Absolutely awesome!

  • 5 of 5

This house was like our home for this week vacation. It is filled with warmth and has a definit personal touch. The pool was great for our 8 year old daughter, but to tell you the truth, we all enjoyed it a lot.

The house is clean and has everything that a family would ever need for a stay in Sarasota. It is bright with natural sun light and beautifully furnished. John Clement is very helpful with guest's questions or concerns. It was our first time in Saratoga and it was an awesome experience. We will definitely come back.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here. The house and furniture was very comfortable. The location is great for visiting nearby areas and beaches. We loved having the pool to hang out in on the days we weren't sight seeing.

Great place to stay with family or solo. Lots of space.

  • 5 of 5

I cannot put into words what I felt when entering your home. A sense of peace can't over me and I needed it due to the long and stormy drive in. This wonderful home is equipped with all that we needed and then some. Thank you a million times and look forward to my next stay.

Even better than pictures

  • 5 of 5

We were so very happy with this property Our only regret is we didn't stay longer! Immediately we were very impressed with the property - pictures did not do it justice. Its so roomy. Everything was in top shape and extremely clean and well cared for. The owner was above&beyond helpful, easy to work with- from booking to checkout and everything in between. Before we arrived we received the most helpful email detailing all the things in the house we would need to know with photographs It made planning for the trip easy and made us feel at home right away since there was no "figuring it all out' process when we checked in after a long day of travel. That's huge for me. Even things in the house are clearly labeled so you feel right at home right away.

We loved the pool and used it several times a day. It was perfect for the 2 of us to enjoy the sun and float away the day. The entire home was nice- but the pool made this perfect.

We loved how large the master bedroom was with a huge walk in closet and large bathroom. Our only slight negative is the shower/tub in the master sits quite high but is not deep so you have to step up quite high Because I wear contacts (not in shower) and am quite short I didn't feel safe stepping up and down that high - but it was no worries at all we just used the other full bathroom which actually worked well since you could enter directly from the pool It worked well for us.

We cooked in nearly every night and found the kitchen to be well stocked You can tell the owners take a lot of pride in the home. We loved the location - very easy to get to Siesta Key, shopping, grocery stores, but yet it felt tucked away and quiet Best of both worlds.

It was quite warm while we were there - found AC ceiling fans and a dehumidifier feature kept the house very comfortable.

The bedrooms are on complete opposite sides of the home and there is a pocket door that you can close from living room so although the 2nd bedroom does not have direct access to the full bath- you could close for privacy making this a great property great to share with another couple etc

We loved the library and it made for a cozy area to relax each night.

Loved having the full garage it kept the car cool and safe and because it leads right into the kitchen it was easy to unload.

We almost didn't want to share so we can keep it as our secret- but the owners deserves positive notes it was so great Minutes into being there we already wanted to plan to return

Tranquil oasis....perfect to rest and restore your spirit while being close to points of interest.

  • 5 of 5

Property is beautifully and uniquely decorated and well maintained. This rental is close to Siesta Key, shopping and restaurants as well as a short walk to a beautiful nature preserve.The owner was very kind and quick to respond to any questions we had. We only wish we had more time to explore this beautiful area. Hope we will be able to return and stay longer next time. It truly was a wonderful "home away from home".

Peaceful Oasis

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I both picked this house from the Siesta Key listings independent of each other so we had a good feeling it was the right one for us. The photos were appealing and the reviews were good. In addition, it had a small, heated pool in a lanai. We live in NC and it has been a summer marked by news reports of people losing limbs to sharks along our coastline so a pool was very appealing to us. When we arrived at John's home and walked in, the house was more spacious than it had appeared in the photos. The floor plan is such that there are separate areas to which people can retreat when privacy is desired yet plenty of space for togetherness. From a practical standpoint, everything necessary is provided: the kitchen is well stocked, there is a washer/dryer in the separate laundry room as well as internet and TV with multiple channels. And we spent a lot of time in the lanai, the perfect place for swimming, reading, eating and relaxing. The house is very convenient to restaurants and beaches. We highly recommend INKANTO, a Peruvian restaurant. We had never had Peruvian food before but we all thoroughly enjoyed it as well as many of the other restaurants in Sarasota/Siesta Key, especially El Toro Bravo (Mexican), Greek Taverna and Solorzano Bros. Pizza (delivering till 4AM!) Siesta Key beach was great but we enjoyed Lido Beach and Casey Key Beach even more for their ease of parking and convenience. And yes, we did swim in the ocean and encountered no danger! John gave us his cell phone number. We had no problems at all during the stay so we communicated with him only at the beginning and end of the week. He was always pleasant and helpful as well as easy to reach. I highly recommend his home for a relaxing vacation.
