About Carol

Currently living in Ohio.

Carol purchased this house in 2012

Why Carol chose Sarasota

Have family members living in Sarasota.

What makes this house unique

Fell in love with this property when I saw the privacy and landscape of the back yard and patio areas, that gives it the feeling of a private paradise. Plenty of Bamboo Trees along with a Lemon and a Grapefruit Tree.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you for an absolutely wonderful FIRST experience with VBRO. Your home was the perfect place for our family to come back to every day and to start every day in.

We appreciate the GENEROUS Supplies you provide. From snacks to beach equipment - this is the way I would have dreamed of being able to function! No need to buy so many things. The beach chairs are comfy and our children loved the toys.

We also used the books and appreciated the selection. Same with the movies.

Basically we had zero disappointments with our stay and would do it again. Thank you for how you blessed our family.

A great place to stay. Would recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in the Sarasota area.

  • 5 of 5

This place truly has the comforts of home. We stayed in Carol's house for over 3 weeks and loved every minute of it. The kitchen is stocked very nicely, as we did a lot of our own cooking. We loved the back patio, and spend a lot of time eating, relaxing and socializing out there. There is shade most all day long because of the wonderful trees. also a lot of tropical plants surrounding the patio. The evenings we spent outside were awesome. It is a very private place, and in a quiet neighborhood. The location was also very convenient for us, close to restaurants, beaches, and shopping. Carol has thought of everything to make her guests feel comfortable and at home. We give it 5 stars. A very enjoyable experience! Ray and Ruby

Well furnished and managed

  • 5 of 5

The house is well furnished and well located. The owner has provided good clear instructions regarding entry and it was clean and tidy when we arrived. I highly recommend the property and would certainly like to rent it again when in Sarasota.

My family and me really enjoyed our staying in Carolyn apartment. It was really nice, and it was furnished with everything you might need. Her instructions were extremely clear and she was always a phone call away for any help we might have need. The location of the house is also perfect as it is close to a supermarkets, a park, and the sea (car distance).

I highly reccomend it!

Super comfortable and family friendly

  • 5 of 5

We waited until the last minute to reserve a place to stay for Spring break and we really lucked out when we found this house. The owners of this home obviously take pride in not only taking care of this home but also in hosting visitors and renters.

We have a family of 6 with kids aging from 7 to 15. We were comfortable and minutes away from three really great beaches - Siesta Key (the closest), Lido and Venice. We also enjoyed a day at Myakka River State Park where we enjoyed seeing indigenous wild life including alligators, took rides on an air boat, and tram.

Our kids rated this one of our best vacations ever...much because of so many things being close and convenient...and a place to come back to that was so comfortable. There are a lot of very nice restaurants around...but we chose to eat most of our meals at the house. The kitchen is well stocked and there are a variety of local grocery stores just blocks away.

We are very happy with our choice and would definitely recommend for anyone looking for somewhere to stay in this area to consider this rental if it is available.

Owner's Response: Thank you for such a nice review. I am so glad you and your family had a wonderful time. I remember doing some of the same things with my kids when we would come down and visit with my mom. If you decide to come back to the area, please note I do give discounts to returning guests. Thanks Again.

Very well equipped; owner very responsive

  • 4 of 5

My sister, my husband and I stayed for the month of March. Upon arriving we found the home to be in a lovely neighborhood; surrounded by privacy fences; and secure. The home is very well stocked with all the conveniences of home. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. We would happily return to this home for vacation. The very few minor issues we had were handled by Carolyn immediately!
