About Carol

Currently living in Ohio.

Carol purchased this house in 2012

Why Carol chose Vamo

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.

The house is equipped with everything one could possibly need.The location is close to Sarasota,Tamiami Trail and the beautiful beaches of Siesta Key,Nokomis and Venice.The owner is very pleasant and responsive -neighborhood is quiet with well kept homes.The weather was outstanding-80’s most days(like stepping into summer)and 60’s at night.This was our third visit to Sarasota and we will definitely be back.Would definitely rent this house again if available;will bring bikes and kayaks next time. Thanks for a great experience C

Be sure of the lease agreement

  • 2 of 5

From 1 to 10 with 10 highest. 2 The neighborhood was sketchy. Popcorn ceiling is falling off ceiling inside and in the garage. The mattresses are not comfortable The people ear was there doing repairs on cracked driveway and painting. Due to Emma she said. You cannot rely on Homeaway to assist.

Siesta key beach is lovely and did not get crowded until the day after Christmas. I do love Venice and Sarasota.

I will not use Homeaway again

Owner's Response: I have put over $20,000 in upgrades to maintain my home in the last 2 years. I wouldn't be doing this if the neighborhood was in poor condition. The neighbors are great! It’s a nice area to walk around and able to walk down to the end of the street and sit by the water. The maintenance is planned for times I come down and the house is not rented. But there are times when things occur while guests are there that need to be maintained. During those times my guests have been great in letting items get repaired. I normally give them a nice gift certificate to a local restaurant, for their inconvenience. They always comment that they appreciate the thoughtfulness, but it wasn’t necessary. This December guest agreed to allow the maintenance, then called HomeAway to complain and fabricated other issues. I asked the guest to come out and talk with me, since I was in the garage with the maintenance folks, but she never came out. HomeAway confirmed the lease allows access for maintenance and repairs with prior notification. The December guest was the first guest I have had that said one thing but did the opposite. She requested a discount for the month saying she would be alone, which I gave her. Then called and said a friend was coming with and they would like to come a day earlier. I allowed all this and didn't charge her extra for the guest or extra day. Once here I asked if they wanted the Christmas decorations up inside (Tree, etc.). She said yes. Afterwards I received text stating thanks, I love the decorations. A day later I received text saying she was mad I entered the home. The above comments/complaints are due to her being upset about not being compensated for the maintenance items I did while she was there. Both HomeAway and I stated she had already received $800+ discounts (not being charged for extra person and extra day).

Cozy confortable home- casa hermosa y acogedora

  • 5 of 5

La casa es muy acogedora, amplia y bien dotada (encontramos todo lo que uno puede necesitar e incluso mas). El vecindario es tranquilo, seguro y bonito. Siempre tuvimos respuesta inmediata y eficaz de la propietaria cuando surgieron dudas. La hermosa playa de Siesta Key esta a pocos minutos, al igual que Westfield Sarasota Square y YMCA. La casa resulto ser mucho mejor de lo que se alcanza a ver en las fotos.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your nice review. I had the review translated. "The house is very cozy, spacious and well endowed (we find everything one can need and even more). The neighborhood is quiet, safe and beautiful. We always had immediate and effective response from the owner when doubts arose. The beautiful Siesta Key beach is just minutes away, as is Westfield Sarasota Square and YMCA. The house proved to be much better than what you see in the photos."

Sweet, clean house w/ample room, close to beaches

  • 5 of 5

This house was exactly as other reviews had stated. It was a sweet, clean place but had ample room for four adults and a toddler. Was a wonderful place to come back to at the end of the day. Had everything we could need including beach towels, cooler, chairs, umbrellas and toys which made our beach experience even better (something you won't get if you stay in a hotel!). We did a day trip to Disney and the travel was not bad, we left at 6 a.m. and got back at midnight. Overall I would love to come back to the Sarasota/Siesta Key area as it was beautiful and would definitely rent this property again as it was a great experience! The owner was also very responsive to any questions/concerns that I had, was personable and even responded to something that needed to be fixed in less than 12 hours.

Owner's Response: Thanks Mary for being our guest and for such a great review. You are the reason, nice caring people, that we work so hard to keep our vacation home in A1 condition. Thanks for working with us and allowing us access to repair one item damaged by the June guests.

Clean, sweet little house but with ample room - close to the beach, restaurants, etc.

  • 5 of 5

This house was a wonderful stay for our week-long vacation with four adults and a toddler. We loved how close it was to Siesta Key and Turtle Beach and there were plenty of restaurants and stores (grocery, Target, Lowes, etc.) so that we could easily get what we needed for the week. It was also wonderful because there were beach towels, chairs and toys available which made our beach experience even better. I would definitely visit Siesta Key/Sarasota again as it was a beautiful area and I would definitely rent this property again as it was exactly what we needed and very nice. The owner was extremely responsive to any questions or concerns and even had something fixed for us in less than 12 hours during our stay.
