Indian Beach/Sapphire Shores House Rental Photos and Description

6 Bedrooms, 6 Bathrooms, Loft, Sleeps 14


Live in paradise! Experience the true serenity of Sarasota Bay with this beautiful home. This multi-million home offers spacious living space and breath taking views in the heart of beautiful Sarasota. Enjoy magnificent sunsets and private white sand beach in the comfort of your own magnificent Mediterranean home. For a real resort experience, we offer kayaks, a ping-pong table and more at your own accommodation.

We understand that you have many choices when it comes to choosing a house in Sarasota. However, in all honesty, you are not renting a regular vacation rental when you book this home. You are renting an experience and memories that will last forever. Having the water in your backyard and seeing the most amazing sunsets in the world while the kids are kayaking or fishing in front of you is a feeling that few are lucky enough to experience in a lifetime.... We promise you that the experience will be unbelievable as it has for so many other renters before you and we are so grateful we can offer this paradise to you and your family that no other homes in the area can offer…

It really does not get any better than this and we invite you with open arms to come live the dream. If your dates are not open on our calendar, we also rent the neighborhing home :) (Homeaway Listing #338161)

We didnt want to leave

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about this place! I loved everything, the location right on the water was amazing. So relaxing! The pool was great, we enjoyed using the kayaks. The balcony off the master was an amazing place to enjoy our morning coffee. The master overall was breathtaking. The large open floor plan on the main floor was perfect and the kitchen had everything we could possibly need. The two refrigerators came in handy. Literally we didn't want to leave.

Spacious house in great location with spectacular view

  • 4 of 5

This house is spacious and in an excellent location, with a great view of the bay towards the west between land and Long Boat Key. The pool is great for the family to jump in and there is a small private beach with kayaks for rowing out. The kitchen and living space downstairs are very nice and the kitchen is large and nice for cooking meals at home. The only thing that we would object to and prevents us from giving 5 stars are some of the beds. The one in the master bedroom is fine and there is a balcony in front of that room with a great view. The beds in the other rooms could stand to be improved to queen size with good mattresses which would instantly make our rating 5 stars. There was a problem with the TV access which was not resolved but I assume that is only temporary.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words :) After double checking all of the beds in the house one by one with a measuring tape, they are in fact all queens except for kings in the two master bedrooms.

We stayed at this home for a week because our daughter was getting married at the Ca D'Zan Mansion nearby. It was absolutely perfect for the family members who came to stay with us and those who stopped by for a visit or a meal. The house is large and roomy, has amazing views and is 10- 15 minutes from everything in Sarasota. Sitting in the hot tub every night with a drink and watching the boats and birds on the ocean was truly magical...

The few requests we made were attended to immediately and with a smile. Some of the kitchen stuff is dated, but we alerted ownership to it and they are all about improving the experience for renters. We will definitely be back!

You won't be dissapointed !!!!

  • 5 of 5

An amazing property in a safe friendly neighborhood! We used the pool and hot tub everyday, as well as the kayaks. We saw fish and dolphins everyday, as well as as view of downtown Sarasota and the bridge over to the Lido Keys etc! We have a large family and never felt cramped. Having the large sliding doors stack and slide into the wall opened up the patio to the house as well! Simply amazing, and hope to get back ! Without any hesitation I would book a stay here again! The owner was great to work with, and one issue we had due to a power outage was resolved immediately on a Sunday! The kitchen pantry was huge and allowed for all out food to be out of sight! There are 2 washing machines and 2 dryers! Also in the laundry iron is an extra refrigerator which we used. The garage is attached and has a ping pong table the kids enjoyed too! We didn't want to leave! This property is worth every penny, book it!!!

spectacular home, perfect for large families

  • 5 of 5

This home provided us with a perfect venue to vacation with all our children and grandchildren! The pool, hot tub, small beach, ping pong table, kayaks and large fenced grassy yard allowed everyone to recreate in close proximity.The kitchen and living areas were comfortable and perfect for enjoying meals together. What special memories we will have of our time together. Thanks to the owner who was responsive to our every need.
