Honesty in Business

  • 5 of 5

I unfortunately had to cancel my trip to Sarasota. We had made reservations six months in advance for this coming April (2015) and due to unexpected bills had to cancel our reservations in December. Eddie was great to deal with and after filling our space, with another lucky renter, returned our deposit in full within two weeks of his renting the property!!

I unfortunately cannot comment on the property itself but on the people who own it. They have been great to deal with, friendly and honest. We will be renting this property in the future.

Thank you Eddie and Wendy.

Owner's Response: If we get a cancellation, we re-advertise as soon as possible and also reach out to others who inquired about the same dates etc. Most of the time a guest would be refunded, or at least offered new dates in the future etc. We also recommend that travel insurance is taken out and we do help owners recover lost funds due to unforeseen circumstances.

Location, location, location...

  • 5 of 5

After a family trip to Disney World we needed to rest and enjoy the beach. This house is just perfect for shopping (stores within 5 min + Premium Outlet 20 min), beaches (we did 5 and never drove more than 30 min), pool + tennis + BBQ (1 min) and restaurants (Siesta Key 10 min). We also loved the clean, spacious and well equipped house. You don't need to bring anything... tennis rackets, beach chairs, washing liquid, books, puzzle...all there!

Now to the communication with the owner: booking, payment and check out all done online. Contract, welcome guide and response time were the best I have seen so far. You can sleep in peace with this kind of service!

Will I recommend this place? Yes! Was is great value for money? Yes! Do you need to look elsewhere? No unless you have too much time or money or both.

First impression - Wow! Space; comfort.

  • 5 of 5

Coming from England, the first impression is - so much space. I felt at home at once! The travel instructions were very clear which made the property very easy to find. The key was to be found in a container hanging on the front door - I personally found it difficult to open but my husband managed it by turning the box upside down after setting the combination. It was comforting to know that should we have encountered any difficulties, people were a phone call away who could help.

The villa location on the complex was just walking distance from the pool which was kept at a lovely temperature. It was close to the tennis court as well.

Everywhere in the villa was clean and tidy when we arrived, the kitchen was well equipped and the good laundry facilities ensured I could bring home a case full of clean clothes - such a luxury! Beach towels, towels and linen were plentiful, also a well stocked games cupboard if needed.

The estate was also very attractive and well kept - just don't stand under the pine trees - a falling pine cone could hurt you!

The villa location was close to the Tamiami Trail which runs through Sarasota, which made access to the beaches fairly simple. Siesta Key is huge, where on Sunday evenings, a group of drummers 'drum down the sun', an evocative gathering. Lido Beach, our favourite, was about 20 minutes drive, near the always interesting St Armands Circle. Anna-Marie Island is worth a visit, again for the beach and the small town feel and the ice cream from the candy-striped shop on legs.

As we knew people in Sarasota, they took us to Spanish Point for lunch where there was a live singer. There was also one at Sniki-Tiki (Captain Curt's) on Siesta - to be recommended. The fish restaurant on Casey Key is good too.

A visit to the outlet mall at Ellerton's is a must if you want to shop - great value for money.

I did walk to Sarasota Square Mall from the villa while my husband played golf - it was no distance, but crossing the roads is frightening.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this villa to friends and family. The owners were very good in answering my questions quickly prior to my booking.

My one regret - that I couldn't stay longer. Who knows - maybe next time . . .!

Excellent holiday in Sarasota

  • 5 of 5

We stayed two weeks and enjoyed every minute. The condo was clean and well-maintained and the neighborhood was quiet and friendly. We took advantage of the swimming pool, jacuzzi and tennis court; however, we spent most of our time enjoying the many beautiful beaches close by. We also shopped at St. Armand's Circle, biked on Anna Maria Island, went to movies at the nearby theater, watched a baseball game and visited the Dali Museum in Tampa, and took a day trip to Disney World in Orlando. We ate many meals at home (that's what it felt like anyways) and also dined out at the various restaurants in the area. Yes, the temperature was hot in the afternoon and it rained a few times in the evening, but there was plenty of good weather and sunshine to go around! If you are planning a getaway in Sarasota, we highly recommend staying at this villa.

Perfect place to stay in Sarasota

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful home and grounds. So quiet, immaculately clean and attention to every detail. We were surprised on how well equipped the home was right down to lawn chairs, towels and tubes for the beach. How often do you go on vacation and feel like you actually live there after a couple of days. Eddy and Wendy are always available by email to answer any questions but paper work we received made things pretty easy.

Thanks for considering our property. Let us know if you have stayed before!!

For many people, planning a Sarasota vacation is as simple as getting away from it all, amidst the splendor of sun, sand and beautiful weather that are the Gulf Coast's greatest natural resources. For them, doing nothing is the whole point.

But mere relaxation is not enough for everyone. Thankfully, Sarasota has action-packed activities, attractions and sightseeing that can fill the vacation calendar of even the most devoted traveller.

Start with the area's vibrant arts scene, anchored by the world-famous collection of paintings at the Ringling Museum of Art. After viewing the museum's large array of Rubens canvasses, you can stroll across the museum grounds to John Ringling's Ca D'Zan Mansion -- a masterpiece of Venetian Gothic architecture -- or gaze at the memorabilia housed in the Ringling Circus Museum. And with a nationally recognized opera house, ballet company, symphony orchestra and multiple theaters located just a mile down the road, Ringling is merely the start of a Sarasota arts adventure.

You'll want to devote a day (and probably a few nights) to exploring downtown Sarasota's historic neighborhoods, including the quaint Towles Court art district, which is densely packed with brightly painted wooden homes filled with galleries, shops and restaurants. Main Street is a destination for locals or visitors seeking some of the best cuisine and shopping in Sarasota, along with live music and chic bars, all arranged into an area that begs to be strolled.

Head deeper into Sarasota and you'll find some of the best preserved natural lands in Florida, especially the gigantic Myakka River State Park, which offers hundreds of miles of hiking trails, campgrounds, cabin rentals, and air boat tours. Casual visitors can climb a wooden tower that extends above the tree canopy to see red-tailed hawks circling for prey, otters and foxes scurrying along wooded trails, or alligators sunning on the shore of Myakka River (from a safe distance, of course).

Of course, if you want to guarantee an encounter with tropical wildlife, you can head to Sarasota Jungle Gardens. The animal park will put you face-to-face with some of the amazing birds, reptiles and mammals that call Sarasota home.

Sarasota's mild climate has also made it into an international golf destination, with dozens of courses in the area designed by some of the biggest names in the sport. If you'd rather be a spectator than a participant, head to Ed Smith Stadium, the spring training headquarters of the Baltimore Orioles and home to a minor league franchise.

Things to do don't stop at the Sarasota city limits. Within a short drive are the scattered towns that make up the greater Sarasota area, each with its own character and style. Venice is the biggest little town in the area, with all the amenities and attractions of downtown Sarasota presented in a quieter setting. Osprey and Nokomis have a slow and sleepy vibe, while a short drive east to Myakka City will introduce you to the rural heritage that made Sarasota what it is today.

So sure, sit on the beach as much as you'd like. We understand. But if you want to pack a little more into your vacation, Sarasota and Her Islands will easily oblige.
