to the beach and to St. Armand Circle. However, a vehicle is necessary to be able to go shopping for necessities. Also the pool is on the small side but sufficient. We look forward to returning next year!!
If location is important, then this is the house for you. You can walk to the beach and St Armand's circle within 5 minutes. The house is also quite spacious. We found it to have a bit of a musty smell upon entering, which could be due to being closed from the long winter. The kitchen has a very nice island and lots of counterspace, with four bar stools, which unfortunately are well worn and need some new padding. The pool is nice, but a bit smaller than expected. Most of the afternoon sun is shaded by the house so it's perfect for those wanting a shaded patio. We thought the pool was going to be heated but you must request it apparently. Just a heads up so you don't make the same mistake we did.
This is a beautiful house in an excellent location. It far exceeded our expectations,the whole process from booking to our holiday was made very easy by the owners who always replied promptly to any queries that we had. I would recommend this house without hesitation to anybody wanting a larger property for a family group. The beach is only a 5 minute walk away as are the lovely shops,bars and restaurants of St armands Circle. Downdown Sarasota is a short drive away or you can always hop on the local bus if you wish!!
