Sarasota has many unique & wonderfully quirky things to- but the 3 that are extraordinary are Siesta Beach, Ringling Musuem and the amount of Cultural Events taking place throughout the town. Siesta Beach is worth researching. You will find it commonly ranks #1 in the COUNTRY (VOTED #1 in USA)! The water is Caribbean Turquoise and the sand is (honestly) baby powder soft and white. The cultural events are huge. International Film Festival has grown to be a locals favorite event and brings in A-list movie stars and Directors. Sarasota Orchestra, Theatre, Play Houses, Opera, Artist Studios, Galleries, Lectures and Museums. The most famous is the Ringling Museum with it's waterfront mansion, art museum, courtyard and world famous miniature circus exhibit is great for the whole family-that's a must to checkout. The Van Wezel is Downtown on the water and holds premier engagements.

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 cottage in 2009
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 to quietness of the street and neighborhood. The charming Historic Cottages and Bungalows with towering oak trees and lush tropical neighborhood reminds me of Old FLorida 25 years ago....
LOCATION and Sarasota's Chic Key West Style Cottage!

I'm going to call my friend who's the Editor of a National Home & Garden (you know the one) and send her pictures of this fabulous cottage! It is outstanding! It's high on my list to come back.
We had the best time gathering our family of all ages. The location offered something for everyone from young to old. We all went our separate ways getting into the downtown area and beyond. The owners supplied us with beach stuff that proved to save us hundreds of dollars PER DAY! Renting beach stuff, 1 chair and 1 umbrella is $46 PER DAY and we have a large group…this alone compensated for the rental prices! It’s a no brainer, stay here and save money. Plus free parking, Wi-Fi, movies and laundry. Cooking meals too. WE saved so much money as a group. The cottages were all adorable. The owners we great. We will come back every year because this was really great!
When we first found this cottage on line we feel in love with it. After we rented it two years ago we knew we wanted to come back to it.
We rented the front two bedroom, two bath unit first and found it to have everything we wanted. It is is so comfortable and well decorated along with being walking distance (we are walkers) to downtown and Whole Foods. This winter we rented the rear unit - a one bedroom, one bath. It was fine but we did miss the space and the ambiance of the two bedroom unit. Oh yes. we were invited to the Potluck at Laurel Park and met some very friendly people.
Thanks to Mikelan and Jeff.
We wanted to be able to walk to main street, and my daughter liked the cute photos so we rented. It had a well stocked kitchen, we were able to cook pasta, burritos, eggs to eat in some nights. it was pretty and in a nice area. The owner was accessible when needed. It was perfectly fine overall but with lots of little glitches. The mattress is on a frame with slats, and the slats are not secure-the first night the mattress was sagging, and the second night my husbands middle was halfway to the floor- -I crawled under the bed to investigate -we found the slats were askew with no support in place-my husband held up the mattress and I moved the slats into place for a temporary fix-but my husband had 2 bad nights. Next night we hear a crash and our canned goods are on the floor-the kitchen cabinet shelf had fallen since it was missing a corner support. There is an AC unit in the living room which does reach the bedroom-but the bathroom had no ventilation at all and if you wanted privacy and closed the door it got quite hot and unpleasant. All the windows are nailed or painted shut-I tried to open them for fresh air on cool nights and couldnt- except for one large window in the kitchen that opened easily and had no lock at all which worried me. there was no smoke detector. I enjoyed the yard but I wished the pile of broken furniture and paint cans in back of the shed was disposed of-only seen if you walked around the yard-I did give feedback to the owner Jeff who was very receptive.
The place is just as pictured. It is small but has everything you need in the kitchen, plus TV and Internet. Delightful "Old Florida" neighborhood within easy walking distance of dining and groceries (Publix and Whole Foods). Our only suggestion is that for the high rental price we would have appreciated a better mattress and pillows on the bed. We did receive immediate service from the owner when the refrigerator went on the blink.
I think anyone would find this place wonderful. It was just what we wanted at a very fair price.
I give it 2 thumbs up. I have a toddler so I loved the backyard fenced area where he could run around without me worrying about him. The owners even brought over toys and a blowup pool for him. I found 1 broken beach chair which was no problem because the owners have a shed with extra everything. I could tell it was managed very well.
While looking for a house to buy, we stayed a week at The Coral Cottage. It was centrally located downtown with easy access north or south. Beaches were a short drive with ample parking FREE! We liked the owner who was friendly and attentive when asked, but gave us our privacy. Very friendly neighborhood. WE bought a house and made local friends in the neighborhood. Walking everywhere made us feel plugged in as a local.
Quiet location yet only 2 blocks from downtown and The Harbor (Marina Jack)!
