About Mikealan OKeefe

I am a single 55+ woman who lives just around the corner, in the same neighborhood as the cottages. It's a safe and charming area. Since I reside in town, I am able to respond immediately to your needs, as well as offer you local advise. I can help you with anything from theater tickets to the best coffee shops! I have been to all the local hot spots and seen and done it all. We can advise you about area festivals.

Mikealan OKeefe purchased this House in 2009

Why Mikealan OKeefe chose Downtown

Area real estate is among the most expensive in Sarasota. Among multi-million dollar condos. It's the best location in Sarasota to have an active, engaging lifestyle. Downtown and close to the waterfront Harbor is like a dream come true. I have found when you get out and walk a few blocks, you see so much more and feel connected to the area. I think it's ideal for anyone who wants to enjoy the city, as well as beaches. I like the quietness of the streets and neighborhood. The charming Historic Cottages and Bungalows with towering oak trees and lush tropical neighborhood reminds me of Old FLorida 25 years ago....

What makes this House unique

                                                                      Located in a beautiful neighborhood in old Sarasota. My wife and I are really into architecture and gardens so just walking around this area was a delight. The interior is very clean and well maintained. It is small but the great outdoor space more than makes up for it. Being refugees from a Michigan winter it was nice just to grill and chill under the palms in the backyard. Taking a stroll to Bayfront Park with our little dog and having drinks at O'Leary's Tiki bar was just one of the highlights.The only slight downside is the tiny bathroom and shower.

                                                                      Catherine B.

                                                                      Great location that's close to everything downtown. Safe to walk, even at night. It was our first stay here, and the one bedroom ended up a little small for us. Our dog loved having the yard to chase lizards. A problem with the oven was addressed as soon as we noticed it. We'd definitely consider renting the larger unit next time.

                                                                      Despite the weather while in Sarasota (chilly) we had a nice time.

                                                                      Judi H.

                                                                      The cottage is located in a cute neighborhood and walking to downtown was easy. We were in the back of the cottage (1 bedroom) small but cute and small bathroom. If you are over 6' 2" and 220+ lbs. showering could be challenging It's enough space for 2 people and place was clean. The mattress needs to be replaced along with the bed pillows and the pillow labels need to be removed. I turned the pillowcase so the tags weren't on the open end of the pillow case. We only had 2 bath towels, 1 hand towel and 2 face clothes. There is a washer and dryer in the shed for tenants usage - very nice. We had no beach towels - but when I texted Mikelean she had 2 brought over. The rusty broken beach chairs and umbrella in the shed need to be replaced and I would suggest that a cooler be left in each cottage for usage. The one in the shed was very dirty and inside was mole - we cleaned it out and put back in the shed. The weather was not beach worthy while there - but we did a lot of exploring.

                                                                      Loved Laurel Park

                                                                      This one bedroom was equipped with everything we needed. Decorated nicely & comfortably. Brought our dog and he loved the backyard. Pleasant neighborhood, the location is handy to downtown, restaurants, grocery, and short drive to beach; when traffic cooperates. Not a lot of elbow room in the bathroom, none of the windows opened which would be only drawbacks.

                                                                      Owner's Response:

Quaint, cute as can be, and charming just begin to tell the story. We love to walk and it was an easy one to the downtown restaurants and watering holes. (Be sure to dine at Indigenous which is only a block away. Amazing!) Request the front cottage. Plenty of room. Mikealan is a terrific host. We will certainly go back.
